Hi all i have went back in time to see how my old GT440 holds up against the likes of Dirt Rally and if you pick up one of these this video will show you what to expect from it.

Good afternoon,

I have need advice and support regarding to some #configuration for an PC which will be use exclusively for #simulations (numerical analysis) and will have installed only Linux software as operation system:

+ configuration of PC I prefer to be focused on #AMD;
+ operating system: #Linux (Ubuntu) 64 bit;
+ as video graphic card I prefer some video card from #NVidia (based on #Cuda), but other video graphic card is OK, if I can found drivers for Linux;
+ as much is possible memory RAM on higher frequency (not a must to be OC);
+ computer will running more time at the higher level of intensity, so #cooling is important (not water or other extreme solution);
+ #processor must have as many core is possible (I prefer the #RYZEN model);
+ for the case of PC I don't have preference, but is enough to support 1 SSD harddisk and 3 normal HDD (for RAID 0);
+ #network_card to be performed, with higher performance in data transfer (in a way in which I can add the 2nd, 3rd, ... PC to run solution in parallel processing);
+ budget for configuration must be around value of 2000Euro (it is not fixed, only as reference);

I waiting with very higher interest your feedback, remarks and suggestion based on my proposal.

Other proposal or configuration is welcome in condition in which will meet the scope: simulations (numerical analysis).

Thanks in advance to all community for support.

Kind regards.

Will overclocking your budget CPU increase performance?

Hey folks I wanted to bring you something a little different today. Originally my intention was to benchmark My very first gaming PC from 2004 and see how it held up..

Yes, this garish Half LIfe 2 inspired hatchet job was my pride and joy 13 years ago, sporting an AMD Athlon 64 CPU, 1 GB of DDR memory and the legendary 9800Pro - no not the re branded 9800 from Nvidia, this was ATI’s crowning jewel at a time where nvidia were pumping out monstrosities like the FX 5800.

Back in the day it tore through games like Half Life 2 and Counter Strike source and was looking not to bad in the behemoth that was crysis until something like this happened.

The motherboard - after 13 years of service - decided enough was enough and gave up the ghost. Now at this point there was 2 options, scour online and pay over the odds and see if i can find a working 754 motherboard… or give it the upgrade that I had planned to do over a decade ago and then take that a stage further by installing a modern GPU.

Option 2 seemed the best bet and after a hunt on ebay I managed to pick up fully working Intel 2 Quad Motherboard with a nice Q9400 for around about £15, the aging PSU that came with the case in 2004 was next to go and replaced by a corsair VX 450W unit again bought on ebay and barely used for £25. The 4Gb DDR 2 ram and HDD was pillaged from the old HP workstation I used for my £50 PC challenge built but can be had on ebay for a few pounds each.

The total cost of components? Around £45.

That only leaves the GPU. now we could go old school here. Stick in a GTX 8800 and build a cracking 2006 era PC, but in the spirit of creating something that could be used, I decided to take the advice strewn across most of my GTX 1050Ti videos…. Hundereds of comments telling me that the point of the GTX 1050Ti is that it turns an old or used PC into a viable gaming rig…

So lets see what happens, this system is similar in spec to the Q6600 £50 challenge build with many of the pitfalls of building with a prebuilt removed so lets see if this platform is the saving grace to what surely must be the most devicive new GPU currently on sale.

- CPU: Intel Core i5-6400 2.7GHz Quad-Core Processor ($172.69 @ OutletPC)
- Motherboard: ASRock H110M-HDS Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($37.98 @ Newegg)
- Memory: Avexir Core Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($47.92 @ Amazon)
- Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.33 @ OutletPC)
- Video Card: MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB ARMOR 8G OC Video Card ($199.99 @ Newegg)
- Case: Cougar Spike MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($33.99 @ SuperBiiz)
- Power Supply: EVGA 650W ATX Power Supply ($41.88 @ OutletPC)
Total: $583.78=542.68€
