    The Rise of Retrocomputing

    My IBM P70 Luggable has been steadily going up in value. Especially since it has a drop in 486 upgrade, math coprocessor, and the max on 8mb of ram, and a rare for its time 10/100 MCA Network card. The floppy died in it, so I upgraded it to a 2.88mb drive. I still have the original 386-20 that...

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Likely repairable. Caps are cheap and pretty easy to replace. Used to do it all the time.

    Walmart is selling Gateway PCs and no the year is not 1999

    Oh, I'm sure my older PC's got more true gaming use. I miss my Quantum3D Raven and 300A Celery. This 2080Ti gets more use on youtube then games lately.

    Did someone steal/hack

    It's a capture of a 2016 page and has random Russian Links strewn through it. I'm betting not intentional? Maybe we should find a way to change this then? Says that's the home page.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Redid my 25w Bench. During this bench it was throwing over wattage alerts throughout the write phase. Then did 75w. No Alert anymore. Which gave me a minor Read speed improvement, but seems to done a touch of damage to my write speeds. Super pleased with this purchase though. Might get me...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Mine hangs out at 47 idle 53 loaded copying the raid over to it. Pretty reasonable. It's directly above my video card too. I do have a lot of fans in my case though.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Might be? It's hamstrung by two different controllers and SATA2 and 3 ports mixed. I had just gotten a shit ton of those Edge SSDs from work when they were retired. So I slapped in as many as the board would hold and used windows software raid. It's honestly been pretty worry free ever since it...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Yeah, I got it because one of the 5 drives in my array are shitting out. Went from 72% health to 1% in one day. Still works, but I get the random hiccup.

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    So anyone actually excited for this? Aside from the EGS pissing and moaning. MW2 was one of the first games I got REALLY into, and followed the series all the way to... well now. Still play MWO. I just hope it has a legit single player campaign.

    Look at this $1900 monster...

    Vega doesn't flex his Epeen. Everyone here knows Vegas Epeen is huge. He regularly ruins monitors to see if he can get rid of the matte coatings on them. Just for that 1% more of image quality.

    Need a modern replacement for a slim line Antec MT-352 It appears to have the same mounting as a 2U unit. This guy is modular and offers a fair bit more wattage. I would worry about fan noise, but thats your call.
