    For the 2500K/2600K users out there, what price for a 7700K would make you upgrade?

    I think insane DDR4 prices are holding up the entire upgrade lifecycle. Lower prices by 50% and I think a lot of people will upgrade .. Then prices on old sandy/ivy/x99 systems will drop like a rock on ebay making everyone happy

    Well So far.. 4 out of 5 machines were upgraded successfully.. the 5th machine hung downloading the upgrade and now won't boot Also noticed the LAV Video filters don't work in full screen mode.. so if anyone is using them with Media Player Classic.. you'll probably have to wait for a fix. =(...

    What was your first HOLY COW! moment with an actual video card?

    As i get older i'm getting motion sickness in a lot of the first person games these days.. =( can only play for 30 mins at a time and when it hits I feel very ill for the remainder of the day.. So I've been afraid that VR would make me hurl immediately

    What was your first HOLY COW! moment with an actual video card?

    1. Panasonic was the first to offer an HDTV for sale in the US in 1998(?) it was a 57" rear projection.. and I bought one for almost $7K. Hooked it up an HTPC using a bunch of crazy expensive hard to find adapters connected to some flavor of Geforce4 and Athlon thunderbird 750Mhz SLOT-A system...

    Out of the loop intel wise

    not true.. A first gen core i7 using a 1156 motherboard could support up to 16GB of RAM officially.. a first gen core i7 with 1366 motherboard supported up to 24GB and some up to 32GB

    Broadcasters Worry About 'Zero TV' Homes

    I quit cable TV 2 years ago.. sick of the nickel and diming that was going on...It's probably the #1 reason why people quit cable TV but you know they will find a way to blame it on pirating :mad:
