  1. Buy an ok cheap mouse, if your keyboard isn't fine, upgrade that as well. Then afterward if you think you can go for the better GPU. A used RX580 or 570 seem to be very good options.

    Ok Thank you very much

    Planning My First Build

    There really isn't any reason to overclock the ram in your computer unless its a lower clock. Everything here seems fine. Maybe go for a Mushkin pilot or a WD Blue SN500. They are the same price but are NVME drives

    Windows 10 Drive Migration

    Hi, I currently have an 8-year-old WD 250GB 7200RPM drive in my computer, I plan on getting a Mushkin Pilot 500GB SSD. Is there any way I can migrate the old drives complete contents to the new drive. If not I have no problem just reinstalling Windows.
  5. Make sure you get a version if you do for the GDDR5 Vram over the DDR4. There is a huge performance gap.

    Definitive Version of Minecraft???

    Java has better/more mods to it as well as servers as it is the OG Minecraft, but if you look around keys for Windows 10 Editions can be very cheap (like 5 bucks), due to everyone who had Java before w10 edition came out got one when it did. But Windows 10 Edition also can play with console and mobile as well i believe.

    HELP! How should i upgrade my computer?

    Agreed, a WD Blue SN500 would be a great drive to add in as its only 70 bucks or something. The 1660ti tho is a much smaller upgrade from a 1060, but it is a fine one.

    Computer Keeps shutting down

    Ok, the PSU seems to have worked, its no longer shutting down and later I installed the GPU and it still works fine without crashing.

    I've run the thermals and they seem fine if anything the CPU might be underclocked a bit. So I think that the problem is what you said it was and its the PSU, it is around 8 years old and its only 305W. I've put in an order for a EVGA 450W Bronze. Thanks for the help and I'll see if it helps.

    No new thread ripper CPU?

    The reason people are skeptical is AMD is supposedly pushing 16 cores and 32 threads on their highest end consumer model. Beating even some of the old thread rippers. But all of these are just rumors, just like how there used to be a rumor about how this gen would have a 64 core threadripper, beating intels Xeon with 56 cores. They probably are going to release some, its just that its not as "active" of a community as the consumer ones is and there are less leaks and less speculation. Also they seem to but the thread rippers out a season or 2 later than the consumer chips.

    CPU Fan is plugged into the CPU fan header, and I did use the stock paste.

    That was my second thought after the PSU, I think I did an ok job of attaching the fan/thermal paste, but the front mounted fan in very unreliable. But as soon as I get home I will check. Is there anything I should look for as well?

But the problem is is that it seems to stop randomly, mainly under a bit of a heavier load, CSGO, and geforce now. The computer is still running but the screen will freeze and then go black. At this point I turn it off then back on. I am doing no overclocking on the computer. The power supply is a 305W psu (which I am upgrading soon for an RX580 that I have, just haven't put in yet because of the weak PSU). Any ideas on what this could be and how I can fix it?
