    At what resolution do you game?

    At high resolutions the bottleneck will be your 2060 even with an older Intel at 4Ghz.

    If you don't game at high-res check something like anandtechs list of best gaming CPUs.

    I still have to upgrade a monitor(use a cheap acer v226HQL), but i think i would stick to 1080, maybe 1440, never 4k

  2. Hi, I bought a 2060 and a good power (800w)supply like 4 months ago, 


    before that i had a pretty functional but oldish system with no gpu



    i5-3570(clocked at 4.0)

    16 gbs ram


    so obviously my bottleneck is now my cpu, it plays nice but gpu is not being used that much from what i see.


    What would be a good cpu to try and get juice out of my GPU? also what MB should i pair it with




  3. I am plating with a i5-3570 and a 2060, at max settings i am getting 60 fps, v-sync on since without it i had lots of tearing.


    my cpu is a little overclocked to like 4.12ghz,



    I know most times my cpu will bottleneck my gpu, i plan to upgrade in the future, but running shadow of tomb raider i see the cpu going full load and gpu at 6% on task manager, but on fraps it is 100% cpu and 50%~ on GPU, is this normal?





  4. I'm staring to get some kind of panic over loosing information because of drive failure.


    i currently have a machine with decent specs, not up to date but works good.


    CPU: i5-3570

    16 gb ram ddr3 1333MHZ

    p8Z77 mb

    SSD1: 250GB (os)

    HDD1: 500GB

    HDD2: 250GB



    I really don't want to get a NAS, but I'm not closed mind into not getting one, just that the computer is always on so i don't see why get more HW.


    what would be the best way into getting some redundancy and maybe write speed? i am willing into getting new HDD's (2 or 4).


    do i need virtualization of some kind? or just software?


    I'm a bit lost.





  5. is for a new pc build, the pc is mainly as a workstation it has i9-9900k, 32 gb ram,im adding a corsair 650w 80 plus white, the cpu is getting an corsair h45. im getting the card cause i have about that amount to spare and it would be nice to also game on the pc. i live in mexico and i can get a gigabyte 1070 ti AUORUS for ~450USD, or a 2060 for about that price.

  6. so i have this image.png.3925b68e21598dacbd8bfecf7a489b4d.png its a bit old but i want to know some opinions on what should i do with this machine. i want to be able to game something like CS GO maybe some destiny 2. If i bought a 1070 should it be a good enough build? or should i consider building a whole new system? im trying to do this on the lowest budget possible. if i needed to get a new build i might as well get my gpu first and get it inside this machine and start swapping stuff little by little, maybe buy next the cpu and mobo. after that decent ram etc. opinions on this?

    you should plug it into a desktop using a sata connection and manually copy the files over

    I did that and now i can see the drive, thanks! on another matter, for some reason my user folder won't open it takes lots of time and it never opnes, could the disk be damaged? with a software called minitool i can see the folders and files inside but it doesn't have a feature to copy the files. any Idea how to recover the data?

  8. i had a windows 10 installation on my laptop, and for some reason i was having some problems where sometimes it would boot, i gave up and fresh installed windows on another drive, now i want to try and recover information from that drive, when i connect it through a sata adapter i have via usb, windows doesn't recognize it, and if i go to windows disk management i see the drive as  healthy GPT protected. how can i access my data?

  9. Hi, I got a motherboard P8Z77-m and i just found out that it supports RAID with INTEL rapid storage technology, and i wanted to know if it is a good solution, ATM i got a 3 tb HDD and a brand new samsung 850 EVO 250GB, I use my computer for programming purposes and some light Gaming, what would be my best option to get great performance and for storage integrity? should i buy another HDD or SSD?


    Is it difficult to set up? i have no problem into clean installing windows, i need to do that anyways.
