  1. Ok thanks for all the input gents! I'll probably end up waiting a bit and then upgrading the whole thing, was crossing my fingers that I could just upgrade the gpu.
  2. So right now I have a desktop with an FX-8350, GTX 970, 24gb of ram etc. I would love to get a little higher detail in games & up the framerate past a stable 60fps @ 1080. I play pretty much exclusively Forza at medium ish settings, and a couple other small non demanding games. My question is if I can upgrade just the gpu, keep everything else, I know it would create a bottleneck, but how bad of one? And how much does Forza demand on cpu, could I get away with it?
  3. This is true, in the future I'll make sure to keep a copy of the original
  4. It might help if considered that yes, it is the same exact link... did I bother creating a new build list every time I wanted to change something? No I just updated the same list, the components would be the exact same because they are the same list. Literally every component changed except the case & windows.
  5. And just to be clear, this isn't at all identical, yes it the same cpu, but of lot of other things changed
  6. No I definitely took the advice & genuinely appreciate it, I didn't go with a lot of the things recommended for 2 reasons: While Ryzen has a lot of hype around it right now, I had already partially decided on Intel since I'm comfortable with it & in terms of support, Intel still has a larger base. Also the 3900x has been out of stock sooo... Second, a co-worker who has been at this company for longer than myself & has been building pcs for a while as well, was pushing for several of the components in that list and I wanted to give deference to him, especially since in terms of psu, ram, case etc, it's mainly a preference thing. And lastly don't take it the wrong way but, I did have a parts list already built and was looking for input mainly on that. I get absolutely that it may have looked like I just disregarded all the advice and did my own thing, but it wasn't solely my choice at all, I couldn't just go to my boss and say: 'here's a parts list I got from strangers on a forum'. Those lists might have been better, but when your talking a decent chunk of change to put down, we wanted something future proof in terms of both power & support.
  7. Thanks for the input everyone! We got the desktops ordered and excited to get them built! Here is the config we ended up with: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Consoledotlog/saved/#view=HqVf99
  8. It would just be using internal hhds, adding more as need be. When you say a better ssd I assume you mean in terms of speed?
  9. We use GH4's & Canon 5D's right now, a lot of 4k. Everything is locally stored, that's the 2tb ssd, and then archiving on a hhd
  10. Yeah that build looks pretty sweet, I'll definitely go with that Intel ssd instead. I'm familiar with Nvidia's naming sku, but not really amd, what would that card compare to? Also in theory a higher wattage psu would end up quieter under the same load, or is that not true?
  11. Trying to come up with an editing desktop spec list for around $2000. My company does a lot of video, mostly interviews, company overviews & ads. We need to build a couple of PCs that will last for several years with growing video production. We use Premiere for the most part, but also Resolve. Here is my parts list, from what I've gathered, gpu can really boost performance but only if you really go high end, which is the reason for the 1060 but please input if you know more specifics about this. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Consoledotlog/saved/ I know we could get silent performance with water cooling but don't have the time to properly maintain them in that respect.
  12. I know there are some other topics on this that have come to "google it", and believe me, I have. But although I have a bit of experience in installing OSs, I'm just stumped. So I get an error code randomly while installing windows 10 that says "required installation files couldn't be found". I have windows running on a different SSD so there's no extreme rush but I want to install to a different drive so I can get my RAM speed up from 1333Mhz (it's a long story), but if someone could let me know how to safely bump the speed up without installing windows fresh, that would be great. I have tried installing 3 different ways, one with a genuine windows dvd that I have installed from before with no problem, and also with 2 flash drives Thanks a lot to anyone that has some kind of answer!

  13. Sounds a bit like your PSU isn't big enough, what wattage is it? It looks like 550W? That's probably not nearly enough wattage to cover a 1060 + Intel CPU and whatever else. I tried recently adding a fan and HHD to mine and it did the same thing until I took some stuff out of it to reduce power draw.
  14. I've used the diskpart tool to do the same thing with the drive connected externally to another computer. I'm using a Windows 10 install CD, so I can't do that specifically. Does anyone know how to set the bios option to fix the second error for my specific Mobo? I fixed the first error of the GPT and MBR.
  15. I've been stumped on this for a while, and I've found solutions on other forums but none have worked for me. I had a Windows 10 error after it had been installed for a while and so I thought I would just format the drive and reinstall. Nothing I haven't done before, but this time, whenever I try to install Windows, it will go to the menu to select a drive and then it says that the drive is of GPT format and "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computers BIOS menu". This is a computer that I custom built and like I said, I've formated drives and everything all the time and this is the first time something like this has happened. I can change the format easily enough and I think the other error it gives me is the problem.
