  1. Try flashing the original bios or flash the card into a similar RX 580.
  2. Have you actually switched your sound output device in Windows?
  3. Everyrthing is fine there. The low end CPU is meant to run 100% in such a game, lowering the CPU usage would result with diminished performance. The only real option for you would be to upgrade the platform.
  4. Stop using it until you replace the bad capacitor(s). By using it you're risking a total failure and that might become an expensive repair. As it stands now, it's a cheap repair. If you're versed with a soldering iron and have some capacitors, you might be able to repair it yourself.
  5. With the Ryzen, there's an upgrade path. With the i7 there isn't.
  6. More info on the configuration?
  7. Ryzen 5 3600 / 7 3700X 16GB DDR4 3200 to 3600 MSI Tomahawk (max) B450 RX 5700 / RTX 2060 Super A tier A+, A or B PSU That would be my choice for 1080p 144Hz or 1440p 60. RX 5700 XT or 2070 (Super) for 1440p 144Hz. You have enough budget for a decent PC + and a 1440p 144Hz monitor. Just look at my PC on my profile and upgrade the CPU (that I will do next year).
  8. The i7 6700K will severely bottleneck the RTX 2070 Super on 1080p. Choose one of two options - upgrade the platform or the monitor.
  9. Which motherboard does it have? Used Core 2 Quad CPU-s are extremely cheap, and DDR2 RAM also is. You could run a Q8400 and 8GB of RAM reletively cheap.
  10. The GPU should have a single HDMI and 3 DisplayPort connections.
  11. Have you, mistakenly, plugged the monitor into the motherboard instead of the GPU? The Ryzen 2600 does not have an integrated GPU so the display outputs of the motherboard have nothing to take picture from. For example, you might have a DVI monitor, but the GPU doesn't have DVI ports (only DisplayPort and HDMI). The MBO has DVI so you might have plugged it in.
  12. No real difference noticable by average users. You're fine.
  13. It might be also a good oportunity to upgrade the platform for something newer. Sell the CPU and buy a new board and CPU. It might not be the PSU if it works fine. Maybe take it to a repair shop/service and have it tested?
  14. Only by replacing the parts and testing. It's probably not something you cand etect by using your eyes, a magnifying glass and a lamp.
