• Do you think that gaming mice are unnecessary?

    I wasn't planning on getting one or anything, I was just wondering if you actually need a mouse just for gaming.

  • Where can I find the value of this GPU?

    I tried searching on Google and I couldn't find the same model. It's a PNY GeForce 8400GS DDR2 256MB card. It has a metal fan, if that helps. I would upload a picture if I could but it won't upload.

  • GTX 1050 or 1050Ti better?

    Best answer: The 1050ti is better. Both use the GP107 Graphics processing unit that's designed by Nvidia. BTW, Nvidia contracts out the production of the GPU to Samsung, not TSMC. The GTX 1050ti uses the full GP107 processor with 768 CUDA cores. The GTX 1050 uses a cut down version of the GP107 that has only 640 CUDA... show more
    Best answer: The 1050ti is better.

    Both use the GP107 Graphics processing unit that's designed by Nvidia. BTW, Nvidia contracts out the production of the GPU to Samsung, not TSMC.

    The GTX 1050ti uses the full GP107 processor with 768 CUDA cores. The GTX 1050 uses a cut down version of the GP107 that has only 640 CUDA cores active. The reason for this is not all GP107 chips that are made would run stable with all 768 cores active. Instead of throwing the lesser quality ones away, they reuse them in a lower tier product.

    The GTX 1050ti also has 4gb of Video Memory while the GTX 1050 only has 2gb of Video memory.

    The GTX 1050ti is 15% faster than the GTX 1050.

    Both cards consume about 70w while gaming. Which should make sense because the lower binned/quality chips need more power to run and the GTX 1050 has a higher clock speed.

    Processors are made on silicon wafers, then etched, then cut. The quality isn't 100%. Chips that aren't as good leak voltage, thus needing more voltage to run correctly. However these leaky chips will run fine if cores are cut out. This is how chipmakers compensate for bad yeilds.

  • Buying a used gtx 1060 3GB or a new gtx 1050TI 4GB?

    Best answer: The 3gb GTX 1060 was only moderately popular for mining. If the seller has a bunch of cards like a GTX 1070 or GTX 1060 then he was probably mining with them. If it's just a single card by some yahoo on Craigslist then he probably wasnt mining with it. We're not quite at that point yet where miners are... show more
    Best answer: The 3gb GTX 1060 was only moderately popular for mining. If the seller has a bunch of cards like a GTX 1070 or GTX 1060 then he was probably mining with them. If it's just a single card by some yahoo on Craigslist then he probably wasnt mining with it. We're not quite at that point yet where miners are selling their cards in droves because mining is still bringing a profit to those people. Miners primarily choose the RX 580 and RX 570.

    Personally I would go for the 3gb GTX 1060 because it's much better. Most people overestimate the GTX 1050ti because it has 4gb of Video RAM. What they forget is the GTX 1050ti and GTX 1050 use a much smaller GPU that's meant to be a low power solution for a mini ITX build or a prebuilt PC. The 3gb GTX 1060 has 1152 shader cores but the GTX 1050ti only has 768 shader cores. The 3gb GTX 1060 is nearly 80% faster than a GTX 1050ti, and the 6gb GTX 1060 is nearly twice as fast as the GTX 1050ti.

    The only drawback to the GTX 1060 is it needs a 450w power supply but the GTX 1050ti can get by with a 300w power supply.

  • Need help with graphics card compatibility?

    Best answer: Wow, I had that motherboard at one time with an e8400. However it was a buggy board and I ended up returning it because it had a bad memory controller.

    Best answer: Wow, I had that motherboard at one time with an e8400. However it was a buggy board and I ended up returning it because it had a bad memory controller.

    There will be no compatibility issues. All PCI-Express x16 slots are physically the same and all versions such as 2.0 and 3.0 are forward and backwards compatible. Graphics cards never use up all the bandwidth anyway so there isn't much to worry about. A high end GTX 1080 only takes a 1% performance hit in a PCI-Express x16 2.0 slot. The GTX 1050ti is not as fast as the GTX 1080 so you would see no performance loss.

    The only thing you have to worry about when upgrading a graphics card is if the power supply will handle it and if the card can fit in your case. You probably have a large enough case since the board is 12" long and GTX 1050ti cards are too big. 500w is more than enough to cover the GTX 1050ti. It should be an easy upgrade, just as long as you uninstall the old drivers, then install the card, then install the new drivers. Easy.

    The GTX 1050ti uses almost 75w while gaming.
    Your system would support a GTX 1060 (that uses about 120w) if you have a 6-pin PCI-E power connector. 500w is more than plenty

  • How do I know if my computer mouse is a 3-button mouse?

    Best answer: Does the wheel click when you press it?

    Or you can test it by pointing the mouse at a link, and pressing the middle button. The default action for the mouse wheel button is to open the link in a new tab.
