    I'm in WA. It seems like NE started collecting sales taxes. So, even if I got that SC, I should have paid more than 950 after tax :(

    Stupid question but gotta ask cause I don't know

    Some MOBOs do test memory (not just quick test) during boot up, so it takes some time. Thus, I would say yes; it would affect the boot time. You can disable this testing in BIOS, I believe.

    Gigabyte z270x Gaming K5 No sound via optical

    ASUS Strix Z270E question

    Without the MIMO antenna, you could get up to around 430Mbps. However, that's kinda theoretical speed. I typically expect half to a quarter of those speeds for wireless.

    Open CL

    I don't think games really need to use CL or CUDA, unless it needs intensive physics simulation.

    Anyone able to buy a video card directly from Nvidia recently? How long are they backordered?

    $899 is actually a good price for Ti. Local craigslist listings ask 1000+. :(

    OMG I snagged a video card at only 15% over MSRP!

    15% over MSRP is a really great price. I would also jump on it... but wait! I don't think I have paid anything over MSRP in my life tho. :(

    980ti vs. 1060 6gb

    I think used 980 Ti is a bit more expensive than a new 1060 6GB, and it's a bit cheaper than 1070. So we're getting we paid for?

    RAID 0 worthwhile improvements in my case?

    If you're referring the 160gb drive to ST3160811AS, I would like to recommend leaving as is. It's a really silent and small drive, access time isn't that fast. So, I'm only using the seagate drive for back ups.

    Do most gamers use with wired or wireless mice?

    Although modern wireless mice do not have much lag, stereotypical though that gaming mouse should be wired haunts me all the time. So, I'm always using wired for gaming :).

    ST31000528AS Health

    I was not able to see SMART info for external drives with Seatools. But, WD tools displayed that information surprisingly! My WD Raptor (50+ reallocated sectors) was not detected with WD tools, but Seatools was able to scan the drive :). Guess it's worth trying many tools.
