#2158185 Could use some suggestions for gpu

Posted by Fight Game on 08 January 2017 - 02:17 PM

With only $100, I'd personally look into something used.  Wait for a good deal, or maybe settle on a gtx 960?

#2155983 Zen data leaked

Posted by Fight Game on 18 August 2016 - 11:32 AM

AMD ran a demo using Blender to compare the performance of a Zen engineering sample processor to an Intel Core Core i7-6950 Broadwell-E processor. The Summit Ridge processor (8-core / 16-thread) for the demo was running at a clock frequency of 3GHz and the Intel processor was set to 3GHz as well to have a good clock for clock comparison. To the surprise of most in the audience the Zen processor completed the benchmark just a fraction of a second or so ahead of the Intel processor! This is pretty damn impressive, but we don’t know the specifics of the and this benchmark was likely cherry picked for the Zen debut.

#2155414 Opinions, advice and positive criticism on a build I am planning.

For the graphics card question, yes. There is no way I would spend $230 for a 960.

And for the M.2 slot ssd, it's just something to consider. Either way, you will want more than 120gb. You'll want something at least big enough for the operating system and your favorite game or two. It will be more expensive for sure, but at least you won't need to upgrade and you'll take fulkl advantage of what the motherboard is offering.

#2155357 looking to upgrade

The newest graphic cards may see an improvement from the pcie lane at x8 vs x16.  If you will ever use 2 cards you should check into it.  Or if you still have this system when the next generation comes out.  2 cards at x16 = 32.  Plus the new ssd cards use pcie lanes, not to mention any other cards (sound, network, etc) you may use.

I just have to say that I have never even seen a motherboard manufacturer claim anything about refresh rates.  Is this a joke?

#2136188 Best motherboard that supports DDR4

Posted by Fight Game on 28 January 2015 - 12:21 PM

You don't have many choices.  So far from what I've read, and depending on what you plan to use it for and if you want to overclock it or not, it probably won't matter much.  Nearly every board from the previous generation offered the same performance levels and it appears that way with DDR4 - so far - as well.  Just get one that has all the functions you will want and need, for example all of the types or number of pci-e slots

#2124336 Free Anti Virus Recomendations

Posted by Fight Game on 02 July 2014 - 08:43 AM

I had to get rid of avg again today.  I used it years ago, until it turned slow.  Then I went to avast.  Then, during a fresh windows install, I heard about AVG being good again, so I've been using it for about a year, but have noticed it recently being really slow to update, and wanting to update every single time I turn on the computer.  I've went into the settings and told it only to update at 2am and not to update when I turn the computer on, if the update was missed, but it still does.  And for some reason that simple download process, whether there was an actual update or not, would slow my computer to a crawl.  I'm also tired of it changing my home page, installing tool bars, etc.

So I took the advice here and trying MSE now.

#2119531 Problems with my drive!

Posted by Fight Game on 16 April 2014 - 03:20 PM

attachicon.gifhd tune-1.jpgHere's how my 4yr old 500 gb reads after today's test, Most of them lose speed around the end of the test but do not bottom out like your's did.


All mechanical disks will lose some towards the end of the test.  Some more than others..  But in each revolution of the drive, there is more space on the outside edge than on the inside.
