    Wife wants to play Diablo 4 but only has a HD 6850

    Not everyone can just drop 1k on a new system. 9/10 double your ram and pick up a new GPU is all you need to run whatever. If I have $300... I can, upgrade or I can buy a new cpu and GPU and look at them on my shelf.

    Wife wants to play Diablo 4 but only has a HD 6850

    Huh? That would be difficult. I've still got an AMD FX gaming system. This stuff all still works, upgrade options are more difficult and vary case by case. You don't need to replace everything, but things like the rx 6600 only running on pcie 8x introduces possibility of bottle neck on pcie3...

    Battlefield VII (In Development)

    How do we make ea aware of this. Those were the best bf games. 1 and v were ok, but they fumbled V a bit, then fell down the stairs with 2042

    Microsoft exploring options to power its datcenters using nuclear energy

    They are obviously for information only and not even connected to any station systems. But yes, it's still funny seeing a piece of equipment in a nuclear facility sitting there in bsod. I'm not certain because I don't have a need to know, but I'm pretty sure that the nuclear systems are all...

    Microsoft exploring options to power its datcenters using nuclear energy

    I work in a nuke plant, and they have 50" tvs all over showing plant news and power output status. Got quite a chuckle the first time I saw one in bsod.

    a Novice's attempt at diagnosing faulty batch Sapphire RX 570 4GB itx

    A path to ground aka a short, that should not be there. Most passives fail open. Transistors fail somewhere wacky. Most of the transistors are in the GPU.

    a Novice's attempt at diagnosing faulty batch Sapphire RX 570 4GB itx

    No expert, but 3.3v to ground short sounds like bad news. GPU chip failure maybe. Would have to see what is powered by the 3.3v and start fishing for the blown up thing

    Sound card vs. USB DAC

    I know this is old, but thought I'd add. Creative's whole business model is on maximizing sounds quality through cheap headsets and speakers. They have optimized their stuff for that, and it works. If you want better sound quality, buy better speakers and a better amp. By the time you start...

    Cases with single audio jack? But headphones have 2 jacks?

    Yes, gaming laptops have made this the norm. I like it. Replace 2 connectors with 1 and have complete backwards compatibility. No brainer.

    How to quiet down a portable AC unit in the PC room?

    Don't be afraid of cheaper chinese options; https://senville.com/ unless you legit need to actively cool this room while its -10 outside.... Then you're probably doing something illegal if you're asking questions here.

    U.S. issues warning to NVIDIA, urging to stop redesigning chips for China

    I'm not sure if I'm less concerned that the us is keeping all this technology for itself or not. Trying to at least. A growing part of me wants to just say fuck everything and live in the forest with a couple pigs and some chickens. Edit Actually pigs are ass holes, ducks.

    How to quiet down a portable AC unit in the PC room?

    No, you'll just add more heat to the room due to efficiency losses. You could drill a hole in the wall and vent it out that way, but those ac units are painfully inefficient. The mini split types are way better, if only a little more complicated to install It would actually get hotter.

    Is this fine older eletrical plugs in new house?

    Hire an inspector that specializes in electrical. Or hell just hire an electrician to give it a look and ask him if its safe. They know the codes, and the consequences. Fuses are still perfectly acceptable for new installs in my area. Just no one does because Breakers are WAAAYYYY Better...

    Is this fine older eletrical plugs in new house?

    Oddly enough this thought never crossed my mind (bigger concerns than a gaming PC, idk /s) but yes. Hire a knowledgeable inspector, who can actually walk in and look at the place. If it's good enough for general use, it's good enough for a PC. Buy a UPS, use surge protectors.

    Properly installed and maintained gas heat is really the best way to go. Most efficient and generally cheaper

    Usually no matter what it is you have to change something and control this. Central heating is usually a semi complex machine

    sTR5 torque spec

    Pound force inch... It's backwards because the guys that wrote this don't understand "metric", where everything is in Newton-meters (force - distance). It's inch pounds, or yes about 3 ugga-duggas, 4 if an umpa lumpa is singing in the background.

    How to quiet down a portable AC unit in the PC room?

    Theres all kinds of option for tube routing. I've since installed another one of these units with 3 indoor heads, two of which are in rooms on the other side of the house. You just need a sloped drain to get rid of the condensate, and your tubing and electrical can be up to 50 ft long. It can...
