    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I wish I could reach a place where I could enjoy those games from my childhood. Everytime I try playing a JRPG from the 16 bit era, something in my adult brain tells me "No". :( Have fun!

    WTB: '95-'04 Toyota Avalon. $150 finder's fee.

    Damn, you really did an impressive job. I just texted the 3rd person now and seeing if they will lower the price to fit my budget. This list took some time to create and all the listings have the bench seat. Let me buy you lunch for that! Sending a PM.

    Can anybody get me up to speed on the state of the CPU game right now?

    No worries, I got you. It's called AM4. For a PC enthusiast such as you, there's 2 AM4 chipsets you need to know: B series and X series. B series are for gamers/performance. X series is for overclocking the CPU and Xfire. Unless you plan on heavy overclocking, then B series is enough. B350 was...

    WTB: '95-'04 Toyota Avalon. $150 finder's fee.

    So so close. I would have actually attempted to purchase this if it was a hard top. Absolutely no soft shell convertibles. Low mileage, clean, and under budget. Damn, seeing this one is painful. But thank you, really appreciate you trying.

    WTB: '95-'04 Toyota Avalon. $150 finder's fee.

    Kwaz, that's why there is a finder's fee. I can find the car with bench seats from a dealer fairly easy with a site like Autotrader. But I would like to purchase one from a private seller. It's not a needle in the haystack, but it takes time to locate one.

    Can anybody get me up to speed on the state of the CPU game right now?

    The game has changed, once Intel was completely dominant but AMD is roaring back ever since they released Zen. In a nutshell: AMD best value and bang for the buck. Intel best peak IPC and platform. 1) No. 2) Now is a good time. RAM is cheap, SSD costs have come down, CPU sockets have great...

    Samir, the link you sent only has one photo. I can't tell if it has the front bench seat. Also, try shortening your URLs with the hyperlink function like this. Sheesh man :ROFLMAO:

    WTB: '95-'04 Toyota Avalon. $150 finder's fee.

    Oh man, that might be something I can actually buy if it's still available! How do I contact this seller? Sending a PM! Thanks for the tips! This car matches my criteria but the seats and rust in the engine bay tell me it's been sitting outside and unused for a long time. Might be something...

    Asrock B450M PRO4 boot loop

    That'd be my first guess. What's the RAM make/model? He doesn't list it. These Ryzen boards can be picky with RAM.

    Have you checked out a Latitude E6540 with Radeon dGPU? They often sell for $200 or below and can the LGA processor can be upgraded to a quad core. This E6540 is selling for $200 or Best Offer.

    6700k wont go over 4.4Ghz?!

    That's just barely below normal. Most of the Skylake chips max out at 4.5GHz-4.6Ghz.

    Building a new rig, looking for suggestions

    I think you're right. If budget allows, then the 3600 should be chosen over the 2600. However if the user is on a budget, the 2600 is by no means a bad choice. It's only 10% slower at 1080p on average, but a cost savings of $60.

    Which of these motherboard should i buy?

    They are essentially the same motherboard, down to the number of internal I/O connectors and external ports. The B450 is just a newer revision. Spec Comparison Some would say the X370 has better/more VRMs, but looking at the photos the B450 has 7 VRMs, and the X370 only has 6. Both are from...

    Building a new rig, looking for suggestions

    Yes, the 2700 is pretty much the same CPU as the 2600 except with 2 extra cores for $15 more with this deal and the promo code. How much of a bump are we talking though? It might be the better CPU but it's $60 more, if the performance bump is only 12-18% greater the 2600 is clearly the best...

    HOT! Ryzen 7 2700 8 Core Processor $135 @ Newegg

    Says Blitz deal subscribers only. I don't know if that's paid or free to subscribe, but this is a hot deal. Normally sells for $180, but it's discounted to $150. If you use code EMCDEGD22 at checkout, you save an additional $15. Link...

    Building a new rig, looking for suggestions

    There is a Newegg promotion going on right now. Ryzen 7 2700 Processor with 8 Cores for just $135 with code EMCDGED22. This is a killer deal, you get 2 extra CPU cores for $15 extra. I'd jump all over that.

    Building a new rig, looking for suggestions

    Actually very good for not having built a system in over a decade (y). All the parts you selected are compatible and would work fine. But you can actually do a lot better for yourself performance wise and costing less. First, the Ryzen 5 2600 comes with a Wraith Stealth cooler, so purchasing an...

    Which of these motherboard should i buy?

    The problem is those motherboards may need a BIOS update to boot a Ryzen 3000 series CPU. For OOTB compatibility with Ryzen 3000 it should be X570, B450 Plus or Max, or have the "Ryzen 3000 Ready" sticker. The AX370 appears to be Ryzen 3000 Ready, but I don't see the B450 Ready sticker.

    Warcraft 3 Reforged

    I'm not going to use Battlenet just for one game. I just ordered Warcraft III Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne on eBay so I can have a permanent Battlnet-less version. The original is good enough for me. I'm also going to purchase Warcraft I and II on GoG.

    New Build, Ryzen + nVidia SFF

    While I don't have that exact setup myself, this person on Reddit built a 9900K, 2080 system in the Ncase M1. His GPU temps were around 73-74 while gaming. Assuming you choose a 2080 Super with a quality cooler, the temps would only be 5-6° hotter, so maybe 79-80°C tops. That's about the same...

    Dead Motherboard? Or something else?

    It's either the PSU or the motherboard. First thing you do is make sure your PSU 24-pin and 4/8-pin connectors are fully inserted until the latch clicks. Flip the PSU rocker switch to "|" for on. Your motherboard should have a standby LED for the 5V rail. Can you check and see if the standby...

    Micro ATX case suggestions wanted

    You're right. The "C" is significant, but I thought it was the same case with or without. My mistake. The Define Mini C is for sale ($75), as well as the new Meshify line.
