Show off your latest purchase!

The cassette deck in my office was pretty much toast so I bought a new one:

If anyone's interested it's a Luxman K-250. Not a high-end deck by any means, but it's still a major upgrade from what I had before.

Unfortunately I had my refrigerator die this weekend, so I had to make an unplanned purchase:

Unfortunately Home Depot cant deliver it for about a week and a half, so I'm currently living out of a chest freezer and a small dorm sized refrigerator.

I admit that I am not a refrigerator enthusiast either. I understand the physics behind how they work, but dont follow innovation or changes at all. 

 

I was trying desperately to save my previous one by getting new thermostats for it (the only thing that came up slightly out of spec) when the new thermostats measured the same resistance as my current ones. So I talked to the guys at the appliance repair place and they diagnosed it instantly as a freon leak, which means a new compressor and that costs about as much as a fridge. So I quietly sobbed for a minute then asked which refrigerators they see the least, since they repair but dont sell. They said Whirlpool and Maytag. 

 

So I took their advice and bought a Whirlpool.

The only flaw in the logic that I can see is that perhaps they see those the least because people dont often buy those brands, or get them repaired by "First party". But hey, most are probably gonna last 5-10 years anyways

That is possible, but it's carried at Home Depot, so I dont feel like they're uncommon. 

 

What's dumb is that my last fridge was from 2012, and it died; meanwhile the freezer in my basement is from 1992 and runs like a champ.

So as you know, GPU pricing has been kinda fucked lately.  To the point where I’m recommending people go used instead of new.  Even GTX 1050s and RX 560s are usually at least $150, when MSRP is like $110 or $120 for both cards.

Well this has led to an issue for me, as I want to upgrade the GPU in my HTPC, but the OEM motherboard will only accept GPUs that don’t require external power.

That’s a 4GB 560.  I paid $100 for it.  Free shipping too.

 

Now look at the highlighted portion.  It isn’t the gimped 560 that has the same amount of compute units as the 460 (14).  This is the full fledged RX 560 with all 16 compute units, or 1024 stream processors.

For $100.  I haven’t seen prices like this since before miners started fucking things over.

 

I think this will be a good card for my HTPC.

Purchased an L-desk two weeks ago and just set it up last week. It's an IKEA Galant, it has some heavy sun damage, but my large mousepad covers that, so no problem. Got it for quite cheap because of that damage.

Furthermore got a desk chair, IKEA Markus. New, but it had a nice sale on it and I also got some IKEA drawer which I also got some money off. 

 

Yes, I am an IKEA fan. Also, yes a new 'show off your setup' picture is overdue.
