  1. Spruced her up with a $35 set of RGB Fans. Not bad. Hard to take a clear picture of but she sure looks good in person.There is a crack in my window panel I'd like to fix or replace it rather than buy a new case as I was originally planning. All she needed was a good cleaning, a little re-wiring, and some new fans and she looks fantastic. Runs like a dream too. I think she's a full fledged 1080P Gaming Rig at this point and proudly so.
  2. I recently chose the RX580 over the 5600XT and I'm not unhappy. I'm not planning on keeping it for long but it'll do for what little I spent on it until I get my hands on a 6800. This is just one benchmark (Furmark ROG) but I'm pulling decent frames in games too. This isn't the "last you 5 years" card but neither is the 5500XT and I think this one is cheaper. Plus I'm overclocking it Air Cooled and it's staying under 72C. IMO older cards with wider memory buses tend to outperform newer cards with hacked down buses.
  3. Part 2: Son of the Humble Build So my Son got to build his own computer for his birthday using my old parts and some new ones he got as gifts. I thought it appropriate to list it here since some of his components came from the above build literally making it a child computer. Craziness but also fun! What he got was this: MSI Mini ITX AMD B450 with Wifi (this thing is tiny) AMD Ryzen 5 2600 ROG Strix Radeon RX 570 4GB 16GB Corsair Vengeance 3200MHz 256GB Team SSD 2TB Seagate Barracuda Rosewill Prism M RGB enabled Mid Tower 6
  4. I'm still benching her but I'm not unhappy at all with these results. I can live with this while I save some more bucks for that RX 6800. lol
  5. My name is Matt, and I grew up in Lansing, MI. Back in the mid-late 90's we used to have computer stores, not just like Compu USA or Best Buy. We had local computer stores where you could walk in and talk to knowledgeable people about hardware and software and they could sell you anything from a PCI backplate cover to replace the one you tore out of the wrong slot to a full system custom built to your own specifications and everything in between. We also had computer shows where vendors from all over the country would bring in their latest and greatest gadgets and hardware and we would spend
