    My weak link GPU...

    The only bus-powered 560 I'm finding is the ripoff 896SP version, which the 1050Ti is still faster than, soooooo

    Really the only sensible option for something entirely bus powered to upgrade from a 750Ti is a 1050Ti.

    Wow look, I finally filled in the spot for numbers!

    May not be rare but this is enticing me a whole hell of a lot even though I know I do not have the funds necessary lmao https://www.ebay.com/itm/4GB-4X1GB-PC133R-333-542-Z-HB52RF1289E2-75B-133MHz-ECC-REG-RAM-TESTED/171360301204?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    Are membrane keyboards better for poor gamers like me?

    Even as someone who loves my Strafe with Reds, I'd be fine stepping down to one of Dell's membrane keyboards. Hell I've got one (albeit an annoying layout used down in Mexico) and honestly it's gotta be one of the least annoying modern membrane boards I've used. Genuinely my biggest complaint (aside from the layout) is the lack of media keys.

    setting up oculus rift with a 1050ti graphics card

    I cannot imagine the 1050Ti would be able to provide a decent VR experience in much of anything, so really you should upgrade anyways.

    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    Figured I'd post the halfway decent pics I took of the ol' daily for builds.gg here as well since I've never really posted decent ones of it.

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Dad got this 120GB feller to replace the trusty Hitachi 80GB 5.4KRPM ripper in my file server/video workhorse. Not having to wait multiple minutes for it to boot and then a few more to do anything will be nice. EDIT: Ok I'm salty how fast my file server boots now lol. Server 2012 R2 boots so quick you get about 3-5 seconds of the UEFI spinny boi and then you're dumped in the desktop and ready to go 3 seconds after that (about 20-25 seconds from button press to full chooch). Compared to my main rig that takes a full minute from button press to ready... Also peep my phone's increasingly bad camera. Hopefully that'll be fixed once mom has money to get my sister and lil ol me our upgrades.
  11. I could not resist dumping my meme of a system on builds.gg. It had to happen.

      Very nice! I've always had a soft spot for old optiplexes xD

    2. flibberdipper


      Thanks! And yep, these ol' lads always have a reserved spot for me (especially these newer "pointy" ones, would love to get one of the newer ones that's mostly blacked out).

      thats a new website for me, guess il spam everything i have ever build onto there now then

  12. Nah, I'll just keep going. Not gonna let some whiny guy on the internet tell me what I should do lmao
  13. By your impressive logic it's not a gaming monitor but an everything monitor.

    A message to the past

    I'd start off by going to younger versions of me and yelling "DON'T FUCKIN KILL THAT," and then go back to when my grandpa passed to make sure my mom's family couldn't pawn off his shit that actually had useful stuff in (yes, in) them.

    Valuation Advise on i7-3770 based System

    Pretty solid 375-425. I'd probably just list it for 450 and see what that gets you.

    Power Outlets PISSES LINUS OFF. [Discussion]

    Not sure what you're tying to get at but no. Only buildings that seem to use them are old houses that haven't been electrically updated for whatever reason.
  17. flibberdipper


    Yep. I got banned from his channel for being brutally blunt (can see that in my last status update if you care to). I do genuinely hope his channel gets curbstomped at the end of this.

    Power Outlets PISSES LINUS OFF. [Discussion]

    Hey ig rain gang, this is a weak argument considering its more material than an adapter, considerably more in fact because the unification BS would require replacing every outlet that there is. And then this argon-brain material... The hell are you doing? Plugging in a car and letting it hang off the outlet?

    So I watched the first bit of part two as well as part one, and that title is some fine-ass clickbait riding off the events of the week. He's building a PC for a judge, it's not even related to what the hell went down. This guy is tryna get those streams above his ~10K average so hard lmao

    Power Outlets PISSES LINUS OFF. [Discussion]

    And the waste of all old electronics and outlets is somehow better than adapters that really only a handful of people on this planet will use?
  21. flibberdipper

    Power Outlets PISSES LINUS OFF. [Discussion]

    Yes, because it making adapters for "pre-unifying" shit and overhauling all the outlets everywhere isn't a pain in the ass at all.

    This color was SO worth the 3-5 minutes I spent on it. Also a quick Sonic Blue Metallic recreation.

    Why are Cell Phone bills in the U.S. so high?

    None of our internet-y things make sense honestly. My mom has herself, my sister, and then me on an unlimited plan (technically supposed to throttle at 33GB but it does it at random) and each line is 25 bucks. Yet an unlimited data cable plan would be almost 150 bucks. Granted the speeds would be considerably higher since you don't have to deal with how piss poor our LTE is here, but still.

    Is it okay to keep reinstalling OS to SSD?

    You would have to write a pretty sizeable amount of data every day to impact an SSD's life in a meaningful way. Reinstalling Windows even once a week wouldn't do a whole hell of a lot.

    A GPU suggestion for my very old i7 3770

    RX 570 all the way. Also drop the very very old BS, they're still plenty competent because of how little Intel has really innovated.
