Since the OSVR HDK2 doesn't work on my laptop I bought a little something. I haven't bought PC parts for a while so I asked on #gamingonlinux
whether I was buying something stupid.
As a result I changed a noname PSU to the Thermaltake one.
Other than that I heard that RAM are usually sold in 2x or 4x kits because even if you buy the same twice you're not guaranteed that it works in Dual Channel. I decided to "risk" it because in my mind they are
supposed to just work.
As far as I could find no online shop in germany sells an RX480 with a cooler that is not the reference design. I heard that the reference cooler isn't even good enough for the stock clocks and it sometimes thermal throttles there, yet XFX sells some quite overclocked models with the exact same reference cooler and for some reason the overclocked models were the only ones in stock... It's also supposed to be quite loud under load, so I hope it's not too much. Some RX 480 with other coolers start shipping next week but I read they often aren't that good. I heard the "PowerColor Radeon RX 480 Red Devil" has one of the best coolers and is an overclocked model too, but online shops expect it to ship in maybe 2 weeks, otherwise I would have definitely bought that one.
What's still super annoying: That debit transactions take so long. If you want your items shipped quickly, you have to use Paypal (+10€ fee I'd have to pay) or a credit card (fees paid by the vendor apparently) and I'm pretty sure they have their main corporate office under american jurisdiction, so I'm not a fan of that either. Still I paid with credit card because that means it will be delivered tomorrow (or by now: today). With a debit transaction they most likely wouldn't even get the money until tomorrow night, meaning they would most likely deliver it monday or tuesday.
Why is it so hard for the banks to create a system where you can quickly pay without being there in person and swiping a card or something like that?
