  1. If you really want the S21 Ultra, you can actually get some really solid deals from carriers. Though if you have decent credit and keep your devices Samsung direct is better.

    Phone, plus Galaxy Pro ear buds, a SmartTag and $100 towards accessories.

    Interesting how they have moved to having exclusive colors to buying from the website.

  2. Unplug the HDD, and plug it back in once you've installed Windows. You can also right click and see the drive info.
  3. I really don't think you're going to find anything new for that price. That's more in line with what you'd pay for a Chromebook. Dell makes some laptops slightly north of $300, but you're looking at something with pretty limited cores, and a 720p screen. With a budget like that, I'd probably look into a used Lenovo. Then upgrade the RAM, and perhaps SSD size if required. For new, you're really looking at around $550 to get something decent.
  4. lol need to contain that rage son. Did you check the video card, and all other components inside the PC?
  5. It's uniquely mine. Though, anyone else who ordered that ShuttlePC SKU would have essentially the exact same thing. Except perhaps for the 16GB of RIPJAW RAM, that's rather unique. I've considered throwing a larger SSD in, but 128GB is more than enough. I don't really think the computers built today are toooo cookie cutter. I mean, there's usually 3 or 4 motherboards that are go-tos...but they're the best, why would you get something that's worse performing just to be different? Same for the CPU. RAM is whatever is cheapest. It's kind of hard to make an absolutely unique
  6. Any of these: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/9fVG3C/asus-va24ehe-238-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-90lm0560-b011b0 https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/WYbCmG/aoc-24b2xh-238-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-24b2xh https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/bPJmP6/samsung-s24r350-238-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-ls24r350fhnxza https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/6QkgXL/asus-va24dq-238-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-va24dq They've all got shit stands, so maybe go with the Samsung and spend a little on a monitor arm. If you live in a major city (especially Vancouver) check the classifieds. It
  7. Mostly large file transfers. Might help a bit in smaller ones too, but for what you listed I wouldn't bother. I doubt you'd notice the second or two that it might be a bit faster.
  8. I'd rather just spend $15 on an SSD, with more capacity and multitudes more speed.
  9. Seems horribly overpriced. Also, graphics cards are very rarely in poor physical condition, even when they're dead.
  10. Looks like a lot of....useless stuff. Recycling is calling. When are you ever going to use an 80GB HDD?
  11. I'd want to know. No reason not to, really. It gives you time to say your goodbyes, your apologies, and do things you might not have otherwise done. Let's be real though, it's pretty unlikely that we'd have something that large coming towards earth without us knowing. That's so simplistic it's adorable. Psh you wouldn't be ruining anything, who watches TV? Yeahhh that's not really that big though. At least not on the scale that the OP is talking. Russia, for example, has tested bombs with more than 1,570 times the force of both of the bombs dropped on J
  12. Most people don't copy files or encrypt/decrypt files on a daily basis. By the sounds of it though there's no need to spend the extra on the 980 Pro level drive. I'd just go with the one that comes with the warranty.
  13. Except peanuts are a more common allergy (thanks mostly to poor parenting), this is more of a subset of a subset...it's getting into really tiny fractions of the population at that point.
