    Very good to hear. I saw Seasonic recommended in many places and the specs seemed to make sense. I thought I'd go for a gold rated seeing as it wasn't really that much more than lower rated PSUs,...

    Got the card, painlessly, but it turns out my PSU doesn't have a PCi-E cable, so ... that's kind of a problem. I guess I couldn't imagine it not having such a cable, so I didn't actually check, but I...

    Well, I discovered there's a GLS pickup right next door, far closer than the post office (and of course free too), so now I've ordered what is most likely a far more expensive card than is sensible,...

    agh. Now things went from 'only one store to choose from' to 'too many stores to choose from'. I know that's a good thing, but on top of 'too many cards to choose from' it leads to Too Many...

    yeah, I guess so. You'd just think there'd be a lot of people who'd appreciate being able to talk to someone reasonably knowledgeable when buying computer stuff, but maybe not.

    I've so far decided on an ASUS with STRIX, actually. Bit more expensive than most of the cards, but not by that much.

    I should be able to afford a decent 1050ti, but a 1060 would be too much, also because I'd need a new PSU on top.


    Thanks. I was kind of thinking of ASUS, but since the last Nvidia card I...

    Thanks all. I'll see if I can find some comparisons (not too much luck finding anything recent so far, but I haven't spent that much time yet either).
  9. How much does brand matter these days? (graphics cards)

    So, after very, very, very long deliberation I may be at a point where I'm about ready to start to think about actually preparing to maybe buy that 1050ti.
    Not many shops to choose from anymore, so...

    I don't think I ever finished Doom and Doom 2, but I spent a couple of years (around 1998-99, I think) making maps for them. Admittedly, much of that time was spent starting over (and over and over)...

    It was upped to a whole ten people in GW2: Heart of Thorns, but that's only for raids. Most other stuff is still only five people.

    ... I can't imagine forty people. It must be utterly chaotic...

    I had a whole forty hours last weekend where my connection was dead. That was frustrating.
    It's not even that I'm afraid of missing something or anything obvious like that, it's just being unable...

    Finished Black Hawk Down by Dan Bowden.

    I don't know if it's that, really. It seems like the Blake character has a lot of things she doesn't really want to try, but then someone needs whatever and she tries it anyway and finds out she...

    The sneaky thing is that she doesn't get that power until around book 11 or 12, so it can kind of feel like bait and switch; you get into the characters and the universe and then it suddenly turns...

    I don't mind it either. It can expand on characters quite a bit in ways other types of interactions can't do as well, and sometimes it just fits a story.

    It's a bit puzzling. I normally don't read that much at home because the computer distracts me, so it's usually only a few pages a day, but the past month I've been reading quite a lot (not nearly as...

    Seems like the older I get, the more I go for the 'B-movie' equivalents when it comes to literature. On some level I find that a bit odd (and maybe a bit embarrassing too), but perhaps I spent so...

    I don't think I've bought any since sometime last year (and I may only have bought two or three that whole year), so it certainly feels like it.

    I was going to buy Mad Max in the Steam sale, but checked ITAD and saw that Bundle Stars had it for ~3 Euro less. So it seems like they're worth checking for that sort of thing, but, like you, I...

    If you have more than five inventory bag slots (including the default) on a character, you've bought them for gems.

    Infinite felt like one of those old movie stages where everything was just facades with nothing behind them.
    Rushed development phase also shows far too starkly.
