    I'm sure you'll do it right around the time I get to upgrading to Xenforo 2 which is also around the time Star Citizen releases.

    Speaking of building new PCs, do you guys have any recommendations for what to do with old PC parts in terms of recycling? What about old hard drives?

    Throw them into the ocean and the salt will dissolve most it. Any left over parts will be turned into a reef for the ocean life. Dolphins also love snacking on old GPUs. Don't let these hippies tell you different.

    Does your garbage company have recycling programs? I would have thought most do by now.

    gave up and removed the second gpu. seems running two gpus of different makes but the same brand was not a good idea. gpu-z could tell the difference, but gpu-z was the only thing that could tell the difference

    + then i tried downloading the nvidia drivers for the second gpu and lordy did all hell break loose

    2nd gpu is relegated to the worktable until i can build a remote-rendering rig on it, i guess. bummer, in theory it seemed like an obvious win to plop a second card in and use one for monitors/gaming & the other for rendering, splitting tasks between the two

    also there were computer war crimes committed in removing the 2nd gpu

    it got stuck in the pci-e slot for some reason & the latch got stuck. after about an hour of not so gentle prodding and failing to unstuck the latch, the latch just snapped cleaned off

    miraculously nothing else was harmed; main PC works now that i've rollde back to old drivers, and 2nd gpu at least has no visual scars from our arduous combat
