  1. I found it on ali express but after shipping its almost as expensive as the monitor as a whole. Other than reddit marketplaces where would be good places to look? the model number of the panel is M270DTN01.5

    CRT Gaming?

    do you just convert to an older input type or do you have a card with a vga out?

    CRT Gaming?

    i mean as long as you find one that isnt completely trashed you can repair them with a little know how. God knows theres enough parts out there, might have to Frankenstein them but it works

    CRT Gaming?

    a lot of people still use them, mostly for retro games like smash melee and speed running older titles, due to display lag when converting. So there's a market for them.

    CRT Gaming?

    So i hate to be the guy that recommends a video idea, and im sure im not the first to talk about this; but i just learned of this subreddit today. https://www.reddit.com/r/GloriousCRTMasterRace/wiki/guide Basically what it claims is that crts provide many benefits over new modern day monitors. Basically it would be very interesting to be able to see someone with the actual time, money, and know how to break down these claims. Other people have done it but not with the resources that Linus and group have available to them. Has anyone here played with a modern system on a CRT setup and how did it work for you?
  6. Hello sorry for the super simple noob question but i have an old system that im buffing up a little for a friend, currently it has 8gb of ddr3 patriot viper xtreme ram at 1366mhz, i could use another brand of ram as long as the capacity and the speed match correct?
  7. Just talked my job into getting me a ifix it pro kit for work use, thanks Linus!
  8. ask around, private sales between you and a player are where you can also find some good stuff. Though buying from players is against most stores policies so be lowkey about them. Friday and Saturday evenings will be your best nights to catch people
  9. 5$-20$, ill edit it but yeah man, i sell mats at 20$ but a lot of smaller card games pump out promo mats in large numbers and they pile us so i just sell them at 5$ each since i get them for free 90% of the time
  10. little hack for you, go down to your local yugioh/magic shop, people will sell you large mats for 5$-20$ there, they are made out the same material as regular mouse pads and are roughly 1 foot by 2 foot in size. You could specifically ask for one from a game called force of will, and if they ever carried the products they will have dozens and they are braided so they will never fray
  11. yes it does, supports an adhock local connection
  12. So i recently overclocked my whole system, memory @ 3200, 8700k @ 5GHz, and my gpu but i seem to not be getting results comparable to other people with similar setups. For reference ive been using 3Dmark. Im fairly new to overclocking so i followed some guides, so if anyone could give me some ideas on what im doing wrong i would appreciate that. I have linked my 3Dmark results https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6475162 Edit: my card is the MSI armor edition, i know its not the best
  13. monster hunter freedom unite is a psp game ported to vita via the network, one of my favorite games of all time. Other than that the jak and daxter collection is a solid pick up
  14. but you can also get a 2080 for 680rn so idk how much cheaper the non rtx versions would be
