    EVGA Nu Audio soundcard

    Z2300 was alright back in the day, you definitely need a serious upgrade. Lot's of 2.0/2.1 systems out there now with serious performance, although they do get spendy. I built a stereo system just for my PC but that can get spendy too, lol. My soundcard is more of an internal DAC and I...

    Rants etc.....

    We did the same thing 4 years ago. We also moved 200KM's so I have to clear out our house and move it all with very little help. In the end I wasn't done clearing out the house in time but the new owners were cool about it. The house we closed on came with keys that did not fit the locks...

    Rants etc.....

    At least it waited until the warm wether to stop working, but our furnace is dead and we can't use the central a/c during this crazy hot week. We live in the middle of Lindsay so we get all the heatsoak from the traffic and pavement/buildings. Worst part is that the ductwork needs to be...

    Lenovo Thinkpad T450s

    Depends on what else comes with it, but if it has a power supply and is mostly flawless then you could get $250 or so.

    Why is everyone selling the Pascal GPUs?

    That has never happened in the history of video cards. They may do slight discounts, but they almost never drop the prices when there is a new release.

    Why is everyone selling the Pascal GPUs?

    It is laughable that people still want top dollars for cards that were horribly abused. Then there are the sellers claiming no mining. The used market is dead really if you want a reliable card. Just like gas, video card prices are illogical.

    NCIX bankrupt?

    Doesn't matter, that brand name is so heavily tarnished you'd have to be out of your mind to shop there, no matter who owns it. NCIX has never been known as the most reliable company. This is not a new thing, they have had terrible service as long as I can remember.

    NCIX bankrupt?

    Whether or not a business should, bankruptcy doesn't mean they have to close. I struggle to see the logic in doing it though.

    Hot Deals!!!!!

    Amazon has tons of 3rd party listings for stuff that is bogus. There are more than a few listings with fake SD cards on both .ca and .com. Amazon does not care as they only guarantee what they personally sell is real. No government is going to even dream of punishing Amazon for anything...

    GTX 1060 ROG Strix 6GB

    I took the Ebay route because no one around here was going to pay $300 for a R9 290x and Kijiji is useless as Lindsay is 50KM away from everything, no one comes here. I will post my numbers here: I got $412.01CAD shipped for it. Ebay took $49.39CAD (43.71fees + $5.68 tax) and Paypal took...

    GTX 1060 ROG Strix 6GB

    I just tried to cash in on my R9 290x on Ebay this week. It did sell for $380. I got slightly less than I should have for shipping as well. Ebay takes 10% of the total, including 10% of the shipping and other fees as well. Paypay steals another 3-5%, I can't remember exactly. Paypal is also...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Nice shiny new PSU for my Commodore 64. I put the "brick of death" away, never to threaten my ancient technology again, lol!

    tri-x 290, ddr3 ram, i5 2500k

    Whoops! I missed the lack of the "X" which does make a big difference. I bet it still gets well north of $250. Literally 1 month before the Bitcoin boom I paid $150 for a perfect working ASUS R9 290X CU II in the retail box. I've wanted to cash it in the last year or so but then I'd have to...

    tri-x 290, ddr3 ram, i5 2500k

    TRI-X 290's are still going for $400+ on Ebay. You would likely get top dollar on KIJIJI as well. I would not sell that one cheap if I were you. Ram is $40 each for the sets. CPU is somewhat tricky, but likely only worth $100 or less, likely less.

    NCIX bankrupt?

    What an ugly way to end an ugly ending. No justice for those that got screwed either....

    Whats your latest purchase?

    There is one on KIJIJI about 30 minutes away, but they want $150 for it. I gotta call them and give them an offer.
