    Is any sense to wait for 10900K on stock if i can buy 10700K?

    don't wait for 10900k. Just get the 10850k. It's pretty much identical to 10900k in game benchmarks and sells for onlyu $450 on major etailers like Amazon and newegg.

    10900k/10850k vs 5900x: Future proof and 4K gaming

    The 5900X is strictly better, for all tasks, even games. But if you can't find it in stock a 10850k is a good deal at the $450 pricepoint that Amazon is selling at right now.

    upgrading my i7 7700k?

    9900K is on sale for $320 now. For a little extra, you get the hyper threading enabled and an i9 series cpu.

    Upgrading from 2500k to 10700k for single core performance. Is it worth it?

    TBH if you insist on Intel I don't see why you don't buy a 9900K instead. The performance is nearly identical to the 10700k and you can get it on sale for just $320. Of course for single threaded performance the 5600X will blow away both at $299 price point as well. As far as Intel favored...

    RX 6800 XT Red Devil just beat RTX 3090 😱

    I mean it’s really impressive that you can overclock the hell out of this 6800xt card and beat a stock 3090. Realistically the scalperbots will gobble this up and you’ll see it on eBay going for $1500. 😂

    AMD 5900X Pair w/ Wraith Prism

    Yes it will work. But why not treat yourself to better cooling since you have pretty much the best gaming cpu in the world right now? RGB's are rumored to make your gaming faster. LOL.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Nope no prior emails. I actually reached out to them and they said they didn't have an ETA. I didn't get another email until Friday when they said my CPU was shipping with a tracking number.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    My 5900X from B&H will be arriving Monday! I guess it just depends on how early you got into the queue. In other news I've seen a LOT of stock alerts for the 5800x while I was waiting for that confirmation from B&H so there should be plenty of those available. Ryzen 9's might be a little...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Newegg dropped the EVGA FTW 3090 today. I flirted with it in the cart but said naaah my budget cannot go that far! Knowing my luck the order would not have completed anyways. LOL. Also Best Buy dropped a bunch of 3080s today. With AMD's scarcity of 6000 series cards people are just buying...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Umm you're going to end up past the usual 30 day return date on the 3090. I think 6900XT doesn't launch till Dec 8th IF you are lucky enough to snag one on launch day. Why not just enjoy the 3090 since it's already in hand?
