What's the best build for a nostalgia PC, /g/?
Planning on building a 2000/XP desktop (probably 2000) for playing shit like old-school Half-Life/CS, AvP, Deus Ex, UT99, etc.
I never had one myself, but apparently it's voodoo 3dfx or bust. I'd go for a pentium 4 or a high end pentium 3. I'd try for at least 2gb ram, even if it's for nostalgia, you still want the os to run smoothly.
I don't really know what board this question belongs to, but since it has something to do with technology, I decided to ask it here.
Are there any good video editing tools besides Windows Movie Maker?
Will this meme ever die?
I'm trying to make my own Windows Recovery USB to repair a damaged NTFS file system running Windows 7.
I have a second (working) machine running Windows 8. I've formatted the USB and have copied most of the boot files from the Windows 8 folders but I can't seem to access the Recovery folder, even after taking ownership on the admin account and giving myself Full Control.
What am I doing wrong?
tl;dr I essentially just need to run chkdsk from a usb to fix the NTFS partition on a corrupted HDD. Is there a simpler way?
You're a major C-Word if you use it or any of its offspring
Are the acer predator laptops worth buying?
Can you recommend me some good gayming laptops, around 1000-1500 bucks?
What gaymes are you gonna play, manchild?
I can do fizzbuzz, but I can't into real development. Got into talking and looks like I got some fucking job because I talked about programming and writing algorithms. All I've done is um programmed blinking led for arduino.
I do want the job. I got 2-3 weeks before I'm discovered. Tips /g/?
is a 9800GTX or a haswell iGPU fasteR?
What's wrong with AMD GPUs??
There's some weird issue with amd's hardware cursor implementation.
They don't include enough ROPs to completely slaughter nvidia, but they make up for it in general purpose compute performance.
I switched from using Linux and OSX exclusively for a few years.
Ask me anything.
I must use utorrent 2.0.4 because muh private trackers but could be a nice idea to use QB/deluge for public ones?
There was any real harm done to anyone for using outdated utorrent?
>There was any real harm done to anyone for using outdated utorrent?
There is harm using it at all, its a insecure program that has been confirmed to have spyware and bitcoin miners
It runs a little hot, and kinda smells like the plastic is burning. Any idea how to fix it without returning it?
That's fine m8, you've gotta give the processor chance to wear itself in. Much like a new car.
Hope this helps, enjoy your purchase and thanks for using AMD™!
Hello /g/. I need your help. My gf is going to Los Angeles later in the month, and I've asked her to buy some pc parts for me. Since I'm from Argentina I don't really know about american electronic stores even less about los angeles ones. So please can any californianon tell me some good stores that are trusty, cost efficient and in the zone? She'll be staying near the walf of fame so bonus points if I can get one that is not too far from where she's staying. I was considering buying through internet (newegg?) but she's not staying in a hotel so...

What chat clients do you /g/uys use and why?
There are NO good IRC clients for Windows and its fucking annoying.
>mIRC: lol paying
>HydraIRC: no updates since 2008
>Everything else: shitty loonix ports with non-native GTK+ widgets
I would still say HydraIRC is the best one to use anyways even if its super old
I'm using HexChat.
Because I'm not a basement dweller with will and time to configure a client that requires age to set it properly and I like guis that have been invented for a reason.
Also I made my HexChat scripts.
Daily reminder that if you have more than 5 apps that aren't prebuilt on your phone your likely a highschool girl or a manchild.
