Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Thank the lords I've had a post!! I might of broked a system fan header but other then that, I'm all good to go! I feel so acomplished

DIY-BG01 from DIY PC. I got the gpu installed after reinstalling the mobo. Now I just need to finish building it.

Forum Topic "I need help with installing my GPU!"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Reinstalling the mobo, everything fits fine now. I gotta finish building later today. I hope it will post but highly unlikely comparing to the amount of things I probably already broke. Ill update you!

Forum Topic "I need help with installing my GPU!"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Expect that was my issue. They were not lined up with the holes. Yet the IO looked fine. I had to push on the mobo to make them line

Forum Topic "I need help with installing my GPU!"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Alright. Ill go ahead and reinstall the mobo. Should I be using all the standoffs available? Installing the mobo was the hardest part for me so I definitely did something wrong there.

Yes I do plan on upgrading to 2 sticks of ram eventually. That is why I didn't go with 2x4. Thank you for noticing though!

Yeah, I did realize that I was overspending on the toolkit but that was after I actually bought it. Plus I already have all my parts so now I cannot put money in to upgrade one of the parts. I do really like the toolkit though. It's my style.

Forum Topic "Any tips before I build my first build?"

Ashark submitter 2 points 5 months ago

Yeah, that's the reason why I picked it up lol. 1. It looks super cool 2. It has the bendy thingy 3. It is magnetic

Forum Topic "Any tips before I build my first build?"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Thank you for the advice dude! The reason I picked up the toolkit was that I just love the look and I won't ever need anything else again. Does the PSU have to be plugged in when I touch it? Also, can I still touch the case even when parts are inside? Just want to make sure before I do something wrong.

I plan on adding another 8 gig stick of ram later. Right now, I need to keep costs low. Let me see if I can find a pretty good & cheap SSD for 250 GB. Thanks!

Thanks! I'm gonna go ahead and get the RX580. The lower price and higher VRAM really makes me feel more excited about it. I found a few things online saying that the RX580 performs better in DX12? Is that true because that is a major thing that I would prefer!

I am still interested! Has your item been sold yet? Just sold my laptop. Gotta wait about a week or two though till it gets received by the customer and payment is received.

Yeah, I saw that earlier. Thanks for offering! But I need someone to hold it for 1 - 4 weeks. I need to sell my current laptop first. Thanks anyway!

Forum Topic "For Sale: ASUS FX504 with upgraded ram!"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Well, I'm trying to save for a PC and adding a SSD defeats that purpose but on the other hand, it has a SSHD and on ebay other same laptops with 8 GB ram are going for $550 with shipping excluded. So, I think this is a good point. The only same laptop on ebay right now cheaper then mine is going for $500 but that is auction with 60 + bids and 8 GB of ram.

I currently work with a ASUS FX504. 8300H CPU with 16 GB of ram. 1050 2 GB. What lets me down the most is the 2 GB VRAM. I need to focus on the GPU without bottlenecking the CPU. Before adding 8gb of ram into the system, I was using Xplane 11 with 8gb of ram. I kept on maxing out the 8gb.

Forum Topic "Gaming build for around $800 (Primarily Xplane 11)"

Ashark submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Now here is the thing, I plan on upgrading the ram to 16 GB eventually after I build it. I get the higher ram speed but shouldn't I just stick with 1 stick for now? Thank you for the info on the CPU. Will probably go with the 1600. Do I really need the SSD? I feel like that might be of my lower priority as I cannot go above my budget at all. the ADATA - Ultimate on the other hand as I look at it now, might be worth it but is it actually worth it? And what about the motherboard? Is it worth it to go below an X370 (I think it is) and get a B350? Thanks!

  • Don't need such an expensive and powerful CPU for web design and email checking. This should work fine.
  • 8 GB ram is more than enough and unless you play games or do really intensive editing and such, you don't need 16 GB.
  • The case and Optical Drive is really just opinion. If you want a better case or don't need an optical drive, you can change that stuff.
  • The GT 730 I picked out has 2gb of VRAM and is better than the GT 710.
  • The Crucial MX300 has a 2.5" form factor and an M.2 form factor. Its really your choice and I have not done any research on it but the M.2 might be a bit better.
  • 450W is more than enough for what you will be doing and the parts.

Forum Topic "Laptop vs pc NEED ADVICE"

Ashark 1 point 12 months ago

Considering the prices of GPU and RAM, the fact that you don't game a lot on it and that you like the movability of a laptop... Just go with a laptop. The 7700HQ will most likely outperform the 1600 (have not done research, can someone confirm?) and buying a good monitor can get a bit pricey. Your best bet is to just get a laptop.

If you want, you can get a GTX 1070 for $399 (I think) from Nvidia themselves. They are founders edition but they are white and you can even get a GTX 1070 ti or 1080 for the price you are paying for that EVGA 1070.
