    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    I'll believe AMD when I can see it in actual usage reviews and buy it from a store. AMD likes to talk big and then release cards at current gen prices but matching last gen performance. I do hope they can do something, but it's unfortunate they couldn't meet or beat nvidia to release. I would...

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    on a side note RIP anyone trying to sell a 2000 series card right now on the FS/FT forum or ebay, although lots of dumb people on ebay so if anyone is selling here go post to ebay fast and bottom price and offload before you won't get a bent penny for your gear. $499 for 2080ti performance, and...

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    and like usual AMD no where to be found, and when they do they'll release big navi at 3080 prices at last gen performance. I'm all for giving AMD a shot if they actually release something meaningful, but with this jump in performance and price that team green just dropped it's going to be hard...

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 $99 (Upcoming deal 9/2-9/27)

    Just got a Costco flyer in the mail. 9/2-9/27 they are having the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 setup for $99 which is a steal for that setup. $40 the normal price of $140.

    $150-$200 best value? 280x has died

    personally I'd try to score a nice 980ti off ebay, shouldn't have any trouble getting one of those on the lower end. It's not the most recent but still a beast of a card.

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    ^ this I've had a steady flow of AMD GPUs through the various PCs in my house and a 5700 in my kids right now and haven't had a single issue. I'm sure some people have problems with AMD drivers just like some have them with Nvidia, but honestly across both ecosystems I've had next to no...

    Is a more expensive projector screen really better or worth it?

    what price are you talking about for expensive? I have a $50 pulldown I got from fleabay and it was decent, but upgraded to Elite Screens Sable Frame B2 from amazon for $200 and it was night and day better, it's also a fixed frame which is so nice if you have the space. I love it.

    Are EPYC chips difficult to find?

    It's so sad what businesses do with their old hardware. I work for a giant financial processor and we literally decommission perfectly capable and maintained hardware just because of age and that's it. These are 10/20/30k+ server racks that just get piled up and we pay a company to come and...

    Just got my first projector - Is this decent?

    looks like a nice unit! I've been in the market for a used one too and finding good deals on used tech is so hard. I'm not a low baller, but people be asking like %90 return on 5 year old tech gear is insane, that and shipping. $60 to ship a projector. WTF you smoking. I shipped a 50lb laser...

    [H]OT - Microcenter AMD sale (2600x - 79.99, 3600x - 159.99, 3700x - 259.99, 3800x - 279.99, 3950x - 699.99) + $20 mobo discount!

    Stupid Microcenter, they were literally in the process of opening a new store in my city right as the 2008 financial stuff went down and they pulled the plug. Soooo pissed, sooo many missed deals. F U Microjerks being In Store only and not in every state.

    Google Pixel 3

    Samsung phones are pretty clean these days and you can uninstall most of their apps. You can replace the dialer if you so wish. like %90 (don't quote me on that number lol) of samsung apps are just on the google play store now, they just happen to come pre loaded.

    Google Pixel 3

    I wonder if you could try to re-flash the latest image or maybe an older image and see if it correct. Not just a factory reset. Could be hardware though, and it's unfortunate Google seems to be pretty sketch on support. I used to use Nexus and Pixels (before making the switch back to Samsung)...

    Note 9

    I had a Note 8, replaced it with a Iphone 11 (hate it) so picked up a used (hopefully decent note 9 from fleabay) that should arrive in a couple days. I assume the note 9 is a step up from the 8 from every review I've watched/read so I would say you would be really happy with the move if you...

    Ebay coupon?

    Since this thread seems to have some ebay users in it I've always wanted to ask someone who is familiar with ebay shenanigans this... Why on earth is soooooo much out there grossly overpriced? I mean if you find any currently sold in store items it's almost guaranteed to be like %10-%25 more...

    The Official MSI Radeon VII 16G Product Page Is Now Live

    Maybe if it was priced right, I honestly haven't read much on AMD cards in a while, but they always seem to price their cards at nearly nvidia levels but with far less performance most of the time. I don't get it?

    Tv or monitor for gaming

    43s405 43" 4k TV from TCL. Best purchase I've made for the computer in a long time. Display is incredible. Input lag rivals that of many dedicated gaming monitors. It's a 60hz VA panel. I'm sure if I had $1000 to drop on some high end gaming display it would be better, but for $250 you really...

    Linux Developers Threaten to Pull “Kill Switch”

    I feel like we are heading towards a Joy Joy Feeling society from "Demolition Man" with all this crap. Not everyone is a winner or deserves to be included in everything. If you can write good code then by all means contribute it, if you can't then you can't and don't cry about it. get better...

    New Hardware Architectures and Software Drive Innovation in a Post Moore's Law World

    It seems like a lot of stuff these days is developed around just using the hardware to power through poorly optimized code instead of smartly using all the processing power at hand. Say World of Warcraft for example, basically uses a single core to %100, but practically nothing on the GPU or...

    bf1942 is back online

    No Way! that's awesome, I despise the current Battlefield games, way to twitchy quake/doom style these days. Sucks that kids/people have such low attention spans that everything has to be in your face action.. Gonna have to dig out my install disc later

    China Lacks the Decades of Sustained Investment to Compete as a Tech Innovator

    one thing that I think will help china break through that hurdle of not having the extensive history of tech innovation like the US is that they won't have the hurdles and road blocks and politician issues like we have. I believe there is lots of new tech and ideas and things that could truly...

    So now that E3 is over, what is your most anticipated game?

    Always love me a good elder scrolls game. just wish they would start implementing multi player support in their games. I for one would love to be able to run around skyrim with the wife or kid or both and have some fun. It's such an open world game I can't see that it would be so difficult. It's...

    What game do you think should get a sequel or a remake?

    OMG yes, this for sure, and agree keep it to the regular TNG/DS9/VOY Universe. I want faction based large scale play. like BF1942 size maps. would have to break from the story a little bit cause the Klingons aren't at war with the Feds, but would be damm fun to say play as a starfleet defending...

    Any good 24" 16:10 IPS/VA for work purposes these days?

    U2412M might be old, but they are fine displays. I'm still using 2 of them for my main rig. gaming movies editing all look great. Too bad I'm guessing you aren't in the SE Wisconsin area. I'd sell you mine for cheap. Although they are fine displays I'm wanting to upgrade to a 1440p setup. I need...

    Third Class Action Suit Against Apple Over Defective Keyboards

    Ford is Cutting Car Production Back to Just Mustang and Focus Active Models

    Not all that surprised those lines aren't selling, I mean at the the price level many sedans are across the market these days it's stupid to not just go for a Honda or Toyota these days. Your standard issue Ford Chevy Chrysler is just no competition to what you get from Honda/Toyota these days...

    EVGA GTX 1070 Ti In Stock at Below MSRP

    I'm waiting at this point unless they drop to well below MSRP. I've waited this long (still rocking a GTX 770) I might as well save up more and score one of the next gen cards when they first release which if lucky can score at MSRP before the inflated prices kick in.

    Dell and HP Resist the NVIDIA GPP Leash - So Far

    Nice to see some big names standing against NVIDIA's shady deal. IMO there's nothing "For the gamer" about anything NVIDIA is trying to do. They are a business that's in the business of making money, they certainly aren't here "for the good of the gamer" lolol. If that were the case they'd find...
