  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. I'd rather just spend $15 on an SSD, with more capacity and multitudes more speed.
  5. Seems horribly overpriced. Also, graphics cards are very rarely in poor physical condition, even when they're dead.
  6. Looks like a lot of....useless stuff. Recycling is calling. When are you ever going to use an 80GB HDD?
  7. 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
  8. Sounds like something a hoarder would say
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Hahaha, that would explain the constant "I'm an idiot" posts So, sell them on? If you're not using them, they're of no use to you.
  12. Ultrawide monitors are such a pain when it comes time to move.

  13. You won't really have a warranty on them, but shouldn't matter; the drives dying is pretty rare. Just have to make sure the price is right. What are you using it for where you think you need the added speed? It's pretty rare that someone can actually benefit from it.
  14. The best thing you can do, is go to your local classifieds and compare pricing. The prices you get here will simply be what that person would pay, or what they think someone else would pay. They're not really relevant at all unless they live where you're trying to sell it. You could be losing out on a ton of cash, or holding onto it for too long, and losing value that way.
  15. Yeah honestly I bought my desk pad I have now for $12 CDN and it's really good quality. Almost like a heavy neoprene. Paying 4x as much for something that's hopefully of similar quality is definitely more of a supporting the brand move.
