I suggest moving your gpu to the top pcie 16x slot as you have it in a pcie 4x slot

I see a huge red flag, that psu can not fit in a p300. You either have the wrong case or a different psu.

People see that it is fast in synthetics and think that it is fast in real world performance, as i said, it is the placebo affect

m.2 is just a form factor, not a measure of speed. people use m.2 drives because they think they are faster then sata ssd, when in fact they boot windows the same speed. the only real reason you choose m.2 over a 2.5" ssd is for sff builds or if your workload can benefit from nvme.

To sum it up: m.2 is a form factor, people choose a m.2 drive because they assume it is faster and get tricked by a placebo affect.

its not that it is atx 12v v2.3, it is the platform it is built on which is from the early 90's, you can tell because no modern psus made in the laste 15 or so years has a voltage selection switch. plus your psu is only rated 360w max

2080 is just a place holder for the 2080 super

Can you not read? Also the team l5 lite 3d uses the same internal hardware as the mx500. It has dram as seen here https://imgur.com/a/yJ5VDqk.

I edited his list to remove overpriced parts and make it more powerful. The RTX 2080 is a place holder for the new RTX 2080 super. The b450 tomahawk will need a bios update which msi makes very easy through their cpuless bios flashing feature.

I suggest not going with an amd gpu if the OP is planning to stream. Nvidia is a much better option due to Nvenc.

just a heads up, the a400 is a horrible ssd, it lacks dram which means it is slow and has a shorter life span. i also suggest going with zen2 as it is more powerful and cheaper.

What makes the a400 junk is that it lacks dram, ssd that lack dram are slow and have a shorter lifespan. just incase you wanted to know

This list is better optimized for your uses, The 2080 is a better choice over the radeon 7 due to nvidia having the Nvenc built in.

I suggest not getting an AMD gpu if the OP plans to stream. Nvidia is way better at streaming due to the built in nvenc encoder.

Sounds like a faulty psu, if it killed one card then it is possible it killed the 580. Do you have another system to test the 580 in?
