    Good deal for a low power HTPC? GT 420

    Haha, nice. 1080p is fine for me aswell. I don't care for anything beyond 2k yet, since my monitor doesn't support it. I should stop responding, so the thread wont be so long.

    Good deal for a low power HTPC? GT 420

    Yeah, the one I'm looking at has 2gb of ddr3. My old GPU (before I went for a gtx 1060 6gb) also had the same type and capacity of ram, but it still allowed me to play most of the titles I play.

    Good deal for a low power HTPC? GT 420

    I don't plan to upgrade my family's TV anytime soon. It still works, and to be fair, we don't require anything beyond 2k or 4k on a TV. Besides, if the resolution will be big, i can always just turn down the resolution on the pc, even if the details will be a little "worse"

    Good deal for a low power HTPC? GT 420

    Alrighty I mean most cards I found on bolha for under 10€ were just 128, 256 or 512 mb cards from AMD or Nvidia Even something as an 8800 GTX costs around 20€... and I'm not willing to spend that much. Ill go for it then!

    Good deal for a low power HTPC? GT 420

    My goal is to just have a secondary machine that I can have for playing emulators, not demanding titles, and I need a card that can output to a TV or a monitor via HDMI, since VGA is a bit outdated for today's standards. (plus I like to upgrade the secondary machine with any hardware I find that would suit it. I also use it as a test bench for troubleshooting.) Thx for the recommendation for the i5 2400, but I have the i3 4170 on hand atm, I just need to find a working motherboard for it (lga 1150 motherboards are hard to find around my country).
  6. I'm looking around Bolha (a Slovene version of Ebay or something similar) for cheap graphics cards. My current HTPC has a 256 mb amd gpu in it and I was thinking if finding a cheap alternative is a good idea. I stumbled upon a GT 420 for 3€ and I'm debating if I should take it or not. It has HDMI and DVI. Would it be worth it? Even if I later plan to upgrade the cpu from a single core single thread AMD athlon 3200+ to an I3 4170? The HTPC is mainly used for emulation and movie playback and has windows 7 on it.

    Dead motherboard

    In the worst case scenario I'll find a new motherboard to test with but.. When lightning kills a motherboard, can you visually see what is dead on the motherboard?

    Cpu testing

    He has a z97 (i think) chipset motherboard from MSI his cpu is the i7 4770 Thx for the reply though!

    Cpu testing

    Here's a question.. If you have a dead processor, and a working motherboard to test that processor If you turn the system on to see if the cpu still works, will the dead cpu kill the working motherboard along with it or not? I have a dead H81m-e33 MSI motherboard and want to test if the I3-4170 still works. I have a friend who's motherboard I could use to see if it works, but I dont want to risk destroying his motherboard in the worst case scenario.

    What's more worth it?

    Updated the msg for my setup right now
  11. Out of these few options, which one is better for streaming and video capture? 1. Cpu, mobo, ram upgrade (ryzen 6-8 core cpu) 2. Internal / External capture card (if this one, which one?) 3. Shadowplay / obs / xsplit Or none of the above My setup atm: -i5 3350p quad core -12gb of ram -gtx 1060 -obs / shadowplay based off of requirements (stream or record)
  12. I'm looking around for my cpu, mobo and ram upgrade, when I found myself looking at the official Memory Support List for a GIGABYTE B450 AORUS M AM4. I checked the memory I had chosen, which was a kit of 2x 8 gb sticks of corsair vengance ddr4 ram at 3000MHz. It apperantly isn't compatible? I check the rest of the ram options under the price range of the corsair ram kit. None is compatible. Are memory support lists even that accurate, or is it iok if I "try" and pick something that I think would work.
  13. I'm asking this out of burning curiosity. AMD has 3 chipsets for their Ryzen cpu's: A320, B350 / B450 and X370 / X470. Most people would tell you to get B350 / B450 for a "value" budget option, because it's got similar features to X370 / X470, but at a lower price. Intel on the other hand has a few more chipsets, and all of them confuse me. Besides Z370 (for coffee lake) being the default for enthusiasts who want to overclock and everything else, what is up with the B and H chipsets. Which one would be best from a value standpoint. My current system rocks a B75 motherboard for the 3rd gen i5 3350p processor. But based from a few videos on Youtube I learned that the B series motherboards for coffee lake reduce preformance drastically? Which chipset is then the better one, should you choose not to overclock?
