  1. Final grade on part of my engineering course came through for maths. Distinction.

      NICE!  Congratulations.

  2. Love the ability to take my PC on the go, then come back and plug it up for real work! :D

  3. If I'm honest, I was thinking of just lying to myself and saying no one wanted to buy my PC parts yesterday. Then getting back from college, I noticed that my mobo and CPU had both sold. No going back now!

      I mean, you could back out still. Though you'd disappoint the buyer. But seeing as you were feeling less than certain that your parts would sell, I'd say that's pretty fortunate they actually did.

      Oh, I'm not backing out, the parts are in the mail now, just got a handful more to go and then I'll be sorted. Though, I'm in two minds about selling my monitor as it's really nice to be able to plug in my laptop into a mini display port and then run games at 1440p. Granted, at about 20fps less than my 1070, but I just lower the settings.

    does everyone by vans

    Yeah, they're nice, and mine last up to like two years a pair so far.
  5. Battlefront 1 is finally on Steam, and I couldn't be happier seeing it there. 

  6. SeriouslyMikey

    What song are you listening to right now.

  7. Got my laptop. :D 

    Tomorrow I'll be wiping my desktop's drives and then selling the rest of the components.

  10. I have clearly been living under a rock for the past few months to a year. Since when was DDR3 so god damn expensive? Since when was an i5 4670k worth neck end of £100? And my motherboard? It's selling at £100 too. 🤨

      Haswell is bizarrely expensive, primarily because of two things: nostalgia and "muh modern performance".

      Good enough for me. 

      I was genuinely surprised seeing my ram selling for the same price as I got it six years ago. It's nuts. 

  11. Alright, chaps! Need your advice. I've narrowed my search down to two laptops. Two that I have managed to feel and type on in person, but I just can't make up my mind. I have the money for both: 
    First up is the Asus ROG Strix laptop.

    Cons: 8GB memory, 120GB SSD, 1TB HDD

    Pros: Cheaper, 120hz monitor

    I don't know whether it's a Max-Q or not

     

    And then it's the Razer Blade 15.3"

    Cons: 60hz monitor, more expensive, Max-Q

    Pros: 256GB SSD, 2TB HDD, DAT DESIGN THO, 15.6" (I prefer a smaller for transport)

    https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/razer-blade-15-6-intel-core-i7-gtx-1060-gaming-laptop-2-tb-hdd-256-gb-ssd-10188131-pdt.html

     

    Or, should I just pony up and get a laptop with a 2060 in?

      I've heard pretty bad things about Razer's laptops when it comes to quality.

      Also, I'm pretty sure the GPU in the ROG laptop isn't a Max-Q 1060.

       

      If you got a laptop with a 2060 in it, would you use that 2060 well and would you use it like that a lot?

      That's a very good point, and I think the answer would be no. So, I'll scratch pony upping off all together. 

      There's one positive about there only being 8GB of memory and that's how easy it is to update the Asus. On top of that, the build quality is fantastic, honestly. Pushed down on the keyboard, flexed the screen and it's one sturdy boi. Oh, and upgrading to 16GB is only £89.99 and it's still cheaper. 

      I may just be fanboying over that Razer design lmao

       

      If it was £100 cheaper I could have got it today

    And now my system is a bit janky lmao

  13. Selling my case, 3TB WD Green, and PSU today. Guy's paying £200.
