  1. So what exactly is better about the parlit jetstream compared to the gigabyte i picked out? It's a little more affordable and also seems to run very very quiet, which of course gets me thinking - but i'm having a hard time comparing all those numbers
  2. Haha, that's right, i'm not doing any gpu intensive tasks while recording. But as even the lowest noise levels from spinning fans are quickly adding up (and some of the better studio microphones i'm using tend to pick up everything close) i'm always going with the lowest possible noise levels when picking parts. Although completely stopping the fans is definitely a nice option to have! I've heard good things about the EVGA cards but unfortunately those are the only ones available to me right now (because i've still got a 50 bucks gift card from the shop): https://www.mindfactory.de/Hardware/Grafikkarten+(VGA)/GeForce+RTX+fuer+Gaming/RTX+2070.html
  3. @Jurrunio After a day of researching reviews and doing lots of reading i think i have my heart set on the Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC 3x White. Main reason is that the length of the card fits my mAtx build, it seems to get quite good reviews and the be quiet power calculator tells me that i can keep my 450 watts Gold + PSU for now, as long as i don't upgrade my current cpu. Also with the 3 fans it seems to run quite silently compared to the two fan versions, which is crucial for my music recording work. https://www.gigabyte.com/de/Graphics-Card/GV-N207SGAMINGOC-WHITE-8GC#kf
  4. Thank you Jurrunio, that is actually really helpful! What do you think about the 2070 Super? Some of those cards are just slightly above my 500€ limit and offer quite a plus in performance compared to the 2060 Super (from what i've read). Usually I upgdrade my rig every 4 to 6 years, so i'm already planning for a card that brings as much headroom as i can possibly afford.
  5. Switched to Filmora just recently since I don't edit often enough to pay for Premiere Pro anymore. Blackie: I was thinking about the 2060 super as well but since i'd like the option to use the card with some VR Headset in the future (mostly for flight-sim fun) I guessed it might be better to reach for as much power as i can possibly afford.
  6. Ah, sorry I forgot. I currently only play in 1080p but i'm considering maybe upgrading my monitors to WQHD in the future.
  7. Hi everyone, with Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC, i figured it may finally be time to start upgrading my rig. I built this computer in 2014 and it's been running fine so far, but i'm slowly starting to notice it running out of power here and there. Since i don't have enough money to upgrade the whole thing at once, I'd like to upgrade my graphics card first and upgrade the CPU/Mainboard/Ram section later on in 2020. My current specs are: - Intel Xeon E3-1231v3 4x3,4 GHz, Socket 1150 - Asus H97M-Plus Mainboard - 24 GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 DIMM - 1TB Samsung 970 Evo M.2 Drive - 2 TB Samsung 860 Evo SSD Drive - 480 Watts be quiet! Straight Power E9 CM Modular 80+ Gold Power Supply - 3GB Asus Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II Graphics Card I do realize that a new graphics card will be heavily bottlenecked by the older cpu/mainboard section but I'd rather upgrade the gpu now because i noticed that this is the component that is driven to it's limits way before the cpu when gaming or editing videos. I'm not a heavy gamer but i like to occasionally check out new titles and also do some video editing here and there (no 4k). Besides that the system is mainly used as a browsing / media machine and (most importantly) for music production. I'm currently running a 1080p dual monitor setup. Here's what i'd like to do in the future: - Maybe upgrade to a higher resolution dual monitor setup - Fiddle around with VR - Game I was thinking maybe an RTX 2070 could be what i'm looking for. What would you guys recommend? My price point is roundabout 400€ to maybe 500€ (440 to 550 USD). Also what's really important to me is that the card is as silent as possible (because of the music production tasks) and - can my 480 Watts 80+ Gold Power Supply even handle a newer card or do i need to calculate a new one into the whole search? Thank you guys for your help! Cheers, FreakyAlleyCat
  8. Guys, I found a solution to this. I'll post the fix here, in case anyone encounters this thread searching for a solution: I replaced the cmos battery on my mainboard. It seems like the battery was empty, so the mainboard kept forgetting all the changes made to the bios whenever i switched off the power socket overnight. In my case the important changes made to the bios were setting the Sata 5&6 lanes to "M.2" and the boot order, wich also explains why i could always boot to the correct drive from bios. So new battery, fix bios settings, problem gone, awesome!
  9. Hi everyone, i'm running into a weird problem: I recently upgraded my boot drive to a Samsung 970 Evo M.2 NVMe 1 TB SSD. Besides that there's a Samsung 860 Evo SSD connected via Sata inside the system. Most of the time - yet not always - I get this screen when I first boot up my machine in the morning. It stays like that until I enter the Bios: So i press F1 and enter the Bios only to find all of my drives detected perfectly fine: When I leave the Bios without making any changes, the machine will boot up to my M.2 Drive without a problem. Also the problem never occurs when doing a restart from Windows. The Bios and SSD Firmware is up to date. I have no idea what could be the issue. Can anybody help me on this one?
