    Please Help!!!

    You could try to test it with the 265 psu but do not put any kind of load on it. I’d even recommend loading the OS on a flash drive just so you don’t have to power and kind of hard drive or SSD. Although they don’t take much I would just do that to be safe.

    Pro tip: it’s always a good idea to give yourself a little elbow room when it comes to wattage. Just in case everything decides to spin up at once. Also NEVER cheap out on a power supply. Try to stick with reliable name brands because when a power supply goes out then there is a very high possibility that multiple components or your whole system could go out with it.

    I’d say that would be too much for that pay. At idle or basic web browsing you would be fine but as soon as you start doing anything that brings the CPU or GPU above 50% usage you’ll get a nice blue screen if not worse. I’d go up to around 400watts if I were you. Personally I wouldn’t go below that but you could get away with 350 I believe depending on your setup.

    You will need to do some hunting on eBay or Craigslist for that price point. Newegg has quite a few but they are all over $100. Heres one on ebay I just found. https://m.ebay.com/itm/MSI-MS-7788-H61M-P31-G3-Intel-LGA1155-mATX-Motherboard-I-O-Shield/183365961099?hash=item2ab176858b%3Ag%3A-SQAAOSwliJbac6S%3Asc%3AUSPSPriority!77037!US!-1&_nkw=1155+motherboard&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m4084.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.X11.TRS0

    Those 1155 boards are kinda hard to come by now but I’ll give it a look. What is your budget?

    New Build Planning - Thoughts?

    Everything on here looks great! The only thing I would recommend is to look at the Corsair 750D(and the high airflow version) case. I've used it in 3 builds and it has never disappointed me I believe its in the the same price range.

    i3 or i5 ?

    What will you be using this computer for? That will determne it.
  10. When I looked at autozone online the cheapest one was $200. Is that typical for an alternator?

    Is a hyperthreading CPU necessary?

    If you can afford the i7 then why not get it? Always get the best stuff you can afford.
  12. I need some help. I own a 2004 Mustang GT convertible with a failing alternator. Given the fact that I’m 17 I am obviously young, relatively dumb, and just about broke. This being said I have no idea what to look for in an alternator. I’m seeing prices range from $70-400USD and as most people I want to spend as little as possible and still get a reliable product. Can anyone help me find a new(at least new to me) alternator?? 2004 Ford Mustang GT 4.6L convertible

    Best Gpu for 1080p gaming for my cpu

    Get the best you can afford within reason. If you have the funds get it. You would be just fine with a 1060/1070 imo.

    Is my graphics card failing?

    Make sure you have all of your drivers updated. I had a similar issue on my old rig and that fix it for me. If not then try a different monitor and if you still have the issue then you know it's your card. take a air cannon to the ports and HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort cable to in sure it isn't dust.

    Best radiator fans?

    I have a Noctua fans on my radiators. They are typically a little pricey so if you have the extra cash and don't mind the ugliness of them the I would recommend them. I use the NF-F12 iPPC-3000 fans
