  1. Well, it just did another little shutdown, no voltage or temp spikes from what I saw. Doubt it's my ram either, I tend to run a memtest86 at least once every week to ensure there's no faults with my ram.
  2. I get what you meant, but I'm saying if I returned to linux (because windows is a ram hog) then I wouldn't be able to play 2 of my most frequently played titles.

    Anyone else want to see LTT do Scrapyard Wars in Europe?

    BudgetBuildsOfficial is actually one of my favourite channels aside from Linus and Jay, mostly because its like having scrapyard wars all year round and you can actually pick up on how to get a decent rig for cheap using that channel. Discord community for that channel is pretty chill too, everyone seems to share love for tech and (most) of us love scrapyard wars so it's an ideal channel for us. Linus doing a europe based scrapyard wars would be fun though :).
  4. hmm, the annoying thing is that if I were to return to linux, I wouldn't be able to play gta 4 or fallout 3 (tried both, they don't play very nicely with wine or lutris).
  5. Ha, if only installing fortnite was the answer to my problem
  6. Usually around 5 - 10 minutes. Everything performs as normal (fps, frametime and graphics wise) it just randomly shuts down between 5 - 10 minutes. Odd because I've never had this trouble before on other systems I own, even ones that I used to run with the same PSU as this machine.
  7. So far the games I've tested are the following: Rocket League GTA 4 Trackmania Turbo Fallout 3 Garrys Mod CSGO
  8. Well, been a while since I've been on here, but I'm back with a rather annoying problem. When I'm trying to game on Windows 10, my PC randomly shuts down after a certain amount of time. I never seem to have this problem when playing on linux for some reason. Any solutions to my problem? My specs are as follows: AMD Phenom x4 9650 (stock clocks) Zalman CNPS5X Performa 5GB DDR2 (didn't have another 2 or 4gb stick) Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (checked, no errors) Biostar GF8200C M2+ XFX Ghost Thermal AMD Radeon HD 7770 (stock clocks) EVGA 430W PSU (low on the tier list but I've never previously run into problems with it on other systems) Thanks for your help!
  9. I mean, I still use an old dell P190S, their resolution isn't good compared to modern monitors but they still offer a pretty solid gaming experience in 2018. Got mine on discount from my local second hand shop down from £40 to just over £20.

    Google Chrome RAM Saver

    Last chrome version I ran on it was like 67 or something. I'm sure that had the spectre patch on it, idk.

    Google Chrome RAM Saver

    My old inspiron 530 could run masses of chrome tabs easily and that old heap only had 4GB DDR2.

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Just put windows or linux onto it if you want to get onto a modern OS once your macOS version goes out of support.

    I'm betting either a P3 or something that's AMD.
