    i5-7600k to Ryzen 5 5600x worth the upgrade?

    In today's market that gpu is more than acceptable for 1080/120hz. In Control the game that I was playing when I upgraded from the 7700k to a Ryzen 2600. The frame rate normalized during heavy action sequences, even though I had my backup 970 instead of the 1070 attached to my previous build.

    Need opinions on motherboard for a 5900x

    That Tuf board was such a low price that I had to bite. I've resisted picking up the 5900 several times in the last few months, because use case or terms like overkill aren't as loud a message as technically able to to run.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Nerfs Not Only Ethereum Hash Rate But Also Other Coin Algorithms

    So to sum this all up. Low Hash-rate chips are an infuriating exercise in futility because Nvidia is trying to convince it's gamer segment not to worry about their crypto segment. But alienating everyone else instead? I can get behind this all being Marketing BS, I just can't figure out what...

    Ditto except I was still using a Tseng Labs card up until I could convince my parents that a Geforce 256 32MB SDR would help my school work. The 8800GTX was just out of my price range so I settled on the 640 MB GTS. And how else would I be able to afford Vista Ultimate for playing Crysis on a...

    NVIDIA quietly introduces the GeForce GT 1010 — A Pascal GP108 GPU with 256 CUDA cores, 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM, and 55 W TDP

    Yeah but it's much more fun than just providing basic video out. At least to me. I get they're just cleaning in between the proverbial sofa seats. And it certainly looks better than billing them as kinda broken 1030's. Unless the iGPU and APU market really is that bad right now...

    Pixel 4a thoughts?

    Well, coming from the refurbished pixel 2 that I had been previously using the 4a certainly holds it's charge better. I don't know if it's the phone or Android 11's "aww fuck it." Attitude towards camera apps but something's not working right.

    Worth upgrading from a 4770k at this point?

    Yeah I followed that logic pretty much to a T, coming from a 7700k. I tell you it was almost like going from a q6600 to an i7 920 and almost hitting 20 fps in crysis at 1680x1050 for the first time.
