    Recommended upgrade from Seasonic Gold 850w PSU?

    This thread reminded me that I have been using my current Seasonic-built 850W PSU for almost 13 years. Definitely grabbing a new PSU when I build my next system.

    Ratpadz XT

    Ugh, what the fuck?! Maaaaan I said goodbye to cloth mousepads in the 2000s, and never looked back. It's so weird that the young'uns are into them now. What was old is new again... unfortunately. Hahahahaha, same!

    Help me spend $1000 on speakers

    Well the Logitech Z-5500 had an MSRP of $400. It's a long-discontinued model, which is probably why they have quad-digit prices now. I myself have been using a Logitech Z-5300e system since around 2006. I paid about $135 for it (and had just missed a sale where it was $30 cheaper when I got it)...

    hey mice people, what's your take on Pointer Instruments $270 mouse?

    100% agree, this has been my experience in life as well. Yupz. Yyeeaahh man. Isn't that the damn truth. Oh well daaaaaang! Definitely would not have expected that either. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Are these gadgets GPUs or Graphics Cards?

    GPU doesn't stand for "GeForce Processing Unit," it stands for "Graphics Processing Unit." And these 3 comparisons don't make sense. An AMD APU is a combination CPU+GPU. And "iGPU" stands for "integrated GPU", which are the parts of Intel CPUs that are capable of handling basic video output...

    Are these gadgets GPUs or Graphics Cards?

    Well of course you are correct, the GPU is not the entire graphics card, just the main and most important component of the graphics card. If for example you look at the GeForce RTX 3090, the GPU would be the GA102 chip. Obviously there's other important components of the graphics card, such as...

    How come none of the mechanical keyboard last more than 3 year, what happens to 50M keystroke guarantee?

    Been using a Corsair K70 RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches since 2015. Hope it doesn't crap out on me any time soon. This is my first mechanical keyboard. It was a gift, so I didn't go out and buy it myself. I've been really pleased with it so far though. Logitech mice used to last...

    Titanfall 2 Ultimate Edition $2.99 on Steam

    I am familiar with this mini-client (I think it was called a "thin client"). I had to use it when I played SW Jedi: Fallen Order on Steam. At the time I also had full Origin installed (cuz of when I paid $5 for Titanfall 2 and $5 for another game, one of the Battlefields), and the mini version...

    Titanfall 2 Ultimate Edition $2.99 on Steam

    Aaaaahhhhh, of course, it's an EA game on Steam, so it still requires Origin. I keep forgetting about that shit. Especially when a few rare EA games on Steam like SW Squadrons do NOT require Origin. I fucking hate when a game is on Steam and still needs Ubisoft uPlay/Connect or EA Origin or...

    Titanfall 2 Ultimate Edition $2.99 on Steam

    I paid $5 for this on shitty-ass EA Origin some years ago. Already went through the campaign (which I did enjoy) back then. Wish I had waited for this cheaper Steam release instead.

    Microsoft will stop selling Windows 10 licenses in a few days

    I had an install of Win7 last me from Fall 2014 to Fall 2022. I've never used an OS install for that long. Technically it still exists, but I took the Win7 drive outta that PC when I switched the PC over to Linux and Win10.

    Microsoft will stop selling Windows 10 licenses in a few days

    I feel sorry for all of you guys, I use Windows 9 (which only a few select individuals are allowed to obtain and use), and it's the best operating system that mankind has ever made. It was so good that Microsoft chose not to release it, because it made them look competent, like they could...

    Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500 Quad PCI Sound Card Sealed NOS

    The only time I had a non-Creative-Labs sound card was when I had an Aureal Vortex 2. One of my favorite sound cards of all time. Gawd I loved that thing.

    Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won't let them return the cards

    GeForce GTX 980 TI and Radeon Fury X both also launched for $650 I believe. I think GeForce 6800 Ultra was $600? I know there's inflation and other causes, but I miss when flagships were around $400, like the Radeon 9700 Pro, which was like $400-$450. Shiat, I used to complain about that price...

    Problem typing with mouse

    When I use both of my feet my typing rate increases, but so does my typo rate. Is there something wrong with my keyboard? I dunno guyz, I'm starting to think my keyboard wasn't designed to be used with my toes. I also tried placing my mouse on my keyboard and typing like that, but it doesn't...

    Big problem since Firefox 106.1 (and confirmed on 106.2) on Windows 7. Not compatible anymore ?

    No problems with latest FF on Win7, but it does load and run faster for me in Linux and Win10 than in Win7. My Win7 Firefox install was almost 8 years old and had become unstable and was running like ass. I uninstalled it, did a fresh install about a month or two ago, been great since. Same...

    Uber to Use Location Data to Sell Targeted Ads

    Is Linux Ready for Prime Time?

    Earlier this year I switched from Win7 to Manjaro Linux on both my laptop and desktop (dual-booting with Win10 as secondary OS on both systems), and for the most part the experience has been wonderful. First I tried it out on my laptop for more than a few months, then in September I transitioned...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    All of this 100%. Too many products these days ship in their own retail packaging that clearly labels what the device is, inviting people to come steal it before you even take delivery of it. Not that the packaging matters, cuz people will steal packages even if they don't know what's inside...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    When I used my friend's system for about 11 days I had no issues with the fan at full blast. I've heard laptops with some annoying-ass fans, and the Steam Deck is nothing like that. Most games at half system volume would drown out the fan. To even hear it I had to go into a quiet room. My...

    Windows 12

    Aaaahhhh, very good to know, thanks for the info. Been using Win10 since launch (as well as continuing to use Win7) and this still hasn't happened yet. Win7 definitely does NOT feel clunkier than WIn10, quite the opposite. Getting used to Win10 and being familiar with it doesn't make it better...
