  1. Hey all, as the topic goes, im wondering if i should upgrade my PC, or just wait another year? With the recent launches of the the AMD 5000X CPUs and Nvidia 3000 GPUs, im a little tempted to upgrade once again. My pc is mainly used for gaming and streaming. i feel this is probably just because i want something new and shiny but if i were to upgrade, do i get a new CPU/Mobo combo or GPU? 10700k?? 5800X? RTX3070/80?? Parts list in signature
  2. Hello, Over the past 2 years, I have been buying parts during sales so I can save a buck here and there. These are the parts I ended up with; Intel i7 - 8700 Asus TUF H370 Pro Galax RTX 2070 Super EX 8GB G.Skills Ripjaws DDR4 Ram 2x8GB sticks cx750 PSU After gaming on it for the past 4 months, i feel like the rig is under performing. maybe im just paranoid after watching too many tech vids on YT. would any one be able to tell me if i mismatched any of the parts?
  3. yes,it's a mechanical drive, but its just so he has a PC to work with. already ordered the new SSD which would take about a week to arrive. Thanks everyone who replied and gave great guidance! i really appreciate the help. Guess tmr when i plug in the old HD, i'll know if i have a working PC or not.
  4. Noted with thanks! cool, that'll save me a some money. on a separate note, Im wondering, for the time being, will I be able to pull out the old drive from his laptop and stick in in the build as a Boot drive till I find the time to get the new drive? I think there's some photos in there my dad wants to back up and save. Its already got Win10 installed and im hoping to save a few bucks on a new windows install key.
  5. i will probably install Win10 on it. thanks. its just something for now.. i will upgrade it next year or so. i was thinking a 250GB or 500GB Samsung SSD should do the job.
  6. thanks for the reply, the PSU is a Coolermaster GX 550w Bronze.
  7. Budget (including currency): SGD$500-700? Country: Singapore Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Very light gaming(i think like Bluestacks for his mobile games), mostly web surfing, netflix, random MS office document editing Other details : planning to throw in my old 1050ti OC( optional if they want to use it as a media PC later on hooked up to a 4k TV. so my dads laptop is starting to fail on him, I was thinking of setting up a PC for him so he can surf the web and play his games. I'm Wondering if I should build a brand new PC or use parts from
  8. So i just bought a m.2 ssd but none of the screw that came with my MOBO fit in the standoffs. currently running a Asus TUF h370-pro. looks like there are standoffs pre installed and i've went thru every screw that came with my MOBO. an idea where i can buy the screws?
  9. hi keeping it short and simple, looking for; 144hz 1080p +/-24inch >10ms Usage: mainly gaming, but sometimes Netflix and Movies. GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Turbo will probably be running dual screen with my old 60hz 1080p monitor.

  11. So i recently started streaming on twitch again and im getting this weird fps lag spikes about 1-2hrs into the stream. I dont know whats the issue. At first i thought my cpu was over heating so i pulled off my cooler cleaned off the old thermal paste and appiled fresh artic mx-4 paste. I noticed some black residue on the frame supporting the cpu but didnt think much of it. My cpu temps dropped by a good 15-20degrees and averages 50-60degrees when playing diablo 3 and streaming with obs. I wonder if its my gpu but im running a 4gb card and i have all my graphic setting either tur
  12. Good day forumers My dads laptop hhd is starting to crash and he doesnt want to buy a new one as he uses it to only surf the net and some work.

  13. Good day forum, i'm hoping to find some help on my problem. i recently got my hands on a pair of Roccat Kave 5.1 analog headsets. when they arrived, i found out my mobo didnt have the required jacks to get the whole 5.1 experience(at this point i was already regretting not spending thr extra $30 to get the hyperX cloud 2's) so i went out and got a Asus Xonar DG Sound card. all seemed well till i tested the mic....
