I watched a video on Youtube this afternoon which pretty much concluded that for gaming on average going from the 580 to the 590 would yield 5 - 10 more frames per second… I’m not sure that’s worth the extra cost.

Yeah its certainly incremental if you already have a 580 but since the 590 is cheaper than a 1060 and offers a higher framerate, that's the target they were going after. If you don't have a video card, may as well go for the cheaper of the two options.

Personally I wish I could plunk down the cash since it could be a pretty big jump from my 480.

But thank &*@#($&*(# god the GPU prices have fallen back down to earth. Goddamn miners.

I finally got my dnetc flush working under Windows 10, which seems to have helped stabilize my keyrate a little. For some reason what I used to do doesn't work but when I did it an inexplicably more complicated way it worked so (shrug).

Unfortunately a bad flash wiped out my PC at work so the 1050 is out of commission. Ended up finding gobs of identical motherboards for $15-25 on eBay so I bought a few. Looks like I've got a couple good candidates. Company bought a couple and I bought a couple.

Unfortunately we're in the middle of a self-inflicted office reshuffle so everyone's screaming about printers and internet connectivity and inexplicable self-inflicted wounds that could have been caught if only they had done a dry run on their material before they needed it... all while I'm supposed to be moving my office. Containing said PC that needs to be worked on.

sorry to hear about the 1050. I hope you are past the office reshuffle!

Going in 6 hours early today to finish the office move. Moving a work table damn near killed me after it fell on me so I decided to cut my losses the last night I was working. The furniture is all moved I just have the stuff that was on the furniture left to move. Soldering station, books, Clown Without Pity doll...

I work for a school so we had Christmas->New Years off for break, students are still off until next week, so I've got a little time to get myself situated and bring that system back to life before the craziness begins again.
