    I am an enthusiast mostly who has fallen away from gaming to become more enthused about the hardware that runs it. I've always been on the PC with my first machine running XP with a 1 Ghz CPU 2 GB RAM and 256GB VRAM a 8400 GS. My greatest hope is that mods will become a mainstream thing and once consoles die to phones and the economy the PC will still stand, maybe not exactly the same but it will still relent as the highest tier of the chart of performance. I believe that while enthusiasm for new tech is great, you must be persistent in your ideals for cheaper stuff with things non-existent to many people such as a budget, or Price-Performance. My next big upgrade will be to buy an i5 4670K (or newest gen i5) and hopefully upgrade to 16 GB DDR3 with a new Z87 mobo (or what goes with newer i5s.) I have a soft spot for Old games and emulators such as Full Throttle and DOOM and currently enjoy games that I can either create my own stuff (KSP) or Mod it to death (Skyrim or Fallout 3) So far I've killed "Fallout 3" 7 times.

  1. What is the best articulating monitor arm? I will be using them for a triple monitor setup soon. Requirements: Desk mounted Move up and down and at least adjustable side to side Tilting The current one I am looking at is this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BBHJK86/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?pd_rd_i=B07BBHJK86&pd_rd_wg=MFa0C&pd_rd_r=27T3MR5V7SVW5ZHHRSR4&pd_rd_w=6qShC&th=1 It seems like a good choice but its review are limited, I'd like to make sure what I do buy is going to be good in the long-run.

    Googles Sued For Censoring Conservative PragerU

    Never Google should be able to choose what it wants to have, if it stops too much, Youtube will die.
  3. Basically, PragerU, a non-profit conservative organization is suing Google for their content being blocked by Youtube in its "Restricted Mode," Citing that it infringes on their freedom of speech from the 1st US amendment. Their videos are also demonetized though to a extent I do not know. The demonetization could simply be missed revenue by having it not show up for the lost viewership. I think this is relevant because Internet censorship is something we should all be extremely interested in and if its happening, should respond to appropriately.

  4. I imagine you would be able to get a basic computer for about the same price as a Network hub... It sounds to me that the ability for people to (even if crippled) still work while the main computer is offline would be a good thing to have.

    Laptop for college?

    You should consider more than just College in your laptop purchase: Do you game? Is this your only PC? Can I upgrade my laptop without voiding the warranty? Can I upgrade its RAM and internal HDD easily? And lastly, the most important part: Do you even need a laptop for what you are doing? I have friends who do not have a laptop and do fine in community colleges. Laptops are not necessarily a requirement, but it depends on what you do. I am in Computer Engineering and would die without a laptop that is capable of gaming, (GTX 960M) my friend going to a community college is going into the automotive industry and still shares his desktop PC with his parents! Edit: As far as recommendation goes, AVOID any Chromebook. What you will be using must be able to use Microsoft Word, I've personally had instances in which Google Docs failed to catch a dumb mistake (like a sentence fragment) while Word caught that same one. That said, its not perfect either. (one could go for Linux, but Windows is a lot more stress free.)

    GTX 1080 or GTX 1070

    As a side note for North American Users, Look at Newegg! Cheapest prices: GTX 1070: $490 GTX 1080: $510 Pretty crazy, maybe Miners are picking up the 1070s instead of RX Vega now. I bought my 1070 on launch day for $450 seems weird prices are still so high.

    GTX 1080 or GTX 1070

    Me too, how are you getting a 1080 for the price of a 1070? Hands down, Get the 1080.
  8. You can get cooler temps, say CS:GO uses 20% at 1400Mhz, could it use 80% at 800Mhz while also running cooler. That said, its pointless to underclock unless you like causing hardship for yourself Check your temps, best thing you can do here is cut out some holes in both your case, and the desk if possible.

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    I'll probably feel that way with my i7 4790K & 1070 today, but I found the Q6600 (at stock speeds) to be way too slow, and got pretty toasty on my Zalman at 3.2Ghz. a GTX 660 could bottleneck the stock chip.

    Liquid spilled on my keyboard

    Alchohol or (If you have a very long time to dry,) water. I'd recommend Isoprobyl-Alchohol as its good vs. sticky stuff.

    GPU for HTPC (Home Theater PC)

    I don't know much about the euro market, I think that you may want something at least as powerful as the GT 620, if you already have the PC though, try the IGPU. It may already be sufficient.(if there is one)
  12. If you only want to play these two games, you will probably only need a dual-core without hyperthreading. The GPU is absolute overkill, but I didn't want to go to the 750 ti for $10 less.

    How to fix sweaty hands while gaming? I tend to sweat

    Get a new set of genetics. <--Most permanent way Consider getting a towel to wipe your hands on, or cooling your room down.

    $20 gaming Mice suggestions?

    I suppose just any mouse will do. Really! Personally, I use the Logitech M570, but thats a trackball. Does pretty well in gaming. It'd just be your best bet if you want a solid mouse for many years.

    Did I Win the Silicon Lottery? (GTX 1070 FTW)

    My ASUS Strix GTX 1070 reaches 2050 in its OC mode, I don't know if this is comparable or not. Similar temps.
