  1. Tech Decorating ideas

    I think the motherboard wall Linus has in his office is pretty cool. Theoretically you could probably score some mobos for free from your local ewaste place (since they have to pay to get rid of them usually) Maybe some paint and screws/ etc and your set
  2. 2 Different GPU's for 2 monitors?

    It seems like graphics cards have changed a lot since I payed much attention to them. thanks guys!
  3. I'm going to be moving soon and will finally be able to upgrade to a dual monitor setup. I have a GTX 1060 3GB right now, but I still have my perfectly functional 650TI 3GB sitting in a box. Can I use the 1060 for the primary monitor, and the 650 for my second monitor? For productivity I will use both monitors, but when gaming I'll only use one, and probably have Spotify or something like that up on the second. Will this work? I will have 2 identical 25" 1440P monitors from Asus that have both HDMI and displayport. I remember a few years ago seeing a graphic from Nvidea showing you which ports to use on which cards for 2, 3 and 4 monitor setups... Is this still true? If so, where will I find what ports to use?
  4. This may be a long shot... but I'm looking for some high-res pics for my bedroom. I'm doing some re-organizing and re-decorating and I'm looking to change things up a bit Anyone here have pics of Ford trucks or maybe drift cars/ other race cars that could be printed on a large size and framed? If not, where could I find some? Anyone have recommendations for resolutions for a 20x24 or 24x36 print?
  5. The problem with both of these is that I think the final unit will be very large, because I will have to conceal the 2 keyboards inside of it. I would rather have a smaller, cleaner unit that others could more easily replicate
  6. I've been watching LTT for a long time, and have always been particularly interested in Taran's macro's and use of AutoHotKey. I also saw this post on reddit (as I'm sure many of you did) and was inspired to make my own. I play a lot of simulation games, and one of my favorites has always been farming simulator. In the past, I have struggled to remember all my keyboard shortcuts, and often ran out of space, requiring my commands to be longer. I want to make my own control panel using some switches from Amazon. I picked out some normal and momentary toggle switches, and a keyed ignition switch too. I also found a pull switch for the air brakes. The part I'm really struggling with is how I'm going to get all this to work. I do control wiring for a living, but have never done anything that has a physical switch that interacts with software. In the reddit post, the guy uses an arduino, but doesn't really go into details about how exactly he connected it all and what software he used/ programmed. Have any of you ever done this? I'm going to have about 35 switches, and would like to use autohotkey to program them all. The reason I want to do this is because I want to be able to modify it easily and the future, and upload the final code to github for anyone else to use. I really would appreciate any and all help you could offer Thanks
  7. Can anyone identify these Bose IEM's?

    Perfect. Thanks!
  8. I was given these Bose headphones by a family member who hated them. I'd like to try them out, but I want to get new ear-tips.... and I have no clue what the model name or number is They are likely a few years old
  9. Does anyone know where I could find this bed, or something similar? I'm going to be moving soon and it would work really well with what I've got planned The bed is the one that Alex AKA Marzbar has. He's in the UK, but I'd like to find it in the US if possible
  10. Best Monitors for my first dual screen setup?

    Edited my OP I can't spend $1200 on 2 monitors
  11. I'm going to be moving soon, and I will finally have room for my first dual screen setup. Right now I have a GTX 1060 3GB from EVGA. I don't play many intense games, so I certainly don't need a 4K screen with a 1 or 2ms response time. I have a 1440P screen now and I like it, but it has no VESA mount. I'm going to use the monitor I currently have for my office computer, and I'd like 2 get 2 identical monitors with either a 75mm or 100mm bolt pattern. I'm not sure how much my GPU can handle as far as the resolution goes. I'm never going to game on both monitors at once, in fact, I'd like to be able to use one of them on my Macbook on occasion. Which monitors should I get? I really don't need anything over 60hz and I don't want to pay much more than $400 for the pair
  12. Finally! After exporting from my outlook, importing to gmail, and restarting, everything works!
  13. I just bought the iPhone 8 and MacBook Pro, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to sync my contacts between the two. I use gmail for my Apple ID and the contacts sync just fine to my iPad, but the messages app and contacts on the laptop never properly sync for with my phone.... Thanks in advance!
  14. Where to buy this car charger?

    I need to find a car charger with these exact specifications, and I have no idea where to look. I saw some on ebay that might work but I want a high quality one. The last time I bought a car charger on ebay it started smoking when I was on the highway Specs: 9vdc charger with 400mA 4.75mm outer/ 1/7mm inner plug (with the inner tip set to positive) I'd prefer one with right angle connector and a coiled cable. It only needs to be like 1.5 or 2 feet Thanks!
  15. I have decided to ditch Comcast and instead switch to DirectTv Now and Netflix, along with Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. I want to build an htpc that can stream 4K content, while remaining quiet and reliable. I have been debating whether I need a graphics card or not. I do have an extra GTX 650 laying around which I would guess should be fine, but a second opinion would be appreciated. I dont plan on saving much content on the pc itself, so I was thinking a 256gb boot SSD and a 2tb HDD. Part of my plan is to have everything stored on a Western Digital mycloud NAS. I have one already and I love it. This way I can watch my content easily on my devices (and without having to re-teach the family anything). I would apreciate any any and all advice. I also live in the US, and plan on using Windows 10. I won't be playing any games on the PC, and I probably will add a blue ray drive for kicks.
