This thread is about the appreciation of watches, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that is required to make a fine watch.
Required viewing for newbies:
Looking for analog-digital watch that is not a g-shock. preferably in titanium and good quality.
I prefer an analog time display, but use the countdown, chrono & alarm features regulary on my gw5000.
The dial/crystal on the tissot t-touch is too fucking huge even though I can accommodate a 45mm case.
What should I consider besides pic related?
I have a $50 amazon gift card. Whats the coolest tech related item i can get for around that price. Dont mind spending a little more for something really cool.
Why to choose RX 480 over 1060?
* NVidia gSync costs more
* No SLI for the 1060 3GB version, RX 480 4GB/8GB both support crossfire
* 1060 has less memory, it has only the 3GB and 6GB versions
* 1060 has a 192 bit bus interface vs the AMD RX 480 256 bit bus interface (AMD probably doing better in higher resolutions)
* AMD has 3 display ports, perfect for triple monitor setup
* RX 480 does better in DX 12, near 980 ti performance in Hitman, near 980 performance in AoS, over 980 performance in Total War: Warhammer
* RX 480 already out, NVidia seems to have trouble producing cards and the 1060 will probably also have production issues
* NVidia has problems with HTC VIVE
* AMD cards mature better, they are more future safe than NVidia cards, they also deliver driver updates for older cards to improve performance
* RX 480 is cheaper ($299 for NVidia FE vs $199/$239 for AMD stock)
Why to choose 1060 over RX 480?
* RX 480 (stock) has no DVI, 1060 probably has
* Lower TDP
* Slightly better DX 11 performance
* Better OpenGL performance
* Both stock versions have cheap coolers
* AMD supports open source (for example Vulkan)
* AMD has drivers now, they seem to do well on the software side (for example the RX 480 power draw fixes came fast)
* 1060 and RX 480 aftermarket cards might have similar price while the RX 480 being a bit cheaper on average (maybe around $20) however this is a prediction only
* There will be aftermarket RX 480-s with 8pin power connector and this will fix all power draw problems, probably have better OC capabilities also
The RX 480 seems to be a great card, even the stock one seems to be actually a good buy. I don't see many reasons to wait for the 1060. The FE model seems to be overpriced, need to wait even more for cheaper aftermarket cards while the RX 480 is already out.
Picture related: Sapphire RX 480 Nitro (8 pin, 1 x DVI, 2 x HDMI, 2 x DP)
Probably going to buy this baby, what do you think? Will this card run stable 1400 mhz?

I bought one and started pulling epic pranks on truck drivers like reporting false weather and traffic. Now some guy named "big horse" says he's going to kick my teeth in.
Anyone else encounter this.
What is the distribution of men and women on the internet?
Is the majority of the female population on the internet relegated to Facebook, Twitter and "apps" (Tindr et al.)? If all social media were to vanish overnight, would men outnumber women on the internet 10 to 1?
What did he mean by this?
Why would you not want a hard drive in any computer, even a mac?
