  1. I have found a few sources saying it is technically compatible with the AMD A8-5550M but if its possible for an end user to upgrade to it is a different matter. Besides, the AMD A8-5550M is not all that powerful compared to any modern cpu. It might be wiser to just upgrade to a new laptop than to try and re use this old one. However if you are willing to spend a few bucks and try, they are available on ebay for around 20$(just make sure you buy one that has the pin grid array). You would probably also need to find the correct drivers to use the cpu. All i can say is best of luck.

  2. Read your own highlighted text, It is the last pin grid array socket, meaning it still has the pin grid array socket. All processors after it use bga. FS1 is not exclusively bga
  3. it actually seems like op has a up gradable cpu socket in this laptop http://buysnip.com/product/hp-probook-455-445-g1-laptop-motherboard-722818-501/
  4. Do you want to replace the entire top of your desk? Or just a section of it? Because large touchscreen monitors can be quite pricey especially if you want a multi touch one.
  5. ran the numbers and your right, i would recommend op to look into lower wattage psu's https://outervision.com/b/LeuGBL
  6. thanks, what is releasing and when ? because i dont think it will be available in my country at launch.
  7. Budget (including currency): 1500 euro Country: netherlands Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly triple A games, some indie/lighter games. My cousin wants help with building a pc, and most of the stuff i can easily help him with, but Im not up to date on the latest benchmarks. so Im mainly here for advice on what cpu and gpu to get, a little help with choosing a mobo would also be appreciated (mainly which series to get, B, Z, X idk anmymore). The budget of 1500 euro is for the entire pc, so keep that in mind when choosing. All accessories (monitors and stuff) are outside of this budget and you guys don't need to worry about that.
  8. ah, sorry. i thought you accidentally posted in the wrong thread because this thread was about amd and you were suddenly talking about intel. i apologise for my mistake.
  9. Tiworker is related to windows updater, just let it run and wait till its done. Source: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/high-cpu-usage-caused-by-tiworkerexe/ae12110a-15ca-49cb-be24-c6200072b436
  10. Usually how those sites can offer those prices is by buying massive quantities in bulk directly from microsoft. Or they use a scammed credit card
  11. have you tried contacting them in any way?
  12. While technically the i7 9700 beats the ryzen 3700x in gaming, the results are extremeley close in most titles. I would personally go for a 3700x because the motherboards can be a lot cheaper. Also the ryzen beats the i7 in almost everything non gaming because of the extra threads.
  13. Could be that it is scanning your network data for potential virus activities. see if you can turn off a option like "network monitoring"
  14. We usually use tweakers pricewatch, its basically like pcpartpicker. https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/
