  1. maybe 10% or a bit more at 4k is a hard sell for $100+ extra, really need 7nm Vega/ NAVI to save us already.
  2. Eh. Shoulda gone 8700K in that case, or a 9900K with 16GBs of RAM Or those glorious $400 1920X s Also the RTX 2070 only has the same performance of that 1070ti(with OC)?
  3. You could try flashing the bios to a newer one if it exists, otherwise you'd have to exchange or warranty the card or something.

    As long as the seller looks good it's probably fine More likely you can find R5 1400/1500X/1600 CPUs for like $100 sometimes

    Probably just CPUs, given that new RX 570s/580s are so cheap, and come with 2 free games

    Had to fix some things, cheaper isn't happening unless you buy the CPU used on the cheap, maybe with a motherboard from someone local, though the ASrock Pro 4 and MSI Tomahawk B450 boards are the minimum I'd suggest buying. No reason to get the 1060 with the RX 570/580 being so cheap and coming with free games, in addition to your monitor being free-sync. The acer display here has a better for daily use VA panel instead of a TN panel That is the sketchiest SSD ever, does it even have a DRAM cache? probably just get the 860 evo while it's cheap Don't buy the cheapest PSU either Also don't trust mail in rebates to actually work, you should turn them off. You can just live without a case for a while to make your budget.

  7. Maybe try disabling hyperthreading Or use older/newer drivers. If nothing else reinstalling windows is the quickest fix for software issues.
  8. Might just be the card then if it does 1080p output under linux instead of windows, then maybe it's something in the drivers/windows.
  9. Buy the much cheaper RX 570, or a normal RX 580 at under $200 Unless you really want all 3 of the games in the bundle
  10. Try older/newer drivers? Or a Linux USB to see if it's windows.
  11. It's just the main thing to fix, Ryzen is way faster than FX CPUs. But if it's going to be a while before you'd have the money Ryzen 3000 is coming out sometime in 2019 AM4 should also mean CPU upgrade options until 2020 The only cheap boards to consider are the ASrock Pro4, and MSI Tomahawk, for the VRM per dollar basically. You could also just find an R5 1400/1500X or 1600 on ebay for $100 Ebay has 10% off today as well I think.

    Looking for a USB controller card

    You're going to spend $50 to fill a slot on your very old PC? You sure you don't just want to save that towards a Ryzen upgrade or something?
  13. For sure should have just bought a new CPU/Motherboard/DDR4 instead of that other stuff Just save up like $300 for a Ryzen 5 1600/2600, an ASrock Pro4 B450 board, and 16GBs of 3000mhz DDR4 Also you can just undervolt your GPU to drop it's power usage/heat.

    New monitor

    If anything it makes it slightly easier to see what's happening, also depends on the distance of the monitor.

    New monitor

    The cheapest G-sync one on the part picker is 400, while the free-sync ones are 200-250 You really don't need G-sync with a 240hz display, do you even notice screen tearing as is?
