I have a question, if I get and install a new GPU and it's from a different manufacturer than my previous one, how do I make sure my new GPU works? Do I delete all of the drivers from my previous one, or? I'm really trying to upgrade my PC.

So DDU uninstalls the previous drivers, but then I can manually install the new ones?

Yeah, my current GPU is pretty low end. It's an Intel G45 Express Chipset. (If I can) I'm probably going to get a Nvidia GPU.

Just remove the old drivers and install the latest one for the new GPU

When I buy a new GPU, will the packaging come with instructions or will I have to manually install the new drivers?

The G45 Express Chipset is an integrated graphics solution, there is no need to remove the drivers for it unless you are extremely limited by the storage of your hard drive. You simply have to put the new card in your computer and then navigate to the website (Either AMD or Nvidia depending on who you go with) and download the newest drivers. You can use the disk that comes with your gpu but after the install is finished you should update because those drivers will be pretty old. Hope this helps ;)

Then install Nvidia Drivers from the Geforce site.Try to install the latest ones if you're getting Pascal or Maxwell.

Can someone assist me plz? :p
I can't decide between the MSI GTX 970 GAMING 100 Million Edition OC 4GB and the Gigabyte AMD R9 390 8GB G1 Gaming…
I am going to upgrade to 16GB Ram soon (if that makes a difference). And I would gladly buy another PSU if needed, Any advice is appreciated :)
Thanks in advance

Get the 390 it has 8GB of Vram and also the 16GB of RAM would be sufficient for the card and synchronized well.

Would you prefer a gpu with 3.5GB of Vram or a whooping 8GB vram on the 390? Would you buy a gpu that has practically been reported to have failed all direct x 12 benchmark test or you would rather go for a gpu that fully passed all benchmark tests? You decide!!

Go for the GTX 970 with that I5 u r having… Intel CPU will Sync Well with Nvidia better than an AMD Card … If u compare with Stock GTX 970 with stock R9 390 … well the theory says GTX 970 is 5% greater… some people will go with heavy Vram …R9 390 8GB Vram which remains use less at ur small reso..even does not require over 3 or 4 GB on 1080p… where as GTX 970 has 3.5 GB and 500MB slower Vram but…as per benchmark GTX 970 is Doing very well at its price range..and why chose AMD ? where Game companies r interested to pair with Nvidia Now a Days

However, there would be a bottleneck in the near future,lets not forget that the 970 is already getting maxed out in most of the newer titles,as of consideration it would be wise to get an R9 390 since it has the 8GB of vram and equal the amount of ROPS of a 970 for a cheaper cost.Also AMD cards on DX12 benefit further then Nvidia cards with Asynch Compute you can't go worng but if you are a CUDA type of guy then go with 970 SLI if you have the money.

Even 980 ti get maxed in most new tittles when pushing the graphics and resolution too far. My point is, that 4gb vRAM are enough for 1080p gaming, also a 390 can't play on graphics were 8gb are used/needed. So for 1080p a 970 would be more than enough for todays gaming. So it all comes down to preferences, as 390 and 970 both are great cards for 1080p gaming ;)

i would say R9 390 more vram, better async compute for DX12, but you cant go wrong if you choose 970 either

You need another PSU anyway, since it's (just to be fair) a very bad one that will deliver only 400-450w before breaking down.


Now for GTX970 or R9390, you can't really go wrong with either one

Your chip might be golden, you never know :-D


if you have enough cooling, try 1.3V and 4.4Ghz, if thats stable go for 4.5, and so. :)


I recommend overclocking, always! ^^

You haft to do both.


Send me a message when you get a good cooler and i`ll help you. :)


But usually.


Cpu volt 1.3V
Multiplier 4.5.


If this is stable, go to 46 on multi, if that is unstable, go to 44 on multi.

CPU manufacturing is a little bit hit and miss. It is like carving a skin pores into a stone slab with a drill the bit 0.014 % the size of a human hair. It is difficult to create CPU's that are identical. Every one will be slightly different and so some will overclock very well, and some will overclock poorly.

I know I've asked a similar question but my computer isn't exactly built and I have time to switch around parts, I was originally going to get a ASUS 750Ti 2GB OC but now I'm considering a ZOTAC GTX 760. Would a 760 work with a 430W PSU?

It is a bit less since minimum would be 500w for a 760 and if you have a system that takes alot of wattage then you might need to purchase a new psu try, outervision's psu calculator

Because you have to have a good quality PSU and not a cheap purchase since those can endanger your other components

I would recommend a better PSU with the 760 most certainly….even if ur power supply turns out to be enough ull still be using it to its limit which may cause problems down the line

That's right it's better to have some breathing room maybe a 750w psu will do for future upgrades

i'd say 750w is way too much. even when looking to upgrade. a nice seasonic 600-650W unit would be perfect.

Would a ASUS GTX 750Ti 2GB OC be bottlenecked by a AMD X4 860K?

before you overclock you GPU you should upgrade your PSU at least 600w or 650w
because this is power hungry process needs much more than its normal………..
so upgrade your PSU….

Can someone tell me to what extent can i overclock my gpu?
I don't want to burn down my system.
My psu is 450w with 21Amps on 12v rail and it's dual 12v rail if it matters.

Anyone here have any idea why the R9 280's/280X's had/have such a high fail rate? I mean the 7950's/7970's are golden.


Also gravely disappointed by AMD disabling crossfire in Far Cry 4 >.>

I don't think AMD disabled crossfire in FC4, that's mostly Ubisoft's doing.
I also haven't heard anything specific about high failure rates…

Says it in their latest beta driver update notes. Increased performance for single GPU's by up to 50% in FC4, added a crossfire profile for FC4, and disabled the profile because it was having alot of issues. Said they're working with Ubisoft to fix it with either a driver update, game patch, or both. Until then crossfire is disabled in FarCry4.

Newegg IDs N82E16814161456, N82E16814129280, and N82E16814125515.


A chunk of the reviews are just DOA or "lasted only a month". Mabey there is/was a problem with the OEM board design, hence most the high end versions using alternate designs are fine? No idea. Gigabytes 7900's were spot on, why are these bad?

you also have to know that more people post about problems than when nothing happens at all.
ubisoft didnt implement native xfire into fc4. thats why there will have to be a patch or a driver update to fix the issue. when forcing xfire it says there can be issues. thats not amd's fault, thats ubisoft's fault.

What you're saying is, Ubisoft sucks…. Hm, well, no surprise there.


I mean, you can't make a "next gen" balls-to-the-wall graphics game and cut out half the high end hardware options. Not cool Ubisoft >.>


At least they're trying I guess. They could've not made it all for PC, and they are putting effort into getting CF working (well with AMD nagging them to make it work XD).
