    Good certifications for IT?

    Learn some scripting with Python and PowerShell. Having some knowledge with VMWare(maybe look at their certs too, depending on what you wanna do in IT) will help as well.

    Best Place To Live if money didnt matter

    I'd probably stay in the same general area I'm in already. It's not the nicest, but I like it well enough. All that money would probably go towards acquiring various assets, funding various hobbies, and maybe an IRA.

    Rate my pc build

    -Moved to New Builds and Planning- Agreed, 8700 + B360 is probably the way to go if uses directly benefit from Intel processors. Otherwise, wait for Zen 2.

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Agreed. IBM systems are probably worth a pretty penny though, IBM hasn't manufactured anything for quite a while.

    VG278Q vs VG279Q (does 27 inch kill 1080p?)

    -Moved to Displays-

    Anyone else not crazy about RGB?

    I like RGB purely because it has a wider color range.

    How practical is 1 CPU 2 Gamers?

    Used market, sales, e-waste.
  9. See what you think of this.

      Would you like me to

      Not bad! Though I've always been bothered by songs that just cut off abruptly at the end.

      Seems a little too close to The Sopranos 😂Still salty.


      @Techstorm970 I see what you did there.

  10. G5 PSU appears to be dead.


    Gonna have to try and source a new one...

      What model year is it?


      Mine is a late 2005, dual core 2Ghz(single proc).

    3. firelighter487


      it's a 2004... it's an entirely different mobo too. i only have 4 ram slots. you should have 8... 

    4. Crunchy Dragon

      Crunchy Dragon

      Yeah, I have 8.

    How practical is 1 CPU 2 Gamers?

    I've noticed that most high end ATX boards have them, however they're usually not all electrically x16 slots.

    Except you could realistically run two gaming VMs on a Ryzen 5. You'd have to rely on threads to a certain extent, but you could probably get by. It wouldn't be pretty and Ryzen 7 would definitely be recommended, though. It really depends on space and budget, I would say. I could do that in my basement for me and my brother, but it wouldn't make sense because we easily have the space for two separate gaming machines. Budget comes into play a little bit. If you can afford two gaming rigs, that'll be more pleasant for everyone than having to set up and configure a 2 gamers/1 CPU setup.
  13. Power cable is here.


    Formatting my USB drive to prepare for a Linux install on the G5.

      Also, are you sure the G5 supports USB booting? I thought it had to be optical? 

    3. Crunchy Dragon

      G5 does not boot from USB.


      I don't have an ODD available, so I'm gonna install Linux on a hard drive and then the plan is to install the hard drive in the G5. If that doesn't work, I can see about trying to make a bootable CD or something.

    4. firelighter487


      @Crunchy Dragon that's not gonna work. unless you have a machine with a powerpc cpu in it to do the initial install.....

  14. Crunchy Dragon

    Yall think this is overkill

    FX What to Do

    Old systems like that are fun for messing around with in general. You could realistically do just about whatever you want with it, honestly.
