  • Occupation
    Employed in a job, I really don't like that gives me an income.
  1. Oh?, just concerned cause I use a Ivy Bridge-E based build and I read up on YouTube and such that anything older than Haswell is basically screwed haha
  2. my main concern is if it'll even get a full coverage patch, rather than just the OS one. Seeing as I'm using an older platform on a 2013 CPU, (even though my 4930k still has warranty until sept 2018) as the pc is used by four people for work stuff, uni work and the likes?
  3. just wondering how the older gens will be patched and if so, fully? what kind of losses could be expected, say, with my i7 4930K?
  4. I wonder how my X79 rig will be affected, seeing as its using Ivy Bridge-E, hmm
  5. I’m on X79 here and still use a Core2 laptop (X9100 with crossfire 3870 HD’s hah) it’s personal preference with a lot of system stuff really, I mean, I’m set with my x79 build until it plops really, it has all the power I need
  6. That i5 is good enough for most things, you won’t gain much from changing to AM4 , ddr4 is stupid priced and overall, like most in this thread, I’d suggest holding onto your current build until you can afford something like Zen 2 or whatever it’ll be called (probably something like the R5 2600, haha) if you want to upgrade at all, the 3770, or its K version is will be plenty, I’ve only just upgraded my i7 3820 just for the extra threads and cache to a 4930K, but it’s personal preference really. Back to my point, an i7 3770, should do fine or just wait for the next Ryzen CPUs etc
  7. Plz help.

    I agree with best answer. as far as I know, there’s no integrated graphics on Ryzen therefore only output via a card is possible unless using an APU in it
  8. Graphics card for a 250w psu

    And there’s me with a laptop with a X9100 sat in it with two 3870 HDs haha, mind you, it isn’t my main thing, just something I bought a while back cause it seemed cool not a clue what it can do though, not much looking at this thread. But I agree, I use the X79 platform and well, the lga775 platform is now obsolete and you should look into a new system
  9. GPU Upgrade but what? 1070? 1070Ti? 1080? 1080Ti?

    Regarding this, EVGA do good ones, as for which ones, well, ACX 3.0 aren’t great (I have a acx 3 1070, and they have VRM Overheating issues) , if any ICX 3.0 versions of the 1080 SC or if you want RGB a FTW version. ASUS Strix version is rather cool too, but you pay a premium for the name I guess?
  10. I were thinking of a Ryzen 5 build before this pc were built but well, guess it’s no worry, with this one, thanks!
  11. FAKE GTX 960 4GB review

    Ahh, someone tried passing a fermi card as Maxwell, holy crap glad I bought my Graphics in person now, hope it gets resolved somehow
  12. Low fps? Evga gtx 1080 hybrid

    All I can suggest is clean install your Nvidia drivers and see if there’s leftover amd ones, maybe even look into any for your system in general (drivers etc) and well, other than seeing what hogs your resources and the per core usage. I have no other ideas there, sorry if I’m no help
  13. What gpu to go with

    For that, as most here have suggested, a 1080 or ti version if it’s within your budget for that kind of resolution and FPS/hz
  14. I were more thinking, a Titan and my i7, SLI as far as knew had to be two of the same gen and card spec (to some degree) but yeah, just glad and well, nothing ram wise an issue? DDR3 At 1866 is all good?
  15. Just an enquiry about whether a gtx 1070 is a good pair for my i7 4930K in general, gaming, rendering (light stuff, for now) could my 1866mhz ram speed limit them at all? I use an ssd and it’s all air cooled system wise in a HAF X case, with a Corsair GS800 watt PSU etc. I thought about getting a Maxwell Titan too, but that seems pointless, any info or anything to be aware of? Thanks
