What kind of games, resolution and refresh rate are you after?
It wouldn't matter even if you replaced the PSU, since this appears to be a slot limit and a 1050 lacks a PCI-E connector so it couldn't draw more...
Looks like you're not going to fit anything longer than the slot and if it can't take a PSU it'd be something like RX 550, 560 or 1050, 1650.
You might find this interesting, if you haven't seen it, what he says about the coil types has been true for me:...
You might want to check how much difference it makes between a 3900X and 5900X, since if it's a lot faster in your tasks it could be worth the...
The power consumption makes it a no brainer really, BFV is the worst example: 170 to 110 for the same fps :o
Can you run a benchmark like 3d mark to check scores?
What's the SSD?
I assume you've checked temps, etc?
Speed of the memory?
If you use the second (PCI-E gen 3 or SATA) M.2 slot, the B550 manuals both say SATA ports 5/6 are disabled. It doesn't specify if using a...
Zen 3 + X570 has enough lanes to run 2 m.2 slots. I'd assume you were reading about a board with a different chipset.
A 3060 Ti or 6700 XT can do this, that's as cheap as I'd want to go if playing games at 4K.
Pre-builds with this spec are around £1000-£1300.
Newer games will need to be on a PCI-E M.2 drive, not a SATA SSD (see: Microsoft DirectStorage).
Some are for 1x slots, some are for 4x slots. If you have a high-end atx motherboard you should have a few 4x (or a 16x) you could use.
It sounds more like the BIOS has a problem (did you update it?), or the CMOS is getting cleared or partially cleared.
Generally speaking, older games will rely more on single core (or thread) performance (Ghz is relevant to that), but you shouldn't make a decision...
If you were doing something that used the extra cores then the 3900XT would destroy the 3600. It could complete some workstation tasks in half the...
What is it replacing?
This is very important, do NOT buy a 1050 Ti!
Your 290 is faster than even the 1050 Ti's replacement (GTX 1650).
The 3500X is a decent CPU, but...
I would buy a much cheaper motherboard and get a second SSD (500GB-ish) just for the OS and desktop stuff.
Providing it isn't an eps 8 pin because they're not pin compatible
Intel just called, they want their CEO back.
