Forum Topic "Is it compatible?"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

Everything is compatible except you need a 120mm fan instead of 80mm, and 2 sticks of RAM increases performance. I would also suggest going with the 2600 non-X and upgrading to a RX 580.

cheezmeister 1 Build 0 points 4 days ago

If you want to save five or ten dollars on power, you could get an RX 590, which would open up your path to FreeSync in future. There are better deals on GPU's right over the horizon, so I think it would be a good idea to wait a few more months.

Forum Topic "Help me decide"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

Your assumption is wrong if I recall correctly. I believe GPUs can power monitors with only one in frame sync. I completely recommend G-Sync, especially at 1440p with a 1080 you might start to notice screen tearing at high settings. When I upgraded to Freesync, I knew I would never be able to give it up, and I've been stuck with AMD through every GPU and monitor sale since then. If you value your freedoms, get the IPS monitor, but I think G-Sync would provide a great gaming experience.

Nah I'm kidding. I know there are a ton of distros. It would make sense to add the ones available physically, however.

A couple of questions: Do you have a budget? What size do you want (my guess is one or two 27" for work) and that's about it! This would be a passing recommendation.

Interesting! I have 8GB RAM and my MSI board only lets me set it to 2GB. I think I got a very low-budget motherboard.

Forum Topic "Crossfire possible with RX 580 and 2400G?"

Whoa 8gb.... maybe that's due to the amount of RAM, but I have a B450 MSI board that caps at 2gb.

Forum Topic "Looking for USB Headphones with Good Audio Management Software"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 13 days ago

USB headphones have built-in DACs. This means they use their own drivers. There's no way to use built in audio drivers for USB headphones, as the motherboard's built-in DAC outputs analog audio, and USB headsets input digital audio. After a quick search, there are converters for USB headphones from S/PDIF connectors, but that doesn't help you because your motherboard doesn't have one of those either. You would have to get 3.5mm headphones with an external headphone amp. These ones are 50 ohm, meaning you might not need an amp depending how loud you want it. They would plug right into your motherboard, and since they take analog audio, your motherboard drivers would work.

Another option is soldering a 3.5mm connector to the internal speaker wires on your existing headphones. If you have not done anything like this before, I would not recommend it, as there is way too much that could go wrong. However, if you want to do that, just snip off the USB connector (the whole thing), strip the (hopefully) 2 exposed wires, and solder a connector from a sacrificial cable or headphone onto it.

Forum Topic "Crossfire possible with RX 580 and 2400G?"

cheezmeister 1 Build -1 points 13 days ago

Yes, but there would be virtually no performance benefit, as the maximum framebuffer the 2400g supports is 2GB, half or a quarter of the RX 580. It would pointlessly consume RAM. You can try it however, go to the BIOS and set IGP to Force and framebuffer to 2G.

Forum Topic "Selling 8 year old PC"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 14 days ago

Well you'll probably sell off of eBay faster if you're willing to split it up into parts, good luck getting rid of the case and PSU though. I think $250 (CAD) is a good price for those parts (if you don't have a GPU or hard drive).

Forum Topic "Computer help with linux"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 14 days ago

There is a community Linux version of iCUE. Not sure if it will work with AIO coolers but here it is if you're interested. NVIDIA drivers should be installed by default on all Linux distros with installers (i.e. not Arch and Gentoo). You will have to familiarize yourself with xrandr for changing video settings. Also they do make adapters for internal USB ports.

Forum Topic "Dell XPS 8930 450 watt PSU"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 20 days ago

I use a single SATA to 6pin on a GTX 570 and don't encounter issues. I think it matters more the power draw. The 1660 Ti has a 120W TDP, 75W of which is the PCIe bus. That leaves 45W between 2 SATA ports, which should be safe, as hard drives pull about 20W from the wall.

Forum Topic "New build won't boot/go into BIOS splash screen."

cheezmeister 1 Build 3 points 21 days ago

I can't see anywhere that this motherboard is ryzen 2000 ready. You may have to borrow a 1000 or A series processor to update the BIOS. I believe AMD offers a program wherein they will lend you a CPU to update the BIOS, look into that perhaps.

Forum Topic "don't know what to choose"

cheezmeister 1 Build 3 points 21 days ago

The main difference for SATA SSD's is not speed (these two are about the same) but write endurance. If you want something to last a while, Samsung's SSDs are tried ant true, combined with familiar customer support. However I can't say it's worth that extra chunk of money. The Micron one is a full $100 cheaper ($112 with Canadian sales tax).

Forum Topic "Are these good headphones?"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 21 days ago

Actually, I have a pair of cheap headphones very similar to these (sub-$40 Amazon parts) and I would say that the fit is not the best and the quality is hardly audiophile, but for the price, they could very well be a great choice. I say go with it. This pair has a self-adjusting headband which I can say from experience is more comfortable for a long period of time. Just be wary that 7.1 virtual surround may not work because drivers from cheap brands are hit or miss.

Forum Topic "Which AliExpress X79 motherboard should I get?"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 21 days ago

Ahm... I would say both of those parts are both equally Chinese parts that will break in a short period of time. Check if there is a Free Geek or other used PC parts store near you, or look on eBay and Craigslist for good quality used motherboards is what I recommend.

Heads up, Canada Computers also actually charges shipping on their price match, if they honour it at all. Memory Express is a much better store to shop from in terms of price beat.

Forum Topic "Dell XPS 8930 450 watt PSU"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 21 days ago

6+2-pin is just a cable size meaning it can go into 6 or 8-pin cards. The graphics card itself doesn't have a 6+2-pin slot, it has an 8-pin slot, but a 6+2 or 8-pin cable will work for it. The more important thing to look at would be whether his power supply has a cable for the new graphics card, as most 1050 Ti's are bus-powered.
