  1. Hi Which laptop could be better? With better cpu or gpu I mean, Lenovo legion 5, intel core i7-12XX, rtx 3050 ti TGP 95W, 16GB RAM or lenovo legion 5, intel core i5-11400H, rtx 3060 TGP 130W, 16GB RAM
  2. So, GPU as well as CPU usage is pretty low at around 70% max respectively in this game and framerates show it - I land at just under 60FPS. Is there any way to fix it? My system runs fine otherwise. Currently no game other than Star Citizen shows this issue. Game is installed on a Samsung 840 Evo SATA SSD. Specs: Windows 10 21H1 R5 5600x 2x16GB Crucial Ballistix 3200MT/s, Dual Rank MSI MAG B550m Mortar Wifi MSI RTX 2070 Armor Corsair RM650i DxDiag.txt

    Need advice

    I know almost nothing about PC's hardware. I have a Nvidia GTX 970 4GB (I think) and when I start up SC it takes a giant laggy dump all over my screen, I can barely get up out of the bed. My situation is dire. I need to know what is the bare minimum I can get away with so I can play this game with high graphic settings? I can't afford the high end stuff, i got an i5 with 16 gb ram I can't look at the specs since its in the repair shop and my memory is shot from decades of grass! Any help would be appreciated.
  4. https://www.anandtech.com/show/16057/nvidia-announces-the-geforce-rtx-30-series-ampere-for-gaming-starting-with-rtx-3080-rtx-3090 In the RTX 20 series, the 2080 Ti was way ahead of the rest of the pack, even one step down, the RTX 2080 (Super or not) didn't come close. But in the 30 series, even the RTX 3070 looks like it might have better performance than the 2080 Ti. If true, this will be a revolutionary GPU. I plan to buy at around the same time or maybe slightly before the next Ryzen CPUs come out end of year. I think the best plan will be to order when the Ryzen release date is announced. (On a related note, I definitely think this next release is the moment when AMD unambiguously takes the CPU crown from Intel at the high end, even for gaming.) By later this year all the other manufacturers will have their best offerings in stock at normal prices, so I'll be able to get my usual triple fan version. Not sure yet if I'll get 3070, 3080, or 3090, will try to get best price performance and only go 3090 if its head and shoulders above the 3080 like the 2080 Ti was above the 2080.
  5. I get these notifications in the email - lots of great deals to be found for RAM, SSDs, etc Newegg and Microcenter, sometimes PNY, mostly Newegg, though, really! get moar stuff, NO REALLY!! buy buy buy!! good deals on SSDs, DDR4 RAM, next gen Intel CPUs And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)

    Ongoing Discussion GPU comparisons: GTX1070ti vs RTX2070

    I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped? price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360 Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them. The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti. The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic: I am not authoritative....

    Build help New GPU

    So, long story short, my GPU fried after a bad accident with some thermal paste and I must pick a new one. Basic data: I have a i7 2600k ( admittedly old, it's going to be the next thing I switch), 16 gig of ram and a SSD for SC. So, to keep it short, which one would you pick between a Strix RX580 8GB and a Cerberus GTX 1070TI 8 GB and why? Thanks

    Want to Buy Radeon R9 290x

    Hey fellow citizens, I'm looking to buy a couple Radeon R9 290x graphics cards. If you have one, please PM me with a price. Thanks!
  15. This will be a shorter thread than the other two I started. It should just be the basics of building your own gaming computer and I hope it gets pinned. The others are for those of us who have already built their rigs and want to modify or augment. This one is just about building your first rig. I'll have building videos, links, and some troubleshooting advice. Everybody feel free to contribute, but keep it on track as a noob thread. Assume ignorance of the process, but don't denigrate anybody. Usually, Tom's Hardware has lots of good info and advice. Here are just the basics. Cooling options for your CPU can be found in the other thread Computer rig accessories. First things first, how much do you want to spend and when do you want this computer ready to use. so, start here to get an idea of how much money you could be spending depending on the level of gaming computer you want. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-guide-build-your-own-pc/ <-- this being said, use pcpartpicker.com to spec out your computer before you start buying components. It's pretty good at telling you where the best prices can be found. EVGA has many components to build a whole computer out of so check their B-stock page for deals to help keep your costs down or better performance for your allocated money. CPUs: https://elitegamingcomputers.com/the-best-gaming-cpus/ GPUs: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html Computer cases: Aesthetics, volume usage, and number of fan spaces are important. You can use a micro-ITX or Full Tower. Don't go with a really cheap brand though: http://www.tomshardware.com/t/cases/ This first video is pretty easy to follow. Okay got all those components installed the way they should be? POST beep codes Computer won't post, crap! Time to troubleshoot. Remember these steps: Fault/Isolate; Remove/Replace; Test/Verify. google this: "computer will not post" to find loads of info http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm https://www.computerforum.com/threads/tech-guide-diagnosing-a-pc-which-will-not-post-or-start.209946/ old, but still relevant If it starts but keeps shutting down of maybe you broke it

    Want to Buy XFX RADEON RX 470

  17. Hey Citizens, As the title says, I'm not sure about something. It is probably a noob thing, sorry. My conundrum: My power supply (Corsair RM1000x) comes with 2x 8pin to 8pin cables, both labeled CPU. I'm no genius, but I assume these aren't for PCIE devices. All the 'type 4' PCIE cables that came with the PSU are 8pin to 2x 6+2pin connections... I don't have any 8pin to 8pin connectors other than the one extra labeled 'CPU' and I don't have any 8pin to 1x 6+2 cables, they all have double connectors on the far end. So... When my GTX 1070 arrives tomorrow which receives 2x 8pin connectors, am I to plug in TWO of these 8pin to 2x 6+2 cables and leave one of the 6+2s dangling off of each OR will one of these cables with both connectors in the GPU provide enough power to it? I'm assuming it's just the one cable, being a quality PSU and all.... and if not... that doesn't make any sense.... why are they all Y splitters!? Thanks for your time! Bryce

    Feedback Wanted Dell Inspiron 1548 Help

    I have been using my laptop for work for the last 2 years, and I have had zero problems with the onboard graphics card. I use a lot of Microsoft products and heavy ram intensive products, so I upgraded to 16 gb. Well the screen was defaulted to 2330 X something and I had left it there. The game was jumpy and was unplayable, so I moved the game resolution down to 1960X something, and it was ok but still hard to play because of the jumpiness. So I adjusted my sceen resolution to the same 1960 X something resolution lastnight. After which I spent all night fighting the crash report, or I was falling through walls. Is my onboard gpu not able to handle the game at the way it plays now or do I need to make more adjustments?
  19. I've recently purchased an Acer G257HU 25" 1440p/144Hz IPS monitor to serve as my gaming monitor. All well and good except for the fact that it's locked to the 60Hz refresh rate of my Viewsonic VX2270 21.5" 1080p/IPS monitor that I'm using for mundane chores. Soooo, I'm considering getting a GTX950 for the Viewsonic so I can use the GTX970 SSC solely for the Acer. Anybody have any reasonable arguments why I shouldn't do this? I am running Win 10 and Dx12 and do not plan to game on the Viewsonic.

    Build help Which GPU for 5760x1080?

    Hello guys, first of all I never had a gaming desktop and only started doing research a couple months ago. However I am really confident with my current parts I will get, except the GPU. Now the biggest problem is that I want to run games at high or ultra with a 5760x1080 setup. The screens are already bought and won't be willing to do 4K just yet. My childhood dream was always to have 3 screens As far as I am aware right now there are four options: 1. get two 980s with 4GB as that is the most common and recommended setup, also because a single 980 is the best single gpu in the market as of right now. 2. is the sapphire x9 290x with 8GB each. Now after reading more and more, only some games will benefit far more from having more VRAM. After reading almost every thread/post on the internet I saw that most people are saying that VRAM is not important at all. However on the forums people say that VRAM is highly important, especially for 5760x1080 setup where the actual advantage of an 8GB card comes into play. 3. wait for the AMD 380, which is rumored between now and April to be released. 4. I was reading that we might actually get information about the 8 GB 980 or the titan II beginning of march, can't remember which event that was but, sorry. There are no testing results for a crossfire 290x 8GBs and only single 290x vs 980s, where the 8GB advantage isn't really clear. If someone with heaps of knowledge could please provide me with a possible answer for my dilemma here, that would be great I wouldn't waiting but not till christmas this year. Up till Mai/June would be fine but due to it being winter at that time in Australia I would love to have something to play with while staying in all the time. Money is not too much of an issue but don't want to spend more and 1K for one card. The rest of my build looks like this: (prices are in AUD) CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: RAIJINTEK TRITON BLUE 100.5 CFM Sleeve Bearing Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: Asus Z97-DELUXE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2400 Memory Storage: Intel 730 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X Video Card ($619.00) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X Video Card ($619.00) Case: Phanteks Enthoo Luxe ATX Full Tower Case Power Supply: SeaSonic 1050W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Any further recommendations/suggestions are very welcome too of course Thanks for your help guys!
  22. Did not see this posted on the site, if it has been then please delete this thread. Nice little comparison, Enjoy! http://2p.com/9647554_1/Star-Citizen-GPU-Test-A-GTX750-Could-Give-You-30FPS-At-Max-Setting-1080p-by-Blake-Lau.htm http://gamegpu.ru/mmorpg-/-onlayn-igry/star-citizen-test-gpu.html Star Citizen GPU Test: A GTX750 Could Give You 30FPS At Max Setting, 1080p By Blake Lau on Oct 21, 2014 1681 1 Russian hardware site GameGPU recently tested what kind of GPU you may need to run Star Citizen at max setting at 1080p and above. The sandbox space sim is powered by CryEngine 3 and you need a gaming PC to play the game if you are looking for best experience. GameGPU was using a PC with Intel Core i7 3970X @4.9 ghz CPU, 16GB DDR3 RAM, and 120GB SSD for the test. Res: 1920х1080 Graphics: very high Res: 2560x1600 Graphics: very high Res: 3840х2160 Graphics: very high The hardware requirements aren't scary, and for GPU, a GTX750 could give you an average 30 fps at 1080p. But since the game features space dogfights and planetside FPS experience, some of you may consider 60fps the best experience, and in this case, you will need a GTX 780 (3GB). They also ran a CPU test and got the conclusion that CPU won't affect game performance too much when you have a graphics card like GeForce GTX 780Ti installed in your PC. Please note that the game is still in development and the current build doesn't represent final quality. Via: GameGPU

  24. So... The next generation of Nvidia, and by extension AMD, have been delayed by at least half a year if not until January 2015 because TSMC who manufacture their GPU wafers has had problems with the 20nm manufacture process. What's happened is that Maxwell cards have to be reworked meaning anyone who wanted to wait until the next gen of Nvidia or the next AMD cards came out is going to have to wait even longer. http://www.techspot.com/news/56481-20nm-gpus-unlikely-in-2014-due-to-tsmc-issues.html What do you guys think?
  25. The man himself has finally spoke up a bit on hardware and has settled the age-old red vs. green debate! I kid, I kid. But, seriously, he did give some hardware advice for those of us planning to use 4K monitors. Check out the video! (Keep in mind that this is current gen tech.) Summary: R9 290 (non-X), i5 Haswell CPU (I assume he's referring to the 4670k), 16GB of RAM, and an SSD for your computing pleasure. (Don't forget the 4K monitor!) He specifically recommended the AMD GPU because of the free "performance boost" with Mantle, and he said you don't need a ridiculous CPU because the GPU will be handling the load (as it should be). (That's favorable news for me and my FX-8350; maybe I won't have to upgrade when the PU drops!) Enjoy. [EDIT] Note: I assumed he was referring to 4K monitors with this hardware, but he wasn't explicit. He just said that he's using a 4K monitor and loves it, though he has his 4K monitor paired with two Titans in SLI! In any case, you get the idea.
