  1. I agree on 'pile of junk', it's a pretty accurate representation of the performance of my CPU. It's literally a pile of junk.
  2. The G4560 is a bit better than that same i7-920, but still, though, you have a point.
  3. I can't believe it, lol. My current CPU, the Pentium G3240T, which is 4th generation, released in 2014, is worse than a Core i7-920, which is the very first i7 CPU released by Intel in hecking 2008. A CPU 6 years older than my current one. I just found it surprising http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Pentium-G3240T-vs-Intel-Core-i7-920/m31729vs1981 https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-Pentium-G3240T-vs-Intel-i7-920/2325vs834 http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Pentium-G3240T-vs-Intel-Core-i7-920
  4. Wow, thanks! To be honest, boot times really don't matter, unless they exceed 60 seconds, then it becomes concerning.
  5. Actually the i3-6100 is a really good CPU, many thanks! I've done a bit of research and it's a little bit faster than the G4560. FYI I originally chose the G4560 last year because one of my main reasons for getting a build was to paly Citra (a 3DS emulator) and at that time it didn't have multi-threading support, so it recommended CPUs that have really high single-core count, but now Citra actually supports multithreading and GPU acceleration, but I still stuck to the Pentium. But now that you've mentioned it and I've seen pretty good deals for used ones I've decided to purchase it instead. Ag
  6. After much research consisted of watching Youtube videos, looking up countless forums, and asking for build advice here on the LTT forum, I've come up with a build that will fit my needs, as well as my budget. First off, I chose the GTX 770, a graphics card that countless say runs great despite its age, and is available used on eBay for pretty low prices, in the range of $50-80. People say it's the equivalent of the GTX 1050, and I've seen many benchmarks that prove that. I'm fine with gaming at 720-900p, as the max resolution of my current monitor (a Toshiba flat-screen) is 720p, and the refr
  7. I'm looking to upgrade my server's CPU in the near future. Nothing special, just an AIO I turned into a simple Plex, FTP, and IRC server. Recently, I've discovered that the CPU is replaceable. The current CPU is a Pentium G3240T which supports the LGA1150 socket. The chipset, though, i don't know. I've looked through Intel's own documentation, and CPU-World, but couldn't seem to find the chipset. Do all Haswell CPUs have the same chipset? If not, what CPUs have the same chipset as the G3240T?
  8. I don't think these are *that* old, but I'll post here anyways. (sorry for minecraft quality, i took these with my old phone back in 2016) These are all trash-picked, my dad found them in the recycling bin at his workplace. My best guess as to what this used to be is a workstation PC. All of them on the floor in Ziplocs for preservation, along with some cables and the coin cell that were with them. DDR SDRAM. If i remember correctly, they're all 128MB. Ah yes, the motherboard. Unfortunately the CPU is soldered so I couldn't replace it. A PowerC
  9. I've already started backing everything up to my server PC since last night, non stop.
  10. I have a 2.5in hard drive that I took from my old laptop when its display failed. It's a Hitachi 7K500-500. It's a bit old but fast enough to use as a backup or a large file transfer device. I have it in a Sabrent 2.5in hard drive enclosure/USB adapter, and it's connected to my pc via USB3.0. I also have other drives i plug into the adapter when i need them. Lately I've been seeing some slowdowns when transfering files to the drive of my to-be build. It transfers really fast, then a few seconds through, it just freezes and when i listen to it, it makes this repeated sound. It's too
  11. "wow... that's **really** blue... should be a nice- *sees intel stock cooler* ***okay just __no__***."
  12. Okay, this is a dumb question, I know, but just for the sake of asking and finding a slight chance, will the GT 1030 work well with my current Athlon II X2 220? Or will it bottleneck like heck? Not buying another motheboard, cpu, and ram would be a good deal, and I want to find out if there's a chance. (my budget is now under $300)
