    Need an affordable GPU that will do 144hz or at least 75hz refresh rate

    what else on a pc needs a 660ti (vs onboard or gt710) and 144hz moni?

    Need an affordable GPU that will do 144hz or at least 75hz refresh rate

    ? last time i checked, the gtx 660 does 200hz on 1080p and 120hz for qhd, so to recommend a new card, without knowing what games are being played (as it has impact on fps) makes little sense.

    Need an affordable GPU that will do 144hz or at least 75hz refresh rate

    because usually, flight or racing sims dont improve much running at 144? even when looking at "smoothness", 144 wont make a big difference there (vs 120), as its between 60 and 120. so ppl spending more, to get a 144 over a 120 screen, are mainly playing FPS and the like. (which i will assume...

    @Toothless yet the op 1. didnt say anything about smoother 2. was happy with lower number which makes gpu cheaper 3. where did i say always for everyone? @milewski1015 i think based on max refresh from screen, so 120, as im running a 120Hz screen..

    unless your playing (ranked) FPS in pvp, higher fps will not do much, except input lag reduction. usually having gsynced 60-90 will be much smoother, produces less heat/noise, and easier to reach. for whatever reason siege wont go past 75 on the new screen (120hz), but the fact its steady @75...

    IF 1800+3600CL15 or IF 1900+3800CL1x ?

    thanks, but might want to read title/question again. only want to use 1800 AND 1900 IF/ram, as i have timings for those clocks, and unless someone does it for me, wont go thru ram testing again. and just because its a 5xxx series doesn't mean it will go above 1800. out of four 5800, only one...

    IF 1800+3600CL15 or IF 1900+3800CL1x ?

    sorry, but just because it boots with a certain if clock, doesn't mean much. i can boot 2100, yet 1900 is barely stable

    IF 1800+3600CL15 or IF 1900+3800CL1x ?

    never had issues on flashing/updates/dual chip. its Gb that messed up basically most of those without the switch. aside that, things like ErP is disabling wifi, no waking up possible, until you clear cmos, and not the only issue. just not acceptable for 300$, nor when i see that sub 200$ i used...

    IF 1800+3600CL15 or IF 1900+3800CL1x ?

    @Zach_01 i can only speak for the x570 i have now (i never cared about Gb, since they never matched specs/features of asus or msi at same price level), never again. When you have qvl ram (tried 2 different kits) that doesnt even post at jedec settings/voltage on a +300$ board, while it works on...

    AMD Acknowledges USB Connectivity Issues on 500 Series Chipset Motherboards

    i can see it happening when if/bus/ram are borderline stable. e.g. removing a stick, win says its gone, but still shows the icon in taskbar, until shutdown/reboot. going from rfc 285 to 290/from IF1900 to 1800 etc, made it stop. @efikkan hope its a server or workstation (that has 24/7 load)...

    There won't be any new X570 motherboards, let's make a list with the ones without a chipset fan

    Its one thing to say i dont like the idea, but stating it will be a problem, without having a crystal ball/time machine is flat wrong. and no, a fan that doesnt run doesnt die, and nothing will evaporate at normal room temps, especially not the synthetic based lubricants (using solvents to keep...

    @Tomgang something will only fail if its actually used. seeing the fan spins up on boot, then turns off (at least when put on balanced/silent profile), it will last way longer than any other fans, and most of brand name fans already do 3-10y warranty. so unless you plan on keeping this past 10y...

    Am so tired of headphone sound imbalance issue.

    yeah, definitely has has ZERO to do with different vol between L/R.

    Am so tired of headphone sound imbalance issue.

    lol, there is no "supposed to be" volume, not sure where you got that from. have yet to see any cans, from brands that are on the market for +30y (making headphones), to have this "supposed to be" volume issue. unless talking about "loud" lossy files, where some audio players recommend limiting...
