Windows 10: upgrade suggestions for a GA F2A88XM D3H+
upgrade suggestions for a GA F2A88XM D3H+
Hello I have an AMD A10 6800K 4.1GH quad CPU and a EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost Superclocked Nvidia Graphics Card (2GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0, 192-Bit) Graphic card.......Have 8GB RAM, already fitted an SSD to speed up startup and certain file handling.
would appreciate some ideas about my upgrade path...mainly for gaming..The CPU seems the obvious least expensive route...but not sure if I can overclock the graphic card or if it's worth it, it is described as superclocked !!!
And your budget might be...?
The obvious upgrade would be the graphics card. I believe that your 650ti doesn't use a PCI-E power connection. Can your PSU provide any? I think that a better card would probably require one. There are some GTX 950 variants that don't require additional power (eVGA lists them as "LP", presumably low power), but it's not clear that they are enough better than a 650ti boost to justify a swap.
was looking at a A10 7870 coming in around £100 which seems good...or someone suggested an Athlon x4 880k which is cheaper....the 7870 is meant to have a noisy fan !!!
i mentioned overclocking the graphic card....any comments on this
I have recently acquired a Radeon RX480 card. It only uses one 8-pin PCI-E VGA power connector unlike my previous GTX 970 which required two: 8+6 pin. Performance is roughly equivalent to GTX 970 and sometimes is even better (DX12, Vulkan).
Sorry don't see how this helps...
RX480 is a better card than GTX 650Ti (at least I think so) and it's a good best-bang-for-the-buck card.
Thanks, I was hoping to see if anyone new if I could or should oberclock my card and if a cpu upgrade would be a better cheaper choice...
You can probably overclock the card above the factory setting, although it may become less reliable. I doubt that there's a lot to be gained, though.
I also doubt that a CPU upgrade would help gaming much. I'm not a gamer, but supposedly games tend to be more GPU dependent than CPU dependent.
I have the oddest question about headphones. I have a pair of USB Logitech headphones w/mic. I had purchased them with the intended purpose of working for a computer tech support company at the time. The job fell through. I did later on use them...
Looking at budget approx £500
need something at college level, for web design Unity projects etc. quite happy with Non Intel CPU if gives better price / performance. have heard that latest laptops have HDD's that are difficult to replace....but...
Hello. I want to disable Windows Defender as I have feeling it's eating a lot of my memory from using a lot of resources, or whatever, so I need to download some light free AV... do you have any recommendations? Maybe Bitdefender? Anyone using that...
I was looking at a video on youtube, didn't do anything, all of a sudden the sound goes out. I make sure nothing on youtube is muted and it wasn't. So I right click my "SPEAKERS" icon (I'm wearing headphones) I click SOUND, then I click the SOUND...
