  • /shrug People are free to spend their hard earned cash however they please. It's not for me to comment on what someone else pays for. I'm entitled to an opinion, certainly, but there's no point in airing that out in public, as it won't change anyo…
  • https://www.recode.net/2017/4/27/15413870/comcast-broadband-internet-pay-tv-subscribers-q1-2017 Has some interesting and relevant statistics. I'll let readers draw their own conclusions. This is also a good read, and talks about my biggest concern…
  • I actually wouldn't mind paying extra for "premium access" The problem is, knowing how corporations work, that it wouldn't be a one-way payment, and it wouldn't actually give me better access. I would pay more for "premium access". The content pro…

  • Net Neutrality is a poor compromise between actual market competition in local markets and the total monopoly oversight that being declared a utility entails. It's not uncommon in the US for large swaths of the population to only have a single high…
  • Pet peeve of mine: One chip runs cooler than another. Not necessarily true. The temperature a device runs at is a function of the energy input and the heat removal. You can make a Ryzen run hot. You can make an Intel run hot. Heck, you can make a…

  • The RGBs are what makes it overclock so well.
  • Also, Pay wall would work, but I think it would be pretty negatively perceived. ESO did it and took a lot of heat for it. I would support the achievement unlock - it would limit the number, and reward those who were willing to work toward it. I re…
  • laxie said: Flyte27 said: Aside from experience penalties, you can also add other penalties.  For instance, if you have factions in your game and Elves are rare because they are fighting with humans and other races they can be killed o…
  • Going back to the OP more specifically - I tend to broadly agree with your father, you'll get the best performance benefits if your fastest drive is also your boot/OS/Swap drive. There are a few exceptions to this, but you start to get into corner …
  • The general consensus around the internet: Real world: you will see a tremendous difference going to ~any~ type of modern SSD over traditional HDD. Past that, you won't see much of a difference between the different types of SSDs, as something else…
  • I liked Legion story the first time through. I dropped out somewhere before Argus, never did any of the raids. Had fun though, was worth the price of admission and a few months sub time to get through the updated story and level a few alts up from s…
  • FX9590 is last generation AMD, it's circa 2012 or so. You probably don't really want that. You want to be looking for AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 AMD Threadripper (high end) Intel 7000 series or 8000 series, Core i5 or i7 Changing the processor also means yo…
  • I agree with Vrika, I wouldn't disregard AMD just because of the brand name. It's all about what price your able to find them for. Get the best performance for the price. The only downfall to Vega right now is that it's not available in AIB configu…

  • Check out Falcon Northwest and Origin. They will both put together a solid rig and stand behind it. You will pay for it, but your budget is sufficient to get a top notch system from one of these companies. I put together two more or less equivalent…
