  1. I regret to inform that the R9 270X I purchased locally has ceased to function properly. The card, while somewhat functional, has begun to artifact. Not being too fond of the red bars across my display, I decided to pick up a RX 470 online. Five days later, and here's the card! This new card is specifically a Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB unit. I have to say, I really do appreciate the physical LED controller on this model. Software can be updated in a way contrary to my liking, but no one is taking away my palpable button.
  2. Stadia arrived today! I haven't gotten much time to play with it, but I'm having no latency issues.

  3. If the seller has respectable ratings, then you should be safe with the mining card.
  4. I've had no problems buying cards that were used for mining. If your power supply can support it, I would pick the 470 over the 560.
  5. To summarize this video, the "GTX 1060ti" destroyed the test system. I admire how Jay handled the situation, losing a 3670K would have been a significant blow to my morale.

      would have made for more drama to milk if something went up in smoke

  6. This is the first time I've had a post selected as best answer! I am quite pleased.

    Original thread: 


  7. Even though the seller is claiming to have staff, he/she doesn't seem very professional. The one week warranty is also a bit sketchy, I'd look more into who's selling this. If you do decide to purchase the computer, you'd want to go into the "About you PC" setting in Windows to make sure there's a 9900k. Next, open "Device manager" and then open the "Display adapters" tab. There should be text along the lines of "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080" at that point. If you can, I'd physically open up the computer to make sure a 2080 is really inside the system. It's not uncommon for swindlers to change how software detects the name of a graphics card. Also, welcome to the forum!
  8. After a brief hiatus, I reverted my attention back to the Dell Optiplex. Today was painting day; the paint job isn't fully complete yet, but here's a front panel picture for now.
  9. Here are my suggestions: 1) Take nice photos. Have a clean background, keep the computer in focus, and show all angles of the system. 2) Benchmark a series of games. Find the average FPS your system can deliver in some leading titles and give an exact average. If the computer can't run a game above 50FPS, lower the settings/resolution until it hits a better average. 3) Post on as many local selling platforms as possible. 4) Add to your description a little bit. I would have a short paragraph at the beginning of the listing with basic specifications and what applications/genes of games the computer's good for, followed by benchmarks and detailed parts list. I think that a little "Thanks for looking!" at the end is a nice touch.
  10. I find that cable management is all up to personal preference. I like to tidy every cable right as I install the component with the said cable, but do whatever works for you.
  11. Two 1TB HDDs from Free Geek have arrived! I purchased both of these HGST drives for a total of $24. 1TB hard drives usually sell for around $18-$20, so $12 per drive is pretty nice.
  12. No need to be sorry! From what I can tell, your board supports up to 1600MHz DDR3 without overclocking and up to 2400Mhz when you overclock. In order to get 1866MHz, you'll have to overclock your memory. By default, your motherboard will underclock your RAM to ensure compatibility. So yes, 1866 RAM is compatible with your board, but you'll have to change some settings in you motherboard's BIOS to get it running at full speed.
  13. I advise that you test your hardware outside the case. I made the mistake of not doing it on a system that I'm still in the middle of working on; I had to undo eight hours of work to narrow down what components were malfunctioning and send them back to the seller.
  14. I'd only get it if there's some sort of return policy.
  15. Welcome to the forum! If I were you, I'd add an SSD to your rig. Depending where you live, they're fairly inexpensive and will have definite effect on the snappiness of your system. A 240GB drive will usually sell for $30 USD, and a 500GB drive hovers around the $45-$60 USD mark.
