I would agree, but phasing out our most reliable source of environmentally-friendly power is foolish.

Nuclear power gets a lot more **** than it deserves.

It has very low operating costs, produces sufficient energy to meet demand, and has a variety of other economic benefits that can’t be ignored. While accidents and the environmental impact of spent fuel need to be considered, we simply don’t have any better options for long-term mass energy production. If we were to invest in facilities that can reuse spent fuel rods, it would be near perfect. And, while it's not entirely renewable, uranium is currently in abundant supply.

If better solutions come along, I will gladly re-examine its future. For now though, nuclear remains as one of the only viable options to solving Earth’s increasing energy needs while maintaining low CO2 emissions as a whole industry.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Windows is expensive"

An operating system is like a mattress: you invest in it because you will use it nearly every day (or night).

Why are mattresses so expensive? The manufacturers know that you will pay for it because you need it.

However, a mattress, like Windows, isn't for everyone. Some people don't need a bed and prefer to use a hammock or a mat just as some people don't need the features that Windows offers, like greater videogame, application, and utility support.

Most Linux-based distributions are free and offer a similar level of productivity and media-consumption software and, on the other end of the spectrum, Apple offers their own operating systems that are only available for their respective products. At the end of the day, this is their price and you will probably pay it.

One positive in a sea of fundamental negatives. Why attempt to solve a problem that can so easily be avoided in the first place?

The shielding will never be perfect when you still have analog components exposed to EMI within the system. The primary issue is having the analog outputs within the case; you're still exposing the signal to more noise than you need to. An external DAC is inherently better due to being external to the source of electromagnetic emissions.

Soundcards are DACs. The only difference between a soundcard and an external DAC is that the soundcard is exposed to more EMI than the external one. Why spend more money on an inferior product that has inherent drawbacks compared to an alternative solution?

Have you tried refreshing and scanning for disks within disk management in the setup?

If that fails, try booting from a Linux ISO and formatting from there. I doubt anything is wrong with the drive as the BIOS is detecting it.

No. If you want to upgrade your soundcard, look at some external DACs, instead.

Personally, I would like to see a 5-star system implemented, like early YouTube, as it gives a more accurate representation of user sentiments without requiring a large sample size. The issue with this system is that it's kind of hard to implement in a "modern"-looking way that is also convenient for all users to use.

In regards to your idea, I like it. But I feel as though it would be more advantageous towards usability if OPs could select a comment to be displayed at the top of the comments' section if they find it particularly useful, if it solves their problem, or if it adequately answers their question. Basically, it would be the equivalent of marking a post as "Solved".

Here's something that might work for you in the meantime (search this with Google): "site:insert URL here insert search term here"

The issue with this method is that it's a third-party search and it's lacking many results.

RAM is built to meet JEDEC specifications and motherboard manufacturers support RAM that meets the JEDEC specifications. They simply can't test every DIMM available on the market for compatibility.

Use the System Builder, it will tell you everything you need to know about your build.

Here's your list for reference: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7BvbnH

No compatibility issues were found. I also took the liberty of going through to the manufacturers' websites to guarantee everything would be compatible.
