I just got a random text on my phone from Microsoft. Clicked a link and I won 500 rewards points. Better than a kick in the shins I suppose.

Game Pass continues to impress
I do not understand the haters
Can a Game Pass hater explain why?
Not trying to be a dick, I just don't get it
You feel the compulsion to have all 200 titles downloaded at once? Causing you to break your monthly bandwidth caps and you've purchased many extra terabytes of additional storage.

All this talk of SSDs for the X, and I’m thinking about one, too. Don’t have an X yet, but that might change soon. How does this drive look though? Seemed a decent price.
I think you'll see a benefit even without an X with that. That seems like a decent price although you could probably find a WD 500gb 2.5 drive plus a cheap enclosure for a little less money. Even though the speed is 300mb per second, that is still faster than the roughly 150mb per second of your typical spinning drive.

Saturday morning semi-OT: I wouldn't mind getting back into PC gaming some, but don't want to spend almost $1,000. Someone is selling an Alienware Aurora 7, less than a year old, $450 with the following specs:
Intel i5-8400k CPUNvidia 1050 Ti GPU8GB DDR4 RAM1TB HDPost is detailed, sounds like they know what they're doing (I avoid ads where they don't list specs etc). Seems like a fine mid-range system and the mobo is supposed to be very upgrade-friendly (and should support 8th-gen processors if I wanted to upgrade).Seems like a decent deal? I haven't built a PC or bought computer parts in at least 7 years so I'm a little out of the market, but used to build/tweak PCs a lot in past lives.
That should get you solid 1080p gaming. Might have to tweak some settings down from high to medium. The only upgrade I would absolutely recommend would be to put an SSD in there. Even a 2.5 sata drive. Especially if you can put an m.2 nvme drive in. Install Windows on that. I'd also think about getting 16gb of ram in there.

Looks like Forza Horizon 3 has 4 new achievements. Two popped for me just opening the app on my Android phone.
Thanks For All The Drifts 125 points
Forzathon See You Horizon Boss 125 points
I am missing 2 wonder what those are?
Your missing ones are The Final Tour (2000 races or "Hot Wheels" skills, and Cleaning up the Festival (1000 races or Snowman Skills)
I popped all but the "easiest" one by loading up my iPhone app. I'm sure I've raced 1000 races if I've done all the Championships in the main game and both DLCs.

Heads up, just got an email from Microsoft advertising their consoles at $100 off but that's not what I came here to post about. There are some trees right below that message that I clicked on and was awarded $10 in Microsoft moneys :0
Basically, check your inbox and click on dem trees!
I got one on both my Rewards accounts. It's a code, and it let me apply the code to the account I use to purchase things. A free $20. Nice.
