  1. Past hour
  2. There are benefits to marriages and civil unions in many countries, such as tax breaks, citizenship(if one is a foreigner), and sharing insurance. It's mostly for the purpose of supporting childbearing families.

    new build any useful suggestions?

    i want to stick with parts as much as i can with one manufacture so if i get gigabyte then do they have a gpu that is basicly all black. and what about their rgb lighting. i dont want to have to open 3 different programs to control lighting. i choose the hx750 because according to pcpart picker max watts should be around 388 watts and im assuming my idle usage would be around 175 which would put me right in the peak efficiency. also means that it will be rare that my psu's fan actually turns on because it doesnt turn on until 300 watts. i want a 32" screen i am currently using a 32" samsung tv as a monitor. its super old and does the job just fine so it would be a upgrade. and considering the samsung monitor is only 300$ canadian thats a great deal.

    How practical is 1 CPU 2 Gamers?

    Except you could realistically run two gaming VMs on a Ryzen 5. You'd have to rely on threads to a certain extent, but you could probably get by. It wouldn't be pretty and Ryzen 7 would definitely be recommended, though. It really depends on space and budget, I would say. I could do that in my basement for me and my brother, but it wouldn't make sense because we easily have the space for two separate gaming machines. Budget comes into play a little bit. If you can afford two gaming rigs, that'll be more pleasant for everyone than having to set up and configure a 2 gamers/1 CPU setup.

    HDMI with vga dual monitor setup help!

    Does your GPU have a VGA out? If not, your going to be looking at an active converter, or replacing the monitor.
  6. apart from Asrock which seems to hand out beta stuff you cant get elsewhere happily to complaining customers, everyone else does that or ask if you would like to RMA.

    FX What to Do

    I make my old parts into servers. I have an fx 6300 as a file/media server and an apu as a game server. You can find tons to do with old hardware. Next up I am going to take an old Intel chip and make it a wireless backup server in my garage just in case anything happens.

    Ethernet over Coax?

    Looks like you have DSL. As long as thats the case, then Deca adapters should work. Though I think they are limited to 100 Mbps.
  9. Some of those Sharkoon cases looks more like a show piece with restricted airflow. What type of processor were you planning to get? If you are not overclocking or getting something that will be easy to cool with a stock cooler then you can prioritize aesthetics over and functionality. We all have our preferences. I have RGB fans and AIO for my system that is really only noticeable from the window panel side. My case doesn't function as a disco light ball.
  10. When watching that video, and I know it's a bit old at this point, where Linus takes a look at the Logitech charging pad. Was I alone in thinking: "huh, I thought Linus would've heard about this happening over 10years ago already in a similar fashion.."? I was kinda surprised, specially when he got all excited about it I mean, it's cool and all, just not really all that fancy imo. I used to have this mouse https://www.pcreview.co.uk/articles/a4tech-wireless-battery-free-optical-mouse.51/. And it was pretty neat^^
  11. In that case his father. Places like Andover and Exeter are expensive. Hell, going to a HS like that usually matters MORE than what college you go to. If you count my HS/college job, I've been in the working world for well over a decade. I actually haven't had anything particularly bad happen to me, have gotten promotions every other year or so and currently work with a lot of awesome people doing stuff I enjoy and being paid generously for it (low to mid 6 figures). I would disagree that "business degree" = moron. As a rule of thumb I have a lot of respect for people with a STEM undergrad/grad degree as well as an MBA from a top school. They tend to be very well rounded, my first boss fit that mark. Then again the Harvard MBA I worked with was surprised that gender non-binaries/decline to state only made up something like 0.2% of the dataset I was working with... "you worked at McKinsey?"

    LOGITECH G POWERPLAY

    I have the G703 and love that mouse. I get around 30 hours of usage with the rgb off.
  13. Even most low-end 2160p TVs have smart TV functionality, from what I've seen. Hell, most 1080p TVs now do, so it's almost expected on a TV with a higher resolution.
  14. I understand that they need an answer sheet for common issues. But the thing is they never respond to specific, detailed and well written requests. And it's infuriating. It is like trying to talk to a wall.
  15. Obly true of Black Ops 4. Though, given the story of 3, it's understandible that Treyarch gave up.

    Looking for a wireless mouse!

    G502 wireless is such a rip off. I’ve owned the wired version for a while now and no way would I pay $150 for that mouse
  17. Asus has always had shitty support ( I own one of their mobos and 2 tablets) their only saving grace is looks and I like their bios. I much prefer asrock, msi and gigabyte in terms of the hardware.

    Which SSD would be best for me?

    I getf what is practical for me. For a gaming laptop I would get a 2tb SATA SSD. 2tb because I fill 1tb SSDs up too fast. I like Crucial but I get Samsung if they are on sale. If you don't mind installing and uninstalling games go 1tb. I got two 1tb Crucial SSDs for $117 each to replace 5400 RPM HDs in laptops last Black Friday. Since the laptops are for "on the road" the size made sense.

    New Monitor 1440p 144hz or 1080p 240hz

    1. 6.6ghz? Is that intended to be 4.6? If not, I believe you've got to hold a world record there on something. 2. Monitors and refresh rates are something that are really subjective. Personally, I can tell a difference between 60-120, but 120-144, I struggle with, 144-240 is functionally identical to me. Others are able to clearly, easily, and reliably distinguish between 144-240 (I believe our very own Edzel is capable of this, if I remember correctly). 3. I find 3440x1440 to be the sweet spot for high(er) end gaming panels. It has some of the advantages of 4k (over 1080p) without the performance hit you get with 4k. I don't have experience with ultrawides, so I can't make comment. I'd suggest, if you can get hands-on, test some of the monitors you're looking at in person, that's going to be the best way to get a feel for what you want.

    240MM Open loop, could it defeat 9900K?

    I have a 240mm cooling a 7600k and 1080Ti so yeah, it's fine if you don't mind the water getting up to 50C. My experience with motherboards is to just get the one that has the features you want. They're all the same for normal overclocking where if it's Z series it's not going to have any stupid shit like a 4 phase VRM.
  21. I think all manufacturers are pretty much same when it comes to software and customer support. And there is a room for improvement and competition. I will go with whatever manufacturer figures it out first and does it right. My rant is specifically about ROG brand since it is supposed to be user friendly and premium for the price people are paying. At current state of hardware issues in the industry I can't vouch for PC gaming being 'easy' and 'accessible'. Honestly thing that made PCMR really glorious are slowly fading away and it is sad.

    What convinced you to switch from Console to PC?

    Nothing. I own PCs and consoles.

    AMD Software killed my GPU

    The software didn’t kill your gpu, that’s nonsense. I used a rx580 8gb for a long time and went thru numerous driver updates without any issue
  25. 50k a yeah HS? Who pays for HS? Also, welcome to the working world. My dad has spent the last 35 years in the shopping cart manufacturing and refurbishing industry. He knows how to run a plant, and every time a company has decided to kick him out over their own mistakes, an replace him with some college educated moron, you know what happens? A year or two later, the customers leave that company en-masse to switch to whatever company picked him up. Because they know he will work his ass off to get them the best deal and the best service imaginable. It's been proof to me that anyone with a "business degree" is a complete fucking moron who prioritizes immediate quarterly profits over long-term viability as a company.

    BOINC Pentathlon 2019

    Neither do I but it said it simply enough for team rank. I wonder how far I'll get if I continue to let my servers crunch at about 50~75% capacity. I have to balance power/heat/noise before I can even claim 50% though.
