    Outside of computers/gaming, what hobbies do you guys have?

    Electric skateboarding. I built my own board and it costs more than my computer. Sure is fun going 30+ miles an hour on a skateboard I made myself though.
  2. I haven't really been following laptops or computer hardware lately and need some advice. I need a laptop suitable for moderate Excel while at work and light gaming on the side when I'm home or on the go. SSD is a requirement even if it's not very large, and a resolution higher than 1080p is a must. I would like a metal construction but know that's where things start to get costly. Not really into the "gaming" look of most laptops and would prefer a clean simple design. Budget is $1000 but there's wiggle room. Thanks my dudes.

    I Need a Laptop for Work & Home <$1000

    Games like Terraria, maybe Minecraft, CSGO, nothing too demanding. 1080p isn't quite enough for me really now that I have used friends computers with higher resolutions and crisper text and what have you. Definitely not as noticeable with a small laptop screen but I want to give it a go. I had hoped this would be within budget but I might be able to spend a bit more, maybe post Thanksgiving sales will help.

    LAN gaming with no internet access?

    This thanksgiving me and a few family members are going camping out in the desert and want to play a few games like Terraria and such together. Since there's probably no 4g internet out there would setting a phone as a hotspot work? I get that we wouldn't be able to go online but can we still connect and play?

    LAN gaming with no internet access?

    And the switch + some ethernet cables would be all I need to set up a network?

    TKL Mechanical Keyboard With Cable Routing?

    Ducky or if you have the money, HHKB. Avoid all the "gamery" keyboards as they often have non standard bottom rows, some have crappy switches, and not stealthy. r/mechanicalkeyboards can help you out alot in this respect. What switch type are you looking for? Linear? Tactile? cherry? Alps? That's the first thing to look for and see what you want. If you have no idea you can always head down to BestBuy and try out their show boards, although I'm pretty sure it's just Razer switches, Logitech ones, and Cherry browns.

    Nvidia ANSEL Screenshot Blurr

    When taking screenshots in The Witcher 3 with ANSEL at high resolutions everything seems slightly blurred. If you zoom in a lot and then back out quickly you can see the quality increase until it refreshes that part of the picture. Any ideas of what's going on here? I can upload some screenshots when I get home if need be. Thanks for your help.
  8. Make no mistake, I only come here when reddit is down.

      Any legal action being taken by any parties?

      Scary tbh.


      Though it doesn't look like the way you drew was really an intended crossing so I mean sorta his negligence but could be argued yours too. 
      The most he/his insurance might be able to do is get you/your car insurance to pay a certain percentage of any medical bills related to the incident.

      I'm suprised he couldn't see you. You shouldn't assume there isn't another car behind the one you can see.

  10. I've got a 2001 Saturn L100 bought at scrap value from someone who couldn't pay the ~$1200 to repair it. Probably be like a scrap yard computer which some kid cleaned up and gave to their grandparents with a beige case. P4 era.

    A build that is IMPOSSIBLE for Linus to build.

    I dunno if it's already been said because I'm lazy, but power wouldn't be the problem. Running four of those cards would be 8 390x's l, and xfire only supports two.
  12. New psu, seems to be working correctly. 


    $100 for EVGA 850 bq. Worth?

    Worst medical condition you've ever had?

    I lost a leg?
  15. Well rip phone screen. I was getting out of my car after a ling tiring trip, when it slides out of my hand carrying my headphones, charger, and it. Gotta say, it lasted awhile. I guess Nokia isn't up to its revered build quality anymore.

    My psu us kaput and I'm running my pc off of two psu's. It won't run on high load.
  17. Computer turned off during a game of World of War Ships and won't post. I'm at wits end.

    1. connorpiper


      Sounds fun. I should try my PSU in your computer and see if it continues to have issues.

    What's the reputation for Balistix DDR4?

    It's Crucial, so it shouldn't be too bad. I had the ddr3 TT which were nice, if not overly expensive for $55 per stick of 4 gigs.
