  1. From the looks of it the SN550 seems to have slightly better performance than the other two, so I guess I'll go with that.
  2. Yeah thats what I was thinking, I was just wondering if there were any better deals to be had.
  3. It doesn't really matter to me, whichever one will get me better performance for what I'd be using it for. Looking online, I saw that either the crucial p1 or intel 665p might be good options.
  4. Hi everyone I'm looking for help picking an upgrade for my system. I'm currently using the Samsung 860 EVO 500gb. I'm looking for the best 1tb ssd I can get for around $100. It would be used as my main os drive, for games, and other programs. Thank you!
  5. Unfortunately reinstalling the drivers didn't help. It happened again with the same exact errors in event viewer. Is there anything else you would recommend trying before RMA'ing?
  6. It seems like the general consensus is to sell the current board and processor and go for a 3300x. So I think we'll go with that. Thank you everyone for your help.
  7. He built the system a couple months so it's definitely ddr4.
  8. My friend is in need of a cpu upgrade and I was hoping for some recommendations. He's currently got some pnetium processor with a gigabyte aorus h370 motherboard. He's got a $200 budget. At first I was thinking something like the i5-9400f, but with the new A520 motherboards coming out I think we could probably squeeze in one of those with a 3300x. What would be the best upgrade? (He's got an rx 570 atm so I don't think there will be a bottleneck)
  9. Hi everyone I've had this problem for awhile and I was hoping I could get some help with solving it. Here's what's happening: So if I do happen to be gaming when it happens both of my screens go black for a second, my game closes, and then the windows I have open on my second display kind of disappear leaving the outlines of the windows. Then everything goes back to normal. Then after some random amount of time like 10 seconds-2 minutes, my PC will crash. Sometimes I get a BSOD that gives the message "Video_TDR_FAILURE (atikmpag.sys), other times my primary display goes black and my secondary
  10. I remounted it and tightened the cage. No sound as of booting back up, so I guess this is solved. Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help here. Just now I woke my computer from sleep and noticed a buzzing noise. I restarted and it was still there so I popped off the side panel and took the video below. The sound is definitely caused by hard drive vibrations because it stops or gets quiter when I put my finger on it. I'm wondering if this is a sign that something is wrong and how I would go about fixing it if it is. Also the hard drive in question is the Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 2tb which I've had vibration problems with in the past. *You may need to turn your volume up to hear
  12. Not sure if this is the place where this post should be, but this is the best fit I found. Anyway, because I've been doing alot more stuff on my computer at home because of Covid-19 and I'm worried about eye strain, fatigue, and such. The room my setup is in doesn't really have great lighting and I've heard that setting up lights behind monitors helps with all the problems. I looked online and it seems that bias lights are the solution to the problem. I dont really want to spend a whole lot of money on this (probably no more than $15) because it's not that big of a deal at the moment. I did a
