    $199 Totaltech Paywall Helps Scalper Snag 20+ GPUs From Best Buy

    As if the paywall itself wasn't bad enough for the consumer... 'Totaltech did more to help than anything else,' wrote one scalper, who bought the GPUs after Best Buy decided to place the products behind an expensive membership paywall.

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    Pretty sure Nvidea doesn't care if you can get a card or not. They are selling everything they have in stock at a killing. You can't get one? Oh well. Sub to Geforce now. It's a win-win for them.

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    I didn't think it was a war either, but it does clearly show how no matter the lines that get drawn around people, we're all the same and deal with the same issues.....we all want our video cards, and at a reasonable price!

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    Sorry to hear that...I'll pray for you. ;) I don't want to follow your post too far down the rabbit hole (after all, we are off topic), but as a follower of Christ who has experienced the super-natural I figured I'd give my 2 cents on your post. I still don't see the link between Christians and...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    https://www.pcworld.com/article/539183/windows-11-review-an-unnecessary-replacement-for-windows-10.html The fact that the only way to have a local account is to buy PRO will probably be the deal breaker for me. I'll be using 10 as long as it continues working.....then eventually make the move...

    Windows 10 BSOD after Windows 7 upgrade, please help

    PC mover is for transferring your files, programs, and most settings to a new rig. If theres no new PC, dont bother with it. If you have a system image, most (if not all) of the imaging programs allow you to mount the image like an external drive, and you can copy your files out of it once you...

    Windows 10 BSOD after Windows 7 upgrade, please help

    Again, I reccomend a clean install, not the upgrade option. The only transfer program I've ever tried was Laplink PC mover ultimate...and I only tried it once. It worked fine for all the files, and 90% of the programs. Many programs worked fine; the program, registry entries, activation, etc...

    Windows 10 BSOD after Windows 7 upgrade, please help

    Your best scenario is make sure windows 10 activated, then do a full system image (if you have to roll back to 7 to do this, do it) if you don't have a recent backup. Use the latest windows 10 media creation tool to make an install usb drive, format the drive and do a clean install. It takes a...

    How to virtualize Church Service

    FB live works. A quick and dirty setup can be done straight from a phone on a tripod, but a bit better setup would be a digital camcorder feeding the video to a computer, with the mic jack fed from the soundboard. The camcorder/mic into a computer would also work for youtube .....a free...

    Is microsoft still giving free win 10 upgrade from Win 8 / win 7 after Dec. 31, 2017?

    The latest media creation tool works. Make the media, and install....skip putting in a key and it asks what version you want to install (and if you don't want an account tied to a microsoft account, unplug it from the internet during install). I did it a week ago.
