    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    Even though the prices are still crazy high, it is nice to see that the EVGA B-stock did not sell out of video cards. https://www.evga.com/products/ProductList.aspx?type=8 I still see 1080 TIs and 2080 TIs that were listed there yesterday. EVGA 1080 TIs are listed for 629$. Ebay is selling...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    I can't image how much it hurts for the 2080 TI users, but I have to agree. They will just have to eat the cost if they are thinking about upgrading to the 30 series. However, if they can wait, the 2080 TI still has plenty of life in it. Perhaps they can wait till the next generation.

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    Ouch, insult to injury. Well, hope you get some enjoyment today out of it =). It is encouraging to see that forum prices for video cards are going down though. 5700 XT was posted in the 300s. Good trend. Hopefully, the downward spiral will continue!

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    Looking back at the poster's original question: Something that I have also kept in mind is, how much do I actually game? In the past, it was more frequent, but now that I have a family, I game once a week or every other week, so my return of investment is lower then others. If I was gaming every...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    I am thinking twice now about looking for a 3070 / 6800 XT and just waiting for the next generation :LOL:

    Nice deal for a 3070!

    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    This is encouraging. I know the rest of the new egg shuffle is inflated but this is the first time I have seen a shuffle this close to MSRP.

    Bad parts in great games.

    When I was 6, the NES Lone Ranger sometimes would grind my gears. You would think a guy was behind a wall or something and some how you would die by getting hit by a bad guy shooting through a corner.

    I am a late comer to Elder Scrolls online. Never played a Skyrim game or any of the Elder scrolls line. Was enjoyable.

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    On my gaming system, I just purchased a 1070 GTX. I am hoping this will hold me over till the newer cards hit MSRP...in a couple of years =).

    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    Great news is, prices are coming down. Feb 2021 you were spending about 700$ - 900$ on a 1080 TI. Now they are starting to hit the $400 on Ebay. October 2020 I bought a 1080 TI for 315$. We are getting back to that level.

    I had my time lugging around 20" + CRT monitors....No need for come backs for me =).

    I don't mean to necro this thread but I don't believe I saw this last post. Love the picture. Miss the days of lugging around CRT monitors :LOL:

    Battlefield 2042

    I was a late comer to BF4. Might be nice to actually get in on the action when this is released.

    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

    Thank you for pointing this out. I never really played the Splinter cell series. May have to get it a go. **Adds to games to play when my kids go to college** :LOL:

    RE 8 -Thoughts?

    I was looking through the pages and didn't see it......Then I saw it was in the subforum. I appreciate the pointer. I will take a dive in that thread, but appreciate everyone's input so far.

    RE 8 -Thoughts?

    I have heard also that it is best to play RE 7. However, the continuity side of me would want to start at the beginning =). That is a big commitment when you have kids =).

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Escape from Takarov is another game I have thought about getting into. However, similar to other comments, I have heard it was torture. Not sure if I want to suffer after a days worth of work =).

    RE 8 -Thoughts?

    For those that have played RE8, would you recommend it for someone that has not gotten into it? Also, would you recommend playing the earlier titles first?

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I am probably behind the curve, but a friend and I just started playing Homeworld series last weekend. Good times. As an RTS player, still trying to get the hang of the 3D space combat =).

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    Some good memories from UT. One of the LAN parties I attended was sponsored by DFI Motherboards (When they use to make gaming motherboards), AMD, Intel, ATI (before AMD bought them) and Nvidia (among other sponsors). If I remember right, there was one guy that cleaned up every UT tournament...

    New Egg is a ripoff

    I am also a bit annoyed at the combo deals, but I think your argument may not be completely sound. Flashlights during a blackout is essential in many regards. High end video card is neither essential or necessary. I just checked and they do sell $3.99 flashlights. However, if those prices go up...

    Nvidia shortage to last most of 2021

    It is interesting how things have changed. From a sales perspective, this would be a stellar year for them. Husband: "Honey, I won the new egg Shuffle!" Wife:"Great! What did you win?" Husband: "Sit down for this one.....I get the chance to buy a video card" WIfe:".......Great......"

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    In indianapolis indiana, we had some pretty large Lan Parties. In high school , my personal lan parties started as 5-10 people. However, as it progressed, my parents actually moved all the furniture out of the house into the garage and we hosted (if memory serves me right) around 40 people. We...

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    And how traumatizing it was to lay your head down on the sofa cushion that had been sat on for 24 hours :LOL:

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    Hahhaha, I laughed at this. Perhaps there should be a Hard Forum Lan party in the future..... =)

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    It use to be for the low latency and network performance, now you can get that where ever you are as long as you have broad band. However, you can never replace gaming in the same room as other people and the fun that is had with that. =)

    Lol, they will do what they can to get a sale =). Still running it on a 9900K. However, it is huge.

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    Its true. Long gone are the days where we all had to drag our full towers and CRT monitors across town to get a decent ping =). Believe it or not, this is the first time I have heard of a FGC. I will have to look into that.
