    Thanks, I picked up a Mac copy for my mom who just so happened to express a need for Excel the other day.

    First Time Real Speaker Set Up - Wireless Conversion Help

    No way around it, you're gonna need dedicated amplification with an AV receiver likely being your easiest solution.

    I don't recall but I assume my past self registered for 3080 and 3090 model notifications as well so I'm probably already in those queues. Doesn't seem like the step up would do me any good.

    Wait, are you saying I can step this 3070 up to a 3080 or even a 3090? All of a sudden I'm feeling decidedly less Jesus-like....

    Curious then, if you have experience with both the good and bad, why was your initial reaction to warn against deeds you yourself have undertaken with success? Your words implied the only possible result was having kindness taken advantage of, which is not representative of your own experience.

    Aha! Perhaps there is an unlucky gamer chap in this very thread who despite vigorous effort has not yet procured a RTX card? If there is such an individual whom a quorum can vouch for, willing to solemnly swear on scout's honor it won't flipped, and has a lot of trade feedback please step forth!

    I see this world has jaded you my friend. Fear not for me as I am excellent judge of character. I once was able to identify a stranger's profession as a doctor despite he being off duty solely by the angle of his eyebrows. In the off chance I'm unable to find such a humble and deserving gamer it...

    Perish the thought. Being GPU Jesus I'm confident I can spot sin as easily as a cheeto stain on a plain white T. Of course I would only sell to the most deserving (aka most ass kissing).

    Man I just got (another) EVGA Product Availability Update Notification, this time for a RTX 3070 FTW. At some point in the past I must've registered to be notified on several different GPU models because a few weeks back I received a notice for a EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3, which is now sitting...

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    Imagine my surprise yesterday when out of the blue I got notification for EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING, 08G-P5-3755-KR, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate, which I had completely forgotten about. It came out to 627.45 USD altogether so I figured why not? Crazy thing is...

    Is Windows 10 20H2 the worst windows yet?

    I have a Win 10 primary desktop, multiple MacOS laptops, and a server running Linux in my home. I recently swapped my desktop's Win 10 LTSB for Win 10 Pro in order to play Cyberpunk 2077 and I'm honestly surprised at how crappy this operating system is, especially since I had no complaints with...

    looking to upgrade unibiqiti AC PRO access points.

    Both the previous AC Pro and the AC HD are set to VHT20 for 2.8 and VHT40 on 5 GHz. The AC PRO is still on my network (just moved to the basement) so I'm not just recalling the settings from memory. AFAIK it's as much an apples-to-apples comparison as one can get.

    looking to upgrade unibiqiti AC PRO access points.

    I actually just replaced an AC PRO with a HD earlier this week. As a drop in replacement, my wireless speeds have gone from ~200 to 350 mbps out of a 500 mbps internet connection.
