THIS is a power supply??
How bad is this $20 SSD??

    Apparently demand for those older CPUs is still high. I looked into upgrading my old i5 system to an i7-4790K and the CPU costs $200. $200 for 4C/8T and probably much weaker than the $120 3300X.

    I mean... You did a high end gpu upgrade on an already capable CPU, what did you expect with the gaming results?

    I just sold my 3770 and bought a ryzen 5 1500x and so far the switch to ddr4 and twice as much cache has been a huge improvement for only ab 50$ extra after selling my old parts

    However on COD Warzone on my 4770k im contstantly at 100% CPU usage , so its definately not fine, and I can barely even look at 4k video footage in resolve without it crawling along I mean 90% of games work fine, I can play at 1440p 60 or 1080p 144hz but some games / programs are definately starting to bottleneck my GTX1080 Unless my PC is just broken or something ... (or its just COD being shit)

    FvckYoutube'sCensorship UseAdblock時間 前

    My PC is stil a 4770k from 2012. Still good enough. Only reason I'm needing a new one is because the mobo is dying (dead sata controller so lost half my sata ports), though it's been like that for 4 years now. Maybe after this next upgrade to a 3960x I won't need another one for another 10 years. it's not 2000 anymore, pointless to get an upgrade every 2 years when it's only a 5% difference instead of 50-100% like it used to be. AMD/Intel are lucky the masses are still generally gullible and believe it when they say they still need an upgrade every generation and that that 5% performance increase will change their lives.

    idk why but my i7 2700K @ 4.6ghz (and yes it still does this at stock speeds) pegs at 100% usage when playing Overwatch. so, my computer is not fine bruh. btw i have literally nothing installed besides drivers, google chrome (which isnt running when i game), and Overwatch. so my CPU is just dead inside instead of Intel inside ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Im surprised you uploaded this. This is terrible. Its not a secret AMD and Intel doesn't want you to know unless that secret is older machines crash a lot. Im surprised this wasnt voted down to the ground due to clickbait and awful content. Is the moral of the story here that you can upgrade an older PC because i knew that already.

    SO I am still using this very old asus 11" inch laptop with cherry trail atom on board. And you know what? IT works even better than it used to. With all the windows updates, its not as sluggish anymore. Optimization does wonders. The only problem I have is the screen cable is messed up a bit from all the closing and opening, and sometimes you need to mvoe it back and forth for it to connet and display picture (sometimes itdoesnt show anything, sometimes there are horizontal stripes, something like a white noise on tvs). Unfortunately, ths model is so obsolete, price of spare parts is ridiculous. Cable alone costs more than the whole machine is worth. But I've gotten used to it, ill just keep using the pc till it completely gives up. Or do you guys know if there is another method of fixing it up?

    I've been a IT Tech / Linux admin for over 20 years, and I've never subscribed to updating a computer every 5 years. The Computer is only as good as the Operating System inside. I have a Dell Optiplex 790 with. Core I3 with 16 GB Ram, 500 GB SSD running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and it flies, still quick and very responsive. Now I don't run a super processor intense apps, but with what I do , I use it mainly as a Plex Media Server, it serves me well...

  86. Cottidae

    Cottidae時間 前

    The i7 3770k can't keep up with the most demanding games, but does just fine. I know because I've got one. Going to upgrade because I want a better PC, but the one I got performs fine in most cases. In fact, one of the reasons I want to change parts is because I want DDR4 RAM instead, and I want to upgrade OS, but I don't want to spend money on it twice, and no, I'm not going to use Linux. Although until I upgrade my PC, which will happen immediately after I get a job, I already got the money but lack the stability, I might consider a temporary switch to Linux.
