What went wrong?
My friend maxed out a 27" iMac ($4.4k after taxes). He's telling me that his r9 395x is still going to be better than the 1080 that was just announced the other day.
Why can't I find benchmarks for this card specifically? Does Apple get their own specific cards from AMD and then nobody bothers to test out how they compete on the market?
Sorry if this is a stupid question. I just can't find actual comparisons online and I don't know why.
An all-in-one like an iMac isn't going to have a desktop class GPU. Like >>54448518 just said, it's going to be a mobile one designed to throttle under load so the thing doesn't melt or explode
How many of you /g/uys and /g/irls use Google Chrome legitimately or ironically?
I use it because firefox is a laggy fuck for me. I open a new tab and that shit either freezes, stops working. I don't have the best computer it shouldn't be necessary in order to have a stable and fluid browser. Miss 3.6.
So for the last few years I have been using Windows for "muh games". But now I just don't enjoy them anymore, so I was thinking of switching fully to a linux distro. I use Ubuntu on my laptop, but I have never used it seriously on desktop. Any suggestions of distros or essential programs, or even helpful tips would be very much appreciated.

I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn...

Can anybody help me? I haven't been able to connect to wifi on my phone for a few hours now
Hi, your post is off topic.
this is a thread showing different operating systems and programs being used on a daily basis
While W10 is pretty decent, i can't deal with all the bugs in the OS, the touchpad scrolling/zoom gestures don't work on metro apps, metro apps don't show up on explorer and so on, i think i'm going to go back to linux or os x again.
Any tips for buying a UPS for my battlestation? I just need my computer/monitors to stay on for a few minutes in the case of a short power outage. Thinking about getting this one. Is it a problem that this UPS has a lower wattage than my computer's power supply?
it all depends on how long you need to keep it running, a 550W one won't keep you running on a gaming desktop for very long at all. Your best option is to get a used one that needs a new battery. Companies often ditch them at some point for newer higher capacity ones, you can use that to get a much better one for the same price. UPS battery stores around here also sell ones like that with new batteries and a warranty on both the unit and the battery.
Finally cleaned up my XP machine, and got it up and running.
I reinstalled XP, and did the usual, but now I am missing some drivers for it.
How can I install these drivers?
The computer is a Dell Vostro 200, and since one of the missing drivers is network, I can't go on the internet.
Thanks in advance guys.
Why is Amazon so incompetent?
The video cable categories are fucked, just click through each one on the left. The first couple results in every category are completely incorrect.
This has to do more with companies putting their shit up wrong. Amazon has APIs and such that allow you to set categories of products, and if you fuck it up it gets wonky. I've worked with it before.
A company like Samsung or Apple will put it up correctly, but chinks with their cheap ripoff shit wont do it correctly.
Is this the end of "DOWNLOAD" ads?
Is there a program/hardware that lets you control the treble/mid/bass etc of audio?
For all you geniuses saying the 1070 is faster than the titan x, that was for double float precision performance
How come are they even still on the market if their products are so ridiculously overpriced?
Ive been gaming for quite a while but ive mostly been a console fag. Ive really been wanting to build my own gaming pc, and i'd say im good with computers, but I barely know shit about part specs and stuff like that. Where can I go to learn about all this stuff? Like gpu's, cpu's, motherboards, ram, the whole lot. It's frustrating when I go in a pc building thread and I only know the names of shit.
>i'd say im good with computers, but I barely know shit about part specs and stuff like that
You are not "good" with computers. An average teenager knows more than you. Are you basing this off what your 60 y/o mother tells you or something?
