    Upgrading PSU

    So I've been doing some reading and research, and I'm looking at a power supply that says it has an eps connector for cpu, but the connector on my board is atx12v. Can I use an eps connector in an atx12v slot without issue? Also, what connector do fans and lights usually use? I have lights in...

    Upgrading PSU

    I do in most games. Some newer games are too heavy, fallout 4 is one, and dying light I have to play on lowest settings with 1280x720 resolution. But it runs well with most games out there.

    Upgrading PSU

    Cool! Thanks! So far my current CPU (AMD FX-6300) has been mostly solid for MOST games out there today (stumbles on Fallout 4, but could be because of my GPU more than anything.) but just looking at my options and you guys are a great resource!

    Upgrading PSU

    Cool thanks for your input man! I just wanna be %100 sure before blowing cash. What would you personally recommend? Getting a better AMD CPU, or getting a new mobo and an Intel CPU? Price for power in mind.

    Upgrading PSU

    Cool, I wasn't sure if it was a huge difference from the 8370 or not. I'm unsure at this point if I should save up for a new mobo and Intel CPU or just get the 8370. It would be less hassle and cheaper to get the 8370. What to do what to do haha also, thanks guys for your help! It's appreciated...

    Upgrading PSU

    I had messaged the makers of my mobo and asked if it can handle the AMD FX-9590 and he said no as it wasn't on the CPU compatibility list. Would doing it anyway harm my mobo? It's the same socket type, but supposedly not supported. Is this dangerous? EDIT: ALSO, this is my supported cpu list...

    Upgrading PSU

    Alright! I'll wait it out and see! How good is the AMD FX-8370? Being the strongest CPU I can currently use, is it good enough to handle anything I can throw at it? I'm trying to get the most out of my machine before having to fight with a new mobo installation lol

    Upgrading PSU

    I did some more research and found out that the strongest CPU my mobo can handle is an AMD FX-8370..... Would upgrading this AND my GPU be a good or a bad idea? I even considered getting a new mobo and rebuilding my whole machine.

    Issue with my new keyboard

    I actually did end up popping the key off with a guitar pick, got a million of em laying around. It is that kind of keyboard, had a loose rubber piece in place, by loose I mean I could just flip the keyboard upsidedown and it would fall out lol I realized it is just poor design. I might try your...

    Issue with my new keyboard

    Hey guys! Me again. So I went ahead and ordered the ibuypower PC i mentioned, and it works great! Although, the enter key in the center of the keyboard is super touchy....... barely touching the key counts as a press! Did I just get a faulty keyboard or is there an easy fix I'm over looking...

    Upgrading PSU

    Cool thanks! I would probably go with a 600 or 650 just for some more room or upgrades, is it possible to put a power supply that's too much for a system?

    Upgrading PSU

    That taking the other parts into consideration right? The AMD FX-6300 CPU, the 8GB of DDR3 RAM etc.? Just making sure, I'm not familiar with PSUs at all! Lol

    Upgrading PSU

    Cool thanks! So let's say, an Nvidia GTX 1080 or something like that, a 600w power supply would suffice?

    Upgrading PSU

    So I recently ordered a new PC, I'm waiting for shipping right now. It's the iBuyPower WA563R7. It comes with a 500w power supply, and I was wondering what a good upgrade would be. I plan on adding a better GPU in the near future, what would be a good upgrade? Thanks guys! Here's a link to the...

    So there would be a noticeable difference between the two? If this PC comes with ddr3, can the board most likely handle ddr4?

    Thanks! That's good to know! I will also be needing a DVI to HDMI converter because I'm gonna be using a TV. And a good wireless adapter, the PC doesn't have one built in. What's a good adapter that's not too expensive, but can handle my 70mbps connection? I wouldn't wanna buy one that doesn't...

    Thanks for the links and info! Much appreciated! :D is DDR3 RAM really different from DDR4 or DDR5? Is there a night and day difference in performance? And also, would this board support DDR4 RAM if I went out and bought some? Thanks!
