  1. I'm not happy buying used because I have before and that's left me with a $200 piece of useless metal. It broke after the sellers warranty was finished. However, if you or someone else can find a card that I can 100% rely on working, or with a decent warranty I will consider it.
  2. Hi I'm looking for the best possible graphics card for under 230USD. I wouldn't like to buy used or refurbished. So far this is the best GPU that I can find, is it the best option though? I've also seen this, would it be a better option? Or can you guys find something better? Thanks!
  3. Do you mean that you have actually taken the GPU out? If not, try using the integrated graphics with the GPU taken out. I had a similar problem, and it ended up being that my motherboard BIOS was out of date and I had to update it to support my GPU
  4. My PSU also makes those sounds when I do that, not sure if that is normal. It sounds like a dead GPU, similar thing happened to me a month ago.
  5. Hmm I'm not sure then. What are you using to see usage? Task Manager?
  6. What are you using it for? If gaming, what games?
  7. Honestly I've got no idea what the weather is like. As I write this its night time, the sky's are clear, but by the time I wake up in the morning it could be raining. Even the weather channels aren't 100% accurate right now. By about November it should be almost consistently sunny. Take everything I've written with a grain of salt though, who knows what the weather is doing.
  8. I don't think there would be much point in upgrading. The i7 950 still seems like a capable CPU, I'm sure that it will still work just as well as a low end Ryzen CPU, although I can't say how much longer it would last. I would suggest just use it until it dies, then worry about getting Ryzen. Maybe get 8GB of RAM.
  9. What would you use this "old" computer for?
  10. I don't need macOS, I just think it's a really smooth OS. I'm quite happy to stick to Windows if it means better performance.
  11. I do need Google Docs, most of my work is on there, and I can't move it, because its school files, not mine
  12. Not looking to go Hackintosh, just want a Windows computer that can trade blows with that Macbook.
  13. Hi all. So recently my laptop has started breaking, and while its being diagnosed I thought I should look at alternatives. My friend suggested the Macbook Pro (note that he only has Apple computers). Now I think the 13inch base model would be the most expensive I can go, keeping in mind I need adapters. I have a love/hate relationship with Apple. I've never owned an Apple product, I find them too expensive. However I really like Mac OS, and the features. I also like the way it's made, and the build quality (I'm aware the keyboards can break). Not to mention the screen, which is incredible. Can anyone find a laptop that is better than the 13 inch base model Macbook Pro? I use my laptop mainly for web browsing and working on Google Docs. I occasionally play a few games on it, probably Minecraft. And if I get a Windows PC I'll probably play offline CSGO (I'm terrible at CSGO if you're wondering) TLDR: show me a Windows laptop that is better than the base model Macbook Pro Note: it has to be 14 inch or under.
  14. I don't have access to my laptop sorry. I do know that it had a 500GB SSD. I don't know which one though, Task Manager said it was a Toshiba 128GB M.2 SSD, which is wrong.
