  1. I used to have this card. I remember using an old outdated version of after burner or maybe the Asus tuning program to get the voltage to unlock. Newer versions wouldn't work. It was a big hassle.
  2. 2020 seems to be the year of renovations. I bought a project property last fall so I'm in the hardware store a lot. I cant believe how busy they have been.
  3. Parts have been ordered. I'm pretty excited. Thanks for the help fellas.
  4. Here is a screenshot of what I plan to purchase. Please let me know if there are any better options. Maybe my CPU cooler is overkill? I currently have a 212 evo cooler. Keep in mind I am in Canada. Thanks.
  5. No intention to build from scratch. I will need to get some ddr4 though. I've done some quick comparisons and it seems like the 9600k might be best bang for buck right now.
  6. Oh I have lol. Its amazing how time flys. I will check out the 9600k.
  7. Hello everyone. My 1070Ti is being bottle necked in games pretty hard by my i5 3570k. What would be a good upgrade path? Will I need a whole new board and ram? I'm running DDR3 memory on an Asrock Z77 Extreme3 Thanks
  8. Since nobody has responded I will put in my amateur 2 cents. Can the system boot up and run malwarebytes? Spybot search and destroy was always my go to as well but I've honestly not had a big virus problem in a long time. booting into safemode during virus removal helps. I setup my parents with avast on the auto scan and update schedules so I get way less calls from them now. I also taught them to scan files before installing things but I doubt they actually do that. If the system is really messed up I tend to do full format but I'm no pro. What operating system are they running?
  9. Thank you OCC and Cooler Master for the awesome headset. I ended up buying a wireless one just before I found out I had won this one so I decided that my brother needed a headset upgrade. He was quite pleasantly surprised.
  10. I'm back, I have a friend building a fortnite/roblox rig with his son on the cheap. If it's still available I'll pay the shipping to the US. Sorry but whitefiretiger is going to take it.
  11. Is there enough room for your sata cables to go into the mobo? It looks tight.
  12. What happens if I google the word google? Will something break?
  13. Holy crap I posted this up after many beers and then forgot all about it. I will PM whitefiretiger to see if he still wants this. Sorry fellas
  14. I have a Gigabyte R9 270 2GB to give away. You pay shipping. Canada preferred but will send to USA if nobody steps forward. OCC has been very generous to me over the years and I wan't to give back a little bit. Who wants it?
  15. Is there no insurance coverage?
  16. Definitely no free power here. I was trying to use a mining calculator but now there is all these different things like scrypt, x11 and sha-256. I don't even know what one to look at lol.
  17. I just picked up a 1070ti for playing games. I mined a little bit of coins a couple years ago but I've been completely out of the loop since then. Is there any point doing some mining with this card right now?
  18. I was happily using avast free for ages but its certainly not cutting it anymore. Malwarebytes free trial has been good but then it expires and I lose malware protection. What is your go to program right now?
  19. Thanks very much everyone for all these suggestions. I will look into them.
  20. Is there a good way to save all of the windows 7 updates so that I don't have to use bandwidth every time I setup a system? I am considering using windowsupdatesdownloader.com but I have no idea if that's a safe or good way to go. How do you guys tackle this?
  21. The parts are starting to arrive.
  22. I think we are going to go with this mobo instead as it has 7.1 audio MSI B350
  23. Ok, so my brother has the money and is ready to start ordering parts. We are in Canada so keep that in mind with the prices. I am using newegg .ca for the buildup but will compare to other vendors before I actually make the order. We already have : GPU and HDD. This is what I am looking at so far. Phanteks Eclipse P300 $69.99 ASROCK AB350 Pro4 $129.99 EVGA 500w Semi Modular $64.99 G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB $99.99 Ryzen 3 1300X $164.99 Total is $530 before taxes and shipping. Do you guys see any mistakes or better ways to go with this? Should more money be put on the table to get a more future resistant build?
