OK, we'll try this again. Maybe this time, they'll have actual arguments.

Explain to me why 16:9 is shit but 16:10 is God-tier without resorting to muh golden ratio pseudoscience or using an argument that would make 16:10 shit and 1:1 God-tier.
>>
I mean, the only real reason is that you have more pixels.


But considering the market availability of 16:10 monitors and their associated price premium, 16:9 is the only sane option these days.

16:10 isn't bad, but it's not worth 2x the cost over an identical 16:9 panel.

The market has simply settled on 16:9, if you're whining about 16:10 in 2018 honestly it just makes me assume you're some form of mentally ill.

But 1:1 is god tier.

It's dependent on the usage. Obviously if your main usage is media, 16:9 is perfect. For work, 16:10 is just better. It's just something that you have to feel yourself.

You could get a used Nomos, for more than 300, though. Or a used Junghans.
Otherwise I'd definitely go with Seiko, especially if you don't want a diver.

I have the SARB033, bought it for 270 basically new 2 years ago. Nice watch. Lurk a bit, keep asking questions and check out all the Seiko with the 6R15 movement with the SARB/SARX etc. codes, don't rush your decision, you might change your opinion over time, take your time for an informed decision. In the end taste is personal but I figure you'll have to compromise if money is an issue.

I might have forget some options.

Nigga, you declare when you post it what you're shipping. You'll tell the nice lady behind the counter that it's a "cardboard box". Then you tell her it's worth "$25".

If you have to order a spare part for your car from China they declare the value of the part, not the value of your fucking car.

Is Steven Burke from GAMERS NEXUS the most fatty fat hypocrite in all of youtube? I think he should legit kill himself. So let me get this straight, he is allowed to take a dump on Cooler Master and tell them to "mature", but two weeks later, he is basically like a worse immature kid than Cooler Master where he does damage control like a fucking moron just because some of HardwareCancuks viewers saw through the click bait video and downvoted Dmitry's """""""video""""

Love Live Sunshine is far from shit, it's probably the best idol anime out there, the first LL had the girls in Tokyo, while the Aqours girl have it a lot harder when they live in a more hidden place.

Please finish it before you spout such nonsense, the second season had the best songs in LL anime history and Wooby worked together with Leah which in turn also made Leah a more dimensional character, and the movie will probably be the end but still give a lot back, more than the stupid Honk from future thing SIP had.

So the only things we’re left with that aren’t practically completely silent are case fans and a GPU which doesn’t run all the time. I’ll buy the rest of your arguments. Maybe you are the market for all these mini/NUC units that are being offered, I personally don’t see the appeal.

Invest on a case with better acoustics, a quieter PSU and quieter refrigeration system.
>bulky
You can solve this by buying small form factor cases.
>powerbills
Make sure you have tuned your power settings to the appropriate level for your current task.

>Xeon
At work some departments have dual xeon systems and they are very quiet except when people start rendering stuff and the GPU fans go up.
