A personal computer is a general-purpose computer, whose size, capabilities, and original sale price makes it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer operator. This contrasted with the batch processing or time-sharing models which allowed larger, more expensive minicomputer and mainframe systems to be used by many people, usually at the same time. Large data processing systems require a full-time staff to operate efficien... View more [Wikipedia]

    That moment when changing the boot order bricks your operating system and none of the solutions on the Internet work except "re-install Windows".

    Silent Gamer Sounds good Gries. I too find a little delusion to be good for the soul

    I just cleaned the innards of my PC. Man, there was so much dust in there, it was quite scary. I should clean my PC every month instead of two times every year. I also implemented my brother's Blu-Ray drive. Works like a charm! This is the first time I actually did something all by myself on my rig. I'm so proud of me!

    rockshard PhD One time I was about to clean the inside of our old PC (since we were upgrading the memory anyway so I thought now would be a good time) and my dad was like no you'll spread all the dust around to the other components. It was an oddly compelling argument and so I left the PC dirty. o.o

    Waluigifan ! Well, I used an air compressor (4-5 bar) to blow the dust out of the case. It worked really well.

    rockshard PhD whoa, heavy duty. I just had one of those compressed air in a can.

    Maybe spending 2 grand on a PC isn't really worth it considering
    - I'm only playing indie games and the occasional sim on PC anyway
    - having no PC allows me to focus my attention on my other hobbies and or consoles

    Sandy Vich I meant mouse/keyboard and worded it badly, but yes, much greater options for remapping keys is another big plus, though ironically I'd much prefer that versatility for console gamepads.

    Husky Wing Yeye I feel you hun. Steam\'s integrated that controller feature (first Steam Controller, then DS4, not sure if the options for other controllers are out yet)

    Husky Wing But in the future, consoles should adopt something like the Xbone Elite, incorporate rebinding as well.

    Sandy Vich My desktop has a whopping 12 items on it, and I could probably delete half of them.

    wait wait wait. I could, like, get a pc from alternate.de but without a GPU and simply plug in the GTX660 from my alienware x51, right?

    Husky Wing (and so long as it's compatible with the mobo on the new PC)

    maybe I should spend a fortune on a new PC. Maybe I shouldn't.
    But I'm going to do it anyway, probably.

    Gries He Frankly speaking I don't really see the need for upgrading my PC (yet). What else could I possibly gain from spending two grand on sth that I couldn't achieve on my GTX 660? I mostly play indie games anyway..

    Fuck yeah. I just saved myself €1800

    Not Important We went to Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Morocco, pretty much every place in Europe, the US, and Uruguay. Axersia well it was the dying wish of my wife so to me it didn't really seem that much of a waste.

    Richard Pale Sounds like the best use of savings I've heard about in a long while. I hope you both loved it.

    Gries He That thing looks ridiculous and is the opposite of what I want, but thanks anyway. FYI, here's a gtx 1070 node 202 setup that you were so sure of would totally "not gonna work dude": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmASlZQzjb0 Suit yourself, breh

    Demi Axersia I know it'll fit, that's not the issue. The reason consoles work is because tons and tons of R&D went into designing everything with that specific hardware in mind, and even then they fuck up (see: Xbox 360). If you're gonna assemble your own PC, it's up to you to make sure your build isn't gonna run into issues later down the line. Again, wouldn't personally put a gaming PC into a case that small, but it's entirely up to you.

    Waluigifan ! Airflow is also an important thing. You want a case with good airflow. Otherwise you will run into cooling issues. Which results in worse performance / lifetime of your components.

    "reboot and select a proper boot device"

    That's all there is on screen when I put a USB thimbstick with Windows 10 on it into my computer.

    Demi Axersia Have you tried pressing F12 and selecting USB from there?

    Gries He USB what?

    1 year ago

    Demi Axersia If you hit F12 on boot, it should list your your USB stick there.
