Look at those two beauties, with a brand new case. The XP looks awesome in that white case.

Ready to rock n´roll.

I switched the monitor back again to the asus monitor, since i´ll have to change the resolution in most games that have 1280x960p since the HP Omen doesn´t support that resolution, and i get an error in return. ( NFS Carbon for ex. )

What the HP Omen has is 1280x800p which is different, the asus monitor doesn´t have that one.

If i were to put those games in 1280x720p, then everything will be compatible when switching back.

Both monitors support 1280x720p.

That´s about it.

The other case is where i keep my Win10, which is 100% custom and offline. ( a pirate bay station basically )


Atrocious formatting aside, I'm pretty jelly. I haven't had an opportunity to get a new computer in 5 years.


lol sorry about that extreme resolution mate.
It´s the camera´s fault.

I mean yeah.
This is part of a collection anyway.
None of those two desktops are connected to the internet, major rule to preserver and keep what is already established. I´m not a multiplayer fag either way, i play solo all the time. For internet use, i got a crappy laptop that does the job tbh


I meant your post, why are you adding like 5 lines between your sentences?


lagg probably


What you're playing in it? Every time I think about getting a new computer for gaming I spend 20 minutes trying to come up with at least 4 games I would like to play but never get more than 2 down.


My current set up is a television that has android. I have a mouse would OSU run on this set up well? It struggles to play video files though


Well, i play games like Carmageddon, Re-Volt, Powerslide, Rollcage, FlatOut, old NFS games,Colin Mcrae Rally 04/05, Red Faction, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Painkiller, Quake, Unreal, Blood, Age Of Empires, American Conquest, Cossacks, Stalker, Fear, old GTA games etc… Most of the time im gaming on the XP instead of the modern OS, because of those games.


That´s quite peculiar tho.
Never thought about that.

Waiting for graphics cards to be cheaper. Why are they so expensive?!?


I see they already getting a slightly very small bit cheaper, gotta wait more


>Why are they so expensive
Crypto currencies, they've gotten ridiculously expensive in the last couple years because people buy them in bulk to mine bitcoin and the like.


My setup is a PS3 BC, A PS5, a xbox one series x and a Switch all side by side, but I'm not gonna post it because I don't want to dox myself.

I don't play on my potato PC anything except visual novels and emulators.


China banning crypto-currencies; maybe the price of gf cards will go down now…

I don't need a good graphics card to run sprite-based games.


do you play fighting games exclusively?


Gaming PCs will be banned in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont and Washington due to power consumption regulations adopted by those states. NPC console plebs to be unaffected.
Land of the free, home of the niggers faggots and kikes.


??? source?


Marxism will gradually cause technology to advance backwards. We'll get to experience what it was like to be alive during the 1980's. In a few generations, society will have de-industrialized and returned to feudalism. The weak will perish. It's what this world needs, honestly.



So? They can't ban people from building their own high performance PC from separate components.

All they can do is ban high end prepackaged stuff like Alienware from being sold.


They showed their intention. Laws are generally changed later to fit such workarounds. It could be made so you need to make an application for restricted hardware


>They can't ban people from building their own high performance PC from separate components.
They could do the same shit they do with guns to eventually make it practically impossible or requiring CA compliant low power components.


Their intentions are weak and flimsy just like this law. Their own research showed consoles use more power but they didn’t do anything about those. And other high energy computing systems used for things like modeling and AI are going untouched. The suits who drafted and signed this bill are idiots unaware of what they’re doing, and so will be inept at any kind of enforcement.


>720p in 2021
bruh this has to be a joke


Bruh no 8k 360hz ultra wide ips dual setup this is like current year bruh

Using my setup to make gif files.


Gross wiz! That succubus has a butt! Yuck
Also, I hope you're not using that guide. GIMP can probably do all of that automatically through the command line.

Hello Whispering-Car-Commercial generation.

Disclaimer: actual funni joek post.

The latitude 2100 post isn't a joke though above this post.

>I watch the news and don't want other people accidentally breaking the law!
Stop trying to pass down abuse please.

Are there still graphic card shortages?


Not if you have money and are willing to pay far more then pre-wu flu.
They are expensive as fuck but they are available again.


they sell 3080 ti for roughly two and half thousands dollars on average. In my shithole country (Ukraine).
The local minimum monthly wage is like 300 bucks. Just to give you the perspective. Maybe it's better in USA


Yeah, it's no where near that bad in the US.
It's just 50-80% more expensive, which is still in reach of nearly anyone with a steady minimal wage or close to it job if they save/budget for 6 months or so. Significantly less if they don't have bills n shit to pay.

Higher than normal prices is a sign of shortages..
Guess it's time to bite the bullet and pay more for pc parts *wallet sigh*


Why spend money on GPU's and shit if all the new games are shit and the few ones that aren't don't need a beefy GPU? Just get game pass for cheap and you can run most new games on a literal potato.


was going to type the exact same thing but deleted it lol, I don't know if thats true because the system requirements keep going up. I was able to run the super early versions of rust legacy and 7 days to die with 4gb ram and intel hd.
"upgraded" two years ago to 8gb ram/entry level gpu before the price hike and keep playing them but now they require a 6 core cpu, 4gb vram and 12gb ram minimum or recommended :/


maybe. but what if the retail shoip will start just horde them and sit on them. Surely the buyer will pay more anyways. I suspect they will keep those high prices even after the shortages are no longer the case.


You do realize that storing inventory cost money and space is limited.
If they aren't selling it then every day they hold it they are losing money because it is clogging up the inventory of stuff they could be using to make money.
Also with how fast PC hardware changes and updates the market can change fast enough that they would be left holding the tech equivalent of spoiled goods, when they would have profited the most from selling them while the demand was highest.

To put it even more simply, in the real physical world doing something like that would cost too much in the short term, and lead to less money in the long run then just selling them as they get them in.


They can make more than enough money just keeping the prices at 5-10x forever because storing small boxes sitting on a pallet isn't hard or expensive. Crypto niggers and scalpers will keep buying all available cards at any price anyway. Meanwhile I see regular people fighting over trash, paying premium for second hand mid tier hardware that's two or three generations old, that was abused to hell by miners and is likely to fail shortly, no refunds. I don't see a way out of this when a shitty new 1650 costs more than a 980ti did back when I bought it at launch.
It's not even about money at this point. Nothing is about money anymore. Filthy proles like me who make close to minimum wage are supposed to be kept not only poor but completely miserable too. Unworthy plebeians will never again be allowed to have access to easily entered hobbies where any of us could save up for top quality gear and be content with his setup for years. Distractions from the horror of modern commoner's life are forbidden and that's the way it's supposed to stay. The virus panic is never going away, the elites and middle class want to keep us locked up, terrorized and miserable.


>They can make more than enough money just keeping the prices at 5-10x forever
You seem not to realize that retailers have to pay 5-10x more as well to obtain those cards.
The margense for electronics aren't anywhere near as good as you seem to think they are at the retail level.
> storing small boxes sitting on a pallet isn't hard or expensive
Yes it is. I can tell you know literally nothing about inventory of a even semi active location. There is no space to just indefinably store things to speculate on price at a retail location. A store isn't a warehouse, working around something not in rotation is actually quite difficult when the backroom fills up, and space is at a premium.

>Crypto niggers and scalpers will keep buying all available cards at any price anyway

This is also dead wrong.
Their intrest is directly proportionate to whatever the crypto market does. When it is down they are infamous for abandoning ship, to the point that it's part of the reason they keep getting kicked out of countries and counties.
They also don't demand just any and all cards avalable at any price. That is retarded and you are exaggerating.

Rest of your post is foolish doom and gloom with no relation to reality.


> second hand mid tier hardware that's two or three generations old, that was abused to hell by miners and is likely to fail shortly, no refunds.
most miners underclock and undervolt and are obsessed with low temps and cooling
most gamers overclock and run their shit hot in horribly ventilated cases and there are tons of temp fluctuations


fuck, good thing i don't live in the US
