    New PC build, finally got lucky in a product shuffle

    You should go with the 11700k instead becuse it is basically the same CPU as the 11900k for cheaper. It won't help with VM performance because it doesn't have any extra cores like with previous generations. They are both 8 core parts. The difference in clock speed is also negligable and can...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    Really? that's great news. I will definitely look into link aggregation. I am a noob with this stuff. What else needs to be compatible? Any recommendations?

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I looked at the ASUS website and they are actually saying that the SPF+ port cannot do 2.5Gb it will only do 10Gb. But they do say that the 10GbaseT port is actually flexible and will do 1Gb/2.5Gb/5GB/10Gb. But of course I would need both ports. So the search for a router with 2x 2.5Gb ports...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I found something that looks like it might work for me. Does anyone have any experience with the ASUS RT-AX89X? I see that it has 2x 10gb ports, although one of them is SFP+. Is there an adapter to use this to connect to a switch with standard RJ-45? Will there be issues with the rest of my gear...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    Looks like that's a managed switch. I would need a router with 2x 2.5 or higher ports. If I can get a router with 2x 10gb ports for under $500 I would do it.

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I recently purchased a new cable modem with a 2.5gb port and connecting it directly my system with a 2.5Gbps NIC allows me to get speeds up to 1300MBps with Comcast gigabit internet. This is great except for the fact that my router (ASUS RT-AX88U) has 1 gig ports obviously. I ordered a 2.5Gb...

    For sure. Unfortunately like others have said it's only 3% for GPUs now but that's still good savings. At least it will get you free shipping and maybe more. And some other items are 5%-10%. No downside really. It works out well for everyone. If anyone needs a code here's mine: HIF96TVOT3VM9OV...

    Does [H] need to be (yet another) avenue for scalpers to profit?

    Instead of creating a new account you could have just emailed and asked them to change your username. I've done it a few times myself.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    I didn't mean changing the refresh rate I meant would the FPS output be effected more by the CPU at a higher refresh rate than below 60 but I guess not. Thanks

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    Thanks for the reassurance. Probably not worth the money for little to no impact.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    I figured. Just didn't know if there were maybe a few frames to be had in trying for above 60hz and closer to 120hz. I guess the CPU still wouldn't matter even at higher refresh rates right?
