    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    just saw these on facebook marketplace. 40 bucks for all 4. no other info but cool enough to slap on this thread. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2421261154817911/
  2. i thought other people might get a kick out of this video too. very well put together video. 8:27 long not ALL of them, but a cool list of the main ones
  3. so i reformatted my PC after dealing several issues that just couldnt be worked around or fixed.. After setting everything back up i realize that the light on my webcam was always on. eventually i realized it was because my pc was defaulting to the wecams mic as my main mic, and it was always on because of the "hey cortana" feature being enabled. usually its on my main mic where i can turn on or off my mic amp and therefore turn off my pc and all programs from being able to hear me if i so desired.. so i fixed that. and i go to setup my mic to be used with streamlabs obs, and i notice that its not working. so i try it with the stock camera app in windows and its not working. so i unintsll it and reinstall it, delete drivers, reinstall drivers, try different usb ports, front and back, i do everything i can to trouble shoot the issue and the ned result is that this cam, after the reinstall does not work.. i have no idea why. Everything ays the camera is working fine. it is showing up in the devices list both in the imaging devices and in the sound devices. it is in all the normal lists of attached hardware and everything says its working fine. but its not. there is no picture when i try to use any app that uses that webcam. anyone have any ideas? ive posted about this before with no luck. im hoping someone new sees this and knows what the deal is..

    just buy one of the universal blocks that come with the mounting hardware for both amd and intel. thats an option anyway. so you dont buy a waterblock just to throw it in a box of computer parts when you upgrade. ive neen debating cheating on my wife (intel) with that sexy new girl in town (3900x) only because shes so much easier to get my hands on seeing how shes so much cheaper and has the same or better performance as the top tier 9900k's.. but i always feel not as excited about amd hardware. idk why.. ive just always had intel as my main rigs for the most part.. i did buy an amd phenom x4 black edition in my main gaming rig in 2009ish.. and i do own a phenom x6 right now that i have in my living room media pc/son 's gaming pc i buult him.. but my main rigs and all my main rigs ive ever had that ive been super happy with have all been intel. But when intel wants to jack all their prices up crazy high you kinda have to go with what you can afford. and im gonna have to upgrade asap.. my pc has been screwing up lately. i have no idea whats happeninig or why its doing it, but sometimes when i start my pc (sometimes 20 times in a row and i have to keep hitting the reset button) it will get hung up on code 9C and/or code 64 (asus Z97 deluxe). and it will cause my entire pc to just sit there hung up and not finish booting.. then today i take my pc out of sleep mode and it freezes up and wont let me move the mouse or type or even hit ctrl/alt/del.. so i had to reset.. then after finally egtting it started up again my screen went crazy and had little green squares all over it, then my pc crashed immediately after and wouldnt start back up for another like 25 reset button pushes and hangs.. and now its back up and running and everything is running 100% perfect.. ive tried going back to stock speeds, disabling turbo, overclocking again, pushing overclock harder, raising voltages, diabling and enabling xmp, undervolting cpu and ram, running the asus uefi self overclock utility, ive tried taking all but 1 stick of ram ouyyt, and alternating sticks, ive tried unplugging everything usb, ive tried unplugging everything pcie, ive tried reseating the cpu, etc.. i tried everything i could think of to try.. and i still have no idea what the problem is. but sometimes itll work, sometimes it wont.. itll always start working after several resets of it not working, and usually only takes a few minutes to get it going when it does screw up, but im at a loss for what to do. and for once this forum was no help in figuring it out.. so ive settled on the fact that my baby is dying and im gonna have to start saving to buy the pieces for a new build one paycheck ata time.. which is gonna take literally years, but i need to start. i cant be without a (good) pc. i have computers laying ariound all over my house so ill still have a computer regardless, but for work i need a good pc. i only just got done building this pc maybe a little over a year ago and im already having to upgrade. its sad because i LOVE this pc. asus z97 deluxe i7 4790k 4.8ghz asetek 120mm aio 32gb (4x8) dual channel 2000mhz ddr3 ripjaws rx580 8gb 80+ silver 750 watt evga supernova psu 128gb samsung nvme SSD (c drive) 500gb HDD (d drive) 500gb HDD (e drive) 1tb HDD (f drive) 1TB HDD (g drive) 480gb ssd (h drive) 27" 1080p 60htz samsung panel (that runs at 1440p and 4k) 24" 1080p 60htz HP panel) thats my baby

    lol. you cant count in electrical price when comparing cpu's dude. thats not fair. I for example get included rg&e in my apartment. other people may pay 1$ a month, others may pay 800$ a month. were talking about price to performance, not price to performance only relative to overall power used. If you take the power consumption out of the equation is sounds like you proved my point!! i feel like youre adding things in to make your side of the debate sound better. and since this is obviously nothing more than an opinion post anyway, thats fine for your side, but on my side im gonna leave out the cost of electricity. in which case my side comes out on top.. so were both correct depending on if you concider power consumption. lol. dint get me wrong, i would much MUCH rather have anything newer, more powerful, and less power hungry, anyday of the week. who wouldnt. but thats only if money wasnt an issue.. if i absolutely HAD to build a PC today and only had 2-3 hundred bucks to build a complete syetm, i would absolutely go dual xeon. but if i could wait (like i did to build my 4790k system) and i could save up money then id go i7 or i9. all day. clear winner in my book when power is the only factor that matters ultimately.

    yeah but can you get a pair of matched any of those cpu's for 3$? and run current games with them? maybe in some freak occorence on ebay or something but in general, i think not. price to performance ratio was what i was talking about. and for some reason the old xeons are dirt cheap but still with decent power on most of them. of coarse youre gonna have cpu's that beat them. in tdp, in power, in iterations per second, in benchmark scores, etc.. but not in price to performance. and none of those other cpus you can throw in a dual socket mobo and double your power for pennies. dont get me wrong, ill take an i7 almost anything over any old xeon if theyre both the same price. but ive never bought an old i7 for under 5 bucks.

    I bought two of these for 3$. Lol. Then upgraded to dual x5450's I believe. For like 26$.. You can't beat old xeons. Some of the cheapest CPUs on the market that still have great performance.. quad core 2ghz isn't much, but 8cores @4ghz is (dual quad core x5450's).... my i7 4790k is 8threads at 4.8ghz and it's a 3-4 hundred dollar processor still.. Price to performance ratio, you can't find better than old xeons. I love em!!!

    Pixel Format Question

    oh ok.. so it having "black crush" means its not a compatible format or something? someone said the rgb mode was the correct mode for a monitor and the pcbcr was for tv's.. but im getting black crush on the rgb mode

    Pixel Format Question

    Pixel Format Question

    whats the difference between "YCbCr 4:4:4" "YCbCr 4:2:2" "RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format Studio (limited RGB)" "RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format PC Standard (Full RGB)" these are my options in my advanced radeon settings. i have no idea what any of these are. I tried the one is was on by default (top one) and i tried the bottom one.. the only difference i noticed was there was way blacker blacks on the bottom one, but it was too black on many things. like it blocked the transparent grey screens where you could see things behind them in the first one and made the whole box (and my taskbar) pitch black.. and i dont wanna click on every single one of them to see what happens. anyone have a laymans terms they could shoot me?
