    Buzzing thru Speakers When gaming

    The header was already disconnected, I don't use them so there was no point connecting it, plus this sound card does not have one and the on board is disabled in the bios mpw.

    It did silence it a little, there is a little less static on this creative card and I think it sounds a little cleaner but not as much bass in music.

    Buzzing thru Speakers When gaming

    My motherboard didn't have a option for disabling the onboard from bios, only the codec so I installed the sound card but windows isn't detecting it according to the driver installation so I am downloading a newer driver from their site to see if it will work.

    Thank you for the information, I will buy a cheap sound blaster sound card for $20 and see how that goes, if I still have the problem I will buy a new motherboard.

    All the power wires are installed correctly and I don't see anything wrong with the motherboard installation, It has spacers to separate it from the case.

    I think my on board audio card is faulty, whenever I am in a game the speakers buzz, it is worse when the volume is low, it changes in pich depending on what I am doing in the game, will a dedicated audio card solve this problem or do i have to buy a new motherboard, my motherboard is a gigabyte...

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    Yeah he said he will not be doing anything to do with gaming on it, he will just be downloading movies and shows and browsing the web.

    The CPU comes with heat sink and thermal paste on both builds. Also I think the stock coolers on the Intel are far quieter. I have a few 120mm fans lying around too.

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    I updated both the AMD and Intel build, I think the intel one would be a bit more future proof and if he needs games later on he can always add a gpu for cheap. AMD https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=198696&action=wish_lists Intel...

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    That's a different friend, this friend I am building a PC for doesn't have a desktop and his laptop just broke, I added the a6 to the build and I know its overclockable but the motherboard isn't really designed to be overclocked.

    Thanks, it helped allot, I am now stuck weather to go with the AMD with 8gb of ram or the intel with 4gb of ram but a nvidia 610 gpu.

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    He had a 5770 GPU with 4gb ram in it, I know my old dell with a Athlon 2100+ dual core could not play anything above 720p, 720p cpu usage was around 75%. GPU was a ati x1300 256mb in it with 2gb RAM. It was from 2007.

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    I know but i am a little worried since the AMD dual cores are a bit pathetic, my friend has a phenom II X2 and it can barely play 1080p video.

    Fractal Design Core 1000 isn't sold here in Australia, the Seasonic PSU costs $30 more, ill ask him if he wants to add another card, since he is on a very tight budget.

    So I should go with the intel and add a hd5450 to it.
  24. S

    Building friend PC, AMD or Intel

    I am building my friend a PC, the PC price comes to the exact same price, which should I get? The AMD would have better integrated GPU but a crap CPU but the reverse for the Intel, he will be just browsing the web and watching 1080p movies on it...

    Intel DZ87KLT-75K vs MSI Z87-GD65

    So they all have intel HD chips and realtek is only a codec? EDIT: So I have made up my mind, I will be going with the Intel board, since Protagonist and revin have had hands on experience with intel boards. Thank you for the help.
