#1784

I would happily pay for music if I could buy it in FLAC. I dont care about physical media. I do want to support artist and I have bought music on google play that I have pirated copies of already because I dont want to feel like a total piece of shit.


#1785

I’ve been using Bandcamp.

#1786

Bandcamp lets you download in FLAC IIRC, of course the band has to be using it.


#1787

I have an old Zombie-PC here.
It is a mixture of found parts as is.

Currently has an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and HD5570 in it, should I swap in an Athlon II X3 450 and HD 7750?

#1788

if the parts just appeared to you… sure… if you have to buy them… no


#1789

All on hand, just questionable conditions ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


#1790

gotta verify they work tho right?


#1791

I hope to find that out soon.
Edit: Found the questionable-quality Asus AM2+/AM3 board, ready to transplant!


#1792

The X3 should destroy the X2 in everything. And the 7750 is still supported. Unlike the 5570…


#1793

I have hit a little snag: Can´t find mounting hardware for the cooler I have on hand.


#1794

It’s absolutely the same cooling system for AM 2, 3, FM 1, 2, 2+… Do whatever you find it will fit…


#1795

Well… the thing to screw in the other thing is missing. Could use Zipties or an FM2 stock cooler.


#1796

alright dumb question, for my next PCs Storage; should I use:

  • 500Gb m.2 and 1tb m.2
  • 500Gb m.2 and 2tb HDD

Get a 2TB Micron 1100 SSD.


#1798

Honestly, that depends on how much data you want to store locally.


#1799

I’d vote for
1x m.2 1TB
2x SSD 1TB
4x HDD 8TB (or more if the mobo has more SATA ports)

but that’s not an option…


#1800

M.2 is for the OS and all my movies/music/documents/small games, the other storage options will be for video editing and saving videos, and storing games from Steam and Uplay and Origin.
@TheDiddilyHorror I wish, wallet aint that rich yet lol :skull:


#1801

Start small. You can always add some later down the road. I started with a 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD. Now I’m at a total of 18TB (int.+ext. drives).
SSDs are now cheaper than ever before and next week is Black Friday. There are gonna be some nice deals for sure.
