I bought an Apple USB-C to 3.5mm dongle after seeing some talk about how good it is for the price.

I'm not disappointed. It'll be the audio output for my PC going forward.

got 8gb ddr3 1600mhz dolgix stick for just 820 rupees, now i have 12gb ram
as my main computer got busted with cpu dying im now using a spare pc with 4th gen i3
i wanted another 8gb stick so i can have full 16gb ram which is essential for newer games but after trying several times i couldn't convince my brother
i think the 2 months wait will be worth it for new cpu+mobo as i will have warranty and won't get stuck with old gen

the sabrent 2230 nvme i bought for 90 bucks 512gb, is now on sale... and the 1tb version of the same drive is 109.... fml. only 20 bucks more and I could have doubled my storage, was 159 at the time i bought mine. 3 days past the refund period. fuck you sabrent. they 100% timed this sale to make sure the initial buyers of these just released drives missed the refund period on the sale price. load of horse shit.

My latest purchase... This. Z77P-D3 from Gigabyte, i3-2100, and two 4-GB RAM sticks. Paid as little as $30. Just wanted an emergency PC and I got it. Will upgrade with a free i5-3330 when my buddy gives it to me so this PC won't be so tragic anymore.

The chipset fan in my old motherboard was bugging me, so I got a different one.

20230518_165402_HDR.jpg


Went for an ASRock B550 Taichi. I got it because it lacks a chipset fan (obviously), has eight SATA ports (like my last board), and has three accessible PCIe slots after my GPU is installed.

If I have any complaints so far, my main one is that the PCIe slot locks are horrible, worse than my previous board. It is extremely difficult to remove my GPU. I'm almost tempted to try and find a non-destructive way to remove them and see if they're even necessary.

I mean, if I wanted to upgrade my boot SSD (maybe to a 2TB WD SN850X or Corsair MP600 Pro LPX), my GPU has to come out. Same with plugging in more SATA devices, which I have plans to do eventually.

Although, with those specific SSDs, I don't know if the board's built-in SSD cooling would be adequate. Removing that would probably help with access to the PCIe lock.

Last time I bought a DP-HDMI cable (my monitor doesn't have DP, modern graphics cards have only 1 HDMI port), I don't get any display past the BIOS screen. This time around, I bought a proper DP-HDMI adapter, it does display out when it enters Windows, and I'm able to get 75fps on Superposition (it's a 75Hz monitor).

I wish I was able to have the same trade. Intel cards are annoyingly expensive here. It's like I can get more than two used AMD cards for the same price and they both are more powerful than the Intel's device.

Here in Hungary the retail price is: (with VAT)
Asrock A380 160 USD
Asrock A770 8Gb 344 USD
Intel A770 16Gb 430 USD
Asrock A750 8Gb 288 USD
Intel A750 8Gb 320 USD
(this is the highest VAT on the world (27%), and hungarian government is with the russian side of the war so the prices are higher than the average Eu prices, that is why i am very close to moving to another country)

Right now I have a 6750XT in my cart. The price is $458 ($338 US). That is cheaper than any 6700XT. It is a refurb but I am comfortable with that.

Technically the wife bought it for me with my tax return. I’ll probably return it, but not before walking around with it for a bit.

Technically the wife bought it for me with my tax return. I’ll probably return it, but not before walking around with it for a bit.

She probably meant for you to install it in her PC...

Earlier today I picked up this XFX Radeon RX 7900 XT Speedster Merc310 for £571 only 2 months old and only thing missing is the outer box and the sack bracket but saved about £275 compared to a new card and right now the RX 7900 XT Hellhound from PowerColor is on sale for £792 so I still think I got the merc310 for a good price.

My wallet ain't happy and I am still trying to sell my PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil card.

Right now the RX 7900 XT is running Heaven on loop at 1.010V and only reaches 56-57c at 50% fan speed hot spot temps are jumping 80-85c not sure how good these temps are.

They are really good. No need to worry. Congratulations on the upgrade!

Thanks been running the card at 50% fan speed then I can tolerate it and for the past 40mins gaming some GTA V single player and it ran fine it's nice I can do a custom fan with zero rpm I just love AMD :lovetpu:
