  1. Show off your latest purchase!

    Got the 2200G! Paid $65 never used. It’s even signed by one of my favorite YouTubers, OzTalksHW! This is going in my HTPC.
  2. Show off your latest purchase!

    Right? I’m excited.
  3. Show off your latest purchase!

    So as you know, GPU pricing has been kinda fucked lately. To the point where I’m recommending people go used instead of new. Even GTX 1050s and RX 560s are usually at least $150, when MSRP is like $110 or $120 for both cards. Well this has led to an issue for me, as I want to upgrade the GPU in my HTPC, but the OEM motherboard will only accept GPUs that don’t require external power. That’s a 4GB 560. I paid $100 for it. Free shipping too. Now look at the highlighted portion. It isn’t the gimped 560 that has the same amount of compute units as the 460 (14). This is the full fledged RX 560 with all 16 compute units, or 1024 stream processors. For $100. I haven’t seen prices like this since before miners started fucking things over. I think this will be a good card for my HTPC.

    I'm getting ready to try something fun.

    Thanks, I’m excited to get it!
  6. What did your first build/computer consist of?

    First build? AMD Athlon X4 860K 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 at 1866MHz Asus A68HM-Plus 1TB Seagate Hybrid Drive GTX 950 Vivo Case-V02 EVGA 600B. It did well enough, I liked it. I'll even fully admit I'm nostalgic for the 860K as a result. I was happy with that PC.

    So a youtuber I really like just sold me a brand new, unused, 2200G. He’s opening it to sign the cooler, box, and heatspreader though!

    So a YouTuber I really like was selling a signed 2200G on his discord. Signing the box, cooler, and heatspreader. Got it for $65
  9. BUDGET PC?!

    450W will be more than enough. 8GB is fine and you won’t run out of vram with an APU. 16GB is better though, and if you can fit it in, get that instead. Just make sure it’s at a fast speed, like at least 3000MHz. APUs rely heavily on faster ram, and dual channel ram... so make sure it’s a kit with two sticks.
  10. How bad is Weed?

    That’s fine if that’s an asshole to you. I grew up in Dallas, where a good portion of people smoked weed. I know the difference between a douche and an asshole. The people I knew weren’t douches. So, I’d really appreciate it if you’d stop trying to tell me what I experienced.
  11. How bad is Weed?

    No, these people would become assholes.
  12. BUDGET PC?!

    Alright, I'll help some. You have a Ryzen APU. Which is plenty for MMOs, esport titles, and Doom. Because you have a Ryzen APU, ax the dedicated GPU. It's unneeded in this case Because you're using a Ryzen APU, GET DUAL CHANNEL MEMORY. So at least an 8GB kit that has two 4GB sticks. Make sure it's fast RAM also, at least 2800MHz, at the very least. (I recommend something higher than 3000MHz). You don't need that fancy of a case, get something cheaper... unless you like it, in which case, carry on. Change out the PSU for something that's just actually good. With the money saved by axing the GPU, get a B350 motherboard so you can overclock that APU. You'll need storage, unless you got that. If you decide to got the APU route I recommend this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($223.00 @ Shopping Express) Motherboard: *ASRock - AB350M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($84.00 @ IJK) Memory: *Team - Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($133.00 @ Umart) Case: Thermaltake - Versa H17 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($45.00 @ Umart) Power Supply: Corsair - CX (2017) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($65.00 @ Shopping Express) Total: $550.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-06-09 15:41 AEST+1000 Otherwise, this would fit more in the budget you currently have: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1400 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.00 @ PCCaseGear) Motherboard: *ASRock - AB350M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($84.00 @ IJK) Memory: *Team - Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($133.00 @ Umart) Video Card: *Asus - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Phoenix Video Card ($238.00 @ Umart) Case: Thermaltake - Versa H17 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($45.00 @ Umart) Power Supply: Corsair - CX (2017) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($65.00 @ Shopping Express) Total: $764.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-06-09 15:42 AEST+1000 Either way, both of these would give you a lot better price to performance over your current selection.
  13. How bad is Weed?

    Like others have said, smoking too much of anything, including weed, is bad for your lungs. But that's beating a dead horse. For the most part though, people I've seen get high off of weed become complete assholes. But not everyone. Granted the few people I've been around is anecdotal, so it's not really representative of the vast majority of people. I've tried it a couple times also, never cared for it. Doesn't do anything for me.

    Fortnite is fun.

    Hell yeah! It'll make a nice boot drive for it, that's for sure
