    A cheap, low-level, gaming video card can be $100-150. A serious card can be up to $1000. A full-out, maximum-effort, top-of-the-line, card can be $1500 or more.

    My entire Windows system cost $680 when new. I later added a $120 card and a $150 SSD. My entire Mac system, which shipped with a better video subsystem than the one I got for the Windows system, and a SSD, cost $1000. There’s no way that I would spend hundreds on a video card. There’s no doubt that multitudes do spend hundreds or thousands on gaming cards.

    Note that professional video people can spend $3000 and more on serious high-end pro video cards, but that’s for work, and the company pays for them, and one good job gets the money back. There’s a reason why high-end video workstations can cost $20,000 to $50,000. (The most expensive gaming box I ever saw was one of Maximum PC’s “unlimited budget” projects, and cost more than $26,000. It had four $2000 video cards driving one each $1500 monitors, a $1800 CPU, and multiple 2 TB SSDs in a RAID 5 array plus multiple 8 TB HDDs in a RAID 5 array. And 40 (that’s forty…) Gb/s Ethernet. And very high end wireless. And a $250 case. And liquid cooling. They wanted to see how far they could go. They succeeded. They are also quite insane.)

    No. Swap him with Jason Fox. After the first meal at the Foxes, he’ll beg to come home.

    That’s an eMac. 17" display, the stand was extra (hey, Apple) and it weighed 50 pounds, more if the stand was attached. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMac

    I was once dragooned into admining a flock of them for a high school. Apple had add-ins designed for education, a.k.a. keeping the little monsters on leashes. Or exactly why this one was being moved to the kitchen. The school went Windows later on; this was an error, as they did NOT invest in a full-out Microsoft ADDS network and the little monsters chewed through their leashes. It then went Chromebook; this was a bigger mistake, the only entity in charge of a Chromebook is Google. The little monsters no longer had leashes.

    Betamax format was used for years by video pros, such as TV news crews, they just called it ‘quarter-inch tape’. It may still be in use. Some specialized computer backup systems also used that format. (Same with Digital Audio Tape, that format lived for a long time in IT departments worldwide despite its having died quickly at the consumer level. Note that DAT is not regular audio cassettes, but audio cassettes lived in some home computer setups for a long time, too.)

    I still have my old VHS machine. I haven’t turned it on in years, but it’s still around. And I still have some old tapes.

    Vandy, maybe. Even UConn and Nebraska. But the Jets?! They play the Bills, the Pats, and the Fish twice each. I don’t see the Jets winning any of those games. They play the Ravens, the Steelers, the Packers, the Bears, the Vikings… not winning there, either. They have Detriot, Jax, and the Seahawks… but in December, when all that they’d be playing for would be pride, and they’re the Jets, they have nothing to be proud of. Doomed, I tell you, doomed. 0-16. You saw it here first.
