    Oh, well that's even better. 26 years online and I never even tried a mixed setup. Ya think ya know, but ya have doubts, know what I mean. It's weird that it never came up, but there it is... Thanks.

    So you're saying that they wouldn't simply run at the lower speed...? That sucks. Thanks.

    Mixing ddr4 ram..??

    Yea it would be my son that has the slower ram. I swapped out my rips for 32gb of FlareX. I'm thinking that two sets of ripsaws should at least work together even if they are different speeds.

    Thoughts on this card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT...??

    Well, the card came, took a while, but it's installed and so far mostly so good. From what I understand he had to set the fans to "manual" as automatic equaled fans that did not spin. Apparently, manual works just fine... Thanks again guys...

    Thoughts on this card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT...??

    I ran the fx-8350 for years and it was an excellent chip, nothing wrong with it all. That Intel had one that was better does not in any way diminish the goodness of the 8350... In fact the wife uses the very same chip in her computer today, passed down to the boy and then to her, and it still...

    The 2060 is already several hundred more expensive here in Canada. He could surely afford the more expensive one, but like everyone else he is laid off.... So I'ma guessing 2070 would be even more extravagant...

    My son is thinking of buying this card, to go into a ryzen 1700 with gigabyte ab350 mb.(my old rig) He likes the price range, so I told him I'd ask the experts here.... Fire away...!!! Thanks.

    Listening to McCartney's "Ram" as we speak. I think I can declare my issues solved....

    Best replacement for aging X-fi Titanium sound card...??

    I found a new driver, released last summer that seems to have eliminated the weird crackle I was hearing, hopefully that'll do the trick. The one I had, from a few years ago was labelled as the final release for this "end of life" sound card. Guess I'll hold fast for now. Thanks all....:)

    Best replacement for aging X-fi Titanium sound card...??

    Computer used as a htpc ans well as everything else. Speakers would be the Logitech z-5500's. Hoping to find a card that delivers great sound, does not have constant driver issues, and won't break the bank.(yes I know, who isn't) Any thoughts..?? Thanks.

    Yea, I don't believe he's made any partitions. On the other hand, I don't know how much info he has on his C drive. Guess I otter start there...

    Best drive clone software...??

    So, the 960 to 970 plus upgrade went without an issue. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. So, continuing on, the 960 will no go into my son's computer. He has a WD Black spinner. Would I be correct in assuming that HDClone will get the job done...?? Thanks.

    Best drive clone software...??

    Oh I didn't even realize they had a migration tool, guess I should have checked first. Guess I'll go with that one, thanks all.

    Hi guys, just a quick question here. Getting a new Samsung 970 EVO Plus for Christmas, upgrading from the 960 model. Don't wanna bother with a fresh install, so what's best to use to accomplish moving my c drive in it's entirety from old to new...?? Thanks...!!
