    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    You had me wet at Bigfoot. I'd kill to get another nice 19.2GB TS like I had before mine died. Thing was a beaut.

    Glad I'm not the only one with this problem. While I love making my daily machine as quiet as possible, for my XP/98 rigs I just love hearing the hard drives whirring and thunking away (especially the one in my 98 rig as it's just plain loud).

    For new build CRT monitor VS LCD monitor..

    Something like one of these might be right up your alley. Cheap as hell and not trash. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Nb3H99/dell-e2318hn-230-1920x1080-60-hz-monitor-e2318hn

    Once again, price is completely irrelevant for what you said initially. Just going "hurr durr price more higher so obviously more gooder" is a pretty bad counter argument. Counter with obvious facts that Ryzen is better for gaming and performs better in it or just stop lmao

    Irrelevant for what you said but at least you tried.

    R7 1700 GTX 1660 TI

    Have you watched a single video/read a single article comparing Ryzen chips to Intel? This guy has a 1060 and compared a 1700 to an 8600K (both seemingly at stock) and while it's not necessarily bottlenecking there's still a difference in literally every single game. Now whether or not you deem it worth caring about is obviously up to you, but it's still there.

    I was legally obligated to get these.

    Which GPU for my PSU?

    If you think he's drawing 300 watts with a 2600 and a 750 you should really take a step back and reconsider the garbage you spewed. Given the fact that my 3770 and 1050Ti draw less than 240 watts, and a 3770 and overclocked GTX 480 draw less than 400...

    I don't know why i bought a P1 when I have a Senna, but here we are. Good thing my F40 sold for 3M right after since that covered for this car and about 35-40% of the F40.

    Is there any info on DDR5 RAM ?

    Yep, sure need DDR5 for anything above 4,000 effective. https://pcpartpicker.com/products/memory/#s=404000,404133,404200,404266,404333,404400,404500,404600,404700,404800&sort=-speed&page=1
  12. Grandma's old HDD sure has a few hours on it. Sad part is that it's in better shape from a bad sector standpoint than a few of the other drives in my file server.

    Fun fact: The drive that's red had well under 1K hours on it before it started throwing bad sectors left and right, and yet it's still hanging in there with almost 16K hours.

    Solid alternative to Seagate Barracuda?

    Current Barracudas are fine... No idea what you're on about.

    Cleaning you mousepad?

    I tend to just get my mousepads damp with water, get some dish soap on 'em and scrub it, and then scrub the soap back out after a little bit of sitting with a lighter water flow.

    What is that?

    My eyes lead me to believe it's an LGA 775 Pentium 4 clocked at 3.4GHz, with further eyeing and a bit of finger input telling me it supports hyper-threading.

    P300 to motherboard

    Considering on the product page it lists compatibility with the "big 3" (Asus Aura, MSI Mystic Light, and Gigabyte RGB Fusion), I would dare say that you can plug it into the board. On your board there's RGB headers in the bottom left, and the case should have an RGB lead that would match up to one of them.

    Help me to resist urge to buy this ridiculous thing

    Buy it. I dare you.

    Is 30 degrees too hot

    For idle its more than fine, as long as all cores are reasonably close to each other. What really matters is that they're not idiotically high (like 65-70) idling, and that they're under 90 under load.
  19. Well below your budget, but I've been plenty happy with my Arctis 7. Changing the mic settings from whatever the hell default was to DVD quality helped a hell of a lot with quality (obviously still not close to a dedicated mic but its plenty acceptable for Discord or in-game voice).
  20. If my dead brain read it right, that would indeed be the answer (unless you find some decent ethernet dongles that do the trick).

    My MacBook Pro 15" Late 2011 Review - This is a weird one

    To be fair, you should be able to "Hackintosh" it to get Mojave on it. If this old boi can do it, by all means you should be able to.

    What are your must have PC accessories?

    Gotta have my TP-Link 7+2 USB hub. PC is in an inconvenient spot to plug shit into the back 3.0 ports, and I don't much care for scratching up the face of it missing the ports. And the pair of 2.4A charging ports are really damned handy. Aside from that probably my headset's receiver dealio, since that's my only audio interface (though I can plug my headset into any 3.5mm jack tbf).

    Will this power supply fit this micro atx case

    Considering the OP linked a PSU costing less than half that, I would dare say it's too much.

    Will this power supply fit this micro atx case

    It can, but I super wouldn't recommend it. You can do so much better for the money...
