    I totally understand where you're coming from, but if my shitty antec with no 80+ and no actual model name can last over a decade, I guess it really depends on how lucky you are.

    I'd get a better power supply anyway the VS power supplies kinda suck.

    mxk got a reaction from kil4 in IS IT possible at all - Freesync and Geforce GTX 970 STRIX   
    It's a hardware issue because the 9 series cards don't have the newer port that 10 series cards do have. That's really the only reason that it can't do freesync. I wanted to try and do it when I still had a 960 but I couldn't for this reason.

    You don't really have any good parts at all to be honest, they're all pretty outdated and the power supply wasn't an ideal buy in the first place. 
     
    What's your budget? If you have enough it's probably a better idea to put together a new one and reuse the HDD.

    mxk reacted to Kilrah in Completely stumped   
    Tried other PCIe slots?
    Tried the RAM sticks individually already? 
     
     
    If yes next step is to take the CPU out, check both CPU and socket are clean and reseat. Might be that some of the pcie lane connections are flaky, once the driver is there and it goes to using the full width some connections are broken and it craps out.
     
    If that still doesn't do it... either mobo or CPU is likely toast.

    try setting the PCIE x16 slot to gen3 manually in bios if you have that setting available.... probably won't change anything but worth a try

    I initially read scam.co.uk... ?
     
    What monitor are you using? Do you have another at hand? Might just not support the resolution/frequency the PC decides to output to it.

    Consider a different cooler. The 212 evo is really old and not great compared to other air cooler choices on the market right now.

    if you don't need all that memory consider getting a little less of that and putting a little more into the gpu

    Umm. 
     
     
      No.  200$ for a 15 fps upgrade is nonsense. 
     
    Why would you even consider this? 
     
     
    I think you would need to at least invest around $300...

    if you really want to be sure ask to see what display ports the card has

    mxk reacted to 191x7 in slow ryzen build   
    How about you tell us more about your new system, like the CPU, the SSD/HDD, the PSU , etc?
    Also, did you do a clean Windows install or did you keep the old installation?

    mxk got a reaction from amdorintel in slow ryzen build   
    yeah jumballi is right. The 1060 3gb is pretty garbage and the 3gb of vram really bottlenecks its performance.

    rendering is gpu and not cpu in many cases, the 3gb of vram might not be enough for the video settings your running minecraft on

    mxk reacted to phongle123 in ryzen 3600 worth the upgrade from 1700x?   
    Take it like this. If the game you currently play is 100%ing your GPU Usage then upgrading CPU will not help (i.e. multi-threaded game) even if your CPU is at like 20% usage. Not all multi-threaded games will take advantage of high core counts, so your GPU may not hit 100% and upgrading CPU in this case will help but not as greatly as the scenario in the next sentence. If your GPU is not at 100% Usage then a CPU with a better single threaded performance will help.

    Go with a used video card. You can get a GTX 1070, if you're lucky a 1070 Ti for that price. Get a 1TB SSD. It's an extra $5. There's no need for spinning rust. I'd also get a used monitor. eBay is your friend.
