    A year ago I had a glorious 150mbps connection. I decided to move a good bit out of the city and I ended up stuck with this.

    It could be worse, but coming from 150mbps connection it feels terribly slow. I've seriously considered getting a load balancing router and multiple DSL lines.

    Only having 16mbps has ruined next (er, current) gen gaming for me. Every time I turn on my Xbox One there is some 3GB update to install, which at 16 mbit takes longer than I have the time to wait around for.

    I'm so used to the Android behavior of stopping the audio in other apps when audio starts playing in the app you're currently using that it almost annoys me that my PC doesn't do that.

    @Strike105X 4.7Ghz???? Never in my life have I seen such a high clock speed... Wow. Keep a fire extinguisher handy. :p


    In other news, I'm planning to buy a used gaming laptop in April/May, and the budget is 500 dollars (plus a few possibly).
    Looking at the Asus G75VW or G55VW. The GTX 660M they have is still quite a capable card, I have a pal with the same card, it's not too bad, and still plays games from this year.
    Hopefully this won't fall through. :)

    I even went to 5 Ghz both on this and the FX4300, but couldn't get the cores to pass stability tests, otherwise they worked.

    Giving the old HTC OneX a second life as cheapskate VR viewer (the plastic viewer itself was just 5 euros). Managed to find and install a Lollipop build on it (can't find newer ones).
    Also, tried both cardboard and vridge - the latter streams steamvr to a device capable of running cardboard (almost everything); nice way to test some games/vr without breaking the bank.

    I would think so, it's probably seen as regular network folder.
