Mainly Escape From TarkovI agree wholeheartedly with what @Darkbreeze has been saying but just out of curiosity, what kind of games specifically are you trying to get more FPS in? That could be a factor as some games a really dependent on CPU performance, while others you will gain more with a better GPU.
I read your post on PSU's and I know you were talking good about the Seasonic PSU's. What do you think about me potentially upgrading to aYou did the right thing. You were past thermal spec so there was no reason to continue. Once you pass 80°C, the test is done. There is no point in testing any further until some kind of change or upgrade is done that might affect thermal performance.
Were you overclocking or was that thermal test done at the stock configuration?
Dsymborski is right as well, that PSU is definitely a problem in the overclocking discussion. At some point you will definitely want to look at replacing that old CX with a better unit, even if it's just a newer CX which are much better than those older ones but still not what we'd call great.
It's an excellent PSU that you can happily use for a decade. And if it doesn't last a decade, SeaSonic will replace it. You can overclock the bejeesus out of anything with this PSU.I read your post on PSU's and I know you were talking good about the Seasonic PSU's. What do you think about me potentially upgrading to a
Seasonic FOCUS GX-750
Would you recommend any of those over the Seasonic?Agreed. That is a good PSU. But then again so are a lot of PSUs. If you can find an EVGA G2 650-750w (Avoid G1, G3 and G5. Well, G3 isn't HORRIBLE, but it's got it's own problems.) or an RMi/RMx or HX Corsair unit, or a Super Flower Leadex II or Leadex III or Antec High current gamer gold, those are all good choices as well.
IMO, the EVGA G2 750, Corsair HX or RMi or Super Flower Leadex II units are probably a little better than the plain Jane Seasonic Focus models. Now, the Focus Plus models are probably on par with those and the Seasonic Prime units are exemplary.
So after getting some of this new stuff, I started getting some weird bsod's but I eventually fixed it but now, I'm not sure why but my computer will randomly shut off and then once it's off itll power back on but not quite boot as in it doesn't do a single beep. And it's a constant cycle. I solved it last time by unplugging everything except the psu cord and it booted the last 2 times I did it. My Cpu Temps are fantastic. I'm not 100% sure about my gpu Temps. Anyways I tried doing the previous fix and it wasn't wanting to boot. What's wrong with my pc?Good questions, but, questions that are FULLY dependent on what your actual budget will be for everything that you need as well as whether you are ONLY going to be changing the CPU, motherboard, memory and graphics card?
Also, it very much matters WHEN you will be doing the upgrade, and I don't recommend even LOOKING at the prices or options until you are within about a week of being able to pull the trigger because market pricing, sales, diminishing availability of last gen hardware, and a variety of other factors can have a tremendous effect on the cost of a given build or whether it is even still possible to do with the hardware outlined if it becomes unavailable, in as little as a day or week, but certainly if we are talking several weeks or months out. In other words, here today, gone tomorrow, has never been more true than it is when talking about the prices and availability of computer hardware. Best to wait until you have the funds and are fully ready to pull the trigger.
