  1. Have you tried just installing and running them in compatability mode for Windows XP?
  2. What video card do you have? Are you using it for stream encoding acceleration?
  3. I bet you can buy it at Ikea if it's an Ikea wardrobe.
  4. Can't hurt if it's getting hammered. However if it's an early example, there could be a case made for repasting and ensuring proper contact pressure from the heatsink. Keep in mind that room temperature, case airflow, CPU heat dumping into the case and location and direction of the power supply can all effect GPU temps too, so if there is optimizations available elsewhere in the system, those would be worth doing before the repasting, as that can be a bit of a pain on modern AMD cards especially for some reason. They're much more sensitive to mounting pressure than I recall at any time since bare die CPUs were commonplace about 10 years ago.
  5. Vega 56 uses HMB memory, which is not a separate chip on the board like GDDR is, it's actually bonded to the GPU to allow wider and faster communication lanes between them, but it also means that there is a shared heat load between them. The more VRAM is in use, the more heat it is creating, the less thermal room the GPU cores have to boost and visa versa.
  6. That would depend entirely on to whom they were given. I think the effect would be greater the further back you go, to a point obviously. Keep in mind that the modern use case basically didn't exist today so the technology would be put to very different effect. Unless you also took the software back with you, which could actually have a bigger effect, especially if coders who actually cared about efficiency got their hands on modern software and chose to lean it out and optimize it.
  7. Until the RX 5500 series comes out the GTX 1660 Super is the best value, but by the time you actually build the system that could have changed.
  8. 2.5 or 5 gig networking from Intel, or 10 gig from aquantia for the PCs. I presume they will supply a Modem that has a network port that can handle that speed, please check that first. If it just has multiple gigabit ports then you can not use more speed than that by any one system at a time, so you will need to do nothing on your network, and you'll have to distribute the load in order to take advantage of the internet connection.
  9. I agree with the cat. Not just on spec as it's a cat. But the 570 is definitely the weakest link.
  10. I'm not sure of the regional adoption of Facebook streaming, but I would bet YouTube is the better option, especially internationally.
  11. Your profiles says you're in the USA, where are you? Cause they absolutely are available here.
  12. You should get an email with tracking information when it's been accepted and ready for shipping. They're good buds, especially for $120, and free is a great value.
  13. I can't see any parts he's not wasting money on IMHO!
  14. The closest one to MSRP with a triple fan aftermarket cooler design. The rest is single digit differences at best in real world performance with a $10+ premium per percent.
