  1. If you have a friend with a GPU...ask to borrow it and try it out. If using the spare GPU works and all is fine...then you have narrowed the problem down to being just the GPU and not another component in your system.
  2. It does not matter what people do for hobbies or career. Vigorous exercise should be a daily habit for all. People with disabilities can still find ways to vigorously challenge their bodies. Many of the best gamers are very physically fit.
  3. For the best price, you are going to have to really shop around. Used is your cheapest bet. I went from an i3 3220 to an i7 3770 a while back and the fps difference was huge. I got mine on craigslist locally for $90 CAD
  4. I agree with fasauceome. If the motherboard has a pciex16 port and the psu has the appropriate specs and power cord for the gpu...then it should work...just test it.
  5. The only test that was failed was a GPU stress test. So I am thinking that the GPU hardware is faulty. So, you might want to RMA/warranty the card.
  6. Could you share with us the brand/model of your display you use and what games you play the most? With that information, we can tell you what you need to upgrade. or example.... I have a 100hz freesync display, an i7 3770 and an rx 580. I play fortnite at 160fps lowest settings except for view distance with freesync, anti-lag and enhanced sync to get the smoothest, lag-free gaming experience. However, My gaming took a significant boost when I got a new mouse and keyboard. So sometimes peripherals are the right upgrade, sometimes you need a better monitor, s
  7. I would get the 1660ti then save up for a 120-144 hz display
  8. It should not create issues. If the sets are different speeds and cas timings...then all modules will defer to the speeds and timings of your slowest module. Ideally you want all of the modules to be the exact same brand model and speeds etc...
  9. What is your budget for a CPU anyhow? Is there any particular reason why you are opting for the Intel i3. I went from an Intel i3-->i5 and the performance increase was totally worth the extra $20 I spent.
  10. They are application files. I'm pretty sure that the games/applications wont load
  11. BUT...my os is not on my d: i already have my os on a separate ssd and dont want my os on the new 1tb ssd
  12. I have a 1TB HDD for my game library and a few other applications. I have another HDD for files and pictures. I want to migrate the HDD (D:) to a new SSD. Questions is... I have Acronis Disk Director that I have used to migrate an OS, but I have never used it to migrate a "D:" drive. When I do it...do I just complete the migration...then assign "D:" to the new SSD and remove the old HDD from the system like planned. Are there steps that I am missing in this plan of mine. Thanks for the replies
  13. I think any asetek cooler would work like a corsair H40. I believe off the top of my head. :)
  14. LOL...I remember when the FX 9590 got trolled for being too high of a TDP. Even the 125W FX 8350 was criticized for being power hungry. Now people are happy with 180-220W cpu's... Very funny to me. Another reason to never become a fanboy or criticize too harshly.
  15. That would GREATLY depend on what you want to do with the system. The i9 9900k is a super fast processor, but so are 2 2080's. However, not everything works well in NVLink. I have noticed that when it comes to benchmarks in 3dMark software that the best scores are with a i9 7980xe, but that is just so that they can get the best CPU score, which will inherently increase their combined score. One the other hand, a 7980xe would not be as good as a 9900k in games because of the better performance per core. Again, back to the "what do you want to do with the system" question. Depends.
