  1. So I currently have a pretty old gaming pc that is starting to show its age, I have a i7-4790k and a r9 295x2. Games like the new COD and Apex I can only average around 80-90 fps on the lowest settings with MSAA and antialaising being the only things I turn up. My question is if I am not sure if now is a good time to get build a new PC or to just wait for the next gen of Nvidia GPU's and AMD CPU's, because if I was to build a PC rn I would most likley go for a Ryzen 5 3600 with a RTX 2060 super or somethin around those lines. I was originally thinking to just get the RTX 2060 super but im still on the old DDR3 memoery due to my CPU, so I think it would be better do upgrade everything at this point. I am not planning on spending no more than like 1.2k on the whole PC though so do u guys have any ideas on what I should do.
  2. Im not sure I didnt check and I dont have the box with me, but if it was the bios would that explain the USB ports not working and no signal from the graphics card

  4. I am building a new PC for a friend and before I put everything into the case I hooked up the GPU, RAM and CPU into the motherboard to make sure everything was working. Everything turned on and the fans works though when I would plug in the HDMI cable into the GPU I would get no signal and not only that but none of the USB ports on the motherboard worked. Now his CPU is a Ryzen 3600 and I paired it with a B450 motherboard, could it be that the motherboard needs a bios update inorder for the GPU signal to work as well as the USB ports on the motherboard.
  5. I currently have a r9 295x2 GPU though I am planning to upgrade to either a RTX 2060super or maybe a RTX 2070 Super, though I do still have a somewhat old CPU being the i7 4790k and 16Gbs of DDR3 RAM clocked at 2133mhz. I am curious if my aging CPU and Ram would be a significant bottleneck for gaming?
  6. Hello I recently build a PC for my friend though although we did our reaserch the PC isnt getting good FPS when we play games. For instance Fortnite at medium seetings no shadows at 1600x900 only gets about 90-130 fps though it has constant fps drops down into the low 40's high 30s and especially in places like tilted towers it will drop to a consitant 40-50 fps for a while and then sometimes go back to a more stable 80-100. Also csgo with everything on high except shadows low, mulitcore rendering enabled, MSAA 8x and FXAA disabled the game will hover around 120-160 with drops into the 90s eventhough benchmarks show that we should be getting something around the low 200fps range solid. Also I noticed that the cpu would be around 100 percent all the time while playing fortnite, not sure for csgo. I have a feeling that maybe one of the pins on the processor may have bended though I feel like the pc would be crashing or would show some artifacts if that were the case? Please guys I need your help to fix this PC since my friend has been saving for quite a while to get it. :( The PC: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/FJyrCb
  7. I only have that drive, nothing else though
  8. Can I restore my whole drive with it, for free?
  9. I will do that its just I cant shut down the pc rn since im try to restore my stuff from another drive that I accendently deleted a volume of
  10. The new drive dosent even show up in windows no more, niehter in disk management.
  11. I installed it on my SSD, and its still there any everything is fine though any file transfers that I would do on that new drive would do it super slow.
  12. Its brand new and its this one; https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013JPKUU2/?tag=pcpapi-20 I also noticed that my pc was super slow when it was working since it was taking for ever just to install Fl Studio compared to my older 250gb hard drive.
  13. I cant do that since it doent even pop up on disk manager
  14. My new hardrive dosent work everytime I do something in it like transfer files it does it really slow then freezes and never finish's it, I then restart the pc and then the harddrive is no longer detected by windows! Ive already tried changing out the sata cables but that still didnt work it only brought it back temporarily though the same thing happened again.
