    Witcher 3: GOTY Edition $9.99

    Honestly, I wouldn't mod it for visuals or fast travel. I've played through twice now and don't regret not looking for mods. Later in the game, when you reach Skellige, there is an option to purchase maps from a vendor for 200 gold that enable fast travel to other points on the islands. At...

    Witcher 3: GOTY Edition $9.99

    I didn't expect the story for Blood and Wine to be so gripping. Like... "what the fuck am I feeling" good.

    Your CPU progression

    This is by no means complete. There have always been multiple PCs, and I can't remember the exact specs of them all. 386-SLC 25Mhz 486-DX/33 Cyrix 150 120Mhz Pentium 1 200Mhz MMX passively cooled with Micron heatsink. Love that thing. Still have it. PSU is probably on borrowed time. AMD...

    Command and Conquer Remastered *Deal Dead, now 19.99

    Bought this just to hear Hellmarch. Honestly. The full motion videos look worse than expected on a 1440 screen. But that’s to be expected The high-definition fishing snap in until a minute or two after the first round. So at first I was fumbling to understand why it looked blocky and why I...

    Anyone running their 3080/3090 with a vertical GPU mount?

    Bummer. But at least there is some consistency. I wonder if this is specific to the Strix x570-e

    Anyone running their 3080/3090 with a vertical GPU mount?

    No. That's something to test. I went function over form and ripped out the cable. Honestly, I am curious to know what electrical differences there are between a PCI 3.0 and 4.0 connector.

    Anyone running their 3080/3090 with a vertical GPU mount?

    I ran into some odd issues with my Phanteks 90 degree PCIe riser cable. Ended up pulling it out of my system. The riser cable worked with my old EVGA 980 SC and my new X570 motherboard. However, when I installed my new 3070 Founders Edition card, things went sideways. Details below, for other...
