  1. I have a friend in the land of the free who has $400 to spend on a laptop

    We want it to be able to run Minecraft at 60fps. Being able to run some other slightly more demanding games, like CSGO and phasmophobia, even at 30 fps, would be amazing.

    I don't know much about laptops, especially on such a tight budget, so any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    I've never seen the reason for 3 monitors tbh, 2 is more than enough.

    Some people are visualphiles and constantly need 10/10 amazing monitors that costs and arm and a leg. I think you could much better spend your £££ by saving for a 3080

    Not much point buying a 3080 if you don't have a 10/10 monitor to pair it with though. The 3080 is a 4k card, honestly it would be wasted even on a 1440p monitor. 

  3. 5 years ago I came to this forum as a 15 year old wanting to build a PC. You guys gave me advice and I built a system that lasted 5 years (and is still working fine today!). You can see that thread hereThat build is for sale btw if anyone's interested 😉

    5 years later, today, I have a new build. One with a lot more RGB - The Compensator:






    Case: Fractal Meshify S2 Blackout Tempered Glass

    CPU: Ryzen 9 3900XT 

    CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i RGB Platinimum Hydo Series (Liquid Cooler)

    MOBO: Crosshair VIII Hero

    GPU: Gigabyte 2070 super (temporary until the 3000 series releases, will also be on sale for cheap in a couple months xx)

    RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3200mhz

    M.2 SSD: 1TB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS m.2

    HDD: 2TB Seagate 7200RPM

    PSU: Corsair 850W RMx Modular 80 Plus

    Case fans: 5x Corsair LL120 RGB LED Fans (Intake through front and bottom. Exhaust through top and rear)


    Monitor: LG Ultragear 27 inch (144hz 1440p)

    VR: Valve Index


    The camera unfortunately doesn't do the lighting justice, but I'm very pleased with it!

  4. Hi all - looking to buy a laptop for business purposes. I need it to be efficient at:

    - General use

    - Word processing / some adobe software (not video processing)

    - Conference calls / Zoom etc

    It won't be used for gaming and doesn't need to be state of the art high end. Looking at the quote below from PCSpecialist, do you think this is a good deal? It would cost £733.

    • Chassis & Display: 14" Matte Full HD IPS LED (1920 x 1080)
    • 8GB Corsair 2400MHz SODIMM DDR4 (1 x 8GB)
    • CPU: i7 Quad Core Processor i7-8565U (1.80GHz, 4.6GHz Turbo)
    • GPU: Intell HD Graphics (CPU Dependant) - 1.7GB Max DDR4 Video RAM - DirextX 12
    • Storage: 256GB PC 2.5" SSD, SATA 6 Gb (500MB/R, 400MB/W)
    • Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
    • Also comes with an external DVD drive

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  5. IMO The roleplay mentality that existed in 2014-16 has deteriorated over time. Many interactions I have had with police and various rebel groups, I believe, would have been frowned upon or punished for poor RP in the earlier years of the community. I reckon the only reason it's okay now is because it's so commonplace and has become the standard. Whilst I have every respect for this community, it's no longer the champion of RP that it used to be. It would be very wholesome to see a community-wide effort to shift attitudes back toward interesting roleplay.

  6. The market system would benefit from a rework - a dynamic market would be preferable but even just reevaluating the prices of the runs would help.

    The economy suffered inflation and that saw the introduction of runs (barns prior to nerf, blood diamonds/diamonds, high grade weed) awarding significant sums of money. The trouble was, the other runs failed to keep up. Regular drug runs aren't worth doing, and Meth (one of the riskiest runs on the server) awards only one third of a blood diamond run.

    I imagine this would be more interesting for police as well as it would bring more activity into their domain.

  7. I would love to see one of these rally events organised again. It was first done in 2018 and it was organised as a tournament. The tournament lasted over several weeks and each day had 3 stages which would be revealed to you shortly before it was your turn to drive. You would earn points for how well you performed compared to other drivers in each stage, and additional points for the overall time of all stages combined.

    You can see my perspective of the first event here

    It was really fun and everyone got involved. The only shortcoming was the lack of drivers, this was because to enter you needed a team of 5 which consisted of a captain, 2 drivers and 2 navigators. If a similar event is organised, it would benefit to allow individual cars to compete against each other (one driver and one navigator) as it would make the event more accessible.

    One last thing, the rewards should be monetary.

    TL;DR A similar event was hosted in 2018 and it was a blast. Would love to see it happen again, and allow someone to try and take the rally champion title from me ❤️

    Notices to employees or their representatives:????

    Union Law requires employers to notify either the individual employees affected by a business closing or mass layoff or their representatives at least 60 calendar days prior to any planned business closing or mass layoff.  If employees are terminated on different dates, the date of the first individual termination within the statutory 30-day or 90-day period triggers the 60-day notice requirement.


    HE HE HE  


    I encourage employees to make a claim to the Secretary of State for any money they're owed under s182 Employment Rights Act 1996 whilst I change my name and go and hide in my barn

    People should be free to roleplay and do what they want in roleplay as long as it is in line with the rules.

    Gives a set example for someone to be able to exit their rp situation in being executed, by simply in a half assed manner, begging for their life, rendering the hostage taker useless as he can't technically execute him by the rules, putting a harsh line into the rp of what can and can not be done.Makes more same and same situations. "Oh no you took me hostage please don't kill me i'll do anything". It'd just be the exact lines repeated over and over, and leaves little room for creativity.

    The point here, at least for me, isn't that you shouldn't be able to execute hostages. It's that you shouldn't be able to execute them without providing quality roleplay.

    So whilst the hostage can't rely on "overrused" lines to save his life, the hostage-taker will also need to apply some level of creativity to their roleplay. It is, by far, the opposite of a restriction on roleplay and enforces the rule that killing someone should be carried out with proper RP. The bar which defines the acceptable standards of RP needs to be raised again, as some people here have already mentioned, it's dropped quite a bit over the past few years.

  11. Executing a compliant prisoner for the sake of it should come under rule 7.1.3 imo, and that includes just finding silly reasons to kill them like asking them ridiculous questions or giving them impossible challenges. That said, if it's roleplayed well, killing them should be fine.

    Though I accept a lot of the time the roleplay is dog shit

    Is this company still in business?

    Regrettably, this business and its sister company "Bargain Bergens Ltd" are no longer in operation after the CEO sold his shares to the Peach Mafia in order to purchase an overpriced ship...

    Thanks for the throwback though - I remember having a lot of fun with this and it's how I gained one of my prestige points 🙂

  13. I'm also looking into getting a new PC and I've spent a fair bit of time researching the difference between the 2080 super and the 2080ti super. From this, I've also seen discussions about the 2070 super VS 2080 super.

    From what I can tell, the 2070 super is able to cope with games at 4k but the 2080 super will reliably hit 60fps in properly optimisied titles. In my opinion, if you're wanting to play 4k or VR, the 2080 super will definitely be worth it for your future-proofed build.

    there some things in the work, but we always choose to not give in game perks for donators. Its handy to have, but we all know the people only want to this to be faster on the place where gunfights happen. 

    To be fair, quick access to new sets of gear is useful for everyone not just top fraggers
