    Extremely stuck with my build. Possible bottlenecking? (major FPS problems)

    You aren't giving anything to go on. What problems are you having? There's nothing wrong with your gear. If you're having severe performance drops lower the settings of the game you're playing. If that doesn't work and you think you might have a virus or something software related wrong...

    Thermaltake A700 TG

    It's a quality case no doubt but 300 dollars is a tough ask. I imagine most that can afford this will have their own cooling setups but a single 14cm intake is laughable for what they are asking. I wouldn't mind seeing two 200mm fans up front.

    Many issues with MSI B450M + Ryzen 3700X [help needed]

    My first SSD was a Sandisk 120GB. I had an issue where I would have to press the reset button on my case after powering the system on or it would hang during startup. It booted fine afterwards and I never had any issues using it in windows so I just dealt with it. That lasted a couple years.

    Uhh, yeah it does.

    NVIDIA Could Launch GTX 1650 Ti on October 22nd

    I wonder if this will have the new turing encoder.

    Cooler Master Mastercase H100

    This looks good. I'm a sucker for cases with 200mm fans. No glass panels is an upside to me. It's a shame itx boards are so pricey. Edit: After seeing some replies I watched the review by Optimum Tech. The temps aren't nearly as good as I thought they would be. I wasn't expecting it to break...

    AMD's Zen 2 Threadripper Conspicuously Absent From Company's Latest Roadmaps

    One would hope that a forum could exist without someone stirring up hatred but there's always one. Brand loyalty makes no sense. These are corporations with one goal. They don't care about you.

    ASUS Reveals Listing of Motherboards, Chipsets Receiving Update for Next-gen Ryzen; A-Series Absent

    My friend bought https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/A320M/index.asp#CPU on my recommendation. It was 50 bucks making it the cheapest option at the time and he wasn't interested in overclocking. It has an 8 pin CPU power, supports 95w CPUs (aka every AM4 CPU), and even has a vrm heatsink. There are...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming X 4 GB

    Sigh. I was hoping this would be a better value than a 1660 but as I feared, it's not.

    Computer won't post with PCI power connected to video card

    It's good to know this isn't an isolated incident.

    Computer won't post with PCI power connected to video card

    This post is on behalf of a friend. He said he woke up and his computer wouldn't turn on. Attempting to start it would result in the fans and lights turning on a split second and then nothing. We eventually narrowed it down to the PCI 6 pin being plugged in to his GTX 960. If you pull the plug...

    Let's just be happy that AMD are doing well somewhere.

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    HBM is expensive and 16GB is overkill. I would rather see it ship with 8GB and a lower price. Can someone point me to a benchmark of a game using more than 8GB of vram?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition Pictured, Tested

    The performance numbers are surprising, faster than I expected. As for Nvidia's pricing: They will charge as much as they can, which is currently a lot because they have no competition. If AMD or Intel ends up putting out something competitive than maybe we'll see some price drops.
