Back on topic
Congrats to the TheHangout Broh this is who I look up to in my +1 efforts. What was 7000?
Looks like Sony is adding PS4 games to PlayStation Now soon.
If it works great on my computer and internet connection, I would definitely subscribe to play some PS4 exclusives. Also, some people in the comments there are really Butt-hurt about this lol.
SeasonalCAG Ex Console Broh:
This is good to hear because I recently got rid of my last console which was the PS4 was thinking about holding on to it for Persona 5 but thought it would just collect dust like it had been. Hopefully it gets the newer releases and not just the old garbage no ones to play or has played already.

Couple of questions seasonal guru:
How hard is it to flash the T-mobile branded version? And how good is the range on this?
Would one of these be better than say two of these (One for each floor with the second one connected through a powerline adapter):
SeasonalCAG Router Guru™:
It is a pain in the d*ck to flash and most will say just run it stock if you don't need any extra features but I like to tinker so I did it. I had to bad dead spots in my house one in the downstairs bathroom (thats a no no for do do) and one by my living room table. This router fixed that and I also can use my wifi outside in the backyard which I couldn't before.
Powerline adapters/range extenders cut your speed in half this is from research not actually owning/using one. Also setting up an access point/bridge on a second router can be a pain in the... you get it.
If you can get an Asus AC68P or AC1900 router at a Walmart or Best Buy try it out to see if it helps with range then return it. Get it cheaper online somewhere.

What are you getting to replace it?
I was supposed to get Comcast installed today (only 75 mbps here) but the tech showed up and no one was here even though I was here and the tech never showed up or rang the doorbell. I wish they would just say they fell behind instead of faking a visit and claiming I didn't answer. Hopefully will be here tomorrow.
I'm looking for a decent router capable of hitting both floors of a small house or two good routers (one for each floor) that are cheap. I can hook one upstairs through powerline.
Any bro suggestions are welcomed. I went on a wild goose chase trying to find some clearanced ones at Walmart and all that got me was the discovery of a Barack Obama Elementary School here in Atlanta. Not surprised, but that was fast.
I've had a Netgear N750 that I got at a goodwill for $6 sitting in my closet as a backup in case ol' reliable ever kicked the bucket. I'm gonna hook that up shortly. It has gigabit ports, so it should fix my problem.
I also have a Linksys wrt300n and a few Cisco/Linksys wrt120n (or similar) floating around that may or may not have power plugs. I had these as extra backups (either for me or family), but I think those only have 10/100 ports. Gonna probably replace an old Asus router I had running as a range extender with one of those, since my main will have N now.
I have a habit of pickup up routers on the cheap at thrift stores if they support custom firmware.
I was going to do the 75Mpbs myself (I had 25), but the 200 was $3 more than the 75 in my area, so it was a no brainer.
SeasonalCAG Router Shaman:
Always want to write some long ass posts but no one will read/care so get this: ASUS RT-AC68P $70 on Newegg or look on Ebay where I got the T-Mobile branded version for $50 (which you can flash to the AC68P)
If you want to get confused/educated: How To Buy A Wireless Router - 2017 Edition
TL;DR from the website: If you have an N class router, it's time to upgrade to AC class. This can provide both throughput and range improvement, even with 11g or n devices. (Upgraded from Linksys E3200 to T-Mobile/AC68P and experienced this first hand)

So I'm thinking I might want another SSD... Likely around 250+ GB.
I know my current SSD isn't a Samsung but is it pretty much Samsung or bust? I saw a Western Digital Blue that looks to be a good deal with solid reviews... but, hell, I haven't touched a WD HD in over a decade. (Navy used them but I never have.)
I'm thinking I might want another SSD... Likely around 250+ GB.
Hell, they even have a 500 GBs for $140 right now.

Given that I do have a 4K monitor here, will there be a major difference b/t Ryzen and Intel CPU's when say running games at 1440p or 4K resolutions?
SeasonalCAG Hardware Adviser/Ultrawide Dictator:
Ryzen will not help for resolutions it is all about GPU and this is the first time I can use it VRAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMs (feels good).
Posted by headpiece747 on 26 February 2017 - 05:06 AM
So, my rig is old... I need a new video card but that discussion has been had so many times that VRAM might as well be the thread title.
I'm looking for opinions on CPUs tonight. Currently running an i5-2550k and my MB will take an i7-3770 and I found one in an old office pc that I can get for 100. Is an upgrade worth it for such an old cpu?
The other side is the new ryzen chips that would obviously be more expensive and need a new MB as well,but would be set forever.
With a modern video card does a change in cpu really matter much these days? The newest game I have is ark and most others are years older than that.
SeasonalCAG Hardware Adviser/Constant Upgrader:
Was going make a long winded post but will TL;DR myself:
Buying Today: get i5 6600k/7600k, Z170/Z270 mobo and dump as much money you can on a GPU
Future Buying: Wait for AMD CPU/GPU to drop prices hopefully on Intel/Nvidia and compare benchmarks for all three companies.

anyone here SLI 2x 970gtx?
Debating whether to jump to 10 series or SLI the 9 series.
SeasonalCAG Hardware SLI Fogee:
I had 970 SLI and never had the problems that others would with drivers or stuff not running right. I was nice when I had my three monitor setup. I had upgrade from 580 SLI setup and it was a huge improvement. If I was in your situation right now I would definitely go with a 10 series card because a 1070 or 1080 should be able to spank a 970 SLI setup without worrying about SLI games or hacks to get them to run with both (unless you like to tinker which I did at the time and Nvidia Inspector would be your friend). Also with rumors of a 1080ti and AMD Vega on the horizon it should push all the cards down in price if you have patience.
TLDR: Get a 10 Series card now or wait to see if 1080ti and AMD Vega pushes card prices down.
