    How did you purchase your Nvidia 3xxx series card? Owners vote only please.

    3080 - Newegg as part of a bundle w/an Asus 550B motherboard (which ended up in the Wifes system). This was back around November 20th though....

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Hey, thanks for the heads up, saved me a headache! Looks like I'll be swapping the wifes x470 MB for the b500 and shuffling that to the media center instead.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Managed to grab an Asus tuf 3080 last Thursday. I had to grab it in a bundle with a b550 motherboard (thaaaaanks newegg). I'm too damn lazy to return the MB so I'll probably end up upgrading my media center with it and a spare 1700x I've got laying around.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    That dude. UGH. After you aggro him, run back down the steps and jump off the cliff into the water below. Wait about 30 seconds then jump your way back up....and stealth kill the fucker. Don't feel bad about the cheese, you run into him again later and he has two health bars. By then you'll...

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Overclocked Up to 4.3 GHz (1.4V) across All Cores

    Wonder if these chips will clock any better (probably not)/have better latency numbers on a x470 board.

    Corsair Obsidian 500D released?

    A few reviews are hitting (guru3d, legit reviews). I'm really liking the look of this case, but I'm not a fan of the gap between the chassis and the glass panels

    Man, this really is a sad state of affairs...I picked up my 1070 for like $335 last August. :/

    Dead Cells

    Game is OK, I think I've dropped maybe 15 hours of playtime on it. I'm going to let it cook for awhile...maybe see what state the game is in 6 months or so. If your expecting a 'metroidvania'...this aint it. Think a more classic castlevania with randomized levels and more modern-ish combat...

    Prey (2017)

    I noticed in my last playthrough that turrets and operators (even destroyed ones) give a decent amount of mineral materials. Spare parts do as well, so once are all over the place late game you can get quite a stash

    [ebook] The Way of Kings - Free

    Give the latter books a go - they are phenomenal. I wasn't expecting much either and was happy to be proven wrong.

    Best shooter game you have ever played?

    Wow, same here. I probably dropped 200 hours+ into that game on Dreamcast before I saw it running on a proper PC.....that was life changing.

    AMD Ryzen 1700X CPU Review @ [H]

    Crap. I swear I'm going to be on my 2600K until it dies of old age.

    AMD Ryzen CPU models leaked

    My guess is the non-X chips are indeed unlocked, but their power draw is capped. Something akin to this latest generation of GPU's.
