Upgrade path questions
TheHostileGamer posted a topic in Video Cards and MonitorsI am playing The Division beta and I'm looking to upgrade so I can play this game on Ultra settings and a reasonable FPS. Current benchmarks show AMD's are beating the nVidia's by up to 20FPS in some settings (see ) My current rig: CPU: Core i5 2550K (Sandy Bridge) at 4.5Ghz Mem:8Gb Corsair vengeance @ 1648Mhz GPU: nVidia GTX770 2gb I run everything fine with High settings and shadows down to Low/Mid my FPS maintains around 50ish out of combat and 30ish in combat My question is should I spring for a GTX970/980 or should I consider a system rebuild to avoid bottlenecks? I'm not really wanting to do a full system build again so I'm leaning to just getting a new GPU, but what are your guys' thoughts? I was also thinking of just getting another GTX770 and doing SLI because doesn't DX12 and Windows 10 to combine the video memory to 4gb then rather than sharing the 2gb from one card? Thanks for any input!

Jklein posted a topic in Miscellaneous HardwareI have a hp pavillion g7 2240-us and the laptop fan is constantly loud because it comes on a lot I have cleaned out th dust twice and it will stop for awhile but statrts whirring constantly so I was thinking of replacing the stock fan with thishttp://www.censuspc.com/Dynatron-i2-Intel-Socket-G-PGA988-Copper-Heatsink-1U-and-Up-Server-CPU.html would it cool better than the stock fan and also would it be able to sufficiently cool a 45 watt rpga988 or would I still want to stick with a 35 watt when I upgrade my processor?

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-06-02 14:20 EST+1000) I've recently updated my system with a new PSU, Graphics Card and Ram. Everything else in this list was happily running until a few days ago when it randomly shut off. I assumed it was my old PSU as I'd had some trouble with it before and it was due for an upgrade anyway. I tested that the PSU was powering on the system (minus the graphics card) before installing it and everything appeared to be fine. I didn't actually test it with a monitor though. After installing everything in the case except for the graphics card I decided to boot up the system to remove my old drivers before installing the 7970. However, the system restarted after less than a second. Upon showing something on the monitor I was informed that there was a CPU over voltage error and was given the option to go to the bios to change my settings. I reset everything to defaults and tried again. This time the computer restarted roughly twelve times before I switched it off manually. I tried again only to be told that in addition to there being a CPU over voltage error that Surge Protection had been enabled to protect my motherboard from a faulty PSU. So far I've considered that either the CPU, motherboard, PSU or some combination of all of them is at fault and that I will have to return something or everything. What am I looking at here? Is everything dead or can I salvage something? Thank you for your help, I'm kind of freaking out here. I really appreciate any thoughts you may have, even if you're not 100% sure.

Cpu fan no taller than 120mm
lawzy posted a topic in Overclocking and CoolingHey community. I have been looking on this forum and other places online for information about a good CPU fan that is either 120mm high or low profile that will fit an am3+ motherboard i have had no look and was wondering if this community has any ideas. There are some problems with my rig though. The case is 7 inches wide so roughly 178 mm and my motherboard sticks out about 30 mm and my side case fan is 25 mm I can't access the rear of my motherboard so all CPU fans that need the special mounting bracket are out. I intend to do some light overclocking but nothing extreme so efficiency is of semi importance. I will give you guys my spec just incase it helps. AMD FX4170 quad core @ 4.2 ((stock CPU cooler) the reason i wish to change it is due to temps of 57C at full load using prime95) Nvidia 9400 GT (this will be upgraded soon to a AMD Radeon HD 7770) Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 500GB HDD 1 Arctic f12 fan (intake) 2 Arctic f12 pwm fans (side case) 2 Artiic f8 fans (exhaust) 8GB Ram If anymore information is needed feel free to ask.
