Two interesting finds today...
Found an EVGA 600 W1 at Best Buy for $35. I know it isn't a high end PSU, but I had a 500 W1 for a while and it was a great PSU. Couldn't resist at that price.

Also found an NEC LT20 DLP projector at the thrift store originally selling for $13, but my student discount brought it down to around $10. Resolution is only 1024 x 768, but the refresh rate is 85Hz and it is insanely bright. It seems to work perfectly.

EDIT: Resolution on the projector goes up to 1280 by 1024 at 75Hz. My laptop defaulted to 1024 by 768 at 85Hz when I connected it for some reason.

EDIT 2:
Took a picture of it working. I have it projecting onto the wall opposite the one my desk is against, which is a distance of just under ten feet from the projector. The image is about 75" diagonally. Phone cameras suck in low light.

It's not a 100% perfect, but a few straightened out pins on the bottom right handside and we'll be away... Thing is, do I really need to get the Crosshair V Formula-Z?? I'm not so sure... Just needing the 6 and 7 now for my Ryzen CPUs and I'll be away. Then hopefully grab a pair of 8's along with some newer 3 Series Ryzen CPUs for my girl friend and daughter.. When you go mad, you have to go mad properly :D

Oh man!!! I've always loved the Crosshair boards and at one point had 4 different ones. Wish I would have kept them and also collected them as well. Usually a rock solid board also.

I found a very good deal on Amazon.co.uk for the RTX 2080 Gaming Trio 654£...I went for it. Put my 1080Ti for sale yesterday and sold it :)) , the RTX should arrive today. I hope there will be a 10% difference in performance as my 1080Ti was not a really good OC...max 30mhz on GPU core so I was only getting around 1924mhz with the boost.

good luck but at 3440x1440 you'll find them dead equal.you'd also find it very hard to keep a steady 60 fps at this resolution with rtx,even on medium.Plus I would not recommend a 8GB card for anything over 2560x1440.IMO you made a trade off,certainly not an upgrade.Should've waited for a good deal on 2080Ti. Though trio is a much better quality card than aorus and I think you'll be able to appreciate that.

Done some testing yesterday and I had the 1080Ti for a while so I will play with the 2080 today (if it gets delivered) and I will find out :)

I need to have a mass clear out at some point, I'll see if I can do a photo shoot :) I really need a big sort out as well, so it wouldn't be a bad thing at all to do! :)

I finally did it, and I only say I finally did it because I voted on a past poll inquiring which component you would upgrade at the end of last year. I voted for a monitor upgrade, also Freesync.

The curve of the panel is throwing me off since I'm use to a flat screen otherwise no complaints for the newly added screen space that 2560x1440 offers compared to 1080P.

here's my latest purchase it takes the place of 2 x Kingston V300 120GB SSD's in RAID0 even though they weren't bad performers it was just the lack of space that was the reason for replacement but the difference is really quite noticeable for the better using the single 860 EVO vs RAID0

The haul from yesterday’s bulk purchase at the recycler. These are the functional (or mostly so, in the case of the 5950).

Row 1: Radeon 9800 Pro |GeForce GT 430 1GB (for resale) | GeForce FX 5950 Ultra
Row 2: Radeon HD 7750 | GeForce GT 640 4GB (for resale) | GeForce GT 430 PCI
Row 3: Radeon 9600 Pro | Radeon HD 8490 (for resale) | 3Dfx Voodoo 3 1000

So some duplicates from the last trip, which is great because that means I can just sell them off. No need to keep more.

Mate, I got some testing out of the new card and I can definitely say it is 8 to 25 fps better than my Aorus 1080Ti in games...that it is also because I managed to get a 2100 constant Boost by adding +130mhz to the GPU core and the memory is OC to 15800 from 14000mhz. So I would say for the money I bought this (654£) it is a really good deal. RTX is nice but not usable at this moment, tried BF5

Why people who buy cooling blocks for cpu or gpu never use car products and buy liquid in bottles at computer stores for more expensive? Is it only for the color?

Interested in hearing about the drives when you have time to test :)
Will do, tomorrow after work. It is usable now but the background initializing makes it slow.
They will be for storing my UHD and Blu-Ray rips. :D I wanted more room had 3Tb before. And at 75 a pop couldn't pass up.
Copying Uhd rips from my usb 3.0 hd box results in 165 to 170 MBs sustained. with background initialization being preformed. 700MBs to a ssd on a sata 2 port. Rar extraction of a 9.5gb .iso took 39 seconds. Seems good enough for me. Although they are in a Raid 10 config.

Marshall earphones for only 120 €!


Just kidding, there's no way I would give anywhere close to that amount for in-ear earphones. They have Marshall-esque M logo, but are made by QKZ. Deep bass and very good sound quality for the price of ~7 €. Metal case, soft and springy silicon rubber and gold-plated 3.5 mm jack.

Edit: Model is QKZ DM7 if anyone is interested. I recommend them.

Why people who buy cooling blocks for cpu or gpu never use car products and buy liquid in bottles at computer stores for more expensive? Is it only for the color?
Because they're different...

As a car mechanic I would totally use car coolant that can last 100 000km especially if you have hard Working 24h/7 system. But hey its only me! :)

my xpg sx950u and hdd docking station arrived today. I'm positively surprised by both. the ssd manages to keep up with my 860 evo 500gb in synthetics.

I'm wondering why I bought it only now. the installation is quick and effortless and most importantly the drives don't seem to take any performance hit,they feel as snappy as they did when connected to sata ports. they're quieter too cause they're sitting very firmly in the dock without getting any vibrations like they did when they were inside the pc when . an absolutely great thing to have given its cost and functionality.and you can switch them off whenever you want.

I'm curious why you would have thought otherwise? How is that docking station connected?
