    3.2TB SSD for $240

    These use a physical x8 slot, but only run at PCI-E 2 x4 speeds. So it'll fit in x8 or x16.

    92% health left, can't complain for $200 :)

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Bought 1 for $200 yesterday, should arrive on Monday so I'll benches then. 3.2TB for $200 seems like a steal as long as you have an extra PCIe slot.

    Zen 2 Review Summary

    Meanwhile GN is doing just fine while doing more in depth analysis than even this site used to. The stuff is still there, you just have to look past the entertainment youtubers.

    Zen 2 Review Summary

    Anyone who thought amd was going to destroy a 9900K or OC’d 8700K in gaming was just a blind fanboy. I’m impressed by how much they improved compared to second gen though. The clocks are a bit disappointing but that’s why you don’t put faith in idiots like adoredtv. If you only care about...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'd buy it again, the game is good enough to warrant it.

    Zen 2 Review Summary

    OT: I agree for the most part. Having just being able to stick your CPU in and maybe changing a couple settings around while getting 99% of max performance is nice. But, AMD is advertising boost clocks that nobody seems to be really hitting. I think we might see this improve IF it's a bios...

    How did you get to that conclusion? He literally said 4.2-4.3ghz is probably all you will get with AIO/watercooling.

    iPhone X May Be “End of Life” When Replacements Ship

    See that’s funny because you found the need to comment on this thread and throw insults at a whole group of people just based on their phone purchases. I don’t find the need to go into Samsung/LG/HTC threads and insult their users because I’m happy with my phone and don’t need to justify it. But...

    GPU Prices Skyrocket, Breaking the Entire DIY PC Market

    No. The 9 series is still OK, but anything before that is worthless AFAIK.

    GPU Prices Skyrocket, Breaking the Entire DIY PC Market

    Sold my 980Ti for what I paid for it 1.5 years ago. This is a great time to get out of PC Gaming IMO. Time to get another hobby to replace it. A lot of games are just focused on loot boxes and become uninteresting after a few weeks.

    iPhone X May Be “End of Life” When Replacements Ship

    And the anything-but-Apple crowd will continue to bitch and complain about devices that have no effect on them. I’m not sure why everyone is always so insecure about their phone purchases.

    NVIDIA Wants Retailers to Sell GeForce GPUs to Gamers, Not Miners

    It’s a free market, but this will hurt PC gaming. Memory prices going up were rough, these GPU prices will deter a lot of new gamers. Whether that’s good or bad is up to the individual. I personally don’t care either way anymore.

    Apple to Invest $350B in US over 5 Years & Pay $38B in Repatriation Taxes

    Why should somebody who has done nothing but sit at home get a payout from a company that was going bankrupt ~20 years ago and ended up becoming the most valuable company in the world? I didn't realize bringing back money from abroad was going to face backlash, then again this is Apple so logic...

    FS: 980Ti, 1050Ti

    I have an EVGA 980Ti SC (reference cooler) and an EVGA 1050Ti SC for sale. Both will come in an EVGA B-Stock box. For payment I only accept BTC or ETH. The coins are sent at a price we agree on, then I ship after I receive the coins (confirmed). If you aren't OK with that please move on :). Pics...

    Congress Proposes Repeal of $7,500 EV Tax Credit

    Power plants are more efficient than cars, electric cars are more efficient than ICE vehicles. Anyone disputing that needs to go research a bit more. Also you can have registration and other taxes to account for roads, you don’t need a fuel tax.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING TITANIUM Review @ [H]

    As Trump would say "Wrong". A fully OVERCLOCKED 1070Ti uses 5W less than a STOCK Vega 56.

    Defiant Theater Owners Are Refusing to Play “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

    What if they make the ticket prices really cheap, but charge an extra fee for “premium seats”? That’s technically not part of the ticket and they would still make the same profit (y)

    Chevy Beats Tesla for October's Highest-Selling Electric Car

    Buy a bolt for your commute to work, get some other car for weekends, simple. You can get a slightly older bolt and a loaded V8 Mustang/Camaro for the price of a Tesla and still have more fun on the weekends. Buying the bolt as your only car isn’t something I would do though. Then again I...

    Apple: Color Shifting, OLED Burn-in “Normal” on iPhone X

    Ok, since I know this thread will devolve into nonsense “screw Apple” again, this is just to cover their asses in case something happens. I.E after 3 years there’s some slight burn in or color degradation. They aren’t saying every screen is going to have this after a few minutes like the Pixel 2...

    Starcraft II Going Free-To-Play

    I only enjoyed the custom games in the original SC, same with SC2 although the custom games system was a clusterfuck. I might replay the campaign for SC1 soon, I remember enjoying it quite a bit back in the day.

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    $500 versus $1000+ for a 4K capable gaming I don't think those who "care about" better hardware and graphics are all limited to getting PC's. The Xbox One X is way more exciting than the PS4 Pro was IMO. I know everyone always talks about Exclusives, but honestly most of my games on my...

    Study Finds Fringe Communities on Reddit and 4chan have High influence on Twitter

    I still don’t get why he keeps insisting everyone needs to go to college and that college is an indication of intelligence. Most college majors are a joke, and we shouldn’t be making it free for that reason. Too much screwing around for the public to foot the bill.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING TITANIUM Review @ [H]

    In the long term, that really doesn’t matter. Nvidia is still easily outselling them with higher margins at that, 1070’s also got hit hard by miners, as did 1060’s.

    Upgrade from GTX 780

    980Ti is about 50% faster than a 780Ti, which is what, like 20-30% faster than a 780? OC it and the gap widens. For playable 4K you would probably have to go with High or Medium settings for very demanding games if you want 60 FPS. There is often very little difference between Ultra and High, so...

    Elon Musk Tesla Model 3 Production Is Months Behind Schedule

    There's a slight difference here though. If Tesla went away tomorrow, how big would the effect be? They sell almost nothing in comparison to other car companies and while their SpaceX rockets are cool, they also wouldn't have a huge impact right now. Tesla also hasn't made money except for 1...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING TITANIUM Review @ [H]

    In cherry picked games, sure. Except none of the DX12/Vulkan aka AMD favored games really pushed the envelope on anything. Maybe Deus Ex, but DOOM and Wolfenstein aren't impressive from a graphical perspective. Nvidia "reacted" to Vega because they see easy money to be made. AMD is still...

    YouTube app killing battery on iPhone 6s

    YouTube app has been garbage since about a month or two ago. I had to turn off background app refresh because it just kept doing some nonsense in the background. Still gets a bit warm during videos, not sure wtf Google is doing.

    Guy Documents Nearly a Year of Quality Problems with His Tesla Model S

    Almost all of the price of a Tesla is for the batteries, electric motors and autonomous features. The interior isn’t even close to $80k levels, and neither is the fit/finish.

    Apple iPhone X Discussion

    This is what I’m doing. I was all set for the iPhone X until the keynote, at which point I just picked up an 8+ instead. Hopefully they have a Plus model with an OLED screen next year.
