    GTX 1060 3gb vs. 6gb

    Guys I find 1060 3gb's listed on letgo a lot for like $140 and I ask if they can do $90 or $95 and like almost half of them say yes. also I've found like 10 1060 6gb's listed on craigslist and letgo for under $160 in the past 2 weeks and most of them weren't ever used for mining. There was this guy who had a 2 1060 6gb's which were used for mining for only 5 months listed for $100 a pop and I emailed him but he said someone was coming to pick them up that day. It's really not too hard to find cheap used gpu's right now. I also saw a r9 280 3gb listed for $40.

    GTX 1060 3gb vs. 6gb

    Hi I'm buying a used GPU in the next couple weeks and I was wondering if I should get the GTX 1060 3gb or 6gb. The performance boost seems pretty good but the price is my issue. I can get a GTX 1060 3gb for $90 or a GTX 1060 6gb for $135. Is it worth $45? I only have about $95 right now so do you think it would be a better idea to buy now for a 3gb card or wait a month or so for a 6gb variant? Thanks in advance!

    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT Error code please help!

    I think it's because its not on the motherboard support list for ram. I think I have to underclock the speeds. I have already tested it with each stick by itself so Im pretty its a compatibility issue thank you anyways!
  4. I have an ASRock AB350M Pro 4 Motherboard (https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M%20Pro4/index.us.asp ) and a Ryzen 3 1200 along with 2 4gb sticks of G.skill Aegis DDR4 (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=n82e16820232256) and whenever I am just using my computer it will just freeze and then blue screen and say MEMORY_MANAGEMENT as the error code. It just happens randomly while I'm using my pc. Is this a RAM incompatibility issue or are there drivers for the motherboard or something? Someone please help!

    PC doesn't automatically switch between headphones and speakers

    Dude you are sooo helpful thank you sooo much!!
  6. So I recently reset my PC and now it doesn't automatically switch between my headphones and my speakers. Here's what's confusing me: before I reset my PC I just set my headphones to the default audio device and it would switch automatically. Now when I do that it doesn't. I went into the playback devices settings in Windows and when I unplug my headphones it doesn't detect it. I looked this up and people said that installing the realtek audio drivers helps a lot of issues with drivers. But it just made my issue worse. Now when I go into playback devices the speakers and headphones are grouped into one device called "speakers" and when I play audio on my PC it goes out through my headphones and speakers at the same time. My speakers are plugged in via the back panel and the headphones plugged in via the front panel. Someone please help.

    what is "safe mode"
  8. I have an ASRock AB350M Pro4 motherboard and a Ryzen 3 1200 a GTX 750 with 2x4gb G.skill Aegis ddr4 and they are 2400mhz stock. I have come to the conclusion that the RAM is causing something to happen where it starts artifacting in games and blue screens every 2 hours of gaming. I know it's not the GPU because I've swapped it out for a different one and the artifacting still occurs. Can someone see if I have the RAM in the wrong spots or at the wrong speeds or something? Motherboard specs: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M Pro4/index.asp#Specification RAM specs: https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16820232256 I have the RAM in slots a2 and b2 and they are set to 2400mhz (not auto) and when I change it to auto the RAM underclocks to 2133 Someone tell me if it's user error or the RAM is having compatibility issues.

    rx 550 performing worse than gtx 750

    I did need more VRAM the 1gb was a FPS killer. Also I was planning on putting another GPU in a different PC so that's why I got this. It was also on a heck of a sale.

    rx 550 performing worse than gtx 750

    I just bought an rx 550 2gb on sale for $55 to replace my gtx 750 1gb that I've had for a while. When I got it and downloaded drivers etc. I noticed I get about 15 fewer average fps on fortnite. This was kind of concerning to me and i want to know maybe some contributors or things i can do to get more performance? thanks

    Whats up with all the low end graphics cards on here

    It's not really a "serious gamers forum" It's a community of people who like technology who help each other out with their problems and questions. Also why would you expect everybody to have an expensive rig? how many people do you know in real life that have a 1080 or 1080ti? Also the power supply thing is kind of true because when I asked for a good budget PSU everyone was telling me to get like $50 psus when you can find EVGA 450 watt ones on newegg for like $20 on sale pretty often.

    Artifacting when my PC gets bumped.

    Hi I have a custom PC I built myself and it has been having artifacting issues as of late. The Problem usually happens when I either bump my PC or sometimes it just happens when I'm playing games like Fortnite or PUBG. There are 2 main things that I think could be causing this issue either the GPU or the RAM. Here's a list of all my PC parts. CPU: Ryzen 3 1200 Motherboard: ASRock AB350M Pro 4 RAM: 8gb G.Skill Aegis ddr4 2400mhz (link: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232256) I ordered 1 stick and later bought another so I could have 8gb GPU: Asus GTX 750 1gb (link: https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/GTX750PHOC1GD5/) I got this used from a friend for free PSU: Corsair CX450 80 plus bronze HDD: 250gb Seagate HDD (from an old optiplex) 1tb WD Blue 7200rpm Case: DIYPC BG-01 I tried testing if it was the RAM by taking one out but its hard to test because you can't really purposely cause the artifacting it just happens sometimes. (Does not happen if I purposely jerk my desk ever) Another thing is if I am watching YouTube or twitch in fullscreen and it starts to do artifacting I can just hit escape and it reloads and fixes itself because its only on the video part. Most of the time if it artifacts while I'm doing something other than fullscreen video streaming it will blue screen and have artifacting over the blue screen and give me the error SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXEPTION. If anyone can help me figure out if it is the GPU or the RAM it would mean a lot. One last thing I thought I should mention is that in the BIOS the XMP setting for the RAM is set to auto and it runs the RAM at 2133mhz even though its rated for 2400. If I set it to XMP 2.0 it will go to 2400mhz but crash on boot 90% of the time and on the offhand chance it will fully boot it will work fine.
  14. Thanks I will also switch out the HDMI Cable for a different one I have lying around.
  15. I have this custom PC that I built and whenever I accidentally bump it (not even very hard at all) or move it while it is on the screen glitches and has like red pixels all over it for a second and sometimes freezes. Does this happen to anyone else and does anyone know how to fix it? I think it may entirely be that the GPU is not entirely seated correctly or that it's just old and is fragile. PC Specs: Ryzen 3 1200 (stock speeds) 8gb 2400mhz ddr4 (G.Skill Aegis) ASRock AB350M Pro 4 motherboard 250gb HDD (7200RPM Boot Drive) 1tb WD Blue 7200 RPM GTX 750 1GB (Maybe the main problem) Corsair CX450 80+ Bronze PSU DIYPC BG-01 Case
