  1. your CPU and ram speed would play the biggest factor here but I have a few questions. Is it every game? what settings are you running in these games that are affected? have you tried changing the settings? What connection are you running to the display? (I am assuming DP but want to check) This monitor is only 1080p from what I can find. The cpu would show its limitation... another thing to check if for a bios updated (that supports your CPU)
  2. found something that could help. Alt+F12 removed the counter on icue for me https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-experience/14/207809/turn-off-fps-counter-on-applications/
  3. Had to do a forced upgrade after my 6850K decided to die on me. now on a R7 3700x https://imgur.com/p1pgXGQ https://imgur.com/biwvChb
  4. depending on the model used, you could also monitor power draw.
  5. hmm the only thing that comes to mind is the power profile. There was issues with intel gpu drivers that would do something like that but on a system level if the power state was not set to high performance. Also maybe try turning off GPU acceleration in the browser to see if that makes a deference
  6. this! if you have no plans on using it for gaming, you could use them to load up something like PF sense and use it to power your home network. I am looking at doing this myself with some old AMD hardware.
  7. wow they look awesome myself i use a K70 RGB and a M65 RGB but this would be more for a friend of mine that is still using a Microsoft intellimouse and only just got a thermaltake mech keyboard recently.
  8. this would be a nice bump up from the 960 i am running
  9. as the guys above have stated, probably no. From the motherboard you listed it should be a decent on board sound card. If you are getting static you may have to look at how it is connected and what your listing though it with. Are you connecting though the front panel headers or from the back? are you using a headset or speakers (or both) and what brand/ model are you using? and the other fact is what is the £30 sound card? (it is very likely that your on board would be better)
  10. yeah it will work, you would just need to look at the software to config the speaker setup. if it is the same motherboard in your sig then it should be ok sound. You may hear a difference if you go a dedicated sound card (PCI/E or USB ). I have not trusted onboard sound for a while now (bought first decent sound card in 2008). sound-blaster-x-fi-xtreme-audio-pci-express this was my first experience with better sound and i have not looked back. To be honest this was me and for some people they would not hear the difference. But if you have the budget i would suggest at lest trying a sound card of some sort.
  11. from my experience it would depend more on the sound card and the config more than the speakers (at this lvl) When I was using Z906 5.1 speakers most of the time it came out as 2.1. it does not look like there is any processing done in the speakers so it may actually be what you set on the sound card.
