I'm building a rig, I want to play 1440p at max @60fps for the next two years or so before having to upgrade.

at $400 extra is it worth it to go with the 1080ti strix as oppose to the 1080 strix?

No.
>>
>>61956346
thanks, mate appreciate it! I heard the %30 performance difference can translate to like 10 fps at most depending on the game.
>>
>>61956328
1080 ti is worth it, in two years you can probably add another one onto it and play in 4k for a year or two before it starts getting outdated.

The 1080 will last you 2 years at 1440p not sure about max but close to it!

What fonts do you guys uses when your read stuff on tablets on laptops?

I am currently using TNR, but it fucks me up when I read pseudocode in TNR.

I cannot believe I have to do this, but..... for once I think the sjw is k.
It hurts telling this but ..... I think that if the idea is that you have limited energy everyday and you should use that energy carefully, this is not a bad idea. Is this connected to programming? Well, kind of, but not really. Still, it could have been a side presentation that is not marketed as important. That being said, I too would have liked if the presenter did not look like an autist

Why is AMD so shit at tuning cards?

I was able to undervolt my card to 1050mV (12.5%) and overclock to 1630Mhz (5%) and now it's drawing less than 270W which isn't super low, but also not that bad either. It's also not throttling at all anymore.

I need to compare these two for a uni project. I will use clean data (or some online DB if possible). My goal is to see which one is easier to use as a non-tech employee for some simple calculations and dashboard designs.

Sup /g/,

im trying to get into this whole usenet thing, after using OCH (gerfag, can't torrent) for years.

I've heard quite a bunch of good things about it.

Is it worth it and which provider would you recommend?

Thx!

So I've been talking to my dad who's been working pretty much all his life in IT, starting out with sys-admin work then moving on to Info sec and finally auditing and less technical broader compliance work. He used to work in Wall St. for companies like Merrill lynch/Bear sterns back in 90's early millennium. It sounded like totally different world when literally if you could do ctrl-alt-del and knew bone basics of NT 4.0/server 2000 you could basically get a job. I know finding work is still hard in this slow growth shitty economy but when I heard my dad was recently offered a job paying an hourly wage of $30 doing PCI compliance work I was aghast that they could even find someone willing to work for such a pathetic rate let alone someone with 30+ years of experience in the industry.

My feelings are this,
1. They can actually find purple squirrels with xyz hands-on 7 years of experience with share point, data-loss prevention CISSPI/CISSA and everything else in between super neckbeard type especially when it's application/software engineering related.
2.These job postings especially when asking for experience requirements for products that have not been released for the time they are asking for, and these listings are just placeholders so these firms can pretend they can't find qualified workers so they can....(next line)
3.Hiring h1b Pajeets and Valds because they can pay them significantly less and also hold them by the balls immigration status wise.
last
For myself I'm really considering dropping out of college (or get an assoc.) and starting/focusing on a business completely unrelated to IT ( I already own/run an aquarium/aquaculture side gig) or even go into a trade. That or i'm going to do what Snowden did and walk up to the HR people at one of the big 4 and prove his worth.
So for those who make this their living what are you thoughts/experiences. Honestly everything that I see is trending to a smaller and smaller game of musical chairs.

It really depends, but you are right though in one aspect. The whole "WE NEED PEOPLE IN IT NAO" is a complete load of bullshit and it's really disingenuous to tell kids and students this is a insta ticket to getting a steady career.
Also without sounding like a /pol/tard, the pajeets and overseas outsourcing have made IT professions no longer an exclusive skill, because you have shit smearing pajeets who are willing to basically work for peanuts and the employers know this.

You can set the grub timeout to be zero so the menu only shows up while holding shift. Then set the top entry to by the normie one.

btw yes. 32-bit's only advantage is legacy software. You don't need 32-bit unless you use those shitty software like vs 2005 or some 32-bit database or some pre win7 winshit

If you had a hard disk in it, it was probably failing after 5 years. An ssd has most of the time a TBW of 70 or more. So it doesn't care much.
