    1440p 144z 24inch or 27inch???

    24" is perfect for 1080p. For 1440p I'd recommend 27".

    Picking the right Blower Card

    They suck and blow.
  3. What are your full specs?

    RIP Windows 7-Time for an upgrade.

    I remember testing Windows 10 8 months before release. I'm still running Windows 7 on my main machine.

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    Asus P6X58D-E is a pretty good motherboard, I have one on my main PC. What settings you tried? Did you watch Tech Yes City's X58 Xeon OC guide?

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    My GTX 960, which is as fast as a GTX 1050 Ti, has only 2GB VRAM. It's limiting it on many games.

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    I just upgraded my RAM from 16GB to 24GB. Previously I had 2x 4GB Kingston 1333MHz ECC and 4x 2GB Corsair Dominator 1600MHz non-ECC sticks. I upgraded the 4x2GB Dominators to these: 4x4GB Corsair XMS3 1600MHz
  8. Have you tried to clear the CMOS?

    X58 Mobo

    I'd recommend asking here:

    New FHD monitor (24") for gaming

    For 2080 Ti I'd recommend 27" 1440p 144Hz

    Intel i7-980X Still Worth It?

    Xeons should be a lot cheaper than the i7-980X or i7-990X. I have a Xeon X5670 on my main PC I'd recommend checking this thread:

    How about quad-sli GTX 480's? :D https://www.legitreviews.com/evga-sr-2-motherboard-gets-a-custom-pc-case_1324

    Should I use both power connectors on my card?

    6+2 is the same as 8-pin connector and that is enough for the RX 580. It doesn't damage the card in any way, but you can connect the other power cable if you want to.
  16. At least my Xeon doesn't bottleneck my GTX 960 at all. Even my i7-950 (Xeon W3550) didn't bottleneck it.
  17. Most likely the CPU isn't going to be a bottleneck with a GTX 1050 Ti

    What is the oldest PC you consider still useful?

    For most things I'd be okay with something like a Core2 Duo E8400, 8GB RAM, dedicated graphics, Windows 7 or Linux. But I could live with a Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz, at least 2GB RAM, dedicated graphics and some light Linux distro. With a PC like that I could browse the internet and watch 720p YouTube videos on VLC.

    What's the Origin of the Nickname You Go By?

    It's just my first name and numbers 1, 2 and 3.

    Matching Xeon processors

    Yes, you can. But I personally would get two E5450 3.0GHz CPU's
  21. X58 motherboards are pretty expensive and if you have a X58 mobo, you should get a cheap 6c/12t Xeon for it. The i7-930 is still a decent CPU but it's a lot worse than the cheap Xeons.

    Will a 50-60hz monitor work in Europe (50hz)?

    It should work

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    ICL MikroMikko Ergo X from 1996. Made in Finland. Specs: Intel Pentium 133MHz, 64MB RAM, ATI Mach 64, Sound Blaster 16, 1GB HDD
  24. Dell Vostro 420 is Core2 Duo/Quad based. Does your PC have a i7-9xx or i7-8xx series CPU? Both should be just fine for a GTX 1050 Ti.

    2600 vs 9600k

    9600K has higher single-core performance and the 2600 has better multi-core performance. How much is the price difference?
