  1. Try cleaning out your case, dust buildup could be thermal throttling your computer. Besides that, try booting into safe mode and see if you still get the same issue. What temperature is your cpu running at? use something like HWinfo to check. You can try wiggling the HDMI cable to see if it's dying on you too. Also run sfc /scannow in cmd prompt as an admin (google the cmd it'll tell you how to run it) and run any updates for windows. Those are a few troubleshooting steps that should point you in the right direction
  2. Honestly, if you don't mind the price difference, the intel i3 would be better than the Ryzen 1200.
  3. I'd also go with the Athlon 3000G, however i don't know the Egyptian electronics market, so I don't know what the price difference is there. It's something to look at, besides that make sure to go with an ssd too, that will make your computer run great for casual tasks.
  4. You might try looking through the Windows Event Viewer when it freezes again, it might have some insights on what's going on
  5. Ask around friends and family for any old computers they have lying around, i cut my teeth on an old Windows ME system my dad had lying around. Sometimes you learn best by taking it apart, putting it back together,and breaking the hell out of it.
  6. Have you tried the basic stuff yet? Namely like another guy said a clean install of gpu drivers with DDU off of GURU3D. If that doesn't fix it i'd look at any drivers that are more than a few years old and give them an update. Then update windows and run a sfc /scannow (checks for errors in windows) all I can think of off the top of my head
  7. For work (Credit Union) yes, we're trying to get away from it, but unless those sites update we have to stick with it. Mostly, remote deposit and our CUSO.
  8. Thanks! I've never heard of the brand before but after reading a bit online they seem to be pretty good, and they price is right too.
  9. Yep, went ahead and put the 650W g2 on there, I think I might stick with this build unless I find a better monitor in that price range.
  10. Oof, it was probably the G2 i've heard about then, thanks a ton for the link! I'll get that changed.
  11. Yeah, I just like having the option for upgradability in the future (i'd probably never use that much but the option is there) and i've heard good things about that specific unit. My computer before this had its power supply literally spark up and die while I was using it so i'd like this one to last me a good long while XD. But if you have other ideas on a smaller wattage that's fully modular and will last a long time i'm fully open to ideas!

I've used their 1050 ti's for 3d rending at my last IT job (a dental place) and they've lasted 2 years so far, but I don't know about this generation of cards.
  13. What about ram speeds, I know Ryzen likes fast ram, would this motherboard be able to support 3200 mhz+?
  14. Good to know! I wasn't aware of this, that should lower the price a bit and let me pick up some more storage.
  15. Updating X570 itself shouldent be an issue since I already have a compatible processor. My understanding was that if i wanted to update B450 and X470 i would need a processor that worked out of the box with those chipsets. Also, is there any noticeable bump in performance if i go with a 2080 (non Super) when compared to the 2070 Super? Thanks for your response!
