  1. 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!
  2. Adobe to give Flash the axe in 2020.

    26 July 2017 - 07:06 AM

    Besides killing off Windows 7 support in 2020. 2020 will also face another loss in the technology sector. Adobe will terminate support for Flash in that year because it's deprecated. It's gonna be replaced w/ HTML5. Anyone have any fond memories of Flash? I remember using it to watch movies and play games on Newgrounds.com. I wonder what the Fulps are gonna do about it when Flash dies off. So in the year 2020; RIP Windows 7 and Flash.

  3. Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition MP3 Soundtrack I've discovered.

    16 March 2017 - 08:15 AM

    Just a heads up. A while ago I was looking for the MP3 soundtrack to Duke Nukem 3D Carribean: Life's a Beach soundtrack. And I've discovered this Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition MP3 Soundtrack from www.originalgamescores.com. It includes Nuclear Winter and Carribean: Life's a Beach soundtracks in MP3 format too. So to those who didn't get a chance to purchase and download the Duke Nukem 3D soundtrack from Retro Game Music Bundle - in which I'm lucky I did - can download this.

    I think that this is probably piracy but Bobby Prince and Lee Jackson is gonna be pissed that this is available as a free download. It'll be a matter of time that both of them discovered this and takes it down.

    DISCLAIMER: Another thing is that I DID NOT ripped the soundtrack myself. Someone else did. I just happened to stumble across this. So here's the download link below.

  4. Infinite updating leaderboard bug on DN3D Megaton for PS3.

    13 March 2017 - 07:17 AM

    Whenever I beat Hell to the Chief on Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition on Playstation 3. It updates the leaderboard in an infinite loop. The only way out of this is either exiting to the XMB or a hard reset. Does Abstraction Games cannot update the game to fix this bug? I had to remove it from PS3 for good. Anyone else getting this problem?

    EDIT: Does this need to be moved to the Duke Nukem General forum. I realized that this is for Eduke32 and Mapster32 bugs. Is this acceptable on the Bug reports & "help me" threads?
  5. The Dell/Alienware discussion.

    05 January 2017 - 08:25 AM

    Anyone a fan of this company called Dell? Own any of their products? I haven't but I'm thinking about getting this laptop for $799. Using it just in case my new desktop fails or using it for travel purposes.

    I also hear about Dell getting slammed for their abysmal customer support. It's being outsourced to India so Dell is being very conservative w/ their finances. Posted Image at this! https://www.consumer...s/dell_svc.html

    Gotta cut this short. Gotta head off to work.

    UPDATED: Now you can discuss stuff related to Alienware since it's been owned by Dell.
