  1. "Obsolete" is a big word, and one that definitely doesn't apply to today's PC hardware. Right now, I'm typing this from a FX-8150 system with 8GB RAM, GTX 580, and 120GB SSD. It works great for Google Suite work, it easily runs games like CS:GO, Heroes of the Storm, and Destiny 2 in 60+ fps at low to medium settings, and it overall feels perfectly fine to work with. I know from experience that if I added a more capable GPU in here, it would be able to smoothly run modern AAA titles at okay settings as well. Until the day comes when a Windows installation takes more than 120gb, I can't see 120gb SSDs becoming obsolete either. As for my main machine, I have a Ryzen 1600x, 16 GB RAM at 2933MHz, and GTX 1070. Runs almost every game in high-to-ultra settings on 1080p. The AM4 slot ensures that I'll be able to upgrade the CPU in a few years, and ofc upgrading the GPU is always an option. I'd say that's pretty future proof, tbh.
  2. Just buy Win10 Pro key on ebay for like $3. I got 3 of those keys and they work perfectly.
  3. No one really knows because most of the benchmark videos were made when the game came out almost a month ago. In the meantime, Rockstar has apparently released a bunch of optimization patches and some people are claiming that it has fixed the performance issues. IMHO your best bet is to buy the game tomorrow when it comes out on Steam, play it for less than 2 hours, and simply refund if the performance is bad.
  4. It's possible. Here's how to do it: Step 1: Find a friend, colleague, family member, etc. who has a gaming PC at home that's better than a console. Bonus points if you hate their guts. Step 2: Befriend a burglar. Step 3: Offer your burglar buddy $100 to break into your friend/colleague's house and steal their PC for you. (PROTIP: you can sweeten the deal by telling them they can keep whatever else they find there, you only want the PC) Step 4: ?????? Step 5: PROFIT
  5. World of WarCraft by far. Other games I spent huge amounts of time in include: Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft 1 & 2, WarCraft 3, Diablo 2, Counter Strike franchise, Dark Souls 3, Baldur's Gate franchise, Doom 1, 2, and 2016, and so on.
  6. Someday it will, but it's going to take a lot longer because the benefits simply aren't as noticeable to the vast majority of people.
  7. You just know this smartphone idea came along during a 3-day drug-fueled binge.
  8. Don't buy this overpriced crap. You can get yourself a quality watch from Police, Fossil, etc. for 200e that's going to last you a lifetime and won't make you look like a nerd.
  9. You can download it for free, play the full singleplayer campaign, level up to max, PvP, and have access to full basic game content + a few DLCs. So yeah, I'd say it's worth it, considering it's an AAA game that costs nothing for all those things (you only have to pay for the newest DLC and Forsaken if you want to have ALL of the content). I spent quite a few hours in it while it was on Blizzard launcher, and I still play PvP occasionally. It's decent for what it is.
  10. Unless there's a specific reason to leave your PC on, I don't see why you'd do it? Leaving your PC on does the following: - wears down mechanical parts (fans and hdd) - draws power (not a lot, but it does) - may damage power supply in case of power surge etc. - makes it possible for hackers or trojans or w/e to tamper with your machine (they can't hack a computer that's powered off).
  11. Regardless of price? I'd upgrade my GTX 1070 to a 2080ti or something.
  12. Xbox One controller every day all the way.
  13. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to play most of those games on low-to-medium settings at the very least.
  14. I don't know the answer to your question, but you may be able to find someone who does on the official forums: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/homestream/discussions/
  15. I used to shave with a shaving cream for years. Then this one time I forgot to buy cream, but needed to shave. So I thought "screw it" and did it with just soap. Zero difference. The only thing that ever made a difference when shaving for me was how sharp the actual razor was.
