    Is a used GT 710 from eBay a bad idea? Just need a cheap GPU to perform data recovery on a system whose iGPU is not working.

    Typically they are older video cards that are using a fake BIOS to mimic a newer card. Usually they will still boot into windows and function as a basic graphics adapter but may not work with newer Nvidia drivers. I haven't had one personally but they do pop up from time to time on different...

    Is a used GT 710 from eBay a bad idea? Just need a cheap GPU to perform data recovery on a system whose iGPU is not working.

    There actually are fake 710's floating around which is kind of funny. If you just need it to get display output then I wouldn't worry too much. If you get one and are suspicious you can check the bios with GPUZ as it will flag it.

    Ya this doesn't look good, hopefully they get this sorted out soon.

    They fixed the HUD bug with the patch yesterday. I don't think I had any inventory crashes either in a few hours of expeditions with a friend. DX12 stutters are supposed to be fixed as well, it seemed a bit smoother but I didn't have the issue that badly.

    I agree, but it's what this game is based on. I'm not sure I will do them over and over but it's good for a break from expeditions if you really want a legendary. Hopefully they add something more dynamic in a DLC.

    So apparently they worded some of the changes poorly. You still get a single legendary for running through the bounties/hunts/library quest lines every time you reset them. https://www.reddit.com/r/outriders/comments/mngo4x/fyi_patch_notes_were_poorly_worded_you_still_get/

    Well, I can't blame them really. It's not a good sign that they took the easy way out for the exploit fix and add blanket nerfs a week into the game. If they keep nerfing all the fun stuff and push all the rewards to a single activity (expeditions) then the game will get old fast. I don't get...

    I guess I'll have to try the Trickster bullet build just to get a taste of it before it gets nerfed. Also not liking that they are taking away a guaranteed Legendary farm option because of a multiplayer exploit. It would be better if they just fixed the exploit.

    I finished the story tonight at about 21 hours playtime. Overall it was a fun game, I didn't get bored of the gameplay so I will continue on with the Expeditions and may level up another character or two. The bugs are rampant though, I had a lot of crashes when trying to enter zones and one or...

    Also two nice things that may or may not have been mentioned is that you can skip the prologue when creating second and third characters. As well you can respec at any time for free.

    I played 6 hours yesterday to level 12, about 2/3 of it solo and finished the first multi-form boss which was kinda cool. Playing an aggressive Trickster is way more fun than when I played Technomancer in the demo as I didn't really know how the game worked yet and was playing it as a normal...

    If you play it as a pure cover shooter it is pretty boring. I've read that you can play it run and gun and rely on your healing powers, so I picked Trickster as they get a healing and a shield bonus on close-range kills and am giving it a shot without using much cover. If the game gets too...

    Let us know when you get past the demo content, everything you have posted we already knew. I'm more curious about whether the battle areas get more interesting with better variety and whether the game actually has a gaming hook that hasn't been done before. My main complaint was that it...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    A lot of these new models don't make sense. I get a feeling they might cancel the existing models and release the new ones in an attempt to force higher MSRP. Otherwise why have 2-3 cards over a 10-15% performance performance spread when you can't even satiate demand with the existing models?

    New RTX 3080ti rumors surface: 12GB of GDDR6X, April - mid May Release

    From a vendor, not from Nvidia. One AIB partner listing in in a chart doesn't mean it was ever officially scheduled yet the 'media" jumped on it like it was locked down ready to go.

    New RTX 3080ti rumors surface: 12GB of GDDR6X, April - mid May Release

    I like how rumored cards are now getting cancelled and delayed before they are even confirmed by Nvidia. First the 3080 20GB and now the 3080 ti. It's not "Oh hey we got the info wrong" it's "our info was totally correct but this unofficial card was totally going to release in April then got...

    Discord has apparently reached out to Microsoft to discuss its sale.

    I find it weird that people say they like the teams interface but hate discord. To me they are very similar and I actually feel like I navigate discord more easily than teams.

    New RTX 3080ti rumors surface: 12GB of GDDR6X, April - mid May Release

    I'm not really sure what to think on this. On one hand they can just sell whatever they make with little effort so why introduce another new model when there is no competition. On the other hand 3080s seem to be more scarce than usual recently, so it wouldn't surprise me if they stop...

    My AMD.com order arrived today: I'll run it in my main rig for the next week or so and then switch back to the 3080. I'm curious how it will compare.

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    Unfortunately I didn't test gaming before the swap as I never really had issues with the card for normal workloads. If anything it probably makes gaming performance slightly worse as you are adding more heat for the heatsink to deal with resulting in higher overall core temps and likely lower...

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    Like kirbyrj mentioned I would double check the pad contact. I only swapped the memory pads and left the stock ones on the power stages. Did you use the 2mm on the memory and 1mm on power?

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    Hash rate went up a bit, 85 to 94 which is still a bit low for a 3080 I think. I'll have to tweak the memory clocks a bit now that I'm not at risk of burning things up. From what I've read the back pads only decrease temps a few degrees, the bulk of the improvement comes from better pads on the...

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    I started mining on my Gigabyte 3080 Aorus Master in my off hours recently and noticed the fans would hit 100% almost instantly with memory temps at 110C. Gaming thermals were actually decent, 70% fan speed and ~65C on the core. I checked around and it seemed to be a common complaint with all...

    Artifacts black dots only on 165mhz. Gpu or monitor or driver issue?

    People already told you it was monitor related. You have a 3090 and a 1440p monitor why are you worried about 1080p 165hz performance? Either game at 1440p or use GPU scaling as you already mentioned that fixes the issue, there is not much more to be discussed here.

    6700 Speculation & Rumors (NOT 6800/6900x)

    Networking with Ubiquiti

    I was reading the support forums shortly after ordering the UDM-P and it was pretty shocking. Not honoring auto-update settings along with having a 8-5PM WiFi schedule as default in the new UI led to a bunch of people wondering why their sites suddenly had no WiFi. Not sure how they let the...

    I played about an hour and a half of Real VR Fishing last night on the Quest 2 with a friend and had a lot of fun. I was impressed that you can have voice chat and play music via the games built in music player and even with the stock headphones it cancels out your music so only you hear it and...

    Thanks, I ended up just ordering a UDM Pro so I should be good. Also have a Unifi 6 Lite on the way and will hope the Unifi 6 LR is in stock soon. Although I need to run cable in the attic for it anyway so maybe it is good they are a few weeks out at the earliest. 😅

    The fan noise on the USG Pro kinda worries me as I will be moving my office to the room next door to my laundry room where all my ISP gear is. I think I might just go with the UDM Pro, it's on the expensive side but having everything in one box along more headroom for faster connections is...

    Going to jump on this thread as I am in the same spot. I plan to get the Wifi 6 APs when they are back in stock, one Unifi 6 LR for upstairs/main floor and a Unifi 6 Lite for the basement. I have an Edgerouter ERX that might be due for an upgrade at some point. I was looking at the USG device...
