It's okay, not the greatest game in the world, seems like a PUBG ripoff, but with a few nice extras. specialised gear, e.g. hang gliders and pitons to climb mountains. Also it allows you to choose whether you play first or third person. considering it's free, it's a decent pick up, but not something i would invest masses of time in.

Fortnite. Ring of Elysium. Destiny 2 might still be free, not sure. wait for the steam winter sale before buying anything large though

Just buy it and then upgrade, you'll still get good value, especially with the 2080

For the second part of your question. The graph a + bi.

The x axis is the real axis, so 4, 5, etc.

The y axis is imaginary, so 1i, 2i, 3i, etc

You take the a part of the number and you find its' position in the x axis.

Take the b part of the number and find its' position in the y axis. Match the two points and find where they meet as usual. This is also a concept you will need to know, but for now it doesn't help with this specific issue.

If you need any more help just ask - khan academy is a good online resource too.

sqrt -16 = sqrt 16 * sqrt -1.

sqrt -1 is the same as i.

the sqrt of 16 is 4.

therefore it becomes 4i.

trust me, i'm learning this too. it takes a while to understand it fully

Try Microsoft first, explain the situation etc. see if they can help, if not, don't use the education key, just get a new one on the online store/internet. tons of places sell legit keys, e.g. amazon.

I made the change to pc about a year ago and haven't looked back, for this price try this. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/t77Cgw

It'll work at your price point, however you will need a tv/monitor. I still use an xbox controller and this is the only way to go:

that makes almost no difference, as long as it is ddr4. If you want to upgrade components in the future go for it, but to be honest this pc is already a very good pc, and you can expect it to last for at least 3 years without having to upgrade.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "£600 a good price for this used system?"

  • 17 months ago

That is an excellent price, far cheaper than what would usually be expected of a system with this calibre. Usually they go for around £1150, excluding monitor and peripherals. It is a great deal, and I recommend that you buy this as soon as possible.

that isn't right, if you feel like that go to either social services/local doctor or in the worst case police. denying medication and preventing access to the rest of the family isn't normal. there are plenty of call centres that are always there, and are a really good option to turn to, giving you a way to share and ask for help without going via your parents.

In the UK a sure job is find a local magazine company in the area, they almost always need someone to deliver it. Just wait until they need someone in the area around where you live and then apply, as long as you are quick, prompt and polite you should get the job. If not, rinse and repeat.

Interesting theory. When you play fortnite, you automatically get an epic games account, but your username is your console name. That would be interesting to see how games would deal with that. I guess at some point we'll see

the hyper x cloud 2 provides a built in soundcard, with virtual 7.1. just one usb connection, which goes to the soundcard, which then connects to a 3.5 jack, so you can unplug them and use them on a mobile device too. if you are set on those headphones then don't bother with a dac, they're really only for audiophiles/professional use

when you have enough money i recommend upgrading the gpu to an rx580 8gb version, about £240. for now though, the 1050ti is fine. the ssd is the next purchase, and if the pc runs hot, also consider a water cooler.

nice, but if you got the OS from elsewhere, you could then afford to add an upgraded HDD, maybe a wb 1tb blue/black. Another option is to leave the SSD out for now, it can be considered non-essential, especially considering the budget.

I've got the RX580 8gb, well worth getting, a very solid card, works well for all games that I play, about the same price and sometimes cheaper than the 1060, as long as you look for a good deal it can be well worth it, even at the height of the crypto-currency craze I got mine for £240.

good luck, my build might suit you just fine, if your budget can stretch to accommodate it.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/fNf4XH

You can adjust as needed, e.g. change size of RAM, but that will increase price. Use cloud storage to keep price down possibly? Also, do u really need an SSD, what r u going to use it for, OS? If the OS is the only thing u will put on the SSD, just wait a minute, and save a lot of money.

Not enough bang, personally i would go for the thermite, it is relatively easy to make and as long as you put sand underneath the thermite, that should absorb most of the molten metal. Fireworks have some gunpowder, but not enough, also the kinetic force of the firework could move the case? Finally, thermite won't accidentally create shrapnel/bullets, and you can do it at a relatively close distance, less than 1m.

This should give you a good idea of the power of thermite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2KkkMoyFP4

Where to buy materials for thermite: http://amzn.to/2cFxUpI http://amzn.to/2cFyzrk

See above post for wikihow post on how to combine.

Enjoy and post a video on youtube, and put link here!!!!

Edit: You will need a sparkler to ignite thermite, a match/blowtorch isn't hot enough
