    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Nice grab. It would make for a good retro gaming build. Lots of older games run great on 486 hardware.

    Steam vs. Epic

    I never read about the spyware. I just remember reading about Borderlands 3 being an Epic Store exclusive because of the better revenue split than Steam, causing upset gamers.

    Epic Store has a better revenue split than Steam stealing developers from them: https://www.engadget.com/2019/04/25/steam-epic-games-store-revenue-share-sweeney-challenge/

    Bought a white label drive. Is it a mistake?

    That seller has 100% positive feedback. If you already bought it and you can't refund it, you might as well try to use it. If it gives you problems you can always return it to the seller.

    I didn't know that. It makes sense that they would put a white label on it after repairing it.

    Bought a white label drive. Is it a mistake?

    This drive is probably cheap because it is SATA3 and has a 32 MB buffer. Quoted from that eBay listing: I never owned a white label drive personally, but brand name hard drives fail just as much. I bought a 4 TB Seagate drive off eBay and it had bad sectors at the get-go. The seller had shipped it in a small box in bubble wrap.

    My Voodoo3 3000 AGP sells for more money than my used GTX 970 does on eBay. It's scary.

    can I split my pc?

    Yes, split screen in Rocket League.
  11. 24 Seagate 14 TB Ironwolf Pro NAS hard drives. I would take just one of those.

    Still better than a PSU without an efficiency rating.

    No Dollar Wasted PC Build Guide

    I've tried Leawo's Blu Ray player with varying success. It's Chinese, so it might contain spyware. It's not officially licensed to use Blu Ray technology (https://www.one-blue.com/licensors/). I tried to watch Terminator 2 on Blu Ray using Leawo's player and it played, but there were a lot of glitches throughout the movie. I ended up buying PowerDVD 18 on sale. BTW, this is really getting off-topic to this thread.

    No Dollar Wasted PC Build Guide

    Except 99% of the time you need commercial software to play Blu Ray (PowerDVD) movies on PC.

    Installing new windows 10 to an old pc

    I think what people are saying is you can download a Windows 10 ISO FOR FREE from Microsoft and put it on a USB drive to install. All the information is here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
  17. Just browsing some of this eBay seller's other items he has an EVGA GTX 1070 Ti Box Only and it has 13 bids at $100. https://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-Geforce-GTX-1070-Ti-FTW-2-8GB-Graphics-Card-Box-Only/183800316991

    Do not buy Gigabyte Video Card

    I used my Gigabyte GTX 970 as a backup.

    Do not buy Gigabyte Video Card

    I had to RMA my Gigabyte GTX 1070. I turned on my PC about a year after I bought the GTX 1070, black screen and fans were at 100%. I removed the card and tried it in my second PC. Same thing. I started the RMA process, sent them the defective card, and about a month later they sent a replacement card. All I had to pay was shipping. Probably not the best RMA process, but I am still using the replacement GTX 1070.
  22. Yeah, but Steam Play and Proton has made it a lot easier to install and run Windows games on Linux. You should give it a try.
