  1. BSOD getting desperate

    update the BIOS of the mobo run with one stick of RAM
  2. BSOD getting desperate

    your mobo chipset driver, LAN, storage drivers if any and GPU
  3. BSOD getting desperate

    is there anything else on the PC i might suggest doing a clean re-install of the OS and install all the drivers one by one
  4. yea it kinda sucks that good CPU are out of stocks now Black friday sales
  5. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($269.99 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus - PRIME X370-PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard ($109.99 @ Newegg) Total: $379.98 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-11-23 22:46 EST-0500 PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core Processor ($199.89 @ B&H) Motherboard: Asus - TUF Z370 Pro Gaming ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($129.99 @ Amazon) Total: $329.88 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-11-23 22:45 EST-0500 right now the 1700X is the sweetspot for price to high OC it just 10 buck more than the 1700 but you need to factor in the air cooler since the 1700X and 1800X dont come with the stock cooler while the 1700 has the box cooler
  6. Do I need a hard drive?

    well Turn10 didnt lie that the game is beautiful in 4K on their Xbone One X I will imagine future VR *ahem* porn *ahem* will be way more detail at the cost of more HDD space
  7. compare the prices of the two CPU currently the high cost of the Intel with the Z370 boards is what make ppl go for the AMD also the AMD CPU price cuts makes it more enticing
  8. that is because the games and apps out there are not 8 core ready so the 2 cores on the Ryzen 7 is not fully used the Ryzen 7 is more like "future proof"
  9. BSOD getting desperate

    its kinda generic its the Windows Kernel crashing
  10. this feels more like a side grade than an upgrade to me unless your games or apps uses 6 cores and 12 treads you wont feel the difference between the two platform you ether need to to go the Ryzen 7 1700 to see any improvements
  11. BSOD getting desperate

    do a proper install of the GPU drivers again there is some issue with it
  12. Do I need a hard drive?

    games with all the DLC and updates are getting larger and larger Forza 7 for example is already 100GB excluding future DLCs so games are not getting smaller
  13. BSOD getting desperate

    dont think do a double check because i suspect its some driver conflict
  14. [URGENT] GPU Recommendation currently got RX480

    the early RX480s are similar to the R9 390/X in terms of heat output the heating and stability issues have since been resolved in the refreshed RX 580s but if you are want a AMD GPU that runs at 65 degrees is kinda far fetch TDP is the reason why your room is heating up not the GPU temps if you want a cooler room you either need to lower your CPU and GPU clocks or extreme cases undervolt your computer
  15. BSOD getting desperate

    chipset, sound and GPU mostly
