  1. I don't drink alcohol either, unless the setting calls for it. I don't smoke, be it legal or illegal anything, I've never taken any sort of drugs that wasn't prescribed by my doctor... I'm as "boring as can be" in the eyes of some people (I've been told as much by my ex who pretty much did everything, we weren't a good fit as you can expect). I just don't see the appeal. I'll take a drink, the smallest possible quantity if offered during the holidays, but I don't go out of my way to buy it. I just don't enjoy the taste. I've tasted from 2% to 47% alcohol. Under 5% is
  2. Bit high, but it can depend on a variety of factors. Like your case and how good the airflow is. If you have a case that's basically designed to look pretty and little more, expect high temps (cases with plastic or glass blocking 95% of the available airflow to the frontal fans which can only get incidental airflow from the tiniest of openings on the sides of it, along with a glass side panel, for example... Don't expect your GPU to run cool with that kind of config) As long as the load temps are under 90~95C, it should be fine.
  3. Yes. Just plug it in, format it during the windows install on the new PC and you can then use it as storage. If you don't format it outside of windows (like during windows install), you may or may not be able to properly format it within Windows if it already contains Windows on it. Windows doesn't like deleting itself, even if it's not actually itself and is just a secondary drive. If this was a storage drive in the old PC, it doesn't matter.
  4. You can't buy "roms". You buy the games, you rip them yourself by hacking the console it's on and enabling some sort of "backup" feature in homebrew that lets you dump the ROM. You mentioned PS2. Just buy the games on ebay (or in a local pawn shop), rip them with your PC's disc drive. Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance 2 is less than $30 CAD for PS2 on Canadian Ebay. Dunno which one you looked at.
  5. First time I'm ever buying youtuber merch! About $60 CAD.

    Hope it makes up for the years of using adblock. lol

     

    I wanted a new desk mat. Looked everywhere, the biggest size I could find was 900x400, unless I was willing to pay ridiculous sums of money. I already have a 900x400, so that was out of the question and I'm changing it because it's too damn small. I'm missing a good 10+ cm at the top of mine for me to use it comfortably without always shifting it.

    Then I remembered, wait, don't they have some? I thought they were all sold out, really. Turns out, they still had some 900x700.

    Considering my desk is 74cm in depth, this was perfect. Ideally, I would've wanted a 1000x700 to cover most of the usable width space on my desk (155cm in width, but with the printer and case, I have 112cm left...). But oh well, this will do.

    Now to wait 6 months for it to ship and arrive.😂

      The oddball and large sizes are definitely where their product shines. The basic ones...well...that's a tough price to swallow.

  6. Pretty much this. If games cannot be geoblocked, it just means games will no longer be "affordable" in places where the living wage is much lower than elsewhere. Otherwise you'll have people buying games in random poor third world country that cost like 1/3 the price it would be in any other first world country and reselling the keys.
  7. And like everything else, it will be sold out in milliseconds and be resold for 3x the price. I'm guessing Nvidia had a bunch of older GPU cores they needed to get rid of.
  8. Gaming laptops usually have horrendous battery life and are massive/heavy (every gram matter when your school books are heavy enough as it is) They aren't a great choice for students, unless you literally only keep it in your room and never bring it to a lecture or something like that. A better choice for students, if everything needed for your course can be done "online", is a regular quad core chromebook. They are fast(if it's an x86 quad core CPU... Avoid dual cores and low end ARM CPUs from yesteryear that are still being sold for some insane reason... Look for reviews and
  9. You mean the volume mixer? Right click the volume icon in the systray and If you meant just have the window that opens, be wider by default... Then no.
  10. I'm barely even noticing any "screen door" on my Quest 2, if anything, it looks great to me. Wouldn't this be moot as we increase the resolution? I guess this could enable lower res VR... But I'm not sure how I would feel about blurred vibrating screen right in front of my eyes. Fully expect to feel sick.
  11. Never understood why anyone would choose Dashlane over literally any other Password manager... The free version only allows up to 50 passwords and 1 device, when LastPass essentially offer unlimited devices, unlimited passwords, all free. In any case, I'm guessing they didn't have enough users on Desktop to justify the continued app development? Either that or they needed to cut some jobs to save money and the Desktop devs were the first to go.
  12. This is quite true. 5 years ago, if you had invested some money in S&P 500 index fund, today that money would've almost doubled. Could you make more money by investing in random companies? Sure. But unlike an index fund that typically always go up: Regular stocks are unpredictable. You may invest $1000 in a stock that's worth a few pennies today and in 5 years it could be worth $50, basically making your initial $1000 investment into a $50k+ investment... Or it could end up in a bankruptcy and you losing all your money. So basically, if you wa
  13. If you see my picture, you see that "previous drivers" link is still there for me. Along with everything else. Maybe you just missed it and don't remember?
  14. I know they made it a bit less obvious compared to before, but you only need to click on one of these links to get the download button to appear.
