Most definitely 馃槃

But the desktop is 165hz and the TV is 60hz.聽 And the TV is more for casual couch fun? Though the 1080 def puts the couch gaming PC as a tick below Xbox Series X and PS5... But well above Xbox One X and PS4 Pro... Hrm.

There's def times I've mused switching the two for certain situations, but the 3080 is huge.聽 That thing needs a support arm installed and everything.聽 The 1080 is a lot easier to fit and it only needs an 8pin for power.

Tier lists for building a PC.

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/聽 OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

BluRay Recordable media is great.聽 It does away with the problematic organic dyes of CDR and DVDR to allow pretty amazing shelf life.聽 You can also read it in very available consumer drives.聽 Short of a hammer, a microwave, or trying to dissolve it with chemicals or prolonged UV exposure, it's bulletproof.聽 It can survive temperatures, humidity, and even EM radiation well beyond the limits tape media would withstand.

...But those read and write speeds are a downer...聽 Over 2hrs to write and verify 87GB to a disc.

Hey everyone, I looked around and I didn't see a good thread but this one to post a thank you, so I thought I'd use this... here we go.

Thanks to Linus and everyone in LMG for doing what you're doing. I found your videos about 6 months ago and it's reignited my love of geeking out on the PC both as a hermit at times, and with my two little kids who like to geek out with me, Breath of the Wild is our game of choice at this moment. That being said, that is not all that I appreciate you for...

I'm also a teacher, and former (or soon to be) Assistant Principal down in the states. Many of my students who start to struggle at school for the most part say their dream is to be a Youtuber one day. Knowing what I know and not wanting to be that guy, I don't shoot that down. We take the time in my office or classroom, and examine what they want to do. I use your videos (both the early ones, and new ones) to show success in that venture, but also the work that you've all put into it. I help them map out the three things that stand out in your videos. 1. How do you stand out from the crowd? 2. How much you have to hustle and really know the business to succeed, and 3. Are you willing to stick with it the long-term? After mapping all of this out and showing what you do, you see the change in their eyes, sometimes it's realization that it's not as easy as just unboxing things, but there has been that occasional student who takes what I say to heart and really starts to plan things out. And for that... I say Thank You.

I'm that teacher that talks video games with my students, and the latest tech and your videos really help me hang in there with them :). Someday I'll be able to look at one of your builds and actually be able to do it myself (when my wife lets me drop that kind of coin), but until that day comes, I enjoy seeing what you do and dreaming of a system of my own one day, or a sweet camera for my wife. I've already taken your advice on a few other things and it's paid off huge! That being said, for what I've learned about the business side of Youtube through your videos and the impact it's been able to have on my students, once again, Thank You.

I hope this video finds everyone at LMG well and I don't know if you've done one, but I'd love to see a video where you talk about how and why you started, and when you hit that moment where you realized you were making it. If I could stop by and deliver this to you in person, I would, but being in Washington State, and COVID, it's a bit of a drive :). Best of luck to you all and Thank You.

Drew

If you don't mind sharing, are they centered around a specific event, have a specific theme, follow a similar format, etc.?
I had a 20x dreamloop of the same dream/nightmare with a few things changed each time, until #17 when I realized I could control the dream. Then it was fun.

It seems to depend on the dream for me, and how long I'm in it. The "quick ones", or the ones that seem to last 15 minutes but are actually 2 hours or so I've never been able to control, but the "long ones", or the ones that go 80% of the night are the ones I'm usually able to control. It's not instantly though - I have to adapt to the dream, in a sense, before I'm able to control聽what I do. If it's long enough I'll eventually be able to control the whole dream, though it's only happened twice.

Both times it was really fun to experiment with gravity and having things fly.

I paid CAD$20 for this Radeon R9 280X in late 2019 from a computer store that was shuttering, actually it was a pair for CAD$40 all in.聽 This one had bad fans and was missing it's bracket.聽 CAD$30 in replacement parts and I'm finally going to reassemble and repair this and get it on eBay for at least $120. :3

This was borderline ewaste when I Got it, but now the GPU market is nuts and this is a perfectly serviceable 1080p card

Of course be sure to give the right context/information on the PC, which this thread gives some detail in what you can/should mention to get the best help:
