  1. just an old dude that likes games

    You're not the only old dude creeping around here, welcome. I'm still on the first wife but just as old lol!
  2. Well you must definitely be young, but for your gaming pleasure and a throwback to the other old goats here ya go. http://www.ponggame.org/
  3. E3 is Among Us!

    Disappointed Ubisoft didn't announce a new Splinter Cell game....again. The AC series is good but haven't there been enough of those recently? I hear there's a R6 Siege 2 on the horizon and of course we know there's a Division 2 coming (good game but too much bullet sponge of the bad guys). Bring back Sam! Anyway that's my quick .02 worth.
  4. Battlefield V - Live Reveal May 23rd

    Sooo no one seems particularly interested in the next edition of BF....?
  5. Battlefield V - Live Reveal May 23rd

    What did anyone think about this today? The little I've seen a game without more zombies. Sorry but so over that trend COD:Zombies, A new COD+Zombies, look a new Black Ops IV, ZOmbies for the love.... My bad end rant, but I like the BF series and the lack of zombies and I like that it looks like there will be some coop function. Great fun to be had with a small group of friends laying the smack down. We'll see as more info comes out but I guess I'll be cautiously optimistic. Plus BF3 is what lead me to find ADK, so it will always get some bias in my mind
  6. ADK Raiding in Battle for Azeroth

    I'd be glad to, my schedule is always changing but I'll be glad to participate.
  7. What are you reading now?

    I'm still grinding away on the last (for the moment) game of thrones book, also reading through Terror at Beslan, sad but interesting information about that terrorist event.
  8. Oh I go back at least as far as the old Atari's, it's just hard to remember before that. Cause I'm old and stuff lol. First pc type may have been the old Oregon Trail perhaps, in college it was Duke Nukem I think. Ahh the good old days.
  9. New Build options?

    Well I'd like a threadripper but really can't justify spending the cash on that lol. I'm watching 7 prices and sales, I've since read that going with a 1600/x or 1700/x would be a decent option either way. I'm currently running the XSPC liquid cool with a two fan radiator and a bay. I didn't get the gpu block at the time and now I can't get it (no longer made/supported). But I would add on moving forward. It's in my first liquid cool build and I'm quite happy with it. I considered ekwb but they are not the most economical option, so I'm looking for others opinions.
  10. New Build options?

    So I was thinking about building a new machine, current one is 5 plus years old and showing some age. Is the AMD Ryzen 5/7 the way to go these days? I've always had good luck building with ASUS and Gigabyte mobos. Last build was an Intel i5 on an Asus, it's been awhile since I built on an AMD platform. Anyway I'd appreciate anyone's insight on the core of a build. Thanks!
  11. New Build options?

    So speaking of liquid cooling, any suggestions for Ryzen processors? I'm thinking of the 5 1600X, from what I've been reading it's a good compromise and bang for buck when it comes to gaming rigs and AMD processors. 7's are worth extra bucks if you are doing some rendering or video editing etc. So I'm currently running an older XSPC Raystrom kit : http://www.xs-pc.com/discontinued-eol/raystorm-750-ax240-watercooling-kit Think I could just update the cpu block and keep the rest the same? I was also thinking of getting a 1060 or 1080 and adding a gpu block to the loop. Your input is appreciated, thanks!
  12. What's Your Favorite Dinner

    I think you meant steak, potatoes, and whiskey
  13. Most Hours Played For One Game

    I think the command for that in WoW is /time or /played something like that. But some things are better left unknown.....
  14. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I guess people are going to do what they're going to do but right now for the pc gamer looking for an upgrade. It Sucks!! I was looking to replace my old GTX670, it works but is showing it's age. I read a lot of reviews and was considering a 1060 or R580. All were reviewed relatively recently and given a decent price/performance ratio. Then when one goes to an actual outlet to buy one the prices are upwards of 2-3x what they were a couple months ago. The run on ethereum mining has driven prices out of control, people are buying numerous upper mid to high end GFX cards and putting several into one machine to run day and night trying to find cryptocurrency to essentially claim and make easy money. I guess the upside is that when this market crashes cards may get cheap in a hurry. For now though pray your card doesn't take a dirt nap because replacing it will cost way more than it should. I guess I'll wait, unless someone knows where to find reasonably priced cards. Rant for days.........
  15. Ethereum Mining and GPU $$

    I'm looking at the Ryzen options as of late, I have seen a few video cards back in stock and a little price dip, Nvidia supposedly expects the market to keep climbing into Q3 of this year. Next gen cards may help. Think I'm going to find the best deal I can with some coupon codes and bite the bullet. I built a Raystorm liquid cooling setup, I may have to look at the Primochill you mention for the next build!
  16. New Build options?

    Unfortunately is waiting an option anymore? I've seen similar articles as I've linked below lately saying prices will continue to climb until Q3 of this year. Then we'll be in holiday sales and after that the manufacturing workers take a break putting us back where we are now. I was going to keep waiting but not sure if that's the best move anymore. That all being said I've seen a few gpu cards in stock a bit more lately and low end cards come down in price a bit. Probably because new tech will be coming soon, it's always something haha. https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/264576-massdrop-nvidia-expects-gpu-prices-rise-q3-2018
  17. New Build options?

    It seems that AMD usually give a bit more bang for the buck and has a mindset for future growth without replacing the mobo, or so they say. This would be a day to day pc with a focus on gaming, though I'm by no means a pro gamer haha! I'm hoping to find a mobo bundle to help negate some of the overpricing of gpu's. I'm going to reuse my current case and liquid cooling system, ssd, and hdd's and looking to rebuild the core components. As always any advice is consider, thanks so far fellas.
  18. DJI Mavic Pro - $769

    I have the Phantom 3 pro, there's a solid learning curve to flying them if you never have. Beyond the initial purchase you'll need extra batteries, a decent tablet to use with the remote. Many use an Ipad mini. I have a low end Samsung Tab A, I need to upgrade it lags which is a bit bad when the drone is out there. The licensing is cheap for basic registration but you need an FAA part 107 to fly it for a business and it can't be flow over people. However having a drone is fun! There are certainly various ways to make some bank with them if you can invest.
  19. Bitcoin mining for ADK

    Hind sight is always 20/20 and there are others that don't care what happens in the wake of gains. I appreciate the intent this was started in, if only it worked as hoped.
  20. Hi

    Greetings and welcome to ADK Tub Thumper, the name throw back at Chumbawamba perhaps?
  21. Bitcoin mining for ADK

    Also thanks to miners for destroying the gpu market. So a casual gamer(a large segment of our community) can't really afford a new gpu.
  22. Canda vs USA - Womens Hockey

    I live in the "state of hockey" and work at UMD where some of the players on the women's team are from. They've got some pretty damn good players. http://umdbulldogs.com/news/2018/2/18/womens-hockey-six-current-and-former-bulldogs-to-skate-in-olympic-semifinals.aspx http://www.umdbulldogs.com/news/2018/2/19/womens-hockey-rooney-earns-first-olympic-shutout-five-bulldogs-to-play-for-olympic-gold-thursday.aspx

    Panda Stripper?
  24. More then good, a great wireless headset...

    I've had good luck with Senheisser the overall quality of sound and build has been good. I currently have a set of HyperX Cloud Revolver's and they're pretty decent, I also have a big head so I often struggle to find comfortable headwear. From hats to headphones everything usually is to tight and gives me a headache after awhile. https://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/headsets/cloud-revolver-gaming-headset
