Spent an hour playing cable ninja. Ended up with this for now.



Side fan throwing up air is a 250mm Antec tri-color on random mode so it makes a variety of cool colors.

Lighting is done via BitFenix LED aqua strip. It is pretty friggin bright too. That was the backlight for the LCD I was working on. Was being the keyword, the IC that connects to the LCD panel fried on me so it's dead project unless I replace that board and the ribbons to the panel itself. >_<

Sorry guys, server was flipping when 2 were created and now they both seem to have deleted.

Here we go again. Sorry for that.

I would keep the AMD 965 X4 for now, and see if it's holding you back once you replace the card. I'm still running my 1090T X6 I bought in 2010 as I can't justify replacing it yet.

As for old parts, they usually work their way into other PCs in my family or stick around as spares/tests for when I'm fixing other machines. You can get £50 for the 965 and £50-60 for the 6950 on eBay at the moment if you decided to sell.

So I'm considering doing a long awaited upgrade to my PC since I'm hopefully going to have a few bits of cash to spare. I currently have a Phenom II X4 965 and an HD6950. Both still perform great but games are requiring more VRAM than the 2GB I possess. I'm looking at the GTX 970 since it's £300 because I can't afford the upgrade path to a 980 (requires new PSU, and if I'm going down that route it'd be a complete new inner). Other option is a Radeon R9 but again for the one I want it might push my PSU requirements a bit too far, most require more than the 575w I have. Sticking with AMD I may as well see what the R9 3xx offering is like.

I'm aware the GTX 970 seems to have lied a bit about it's memory but I want something higher than 2GB and the card still seems very good. How much of a performance hit that 0.5Gb seems to generate I can't seem to find out.

Mainly just want it to max out GTA V, which on 1080 uses approaching 4GB. Not sure what the news is regarding the Ti versions of these cards to see if they sort out that memory issue.
  1. would the 965 still be fine with the GTX 970 or would it bottleneck?
  2. would it then be worth dropping the £80-£130 to get an FX-6350 or 8370? Bare in mind my longer term plan is to eventually switch to Intel.
  3. what do you do with old hardware? I could spend a bit more cash to turn it into a PC to sell but with the age of the hardware I don't expect to get much for it. Not even as a built system or individually, despite both still being good performers.
I don't do 4k gaming or that. Just 1080 and if I did have to upgrade stuff other than the GPU then I'd probably look to go down the route of a complete upgrade.

Yeah, depending on the pricing and final specs I may drop down to the 380X.

290X would probably be fine, but it would annoy me being replaced by a new generation within months :<

I say just go ahead and pull the trigger on a 290X. It's way cheaper than the 390X is gonna be, and it's overkill for 1080p.

Merry 2015 everyone

AMD 390X needs to hurry up, can't take my 5830 much longer.

until I can set everything up with an electrostatic discharge pad.
I have never used any type of anti-static device while working on computers and I have had 0 static discharge related problems. If you want to be super careful, I just touch the computer case before I unplug it form power. That will get rid of any static built up and as long as your not wearing wool socks and rubbing your feet all over the carpet you won't build up enough static to do anything.

And honestly, unless you are directly connected to the ground on a power outlet most anti static stuff won't do any good.

the admin access doesnt work like that, as far as im aware. if youre not using the same OS the files were created on, it shouldnt know what to do with admin access files.

Most annoying thing is that it's copied pretty much 99% of the stuff. The 1% of it is subfolders of folders that i don't want to have to trawl through. It should've just been a simple copy and paste.

The only Linux i have is Ubuntu on a live CD. I'm not sure if that would encounter same issues like not copying files because some permission somewhere shouts 'administrator access'.

Tempted to just try robocopy in an elevated command prompt

yeah ive tried copying a non primary hard drive/partition to another non primary before. not gonna happen. best to do it from a simple operating system. command line, dedicated hard disk tool OS, probably even linux.
