    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    BestBuy has had a few rigs for $1,199 today with the 3060. I decided to grab one since nobody is selling bare cards at or near MSRP anymore. $1,199 for Ryzen 5 3600, 16gb ram, 3060 (non-TI), 1Tb hdd + 512Gb SSD isn't that bad. I had a similar spec HP on order, but cancelled it since the...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    After a few days of using the ducky I decided I needed some sort of wrist support. Ended up making a little wrist rest out of some scrap 1x3 and am really happy with it. Need to get some poly on it. Fun little 15 minute project with some sandpaper.

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Just got a ducky one 2 sf pure white and really enjoy it so far. Still using a g502 mouse. I went with blue switches this time since my last board had browns. Gotta love that click. A few complaints about it so far - I got the "year of the rat" space bar, and the color is a little more...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    It seems like there are some pre-builts with nice specs and a 3080 around $2k. almost seems worth it to buy, sell the 3080 for $1,400 on ebay, then buy another one once prices come down and get a nice rig for ~$600 + whatever video card you add later.

    I quit gaming.

    After having kids I've had almost zero time for games. I'll still fire up CS:GO for an hour or two with a few cold beers after everyone goes to sleep, but it's pretty rare.

    Cherry MX Browns Too Loud For Office?

    I do a lot of phone interviewing, and my browns were distracting. Now I have two keyboards sitting on my desk, one with browns for when I'm just working alone, and an apple keyboard for when I'm on the phone

    “Amazon Should Replace Local Libraries to Save Taxpayers Money”

    "Amazon Go basically combines a library with a Starbucks." wait.... what? Amazon Go has nothing to do with Books or Coffee? Also.. the Forbes link is dead now.

    I feel like this is a dumb question - POE injector question

    Player unknown Battlegrounds

    Bought this today after a few friends convinced me to. Played about an hour and a half tonight. It seems fun, but I get bored sitting around waiting so I start running around, then I get shot in the face. Seems fun, but I'm not sure how much time I'll spend playing. In my hour and a half I think...

    Nothing PC at Gamestop ...

    I don't understand how game stop is still in business. If there is a title you are looking forward to, why wouldn't you just pre-order it online? Same with new consoles. Even trading in old games can be done online through Amazon now.

    Apple iPhone X Discussion

    64gb space gray pre-ordered, but showing early december delivery date. I got the case for it yesterday and it is smaller than I expected. I'm excited to see how it looks when I get the actual phone. If I don't like it, I'll sell on Ebay and buy an 8 plus.

    Portuguese ISP Shows Us What the Net Looks like without Net Neutrality

    It's kind of funny how the argument goes both ways. With Cable TV everybody complains that they are paying for a bunch of channels that they will never watch. Nobody complains about all the websites they have access to that they will visit.

    Amazon May Finally Accept PayPal

    I see no reason for amazon to accept paypal. They already offer their own payment service that is much better (and more cost effective for sellers) than paypal. Slumping to paypal seems like a downgrade overall. The sooner paypal dies, the better.

    Video card upgrade for older machine

    Turns out that the 1060 was a great choice. Picked up another 16gb of ram and have been getting 60fps on ultra @ 2560x1600. Some tearing and dips down to ~48fps during crazy explosions and stuff. Overall, totally stoked with the purchase.

    Video card upgrade for older machine

    Monitor is 2560x1600, but I don't need to max everything out. Most of the gaming I do is still older games anyways.
