    Total War Warhammer 3

    Sorry, but it strikes me as more of an expansion on 2 than warranting the price tag of a full game.

    While my B&H 5950X doesn't show shipping info, the charge just hit my CC so I'm hoping it gets out tomorrow.

    I was having WHEA issues with my Crosshair VIII + 5950X until I upgraded to the latest BIOS. Ran for 3 days straight with Folding@Home set to max since then with no problems. Ram is G.Skill B-die running at the XMP profile for 3600. As for availability, I've been trying to get another 5600X...

    You need to race because they seem to limit how many are allocated to certain regions/stores. I fought with their system for a 3060Ti and a 5900X. Both let me add to cart but when it came to the checkout, it wouldn't let me pick any store near me.

    CYBERPUNK 2077 US$43.99 / $41.79 with code

    Definitely holding off on this for at least a day or two to get solid feedback. I've watched the "trailers" and most of it seemed to be cut-scenes versus gameplay. The skills/development mechanics, as described, do seem interesting and I love me some Cyberpunk, but just because they dished out...

    They seem to have implemented an automated blocking system with an extremely low threshold.

    So who else ordered a Ryzen 5000 series CPU?

    This should probably be asked in its own thread but as a quick check because you didn't mention it, are you using a discrete GPU?

    Same. Already in the socket. Just need to finalize and triple-check the rest of the install.

    Oh, I have been, but even with the Discord notifications, I've never been able to get anything but the Zotacs into a cart let alone actually purchased.

    Zotac has been the only relatively consistently available 3090 I've seen lately. Managed to snag one with overnight shipping for cheaper than most other vendors. Ordered late on day 1, they shipped on day 2, and it is here today.

    Zotac had a drop but the 3080 and 3070 flew out. Might still be a 3090 to be snagged. https://store.zotac.com/graphics-cards/geforce-rtx-30-series

    So who else ordered a Ryzen 5000 series CPU?

    I received the 12/21 date and I ordered almost 0100 Eastern. For now, my intention is to hold onto the preorder despite having a unit coming from Amazon. This is not to scalp but to possibly pay it forward to a worthy [H] member.

    Is a more modern CPU better for gaming?

    Much would depend on what you were planning on playing as well. Games such as Civ 6 that have a lot of compute-based tasks would see significant gains as well. Then there is the wholistic aspects of upgrading to the current generation too. Assuming you already are utilizing a SATA SSD...

    He is implying that circumventing IP or session-based blocks is trivial. Most of the bot herders already have their systems cycle source IPs as a matter of course.

    Just love seeing all the listings already on eBay showing order confirmations from the like of Newegg with the price they paid.....which is half of what the list is for.
