    Ashley xD reacted to HKZeroFive in Hello guys i need help with build   
    1. Wait for Coffee Lake and see what Intel's i3 lineup will offer.
    2. Bump up that hard drive to 1TB. The price should be around the same.
    3. Get a better power supply. The Corsair CX450M would be a rather good choice.

    WHY? iphone 6s is an old device. the galaxy s8 is so much better.

    Ashley xD got a reaction from huskyhunter47 in Help me choose Cpu cooler   
    i used a standard hyper 212 evo with a core 2 quad q9550 machine for a while. it was completely fine. even overclocked to 3.7 ghz stayed below 70 degrees Celsius.
     
    that cpu, and the fx 4300 both have a 95 watt tdp. so they should get just as hot, in theory. without the overclock, i never got above 60-65 degrees Celsius

    because you just built the machine, it'possible that Windows is updating and doing a load of crap in the background.

    the mx150 is about par with the 950m i think. i have one of those, and i can play Overwatch on medium settings 1080p no problem. 
     
    we have come a long way in terms of budget gpu's.

    Settings in those games? Anti-Aliasing can kill your FPS, also grass quality impacts FPS a lot too. Try turning AA off and Grass Quality (GTA 5) to medium and see if it improves.

    i like doing that, but diffrently. i have a lot of computers from the late 90's. windows 95 and 98 machines. and i try and use really lightweight linux distro's on them and see what you can still do with a system of that age. and yes, optimizing games is a lot of fun.

    Ashley xD got a reaction from kb5zue in using spare SSD to speed up HDD...?   
    so my old computer's power supply blew out, frying the board, and i'm currently in the process of building a new system. 
    and i thought, can i use the 60GB SSD that was in that rig, to speed up the WD blue HDD i bought for my new pc.
     
    so like automatically copying my most often played games over to it or something. can i do this with software?

    Ashley xD reacted to AshleyAshes in ssd in ms-dos pc...?   
    CompactFlash is electrically identical to the IDE interface, it just needs a passive pinout adaptor.  So with a simple CF to IDE adaptor, you can use a CF card natively on any system that supports IDE.  So to make it clear; CF cards are solid state IDE drives, they just have a different pinout.  Legacy systems have no problems interfacing with CF cards.
     
    It's even a common modification on older arcade machine restorations, machines that used HDDs to store game data on, to make a new image on a CF card and install that, making a 20+ year old arcade machine solid state rather than relying on a mechanical HDD.

    Intel build. Why Intel? Stability. AMD Ryzen has mature since launch. Imo, they need to mature some more, before it's safe to be suggest for a build. 8GB of ram is good enough Hybrid drive for that SSD like performance and the capacity of a HDD. GTX 1050Ti for the games they play now as well as games they want to get in the near future Windows 10 retail license, so it can be transfer, when you build a new PC. Some matching parts, like mobo, case, and, gpu, to make it look nice and awesome. IMO even a Kaby Lake Pentium dual core is good enough for your kids.

    OP can opt to add a ssd if he wants to. Just note that he will have to copy files everytime to the hdd, cause the ssd getting full and files were not saved to the hdd in the first place.
     
    Your mixing consumer stability over enthusiast stability.
     
    No you would get Intel if he wants to set it and forget it.
     
    They want every part of the market. Having server parts does not mean the consumer side of things are mature and stable enough.
     
    Intel Core, has been out for almost 10+ years, compared to Ryzen's where it's barely even a year old. 
    If it's mission critical that company, will go with Intel, where it's been mature long enough that, they won't have to worry about the unexpected.
    The same when op builds the system for his kids.
     
    Target user is a 13 year old kid. Not someone heading off in to college. CoffeeLake was never the intended upgrade path for this build. They can upgrade to whatever Intel or AMD has 5+ years from now. As for your build. It's missing a OS and why bother getting a SATA based M.2? It's offer no performance improvements and your making OP's life difficult if he needs to attached that SSD to another system, when there is no M.2 slot.
     
    No source. It's called waiting for the platform to mature a bit longer and stabilized, before it can be recommended to a end user. Now if you're the person that likes to deal with nonsense problems and likes to tinker with your system, then go with AMD Ryzen. SSHD offers SSD like performance not equal performance. It gives the user a snappier response when using their computer, compared to a traditional HDD. OP can opt for the MicroATX version of that board. If you like to run windows unactivated or buy it from the bum down the digital alley, do it to your own build. Not to a build that's for someone else.

    Ashley xD reacted to Mira Yurizaki in Are SSHDs good or bad? (Performance wise)   
    They're about the same as a regular hard drive, except if you load up data that you frequently access. However the drive determines "frequently accessed" is up for grabs.
     
    Note that you cannot test SSHD performance by, for example, opening an app, closing it, then re-opening it because Windows will leave the apps' data in RAM in case you do this sort of thing. Several runs of say Crystal Disk Mark may give you a better idea of how it works.
