  1. You might have a better playing experience with one card only for a while. Not really wanted but it is a option that can help very well in situations where a multiGPU setup could be a main factor in performance issues.
  2. Nah. Might not be brand related. My nephew has a Samsung and also had some stuff when he got to 4k. What windows and GPU you use? And you already tried different cable?
  3. Well that seems like an overall acceptable distance still, but you could have the bad luck of a poor cable. But think it is fine. Would mostly look to your TV if the cable is somewhat ruled out after trying another. Just checking but all cables are fitted properly and far enough into the connectors?
  4. What is your HDMI cable length and what is your GPU? Anyway it could be a wonky handshake issue when changing resolutions since bios screens and in between are not 4k, or the tv doesn't like the fast switching and misses the input. Have you connected the PC directly to the tv, or is there a receiver in between? Anyway sometimes a factory reset for a receiver or TV can help to see if it improves. A simple thing you could try is using (or borrow if you don't have another somewhere) a different HDMI cable and see if that makes any difference.
  5. Aye didn't see the post for his case yet.
  6. Jup, AIO's are not automatically also better then air unless you get into the higher end variants where you can actually make use of the better potential for a huge price increase. Have fun
  7. The Scythe Fuma is a good high end air cooler that has excellent noiselevels and control range.
  8. Any reputable brand works like MSI, EVGA and Asus. If you find customer support a huge thing, go with EVGA. MSI gaming variants are good, EVGA with the ACX3.0 cooler andAsus Strix are overall good cards. MSI is one of the most silent cards. I personally would go with the MSI or EVGA variants, because I find the cooler and more silent operations of these a good tradeoff for the marginally better clockspeeds the Strix reaches while beng louder. Imo the brand has less to do with the quality but the type of card more. What I mean is that certain types of cards of a brand have better co
  9. The 80 plus rating says nothing about quality btw, only possible efficiency. As others said always go for quality over higher wattage. In the PSU tier list they have made a ranking of tiers that gives you a good idea of how good the quality is. All from tier 3 and above is good to excellent. He also has some links in his sig to read more on how and why with PSU and you can also find some more info in the PC parts guide in my sig.
  10. There are converters. You sure your new mobo has no slot? So define what your new mobo is. Because now a days new mobo almost all have support for m.2 and NVME.
  11. The 10 series are better OCers in general + the fact that the 1050 is already a leap forward out of the box, make it a easy answer.
  12. Add Scythe Fuma if available, trading blows with the Noctua but for a way better price. So if available suggest that, but any of the other 3 mentioned also are excellent.
  13. If you are onboard GPU using it also uses up RAM, so yes a seperate GPU should free up RAM space in that case if you run into limits. For the RAM unless you have sticks out of a same kit (so a kit exists out of a number of RAM sticks, think 2 or 4) you never have 100% guarantee it works, but matching up ammounts, speeds and timings goes a long way for best compatability.
  14. Hehe, understand the 1080 vs 1080Ti if it was out. But what was the use of a 480 vs 1080?
