I bought a VR headset the other week that you put your phone into. I've tested it out with a few things and it's pretty cool. It ended up costing me $24AU and seems go well with my Galaxy S5.

Not a common problem... In fact, it's the kind of problem that would drive the technically inclined nuts!! Like a CASE causing a computer not to work.. You try everything else, and it turns out to be the case... WTF?!?!?!?

I wish I had a $50,000 PC :( it's only 5G (4.6 current used, parted out value) And yes, my PC is still worthless without its Games SSD :( WAY TO RUB IT IN... BASTARD!!!

Of course, if you'd like to donate $30 I can finish my PC and then be happy with it.. If not, I'll have to wait 2 weeks :olol:

I blame Intel.. I could sell my 4790K for more now USED, than the brand new price.

If skylake CPU's weren't $100 - $200 more than last gen for a marginal performance gain. I might upgrade, End of the year I'm looking forward to see if AMD can finally do something right again, I REALLY hope so.

Also. I have bought a pioneer blu ray writer, and 3 DVD writers for $40

going to build a media PC
