    I'm a dude from the Ontario area. Most of my PC knowledge comes from pulling apart computers at a young age, only to piece them back together again. My other knowledge is supported by the search function that this forum has. I'd suggest using that to learn. :)

  1. Aliexpress legit?

    Check your E-mails and see if you have any E-mails from them asking for you to verify something. 9/10 times, I wouldn't trust those sites because just like Amazon, they're a marketplace, based somewhere in the world with many people offering items for sale at low low prices.
  2. This graphics card has no video made on it

    It's literally a compute card. Consumers/Prosumers have no reason to buy this unless they're doing calculations that require a GPU capable of doing those calculations.
  3. Prices in Canada Computers for 2080Ti pre-orders. (All prices in CAD)


    ....Guess I'll die.

      I  think you can build a computer with a 8700/1800x and a 1080 in it for these prices

      Which year do we have? looks like end 2017

      @SupremeGOAT A friend of mine built a 8700 based PC for roughly less than these prices. Can't wait to see when the prices of the 1080/1080ti go down.


      @James Evens Uhhh, the year where mining went crazy.

  4. Nice. This is well overdue.
  5. 20 series when

    Depends on your region. I live in Canada and have already seen the 10 series cards drop around 10-15%, but it's entirely subjective depending on what you're looking to buy and where.
  6. Okay lets try this again. Sine Wave UPS. Yes or no? Does Sine wave even matter?

      Ask it in general discussion not status update, then much more people will see it.

  7. Question for all my people who work with electronics. Regarding Sine Waves and stuff like that.


    I'm going to be purchasing a UPS just because I have a nas and a gaming PC along with a monitor and a bluetooth speaker soundbar. Would it make any sense to buy a UPS that advertises "Sine Wave" right in its name? Like is it even worth buying?


    These are the two I've considered:

    1. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00429N19W/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1
    Which has the Sine Wave protection thing. Obviously if I don't need it, I don't need it.


    2. https://www.amazon.ca/CyberPower-CP1500AVRLCD-Intelligent-Outlets-Mini-Tower/dp/B000FBK3QK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1535587845&sr=8-3&keywords=UPS&dpID=41ZpxIiuVVL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch


    This one doesn't have the Sine Wave thing, but it has what I need, which is just the battery backup, and enough plugs in the rear for whatever I need. Any thoughts?

  8. What is Intel hiding other than their dismay for AMD knocking them off their rocker?
  9. How to avoid customs on PC parts?

    CBSA is very strict on people coming in and leaving the country. I would assume your boarder services in Croatia are also very serious. They need to know what you're bringing in and expect you to pay taxes on things you import to the country, because you are importing them after all. Certain things are duty free, and this link seems to explain what tariffs you'd have to pay if you're importing from a country listed. I've typed everything from "Personal Computer" to "Laptop" to "Graphics Card" just to try and search for an item, and couldn't find anything. If you're in Canada, I'd try contacting your Embassy to find out more information.
  10. How to avoid customs on PC parts?

    I read on a website that things like laptops and certain electronics can be imported to Croatia duty free. However, it is extremely subjective because I can't seem to find a Croatian Government website that tells me otherwise.
  11. Ryzen 3 2200G vs 2400G?

    Budget, budget, budget. You never know what you can find with how much you have. How much do you have to spend?
  12. Hooray for power surges.

  13. How to remove WindowsOld Files

    I just use CCleaner, but to each their own. Disk Cleanup does the job pretty much as you want it though.
  14. Help with laptop choice

    Question... Why a laptop when you can get a really good desktop for that price point?
