Thanks mate. I'll get it then
Never done GPU overclock, due to issues in the past with pixilation and other issues. But GPU's might be a lot better at overclocking compared to the last time I tried.Do all you guys overclock your GPU?
I just wondered how much of an increase in FPS you see if you do.
From what I have been reading they say it's kind of a waste not to overclock as its a free performance boost with no ill effects when its set up properly.
If you push it too far you will get crashes and pixelation like you mention but you just back it off a little until that stops and that's your OC.
It is really easy to do as well, I've been playing about with it. You can just add 100-150mhz to the core clock without doing anything else if you want and get a little boost without even touching the power limit or voltage.
So far I have upped the power limit by 10% and put 150mhz on the core clock and 500mhz on the memory clock and am getting an extra 5 FPS on the Valley benchmark. I'm gonna have more of a play and see what I can get out of it adding a bit of voltage, the good thing is that MSI afterburner has a limit to what you can do so you should have no fears of damaging your card.
I'd give it a go if I were you, you might get lucky and get a great boost out of it.
Edit: Put the wrong settings i have at present
Well least you know you can do it and get a nice boost when you need it, but my 1070 runs every game I play fine.I ended up just keeping mine at stock anyway in the end lol
Looking at the CPU it is near the equivalent of a 2nd Gen i3, so although not great with a decent GPU it will run games in 1080p - Probably feels a struggle playing FM on it compared to more modern CPU's.. My laptop takes an additional 2-4 hours to complete a season compared to my main PC as the CPU takes so much longer to process in-between fixtures.What are the chances of a video card upgrade being enough to let me run a game like Divinity Original Sin 2 at 1080p at 30fps?
The 760/960 has become my focus after realising this, but preferably the 960 given they're less power-hungry.For half the money you could purchase a 960 GTX on eBay - Looking around you can pick one up for around £50 - £60 and they perform on average 15% faster than a 1050 and about 2-3% faster than a 1050TI.
Buying an M2 SSD isn't just about performance, yes real world isn't that much difference.Just beware that while SATA SSD vs NVMe speeds differ quite drastically in theory, you won't really notice, unless you're doing some heavy-duty video editing or data transfers. If you're using your PC for everyday and gaming purposes, the SATA SSD is the better choice imo (at least currently), as you can basically get a 1 TB for the price of a 500 GB NVMe.
I don't know if water coolers have improved since I bought mine, but I would stick with a decent air cooler.All parts ordered:
AMD Ryzen 2700x - 194.21 EUR (From Amazon.it no idea if flash sale or glitch but it's a crazy price last night and was back to 340EUR not long after my order went through!)
Asus Prime X470-PRO - 169.80 EUR
Gskill F4-3200C14D-16GVR RAM - 211.40 EUR
Samsung MZ-V7E1T0BW 970 EVO 1 TB - 211.83
I think the only final thing I might order is an All in One water cooler, should be good to go with the rest
