  1. Welcome! Start looking into m.2 solid state drives. Never install an OS on a hard drive again. Ryzen 3 doesn't boost all the way....... they wouldn't recommend it here but you can almost turn any old potato into a something thats too fast for a grandma now days. We're still at 64 bit. 128 bit will probably never happen.
  2. You think artist are making money? With yalls clicky fingers wearing out that left click. 5 to 15 bucks.. Lmfao those water bottles cost more than that.... (don't forget the underwear.) Again y'all buy expensive shit all the time, and justify it. Hows that boost clock? Y'all raise keyboards in arms to pirate your music just right. Be a good little consumer.
  3. You are fast keyboard warrior... how's that computer you got there? Be a shame if spotify located you like everyone else.
  4. People write those songs. Spotify is just a streaming service. Why don't y'all mp3 rip off lovers get back to that, or better yet. try buying an album like a good little consumer. If you can build a $2000 paperweight you can buy an under $20 professionally mastered album. This is why linus won't stop shoving water bottles and underoos down our throats. He knows you'd rather have that than pay an artist. If you don't think people deserve money, then quit listening to garbage.
  5. You can't get an nvme to work. That's what.
  6. And there is the sole reason we cannot make it to 128bit.
  7. On a tech elitist forum and you typed "you" twice straight off the bat. How did you almost kill your cat over a chip? Those goofballs with the old apple towers still have jobs and it takes them 2 hours to transfer 40 gigs over usb 2. Lol......
  8. Is your bios up to date? Ahci and nvme are not exactly compatible. Your description is what happens when you put an nvme m.2 on an ahci bios. You'll have to double check your bios settings again. Definitely check your bios date.
  9. Get this adapter if your motherboard doesn't have m.2, pcie x4 or x8. You'll have to get a nvme m.2 ssd as well. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVMe-PCIe-x4-x2-M-2-NGFF-SSD-to-PCIe-x1-converter-card-adapter-PCIe-x1-to-M-2-SM/383070604782?_mwBanner=1&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F0%2F0%2F0%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383070604782%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3Dfcdcd30216c0ac3c07f2d007fff0e5b0&ul_noapp=true&pageci=67b03574-2db2-474e-a421-c1077331a8a1
  10. Yeah the dell site has the bios update Dell updates the bios from a desktop program. Ive done it on a few. Dells always run faster after a bios update. Update before you switch to i7. Gtx 1050 would be alright. I'd lean more towards a gtx960, or gtx 1060. Other people on this forum would think you should get something like an rx 470, rx480, or rx580 those are fine too. The pcie adapter is only for m.2 nvme or ahci solid state drives. A standard sata solid state drive would be fine but m.2 drives can move faster. The adapter can be found on Ebay or Amazon just search for "pcie m.2 adapter" you do not need it for the i7 cpu or gpu card. Sandy and ivy bridge motherboards you have to remove the board from the case and remove the bracket for the stock cooler off the back of the board. The dell one is ok. You will not be overclocking with that motherboard so i wouldn't worry too much about the cooler.
  11. I swear if you just get a giant heatpipe cooler, or closed loop radiator. More fans. Some good thermal paste, any sata ssd that is at least 960gb in capacity, and a new fancy gpu. Look into larger capacity hard drives. Like 3 and 4tb, or more. Get the overclock right, and stop worrying about ssd life expectancy. This adapter paired with a nvme m.2 is faster than sata. Doing that would feel real snappy and have power. Ryzen is going thru too many changes and its definitely something im going to wait out. Ive still got a great phenom 2 x4 955 8gb ddr2 480gb sata ssd gtx 645. It's old but it runs great Bulldozer was a flop. wait till ryzen has comfortably hit its mark. I know haswell is thought of as old but it would be a mistake to completely decommission the machine. Its not like its a dual core opteron 1218he, or athlon xp 2400+. There are core 2 duo 6mb cache 3.3ghz wolfdales that still deserve to be used. I'm about to put one on my pc after i just tried one out on the home server. I'm loving it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVMe-PCIe-x4-x2-M-2-NGFF-SSD-to-PCIe-x1-converter-card-adapter-PCIe-x1-to-M-2EC/362705267025?_mwBanner=1&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F0%2F0%2F0%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F362705267025%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3Df80df70216c0a4e967b5fc3cffce9374&ul_noapp=true&pageci=5039cb06-ff98-46c2-bfde-4ae61e5c4d14
  12. You cannot have a bad video card and blame the cpu. Its not the 4790k that's slow. What speed is it running? Are you overclocking. What kind of cooler do you have. I prefer heat pipe radiators. There are still plenty of proud haswell i5 people pushing close 5ghz off a corsair closed loop liquid cooler.... 100 mbps boot hard drive is what's slow. Definitely keep your hard drives for storage since you need them. Windows 10 can install a program on any drive. Unlike 98, 2000, & xp. I cannot find in your op how much ram you have or how fast it goes. Like i said before. You should move on to nvme and if your board doesn't have that socket get a pcie adapter off Ebay or Amazon. If you can't pull that off go 1tb sata ssd. You should not keep so much on your boot drive. Im not a fan of limiting a boot to a partition size smaller than the drive. So i can definatly see your peril.... Ssd gets slower the more you put on it. So a 1 tb sata ssd maxed out can still bog to 220mbps. Expect to see 385 mbps to 550mbps on sata ssd. Nvme will give you 900mbps and up. 240gb is 40gb more gigs than 200, and all the time that's everything on storage. Cs:go is like 16 to 18gb. I'm coming off the 1tb boot bangwagon. If you can manage to put all your photos, music, videos, and downloads on a separate drive. You can get by just fine on a 240 to 256gb. If that really freaks you out go 480 to 512gb. You just don't need all that on a boot unless you are limited for physical size. I guess playing doom zandronum can get out of hand downloading all the custom wad files through doom explorer. If you assemble all the files needed to play duke nukem 3d on win10 its just 634mb. Half life is like 972mb. Elder scrolls 3 morrowind is pushing 2gb. If you do tamriel rebuilt thats gona take up alot of space. Ive only used 984gb of movies and music. That doom app data folder does get out of contol for me. What is the actual function? It sounds like an anime server.
