  1. TIL, still that wont stop me from doing bodge
  2. the one thing that put me off doing a linux based NAS thing was cause all systems on my network are windows systems and im not sure how good the cross talk it between linux and windows, plus im a bodger so
  3. Heres a fun idea, a bodge home made NAS. Using older hardware (like talking things you can only find on facebook marketplace/ebay or have laying around from years of upgrading (except for drives maybe)) and showing different ways you can turn that into a network storage system (use different tools including Windows itself)
  4. cant you even do a bodge nas style thing with windows and have it set up a lot quicker?
  5. the fact you went from 1 gen to the next gen the moment it dropped shows off a case of i need the newest thing, which that attitude comes hand in hand with the cry baby bitches who flip when they lose up to 10 fps when there in the 200, if it was almost half there frames going then they can complain but seriously, 10 frames?
  6. what really gets my goat up is when you see the enthusiasts with the highest end specs complain about getting fps drops of up to 10 which at the frame rates there at it seems as though the only way you could tell is if you had an FPS counter up
  7. no offence but i find people like you so annoying when it comes to computer parts, needing the newest things, thats actually one reason why im doing what i am doing with an old dell vostro tower. (check my profile plus ill put a builds.gg link there too later)
  8. Over the past few months I have been working on getting some old computer parts together (around $120 worth of old computer parts together) for the purpose of proving a point, and within the next month the journey is going to be coming to an end, if you wanna see what im on about then feel free to head over to my tech youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoYB_tOUBnVf4eobhPuI_BQ

  9. in my defence i was already typing before i saw your comment
  10. bodge is the best way to deal with any computer stuff
  11. Lets start with CPU: Anything quad core or higher is good for gaming, personally for you I would suggest a 2400g or a 3400g from AMD (this also takes care of graphics but ill still address that later For the motherboard this is technically the hardest component to choose cause you have Intel and AMD then you have to worry about if the CPU you bought will work out the box, and thats before thinking about the technologies it has on it (pcie gen 4, m.2, overclockability) I would say (including the suggestion I gave about the CPU) go for a B450 board this is what I recently got as an upgrade, its a good board has an m.2 slot 4 ram slots and is ready for ryzen 3rd gen, as a note when ryzen 4th gen comes out (if its on AM4) you will need to do a "bios update" if you want to stick with the board which the way AMD are going they look to be supporting the socket until DDR5 comes out. Next up is RAM I honestly wouldn't suggest less than 8gb of ram, on ryzen you want good speed (3000mhz is a bit on the low side but -should- be good) if you go with an APU (which is the style of cpu i suggested at the first point) I would suggest going with 16gb as the OS and GPU will be sharing the ram (and personally i dont like mix and matching capacities) Speaking of GPU if you didnt go with an APU then this does matter (especially if you go AMD as they don't do graphics on the chip) any GPU works with any CPU its finding the best match up for your CPU, a lot of people will probibally say rtx2060 super or that new AMD card, personally I would say 1660super (or whatever its called) or a rx580/590 the case is MOSTLY cosmetic however a case with good airflow is ideal, there are some cheap ass cases that are good for this but others that are not so be careful. Power supply is the "spine" of the system so to speak, a lot of people will say go double the capacity of your system (this also adds upgradeability) but honestly if your system looks to need 300w you can go 450w, any form of modular is nice but not needed (seriously it does make it all look good in the end and makes cable management easier but if you lose a cable you might have to go to cable mod or the manufacturer to get a replacement) Storage again this is partially personal preference here, 250gb 2.5 SATA ssd for boot (technically you can go as low as windows needs but you would need to install everything on a seperate drive) and at least 1tb hdd, if you can afford it go 2tb cause you can fit games and other files on there to make things a lot easier, although i had 300 games installed at once on 2tb and just about filled it up (1.8tb) one big thing that i will suggest is use pc part picker to help you out, this is one thing that i will say the verge did suggest right cause they can tell you compatability problems, they can also point out if you might need a bios update and can help you save money if you are willing to go to several venders instead of just one. the last thing im gonna say is cooling, if you go intel YOU WILL NEED A CPU COOLER as the stock one intel ships is hot garbage (litterally) if you dont plan on overclocking on AMD then you can use stock, (you can get a slight overclock on AMD but for a newbie i wouldnt recommend it)
  12. couldnt you have gone to the manufacturers website or used cable mod? or was that not an option at the time
  13. i looked at the MSI version of the card on ebay and found $100 being the cheapest
