    Thinking about selling my old system

    AFAIK, it's just not allowed in the FS/FT section of the forum as an "interest check."

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    Honestly, that's just wishful thinking. MS already tried the all in one media/console device with the XB1 and it didn't fly as both, and they were even playing off of their console "success" with the OG Xbox and XB360. No amount of Apple magic is going to move people off of Nintendo, Sony, and...

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    The fact that new consoles just released on x86 means that your desktop gaming PC is going to be tied to x86 for at least the next 7 years.

    Simple question for anyone who has upgraded from Zen 2 to Zen 3...

    I changed from a 3600x to a 5600x and did not re-install Windows. Picked both CPUs up just fine. No issues. No reactivation nonsense.

    RTX 3080 watercooled w/ a Kraken G12, but what about a 3080ti?

    There is no possible way that anyone could give you an answer as there hasn't even been a 3080Ti announcement or release pictures to guess.

    Questions about using an Asus Hyper PCI-E to M.2 adapter

    It depends on the board. Some old boards did get NVMe support (990FX Sabertooth comes to mind), but the vast majority of them did not. I had a Samsung 950 Pro drive which also has a oprom to allow boot from legacy bioses. It worked fine even at PCIe 2.0 speeds on my LGA1366 setup. As for...

    Intel’s Highly Anticipated Rocket Lake CPUs Will Land In March 2021 And Be Backwards Compatible With Z490 Motherboards

    I think it depends on how much faster the cores are. You could see an 8 core beating a 10 core in multithreaded apps, but it will probably be a mixed bag depending on the workload. See the 5600x vs 3700x debate with AMD. The 5600x is faster in some multithreaded workloads even though it has...

    Comcast data caps are coming in January all over the place

    I guess it depends on which part of my state if they come for. I haven't seen a letter yet. If it is just reinstating their old caps it doesn't affect me, but if it's new it does.

    X86 is a dying plafform, will AMD switch to ARM soon?

    The fact that new consoles just came out means that you won't move gaming away from x86 for the next 7 years at least. And I'll believe it when I see it for a socketed ARM processor that pairs with a motherboard allowing for PCIe expansion slots that performs on par or better with an x86 solution.

    Intel: AMD Is Throttling Ryzen Performance When Running On Battery

    Lol...sitting here looking at my TRD Offroad 4Runner that I've taken off road exactly once ;).

    Finally got my parts together... did I screw this up?

    Just out of curiosity, what does something like that run nowadays?

    Comcast data caps are coming in January all over the place

    I'm sure they will cite bandwidth issues, but the real issue for Comcrap is that they have been reduced to a dumb pipe into people's houses. Their only recourse is to find creative ways to charge for the pipe. This all could have been avoided, but they refused to allow ala carte Cable channels...

    Comcast data caps are coming in January all over the place

    Next thing you know, streaming services are going to be subsidizing Comcast to remove the caps and then your subscription fees will increase.

    Yes, or the regular Trident z instead of the Royal.

    Finally got my parts together... did I screw this up?

    The RAM is expensive for what it is. There's nothing inherently wrong with it. You can get similar performance for cheaper.

    Looking for decent budget PSU to put in older XPS PC?

    I've used it and it works fine. I'm not a fan of their "white" psu's, but I've never had a problem with the 500W Bronze ones. That Seasonic S12III from NE is $39.99 AR right now. I'd probably buy that honestly unless you want to buy from Amazon.

    Finally got my parts together... did I screw this up?

    I have a Deepcool Castle 360 in my O11 Dynamic and it runs fine. I wouldn't worry too much about the case unless you plan on tearing the whole thing apart and redoing it. If anything, I'd add a couple 140mm exhaust fans on top if you're worried about cooling. As for the motherboard, yes, the...

    This Copy Of Super Mario Bros 3 Just Broke A World Record As Most Expensive Game Ever Sold

    This is an early variant of the box art with the "Bros." moved to the left and over Mario's gloved hand before they moved it over to the center not covering anything. This wasn't just a regular SMB3 sealed box. It's unlikely that anyone actually had one of these. The same with the sealed copy...

    You actually didn't. You were 4 times more likely to score a 6xxx card than a 3xxx card on launch day...bots or no bots.

    Which of these SFX PSUs on 6800XT + 5600x?

    I would have bought the Corsair SF750. I can't find them for under $250 locally, but I don't have a MC near me. I got the Silverstone SX700 instead since I could actually buy it. I already have a SF600 in another build and it works fine. It's probably enough for what I'm doing anyway, but...

    Lenovo 4700g System - $540

    Shouldn't be surprising since it's an OEM part. I think I heard that the 5XXX APUs were going to drop earlier...we'll see.

    scalpers starting to return cards LOL

    I saw someone in the FS/FT threads returning a 3090 because no one would buy it at MSRP+shipping. The 3070/3080 are still in high demand, but the potential buyers for the 3090 seemed to have dried up.

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT Unboxing

    The fact that they still say "Coming Soon" and not OOS tells me they didn't even try to sell cards yet. Why not? They probably don't have any to sell.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I think my problem was that I hit F5 when I should have just kept clicking the next step button a couple thousand times on the shipping screen. After I hit F5, I was never allowed back to that screen. "Access Denied"

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT Unboxing

    That's probably because they don't have any to sell.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Mine did at checkout. I went through the steps prior to launch with an instock item just to know what to expect. (Didn't help).

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    It's not saying he bought one. It's saying what the poll topic is.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    That's just revisionist history. At least people could get these into carts. 3080's were gone before they were actually on sale to bots.

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    It's not 503 anymore, it's access denied. Wonder if my IP was blocked for spamming.

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    I got fucked. I had payment info done, but then it wouldn't click through the shipping tab.

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    It's not even for sale there. The product link takes you to a sold out Ryzen 5000 series page.

    WTF just happened? Did they actually launch anything at 9 AM? This was worse than the 3080 launch?

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    the product page showed up at AMD.com, but when you click, it says page not found.

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    I just was playing around on AMD's website, and it looks like Chrome is bugged for checkout for me. It won't take the payment info (prefilling it with a filler item and then refresh cart and check out hopefully). I had to use the new edge to get it to take payment info.

    where to buy and what time for 6800xt (?)

    The other Nvidia GPUs and Ryzen CPUs went on sale at 9am Eastern Time. I'm expecting the trend to continue.
