    So, 6800 from 1080 a worthy upgrade?

    5600X actually, with 16 gigs of RAM and a EVO NVMe drive, so the rest isn't bad. I'm still shopping honestly.

    So, 6800 from 1080 a worthy upgrade?

    I just have a 4k Samsung TV as primary and a Dell 27"as secondary running at 19x12 resolution. Pretty sure the TV just has a 60 refresh. Sorry, on my phone...

    So, 6800 from 1080 a worthy upgrade?

    Gotta use Amazon gift cards, yay Christmas, but I have a 1080 now. Trying to keep it under $500 too, as I don't want to add too much of my own $ into it. It looks like I could get this:

    NAS for Business backups?

    Yes, but I want a box I don't have to build... One might almost consider me lazy in this, and I just saw that Veeam certifies QNAP NAS with their product which leads me to do that... NOT because I am not already building a home grown box at home using Zorin Linux on a gaming PC to also be a...

    NAS for Business backups?

    I'm working at a place with a bunch of offices scattered around, and with 15-50 people at remote offices. I'm trying to set up a local VEEAM repository at each location for their desktops/laptops and I need a good solid decently fast NAS or such for on site storage. I don't need the 10GB, as...

    What do I do with a E5-2687W Processor?

    Well, I ended up in a meeting that morning, and couldn't get out of it in time to snag the proc. On the other hand, I'm feeling a little more secure in my job... so eh, right now, that works for me.

    What do I do with a E5-2687W Processor?

    It sounds more and more like it is too much to bother with, which is a shame as I was hoping a 8 core cpu for free would be worth it...

    What do I do with a E5-2687W Processor?

    I was given the opportunity to raid a Dell T630 but I cannot take the entire box. It only has 64 gig ram and 1 TB of HD space, and while I might swipe the perc, it is basically useless except on a similar motherboard... BUT the CPU could be useful on other motherboards, if I can find one...

    Man Spends a Week Inside VR

    It wasn't as if he was "jacked in". He isn't Dodger, the technology isn't there yet, and this entire topic seems lame. At best.

    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    I'll make it very simple and clear: Captain Marvel is really worth a watch. It's just entertaining and visually impressive, exactly what it was meant to be. Just keep this in mind that it's an origin story so don't go looking for an overstuffed complex story. It's just a fun action movie that...

    NVIDIA and AMD Are Shipping Fewer GPUs as Retailers Sit on Inventory

    I just upgraded my PC after 8 years, went from a 2600k intel i7 to a 2600 AMD... bought a new MB, a new set of RAM, and the CPU, even bought new storage... I did NOT buy a new video card. Hint Hint, NVidia, AMD...

    ASUS Maximus XI Apex Motherboard Broken Down

    Just from experience and listening to other people irl, as long as the ASUS MB works, it'll work great and you'll be happy with it, but let's just say that i wouldn't want to go down the support rabbit hole for another ASUS product. Let me know when that is fixed, and I'll consider them again...

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Get my WoW running well on Linux, preferably a redhat-based distro due to the privacy issues with anything based on Debian, and I'll give it a solid shot. In the meantime, I am on 10, which is about the worst privacy-rated OS there is, if not THE worst. Yay for Tor browser, VPNs, and other...

    San Francisco Passes Proposition C Also Known as the "Homeless Tax"

    After getting into a smaller and yet similar discussion on Facebook a few days ago, I have also left it, and decided that most of this is silly stuff... "I got my stuff, to heck with anyone else" still seems to be in here tho... Someday, after we lose all of our jobs to Ais and robots, or we...

    Warranty Void if Removed Stickers are BS

    I wonder if that works for tractors, too, as they are basically all computerized nowadays. Have any of you seen the new tractors? Geesh, they out do my home pc.

    Bias - BS - Lies - News - Social Media worked great... but wow what a longish article... and now I guess it might be time to read the thing a little. Quick edit: Page 43 really shows the whole thing off, and clarifies the entire thing for the US imho. It is very clear and true. I always prefer facts over bias, which...

    Experimental Flu Drug Could Kill the Virus in One Day

    Yeah, or people stop dying of it... ~2500 deaths due to flu related symptoms just in North Texas alone in the last 4 months, from body builders to 12 year olds who tested negative, but who actually had it. Zombies, the creation of time travelers to go back and stop it so we can keep...

    Samsung Patent Hints at Modular All-in-One Desktop PC

    Only way this would be better or new would be if they included a new type of bus which is faster than the latest PCIE or such so things can actually communicate better than they already do. Somehow I doubt that such a method was included in this "design" patent. Then again, Apple has made...

    Companies Are Using Facebook to Exclude Older Workers from Job Ads

    And it IS blatantly unlawful.... but then so is so much these corporations are doing nowadays, until they can get big enough to change the law itself, which a lot of them are already doing... I guess what I'm saying is that just because it may be lawful over time, that doesn't make it RIGHT.

    FCC Plans December Vote to Kill Net Neutrality Rules

    I agree with Wyodiver. It is obvious that paying more for medical care, internet access, and giving tax cuts to the top 1% is the best way to go, even at the expense of everyone else on this forum..It is obvious. I am also a firm believer in our constitution and all of the amendments...

    Logitech Will Deliberately Brick Harmony Link Devices Next Year

    Encryption Showdown? FBI Can’t Get into Texas Church Shooter’s Phone

    I am definitely more pro-privacy than a few of you on here, but then I used to be MI, and I have a few ideas and thoughts on the matter formed over years of distrusting those people I was in the government armed forces with me. I have spoken before on the quality of people I was in the MI with...

    Encryption Showdown? FBI Can’t Get into Texas Church Shooter’s Phone

    Encryption really isn't the problem here. How he managed to get access to the weapons he had were the issue. Besides, I think most of us here realize that in time, it'll be cracked and such anyway, as they have always been, and they find some small tidbit they didn't have before, but likely...

    Razer Doubles Down on eGPU Tech with Core V2

    Either way, that is a serious blow to one's pocketbook. $500 just to use a video card. I mean, it is a nice feature, but then you still have to buy the card, too. Well over $1000 after tax for a 1080 or such. Count me still VERY safely in the desktop camp...

    Man Prosecuted for Posting a Picture of His Hobby on Facebook

    I'm a bit of a so called "liberal" who is ex-military, and I see nothing wrong with posing with airsoft guns. This just sounds like someone trying to control another for no good reason. They can take their control of others and shove it. An it harm none, do what ye will, for goodness sakes.
