  1. My area had disappointing black Friday deals and I can't really complain about my setup. If I upgrade anything I'd need to upgrade a whole lot of stuff with it (4770 and 980ti, so upgrading either one would be expensive and be held back by the other anyway). So I'm guessing just a power bank or three to deal with loadshedding
  2. You're going to be waiting a long time for minimum 80 times the performance of current CPUs... Nevermind at a third of the cost.
  3. That's kind of sad... Even with new phones having been released it's not like this is an old phone. My 6s+ is still rocking the newest software and likely will be still be supported with security updates for a long while after feature updates stop supporting it. It's a shame, since I really want to jump ship from Apple, but I just don't want to have to change phone every 2 years. How realistic is just installing one of the third-party flavours for extended support?
  4. I'm using my locked 4770 with an OC 980ti at 1440p and I find they pair excellently. I reckon a 1080 would do fine, especially at higher resolutions. My only issue at this point is that upgrading either the CPU or the GPU would create a disparity in performance tiers between the two components, meaning that I've kind of maxed out my current PC configuration.
  5. Personally I think a flat bit, even a small one, on the top of the roof would improve it. At first I hated it, but the concept is growing on me. This is something built entirely to be practical and efficient at what it needs to do. It’s not the typical American pickup that’s built to compensate for insecurity, it’s something built to do things. That said, I don’t know if the range is big enough. Any real pickup work dramatically impacts range, and if those numbers are ideal then the real-world numbers will be disappointing
  6. I wonder how present these kinds of privacy “bugs” are in Instagram. Lots of people claim to not use Facebook because of privacy concerns and then still use Instagram
  7. Try different video cable I meant. Power cable isn’t too likely to be a problem, but I suppose it’s better to eliminate all possibilities
  8. Try a different cable. Try motherboard video output (if you have)
  9. The K70 is very much overhyped. Poor build (especially the wrist rest), non-standard bottom row, an obnoxiosly loud spacebar and at a fair amount higher in price than similar boards. Source: K70 owner I will restate my earlier point. It's some switches on a PCB. It's not a miracle and failure is unlikely. Don't fall for gaming company hype. You can get super cheap boards with better than Cherry switches and proper keycaps that will last a long time. Sharing some options might make recommendations easier, since keyboard availability doesn't seem to be universal
  10. Return the phone to your friend. If you stole it you're an ass and if he sold a non-working phone to you then it's between you two to sort it out. If you had knowledge of this beforehand and still paid for it he wouldn't be entirely wrong in denying a return however
  11. Logitech makes solid keyboards. The market is now full of smaller brands making keyboards with better switches than Cherry (Cherry is very much overrated) and still great build quality. I don't know what's available to you, but I have lots of Gamdias boards available to me and they're all great. These things are some switches attached to a PCB in a box. The marketing will try to convince you otherwise, but it's not really anything that magnificent. Don't fall for gaming companies' silly prices and edgy marketing. A decent option that seems to globally available is Redragon boards, there are several that are essentially variants of the same thing, I used the Vara and the Kumara. Great build quality and switches are to taste.
  12. It's not worth it. For the money spent on watercooling you could just buy a new GPU and maybe even a CPU and mobo. Your current air cooler is also a pretty good one, so I wouldn't worry about it.
  13. I don’t really see people that way. Everyone has flaws, and I’ve never been like “wow I wish I could be just like x”. I find how people work very interesting, and extrapolating what allowed them their success from their personality is IMO more valuable than just saying you want to be like them. A lot of people I’ve dealt with turn out to be assholes, and many people turn into a role model for what not to be
  14. Everyone: We want a new Crysis that really pushes modern hardware! Rockstar: releases game that looks amazing where ultra is actually difficult to run for current gen Everyone: muh optimizations!
