It really is insane. I think about the prices students from out of town or first time renters at 18-22. I know I couldn't afford paying that type of rent alone back then. Guess it's a must for college students to share bedrooms, idk.

Are you living in your JEEP? Is this a camper spot for rent? That is retarded cheap unless you're sharing the space.

I originally paid $350 to live in a 4 BR house with two buddies, but my parents condo just opened up and I pay $300 to live here by myself

I am literally less than one block from the beach, though. Not cheap.

The guy a few houses down from me opened his garage the other day and he had a lambo and a ferrari in it. He leaves the Bentley parked at the curb due to not having enough room. No lie.

Some girl I see around has a Maserati she wrapped in hot pink.

Ridiculous how much money there is concentrated in this one town.

My friend I literary meant playing D3 and DayZ a few years back lives in SF. He just became a financial adviser and his GF is a Chemical Engineer with a P.E. They can barely get by with their combined income. Forced to commute into the city as they live in San Jose. L.A. and SF are both retarded ridiculous.

Yes we have meant IRL. Went on a few couple trips together over the years. Dude is seriously my closest friend.

L.A. would be cheaper than where I am. Have a business associate that has a larger place than me for $4200 per month but he is like 3 miles inland. He's in Redondo Beach area which is also cheaper overall. Another associate is a half a mile from me with a badass place he pays $10K per month for. He could own anything but he and his wife like moving all the time.

We are all considering moving to Portugal or the South of France for a little while next year.

Found a 6 bedroom villa badass place in Portugal on the beach for $2900 per month. Like 6K sq ft with a pool and fully furnished.

2 broken NDA reviews so far have it about 2% faster in gaming than the 7700K and 45% for multithreaded at the same clocks.

960 EVO 250GB SSD
1TB WD Caviar Blue 7200rpm
32GB RAM (4X8) G.Skill Trident Z
Quadro P2000

Also ordered a another Asus 21.5" monitor (space limitations), and a Fractal Designs Define R5 Silent case.

Everything but the damn static hand thing should be here tomorrow. Total was $2400

Nope. Everything I've read says to use one. I guess I could open up the windows and stay off of the carpet

Well. I would say YES if you live in like the Great White North where the humidity is 0%.

If you live in the South along the Gulf Coast. Nahhh... maybe 1 day out the year in February but not right now with the hot winters.

I would be surprised if any of the guys that have built PCs in here have ever used one.

And that is A LOT of builds
