    Best Buy Beta

    Or more accurately she let one employee invest into her? On subject though If this gave same day delivery to my house for all the store pickup shit I buy from there I would pay it. Even better if the concierge was able to put my name on a GPU before they drop.

    2.5g issues, Do I need a switch?

    Yea I went ahead & ordered a 2.5gbit switch today. Its quite the task to run anything new even in the same room with the cable management I have everywhere. So I am hopefully going to have it all done at once. Already gotta pull shit apart because I got a new mouse & had to run a new displayport...

    2.5g issues, Do I need a switch?

    yeah I know that switch has some miles on it. The link you have isn’t even to the chipset I’m using now but the issue is identical between the Intel and realtek.

    2.5g issues, Do I need a switch?

    Title isnt exactly what the question is.. I am having issues with random drops while connected via ethernet. Going to try to step through whats going on in order Base setup is Cat 5e going to a DLink DGS-1024D Everything was good with no issues using onboard intel gigabit ethernet. 25'...

    Meshify Mini C microatx king?

    The O11 Mini is probably the most versatile case out there without being super large. My build is in it now. Just put it together this weekend & have it mostly done. Waiting on Unifan's to get here before I complete it. The motherboard tray's modularity is what really makes it. Its not a hugely...

    Microcenter has dropped price ...AMD 5800x $429

    I was in the same school of thought.. Did get a 5800x though.. But not till I could snag one for 400 shipped (from the FS/T forums so no tax). This made it slightly cheaper then the 5600x per core. Which I already had, but I needed another CPU for my kid. So instead of her getting a 3600x for...

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    This is my first custom loop. 5600x & rx6800 under EK blocks in a NR200p. Single 240 rad I am finding is not enough. I was going to add a 2nd 240 in the top, but my daughter had another idea. She sees the shiny RGB & wants a gaming rig of her own so I am moving some over to a O11 Mini with dual...

    What water-block for ASUS KO RTX 3070 OC?

    Hey I love seeing this. I actually bought the 3070 KO & then the same Bkyski block from Aliexpress for my first watercooled build.. Ended up buying another GPU that I could get a block for much faster (Reference rx6800 so the EK blocks were readily available) and sold the 3070 local for the cost...

    I was going to build a new gaming PC last month... But couldnt find a PSU & I didnt want to re-use my current one as I wanted to pass it down to my girlfriend who was going to pass her PC down to her daughter... Couldnt find a PSU at a half way rasonable price so bought a new NAS & 6x 10TB...

    Best place to buy a new phone outright?

    What kinda phone you getting? Direct from the manufacturer gets my vote for new. Swappa for used.

    New phone under $600

    My gf traded in her v30 for the 3a XL and she is digging the speed increase. Those are quite the performers for the cost, especially if you got a trade in to get it for nearly nothing.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection 94% OFF on Steam

    Never played any of the borderlands stuff, but my & my girlfriend both just purchased this. I play pretty much exclusively FPS & she plays RPG's.. Maybe this will be the first game we can play together in a long time.

    Twitch Streamer Ninja Was Paid $1 Million by EA to Stream 'Apex Legends'

    Apex would of taken off without a dime paid to the top streamers on launch. It's a damn good game and it's f2p. Would it of been this same meteoric overnight hit, no not at all.. But it's a damn good example in a very popular segment.

    LG V40 ThinQ - OMG this thing is crazy cool
