  1. Hi everyone. I upgraded my wife's PC with my older Motherboard, CPU and RAM, and added her HDD to that rig. Also added a brand new SSD. Bios does not detect the new drive or the old drive. Strange thing is, the DVD ROM is detected when the exact same SATA port and cable is used. And why would the brand new SSD also not be detected at all? Before testing the new SSD, I thought the HDD had failed. The first time I started, it seemed as though the Windows loading screen came up - now automatically booting from the HDD - but then a very quick blue screen led

  5. Hey man. I have same CPU - i5 6500, 16gb 2666hz RAM and upgraded to GTX1080 two years ago. I game on 1440p, 144hz monitor. I have to say that I was definitely bottlenecked in some games, especially the likes of Star Craft 2, which is heavy physics based. There it was noticeably frustrating as you know that your supposed to play smoothly, but frequent frame drops occur on high settings. So it depends from game to game. My experiences with more recent games have motivated me to upgrade to 9th gen Motherboard and CPU. My advice: get the RTX 2070 - you won
  6. I agree that it varies from the programs you are running with those parts. I have a i5 6500, 16gb 2666hz RAM and a GTX 1080 -gaming mostly on 144hz monitor 1440p - and I have experienced a lot of bottlenecking in many different games. Don't get me wrong, the GTX1080 still owns, but once you get used to those high FPS you want maintain it. Lately, with the new games I am experiencing more bottlenecking than usual, so I intend to upgrade my Motherboard and CPU to 9th gen. Switching to 1080p makes very little difference because the card can take it, but the CPU still h
