    bmx6454 reacted to Brok3n But who cares? in Deshrouding a RTX 2070? Help/thoughts wanted.   
    Warranty on Gigabyte cards is 3 years. If you bought it within around 3 years I'd recommend getting in touch with gigabyte support.

    bmx6454 reacted to Middcore in Amazon for GPU restocks is frustrating   
    Bizarre post. Anything shipped by Amazon at the very least is 100% safe and you can bully them into a return for basically any reason. If Amazon is an "unsafe" e-tailer to buy tech from I can't imagine who's considered trustworthy? Newegg, which is even more infested with fly-by-night 3rd party sellers than Amazon is AND also has awful return policies?

    Am I the only one that would never trust Amazon to buy a high end piece of tech there?  Too many fakes and scams on Amazon, although at least they are usually very receptive to returns, if needed.

    i wouldn't even bother with amazon, the bots are just to quick. as said by @aisle9, newegg shuffle is decent imo, got a 3060 last week from it. also, best buy usually restocks on Thursdays in the morning iirc. had success with the zotac store as well, so i would recommend checking that, usually restock late at night.

    bmx6454 reacted to Chris Pratt in Beast gaming PC for all the money I can muster ($7,000 / £5,000 range)   
    The thing is that the parts aren't free. But, even playing your game, nope.
     
    The 5950X is only the "best" if you actually need the extra cores/threads, which you don't for gaming. The 5900X, for example, can actually hit 5GHz with a good chip and PBO2's curve optimizer. Some have even gotten the 5800X there as well. You won't need more than 8 cores for gaming for a long time.
     
    It's not that that's necessarily a bad board, but there's far better X570 boards, if price is no object.
     
    Likewise, with the RAM. If it's all free give me 4000MHz CL15. CL17 isn't even that great for 3600MHz. Also, you don't need more than 16GB for gaming, so anything over that is just a useless lump on your mobo. However, 32GB might make sense with this particular RAM to get the full four ranks. That's just because each stick is single ranked though. 64GB is just excessive for now reason.
     
    The PCIe 4.0 storage is absolutely useless for gaming, currently. Maybe in a couple of years, but it a couple of years it will be cheaper.
     
    1600W PSU? Even with all the money in the world, that makes no sense. That type of power supply is for running like 4+ GPUs, mostly for mining, or perhaps some sort of extreme data sciences scenarios. You don't need more than 850W tops.
     
    So, no, just sorting by prices and throwing the most expensive things into a system doesn't make it a *beast* even if you have the money to waste.

    You stand better odds with the Newegg soufflé. Anywhere you go that just dumps stock out as they have it is going to be a long shot.

    bmx6454 reacted to LinusTech in Why do alt video sites never take off?   
    Because the only reason to go to them is if you're looking for something that's not already well-served by YouTube.
     
    It's certainly got flaws, but having spent the last few years funding the creation of a video platform, I can say with confidence that YouTube is an engineering marvel.

    i think a lot of the people who get banned from youtube, and some of the social media sites go to the new platforms, and end up bringing there toxic communities with them, often attracting even more toxic people. just a theory though.

    That's a BGA-package with a fuckton of pads -- if you have to ask a question like this, then no, you don't have the required expertise to handle it.

    bmx6454 reacted to Caroline in Why do alt video sites never take off?   
    That's what I saw too but honestly it has to be really hard to get banned on youtube, unless you upload pr0n or illegal stuff, I doubt someone gets banned from YT for a troll comment.
     
    It's a shame though as new platforms have good premises like better privacy management for users but the toxicity and circlejerk-like "content" creators just discourage me from using them.
    Yup, I'm thinking of the same, there are a lot of complaints about YT and demonetization or guidelines but at the same time the content is still nice when you're subbed to the right channels, main downside of that is that a google account is needed if you want to sub or customise your homepage and honestly I'm not fond of using google's stuff due to X and Y that's not relevant right now, I know politics or controversial topics aren't allowed so I'll stick to the guidelines now.

    bmx6454 got a reaction from mon1ka in Is there anyway to make a Xbox one wired controller wireless?   
    not really, at least not in any way worth doing imo. be easier to buy another wireless controller. they do make some products that can carry the signal wireless from your cord to the device, but even if it works, you still have the cord, just not attached to the console/pc.

    Probably not a "scam" or virus but it's definitely not needed. I'd recommend uninstalling it

    bmx6454 reacted to trag1c in transferring remote start from one car to another?   
    Entirely depends on the model of remote start and year make model of car. In theory everything should be a wire tap that the remote start plugs into but can't say without the documentation of the remote starter or documentation of the car. Some kits with some cars require that an extra key be placed into an extra lock cylinder thats wired to the TDM (Theft Deterrent Module) so that it can bypass systems such as Passkey (or any other manufacturer equivalents). So that essentially defeats all the theft deterrence of a vehicle since a key is inside the car and it is always transmitting the encryption key to the TDM. It really all depends on the vehicle and the kit. Some if improperly installed will either cause the car not to start or cause the car to not shut off. 
     
    My advice is unless you can get the proper documentation for the remote starter that you have then don't bother with it since you can cause a lot more trouble then its worth.

    Nope, as long as you don't format the storage drive the OS is on, you shouldn't have to. It's all Plug-and-Play if you rebuild the computer.
