    Radeon 7 is Released, What Would You Buy?

    I voted "Nothing, I am disappointed with current stack of GPUs" because of the current prices. $700 for the Radeon 7 or $700 for the RTX 2080. Here in Canada, it will probably translate to ~1000CAD... lol Not interested. I don't care if it's 3x faster than the previous gen, I'm not paying that...

    80°C on RTX 2080

    Get the case out of the cupboard for testing purposes, if temps are still this high then it's not the cupboard. If temps do improve then you'll know why it's so high.

    80°C on RTX 2080

    No, it's not. Considering that it only is loaded @67%, it shouldn't hit 82°C. What exact model are you using and what case is it in?

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    You mention that your FPS dips below 50 when tanks explode, cars crash, etc when your FPS hovers around 60 to 70 when it does not happen. When you FPS drops, 2 things can be happening. 1- Your CPU is bottlenecking (or single channel memory). 2- Your GPU is not powerful enough. 1- If your CPU...

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    Thus why, I asked if your GPU usage dips (not CPU) when your FPS dips. You can use GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner or similars to monitor your GPU usage. You want to know if your CPU will bottleneck a better GPU then you need to know if it's the CPU or the GPU that is currently causings the frame dips.

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    Irrelevant, GPU usage is what matters.

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    When your FPS dips, does your GPU usage also dips? If it does, then you're CPU (or memory bandwidth (Single Channel vs Dual)) limited and if it does not then you're GPU limited.

    TPU Site Issues 2018

    Isn't it what it should do? If you enter a keyword it overrides everything you could have entered in previous fields.

    Intel 600P going bad?

    The only way you'll know for sure it's the drive is by using it in another computer. OR Find another NVMe drive to test your computer.

    Problem with both my HD 7790 and R9 280x graphic cards.

    This is not a R9 280X. This is a R9 280. The BIOS you need is either this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/158557/sapphire-r9280-3072-140508 or this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/162073/sapphire-r9280-3072-140508-3 Try both and see what happens, one of them should work.

    Strange lag issue persistent throughout multiple windows reinstalls

    Move the 4GB sticks to slots #1 and #3 and put the 8GB in slot #2. Some times just by moving the ram around it solves itself. The thing is you're using 3 different RAM sticks of 2 sizes... You're only fix might be to remove the 8GB stick... If it still isn't fixed, try with only 1 stick in slot#...

    Razer mouse for 20 eur?

    It's either a copy or a version which was only offered in asia. To my knowledge Razer Deathadder always had 2 side buttons. The mouse linked doesn't have them. Even the Deathadder from 2007 had the side buttons. So all you get is the look and ergonomy. It uses a infrared sensor while current...

    EVGA gtx 780 no picture

    Be more specific, when does the screen goes black? 1- Can you get to the BIOS with the card installed? If not then reset the BIOS to factory default. 2- You can see the computer post but it fails to load Windows? = Bad drivers or corrupt Windows. Try to boot in safe mode and uninstall what you...
