    waterjug got a reaction from Vitamanic in Can flipping breakers damage pc or components   
    The PSU and surge protector should protect them. You're fine.

    The PSU should be able to let your components down easy through its capacitors, even if only for a fraction of a second. 
     
    I guess the only glaring issue that could arise is a HDD head crash. That said, just turn off the system before you flip the breaker.

    Ah, ok, thank you, I didn't know if normal screws would work or not because on the case manual that's what it says to do to install fans with. Thanks for the help.

    Your PSU will be totally fine
    Click the link in my sig called "you don't need a big psu" it shows a gamersnexus video of how most high-end systems usually only draw ~300W
    I'd reccomend stepping up to an RX 470 though, since it's a huge leap in performance for not that much extra money.

    waterjug got a reaction from Crismon in WARNING- Be careful when buying Ryzen gen 2 or 3 motherboards   
    This only applies if you are buying a Gen 2 or 3 Ryzen cpu.
    A lot of AM4+ motherboards are advertised at compatible with gen 2 or gen 3, but although they are advertised as such, many of them are only compatible with a BIOS update. But in order to update the BIOS, you need a gen 1 compatible chip in order to make the board compatible with gen 2. My friend recently was building his first PC, and after a lot of troubleshooting, he had to take it all apart after he figured out the motherboard shipped with an old bios. In fact, the way he found out was going back to look at the reviews on the product page to find this- 

     
    I agree with this guy, this is ridiculous that companies cheap out with false advertising like this. 
    That was a review on the board he initially purchased which was this one. Although the board says it's compatible with gen 2, it's really not and caused a huge headache.
     
    He ended up returning the board and buying this board, which we only bought because the seller actually confirmed it.

    Shoutout to ASRock.
     
    In conclusion, read the reviews and examine the board closely if you are buying a motherboard for a Ryzen generation 2 or generation 3 processor. Or just buy a generation 1 chip and avoid this mess, or buy a stupid expensive board. This is mainly a warning for people on a budget, because I assume(or hope) this isn't an issue for more expensive boards.
     
    Hopefully I saved you from the hassle and disappointment my friend went through.

    Hit up r/wallstreetbets on reddit, more people there might know more about investing than people on this forum. But I would also consider investing in other companies, not just the few PC builder companies, as there are probably better companies to invest in than those.

    oh shit i'm really fucking stupid I thought when he said "invest" he mean like invest in the company for some reason, not invest in a computer.

    Your GPU isn't dead, it's mostly dead.
     
    Your VRAM is likely going out. If the GPU was entirely dead, then you wouldn't be able to boot with it installed in the first place.
