  1. The price difference between 240/256GB and 480/512GB is so small I'd generally go for the latter. Next game you want to play might well have a larger install size so it's nice to have a bit more space to work with.
  2. They're a garbage-tier brand, so they rarely get reviewed. They know their products are crap, so they have no reason to send samples to reviewers. Gold certification only measures efficiency and does not guarantee quality.
  3. 2010 is when Nvidia GPUs were notoriously hot and loud though.
  4. Nobody really knows, but bear in mind we are right on the cusp of a new console generation, where VRAM requirements can increase faster than usual.
  5. But it would probably not provide a commensurate return on the investment. The business of making graphics cards using GPU chips generally has much thinner margins than the business of designing the GPU chips (and outsourcing fabrication, usually to TSMC).
  6. Awesome! There's also the EU III Collection for $3.24. That's the actually complete version with the last 2 expansions.
  7. It's a slightly polished/updated version of Europa Universalis I. It's an absolute classic among Paradox strategy games, but it is very old. I think the only reason you'd play it instead of the later games in the series would be nostalgia or, I guess, for a simpler game that's closer to a board game. If you want an affordable grand strategy game, I would recommend Europa Universalis III Complete Edition. It's hugely improved over EU II, without being as overwhelming as EU IV. Confusingly, it's not actually the complete set of expansions, there is an upgrade pack with the last coupl
  8. Minerals are not vitamins. They're organic molecules, which are often the source of cofactors for enzymes (for example, pyridoxine = vitamin B6 is converted into the common enzymatic cofactor pyridoxal phosphate after ingestion). Calcium is a mineral, not a vitamin.
  9. Please don't give dangerously misleading medical advice. There are several different B vitamins, some of which can be dangerous to take in excess. Overdosis of vitamin B6 can lead to irreversible neurological damage, for example.
  10. If it has tripped the breakers and made a loud pop, I would absolutely not try to turn the PSU back on, at least not with the PC still connected.
  11. 10700K launched at almost the same price as the 5800X. And if they ever add a 5700X...
  12. Motion blur in film and games is different from the motion blur you sometimes see with your eyes. Fake motion blur does not make a game look more like what you'd see with your eyes, just like film grain or lens flare or depth of field. These are all fake effects meant to look like film. Bear in mind no game has ever even implemented saccadic masking.
  13. That's not true. Motion blur in games is designed to emulate film, rather than the human visual system. Check the Digital Foundry video OP linked. He goes on about how the virtual shutter speed has to be high for it to look good, for example. Well, shutter speed is something cameras have and our eyes do not.
