    smmmokin got a reaction from Jamie42 in I want to participate in the verified gamer thing to get a graphics card at MSRP...then sell it   
    But I'm not going to. I admit I seriously thought about it and I know others are too. I feel this is an important topic to bring up.   It's a fact people will participate and try to get one to resell but anyone like me who has that thought needs to stay away from it. I was so lucky and got a brand new EVGA RTX 2060 super just before the holidays for $550(Canadian) Considering costs now I'm feeling pretty good about myself. Times are tough and I need the cash so a chance to make money is just that. It would help. Reality is all you're doing is making sure people who need a card but don't have a lot of cash right now will never get one any time soon. It sucks to buy from a scalper. Those that need a card will be forced to pay crazy prices for a lesser card or they will have to wait months without a card.   People like myself(You. I know you're out there) who want to resell need to not do it. Especially in this case with Linus stepping up to actually do something that will help solve this problem. It's gotta suck to have a dead GPU right now. Lets be kind to those people.   It's really important this time that the community step up and make sure those that need help, get the help. Especially since it's Linus stepping up to help people. I doubt all the hassle of doing this and getting it together is financially worth it for him.

    smmmokin got a reaction from LIGISTX in 120mm fans. Have 1 intake, 1 exhaust. Learned overclocking. Need more airflow. Have room for fans. Toss stock? 3 intake 1 exhaust? Certain fan brand?   
    HOW DARE YOU THANK ME! You have no right to do that. It is I who needs to thank you. I feel like a dirtbag coming here sometimes because somewhere on the internet is the answer I need. But to be specific and talk to people about exactly my situation helps so much more than digging and picking something random. In this thread I 100% have all the info I need to be confident in what I'm going to do next. This site has never led me down the wrong path and it's because of people like you who take the time to reply.
     
    You've made a lot of posts and have helped a lot of people as has thrasher_565. It's people like you two who make this place great and I hope you both know the impact your time has. I'm going to buy the fans he recommended then I'll have some kicking around I can always use in the future and I'm not going to worry about positive air pressure since I don't have a lot of dust where I am so I feel comfortable to play with all options. Back of my head was "Maybe it'll be bad" but then you replied.
     
    Two of you replied and both of you helped. I hope both of you know your time is not wasted. It's helpful and very very very much appreciated. I hope people like you never think otherwise. The internet can be trash. But people like you make it great. I really do mean that.
     
    Thanks friend :)

    smmmokin got a reaction from xg32 in EVGA RTX 2060 super w/ Ryzen 5 2600. Is Ryzen 5 3600 a move that makes sense? FRAMERATE - Alternative AMD CPU?   
    Appreciate it. It could be a lack of interest but I have a really hard time wrapping my head around things like this. I've been trying but I just don't get it. I would of put money down you were wrong. But as I said I trust you people 100%. Appreciate the input!

    smmmokin reacted to Letgomyleghoe. in What I want to say to all the people who take the time to reply here   
    I don't see people being dick when it's a person like you. People start becoming dicks when there is people who you tell something and they are unwilling to do anything to try and understand what you're saying. You explain it to them and they start being a dick. Naturally you become a dick and then the linus police shows up. At least thats how I got in trouble with the linus police.

    smmmokin reacted to Zusafek in Need a cheapish case. Very slow build being done cheap but slowly be upgraded   
    I personally like the Phanteks P400 series. They have a non rgb version that is cheaper as well.  Plenty of room for cable management, large gpu, large cpu coolers, has 2 mechanical hdd slots and 2 ssd slots behind motherboard tray.  Good solid case for less than a hundred bucks.  You can also check out the p300 and the p350x. 
     
    Also another good case is the Meshify C.

    smmmokin got a reaction from Jenko32 in Having a bad contrast issue. Seems like something is turning on as windows loads. Everything looks ugly   
    Nothing in there but thanks for mentioning Autoruns. Interesting to have. I think a reinstall is in order. I hate windows so much. It's always something.
