Re: Time to upgrade?

I've taken the plunge.
My local component shop, CCL in Bradford, has a promotion on a 2070 RTX Super for £419.99, so I've grabbed one.

Thanks guys. I paid £435 for my 1070 back in 2016. I'm looking at spending around £500 this time, my spend on PC stuff has been very low of late. I got the current PC built to a pretty good spec as it was my 65th birthday present to myself. My birthday is in December so I might hang on a little long...

I can't afford the newest cards so I usually stay a generation behind to get better value for money. My current PC is approaching 4 years old and has an MSI 1070 card. I was thinking of one of t...

Very impressive (from my rather humble standpoint) - congratulations!
We all started at the bottom.

I think there's a thread somewhere about when I reached my first thousand! :lol:

Found it... it was bit more, but not much.

Re: Kill The Cancer Challenge 2020

I run WCG anyway, it's been one of my favourites for years. So I'll just set my preferences to the sub project specified.
Although I will lose a bit of time, as we're on holiday until 2nd Feb and my PC will be shut down while we're away.

Re: Word Association

I wouldn't mind a change. It is limited with just the two of us playing.
New game or fresh players? Not many folk seem interested in the word games.
