    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    I'll believe AMD when I can see it in actual usage reviews and buy it from a store. AMD likes to talk big and then release cards at current gen prices but matching last gen performance. I do hope they can do something, but it's unfortunate they couldn't meet or beat nvidia to release. I would...

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    on a side note RIP anyone trying to sell a 2000 series card right now on the FS/FT forum or ebay, although lots of dumb people on ebay so if anyone is selling here go post to ebay fast and bottom price and offload before you won't get a bent penny for your gear. $499 for 2080ti performance, and...

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    and like usual AMD no where to be found, and when they do they'll release big navi at 3080 prices at last gen performance. I'm all for giving AMD a shot if they actually release something meaningful, but with this jump in performance and price that team green just dropped it's going to be hard...

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 $99 (Upcoming deal 9/2-9/27)

    Just got a Costco flyer in the mail. 9/2-9/27 they are having the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 setup for $99 which is a steal for that setup. $40 the normal price of $140. https://www.costco.com/klipsch-promedia-2.1-thx-computer-speakers.product.100657992.html

    $150-$200 best value? 280x has died

    personally I'd try to score a nice 980ti off ebay, shouldn't have any trouble getting one of those on the lower end. It's not the most recent but still a beast of a card.

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    ^ this I've had a steady flow of AMD GPUs through the various PCs in my house and a 5700 in my kids right now and haven't had a single issue. I'm sure some people have problems with AMD drivers just like some have them with Nvidia, but honestly across both ecosystems I've had next to no...

    Is a more expensive projector screen really better or worth it?

    what price are you talking about for expensive? I have a $50 pulldown I got from fleabay and it was decent, but upgraded to Elite Screens Sable Frame B2 from amazon for $200 and it was night and day better, it's also a fixed frame which is so nice if you have the space. I love it.

    Are EPYC chips difficult to find?

    It's so sad what businesses do with their old hardware. I work for a giant financial processor and we literally decommission perfectly capable and maintained hardware just because of age and that's it. These are 10/20/30k+ server racks that just get piled up and we pay a company to come and...

    Just got my first projector - Is this decent?

    looks like a nice unit! I've been in the market for a used one too and finding good deals on used tech is so hard. I'm not a low baller, but people be asking like %90 return on 5 year old tech gear is insane, that and shipping. $60 to ship a projector. WTF you smoking. I shipped a 50lb laser...

    [H]OT - Microcenter AMD sale (2600x - 79.99, 3600x - 159.99, 3700x - 259.99, 3800x - 279.99, 3950x - 699.99) + $20 mobo discount!

    Stupid Microcenter, they were literally in the process of opening a new store in my city right as the 2008 financial stuff went down and they pulled the plug. Soooo pissed, sooo many missed deals. F U Microjerks being In Store only and not in every state.

    Google Pixel 3

    Samsung phones are pretty clean these days and you can uninstall most of their apps. You can replace the dialer if you so wish. like %90 (don't quote me on that number lol) of samsung apps are just on the google play store now, they just happen to come pre loaded.

    Google Pixel 3

    I wonder if you could try to re-flash the latest image or maybe an older image and see if it correct. Not just a factory reset. Could be hardware though, and it's unfortunate Google seems to be pretty sketch on support. I used to use Nexus and Pixels (before making the switch back to Samsung)...
