Grab a motherboard speaker. Listen for beep codes and they'll generally tell you exactly what's going on. Here's one:
Also are you trying to swap out power supplies? Those tend to be the first things to go with your big...
Grab the 620w Seasonic, just a few bucks (less than $10) more and an extra 100w. I'd also say grab a 256gb SSD then a regular HDD for storage, I prefer WD black myself but whatever floats your boat! Other than that, looks great to me :)
How old is your PSU? Might be having trouble coping, though you *should* just be okay. As mnewxcv said I'd make sure you clean out your drivers first then reinstall. Also double check the PCI-E power connectors are attached to the card.
At 4k I like to think you'd like to keep the option open to add another card later. I don't know if this has been touched on in reviews, but can't see there being an option to crossfire fury x's with that cooler that takes up a fan slot. With the 980ti on the other hand, just throw in another...
Wow I honestly thought AMD was gonna bring something strong to the table, especially considering their "leaked" benchmarks. I've stopped listening to marketing a while back thankfully, but this whole misleading "built for 4k gaming" bit has to stop.
I used to be ASUS only. I'll spare the life story and answer your question: No, it generally doesn't pay to be brand loyal. My past few motherboards have been ABIT, evga, gigabyte, and now MSI. Find features you like, check some reviews to make sure there's no obvious problems, and forget about...
Will they go bankrupt? Maybe. Will they go under? Highly unlikely. Competition is needed...and I'm not saying that for the benefit of the consumer, I say that for the benefit of Intel. You think they want a Microsoft-style Monopoly court case? Nope. It's much cheaper for them in the long run to...
I got an AX860. Works great (so far!) Only thing that was off was they gave me a modular SATA power connector that was for the wrong model PSU. Figured it out after cable management so was a minor hiccup but other than that no complaints. Thanks OP!
Because we're 'murica. Shock and awe, punish the damn near defenseless country in a show of force.
Makes us incredibly weak to China, who only wants to work with us as a chess move to learn our strategies for when it inevitably turns against us.
Extremely poor decision on our part, from a defense standpoint. Showed our hand to the world (Russia, and China I'm looking at you,) and now they know our preferred method of attack, and origination points.
So at any point they decide to get cute, we are effectively neutralize.
Not even reading the article. Who makes the cpu/gpu for current consoles? Who makes APUs that are superior for the average user doing light gaming? These markets are far larger than the enthusiast market, and even in the enthusiast market, AMD video cards compete in the middle and high end every...
Sorry about that I forgot to check the thread! It will typically appear like that if you have it set above 60hz on HDMI, which is why I mentioned it. So if you set it to 120, it'll still display, just all corrupted looking.
Nowadays it's when the games I play don't run as smoothly/with as much eye candy as I like. The price range (used) generally stays the same. So figure every 2 years or so, $150-200 or so, I'd say 40-50%?
Made the move to a 144hz monitor. Sit one next to a 60hz monitor and tell me your eyes can't see the difference. But to say they shouldn't be higher than 30fps?? I want some of whatever they're smoking
@OP I just helped someone fix this the other day. I'd venture a guess you have that horrible auto-overclocking switch turned on. Epu/tpu or some such nonsense. My buddy had it turned on, and it clocked his bclk to 125hz. Check cpu-z to confirm, flick switch to off and enjoy.
Now THIS is a proper head to head article. All cards overclocked, all drawbacks mentioned (limited TDP slider.)
Either AMD has something big up its sleeves, or is shitting itself thinking about how well a higher TDP Maxwell part will clock/perform, power draw be damned.
