  1. Super late to the party here but there is a difference between sustained wind speed and max gust wind speed. Im not a meteorologist but we study wind speeds in structural engineering and most of the time the max 3-sec gust is what is reported. Coincidentally buildings are designed based on the max 3-sec gust expected in a location over a 50 year return period. In Florida, thats up to 200 mph in the latest building code. Its the old crumbly buildings you need to stay away from. EDIT: So just to say, 90 mph sustained wind is crazy high. Gust are typically 2x the sustaine
  2. Not sure I understand what is going on here, but that benchmark looks totally normal. Google the difference between sequential read/write speeds vs random read/write speeds. I won't explain it better than the internet can, but essentially the ssd manufacturers rate their SSD's speed based on a best case usage scenario. Crystaldiskmark checks several usage types which is why some of the speeds are below 1000 mb/s.
  3. its in CAD so like under 100$ usd seems cheap as **** to me haha any difference between the ones I posted above?
  4. 1 TB Crucial P1 - 130$ 1 TB HP EX920 - 170$ 1 TB Crucial MX500 (sata)- 145$ 1 TB Intel 660p (NVMe) - 130$ what would you get?
  5. Looks solid but I would opt for an air cooler over a liquid cooler. Also, get an ssd boot drive.
  6. I'm looking to increase the SSD storage I have in my PC. Currently I have a 250GB Crucial MX200 boot drive with a 1 TB WD Black harddrive and another 3TB WD green storage drive. I want to move some of my games onto the SSD so Im thinking of getting a 1 TB SSD. Prices seem reasonable enough to me. I saw that the Crucial P1 NVMe drive is like only 130$ for 1TB so that looks interesting. My motherboard is an Asus Z97-Pro and it has an M.2 slot but I believe it is limited to PCIe 2.0 x4. I will upgrade my system at some point in the next few years but for now it is doing the job
  7. Canada Computers is probably your best bet if you want a physical store. Amazon.ca and newegg.ca are great if you're ordering online. Otherwise, all the major canadian retailers will ship to Montreal. I was born and raised in Montreal so I know it can be a bit of a struggle to get PC components here.
  8. EDIT: nvm misread the question. See what the guy above me said. Its a common feature nowadays that can usually be disabled.
  9. How about a used gtx 1070? Pretty sure they can be had for about that price. Should easily outperform the GTX 1660.
  10. Its publisher's decision, not the developers. They must've seen an opportunity to be more profitable on the EGS.
  11. Excited to play it on release. Its one of my favorite franchises and I'm happy to support the developer.
  12. Not normal for an Asus Strix card. I think it might be starved for air in that tight mini-itx case. Are temps better with the side panel off? Also, check the fan curve used by the card. There was a glitch at one point on some cards preventing the fans from spinning up.
  13. I'd sell the ram seperately and maybe pop in just an 8gb stick before selling the PC. The Corsair RGB ram is pretty pricey at those speeds. Might be worth as much as the rest of the system.
  14. Just as a warning, I discuss some illegal topics within this thread so I understand if it gets removed. I do not condone theft, I am merely trying to really understand how certain the grey markets I have mentioned in my title work. I was watching some random videos on youtube and stumbled across someone showing how stolen credit cards are sold on the dark web. I don't consider myself naive, yet I was kind of shocked at how easy it seemed. The person mentioned how buying digital media, such as software and video games was the lowest risk way of using a stolen card, since very little
  15. Most motherboard software is littered with bugs so I don't think this is a serious issue. I wouldn't return the motherboard because of it.
