    ASUS Warns Radeon RX 6800 XT Initial Stock To Be Limited, Ryzen 5000 CPUs Ravaged By Scalpers

    Consider this: Unless you're crunching numbers to beat COVID, your shit is already "Fast enough for the likes of you". Going from 90 to 110 frames per second isn't that important. Going from 100 to anything higher is equally "nice to have but hardly necessary". If your render takes 10...
