  • With the addition of the new Basilisk V3* to my Razer menagerie (where a Deathadder V2 Mini and Viper Mini also reside), I think it's safe to say that I'm officially a part of the Sneki Snek Cult, lol.

    *The V2 was thought to be the G502 Killer, but the V3 said "hold my beer" and "bitch you thought!" and...yeah, G502 who? Don't know dat bitch :wtf: :roll:
    I think I have a PC part buying addiction, y'all. Couldn't pass up the B550 PG Velocita I saw on Amazon, brand spankin' new, for $150 buckaroos. That's around the same price I paid for that used one in January! Anyway, send help yo! xD

    Long history of hardware addiction. I took a 5 year hiatus, thought I was cured. Wrong. Since December: 3600x (bought/sold), 3600XT (bought/sold), 10600K (bought/sold), 10900 (bought/sold), 3900XT (bought), 5600x (bought/sold), 10850K (bought), 10850k (bought), 5900x (bought), 10850K (bought), and yesterday I bought a 5950x. :laugh:

    Yeah, but at least it's in the name of WCG. Three 10850's, a 5950x and a 5900x will do a fair amount of work. So at least it's not entirely ridiculous. :laugh:
    When it comes to PC parts, I have high-end taste and not much else, lol. I look at these boards (and pretty much anything else) that I can't buy because I'm unable to work (so no income) and I can't ask family for stuff like this because they're all tired of my "computer crap". Can't really ask other people for help either, because then I feel like an even bigger PoS than I already do.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat, can't work and low income, I've come to accept that as long as what I have meets my needs I don't need to upgrade.
    I still have the desire for new and better, but manage to get it at a much slower rate now, I never seem to have the latest.

    Honestly, I think anyone who actually tries to make you feel bad for asking for help, are wrong for that. You don't deserve to feel that way about yourself just because you need help. We all have items we cherish. We all want for that. Some people have easier access than others. Not a reflection on you.
    So tell me something, ya'll. Would I be crazy to sell my 1660 Super and use my "ancient" Sapphire R9 280X (Tri-X) GPU until GPU prices and such come back down to Earth?

    Forest maps? It's the bloody ewoks. I guarantee it.

    You'd be partially right, froggy. There is a game mode that features ewoks (only played it once and it was terrifying lol) but the modes I tend to play don't feature them (although, you can actually play as one on the Light Side) but do feature lots of sprawling landscapes!

    I remember them from battlefront 2 on xbox way back when. They threw brown "rocks" that would knock you down instantly and were so damn annoying. We used to joke the rocks were just ewok shit. I'm not sure we were wrong.
    Got my 1st COVID shot yesterday, woo! Arm has been hurting something awful since last night and sleeping was...interesting. Feeling a bit tired and sore still.

    @rtb Got my 2nd one (both Pfizer) day before yesterday and it didn't hurt until I got home. Muscle aches and chills galore, had to skip work and luckily they have exceptions for COVID related to where I didn't have to use my vaca days. Reminds me of a Typhoid and Hep B shot combo as far as pain intensity.

    Yeah my dad had similar to you Bogmali, it was pretty awful for him. I think the experiences vary, not sure if it has to do with whether you actually had COVID or not, but it could... as I did and it's barely phasing me.

    Sorry to hear it was rough for your dad, Bog. I was supposed to get the Moderna shot, but the center was doing Pfizer the day I got mine. According to the info packet I got, chills, aches, injection site pain, all that stuff is apparently "within spec". Still, doesn't make it easier to deal with. On the bright side, if you get arm pain and all that, I guess that means it's working? Lol.
