    [–] So, I went to Monaco yesterday and took some pics BernardJazz 10 points ago in formula1

    Definitely, he asked a stranger to take this photo for him.

    How else was he gonna receive that medal? Have the king hop up and down?

    [–] Worst jump start to a race ever BernardJazz 1 points ago in gaming

    2013 had the classic cars, I think it was only 80's and 90's though.

    Is that a beard wash tub from Lush? Nice looking bud as well.

    [–] UK: Tech Recycling - Any good experiences? BernardJazz 2 points ago in pcmasterrace

    A good haggling technique that works for me (albeit I feel like a sly bastard afterwards) is to send a message with an insulting offer, once you've been (hopefully politely) knocked back send them another message from a different email/number with an offer that's a bit better than the initial one but still dirt cheap.

    It honestly works, for example if the asking price is £80 send an offer for £35 then follow up with an offer for £50.

    [–] UK: Tech Recycling - Any good experiences? BernardJazz 2 points ago in pcmasterrace

    I live near to a PC Recycling centre and they're tighter than a ducks arse when it comes to getting hold of anything, even battered cases, they literally throw everything they can on eBay and send fubar components off for scrapping.

    You might have more joy at an all purpose recycling centre, ask if you can pinch anything from the electronics bin and see where it goes from there. Also Gumtree can have some proper bargains on there, especially if you're good at haggling.

    [–] Stop recommending an i5 BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Isn't Ryzen more future proofed as well? In a few years time Intel will probably have a different socket type whereas AMD are sticking with AM4 for a while making it unlikely you'll have to upgrade your motherboard.

    Is that a blue footed boobie?

    edit: Googled it, blue footed booby

    [–] Is there any way to find the windows product key on your PC? BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    That's a different key.

    Paste this into notepad and save it as a .vbs file

    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId"))

    Function ConvertToKey(Key) Const KeyOffset = 52 i = 28 Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789" Do Cur = 0 x = 14 Do Cur = Cur * 256 Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255 Cur = Cur Mod 24 x = x -1 Loop While x >= 0 i = i -1 KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then i = i -1 KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput End If Loop While i >= 0 ConvertToKey = KeyOutput End Function

    [–] Graphics card BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    What kind of games are you after running? You could pick up a 750Ti relatively cheap which will play most modern titles at low/medium settings.

    [–] Help friends upgrade BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    PUBG is in early access and unfortunately runs like arse on a lot of hardware, best bet would be to hang fire and wait for the developers to optimise it.

    [–] Intel i9 vs Ryzen Threadripper? BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Is i9 a typo or have I missed something?

    I just wanted to isolate this little bit, sorry.

    [–] Bad Rats Giveaway! BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    155 - Thanks OP.

    [–] Is my build good? Should I upgrade anything? BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Should be fine for now if you're just gaming. SSD would be nice if you don't have one.

    [–] The Hierarchy of CPU Cooling BernardJazz 2 points ago in pcmasterrace

    If you hook up a catheter then you don't need toilet breaks and it keeps your system cool. Two birds, one stone.

    [–] Can I use my gtx 960 in 2017 BernardJazz 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    I'm gonna guess yeah, still plodding along with a 750 Ti here albeit on lower settings.

    That's how much it'd be to build in Aussie dollary-doo's. Definitely money to be saved through building it yourself.

    [–] Windows XP receives emergency update to fight WannaCry 3 years after end of support. BernardJazz 54 points ago in pcmasterrace

    I think it's probably to help prevent it spreading more than anything, plus POS Ready 2009 is still supported (and based on XP) so it's not much effort to release the update for it.
