  1. Trailer Park Boys corner.

    11 September 2018 - 05:17 PM

    Hey guys. I just got Netflix up and running on my Xbox One S and I'm very interested in the cult classic show: Trailer Park Boys. Some people are raving about this show. Since I'm new to the series. Which TPB episodes, seasons, movies and specials should I recommend watching? I'm about to enter Juan's, Ricky's, Bubbles', J-Roc's, Mr. Leahy's (RIP) and whoever else's world. Wish me luck!

    What's your favorite TPB moment, episode, season, special or movie?
  2. Cryptocurrency thread/rant.

    23 January 2018 - 05:18 PM

    Here's a rant about my opinion about Cryptocurrency folks.
    IMO. I hate cryptomining with passion at the moment because the cryptominers are hogging up all of the Radeon and Nvidia graphics cards and the 3rd party resellers are selling them for two to three times the MSRP. No wonder why people can't build a new gaming pc and afford a single GPU on their own. It's bullshit that all GPUs are sold out. Posted Image At least NVidia is telling retailers to sell directly to gamers instead of miners. I'm looking forward to the bubble to burst and everything will be back to normal.

    My message to the cryptominers jerks out there: Stop doing this shit, stop buying every single cards thats out there, sell off all of your coins and invest in ONLY Shitcoin! (pictured below) No wonder why you are ruining PC gaming and making GPUs so fucking expensive!

    Cryptomine this!

    Rant over. Anyways what's your take on Cryptocurrency? Will it lift people out of poverty? Pay off medical and collage loans? Will it be good or bad for the future?

    EDIT: Does this fit in Hardware/Software Forum or the General Forum?
  3. MicroTransactions and Loot Boxes

    02 November 2017 - 05:45 PM

    The Video Game publishers (EA, Activision, Ubisoft and anyone else) are appearing to be more greedier by implementing Microtransactions and Loot Crates in their games. I don't want Gearbox implementing them in Duke Nukem 5 *if* they make it in the future. I think the video gaming industry is getting worse because of this. Here's what a loot box looks like.

    What's your take on Microtranactions and Loot Boxes?
  4. The "Used" Computers thread.

    28 September 2017 - 01:18 PM

    Well to start off about used computers... I had to junk this shitty ASUS Motherboard of my former PC because I was having a few serious problems w/ it described below.

    1: The motherboard made the Windows Update to take a long time to update the Windows Defender, the drivers and shit.
    2: Won't update the BIOS whatsoever.
    3: It's drivers and utilities are difficult and confusing to install.

    This made me want to go back to MSI and so far I'm happy w/ MSI motherboards b/c of their phenomenally useful Live Update utility and easy to upgrade BIOS.

    I had to scavenge and sell the i7-6700K CPU and ASUS NVidia GTX 1060 6GB GPU to get cash out of it. I was left without a computer for several days and I was about to purchase an AMD Ryzen 1600 CPU, an MSI Motherboard and an Windows 10 Home OS disc until I went to this place called Device Pitstop. I went in an purchased a "used" desktop PC that I been using for about a month just to tide me over until I buy one that's suitable for gaming from XoticPC for $1500 then I went back to Device Pitstop and came across this PC w/ an i7-6700K that cost $755 that's good for gaming. So I went and bought that one and switched out the 128 GB SanDisk SSD w/ an 500 GB Samsung SSD. That'll save me around $750 and not spending a premium on having XoticPC build a PC for you. I will be keeping my 1st PC I bought from Device Pitstop for backup purposes just in case the current PC I'm using fails or something. It also saves me the strength and hassle on buying parts and building it myself. I won't have to worry about accidentally breaking the motherboard, damaging the CPU socket and so forth.

    Here's the following specs of the backup PC I have.

    • i5-6600K CPU w/ a stock Intel cooling fan
    • RX Radeon 480 8GB GPU
    • Scavenged 2x8 sticks = 16GB HyperX DDR4 2133 Mhz RAM
    • MSI H110M PRO-D Motherboard
    • A swapped and scavenged 500 Samsung 850 Evo SSD as the OS drive
    • Scavenged 1 TB WD HDD storage drive.
    • Unknown brand 600W PSU

    The problem I have with this PC is when you turn it on. it gets noisy but it'll quiet down in 20 seconds or so. I think it's the CPU fan or I don't know

    The specs for the PC I'm currently using right now. I got this for $755 w/ a $5 off coupon.

    • i7-6700K CPU w/ liquid cooling (much quieter than my backup PC)
    • Nvidia GTX 960 2GB GPU
    • 2x8 = 16GB Crucial DDR4 2133 Mhz RAM
    • MSI Z170A PC Mate Motherboard
    • A swapped 500 Samsung 850 Evo SSD as the OS drive
    • 1 TB HDD WD (dunno what the model of the hard drive is) as storage.
    • ATNG Power Co., LTD 600W PSU w/ 80 Plus Bronze

    Both of these PCs are made by CyberPowerPC and both PCs has Windows 10 Home. Not spending extra on Windows 10 Pro.

    So. Do you guys own any PCs or laptops that are in used condition? In the future I'm thinking about upgrading the graphics card from and 960 2GB to an either Nvidia GTX 1060 or a 1050 ti in my PC I'm currently using.

    P.S. Screw ASUS products! I'm sticking w/ MSI for life!
