    Optiplex 790 i3 2120 @3.3 ghz

    With the exception of the earlier i7s, like the 2600. But yeah, generally that's true, and power consumption is largely not related to generation.

    Any idea on ETA for GTX 2060 & 2050?

    The direct cu cooler design was arguably one of the best cooler designs ever made, and it's my all-time favorite, hands down. A 1060 3gb might even provide worse performance if you got a cheap one with a bad cooler, so I'd say hold out for the rumored RX 590 or the 1060 GDDR5X edition to get a real upgrade.

    Searching for a Vega 64!

    With all the tech leaks, we'd know about new high end cards already, so no home for getting Vega refresh in the next month, and they'll have their launch MSRP so a Black Friday sale wouldn't affect prices.

    Can my PC handle BO4?

    You can use a program called Different SLI Auto to SLI cards that were never meant to do so, even different GPUs like a 1060 and a 1050. However, as others have stated, "dual" is just branding

    De-lid my CPU?

    Are you already at 4GHz with this chip? If you're running stock with the H80i and getting those great temps, you can probably already start to push it and find out how far you can get. A single rad isn't much but if you have a gold sample on your hands and you never knew it, it will surprise you when you go for low voltages.

    I need some Help

    Not worth upgrading to another i5, so the only meaningful upgrades you can make are i7s. I7 6700, 6700k, 7700, and 7700k are all upgrades for you. If you can't overclock, the 6700k will be a lot like the 7700, so 7700k is the absolute best CPU for your socket.

    De-lid my CPU?

    Delidding and safety are as far apart as it gets. You can definitely get over 4 with a good radiator.

    De-lid my CPU?

    The 6th gen HEDT CPUs are actually soldered, so you'd have to really be pushing the limits to need a delid for it.

    Optiplex 790 i3 2120 @3.3 ghz

    You can get an i5 2400 for like $35 on eBay, and an i7 2600 for something around $80. I highly recommend the i7, and then save up for a cheap graphics card like a gtx 750 for $50 or so

    Optiplex 790 i3 2120 @3.3 ghz

    2120 is horribly weak for these things, but if your budget is $50 I wouldn't exactly go straight to Pcpartpicker. If you could, I recommend getting that PC and getting an i5 or an i7 from that generation to help out the process.
  11. One nitpick is that 7.5A isn't power, it's current. Power is measured in watts (most of the time)

    Upgrade ideas for very old system.

    I7 3770 if you want a cheap, simple upgrade. Other than that, if it performs the way you want, no need to upgrade

    G skill

    Doesn't seem to support multiple EPS connectors, you should ask g.skill support if a splitter would be suitable.

    Should i get this broken unknown 1080ti?

    Can't read German, what does the item description say? Does it describe how the item is broken?
  15. Reduce reuse recycle. Maybe they had a box lying around.
