    Will 24 GB RaM cause issues?

    It should not create issues. If the sets are different speeds and cas timings...then all modules will defer to the speeds and timings of your slowest module. Ideally you want all of the modules to be the exact same brand model and speeds etc...

    i need help

    What is your budget for a CPU anyhow? Is there any particular reason why you are opting for the Intel i3. I went from an Intel i3-->i5 and the performance increase was totally worth the extra $20 I spent.

    They are application files. I'm pretty sure that the games/applications wont load

    Migrating D:

    I have a 1TB HDD for my game library and a few other applications. I have another HDD for files and pictures. I want to migrate the HDD (D:) to a new SSD. Questions is... I have Acronis Disk Director that I have used to migrate an OS, but I have never used it to migrate a "D:" drive. When I do it...do I just complete the migration...then assign "D:" to the new SSD and remove the old HDD from the system like planned. Are there steps that I am missing in this plan of mine. Thanks for the replies

    Which aio cooler should I get for kraken g12

    I think any asetek cooler would work like a corsair H40. I believe off the top of my head. :)

    GPU upgrade fence jump or sit tight

    LOL...I remember when the FX 9590 got trolled for being too high of a TDP. Even the 125W FX 8350 was criticized for being power hungry. Now people are happy with 180-220W cpu's... Very funny to me. Another reason to never become a fanboy or criticize too harshly.

    That would GREATLY depend on what you want to do with the system. The i9 9900k is a super fast processor, but so are 2 2080's. However, not everything works well in NVLink. I have noticed that when it comes to benchmarks in 3dMark software that the best scores are with a i9 7980xe, but that is just so that they can get the best CPU score, which will inherently increase their combined score. One the other hand, a 7980xe would not be as good as a 9900k in games because of the better performance per core. Again, back to the "what do you want to do with the system" question. Depends.

    Best used gpu.... for $70..... max.

    I would stay away from anything with just 2gb vram. Only get 3gb+ models.

    Have you tried googling this topic or problem. I found this pretty quick. Give this guide a try and let us know how it goes. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/8ounnf/full_guide_to_playing_stretched_in_fortnite/

    Suggest which is better

    I have used my rx 580 4gb with both a i5 3570 and an i7 3770 playing battlefield 4, 1 and V, fortnite, apex legends, pubg, star trek online, and many more. I can confidently say that the i7 3770 did give me a noticeable performance increase. The i5 3570 does well enough, but believe me. In the battlefield games and fortnite, my fps went up. I was able to benchmark valley, firestrike and furmark stable at 1465mhz core and 2250 memory. In bf4 i can play ultra maxed, battlefield 1 and V high with no aa, pubg maxed, apex legends maxed settings with no aa, sto maxed all settings. I play 1080p and aim for constant or near constant 75fps because i am running a 75 hz freesync display. Its not a bad card, but as already stated...only get the 4gb variant if the price is good. Then the value aspext of it will make it a good choice. If you are aiming for 100+ fps on a 100+ hz refresh rate or have a display with gsync...then go for nvidia

    Suggest which is better

    I would go for the gtx 1660, but having owned a rx 580...i would say its good too

    Help with ROG Strix RX580

    That is what i thought might be it. Was it used for mining. It could have a boss that prioritizes low voltage and clock's
