Apple and Oranges

I was using a machine with integrated
graphics, and frustrated it would not
play many games.

Upgraded to the brand new computer described below.
Supposedly the new comptuter can be
"overclocked", or came that way. I don't
know anything about that stuff.

New machine:

Shinobee / Biostar Group model A960D+V3

Shinobee SSD Ultra 8-Core Gaming PC/Multimedia Desktop Computer - FX 8300 8 x 4.20 GHz - AMD Radeon RX 460 2GB DDR5 Graphics - 8GB DDR3-240GB SSD - 500GB HDD - Win10 Pro - CD/DVDRW - WiFi #6006


The new machine came with two RAM slots
and one 8 GB Ram stick.

One game (battletech) lags, freezes and crashes a little bit,
but I don't know if that is due to lack of
RAM. Lots of people report that the specific game developers are
know for releasing Buggy software. And yes, of course I have
aske the devs for help. Silence.

Supposedly the computer manufacturer supplies 24/7 tech support,
but this turns out to be a lie. After three weeks, no reply.

I suspect lack of RAM because I usually have
streaming video running simultaneously while
playing a game, and switch frequently back
and forth. I use Chrome, which I understand
eats up lots of RAM.

At the moment of typing this, Netflix, Battletech
are runing simultaneously.
Task Manager says under Performance
CPU 33%
Memory 71%
Utilization 33%
Speed 3.53 GH
96 Processes
Maximum speed 3.30 GHz
Virtualization: Enabled

Most of that information is meaningless to me.

So, would it be advisable to upgrade to 16GB,
with only one 8 GB stick, or pull the original
and install two new?

Which is the better "bang for the buck" of these:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...05&CatId=11637

Crucial Memory Module - 8GB, DDR3L, PC3-12800 1600MHz, UDIMM 240-pin, CL11, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, 1.35V - CT102464BD160B


OR

https://www.neweggbusiness.com/Produ...E&gclsrc=aw.ds


G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

If the price difference of twenty bucks seems trivial to you, feel free to send me twenty via PayPal.

Thank you!

- MaxPCIBus : Sets the maximum PCI bus to scan. Default value is 256.
- DMI : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the DMI (Desktop Management Interface) information. This concerns BIOS vendor and version, motherboard vendor and revision. 1 to enable.
- SMBus : Set to OFF (or 0) disables SMBus information : SPD, and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information. 1 to enable.
- Display : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the video card information reported in the validator. 1 to enable.
- UseDisplayAPI : Set to 1, uses the display driver to read the display adapters information.
- BusClock : Set to 1, uses the bus clock as primary clock source. Set to 0 to use an alternate method.
- Chipset : set to OFF (or 0) disables the memory controller and southbridge information. 1 to enable.
- SPD : set to 0 to disable SPD reading. 1 to enable.
- XOC : eXtreme Overclock Mode : runs CPU-Z with as little system load as possible. Your system won't be fully validated before it is manually checked. Requires to restart CPU-Z.
- CheckUpdates : set to 0 to disable the new version checker at startup. 1 to enable.

Parameters
----------

-txt=filename : Launch CPU-Z in ghost mode (no interface appears) and generates the register dump file (.txt)
in the same directory as the exe file.

-html=filename : Same as "-txt" except it generates the html report.

-core=id : Displays clock speed of core #id (id can be set from 0 to Number of cores minus one).

-bench : runs CPU-Z without interface, runs the benchmark, and saves the result in a TXT file named like the machine.


Keys
----

F5 : save the current tab in a bmp file
F6 : save the current tab in the clipboard
F7 : save cvf file in the current directory

After looking more closely at your New Machine.

I see a big problem with it.
Your using the ON BOARD VIDEO CHIPSET.
Thus, instead of the processor having 8Gb's of Memory too use.
It only has 6Gb's of Memory.

Thus, if you look at battletech system requirements.

Suggestion;

1st) Get more memory.
Go head and max out the ON Board Memory to 16GB's.

2nd) Get a 2Gb Video Card or higher GB Video Card.
By having the Memory dedicated directly to the GPU on the Video Card.
This frees up the ON Board Memory on the Motherboard for the processor to use.

This motherboard has ON Board Graphics Adapter, which shares the ON Board Memory with the Processor.
Because of that It can cause your games to run slow, Lags, or crash.

This will help greatly.

Sorry, for doing two postings. But for some odd reason it wouldn't let me quote, or edit my 1st post.

I think you mis-read, she said she was using on-board graphics in the old system, but the new system, She posted:

AMD Radeon RX 460 2GB DDR5 Graphics

The new machine came with two RAM slots and one 8 GB Ram stick.

One of your problems is the one 8GB stick of memory, you are not taking advantage of "DUAL CHANNEL", that is having 2 sticks of the same capacity running. In games it is only a small difference. But I would certainly upgrade to 16GB and get 2-8gb sticks. You should see a difference.

Go with the Gskill Ripjaw I run them, although not a gamer, they are great memory. and have a built in heat sink.

Sorry.....

I got tripped up with the fact that "AMD Radeon RX 460 2GB DDR5 Graphics" did not include the word CARD.


But I greed with Murf, that a Matched Paired of 8GB sticks of "DUAL CHANNEL" will give best performance.

Thanks. However, I do not have the FAINTEST idea of what an "on board chipset" is.

I purchased this Specifically because it said it came with a Dedicated seperate Graphics Processor. Rather than "integrated graphics".

So, I understand if you don't wish to explain, but could you instead send a link so I can understand? You might as well be speaking Japanese.

Should it really be this hard to buy a computer?

Thank you. I have 8GB RAM, with room in slot for 8 additional RAM. However, reading the STEAM GAMES forum aobut Battletech, this is a common problem. One user has a computer with THIRTY TWO GIGABYTES of RAM, and says it lags, freezes, crashes.

Is there a forum somewhere that we can go to vote to pass a Federal Law to impose a mandatory Death Sentence on people that deliberately release Buggy software?

So many thousands of forum posts about this game.....

The obvious answer is "go ask the Developers" but they evidently have a long long reputation for ripping people off with Bugs.

Thank you. It was my hope that after spending so much, it would be a while before I would have to invest more.

I don't quite understand. What exactly is the motivation to make games difficult for most people to run? What do the designers get out of the fact that they are spitting in the face of hundreds of thousands of potential customers?

Seriously, I only expected to run games that are a few years old, not the latest and greatest. But the "minimum specs" on all these store sites are a complete LIE.
