    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    While not a in stock thread. I would recommend signing up for the EVGA queue. This past Monday I got an email that I could buy a 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming Hybrid and i jumped on it. I did sign up for it back on Dec 6, 2020. Since I live on SOCAL I received it on Tuesday.

    Elite: Dangerous

    I bought this game several years ago and purchased the X4 Foundations while on sale back around Christmas. Sadly I played only several minutes of Elite Dangerous (ED). Getting ready to take the plunge into ED or X4.

    I took a hiatus from the game and yesterday I keep crashing out of the game after playing for several minutes. Hopefully they fix this issue since it has been reported online by numerous players.

    Cyberpunk 2077 for $26.69

    Purchased Cyberpunk 2077 yesterday from CD Keys for $31.69 which activates on GOG Galaxy with no issues. I already had a GOG account so it seemed like a no brainer. Have about 4 hours of game time, went with the Nomad character. Having fun so far.

    LG 48CX

    I recently purchased (12/20/20) the Vogels 546 Thin mount full motion for my LG CX 48. The screen should be around 3.5 inches from the wall once mounted. Bought it off of Amazon for $349.52. It connects to 1 stud on the wall. However my wall studs are off centered and I need to buy a 3/4 plywood...

    AW3821DW (Nov 2020) with GSync Ultimate

    I will be interested to see what you think of the new monitor, like you I have a AW3418DW. Last week I purchased a LG CX 48 and I am happy with it. Only down fall is my GPU (EVGA RTX 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra) with only HDMI 2.0. I picked up the LG up on a military base exchange (retail store) for...

    Still using a 5.1 Boston Acoustic surround sound and my 2010 sound card (sound blaster x-fi titanium fatal1ty ) needed to be replaced. Went with the AE-5 Plus and could not be happier. For music listening I use my Arcam AVR-850 with my Oppoi-205.

    Frys going out of Business

    I am surprised they keep their stores open. The cost for the utilities alone would support closing the stores. I lost track how many times a customer representative would tell shipment of goods were inbound to replenish the shelves dating back to the beginning of 2019. I wanted a Samsung SSD...

    Fry's Electronics: 20% Off In-Store on Saturdays

    Went into Fry's in San Marcos California. Two motherboards on the shelves. Back in May of this year I was looking for a 2TB Samsung that was not in stock and the salesperson said they were waiting on a delivery. Presently no inventory. I be surprised if they make it to the end of the year.

    (Solved)MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio fan curve and setting set speed fan issue

    Update: MSI technical support recommended that I send (RMA) the GPU to them or return to seller (Microcenter). I elected to return it and I bought a EVGA 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra. The EVGA allows me to set a fan curve and set the fan at any given percentage speed. So I now have regained control of the...
