Directory of most reliable PC gaming parts manufacturers and buying guidance for those parts.
First, welcome to the club! I started mining a couple years ago and have made plenty of profits out of it. All of the money has surprisingly vanished without improving my way of life, however (though I have higher framerates now). But that’s just me. Earl from our team also does mining. He’s been more passionately involved in mining and for way longer than me, close to 6 years now. Is he more qualified to write this piece? Who cares?
Both GPUs have a small price difference. Though the 1650 Ti is generally considered to be better, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Let’s have a look at the heated comparison between the GTX 1660 and the 1650 Ti.
The GTX 1650 is a decent choice for gaming these days. It’s readily available (as it’s not good for crypto mining) and is faster than many. It’s a sweet Goldilocks zone for affordable 1080p gaming.
Heat is the arch-nemesis of PC gamers. If you can tame the heat, you can not only improve the gameplay but increase the lifespan of your GPU (and other hardware). Let’s see how to better manage and control the GPU temperature in a gaming PC.
GPUs: Core clock vs. boost clock
Video card specs include two very key parameters: the core clock and the boost clock. What are they all about? And as a gamer, what should you know about both types of clock speeds?
The GeForce RTX 3090 is not a Ti card. Ti cards are usually based on a different architecture. And it’s too slow to be a Titan. It’s simply a card for those who want to shell $1500.
GPU artifacting is a big issue. When it happens once or twice, you can ignore it. But don’t be the type of gamer who ignores it all the time.
There are three important considerations when you go for a gaming machine: GPU, CPU, and RAM. What does a game truly need? More often than not, the answer is the GPU. But it differs from game to game.
