Yeah, you need to upgrade to get an activated 10. Although you can upgrade via a USB stick or a local folder, so you don't have to download it 16 times. Just copy it to USB, copy it to all the PCs...

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about, using a cheap low power PC. One of those compute sticks or $99 mini PCs would make a solid media/game streaming PC while still being much cheaper than an Xbox.

Ya, it was only a matter of time. I don't think I'd buy an xbox for this purpose though, there's lots of ways to stream games from your PC that are less expensive.

And steam machines are DOA...

They kinda have to add KB/mouse support if they're going to let excel run on an Xbox like they said it would.

That ain't bad for a guaranteed 4.5. I've been through three 5820Ks now. At 1.3V the first one could barely handle 4.2, the next one 4.3, and finally the most recent one 4.5. So there's definitely a...

Even if they do update it to SATA III it's not going to make a meaningful difference.

Ya who knows what it was. I bought the sabertooth X99 board that's supposed to be extra tough, I guess we'll see how long it lasts. I really should get a UPS though.

Must have been a power surge or something. It just shut off in the middle of a game. I couldn't even get the fans to spin while the 8 pin CPU cable was connected, so the mosfets must have blown,...

My system randomly **** the bed so I've been playing the "buy replacement parts one at a time and hope it fixes it" game for the past few days. I'm down $700 for a new PSU, MB and CPU, but I should...

The fan speed/noise ramps up in reaction to internal temperature, so a PS4 in a confined space in a hot room is going to be way louder than a well ventilated one in a normal room.

Sounds like they redesigned the power supply. 8% less power isnt enough to make a huge difference , otherwise they would have touted how much quieter it is alongside the other stuff.

PlayStation 4

I think it makes people more comfortable with being locked in to a platform. Makes it feel like your purchases don't have an expiration date on them. Sometimes you just have an itch to play some...

I turned a profit every time I bought and sold it, so I'm not really mad about it. The only time I bought it new was launch and I made a solid $100 off that. I thought it would at the very least make...

The OG xbox was literally a PC. I don't think it had any custom hardware at all. It wouldn't even be emulation, just an OS running in a VM. Def way more complex to get the OG Xbox emulator on the 360...
