Viewsonic VX2263, 22-inch, only £128. Don't get fooled by expensive bullshit! ;-)

(And the people that say 60hz refresh will 'give you a headache' or 'give you eyestrain' are talking utter bollocks. I've sometimes used my PC for 8 hours stright and NEVER had a problem.)

Has "autism" really become a pejorative term now?? That's VERY sad. Maybe you should suffer from it yourself and see what it's like, before using it as a form of insult.

Microsoft are leaving the Minecraft you know behindMicrosoft are leaving the Minecraft you know behind

So the Nazi takeover will be completed. Microsoft will shut down the freedom of the players to mod Minecraft for free, to make whatever version of the game they would like to play, and they'll take away the ability of people to share those mods. They will have locked down the "monetization" of the game, where you have to pay for all the extras, despite having already paid for the game. Once it happens, let's see how long Microsoft's capitalist greed will allow the game to survive. It'll be interesting to watch the next few months, I'm sure. "Better together"? No. "Better when we're all under the capitalist thumb."Reply

I doubt they will shut down the Java version for a long time. Developing the cross-platform version (Windows 10 Edition) will probably help to keep Minecraft going for longer.

Given the number of subscribers he has, I think it would be more accurate to say that PewDiePie has dumped Disney and YouTube. ;-)Reply

Given the actual size and scope of Disney I really hope he invested his initial success wisely because he just screwed himself out of anything children oriented for the rest of his career.


No other major industry player that deals with children will touch an individual with antisemitic shenanigans in their history even if it was just for the lulz or wtfs.


Seriously, it's not the early 90s, there's absolutely no need to find out just what people are willing to do for a dollar on the internet anymore. To be "shocked" by the outcome is like being surprised fire is hot.

Intel SSD 600p 512GB review: PCIe speed for the price of a sluggish SATA mid-rangerIntel SSD 600p 512GB review: PCIe speed for the price of a sluggish SATA mid-ranger
Saiph Avatar

There is another thread close by here, "Best SSD for gaming" which I studied. That has a lot of interesting and relevant stats, and it put me on to the 850 EVO. I checked some other sources too (and have been for some weeks), but with some recent price changes an SSD upgrade now seems like a no-brainer.

Glad it helped you out - hope you'll be happy with the EVO :)

Thanks for the info & quick reply. I upgraded my PC with the H87 board as it was "previous generation" at the time, and very good value. It's served me well, but obviously there's the risk of missing out on newer features. Maybe SATA 850 Evo is a better way to go. I have 2x1TB HD ATM, so that should still give me a good speed boost.

To be fair you might actually be better off with a decent size 850 EVO. Was a great drive and you might find that because it's booting natively from your motherboard, rather than an SSD going through a third-party M.2 adapter, it might actually get you into Windows quicker.

This is exactly the kind of out-of-control crap that happens when business people on the make give too much money and too much fame to young, inexperience, vulnerable kids for simply playing computer games. It's an entire industry based on hype and the exploitation of children. Shut it down.

This drive looks really good. I have a slightly old Asus H87-Plus mobo with no M.2 slot. Is there an adaptor available which would suit this drive? I've searched around a bit, and most of the adaptors I've seen either seem to be recommended for specific ranges of SSDs, or require a later chipset than I have. I don't want to make a mistake ordering an adaptor I can't use.

In these days of austerity, when more and more reasonable people are becoming aware of 1% of the world's population holding 99% of the wealth, Overwankers have singled themselves out to be some of the most elitist pricks on the planet. Congratulations. I bet none of the Overwankers are women. If there was one woman amongst them, she would have had the common sense to put a stop to this childish bullshit! ;-)

Blizzard hit by spree of DDOS attacks - here’s what you should knowBlizzard hit by spree of DDOS attacks - here’s what you should know

"Diablo will be fine...". Er, no it won't. Bounties entail completing five missions in a row without disconnecting from the game, especially if you're chasing the bonus bounties to stock up on crafting mats. Also, there's an achievement for completing bounties in all five chapters in a single game, so that requires twenty-five missions without being disconnected. So DDOS bastards hurt Diablo players just as much as anyone else, unfortunately.
