  1. Seriously? The first update to this blog in who even knows how long, and it's this? I must be slipping
  2. Double Dissipation cards generally hold their value quite well, those are some pretty good coolers.
  3. You look great by the way. Very healthy.
  4. New forum who dis 👀

      I gotchu fam

  5. We don't need to know the reason he left, nor are we owed one. There are no hard feelings either way, and that is sufficient.
  6. I've heard pretty good things about XFX. I usually base hardware prices off of other cards of the same chipset and, to an extent, model.
  7. Your collection of retro tech never ceases to amaze me. I'm in awe every time I watch that episode of Tech Hoarders That's a very nice looking system! It looks to me like the PSU is lacking a bit of support, is that me or just the way the picture looks?
  8. -Thread locked- This is better suited as a status update. Stay in school, kids.
  9. There would be a very slightly higher chance if Ivan still worked for Linus Media Group.
  10. PSU done borked itself overnight. Again. Hate it when they do that.


    Might not get this rig online until the holiday season :(

      Or if until you visit a scrapyard with me over the holidays

  11. Hey kids, Crunchy here with another budget PC build status update.


    Remember waaaaaay back when I said I wasn't buying an HD 7850 for this rig? I didn't buy one. Instead, I nailed down a much better card for the same price through the power of hunting Ebay listings for way too many hours.


    Allow for a couple weeks and nearly $20 in shipping because Ebay seller didn't use USPS flat rate Priority mail, and new toy is here ❤️

      I mean that's how I found my second 1070ti, so good job!

      That's how I found my 1070, actually. Got that card at a steal, too.


      Although I snagged this baby for less than half retail price, my 1070 was closer to half retail. Used market long games really do pay off

  12. I didn't realize until just recently how much I actually miss this:
  13. It'll be a bottleneck for sure, but you shouldn't need to update your BIOS in order to install a new graphics card.
  14. The alert was my post asking the forum underlings how their day was.
  15. Hello forum underlings, how was your day?

    Unfortunately not SATA cables. A sad day, but also a fine day considering what's coming is slightly more interesting than SATA cables 👀

      SATA cables would be nice. Kind of hard to have a PC when I don't have anything to connect hard drives with xD

      I need to shrink this nest of cables and SATA is the worst offender. Want some? If you're not picky about color I have generic red, black, and a few black/white.


      Also in both 0° & 90° variants.
