  1. Assuming your PSU has 2 6+2 pin connectors an RX 580 or RX 590 would be great. I think some RX 570's use a single power connector if you're limited there.
  2. I think it's probably legit, but can't be absoltuely 100% sure. It's your CPU that's massively holding back perfomance, and maybe partially the relatively slow RAM.
  3. If you really don't want to replace your entire system, how about a used GTX 1060 / RX 580? And then save up for an entire new system down the road? Anything much above that you'd not be able to get the most out of?
  4. With your budget plus selling your 1050 TI your best bet would probably be an RX 590 or GTX 1650 Super. They're not huge leaps in performance though, so it may be worth savings up for a little while and going for a GTX 1660 Super.
  5. I'd suggest just getting a DVI to HDMI adapter and taking the GT 730 out.
  6. You can find some pretty good deals on RX 580's and RX 590's at the minute for around £120 - £140.
  7. Yes, what Pikatchu says, a GTX 1650 Super or an RX 590 would be a great pairing. Whichever you can get for cheaper really.
  8. Just double checking but is the only thing that's changed your GPU or is this an entirely new build?
  9. Shouldn't be a problem. The signal is passed through the golden contacts on the side of the slot. There won't be a drop in performance, it's a part of the card that would either work, or it wouldn't. There's not really an inbetween.
  10. Probably the best "cheap" GPU to upgrade to would be the GTX 1650 Super for around $150. To get a CPU boost without a new motherboard it might be worth considering a used Intel i7 7700 which would just drop in, provided you've got your motherboards BIOS up to date.
  11. Would it be possible to get a careers forum going? It could be a good place for anyone trying to get into IT repair / support, networking or software to share tips and resources.
  12. Yes it will work fine, just plug the display into the GT 730. I think the Vega 8 graphics on the Ryzen 2200G are more powerful than the GT 730 though, so it would make more sense to use that.
  13. Should be absolutely fine. Your motherboard is running PCIe 2.0 but unless you go for a 2080S or 2080Ti it's not going to be holding your GPU back at all. EDIT: I thought you were wanting current gen RTX sorry. There probably will be a PCIe 2.0 bottleneck with a 3080 whenever they arrive, but you could have quite the wait. It should work no problem though, PCIe is backwards compatible.
  14. In that case, assuming the temps are all OK, I'd think it was more likely a driver issue, the 5700 series has had quite a few reports on driver issues. Does the freezing happen in all games or just one?
