Personally, I would spend more on the processor, but that's just me.
I was silly when I built my PC years ago and picked the most expensive motherboard I saw: https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VII_HERO/
At the time it was about 300 dollars. I think it will be my motherboard for probably the next 5-10 years. It has so much room for expansion.
It's good you aren't cheaping out on your graphics card though. I cheaped out on mine and I eventually had to replace it later on.
DDR4 is good also. I still use DDR3 since it is so much cheaper and due to Bitcoin miners DDR4 and DDR5 prices have shot up.
Spent 5 minutes making my PC, prices have gone down quite a bit since I built mine though.
When I built mine roughly 3 or 4 years ago it was about $400 more than it would cost now.
I am at 105 right now I believe.
Haha don't count me in but it's too bad you have to go. Sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to postpone some things, and that's alright. I am sure whoever wins it will enjoy it!
For those wondering the question was:
Volume in (L) occupied by 7.40g of CO2 at STP conditions.
Work had to be shown, and he did.
The winner is humfrydog! All he has to do is solve a math problem and it will be his. Everyone had about a 3% chance to win. I guess you are pretty lucky humfrydog!
Thanks to everyone to replied. It was good seeing how many of you are still involved in the community, many familiar names. I may run another contest for my valuables, but we'll see.
It may take a few days to get the base into your hands humfrydog but hopefully you enjoy it, or enjoy selling it or whatever you decide to do with it.
I don't know if this is considered as quitting. Life has gotten busy and I just don't have time to play anymore, perhaps more at a later time. I have many good memories of this server and I want others to enjoy their time here too.
Alright. Entering the contest is now closed. If you have posted here you have a chance to win. I will draw tomorrow, just got busy today. Gotta make a list and put you all into a random generator.
Good luck everyone!
I will do the draw tomorrow! If you haven't entered, now would be your time. Not sure when tomorrow, probably in the evening though. I will make an announcement in this thread.
I also have been following a healthier lifestyle over the past 6 months. I eat less than 20g carbs per day and work out 5-6 days a week, and have went from 205lbs to 165lbs. I am 5'10 so I looked sort of chubby before but now I am at an ideal weight for my height and age.
By doing weight training while also following a strict diet (NO CHEATING WHATSOEVER), you can lose fat fast while also building considerable muscle.
I could have gotten better results but I had to change my diet for about 2 months due to dental surgeries that limited what I could eat comfortably.
I actually recently made a post on reddit about it, I was pleased with my progress, check it out if you want.
