  1. With a custom build that I built? Never, really. Worst I had was my computers unexplained inability to play Unreal Engine games for 2 years. Which I finally by chance tracked down to Corsair Link. But that's software, not hardware. Hardware issues? Really nothing. I mean, dead components here and there, yeah, but that happens. Just buy a new component to replace it.
  2. Alternatively, you can just do what I did; Remove the arm rests entirely. I generally have my arms resting on my desk regardless. Though this encourages me to sit cross-legged in my chair to give my elbow something to rest on at times.
  3. Not entirely sure what you're asking about here. Generally, modern games will run even on old drivers - I hadn't updated my NVIDIA drivers for like 3 months when I played Prey and it didn't really care. Windows updates don't do a thing to gaming - in Windows 10 they only apply the next time you reboot the computer, so you can have one queued up for weeks if it's an always-on system like my main rig is. I've never had file corruption on ANYTHING without deliberately screwing with the files (in which case, always make a backup) The unoptimized part is more just...shitty console ports. Which isn't nearly as big of a problem in the current generation as the PS4 and XB1 are both actual PC hardware. Last gen it was terrible. PCMR is toxic, but so are pre-pubescent console kids. So...
  4. Night theme all day long.
  5. ESET is good, but don't pay money for it. If you can get it for free (I could when I worked at Best Buy and Microcenter) then it's great. Otherwise, just use Avast or AVG. Arguably you don't even need those if you browse smart. Malwarebytes and Windows Defender is generally enough.
  6. Nah, that was just me bashing on Best Buy morons. I don't even understand why they do the upsell - it's not like they get commission, and Fry's and Microcenter (which do get commission) don't do the upsell because they know if you get a piece of shit you don't want you're going to return it and they're not gonna get money anyway.
  7. I worked at the blue shitshow and didn't care about doing those upsells because I'd already worked at Microcenter and Fry's beforehand and realized that actually selling a customer what they need gets more sales than trying to talk them into something that gets me or the company the most money.
  8. This is an unpopular opinion??? They're a very good pair of headphones. I just happened to get my HD 280s for a little cheaper...
  9. But it is profitable, and companies are doing it. Why do you think there aren't any RX 570s and 580s to be found? Rofl. Do you really think that just a few random dudes buying a couple 580s here and there would clear the stock of 580s out and drive the price up $100? Come on bro, AMD isn't struggling that much. I don't even have all six of my graphics cards mining right now (driver issues with my NVIDIA cards is killing my hashrate on them and because riser cards suck) but Im making enough money out of the two that are running that they would cover the electricity cost of the other four GPUs and still have enough money to pay themselves back eventually.
  10. The only type of Romer-Gs are the one switch type they use in the Logitech keyboards I would recommend going for mATX over mITX. As someone who's had both - mATX is still very portable if you get the right case for it, and you've got a lot more options. I would only get mITX if you are absolutely, 150% sure you are never going to want SLI/Crossfire in it and that you are never going to be wanting any networking/RAID/other cards alongside your GPU.
  11. Whatever you can get the cheapest out of this stuff.
  12. To the first: I don't know if I would say they're better, but I love the Romer-Gs (I think they feel like better Browns, personally) and the Topres and then I legit can't tell the difference from Gaterons when it comes to blues and browns.
  13. Ethereum or Ethereum Classic are your best bets to mine right now. If you want to go through the trouble of dual mining, Decred and Siacoin are probably your secondary currencies of choice.
  14. As a miner: For Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, yes, it's financially feasible to buy a brand new RX 580 and make a profit off of it. As a gamer: That being said, it's a dick move.
  15. If you're at stock clocks and voltages, Probably about $40 if you're just mining ETH or ETC, $50-60 if you're dual mining like Siacoin/Decred alongside.
