    Any reason not to get a dell U3818DW?

    the war on bezels hasn't been won yet. I've had a 55" sony 4k for the past few years as my home office display. I've had an LG OLED in my online cart for costco since it went down to $1299. I have a pair of 34" UW's at work and I prefer a large single screen Ever since win 10 brought us quarter...

    it really is... All the way to add a puppet in control of your enemy nations. We've been doing it for a very long time in the US funding regime changes. This recent one is the first time it has publicly happened to us though.

    QuadrigaCX Founder's Cold Storage Wallet Found

    Nobody is keeping LARGE sums of cash on these crappy exchanges. Its basically peanuts from thousands of people will add up to real money pretty quickly. I've accidentally had large sums on weird exchanges because at the time I put them there it was peanuts. last fall I went around logging into...

    The american dream is get just large enough to squish somebody else and take from them until you do it enough to squish bigger people then you can commit rampant fraud and have prostitutes and mistresses and become the president of a once proud nation which has become a laughingstock. You just...

    China installing spy chips on hardware

    I'm dismissing this is as not really news and yes accepting it. I personally prefer China spying on me over america. I live in america and they're out to screw me anyway. China can't realistically touch me or do harm to me based on what they find. American? possibly view my tax situation as...

    China installing spy chips on hardware

    So china gets you if its chinese made or america gets you if its american made. I don't think for a second that the american government doesn't do this kind of thing too. Given the way america is anything america has russia controls. Do we need the germans in charge of everything?

    Quiet and cheap SFP+ 10G switch with more than 2 ports?

    I ended up buying a Mikrotik CSS326-24G-2S+RM that I found for $100 but a few days later won an auction i forgot about. A NETGEAR ProSafe GSM7328S for $50. the mikrotik only has the 2 SFP+ ports. I ordered some more transceivers and the switch is working great. I'm leaning more towards just...

    2950X build now or wait for mobos? First AMD since Phenom2!

    It would be 2 gens newer than what this guy has and a ton of added cores at a low price. TR is not a refined platform YET for a guy using an 8 year old platform if he really wants TR what harm is waiting another year? If he really wants AMD a higher end Ryzen would certainly be a huge upgrade...

    2950X build now or wait for mobos? First AMD since Phenom2!

    I personally would wait. The TR market is still a mess. Depending on how much you can really use the TR surfing labgopher may get the work side of things squared away great. there are plenty of decent priced dual 2670 or 2690V2 type setups you can go with. dual 2690V2 would get you to 20 cores...

    Need to upgrade my firewall and internal wireless at my house.

    I haven't done anything with QoS yet. Haven't had a need to really. None of them seem capable of really draining the connection yet. Only the tvs watching 4k content really seem to use a ton. I have a fairly large Plex setup so a lot of what they watch is internal. The ones that really watch a...

    Quiet and cheap SFP+ 10G switch with more than 2 ports?

    I was just looking at: CRS328-4C-20S-4S+RM CRS328-24P-4S+RM - was $360 on amazon but sold out presently and has POE which is a nice perk. I've been meaning to get some more ubiquiti stuff setup and even some cameras. 4 SFP+ and can fit most of my network all on that switch. Being all fiber...

    Need to upgrade my firewall and internal wireless at my house.

    for the wireless yes but on the router and switch side of things I wouldn't. The router stuff specifically was very lacking then very buggy as features rolled out. I'm on pfsense presently and will never touch a ubiquiti router again. I'm a programmer so not somebody who knows the crazy details...

    Quiet and cheap SFP+ 10G switch with more than 2 ports?

    Title is pretty much everything. I have two systems running 10G right now but now I want to add my desktop and probably another server. I have had a taste of 10G and now 1G just wont do. How quiet? a lot quieter than an R710. My server rack is in my walk in closet attached to my bedroom. I've...

    Looking for >gigabit between 2 PCs, I'm just at the 10m range of sfp+ DAC

    I didn't even know there were two ways to hook them up. I won my 50/50 apparently. I have freenas and a win 10 machine went straight to 620Mb/sec which the 1G was around 113 which I'm not confident my storage array can do much more than that. I should switch to terracopy. I haven't done any...

    Looking for >gigabit between 2 PCs, I'm just at the 10m range of sfp+ DAC

    Mines coming monday. the same only using connectx-3. I'm finding myself wanting to do a third and fourth machine but the cost of a switch with 4 ports noped me right out of that.

    Financial Info Leaked in Newegg Data Breach

    RMA's with them used to be great. My last one instead of replacing the product I bought on sale they refunded me hoping I'd buy something much more expensive. Hopefully finding something to buy from a person here instead.

    Looking for >gigabit between 2 PCs, I'm just at the 10m range of sfp+ DAC

    One of the biggest points to doing things around here is going above what you need :) Aren't those the ones people are ditching because they use a ton more power than like Mellanox and some of the others?

    Looking for >gigabit between 2 PCs, I'm just at the 10m range of sfp+ DAC

    I made the mistake of looking at 40gb you can get dual 40gb cards for like $100. Now the thoughts of taking a retired mining mobo and popping some of these in to create a high powered switch. I don't think I'd connect more then 3 machines yet.

    PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 580 8GB 256-BitGDDR5 $209.99

    Its always worth it to go with any other brand. My last RMA with them took 2 months. I'd had a total of 3 RMA's with them over the years. my most frustrating was a 290x. nobody plans on having to rma something but it happens. make sure you give your cash to companies that will take care of you.

    F-35 Program Cutting Corners to “Complete” Development

    For it to come back we have to actually start doing something right. Education? Health care? merica is worse than some third world countries in far too many things. Only thing we properly top the charts in is locking people up and other terrible things you don't want to top.

    Buy a 1070 FE or a XFX 570 4GB

    I don't understand limiting the place of purchase to best buy unless a best buy card is involved I guess but there's more incentive to dodge the state tax and buying online. the best buy reward is only 6% when using the card (5 if you haven't spent a lot like me)

    Wait so 2080Ti is actually renamed Titan?

    thought they had a $3k titan already that is actually this chip with HBM? An amazing card really that should be looked at a bit closer if you're thinking about SLI.

    Buy a 1070 FE or a XFX 570 4GB

    its a situation where AMD doesn't have anything reasonable to use. If you go to like a vega you're left with not great performance outside of a few things and more heat than its worth. the 1070 is an amazing card for the wattage used. I have stacks of 1050ti's that I usually put in side rigs for...
