    Gaming CPU - Best value

    Spartacus09 Thank for the info... I figure it was gonna run pretty hot but sounds like its a scorcher. I ended up finding a 5600x on the forums for slightly over MSRP so I bought that. I think that should be fine with the case I have and I can probably still use my Hyper 212 Evo to cool it if I...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I may regret it but I cancelled the 5800x. Just doesn't seem like a great buy. I honestly rather get a 5900x if I am gonna be spending that much anyway. I am probably gonna get a 9900k but I think I might need to get a new case since my Phantek P400S TG doesn't really have great airflow and the...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    From what I have read none of the current cards take advantage of PCI-E 4.0 speeds and thus performance isn't greatly impacted by going 4.0 so that's not much of a concern. I am more just looking for value. I think the 5800x is not that great value to I am going to cancel the order but still...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am okay with buying a new board and would rather not run a hacked bios. I don't plan on upgrading anytime soon after this upgrade so the dead socket thing doesn't really matter much to me. I am leaning on canceling the 5800x and just getting a 9900k and MB combo.

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am not really considering the 5600x atm cause its very hard to find unless you want to seriously overpay. I was barely able to get the 5800x ordered before it sold out. The 5800x seem to be the more accessible of the Zen 3 chips atm. I have not ordered a MB yet however.

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am planning a PC upgrade and curious what the best value is currently for gaming at 1440p. I have a Ryzen 7 5800x ordered from Amazon but as of today its not going to be shipped until late January. Curious if this is even worth the price for 1440p or if I am just better off getting a i7-9700k...

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Thanks but not a fan of pfsense. The Netgear is outside of what I was willing to spend on an AP. Went with the TP-Link AX and its been great thus far.

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    Probably gonna get the 3080 if I can snag one before they sell out. I don't want an FE though. Aren't some of the aftermarket card coming out on the 17th too? Then plan to pair it with a Zen3 chip if the performance matches expectation.

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Yeah the shitty router they supplied doesn't bridge either but a its separate device from my cable modem so I am just pulling it out altogether.

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Looking to upgrade the shitty wireless router that came with my internet service. I don't really need anything with a great deal a features just reliable and secure. It doesn't have to be a router since I am replacing the router that came with my service with a Sophos XG Firewall box. Been...

    He has a long history on this forum of thread jacking/crapping. He spews his "vast expertise" on any and every thing hardware related disregarding practical usage and frequently blast people for buying anything that doesn't suite his personal tastes or needs.

    Best CPU for 1440p 144hz gaming

    After doing some more research based on the games I am playing at the moment I am more GPU bottle-necked than CPU so I plan to hold off as prices for upgrades to my 1080 aren't very competitive at the moment. My only real option value-wise is a used 1080ti but it still going run at least 500 so...

    Best CPU for 1440p 144hz gaming

    I don't really care to bother with O/C. I can get a 2700x (HS/F included) paired with a MSI x470 Gaming Plus at Microcenter for around $411. I think an Intel kit would probably be closer to 500 with not very must more performance.

    Processor Upgrade Advice Needed...Intel 9th/8th Gen or Ryzen 7 2700x

    Yeah I just looking for the best value really. So while the i7-9700k is in my budget I don't want to buy it just cause I can if I am not really going to see much of a difference at 1440p between it and say the Ryzen 2600. I would definitely like it to be a noticeable jump from my i5-7600k but...

    Looking to upgrade my system in my signature, mainly so I can pass along the hardware I'm currently using to my GFs PC. Wanted to know what the best options for 1440p 144hz gaming for CPUs. I don't plan to overclock anything. I will just be needed to swap the CPU and motherboard out. I...

    Grim Dawn -- $4.99 -- Humble

    Yeah very fun game... Love the aspect of combining different spell trees to create different classes and how you improve your existing skills (adding new aspects to existing skills instead of just leveling it up) instead of just replacing the skill with a new one.

    Hunt: Showdown at Green Man Gaming 20% Code

    I'm assuming that each team has their own set of clues. Perhaps make it so that the clues are harder to find but that once one is found other teams can't find that clue. I guess that could make it just a race to find the clues then but there is still a chance you could stumble on the bounty...

    Hunt: Showdown at Green Man Gaming 20% Code

    I really like the recruiting mechanic and that if your recruit dies you lose all that is associated with that recruit (traits, upgrades, and gear). Hopefully that will make people more willing to embrace the team aspect. Lots of team based games suffer from too many one-man commandos. It took...

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    It's clear the comment I responded to was a rash generalization... Are you implying somehow that when "righties" make death threats it's somehow more acceptable because of the issues they do or do not support?

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    Death threats aren't exclusive to "leftists". "Righties" dish out their fair share of death threats. Lets not act like there is any exclusivity to that behavior. Fairly ignorant to imply otherwise.

    Various Aukey Blue Switch Mechanical Keyboards from 24.93 to 46.79 + tax - 'Zon

    The youtube reviews that I watched and the Tweaktown review I read said the AUKEY KM-G3 (listed last) was a very good buy for the money at full price. Hard to say how legitimate the reviewers are. Sadly they turned off the code pretty shortly after I posted it.

    Monoprice Mech Keyboards: Backlit - $23.99/Non-backlit - $19.99 FS

    Got mine about a week ago and have enjoyed it this far. I do notice the squeaking noise mentioned by SPARTAN VI but only occasionally. It doesn't really bother me though but I can see how it could for some. Still a really good keyboard IMO for 24 bucks. The back-lighting options are pretty slick...

    Recommendation on Mid/Full Size Tower Upgrade

    Thanks!!! I think the air flow differences might possibly push me towards the Evolv. I only have the need for two HDDs and plan to replace the stock fans that come with the case with LED fans so those aren't much of a factor. The pictures on Newegg site seems to show what I thought was a fan...

    Recommendation on Mid/Full Size Tower Upgrade

    I did watch a few reviews on that one. I looks like a great case. Are there any specific advantages for this one over the Eclipse P400STG? From what I can tell the main difference beside the aesthetic design is that its a bit smaller (fewer fans, etc..). I like the look of the Eclipse a bit...

    Recommendation on Mid/Full Size Tower Upgrade
