    Soo basically 3060s are coming out yet people can't even buy what they released Sept 17th?

    Christmas and black Friday this year pretty much sucks. There is supposed to be an abundance of shit to buy. For tech shoppers, it's a barren boring landscape this year. I hope my step up from evga gets to me by July. Nothing to buy. Drought of a holiday for tech toys. Blows.

    Soo basically 3060s are coming out yet people can't even buy what they released Sept 17th?

    Is it me? Or every review now vaporware? They are releasing more and more cards yet no fucking body can buy them? Is this some sort of joke? Kinda funny when none of this hardware is even available.

    Is Samsung 980 PRO actually faster than other SSDs in real world?

    Hopefully MS direct storage will really take advantage of NVME drives. Supposedly it's a game changer for gaming and IO. We'll see.

    You know.... I thought I wanted a 3080. But. If AMD comes through with stock...

    I bought a 2070 super xc ultra from BestBuy the day the 3080 went on sale. Now you can't even find them at the store anymore. Even old cards are scarce now. Crazy shit.

    When nv and amd release their cards to the general public in June of 2021 we'll be able to enjoy the new hotness.

    Who cares. I mean really lol. Being able to buy one of these cards right now is like winning the lottery. I am a bit bitter that June of 21 is probably when the scalpers will let up. Till then, it's vaporware to me. Why am I so bitter!? First world problems bruh.

    Xbox series X

    Best Buy website just crashed for me. You couldn't even search for xbox series x without the website erroring out. I am done with this shit until next year. Not worth it.

    The thing is, will there ever be any available? Or will this just carry onto the 4-series and never end? I mean it seems like the demand is unbelievable. Like, there will never be any in stock.

    GIGABYTE GP-P850GM 850W or CORSAIR - RMx Series 850W

    I have the RM850x PSU. It works fine and powers my system well. I use two seperate pcie cables for my 2070. Not one problem and the thing is quiet as hell. Every single PSU out there has issues. There are no 100% positive reviews for anything. Always remember that.

    Just had a brand new Corsair RM850X die.

    I have the 850 RMX and it works fine. Just get a replacement. No matter what the PSU, someone, somewhere will say it's junk.

    Help explaining Windows HDR settings

    Xbox series X

    Will there be any in stock ANYWHERE launch day? I was thinking of going to my local best buy or gamestop. But fear they won't get any.

    Everything is gone again?

    Yeah I have a 2070 super and am in the step up queue for a 3080. So I really am just going to wait. Nothing I can't play right now that needs a 3080 other than for the sake of having extra fps.

    Everything is gone again?

    My local Microcenter in Cambridge Massachusetts is completely sold out. I don't think they got a lot of cards to begin with. I really expect March of 2021 to be the time when these cards will be available for everyone. Until then the demand is going to outstrip supply.

    Everything is gone again?

    Go AMD! Wonder what nV is going to say this time...but but the dog ate the pallets we really meant to ship out. It's all good. I am not trying to buy one. Just eating the popcorn watching the show. I can't even pull up microcenters website.

    Everything is gone again?

    Did I miss anything? Is nV and AMD completely wiped out? I really should invest in a bot at this point.

    **The state of GPU's and their purchasability** This is a rant post, anyone else agree with me AFTER you read this?

    What I want to know is...how the f*ck are there this many gamers on the planet? I mean, it's like everyone and their mother now is a pc gamer. Crazy shit. 90 year olds using bots to buy a 3080. Unreal.

    3070 on launch day

    What time again? 9am? I wonder if microcenter is going to pull a douche move again and open at 5am and sell out before they open the doors at 10. I have a 2070 super that I am stepping up to a 3080 with. Would be nice to go shopping though.

    Have gigabit internet but windows 10 is slowing it down?

    I know about overhead but that typically comes in the form of acks back on the upload right? So my upload would take a hit while 105MB/s is coming down, but I should get my line rated speed on the download of 940mbps/117MB/s. I got this speed all day with FIOS. Just windows 10 can't get past...

    Have gigabit internet but windows 10 is slowing it down?

    I just ordered two cat 8 cables. I was just getting 105 MB/s from steam. I just can't get to 117 MB/s which is what my line is rated at 940mb/s I really feel this is a windows 10 problem. I'll see what the new cables do. Just seems like I can get up to the speed but it can't sustain it steady...

    Have gigabit internet but windows 10 is slowing it down?

    I have gigabit internet from my ISP. The tech that came here can get 970+ mbps all day all the time. As soon as I hook up my windows 10 pro system, it goes up to that speed but then trickles down to 600 to 700. For some reason my system can't sustain gigabit 940+ speeds. What in windows 10 would...

    WD Blue M.2 worth it?

    Pretty much. Maybe a second or two. That is why huge sata ssds are very worth it for fast game storage. Until direct storage from Microsoft comes out next year, that is when nvmes should really shine.

    WD Blue M.2 worth it?

    More than likely you'll see no difference in game loading times. Maybe some but pretty much no. Benchmarks will look good between the two though.

    WD Blue M.2 worth it?

    You want the nvme for your windows install and the sata for your games drive. 3500/3000 is the speed of the m2 nvme. 500/500 is the speed of the m2 sata. Def get the nvme m2 for your windows install and the m2 sata for your games drive.

    3070 on launch day

    Pc and gaming hardware is in retard demand right now. Those cards will be gone in seconds. Just like the 3080 launch. The only way normal users are going to get one is wait until Jan Feb until the rush dies down. Too many people not knowing what to do at home scooping this stuff up. And bots and...

    Has your G-Sync display locked you into the Nvidia EcoSystem?

    What does it matter? The rona caused pc hardware market to freaking explode. Do you actually think bots aren't going to do the same thing that they did to nv? Right now the demand for gaming at home is so high. My King Henry big toe could sell pc hardware and sell out in seconds. It doesn't...

    I get that they are optional. But are those drivers better than installing the latest chipset and MEI drivers from my motherboards site? I mean they are showing up for a reason. Are they better performing drivers than what I have now? I'm just wondering should I install them.

    How to set up vpn server on my home pc so I can connect to it anywhere?
