  1. When everyone is slipping and dislocating their hips on campus while penguining around in snow boots... then there's you just trundling along as usual with sneakers.

      People that don't alter how they walk in cold conditions are idiots.

      lol - the only hip person is the one that still has theirs in-place :P 

  2. I doubt they would offer you a replacement board with SLI compatibility. They're definitely not going to upgrade you to a ROG board.
  3. Both will work. With Option 2, you're most likely going to be missing out on Dual-channel operation depending on what Dell originally shipped your system with. Some people on the forum are adamant that people should go for dual channel operation. But from my personal experience, the difference is barely noticeable in day to day use. So it's really up to you depending on whether you want to spend the extra money on the dual channel kit and sell your current 8GB stick.
  4. Do you have a PC speaker plugged in? I'm referring to those speakers inside the case that has a 4-pin connector that plugs into the same area as your power and reset buttons. If so, do you hear any beeps? Also try unplugging your GPU and use only the onboard video. The issue could also be your PSU. Since you're computer has been left (I presume) unplugged for so long, I wouldn't rule anything out.
  5. Clear the CMOS, reseat the RAM and CPU and see how it goes. Since it's been sitting untouched for the better part of 3 years, it's possible contacts may have corroded. So you have my to clean the RAM contacts and the slots with some Deoxit.
  6. Also found a RX 590 for $239. I do plan on using this card for the next 5+ years if that makes a difference. What do you think?
  7. So I found GTX 1650 Supers in my area for around $209 - 229. But stock is a rarity so I have to keep that in mind. And the RX 570 can be had for around $170 as @Fasauceome kindly pointed out. Would you say that spending the extra 30-50 bucks for the 1650 Super is worth it? I don't game too often and my game library is small. The most demanding game being Destiny 2.
  8. So the 1650 4GB is also on sale for around the same price in my area. That would be a better bet? Wow... must be the crap Canadian dollar. This was on sale too, $80 off.
  9. Looking to upgrade my GPU so that Destiny 2 doesn’t run like complete arse at low 720p. I know the RX 570 came out 2 years ago but is it still worth looking into if I want an inexpensive upgrade to get the game running at recent frame rates? So preferably med-high 1080p with 40-50 FPS minimums? I found a 8GB variant for around 200 bucks CAD and will be keeping my current 1100T. Is this a good investment or are there better alternatives out there? I will be keeping my 1100T cause I can’t find any other compelling reason to upgrade my platform.
  10. Mhmm I was expecting a bit more than that. 


    1. D.U.F.F.


      Did you get those 138 notifications while you went to the toilet ???

    2. BlueChinchillaEatingDorito


      Nah I took a break for about 2 months.

      I think we all know the answer to that then 👀  It was set to manually manage when I set it up last week. My old iPhone 4 was synced to an iTunes profile so maybe that’s it?

    3. TopHatProductions115


      Oh - so the seller didn't wipe it before giving it to you? Just checking...

    4. BlueChinchillaEatingDorito


      @TopHatProductions115 The device was wiped by the OEM who did the reconditioning and sold to me from my carrier (Fido). It didn’t ask me for the previous Apple ID used. Setup was just like for a brand new device. 

  12. Yes, it was working fine before. If it wasn't, I would've warrantied it.
  13. When I change the volume in the either direction using the volume control wheel on my Logitech G61 Orion, it doesn't change the volume smoothly. Rather, it tracks up and down slightly, gradually getting to where I need it to be. Sometimes it would track significantly to the opposite direction. I originally thought this was an issue with the KVM switching I have my mouse and keyboard hooked up to but the same symptoms are present when hooked up directly to another computer. So I'm confident that it is an issue with the keyboard itself. Any ideas as to what to do at this stage? Just today, as I type, it'll randomly change the volume slightly without command.
