    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    Let's talk about performance, not availability. I've been thinking about this card as being a titan replacement. However, the titans have always been nvidia produced, not aib. It looks like all the regular aibs are on board for the 3090. Do we think it is really a titan then? No other generation...

    POLL/Discussion: How do you tweak your Ryzen CPU?

    Trying to figure out what people are doing for Ryzen settings to maximize performance. I was running 4.3GHz all core on a 3800x but the idle power usage was kind of high so I decided to try going stock with undervolt. I was surprised to see how much performance started climbing the more I...

    do people still tweak and overclock memory?

    I just got some new RAM and it occurred to me that I bought it based on its rated performance. I remember back in the day (they way back days, ddr1 days) we would spend countless time reducing timings, memtesting, reducing, memtesting, until we found our best stable settings. Is this still the...

    How do you build a fast PC-based NAS?

    Basically I want to replace my WD 2 bay NAS with something faster. I've been happy with my 2x3TB mycloud mirror (like EX2) NAS, but I want to move to something that can't be perceived as not a local disk. I definitely want redundancy (RAID 0 = no), but I want it to be faster. Doesn't have to be...

    RTX 2060 KO Owner's Thread (and other 2060 cards with TU104)

    Making this thread to discuss 2060 KO cards using the TU104 die. For those who do not know, 2060 cards traditionally come with the TU106 die. However, EVGA's 2060 KO has been shown to use the TU104 die (shared with the 2080) with limited shaders/cores. Gaming performance is equivilant to the...

    Could folding/DC help find a cure for the Coronavirus?

    Like the title says, looking to replace a quadro fx570 with a passive card. Needs to drive a 1440p monitor. Hdmi preferred. What's out there that fits the bill? Little money as possible, was thinking a 740gtx or low 900 series card, but is there anything cheaper?

    How to fix windows 10 not booting

    PC for streaming only?

    I am looking into live streaming and have a PC capable of gaming just fine. I was wondering if it would make sense to have a second PC (which I can get cheap) just to handle video input and streaming from the gaming PC. Would a machine with a 6 core x58 xeon and 12GB of ram be good enough for...

    good, inexpensive color accurate display recommendations?

    I am looking to invest in a new monitor, primarily for video production/editing work, so color accuracy is important to me, and secondarily used for games. I would prefer it to be 4K/UHD, since the footage I work with is 4K. High refresh rate is of no concern to me, nor is freesync or gsync. It...

    Are there cheap but powerful windows tablets?

    Does such a thing exist? I see tablets with low power dual core chips costing a bunch of money, and then I see the ones with the powerful chips costing a TON of money, $3k+. How is it that to get a tablet that is as powerful as a $900 laptop, I need to spend 4x as much?
