I like my cars like I like my women, 21 years old and with issues.


I would be called a dirty old man... :p

You are a dirty old man already!

I am looking very closely for a new system, last two are intel boxes and, while the CPUs are still OK, the graphics card on one is an Nvidea 970                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            GTX and the other an even older MSI AMD Radeon HD7800.

So absolute minimum is a new graphics card.

So I got it back last night, steering now works great but the power mirrors, clock and stereo were are all dead ???

After about 2 hours of faffing turns out it was a fuse gone in the drivers side footwell :roll: now all fine.

Is it the end of this saga? Probably not as I saw rust colouration on the floor underneath where it had been parked :thumbdown: :roll: :lol:


Next on the agenda is a stripping the car and a full respray along with a set of better suiting alloys, this is long term though.

New Ryzen chips out Sunday. https://www.amd.com/en/products/apu/amd-ryzen-5-3400g is the new GPU on board offering (also lesser priced Ryzen 3 variant)

Also re-looking at the original build spec, consider an M2 NVME instead of an SSD.

Yep, so I've been waiting for this, there are excellent deals on the 1k and 2k series chips in anticipation of the 3k (Zen 2) for anyone interested, HUKD is full of them..

In terms of my build I've decided to screw my budget and spend double what I was planning, and NVME is on the list, although real life performance is likely negligible compared to a standard SSD I believe, despite much more significant bandwidth availability..

I'll also be going for a dedicated GPU, although still a little lost on what to get.. for around £300ish

I've always been convinced you could write a successful book with your exploits, I now realise I was wrong, as you could comfortably write 2  :lol:

I have no idea how to even start explaining the bad/weird dates I've been on and the mentals I've dated

the last girl went out with we'd dated for a few months... I had to phone a taxi and kick her out of my house at 3am after she went mental, storming around threatening to knock me out because I moved a pillow

there's so much other sh*t you'd think I was making up if I told you... not the kind of stuff to type out on the internet :-o

I had a date with a 22 yr old a while back, I felt like a pedo

(not joking, serious)

and I got wrong for not having gel in my hair and my jeans not being tight enough

(again serious)
