what? WEI still exists? I thought they dumped that? (sorry if I missed you are running 7 or something, I only visit here on occasion anymore
and super skimmed to catch up).
Well, welcome back, even if only briefly. And yes, I'm still running "Lucky 7", across the board. I refuse to join the Windows 10, "Evil Cult of the Double Pentacle". (Final answer). I don't own a smartphone either..
The WEI in 7 only goes to 7.9. (That's a score which I can only assume was designed to weed out those who could actually run "Crysis", from the wannabes). Truth to tell, I'm sort of a wannabe myself, since I build "mainstream" machines into gaming cases.
I'm guessing you're talking about a SATA 3 SSD? IDK if I have an 840 or 850 in my, "Sunday go to meetin' box", but it bags the limit, 7.9.. (Although so does the GTX-1050 ti I bought to make my last build , "a real computer"). That's an OC'd "FTW" edition, which embarrassingly enough, I haven't gotten hot enough yet to start the cooling fans. The card's a beast though, it even has a 6 pin plug me in on top.
I toyed with the idea of buying an NVME drive for it, and quickly found out the Z170 micro board doesn't even have a slot for one.
In current events, Newegg has turned into a sh!thole deep enough, that I'm starting to buy my computer parts from Amazon.
I just checked today's, "Shell Shocker", and found out I could buy a $25.00 Domino's gift card for $25.00, and they'd be kind enough to email it to me. (To be fair, they are including a $5.00 bonus card, also email). Way back when I was back in remedial community college for photography, I never dreamed I'd be firing up a printer for this horse ca-ca. Besides, I've tasted Domino's pizza, and I'm sticking to DiGiorno's.
Anyhoo, I have to get back to my "digital archaeology adventure" (Pentium E 6300 (Q2, '09))., and my lard a**ed Maine coon is head butting my leg. It seems it's time for his 2nd can of food for the day.
It's good hearing from someone whose screen alias I recognize. Take care of yourself, "don't hesitate vaccinate". I got the J & J vaccine a couple of weeks ago. It would seem it doesn't strike down those of us in male menopause, and now I can come and go from my house, without 2 or 3 days of panic following the excursion.
