    US’s largest pipeline crippled by cyber attack

    Depends on the car and its engine size -- some sedans can have almost 20 gallon tanks.

    What is your backup GPU?

    Intel integrated GPU! :D...though if I were desperate, I have access to an ancient GTX 470, and possibly a GTX 970.

    What do people think of the Nvidia RTX Titan?

    May as well make the switch if it isn't going to cost you much if anything overall, just to get a more valuable card. You may not see much if any of a performance increase over your 2080ti with the tasks you asked about, though.

    The Absolute State of the MMORPG Genre

    Hah, so kind of like "The World", the MMO that .hack was about? I'd be into it despite there being a teensy tiny risk of going into a coma if your character dies in game, NBD. :D

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Kind of working on getting rid of some of my classic game stuff -- recently having sold my GameCube. Was looking at selling my SNES, but I'm going to visit my parents this weekend and take it to see if my lil' niece and nephew are interested in it at all. They are pretty spoiled lol, so they may...

    I can get a RTX 3070 for MSRP (actual MSRP) should I ?

    It may be bottlenecked some, but you could upgrade your core system components down the road. It's roughly 2080ti performance -- you will still see some nice FPS gains! :D

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll give them both a try, also looking at maybe playing Chun. About the grabs, totally -- I feel like I get away with far too many dash up throws just because it's online and his dash is fast (and throw range is good).

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Didn't play MK11...but I did play some Street Fighter V in an attempt to get back into the game for local interest. There are lots of small things about the game that annoy me, but I'm trying to give it another chance since it's changed some since I last played. Really a lot of it I think comes...

    Noctua NH-D15 RAM height for second fan?

    I have the NH-D15S and Corsair LPX RAM, and even still the front 140mm fan that I added pokes out over the heatsink, and that's with it literally sitting on top of the RAM haha. Works fine though, the only issue I could see is if the clips don't attach properly with you having to have that fan...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yeah that's exactly what happened to me with the Strix and FE, and I was there right at the beginning as well! Except it gave me the add to cart button on the individual card pages, but wouldn't add -- I refreshed my cart and they were apparently both sold out already lol. It feels random as to...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I got extremely lucky and managed to purchase an EVGA 3080 XC3 from BB today. I had an Asus and FE both give me the yellow button long after they had actually already sold out so that was pretty disappointing. I was about to bail, but refreshed a few times later just out of curiosity, and...

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    The bots practically OWN Amazon -- consider that place impossible to buy a GPU from right now.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Didn't manage to play anything this weekend, but only because I was assembling my new build! I did end up buying Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate though, my first MK game since like UMK3 I think.

    Affinity Designer, Photo, Publisher and Textures, Overlays, Fonts 50% off

    I bought these a while back as well -- I think when I got 'em they were on sale for $30 or so each at the time. Designer is especially nice as a cheap way to make vector graphics.
