I would love to post pictures of some of the computers I service, but because I can't share pictures of the service area itself due to legal confidentiality stuff, you will just have to use your imagination. I will say that many computers come in looking no different than your average dryer lint screen.I found a spiderweb in a computer once. Not mine. Was in a nook with no airflow but had a bit of heat. Probably loved the spot.
Tue is Computex, and then we should start to hear what everyone will be coming out with (whether they're at the show or not).You heard the man. The PC dev cycle solstice is upon us. This is the time to consecrate your new rig to the glory of the master race.
We're updating/replacing two rigs in our household. It's going to be just over $2500 for the both of them. I'll post the specs and rationale in this thread once it's all together (waiting on the CPUs to actually hit the market so we can buy them).(PC Gaming Graphic)
Your best bet is probably one of the flavors of linux. Probably Ubuntu, though Slackware has a reputation for making older machines run well.Onto a different subject: what non-Windoze OS could I throw on an older Toshiba Satellite laptop to make it somewhat useable?
I'm still rockin' a 1090T, though that's 6-cores to your 4. I would check to see if it's really bottlenecking your 970, though, especially since even the cheapest currently-available quad-core LGA1150 (the i5-4590) is currently selling for about $200* all by itself (i.e., not counting the motherboard).I am planning on switching to Intel since i think my old AMD Phenom II 955 BE is bottlenecking my 970. I dont want to spend more then 250€ for a MOBO and processor at the moment. Should I go for a 1150 Mobo and CPU or 1151?
It might be a race to the bottom! (Price-wise, that is!)The top Ryzen chips were opened for preorder today, and AMD is claiming that the 1700X (their #2 offering) gives performance equivalent to an Intel Core i7-6900k, but for 60% less money. The official launch date isn't until next week, at which point the review embargo will end and we will find out the validity of that claim.
