    If you are building a "rendering" rig then you should go x79, x99 or Ryzen.

    need suggestion and help

    https://www.cnet.com/products/sony-vaio-e-series-vpc-ea15fg-w-15-5-core-i5-2430m-4-gb-ram-500-gb-hdd-qwerty/specs/ says you have an i5 with HD3000 igpu. Nothing about an amd graphics card. Dota - http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=1249&game=DOTA%202 - should run on HD2600.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6 GB

    I think the prices should be checked again to come up with the performance per dollar info. And I'm wondering if latest drivers were used, how much the performance figures would change.

    PSU dead now?

    CX600 are known to have problems - cheap faulty caps. As above - TRY ANOTHER PSU.

    Senseless threads, Polls, trolls, and jacka$$ery.

    It takes too many rules to completely stop bad practices. But one or two may cut it back to a 'handleable' amount.

    PSU question Regarding GPU upgrades

    I go on RealHardTech's recommendations - http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm - 1000W for a PC with 2 x Fury X. I have 2 x Nanos - 750W. I don't OC them though - you can't really. All that happens is that they go a slight bit faster and a lot hotter.

    Never used RAM Slot broke???

    I'd have a go at cleaning the slot out first. Fluid eg IsoPropyl/Rubbing alcohol is OK. Just blow it out with air and let it dry out before trying it. Put a ram stick in and out several times too.
