  1. What other provider? This is the major problem here. No choice, no competition to speak of. If you are lucky, you have two or three choices. Most of the time, it only one good choice. And, I would be thrilled with 100GB cap. I have to deal with a 20GB cap and that cost me 80 bucks month. And no, I don't have choice. It is that or dail-up out here.
  2. Reason I play the extreme patience game. I knew one was going to come the moment I saw the first Titan X (Pascal) specs. Yeah, the air cooler on a ZOTAC AMP! Extreme is a monster. I'm keeping that one for tinkering (did a trade for that one). It clocks over 1500MHz on air with stock BIOS.
  3. Then again, how many actually watch 4K content on a PC? Heck, most around here still either buying or sticking to 1080P TVs. (Like no joke, I sold my parents' 1080P six year old TV for 100 bucks) It probably the studios. They tend to be tight wads with their rights on content. Don't blame them, they making a killing. But at the end, the content going to get rip sooner or later. Myself, buying the 4K HDR player and TV came out cheaper.
  4. You not only one. I have a player that can stream 4K content. I doubt that has a GPU like that in it. (Though, streaming is useless for me with a 20GB cap) But seriously, I said crap it and bought a player on sell. Way cheaper than dealing with all the requirements to have the PC run that content.
  5. I see why. Nice build up. Plus, very nice guitar solo too.
  6. Oh, crap, one of my fav singers! Definitely nabbing that CD.
  7. Pretty much. I have Seagate and WD. All still running, some over 10 years old at that. I think I have a Hitachi drive too around here. (I buy what ever is cheaper at the time) Anyway, this finally showed up. Darn, one bad thing of living in country side. Deliveries take forever. I will run some tests on my 980Tis before switching so I can show data points for any interested. Size compare to my my spare GTX980Ti. Dwarfs the poor 1080Ti with its air cooler.
  8. Well, one: no space on desk for both my computers, two: poor desk probably could not handle the main rig, three: no room for bigger desk. So, mine stay on the floor. (and yes, it is carpet). Yeah, big computer cases are a problem. Once I have the room, the Caselab TX10 will be my main case and that stinker dwarfs the desk.
  9. Different WUs give different amount of points. Also, the faster a WU is done, the higher the quick return bonus is. This the reason a WU on a different GPU will give different points compare to another GPU. Even the same GPU at different clock speeds will receive different amount of points. In the case of like say a small GPU, that GPU would have to do far more WUs to equal the amount of points a larger GPU can do on fewer WUs. Even more so, if a person is folding with a CPU. Kind of the reason back on my home team, I have many WUs done, but new folders easily catch up in points with fewer WUs (I been folding since GTX480s and GTX580s). There even older folders than me who done more WUs (individuals from the days of bigadv folding). And, I already passed them on that team.
  10. Agree, preferences change over time. Myself, almost done with my first degree this term. No longer game near the levels I use to, but I found more enjoyable hobbies instead. Then again, I never been a huge gamer on PC.
  11. CPU can fold, but compare to GPU, far less efficient. Though, note, CPUs do different work units compare to the GPUs. I usually have my GPUs do F@H while I have my CPU do BOINC projects. Now, back in the days of bigadv with F@H. 2P and 4P setups were kings. Bigadv though is no longer around. Or, if LTT team wants to get on the fun. SETI.Germany is hosting the 8th BOINC Pentathlon. The LTT team should join. It is a very interesting event.
  12. I lay my wrist on the keyboard's black wrist area. It is an AMD chip that I won in a prize draw. I just put it there for the moment. Have to pull my little totes out later to store it for a bit.
  13. My desk. In a some what half straighten mess. Usually looks worse.
