    Suggest a new Monitor for me

    Currently running a LG Electronics UM95 34UM95 with a 2080. I'm looking to upgrade to the same size monitor that supports HDR and Gsync in the $800-1000 range....any suggestions?

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Coming to PC November 5th

    This had to be the longest game I've ever played-I got it when it first came out and put in a few hours every day-maybe longer on the weekend if I didn't have anything to do and it still took me almost a month to finish it. I was so burnt out on it that I really didn't get into the online parts...

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Coming to PC November 5th

    Good question-I'm in the same boat-I finished it on the Xbox1X when it first came out.

    Looking for Monitor mount for tablet/small monitor

    I currently have a swing arm mount (attached to my foundation) attached to my 29in monitor in the basement-I just picked up 13inch LCD to use as a secondary monitor and I'm trying to figure out a way to attach to the 29in monitor. I ordered this with it...

    Homeworld 3.... Crowdfunding?

    I pledged $100 bucks for Blackbird Interactive's Shipbreakers-which eventually evolved into Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. Guess what happened when that came about? They refunded me my $$$ and gave me the game for fucking FREE! I bought the Remaster edition of Homeworld when it came out. I'm...

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    I spent about $2500 on my last PC build in December-I don't have a 2080Ti or i9 CPU, but its fast enough for anything I throw at it. I'd like to get a 120hz monitor, but had an unexpected Tax bill this year, so that killed off that idea. My old PC is in the basement enjoying retirement, just...

    PayPal's new refund policy has sellers up in arms

    I ran into this with sellers from China with another hobby I have-I ordered 3 different things from two vendors-both of them where shady as fuck-one sent a fake tracking number (never did anything) and the other never provided a tracking number, accepted the payment nearly 29 days later (pushing...

    Toyota Has a Curious Justification for Not Selling Any EVs

    Its due to cash for clunkers back about 10 years ago and rising new car pricing. Cash for Clunkers killed any excess inventory in the used market and newer used cars had to be traded in at higher levels to help off set rising pricing in new cars/suv/trucks. I remember back about 27 years ago...

    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    I saw CM and was underwhelmed by it-it didn't suck, it just didn't "entertain" like the other MCU movies did-I'd rate it around the first two Thor movies. The Hulk is the worst of the bunch. With that said, did see potential with it-maybe different director/script would work better. As for the...

    Toyota Has a Curious Justification for Not Selling Any EVs

    But at the same time, California isn't exactly like the rest of the world-people who can afford Teslas are buying them because they have the same cult that Apple had 5-10 years ago. Those were the same Prius buyer 15 years ago when they first came out. BEV are the future, but even with CARB...

    Toyota Has a Curious Justification for Not Selling Any EVs

    Not exactly-Diesel is extremely dirty in relation to a gas engine in emissions released. The additional upcharge for diesel engines (plus maintenance) and the gap between MPGs Diesel vs Gas engine has shrank dramatically (due to newer emissions standards being tougher on diesel) has practically...

    Nvidia's Freesync Monitor Support Tested

    It depends on what your playing-I was on the Google Chrome streaming test of Assassins Creed and it wasn't Bad at all The graphic quality wasn't that great (then again I do have a 34inch display-would look fine on a 1080P monitor) but overall it wasn't a horrible experience.

    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    I really liked the first Captain America-the first two Thor movies weren't all that. Captain Marvel as a bit of a let down-it didn't wow me or did I enjoy it as much as the other Marvel movies. It has potential, but overall it felt flat. I'd rate it to roughly even with the first two Thor movies.

    Huawei Launches a Lawsuit in Texas

    That isn't going to happen-it will fall under National Defense protection-we aren't going to tip our hat to as what we know and how we know it. Even though they already have a US based subsidiary-they would still be required to follow US laws. I know from working in the DOD world-the company I...

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    Is going to wind up looking like the X-which looks like a puffed up Model S The X is fucking ugly looking-they should go for a more traditional 2 box/CUV look instead of a Sedan that has a mutated passenger cabin. I'm gonna assume the Y is going to look like ass too.

    The Division 2

    Two complaints: I've played the private Beta, Technical Test and now the open Beta-and all I'm doing is repeating the same missions as what was in the Private beta, but it does appear that there is some more missions in the open beta (played for about 2-3 hours Friday) Other issue is more or...

    California Dealers File Petition against Volvo's All-Inclusive Car Subscription Service

    Answer me this-if this was so easy, why don't we have self flying planes (completely remove pilots from the cockpit) or self driving trains yet? Both are far easier then a self driving car to do due to more or less fixed paths they need to take and there is a hell of a lot less variables to deal...

    California Dealers File Petition against Volvo's All-Inclusive Car Subscription Service

    And your drinking the coolaid if you think thats going to happen-Cars/SUVs are kept for a much longer time then any other consumer item-at least 8-10 years...its going to take years for all the non-self driving cars to be replaced. When they can have a self driving car figure out were to park...

    California Dealers File Petition against Volvo's All-Inclusive Car Subscription Service

    Fully Autonomous cars are a ways off..there are many issues that need to be solved so they can actually replace most cars with it. They'll make in roads in certain places were factors are limited (i.e. getting people around parking lots and the like) but you going to need a major improvement to...

    California Dealers File Petition against Volvo's All-Inclusive Car Subscription Service

    Not many people have $30K in hand to plop down on a new car, but I get what your saying. If it was only $400 a month, it would be worth it, but I normally keep my car 8 years or so then replace it.

    Palmer Luckey Details His Vision of Reshaping National Security During Interview

    But it "works" and has most/all the bugs worked out of it. NASA was using old dino tech computers on the Space Shuttle (I think 286 Laptops or something?) because it did what it needed to do and worked. An old company I worked at made parts that where based off 40 plus year old specs for the...

    Here Is the Tom Clancy's The Division 2: Story Trailer

    People pick stupid hills to die on... Getting this game for free via my Rx590 purchase was the number one reason I bought the video card (not to mention to sell my 1080 to help pay for my new system). I enjoyed the game even on my laptop in my signature for the most part, but I do admit that...

    China Completes Successful Soft Landing on the Far Side of the Moon

    The Russians talk shit alot, but they can barely afford new weapons systems these days. As for the S300/400-well the US has a S300 system in its posession and it didn't fair to well against the IDF in Syria with non-sleath aircraft going against it.

    Apple Lowered Its Q1 Revenue Guidance Due to Slow iPhone Sales in China

    Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Footage Allegedly Leaked

    Rumor has it that RDR remake might be DLC for RDR2-which makes sense. I have this feeling that RDR2 isn't going to lend itself to making billons for Rockstar via Online play-the time scope is limited and that's going to limit its appeal to many players. They'd be better off generating single...
