    [DEAD] Apex Race Parts SM-10 Wheels - Buy 3, Get 1 Free (Camaro, Corvette, Mustang, Tesla, Lexus)

    Where are you in the Bay Area? I'm in SF and I feel like you need an SUV to drive here. I actually drive a LandCruiser and feel the roads here are beating it to shit.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Just got ColorControl going yesterday. Awesome little app. I LOVE the fact that it turns the TV on and off with the computer. I don't need to touch the remote anymore!

    [DEAD] Apex Race Parts SM-10 Wheels - Buy 3, Get 1 Free (Camaro, Corvette, Mustang, Tesla, Lexus)

    That looks quite good actually! Anthracite is a boring color. The bronze would really pop! Especially on a boring Mustang :p

    Paint your calipers a different color. Bronze would look siiiiiick!

    "Almost Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"

    Wow. I have one of these laying around as well. I guess I should dig it up. I remember the ATI card of the same era was faster, though?

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    Absolutely this. As someone who works on cars probably more than computers dialectrics grease is a wonderful thing. It prevents arc'ing which is what causes melting at electrical connection points. It also makes sure connections don't corrode over time where weather might affect it. Plus it has...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I have the FE and bought the Cablemod 4 to 1 cable. Looks nice. Card hasn't exceeded 65C while gaming with anything I've thrown at it. Definitely CPU limited in some games but at 150+ FPS in nearly every game I play I just laugh.

    Gateway 14.1 and 15.6 1080p notebooks for $99 and $139

    My first Gateway was a P2 233 that I probably enjoyed more than any computer I ever owned. Played through most of the Monkey Islands with it and it was the first computer I put a graphics accelerator in. Monster 3D. OMG Quake 2 in Glide!!! Folks were buying Dell's but I always stood by the...

    5800X at Microcenter for $200 + $25 coupon for new customers

    Ah, I assumed based on your sig that you are running a 1700. 1700 -> 5800X is a huge jump, but probably not worth it if you already have a 3700x.

    5800X at Microcenter for $200 + $25 coupon for new customers

    The x3d is a gaming beast. I actually built a system around it. No regrets all!

    5800X at Microcenter for $200 + $25 coupon for new customers

    Absolutely. That system even with a x370 would rip. Benchmarks show there isn't much difference between x370 and x570. Mem speeds matter a little but you'd get a huge boost.

    5800X at Microcenter for $200 + $25 coupon for new customers

    Absolutely worth it if you don't want to upgrade entirely quite yet.
