  1. pcpartpicker.com It serves as a wattage calculator. Usually you want about an extra 100 watts after you've inputted your system specs into it that way you have some leg room for upgradability or overclocking and just for safe measures. Also to answer your question, yes.
  2. Maybe if it was a more substantial overclock. I know clock speed in ram is pretty influential with AMD chips but with such a small overclock not really. If your really determined to overclock though, you could decrease your cpu voltage or clock and see if that works first.
  3. Honestly dude it isn't necessary to touch your speed on your dram. It's already fine but you could try lowering the clock speed on your oc'ed processor. Did you up the voltage at all or did it come like that? If it came like that then it's already been overclocked anyways from the factory.
  4. It isn't your psu, 500 watts is enough for what you got probably. What is your ram voltages? Your ram might have been already oc'ed from the factory. I know Corsair Vengeance LPX ram sometimes is.
  5. It probably will be usable. You can mix and match ram, different clock speeds, brands whatever but it isn't advisable and it will run at the lower speed of whichever stick of course. Give it a shot.
  6. This is a great cpu for older titles. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BFG-Tech-nVidia-Geforce-GTX-280-1-GB-DDR3-Video-Card-Cheap-Read/153774314036?hash=item23cda9d234:g:YcwAAOSwNw1eAykK You could also grab a 9800 gt 512mb on ebay for pretty cheap nowadays, maybe cheaper but I'm not sure on that. Regardlessly, the graphical fidelity of both of those cards still hold true nowadays. I know that the 9800 gt puts out less performance however so I think I would go for the 280.
  7. Why would the b450 need a bios flash. Also the 3700x is a great price to performance cpu. Why do you say you don't need it? What are you aiming for? What do you do on your computer. If you think you could benefit from it then get it. If you think no, then don't get it and stick with what you got which is already an all around fine pc.
  8. I mean the title is pretty self explanatory. And if the answer is yes, how would I do such a thing.
