    Gohardgrandpa reacted to ZePat in what games can I play   
    I personally doubt it.  Yes, the 1030 is somewhat more powerful than the HD5770(mobile) from the laptop you describe, but the main factor here would be the CPU and that older DDR2 RAM of which you only have 4GB of.  Without truly knowing the full specs of the laptop you consider having "lower specs" and compare your "older low-end PC" to, we can't give you a more "accurate guesstimate" of what your performances would be, and which game would truly be playable.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to Levent in dell studio upgrades   
    Nope however you can find the fastest CPU it came with factory (with a google search) and that should be your safest bet.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to SorryClaire in Arma 3 low fps on high end pc   
    Also an extra tips from me:
     
    Try to shift the loads to GPU. Get rivatuner overlay and see your CPU and GPU load and spread it more to the GPU because this game really gonna chokeslam your CPU harder than Undertaker will ever dream he could do.

    The 3070 is a nice card for ultra wide. 3440x1440 is demanding but the 3070 will get the job done for sure

    I've had signatures turned off on my screen for a while now so I don't even see it. I was running the 10850k with  rtx 3070. I sold that rig months ago for $2k, someone offered me $1200 for my 3070 so I sold it then sold the rest of the pc for $800 to someone I know
    Sig is updated now

    @Sequidle  this is what @unclewebb had me do with my i7 9700f and it fixed all the issues I was having. My cpu was hitting 100% usage all the time and making my pc run terrible. After changing this stuff my system has been great

    Don't waste money. Save it for the next socket and upgrade everything 
    Hell I'm using a i7 9700f/Rtx 2070 super at 1440p still. I wanted to upgrade but really don't need to, I started putting money up for the next socket upgrade

    I use the new Xbox controller, I think it's called core. Bluetooth and with the adapter work fine. I always plug it in because I forget to charge my batteries and have a long USB c cable.

    The original Ryzen CPUs were really finicky about ram. I haven't seen many issues in a long time, seems like Ryzen 3000 figured it out

    You don't actually know what model PSU you have, do you?
     
    No matter. Since you know so clearly what the problem isn't when people make suggestions, looks like you're left to figure out what the problem is on your own. Unless you're just going to go with the "curse" theory. Sounds very scientific. Of course, that makes this thread sort of pointless for discussion, makes it more of a rant really.

    Gohardgrandpa got a reaction from SixtyfpsGaming in Switch now or later ?   
    I'd buy the regular version. Making the screen OLED and bigger without increasing the resolution was a bad move on Nintendo's part. 
    The screen on the regular version is fine, my wife uses hers everyday and I've used it a bit to play old stuff on with no issues.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to KaitouX in How big of a difference will be between 50~100$ MB and over 350$   
    Some cheap Intel boards fail to even deliver stock performance of some CPUs with higher TDP, so what you said isn't entirely accurate.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to ClxMase in How far can I overclock my 3700x?   
    Now now! Before everyone hops on me, YES I know Ryzen 3000 is a crappy platform for overclock but who gives a flying f**k. I just wanna know how far I can push this CPU with a 120MM AIO from NZXT. It already handles temps like a champ at 4.3GHZ. I want it to go faster. I want higher Ghz. I don't really know jack about Overcocking my cpu 😉. Okay but in all seriousness am I able to get this thing past the max boost AMD says I can? PBO Is enabled btw :). I want it to run like 4.5 or 4.7GHZ. Is this possible. Will I need to modify my voltages or anything?
     
    3700X - 3070 - 16GB of Whatever Ram at 3800MHZ.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to Somerandomtechyboi in How far can I overclock my 3700x?   
    Lmao that 120mm is gonna suffer if you try ocing it xD
     
    I think the safe volts that are widely accepted are 1.4, you can go 1.45 but thats gonna degrade your cpu faster and your cooler would have already died by then xD

    Gohardgrandpa got a reaction from Mister Woof in I7 9700f 100% CPU usage   
    Alright so after making those changes things have significantly changed.
     
    Cpu temps have gone thru the roof, as in 90c +. My fps increased big time, I haven't seen the cpu usage go any higher than 70% now and everything is super smooth like it should be. Seriously thank you for the help. I'm currently online looking for a cooler because I can't game on this with the air cooler I have. I have a local best buy so maybe they will have something, if not I'll order one online and use my PS5 til it comes in. Once again @unclewebb thank you so much, I was so close to buying a new motherboard cpu and cooler online and putting this on ebay.

    Gohardgrandpa got a reaction from Dawon in Can I run a rtx 3060 with 550w psu?   
    That psu will be more than enough. The 3060 is a pretty low power card and the 3700x isn't that power hungry either

    The first mistake you made was reading an Amazon review.  People are stupid as hell. 

    It’s a pre built desktop that’s total overkill for what you want to do. You’ll be fine quit worrying about it.
