  1. Looking to replace my dead 7850 i think it played BF1 on medium fairly decently. I dont really want to spend the money for the 1060, im thinking the 1050 would be similar to my 7850? So its kind of not future proof for very long. Maybe i should just pay the extra $100. Not interested in 1050 ti as its only $50 difference to 1060 I also play Overwatch which isnt demanding Here are my picks: GIGABYTE 1050 2GB Asus 1060 OC 3GB

    This fixed it., It was either that or a bad OC. I found in the bios options for increasing the CPU power from 100% 120% 130% 140% for OCing. I changed it to 130% even tho i used asus MB auto OC you think it would of changed that itself. Enabled Spread Spectrum Works properly now, ty (Edit: there is still a buzzing noise in the sound when i play games though, from sound card being too close to gpu i s'pose)

    yeah something isnt right with this gpu, its like it runs out of mem

    the only slot left is directly above the GPU now. Its only when i play games that the buzzing occurs

    Can i put my sound card directly above GPU? cause im noticing a buzzing noise when playing games, wondering if it would stuff the gpu up being so close?

    Wait am i supposed to update driver from the Asus site or the geforce.com? Battlefield 1 is telling me geforce.com and that mine is out of date

    The GPU driver is upto date P8Z68-V This is what it says in the manual 2 x PCI-e 2.0 x16 slots (single at x16 or dual at x8 / x8 mode) 1 x PCI- e 2.0 x16 slot [black] (max. at 4x mode, complatible with PCIe x1 and x4 devices) 2 x PCI-e 2.0 x1 slots *The PCIe x16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 slot, PCIe x1_2 slot, USB3)34 and eSATA. The PCIe x16)3 default setting is in x1 mode

    Thank you. I having random freeze lag where the game stops for 1-2 seconds then returns to normal, ill have to look at my ram timings i think?

    Yeah both mobo cords were in. I got it working. I forgot I have another pci-e slot which i should of tried 7850 in 1st before buying a new card, but anyway the 7850 doesnt work in that either. The 1060 does however. So thats weird lol. Maybe the GPU fried the slot when it died idk. I had long time PSU problem with my old one. Ill still test if 7850 works on mums PC tho some time. Im happy i dont have to update the mobo/cpu/ram combo yet.

    u mean change the power cord running from psu to gfx? no, ATX let me research what this is i repluged the power cord going to the mobo, noticed the gpu card on light now stays on even with the pc turned off. Before it was only on when the pc started. still no display. Ive tried HDMI and the old big thing, The big thing works when i plug it into cpu gfx

    Alright, i just got the 1060, put it in annnnnnnnd..... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/ so now im thinking the 7850 isnt dead... oh wait! i forgot the power cord to the gpu, annnnnnnndd.... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/ I guess i will take both gpu to my mums and test them on her pc, see where i go from there, prolly a faulty mobo at this point. I just bought a new PSU corsair 550x, i was running BF1 on that for a few days and it seemed to fix all my problems i had with my pc, still has. but then thats when my gfx "died"

    What about this Asus 1050 ti 4GB I knew i said i wasnt interested in "ti" cause was only $50 diff to 1060, but didnt take the GB into consideration

    if elderscolls 6 came out in 3 yrs and it used an updated engine of fallout 4 would i be better off with a 460-470 with 4GB? Nevermind, ill just get the 1060 and sell it if i have to
  15. Hey guys. Ive posted b4 about this power problem under the name SPANKdMONKe. Cant remember password but anyway... When i turn my PC on sometimes it doesnt come on. My PC plug is in a 2 way safety adaptor, thats plugged into a 4 way power adaptor. to turn my PC on i have to put the 2 way adaptor half way into the 4 way until it gets enough power and comes on, then i can push the 2 way all the way into the 4 way. It feels unsafe, I can here the electricity static when i do this. I think last time ppl said it doesnt have enough power? Also, just recently my ASUS monitor isnt coming on. I really hope its not my monitor, but ive taken it out of my GFX card and put it into the motherboard input. Its working now, so maybe my GFX card? or maybe its the "not enough power thing"? My PC is abit old now, maybe June 2011 (predicting from my 1st post on here) but my GFX card is about half that old
  16. Ah ok. some more weirdness just incase it changes anything: Stuff is getting worse. I was watching youtube, screen goes black, monitor says no HDMI signal, it turns off but i can hear the sound stilling playing but it cuts in and out almost like a memory problem maybe? Sometimes the screen comes back and everything is fine but other times it feels so sluggish i just reset PC. Was watching twitch and typed in chat, it got so slow i was watching what i typed come in about 30 secs after i typed it. Still PSU playing with monitor/memory? just checking if ideas have changed... like typing on twitch, that cant be a gfx problem could it? thanks
  17. Still havnt bought it yet but Just thought of something, to check Asus Suite II... +12v is running at 12.1v +5v is running at 5v +3.3v is running at 3.3v So maybe an old MB issue...?
  18. Yea umart sucks for this. But if i bought from pccg and had to send it back id be paying for shipping still. Those XFX's look nice EDIT: i found a $99 SeaSonic 550W OEM V3 80Plus Gold (1yr warranty) on the Milton store Wouldnt that be best?
  19. Ah, i didnt know that.. cool Corsair seems more popular and i like the 3yr warranty Also wouldnt mind trying a "different" brand I tried 2 PSU calculators got 390W for one and 440W and 610W if i upgraded cpu mobo gfx I do like how the Seasonic is OEM, meaning its worth more as retail... idk, 20% more seems higher then the Corsair gives The seasonic psu i have now has lasted more then 3 yrs... Ill prolly get Seasonic :? EDIT: the ones Dasa mentioned arnt in my store (umart gold coast) Also i think my umart only gave my current psu a 12 month return
  20. So changing the plug to the wall, to a different wall inlet in my house fixed the problem up until now. Monitor sometimes doesnt turn on unless i take out the plug and drain the PC by holding power button down. Im gonna try a new PSU. Which of these do you think is better? $119 1yr warranty - SeaSonic 650W OEM V3 80Plus Gold PSU $99 3yr warranty - Corsair CX-500M Modular ATX Power Supply,80 PLUS Bronze, 120mm fan, 2x PCI-E, 6x SATA, 4 I would like to save electricity so Gold would be better right? but isnt 650W too much? i dont get that part.
  21. Its the end that goes into powerboard. Ive taken my GFX card out and its not arching anymore but i dont think its done that since it stopped working. I also tried my GFX in my mums PC that i made for her, the PC didnt even start up, not sure if its because her PSU probably isnt powerful enough (cant remember the Watts) or if GFX Card is dead. So i took it out and now her PC didnt start. Took out her power cord from PC, put it back in, noticed an arching sound and now it (her PC) works as normal. Ive had a couple random times when my PC just went black screened for 5 seconds then came back. this was when my GFX was still on my PC but not working. (maybe mobo or PSU problem) Im still uncertain as what to upgrade here, i guess GFX card, and if it doesnt work then i sell my old one and try PSU or Mobo/CPU? Would this be the logical way to go?
  22. ive never upgraded b4 so just wondering what u guys would do?
  23. Its playing up again already, My monitor isnt detecting the GFX card HDMI but it does detect Mobo gfx. The Pc turns on about 70% of the time without putting the plug halfway in. Should i get a Corsair HX-750i ATX 80+ Platinum 7yr warranty ($225) PSU 1st? See if that works? If it doesnt, ill look at upgrading mobo/cpu to ASUS h97-PLUS ($159) i5-4660 ($265) aswell. That seems to use the same DDR3 Ram that i already have so thats good. I do want to get Windows 10 so i dunno if that matters with h97-PLUS? Or i guess i could look for a 2nd hand mobo that i already have now (p8Z68-v) because i dont have a problem with my pc if only it would work properly.
  24. I cleaned out my PC, it had dog dirt and dust in it, was pretty dirty. It seems to be fixed now. I think cleaning the built up dust off areas specifically around the gfx PCB where solders and metal are close to eachother, probably helped the most. When i turn my PC on now it turns on maybe 97% of the time without that arching stuff. Before it was the opposite, 97% always arching. GFX card and monitor are also working.
  25. Yeah i just turned on MSI Afterburner and it looks like my GFX isnt working. Tomorrow i might undo PC give it a clean reapply thermal paste and all that. How do i know if its a MB/PSU/GFX problem? Do you think its time for me to upgrade MB/CPU/PSU? I thought the PSU was going to last me through 2 builds
