  1. Most times you'll need a supported CPU to update the BIOS. AMD used to loan CPUs out, but I'm not sure if they still do that.
  2. What mouse do you have? Does it gave any sort of associated software?
  3. You'd be better off doing a clean install. Just backup your files first.
  4. Task Manager isn't known to be the most accurate tool there is. Just ignore it, as it obviously isn't being reported properly to the OS.
  5. That cable doesn't get great reviews, so I don't know if that will work for OP.
  6. If this is a new drive, I wouldn't worry too much. Also, don't worry about putting too much stress on the drive.
  7. If the price doesn't matter, you should look at a new system. The i5-2500 and i7-2600 made more sense a few years ago, but not now. A cheap Ryzen chip with a new motherboard and RAM is a lot better.
  8. You connected the monitor to the graphics card and not the motherboard right?
  9. That isn't my main machine anymore, I need to update my sig. I have an ASRock B450 Steel Legend now. Ok, thanks. I will look into those.
  10. I recently saw this build on YouTube, and wow, it looks great.


  11. I would keep the card, but only use it if you find that you need more display outputs. It won't perform anywhere near as well as the APU will.
  12. Hi everyone. I will soon be upgrading to a new SSD, and I am not sure what drive I should go with. I currently have a 1TB SATA SSD, but it is a few years old now. It has more than 62,000 TB of NAND writes according to CrystalDiskInfo, and it shows as being at 95% health. I'm not worried about this drive failing, but if it does I have a backup of all of my data. I would like the new drive to be NVMe based. Does anyone know of a decent drive that should last a while but doesn't cost too much? I'm thinking of a budget of around $50-70 USD. I don't need much capacity because the drive will only be
  13. For what? You're comparing an internal storage connection to USB.
  14. Definitely. If I see a phone that interests me (which isn't often, I don't upgrade my phone a lot), I head to GSMArena to see what I need to know.
