the problem I have is, that as a noob I liked having good documentation and a community of people behind it to fix problems. now if I switch to BSD I'd have to not only real learn everything but also be less able to fix problems.
same. I was quietly confident that the steam wine thing would make linux more viable for games. as it stands now I've got about 70~80% of my games working with my Linux machine. not really sure I want to switch to BSD so quickly.
I haven't yet lad. Seems to be a long winded process but it's also bad practice to keep banging on about it. A subtle hint now and then is just as effective. It worked on my mates but women are wired differently.
Was thinking of swapping my 2*4Gb sticks for 2*8Gb ones, then at least I have the option of going silly and whacking my system up to 32gig at some point in the future if I ever had a need. Far too pricey now and I can't justify that cost, I'll just get another 2*4 and hope it does me for forever.
Palemoon alone needs about 2gb dedicated to it at all times.
Yeah the GPU hurt the most when I built this, but at least there's some shitty reason why the prices of GPU's are so high now, with RAM it just seems to be "lol let's double the price because".
Also I think we can expect GPU prices to start going down in the near future as the fad fades down a bit.
your GPU will die before then, they deliberately make them in obsolescence
There's something quintessentially english about the name Babbage
Pleb tier tbh
How many years do you reckon I've got? Bought it a few months ago.

Many, he's talking shite
Leave me alone lads.
What's "expensive" is relative tbh lad. I went for the GTX 1050 Ti, don't remember the price but it didn't feel cheap to me at the time, I didn't want to scrimp in the graphics department and it'll do me well for my uses so whatever.
The new RTX cards are out soon and hopefully the GTX cards will come down in price. Had the same GPU card for nearly 4 years now (1gb of gram) and still going strong. All my newest games look like system shock tbh.
i bought one for £240 that i wanted to last me a long time - lasted about 4 years - im never paying a lot for a card ever again - i'd rather suffer slightly worse graphics (which i can live with)
