  1. Budget (including currency): $60 USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Kids browser based school work, and some fairly basic Unity coding. Youtube at 720p is fine in this case. Linux is fine. These will not be used for gaming. Other details: I'd prefer some sort of thin client sized device that's low power. Would a 4GB RPi4 work fine for this? My kids already have gaming pcs in their rooms, but I really want to create a dedicated workspace for them with separate PC's. Even an old laptop would be fine with me, I j
  2. Have you tried with the "faulty" gpu only? What wattage psu do you have? Edit- sorry the pics didn't load for me the first time. Idk how reasonable it would be for you to test the second card in the first pcie slot.
  3. I say mosfets... H1R0 things. PSU phase things? What are these called?
  4. Lenovo 330s with ryzen 5 2500u. Won't power on, and is not charging. Charging indicator light not on. Tested the charger and it's correctly reading 20~v, so I think I can rule that out. I did all the typical troubleshooting. Lenovo button does nothing. Remove battery and cmos then power drain does nothing. Removed one at a time- ram, wifi card, ssd, peripheral, speakers, display. Nothing. I have a multimeter, but admittedly going in this deep is out of my wheelhouse. From what I can tell, there's a short somewhere (please correct me if I'm
  5. TechYesCity buys AliExpress Xeons all the time. They're fine. Costa Rica is where it was manufactured. Also, yes, that CPU is supported by your motherboard.
  6. I also have an Intel/NVidia laptop (i5 7300hq and 1050ti) that runs most ps2 games flawlessly. The issues come up when software rendering is required (Ratchet and Clank; Gran Turismo 4) and the lower clock speed cant keep up with the demand. So, with the 2200G- I didn't over clock it, or the RAM (only DDR4 2400) I'm sure that wasn't doing me any flavors with my testing, though my software rendering runs were fine at native resolution. Yeah... Witcher 3 and Gears 5 didn't take too well to 2c/4t setup when it was stock, but stutter was eliminated at 4.9GHz. The Ryzen need
  7. So, update. The i3 runs my emulators significantly better than the 2200g except for ps2, which is identical performance at 1080p. 4k may be different, but I'm using a 1050 ti for testing, so thats out of reach until I get a 1060/1070. The same is true for native PC games, though the frames seem more stable with the ryzen. I'll update when I get a new GPU.
  8. I vaguely remember this issue from years ago. I never found a permanent fix to run a 750... We were able to get it working with some hoop jumping until the system was rebooted. We ended using an hd 7750 somehow with no issues. I don't know if it's the legacy issues or if it was PSU related. I'll see if my friend remembers what the problem was.
  9. I figured. I planned to do that anyway... I just don't have a GPU available to test with. (Save a 1 gb hd 7770 I have as a decorative item.) I might just be able to get a baseline though. Thanks for the insight.
  10. I'm wanting to make a dedicated emulation rig, and have both an i3 7350k and a ryzen 3 2200g with mobos (B350 and Z270) in storage. What would be better for emulation? The i3 OCs to 5 GHz, but I'm not sure what the Ryzen is capable of. I'm scouting for a cheap GTX 1060 right now to go with the build, so the iGPUs are irrelevant for me. Up-res PS2 and 3DS are my high priorities. Are emulators still single-thread heavy, or have they all moved to multi-thread back ends? Would the straight quad-core zen be a better option now? Thanks for the help!
  11. Refurbished processors are fine most of the time. The rest of the PC will waste away while the CPU remains the only working part. Xeons especially.
  12. Personally, I'd just see how that runs first with the i3. You can go up to i7-3770 with that, but the i5-3470 would pair better with your GPU. Extra 4 GB ram would help too. Also- I'm not sure on the heatsink, since I'm not positive what the stock one is rated for. The i5/i7 is higher wattage, so it may need something beefier. If all else fails, try it out and watch your temps.
  13. GTA 5 stutters quite a bit on the g4400. They should pair nicely for most other titles though. I'd seriously recommend 4th gen i3 at least.
  14. Last note, that Athlon 250 setup you have... it's going to choke on modern titles. My wife was using one up until 2014 or so, but when she shifted away from L4D2 to playing Fallout 4 and Tomb Raider, we moved to the i3 system.
