  1. Should i buy this?

    Asus boards are pretty high quality. I don't see a problem with going B350 unless you're going to be doing some crazy overclocking that's gonna damage the motherboard VRMs. Looks like a good build to me
  2. Are graphic card pre-orders a thing?

    Occasionally you can grab a GPU at MSRP on Amazon a couple weeks in advance of being in stock, but you'd have to be really quick. You can also get them at MSRP from Nvidia directly IIRC and if they're in stock there.
  3. Im trying to overclock my EVGA 1050ti scc

    I honestly wouldn't worry about overclocking further, you've got some pretty impressive numbers there, especially drawing all your power from the PCIe slot. Your Athlon is likely holding your GPU back, but probably not by a lot at 1080p gaming.
  4. Intel discrete gpu prototype

    In Soviet Russia....
  5. Streaming editing machine

    I would go Threadripper 1920 or 1950.
  6. 7850 Max Fan Speed During Boot Up

    I get the same thing on my GTS 250 Twin Frozr, but those fans don't spin at max speed through the whole boot process....

  8. Building a low budget PC

    The iGPU in the Ryzen APUs is better than a 1030. -Moved to New Builds and Planning-
  9. My kid loves Linus

    Start 'em young, mate, start 'em young.... Teach her how to build a PC when she gets old enough
  10. New GPU

    If you can find a used GTX 980 or 980Ti, those are usually pretty reasonably priced(in my area at least).
  11. Read Me: Challenge

    Pinball's where it's at man
  12. Combining old and new Titan Cards possible?

    You could use your other Titan as a PhysX processor In all seriousness, there isn't much use for having two different GPUs in a single system. I don't think a Titan Xp will be able to work together with the Kepler Titan given the age gap between them. You could keep the older one around as a spare part and use it in a future gaming rig for someone. Or throw it on display for all to see, I haven't seen an original Titan for a long time. And also for bragging rights that you have one, they're not very common these days....
  13. Clean install of windows 10 on old laptop

    What you could do is buy a Windows 10 key(from Microsoft) and then use their media creation tool on their website to create a bootable Windows 10 install disk and then install Windows 10, wiping the hard drive in the process. You can't factory reset Windows 7 from what I've found in my efforts to do so.
  14. Tax Return AMD Build

    You could save a bit by getting a Ryzen 5 1600 as that will likely serve all his purposes.
  15. I'm trying to fix my old GPU, but I don't know how.

    Sounds like it could be a driver crash, I've had something similar when overclocking my GPU. Try with older drivers and download them from AMD directly. Also, try running DDU again to make sure you cleared out the other drivers(and anything that partially installed). Another thing to mention is that getting AMD and Nvidia cards to play nicely and be used in the same system like this is a real pain and getting the drivers set up to work properly is nearly impossible. Only using card one at a time will make the process go quite a bit smoother. One other thing you could try is running only the AMD card while using the CPU's iGPU(plug monitor cables into motherboard) to download and install drivers. If that works, switch back to the AMD card and see if it'll work. Do all of this without the GT 1030 installed in the system.
