  1. Or get a regular Fury (X) on the cheap. Or as others said: wait for Vega.
  2. Oh whoops, meant Seasonic.
  3. That's the sound of a PSU going bad. I'd probably not turn the system on until there's a quality PSU in there, like an 800W Corsair or Seasonic unit. edit for a while it said Seagate instead of Seasonic. derp
  4. XFX (and many others) have a feature where the fans just stop blowing air when the card's idling (or under light load up to 65 ºC or so) to make it quieter. Those high idle temps are perfectly fine.
  5. Great. Now make MXM modules for the full desktop GPUs (RX460/470/480, GTX series) and make them readily available at or near the standard desktop card's price. Then we're talking. Cooling these MXM GPUs will be very interesting.
  6. That's to the Ti. Also, it has a single slot version available from XFX, if that's a necessity.
  7. There's a chance an nVidia driver is giving you issues. Use DDU to uninstall all display drivers and reinstall the AMD ones.
  8. Ryzen (hopefully) to the rescue!
  9. If you plan to build it out over the course of this year, there's really no way of knowing what GPU and CPU will be a good option. nVidia has Pascal refresh and a possible 1080Ti and AMD is coming out with an entirely new arch on both the CPU (Ryzen) and GPU (Vega) side of the market. Who knows what does best in the price/performance range.
  10. The Power Color model is known for having sub-par VRM (the power delivery system) so I wouldn't recommend it. That's a stock blower cooler. It's loud as balls and doesn't unlock the full potential of an RX480. That PCB is also a reference design. It's ok, but nothing more than that. I recommend this: http://m.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/8GB-XFX-Radeon-RX-480-GTR-Aktiv-PCIe-3-0-x16--Retail-_1116005.html It's €30 more than the € 250 you get for your 970 but it's so worth it. 1450 MHz should be easy for this card.
  11. FreeSync monitor with about 250 European moneys. 8GB RX480. If you can have some more money saved up an XFX RX480 GTR is the top card to get. Otherwise there's the XFX RX480 RS or an MSI card.
  12. Good retro-looking silver cases with silver insides. There's this one high-end all-aluminium case that was like super high-end back in the day but I can't find it for the life of me. Some Cooler Master thing I think. edit yeah, the Cooler Master ATC lineup look super clean. No frills, or things, oh no. Just super styling with a clean front and all aluminium design. I want that to return. I mean look at it. The ATC 110. Even to this day these beauties go for like $230+. And there was one with a side panel window as well. Black is boring. Bring back the silver!
  13. First PC was an old Gateway from the 1998 era with some Pentium. Then we got a Dell with a Pentium D 820, 2GB of RAM and a nVidia 6800 "Family edition", then that thing died and now it has a GT220.
  14. More likely it went over the 75W power restriction of the PCIe slot and AMD didn't want to put a 6-pin plug on their lower performance card.
  15. That CPU still kicks some ass. Get 4GB DDR3 DIMMs for a total of 12GB and get something like an XFX RX480 GTR. You'd be set for another 3-4 years.
