    Do the "funny shapes" on modular power supply cables match up with voltages, etc?

    ^^^ Modular psu cable compatibility chart or something All I can say is pay close attention to this. I've blown two good power supplies by just using cables that were laying around without checking properly

    Destiny 2

    Picked up WQ deluxe edition. Wish they would put a LFG finder in game too. Dumbasses like me start an activity thinking there might be matchmaking but turns out I'm alone and can't even get past the first mobs I'm power level 1570 on a titan grinding activities like crucible, Vanguard's and...

    xbox series x controller disconnecting from bluetooth on win 11 during gaming

    Seems to work okay here. I have my BT dongle plugged into a usb port on my keyboard and I think it's because it works best there. It's a shite no name one too from Amazon.

    Is Linux Ready for Prime Time?

    Weren't you already running Linux? Could've sworn I saw posts from you asking how to install so and so through apt. I assume you've used it all this time ? If so, do you think it's ready for primetime?

    Installing Windows today, Win 10 or 11?

    Pretty sure I had both mine and my wife's machine say something like "windows 11 has been downloaded and is ready to install, click here to install" but hey I don't want to open up that discussion here.

    Installing Windows today, Win 10 or 11?

    If you install 10, won't you be nagged to death to install 11 and eventually have it upgrade on its own ?

    Insane GPU prices in 2022 WTF?

    You guys don't have to worry about me buying current gen parts! I'm too poor! I always buy previous gen stuff, like this TUF 3080 I just picked up for 580 off Facebook marketplace. It has all the power I'm ever going to need for the next while.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    Robert Hallock to Leave AMD After 12 Years

    I remember this guy, he was on forums but wasn't affiliated with AMD. It was around the time when the Ashes of the singularity benchmark came out and when Async compute became a buzzword. He was all about Async compute

    32 vs 64 GB of memory for gaming

    I fired up watchdogs2 when it came on Xbox pass on a machine with 8gb of ram and despite getting warnings about the framerate being unstable, the game was pretty playable Ubisofts client is crazy bad though so I wouldn't be surprised if it was that gobbling up more ram than necessary

    Is a high refresh rated monitor worth it if I cannot get more than 45fps in a favorite game?

    Yes that's a mistake. Your monitors refresh rate (in Hz, not MHz) is independent of the actual framerate being displayed. Your monitors refresh rate is a maximum value. What is actually rendering frames is your graphics card. So to answer your question, no a monitor with a higher refresh...

    Do people actually upgrade just the CPU and keep using existing motherboard?

    Usually I give them to my gf, or if I have enough parts already to justify another build, ill build another build. Or else I sell them.

    And they still wonder why linux isn't more popular.

    By that standard, windows must be absolute shit Office, a very useful piece of software for some, has been a target for malware for like 20 years. Quite plainly, the point I was trying to make was about upgrading your software and how package managers make that simple. You're talking about...

    And they still wonder why linux isn't more popular.

    All software can have bugs or vulnerabilities, good and bad. This is basic knowledge. If you prefer to babysit loose binaries and system upgrades, that's good for you. I have more important things to do so I run one magic command that upgrades the majority of packages I have on my system and...

    And they still wonder why linux isn't more popular.

    I don't understand what you're saying. I didn't say anything about bad software. It actually happened to a friend, he installed some flavour of the week RDP program and forgot about it. Months later he saw Bitcoin transactions he didn't recognize, logins to his online banking he didn't do...

    Do people actually upgrade just the CPU and keep using existing motherboard?

    Been about 4 years that I've been on this board and I've gone through a 1700x, 2700x, 5800x. No point in switching out a board that's working fine and has all the features you need. Literally adds nothing to your experience lol

    Rumor: Google Stadia May Be Getting Shut Down

    I find the streaming services to be good enough for kids and old people. Most don't know any better. I think the competition killed off Stadia. Once the other well established names got their subscription and streaming services up and running, there was no reason to go out and get Stadia if...

    Finding work?

    Your About me section might need a little more work. I'd really expand on who you are, even personally. Why do you like to program? Really sell what makes you a good programmer / developer. Try to make connections with people in the industry or already in jobs at places where you'd like to work.

    Are all software platforms going to cloud?

    Facebook has a gazillion servers cause they're facebook, in addition to being on the cloud, they're one of Amazon's biggest customers. Also, as per usual this car analogy is flawed as well. Owning vs leasing a car is nothing like owning servers/datacenters vs using a cloud service. With the...

    Server build for work

    Azure boasts being cheaper than AWS with their Azure SQL database so would be worth looking into 32GB was an example. What you save upfront by building and supporting some welfare servers, you'll pay for (probably more) in the long term

    Server build for work

    With that budget I'd opt for something like RDS on AWS. 8 core, 32 GB instance is about 400$/month when used for 8 hours a day Forget hardware and software provisioning, support and maintenance. just live your life
