  1. So far my favorite has been RimWorld. It's not eye popping graphics, but the stories that you can create with your minions can be something great. I have one run that I am focusing on right now, started out as tribal, and researching my way up the research tree. In this run I have a guy named Lucky, in an attack by pirates, his tribe mates shot off his left arm and leg.... Needless to say, it can be entertaining and frustrating all at the same time, but it's always fun. It's only single player as well.
  2. Actually if you do have a business you should be able to buy from the middleman. There may be other hurdles to jump through, such as if you are a certified OEM distributor.
  3. Even with middlemen, it may prove to be difficult, unless buying in bulk. Unless of course you need 100 motherboards.... I imagine a company such as Dell, HP, or Lenovo (IBM) have direct contact with Intel and AMD.
  4. ibuypower and Cyberpower would probably purchase directly from the manufacturers of said product. So if the PC was an ASUS build they buy directly from ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, Corsair etc. Unless there is a middleman in there which very well could be. Manufacturer to Distributor to Company.
  5. AMD is generally cheaper both for processor and motherboard. And the features available for the motherboard are more on par with Intel offerings. Generally speaking you will pay about $50 - $80 less for an AMD than an Intel system. Unfortunately DDR4 is still priced high, as well as graphics cards.
  6. AMD Ryzen and/or Threadripper are now on par with the Intel's CPU lineup finally! Have some good competition now.
  7. I don't think you will lose anything since you stated that it's an older monitor. As for PC detecting yes, it will detect it, and you can right click your desktop and chose how your set up looks. Right click and go to Screen Resolution, then chose the resolution you want the monitor to be at, and you can move it inside that box to where it is oriented, either on your right or left.
  8. I do own this expansion, I just haven't found the time to play yet. But from a lot of videos and Let's Plays that I have seen it seems like a good edition. Although you do receive some of the benefits to Stellaris just on the patch to 2.0 alone. But you wouldn't get the planet killers (Colossi, or Titans) I'm hoping to get a game in this weekend to see how everything plays out.
  9. RWD, FWD, and AWD - depends where you live. I live in Northern Minnesota, and I wouldn't recommend a RWD vehicle, unless you like spinning your tires. No weight in the back makes winter driving a little hectic. If you don't get icy roads, any of those options are good. 2 door or 4 door - Some insurance companies consider 2 door sports cars and your insurance may go up due to this designation. Import vs. domestic - How much do you want to pay for parts? Import parts are usually higher priced than domestic. And also newer imports sometimes require specialists within that manufacturer. If the car matches what you are looking for though, and you maintain it well. It should last you a long time. Just my 2 cents.
  10. Please meet with me whenever you see me online in Discord. I'll get you the links to read the Player's Handbook. And when you feel like you have something you would like to play, hit me up again and we can roll you up a character. See you soon!
  11. I'd be willing to take one more if you want to join my group. Level 6 right now, and I can get you PDF's of the various handbooks. Let me know if you are interested. We play on Sunday at 7 PM EST.
  12. Very cool!! Do you sell these? Or is it more of a hobby? Very creative and neat either way. Thank you for sharing.
  13. I do have room. Sorry this took me awhile to get back to you. If you can meet me today on Discord that would be great we can go over character creation and I will try my best to get you injected into the story. Let me know, Castertant. Game is at 7 PM EST on Roll 20.
  14. I used to play a bit, but not so much anymore. The newest expansion seems interesting, but as far as I see it it's mostly pay to win which doesn't really interest me a whole lot. I did spend a little bit when the Un'goro release was on sale. I haven't played that much at all since the Lich King expansion though.
