    The motherboard & CPU are both agreeable. That PSU is outrageous, though - you need to find something that makes more sense for your budget. Get a cheaper PSU and put the money saved toward a better GPU. Your GPU is too weak and the PSU is too strong. Consider something closer to 500-650W would be good. This will work with the 8320 + a...

    Oh, hey, it's Mr. Lathan!

    I would definitely do an RMA/return first... any kind of grinding noise could be bad bearings. It could also be a dying capacitor if it's more of an electrical sound than a grinding sound. Definitely do the return.

    As for the power supply: 680W should be enough for almost any setup. I'm not sure what hardware...

    The GTX 470 was a good card for its time and is still fine for the types of games you want to play. If he means the Athlon 6400, it won't work with FM2 and is pretty damn old. If he means the 6400 APU... I'd probably get something a little bit better, but that depends on budget. For your types of games you can definitely get by on an APU....

    Hey Arvy,

    That's a good question. 500VA should be more than enough to deal with a computer. In case you didn't already know, let's define a volt-ampere:

    Thanks for the kind words!

    We're actively working on version 3.5 of GamersNexus -- there are some plans to have a very comprehensive dictionary and section of the site exactly as you're asking for. It'll be a couple months probably, but I'm excited for it!

    Thanks for the suggestion :)

    Hey there, Arvy!

    Good question. I haven't tested the 212 X, so I'm going off of what I see on the specs listing. I'd imagine the 212 X would perform somewhere a little lower than the AR01 in our most recent benchmarks (the above image is dated).

  • Glad to hear you built a PC successfully! I know the feeling of everyone coming to you for help ;) You're always welcomed to bring their questions here.

    Is it POSTing if it's getting stuck before BIOS? Either way, I think I'd start with doing a barebones test. Strip the system down to:

    - Board + CPU
    - 1 stick of RAM
    - PSU
    - Case

    Take...

    Hey there, cmm76!

    I think we had some XPS 410s around when I still worked in the Dell lab :) Decent machine.

    The E6600 is still a decent CPU. A bit dated, yes, but decent enough for some games. Actually, a lot of games, just not normally the huge-mega-AAA-ultra-graphics ones. If you drop a 750 Ti in there, you'll definitely be...

  • Lelldorianx replied to the topic 'CORE PARKING for your processor intel or amd' in the forum.
    Very cool. I might look into running an article on this after doing some performance research. I very seriously doubt major games in gaining, but can potentially see this being useful in situations that require core-intensive tasks at random. Will do some benchmarks.

    Cheers for the great post! :)

  • Mantle actually just bypasses the DirectX API and reduces software-level overhead, so the side effect is that less CPU power is required to process more draw calls on the screen. This means that more compute power could theoretically be leveraged to draw additional objects, but the more likely implementation is that lower-end CPUs/APUs...

    Did you ever get your system finalized? What were the final specs? Have you played around with benchmarking yet?
