Re: One of my past Cars!

Re: New Tool!

Trips down memory lane :)

I honestly have 2 brand new psu's in my closet right now because of how often PSU's were dying on me. I think they are 550 and 650 watt. Pretty soon will have to use them both in one system because of the video cards wanting their own power station :lol:

Re: New Tool!

I got one years ago and it has come in handy quite a bit! Mine looks almost exactly like yours, except no lcd. I wish it had a digital readout but the lights light up and tell me at least some of what I need :)

Re: PC market down But AMD gains anyway!

Cryptominers screwed the gamers for profit! :evil: AMDs platform(AM4) has ruled since you can use most boards with a much newer CPU! That's why I went with the X570 board for future upgrades! Hoping that comes soon! Also hoping the new AM5 will bring AM4 prices down! One of the wife's puters bit th...

Re: PC market down But AMD gains anyway!

I like the part... Nvidia also announced that it had drastically underperformed its guide by $1.4 billion due to slumping gaming GPU sales, and its partners expect up to a 50% decline in GPU shipments this year. It's hard to gauge how much of that volume was actually destined for gaming PCs as oppos...

Re: MSI's New Board is coming!

I guess they have upped the prices because the BYO community has gotten a lot smaller in recent years and they have to keep those profit margins up.

Be nice to be able to build a system for cheaper than you could buy it again!!!!

Re: MSI's New Board is coming!

I keep watching the 5950X cpu come down in price. Down to $500!!! Damn money tree is being a pain though lol As for the expense of the board - yea, I imagine everything coming out in the near future will be higher than normal. Even lego is raising prices across the board it seems, even their prices ...

Just remember the plasma will use a LOT more electricity ;)

Everything is throw away now a days, it's sad. It costs more to fix something than buying a new one.

Reflector falling off? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLwHWLHT4T4 Or if your wife is looking - Oh man I am so sorry but that means the tv is going to go out very soon and you should probably replace it now with something a bit bigger because the bigger tv's don't usually have as many problems.......

Nice! They say about the MS account being required but that was in Windows 10 also, or at least it is now. I just reinstalled 2 laptops with windows 10 and both needed a MS account to sign in and then you can change to local account afterwards. Although Microsoft still hasn't fixed the user director...
