    How long should a good quality PSU last

    I've got my Corsair HX750 for 7 or 8 years already (so slightly out of warranty) Through I'll be replacing it soon as I found new HX850 (2017 Platinium rated model) for <110 euro on sale.

    RTX on windows 8.1

    Guys I'm not asking about win 10 ;) I've used every windows since 3.11 and I don't want W10 in my pc as long as any viable alternative exists. Nah I was too lazy to update it - it's 6700k with 16 GB of ram now :) Well anyway I got that 1080ti

    RTX on windows 8.1

    I noticed that Nvidia only have windows 7 or windows 10 drivers for RTX series. 8.1 has same drivers but with * saying it's not covering 20xx series. Is there any way to get win 7 drivers working on 8.1 (iirc it was said it's possible when AMD dropped 8.1 suport totally) Now I've got two...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    Do it fast - stock of Pascals is running out and prices are increasing. In my local market we barely got any deal on 1080/1080 ti so 2070 is similar price to 1080 here which makes it acceptable value.

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    I don't know about situation in America but in EU supply of 1080ti is almost done and they are back to slightly above MSRP prices so if 2070 cheaper SKUs will be available they will be very attractive.

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    Good job with review. If Nvidia is pissed it serves them well because they had opportunity to provide fair review terms like they used to for years instead they tried to play AMD and influence reviews. Hmm I wonder if this card would be good upgrade over 980ti (reference) I have now. 1080...

    What price would make you go current vs new?

    I hope we will get 1170 with 1180ti performance for around 500$. I'm still on 980ti so anything less is not worth upgrading and I'd prefer to have something around 150-180W tdp this time.

    Windows 10 Finally Surpasses Windows 7 Market Share

    Telemetry is just a nice bonus - real end game is full control of all software sold on pcs through UWP and for that they need windows 10 running on every pc first. Next step is going to start installing UWP only version of windows 10 which people will have to upgrade to run legacy apps...

    Dell S2716DG, 27" 2560x1440 144hz 1ms "G-Sync Gen II", DP+HDMI

    Nice price :) I'm waiting for those 35" 1440p ultra wide HDR displays with 144Hz+ but for now Dell is good for my dedicated gaming rig.

    New Silverstone FT02

    Phantex Evolve ATX with tempered glass side window. I got rid of my Raven 2 as hdd mounting was really outdated on those cases and overall size got problematic. Would be cool if Silverstone made a refresh to address cable management and hdd/ssd mounting.

    Too much stress, Raja takes sabbatical, Lisa Su takes over RTG

    Yeah sure - except we live in an era of PR speak they might be calling it Sabbatical to not admit product is failure. I won't be surprised if they claim various family matters force him to resign after that.
