    Am I interpreting this framerate test correctly? If black rectangles are moving across the screen, should I ever see any "overlaps"?

    Hello all, I have a JU6500 40" Samsung from several years ago, and while it was so cutting edge at the time and cost me over 800$, I've always been a little wary of the actual quality of the panel. I got it more for the screen real estate than the quality, but now that I'm eyeing a better panel...

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    I imagine if miners are buying up GPUs and then they take a bath in the markets, they'll be looking to offload their GPUs quickly for cash instead? Same with scalpers; is there a chance they start going BELOW MSRP? I'm just wondering what happened last time.

    At this point considering the Puget or Origin premium simply because they seem to have stock; is a builder worth it?

    Was looking for Ryzen 5, RTX 30X0s, and at this point only the builders have them in stock. Naturally there's a labor/warranty premium from these guys, (I compared part by part to their cost, and it's about 2300 to do it myself and 3100 for them to do it). Are there any comparisons of the...

    Can bad SATA cables be responsible for bandwidth slowdown, disconnects while showing 100% in Task Manager? How does the 100% even work?

    My system is from 2014 btw; AFAIK my PSU is enough? It's 650W, 4770k, 32GB ram, GTX970, 2 SSDs, 4 HDDs. At any given time at least one of the HDDs will be disconnected. I thought maybe it was a bad SATA cable, so I swapped some around and then the ones that were working swapped, but then it...
