  1. Here are mine from 2006 (19/20 years old): February 2006 (at home) April 2006 (at first university) October 2006 (at second university) The case is a Cooler Master Cavalier 3. CPU upgrade path around that time: AMD Athlon XP 2700+ in 2003 AMD Athlon 64 3200+ in 2005 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ in 2007 GPU upgrade path around that time: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro in 2003 NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT in 2006 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS in 2007 I had a Sony Ericsson K800i mobile phone (upgraded to a Nokia N95 in 2007)
  2. This is current UK pricing: £750 - Ryzen 9 3950X £520 - Ryzen 9 3900X £450 - i9-9900K £430 - i9-9900KF £430 - i9-9900 £335 - Ryzen 7 3800X £330 - i7-9700K £320 - i7-9700 £290 - Ryzen 7 3700X I want to see, based on the average of x modern games (say, 10-20), what gaming performance is expected from the above. Any suggestions? For fun, these are the PassMark (a multi-threaded, server orientated, processor benchmark test) CPU scores for the above CPUs. 33,750 - £750 - Ryzen 9 3950X (current test samples: 2) 31,900 - £520 - Ryzen 9 3900X (current test samples: 1212) 24,570 - £335 - Ryzen 7 3800X (current test samples: 467) 23,860 - £290 - Ryzen 7 3700X (current test samples: 1703) 20,420 - £450 - i9-9900K (current test samples: 4196) 18,620 - £430 - i9-9900 (current test samples: 45) 17,210 - £330 - i7-9700K (current test samples: 2295) 15,920 - £320 - i7-9700 (current test samples: 179)
  3. Sure but for up to £60, I'm not going to get anything better than a gaming headset. It's only for one game at the moment, anyway So far, two votes for the Corsair HS60 (and due to Black Friday, the HS60 Pro is currently cheaper than the HS60).] EDIT: There's actually one wireless option that's very close to my budget but it's only available for this price during Black Friday:
  4. I want a cheap and cheerful headset to play PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds with (PC). I've done the below research. Any suggestions? Sorted by price Sorted by make and model
  5. It was a low-end GPU back upon release in October 2016 so I doubt it'll keep up much these days, even for some modern eports titles. Game-wise, it's holding back your i7-8750H.
  6. Here are my results: Shame it's ray tracing with lots of corner-cutting.
  7. todayilearned | explainlikeimfive Basically, toilet reading. Any suggestions?
  8. There's none in the UK on eBay UK, unfortunately.
  9. It's not the dashboard I want to use it on, it's the suction cup. Thankfully, no adhesive stuck to the dashboard.
  10. Something like this? www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133208160771 The foam has mostly recovered in the past few days, thankfully. That's what I want to do but not whilst there's strong adhesive on the suction cup. Since you were being condescending, I will be, too: Learn to read. Regarding vents, they're in poor positions in my car (2019 Ford EcoSport) for mounting phones, so I can't ideally go that route. Plus, I don't like the idea of high heat or cold, air-conditioned air directly hitting the rear of my phone for extended periods of time. I haven't but will try isopropyl alcohol, first
  11. I recently bought this: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123910576823 I wanted to mount it, using the adhesive on the suction cup, to the dashboard. However, as well as the fact it kept falling from the dashboard, it left an awful mark: Due to these facts, I got a full refund and went looking for the same mount (as the arm was perfect) but without the adhesive on the suction cup so I can use it on the windscreen. Unfortunately, I can't find one without said adhesive so I've been looking at removing the adhesive on the mount I got the refund for. Following random advice found via. Google, I soaked the cup in WD-40 for an hour and washed it away with soapy water but it's still extremely sticky. The WD-40 basically did not dissolve the adhesive in my case. Can anyone suggest an alternative to WD-40, that's also suction cup-safe?
  12. Larger-screen laptops and desktop PCs are not even in the same ball park.
