Off topic chit chat

What other websites or forums in english would you suggest me to take a look at?

I am planning on building my very first computer and I would like to find information related to it.

I would like to find reviews about computer parts and displays and such 😀👍

Hey there. There are a bunch of PC building/parts guides floating around on the forums, if you're up for a bit of reading:

Spoiler
  • DIY PC by Windspeed 36: The basic run-down on the parts in a PC build, what each part's purpose is, and why the parts have the features they have or how these features work.
  • General Rules of Thumbs and Q&A Guide on Basic PC Parts by Gonio: A detailed guide on picking PC parts, understanding what each part's purpose is, and deciding what parts are best suited for your individual situation/intent.
  • The Ultimate PC Part Compatibility Guide by Fgtfv567: A good guide on PC part compatibility that takes way more into account than PC Part Picker.

Please note that these threads were written some time ago, so specific item recommendations may not apply to 2020. Some have TLDR's in them, some don't. Overall they're pretty well-written and easy to understand.

 

If you'd like to have a go at planning your first build, check out PC Part Picker. Their PC parts lists aren't all-inclusive (for example, they don't list small/local brand parts), but their search filters are pretty neat, they'll list the mainstream, widely-available components you can choose from, and it'll tell you whether you'll run into any possible problems with your build (compatibility issues, clearance concerns, etc.). You can also look at other people's builds for reference, or look through people's comments on their thoughts/experiences with specific PC parts (these aren't in-depth, stress-testing reviews, however). If you've planned out your setup and would like some more advice on your build, it's worth a shot posting in the New Builds and Planning section.

 

The only tech review site I would recommend confidently and whole-heartedly is GamersNexus. They stress-test their components and do an in-depth analysis that goes into a ridiculous (and awesome) level of detail. The reviews are split into sections that are easy to navigate with CTRL-F, and if you haven't the patience to read through long walls of text, their conclusions always sums up the story nicely and succinctly.

 

The LTT forum also has sub-forums dedicated to specific PC Hardware, including one for Monitors. Consider posting a thread in the appropriate sub-forum, if you'd like some second opinions on your specific PC part choices.

My takeout food delivery was somehow sent to my old address, and they didn't turn it away!

 

Thankfully Just Eat refunded me.

 

When this (lockdown) is all over I am going to drop a card through their door (its nearby) and let them know it was on the house and not me, you know, in case they are worried.

Since they didnt refuse the food, i guess they dont give a shit.

I feel like I’m too young to be here, yea, I’m 13 so I can probably be here but the fact that a bloody 13 year old is somewhat helping random people with troubleshooting and advice (simple stuff for now but I’m hoping to help with more complex issues and advice in the future) is just bazar to me. In my local community I’m “the tech guru” operating my local churches av system (full studio live 32 and PowerPoint) and the sound system at my school, but being a member of an online forum with most people being 16+ and acually being able to contribute 🤯

We're bringing back the 'off topic' thread however there are a few things we want to make sure are clear

 

  • Ensure a friendly atmosphere to our visitors and forum members.
  • "Don't be a dick" - Wil Wheaton.
  • "Be excellent to each other" - Bill and Ted.
  • Remember your audience; both present and future.
  • Don't make us lock this one because someone got carried away with the porn.

I think this is a cool forum!

Pretty much - last one got to 190 pages before everyone broke out the porn and we called it quits.   I like to keep it interesting - my original VB error code was getting on a bit

Wow it went that long..... I'm surprised a bunch of anonymous people on the wed restrained themselves that long, I'm impressed.

I'm gonna fire away here, since this seems like the place to ask for off topic things.

 

Have I gone insane, or is there a video by ltt where ltt were the first people to be let into Nvidia hq and see the way they tested screens for gesync and gtesync compatable standars?

 

I remember it so vividly, but I can't seem to find it no-where

Why was 6 afraid of 7?

 

Because 7 was a registered terrorist and an enemy of the state

Greetings and salutations, 

 

New here. This hand basket the world has found its self in, especially here in the states is mind blowing. But i digress. 

 

I watch LTT you tube clips pretty regularly, they are entertaining, informative, and highlight how out of touch i have gotten with some of the tech I am familiar with. Finally stepped into this community when the airing of the F@H episode release near the beginning of this pandemic. I have been an on and off donator of my processing power going back to the initial days of the SETI project. Its nice to be apart of such a movement, I really enjoyed the competitive unified nature of the F@H COVID-19 crunch a few months ago. Only to be followed by the Pentathlon 2020, and now the F@H Summer Sprint. 

 

I anticipate leveraging the awesomeness of this community to inspire a way forward on upgrading my long over due computer build, specs in the sig. Until next time folks.
