    XAIXER reacted to flibberdipper in Worth upgrading old laptop   
    If the laptop will work fine with just one GPU in it, I'd probably go that route instead. SLI is well and truly dead at this point so a second 980M wouldn't really do a whole hell of a lot.

    XAIXER reacted to Electronics Wizardy in What OS Could I Run on an Old Windows XP Computer?   
    What motherboard and socket does it have? You can probably run windows 7 on it.
    most lightweight distros will work, try debian with lxde, its also probably 32bit only.

    XAIXER reacted to Jurrunio in Motherboard VRM Tier List v2 (currently AMD only)   
    Credit to:@VegetableStu @GoldenLag @LukeSavenije
    The following list is based on facts, ranked on power delivery and known problems. The list will include boards that support CPU overclocking available at retail from different brands.
    There are still differences in performance among boards of the same tier. As a result, those that barely made it into that tier will be in orange while those that are better than others in the same tier are in blue. Unless specified, boards sharing the same name and chipset in different form factors are ranked the same.
    For advanced users: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smj5dh97n32wJqm5dkdDcQt8ID7vH52-lKzaaXUUQx8/edit?usp=sharing
    All current draw figures are based on Prime95 small FFT with AVX unless otherwise specified, in other words the worst case scenario.
    Only often recommended sku of CPUs in the same generation and core/thread count configuration is named, others share the same rating.
    Zen scales down frequency and voltage according to EDC (current limit) and TDC (thermal limit) settings of the motherboard so in theory you won’t cook the VRM of any board at stock, you just lose frequency.
    For tier A and above, due to lack of feasible CPUs that allow testing of the boards at higher current ratings, there are some level on guessing in terms of how much more power the VRM can take.
    AM4 (Athlon, Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9)
    B550 Speculation: If you cant find the board above, then it should be here. If it's already up there, then ignore what it's placed here
    TR4 (Ryzen Threadripper 1xxx and 2xxx) X399
    sTRX4 (Ryzen Threadripper 3xxx) TRX40 (largely guessing since there's little data)
    Legacy list thread: Those looking to dive into Intel's outdated process node and recycled (for many times) architecture please refer to the old list

    XAIXER reacted to Triboal in Motherboard VRM Tier List v2 (currently AMD only)   
    I still don't understand how the X570 Aorus Master is classified on the same tier as the Phantom Gaming X and Taichi when sources like HardwareUnboxed have shown the Aorus Master to have superior VRM's including reaching higher clocks and cooler VRMs and PCB compared to both the Taichi and Phantom Gaming X - and very similar stats to the C8H.
    This is no criticism, just want to understand that's all.

    I am FINALLY done with my sleeper, Grandma. Not the Best specs, but I'm going AMD soon anyways. This was what she looked like before
    Cable management was terrible.  I Got some spray paint and some zip-ties and painted it and cable managed.
    The case is from a Dell Demention 2400, and it was my great grandparents, hence the name. 
    Cpu: Core i5-7400 4c/4t @3Ghz GPU: XFX Radeon RX480 4GB RAM: 16 GB of XPG Adata 2800MHz clocked at 2400MHz due to motherboard restrictions Motherboard: MSI B250M Bazooka  PSU: Thermaltake 600W 80+ Smart (I know) Storage 128 GB Samgsung 470 SSD (Boot) 1 TB WD Blue HDD (Main game storage) 500GB WD HDD (Old game ISO ripps [yes i own them]) Disc drive: whatever one is in a Dell Vostro 200 There isnt much more to say than that I LOVE how good this looks. This took so much time and effort to get cable managed, as there isn't a back panel. I had to route everything through the second disc drive bay, through the front panel, and floppy bay, just to cable manage, but i like how it looks.

    Looks pretty good. Starting in Jan, you can update the BIOS on that board for Ryzen 5000 support, so you can always upgrade if needed.

    The parts you have should be compatible.
    Personally I'd spend less on the motherboard and memory and more on the GPU, but that's up to you.
