    GTX 1080 Retail Store Availability Only Founders Edition?

    For some reason I had this crazy idea that Nvidia would have plenty of 1080's available. It really sucked having $$ ready to spend, but no product available. I fell for the hype! And.... I was finally lucky enough to score a EVGA 1080 FE on Newegg after many attempts ! So paper launch...

    GTX 1080 Retail Store Availability Only Founders Edition?

    Hey frack you! This was an poorly planned "launch" with shit availability. I had an easier time buying a Radeon X800 XT PE back in the day than this 1080 Flounders Edition. I'm so disgusted that I may just wait for AMD Vega or the inevitable 1080 TI card.

    GTX 1080 Retail Store Availability Only Founders Edition?

    Ahh wtf? You are full of shit. I checked 6 physical stores, Newegg and Amazon. No 1080 to be found. This was a paper launch, terrible availability.

    What was the very first video card you ever bought?

    I had some card like that too. Could it have been the Hollywood Plus? Sigma Designs Hollywood Plus DVD/MPEG-2 Playback Card

    What was the very first video card you ever bought?

    Voodoo 2 PCI, which was a huge piece of shit, and actually slower than my integrated Matrox G200. I returned the V2 and bought a Voodoo 3 2000 PCI, which was a huge upgrade, and a perfect card for UT99.

    Sony Sells A Million PS4s in 24 Hours of North American Launch

    They don't launch with their super polished A++ games because they will sell almost every game they can put on the shelves without the extra effort anyways. Also, publishers realize that the PS3/360 market is huge compared to the potential PS4/Xbone market of about 2-4 million systems by the end...

    Enermax Hoplite ST Lucky Draw

    So far my favorite Enermax product is their power supplies. Never an issue, have owned at least 3 that I can remember. I actually did not know they made anything else until today.
