    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I agree. Phanteks Evolv Enthoo ITX here. Very restricted when it comes to slot height, can only do 2 slots. I thought I was going for the RX 6800 because the price/performance looked good, the reality is the decision was already made for me. :whistle:

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Yes, the CU counts are different as they were with the Vega cards (56 & 64 CUs) and RX 5700 series cards (40 & 36 CUs) and Polaris, but we know from past experience that CU count alone didn't stop us. That doesn't mean I 100% expect a repeat with big Navi, but my fellow [H]'ers are certainly...

    In for a RX 6800, especially if it can be flashed with the 6800 XT BIOS like we've been doing for ages now.

    GeForce RTX 3070 Reviews

    Keeping nicely with the trend of matching the previous gen's x80 Ti performance. Pleased with its performance, but I long for the days of $329 MSRP for the x70 SKU. :(

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    FTFY. Taco breaking character makes SpartanVI unhappy.

    5700XT -Either amazing deal or a scam

    Even if it ends up being a RX 5500 XT, that's still a great deal.

    WD Blue 3D NAND 2TB Internal SSD $179.99

    This was the price for the same drive on Prime Day, so I jumped on it. Roughly $0.08 per GB is pretty good. There may be better deals around Black Friday, so I guess it depends on how badly do you need more storage "right now."

    [DEAD] FREE digital copy of Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One

    Worked for me. I had a physical copy of this, but before I could even finish the game, my toddlers found it and snapped the disc in two. :ROFLMAO:

    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    No chance WFH will be permanent for me. My bank was cracking down on telecommuters immediately before the outbreak and were caught with their pants down as a result of the downscaling efforts. They went as far as to eliminate full-time telecommuter positions in October 2019 and reopened those...

    9700K $199 Micro Center (plus $20 off MB)

    Boy, do I love competition. This is the best bang for buck gaming CPU at $199, for sure.

    Razer is launching a prepaid credit card

    "the world's first card that lights up on payment" Oh. My. God. They've almost figured out how to add RGB to credit/debit cards. :ROFLMAO:

    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    First one Ive ever had was a S3 Virge. First one I ever bought with my own money (allowance) was a GeForce 2 MX400 (puke). First one I ever bought with my own money (from my job) was a Radeon 9800 Pro. First game was probably Wolfenstein 3D.

    Amazon Prime Day is Oct 13-14

    Couldn't resist the 2TB WD Blue SSD for $175. Probably not going to get much better than that during Black Friday for a 2TB TLC SSD with DRAM.
