That's because they mixed metals, afaik. 

 

not needed... 

Yes, and? They're old and not many people want to actually buy those systems...

why would anyone use firefox when they make microsoft edge?

i ran out of 8GB just with a couple chrome tabs... 16GB is the standard nowadays, it's not even that expensive...

who would watch this?

like a single core CPU? those lag in Windows 10.....

just no

unless you want to start a housefire

To add further where the hell do you get off thinking im talking about something like a Pentium 3. Did you know athlon64x2 can run 64bit windows 10? Did you know cinebench benchs your single core speed? Did you know most  programs only need single core.  Did you know amd workstation video cards run csgo alright? I cannot believe you actually thought i was talking about a single core cpu.. did you know 64bit came out back in 1975? Jeeez kid

you are just providing false info here

 

most programs can at least use quad cores, most even more, windows can run on one core, programs on another

 

and you know, I as a psu guy think you can easily start a housefire with a cheap psu

Time to uprgarde that old electrical.  That's what linus needs to do next.  Explain how house power works.  How to properly put a load on your house.

Would be neat to see you do a general review/roundup on VR head seats and compare them to early set from the 90s to show are far VR has come.


I have Dyslexia, my posts will have spelling and grammar errors. I try me best, but I will still make mistakes.

A couple of Chrome tabs? I've ran 30+ Chrome tabs, multiple large MS Word documents, and many other programs all at once with 8GB of RAM.

 

And whether or not it's expensive, that's up to debate. Not everyone can afford 16GB of RAM, and I hope you realize that.

Considering that ~30% of people are still using dual core CPUs, I'd say there are people in the market for older systems. (Source)

And how often do housefires occur with cheap PSUs?

Could you review the steelseries arctis headphones (The Arctis 3 Bluetooth in particular)  News outlets rave about them, but user reviews are a very mixed bag, so I want to hear what yall have to say.
