  1. So, my primary gaming monitor is an Acer Predator xb1 or something at 27 inches, IPS, 144hz, 1440p (OC to 165). It has Gsync which I adore. However, I have an itch to upgrade my 1070ti to something more substantial. I'd love to see it pegged beyond 144 FPS at max settings in GTA5 but my 1070ti is unable to pull that off. For under $700 would a 2070 super serve me better than a 5700xt as it has gsync? and at what point (FPS wise) does adaptive sync not matter? I do have a secondary 4k screen (Dell without adaptive sync. its my editing screen).

    1440p GPU

    I use a 1070ti for 1440p 90-100 FPS on very high in GTA 5

    Asus software not working (Big surprise right?)

    Is your windows up to date?

    Is 4 noctua fans enough for nzxt S340 elite?

    How different is the s340 from its elite brethren? my plain one seems to be alright thermally with a d15s on an OC 2700X, and a water cooled 1070ti (done for noise)

    1440p GPU

    Yeah before asking about a card the questions that need to be answered: 1- what’s your budget? 2- what games do you want to play? 3- do you have a 1440p monitor capable of displaying > 60 FPS? 4- are you willing to not run the game on very high to ultra settings? assuming you’re into triple A games, and have a high refresh panel, and money is not an issue... a 2070 at least from the green team, and possibly a 5700xt from the red team.
  6. Hit 35 a couple of months back... My video gaming history dates back to an Atari 2600, followed by an MSX computer. In 1989 we bought our own PC; it was an Advanced Logic Research IBM compatible. 386 sx with 4 mb of ram, a 3.5 inch floppy, a 5 1/4 inch floppy, and 2 hard drives. Sadly had to rely on a PC speaker for a while. First PC game we ever finished was the original Prince of Persia. Sierra Online was the best game publisher out there with series like Police quest, quest for glory, kings quest, and space quest being memorable releases. One day, my father comes home after traveling to the states with a Packard Bell Pentium 100 Mhz (oh yeah it was trash =P ) but it was my first full multimedia PC. A few years later, had a hand me down Compaq workstation... I kept building / modifying PCs until 2010. I moved, and "grew up". Adulting became hard and time consuming. I also had to pay my own bills and rent which put a different spin on things. Fast forward to 2017... AMD releases Ryzen, I have some money to burn, wife's travelled overseas, and I discovered that the place called microcenter near me sells computer parts... God I put a smile on the salesperson's face... After around $1500 I walked out with a haul that did not include any monitors or peripherals as I had those for my mac mini which I used for some office work. Built the thing during the day, installed windows 10, and then decided that my first install would be Grand Theft Auto 5. Things have spiraled since then =P

    Windows 10 Has Caused Nothing But Pain

    I have never used windows 7 as I was an Apple fanatic for a sad part of 2010-2017, and then AMD showed me the way back to the PC world. But this latest Windows 10 update has been funny. Granted my windows install is 2 years old now, and I should probably format and reinstall it, which is something that I hadnt done on my mac OS machines. the longest I had an OS install on a mac was 5 years and it ran just fine. BTW there is a hidden setting in windows 10 that allows you to "clean reinstall" windows 10 while maintaining your documents

    Upgrading to an SSD for my Laptop

    Yeah cloning is to maintain your old files... Honestly when switched from a HDD to an SSD I would never clone the drive. The boot record needs to be properly made along with the file system. Go with a clean install. That hard drive looks perfect.

    I need help

    Please go on vacation or play outside for around ten days. Once Ryzen 3000 releases pricing will change. Your money will go farther. Unless you dont expect prices to drop where you live

    Upgrading to an SSD for my Laptop

    I wouldnt clone the drive. If you can grab drivers off of the manufacturer website, I'd go with a clean install. You should be able to find your windows key on your laptop somewhere (physically). If using windows 10 you should be able to download the ISO file and write it to a USB drive.

    Windows 10 Has Caused Nothing But Pain

    It's fascinating how MS hasnt gotten their stuff together. Dos was riddled with bugs (yeah I know they didnt make it), windows 3.1 had issues with multimedia, 95 was wishy washy, 98 was meh, dont get me started on ME, XP may have been the most stable, 7 was alright, 8 was trash, 8.1 was less trash, 9 is not for consumer use, and 10... oh windows 10. I understand that supporting many pieces of hardware is difficult, but your own controllers? really? Anyways I do agree this latest update has caused by Ryzen system to have very infrequent stutters. I dont know what the heck its doing.

    The reason why high end board still keep a PS2 port is a matter of perception. On a USB keyboard, the CPU keeps pulling the keyboard every few microseconds asking “is anything pressed? Is anything pressed? What about now? You sure nothing is pressed?” with a PS2 keyboard or mouse when an action is performed by the user the CPU gets interrupted with “god has issued a command” silliness aside, there is a theoretical benefit in terms of latency to the latter, although modern keyboards and mice support extremely high polling rates rendering it a moot point. a tidbit, the PS2 port is named after the IBM PS2 computer, but its proper name is a mini-DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung)

    What card to pick

    Do you need to build this PC today? Can it wait a couple of weeks? Are you in North America? if you answered No, Yes and Yes, then I’d wait till July 7th. With the release of Ryzen 3000 and Navi, interesting things are bound to happen to the Ryzen 2000 series and lower tier Nvidia cards. You will likely get more for your money

    Computer keeps freezing on startup?

    Try clearing the cmos. Check your motherboard instructions.
