    Help with setup for HTPC -> Yamaha RX-V683BL 7.2 Receiver

    Does your TV have an eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel) HDMI port on it? If so connect your receiver to that HDMI port and connect the PC directly to your TV. It looks like your receiver supports eARC through a firmware update (2.70). The eARC port supports full 7.1 audio and Dolby Atmos. If...

    Are you going for reference Big Navi/RTX 3xxx or waiting for AIB offers?

    I'll probably go for the 3080 Ti Founders Edition card as soon as it drops. I currently have a 1080 Ti Founders Edition and it has been a great card.

    Hold out for 10900k, grab 10700, or just go with a discounted 9900K?

    I went with a 10700k, but had the same dilemma as you. I see you already made a choice and can't blame you for the decision. There really isn't much difference between the two CPUs so I don't think you'll regret it. I'm sure you'll skip LGA1200 altogether.

    Not sure why, but I can't PM you but i'm interested in your 1070.

    Madison Heights Microcenter has 10600K in stock (x6) $319.99 + tax SOLD OUT

    All I know is demand is pretty high for 10th gen unlocked chips. I'm sure they'll sell out quickly.

    I actually have a 10900k on the way!

    Yeah I missed this one by like 5 seconds. Must have only had one in stock.

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    There is an option in the VNC Client I'm using (RealVNC Viewer 5.2.3) to scale the display to the window size. This should do what you're wanting. No custom resolution necessary.

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    Completely agree here - I'm still on a 2600k (at 4.6Ghz, mind you) and it hasn't felt slow for the past 7 years I've had it.

    Unable to reach one specific URL, from other locations URL is working fine

    I, personally, wouldn't host a private cloud outside of a private VPN. If you need to share this private cloud with family members - setup a VPN server / endpoint and give them a login to it so they will essentially be on your network. For one you can control DNS, IP addressing, etc. Keep them...

    Zotac REFURB - 1060 3GB - $98, 1060 6GB - $119, AMP - $126 + Tax/Ship

    Yes, $180 is close to $160. I've seen a couple BF deals this week for $180-$190 after rebate. Granted taxes would be added to that depending on where you live, and you'd have to count on the rebate actually showing up, but when we're talking a $160 vs a $200 investment I think it's worth it to...

    Zotac REFURB - 1060 3GB - $98, 1060 6GB - $119, AMP - $126 + Tax/Ship

    Taxes and Shipping and Handling killed this deal for me. That brings the total to close to $160 which is too close to retail price for a new card when they're on sale.
