Happy with my 9600k running at 5k and my 1660ti. Runs a rifts more than adequate. 3600x should beat it with a vega 56 but it simply doesnt.

Took my rifts to a mates house and it was quite jerky in a few games. Sure the benchmarka might be the same but quality was not there.

Indeed. I still pull some ancient games out, i think star wars is the oldest regular game I play (outside of emulator stuff).this wouldn't be possible with SaaS

Born and raised in Dumfries but living in the lakes now. I can confirm that some of those piss me off too. I love haggis and i can guarantee most people who slag it off have never tried it, in fact i have served haggis instead of sausages before now at breakfast and people loved it (carnivore friends I should add). I do own a kilt but dont wear it often, i do wear it breezy and do get asked what i wear underneath it.

In the days of all flash arrays it is becoming a non issue anyway. Our 3420 array is stupid quick and that uses raid 5 with 3.84tb sas ssds. You would need your head reading if you used raid5 on 3.84tb spinning rust drives.

Even the write penalty is a non issue and for our db and exchange log volumes they are mega.

My work laptop is an alienware i7 1070. I wouldn't have purchased it myself but it fills the role for a portable riftS capable machine. It is a good machine though, its fast enough, has a a pair of nvme and a sata ssd. It does have the possibility of an external gfx too but that would defeat the purpose of a portable VR capable machine.

Some gaming laptops are actual gaming laptops but I agree that the ones that don't even have dedicated cards should be taken around back and shot.

As for a 9750 1660ti laptop, thats a true 6core cpu and a good gfx. For 1k$ that sounds like a good deal. My desktop is a 1660ti 9600k and flies so that laptop would be a nice compact gaming machine. I suppose it depends why you would buy a laptop over a base unit in the first place, in my youth I travelled about a lot so a decent laptop would have been great.

Just as many killing have been sanctioned (by the military) by Saudi Arabia and India. But they are allies so its OK right? I'm talking border skirmishes not 'war on terror' catchall.

W10 works well on 4gb ram core 2 duos as long as you have a cheap ssd. We run about 30 at work. Obviously office PCs.

I couldnt get into dcs in vr as there are too many keys to press. I couodnt remember everything on my hotas that i had bound. Dcs is too much of a simulator for my tiny brain (in VR, im ok outside of VR with a checklist)

Couldnt agree more. Same with vhs and dvd sharing in days gone by. I wouldnt have bought that movie/series anyway, my mate lent it to me to see if i liked it and vice versa.

I have a rift s and a 1660ti and a 6600k (soon to be 9600k), its hard to put a price on my pc as it has continually evolved over the years. Runs vr really well. Games I play are elite dangerous, payday 2, beat saber, fallout 4, skyrim, star trek bridge commander, lara croft. I play between 1 and 4 hours per session - i can get into some really long ED sessions.

I still use the original xbox controller in my pc occasionally, they were usb (with a little cble soldering) and it works. I rarely use controllers, w10 recognises it so no need to buy another. My xbox was only used for a few games it was mainly hacked up and used as an xbmc device as they were perfect size at the time and looked much better under the tv than a minipc.

I seem to remember sony claiming the same due to the processing power of the ps2 far outstripping what was available on the pc.

Unlikely. Plus, if there are cross platform games then these will be (drum roll) cross platform! PS only exclusives that are coded purely foe the PS will remain so.

300 employees isnt a small outfit. I employ 30 and we have someone (who isnt me) run the IT. IT is an important aspect of just about any business, a telemarketing company would have a mass of database requirements alone. Plus phones, web presence etc. Insane to have no basic cold backups.

I use ubiquiti unifis (blue 5ghz). 2.4 is fine but 5 just wont penetrate effectively enough. The unifis replaced cheaper tplink stuff. Router is a pfsense install on a small chassis build.

Ive been here a very long time. Lurking from even longer. Ive no issues with blues at all but there are some idiots here who should just go.

I remember when blue put the ignore facility here, it was in the 'spacecaptain' era. He simply kept remaking accounts. Those were the only ones on my ignore list. I have no idea what spacecaptain's account is called these days but I have a hunch.

As for the story, seriously dick move by the porn company. Get the girls stoned and drunk, gwt them to sign a contract then post online and ruin their lives. Suicide is no laughing matter and I really feel sorry for those girls.

Director of IT should be sued. In this day and age it is childs play to virtualise and have the host back up to a target that the guests cannot see. The host should look at a ring fenced wsus server for updates. Not only that but there should be rotating removable backups for events such as ransomware or fire. Worst case? You need to use veeam to immediately spool up an older VM -this takes seconds.

Hell, spool up a cold azure server for rotating cold backups.

This would be CHEAPER for most companies as your windows server licence will be good for 2 vms rather than one physical.

5ghz is bad enough going through our stone house walls. 6ghz is pointless trying.
