    I Broke a $900 Motherboard

    And this is why I hate these types of sockets. Sadly AMD is even going that direction with AM5. I have had replacement RMA motherboards sent to me at work that were bent right out of the box. So it's totally possible they were like that when OP got it.

    Borderlands 3

    I got this back from some AMD bundle giveaway. It's ok... not as good as BL2. The story is bad the primary bad guys are annoying AF. But if you just want to play a looter shooter and ignore the stupid story, it's ok. Especially for free.

    Gravis UltraSound Rev 2.2 with original box, instructions, software

    I remember these, my roommate had one. I had an SB Pro.... so this is also crazy. $228 and counting... I think I gave that thing away like 25 years ago or got like $20 for it

    So is using CSM a problem? Does it impact performance or anything?

    Gran Turismo 7

    I got GT7 for my bday.... I envy you people with wheel setups. I'm not loving this game with the gamepad. This game is certainly beautiful.... but is it fun? Doing the driving tests and slogging through the low end races in the junk cars.... I'm not having fun yet. To me, I have more fun...

    Wolfenstein 3D secrets revealed by John Romero in lengthy post-mortem chat

    Yeah we all remember the Larry games and King's quest. One of my personal fav's were the Space quest games.

    Wolfenstein 3D secrets revealed by John Romero in lengthy post-mortem chat

    You are thinking of Forsaken. It was a glide/3dfx powered 3d Descent type game... and it was glorious in 1998. It also gave me massive motion sickness, but so was so cool to play and look at that I would force myself to do it until I got physically ill...

    Wolfenstein 3D secrets revealed by John Romero in lengthy post-mortem chat

    Interesting article. Funny how Sierra missed out big time on buying up Id, all over $100k which really is peanuts.

    Madden 22 + Surviving Mars "free" on Amazon Prime Gaming

    Don't care about Madden (hell I didn't even know they made a PC version), and already have Surving Mars. Did get some Destiny 2 swag though.

    2080 Super vs. 3070Ti: Do you recommend the upgrade?

    Prob not worth it for a 20% bump. Sit tight until 4xxx next gen.

    Warm Ryzen CPUs getting that price drop ?

    Funny I was looking at the 5600G or 5700G as a backup plan if my GPU decided to croak on me. No jinx! <lights a candle>

    Warm Ryzen CPUs getting that price drop ?

    Thanks.... I'm not dying, got a cold or something (no fever so prolly not Rona...) and just don't want to deal with the crowds at MC. Maybe next week, we'll see.... I don't really *need* this, just want.

    Warm Ryzen CPUs getting that price drop ?

    I tried BB pricematch and they flat out said they would not match Microcenter bc it is in local store only, cannot ship. Don't think it matters anyway the BB site says Delivery Not Available (and if I wanted to go to a store to pick it up, I'd just go to MC anyway) but maybe that's due to stock...
