Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 vs. Windforce OC

Hey guys,

So everyone told me to get the WINDFORCE OC model of the Gygabite GTX 1070, saying the superior price tag of the G1 model wasn't worth it (indeed who cares about RGB lighting).

Here's the thing though, weirdly enough I can get the G1 for cheaper right now.

So here's my question: Should I go and buy the G1 after all if it's the same price or cheaper? Or are there hidden cons the G1 has that the Windforce doesn't have?

Thanks in advance.

Personally I wouldn't fuck with Gigabyte if I were you. They've sold me broken shit before and getting them to do an RMA was a fucking nightmare. For Nvidia cards I go with EVGA, for AMD cards I go with Sapphire.

Hello /tech/!

Back in the 90's web search agents was all the rage. But where have they gone? And is there any desktop program that does the same?

I'm more interested in getting the rigth answer over the quick answer. I'd love to have a program where you simply upload the pictures to it. And it runs in the background and notices me when it found something. I want the search to be customizable to the individual image. Let's say that image A will be given 100 searches during 10 days using 1 search engine and image B will get 100 searches during 1 day using 10 search engines.

I've checked out Download.com, but it's all Google-Google-Google. And Imageraider.com hasn't worked for me for a year.

Thanks in advance!

If you know how to write a python script and know what elasticsearch is checkout this: https://github.com/EdjoLabs/image-match
If not and you have disposable income pay some codemonkey 200 bucks on freelancer.com to do it for you. (You can probably get somebody to do it for half of that if you can wait)
If none of the above google moar and don't catch any viruses, good luck...

I've puttered on with 4GB of memory a good many years now, but thinking of getting some more.
Is it likely that the pricing will drop down again sometime or should one just bite the bullet and get some sticks before it increases even more?

Is it a good/bad idea to spend money on RAM now if one can wait?

Especially with DDR3 since the new platforms support it and plenty of people were buying out the old stock when it was cheaper than DDR4. So that window of opportunity was very short.

But to OP, there's no way to know but it doesn't look like it. Just bite the bullet if you need to. I thought it would drop since I built my PC but it's only gone up.

If you don't mind testing it, you should only be buying used DDR3. Modules last pretty much forever and the price will steadily drop until most of it is in landfills.

Someone apparently wants to buy my pretty generic domain name

$500 for a domain, equivalent of oakservices.com pretty generic.

So, I got contacted by a broker from godaddy saying this buyer wanted it for 100. I told them I wanted 500 and accused them of being a scammer. They assured me it wasn't a scam, said the buyer found 500 acceptable. The broker seems to have a linkedin showing they've worked at GoDaddy as a broker for 5 years.

I'm just having trouble seeing the value in it, or the angle of some potential fraud.
There are surely ways to securely transfer domain/payment, so I'm less worried about that but it sounds unfun to research.
Another thought was that they would attempt to impersonate me, as I used an email from that domain in a few places.

Or maybe it's just totally legit and they want it that badly, or the money isn't a big deal. I asked what the buyer's purpose for it was, and got back something about medical information with procedures and diagnoses. It *could* fit the domain... I guess... maybe...

Also I was drunk and sending them all kinds of bullshit and they're still willing to talk, which raises a flag to me. But it could just be the broker accepting that some clients are drunk assholes.

Thoughts?

I've seen decent sites where they got enough free traffic that they could have charge for their services. But put their domain name for sale. Possible mistake doing so.

Hey guys!

Alright, I'm really bad when it comes to things like this, hence this (very likely) stupid post.

The right side of my Audio-Technica headphones isn't working anymore. I don't know whether or not it's merely the cable.

Here's the thing though: I can't test it with a spare audio jack because of its design. It is too deep than for me to reach the actual port.

The picture highlights the aforementioned problem so that hopefully by now you understand what I'm going on about. So to sum it up, the "overextending" part of the cable is supposed to go in as well, so that it is far enough to make contact.

So finally here comes my question. Could I just put some aluminum foil at the end of the cable in order to reach the port and establish a connection? Or, is this the worst and dumbest idea in the history of /tech/? Also what would be the potential risks (assuming it is even worth trying).

Well at least I'm asking before doing anything since I really don't want to wreck my headphones, which I truly love and miss so much.

Thanks in advance my friends. Any tip on how to test if it's just the cable or not will definitely be greatly appreciated.

The thing I don't like it is I had an M50x with the swappable cables. Well I jiggled it around 'cos I had the one cable I liked and it would generally bring the left side back to working. Thing is, when I tried the other cables, it turned out that it's the single non-replaceable part of the connection that broke.

Call me paranoid but it seemed intentional.

Depends on how tech savvy you are. If you're comfortable figuring out how to install your own OS on mobile you can use that and be relatively safe.

By default though you should treat mobile phones as a device that isn't secure period. Nothing sensitive or that you wouldn't want others to know should ideally end up on there.

Will it hurt anything like using too much power of put too much demand on the cpu if I turn the motherboard's video out on?

I also have two monitors on my video card already.

it depends on the motherboard. some allow it, others (usually older ones) don't.
search for your motherboard's manual on the web.
and no it won't blow up or anything if you plug both when it's not supported. you just won't get a signal for one of your screens.

Worst case, you'll have no video and need to move your cable to the other output to get to BIOS setup and revert the change.

Enabling integrated can be used to add more monitors, or to give you a way to access the host system while PCI-passthroug-hing your real GPU to a VM, or to use QuickSync to encode video if it's a recent Intel CPU.

I truly don't know much about 144Hz monitors, hence why I'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this one. Also if you think there are better deals out there, I am 100% open to recommendations.

You're a fucking idiot. The time it starts is when you receive the prompt. If it's a midterm then you just study and you have to write the paper in the allotted time during the test (usually around 2 hours) without a computer which significantly increases the amount of time it takes to write it. Go to college and see you absolute fuckong dolt.

If you don't think a students parents paying for their kids new expensive laptop that they could live without such an expensive one,, tuition, everything. Sending money while their kids slack off and act like asses because of that 'freedom.' Don't you think the parents expect each class, each assignment, that the moment they walk into class that that is the beginning of having time to
use every moment in the class to essentially study.

One may get an assignment, then have it suddenly change. Kinda like pop quizzes. Like "are you paying attention?" Or just what kinda barely sinks in and will worry about details later.

Know what is expected as well not expected. Some professors will change an assignment just like that. From typed to written, from written to an on the spot oral presentation, to a demonstration.

We got sudden 10 page topics due the next morning, why? because. The class that day was a teachers presentation, not just teaching, but a noticeable presentation of the subject(s.) Thise who payed attention and especially saw what was coming, went home, did their work and
others were completely lost. 10 fkn pages from just one presentation by the instructor.
Or were these ongoing assignments from day one?

Corporations used services provided by AT@T, to name one, back when cell phones I don't think even remotely existed. Although two way radios, fm radio, uses trunks, 'to communicate from one to another.' These, AT@T, others, services allowed trunk access to make possible switching to long distance calls for corporations from local lines.

Trunkin I gues you could call it, has many applications, cell phones, whatever communication you can really think of. They differ greatly of course. I believe home networking is just as trunk access, switching, as anything else. As well, say lighting, um, concerts. It is communication from one party to anothers party.

This is from mostly memory from the past. And lots of studying stuff that may seem insignificant or boring. I am not that old but have worked for, with significant persons of technology. Me doing work for people who worked on components like zip drive, cd technology. Professors from like MIT, others who worked on .gov technology. technology that makes today's technology what it is. Although not knowing part of what these people are talking about, I guess i seemed enough to carry on hours of conversation. Which older technology seems basically boring, applying it to today's technology, it makes sense. If one cannot understand older technology,
how will they actually understand here and now technology. Sure you can do it, but knowing the background of like tor, understanding DNS basics. It is all worthwhile.
-
Anyway, a hacker of significance. John Draper. AKA Captain Crunch. Why capn crunch nick. More than one reason. However, he tried to sell known technology, among other known uses of switching. Made some money but not a great venture.
What he was selling was; simple tones would make phone services do it's thing, like corporations could utilize long distance, calling for commerce, etc. By switching into trunk lines. Others learned to do this also. He furthered these but few were interested. So, after Apple, and all this.

He did make a whistle, it put out a 2600Mhz frequency. So could make long distance calls. He learned this from laying lines.
What they can and are meant to accomplish by which means. This whistle, one could go to a pay phone and whistle and
access the trunk and switch. Free phone calls.

By coincidence, the cereal Capt'n Crunch had a toy prize, a whistle that could produce that same frequency. 'Wanna buy a
whistle, wanna buy a whistle" could be heard around public pay phones.

My experience, I was in Denver, the rough neighborhood,, before crack epidemic, vietnam vets were the street. Speed, acid. This guy was making a call and blowing a whistle into it. Captain Crunch whistle that he kinda tried to hide a little bit.

No he was not crazy, I knew he knew how to get free calls. By then, he tried a one part system, no deal, tried another combo, then the 3 part did work.

Calls (local were, 20 25 cents.

I was short for a dime, malfunction, whatever. but as he accomplished his goal, I asked for a dime, he rudely turned to me and said get your own. Meaning get your own Captain Crunch cereal whistle. I said, I was just asking for a dime. Anyway, that area
was upgraded in it's trunk lines. But, the 3 part motions still worked.
