    gtx 1080, i9 9900k motherboard

    Yes, i7-9700k
  3. I still wouldn't go as far as saying it was the primary reason, because logically, the high cost of development (the first problem), low install base (another problem), and lack of a ROI (the biggest problem for developers) is what drove away third parties, ultimately hurting the Wii U's library, leading to even worse system sales. The system was facing problems before third parties pulled out and contributed further to the failure of the system. I wouldn't pin something as being the single point of failure for the Nintendo Wii U, I think it was just the perfect culmination of failures on Nintendo's part that led to it. I'm on Gamestop's website to look for these bundles, and I'm not seeing much, and the bundles I am seeing cost as much as the game plus the console itself. It's not like the free copy of Wii Sports that came with every Wii, it's "Get a slightly different looking Switch if you buy extra stuff with it" kind of bundles. Like this Smash Bros bundle, Yea, the game costs $59.99, and the system costs $299.99. You're spending an extra penny to get the special edition bundle. Or how about, This is the same thing, but now it includes an extra $39.99 controller you can only really use for that game. I mean, that particular Switch is really good looking, I'd be tempted to buy it, but these bundles cost extra money, I think it's fair to say that this isn't the same pack-in-syndrome in sales figures you see in titles like Wii Sports or Mario Kart Wii because the extras in the bundle cost the standard MSRP. Occasionally, some retail stores will offer their own bundle, like Gamestop usually offers "Buy 2 used games, get 1 free" sort of stuff, but Nintendo is selling these things for full price. I think you're looking at something else, then. I'm looking at Nintendo's actual sales numbers, as offered publicly to shareholders, not their e-shop's most downloaded lul. Unfortunately I'm just not finding enough data to argue over this, and I can only ultimately argue that Nintendo still won that generation of consoles. Here's an interesting tidbit pulled from the Wiki that I didn't even know about, though. "With this new rating system in place, Nintendo decided its censorship policies were no longer needed, and the SNES port of Mortal Kombat II was released uncensored." - per 1UP There's probably a limit to what titles they can take away before consumers decide the console isn't worth it, so I can only answer that with a fat "I don't know it depends on the market and what titles the PS5 would get combined with the launch price of the unit and continued interest in home consoles with systems like the Nintendo Switch and smartphones also available." Let's not forget, people bought the original Nintendo Wii in droves because Wii Sports was included and was just really fun for everyone, all without including sexualized content... although, that'd be... really weird with Miis? Nintendo marketed the Wii U as a console for everybody (consequently, nobody knew who it was for) and never really banned objectionable content - afterall, the ESRB exists. Take a look at the Nintendo 3DS, it existed alongside the Wii U and still had mature titles. Yea you're kind of on this trip where it sounds like your definition of fun is staring at sexually suggestive anime women bathed in the blood of their enemies, and I've got this feeling that a lot of people don't actually care for that, otherwise this would have been a much more publicly debated topic. I've personally failed to spot this topic outside of the LTT forums. I said it before but I personally believe this shift in Sony's policies is only a preventative act to avoid any further government regulation or intervention. No matter how you look at it or believe it's not the fault of Sony, people are gonna blame Sony if little Jimmy over there sees some naked anime women. I'm gonna cite the Nintendo SNES vs. Sega Genesis battle. The SNES still sold more units with Nintendo's internal censorship, even though that was eventually lifted. People are going to continue buying the console with the better library or feature set, and I don't think Sony getting a bit more strict with first party content is going to change anything.

  6. For now as a temporary safeguard you can try underclocking the cpu a bit. That should help with the temps until you find a permanent solution. The performance hit won't be much if you underclock it even by 15%. Losing some fps is still better than having those temps affect the long term hardware lifetime.

    I could not find i9 9700k on the internet, is it i7?

    Threadripper better than i9 9700k?

    help me build my budget pc

    Yes, US. I'll look into those and see if it can fit the budget. Would like more suggestions though

    Pretty much everything. Dual core CPU and 8GB of single channel DDR3 memory is holding you back in games. 6th gen doesn't have good cost/performance these days so no point upgrading within 6th gen intel. Would need a newer CPU, meaning a new motherboard and new RAM. Would also be wise to add an SSD for the OS and better PSU wouldn't go amiss if you're upgrading the rest of the hardware.

  14. So I have an $800 budget for everything. (US) I need everything except a mouse. I built a PC 10 years with an intel chip set and I am willing to use AMD chip set. (although I'm not familiar at all with AMD). When listing a graphics card it would be nice if you can compare it performance wise with the GTX series cards which I'm familiar with. I would be using it for gaming such as games like World of Warships, Shadow of War, The Witcher 3, GWs2, LoL, blizzard games. I would like at least a small ssd and a decent monitor/keyboard. And a cool case that doesn't break the budget Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks in advanced for the help

    A home streaming and downloading centre

    What budget/country? 4K netflix streaming is the only thing that requires certain hardware choices, but I wouldn't worry much about it.

    2 gamers 1 cpu

    un-raid takes whatever is left over. You don't assign any ram to it, only to the VM's.
  17. The 6 years with 2 renewable points to Apple wanting to take its time anyway. 5G isn't really settled tech yet, so there's actually more logic in keeping it off the SoC for now. Modems aren't the easiest chips to design, but they're nothing compared to a full SoC. What takes time is regulatory approval. Without Apple having anything in the pipeline already, it'll probably be 3 years before it'd be approved. They'll put them in everything that isn't the iPhone until they're ready to add it there.
  18. here is an idea for a video there are water coolers for welding that are practically the same thing we use in computers but much beefier I don't know any other channel dumb ambitious enough to do this so take Alex and Riley and do this!!! the reasons to do it: 1 Alex will need welding machine sooner or later 2 Riley has not lost his water cool virginity yet 3 you do this kind of videos anyway

    970 Evo in T420 using m.2 to Sata adapter

    Yes, the m.2 version of the MX500 should work with a m.2 to Sata adapter. It is slightly slower than the 970 Evo, but also much cheaper. In most use cases you wouldn't notice the difference between the MX500 and the 970 Evo.
  20. Well, they're "supposed" to do that when you agree to it, so it makes sense for the code to be there - but it shouldn't happen when consent is not given.

  22. Because it was accurate and thus it wasn't click bait, your getting all worked up over nothing. There is just no rationality to your upset.
  23. realpetertdm


    CPU full stop. Why would you pair an i3-6100 (which is DUAL CORE btw) with a RX 570 Get at least an i3 8th gen. Also try upgrading to at least a SATA SSD

    alternative power sources from motherboard

    I'm looking through my pc odds and ends seeing if i can use them in some way....that really drove this inquiry. I saw that it specs as power so I thought maybe. The other response about voltage is an important consideration. Tomorrow I will get clear on all those adapters and their ends. Thanks for your response.

    Hissing/Static When Playing Music

    Thanks for the suggestions but I am using "hi-res" mode which does not allow surround sound. I also checked and both the mic and headphones are on 96000 hz.
