  1. Great to know, thanks! I'll have a look at some B550 boards then
  2. I'm planning on upgrading my current motherboard, and found a B450 Aorus Elite V2 for a really good price in my area. However, after looking at reviews, I noticed that people were having some problems. The main thing I want to know is, do both M.2 slots work, can I use 2 M.2's at the same time, and does the motherboard have a problem with overclocking (I want to do all these things, but the reviews said they had problems with them).
  3. I've been having a problem where my PC randomly freezes for no reason. It doesnt matter what I'm doing - Playing a game, watching youtube, or having the PC just idle - it'll just randomly freeze and I have to completely turn it off using the power button. I read somewhere that this could be because of old drivers, but after checking, all my drivers were up to date. I have no idea why this would happen, and its extremely annoying. How can I fix it?
  4. Okay, I did some more benchmarks, and it seems its something to do with GTA. Sniper Elite 4 ran at the 75FPS, and used 90% of the GPU. Battlefront 2 also averaged between 65-75FPS while using 90% of the GPU. Only other problem I found was when benchmarking Mirrors Edge: Catalysts, which used only around 60% of the GPU, while running in the 50-60 frames, as well as having stutter every so often.
  5. After doing some tests with the MSI Afterburner, it seemed to me that my PC was underperforming. My parts are as follows: CPU: Ryzen 5 2400g GPU: Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 Windforce OC RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3000mhz One game I tested was GTA V. I had most settings set to high, yet it showed that both my CPU and GPU were running at only 50%, and I was averaging about 50FPS. My monitor is capable of displaying 75FPS max, but I've only seen the game reach this in the tunnel located by the sawmill. How can I get my parts to go about 50% usage, and get my FPS to
  6. Even after following 2 youtube setup tutorials step-by-step, I still can't get MSI Afterburner to show up in my games. I've downloaded both the Afterburner and RivaTuner, and selected everything that I want to have showing up. But I just can't get it to show up. Does anyone know how I can get it working?
  7. So I'm trying to help a friend build a gaming rig. While he is going to play more moder titles, he cares more about frames than graphics. The main games he's going to play are CoD, BF, GTA, etc. So far we got a pretty okay setup, and still have €230 left. What GPU would go well with the Ryze 3 3100 for that price?
  8. Dude I only heard of DBrand.... Havent checked it, I only know they make skins. I wanted to make sure before using my time to look at their offers.
  9. Okay, so I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I didnt know where else to post this. So, my question is, when buying a DBrand skin (for the Series X as an example), do I recieve just the skin and then apply it onto my Xbox, or do I recieve an Xbox with the skin already applied?
  10. Unfortunatly no - I've had it ever since I built my PC though. I have the RTX 2060 in, but the processor I'm still waiting for. I'd say its not so good on effiency, however it has been able to power my GPU, though it feels like my GPU isnt reaching its full capabilities. I do think this is because of my current CPU bottlenecking it, I still want to know if my PSU could be a part of the problem.
  11. I'd like to know if my PSU would be capable to power my PC while playing games. Originally when I bought my PC, I didnt have a lot of money to put into it, so I had to go for cheaper options. I have an off brand 550W power supply. Will this be able to run an R5 3600 paired with an RTX 2060? I mainly plan on playing Cyberpunk 2077, CoD, GTA V, etc.
  12. I live in Ireland, so I'd be going off of UK prices if I were buying a new one. A 3600 is £185 (around $250) and a 3700X is £298 (around $400), and I'm sure if I looked for a used one, I'd be able to find it cheaper.
  13. I'd say go for the 2080S. Its a really good price and it'll be quite some time before 3000 series GPU's are on the market for reasonable prices.
  14. What is your mobo and CPU? To me it sounds like either there is insufficient airflow either for the GPU or in general, or the GPU is somehow damages. A less likely cause could be that either the PSU is damaged or is not powerful enough, but thats highly unlikely.
  15. I plan on playing a pretty heavily modded GTA V. Would the 3600 handle a lot of mods, or should I go with the 3700X if I'm modding? I wont be doing much more than that.
