wow NattyKathy you had a bunch.
I might've forgotten 1 or 2.
2.4 ghz p4
3.06ghz 333FSB p4
E8400 wolfdale E0 (1 of the premier gaming dual cores for a few years)
i5-3550 (long live ivy bridge, lol) - z77 not really having nvme and certain other features is a big part of why I'll be upgrading...
We should sell our 970's while they're still worth a decent amount. If the value goes too low, I'll just give a GPU to a relative, which would be a bit of a waste if they don't game. oh well. It stinks that we have to spend about $200 to get a card that uses less power but no better performance...
These boneheads don't realize that if phone financing is like cars then the $1000 phone is gonna be more like $1200 or so over time.
I'd rather buy a brand new modern phone for $150-250 once every couple years. I don't even do that.
I get a $100-150 Samsung that uses the Tracfone service & spend...
I'm thinking about selling my Dual fan 970 while it can still fetch $150+. What say you?
Putting in another $150-200 for a 1070/Ti would be nice.
Bought it a year or so ago for $165. Not gaming alot right now so I could sell & go without a GPU for a while to wait for a good price.
Good to know. I'm used to 1TB HDD's.
Update: I bought 2 of the 250GB MX500's at $50 & $55 for relatives, and the 1TB for $165 since it's almost exactly 1/2 the price of the 2TB sale price.
I don't need more than 1TB right now to spend an extra $85+.
Edit: Dibs, please. $350 is great, it's been about a year since I sold my 2nd gen handmedown 16GB ipad.
Got to go to work now but, I'll check in around lunch time or right after work.
PM sent also. Thanks.
I bought the $25 gift card for $5 credit to account.
Also purchased the $55 + tax 250GB MX500. Somebody will enjoy it.
The 2TB is a great price @ $319+tax but I don't feel like spending that much.
Probably will be rare when 2TB ssd's are under $300 or 1TB for under $180.
Darn it. $185 ain't bad but $155 or $140 would be awesome. I would've bought 2.
That 2TB MX500 is about $180 cheaper than the Samsung or $130 under the Sandisk. :jawdrop::wideyed:
$55 at checkout for the 250GB MX500 if...
Honey Badger DGAF. My max is probably $400 but I don't currently game much since I'm working alot.
I was a broke-ass student so got a used GTX 660 for $60.
Used GTX 970 was $140. Padre spent $380 on a 6800 GT back in the day when work was aplenty. Not sure how much my 5950 Ultra was. :eek::LOL...
It only might be cheaper for those who use Uber or such a few times a month then don't go anywhere, hmm. Obviously my $4,000 payed-off truck getting 20MPG sure is cheaper than taking a "cab" to work, for example. Someday I'll get a work vehicle that gets better mileage, but that's just a...
Campaign only kinda sucks. For example Nfs The Run & new Hot Pursuit. Fun though.
2002's hot pursuit 2 has a great "arcade" deal where most of the game is just racing laps.
Having the Mclaren F1 & F1 LM was badass also. "Free ride" in these new games isn't quite the same. Much fun though.
All of these I've had go through a single main PC.
Nv FX 5200 around 2003
Nv FX 5600 or 5700
Nv FX 5950 Ultra 256 MB
Nv BFG 6800 GT agp
Nv 7800 GS agp - free
Nv 8800 GTS 512
Nv 9800 GTX 512MB
Nv pny GTX 260 192 shader, 65nm - $160
Nv msi GTX 460 - $40 LOL, didnt use long
Nv evga GTX 660 2GB -...
I concur. They could do more with more. I'm glad Amazon Prime & Netflix are not $30/mo. Well, I do send $60+/mo to Amazon. I just get products for that $$.
No commercials on all these shows is great.
I missed that you mentioned Longmire also. 4am will do that to me. I think season 6 will be on...
I had a good experience lately. Went from XP 32bit to Win 7 Pro 64 bit for $10 thanks to Ion. Awesome. Used a Sandisk flash drive rather than a disc. Less than 30 min, not counting the updates now.
It'll take time to reinstall some stuff but that's no big deal.
I remember the 5850 was pretty good value also. Those 5000 series were good competition.
good Bang for buck is a gtx 260 for $65 or gtx 460 for $35. lol, perhaps i wait a long time to upgrade. gtx 660 for $60 coming up.
I''m not surpirised. Did noah use that gpu also? ahah.
No diss, I think its cool to watch so many tech items come out. Im just in my twenties.
I started with an Fx 5200 in the days of dial-up, Fawk!
jumped to the Fx 5950 Ultra which played UT2004 and similar pretty good. "M-m-ma-ma-Monstrr...
Some older cards worked pretty good for years and years. I put a 6800 gt in a relative's pc still used.
That's cool you have those neat old cards. I like the 7950 gx2 i got for free, lol.
it's fun to get nostalgic, huh.... says this under 30-yr old. :eek:
I had dialup for a while also. Kept me...
