    How to Acquire a NEW Generation Card Step by Step GUIDE!!

    Glad to hear some people got the BestBuy drop I didn’t get anything this week but I was late AF. I have gotten cards from their drops. I always use the email verification it seems like the best way to me. I had a 3080 FE all the way to payment screen and then no delivery option. Then they...

    How to Acquire a NEW Generation Card Step by Step GUIDE!!

    Well guys I am sad to report that if you didn't get a card in time before the tariff you might as well skip it this generation because now the retailers are scalping cards. Really sucks I am seeing 3070's selling for 800 now on Newegg I mean really...

    Cyberpunk 2077 for $26.69

    I did this it was easy and no risk because it's GOG so literally the only game I have on that platform. I paid $27 I mean it's a deal period.

    How to Acquire a NEW Generation Card Step by Step GUIDE!!

    Good to see success stories. I have scored a few times from Newegg and most recently Best Buy. It's 100% Possible. It's been really slow lately like crazy slow. I think everyone is digesting the tariff news. Plus BTC is insane as well ETH so talk about making it tough. Here is my haul so...

    Will RTX 3090 stock get better?

    I hope mining moves away from cards I heard that they will but I don't think that's the case for ETH. I think the 3090 stock is about to get pretty out of hand. I follow all those discord channels and that card is always getting dropped. Nobody is buying them and they are in for a rude...

    It seems ASUS have increased their MSRP of their 3000 series

    I have never had issues with Asus but you have to call and get a hold of the rma department directly. They will take care of you if you get to the actual department but it's a huge pia. I only run Asus motherboards. I will say Best Buy had not changed any prices except the Strix today but...

    Finally some success stories BestBuy was a huge drop if you were on Discord I imagine you got a card today for a good price. I bet we see some 2080 and 2070 cards come up for sale lol. Cheers to everyone that got a card today I hope this thread has been helpful.

    If you subscribe to the Discord channels they also do PS5 (which are super easy to get) and they will notify you. You don't have to do anything but just be sitting at your computer and the alert comes in you hit the link and add to cart. The Video Cards are not easy the PS5 and Xbox are easy...

    So I been running my 10850K at 5200Mhz for weeks,Am I going to degrade CPU

    I haven't ever killed a CPU or maybe the upgrade cycle is to consistent. I'm always at least one comp in the new gen. Slowly rotating out older hardware but it hasn't caught up to me yet. I have killed a lot of memory though. And a few Video Cards.

    So I been running my 10850K at 5200Mhz for weeks,Am I going to degrade CPU

    The other side of this is you "should" be using the variable voltage so you really wouldn't be putting that kind of voltage on the chip unless it's under full load. Which is pretty much when you are benching. Maybe CyberPunk but most games and programs don't tax the CPU like that so that tech...

    How did you purchase your Nvidia 3xxx series card? Owners vote only please.

    Picked up a 3080 at MC in Tustin, CA went in on a midweek day around noon and they just got a truck and decided to sell the cards. They had a lot of 3080's that day I had choices. This was last week. I also got lucky on Newegg Wishlist method which I wrote an entire thread about how to cop...

    Man I think these 3090's are such a bad buy I'm starting to see all these guys on the forums trying to sell these cards for like 2200 and none of them are moving.

    B&H has been dropping 3070's most of the day albeit Zotac and PNY but there have been a couple MSI cards and Asus a lot of guys got them off of StockDrops Discord notifications. I actually picked up a 3070 MSI Trio after I posted this. So you can get cards with this method I wasn’t even trying...

    How to Acquire a NEW Generation Card Step by Step GUIDE!!

    Did you end up going to your MicroCenter? Did they have any 3090’s. I imagine this card is going to be overstock soon and prices are going to crash a bit on this card. The discord channels announce 3090’s all day.

    Feed 3080 with separate 8-pin inputs from PSU?

    Yeah I should have started by looking up the PSu to see if it was a single 12v rail derp. lol

    Feed 3080 with separate 8-pin inputs from PSU?

    Just look up single 12volt rail PSU issues. Funny, this isn't something you hear about much until you get a new incredibly power hungry card like these and then you have to make sure the rails are split evenly or you will get these issues that you are talking about. The cure for these types of...

    You can get cards but a positive attitude and a little work is all it takes. Im not sure what else I can do to help because in all honesty a lot of the comments are so negative and deflating and I just keep reporting about successful purchases. Anyway Merry Christmas.

    Hey guys I’m going to elaborate on the guide but basically Newegg drops are every evening between 4:00pm and 5pm PST in half hour increments. I have gotten a card on 2 out of 3 drops a 6900xt both times (the only card I really wanted). I have also picked up an EVGA 3080 FTW3 just walking into...

    Just don't buy from scalpers is all it's about guys. If you "have" to have a card then this is about the only way. I will say I went to Microcenter this morning in Tustin, CA it was so terribly unorganized they just let everyone run up and grab vouchers instead of giving them to the people...

    Evga advanced rma, any experiences on the warranty after? Or possible to keep as secondary?

    I mean in light of transparency this isn’t exactly ethical if your intent is to keep both cards. The loop hole seems to be getting another card and keeping the other one it makes sense but it’s a bit shady lol. No offense of course. I would like a card as well or 2 or 3 lol. EVGA is a great...

    Does [H] need to be (yet another) avenue for scalpers to profit?

    I started a thread in the Video Card section about the same thing. I just think as a trader who has been [H] for over a decade and done lots of trades it’s a shame. But it’s a shame three fold. First on the manufactures for releasing cards they clearly know they can’t supply, second on the...
