    R9 fury power consumption

    Is a 650W PSU enough for a Sapphire R9 fury Nitro?

    Fair price for used R9 Fury

    So I’ve recently replaced my sapphire R9 Fury Nitro for a Radeon VII card. I’ve planing on selling my old GPU to a friend for £100. I was wondering if that’s a for price on the card for him? I don’t mind taking a little hit in the wallet on it but I just wanna make sure that he’s getting a good deal on it.

    2080 or radeon VII?

    So, I've been looking for a new GPU to replace my R9 fury and I was really considering radeon VII however, the only one I was willing to buy was the sapphire branded card as it's the cheapest version of the card here in the UK at £650. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like that version of the card is gonna be back for at least the next month at this point. So I started looking at the RTX 2080 instead. On Amazon they have EVGAs RTX 2080 Black edition doing for £694 and a basic gigabyte windforce card for £689. I've got a £50 amazon voucher to use so I could get either of these cards for less that any radeon VII currently being sold. I was just wondering if getting the 2080 over radeon VII is worth it at the moment. Thanks in advance.

    New GPU for 1440p display

    So I recently purchased my first 1440p monitor and while it does look awesome unfortunately my R9 Fury is struggling to keep frames above 60 nowadays so I'm looking for a new GPU. I was massively considering Radeon VII because I don't really care about ray tracing or DLSS. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion as to what would be the best GPU to buy at the moment for 1440p gaming. I've got about £700 to spend on a new card.

    Best ways to clean your computer

    Hello All, I was wondering if you peoples had any tips and tricks for cleaning out a PC? I’ve pretty much only used compressed air maybe every 6 months or so to clean my system. I was wonder if there’s any general rule of thumb for how often you should be cleaining your PC and the best ways to do it.

    Man O war broken dongle

    So this morning i stepped on my razer Man O war dongle and broke it, i'm looking for a replacement for it. I've tried contacting razer and all they've told me is to keep checking stock on replacement dongles which isn't really too helpful

    used 970 vs new 1050TI

    My friend is looking to upgrade his PC this week and originally was going to buy a new 1050ti, i suggested that getting a used 970 might be a better option as you can fing used 970s going for the same price as a new 1050ti. Is it worth getting a used 970 or would the 1050ti be the better option?
  10. my friends has got an interview with intel and he needs to make a presentation in which he has to educate a games developer on a specific gaming technology related to intel, something that will enhance their latest game. He is thinking about covering VR as intel is pushing that at the moment, but isn't too sure if that's the best approach. I was wondering if people on here would have any ideas about what he could talk about. thanks
  11. So about a week ago half or my ram just stopped working, i tried and tested it myself and determined that one of the sticks had died as task manager was detecting the slot on my board was occupied while only showing 8GB instead of 16GB. I sent of the broken stick to the shop that i brought it from and they have now contacted my saying that i needed to return both sticks. So at this point i have two options either buy new ram or just send mine off. I'm a university student with exams in about 2 weeks that i need my PC to revise for so i cant really afford to have my PC down for however long this takes but at the same time buying new ram when they could just replace mine seems like a waste of money. They also don't sell just 8GB of my 3000mhz lpx ram so these are my options: 1. wait till next week to send off my ram and hope that i get it back soon 2. buy another 16GB of my ram, send my other stick off then sell or keep the set that I get back 3. if i buy another 8GB of ram it would have to be at a different rated speed than mine. so would its base speed be that same as mine and the timing be the same? could i run my original 16GB with the new ram if the speeds are timings are different? any input is appreciated and if you have any other ideas then i'm happy to here them

    So i went to turn my PC on today and it powered on fine but i noticed my boot light was on my motherboard was on, now my PC isn’t displaying anything, i’ve tried switching around the SATA cables from my hard drive and ssd to see it it had failed. that didn’t work and i’ve now unplugged all of my SATA cable and my BIOS screen isn’t even showing up. I have no idea what the issue is as it was all working fine yesterday.

    Can't output to hdmi

    So for some reason my PC won't output to my TV using a hdmi lead, it works fine using my dvi to vga cable but whenever i play any games ()like destiny 2 for example) it will constant stutter. I've narrored it down so that i know its a problem using a vga connector on the back of my TV and if i can get it to connect using hdmi then it should work fine because it has in the past. Whenever i use the hdmi lead my PC will start to boot and it will start to display the normal startup stuff, but as soon as it's supposed display my user screen it just blacks out for no reason. I'm running an R9 fury on AMDs lastest drivers. thanks
