Help upgrade an existing gaming computer


Recommended Posts

Hello to all the friends,

 

This is the computer we currently have:

i5 9600kf processor

Z390 m gaming board
Gtx 1660ti 6g video card
16g 2133 mhz memory
550w power supply

 

Upgrade budget includes about 5000 NIS

Several highlights 

 

1) Several months ago Fortnite was working at a fixed 240 FPS and after updating Fortnite or Start dropping ... if anyone has a way maybe fix it maybe I can save this upgrade cost or cut back

2) We have a keyboard BLACK WIDOW and GPRO WIRELESS mouse

The child wants to replace it with an APEX PRO TKL keyboard and mouse VIPER ULTIMATE The problem is that it costs about 1500 together and it significantly cuts the upgrade budget itself ... the question is if our keyboard and mouse are OK will what he wants really make such a big change or is it just something negligible and better to invest it in something else

 

Thanks in advance to all those who meet.

It could very well be that following an update of the game the settings have been reset.

Fortnight is not a heavy game, on the contrary. Despite this even in Fortnight, to get 240 frames per second you have to compromise on the settings.

You should go into the graphic settings of the game and if it is on epic download to high or even medium and if it is on high then download to medium.

The game does not get heavier over time and if it worked at a high pace a few months ago it should work that way now as well.

 

Also in general, when new games come out that are really heavier, it is not customary to run and purchase a more powerful computer but to compromise a bit on the settings.

 

 

Because otherwise few people are able to differentiate between 120 and 240 frames per second. I guess if the falls are to the 60s area then it is visually noticeable and justifies an examination about the problem.

In the range of 120-240 the only reason to feel the drop is to see the "speedometer" - maybe it is better to turn it off (fps counter) and concentrate on the game and not the pace of the pictures.

 

* All things were said in all seriousness and without sarcasm.

 

 

As for the keyboard, if he wants to replace a keyboard that the other is cooler, turn around.

If he wants to replace it because he must have it better and more expensive than his friends have - Sabba (no Sabba, but a computer forum will not solve this problem for you) 

If he wants to replace it because the money is leaking from your ears and he worries about you and fears that you have no uses for it - turn around.

 If he wants to replace her because he thinks it will give him some advantage in the game - a waste of money.

* There was some sarcasm here

This is exactly what it is ..... I am of the same opinion .. that the difference of 0.4MS will not give him anything .. and that he claims that the keyboard is causing him problems or he is confusing the brain or that maybe he should just clean it and it will solve the response problems he is claiming That he has in certain buttons ...

 

As for the drops I saw what it really is usually it is stable and sometimes it drops to 60-90-0 right for a split second and goes up again.

Is there anyone here who can give some extra advice on things that can be tried to solve this?

Sure he tried to mess with the settings like everyone who plays this game but maybe there is some set of settings that might do the job best or maybe some particular driver?

I thought it was because he does live all the time and it affects but these drops exist even when the live is not turned on

 

The last thing I want is to just spend money.

 

To sum up about the keyboard and the mouse ... everyone agrees that what he wants compared to what he has will not give any answer beyond unnecessary spending of money?

In principle yes.

 Practically you describe it as having a keyboard glitch.

The computer is fairly new, the official importer gives this keyboard a two-year warranty, so if there is a real glitch, you should try to take the warranty. If they identify a real problem, they will replace it for you. 

It may need to be cleaned (you get a key-breaking device with the keyboard and clean around).

Especially if he eats at the computer. (Regardless, stop) 

I work at the computer and if a small screw falls to the keyboard and gets stuck between the keys it interferes with the keys working, it is not unreasonable.

Going down to 0 ?! This is really a problem. Again, if everything worked well half a year or a year ago, nothing needs to be replaced, what causes the problem needs to be found.

If, for example, a computer has an improper process that consumes 100% of the resources from time to time, it will also consume 100% of the resources of a more powerful video card.

 

In any case, as already said, there is currently a huge shortage in all the global markets of . This causes a delusional increase in ticket prices and 0 inventory in stores.

Most stores do not sell a video card individually but only within an entire computer. 

Even if you find a video card you will pay for it at least 50% more than the recommended price for the consumer and probably more towards the 100% more !!!

In Ivory, for example, a ticket that is supposed to be sold for NIS 2200-2400 is sold for NIS 4750.

It seems that what you are describing is also related to the keyboard problem. You have drops and when that happens he also notices that the keyboard is stuck.

It is to examine the nature of the problem. This could be a software problem. But I would not give up checking the temperatures of the computer components.

update Of a video card and even do a stress test and even if the problem occurs then it should be addressed. It could also be malware installed on your computer.

Isolated tests of the components :

OCCT software adopts the processor. You can register on Google, download from ocbase.com. 

Can give a snapshot about the temp, effort, power consumption and clock speed of the CPU (at how many megabytes it works). 

Apparently your computer should be overclocked. If this is the case without quality supervision and control it can also be a disadvantage.

If the computer is not overclocked then the effortless clock speed should be about 4.5, power consumption less than 90 watts and a temperature of barely 70.

(If yes then all data should be higher) 

 

The software also has room for the effort of a video card, can also check the temperature of the video card with effort.

If it does not work, you can run furmark software to test the temperature of a video card with effort.

 

 

Monitoring of the computer during the game :

First you can run the occt in monitor mode and then it produces a log while playing.

More successful but more complex afterburner, can perform full monitoring including the FPS and then you can see what really happens once there are drops.

In June everything will work out? The MWC 2021 exhibition begins with a Corona-adapted version

Instead of a grandiose mobile celebration in Barcelona - we get a relatively small event in Shanghai this week, and plans for a European comeback this coming June The MWC (Mobile World Congress) was the first notable technological event to suffer last year's coronation, with naive restrictions in the first stage, Complete cancellation of the physical event afterwards - and at the same time promises that next year everything will return to normal, when it is likely that at that point in time no one guessed or predicted that even in 2021 ...
