    Asus Dual RX 5600XT $310 - $30MIR In Stock

    The 1% frame rate of the 5600xt has always impressed me, it is considerably higher than 1080 ti in most benchmarks Review sites that don't test against 1080p resolution are doing their readers a huge disservice. Not only is the above 1080p segment small (steam hardware pic below) there is this...

    Nova Launcher Prime - 99 cents

    As someone who has used both and used windows phones quite a bit (same UI) my 2 cents go to *drum roll* Nova Launcher mainly due to Gesture Launch; can't live without it.

    [DEAD]Steam 2020 Winter sale is here! runs from December 22 to January 5th 2021 10 AM PST

    Can't recommend Deep Rock Galactic enough! Been playing two months after it went early access in Feb 18'. Awesome developers that keep to their roadmap and probably the best slower 4 player co-op game ever made; fast 4 player co-op is a tie between Vermintide 1&2

    Acer 27" 1440P 144hz VA Freesync Monitor - $269.99 Newegg

    Have used all three types of panels and for me VA wins out by mile due to the contrast vs. IPS / TN; blacks truly are black not some sort of grey. 90% of the games that I am playing today with my 1070 I would still want a 1080p panel because of the higher frame rate and the ability to eeek out...

    LG 27GL650F-B vs Acer Curved ED273 Abidpx

    I love my Acer ED273! Deepest / inky blacks of any monitor I have owned (many IPS ones) besides my FW900 and CRT days. Still play competitive FPS games with it, not using overdrive, flagged to use G-sync compatible mode. It has had an intermittent vertical screen aligment (half the screen is...

    Why is display/monitor market such a shite?

    Uh some of us still like 120+ 99% frame rate times with competitive shooters @ 1080p without breaking the bank on CPU / GPU; doing that at 1440 is not that easy or cheap.

    *REFURBISHED* ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti - $439.99 + tax & S&H

    It still is about 10-15% less raster performance but might be less when overclocked by initial previews. Still a 3 year warranty, DLSS and path tracing > $50-$100 savings YMMV~

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Just played it about 9 months ago again but this time with 3D vision + helix mod patch; some games are never the same once you play them in 3D vision.

    Intel Notifies Partners of Upcoming Price Cuts

    Same here with 3D Vision (makes me stay with nvidia) which I love and adore for single play titles. The other radeon and open source 3D stuff are not up to snuff. There has been some thought about having a dual rig setup where there is one dedicated to having nvidia + 3D vision.

    *REFURBISHED* ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti - $439.99 + tax & S&H

    Yes my comment is for EVGA which pretty much has been known as having the best warranty and service in the graphics card business forever. Other companies have warranties that transfer or stay with the card. Pick your poison~ I think that DLSS is implemented by having the game being run...

    *REFURBISHED* ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti - $439.99 + tax & S&H

    I buy and sell lots of used stuff. Could I interest anyone in some "surprise mechanics"? So turning a profit (or just buying smart and thrifty for myself) on what I do above, these are the steps one must think of. Ho-hum~

    *REFURBISHED* ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti - $439.99 + tax & S&H

    So a used EVGA 2080 is around $600.00+ (on eBAY) with probably 2 ish years left on the warranty (which is via the product not the original purchaser). Or $450.00-$500.00 for this with a 90 day warranty, plus these are much older cards than 2080s. 16-25% savings for an non RTX option with no...

    I was in until I read 90 day warranty
