  1. I'm running an Optiplex 780 SFF with an overclocked Q6600 and an overclocked low-profile GTX 750 Ti on the stock PSU. No problems at all. My other sleeper gaming rig has an i7-6700T (it's previously had an i5-6500) and a GTX 1050 Ti running on a 300W PSU, again, no problems. You're good. Generally speaking, Optiplex PSUs tend to be good for the rated wattage. Lots of Optiplexes are leased or purchased with extended service plans, which means that Dell has a very real incentive to not load them up with Bestec PSUs that will go "bang" the first time you try to plug a discrete GPU in.
  2. [US] [Amazon] $30 for Amazon Fire 7 Tablet

    What would you consider acceptable for a new device at the $30 price point?
  3. Laptop mx150 i5-8250U

    DOTA2 yes, CS:GO yes, Shadows of Mordor not a damn chance in hell, Overwatch yes. The MX 150 is the laptop version of the GT 1030, if that gives you a frame of reference. In terms of performance, it slots in around the original GTX 750 (not the Ti).
  4. The AM4 Support till 2020 "Claim"

    Tell that to LGA 775.
  5. Older GTX 1050 Equivalent

    The 760 burns 170W and is in the 1050's neighborhood in terms of performance. If you want the 200W claim to hold through, use the 1050 Ti and HD 7950. The 7950 actually does pull down 200W. Hell, I had a 7970 that pulled a full 300W under load, and now an RX 570 that pulls down 120W could spank it in head to head benchmarks.
  6. A 1060 or 1070 FE (or ASUS/MSI blower) would probably be your best bet.
  7. Hynix NAND. That might be your RIP by itself. I've got the B350-F and haven't had any RAM stability issues with it. Download the latest BIOS (ASUS has been great about fixing RAM compatibility in their updates), try OCing to 2933 without using DOCP, and manually set your voltage to 1.38v. Usually DOCP works, sometimes it doesn't.
  8. What's the version number printed on the back of the RAM?
  9. Cars that you absolutely hate

    Hey, my Maserati does 185!
  10. Cars that you absolutely hate

    Anything that can catch mine.
  11. Open an "Item not as described" claim through eBay, include the screenshot of the seller saying that the board does support overclocking, then state that upon receiving the board, you discovered that the seller was not correct and the board does not support it. Mention the chipset being incorrectly stated as X79 when it's clearly not. The buyer wins 99% of INAD claims, so you'll get your money back and the seller will have to pay for return shipping. In this case, it's justified. Moral of the story from a seller's point of view: if you don't know what you're selling, don't sell it, or at least don't give definitive answers about what it can do.
  12. Is my PSU or my MoBo?

    You can run a locked i5/1060 system on a 300W PSU without it ever breaking a sweat. I think a garbage-tier Logisys/Bestec/Diablotek/"Chinese Firecracker Factory 500W+ 80 GOL" unit is more likely the problem here.
  13. Is my PSU or my MoBo?

    What brand and model? Are you using the required PCIe cable connector from the PSU to the graphics card? Not all 500W PSUs are created equal.
