    Turbof1 got a reaction from Mih27 in Should I wait for the new gpus or should I buy a rtx 2060?   
    Definitely wait. Cyberpunk isn't coming out for a while and GPU prices are on the high end right now, even on the used market. Once new cards get released the market will be flooded with the 2060's, so you can take advantage of price drops then.

    Turbof1 got a reaction from TheXyad in 2 different 5700XTs are crashing and freezing all over the place. Dunno what else to try...   
    use @-rascal- settings first as a baseline. If that runs stable, increase OC of frequency/mem clock in small 10Mhz steps, until either things start to crash under a Heaven Benchmark or when you see artifacts/weird stuff on the screen.
     
    Should the baseline not be stable, decrease by steps of 10Mhz.

    Turbof1 got a reaction from Connor2803 in Is a 1050Ti Strix Graphics Card for $133 a good deal?   
    Graphics cards are in a weird spot today, with prices being overall too high. If you can hold off buying one, I'd do it. A 1050Ti for 133 dollar sounds overpriced, I got mine for 80 euro's late 2018. So i really wouldn't pay that kind of money for a used one. You might find new GTX 1650's for that price or a little bit more expensive.

    Turbof1 got a reaction from jaslion in Is now a good time to buy a gtx 1080 ti or wait?   
    At this point I wouldn't. Newer graphics cards will come with better suited drivers for new games. So even though a 1080 Ti will on paper out perform a lower tier new graphics card, performance ingame might be such that you are not getting your worth out of it.
     
    Also, going from a 1030 to a 1080 Ti is a very hefty upgrade. You have to consider if your CPU is up to that, as well as your PSU. Newer, lower tier cards are likely to draw less power than the 1080 Ti.
     
    Checking a second hand site for Belgium, I noticed 1080 Ti's are still going for 400 euro's. For that money it is likely Ampere will give you a better card.

    Hello,
     
    Not my usual post around here, but I wanted to bring attention to this as a good buddy of mine is Australian. He has been deeply troubled by what is happening in his home country. I am not going to pretend that I fully grasp the situation, so it's best I quote him directly. If you want, please make a donation. The service(s) you are donating to are verified and we know for sure the money will be directly used to fighting the fires, or helping those who are affected by it. Thank you.

    I do not think that people understand what is happening right now.

    These are not normal Australian bushfires. The entire country is on fire. Most people have no conceptual understanding about just how big Australia is... and therefore, just how bad these fires are. They also just cannot fathom how terrifying and unstoppable a real bushfire is... Have you ever heard of, let alone seen, a fire tornado rip through nature?

    Being an Aerodynamicist, and therefore having a knowledge of how air (oxygen for the fire) moves and how heat causes it to, means that I have some understanding of how these fires flare up fast enough, that you cannot our-drive them, let alone out-run them, simply when the wind blows... which they generate for themselves by the extreme temperatures they scorch the ground and air with (see the video I linked below to see what I mean).

    The fact that only 15 people are dead is astonishingly low, but the half a billion (yes, with a "b") animals are dead, should give you some perspective. We have the worst air quality in the world now. Our Prime Minister has left the country, its wildlife, and nature to burn. He ignored the warnings of potential catastrophic fires, and his response to societies call to action, was to cut funding to the fire services by 70%, crippling the fire services across the nation. Fire-fighters have flown in from around the globe, to help us in this time of crisis.

    So, not only are our incredibly brave fire-fighters under resourced, but they are also fighting fires that the world has never seen before, dwarfing even the great Californian and Amazonian fires of the past.

    I live in Europe now, and so my ability to help my fellow Australians is limitted, however, I do have a reasonable amount of reach within this site, and in my friendship circles.

    I have linked the NSW Rural Fire Service website, who are trying to fight this on the front lines of the hardest hit areas, and need all the support they can get.

    Secondly, to the Australian Red Cross. They are supporting people at evacuation centres by providing psychological support, first aid, emergency assistance (cash grants to people who have lost homes), supporting volunteers, and more.

    Donated what I could. Hope everyone impacted stays safe and gets to safety quickly!
    The company I work for has a donation matching policy so I would encourage people to ask their work if they'll consider matching donations to help amplify the impact if possible.

    if you aren't looking for 4K gaming or ray tracing, save yourself the 280 bucks and  get  that 1070Ti. It's very  good value for your money and performs  almost equally to a GTX 1080. I think you'll be able to push settings to high on 1440p with this card.

    Turbof1 got a reaction from christian franca in Should I go for a 660, 670, or stick with apu.   
    A 970 would certainly not be bad either. They come at the same price as a 1050 Ti and it does have substantially more performance. The drawback is that it has a lot more power consumption. The 1050 Ti only requires 75W, while the 970 requires 145W. With the 1050 Ti he could scale back on the PSU. More so if he gets a version that doesn't require a power connector.
     
    He is aiming to do it with the AMD motherboard and cpu he has right now. I don't know how much budget he has freed up for the project, but I'd say getting another motherboard and cpu would definitely put him way over it. Either way, for the games he wants to play he'll get solid performance probably at 1080p high settings with either a 970 or 1050 Ti.

    To be honest, why go for these old cards. Increase your budget with like 50 bucks and get a 1050 Ti. The latter often doesn't even  need additional power input as the power from the PCIe slot is sufficient.

    The devil is in the details.  Weekly, we're changing parts in BOMs (replacing UBIQ MOSFETs with APEC MOSFETs; replacing APEC MOSFETs with Infineon MOSFETs) after failure analysis due to unexpected failures, not because of heat, but because of a plethora of other things.
