    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    I wasn't a big fan. The turn based version that they said was going to be in the game was just disappointing to me. I liked the live combat just fine, the biggest problem is that it made it feel like a current generation Final Fantasy game more than a remake. If I would have known that the idea...

    How can I install a graphics card into my system, and which to choose?

    I've seen articles about both from companies like Zotac, but I have never seen them available for sale anywhere. I don't even know if they ended up releasing either.

    How can I install a graphics card into my system, and which to choose?

    I've done builds in similar systems. You run into 2 issues. 1 - You need a low profile card that is also single slot. 2 - You should check to make sure that the PCI-E slot can provide the full 75w of power. I don't know about HP, but some Dell Optiplexes only offer 45-65w of power to the PCI-E...

    Interesting PDF on hardening Windows 7 after end of support

    Huh. That was actually a good read. A good resource to link to anyone who still wants to brave using it.

    How to turn OFF auto updates Win 10 Pro?

    Just wanted to clear this up: that message means you (the user) cannot update the computer. Windows will still update, this just means your are blocking yourself from initiating those updates.

    MicroProse is back!

    The original was very hard but not frustrating. The new ones are very frustrating but not hard.

    Old Guy Switching to Linux

    I used Mint when it first released Cinnamon as a DE and really loved it. I wanted to keep using it but the more I did the more problems came up. I never had them on the Mate version though so I used that for a while before Gnome 3.

    G-sync On vs. Off in FPS games? (my observation).

    0 lag. Why would it?

    I think you are getting bits and memory mixed up. Any flash drive above 8gb will be fine.

    Distro Confusion

    Try some out. I highly suggest making a good backup of your computer and just diving in. You can do some basic testing just using a USB drive and running a live session, but you will really get a feel for a distro by installing and using it. Personally I LOVE Pop_Os. They have gone through and...

    Old Guy Switching to Linux

    You don't need to install it, just run it live from a USB thumb drive. Especially if you are wanting to just test it out. I suggest Linux Mint or Ubuntu 20.04. Ubuntu just released 20.04 yesterday and its really good. AMD is fine, both on the CPU and GPU end.

    Pop_OS! 20.04 releasing soon. Loving the beta so far.

    18.04 didn't play well with me so I have been using 19.10 for a while. I wanted to get on an LTS version so I jumped in the beta for 20.04 since Ubunbtu 20.04 is being released today. So far I love it, its been every bit as solid as 19.10 for me. Good stuff, I highly recommend it. Especially if...

    Bump. Access point still available. I’d like to sell it today as I’m heading to the UPS store to ship another item and want to save a trip. Price dropped.
