    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    To me a power supply is... well... just a power supply. I thought there was some weird new hardwired regulation that wouldn't let you use it on GPUs, but if there are going to be adapters, and adapters are good enough, then that's fine. This 1200W unit should arrive today and I should be able to...

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Wait so are we saying these new power supplies won't be able to power new GPUs at all? Or will there be adapters made? I'm feeling a bit annoyed about my purchase now as I obviously was living in a cave with regards to this.

    HX850 (2018) vs RM850x (2021)

    I'm not sure what price you're looking at these for, but I suggest checking this thread out: https://hardforum.com/threads/evga-supernova-16oow-p-199.2021102/ 1200W P2 can be had for 159.99 with free shipping, and 1000W models are even less, and then you pretty much don't have to worry about...

    I'm not talking about the GPUs only, though: their peripherals, shirts, PSUs, motherboards... basically everything is getting huge price slashes.

    evga sale this weekend,big cuts on gpus

    Is EVGA just liquidating everything? Their price cuts are just massive across the board and I'm a bit worried.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    I ended up buying a 1200W P2, and then a keyboard and wireless mouse since they were heavily discounted as well. I'm a bit worried about the noise complaints on the P2, but hopefully it'll be fine.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    I'm looking at their power supply page and very many of these units are on sale. I'm looking for a 1200 or higher unit, which one should I get? I see P3's, P2's, P+'s, etc...

    Some cheap ($5) EVGA t shirts

    What is the material for these? I only buy cotton and other natural materials, can't stand polyester.

    Prime Day Deal - 2tb SK Hynix P41 gen4 nvme ($207.99)

    I'm going to install mine today or tomorrow, but I'm more or less prepared to say that any differences I experience are likely going to be just due to the fact that I reinstalled Windows, not the SSD performance. But hey the benchmarks say it's the fastest SSD on the market so it'll make me feel...

    Prime Day Deal - 2tb SK Hynix P41 gen4 nvme ($207.99)

    Thanks for this, I decided to pick up the 2TB yesterday. I doubt I'll even see a practical difference vs my 970 EVO Plus but I'm going to try it on a whim anyway. I've been needing to reinstall Windows after doing this swap to my 5950x and I'm just too lazy to try to back up everything anyway.

    B-Stock EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING $1099

    Wow, that's slightly lower than when I got mine a few months ago, open box from Microcenter, even. I suppose I should have just waited, but at least it's only a few dollars difference...

    Every man needs a four pack - flashlights 10 bucks shipped

    I just use rechargeable AAA batteries in those Duracell headlamp units. I guess in a way they're kind of tactical, since they're small enough to be handled portably, and you can wear them on your head. That means that if you get into a fight with a bear or another large mammal out in the...

    Refurb SB X3 DAC at Creative for 80 bucks free shipping

    So I think the amplifier on this is plenty capable. It drives my headphones with no issues. Sound is probably on the warm side, since, compared to my Mayfield O2 DAC/AMP there is much less sibilance. Mic slot worked with no issue. However I still can't get rid of my sound card, mainly because I...

    Some advice on a standing desk monitor for exercise

    Yeah well that's kind of how I expected this topic to go. Oh well lol. Guess I'll just pick one of those options.
