  1. Thank you all for answering, I guess I'll go by JoostinOnline methode Now if I plug everything in and the system doesn't start windows up correctly (after all settings in bios are correct) I should reinstall and get everything from backup right? Now can I just keep hhd as it and shouldn't delete anything on that is if that is the case? Because I didn't install windows and drivers on that? Also, in one of the LTT videos they linked to a program where you can just pick what drivers to uninstall, does anyone have like a link or anything to that?
  2. So I'm updating my Motherboard, CPU, RAM and CPU cooler. Now I am kind of getting confused as to what I should do on the software side of things. I don't want to lose any of my files. I know I have to reinstall windows in some way but I have no idea in what way, how and when. I only have a windows 8 disc but I should get windows 10 again by that right? My original plan was to uninstall all drivers that are part of the old hardware, then swap everything and install new drivers, but that doesn't seem like a good plan after reading stuf online. So how should I do this? I will of course back everything up, and uninstall current drivers but what should I do after that? If anyone could link me to a good guide or explain what to do I would be very thankfull! List of parts: AMD fx-8230 -> Ryzen 5 1600x msi 760ga-p43 (fx) -> Asus Prime B350-Plus corsair ddr3 XMs3 -> Corsair Vengeance LPX - ddr4 Nvidea GTX 970 Cooler master 500 W psu Samsung evo SSD 250 GB (has all the drivers) WD 500 GB hdd (has no drivers and only files and games) an optical drive
  3. So, I have been kind of looking at a new cpu, motherboard and ram but I don't get one thing Why is the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X so much better then the AMD FX-8320? The FX has more cores, more less threads, more L2 cache but less L3 cache. So should I update to the Ryzen 5 or should I go even higher in the CPU chain? Keep in mind that I want to spend about 500-600 euro's on this so I can't just build a Nasa university extreme ultra pc (or would this mean that I'm better of doing this project in the future?
  4. Oke, so you guys are saying to upgrade to an AMD RYZEN 5, what motherboard should I get with that? Which DDR4 ram sticks? The problem I have is that I really don't know what to look for
  5. Hello, I'm new here so I don't know if I type this in the correct place, sorry if I don't. 5 years ago, I went to a website and put together my own gaming pc for about 800 euro's, more or less. Now little over a year ago I went in and updated the GPU, graphics weren't great and they are now. Now today, I don't know where my pc stands in the pc ranking. I use it to game, playing games like overwatch, LoL, GTA, Planet Coaster and more stuff like that. Especially with planet coaster, the game is starting to lag, and that is probably due to a lot of stuf sitting in my park. Also, my pc makes a lot of noise and I want to change that, I want to upgrade my cpu cooler. So, my problem: I don't know what the bottleneck of my pc is, should I improve anything in the region of CPU, motherboard or ram? Since the rest is pretty decent (I think) Here is the list of specs: CPU: AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor 3.50 GHz Memory: Corsair cm3x4ga1333c9n2 Motherboard: MSI 760GA-P43 (FX) GPU: MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G PSU: Cooler Master 500W 250GB Samsung EVO SSD 500GB WD Case: K350 (RC-K350-KWN2-EN) CPU cooler: Stock AMD cooler LG blue ray disk reader The stock AMD cooler makes a shit ton of sound, especially under load, so I wanted to replace that with a BE QUIET! Shadow rock 2 or Dark rock pro 3. Problem with that is that it probably doesn't fit in my case since the maximum height for the CPU cooler is 148.5 mm. So should I go for a Dark Rock TF or upgrade my case or maybe go for another cooler? I want to upgrade for the long therm. And what should I do with the motherboard/cpu/memory situation? Upgrade with more of the same memory sticks? (that is how it works right?) Get a new motherboard with DDR4 memory? (But then which one because which is compatible and future proof?) Then, shoud I also upgrade the CPU? The market place is huge and I don't know what to look for, so thank you for any help you guys can offer me. BTW, English is not my first language.
