    Anyway on a desktop pc to use my integrated graphics on my i7 7700k processor and my EVGA Nvidia graphics card ?

    You need a Plex Pass to enable GPU transcoding. not sure if you have a Pass or not or didn't know you need it.

    Worth upgrading from a i7 7700k right now or should I continue to wait ?

    not anymore. AMD with the 5000 series was better at gaming than intel, but the 11k intel looks nearly on par, but still lagging a little against the AMD 5k series.

    Worth upgrading from a i7 7700k right now or should I continue to wait ?

    Ya, got lucky with the RTX 3080, friend of my brothers got an extra one and I was able to get it. It's probably not worth it unless you need to crunch some data/encode with the CPU. I just wanted it since it was a 12 core, but this 8 core I have has been really good as well.

    Worth upgrading from a i7 7700k right now or should I continue to wait ?

    I've been an Intel fan for the last 25 years but AMD came out with some fantastic CPU's in the past few of years. I went AMD this round due to the huge performance increase. I would either sell or keep the 7700k, sell it if you don't need a second system, keep it if you do. I put my old 4790k...

    So questions for those who have an X570 motherboard that has an 2.5G Ethernet NIC port...

    you don't have to configure anything, just plug all the nics to the switch? And copying 1 large file will transfer using all 4 ports at the same time?

    So questions for those who have an X570 motherboard that has an 2.5G Ethernet NIC port...

    I am using that port. I bought a 2.5G card for my Plex Server and have them directly connected for faster transfers between the machines, and using the 1Gb nics to hook to the network.

    I am using my old GTX285 in my Retro XP machine I slapped together a couple of years ago. The card still has a warranty too, I checked it a couple of weeks ago when I was doing my RMA on my 3080. And I stuck this card in there too,

    Asus X570 Dark Hero, no sticker seal on the box?

    That sticker looks like a vendor sticker. I have yet to get a mobo from Asus in the past 25 years that had a sticker holding the box closed.

    Back in the 90's there was a computer store on nearly every street corner. Do you all remember those days? We also had the monthly computer shows where retailers all along the coast would come to sell hardware.

    I was browsing Dell the other night to see what the cheapest machine you could configure with a 3080 and 3090 were. I also checked HP's site and their estimated delivery was 30 or so days.

    Old Core2 duo, could it?

    I left that on there so I didn't accidentally mix up the dead card with the new card. Would have sucked to send the working card back on accident, lol

    I was using this old 775 system with an old GTX 1050 for surfing and watching HD media. Has a Xeon which is equivalent to a Q9650. replaced it with my old 4790k system when I finally got a 5800X cpu.

    I gotta brag/vent to someone that knows what I'm talking about.

    I paid $40 for this Pioneer 1022k AVR and these JBL Studio S38 speakers a few years back. The S38's sound like I have a subwoofer attached to the system since it has such great low end for a mid sized bookshelf style speaker.

    I started mining yesterday with Nicehash's Quickminer. I am tempted to put my 3080 into my old 4790k setup and just let that mine and use my 1080ti in my primary gaming machine as I seem to just play Overwatch and the 1080ti runs that game just fine at 3440x1440 @ 120Hz. Also, why doesn't the...

    Does Adobe still allow license transfers for discontinued products?

    What product? Adobe turned off the CS2 Activation/Authentication servers a few years ago so they basically gave away the program with a special key to activate the new downloads. Not sure if it was just CS2 or the older ones as well.

    Both of mine says Packaged in the USA on the serial number stickers on the boxes. The serial number of the new card is around 300 higher than my original one.

    Installed the EVGA Hybrid cooler on my RTX 3080 FTW3 and now my PC stops at on Code 97.

    Ya, mine might have been a refurbed with a fresh cooler on it since it had the peel still on it. What makes me think that is that the bottom of the outer sleeve didn't have the EVGA seal on it, just the top was sealed.
