    Could you put a price on this USED build?

    I mean it's a "bad" price overall, but if the OP must have a new PC now that it's not terrible at todays inflated prices. OP what is this buy for? If it's not an urgent need I'd tell him good luck on the future sale and go on your way.

    2 Questions, 1 game (Battlefield 2042)

    If you can wait a couple months this game will probably be on sale. It's "a fun shooter" but not in a good place as far as a battlefield game goes.

    Battlefield 2042

    As bad as the game is, it's more eye opening on how corrupt the video game marketing world has become. There's well known people/pages scoring this game in the 90's!! Even if you find the game fun and know nothing about the battlefield games before it that had more features, the bugs alone...

    I am using my laptop with charger all the time. What would happen if I don't install Optimus at all?

    From googling (because I had no idea what you were talking about) It makes no sense to disable optimus as the performance gain is negligible

    It's the 20th? The launch is a joke

    Battlefield 2042

    The only good thing about this game being so bad, is it convinced me to reinstall bf4 and it's the most fun I've had with a shooter in years

    Battlefield 2042

    The issue is (ignoring the specialist/class/etc.. changes) we have SO MANY MISSING FEATURES!! Past battlefield games laid a great framework and it's like they accidentally deleted it all and started over. (Also a ton of issues stem from them forcing 128 players... and trying to make it work)...

    Battlefield 2042

    I cancelled my EA pass membership that I grabbed for this... if they patch it enough between now and next month maybe I'll grab the game proper The more I play, the more it becomes obvious that 128 players is a mistake (along with the bloom, broken vehicles, lack of weapons, etc..)

    Battlefield 2042

    Grabbed this and it's... ok.. Pro's - Big maps - Solid graphics - I have no performance issues on my hardware - The change attachments on the fly thing is kind of nice - Infantry weapons seem fairly well balanced (although it's hard to tell in a chaotic battlefield game) Con's - Big maps...

    mining Kadena KDA

    https://minerstat.com/coin/KDA/profitability I don't see GD2, but if you meant KD2 it looks fairly profitable right now. Actually looks like an interesting coin to invest in.

    Windows 11 General Discussion

    So I'm unable to update, I assume I need to go into bios and enable TPM and convert over to UEFI etc... which I can do... But how the hell does M$ expect the average user to know how to do that stuff.

    NETGEAR Expands Orbi Line With Industry's First 5G Tri-band WiFi 6 Mesh System

    So you're telling me the places that don't even have wired high speed internet are expected to have reliable 5G coverage? Hell there's a lot of the country where you can struggle to have reliable 4G.
