A unit with no reviews and a 30°C temperature rating? Probably crap.

like ImperiousBattlestar said the cx550 from corsair is a good psu.

The main problem to me is the Budget Deficit that is out of control. It's also a big problem for some European countries like my own (Belgium). To me any nation cannot have a good long term view if your budget is not in order.

As long as the economy is doing well and the US has a strong currency that is in demand everywhere there is no problem. Ofcourse these are the times to solve those problems otherwise when things are starting to turn it could get ugly very fast.

A chart doesn't really exist. If you want to learn this for yourself you have to research (read reviews) all the latest gen cpu's of amd and intel. When you know what you will do with this pc and you know your budget you can find out what cpu (and other parts) you will need.

If you want it to be faster you can just say your budget and what you plan to do and people here will give you a recommendation + why they chose that cpu.

they always list higher then needed because many people use crap psu's that are rated for example as 550W but in reality only give 450W max realistically (or less).

What psu is it? Is it the Corsair - CXM (2015) 450W from your lists? Then don't worry its a decent psu and plenty for the 2400g and rx580 combo (if that is your configuration).

The 650W should work if you have enough cables. Otherwise 750W/850W would be enough really.

In a start stop system the short stop times keep the engine and oil warm, retaining lubrication. Some implementations do not use a starter motor, eliminating concerns of starter motor wear. Mazda i-stop for example used in their Mazda3/Axela line (in Europe and JDM) uses combustion to assist the starter motor by sensing the position of the piston in the cylinder.

Yep and it was also small so they are not tracking em.

The December 18 bolide was much smaller, at just a few meters, and it detonated 25.6km above Earth’s surface

Even those small ones can cause huge damage.

Talking about asteroids did you read this?

Last December, the Earth got a Christmas present we weren’t even aware of. The second-most powerful asteroid detonation in 30 years struck on December 18, when a bolide exploded over the Bering Sea. The blast was an estimated 173kt — roughly 11.5x more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima

Have you tried to keep everything at stock first?

But According to asus forum.

code 00 is caused by three things, a faulty psu, motherboard or cpu.

There are other things that can cause code 00 like bent cpu socket pins, corrupt bios, failed memory training

Components that can have rgb are cpu cooler, gpu, mobo, ram, ssd, psu, fans, case and rgb strips (and even other crazy stuff like chair, headphone, ...) .

Some parts can be synced together with 1 piece of software but others need their own.

Just google rgb pc build and you will find plenty of examples.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1050Ti to 1660Ti"

  • 4 months ago

Personally i would change that psu anyway since its a bit crappy. Depending on your budget minimum for something like https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Q7L7YJ/corsair-cx-2017-450w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-cp-9020120-na .

Upgrading from a 1050ti to a 1660ti will be big since the 1660ti is twice as fast.

The i5 is still a great cpu and bottlenecking depends on your resolution, framerate, settings, .... . Any CPU can bottleneck any GPU under the right circumstances.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1050Ti to 1660Ti"

The reason you can't find DDR4-2133 Mhz Kingston is that you used a mobo in your list that can only use DDR3.

Is upgrading worth it? Only you can answer that really. If you are not happy with the current performance of you pc then it might be worth it (depending on what you do with this pc). But if you are happy then why upgrade?

You can't really screw up since the psu cables go in one way. Just always use the cables that came with the psu and never mix cables from other psu's.

Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W is also a great psu.

Ofcourse the 2700x is a great choice for streaming so no problems here ;)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How Much Wattage Do I Need for My System?"

A good 450W/550W psu would be more then enough. Also don't use psu calculators they are not really accurate.

In case you want to change to a new psu what is your budget for it?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First time building a desktop, have a lot of doubts"

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

I would really recommend to change that psu to something like a https://es.pcpartpicker.com/product/zBfmP6/bitfenix-formula-gold-550w-80-gold-certified-atx-power-supply-bp-fm550ulag-7r for example. The seasonic bronze in you list is old and should be avoided.

You could also drop the cpu to a 2600x because in gaming at 1080p the difference between a 2600x and a 2700x is only 1.6% while the price difference is 100 euros https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Ryzen_5_2600X/18.html . Is 100euros more really worth 1.6% more performance? You have to decide.

SSD in your list is great.

Building a pc is very easy ofcourse if it is your first time can be stressfull. Just watch some good youtube vids and take your time to build it.

Bios updates are very easy these days. When your pc is build and windows installed + all the drivers just go google (if using that mobo in your list) type in B450-A PRO and the first resulate will bring you to the page of that mobo. Then support then bios and download the latest bios to your empty usb. Unpack it and restart computer. Go to the bios find the tool to install the bios and normally things can go automaticaly from here or sometimes you have to point to the right bios file. Then wait for install and thats it.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a proprietary audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from an HDMI-compliant source device, such as a display controller, to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device.

Nvidia gpu drivers also come with their own audio drivers (same with amd). If you have a monitor with speakers plug the hdmi from monitor to gpu and and make sure the volume is on and thats just how it works.

Build looks good to me.

Rtx 2070 or 2060. The 2070 is on average 18% better then the 2060 so is that worth $100 more? Thats something you have to decide.

For $200 you can get an rx580 for example https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Yybkcf/xfx-radeon-rx-580-4gb-gts-xxx-edition-video-card-rx-580p4dfd6 or gtx 1060 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9FKcCJ/asus-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-6gb-phoenix-fan-video-card-ph-gtx1060-6g but thats not that big of an upgrade really (23%-27% according to https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/radeon-rx-470.c2861).

But maybe it is for you so thats something you have to decide.
