    Brooksie359 got a reaction from Whiro in What card to get?   
    If you can grab the regular 2060 for 300 ish that is what I would get as it has the special codec that does good quality streaming using gpu encoding and it is solid for 1080p gaming.

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from SocomSuade in Ok deal - Ryzen 5 3600 - $180 - YMMV   
    Literally always 180 at the local microcenter and today its actually selling for 170. Granted they sellout as well because of that and the motherboard bundle deals.

    Brooksie359 reacted to BarackOBatman in Question about GT 710 and monitor support   
    I would advise saving your money. There's nothing wrong with running all 3 monitors off of the 5700xt

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from theAnxious1 in My new PC :)   
    Honestly with all the driver issues with the rx 5700 and rx 5700 xt I wouldn't recommend it for new pc builders. Just way to much of a hassle go fix.

    Um.. that's an AMD B450 motherboard, and that CPU is definitely not AMD.
    What exactly did you already buy?

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from BarackOBatman in Troubleshooting my RX 580   
    It could just be a normal fps dip as it is not uncommon to experience an fps dip in a game especially on 4 core cpus.

    Brooksie359 reacted to Bombastinator in What to choose?   
    Heh.  Minor grammar point:
    “has a bachelors” means he has a college degree.  “Is a bachelor” means he is an unmarried male.  “Is a bachelor in cyber security” implies he remains unmarried because of his interest in computers.  Which very well may be the case but is still funny to me.  Yes.  English is annoying.

    Though playing devil's advocate or tinfoil hat man, who's to say the base clock wasn't set that low deliberately to avoid hitting this definition?

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from dalekphalm in The end of lightning is nigh, possibly.   
    Honestly I think apple should be able to use what cables and ports it wants and should not have to use some universal standard because the EU said so. I'm sorry but I don't want the EU making up rules for what tech companies can do with their own technology.

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from scuff gang in [mini] Cyberpunk 2077 delayed to September 17th, 2020.   
    Yeah it is way better to release a game when it's ready rather than release a game that is playable but has a ton of bugs. I would mention fallout 76 but that couldn't be called playable at launch.

    Brooksie359 reacted to Donut417 in I'm building a PC in the summer. What will be out by then?   
    Where the fuck do you live where the ISP equipment is free? Comcast will charge your ass $14 a MONTH for a fucking gateway. Always buy your own.

    Brooksie359 reacted to Jumballi in I'm building a PC in the summer. What will be out by then?   
    if you're build a pc in the summer, ask then, every bit of info today will be out of date then

    also stay away from razer, get a netgear or linksys, there's no such thing as a 'gaming' router, you just pay more for the gaming branding.

    Brooksie359 got a reaction from MyNameIsWyatt in 8gb ram installed, 5.9gb usable? Help!   
    This is an old thread where they talk about it. You can change it in the bios to I think 500 megabytes at the lowest.

    2GB is shared with your iGPU

    Brooksie359 reacted to ErrantNyles in Switch is now Nintendo's third best-selling home console, VGChartz   
    The big difference here is that Nintendo has started selling consoles in the early 80s, while Sony has started halfway in the 90s. Plus, Nintendo has made a lot more consoles (as a platform) than Sony.
     
    They are the biggest players of the console market in history, but to be fair Nintendo is the king of "on the way" experiences while Sony is pretty much undefeated in the home segment since it has existed (With a self-inflicted kick in their balls with the launch of PS3, from which they recovered well).
     
    Microsoft is the only one that has pretty much always just struggled and became a niche.
     
    PS: And don't forget that Nintendo tried to kill the PS1...

    Might be time to reapply thermal paste or clean out ventilation or both.

    Most of those 51000 tons of garbage are made by idiots who can't take the most basic care of cables. Not because Apple uses Lightning cable and most others use USB-C...

    This seems..... A bit overreaching.
