I'd go with an Xbox One controller over the old Xbox 360 controller

Oh oops I misread the aggressive part

Yes, he isn't defenseless. No, fighting him over this isn't a good thing. Good moral, but bad way of actually doing it.

Don't start making excuses of "well he was also being childish so that excuses me of being so / I don't mind it", just because others did it doesn't make it okay. The guy with the dog isn't in the right here, but you wanting to beat him up and threatening him doesn't make you right either, just ESH for this (everyone's ****** here)

Also good luck trying to steal someone's dog before / after a fight, a dog which was already acting aggressive while on leash lol

My initial point still stands to this comment. Plus, violence won't solve anything in this situation. Maybe shaming them, embarrassing or whatever would. Just threatening and wanting to hurt him like a child won't fix the issue. Violence would just get you in trouble and most likely make the guy think "look what my dog caused, piece of ****"

No offense but you sure are being pretty overly aggressive over this. Being mad and offended over it is fine, but wanting to kick his teeth in and threaten him? Kinda OTT

Forum Topic "Don’t you find mails in rebate annoying?"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 3 points 2 days ago

I find them annoying when someone has a budget of X amount of money, and someone suggests a part or entire part list that uses mail-in rebates, which means the part or part list is out of budget. Soooooo many people I've seen think mail-in rebates are instant savings, instead of how they truly are, pay full price and wait a few months.

By work I mean be the best match performance wise. Opteron would be the last resort imo, super weak gaming processor and only 2GB RAM on XP

Try the Phenom first, if it doesn't work, then I'd go with the Pentium

For me, as an office PC, this would last a hell of a long time. I can just add another stick of RAM or upgrade the CPU in the future if I needed to, which this list has potential upgrading in mind

Also I don't hoard tabs in browsers lul

Since you're not going to be gaming, the integrated video in the Athlon 200ge / Ryzen 3 2200g / Ryzen 5 2400g are absolutely plenty in your usage

Be sure the adapter has bluetooth too, or get two adapters, one wifi, one bt (the adapter you put in is wired, not wireless btw)

Forum Topic "Home Computer Help"

i mean tbh this is a home office pc, not really supposed to be flashy and show-offy, at least it's mATX now but, doesn't have WiFi and Bluetooth like what the OP needs

Forum Topic "Home Computer Help"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 2 points 11 days ago

To have bluetooth, you'll need a wireless adapter that has it built it, or a separate adapter entirely. You can just use this WiFi / Bluetooth PCIe card so you can have both in one

Forum Topic "Home Computer Help"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 3 points 11 days ago

Oh heck, I could recommend my "The Basic Build" I made out of boredom about a few weeks ago

Plenty powerful for a basic streaming and home computer, has a good APU which should be able to handle 4K content, single 8GB stick of RAM, which you could upgrade in the future, good budget 240GB SSD, good case, PSU, WiFi card if you need it, and a single 120mm PWM fan (which should be placed on the side panel, optimal airflow and cooling for the passive cooler, the said fan on the lowest speed should be well more than enough, and thus silent)

It's also $330 before taxes and shipping.

Should be more than enough for home/office uses, compact and near silent, easily upgradeable too

If you need more power, a Ryzen 3 2200g or Ryzen 5 2400g would work, but you can omit the passive cooler and use stock since those two are a bit too hot for it

Forum Topic "Computer build for virtualization"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 13 days ago

I'd go with this

If you straight up only need the GPU to put out a display, and not to game or compute, then you can change it from a RX 570 to a GT 1030. Doing that will save you about 50 bucks, at cost of 3D gaming / GPU compute performance.

TBH this is a pretty imbalanced list, wastes money in certain places where it shouldn't. Also mail-in rebates don't save money, you still pay the full price up front.

Forum Topic "New to all this, $750 budget"

Not an opinion, it's a fact that the corsair ones are way better than the bargain bin sickleflow.

Plus, this is more for the OP to see

Incorrect. The corsair fans are leagues better than the sickleflow

Forum Topic "which cpu should i buy?"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 13 days ago

Maybe, search on YouTube "Athlon 200ge Vega 3 fortnite" and see how it performs

Forum Topic "which cpu should i buy?"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

The 200ge will mop the floor with the AMD A-8 9600. Way better GPU, MUCH better architecture (it's actually Zen, the 9600 is bulldozer), and much more.

The 200ge's GPU can handle AAA gaming at low, 1080p / 720p, and get roughly 25 - 35fps if you pair it with 8GB of high speed RAM, so it'll be barely okay for that. For lighter and older games, it should be passable.

Forum Topic "Budget Build"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 2 points 15 days ago

hardly, most likely it'll be 1-5fps difference

Forum Topic "Budget Build"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 2 points 15 days ago

The second list is a DAMN good one, I'd get that, maybe even throw in a Arctic Freezer 33 cooler if you can afford it and need it

Forum Topic "Entire Gaming Setup"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 3 points 15 days ago

600 - 700 is a good price, only up to 700 ish if the monitors are damn good, same with the keyboard and mouse

Also calling that PC a gaming PC is such a sham tbh

Forum Topic "IT IS DONE"

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

Here's a good PCIe one. It's both Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac as well

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320333

Guessing with the images, when you install this into the PCIe slot and do the antenna thing, you plug in the USB header cable (which comes with the card) into the card itself, and into your board, so BT will work

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

Looks damn good to me! Just remember that if you need to use WiFi / Bluetooth, this build can't use either without a USB / PCIe card
