    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Got a Asus prebuilt today with a 3080 for $2000. I was planning on upgrading my whole system anyway, but wanted an AMD processor. Need to figure out if I should try to sell this 11700 system without the GPU or just keep all of the parts as my new build.

    3070, 3080 or 3090 for 4k@120

    What card would I need to push 4K @ 120Hz? I’m not playing anything crazy, Anno 1800 and some older games like ARK, but my understanding is that for 4K the memory for textures is a limiting factor.

    LG CX 48" 55" 65" 77" 4K OLED TV 120Hz VRR HDMI 2.1 - Microcenter (Refurbished)

    I was at MC last week specifically looking to see if they had any 48” CXs in stock, saw that had 5 refurbs for the $999 price and decided to think about it (planning on doing a new build in May, don’t think my 970 could drive a 4K display). 24 hours later it was on SlickDeals and I’m regretting...

    LG 48CX

    I’m thinking about getting a 48CX for my office, but don’t have the option of going on a stand behind the desk. Would 36” be too close? What’s the optimal viewing distance for a 48” screen? Also, what’s a good price for those? I see has these for $1450, but the 55” in store is 1400...

    App crashing - how to fully remove and reset?

If I play the same file in Windows Media Player its fine. Standard VBR mp3 files. Any ideas? Windows 10 Pro, Xeon E2286M, 64 GB RAM. Forgot to...
