  1. When I play games like Portal and Minecraft, CPU usage spikes at 10-20%
  2. Really? So RTX cards will really not embarrass my Xeon from 2010? Damn, that's cool. I was nervous that if I replace my Quadros from 2007 and replace it with an RTX card my frames will stay the same.
  3. Here are my specs- OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard System Model HP Z800 Workstation System Type x64-based PC System SKU FF825AV Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ 2.93GHz, 2927 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ 2.93GHz, 2930 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard BaseBoard Product 0AECh BaseBoard Version D Platform Role Workstation Secure Boot State Unsupported PCR7 Configuration Binding Not Possible Windows Directory C:\WINDOWS System Directory C:\WINDOWS\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "10.0.18362.752" Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 48.0 GB Total Physical Memory 48.0 GB Available Physical Memory 43.3 GB Total Virtual Memory 55.0 GB Available Virtual Memory 50.4 GB Page File Space 7.00 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys Kernel DMA Protection Off Virtualization-based security Not enabled Device Encryption Support Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: TPM is not usable, PCR7 binding is not supported, Hardware Security Test Interface failed and device is not Modern Standby, Un-allowed DMA capable bus/device(s) detected, TPM is not usable Hyper-V - VM Monitor Mode Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Second Level Address Translation Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Virtualization Enabled in Firmware Yes Hyper-V - Data Execution Protection Yes I'm using an older CPU, the Xeon x5670 and I'm wondering whether it is worth it to buy an RTX 2060 and up, or just buy an older GTX card instad. I plan on gaming with this. (Budget is around 300-700 CAD) I would not really like to change the CPU/buy another PC, since that is over my budget. I use PCIe x16 2.0 slots in my motherboard. I have a 800 WATT power supply. Alright, thanks.
  4. I have that in mind ofc, but its not than much powerful plus its fifty bucks more and I can't rlly work so it's harder to get money for me
  5. Alright, this has helped me a lot. The Radeon 5600XT is around 400 bucks in my area, and the 1660 super is 350, I'll consider getting the 1660 super, thanks!
  6. Isn't it PCI 4.0? I only have PCI 2.0 Edit-And it won't and bottlenecked by the CPU?
  7. Don't have a phone/camera near by, is it ok if I link a video with some angles instead?
  8. And that's the best reasonable GPU on the market that I can get for the PC?
  9. Ok, so it has those ancient power connecters (not sure the name. maybe IDE power adapters) and 2 six pin. I can buy additional cables to convert to the newer adapters
  10. External power connecters? I am not going to open the case as it is very hard to do (a lot of screws, dust etc). Is there anyway to check it without physically going inside the case?
  11. Alright, my father finally lent me a desktop that I can actually customize instead of using an old Toshiba laptop. However, it is a HP z800, running 2 Xeon 6 core X5670 CPUs (max turbo 3.33 ghz), 48 Gigs of ram (DDR3, 1333 mz), 1100 watt power supply. The GPUs are 2 Nvidia Quadro NVS 290s, very old graphics cards that I would like to remove and put in something different. I want to select and purchase a GPU that fits with my system (that doesn't bottle neck it too much) and gets me a good amount of FPS in most games (Minecraft, Tomb Raider games, other popular steam games). My budget is 500-600 Canadian dollars. I would personally not like to upgrade and buy a full new computer, as that would be very expensive for a teenager like me. More specs will be included below: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard System Model HP Z800 Workstation System Type x64-based PC System SKU FF825AV Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ 2.93GHz, 2927 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ 2.93GHz, 2930 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Hewlett-Packard 786G5 v03.60, 2016-02-24 SMBIOS Version 2.6 Embedded Controller Version 255.255 BIOS Mode Legacy BaseBoard Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard BaseBoard Product 0AECh BaseBoard Version D Platform Role Workstation Secure Boot State Unsupported PCR7 Configuration Binding Not Possible Windows Directory C:\WINDOWS System Directory C:\WINDOWS\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "10.0.18362.752" Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 48.0 GB Total Physical Memory 48.0 GB Available Physical Memory 43.3 GB Total Virtual Memory 55.0 GB Available Virtual Memory 50.4 GB Page File Space 7.00 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys Kernel DMA Protection Off Virtualization-based security Not enabled Device Encryption Support Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: TPM is not usable, PCR7 binding is not supported, Hardware Security Test Interface failed and device is not Modern Standby, Un-allowed DMA capable bus/device(s) detected, TPM is not usable Hyper-V - VM Monitor Mode Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Second Level Address Translation Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Virtualization Enabled in Firmware Yes Hyper-V - Data Execution Protection Yes Apologies if I get something wrong, I am very new to computers and learning more about them everyday. Below is the PDF with even more specs for the z800, such as PCI ports and more. 13278_na.pdf
