Building New Gaming Pc Rig

April 19th, 2018

Hi all! Im willing to build my new pc rig for gaming purpose and this is what i decided!
Please let me know if its ok to play all latest games =)
Updated Config :
Image
Price in usd : $ 725.65
Is the config good enough to play the latest games?
is it worth the price for the configuration im looking for?

Answer #1
It’s OK. Going one step forward (Core i7, Radeon HD 5850-5870) would add a few hundred bucks on the final price.
Answer #2
Looks good but don’t go skimping on the PSU! A cheap PSU can easily cause instability
as well as fry your components. Better go with Antec Earthwatts 650w or Corsair TX 650w.

Absolutely but if you can afford yourself spending a little
more replace the GFX with GTX 460 256 bit.
Answer #3
Get the CORE I7 930 2.8GHZ 8MB CACHE instead.
Answer #4
@ : How about a COOLER MASTER 650W EXTREME POWERPLUS PSU?
I cant afford the GTX 460 but i can afford the gtx 260,is it any good?

Coolermaster is not a quality PSU brand! Most of
their PSUs are of bad quality (Especially the extreme power plus series)

It’s not any better then the 5770 so stick with it.
Answer #6
The ‘Corsair TX 650w’ is quite good and not too expensive.
The GTX 260 is better than the HD 5770, but only by a tiny bit.
For that tiny bit it draws more power and runs hotter.

Who told you that?
http://www.techspot.com/review/109-geforce-gtx-260-280-versus-radeon-4850-4870/page11.html
http://ixbtlabs.com/articles3/video/rv770-6-p4.html the 260 is compared to the 48XX version, it beats it but not by a lot, so how would that make it better then the 5770.

You only made my point, ’cause a Radeon HD 4870 outperforms a HD 5770.
Perhaps you should read this:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5770,2446.html
And don’t tell me that “Tom’s Hardware” is not trust-worthy. Anyway, there are others, saying the same thing.
I’m not trying to pass myself as a big expert, but I know how to “google” and read.
Answer #9
I still say he should stick with the 5770,The 260 is slightly better
but the 5770 is more future proof (DX11)
Answer #10
What if i get the XFX ATI HD5770 850M 1GB DDR5 then later when i have saved up some money i get another one and crossfire it ? Whats your opinions?
Answer #11
The motherboard you picked does not even support Crossfire!
In fact no H55 ones do,You’d have to get a P55 one for that.
IMO CF is overrated,Just upgrade your card every 6 months/year
Answer #12
any good P55 mobo then? Here is the price list (pdf) in my country. Link : http://fastclick.mu/download_pricelist.aspx?docid=1
My budget is round 20 – 25 k ( The pricelist is vat inc.)
is the MSI P55-CD53 i3/i5 (LGA1156) good enough? I dont mind spending a lil more cause my config for the moment is round ~ 22 k
Answer #13

Assuming you buy a CF capable mobo, it is a viable option if you are tight on budget. Multi-GPU scaling (especially SLI) have improved a lot). However buying a stronger GPU (i.e. GTX 460) in the first place would be more preferable.
Answer #14
well a CF capable mobo would be an advantage to me budget wise for the moment… need help in choosing a different mobo.Is msi mobo any good?
Here is one i found :
MSI P55-GD55
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=1936
Answer #15
You should search for a MB that has 2 “PCIe 2.0 x16” slots.
That MSI board has only one.
Answer #16
It does have 2 x PCI-Ex16 in the specification tab.
Image

Answer #17
In the specs it says:”PCI-Ex16: 2″ and then “PCI-E Gen: Gen2 (1×16), Gen1 (1×4)”.
So you have two “PCIe 2.0 x16”, or one “PCIe 2.0 x16” and one “PCIe 1.0 x4” ?
I see now, in the picture (sorry I didn’t look earlier), that the board is marked with “Dual PCI-E 2.0 Gaming Design” and has 2 PCIe x16 slots.
So I guess the first variant applies.
Answer #18
Thanks for your help and all of you! really apreciate it =)
Now the other issue is choosing the psu. I could only find CORSAIR MODULAR HX 650W PSU which is quite expensive. Any other good brand? is 650 W largely enough?
Answer #19
Like first suggested, a Corsair TX 650w would be just fine.
650w is enough and the TX is cheaper than the HX, mainly because is not modular. I’m planning to buy this exact 650w CorsairTX model myself, in the next few weeks.
IMO Seasonic, Corsair and Antec are the most trust-worthy PSUs manufacturers (some may contradict me, of course ).
Search for a 650w PSU made by one of them that’ll fit your budget. After you settle on one model, search for a review on the web, see some test results and what others think about it.
P.S. You can do with less than 650w if you buy an efficient PSU, but a 650w one will leave room for some upgrades on the CPU and/or gfx card, in the future.
Another point for Corsair: they offer a 5 year-warranty service for their PSUs.
Answer #20
The Corsair CMPSU-650TX although still pretty good is pretty old and is not on par with today’s PSUs for features and price.
Some of the best 650W PSUs currently available under $100 are
Antec TruePower New TP-650
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371021&Tpk=TruePower%20New%20650
XFX P1-650X-CAH9
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207007&cm_re=XFX_650-_-17-207-007-_-Product
Rosewill Liberta 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182101&Tpk=Libertas%20650w

All of them are fully modular with the exception of the Antec TP-650 which is semi modular. Looking at brand names are stupid. Even Antec and Corsair make mediocre PSUs. If I were you I would try and get the TP-650.
Also, for your information that motherboard does have two PCI-E x16 slots but the bottom one is running at x4 (x16/4x). It wouldn’t probably mean much for a HD 5770 Crossfire or GTX 460 SLI. Around 5% performance loss at best compared to full 16x/16x or 8x/8x.

I agree, choosing based only on brand name is stupid. That’s why you have to search for some reviews before you buy. There are some bad Corsair and Antec PSUs (don’t know about Seasonic), no question about it.
But the chances of getting a bad PSU made by these guys are pretty low, compared to other manufacturers.
After all, between the 3 options you gave, you recommended the semi-modular one. Why? Because it’s an Antec one?
Answer #22
But the chances of getting a bad PSU made by these guys are pretty low, compared to other manufacturers.For what it’s worth I have a 750TX and it has served me well for a couple of years but the first one I received was DOA and had to RMA it. That’s what warranty and RMA are for.
After all, between the 3 options you gave, you recommended the semi-modular one. Why? Because it's an Antec one?
Nope not because it’s Antec. I recommended it because it’s from the new TruePower New product line and they absolutely kick ass in performance. Check out JonnyGURUs review of the 750W model. Only the cables you’d always use are hardwired anyway like the ATX24 and EPS12v so I don’t see a major problem with it

Answer #23
kind of confused for the moment, which is better? intel i5 760 or the amd phenom II x4 965? is amd any good? i know i have to change the board but still it ends up cheaper and i can spend more money on the graphic card
Is the amd any good in performance and gaming?
Answer #24
Is the amd any good in performance and gaming?
Not really. The i5 is clock for clock a lot faster than even the Phenom x6
Answer #25
Thanks D r e a M! This certainly clear my mind on what processor to choose.
After checking some reviews on the net, I decided to change a lil of my configuration, Is it any good and worth the price i’m paying for?
Answer #26
I’m considering building a new gaming rig in the near future, but looking at an AMD Athlon II X6 instead of Core i7. Better performance and cheaper.

Scratch on a smartphone

April 18th, 2018

Hi , I have a Galaxy , unfortunetly i had my screen got scratched and it became annoying on the screen. the scratches are like this : http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=38368612179866102067663591320741270189462n.jpg
How to fix it ? will a protector cover it and cover the annoying pixelisation ?

Answer #1
a protector definitely won’t fix it abnd might just even make it worse. The scratch itself won’t get worse, it might just be even more visible. If it’s really that big of a scratch to cause such an impact are you sure its a scratch and not dead pixels in the digitizer? If its really a scratch, then the only surefire way is a screen replacement

Is this a good enough cooling pad?

April 16th, 2018

I know its pretty cheap but just wondering if it will be good enough then putting on my lap/table.
http://www.microcenter.com/product/384664/Dual-Cool_Notebook_Cooling_Pad I like the design because its square with no weird angles.

Answer #1
It really depends on your notebook what size, and where are the fan vents located on the bottom?
Answer #2
It really depends on your notebook what size, and where are the fan vents located on the bottom?There is only 1 side vent that I feel hot air coming from and that is the left side with the heat sink grills like this. https://www.google.com/search?q=heat+sink+grill&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=0HlcUvHhBcLqrQGJsYDwDQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=621#q=heat+sink+grill+laptop&tbm=isch&facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=aTdME2-pCCNDrM%3A%3BL7y8GBm7m4QQmM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252F2.bp.blogspot.com%252F-Y8L7K38AVYk%252FT1X7ZAGcZjI%252FAAAAAAAAAuU%252FGg0F9yOO478%252Fs1600%252FIMG_20120306_094504.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fdontsurfinthenude.blogspot.com%252F2012%252F03%252Fcleaning-laptop-fan-and-heat-sink.html%3B800%3B510 My laptop is a 15’6 inch. I really like something like this simple, stylish, and helps with heat a little but its to much for right now.http://www.amazon.com/DefenderPad-Laptop-Radiation-Shield-Black/dp/B00BPY41ZU
Answer #3
Then, Yes if your just trying to cool your lap then that one would work fine. If you are trying to cool your laptop as well you might look into something different though.
Answer #4
Then, Yes if your just trying to cool your lap then that one would work fine. If you are trying to cool your laptop as well you might look into something different though. I just want the laptop heat to go down a little and not feel hot on my legs or uncomfortable to hold when I am on bed using it/not get even even more hot when its right on bed because today I put it on bed for 30 minutes without doing anything but converting videos and it was hot as hell when I got back.
Answer #5
In general, Any elevation of your laptop would cool it down while it is sitting on your bed. Like for me, I use a tray made for a laptop so that way it can breathe. Just make sure the vents aren’t blocked

Upgrading Ram

April 16th, 2018

Hi all!
I have a 780I motherboard current using DDR2-800 (2 x 2GB) of ram and I want to increase to 8GB. Should I get another (2 x 2GB) or get the (2 x 4GB) sticks? Will there be difference in timing and performance issues using (4 x 2GB) vs (2 x 4GB)?

Answer #1
you won’t see no difference between x2 2gb sticks or x2 4gb sticks. run them as dual chan and you’ll be fine.
first things first, check what your MOBO supports as max RAM & go from there. personally I’d get 8gb x2 4gb sticks. you could also get x2 8gb sticks & run 16gb RAM because they’re quite cheap but that’s up to you.
Answer #2
DDR2 @ 4GB is rare and expensive at $118 plus a stick, I would be saving the pennies for a real upgrade!
And could only work if you motherboard were compatible..
2 x 2GB sticks may be added and it will run in dual chan if, and only if, they are well matched..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%20600006042%20600006067&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20
Answer #3
It’s better to get 2x4Gbs sticks, cause it allows for more slots for future upgrades. Any performance difference between dual chan (4x2gbs) and quad chan (2x4gbs) will be negligible. Plus, if a stick fails, you would only have to test 2 sticks as opposed to 4.
Answer #4
Yes well I was just thinking of costs involved, considering it is an older 775 socket board and 8GB is it’s max ram according to the manual..
