    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    My first 3D card was the TNT (Creative Graphics Blaster CT6710). Don't recall what the first game to use it was - probably something running on the original Quake engine.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 8K gameplay video

    I'm not sure I'd call 8k with nightmare settings at mostly 60fps (with a few dips) 'complete shit,' but I agree that consumers should be wary without pre-launch reviews.

    I would’ve preferred the Intellimouse Explorer 1.0.

    Intel 8086k Winner E-Mails going out!

    I also received a win notification from Votigo this morning.... thought for sure it was a phishing scam at first. Big thanks to [H] for alerting me to the contest in the first place!

    Old School FPS Fans Will Enjoy This Reveal Trailer For TOXIKK

    I didn't realize how much I truly dislike all of these modern 'innovations' until watching this trailer. Makes me long for Unreal Tournament.... or hell, I'd even take the original team fortress (Quake 1 mod) over today's F2P incarnation. Could be an interesting game if it ends up having a...

    Lian Li PC-V1000L

    Just got mine two days ago and moved my rig in. Build quality is solid, but I think it's a bit overpriced for what you're getting. The plastic (WTF plastic??) pieces that hold the front fan fixture into place were broken on arrival - waiting to hear back from Lian Li about replacements...

    Lian Li PC-V1000L

    It's a shame Lian-Li doesn't stay more up-to-date with their feature sets. I've been using a PC-65 for about 10 years - and while it's a great quality case - it really lacks so many of the modern conveniences that even the cheapest cases offer now. Really looking forward to retail...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Thanks for the quick and dirty! I figure the 4Ghz should help me put off the upgrade itch until next years tic.

    ASUS X99 Deluxe LGA 2011-v3 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I decided to pick up a cheap Xeon for my aging Rampage III - hoping that will satiate my upgrade-lust until the next Tic. I too would like to see DDR4 speeds and prices to improve.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Hey guys - I just picked up a x5650 on eBay to replace my 930. I have very little experiencing OC'ing and would be very appreciative of some hand-holding as I put this Xeon on my Rampage III and get it running in the 4ghz territory. How do I get this ball rolling?

    Intel Haswell-E Core i7-5960X CPU & X99 Chipset @ [H]

    I've seen a couple recommendations for people in similar situations to just sink <$100 into a Xeon 5650 and OC to the limit... but I feel like the feature set on the x58 platform is getting really stale... for example, I'm not getting maximum performance out of my SSD because of the x58 chipset...

    Intel Haswell-E Core i7-5960X CPU & X99 Chipset @ [H]

    So from a gamer's perspective, does the 5820k make the most sense on the x99 platform?
