Never again.. - Touchscreen device (tablet or 2-in-1 or convertible or small laptop) - lightweight (under 4 lbs) - 4 threads (let's face it, duals are dead. If...

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Even if my laptop is repaired and becomes stable, I'm still looking for a new tablet. Why? I realized I have two android tablets yet rarely use either, because for me Android just is for a phone, Facebook, phone-esque games, etc. I want a windows based PC that go out with me, still be used for...

    Unreasonable request?

    Some of you may remember my... Altercations with Dell and their awful support. In the end I was forced to give up, got super stressed out by the whole situation and set everything aside. Now, however, I do want to get my very expensive out of warranty Alienware fixed and functioning normally...

    Need help to explain this: APU vs old chipset

    I had an FM2 (A6-7600k) build with windows 10 installed, used the built-in APU to watch YouTube videos on my secondary screen beside my main one. Unfortunately the guy that sold me that board didn't tell me how flaky it was, so it completely died on me. I didn't want lose the open tabs because I...

    PC/Question - Behemoth's Heart. 4x 6272.

    Hey all, sorry I'm not around much anymore. I've got a question: would any be interested in Behemoth's 4x Opteron 6272s? Whether or not you are, what would be a reasonable price? Long story short, I need more per thread speed, and the 2.1ghz/core is a bit slow. Basically, does anyone want a...

    Yet another Hotas Question

    Yeah, me again. Long story short, my health is getting worse, as is my mobility/dexterity. Been trying to manage with my current Hotas setup for a few months, but tbh it's almost impossible to play for longer than 15-20. I've been using an X55 rhino. It works well in almost every way, except...

    Trustworthy Nvidia, at it again - a second, awful GT1030

    And people wonder why I don't buy Nvidia anymore. Sigh. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2018/07/09/buyer-beware-nvidias-geforce-gt-1030-is-a-grossly-misleading-gpu/ Same price, same name. 65% memory bandwidth compared to the original GT1030. It's despicable.

    The HOTAS Question - Budget-minded flying

    To be or not to be, that's a question I'm not asking right now. What I am doing, is wrecking my brain trying to find a good new Hotas setup. I've been leaning towards the Warthog for a long, long time. But trying to find one used seems impossible, and even new (even when on sale) it's like $400...

    So... is AM1 dead-dead?

    Sorry in advance, I've been out of the loop for a while (personal stuff). But I remember AM1 being very promising: Cheap boards with almost no chips, everything on the AM1 CPU (NB +SB), perfect for htpc/light use PCs. But I haven't seen any mention of AM1 since Ryzen came around, and I Have seen...
