    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I think possibly what got botted was when the queues were first opened for new cards. The evga site was barely working for most of us when those queues first opened. So I think it’s likely that there were bots being used to stack the queue, possibly for the same individuals.

    I don’t know that I like the self healing vehicles either.

    Battlefield 2042

    Didn't work for me. I had to do the Epic Store Account/Origin Account link trick to work.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    The whole system was kind of flawed. Not to say I didn’t take advantage of it. I was able to get a 3060 (launch queue) and step up to a 3090. But for some reason if you were in the 3090 queue before the 3060 launch it may have taken longer to get a card. And you get charged shipping basically...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I haven’t entered the Newegg shuffle in ages and was selected for an MSI 3060 unbundled. Kind of overpriced like everything MSI but decided to buy it anyway.

    Did you all see in the steam survey how there’s more 3090 market share (the lowest of all nvidia cards this generation) than the ENTIRE AMD lineup this generation? Crazy stuff. Obviously AMD is more concerned about other chips right now.

    Wow a $2000 3080 ti on the shuffle today, are they nuts?

    Best value current gen GPU at MSRP?

    I mean more in terms of supported games. I'm sure they will get there but nvidia has a leg up since DLSS has been out longer.

    Best value current gen GPU at MSRP?

    I concur that the RX 6800 XT is a very impressive and underrated card. It sits between the 3080 and 3090 in some benchmarks. The only downside is raytracing performance isn't great and I hear AMD's equivalent to DLSS, FSR, has a way to go.

    What if the crypto craze never ends?

    Unless you’re gaming 24/7 for months at a time, mining consumes more power.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    The 10700k is being cooled by the arctic cooling liquid freezer II 240 and the 5600x is cooled by the msi mag 240r. The 10700k for the most part peaks in the mid 80s in stress tests and the 5600x peaks in the low 70s. Kind of wished I went with a 360 radiator for the 10700k.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Should be alright for a 10600k. I think I lost the lottery on my 10700k as it runs quite toasty at its necessary voltage for the overclock which is a fairly modest one at best, 4.9 ghz all core. Could get to 5 ghz but didn’t like the stress test temps.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    What cpu is in that cyberpower pc? If it’s an AMD processor with a 65w tdp it may be more than adequate for that. I have a 240 aio on my 5600x and it’s quite overkill. It runs much much cooler than my 10700k.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Intel has it. It’s called PTT. It’s supported by a 8th gen core processors.

    EVGA 3070 In Stock @ EVGA.com 689

    Especially lame because I got a notification from the queue specifically saying -KR was removed from production and I would be moved to -KL (light hash rate version). So maybe it did end production but why not release however many made to people in the queue?
