  1. You're a miracle worker! You've actually made a dogbone wrench useful.
  2. I have an Asus A7VBX if you want it. It has an Athlon XP 2000 installed, I think it's a 2000. It has a 333mhz FSB and 2 SATA ports. It was one of the first boards with on board SATA. I replaced a 266mhz FSB board with this just to get the SATA ports. I'm guessing it works, but I have no idea. The CMOS battery is probably dead. It's about 18 years old. Since your into old computers. Don't know it you have a Socket A yet....I think it's a Socket A.
  3. I'm still using my 1700x with the segfault bug. I'm not using Gentoo anymore, so it doesn't affect me as much. I already have a new mobo and 64GB of DDR-4000 that I bought last November.
  4. Now you can get Ryzen 5000 series CPU's for less than MSRP at Microcenter and during a sale on NewEgg. I want to upgrade but if I can't get a GPU at MSRP, than what's the point.
  5. Some recommends to buy are based on the short term. Intel's Ex-dividend date is Nov 4. Buy some Intel stock, hope it doesn't go down between now and Nov 4 and you get free money when the divided pays. AMD has never paid a quarterly dividend. Plus they have a GPU that will be released soon. It's going to sell no matter how good or bad it is just because of the market we're in.
  6. This is a rip-off. It's not even the full word.
  7. They're not serious about making good games, they're serious about making money. Buying as many game studios as they can and locking them to their platform is how Microsoft has chosen to accomplish that goal. Odds are any of them with online content will probably require a Microsoft account for access which aligns with their other goal of collecting as much data from users as possible.
  8. Android is open source, it's what enables these kinds of things. Google should have released Android with a GPL License, like it's included Linux Kernel, instead of an Apache License. It would have forced Microsoft to release the source code for changes they may have made for this to work.
  9. It's only a good deal if you play enough to justify paying a monthly fee. My guess is eventually once Microsoft gobbles up enough studios, they all become Windows Store exclusives using UWP. Microsoft's wet dream is to have a walled garden like Apple's.
  10. The last thing we need is gaming studios being consolidated into few and few companies with more and more exclusives. Ohh.....and the only way there will ever be a good Ghost Recon game is if it returns to being a first person tactical shooter again, not this 3rd person, bullet sponge, loot shooter crap.
  11. That can't be right. DRM is for our benefit and never causes any problems what so ever. /s
  12. Don't Starve Together LAN & Online Co-oP
  13. Intel's oneAPI was released in Sept 2020. Over the past year, they've been adding support for their upcoming GPU into the Linux kernel and Intel ray tracing support for Vulkan.
  14. Don't lose any sleep over it. Windows 11 is just lipstick on a pig.
