    Ancient Software, how to back up?

    The only thing I have been able to create is a combination cue & bin files. Then I end up with a new problem, I probably don't know the right way to convert them to iso after trying several products.

    Ancient Software, how to back up?

    NG on isobuster, will try power iso P.S. The copied files are not recognized by the program, so an iso is needed. There are five disks in the set.

    Ancient Software, how to back up?

    I have some ancient language training CDs that I am trying to figure out how to back up. Some sort of copy protection make copies fail. I would like to back up on USB so I don't lose them. I even had to dig through the junk pile to find a cd/dvd player. Anyone have memories of the old days and...

    Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows: Lifetime License $49.99

    I had an Office 2016 license go bad. Bought it from a seller on the H about 3 or 4 years ago. For the price I paid that was OK. The problem was I got no notice and had to quick download Libre office to work with my docs. I am going to buy another one from the same seller.

    For laughs, found an OLD one

    Tested without software in a spare pc and it is still noticeably faster than a SATA 3 7200rpm spinny.

    Where do I find a 17 or 19 inch display?

    I have to find a good 17 to 19 inch display. Does not need to be 2 or 4K. I can't find anything but left over scrap on ebay. Anyone selling new ones that are worth getting? Why a small display? I am married and that is what she wants.

    Cloning with external dock problems?

    I understand that cloning a HD/SSD in an external dock can result in the drive being seen as a removeable drive under some circumstances. I believe this happened to me but an upgrade in place install from 10 to 11 seems to have cleared it. Anyone else see the problem previously?

    For laughs, found an OLD one

    Digging through junk drawers and found an SSD I pulled from a "gaming laptop" and forgot. I don't ever remember SSD SATA 2 drives. It still works.

    Need some advice for a new monitor

    Thanks, not sure if you have been married or for how long, but her reasons are because that is what she wants. I have learned to say "yes dear". If it turns out wrong she always admits it and says can we try again.

    The IPS seems like a must, you are right. I am sure she wants nothing larger than a 19 to 23 inch max.

    Need some advice for a new monitor

    I have to get a new monitor for my wife. She says the 27in. monitor I gave her is too big, the only smaller I have is 14in. She is not a gamer but needs a good quality monitor for 2D production work. Her rig is an X570, 3600XT, 4 gig 5600 GPU. I would use a small 4K TV, or a monitor but any...

    Old timey case question.

    Thank you to everyone. I am thinking I can get away with air cooling. I will be running an x570 3800X, 3070, and SSDs, except when testing spinnies but they will not be a permanent part of the installation.

    Old timey case question.

    I have a need to run a Blue Ray drive, and easy testing of spinnys. Just bought an old Thermaltake Level 10 GT. I won't be OCing anything but wonder if anyone ever fit an AIO in one?

    Need some AM4 upgrade options

    I am getting different input on the 5800X but your point is a good one. I won't make use of a 5950X but if it stops the itching it will be worth it when the price drops or if the 5800X3D is priced right and available...ha.....that could work too.

    Need some AM4 upgrade options

    Looking at the prices I think you are right. As soon as I can grab a 5800X for $250.00 or less I will jump on it. Should be a decent bump and let me lurk the WTS threads until I see a 5950X in a few months.

    Where to get laptop vid cards?

    I don't know for sure but since it has a 1070 it might. We don't want to deal with an external GPU. I could just build her a desktop.

    Where to get laptop vid cards?

    You are so right. It can actually be almost a better deal to just buy a slightly outdated laptop instead of an upgrade card. Dell has also been know to put whitelists in their bios and hacked bios to allow a card can lead to even more problems.

    Need some AM4 upgrade options

    My real "use case" is the itch, itch, itch, to upgrade. Anyone will to S.W.A.G. when I might see some used units on the H? I am thinking about going 5800X due to budget and I can still get some cash back by moving the 3800X to my wife and selling her 3600XT.

    Need some AM4 upgrade options

    My wife has an X570 with a 3600xt used for production work. I have an X570 with a 3800X used for some gaming and production work. There is no TRUE need to upgrade, just the itch but modified by budget. I was thinking that if the 5800 refresh comes out maybe some 5950X chips would become...

    I have a problem dealing with Ebay. Are they actually backing up their sales if you get a bad unit or it doesn't show up?

    Where to get laptop vid cards?

    A friend of mine has an Alienware laptop with a discrete 1070 in it and would like to upgrade at least to a 1080/1080Ti but I can't find a price that doesn't just mean "Might as well buy a new laptop". Anyone have any idea where cards can be sourced at a slightly more reasonable price?

    Screwed by EVGA

    Finally got a 3070. They started sending notices and when I tried to get the card they would say out of stock. After several go rounds with customer support they finally sent me a personalized notice and I was able to pick up a 3070 for $715.00.

    Dummy PSU queston

    I appreciate the help. I made a mistake even knowing I was doing it wrong and panicked. I put the board together with all wiring but no CPU and flipped the switch. Of course it wouldn't start, just a single flash of the bios flashing light that would flash steady if you were trying to do a USB...

    Dummy PSU queston

    Thanks, I think you said they are the same. Looks like I should go for the 4+4. Hope I haven't let any smoke out yet. Aourus X570 elite. Appears to have only one 8 pin female on the MB. So not a real high end board.

    Dummy PSU queston

    I have an OLD Rosewill Bronze 1000. I was going to connect the power to the MB on an X570 and see I have both a 4+4 for the MB and a plain 8 pin cable. They both fit, are they the same? Have not built a PC in five years and going slowly. Will an X570 power on without a CPU or mem?
