  2. No problems! That's what we are here for. :)
  3. Thank you for your reply. Yes i am waiting for a new Evga 650w g2 psu and I hope it will be ok.
  4. Yesterday
  5. Most likely it is indeed the PSU not being able to deliver the wattage that it advertised for. Or as you mentioned it could easily just be that you have a defective PSU or in the case it out of warranty it aging out. As PSUs do age over time and loses efficiency and it's potential output over time of it lifespan. Try going for a newer more higher grade PSU and see if that's helps.
  6. I recently upgraded my rig with a new EVGA gtx 1070 ftw, from a gigabyte gtx 960. When i installed the card the psu started making a relatively loud clicking noise (which was making before the upgrading as well, but lower), which i initially ignored and proceeded with testing the card. I specifically ran GTA V for about an hour at full settings with out any issues and smooth fps(but the clicking sound got louder). I then exited the game, tried to run Doom, but the game didnt detected my card. I exited the game, then tried to launch GTA again, and the pc shut down. I tried powering on the pc again and the video card didnt turn on and didnt give any signal to the monitor at all. I installed my previous card (gtx 960)and all went back to normal. I installed again the new card (1070) and everything was normal as well, and the pc powering on normally. What went wrong? I am suspecting its the psu which always makes that clicking sound when under heavy load, specially with the new card. I have ordered a new psu EVGA 640W G2 which i think it will be ok but im not sure if its the psu the issue. Also im not sure whether any parts got damaged or whether I should attend turning the pc on again, until the new psu is installed. I would appreciate any suggestions on what might gone wrong and how to resolve this. Thanks!!

  8. Looking at this build, I see a number of ways to cut costs and optimize performance without having to downgrade the CPU, which I wouldn't recommend doing. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-7500 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£190.99 @ CCL Computers) Motherboard: MSI H110M Gaming Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£59.69 @ CCL Computers) Memory: PNY Anarchy 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£39.55 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£43.95 @ Amazon UK) Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 470 4GB Triple X Video Card (£170.99 @ Amazon UK) Case: Aerocool Aero-800 ATX Mid Tower Case (£52.10 @ Kustom PCs) Power Supply: XFX XT 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£45.94 @ CCL Computers) Total: £603.21 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-01-21 14:26 GMT+0000 Firstly, I changed the CPU for the latest Kaby Lake version as the price difference is neglible, but you get a slightly higher clock speed and all the other advantages Kaby Lake entails, such as 4K Netflix. Then, I swapped out the RAM for an equally priced dual-channel kit which will ensure best memory performance in various applications and games. I reduced the cost of the motherboard by slightly downgrading to an H110 chipset, yes, it is microATX, but for a budget gaming-focused build this will not really change anything. Moving on, I decided to change out the GPU from the 4GB RX 480 to the 4GB RX 470, my justification is that performance difference between the two is generally less than 10% at 1080p, which I assume is the resolution you're targeting. Generally speaking, you should typically either go for a 4GB RX 470 for 1080p or a full step up to the 8GB RX 480 for 1440p. Either way, this adds up to a roughly £40 savings by itself. Finally, I changed out the PSU for a bronze-rated, non-modular unit. Yes, this will be a bit less efficient but at a price difference of roughly £30 I believe it is a worthy tradeoff. All of these changes together bring the total price down to just over £600 without sacrificing much in gaming performance. I apologize for the late response. I should really be more active in the forums.
  9. Another option you could have (depending on how much AMD will charge on these) is waiting for the newer AMD CPUs to come out. History says that AMD is the "bangs for the bucks" brand in CPUs so it might be worth waiting if you can.
  10. Yes I agree with the rest of the users. Wait for the newer AMD CPUs to come out and provided AMD doesn't jack up the price they will finally be AMD processors made to game on the budget. I am personally not happy with Intel CPUs' price marks (noticeably more on the higher end insanely priced E Intel CPUs).
  11. Now of days you don't even need to worry about Windows licenses given there actually quite interesting Linux distributions sure to please. Even Window users can use one of these with just a little helping hand on their side. Such as starting with compatible components known to have drivers for Linux based OSes. :)
  12. Looking for a Quality Custom Computer? Whether your looking for budget systems orientated starting at just around $500. Using well valued AMD processors and APUs to the top end gaming and workstations systems made to take just about anything thrown at them. You can let me know and you can leave the building of your system, installation of software, and set up to me. Receive your system ready to use, just plug it in and it ready for your uses! Contact me at or contact me right here on the forums for more information. All Payments are processed by the use of Paypal, proof of built internal and external hardware will be provided prior to shipping it off to the customer proving that the system was assembled and setup to their requirements. Finally since the customer will be in control of shipping charges he/she will has to provide shipping requirements (express/standard/budget/etc) then which I will quote for prior to requesting payment and starting the servicing.
  13. First thing I would do is backup that outlook database file. Preferably twice. That way there's no risk of losing all your emails. My question is... how is your emails connected? If you're using IMAP or Exchange you only need to go to the new PC and setup the email accounts. Then emails will automatically be retrieved from the server to the new system. Are you using POP3 or something?
  14. I want safe migration from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2016 on newly bought Windows 10 PC. A month ago, my daughter did the same task, but he got damage in their Outlook database (.pst) file. However, she is now able to access lost Outlook mailbox access again through the assistance of third party software i.e. Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair. But, I do not want any risk or mess with my personal and business emails.
  15. Download GPUz and check if it's detecting the GPU. If not, download the latest drivers and try again. What kind of performance are you getting in games?
  16. Elaborating on Sam's post. At $300, your PC won't be powerful enough to handle most triple-A titles adequately. The AMD A10-7860K APU is probably the best option when you're looking at integrated graphics options. You'll also be getting a fairly old platform with no support for NVMe SSDs and USB 3.1 Gen 2. Since you're looking to build your first PC, I recommend watching some youtube videos to familiarize with the different connectors on the power supply and where they plug into. The last thing you want is to plug the PCIe connector into your CPU power connector (unlikely, but I've seen crazier things done). Anyway, good luck and congratulations on taking the plunge!
  17. Earlier
  18. If you need an OS, I'd say go with a pre-built system. Otherwise, here's what I came up with. It's not gonna be great, but it should do the job. CPU - AMD A10-7860K APU Mobo - Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-H FM2+ RAM - 4GB Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3 Storage - Kingston UV400 120GB SSD Case - Rosewill mATX Case PSU - EVGA 430w PSU
  19. Im 13 have a facebook pc and want to build my own but on a very strict budget i know its fucked to ask but will some help make a pc part picker type list of componets for a pc around $300? anything helps thanks
  20. AMD's current platforms are all kinda old and lack features. With Ryzen on the horizon, I suggest you wait and see how it performs. The pricepoint will also be important ofcourse. But, if nothing else, at least you'll get a current-gen platform with good support for USB 3.0 3.1 and NVMe SSDs.
  21. Hmm... well it seems like the fact that you can use the computer the graphics card should be working fine. AFAIK the AMD FX6300 doesn't have integrated graphics, so you're definitely using the R460. Are the latest graphics drivers from AMD installed? Also, it may be worth checking. Is the additional power connector installed on the graphics card?
  22. Hi I'm not sure if this is in the right section but here goes, I built a new system just for YouTube social media and a few old games counter strike cs go and the original crysis and photoshop I seem to have a problem the gpu is not being detected by device manager, I have seen this sort of problem else where the gpu is in the slot properly fans are running, any help would be greatfully accepted, I have seen elsewhere go in the bios to enable pci e slot, I have also seen the graphics card should automatically be picked up Cpu Amd fx 6300 Cooler ZALMAN CNPS7X Mobo Msi 970 gaming Ram TEAM GROUP ELITE BLACK 16GB (4X4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C11 1600MHZ Gpu Xfx r460 2gb Hard drive 250gb Samsung evo 750 2 x 1tb for storage Psu Xfx 650w Pro Case Nzxt Source 530 8 x 120mm Arctic cooling case fans
  23. Since a vast majority of our builds were mid tier to higher end, and many geared towards workstations, we went the Intel route. If AMD Ryzen lives up to its promise down the road, we'll definitely have an AMD build in the mix. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk
  24. All the builds I have seen posted only have Intel CPUs, why isn't there any AMD CPU Builds?
  25. Don't you prefers windows 10? Sent from my 6039S using Tapatalk
  26. The i5-6400 should be fine if you're building a mid range gaming system. The only differences is clock speed so yes the i5 6400 is slower than the i5 6500. If you just need to cut costs, but want to keep performance, that power supply can be cheaper if you get a bronze or a non-modular unit. Also, you might want to pick up two sticks of RAM rather than one. Otherwise you will lose dual channel memory speeds.
  27. Also is they anyway to save a bit of money on this build like a cheaper CPU than the i5 6500 which is now currently £200 on amazon or motherboard? I thinking I might go with the I5 6400, is there much between the two CPU? The full build. Thanks for your help.
  28. Anyone has any comment about this product?
  29. I heard the GPD company is going to launch a brand new product later this year. The reason to launch this product is that some handheld game players are also the fans of laptop, and they are very interested at this laptop which is easy to type and carry.Also for some geeks they are also quite fancy this tiny laptop. Therefore GPD company is going to launch this product. The product is currently named "Pocket", meaning it is the laptop which can be put into the pocket. Actually, it can indeed be put into the pocket. It is slightly larger than GPD WIN, and because it employs CNC integrated color aluminum process,with extremely narrow frame with 7-inch screen design, also it has QWERTY keyboard, so that the overall layout is very compact and tiny. Here are the basic configuration of the product: CPU:8700 RAM:4GB ROM:128GB Screen: 7-inch IPS screen, full lamination technology, Gorilla glass 3 Battery currently: 7000mAH
