Like really? That's what your concerned about? How long it will take not the fact that your students may fail because you made it far to difficult?

/rant over.
I passed so never have to deal with her again. Thank goodness.
nah its good. My Maths teacher always made her tests far harder than what you call finals. Put simply, when the end of year exams came, our entire class sailed through it with 95% of us gaining A. It was even investigated due to the fact this was unheard of.

She was my GCSE teacher, and I would call her all throughout my university degree. She helped me through it all. Simpsons rule is something I still cannot fully grasp, yet she spent a whole weekend planning how to teach it to me over the phone given the distance apart we were. Don't think I can ever be grateful enough.

Take it as a plus that you passed a higher tier exam!

Was looking at a Kingston a1000 nvme SSD. I can get a 240GB for half the cost of any other 240GB nvme SSD. It's only catch is that it's a 1500R/1000W speed instead of the usual 3000+ speeds like a 970 Evo. Heck I could get a 480GB for a few $ more than a 970 Evo 250GB

Does anybody have a similar speed drive and is it even noticeable? I doubt it would be. Just curious on opinions. It's just for a boot drive.

I bought the 240GB Kingston A1000 as a boot drive a few weeks ago and haven't noticed any speed issues at all. The only reason I went for NVMe was that it was only a few quid more than the cheapest SATA M.2 drive.

For most day to day tasks you won't really benefit from NVMe speeds anyway, it's only if you're doing 4K video editing etc it really starts making a difference. I'd definitely recommend as a boot drive on a price/real world performance basis. In hindsight I'm so glad I didn't spend double for a Samsung 970 Evo, the performance of that drive would be wasted on me.

With all the spam I think we may as well just ask Tom to change the name of the site to "chinese spam site" at this rate XD

Wonder how long before the spammer makes a new account and starts spamming again.

@WYP - Are you going to bench Monster Hunter World ?

Already getting A LOT of negative reviews on Steam due to no 21:9 support and generally bad performance, Looks to be another crappy port from Capcom.

Capcom have always focussed on console arcade games. Wouldnt expect anything else really.

Although SF5 started off terrible and resulted in a good adaption on the pc eventually.
