  1. Chat is Google's next attempt at messaging on Android

    Will probably continue sticking with Hangouts and WhatsApp supplementing SMS. No thanks Google, I don't need another app.
  2. Yeah what I'd like to see is hitting the point where it does cause a noticeable difference.
  3. It'd make an interesting experiment. Take an older ATX computer with say, 8 pcie lanes, and load up all the slots with cards, such as network cards, wifi cards, usb cards, sound cards, etc, and see how in compares to the same computer with only a GPU. I'd love to see the results.
  4. Free Games to Play???

    Armagetron Dwarf Fortress Team Fortress 2 League of Legends Quake III Arena Demo AM2R
  5. Would only work for old Intel/MOS/Motorola/Zilog chips
  6. Again, it would theoretically work. Dunno how well it'd work though on 1100+ pin CPUs. Maximum that makes sense is 50-75.
  7. I mean, theoretically you could look up a pinout chart for the processor, but its a long and arduous process. Only recommend it really for pre-1987 CPUs
  8. put it in another mobo
  9. If you had a $1,000 budget for a GPU what would you get?

    wait for next gen nvidia
  10. Slow Computer

    do you have a graphics card?
  11. Free old technology

    I've saved a few computers from the scrap heap myself, including a Tandy 486, a few PowerMac G4s, an Apple IIc, a Radio Shack TRS-80, a Pentium II Dell, and a lot of core2duos. I still have the Tandy, the G4s, the Dell, and the core2duos. The Tandy and G4s are my summer projects, the Dell I hope to get up and running again soon, just need a fresh install of 98SE and drivers. The core2duos are being used as workstations at my workshop, mainly because they work well for web browsing and google sheets. Honestly it's fun to tinker with old computers, provided you have the time and space for them.
  12. Xbox One (Bluetooth) controller compatibility

    I managed to get it working. Apparently I was trying to pair it in Xbox Wireless Mode as opposed to Bluetooth. Works fine with every game I use it with.
  13. although I'd recommend, if possible, stretching your budget and buying a 2tb HDD from Seagate. Those can be had for $60.
