  1. So, what were those 2 components in the first gaming PC that you actually owned yourself? My CPU was the dual core Intel E5200 on the 775 socket, this was a popular desktop chip and good bang for buck at the time.
  2. So yeah, got an email today from G2A stating that they have launched the ability for customers to list game keys for sale on their site, when browsing for games you can filter to community posted listings now and see users keys up for sale. I went ahead and began a 'sell' form to see the process and it simply asks you to type the key into a box, and set a price, when someone buys it the key is revealed instantly just as it would be if you were to purchase a key from their own listings. This has a distinct advantage over eBay because you don't have to wait for a seller to send you a key, not to mentiont eBay doesn't officially allow the sale of digitally delivered CD keys. Also they seem to have a system in place to prevent people from abusing tha PayPal chargeback system after having redeemed your code. Here are the T&Cs of the site and service, it will be interesting to see if this works or not, there seem to be a lot of keys floating about from GPU deals ect so it could mean more of them getting listed for sale rather than given away. https://www.g2a.com/terms-and-conditions/
  3. Roll up Roll up! Get your bargains and let's have some fun! Simply click on GabeN to begin your journey, may his light guide you, may your wallet be strong. Maybe post what you bought? I have added the current 'Daily Deals' 'Flash Sales' and 'Community Choice' to spoilers under this line, these will be updated as they change throughout the next 2 weeks and the chosen currency to display them in is USD.

    Askew is moving on

    I spend a crazy amount of time here and it's creating the situation where by I am losing out on other things in my life by posting here so much/reading this forum so I'm going to bring it to an end. LTT has grown rapidly since I joined, and on its current trajectory will continue to do so, good luck to Linus, Slick and the team for the future, you guys are awesome and I'll still be watching your videos and the WAN show, just not in the chat because I'm banned. So yeah, it's been good, LTT is a great place and the most newbie friendly community I've ever been a part of, sure it has its flaws but it's golden at the core despite them, thanks to everyone who's made my stay here pleasant and sorry to all the people I've been a prick to. I don't like flouncers who leave in a hissy fit but that really isn't me, this is a good terms goodbye that I'm posting so as not to just go without saying anything, some people might consider me rude otherwise. Some of you will miss me as I've made a few friends here, some of you won't and this will be good news for you, I may return in time or there may be occasional posts from me from time to time, but for the most part I'll be gone, I have to be. Stay classy LTT.

    Mozilla to release an official 64bit build of firefox

    I didn't say you hated it, but you will forgive me for assuming that in order for you to 'miss' it the implication was that you had not used it for at least some time. What you said in your first post and what I've just quoted differ. I think the FF UI is subjective, I'm happy with it how I have it set up currently.

    Do you not see the hypocrisy of your unhappiness with the way people come into Apple related threads to make comments just like you have made here? You don't use it and don't like it, that's OK but we don't care.
  8. Posts like this are how these children get their reputations, stop talking about them ffs. I swear every time i lurk here the hot topic is always some sensationalist crap what is with you guys. this one however takes the cake.......... http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/227572-microsoft%E2%80%99s-windows-10-has-permission-to-watch-your-every-move/
  9. The situation with the behaviour of US telecoms corps is a global joke at this point.
  10. Could be some kind of elaborate tax/liability avoidance, especially considering their recent push to ship everything to anyone anywhere.
  11. Get a Z97 board and a DC pentium or whatever you can afford, upgrade the CPU later when you have the money. The old AMD platforms do not offer the same level of upgrade path, and you'd get SATA3 and USB3 right now on Z97. Considering the number of PCIE 3.0 lanes you will require along with other features, you could consider the Z97-K from ASUS, the Z97-A from ASUS for a slightly higher priced but more fully featured option. The MSI Z97-G55 SLI and SLI PLUS are good budget options also, as is the Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3 and GA-Z97X-SLI
  12. He has profited nicely from this, and has made 3 more videos about it lol Yes I have posted something, couldn't resist commenting on this, that is incredible viral status and goes to show how widespread awareness of the issue is.

    FAIL - Gigabyte eSupport

    The answer is no, you need a Z87 or Z97 chipset to overclock a 4670K by multiplier.

    FBI concerned over iOS and Android devices encryption

    Good, if everyone has their privacy respected at one time it is no longer possible to point fingers at the few who take it for themselves and try to assume they are criminals.
  15. I'm not entering, but I just wanted to tell you that reading this made me happy and I wish you the best of luck going forward. I understand your predicament and I made a similar thread not so long ago with the intention to allocate time elsewhere. I still lurk and post much less frequently but I've cut it well back, the addiction aspect is very real and with you especially your posts are not all short ones or one liners, a lot of those are long and high effort postings which just goes to show post count doesn't really mean a lot. You're a resourceful and intelligent person, I'm sure you'll win if your mind's in the right place and I'd say what you're doing is a step in the right direction. It's been good having you around but don't be tempted to look back, pillars of salt don't have dreams.
