    HP Reverb G2

    I was able to compare my G2 to my cousin's Quest 2 over the weekend. We both notice the G2's slightly better resolution. They both have similar sweet spots. The Quest 2 is wireless and has gesture control. The Quest 2 is a very good VR headset especially at the 128gb's price point. I just don't...

    Battlefield 2042

    Cancel my preorder but I've got EA Play so I jumped on yesterday and played for an hour. What a mess this game is. I was in the hover craft and started on the US side hit one of the snow peaks on the snow map and my hovercraft went flying. I flew all the way to the bottom of the map and killed a...

    $600 conundrum, 1080ti vs 3060

    If you're on top of things you can get a 3060/3060Ti at a reasonable deal. Picked up a Zotac Twin Edge OC 3060Ti from Amazon for my son. He's upgrading from a 1080Ti and it was a noticeable upgrade. I got the 3060Ti for $400 after taxes- brand new. I was shocked myself. The 1080Ti has served us...

    Battlefield 2042

    Not a fan of the specialist system. Just cancel my pre-order. Feels like DICE/EA is trying to hard to be another COD or Apex Legends clone. I'm staying away from this game for now. Will wait till it hits the bargain bin.

    so i finally won a newegg shuffle but lolz at the msrp

    I was lucky enough to get my 3080 from NewEgg back in November of 2020. Got it in a bundle with a shitty Asrock mobo. Was able to send the mobo back for a refund. Now and days NewEgg will not allow partial returns of any bundles- must return the whole bundle. Newegg is now own by some Chinese...

    Dedicated sound card or onboard sound

    Currently using an ASUS STXII with upgraded OpAmps for my desktop. I use a SoundBlaster X3 with my gaming laptop on the go. I've always been a proponent of soundcards. I was pleasantly surprised by the X3 for it's price point. I ordered a Sennheiser GSX1000 to compare to the X3 and hands down...

    Battlefield 2042

    I put a few hours in and I personally feel like the beta map is too big. Feels like I'm playing a running simulator. Can't find any enemies and just running around looking for someone to shoot. Game looks great but I didn't have any fun. I had some high expectations but left kind of...

    300-400 dollars budget x570 or x570s mainboard advice..

    I highly suggest the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. My son's been on the Master for the last year and it's a very stable motherboard. He started off with a 3700X and upgraded to the 5900X running a 3060Ti. No issues and very good VRM's.

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    I made the jump to VR this year. I got myself the HP Reverb G2 and would highly recommended it if you have a beefy PC. The G2 uses inside-out tracking so if you're planning to play alot of FPS shooters then this may not be the best. But I mainly use it for MS Fight Simulator 2020, Asseto Corsa...

    Damn for this price I almost want to jump on this since I have a PS5. But I already have it on PC and have not touch it since a week after launch. Good price.

    Thinking about 8700k -> 5900x

    If all your doing is gaming then no need for an upgrade right now. I would wait till the next gen of CPU's are released. If your into content creation then a 5900x would be a great upgrade. I was on a 3700k for 8 years till I upgraded to a 9900K a couple years ago.

    Herman Miller Aeron - $669

    I've been using an Aeron chair for the last 7 years and love mines. I bought my son a Steelcase Leap V2. I prefer the Aeron over the Leap. I also upgraded my wheels to rollerblade casters and Enginnered Now headrest.

    Asus RTX 2080ti physical damage

    What is your backup GPU?

    Currently running EVGA RTX 3080 FTW but I have on reserve an Asus RTX 2080ti Strix and Asus 1080ti Strix. Need to sell the backups but just been too lazy. If I decide to sell the backups then there's an MSI GTX 680 Lightning waiting in the wings should something happen to the 3080.
  27. K is scalping RTX cards

    Speaking of Microcenter looks like they just raised the prices of their 5900X and 5950X by $100 over MSRP.
  28. K is scalping RTX cards

    This is starting to become the norm now and days. Microcenter is even starting to scalp cards and processors. They recently bump the price of the 5600x form $299 to $349. I bought a 5700xt from Microcenter back in February for my son and paid $680 since I couldn't get him a 3070. I checked...

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    Confirmed working on Gigabyte Z390 Xtreme (latest F9j bios) with 9900K and RTX 3080. Nvidia is adding confusion to this by stating only 11th and 10th gen Intel CPU's are supported. But I can confirm it's working with 9th gen Intel CPU's.

    HP Reverb G2

    I'm really liking the G2. I had a few issues with the tracking- during HF Alyx when reaching back to grab a fresh mag to reload my pistol a couple times it didn't register and I had no new clip. On the second try it worked but it was some tense moments when you've got a zombie in front of you...

    Ebay Fraud Help

    Totally agree with this. You should be working with the seller to get to the bottom of this and not blaming each other. Present the seller with your evidence- pictures of the packing, tracking label, pictures of the parts received, etc.. The seller looks legit and looks like an Ebay storefront...

    HP Reverb G2

    All I can say is WOW my mind was blown. I couldn't believe the graphics, then level of immersion, the sense of scale. Gotta give props to the Valve developers for Half Life Alyx. It's a no brainer at $35 if you have a VR headset. I was willing to pay full price for it. I spent must of the time...

    HP Reverb G2

    Just pulled the trigger on a G2 from HP. Schedule for delivery on Thursday. I'll try Alyx with just the G2 and see how I like the tracking before spending more money on the Index and base stations. I'm excited it will be my first experience with VR.

    What's the current best value for mid speed 120/140mm case fans

    I've heard nothing but good things about the Artic P12's PWM. Amazon recently had the 5 pack for sale at $31. I missed out on it -normally around $40-$45 . It's probably one of the best value case fans out there.
