  1. Hi all, I know it could sound like having your cake and eating it but as I'm planning to rebuild my retrogaming PC from scratch, I'm looking for a very particular kind of case. Some parts I'll want to use will be a microATX Socket775 mainboard, a GeForce 6600GT, SSD/HDD for storage and definitely a 5.25" optical drive, a 3.5" floppy / memory card drive and a PCI sound card. Powering all of this I'll have a non modular "modern" power supply (specifically a Thermaltake Hamburg 530W 80+ white). I'm currentely using a very cheap Tacens Anima AC4 case: not *that* bad but it's q
  2. I wouldn't bother upgrading your PSU, a 750W 80+ GOLD should be plenty even for a high end GPU (the Ryzen 5 5600X is very efficient, things would change if you had, say, an i9 11900K IMHO). As for mainboards, I'd choose one with a B550 chipset, there's no real reason to go X570 unless you want to pursue extreme CPU / RAM / GPU overclocking. Graphics cards? Just wait. This is not the time to buy one, IF you can find one. Earlier today I saw a 3090 selling on eBay for over 3100€ and the auction hadn't even ended yet! This is I-N-S-A-N-E.
  3. R9 5950X + RX3080 should be a killer PC, go for it if you can afford it. At the moment Intel doesn't seem to have anything to compete with the 5950X.
  4. HI all, Some years ago I built my mother in law a small PC for everyday use and casual social gaming. Specs are as follows: - AMD APU A6-7400 - AsRock FM2A68M-HD+ - 4+4Gb DDR3 RAM (one KHX1866C10D3/4G + one 99U5474-036.A00LF) clocked at 1600 MT/s The system started having serious display related issues, so in the end I just swapped these components with a B450 / Athlon 3000G / 8Gb DDR4 combo and called it a day. Now I wanted to see if I could get the old ones to work and I rebuilt the system adding a Crucial BX500 128Gb SSD and nothing else. Installed late
  5. I've been playing Enderal for the last few days: not bad at all! Yeah, it's a Skyrim mod of course (textures, models, sounds and interface are all so familiar) but it seems to be quite large and complex, I think I will like it As for Daggerfall, I never really got into the clunky controls (maybe it's too "old style" for me ). Is Unity a "modern" remake, that is with modernized interface, or not?
  6. Yesterday I checked what was available in my country: GTX1050Ti at 300€. GTX1650 Super STARTING at well over 400€. GTX1660 at 600€+. RX5700 at over 1000€ Good luck with a 2070 level card...
  7. could it be an issue with hibernation? I personally always turn this feature off as I don't really need it (and it saves me some Gbs of space). Try to check if hibernation is active, maybe turning it off could solve the issue.
  8. I did start playing Kingdom Come Deliverance some time ago and it looks interesting. Anyways I stopped right after the tutorial as I was basically shredded to pieces every time I picked up any kind of fight... I'll have to come back to it. However for now it kinda looks more of a... I don't know, a life simulator?
  9. I guess my tastes have cornered me! Among my favorite games ever, I always mention Might And Magic VI-VII and the whole Piranha Bytes production of Gothic, Risen and Elex. I should also mention Fallout 3 & 4 and The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion & V:Skyrim. Here I am, desperately looking for alternatives. I'm looking for: - single player - first person (NO isometric view à-la Baldur's Gate) - (large) open world - 360° movement (NO grids!) - non linear Any suggestions? I'm aware of The Witcher series which I'll try to play as soon as possible, a
  10. Ouch. It looks really dead. I guess you could try baking, knowing you just can't do anything more to try and save the card. Should it work, you'd win the lottery! Should it fail, the card's already compromised anyways.
  11. It's very interesting to follow this thread, I'm no PSU expert so it all helps! My 2 cents about my particular case: - I'm running my PC with a 6 years old 530W 80+ white PSU: a theoretical max load 365W / 220v would be equal to 365 / 0.8 = 456W pulled from the wall. That's 91W wasted. - Keeping the exact same system but using a 500W 80+ gold PSU, I'd have 365 / 0.9 = 405W from the wall. That's 40W wasted. So I guess saving up to 51W simply by swapping the power supply isn't that bad, is it? In the end I gave in to the Seasonic Core GM, as nearly everyone I asked n
  12. I do have a 4Gb RX580 and I'm quite happy with it, at 1080p it still holds its own. I wouldn't dare playing Cyberpunk 2077 on it but still it's a solid card if you don't have "extreme" gaming in mind.
  13. I would try these steps: - check your RAM with Memtest86+, preferably all night long. I had many similar issues in the past and it turned out a faulty memory stick was to blame. - remove any CPU, RAM and GPU overclock. - if your RAM is good and you still have issues at stock speeds, it may very well be the PSU.
  14. Basically, for pure gaming the RX580 is hands down the better choice. A 1650 SUPER would be very close in performance but the base 1650 is definitely behind. On the other hand, If you are doing any kind of video editing the 1650 would be better. I would summarize as follows: - RX580 pros: faster in gaming - RX580 cons: less power efficient, older generation, less performance in content creation. - GTX1650 pros: newer, more power efficient, better suited for content creation - GTX1650 cons: slower in gaming
