    Z390 VRM heatsinks $150-$200

    I usually get most of my info from youtube and google search but there isn't a lot of info for many of the Z390 mobo models. Much less about the vrm heatsink info (which I know can help keep temps down when trying to OC). in my case. I know the MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon and ASRock Z390 Taichi...

    Used Ebay 1080 TI's - buyer bewares

    ok so now the real question is, is a 680$ new GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GV-N108TGAMING OC-11GD better than getting an EVGA or MSI used for $500ish? I've seen that one have some flash sales to 680$, and seen some youtube reviews saying if you see a 1080TI dip below 700$ to grab it...

    Magical RTX Drivers

    I've seen videos on youtube and read lots of articles. those 1 in 5 articles/videos/reviews with benchmarks that recommend viewers/readers buy the RTX 2080 and admit its a tiny increase in performance from the 1080 TI seem to always say something along the lines of "we should expect to see...

    Getting the best bang for buck 1080ti

    yup i agree with you. its kind of just a personal policy. you can buy new, use it for a year or two, and sell it for 400$. i mean you could buy used at 450$ use it for 2 years and do the same thing. but again, you don't know how hardcore its been mined. since im building an expensive rig, i...
