You probably would want to get more storage. I would recommend this Samsung SATA SSD.

The video card is sufficient for most medium/high settings gaming in 1080p.

$50 for 16gb of the correct type of RAM and $50 for the SSD so $100-120 in total or $150-170 in total if you want a 1 TB SSD not counting the tool cost. Bonus round: you can swap out the DVD drive for a second SATA hard drive bay and put a 2 TB hard drive there in addition to the SSD.

New hard drive. I hope you wouldn't throw out a perfectly good computer over a dead hard drive. Might be a good idea to upgrade to an SSD for faster performance. a great 500GB SSD is only $80

Remember, back up all your data unless you're ok with losing it.

Would this ssd work?

I’m guessing any 2.5 SATA drive should work ssd of course. But I’ll give you a link to a popular one it’s by Samsung

No problem, it's seriously such a good idea if you play this game regularly, the difference is absolutely huge. I don't even think about teleport times now and I don't consider going somewhere else just because say limsa is crowded or it's a busy time of day. Teleport times are always short and the same regardless of how many people there are. Same with hunts, even with super full hunt trains you teleport in zone very quickly and the mob doesn't disappear as long as you are close to it. Such a big difference.

That's the ssd I got, you can make it a 1tb for 140 but personally that is overkill for my ps4 so I didnt bother. I only play ffxiv and maaaybe one other but pretty much only ffxiv.

Wow! Thank you so much, guides are something I didn't even think to look for. Just a few questions. One, would I be able to replace the SSD with this one?

Also, What is the thermal paste for, and why do I need it? Other than that, looks great. Thank you so much!

+1 this. Even sata SSDs ( will make a world of difference when using her computer daily. Boot times go from 45s to 5s. Will be the most noticeable improvement to your build.

r/pcgamingtechsupport • comment

From the user benchmark that you posted, it looks like your system drive and memory are really underperforming. How long have you had that SSD? If a while, it may be on its last leg. If you go to replace it, I'd suggest a 2.5" Samsung EVO since it looks like your motherboard doesn't support M.2 drives.

I'd also highly suggest getting another stick of memory. DDR3 should be dirt cheap nowadays. I would try to get the same stick if possible but any brand at the same speed should be good enough. There can be significant performance improvements moving from single-channel to dual-channel. Like yes, 8GB should be more than enough but you can see significant improvements with 2x4GB vs 1x8GB configurations.

I was looking at this SSD. What do you think? Also, would I want to buy it with the mount? How is the installation process on something like this? And what else would I need if anything? Sorry for all the questions but like I said, I know a good amount on the software end of computers but not much at all when it comes to hardware. Thanks again!

Hard drive is failing.

Buy an SSD. SSDs also can fail without warning; make sure you get a good quality SSD (not a cheap-o one) and also make sure that you back that up on something else.

Internal SSDs like a Samsung 870 EVO are not too expensive in <1TB quantities.

I personally use Samsung Evo drives, and Western Digital Black. Currently An 860 Evo 500Gb is $56:

Samsung's cloning software also makes swapping them a breeze.

Try updating your BIOS first

you can always just buy a new SSD tho, they aren't that expensive nowadays. You may lose your data but better than no PC.

Yes, what ginger_bread84 said - trying to reallocate data from failing sectors can peg the disk usage at 100%. Download and run HD Sentinel free to check the disk health. But if nothing else, upgrade it to SSD. Don’t mess around and just get a Samsung, they are the best. 500GB for $77. Clone your current drive using Macrium Reflect Free. If drive is failing, then you need to use something like Clonezilla with the skip bad sectors option enabled.

Along these lines, I am actually impressed you have this game installed on a system with only a 240 GB it must be COD and windows and that is it... So, you can upgrade that disk to 500 GB or 1 TB for not too much (however I know this relative to your means)... here's an OK 500 GB ssd for 80 bucks:

Or you can go for the 1 TB version for $130.

If you're broke just ignore this post.

Not really. Just get a sata 3 with a dram cache. Any ssd that is not bottom of the line should have that. I’ve gotten really good deals on crucial and Samsung ssd’s before. Something like this should be great.

The RTX 2060 Ti doesn't exist, that's the 2060 Super. Which will probably be bottlenecked by the low IPC of your AMD FX-8320E.

You already have DDR3 RAM in a DDR3 motherboard. I'm not sure what you want here.

The loading speed is largely a function of the game's ability to read data from your hard drive quickly. Upgrading your 7200 RPM spinny-disk to an SSD will be well-worth the money.

You will get a better ROI than the $400+ you likely spent on the R9 390. A Samsung Evo 860 (500 GB) is on sale for about $80 on Amazon right now (might find better prices elsewhere - this is for reference). The older 850 Evo model is probably cheaper. Even if you keep most of your older games and media on the 7200 RPM drive as a storage diskm you'll enjoy your computing experience much better if Windows (or your other favourite flavor of OS) and modern games are installed on an SSD.

From personal experience I recommend the Samsung ssd. I got the 500gb cause that’s all I think I would need but it’s relatively cheap. Definitely speeds up your Mac mini by so much!

This is a 600GB SAS drive.

This SATA SSD will outperform that SAS drive in every measurable way, it will run quieter, last longer, draw less power, and overall be a far better investment than trying to make that SAS drive work.

The screws you will remove are not the star shaped ones (precision T#) you will want to remove the "X" like screws on the bracket that holds it in not any screws only on the hard drive.

Like @beef said any 2.5 ssd will work, you may want to check the reviews on them before buying that specific one

Something like this would work:

You will need to reinstall your operating system after wards, so make sure you create a installer USB for whatever OS you run.

What OP has on his list right now. (500 GB at $90)

An overall faster drive for less money (Still 500 GB but NVMe for $85)

There's no good reason to buy SATA now unless you don't have a port for NVMe M.2.

Ok. I’m familiar with that unit.

You need to max out the RAM to 16gb (4gb just isn’t enough)

I use this ram :

And you want to upgrade to a SSD

You will see a night and day difference with this upgrade. It’s really worth it. Made my 2011 17” nice and snappy

What? You can get 500-512 GB drives for around $55, slightly cheaper than the SSHD

I'd rather have less storage than a slow, chugging PC. PCs at this budget already lack in responsiveness, and an SSD can alleviate a lot of that. Not to mention that he was still below his $300 mark, so potentially waiting for a 1TB SSD deal is not out of the question.

Can you spot the bottleneck? Please help!

Guys, I have the following specs:


What should I upgrade to run PUBG at 1080p at 144 consistent frames with Textures on Medium and Sharpen enabled?

Can someone please spot the bottleneck or give me tips on how to improve my performance. It runs like wonders in other games, this is the only game it gives me headaches, and none of the suggested tweaks helped!

Yeah. The iPad Pros with apples processors already beat the current intel MacBooks benchmarks that they offer. It’s definitely going to be worth the wait. Especially if you ever want to run current iOS apps on your laptop. The best bang for your buck right now would be to upgrade to a Samsung evo ssd for around ~$100. 4gb of ram is very small for a computer too. I would upgrade that as well for another ~$100.l to maybe 16GB. So for like $200 you can upgrade your current system to hold you off for the next 6 months and the trade off is that you’ll be able to buy a computer that will last you another decade. Just make sure when you do make that upgrade, get enough ram and storage so that you don’t run into this issue again down the road.
