    Help finding bios chip

    I was given a graphics card from someone who bought a fake graphics card from Ebay. The card was advertised as a 1050 ti and I discovered from GPUz that the card is actually a GTX 650 Ti. I did some research I bought the necessary equipment to do a hardware flash of the bios... problem is I cant seem to figure out where the bios chip is. Here are some pictures of the card.

    Gigabyte Motherboard won't post

    You might be right, after examining the socket I think I see where it burnt out.

    Gigabyte Motherboard won't post

    I am rebuilding some old PCs and one of my motherboards is acting a bit strange. Normally, in my experience, if a motherboard is dead you dont really get power to anything. When I start this one up all peripherals come online, hard drive spins up, CPU cooler spins up (and remains spinning) and GPU fans spin up. There is no beep, but that's because there is no on bored speaker on this system. At them moment I have tried multiple GPUs from a 8600 gt, GTX 1060, and a Vega 64... all with the same results. I have tried CPUs from another machine, AMD Athlon x64 duel core I have changed the motherboard battery. I have tried multiple PSU units I have tried multiple monitors I have tried running the RAM in every configuration possible including duel channel and quad channel. All seems to do the same thing. The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 Any ideas?

    Advice on new build plan

    I probably could wait till mid February and be okay, I might just have less hair, and a larger forehead shaped dent in my desk. Just looking at the budget though, were at about $1,300 USD right now with a $350 GPU. Now I know I can buy some items bundled and get some discount, so let's say we cut out the GPU and were at maybe, $900USD net. If the R VII really hold at $700 I'll be over my max budget a bit at $1,600USD... And honestly guys, am I the only one disgusted by the fact the CPU chip alone is almost the cost of everything else combined?! What the hell happened?

    Advice on new build plan

    Oh well... my main workstation, the GPU just died, and I use it as a media server for my entire house. At the moment I'm limping along with my laptop. The desktop I was running had a duel core AMD Athlon 64, 8 gigs of ram, and a VisonTek 4550 AMD GPU. So that computer was not worth much anyways, but hey it live a long happy life.

    Advice on new build plan

    I thought about that option too, and honestly that was pushing me towards to RTX 2060, as it's going to have a good resell value. So I could pick up the 2060 for $350, and in 6 months ditch it on ebay for probably $250-$300 and pick up the R VII card a bit later.

    Advice on new build plan

    I was thinking about going with a Vega 64, or on the lower end a RX 580. The Vega 64 wouldn't add much to the cost and I do like the idea of keeping everything with the same chip family (AMD preferred) The new Radon VII in February would be nice, but at $700 it's a hard sell. For my budget.

    Advice on new build plan

    I am building a new tower, as my old one is about 10 years old and I just need an upgrade. I am really only focused on the tower itself at the moment, I have a separate budget for peripherals. My goal was to stay between $1,000 USD to $1,300 USD with a total maximum price of $1,500 USD. This computer should be a good all round computer for basic CAD, software development, and maybe some light gaming. With some fancy RGB goodness too, because why not? I have not built a computer in some time, and would like some feedback on the parts I have selected. I am very interesting in the argument between the GTX 1070 VS RTX 2060.
