  1. I need suggestions for a gpu (please help/read)

    Look for a used 980ti, will offer better performance than a 1070 once overclocked
  2. Just buy RGB strips and change it to what you feel looks best
  3. AC games are normally poorly optimised and therefore will frag your CPU/GPU harder than most games. That's a pretty budget cooler for a £370 CPU, I would get something more aggressive
  4. Around £1500 Gaming computer

    There plenty available https://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/gpu-nvidia/2250/2295/2325/2672 I wouldn't pay that though, I only paid £560 for my 1080 like 4 months after release (Pre-1080ti price cuts)
  5. GTX 1080 + i7 6770K Poor performance

    https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20757516226 Below is a quote from a guy in that thread: "Sadly you need at least 2400 mhz Ram in DUAL-CHANNEL to keep 200 FPS + Forever.Even with a 1080 and my i7 7700k OC at 4.6 ghz, i was going down 120 - 140 sometimes and is extremelly annoyingSo i had reemplace my single-channel 16 gb ram for a dual channel ones to avoid the compatability gamble issue. Now im at 250 + FPS in low all time not even a single time i go down to 200Get the fastest Ram you can and remember DUAL-CHANNEL onlyLook this video as proud" 160 vs 220FPS in that video, same rig, just single vs dual channel, that's the same speed ram as well, not an uplift of almost 1000mhz
  6. GTX 1080 + i7 6770K Poor performance

    Exactly, your CPU and GPU are both only at 50% ish load, your GPU is being held back and so is your CPU. 2133mhz is the standard speed for DDR4. However, all boards/CPU's will run faster ram, its called XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) - all XMP sticks have a preloaded memory profile of Speed vs timings which is changed automatically. Trust me, you need to get faster ram, and 2 sticks of it, as I said, get 3000mhz or faster if you can afford, but don't go too fast as the gains are marginal above 3000mhz
  7. GTX 1080 + i7 6770K Poor performance

    it's definitely worth investigating, I think op should sell that stick and grab 2x8gb 3000mhz sticks @Drummer611
  8. New PC: CPU

    8700k if you're primarily gaming. Don't worry so much about "Meltdown" the issue has been there for years whats your budget?
  9. GTX 1080 + i7 6770K Poor performance

    Will be losing quite a chunk using one stick of slow DDR4, not saying its the sole issue, but it won't be helping if its on half bandwidth and low speed
  10. Build me a PC peasants. Aprox £600/$800

    People are going to recommend AMD purely based on your budget. For the GPU you are using, you wont see the difference in gaming as the GPU will still be the bottleneck, it only really becomes apparent on higher GPU', on high refresh screens at FPS above 100 - 120.

  11. AMD 2400g bottleneck the GPU?

    higher res lowers the importance of the CPU (its still important) as it places more stress on the GPU
  12. AMD 2400g bottleneck the GPU?

    depends on the resolution, I'm assuming 1080P if using a iGPU, in which case a little at high refresh rates
  13. Battlefield 1 SLI performance

    INB4 "It's SLI bruh, its bad, it just doesn't work and aint worth it" from some guy who's never had SLI and only read about problems with it ..... (sorry but this happens in every post like this) I haven't had SLI since November 2016. I moved from 2 970's to my current 1080 and I never really had any issues with it. Just Cause 3 and Quantum Break were the only games in my whole library that didn't offer SLI support. People will always say "its not worth it" but those same people are willing to pay +50% extra on a better GPU that offers 20% performance - no different than +100% for up to 70% in my eyes. So. What clock speed are you running the 5930k at? Have you tried a higher resolution? https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/972895/-how-to-fix-sli-performance-on-bf1-for-real-/
  14. Computer will not post or boot after case swap

    take the board out, check all the board risers are in place and nothing is shorting out
  15. Acer XB241H or another?

    Id take it providing theres no dead pixels or ghosting, that's a good deal
