    Like I said in another thread, at this point my launch 2080ti FE is going to have to be lasting at least until 2022 at this rate. I gave up trying to get a 3080, and honestly, fuck 'em at this point. The 2080ti is playing most the stuff good...

    In life, more often than not, there are different answers, where neither is correct or incorrect. There are very few things that are inherently right or wrong, instead they are defined as such by societal systems that change as culture evolves...

    scajjr29 reacted to bigddybn's post in the thread The ultimate price gouge with Like Like.
    Are we discussing price gouging, scalping or "price hikes?" You don't seem to understand the difference between the 3. GPU retail prices aren't really being hiked other than the tariff exemptions expiring. This would be "price hiking" which...

    Get on the Microcenter fan Discord, lots of people (on the Cambridge MA section anyway) who will get stuff for you. Usually cost&tax&maybe a tip. sam

    I wouldn't put any stock into rumor tweets. The same guy swore "20GB 3080Ti in january, u gais. itz gonna be LIT". Rumor/fabrication/tweet propagated by lame tech sites seems to have become its own industry now. That said, I can't wait for...

    Had a pre-order for a 5900x on BLT for a while, originally stock ETA said jan 29. On the 29th stock ETA was changed to "approx 3 weeks", today ETA says "none". Cancelled the pre-order. My 9900k/2080ti will hold me fine, will see what the hardware...

    scajjr29 reacted to x509's post in the thread My declaration of independence with Like Like.
    As of just now, I have totally had it with this entire game card situation. I was a real schmuck for not buying an AMD 5600XT or 5700 back last May (at MSRP) when I was buying all the other components of my new build. No, I had to have a new...

    I've just decided to wait 6 months and see where we are. My Win 10 (i9-9900k)and Arch Linux ( R5 3600) systems have 2080ti Hybrid and 2080 Super Hybrid respectfully, our bedroom pc (i7-8700k) has a 2060 Super 8Gb. Have a MSI X570 board (Mag...

    scajjr29 replied to the thread Zen 3 Launch Availability.
    When BLT is out of stock a/o no eta on a product, you can't order/pre-order. With the latest AMD CPUs and both AMD & Nvidia GPUs, if they are OOS and no eta on a shipment, they would have a notice on the main page saying you can't order them and...

    Just got an email from them saying they expect to receive a shipment of AMD CPUs on 1/29. Not etched in stone but again I had figured I wouldn't get one until spring anyway. sam

    Was able to place an order on BLT for a 5900X just now. Not sure if they are in stock or not but if I have to wait that's fine, not in a hurry anymore. They tell you to check back in a day for order status. sam

    scajjr29 reacted to tajoh111's post in the thread What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'? with Like Like.
    Hardwareunboxed did an investigation and they believe it AMD was responsible for HIGH AIB pricing. They found that selling at AMD suggested MSRP was basically near cost for them and it was the lowest margin ever on a videocard for them. As a...
