  1. Yeah, I'll go with a 600 Watt be quiet! Pure Power 11 CM. I think it makes the most sense in my situation to just upgrade my PSU to something better when I upgrade my PC later in some years.
  2. @jonnyGURU What would be the cheapest PSU you could actually recommend in my case? As stated above, I can save up a bit. I'd love to go full-modular but I guess that's not an option isn't it?
  3. Thank you for the help. The Issue is the old case, not the new one. No way to get money back. Sorry if I didn't specified that enough. I think I'll just use the PC with the 120GB SSD until I saved up a bit. At least my internet connection is fast enough to download games when I need them.
  4. I was changing the case today and while doing so it broke. I need the SATA Power connectors for running my HDDs.
  5. Hey guys, I was changing my case today and while doing so 3 of my 4 SATA Power connectors broke. The PSU was pretty old and the connectors were under a continous pressure over the years. That's why I planned to change to a new case. But now I have to get a new PSU first. The Corsair VS650 is right at the maximum of my budget to spend. I am planning to upgrade to a Ryzen 5 5600X with a RTX 3070 or similar in around 2 to 3 years. Do you think the VS650 will be enough? It would be great to save a few bucks and don't have to spend money for a power supply 2 years la
  6. It seems like the GPU is getting clocked down quite agressively. If i put the CPU Threads somewehere from 7 to 4, the clock of the GPU is always at ~ 200 MHz. The only difference in GPU clock is when I put the CPU threads to 3 or less. The Clock of the GPU is at ~ 1100 MHz when the CPU is idling so I think the best way is to just run 7 Threads + GPU.
  7. Thank you guys for all the quick answers. I'll try to find the sweet spot to let the CPU and GPU do as much work as possible
  8. Nvidia recommends using a 650W PSU so I'd recommend you buy a different one. It may be able to pull the weight, but if you buy a factory overclocked 3070 it may be not enough. It also gives you more headroom to overclock the CPU in the future. I don't know how tight your budget is, but maybe you should go for a even stronger PSU just in case you want to upgrade something. I don't have a single PSU to recommend, just don't buy a too-good-to-be-true china PSU. I personally am really satisfied with my Corsair TX650M. It runs like a champ for ~6 years now. But the choice is pretty much person
  9. Sup, I am currently letting my laptop fold almost 24/7. I wonder If I should let my integrated GPU fold as well since it impacts my CPU. The CPU and GPU specs are: Ryzen 5 2500U 4 Cores/8 Threads with an integrated Vega 8. Due to thermal and power limitation my CPU will run at 1.9 to 2 GHz when folding only with the CPU. It won't boost due to thermal limitations. When I config my GPU to fold as well, the clocks on the CPU will go down to ~ 1.6 GHz because of power limitations. I've seen many people say to let a thread not actively fold when using the GPU so I configured it
  10. Well, seems like I have to stick with h264ify for now. A friend just texted me to test it. It disables H.265 on YouTube. It's just like Edge now. Only 1080p but at least with Video decoding. If someone still knows how to get it running with 2 GPUs in my system i'd appreciate it because I normally watch 4K content and can't do it anymore
  11. By the way, I did a test with Microsoft Edge a few minutes ago. In Edge I seem to get my GPU properly utilized while watching YouTube but there is no option for 4K anymore. Is this because Edge doesn't support H.265 in the first place? I don't have much knowledge in that regard, so maybe I am wrong with that. I just reinstalled Chrome because I thought it could be a bug. Nothing changed.
  12. Hey guys i've got a question, I regularly watch youtube videos while gaming. I recently bought a used GTX 980 which apparently doesn't support H.265 video decoding. That's a bummer because some videos will almost kill my CPU without the assistance of my graphics card. I used a 1050Ti before and it worked nice, because since Pascal, there is H.265 video decoding support. Is there a way I can have both cards plugged in and let my 1050Ti decode the video while I game on my 980? It took me quite some time to even realize why my PC was so slow when watching 4K content suddenly
  13. Thank you so much for all the quick responses. I'll definitely buy it. Bechmarks look very promising as well. I think it will be a good match.
  14. It costs 110€ which is a good price already in Germany. He never overclocked it, it's cleaned and has new thermal paste
  15. Hey guys, a friend of mine would sell me his used GTX 980 for a good price. I currently have a 1050 Ti and I am not satisifed with the performance in newer titles anymore. I don't have much money to spend, so I'd like to stay with my i7-3770K. The processor is overclocked to 4GHz. Will there be a bottleneck? The most demanding games I play are CoD:Modern Warfare and Battlefield V. Thank you in advance guys. Stay healthy!
