    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    Because it's a value set by the creator, just like you set a value that your entertainment budget is worth $1 an hour. If you go to kart racing around here, it's 7 minutes for $25 dollars. Or $428.50 every 2 hours for entertainment. People think it's worth it. Some people find value and...

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    I think in this case that people are taking the steps to buy it for $8, play it, and then return is the dick move. I agree with you that there's a lot of classic games worth playing, and that $8 might even be to much for this. But if someone actually buys it, beats it, and then returns...

    Looking for advice: Zotac 3070 and EVGA 3070 Ti are the same price - which do I get?

    I would vote for EVGA as they have traditionally the better experience among our forum goers. Will say this though; I've had to RMA thankfully a few video cards, and one of them was a Zotac 970 and another a EVGA 2080ti. Both companies were very easy to deal with with the RMA process. Evga...

    Worth going from a i7-9700k to a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X?

    Yeah, Windows is pretty good with the switch. Though I do believe it will unvalidate itself if you reinstall any motherboard. It won't stop you from letting you use windows, but if you go to activation it will tell you that you do not have a validated version of Windows anymore. I think the...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    I stopped oc'ing because of heat dissapation to the room. Even with Central healing and a window unit, having all the machines blasting including my wifes make it either loud room but comfy temp, or hot room with lower sound. Oh and also cause I'm old.

    TPU AMD RX 6600 XT Review

    Hardware uboxxed did a good showing for it. X8 does have some drops but the only thing above a 5% decrease was doom. Doom had a massive 25% decrease in speed though. Sadly I feel this is a mistake from amd. Most people probably looking to go to this card probably have pcie 3 systems. So they...

    You are absolutely right that this is a thread about the 6600xt.Why the long response than? Mia being shot is explained also. I'm not a resident evil fan past 4 and code Veronica so I'm not defending it. I just found it funny that what you brought up was explained past the point you stopped...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    I'm really confused by something, if you are doing social media for your company, how you can take the stance that something is meant only for another group because only you aren't seeing an ad for it? While ignoring that many others within your age group are saying they see the ads. Isn't your...

    what is your best gpu that is just colecting dust

    Got a 3080ti and been really happy with it, so the 2080ti has kinda been collecting dust along with the 2060. For some reason I don't wanna sell them just yet, though not against selling stuff. Just don't wanna deal with the hassle of selling video cards for some reason unless it to close friends.

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Oh absolutely, I also watch streams to save money and spend money more wisely. Games costing $70 now for the current gen can be pricey as all hell. I'm old enough no to pirate anymore, but $70 is $70... it adds up. I think your point is very valid, but in this case both games are old news...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Why not watch some of the streams to see who the streamer is trying to cater too? The point Ax brought up I believe is probably valid with a small amount of streamers, but some of those streamers with 1 or 2 viewers wouldn't be aiming for an audience of kids in my opinion. It's mostly young...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Hey, those idiot parents are also the ones paying $900 to a scalper cause little Johnny wants either a PS5 or a Geforce 1660ti to play COD or Fortnight with their other 12 year old friends.

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Quite frankly Zarathustra, a LOT of adults play those exact two titles you mentioned. Even now on twitch (Which isn't the end all be all metric) there are several adult streamers playing either games to thousand of viewers. Animal Crossing itself was a huge hit because of the pandemic, and...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Yep agreed, I guess my more than wishful thought process was that Jensen would want to stick it to Lisa enough to offer Nintendo a lucrative deal they are willing to make it Cheap. Obviously that's not gonna happen, but it just would be cool to see. Nintendo has always thrived on just good...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    Interesting, we've probably been seeing different ads. But since the start, Nintendo's release videos and even current videos show not just kids but young adults as their target audience. Example: Switch Launch Advertisment Example 2 - 2021 Switch OLED advertisement Both of these show...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    I pretty much agree 100% with you here. Have a decent size group of friends on Twitch and we use a plethora of ecosystems and it's a lot of Sony + A Switch, Xbox + A Switch, or Pc + A Switch. I would say about 30% of the group of 100'ish twitch friends have one along with their other devices...

    NVIDIA Ada Lovelace to supposedly power the next Nintendo Switch

    With AMD Jaguar/Zen chips powering Sony and Xbox now for the last 2 generation of consoles, and now powering the Steam Deck, I hope this does kick Nvidia in the ass to deliver something cool for Nintendo. I personally don't care about 4k output on a "Switch Pro", but it would be nice to be able...

    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    There are tiers. And many are luxury items. That's why theres catagories such as Hedt. I think you guys might be thinking I'm saying luxury like it's a bad thing. It isn't. A lot of us indulge ourselves in the fruit of our labor rightfully so.

    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    Let's entertain your post. I find it really irrational and more emotional, but let's say you are right. I tried doing a search where 2021 more video cards were made or sold this year than any other year, and found a HUGE deluge of the opposite. Would you mind linking to where you see these...

    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    A vacuum totally can be a luxury item. A Dyson over a Hoover or a Black and Decker sure is. The purist could even argue like you mentioned that Broom is more than enough, but there's even luxury brooms. I disagree with you saying "They made it to be". I think everyone involved is part of the...

    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    It absolutely is. Any gpu that starts costing over 25% the tier below it for sub 10% the gains in performance is pure big epeen luxury. That's what being [h] is about. How is an item meant to get faster frame rates in a video game if that's what you are doing not a luxury? I do agree if a...

    Best value current gen GPU at MSRP?

    As a streamer I find the 3060ti and 3080 amazing values for the extras they give. Noise reduction and camera blur and cleaning on top of good cards speeds is great. The nvenc encoder is world's better than amds solution right now and dlss will probably always be a little better but fingers...

    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    I feel there is a lot information about the whole assembly line and cost we are missing. While price rises absolutely suck, it is a luxury item. With the chip shortage I assume volume is low and also projected sales is low. So the price raise to attempt to meet sales projections makes sense, as...

    best nvidia gpu for 1080p @ solid min 120fps in most games

    It is odd but for streaming its helpful. Having your sync set at 2x any other monitor helps with massive stuttering issues with obs. I have no idea if this even relates to the op though. Would you mind sharing what is relevant in this case about gsync? I own a few but love to more about the...

    best nvidia gpu for 1080p @ solid min 120fps in most games

    I think he might know the benefits, though it would be for the smaller range of 120 to 144. I notice a big difference between 90-110 fps at 1440p on the old 2080ti to now 165+ on the 3080ti. Even with a gsync monitor. While Gsync at variable framesrates from 60~120 probably would help, I would...

    best nvidia gpu for 1080p @ solid min 120fps in most games

    Are you planning on running ultra/high details or low for the fps details? A 2070 on low medium will probably suffice but like others mentioned the cpu upgrade is also important. There's a huge improvement in your 1% lows with a closer to current cpu from my personal experience.
