I am looking to buy my daughter a gaming PC, but I have no idea where to begin! I am hoping you can help me and tell me exactly what specs I need within the tower to allow the following games to run with decent graphics, no lagging - and run as a PC, where she can do homework, stream, etc.
Thank you in advance, Kaley!
Just a quick question! When gaming, do games rely on single-core performance or multi-core performance? Since I'm building an Intel gaming PC, I'm having issues choosing between a Core i5 9600K or a 10th-gen Intel Core CPU.
Also, could you check if my PC parts work well and any suggestions for better performance or upgrades?
I want to upgrade my graphics card, but I don't know where to start. Here are the specs of my PC:
I don't know where to start. Please help me!
Hey TweakTown, I'm an avid gamer and do some editing with Adobe AE and Premiere. I currently have an i7 6700k overclocked to 4.5GHz, 32GB DDR4 running @ 3400 CL 16, and an RTX 2080.
I have a decent gaming rig, but with the AMD Ryzen Zen 3 announcement around the corner + seeing what Intel can bring to the table soon, I'm torn. Do I wait until my current i7 6700k is no longer keeping up or upgrade now with prices being reasonable for an i5 10600k setup/AMD equal? All I need is a CPU and motherboard.
What would you do in my current position?
Hi team, I'm planning to build a new PC.
My question is should I buy DDR4 RAM or wait for DDR5 RAM. Is 3200MHz enough for gaming, surfing, and a little bit of editing like Photoshop and video editing? Are there any compatibility issues with either Intel or AMD CPUs? I haven't decided about which CPU should I go for.
Hi, I have a B550 motherboard (GIGABYTE B550i) and a GIGABYTE RX 5700 XT graphics card inside a custom case using a 30cm PCI-e riser cable.
The PCI-e riser cable is only gen 3.0, so I have had to set the PCIe graphics to "Gen 3.0" in BIOS (to overcome issues). My question is, can I upgrade to a PCI-e 4.0 SSD (e.g., Samsung 980 Pro) and use the SSD at PCI-e Gen 4.0 while keeping the graphics at Gen 3.0, or do I need to upgrade the riser cable to PCI-e 4.0 as well?
In other words, can the B550 chipset support graphics at PCI-e Gen 3.0 and an SSD at PCI-e Gen 4.0 at the same time? Thanks!
I am looking to purchase a mid-high tier GPU to match the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5600X CPU. My first choice was to get the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT because the NVIDIA GeForce 2070 Super was more expensive, but is it worth considering the AMD driver issues currently, or have they been ironed out leading up to the new Navi GPUs?
I have an Intel Core i5 6500, 16GB of DDR4 2400 memory, and an AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB.
If I upgrade to something like an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, or one of the new AMD Radeon cards in that price range when they launch, will I need to upgrade my CPU to avoid bottlenecks, and if so, what would you recommend for a CPU that won't bottleneck that range of GPU but that won't break the bank?
I only have the budget to upgrade my GPU or CPU. What would give me more FPS boost - AMD Ryzen 9 5900X or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070?
My AMD FX-4300 CPU was coming on six years old, so I decided to go an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with its $150 sale price back in August.
COVID-willing, I'll be off to college in under a year and am looking to finalize my setup for the next 4-6 years. Waiting on supposed 3060 Super or Ti announcements to replace my 1060, but I know I want to go 1440p come Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
Yet there are so many conflicting opinions on monitor size. I wanted to go 32" as my current 1080p panel is, but the internet says 27" is optimal for QHD. What do I go for? And will mid-range Ampere even make 1440p worth it?
