How have you lost it?

I remember the name but not the password and i think it was registered to an email account that i no longer have access too!
5th Digital one, I can temp setup and to do a redirect if you want to do forgot password?

Nexus if you could that would be great, i might be able to recover the old account as i assume it was tied to that address. :)


Get on the discord or PM to hook up on facebook messenger or something so we can com more directly. You may need to remind me.

same thing with anti vax

scary stuff


True,
It is doing the opposite to what they think. The risks and conditions they "THINK" it causes are unchanged but the mortality rate in babies/kids and diseases because they NOT taking it is on the increase.
Here in Australia you get NO benefits now if you do not vaccinate your kids.

I don't think you can directly compare the intel/amd chips like that but the amd is usually more bang for buck.

the 500 budget was really tight

tried pcpartpicker?

Nope, will give it a look now.. so out of the loop on these things I think I may need to downgrade my nerd status..

I think we are all suffering from that a bit. Finally got to drooling over component lists myself. Despite everything I have some money I need to spend.

At 1080P it doesn't seem to matter too much what graphics you have, 1060 is fine. My temptation would be to go for a Ryzen 2600X gen2 which would blow your budget.

Cheers..

I assume the Rizen 3/5/7 are the i3/5/7 equivalents?

In which case, is the below combo better a decent jump for the increase in cost?

Edit: Just realised I'm also missing the case cost in this instance.. Still I guess is it worth the extra cost?

I would prefer a full ATX merely for the room to do stuff in the case. I have had mATX before but the case does get tight. Drive bays I really just need a couple of 5.25and a 3.5. One 5.25 is going to get a home for up to 4 X SSDs.

SilverStone Grandia SST-GD08B does look like an option. £137.88 is a little more than I would have liked but it's a home cinema case.

Now to find some guts to go into it. Already have a spare 1TB Crucial SSD. Some form of Nvidea GeForce 2070, AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Gen2 or 7 2700X Gen2 and 16GB memory. Decent starting point?
