    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Hoping to play some more Half Life Alyx. I have thought of playing through Uncharted 2, 3, or whatever again.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I finally played HL Alyx. I bought it a couple months ago and never even launched it. My God, what a great game. Finally a game that feels like a VR masterpiece.

    Ten minutes of Half-Life: Alyx: The biggest VR goosebumps we’ve ever had

    Glad to see this is getting positive reactions. I mean, I love HL so this is a no brainer. Cool!

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Yeah, That was kind of my thought when i posted it. Kind of a general heads up on whats fun or new or worth going back to play. Retro, PC, anything!

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Picked up DragonBall Xenoverse 2 for the Switch so I will be on that a bit. Also Mario Odyssey. Kind of on a switch kick. If that don't do it, then maybe some Outer worlds on PC and of course some trash rounds on Overwatch for dessert.

    Craigslist finds

    NICE! I have found some sick stuff at GW. A few great speaker sets, turntable, pc and networking stuff. Hit or miss but you go all the time and nab the good stuff. GRATS! B&W makes some really great stuff.

    Is SLI faster on Zen 2 (3700x, etc) ?

    Nah, I get the vox populi, I can clearly see that the industry isnt going to keep supporting SLI so I am not going to go that route. My initial impulse for even asking was an article I read that said that SLI might work better on multicore boxes, but if the developers are not going to code for...

    Are any of these true wireless ear buds any good?

    Update: So I have used these a lot now and for the most part am happy about the purchase. HOWEVER I have uncovered a downside to these that I am pretty unhappy about. The sound volume. Cranked up in a quiet room they seem loud enough. But say, you are mowing the lawn...NOPE can't hear shit...

    LG 25UM5x - black sheep of the UWs

    I had this before I upgraded to the ASUS PG348Q I agree with the OP 100% the LG 29" version of this and it was excellent. The colors and image quality was great. 25" seems a bit small but I know what he is saying. For the money it is an excellent budget display.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I remember playing F.E.A.R. when it first came out. I never finished it. Great game. I might go back and see if I can get it running again.

    Are there any cheap Wifi6/AX routers or access points?

    It is kind of a hidden gem. You wouldn't think a $69 router would be this good. Been running for a couple weeks and it is awesome. I will be out walking the dog and realize that I am still connected to wifi. Crazy.

    Is SLI faster on Zen 2 (3700x, etc) ?

    So really, and thanks for all the erudite responses, it is hit or miss but still, in a lot of games two 1070Tis can bring a decent performance boost. Let's say I got an extra 1070ti for free? Is it worth it then?

    Is SLI faster on Zen 2 (3700x, etc) ?

    Hi, I just upgraded to a 3700x and I have a 1070TI. Runs great. But now I am seeing the price of used 1070TI cards getting low enough to where I am wondering if going SLI is a good option. I have read reviews and I know that some games benefit, some don't. However, with the Multi-core power...

    Some Stadia Features Won't Make Launch

    I thought I would read the Stadia Terms and conditions. I thought this was interesting....In fairness, I have not read the terms of other services like Steam or GOG or anything, but I think that at least in the case of Steam that they have proven themselves over many years. Google has a track...

    Best RGB case fans ?

    Looking to put more fans in my Corsair crystal case. I want to control the LEDs via my motherboard rgb headers. I want to control fan speed as well. I don't want to add any more controllers or anything to do this. What is a good, even better reasonably priced RGB fan? TIA

    Windows 10 1909

    I loaded up the update yesterday, I am going to rerun 3Dmark to see if I bench any different. I don't notice any difference, the machine is still smoking fast.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Been a while since I posted in this thread. I hope to play some Outer Worlds this weekend. A bit of Overwatch, but I am kind of losing my desire to play it anymore. It is like Blizzard just "balanced" the game to death and it feels like it in every game I play. There is just no joy in it.

    Some Stadia Features Won't Make Launch

    Lol, so to run stadia you need at least a quad core pc with 16gb ram and a 1060 or better, and that is just for 1080p. lol. I admit it, I hope this crashes and burns.

    Some Stadia Features Won't Make Launch

    Yeah, I don't know what will happen with this but for me, I like having my games in Steam. Maybe someday steam will die and I will lose all my games, but so far, and it has been a long time, it is still the best. I have a chrome ultra, so i will check it out on a 4K tv, but I simply don't...

    I blew up my 3600

    I saw a video where they were talking about how the voltages were too high on some stock MB bios settings. I wonder if people are feeding them too many volts. Sorry, I am a OC noob.

    Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer #2 shows off character redesign

    I cannot believe that they were actually considering the original design like, ever. It was horrifying. The new one at least looks like sonic. I agree though, it will suck. They should let you in the movie for free if you come in with a VMU

    128-Core AMD Epyc Rome Server Tear-Down

    I don't know about licensing I was more referring to raw speed. With all table spaces on PCIE4 and all cores blazing, well, I would just love to test something like that for a week. :)

    Are any of these true wireless ear buds any good?

    For the price I just don't see how it can get any better than these. I almost got Raycon's but these were half the price and seemed exactly the same. If you have any questions about them or want pics let me know.

    Are any of these true wireless ear buds any good?

    The anker soundcore sound is very good. Neutral but bassy enough. I have not had drop outs or connection issues of any kind. Bluetooth range is very good. I can keep my phone anywhere and I only lose connection when I am in the farthest corner of the house. Fit is great too.

    Are any of these true wireless ear buds any good?

    I got the Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo True Wireless Earbuds. I do love them, they fit great, very good sound, battery life is great, and the bluetooth connection is fast and the range is great. They were also stupid cheap. $39 after an amazon instant coupon. For the money it is a no brainer...

    Are there any cheap Wifi6/AX routers or access points?

    Just to follow up, I got the above Tp Link router and got it running. So far it is EXCELLENT. Range is great and I am getting every last Mbps (100Mbps) from my provider to the desktop over AX. Other machine running AC or N I forget which is also very fast. I recommend

    I blew up my 3600

    Yeah, I have always gone with the cheapest ASUS MB I could get in the past. This time I got the Gigabyte Aurous X570 pro wifi which was only around $250. Granted I am not overclocking so I don't know how that would go, but it seems like a great MB. I will say this, choosing a MB is probably...

    I do think that the x570 is a much better choice for many reasons but for OC especially.
