Re: The Techno-Bleg Thread

Welp it's ordered. Did not do the corsair carbide but the NZXT H500 case. EVGA RTX 2070 super XC 8G, Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6GHz. Monster Samsung 500gb PCIe SSD, 2Tb seagate secondary, corsair 650 modular PSU. Corsair Vengeance ddr4/3200 memory 2x8. I'm okay with it. I broke down and grabbed the Samsung P...

Re: What the hell should I be staring at?

Thumbs up also on Psycho Pass and Girls und Panzer. A couple others come to mind. Death Note - More popular than it probably should've been it's still an interesting show if a bit convoluted at times. It doesn't quite payoff it's premise but it's a fun ride as the characters try to scheme and trap e...

Re: What time do you normally go to bed?

I try to get to sleep around 11 but that often gets extended to 12 for a variety of reasons. I typically get up sometime after 7am, but lately I tend to drag and often don't get up until closer to 8. Especially if go to sleep closer to 12. I'd probably wake a little earlier but one of my roommates w...

I think I'm going to spring for that Samsung PCIe SSD. That thing is screaming fast compared to everything else I see. The m.2 SATA WD 500gb does read/write at 545/525. The Samsung PCIe 500gb does read/write at 3,500/3,200. Zoiks. Now my budget is off tho. I remember a guy from a tech forum who sai...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

The longer I look at it the more convinced I am that what many/most people are actually angling for is an authority to tell them they did everything they could in end of life and extensive care conditions. They maybe don't want immediate best care, they want someone to tell them what's acceptable a...

Re: Video Games!

Looks neat, but I'm wondering why they went with the hard "Mega Action Movie Trailer" cut, music, and ambience. Seems a little overly dramatic and combative when they're talking about togetherness and drawing in families and casuals. I mean, I know those things can get cutthroat, but seems like you...

Still thinking about the new desktop. Another friend proposed this build. Same case and GPU so I’ll probably do that.

I would also point out that the heyday of American capitalism was after slavery had been abolished. If anything it was holding things back.

Re: Twitter!

Specifically, those people are Trent Reznor, Johnny Cash, and Kermit the Frog. Not Michael Stipe, as well? (albeit differently) Michael Stipe's statement that "everybody hurts" is just an attempt to delegitimize the struggles of the minority by equating minority hurt to their oppressor's hurt.

This was something I just threw together on pcpartpicker website. Spec wise this would be just under cutting edge. GPU is the biggest variable in price. CPU coming in second.

I wouldn't spend money on RTX until there are more than 3 games with ray tracing. The RTX cards are a better buy than the GTX with the release of the Super series. A RTX 2070 Super is basically equivalent to a GTX 1080, or even 1080ti, for less money. Also the higher end GTX cards are starting to g...
