  1. Sounds like a CPU or RAM bottleneck. What processor do you have & how much RAM?
  2. Do you really need that kind of CPU power? What do you intend on doing besides gaming? It's multiple times the performance of your current one. The fastest 8 core CPU only to run games seems like a waste. I don't believe we will have a new Nvidia GPU gen before Q2. And with Nvidia at launch you rarely get more performance for the same money anyway. I wouldn't wait. For the SSD, it depends for crucial RAID 0 is for you. It you work on very critical projects and never back-up, then I guess it makes sense... If you are a pretty normal user, than no, go for just one drive.
  3. It depends on the price difference. If it happens to be only 20 USD, I'd say go for the Ti - it's at 1080p on average 5% more powerful. If it's 40, don't, the value of the Super would be superior.
  4. I know but maybe Sapphire uses specific parts on their cards that don't play nice with my PSU, and components/PCB-configurations used by other manufacturers have a higher chance of being different than Sapphire's from one 5700 XT model to another.
  5. Greetings, So I got the Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse. When gaming, half of the time, I could hear various tones of coil whine over the GPU fan noise (rest of the system is silent), which is very unpleasant/irritating to me. I sent it back, and now I'm wondering if going with another brand instead of another same-GPU-based product from Sapphire (the Nitro) would increases the odds of this not happening again. I want a very quiet card, so besides the Nitro the 2 other candidates would be the Powercolor Red Devil & Asus Strix - whichever one is cheaper at the time of purchase. Is the Sapphire Nitro just as good as an option with no more coil whine risk with my configuration that the others?

  6. If only the semi-passive fan wasn't constantly turning on and off when there isn't a heavy load... and it makes a very annoying noise when doing so. I'm pretty sure this would solve the issue, but I would like to avoid that because I would have to spend 2h setting everything up again
  7. Greetings, I have the 2400G, and changed my motherboard from the Asrock AB350 Gaming-ITX to the Asrock B450 Gaming-ITX without an OS (Windows 10 64 bits) re-install, considering how almost identical these MBs are. I installed the drivers of the new MB, and un- (+DDU) and re-installed the Radeon driver However, since this hardware change, the screen doesn't detect a signal and so turns off after benchmark sequences or after leaving any game. Basically, as soon as the screen doesn't receive a signal for a second. When I press the monitor's power button, it then instantly shows what it is supposed to (benchmark score or desktop), as if nothing occurred. It would be a hassle to reinstall the OS, given how much optimization work I did to make it lighter. Does someone have an idea abt what I could try / what is causing this?

  8. Yes, it's Original Sin. Thank you We are tying to upgrade the OS to 18.04 but are having some difficulties. Will keep you posted.
  9. Greetings, A friend of mine would like to play the game Divinity on Ubuntu. Unfortunately I'm not familiar at all with that OS. The min. requirements according to the game is OpenGL4. When she looks at her system it says "OpenGL version 3.0 Mesa 18.0.0-rc4". She checked and believes 18.0.0 to be the lastest version (well this was 1,5 months ago). She doesn't have a dedicated GPU but has en Intel Haswell CPU. I checked and in theory the CPU supports OpenGL4.3. Sure the gaming performance might be bad, but it should at least launch, right? So it should be a driver/software issue, maybe despite her efforts, something is not up to date? We would be grateful for any tips.
  10. ... which we have known for about 6 months, right? I feel like this just confirms that there might not be a delay to Q3.
  11. It was the clock speeds. Stayed at 520 MHz even during gaming... I just reset things and it worked.
  12. Maybe it's a coincidence, but uninstalling the two latest Windows updates (from 11. January) and a reboot fixed it... for now. A reboot later and things are still looking good. So I disabled the Windows Update in the list of services
