They should have just re-released the RX580, what the hell. It'd probably cost them less to build, at the same performance. I guess they think (and they're sadly, probably right) that users are too stupid to check reviews before buying a card, and a 6000-series card has GOT to beat a 500-series, yeah?
Anyone that picks up a low-end gpu normally doesn't give a shit about performance and probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Those that are concerned about performance read reviews, or in today's age watch a 20 minute.

World's oldest man dies at 112, Guinness World Records says.

Should have been vegan, he would have lived to 125 according to the AHS2 Study - average of 13 years longer life
125 years old.
1. Some of your children will be dead.
2. Many of your wives will have died.
3. You will have gotten to attend the funerals of your parents, your brothers and sisters and some of their offspring.
4. You will have outlived everyone you ever cared about.

No one is chomping at the bit to live that old.


Betty White said she doesn’t bother with the usual healthy foods. “I try to avoid anything green,” she explained. “I think it’s working.”
She lived to be a few days short of 100.

Looking at the spec sheet really left a lot to be desired but I hate how a super budget card gets slagged for having 4GB of VRAM. There are a lot of things wrong with this card but it shouldn't be shocking that a card at the bottom the of the stack comes with super cut down hardware.

Microsoft negotiated a purchase price of $95/share. They didn’t do it expecting the share price to magically jump to $95.
That’s not how those things work.

With over 320 million people in the United States I can see how meeting a few on a drunken tour while watching Dr Phil gives you a complete understanding. You're unfucking believable.

As for the ex, she's swell. She had some choice words for you but aren't fit for print. But what's even funnier, she lived in the Netherlands.

honestly blue just run a cryptominer on the days it gets really cold. it sounds like your house is well insulated anyway, so it wouldn't need a lot of extra help to get back to tolerable. and you make some money back in the process. the room i keep mine is at least 10 degrees warmer than outside, and that's with keeping the window open
That's a novel approach.
But who wants to listen to a jet engine in their living room.

You silly "this doesn't happen in Europe" people are aware that the Ubisoft sexual harassment scandal occurred in Europe as well right?
That the Paris headquarters were described by employees as being like a "fraternity house", etc.
Are you using facts and logic again. Seph, shame on you.
I read some of these posts to my ex and the first thing she said was misogynists never change. They all sound like a broken record.

May the fleas of a thousand camels invade the crotch of the people responsible for the full screen ad that takes over a person's computer and tells them that Windows Defender has "blah blah blah'ed" their computer with a phone number to call.

A lady I have known since high school, from a well to do ranching family, just called me.
She's a lovely woman who recently had a heart attack and has less years in front of her than she does behind.
Naturally she called the number and of course she let them get on her computer. She'll be dropping it off tomorrow.

And one other thing about those vermin who take advantage of the elderly, may their arms be too short to scratch.

No can do. There's an HOA rule against new ones, though if you have one from before the rule you are grandfathered in.

Upgrade to a heat pump. They are super efficient now and you get both heating and cooling from one system. Modern cold weather ones can still extract heat from -12F conditions outside more efficiently than other systems. And they also have backup electric coils for fallback or needing rapid heating.
That's the option that most appeals to me. I need to dig into it to figure out how doable this is considering the land we own behind our unit extends about 6-8 feet and is almost entirely patio. There's room out there for a central air unit, but most heat pump diagrams look to me like they take some land. Apparently they also can make good use of a pond, and we have one of those, but unfortunately it's communal.
Blue,I’m sure you’ve looked at minisplits. They don’t take up much exterior space and they are available with multiple heads.
Examples
Big
Little
Dad and Mom installed a minisplit at their house last year. Looks to be about the size of the small pic you posted: about 3 feet wide, 1.5 feet deep, and 2 feet tall. Sits right out side the basement door in the back yard. Very innocuous and takes up little space. Sits under the roof awning a few inches from the wall to keep it out of the weather.
What's the coldest it gets where they live. And are they happy with how it heats on those cold winter nights.

Now if you brought them to Hawaii to live with y'all there's no need to respond.
