    What is Official 3080 Sales Time For Thursday?

    I love how you can search for "RTX 3080" directly on amazon and get nothing but rtx 2080 results, but you can go to google and search "RTX 3080 on Amazon" and the first result is a landing page for all the cards. WTF

    YMMV: Best Buy in store: $140 for Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero x470 motherboard

    I went into Best buy today to do an exchange from a x570 TUF for this board with the intention to have them price match Amazon for $212. The board range up at $140 plus tax, and the employee said it was a clearance price that was just created. Obviously YMMV based on in-store inventory. This is...

    In the mood for a racing game: Forza 7 or Forza Horizon 3?

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! I tried both and definitely prefer FH3 style of gameplay.

    In the mood for a racing game: Forza 7 or Forza Horizon 3?

    It's been ages since I played a racing game (Forza 2 I believe). I have a beefy pc hooked up to an 4k LG oled TV, and am looking to get either Forza 7 or Forza Horizon 3, both are on sale now on the MS store. I've read that HDR is missing from Horizon 3, which is very disappointing to hear. Is...

    So who's getting Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch?

    I just picked up a Switch 2 weeks ago and I've been having a blast playing on the big screen playing games with my wife. She's not a gamer but we love Mario Kart, and honestly I have not played a Mario game since the N64 release. I've watched a few videos and I'm excited for the new direction...

    Sequel Middle Earth: Shadow of War Confirmed

    Are you able to take control of captains from the begining of the game, or is that an ability you unlock? I'm trying my best to take control over them (hold B on the xbox controller) but always get rejected. To add, the PC graphics look good, but not as great as I hoped for. Perhaps it may be...

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    Pure luck on my part there! I do love the x99 platform and do think it will be suitable for a while, especially since it does support DDR4, NVME and relatively fast USB3 chipsets. I just hope motherboard stock doesn't dry up, so I'm actually planning to look at deals on x99 boards to get a spare.

    Sequel Middle Earth: Shadow of War Confirmed

    Surprised to see a game use that much system RAM. Is 16gb now the new 8?

    Thanks Microcenter... $500 8700k on Launch day.

    Just get a 6850k from them instead and get $100 off the x99 mobo. For the entry price gauge on the 8700k the x99 can be had for about the same, maybe less. 6 cores, can OC a bit, more lanes, but...older platform obviously

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    I was lucky to snag a x99 based system on Craigslist for cheap. 5930k, asrock x6, 32gb ddr4 2400 ram, and a 1080 for $650. Love the setup as I game at 1440p/ 144hz gsync.I kept everything at stock speed and I have no reason to upgrade for a while as I'm not going to be CPU or GPU limited until...

    Why are all computer cases ugly nowadays?

    I'm getting sick of this everything RGB fad that's happening. I can't find a good case, GPU, or motherboard without it having RGB overload. I don't want my PC to look like a Vegas hotel. I like some Jonsbo cases and found that they finally have a U.S. site, but of course the selection is...

    Dell Optiplex 790 MT - Ebay

    What form factor is the optiplex 990 MT? I'm wondering if parts can be swapped into a modern mATX case, also wondering if the board has standard socket mounting in case you want to put a better HSF in there
