  1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-OptiPlex-7020-MT-i7-4770-3-40Ghz-8GB-RAM-240GB-SSD/133519464016 (Offer this guy $190. If he counters, go to $200 and stay there. Do not pay more than $200 for a 7020 specced like this.) https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-GTX-1650-Ventus-XS-4G-128-Bit-HDMI-GDRR5-DirectX-12-VR-Ready-Graphics-Card/353157754123 Grab a 1TB hard drive for games and additional storage, then add a second 8GB stick of DDR3 for about $15-20. That puts you around $405. You don't need the PSU or the SSD with this build, so back those costs out. If you can't put that much scratch to
  2. I think D1 involves PCIe. With the computer completely unplugged, take the CMOS battery out and use compressed air to blast out the PCIe slots. Check the contacts of anything connected to those slots and use a pencil eraser to gently sweep off anything you see., then hit it with compressed air. Reinsert the CMOS battery and try to boot without anything PCIe connected first. If it boots, insert the PCIe cards, testing each slot. If one slot is causing the issue, there's your problem. If it still just refuses to work, I'd contact Gigabyte. I doubt that a Skylake-era board is still in warranty, b
  3. Another CX. The CX lineup is currently using a very good platform, and the CX550M would suit you fine. The CX650M would be overkill and cover you in the event of upgrades to comparable modern equivalents like the 5600X and 6800 XT.
  4. Tweet at them? Most companies that big with a social media presence have a customer service account of some kind.
  5. Don't bring up any more than you have to. Say nothing at all about your account being banned. Tell them that you saw $1,XXX.xx (exact amount is needed) worth of purchases made to your credit card by Sony PSN, and you did not authorize them. If they bring up your account being banned, say, "I'm only concerned about the fraudulent purchases." Be polite, but be firm. Don't let the topic stray from the purchases, and if they refuse to help you with those or try to get rid of you as a banned account, get all the documentation you have of the fraudulent purchases together and write out a
  6. I highly doubt you'll get the account back, but I've been wrong before. Sony may take pity on you, but if it's tied to funny business with the games purchased, you're probably not getting it back. Focus on the charges. Getting that $1K back is the overriding priority here, and if you call Sony and start asking about getting the account back, you're going to get hung up on long before you get to the fraudulent purchases.
  7. You've got to talk to a human being on the phone. Online chat is where to go for simple questions and problems. They're not even going to try to help you with this. You have to talk to a human being. Make shit up to get past the automatic menu if you have to, just talk to a person. Your account is gone and you will probably never see it again, but unless you like the idea of buying a bunch of codes for games that now belong to someone else, you've got to get those purchases reversed. If Sony is no help or you can't get to a person, call your credit card company ASAFP and open dispu
  8. Any B550 with non-self-destructy VRMs (i.e., there's a heatsink on the damn things). With Ryzen 5, it's more a question of which B550 board gives you the features you want than it is a question of which B550 board can handle your CPU.
  9. You might be able to file a chargeback with your credit card company. Call the number on the back of your card, tell them that it arrived damaged due to negligence on the merchant’s part and the merchant won’t let you return it. They might say that your card only covers you on fraudulent purchases, or they might be willing to step in if you open a dispute.
  10. $400 is about where most expect the RTX 3060 Ti to launch, and the 3060 Ti is supposedly on par with or better than a 2080S. If you can't wait, that's not a terrible deal, but I'd still try to knock the seller down by $30-40. If you can wait and the seller won't budge on price, I'd do so, knowing that (1.) the only benchmarks we have are unofficial and might not hold up, and (2.) launch might be an absolute clusterfuck. Personally, I'd wait for the 3060 Ti and its warranty, but the 2080S is a great card if you need one now. This is totally irrelevant. Mining a card i
  11. First rule of shopping on Newegg: don't shop on Newegg. If you must shop on Newegg, use their eBay storefront so you can force a return through eBay's policy even if they don't want to--and they don't want to. Their customer service has never been great, but it's an absolute turd in the last couple of years. If you paid via PayPal, you can probably open a refund request directly through them. You'll probably end up paying return shipping, but you'd at least get your original shipping back. To be brutally honest about it, even if the drive is deader than the horse I'm beating here,
  12. It's a good try, but it's just a try. There's a lot of guesswork here, and you can't build something like this off of guesswork. You need actual numbers for things like employee salaries, for one, and you need to know the various numbers that go into the costs. I agree, Linus' last comment on this did seem something like a challenge to everyone to go figure it out, but I don't expect anyone to ever say, "Bingo!". That's just not something you do with a privately held company outside of very specific circumstances, especially when numbers like the CEO's salary are directly tied to that number.
  13. eBay is not the same place that it was in 2012. These days, the seller gets bufu'd on everything. As a seller, I have PTSD from some of the shit I've put up with. As a buyer? Zero problems, zero headaches that weren't swiftly resolved in my favor by eBay. eBay is a different world now. All a buyer has to do is say, "It's not as shown," and they get a refund 100% of the time. No pictures necessary, no further description, they just win. And if the seller gets back a box full of snake turds, well, that seller had better take that box of snake turds down to the police station and f
