    Saving up for a pc, currently stuck to an laptop. I buy used pc parts, build a pc and sell them for profit to save up for my gaming setup. Kinda like scrapyard wars but i sell them afterwards.

  1. hmm, been thinking, but can't get any other conclusion than that the video card is broken (bad shipping maybe?). Really Really check if you can get another GPU (confirmed working) for testing. doesnt need to be good, anything will do. Try boot with 1 stick of RAM (can be a culprit sometimes), or try use a CPU with an iGPU to confirm the rest of the system is working, to make sure you GPU is broken. when you are sure it's broken, RMA it, and get a working one. If the GPU is not broken...... well than im out of idea's.
  2. Nice, but is it tight in the slot? all the way?
  3. You're basically screwed. Try selling it on reddit might get most of the money back. Ebay is complete shit especially in the middle east and africa. try /rhardwaresales tho.
  4. The PSU is good enough (what brand tho? if its a random chinese i wouldn't trust it lol). Since the card is new, im going to assume it works. most of the times BIOS updates do magic, might try that? (with a different card ofc) are you sure its tight in the PCIe slot?
  5. Basically this yeah, curved screens require different solutions for backlight, which are more flexible, but of lower quality i guess. The spreading of the light looks good so nothings broken i guess.
  6. It does when im right, a 6 pin. At least... my RX 570 uses one and my RX 480 too, soo i guessed the RX 580 needed one too.
  7. @gloop Ah that explains your comment. Sadly, i think the Phanteks P300 looks too "curvy" and i preffer the straight lines from the H510. I didn't know about the temps, which i DO freak about. Do you have any more recomendations? Would spending extra money on a good cooler help?
  8. 1. Do you know the card works? are there fans spinning? Does you GPU have a LED as well? what color is it? 2. Are you sure your GPU is getting enough power? (Strong enough PSU / All cables plugged in)
  9. LOL The H510 White looks gorgeous IMO beautiful and symplistic. Can you tell what makes you think its ugly? edit: I checked ur account and your system uses the NZXT H510 as well, so what are you talking about?
  10. Im going to be using 3000 Mhz, so that will be fine i guess.
  11. If i upgrade to a ryzen 7 or 9, do you recommend a better motherboard? Good to know lol, im always scared of missing something.
  12. Budget (including currency): 650 Euro for now. Country: Netherlands Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: CS:GO @ 144 fps / World of Tanks / Hearts of Iron 4 / All total war games Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 1080p monitor, prefer to play at 144 fps, 60 fps is fine. preferably settings turned up to at least medium. I currently already have this build, and was wondering, if this will suit my needs, if im missing something and if could improve it?

  13. Totally agree on this one; Your cheap-ass PSU is going to give up on you fast, and if it ain’t the PSU it’s the dirt cheap OEM board in there. £300 can get you quite a good 2hand gaming system with a “gaming” motherboard, trustworthy PSU and upgrade options. But I’m just repeating the other guy. If you do go with just a GPU upgrade; 1030 sucks and has performance worse than a 750 ti. Since you’re buying used, a used 1650 is overpriced atm in my experience, so a 1050 ti low profile is the best you can get, if you want something lower priced look for a 750 ti low profile.
