Re: Video Card prices

The popularity of cryptocurrency is a response to global political uncertainty and is not just a fad. (In other times people would be hoarding gold.) Not sure I agree - Gold was a physical item, with a finite amount, that would always have value (and was what was used to set the value of money) …

Re: Video Card prices

I am getting tempted to move on my 1070ti but I use it too regularly in a secondary PC and I know i'll miss it. I bought it new for £350 (on a Black Friday event) and the eBay sold section shows 1070 ti's that have gone for £350 to £420!!! Fortunately the kind of old, slow cards I buy for my builds …

Re: Origin or Steam

Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

My XP and up are online, for the convenience of accessing GOG games and various utilities etc. Browsing the net is a bit of a pain on P4s etc but doable. Right now I am downloading Fallout 3 from GOG at ~6MB/s (max speed of the adapter) to test out of a 2x 2.8GHz Gallatin with Hypertension system …
