    suggestions for RX 570

    Noise isn't very important.

    suggestions for RX 570

    Yeah, I'm alright with a dual slot. If you say my selection will do okay, then I guess I'll keep my selection at #1.

    suggestions for RX 570

    Found a PSU that would work A-OK with my HP prebuilt. You can see the product specifications of said prebuilt here. Now all I need is a GPU that will fit my small form-factor case. I decided an RX 570 would be the best choice for me. The one I may choose is here. But I still want suggestions for an even smaller one. My requirements are below. -I would want it to be between 100-175 US Dollars. 200 Dollars Max. -I would prefer a single fan design so I know it would fit for sure. -Come from a well-known brand. (MSI, Saphire, Gigabyte) -4-5 Stars, Eggs, etcetera... -New or some kind of certified refurbished. -I wouldn't mind single slot but dual slot is perfectly okay. -Looks don't matter. I can't see into my PC when the case panel is on. I chose the 570 because of the decent spec and cheaper prices. If you have other suggestions for a GPU with similar qualifications from above (AMD or Nvidia) I'd be really happy to hear them.
  4. I took apart an old desktop and put the HDD in my own computer since I had a spare SATA Port. It's only 640G, but the more the merrier, right? I plan to use the old PC as an encoder yadda-yadda not really important. Up until now, I haven't had any reason to write to that drive. I wanted to install a game to it today but was met with a permission error. No biggie. I head over to F: drive >properties > Security > Everyone > Full Control. I'm the only one who uses the PC so I'd be fine with that option. When I go to click reply I'm met with an error. The computer I took the drive from was the computers ONLY drive. During its stay on that computer, it had three operating systems on it. Vista, 7, and 10. What could be the issue of this? If wiping the drive clean is a solution, it has to be a last resort. My parents had this for years before getting their own laptops. This drive could have at least 4-5 years of old tax stuff on it for all I know. I'm a dumb teenager and have no idea how any of that can be useful one day. Anything would be helpful.
  5. I have 8 GB of DDR4 total, and in task manager, I have 6.9 that's useable. Some mega math is being done and that's 1.1 GB of ram that's hardware reserved. Is this an issue that can't be resolved until I get more? This confuses me because I had a laptop before this with only 4GB of DDR3, and an i3 with HD 5500 IGPU. It ran with h264 pretty well for those standards.
  6. So I've recently been wanting to start making videos as a hobby (I won't bore you with channel details). A while back I installed OBS and set some lower-end settings for encoding and whatnot, just to be safe. But I had an issue with trying to use the H264 format. I've been stuck with H265, which isn't supported by my preferred video editor. Or I'm using x264, which is extremely inefficient in my current build. I've been able to record with H265 and play it on VLC. I have a Ryzen 3 with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics. Anytime I try to use H264 encoding I get this error: I have updated my drivers, resulting in a trip to safe mode and a nice bootup of DDU. These are my current settings: Rescale Output is 1280x720 and I have no custom muxer settings. What can I do to make OBS record with H264
  7. Its raining rocks.

    GPU or PSU Problem?

    This sounds really weird. From my understanding, the PC will refuse to turn on if the 8-pin power on the GPU is plugged into the PSU. But it will turn on when the GPU isn't plugged in? I have two guesses for why this could be happening. 1. Your PSU is faulty and you should try and get a new one from Corsair. Corsair is still a great brand! You just got a dud. 2. This is much less likely, but your PC may be wanting more power than what the PSU can deliver. If your PC has been running for a month now, I highly doubt this. I have two solutions for this. 1. See if you can borrow a more powerful PSU from a friend that's compatible with your parts, and hasn't failed on your bud. If you can get that to run, under some kind of task, (I would recommend something like a benchmark so that it puts everything at max capacity) then you would simply need a new PSU. 2. If your a PUSS- haha just kidding. If you're a bit worried over whether or not you should test a PSU that doesn't belong to you, I would just buy a new one. If it fails again after a while, then there is something else that's wrong with your PC.

  10. In my previous post (dont bother looking back at it) I wondered if I should roll back to Windows 7. To put it into one word, don't. So it got me thinking, what do I and others want out of the next operating system that Microsoft rolls out? I'd simply like less bloatware and better optimization. What about the community? What do you want out of the next OS?

    Should I downgrade?

    I found an old Windows 7 Home Premium install disk, and I'm wondering if I should roll back from 10 to 7? I only ever game on my PC. I have a Ryzen CPU, and no GPU at the moment. I believe extended support ends in 2020. I have drive to back up everything and whatnot. Is it truly worth my time?
  12. I know that SA is an older game, and older games have new problems on new OS's. But dangit lemme play some games! I'm able to start the game and choose a file to load, but right when the environment actually wants to load in, the game crashes.This is a vanilla copy of GTA SA. I have not modded my game at all, or tried to do anything that wasn't intended to be done. Is there any way to fix this issue? When I try to google search solutions I get forum posts from 2007-2010. Y'know, when everyone thought Vista was the holy grail of OS's.

    PC won't detect separate audio devices

    Thanks a lot! After running DDU and booting back into normal mode, my PC detected speakers and headphones. However, I didn't have to reinstall latest realtek drivers. But like I said, everything is working great now.
  14. My PC won't detect separate audio devices. My speakers have power and are plugged into the Green Line Out port on my computer. They worked up until half an hour ago when I installed new AMD Drivers & Software. My front headphone jack won't work either! The sound is coming through my monitor speakers via HDMI. Things I have tried: Going into device manager > Sound, video, and game controllers > Changing the AMD preset to High Definition Audio Device Uninstalling the AMD Drivers then Re-Installing Restarting a bunch. Nothing seems to be working. I'm really annoyed over this so I'm sorry if my grammar or whatever the heck else is off. I'll be more than happy to provide any info if needed.

    Upgrading a prebuilt for a 1050ti

    I'll be sure to pick up the card. All I need is a power supply that will fit my case, support the board, and make sure it can provide 8 pin power. I actually chose the 1050 because of the fact it has no power connectors, it just draws power from the PCIe port. Do you have any suggestions for a PSU that will work with my PC? Or should I just go ask a brand like Corsair and ask for help via email? And just to let you know, I heard HP makes a 320W PSUs for my model of PC, it just doesn't give out 8 pin power. If I don't have the ability to use a different brand of PSU, I'll have to stick with the 1050ti. I'll try and dig deeper and see if I need to contact another brand. In the meantime, however, I would appreciate it if you gave me any tips.
