  1. I am wondering if it would be worth getting another Radeon RX 570 4GB (from XFX) for my system. I currently have one and am extremely pleased with the performance, and there are deals now where I can get a new one for $100 USD. Would it be worth getting another for the added compute performance? I don't do much gaming, but I do some fairly intensive tasks sometimes. EDIT: I want to add that I don't really have the budget to spend on a new single GPU that would be more powerful.
  2. I got it working with just messing around with settings. The CPU is a Ryzen 7 2700. Thanks everyone.
  3. I have to reset the CMOS to get it to POST after changing the speed. I tried both sets of slots.
  4. I recently built a system based on the ASRock B450 Steel Legend board and I am having issues with memory. It is G.Skill Aegis DDR4 3000 (16GB). The current speed is 2133MHz, but whenever I choose DDR4-3000 in the setup or enable XMP the system won't POST. Any ideas?
  5. Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR available to order on December 10. I'm excited!

      Wait, the Pro Display is compatible with other VESA mounts besides the $999 display mount right?

  6. If you were looking for your data, you would need to use macOS to see that partition.
  7. I don't see a problem with this, it makes sense that they would be together.
  8. That isn't what they need. They need something for when they move the computer, not for other devices on one network.
  9. I would recommend installing a fresh copy of the OS and then moving her files over to their respective directories. That way you get a fresh OS and can clean up some old stuff while you're at it.
  10. I don't know when it would happen for those CPUs, but we sort of already have budget 6 core chips with the Ryzen 5 series. The 1600 and 2600 can be pretty cheap these days. I've seen the 2600 available for $110 USD. Of course, you also have older chips, such as the older Xeons that still hold their own pretty well.
  11. If you are getting a new router, take @Slottr's advice and don't fall for the gaming marketing. A product doesn't have to have "gaming" in the name to be good for gaming.
  12. I would suggest Mint for both of them. My choice would be the MATE version. It seems to run very well on older hardware.
  13. It really depends on what your needs are. How many drives will you need? Do you want the ability to hot swap drives? I have seen people reuse old cases from prebuilt systems before with good success, although with a limit to how many drives can be used.
