    Wtb super Nintendo (the really old Nintendo)

    ^^ Maybe I'll buy a cheap one to gamble on and then go from there with repairs, but so far the two from ebay are being returned because they were $70~ a pop and the sellers said "tested / working", so I'm not really willing to try repairing those myself if you know what I mean, I messaged them...

    Wtb super Nintendo (the really old Nintendo)

    Apparently the snes jr isn't equipped to output RGB. I already bought "HD Retrovision" component cables AND a retrotink for the early models I bought. I see a mod chip for the jr. that I'm equipped to install, but this all comes out to a bit more money then I had on offer lol. I didn't really do...

    Wtb super Nintendo (the really old Nintendo)

    No emulation guys, thanks. This is for a streaming/youtubing thing and all about authentic hardware.. there's zillions of them on eBay, just had some bad luck. I'll keep browsing there.

    Wtb super Nintendo (the really old Nintendo)

    I need a Super Nintendo (the old cartridge based console from the 90s).. the kids are going hard on the retro gaming and so far I've tried two bundles from eBay now, one wouldn't work at all and the other completely freaked out on 3d looking "mode 7" games like Zelda and Mario kart. I got the...

    Nvidia asking US gov to exempt GPUs from tariffs

    I'll grant them that the point of tariffs are to inflate prices of foreign products to entice buyers to shop domestic, meanwhile we still have zilch in the US. However, I 100% agree that Nvidia will just pocket the difference. a 25% tariff and supposed shortages wouldn't cause revenue to...

    Sony working on subscription retro service

    Kind of off the rails but.. I've been content with ps2 compatibility on pcsx2 for over a decade now. there are literally only 10-30 games that aren't playable from start to finish as far as I can tell.. most of the bugs are caused by hardware rendering...

    So after 5 years, my 980TI is dying. What should I do to avoid a 1K card purchase?

    Shot in the dark but it could be a corrupted vbios. Re-flashing the bios fixed a similar issue on my gtx 770 sc. Download the bios for the card from techpowerup and flash it with nvflash, then try installing a driver again. Worst case you screw up and brick the card, best case it comes right...

    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    I loved source too. As far as I recall, competitive players stuck to 1.6 for it's "better" gun mechanics (that require a bit more effort for mastery, supposedly) and "better" hitboxes. That created a bit of a stigma against CSS. I still fire up source to this day to hit some surf servers, 1.6...

    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    Condition-Zero was just CS "remastered" with some single player campaign stuff. It didn't go over well with the competitive player base (who stayed on 1.6 until like 2012...) .. it's probably sold in every bundle valve sells now

    WTB 1 stick 4GB DDR3L 1600 so-dimm for laptop..

    Need to upgrade my joke of a laptop a bit.. it's a HP 15-ac151dx with a single 4gb stick of DDR3 1600.. Windows 10 on it's own keeps the memory pretty much pegged, not to mention it's running in single channel which probably kills the igpu performance. Just need a single 4gb stick.. I guess I...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    AMD has bad GPU drivers just like Linux is hard to install cargo cult is a hell of a drug :P ...sometimes you just come across a game that likes to crash. I've had worse luck with nvidia over the years, but n=1 and all.

    Post your hard drive Power On hours!

    While this is nowhere near my oldest functional drive, I impressed by this one because it was my primary OS drive from early 2010 to 2015 when I finally bumped up to an SSD. Since 2015 it's been used as my drive for steam games. That's 11+ years of heavy use.. ...don't care if it dies, can...

    I guess I just don't remember arguments being as aggressive as they are today. I can go make a post about the latest sound blaster card on [insert any other tech forum] and somebody will quickly show up to suggest I pull my lip over my head and swallow for being so dumb as to still use an...

    Watched the whole thing through, very enjoyable. Man.. I was young in 02 lol! Nostalgia for some of the parts being discussed is high because of how enamored I felt for hardware in those days. I also don't remember everybody being so angry and fighting about their PC hardware views back then...
