    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    350-400 is the sweet spot for a GPU imho. Most cards that come out in the price range can easily do 1080p max settings or 1440p mid range settings. If you want higher end gaming $650-700 is the price point you are looking at.

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    To be honest I feel they could have came out cheaper if they could. Cost possibly has gone up due to the pandemic so they priced it as competitive as they possibly could under the circumstances.

    Pixio PX277H w/HDR is not bad! Quick Review after first day.

    I just bought this display and had a few questions. Anyone know what all the modes actually do? The manual has no information of what they do or change. Also mine is using HDMI with freesync at 144hz 8 bit color 4:4:4 full rgb

    Intel's i9-9900K Is Only 12% Faster than AMD's 2700X at Gaming, but 66% Pricier

    Maybe I misspoke - Few articles I've read mentioned HPE moving to amd. But after finding another few they are more so recommending them over intel mainly due to supply of intel chips.

    Intel's i9-9900K Is Only 12% Faster than AMD's 2700X at Gaming, but 66% Pricier

    I'm just really hoping Intel realizes they are soon to be no longer the top dog and adjust pricing accordingly. Even HP Enterprise is dropping the Xeon in favor of Epyc chips.

    Thinking on picking up a mydigitalssd 480gb varient. Slightly cheaper than a samsung 960 and 970 evo for the same storage size. Reviewers can only give me benchmarks as I want real use cases.

    Family Sues Apple Over Wreck Caused by FaceTime

    The driver just happened to be using FaceTime. What if it was YouTube, Netflix, or some other app that is "distracting" from the road? This family is grasping at straws on winning this lawsuit. It's getting annoying that people keep blaming companies who make the technologies and not the...

    I have a PowerColor 6950 reference card that I've had flashed to a 6970 for over a year or so more and it has worked flawlessly. Recently I picked up a new i5 3570k and msi 77a gd55 mobo. Toss it in and for some reason when its on the flashed bios it doesn't seem to want to work. Flip the switch...

    I gotta applaud Apple...

    @ryken I've only had the SSD in since end of November and even before that I enjoyed my MBP more than my i7 desktop. My desktop is only used for Gaming and XBMC otherwise I'm using my MBP. I feel Windows is bloated, a typical Win 7 install is what 15GB on average where OS X is around 8GB...
