  1. This is perfectly normal working temperature. No need to worry about it, just be happy with your new machine...

    The upgrade path

    Ehm idk about the number 2 problem, but I can almost guarantee you, that it's the motherboard failing and not the CPU - the VRMs to be exact.

    Please i'm just looking for a straight answer

    Ain't worth my time, since it will take you roughly 1-2 years to gather enough money and by that time there are gonna be much better deals....

    That HP board is just as fine for gaming, as the z77. You will be throwing money out.

    Okay most straight answer again: In theory, even something like Pentium 4, can have GTX 1080 or a titan or whatever plugged in and WORK, but will bottleneck it. You want to play and record games? In that case you need either a second PC, or really powerful CPU. That i7 2600 could do it, but you got to lower your settings. My personal advice is this. First get good quality PSU and nice case. Those two items are always long term investment so cheaping out here is stupid. After that, get strong GPU. Yes, the card most likely won't be able to run at its full potential, but it will run. Then get new CPU, motherboard and ram. This is how I update my rig. Now one more thing I want you to consider. Why are you spending money or a high end motherboard, only to replace it in near future? Those CPUs you got are both non-overclockable, so there is no point. The graphics cards will run the same in the prebuild mobo that you have, as in this z77 extreme.....

    Need advice on a travel build

    I tough about offering to the OP to look at the GPD line also but then saw what his travel PC would be so yeah... https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1028034-revival-of-galion-evo-my-travel-workstation/?tab=comments#comment-12250502 The VNC method drops out since he will game, so @Galion you need to find a TV or whatever, small enough to suit your needs.

    Need advice on a travel build

    With the right amount of DIYing you can do everything... There are enough of small 7/10 inch or bigger HDMI TVs with or without touch. My way of doing this would be to set up the machine to connect WIFI automatically (say ur phone hotspot) and have running VNC server. This allows you to use any phone/tablet/laptop or whatever that is on the same network as a monitor (no internet access is needed), keyboard and mice. Have done it already with a raspberry pi and it works flawlessly.

    Low-End GPU Comparison

    the 960

    Please i'm just looking for a straight answer

    Here's the most straight answer I can give you: New case and PSU will reduce noise and maybe you will get better temperatures. You WONT get any noticeable boost in performance. As for will it work part, there is a thing called standard - your parts are ATX standard - they will work in any case that supports ATX standard.
  10. I would love a reaction from Yvonne to this tbh...

    Is the GTX 950 bad?

    Depends on the price really. Best you can do is find benchmarks that compare the 3 and decide what you need and how much u willing to spend for it..
  12. My 760k will play anything you throw at it, but it's not much better than the now very obsolete Q6600. In my case, my GTX 960 (even the 2 GB variant that I have) can't stretch it's legs fully in CPU heavy titles. For example, Assassin's Creed Syndicate is not playable even at lowest settings with the 760, while on my new Ryzen 1500x system with the same 960 in it, I play on middle settings just fine...
  13. Now, as an long long time owner of an 760k Athlon, let me explain it to you what life with this is. First, there is almost to difference between Athlon 7** and 8** other than clock speed and sata 3 I think? Second very deppends what motherboard you put in it. Sometime around 2014 or so I got my 760k with the cheapest MB on the market. It made my life hell. That chip literally melted the poor Gigabyte MB (it wasn't on the CPU supported list but still ran like a champ and overclocked too XD). Last year I bought one of the best ones MBs for FM2 socket. Now the chip is rocksteady at 4.7 GHz on air cooler and you know what? It will still get it ass whooped in cinebench from any modern dual core with threads. The real weakness is from the fact that put it simply, Intel has 2 plates from which each core "feeds", while AMD made 2 cores on 1 plate to battle for resources. This makes say core 2 to wait for core 1 to finish and use the shared cache, If you want to look at insane clock speeds, like me, it's very nice platform. With decent cooling I bet my chip can crack 5.5 or even 6 GHz easy. Just the performance isn't there... Furthermore the 8** series inherited the 7** weakness - no upgrade path, if you get the best from the start. Just, don't deal with this. Get cheap Ryzen, it will perform way better.
  14. FX and the ahlon 7** share the same weakness. They have fast cores, but those cores share resources. In other words, in the FX case, you have 4 very fast cores (because they get all the cache) and 4 retarded ones... It was a way for AMD to make cheaper CPUS that didn't work out...

    Old system weirdness

    Tricky one this be will. My suggestions would be first get a stable (no need to be good, just stable) PSU. Then get some pencil eraser (rubber) and make sure all the ram pins are nice and shinny. Seriously, you won't believe how many times this has revived not showing ram sticks for me. Third, if this MB has sat a long time, give it as I like to call it, the Tech Yes City clean therapy. Even without brake cleaner, I've washed mbs with water and brush, just make sure you give it plenty of time to dry off (placing a heater or under direct sun light helps a lot) before powering it. IDK what else other than visually inspection that all caps are fine. Sometimes. like my first FM2 board, they get unstable and it's beyond fixing without soldering...
