    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    I started, once again, actively tracking advances in pc hardware about a year ago, when my pc started showing signs of no longer being up to the task for my needs.

    "I will buy whatever the hell I want, when I want, the rest of you penniless peasants should mind your own business because it doesn't concern you! :mad:" This type of response to people being confronted with buying hardware that the general public has consensus of being "bullshit levels of...

    Has my (what used to be top of the line) PC really gotten THAT old?

    The most recent news on the latest hardware market on the enthusiast level is quite depressing - horrible pricing, abysmal power efficiency, coolers so big that it looks downright disgusting, and you need to spend as much for aftermarket cooling as you did for the hardware itself. This is a...

    PoP!_os and Win10 dual boot success... well sort of... not really! But it works! Sort of... LOL!

    After Months of flapping my gums I finally did it. I have two operating systems on two sepparate hard drives. Both boot fine. Except the problem is that they both treat each other like the stinker at the party and downright refuse to acknowledge each other's existence. According to the...

    The Ctrl+Alt+Del of Linux?

    I do a lot of tinkering. For whatever application that does not have a linux alternative, I try to get it running on Linux. And that means crashes and freezes.

    Dual Boot potatoes

I used USBImager to get the windows ISO loaded into a flash drive, now its refusing to recognize it. Poking around in my bios has only gotten me...
