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...
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.
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...
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 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
What gear are you running currently? Can you setup a span / monitor port on the existing firewall / router?
Or build one like this:
hak5 also has one available for cheap:
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...
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.
You could find a 3750X in that price range if used is an option:
The fans are not super quiet, but they are not that loud either.
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.
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.
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.
Have to show off our first Daughter. Born on December 15, and we finally got around to taking a few posed pictures of her. Never did baby photos before, so I am open to any critique you guys can offer!

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.
So I went to fire up the battlefield 1 beta today and discovered my current card is too old (driver outdated and no newer version available).
Ordered a PNY 1060 (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01IR5MR32) from Amazon, how bad of a bottleneck will the rest of my machine be with this card?
I'm back in action! Thanks Kyle.
I was freaking out last night because I tried every password I could think of and no longer had access to the email address I used when signing up (remember back in the day when you couldn't use a free email address?)
