  3. ^^^^ According to Asus, you'll need at least 11.8" cos that's how long the GPU is.
  4. Specs Boss 1.0 RC Builds...

    So a few things have changed since last time. I've changed SpecsBoss's next release from 2017 RC to 1.0 RC. I've made 5 builds with each one attempting to add more functionality and fix some bugs. So far I've gotten up to Build 6. I'd like some feedback and opinions on Build 6 which is quite instrumental since it's the first build to feature an automatic check for update system on startup. https://github.com/AluminiumTech/SpecsBoss/releases/tag/1.0.6.0 Thanks much . Here's a list of all the changes in this release: If you have any issues or bugs or any feature suggestions then pleas leave them on the GitHub issues page for this -> https://github.com/AluminiumTech/SpecsBoss/issues
  5. An i5-6500 would be preferable. Also, if you can squeeze another 8GB RAM into your budget then that would make things even better.
  6. I'm gonna be quite honest here. I've heard that the 960 AT BEST can be as good as a GTX 680/770. Which in turn is about as good as a 1050..... At worst, you can probably expect around something slightly lower. The GTX 960 is not a good buy for someone with a 760 let alone a 660. Research is critical. See above ^^^^
  7. *Micro. Also, your title has the same typo.
  8. ^^^^ Yes it does require one. Windows 10 account? I presume you mean local account. the Microsoft account can be linked to the Windows key on your PC. There should be nothing to mess up. Thanks for looping me in .
  9. Thank you .
  10. Whew. That was rough. Didn't think i'd make it in time for the 2:10 ferry -_-.

     

    And now my legs hurt.

      @Implosivetech I've lost so much fat within the last year but I've practically lost 0 weight.

  11. nice to see the government is buying advertising space to remind people that drugs are bad.

     

    the drug problem here has gone on for too long.

      Really? Never would've thought.... they seem almost medicinal, don't they?

      Ads won't work.  They could just give anyone caught with them the death penalty.  That would help.  Probably would deter a decent number, and would simply eliminate the rest, but it's a bit harsh imo.

      You haven't seen some of the ridiculousness of the ads from the 80s though.

  12. Not the worse privacy policy I've ever written.

     

    If you do use LFT or have used it then I strongly urge you to read it.

     

  13. We have a new privacy policy along with a new ish website. The rest of the website is being fixed but i'll let you guys have a read of the privacy policy. https://linusforumtips.github.io/privacy.html
  14. But did you hear about Nintendo locking the Hard difficulty behind the DLC paywall? That's a turnoff for a lot of Nintendo fans.
  15. Folding @ Home on PC at home when I'm at school is not great for the environment.

     

    damn you Li Ka Shing :(. Stop using coal to generate powah!

      I live in a town that the whole economy is based on coal power stations (85% of Victoria's power is from here). 

      Hazelwood, Loy Yang, Loy Yang B and Yallourn W are all brown coal power plants and are all still active.

      Why does it matter if you are at school?

      Yes, how could climate change have the audacity to not wait until you were finished with school before destroying the planet? How rude!
