    desertcomputer got a reaction from TheWanderer in Upgrading CPU for RTX3070   
    Like what @TofuHaroto said, if you want to first in line, grab new GPU and compare performances with benchmarks with reputable sources and if difference is less than 5% no need for upgrade cpu.

    Assume you have crap cooler now, I would upgrade CPU cooler first and then fans.

    desertcomputer got a reaction from NZgamer in Cheap gaming pc parts list   
    Nope. Have look at second hand market for that price range. 100 dollars probably can just second hand/business/government ex dell prebuilt like 2nd i3 ... which is not something you want waste. Save up more.

    desertcomputer got a reaction from Juanmacaam in Thoughts on Asus Prime B450M-A?   
    You could get larger capacity SSD instead. You won't see much a difference in boot times maybe a few seconds faster but do you really need a couple seconds faster? Hmm tight budget shouldn't even look at NVME ssd for the price you could have gotten double the capacity ...  If just gaming/daily work you don't need NVME ssd, SSD is fast enough for those tasks ....

    desertcomputer got a reaction from JavierGonzalez78 in Drobo alternatives, Freenas or Windows   
    Unraid or Freenas is a good choice. What is your storage size? Freenas require a decent amount of memory for good performance with ZFS.
     
    What is max memory. I personally would just pick strongest cpu which allow you run some plugins down the line if you wish but i3 can do trick as just a file server.
     
    No GPU is required after setting initial setup for both unraid or freenas, it all can be configured at web gui or thorough terminal afterwards.

    desertcomputer got a reaction from Belgarathian in Starlink Approved in Australia by ACMA   
    Government changed. They figure it would be better to spend money on second class system that will need to upgrade down the line again.
     
    It big, but not whole of Australia was going to be covered by FTTP anyways. Majority of population is in ubran areas which was quite feasible .... instead we get FTTN and buying(spend more money) existing shitty telstra copper. Pretty much paying more money to one to a isp which has highest costing plans and highest peering bandwidth cost. I mean telstra spends alot of keep government to their pockets so is not wonder why.

    desertcomputer got a reaction from Bombastinator in Chinese X86 CPU on it's way - The Zhaoxin’s KaiXian KX-6780A   
    I mean, Intel already have know backdoor/spyware (Intel Management Engine). IMO, any backdoor access are bad and shouldn't be created in first place.

    desertcomputer got a reaction from Ben17 in ASUS laptop recommended by LTT has major design flaw   
    A really bold statement to claim for all ASUS or AMD devices. Maybe just don't buy GA502DU until ASUS address/fix the issue. Why don't you take it back to retailer for a refund?
     
    I have friends with AMD builds and old Asus laptop from 13 years ago and still working...

    Yes. Asking internet for dating advise is just digging a hole for yourself.
