    I bought this Ergolux Stanford Office Chair on the 24th January (arrived 5 days later), and it's been sitting in the box unassembled since then. I really must get around to it sometime

    You would have been better off going to Maccas or KFC and getting a bigger meal for far less. Ultimate Box (Burger, piece of chook, potato/gravy, large chips, drink (upsized) - $12.95 Quarter Pounder, large fries, large drink - $11.60 Hungry Jack's Whopper meal (burger, fries, drink) - $10.90 If I'm gonna have takeaway, I pick one of these 3 ... much cheaper

    Yeah, I just checked the WD website. The M.2 is PCIe Gen 3, but as you said, I'm not sure I'd notice the difference either. The speeds are 1.7GBytes sec Read / 1.45GBytes sec write, and that's a lot faster than a SATA SSD, so it'll do for a boot drive. My old Sata SSD boot drive was pretty quick, so all is good I paid $239 for my 1050Ti, and the cheapest GTX 1060 is the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 DC2 Strix Gaming 6GB for $379 (PC Case Gear), so I did save money, as I don't need the power. I usually only play retro games anyway, such as the C&C world, Half-Life 1 and 2 etc

    As far as I know (according to the mobo specs) the M.2 slot is PCIe 4.0 anyway. So I guess it's the same ... This is my first foray into an entirely different system and OS. It's gonna be fun discovering new things It was a bang for buck issue. I wanted it because my old 2GB GT710 was very underwhelming, and the 4GB 1050Ti card supports a huge max resolution. I'm not really a gamer anymore (Bejeweled and Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe don't require immense power) and it was far cheaper than the 6GB+ options. I'm planning on getting a UWHD Monitor in the near future , so the card is a good middle ground choice. A friend of mine (Midnighter) put me onto a script that removes all the bloatware (many GBs), and as per usual, I'll be paring it down to whatever I can remove that's unnecessary, which is what I do with any OS I install. I will miss Windows 7 though. I might even build a backup system using that ...

    Yes, 2160p videos. Mine is a GeForce GT 710, and it's low-end despite having 2GB. Plus I do want to try some other games out I've seen. And I'm eventually going to get a 43" Monitor, probably the AOC U4308V UHD 4K IPS ... Got nothing else to spend money on so I'll just keep enhancing my PC https://www.pccasegear.com/products/46606/aoc-u4308v-uhd-ips-43in-monitor

    I'm all electric here, but the stove I have sucks. Ceramic hobs, and they take ages to warm up. The Induction Hob gets things done in half the time ... So, also bought a shiny new 4GB GFX card and some spare sata cables. When I bought the above 4TB drive, I realised I didn't have any spare cables, so I grabbed some for future purposes. And although the card says "gaming", I'm not a gamer any longer. I just wanted to make sure I can easily run 2160p files. They run okay on my wheezing 2gb plain card though, but a bit of "future-proofing" (as if that's a real thing in the computing world LOL) doesn't hurt, as I'm upgrading again at the end of august to a Ryzen based system with 32GB DDR4 ... Noice!!

    Actually, I only use headphones (Sennheiser of course). I like my music loud, but only in my ears, so as not to annoy the neighbours, and it masks the sound of someone knocking at the door ? I cottoned on to the PMPO shit decades ago when it first appeared. I was at an Archie Martin Vox store, and this huge mofo all-in-one system was claiming "1,000W PMPO!!!". Checking the back it read 10W RMS ... ? The sales bloke was insistent it had 1,000W. I was insistent he was an idiot ?
