  5. What? You won't be able to sell a dead card or mobo for anything. Try to RMA the 1080.

    RTX 2080 Ti Failing Too Early

    ...For now. My 780 matched the 970 for a long time, until the 970 started getting real optimization. Same shit with the 980 to 1070.

    Where to buy car?

    Then pick a different vehicle. If they aren't there then they aren't there.

    Here’s why iPhones are better

    My HTC One M7 after 1 year My Pixel after 1 year My work iPhone 6 performs better than both, and I do literally nothing custom on either of them.

    Use money to buy a PC or save it

    Worse than a car... But it expecting it to be a sunk cost. It's not, but treat it as such.

    Why did you buy an iPhone?

    My phone history is as follows: iPhone 4, Galaxy S3, HTC One M7, Nexus 5x, Pixel, iPhone X. Google has atrocious QA for RMA equipment. I had four Pixels in total. The first one was great for half a year, but slowed down drastically after 2 patches. It then stopped staying on for longer than 20 minutes at any point. The RMA device had the same issue. The second RMA device stopped turning on at all after about a month. The third RMA device / fourth Pixel was fine, just slow as fuck after 2 or 3 patches. Apple throttles their phones with updates, but not nearly as much as Google in my experience. My Pixel ended up feeling roughly as snappy as my Mom's iPhone 4. I was also tired of the "premium" phones (Pixel, HTC One M7) feeling roughly as cheap at the Nexus 5x. The Nexus 5x was up there with the Pixel and M7, but was half the price. None of them every felt premium, they each had a cheap feel (with the exception of the M7 which I loved until updates made it slower than my second-gen iPod touch). So I decided to try the iPhone X for this generation... I fucking love it. It actually feels premium, the camera is fantastic (and the camera app is actually decent), and it's well-supported. Apple slows shit down during patches, but never as badly as Google does. Oh. And because of the cancerous growth called Hangouts. Hangouts would be unable to pull from my contact list for a few days every couple months, so every chat was just by phone number. I have the 256gb iPhone X and got it for $600 after the Verizon deals and a discount through my company. My girlfriend also has one. After 3 months it feels drastically snappier than any of my Android phones did after 3 months, it has no noticeable slowdown. My Pixel felt bogged down after 1 month. The only thing I miss is a good keyboard. I loved Android Swiftkey, sadly iOS Swiftkey isn't event comparable. No long-press on letters for special characters, no number bar, etc. It's basically the stock keyboard with word suggestions. Also I know that the phone I have will still be well supported in 5 years. Something you can't get with literally any android phone.

    ways to make money at less than 16?

    They sure can since basically nothing you have is actually yours.

    ways to make money at less than 16?

    Helping your neighbors is definitely the best option. Do the classic law mowing service, lawn cleaning (pick up sticks, rake leaves, etc), driveway shoveling, etc. If your photography doesn't suck and people are willing to buy it, go for it. Was the stuff that you'd sell purchased by your parents? If so, that's kind of a dick move.
