    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    Try it once more, when the hook sets it sets deep. Get through the Barron quest. If you don’t like it by the end of that quest move on. That’s plenty of time to find the hook.

    Creative Super X-Fi Headphone Amplifier - $60 - AVSForum Best of Cedia 2018

    FWIW, I thought this product was junk when it came out (Super X-FI headphone amp as per what this thread is about) and have multiple historic posts saying it was junk. I was a pre-order purchaser, so had it from the beginning. But as I mentioned previously, the steady stream of firmware and...

    You are wrong. And I’m happy for you because your experience is about to get that much better. Try the demo track I linked with your setup now, and then follow the steps I recommended, and play the same track again. The difference will be incredible. Don’t believe me? Well then perhaps...

    Creative Launches Super X-Fi Amp

    This is worth buying now, certainly for $60 It performed well in the ASR tests as a regular headphone amp if nothing else. But they have improved it via software since launch and it now support iPhone and Android via App. I use mine regularly for PC gaming...

    Creative Super X-Fi Gen 2

    At current closeout? price of $60 it's worth it They've done some nice updates over the years, and the product is much better now than it was at launch, + the app now works on iPhones, and PC finally. It took 2-3 years to become a nice product and I never figured it would happen based on...

    Daily Mining Profits

    Does everyone just stack? Or are you selling immediately? I’ve pretty much only stacked since I started mining in mid 2017. I’ve bought four different ASICS with the BTC I’ve earned, but sold each for USD after they turned a profit. Like anyone else, I wish I would have started mining in the...

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    Excellent Trailer for the new Matrix. I'm definitely down to watch that! I still remember watching the original Matrix at the theater - such a good movie. The sequels were poor in comparison. I hope they get this right.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    maybe 25 years ago. . . . I agree that was good back in the day, but it's not even relevant in the modern list of demo worthy soundtracks with Dolby Atmos and atmospheric audio now being the gold standard, and those old titles sounding dull and lifeless by comparison. I have a reasonably top...

    Daily Mining Profits

    Props to nicehash for being able to optimize my 3080 better than I can with its automated OC tune function on quickminer. It consistently long term mines at 99-100MHs at 214-215 watts.

    They finally did it, 43 inch, 32:9 and it's FLAT

    Maybe Original Poster REALLY REALLY likes full length Craftsman Wrenches? And with a traditional 16x9 display, he could only showcase stubby wrenches?

    They finally did it, 43 inch, 32:9 and it's FLAT

    Repeating question since it wasn’t answered for previous poster. What images do you have that you want a 9:32 ratio monitor to display? Movie posters aren’t that ratio - and that’s the most common use case I’ve heard of for someone wanting a portrait rotated display. I don’t understand the...

    Two family XBOX - share Xbox Ultimate?

    My kids that want to play some Xbox games. I have a XBox Series X console right now in my theater room, and was thinking about buying an Xbox Series S for the living room TV - so the kids could play without taking over my home theater space. It seems from my reading, that I have to make the...

    LG to make a 42" OLED panel in 2021!

    Depends on the games you play. I haven't found a recliner yet that offers a good mouse and keyboard experience. None of the lapboards do it for me, and I like to play most of my games with M&K.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    I beat the game back at the first of the year. Loaded it up to see what patch 1.3 brought. I see at least one new quest sequence, and it acts like I haven't yet won the Mission BEAT THE BRAT, which I did. Also I've now lost my Legendary Gorilla arms. They are no longer in my inventory. I...

    Anyone Helium mining?

    it's only a percentage of the helium you'd mine - but yes to get full profitability you'd prefer not to be in a deadzone. However - unless you live on a bunch of private acreage - chances are something will spring up sooner or later in your area.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Scalping IS their job. If they get one every day because they wait there every day, and they make $1000 on each card that’s 5K a week or $20K and month. Untaxed. 240K a year if it could go indefinitely. That’a 5x average wage here in Kansas City. Good while it lasts… Selling just one card a...

    When is Ethereum Proof of Work/mining actually going dodo?

    right - been promised and right around the corner at least since I started mining in 2017. At this point I wouldn't even worry about it. You'll have ROI'ed on any modern GPU you buy before it actually happens is my guess. I'd be more concerned with what EIP 1559 will do.

    How profitable is mining, really?

    You shouldn't need to do that. Depending on your GPU. With my Ampere cards (30 Series), a 3080 for instance. I have my GPU running at 225 watts, 1200 memory, and can play indie titles without even stopping mining. I can use the desktop, surf the web, watch youtube, and if I didn't see the...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    This spring 3-4 year old 1070 cards were selling for $700 bucks. That’s twice original cost. Fast forward 3-4 years — if the same thing happens and original 3080 cards are selling for $1500 again in the next mining boom, but LHR cards are selling for $500 you’ll wish you’d cared about resale...

    Anyone Helium mining?

    VoskCoin on YouTube is where I heard of it. He’s got a few videos on it comparing the different iterations of hardware. I think the DIY options were discontinued, at least that’s what I read. You get paid for network coverage using token HNT. For a few months there people were making like...
