  1. Can't really help without specs, But theoretically you should upgrade you GPU for games. I assume you're in the USA? you'll get a decent used card for $150 US
  2. Just the one card. and i didn't know about the lead thing, i'll look into that I'd assume its RoHS though.
  3. I'm running a Q8400, 8GB DDR2 and a 560Ti right now. But it has a brand new PSU and this is one of the better versions of my PC. 2 years back though i was using a Athlon X2 4800+ (hence the username), 3GB DDR2 and a 9600GT 512MB card. that card died but it makes a great decoration for my wall.
  4. Sorry, I just figured 73C was pretty high, Although i do have a 5850 which gets to about 60C under full load. Maybe it's just me
  5. Okay thats good to hear man, i didn't even think about that. Enjoy the new card!
  6. I did notice that a bit recently, I got it off a family friends computer and the hard drive went from pinned at 99% at "idle" to an average 2-3%. AVG has become a bitch recently.
  7. I believe the same. AMD has more time to refine their platform and add more features before release, Not to mention, as always AMD will have a very competitive price.
  8. It used to be common knowledge that Dual/Quad channel memory is better than single channel, But there is very minimal difference. I would choose the 2x8 just for easy expansion in the future.
  9. Good point. It does make sense that if (or more likely when) this cryptocurrency flops, All the cards will spill back onto the used market for ridiculously cheap prices. I am looking into building a mini-itx rig soon-ish and it will be interesting to see what prices we get when people get bored of this.
  10. I too am of the mind that it's not really necessary, But i have friends that swear by Avast, and i have heard that Malwarebytes and AVG is okay.
  11. I would consider 73C a very high temp, Its probably a good idea to contact gigabyte and get a replacement fan sent out or a RMA
  12. My stock 2.66GHz Xeon E5430 pulls something like 100-120W, although it is an old architecture.
  13. It would be great to see some "gaming on old, cheap hardware" videos. It would be pretty cool. But i guess scrapyard wars will do for now
  14. I think the thing that frustrates me as a young techy, People ask for my help, Then when things start to look complicated for them (i open a CMD window) or the registry or something they always say something like "you're sure you know what you're doing right?" I mean, YOU are asking for MY help right? stop asking questions and let me do my thing.
  15. Unless the Z170 board has alot of features you particularly like or need, there is no point. The money is better spent elsewhere
