  1. Maybe you could get an "amateur" level measurement of CPU/GPU bottlenecking by running a benchmark that has high CPU and GPU usage? Maybe if the GPU is doing fine, but the CPU starts to throttle or not be able to keep up, you know it's bottlenecking?
  2. I have an older Samsung LED monitor. It was built for office use, so it has a terribly low brightness and horrible color accuracy. I want to buy myself a monitor that would be good for both photo editing and gaming, without breaking the bank. I don't do photography professionally, but I do print high quality photos. I want it to be 27+ inches, 1440p, IPS, and hopefully a high refresh rate, but I'm willing to sacrifice refresh rate. I was looking at photography specific monitors like Dell Ultrasharps and Asus ProArts, and then gaming specific monitors like the LG Ultragears, but I honestly don'
  3. I reset my bios and then made sure the boot order is correct.
  4. It is detected, but it won't boot to the SSD
  5. So I reset my PC the other day to solve a performance issue, and it blue screens a few times a day now... But today, just a few minutes ago, I got a BSOD and the error message was "critical process died" and now my boot device, an Adata SU655, isn't recognized and when I turn my PC on, I get an error. What do I do? Specs: Ryzen 5 2600X RTX 2070 Super 2x 8gb Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3600mhz MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC 960gb SU655 Bitfenix Formula Gold 650 Watt
  6. okay, so how do I properly backup everything if I don't have another drive to put copies of files onto?? Should I just try to borrow something from a friend?
  7. I currently have a 960gb Adata SU655 in my system, and it's dramless and doesn't perform as well as I would like it to. I would like to buy an M.2 ssd (probably a Samsung 970 EVO 2tb or something... any suggestions?) and move my OS and files to that, format my current drive, and use it as a second storage device in my computer. What are the steps involved in completing this?
  8. I just realized... I turned on "hardware accelerated gpu scheduling" in windows settings a couple weeks ago, to see what it did. Should I try turning that off?
  9. I found that bitdefender was constantly using around 25% cpu, 15% ram, and a little bit of gpu usage. I have uninstalled it, for now at least, and it seemed to have helped a little. I'm also looking at temps and at idle, cpu is 42°C, gpu is 55°C, ram is 42°C, and my SSD is 50°C... All of those seem a little bit high but not awful. I'm going to reset all BIOS settings and see what happens then.
  10. I removed all AMD drivers, and deleted them, and deleted all old files for them and installed Nvidia drivers. I've swapped GPUs before. I also have all the latest driver and windows updates. Next steps?
  11. Yes. I went from an RX580 to this RTX 2070S a couple months ago. Temperatures all seem fine, CPU max of 55° usually, GPU max of 75-80. SSD and ram all seem to be good temps too...
  12. I have noticed some odd slowdowns recently... Occasional momentary hangups in programs like task manager or Chrome. Do you have any suggestions for troubleshooting?
  13. I'm running at 1080p on a slightly older samsung monitor, OC'd to 75hz. Currently, on medium settings, I'm getting 50-60 fps with regular stuttering and freezing in game, but any higher settings and it goes down to ~30 fps or so. So you're saying that it would be better to buy a better SSD, like a samsung 860 or something, and that should improve my performance?
  14. I just bought and downloaded Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the new one) and the framerate wasn't very good at anything above medium settings. My specs: Ryzen 5 2600x at 4.05 Ghz Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super OC Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 2x8gb 3200mhz 650 Watt 80+ gold PSU MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Adata SU655 960gb I was thinking that maybe the slowest parts of my PC now are the SSD and the CPU... Which one would benefit the performance more with an upgrade?
