  1. Right that makes sense. I looked at a compatibility list and it seems like the only listed power supplies are 1000 and 1200 watt units. I guess this is logical but I never would have thought to research this seeing as pc hardware compatibility tends to be pretty forgiving usually.
  2. Fr? It has a 500 watt tdp. I knew that going in and figured that 800 should work if it was dedicated to the card alone. I don't recall the exact model but it is a Roswell 800 watt. Relatively new.
  3. Yeah to clarify the cables were not split or daisy chained. These were two separate cables from two separate 12v ports on the psu.
  4. I recently picked up a used r9 295x to mess around with but I ran into some issues when both 8 pin connectors on the card and the cables inserted into them melted. I was away from home and I had the card under a mining load. My dad messaged me that he smelled smoke and he had to shut the computer off. I checked my nice hash monitoring app which is on about a 5 minute delay. This told me that the card was running at about 68 degrees right up until it was shut off so it was not overheating. I had the card on a separate 800 watt power supply from what my system runs on so I cant rule it out as a
  5. Yeah I think it is just because my power is so cheap where I am. its like $0.05/KWh USD.
  6. From what I can tell given its power draw it costs me about 80 cents a day and it makes about $3. Given this I will probably sell it and find something more conventional on the used market. I've found that 1060s seem to make about as much anyway
  7. I recently picked up a used R9 295x2 in great condition and I have got it in my rig for mining. I got it on a dedicated 850 psu and I am running lolMiner on nicehash. I feel like I am not generating the kind of hash rate I was anticipating. Right now each gpu is doing about 10Mhash and together they make me about $3 a day. I was hoping I could get closer to twice that but I cant seem to get much out of it by overclocking. I have the memory at 1400Mhz stable and pushing it to 1600 causes one of the gpus to give up. If I cant get the numbers up I will probably sell it and get another 1070 which

  9. I just got an new laptop and its specs are about good enough to replace my desktop. The issue is that I want to keep my monitors and peripherals from the desktop setup. I need a docking station which has display port for my main monitor (144hz gsync), and a second port of any kind for my second monitor. There needs to be about 4 USB A for peripherals. The laptop does not have a lightening port so it will need to be compatible with usb C. The laptop also has a mini display port so that could go into the docking station if that is helpful. Any suggestions?
  10. I just got a new laptop recently and to give it a little performance test I figured I would play some war thunder on it. When I launched the game i got a warning saying that my settings were adjusted because I do not have enough video memory. This is strange because the laptop has a 6gb 1660ti which should be more than enough for the high preset. sure enough the game ran terribly. when I checked task manager It looked like the dedicated gpu was doing work but the memory was not being used. The integrated gpu memory was peaking out however. I have made sure the 1660 ti is the default preference
  11. Haha if only it was actually available here. I just came across this option as well https://www.costco.ca/hp-omen-15-en0010ca-gaming-laptop%2c-amd-ryzen-7-4800h.product.100673520.html Ryzen 7 and 1660ti, sans extra gamer look and it is pretty affordable too. I should mention that the A15 is only available in the 2060 version on amazon unless i jump to the 17 which I do not feel like doing.
  12. What is the opinion on this system? https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/asus-rog-zephyrus-g14-14-gaming-laptop-grey-amd-ryzen-7-4800hs-512gb-ssd-16gb-ram-gtx-1660ti-en/14575596 I feel like it strikes a good balance and checks a lot of boxes for me. Plus it is 14" which is convenient. Unfortunately it is nonexistent in Canada and is also super marked up compared to the models availability in the states. Are there more systems like this and the A15 which I should look into?
  13. yeah ive heard a bit about that. Any specific suggestions? It seems like a lot of systems are still on the Intel bandwagon.
