  1. I hope he is not being demoted for that, I think he is in the right, it's not like they were jamming in the night...
  2. I'm building up upper body strength with a conveniently shaped and high enough beech branch I'm using as a pull up bar in my garden. I was using some better facilities nearby but those are not accessible... Anyway after a few months I can do things I would have dreamed possible in the past lol It isn't strictly something I picked up during quarantine but I have more time to train now for sure.
  3. Do you have this sensation in other videos? Or just this one? Maybe we can find a constant
  4. That sounds like a good idea, thanks! I will keep updated on the upcoming events.
  5. You can't avoid laughing at a classic joke Thanks for the advice @Lo-teq! I will try that
  6. Hi all! I joined the LTT folding team and I want to contribute, but I was wondering if it's wise to use my laptop to fold? It is a late 2016 razer blade with a gtx 1060, so my doubts do not spawn from its computational power, but from the thermals. Is it ok to keep it under load all day long? What can I expect to happen if I keep at it for a week, a month, several months? Thank you and happy folding!
  7. Maybe you could explain how to spot good PSUs... The bronze/silver/gold/etc rating is not the definitive way to choose them and it is a really important component that can fry every expensive toy one can have!
  8. Ah OK, I thought that link was legit, thanks for the heads up
  9. Thank you for the monitor and video card recommendations, I really like the case as well! I looked into that problem, but I found out that MSI mobos like the bazooka can be upgraded without the CPUs as described here https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=313869.0
  10. I took your advice, I ended up with this: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $327.89 @ B&H Motherboard MSI B450M BAZOOKA V2 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $79.18 @ OutletPC Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $164.99 @ Amazon Storage Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $94.99 @ Amazon Video Card MSI GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card $659.99 @ Newegg Case NZXT H400 MicroATX Mini Tower Case $114.98 @ NZXT Power Supply Corsair RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $99.99 @ Newegg Monitor Asus MX27AQ 27.0" 2560x1440 60 Hz Monitor $399.00 @ Amazon Monitor Acer XB271HU bmiprz 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor $549.99 @ B&H Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $2511.00 Mail-in rebates -$20.00 Total $2491.00 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-25 05:47 EDT-0400 Now I am more comfortably in the budget, I just need to find better prices here in Europe now. If anyone has other suggestions I'm all ears! Regarding the 2080ti, I still have to think about it... It costs a lot more than the 2080. Maybe if I find some deal I could consider it, I don't know... I still wonder if working at 144 Hz would be more enjoyable than at 60 Hz, I have never experienced more than 60 Hz in my life ahah
  11. I like it a lot, thanks! It also has space for 120mm fans, which is what I wanted?
  12. Is there a tangible difference between 2080, 2080super and 2080ti? Thanks for the tip on the case, I don't know much about them, you happen to know of a better mATX case with a similar esthetics? I'll look into the storage and psu at once! Thanks! Wouldn't it be weird though to work on both of them, while keeping one at 144 and one at 60 Hz?
  13. Hi everyone! I'm looking to upgrade my current pc, which is an i7-2600k with 16GB ram DDR3 (4x4gb config), no video card and two vga 1080p monitors and a cheap 256GB SATA SSD. My mobo is a p8h77-v. I am a web developer, so sometimes that 16GB of RAM is not enough, and I have seen my pc freeze because it had no more RAM available in certain situations. The i7 still works reasonably well, but the responsiveness of the system is not ideal and the stock cooling gets quite loud. I would like to have two 1440p 144Hz displays and be able to comfortably work on them and to play games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Doom and AC Odissey at ~100fps at max settings on one of them (I don't think it is currently possible to get 144fps on those AAA games at max settings afaik). Also I would really like to buy a Valve Index down the line... Like not immediately but maybe next year. This is the build I came up with, it is just a little overbudget, but it makes sense to me: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $327.89 @ B&H Motherboard MSI B450M BAZOOKA V2 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $79.18 @ OutletPC Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $164.99 @ Amazon Storage Corsair MP510 960 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $135.99 @ Newegg Video Card MSI GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card $659.99 @ Newegg Case NZXT H500 ATX Mid Tower Case $69.99 @ Best Buy Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $85.88 @ OutletPC Monitor Acer XB271HU bmiprz 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor $549.99 @ B&H Monitor Acer XB271HU bmiprz 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor $549.99 @ B&H Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $2663.89 Mail-in rebates -$40.00 Total $2623.89 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-24 07:07 EDT-0400 I don't really care much about ray tracing, however if I understand correctly, gaming at 1440p with high refresh rate requires at least a 2080. That's also why I opted for gsync, since I am getting that card and I want buttery smooth performance. Also, I don't really know if the Ryzen 7 is overkill or not... If that is the case, maybe the Ryzen 5 3600x could be a better choice... Does it makes sens to you guys? I still have to scour the internet to find better deals, so I am just using the price on pcpartpicker to have an estimate. More info: I am in Italy, prices are not nearly as good as in the US but I am not in a hurry to complete the build, I can wait for some deals when I find them. In the accessories department I don't feel like I need improvements: my solar powered logitech k750 still works fine and my razer deathadder is fine by me. Hope I was thorough enough.
