  1. I found actual footage of LMG titling their videos https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJTMYadG/

      Gotta tickle there balls a little bit!

  2. Can we see a secrenshot? That could be including the cached data, or it could be that you've got a 32 bit OS installed.
  3. Haha, while that was cool, I really miss the video titles that actually told you what the video was about. When they have to title their videos in a super vague way, I know the video is going to be boring af. The subject isn't interesting so they've got to bait you into wondering what it's about.
  4. It depends what you're doing. Most likely though, a RAM upgrade. 8GB is enough to get by, but a lot of games will use a little more than that, and it's never good to run out of RAM. Also, RAM is the only thing that's remotely affordable right now.
  5. Okay well your 1080 Ti will run most of those games great with your hardware. If you just really want an upgrade, then your GPU is the weakest component in that equation. If you can get an RTX 3070 or an RX 6800 at MSRP, that would be a decent upgrade for the money. The RX 6800 performs better in normal games (all the ones you listed), but the RTX 3070 is better at anything with ray tracing (although neither can constantly achieve a stable 60fps with ray tracing on, so don't expect high frame rates). That being said, I'd suggest waiting. Right now is a very poor time to
  6. You still haven't told us what you're doing. For example, if you're gaming, a 5900X would be a terrible choice. It performs almost the same as a 5600X in games. And that doesn't perform much better than an 8700k. And unless you're gaming at a high refresh rate, a new CPU would be completely pointless. If you're gaming at 1080p though, a new GPU might be pointless, with the exception of hardware accelerated ray tracing. Spending a lot of money doesn't mean you'll get performance.
  7. I would upgrade to a 3070. The 3080 isn't as terrible a value as the 3090, but it's still pretty bad. There's not much of a performance difference either. Edit: I'm also making assumptions that you're gaming, but more information would be helpful.
  8. He's not getting a 3080. And a 3080 doesn't need a 1000W PSU. It's funny that you're making assumptions about my experience when you're new here. The OP does NOT need a 1000W power supply based on the specifications given.
  9. You don't need to take a photo of it. Just run it with HWMonitor for awhile and save the log information. That will show the highs and lows from the time you open it. Usually, when all cores are active, a CPU won't boost to its highest frequency. There are power limitations. Even when it's single threaded though, different things like thermals can limit speed. It's why we need to see the full picture.
  10. The 3080 does have an increased power draw, but it's still under 400W at max usage. The 3090 is a Titan class card (not for standard consumers). People really overestimate how much power things use. 750W is plenty for any consumer grade products you would pair with an RTX 3080, and definitely a 3070. The AMD cards are more efficient than Nvidia's latest monstrosity.
  11. Nobody in this age needs a 1000W PSU, unless they are running a server. Getting 750W is a little excessive, but it won't hurt anything.
  12. I need to see the whole thing. Not these little clips. After running HWMonitor with a game or whatever you use the computer for (not Prime95, it needs to be something real-world), save the monitoring data and upload it here.
  13. That's Task Manager, not HWMonitor. Task Manager is rarely very accurate.
  14. Based on what? That screenshot certainly doesn't suggest it maxes out at 2.6GHz. It just shows the current speed. A CPU doesn't always go at its highest speed. It fluctuates to not waste power. Check with HWMonitor to log the different speeds it goes to (preferably while playing a game or something), and also check your Power settings in Windows to make sure the speed isn't capped.
