Okay so my old pc has decided it hates me and has cracked the shits. It won’t start up. It probably died of a broken heart with abandonment issues. Or that freaking scorching heatwave fried its brainbox.
It’s at the PC health retreat getting a new hard drive and hopefully it will enjoy it’s days at the spa. It might even forgive me for leaving it in a closed area without the windows open during Summer (I’m nothing like those parents who leave their kids in the car while they are at the casino gambling away their food budget). I was at least at home sweltering right along with it.
Here’s hoping it has not suffered total amnesia and will give up withholding the precious data stored within. Or it just might meet the wrong end of a sledgehammer.
Can you believe it had the audacity to flash me with its pretty blue lights that used to match Razer Black Widow I? Maybe it was protesting the uncoordinated Black Widow II’s ghastly green illuminations. Who knows?
Sooooooooooo that means still no gaming or discord yet. But we really need to finalize the specs of my new rig so that I can order it. We really have to ensure the new system can handle the heat in my corner of the world. So cooling systems of utmost importance.
Fingers crossed Ole PC senior has not suffered a complete system meltdown or poor Husband won’t be getting my cast offs. Oops I mean Hand-me-downs, no I mean much pre-loved dear once faithful friend that does NOT bare grudges of neglectful ownership.
@Senzoba was not me that someone saw pop into discord. Trust me you will know when I finally do get in there. The hair on the back of your neck will rise as you sense a shift in the dynamics. As others realize what’s happening there may be a mass exodus, there may be some stampede like behaviour as people fear the worse and rush out the door to flee the oncoming disaster that they can feel heading towards them. There might be a rush of AFK’s. You might see a flood of pings as most flock to find the self deafen mode (if discord supports those features). So much to learn. Either way you will be able to tell it’s happening by the behaviour of those around you. Bit like the way wildlife behave before the oncoming storm.
@Alphea @Duvago @JGP would love to talk to you about finalizing the build pretty please with cherries on top and chocolate sprinkles
BIG Cheesy Grin It needs to compliment the ASUS ROG bits I’m getting. The budget is completely up the Wahzoo. Will have to keep the PC cost to under $4000.
JGP I loved how you put the builds together at PLE, from that I can just click add to cart. I’d like lyns video card. Duvago’s motherboard. Needs lots of Light Bling with the ability to change colour according to temperature. Oh and I think the I5 will be good enough for me. And definitely not the Comet Lake range. Coffee Lake will be fine too. I’m don’t really want multiple hard drives. Only games, and I only need room for SWTOR, WOW, DCUO, RIFT and ESO. Maybe a couple of others in the future. So one SSD drive is plenty. I’d like to fill all 3 RAM slots(do they still put 3?). This is my very very very last PC ever, so we must get it perfect with both brains and bling. Emphasis on the BLING.
Can we just type the name of the components directly into a reply so we don’t have to divert off by clicking outside this page. Then once all individual bits and bling are decided then we, as in JGP, can put the custom build into PLE and then we can okay it and I can just click add to cart and pay?
I will post a picture of a prebuild, so I can show you roughly what I want the end result to look like. For the bling factor.
I will not apologize for the wall of text, because you know me and if you can’t handle an excessive amount of chatter, then you shouldn’t be reading my posts because they would be a danger to your mental well being.
Oh one more thing @revzman You haven’t checked in for a while, I need to know you are okay. I posted something special for you in star wars section so stop staring at your wife’s ass and pay attention RatBag.
