    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Well I thought I was "settling" for a Radeon 6800 as that is the only card I could find on stock on Newegg and snag before thousands of card hunters took it away from me. I was WRONG. This video card is BLAZING fast! It's a 100% FPS improvement for me in Shadow of the Tombraider over my...

    So, My RX580 basically died....would i be stupid to get....

    The used 2080 Super seems like a pretty decent value if you can't get your hands on an MSRP 3060 Ti. The overall performance should be on par, with a bit of an edge in rasterization to the 2080S and probably an edge to ray tracing to the 3060Ti.

    I Bought a 6900 XT Today!

    Pretty cool that they give you a free mouse mat with the 1k graphics card... BUT will it run Crysis at 4k? ;) PS Every gamer will die a little inside if you tell us you bought a 6900XT for your son to run games at 1080p, :P

    Yup a 5600x. Will probably give a better boost than a block. You can upgrade over time though. I’m pairing the 6800 with a 5900x so once I got that going I should be getting to my 120hz 1440p monitor refresh cap.

    I got the Gigabyte 6800 from Newegg drop today. I'm settling but considering how hard it is to get a new graphics card I'll be satisfied as long as it gets into my hands and works!

    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. 😂
