Default Scrolling ad issue.

Really?!? Um, this ad does not show the remaining posts after you scroll. And when are plumbers dealing with electrical panels?

I enjoy some ads. I get a bunch of ads from faucet sites and will look around to see what's new or just odd that I haven't seen before.

Sorry, always forget to include that info.

Using my phone, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Latest updated android os. Full site through the icon on my screen that says Internet, it's just the stock Galaxy internet browser. I haven't cleared cookies/cache in awhile, I'll do that.

If you think getting Chrome or one of the other ones would be better then I guess I'll try one out, just don't know which would be best to use.

I rarely ever use my phone to view this site. There are some buggy things, the layout feels really clunky, and if I've only got a phone it's likely that I don't even need to be on here anyway.

I've used chrome in the past without the ad issue.

Why is that?

I use my phone because I hate computers, I don't own a current model. My last computer was a $3k purchase from Gateway, when they had a brick & mortar store! That was easily over 15 years ago. I hate dealing with computers but know I need to learn them. I have been researching building one, mainly for gaming, but going to also plan for doing other things with it.

That's going to happen fairly soon, as soon as I pull the trigger on buying a gpu if I can find a decent deal.

I've been building my own for the last 15 years or so now. I usually get a year or two old technology and sink about 400-500 into the machine.

The GPU is going to be the tough part due to all the stupid bitcoin mining that's going on. I was looking at upgrading mine, but I wasn't spending 500+ on a 3 year old card.

First time for me, looking to stay in a reasonable amount close to that. Hardest part has been deciphering the differences between manufacturers. Heck, even within the same manufacturer they'll have many different items of basically the same thing and the price will be the same or like $20 more. Since i don't really know 100% everything i will end up doing with the computer, kinda hard knowing what is important or not. Also having to look up lingo that gets thrown around by the tech channels I've watched has been a hoot.

Since I don't need the best of the best, and for possible upgrade in prob 2yrs, I'm going with a Ryzen 5 2600 and decided to go AMD with the gpu, considering I'm not a 4k gamer that needs 200fps and is willing to shell out way too much for Nvidia gpu.

Found a XFX brand Amd RX570 4gb at my local Best Buy for $180 that I'm probably going to get this weekend. Could also get a 8gb RX580 for $250 from there, but i don't think I'll need it.

Yeah there are a lot of brands out there, and a lot of junk.

I've had the best luck over the years with ASUS motherboards. I've had one failure, and i got it RMA'ed. The rest were just pitched or sold because of upgrades. I've never bought anything other than Kingston ram and never had a failure there either.

If you can afford it, the best upgrade i've ever made is an SSD hard drive. It was a night and day difference as far as program loading times go.

I'm currently running an XFX branded geforce GPU, and have no complaints other than it's old. :P

Mine is a samsung EVO but only 250GB. It's always on the full side, so I have to constantly rearrange what I have installed. I'd love a bigger one or a second one, but can't afford to do so right now.

Have you checked local ads? Loads of people giving away PC's for pennies on the dollar. I found one that will run fortnite for my kid for 50 bucks. You can hardly buy a pc case with power supply for that amount of money.


www.pricewatch.com is a great place to compare prices on some of this stuff, although I usually find that it's less headache if I just get everything from newegg.
