  1. Past hour
  2. Just bought the Prospek Elite from Spektrum for $55. They're awesome and remind me of the BluBlockers I had when I was younger. I had the aviators which you can get two pairs for under $50 (source: https://www.blublocker.com/products/2-black-original-aviator-blublockers). I don't remember the quality of the lenses though. These Prospek Elite have a nice oleophobic lens that's super easy to keep smudge free. The only bad thing is there's no spring in the frame or whatever and I don't mind that there's no adjustable nose piece but some people might. Really feel like my eyes are more comfortable sitting on a computer all day and am a big fan of the glasses. Again, probably could have gotten the same performance from the BluBlockers though.
  3. Weight isn't too much of a problem, perhaps around 2-3kg (tbh I don't have a good feeling about what is too heavy). My dream laptop would have a battery life of around 7 hours under light browsing maybe.
  4. For the record, I'm not using a different billing/shipping address(both are the same address for me) to get around paying a sales tax. I use a separate billing address for pretty much everything both to have packages delivered to a secure location until I can pick them up to avoid thefts from porch pirates and to protect my privacy when traveling. I do not want my home address being disclosed to a hotel/motel clerk or out of State sales clerk since it would inform them of an address that is mostly vacant for a certain period of time, information that would be valuable to thieves. The same is true for my phone number most of the time. I rarely give out my true phone numbers. The businesses that think they just have to have my home phone number when they do not, such as online vendors and for store rewards or discount cards, get an old phone number I still "own" but no longer use (long story but having it saves me money on my ISP bill) with the exchange replaced with 555 (the exchange is the three numbers between the area code and the last four numbers). Anyone stupid enough to try to dial that number gets redirected to directory assistance. This has dramatically reduced the number of scam and spam calls I used to get.

    For that price, get the RTX 2080 Ti instead. That is an expensive af 1080Ti.

    Ryzen 3 2200g Upgrade

    I agree on both counts. If all you're doing is gaming, though, the extra cores won't do a ton for you on your CPU between a 2200G and a 1600. If you do processing heavy loads, then it's substantial.
  8. Hello! My friend bought himself a new CPU. After installing the new CPU, the following happened. His PC could not boot up with more than 1 RAM sticks. CPU: Amd phenom II 940 black edition MOBO: Ga ma770-ud3 rev1.0 (Bios F8) He tried this with many types of RAM, it only worked with one stick, once he puts 2, PC wont boot. His old CPU: Amd phenom x4 9550 The new CPU is supported with that mobo. He tried CMOS reset and that didn't help. Once he puts the old CPU back, then he can use all RAM slots once again. Any idea what is causing this problem? He tried to look for possible solutions but failed.
  9. I mean the magic mirror or anything that needs a remote server but not a lot of power. Face recognition should have its own dedicated pi or run on something more powerful, but I don't think you need a dedicated gpu if your goal is only to detect when you're in the frame.

    PSUs and Overclocking

    as long as you're not running a 12 core or higher Skylake-X or similar power draw CPUs you will be fine on the PSU's front

    Mega cheap 1070 ti titanium

    It worked for him though, lol. Ebay has buyer protection guarantee unlike LTT so I don't see the issue. I'm sure mods will find some reason it's not okay though.

    are M.2 SATA and NVMe

    I normally would agree in a benchmarks vs real world discussion....but not in this case. You are talking about a multitude of difference in the performance, and yes, you can feel it in everyday use. Perfect example, the work laptop I'm typing this on is a Latitude 7280 that supports both types of m.2 drives. There is a noticeable difference between the Intel SATA drive that it shipped with as compared to the Samsung 860 EVO NVME drive that I upgraded to. One could argue that it seems faster because my mind knows it was an upgrade. However, I went back to the SATA drive (had another use for the NVME) and I've regretted it. Boot times are slower, opening apps are slower, and the Fedora VM I run on the laptop is slower all around. In short, there is more than just a benchmark difference between the two. Given that prices are falling, if the opportunity is there to use NVME...I say go for it. No reason not to.

    What should my next upgrade be?

    Is it Occulus Rift that you're using then? What is your upgrade budget / location, my man? (sorry... Lady!) Let's do a little part picking?

    Selection between HDD and Hybrid HDD

    Ok but as you know SSDs are quiet expensive so I am actually plan to use only 256gb of SSD for the OS and purely dedicated to it so that I can have a fast and snappy experience. Also I am actually going to use the HDD to store a large amount of games as their primary use so in the end which is better HDD or Hybrid HDD. And thank you very much I appereciate the help.

    What should my next upgrade be?

    I agree, if I recall correctly the last time I ran orange room my graphics card was rated somewhere between 'minimum' and 'recommended' but closer to recommended...I don't remember the exact score. Right now, the main VR titles I play are star trek bridge crew, VR echo and robo recall.
