I mean, I guess it's a little to late to start now, but even if I had started back when the month began I wouldn't have been able to because my hair's too patchy. Maybe next year it'll look good enough.

  1. I don't think they've got aliens or alien's technology in there, since my dad's in the military, we suspect it's more of an experimental aircraft testing site.

  2. Any secure facility has a way to break in, it's inevitable. Will it be easy? Far from it, that's for sure. Also, keep in mind, you are breaking the law by doing so.

  3. I honestly have no idea on this. It could go many ways.

  4. The memes are good. I absolutely love them.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What’s harder to lose. IRL friends or online friends?"

I'd say both for sure. I've moved a lot, made friends here, lost some there. I've had quite a few irl friends and losing them is really hard. I mean, this move I'm about to go through has probably been the hardest and most depressing one so far. Now, about online friends, that's sad too. I've got two amazing online friends that I've vc'd with many, many times, we've talked about ourselves quite a bit, it's almost as if I know them personally like my irl friends. And one of them scared me a bit, which actually had me thinking about how hard it'd be if I did end up losing one. Both in my opinion would be equally difficult to go through.

I'd say the most memorable would be finishing my Eagle project a couple years ago.

Outside our community was this busy road, right? And there was this church on said road with a bunch of kids and no place for them to play. So I built them a playground in the back.

It was pretty fun and cool to see it go up and quite satisfying to have all that done.

Another story would be my first summer camp, now that was memorable, going off on my own for a week at 11 years old.

That is correct! The problem with those though is that sometimes they aren't worth the extra money that they are just for the upgrade to integrated WiFi, however, most do include Bluetooth. This specific model includes BT 4.2.

Yeah, no problem! It really doesn't take a while, so there's that. Personally, I think I'd go with option 2 from my updated list, the one with the larger case, since the dedicated graphics card will be better for future-proofing. Not only that, but larger cases can give off better thermals since there's more room for airflow. Of course, if you're restricted by space, that option probably won't be suited for you.

If I may ask, why do you prefer Intel? I do know some programs are better optimized for Intel CPUs, but AMD is showing some great budget options that can out-perform Intel CPUs in speed and core count for a cheaper price. Hence, why I'm giving you two options: one AMD and one Intel.

Goodness, the difference between CAD and USD surprise me...

So there you go, hope that all helps. And I really do want to know why you prefer Intel over AMD. Is it a fan base thing or is it more practical, like some applications running better on Intel?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First Build - Home PC"

Nah, these aren't stupid questions, believe me. Anyways, to answer them:

  1. You are correct, this setup does not need a separate graphics card. The Ryzen 3 2200G has integrated graphics that can do some pretty good gaming for the price, and considering that the graphics are integrated, you're getting a pretty good deal right there. Here's a video showing the capabilities of the VEGA 8 graphics integrated into the CPU die.

  2. The difference between Windows 10 Home Full and OEM is what you're able to do in the sense of upgrading. Wanna change your motherboard in the future but buy a new copy of Windows? Go with the Full. If you don't see yourself doing that in the near future, however, then OEM is probably the way to go. Then again, it's all up to you. Basically, the OEM version is much, much more limited on how extensive your upgrades are. You can read more about that here.

  3. I think the case has RGB. I can't find any documentation stating that it does, but all the pictures and videos I've seen show it with RGB lighting inside. So...I think it does? ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  4. In the range of upgrades you'd be able to make with the extra $200 in your budget, you'd be able to add some more RAM (but for basic home use and the range of gaming I'm expecting you to have, 16 is plenty), a better CPU (Ryzen 5 2400G), and add an SSD into the mix if you want (faster drive). Below are two options within the realm of possibilities of upgrades with the extra cash:

Option 1: No RGB Inside

The main difference between the two is the size. Option one has a much smaller form factor, so if you're kinda tight on space, that's the way to go. The other option has the same case from last time, but also a separate graphics card, as sometimes that will be better in the long run if you're looking at future-proofing your build.

Anyways, I hope this helped, and goodness, this was a long response.

Here we go, this should cover it nicely. I wasn't able to fit a printer in to the budget, or at least, didn't look hard enough I guess.

This build is nice, but...that's a lot of RGB. I understand that the tastes for how much RGB is too much RGB are all objective, but in my opinion, that's too much for me. But hey, you like it, so don't take that the wrong way. I'm sure that it's quite the beacon in your house.

On another note, it is quite a clean build. I'm impressed, did you build it by yourself? If so, woah, that's super clean for a first build. Mine's nowhere near as clean as that.
