  1. Not really but if you were to upgrade the graphics card later on it would, as opposed to the i5 which will still be able to handle a better GPU. I'd still go with the i5 if he's going to keep the PC for a while and upgrade it in the future.
  2. Is the amp powering on? If so, it's the RCAs to the deck or the wires to the sub. If not, it's not getting power from the battery and/or the remote turn-on wire. Pretty easy to diagnose with a multimeter - the positive should be reading 12V any time, while the remote should be reading 12V whenever the radio is on.
  3. Only because it's one of their crappy models. I have a Dual too, but it's the higher end XDM460 model (looks identical though, so he probably didn't know when he bought his). Puts out 22W RMS per channel which is obviously lot more than the 260 and actually more than most brand name decks. Just by ear I notice the improvement compared to my old Pioneer deck as well. But come on, FIVE watts per channel? Most small portable Bluetooth speakers put out more.
  4. When my friend asks me why the aftermarket stereo he put in sounds like crap, then I look up the specs
  5. I've been using Motorcraft for a while but since I got my Dart I've been using good ol' Mopar
  6. Welp, switched my family over to just using OEM oil filters... no more Fram around here
  7. When I wake up and see that my idol tweeted this


  8. Considering the MSRP of the two are only $20 apart anyways, there will rarely be a time when it's not worth it to step up to the 480. Not to mention the 1060 is a similar price as well.
  9. Nexus 5 on Swappa goes for within that price range
  10. Sure why not, as long as everything is tightened down properly. I just drove mine to a LAN party and back yesterday in the trunk and it was fine.
  11. An Rx 480 system has pretty much the same power consumption as a GTX 970 system, which is quite little. 520W will be more than fine considering that the S12 is a quality PSU.
