Hello All,

I recently got the BSOD on my PC and I couldn’t narrow it down to what was causing it. I got multiple error codes like System thread exception not handled, IRQL not less or equal, driver overran stack buffer, kernel exception not handled.. etc after further research I found that I had 6 viruses!( no idea how I got them if all I did on my PC was play steam games and watch YouTube videos, movies) Once I removed the viruses from PC, I still kept getting BSOD which I guess it’s because the viruses might have corrupted some files already. I have tried to factory reset my PC and even that won’t work it either crashes or says it couldn’t reset At this point I’m not sure if I should just try installing windows again on my external hard drive and remove the SSD.

Or should I build a new PC completely with replacing some parts only if so which should I replace? I mainly just use my PC for gaming and no streaming or editing. What would you guys recommend to do in my situation? I don’t mind investing on a new PC just don’t want to deal with this BSOD issues

I will greatly appreciate your help

Thanks.

I could make you a new part list. Budget?

As far as reusing parts, if you got viruses and have no idea how, don't reuse any of the parts, especially storage.

I’ll say my budget is 2,500? I don’t need any monitors or case(I have the Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB) I also got a gigabyte 1080 Ti Gpu

If you don't want to upgrade the GPU, then I won't spend all of $2500 because there's no point.

Well I wouldn’t mind upgrading the GPU so disregard that comment

Here's what I would do. You could realistically move up to a 9900k or even ks but there's not enough of a performance benefit to justify the cost in my mind. If I were to add a GPU though, it would a 2080ti. Here's a comparison.

Reply with any questions! Enjoy

Ok nice, take a look at some 2080ti's Here and let me know what you like.

I usually go with Evga or Asus but what would you recommend? Not sure if branding really makes a difference

I don’t mind upgrading my gpu. As for intel 9, I’m not sure if it’s worth upgrading or if there’s really an outstanding difference in performance to invest in one
