    My Strix 2080 Ti arrived today along with my Intel I9 9900K and ASRock Taichi z390 Ultimate MB. Just got finished installing them all and just in time for the long holiday weekend.

    Yea, its crazy how fast stock on these disappears. The only one's I see consistently are the Nvidia FEs.

    ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti Video Card Review @ [H]

    I woke up at 345am on Nov. 1 and just happened to check Nowinstock and it showed this card in stock at Newegg. I bought one and it will be here in a few days but when I checked Nowinstock after I made the purchase it was no longer in stock. I don't know how many Newegg had but it couldn't have...

    6700k or 5820k build

    I was facing the same decision on both of my machines at home a few weeks ago. Finally, the biggest deciding factor for me was that I do a LOT of video encoding on both machines and even though the 6700K is fantastic for a quad core at doing encoding as well as gaming, it can't make up for 6...

    MSI Launches The GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

    Its fine if you don't believe me or anyone else that has a 980 Ti that clocks above 1500MHz. I'd make a video but I'm simply too lazy to go through the trouble. I don't need to prove anything to you and I have no reason to lie about it either since I'm perfectly ok with it if you don't believe...

    MSI Launches The GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

    If I'm lucky then I got lucky twice, because both of my MSI 980 Ti 6G's exceed 1440-1450 quite easily and will maintain those frequencies. One of mine is slightly better than the other but the worst of the two still maintains 1482MHz under load.

    MSI Gaming 6G 980TI Review

    Mine doesn't exceed 70c about 95% of the time even in the most demanding games, honest truth. I do run a custom fan profile but they never exceed 85-90%.

    MSI Gaming 6G 980TI Review

    Ahh ok, I didn't get the joke then but I don't have any temp issues with them. I keep the house nice and cool at 72F anyway. I haven't had a heat issue with a video card since I got rid of the AMD 7950's I had a few years ago, those would actually heat up the room noticeably.

    MSI Launches The GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

    Stock BIOS, I play at 2560x1600 on a Dell 3011 30". Yes, way. The one that runs at 1515 will throttle down to 1502 in very intense games but it will fluctuate back between 1515 and 1502, I can live with that.

    MSI Gaming 6G 980TI Review

    I don't concur, both of my 6G's are quite stellar. I don't combine my PC experience with someone else and I have 22 years personally.

    MSI Launches The GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

    I have two 6G's, one does 1486MHz, the other does 1515MHz, both 100% stable in all games and apps. Witcher 3 is a tough test and will usually expose a poor overclock pretty quickly, so will Assetto Corsa and Project Cars.

    980TI GAMING 6G vs 980Ti GAMING 6G LE

    I've got two MSI 980 Ti 6G's, both have no coil whine at all. I have a Seasonic X1050 power supply also. I would also like to point out I have no cooling issues with either of my cards either using a custom fan profile, even with the fans running at 80%, they're super quiet and temps never...

    Which model 980Ti? Best Variant?

    Not saying that the Zotac Extreme isn't a great card, I'm sure it is, but its only the fastest STOCK clocked card available. Overclocking varies and every card is different. I have a MSI 980 Ti Gaming 6G that's 100% stable in any game or application at 1520MHz core and 8200MHz memory and runs...

    I just finished it a few hours ago and this game was awesome. For all of the critics, I would say this game is like a very enjoyable action movie, sure it's not going to win any major awards and go down in history as a classic but it can still be a very enjoyable experience that had you glued to...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Overclocking Video Card Review @ [H]

    I have two overclocked 980's but SLI doesn't work on either of those games currently that I'm aware of. Performance is very good on both games, rendered at 2880x1620 and downscaled to 1920x1080 resolution. Alien Isolation runs at 60fps rock solid, I have to lock Ryse at 30fps at that resolution...

    New NVIDIA 9-Series may be knockout blow for AMD

    When AMD can't win on performance, they resort to becoming the value leader as usual. Nothing new there. There are people willing to pay ridiculous prices for having the top card though so performance per dollar doesn't matter to everyone. Just saying.

    NVIDIA Maxwell GPU - GeForce GTX 980 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Sure they did, but at a huge expense. The 780 owners will get just as much mileage out of their cards for a LOT less money. It just worked out that way.

    NVIDIA Maxwell GPU - GeForce GTX 980 Video Card Review @ [H]

    I think its a fair assumption that 95% of Titan owners didn't buy them for compute or professional applications. They bough them for gaming because it was the fastest card available at that time. It just so happened to be grossly overpriced compared to any other card before it. The Titan era has...

    New NVIDIA 9-Series may be knockout blow for AMD

    I have three 780's and I just ordered three 980's and I'm not bitter. Titan owners were the one's that got screwed when the 780 was released. Since then, its been fair game.

    NVIDIA Maxwell GPU - GeForce GTX 980 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Should be pretty exciting for a Titan owner, almost 20% faster, draws considerably less power and about half the cost of a Titan. That's a huge win. Its not quite as exciting for 780 and 780 Ti owners due to them not overpaying nearly as much as Titan owners did, that much I'll give you.

    NVIDIA Maxwell GPU - GeForce GTX 980 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Ordered three vanilla 980's today. Two for SLI in one of my PC's and one for my HTPC. Even though they won't be a huge upgrade over three 780's, I like the power savings and reduced heat output. I'm sure there will be faster versions of this card coming in the next few months, probably even a...

    Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition

    I'm confused. What do you mean by this statement? You know the TX wheel can be used on all PC racing games and sims as well as the Xbox One? I use my TX wheel about 80% of the time on the PC and 20% on the Xbox One. It is not interchangeable among consoles but very few wheels are.

    Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition

    The wheel base is very good, the pedals and wheel rim are just ok. This isn't the best place to ask advice for such things, you would be better served going to an actual racing sim forum where people actually use wheels and pedals. I'm disappointed that anyone would even give you advice...

    Console owners what TVs do you own?

    You are aware that there are no LED display TV's? They are LCD's with an LED backlight. I see people say LED TV all the time and in the home theater community it makes you appear ignorant.

    Console owners what TVs do you own?

    And I'm completely against your opinion, the 61" and 67" Samsung DLP's were some of the best TV's ever made from a picture quality standpoint. The only TV's that were better were equal or better were Pioneer Kuro plasmas and Panasonic VT series plasmas. Only the very elite LCD's today in the...

    The high end Fanatec pedals are solid but the wheels are pretty unreliable for long term use. I use a Thrustmaster T500RS wheel and TH8RS shifter. While the pedals that come with the T500RS are a solid set, I'm looking to give the Fanatec ClubSport V2 pedals a try soon.
