    PS5 Digital vs Disc

    My relative lives close to a CEX (link) so they buy / sell used there. Sell range would be Rs. 500 - 2000, depends on the game and demand for it. I recall that they sold Sekiro for 2000 recently.

    The CES 2021 keynote that matters

    The 5800 and 5900 non-X parts are OEM only. I don't think this was even announced in the keynote, the info came through some other outlets like videocardz. This is similar strategy to 3900 non-X that is in HP Omen desktops. No word on 5600 / 5700 non-X so far. I was hoping for an announcement on...

    They don't make 'em like they used to

    I agree with you. I am typing this from a system with an i5-2400 processor and Intel motherboard bought in 2011. This has been my workhorse for the past decade and it still surprises me that everything works decently. Nowadays things break so soon, like mach9 mentioned above, my Logitech...

    Smart plug (16A) recommendations?

    I currently use a Helia smart plug for my AC. It works well and can be controlled from the Helia app. It also can be controlled from Alexa though I haven't tried that.

    Budget 0-20k GPU to drive two 4k displays (no gaming / editing)

    Hello all, I need a GPU to drive two 4k displays @ 60Hz. There is no gaming or video editing requirement, this is to just run the displays. The system has a 9700F, 16GB RAM, MSI B360 board and CX550 PSU. Current GPU is a GT710 driving a 1080p display that is going to be replaced with two 4k...

    Budget 0-20k DDR3 RAM 8GB

    Hi, I would be interested in the RAM. Can you create a sale thread for it? It's been a while since I bought anything on this forum so I'm not sure if it's OK over PM without a sale thread for tracking, feedback etc.

    What programming language and book for a 13 yo student

    I would hands-down recommend Python as a great starting language for a teenager. It has a simple syntax which is almost English-like and no compile step - just write and run. The only thing that might trip them up would be pyenv setup, but that's not really a first step anyways. They should try...
