  3. so you flashing the rom correctly ? how are you doing it, with usb cable ? or via the gui ? a little more info is needed Slim
  4. The following site is good for stock roms, the mxq pro 4k is listed here also https://chinagadgetsreviews.com/ Please be aware, some mxq pro 4k have different amlogic cpu's, they are listed as the following s905 s905x s905w (there are others also, but these are the main ones) You have to use the exact rom, for your Amlogic chip, s905 is the most common, but i noticed lately the s905x is being used more these days. If you match it up, you will have no problems Slim

    That's great, heard good things about Ryzen 1700x and the 1070. Here's a few things i recommend for future upgrades.... Beleve it or not, you CAN get more speed, check to see if you're motherboard supports RAID technology, if it does, then you can buy a couple of SSD's to put in your sata slots, configure them into raid 0, and BOOM you got a super speedy storage space for games. with SSD x 2 you can expect speeds up to 1000mb read speed. However, this is for the future, so please don't worry about this yet, this is just a future option Also, watercooling is good to maintain stable performance at standard stock levels, and improved performance if you decide to overclock it a level, i personally opted for watercooling just for stock settings. Stable performance and peace of mind was my thinking there. Also i would recommend a more meatier PSU, for a setup like that i would recommend a psu of 750w mininum, but maybe you can get away with running all that with the psu you have now, but tbh, please check, but if it is ok, then kew, but a 750w psu in the future (or even 1000w) is a nice way of future proofing your system. I am very glad you have made these choices, i feel happy you are now going to get a good gaming experience. Enjoy Slim

    I know this might sound not what you want to hear, but it's pretty essential you save as much as you can. Budget gaming pc's in my opinion, are not much cop, the longer you save for the better. The future is now going to be real time ray tracing, so therefore getting an RTX nvidia card would be ideal, but they are insanely expensive, but bear in mind, real time ray tracing is the next big thing, and i think software dev's are going to be focusing on that in the future, for now, just pick up a cheap 1080ti to keep up with the field, then strike while the iron is hot, when the rtx's reach their 2nd or 3rd generation. I honestly think 1,200 pounds minimum, will get you a good gaming pc, lag is gonna be a major problem on something like a 600 pound rig, using a 1060, believe me, i've seen many streamers on twitch, using the 1060, and they really do struggle (PUBG is a big offender to this) This is just my perosnal opinion on what a good gaming pc should be. Slim
  11. Aye, true, i would say it's worth subbing to ps plus, just for that one game !!! Slim (dot com)
  12. hmmm just realised you are on about ps4 games, well destiny 2 is ps4, but i been playing the pc version, they are both similar cept pc is 4k and 60fps Slim
  13. WoW, Destiny 2, A Hat in Time, and many other games, , check out my twitch channel , in the archives are all the games i've been playing lately... https://www.twitch.tv/cakemanslim/videos/all
  14. aye totally, i made a point of getting a 1tb one drive account, now i back up everything, i am taking no chances now Slim
  15. Ok all sorted respect goes out to Daz the man ! ty pal Slim
