Managed two minor miracles doing online shopping last week - landed a PS5 and a pair of Adidas sneakers I've been searching for for over 25 years.
Hard drives are about to get on the scarcity list soon, as Sony is about to open up their data storage capabilities in May. Very specific, very high quality drive is required. The PS5 has just under a 1TB drive (which is nothing - Call of Duty is nearly 200 gigs alone) - so a hard drive swap is a must. It's fucking irritating and disgusting how the resellers have gotten in on the market for CPU partsSweet score. I've got a weird computer problem and it's not messing wiht my day to day, just anytime im running things intensely, say 30-50%+ CPU, not even most games get there - thing will reboot outta nowhere.
Been through all the easy red flags and none apparent -can only surmise when power draw is highest some component is failing between CPU/MOBO, both of which are like, 8+ years old now, or PSU.
I have a fresh PSU but been busy and havent swapped - looking at computer gear is tough now. Trump tariffs and high demand from mining mean all the best shit is super hard to get, and above MSRP when you do.
IM deciding to wait it out, which sucks, i finally got this elaborate streaming server setup and was able to "catch" other people with a laptop linux server and replay to my main comp doing the oBS broadcast -> with my main PC in the chain reboots are outta nowhere and anytime.
But fuck using it week over week is fine. So hard pressed to spend a boatload now on either sub-par Intel gear or too high prices for AMD CPUs. Plus the perfect motherboard for me in right size with Thunderbolt 4 aint out yet - so I wait til 2nd half this year I think to jump in!
