Try building it yourself. It's a good experience, and teaches you valuable lessons. those horror stories are from idiots. as long as you take care, you'll be fine. follow a good online guide, and the instructions provided with the parts, apply common sense, and you'll end up with a pc that works, as well as knowing how to replace parts if you need/want to

Very interesting reading. Many summaries can be made, so read the article on your own. Also looks at the social implications/connotations of drinking wine too, so really covers all bases. Looks at multiple different scientific research pieces.

Thanks for the advice. I'm tempted to go with the Lenovo, mainly because I don't think I'll have a large enough area to setup/play either the Vive or the rift. My pc should be fine with vr, it's a good amount above the minimum specs. I also want to try vr, and the Odyssey + is just costs too much atm, otherwise I would choose it.

Pan fried salmon, yes. Most other seafood no. i like fish and chips etc, and i'll eat most fish, but prawns, lobster, octopus, no. I've had jellyfish in vietnam, but that didn't taste of a lot, mainly water, with a jelly like consistency.

Depends where you put them. I don't have experience personally, but I know some people just replace the front case fans with these, either for RGB, or because they believe the cooling is better. i've never had any issues with my focus case. up to you

Looks a very good budget build. I've got both the headset and the same graphics card as you, and both are amazing. if you want to save some money, then skip on the case fans. the case already comes with fans, and you probably don't need the new ones.

You kinda need to post at least a link to your build. that is always really helpful. you can find the url in your parts list.

The point here is ratings are not the same as reviews. most people can't be asked to write a review, so they simply leave a rating from 1 to 5 stars. so there are 263 ratings, but only 10 people have actually written something about the product. if you want to see a lot of reviews, go to amazon

They said all the trees will be planted by jan 2024. Also, as this is a massive charity, they'll already have a lot of different seedlings for various areas of land and conditions already. That won't be an issue.

sell the monitor and the pc seperately. keep the keyboard. always good to have a spare if needed. if you are building a new pc, then keep the monitor. for price, just put together a parts list on the site, and then knock some cash off, depending how long you've had it for/how outdated the hardware is.

Probably don't need to purchase your own thermal paste for now. The CPU comes with it pre-applied, and that's usually fine. Get some of this stuff on ebay, e.g. the monitor, the case, keyboard, maybe even the GPU. Don't need the CPU cooler, the CPU comes with a cooler as standard.

  1. They go to a hospice, or stay at home, if they want. Assisted suicide isn't yet legal, but if people want to, they can go abroad for it. There are a fair few court cases being heard about the legality of it, but no clue as to when they'll finish.

  2. DNR's are perfectly allowed, one guy i read about even had the notice tattooed onto his chest. Not compelled to have them at all. It's the person's own choice.

  3. https://www.quora.com/How-much-money-is-taken-from-each-UK-worker-to-pay-for-NHS Read through all the answers.

  4. ??? No clue. Some doctors top up their pay-check by doing private consultations, for private health insurance, which pays well. Try some research, and see what you come up with.

  5. Nope. THC oil is slightly less restricted, but only in special cases. NHS doesn't cover weed, THC, or anything like that. That'd be under a private prescription.

Every single person who pays taxes in the UK pays for the NHS. That includes free vaccinations, eye exams, and a bunch of other related stuff. There are certain restrictions and rules for those unemployed or on benefits, but it doesn't matter whether or not they pay taxes, they are still given access to all healthcare free of charge.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "The Impeachment"

Everyone pays for the NHS, and everyone can use it, e.g. when someone collapses, or has a major medical emergency, they are usually rushed to a public hospital, where they are treated. Once they are stabilised, and if they have private insurance, they can move to a private hospital if wanted. Everyone gets the NHS and everyone pays for it, through their taxes. If someone wants to buy private health insurance, they do so, but also still have access to the NHS.

Probably not used to pay off sexual harassment victims - that's probably just your paranoia/conspiracy theories talking there. I don't care what Congress really does. We in the UK have our own issues at the minute, yet we still manage to successfully fund the NHS, providing everyone with free healthcare. Even those who can't afford it.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "The Impeachment"

I'd like to point out Universal Healthcare is possible, and it is the answer. The UK's NHS proves this fairly well. Everyone has access to free healthcare no matter who they are, and how much they earn. Private insurance is also available for those who want it, alongside the NHS.

I refer you back to Philip here: "I do pick the ones that I think are important for us and the kind of community I want to encourage here." . Apple users have their pc's pre-built too, so they don't really need this site for the building bit. the only people who do are hackintosh enthusiasts, and besides, tampering with an apple pc void the warranty. the community of hackintosh on pcpp are way fewer than the windows community, so it just isn't worth enforcing it as much - if they don't get an answer here they can just go to a hackintosh enthusiast website instead. same outcome, different method.

While Apple does sue companies that sell hackintosh, they knew individuals would use apple software on non-apple products. Technically it is illegal, but apple doesn't care as long as you don't try and profit from it, e.g. selling hackintoshes commercially.
