    YMMV: Best Buy in store: $140 for Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero x470 motherboard

    I went into Best buy today to do an exchange from a x570 TUF for this board with the intention to have them price match Amazon for $212. The board range up at $140 plus tax, and the employee said it was a clearance price that was just created. Obviously YMMV based on in-store inventory. This is...

    In the mood for a racing game: Forza 7 or Forza Horizon 3?

    It's been ages since I played a racing game (Forza 2 I believe). I have a beefy pc hooked up to an 4k LG oled TV, and am looking to get either Forza 7 or Forza Horizon 3, both are on sale now on the MS store. I've read that HDR is missing from Horizon 3, which is very disappointing to hear. Is...

    So who's getting Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch?

    I just picked up a Switch 2 weeks ago and I've been having a blast playing on the big screen playing games with my wife. She's not a gamer but we love Mario Kart, and honestly I have not played a Mario game since the N64 release. I've watched a few videos and I'm excited for the new direction...

    Which is the better card for 1440p gaming?

    I currently have the Asus 280x DCII card and it runs fine, but one of my friends is selling a EVA 680 4gb classified card for a great price. It also turns out that I'm building a gaming pc for another friend, so I may sell him the 280x in his build if the 680 is a worthwhile upgrade. Thoughts?

    My dilemma - keep the Xeon l5639 or go with a 4820k?

    I currently have a x58 setup with an EVGA board and a Xeon l5639 6C/12T cpu overclocked to just under 3.6ghz.
