Added a GTX 1050 2G OC video card to the AMD 8 Core build. Installing drivers and updates. Then adding a 250gb SSD and cloning. Checking benchmarks then it's ready For Sale. Figure around the $500 range for this beauty.

Got a Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E250BW) coming tomorrow for the Thermaltake Snow Open Frame build. Because it's PCIe and not a SATA M.2 it'll allow me to keep all 6 standard SATA ports active on the MSI Z270 MoBo. Using an M.2 SATA SSD would disable one or more of the standard SATA ports.

The 960 EVO M.2 SSD is installed.

Bit of a PITA to clone. My normal Partition program wouldn't do the clone in Pre-OS mode. Had to use Windows to create a system image to the 2TB HDD already installed. Removed the original 128gb M.2 SSD and booted from a Windows 10 Repair disc and loaded the System Image onto the new SSD. Booted fine after that. Then ran into problems moving/resizing partitions going from a 128gb to 256gb SSD. Again my normal Partition program was complaining about issues and refused to do it.

Had to boot from a GParted Live CD with a USB optical drive. Did the resizing/moves and rebooted no problems. Windows did a quick disk check at startup and it's all running fine now.

Running some benchmarks to make sure everything is good.

Samsung EVO is setup in the Intel i5 Snow open frame build.

Putting the finishing touches on the AMD 8 core build. Got an M.2 128GB SSD to mount on the motherboard and clone the OS etc. Also has a 2TB HDD for Data Storage. Was going to use a Seagate standard 2.5" SSD but I had the M.2-128GB SSD laying around and only paid $49 for it.

Once that's done and checked out off to Craig's losers List it goes!

Downloading the free Rocket League game I got with the purchase of the Nvidia GTX 1050 video card. Will see if it's worth a crap and pass it on to the buyer of the AMD 8 core PC build I finished recently.

Review coming up on the new Amazon Echo Show. Got it set up and playing Music and Videos. Waiting for my Wireless Cameras to get here tomorrow to see how they integrate. Audio sounds great. An improvement over my original Amazon Echo. Supposed to be able to make free video calls to other Echo owners. And lots more........

The completely wireless camera is now set up outside the front door of the Ronbo Man Cave Abode. Push and Email notifications sent to my cell phone when any creepers trespass within it's field of vision!

Runs on 4x CR123 batteries that are supposed to be good for around 6 months depending on use. No wires or power or network cables. WiFi Communications.

What characteristics are relevant for modern games?
Let's discuss about video games. Do you like to play and how often do you play?
And also I would like to know your attitude to gambling? Have you tried card games, casinos, slots? I only like ainsworth slots online games. At least it gives me pleasure. I even win money sometimes.

I'm not a "Gamer" so I don't know what you're asking nor can I make any recommendations regarding "Gaming".

A number of my builds are geared towards General Purpose Performance computing or NAS...Network Attached Storage and Home Server uses.

I suppose some of my builds would be able to be used as "Mild Gaming" systems but I don't pretend to be an expert on that. I'm sure you can Google your questions and come up with all sorts of opinions on what's Hot and what's Not! I'm not getting in the middle of that Minefield Discussion.

Love that camera system Ronbo. Got one for my front door, plan on doing another one for the back door as well
Did you get the Reolink Argus or Argus 2? They're nice little cameras. Runs completely on batteries and WiFi connectivity. Just screw the mounting plate onto whatever surface and magnetically attach the camera. No wires or power cords.

I just ordered an Argus 2 with rechargeable battery and Solar Panel . I'll review that once i get it and run it for awhile.

I believe mine is the Argust 2. Just has the battery pack no solar panel. It's been running the past 3 months on the last chargeup. I like their system but i hate having to "subscribe" every month for their free package...


But I suppose thats what you get for free. Also sorry for the super late response
