    The GT 1030 GDDR5 Isn't a bad card at all

    There are sff pre-built systems that can't deliver 75 watts to the pcie slot. This is a good option for those systems.
  2. Thanks. That's what I figured. Most tests I looked at showed almost no difference between 1600 and 1333.
  3. I have a Gigabyte 970a-UD3P motherboard and a FX6300 cpu. I've had Corsair vengeance ddr3 1600mhz ram 2x4gb for years. With xmp enabled it runs at 1600mhz. I recently saw 2x4gb micron 12800u 1600mhz ram for $15 and figured what the hell, why not? Pc boots and runs fine at the default 1333mhz. The xmp profile is gone. I manually set the ram frequency to 1600 and I got an error that boot failed. I tried increasing the voltage to 1.55 from 1.5 but that didn't work. I don't know if this is related but when I use gigabytes system viewer in windows it says that the max bandwidth on the corsair ram is 667 and the micron ram is 800 So two questions. One, anything easy I can try? I'm not going to spend hours messing with timings. Two, I'm not doing any video editing and I usually don't have that many programs running at once. If I can't get it sorted, Is it better to have 8gb running at 1600mhz or 16gb running at 1333?

    Need help picking a graphics card for Lenovo PC

    Rx 550 is another option. I think it's a 50w draw.

    How much are you paying for these cards? Where are you located? Can your power supply handle a 660ti (some need 2 6pin power connectors and some are 6+8)
