Re: Son wants to expand storage on xbone

Yea, any drive will work just ssd gives a little more speed with loading times and more durability.

If you already have the 2tb laying around, give it a shot and see what he thinks. You can always get a bigger drive down the road.

Re: Son wants to expand storage on xbone

SSD :) So, the biggest advantage is not even the speed (what usb ports does the xbox have anyway? can they even do 400mbps?) but there are no moving parts so if it gets knocked around a bit, it wont die horribly!!!!!!! That said, I have a 4tb WD Red drive on my PS4 that I put into an external case a...

Re: Dead cpu?

Corporations rule the world. Take it or leave it is the new normal :(

You could hire a lawyer and fight it but for a couple hundred bucks, it just isnt worth it.

I would take the money and then look very hard at AMD!

Re: Gone Viral?

I should get the $1200, what I don't qualify for is the forced 2 weeks full pay by employer for not being able to work or the modified FMLA that kicks in after that 2 weeks. If I choose not to work I have to use PTO. Ahhh, gotcha. Yea the wife has to use her PTO if she takes off or even now that th...

Re: Free GPS Tracker for Android Phone

ATT has the Secure Family thing. I imagine most of the others have similar availability because it is something they can charge you for. Most apps I believe are pay to use also. As for the tracfone stuff, I have no clue as I have never used one of those pay-as-you-need ones.

Re: Gone Viral?

Me too. Have my "papers" so I can get to work. Since my work is considered "essential" we don't qualify for that reimbursement from the government. We build and support heavy equipment for local, state, and federal divisions like State D.O.T.'s and Army Corps of Engineers. So we stay open to suppor...

Re: New Build?

Built in graphics are way better than they used to be but still short of a dedicated card. It should be able to play at 1080p if you lower graphics settings....mostly. I don't think you could buy the new Doom game and play it at 1080p (maybe but I think the settings would have to be at the lowest po...

Hell the wife has to carry ...

Re: New Build?

gpu - anything will do what you want. I think a gtx 1660 will do 4k video editing also but if you want a lot of it done then I would go as as much as you can afford and stick with nvidia because of Cuda! Amazing how much uses Cuda. PSU will depend on what cpu and gpu you want ;) Mem - unless overclo...

Yea the governor told every non-essential business to shut down here in Pennsylvania and then changed to all non-life sustaining business to close. People don't care.
