  1. using a windows 7 product key to get windows 10...
  2. Dell optiplex i3-3220 8gb ram I'm using windows 7 because this computer used to be windows 7 before the hdd was taken out, and I don't have a windows 10 copy anywhere
  3. Okay so I recently got a dell desktop computer without a hard drive and tried using an old hard drive with windows 7 installed onto this computer, but it won't start. Any suggestions? The old hard drive was from an hp computer, will that change things?
  4. https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-100-BR-0450-K1-Bronze-Power-Supply/dp/B01N9X3F8F/ref=sr_1_5?crid=18L588E6RMFH1&keywords=400w%2B80%2B%2Bpower%2Bsupply&qid=1579482649&sprefix=400w%2B80%2Caps%2C210&sr=8-5&th=1 I would reccomend not going cheap on your psu, especially if you have expensive components, but if you really are on a tight budget, go with this
  5. Alright, I am considering getting into virtual reality, as I have heard really good things about it. But before I go up and buy a 500$ headset, I want to know what I can to know if I'm making a mistake by buying one thing over the other, etc. First question. What virtual reality headset should I get? I would assume pc-powered vr is better, and I would much rather pc anyways, but is there a difference on the brands? I've been looking at the Occulus Rift S, as it's in my budget and it's pc powered, are there any other brands that I should know about that is better? Second Question: I've heard of something called "screen door effect" that people complain about on VR, I've looked it up and kinda know what it is, but is that a problem anymore? Did they fix it? Third Question: I've heard of a pc/laptop being "VR ready". What does that mean? Do you have to have certain programs installed to do vr? Or is it just saying that it fits the vr requirements? Fourth Question: Is VR worth it with the build I have? Here's my build: CPU: Intel I5-4590, 12gb ddr3 ram, GTX 970. It's not technically a full gaming pc, but it fits the reccommended requirements for VR. I'm not looking at going all out in vr, I just want to experience what everyone is talking about. Is that possible without changing my build? Fifth Question: Is there a time of the year to buy where it is cheaper? Sixth Question: Any other things I should be aware of when it comes to vr? Thanks ahead of time, I'm trying not to be clueless, so any info is appreciated
  6. If your ram is unsupported as you say, I would try replacing that too, unless you already have. Just get a 4gb stick or something and see if that solves the problem
  7. Hm. you replaced the ram, psu and gpu....my only guess would be the mobo.
  8. How old is that drive, and what's the brand? Have you checked the state of the drive to see if it's corrupt? It might not be windows' fault, the drive may just be faulty
  9. Okay I'll try that... Question though, when I jacked the base clock up more before and tried running 3dmark, i got a red screen for around 5 seconds(this was after it crashed twice) why did that happen?
  10. Which drive is windows on? Did you reinstall a fresh windows on the same drive?
  11. Why is there such a small power slider and such a large base clock slider then?
  12. Okay first of all, this is my first time overclocking my gpu, I've never tried anything as daring as this and quite frankly I'm a little nervous. But everyone claims it's safe so I went and downloaded MSI afterburner. First thing I notice is a temp limit. Okay, so if I get to whatever temp I set it'll stop overclocking. Even more safe. I fiddle with the controls a bit, turn my fan curve up, and up the power to 105%, up the base clock +200, then run 3dmark on steam. Yay, I got 20 points higher. Well, that much isn't gonna really get me anywhere in games, so I tried going higher, and it wouldn't work. 3dmark kept crashing, and when it finally did work, I got a worse score than without afterburner. Why? Is there a limit to how much I can overclock? I was watching the gpu temps the whole time, they never went above 70 degrees celcius. Am I using afterburner wrong?
  13. If cooling isn't a problem, then I will consider it, but does that case have room to add fans? Other than airflow, what's the cons of using a micro atx case and mobo vs a regular atx?
  14. You want me to put a ryzen processor and a rtx 2070 super in a micro atx case? with no extra fans? Yeah when I said future proof I also meant I want it to not burn up within the five years as well. If ray tracing isn't that effective anyways, maybe I'll look at a gtx 1660ti or rx 5600xt. Aren't they a little cheaper anyways? I can easily add ram if I need to. The mobo I'm looking at supports up to 64gb and is quad channel, if I need to I'll just add another 16gb(doubtful) but ram is the last concern I have right now, because like the gpu, I can change that later down the road if needed.
