    Watch the video before commenting?!? C'mon man, this is THE INTERNET..... ;) No I didn't, I assumed it was another amateur build where they use zip ties and elmers glue to secure things...

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    Honestly tho, we've all built like this in the past. You see these people spending an extra $100+ just on cable sleeves, longer extensions so they can tuck their runs out of the way, all in the name of keeping the PC "cooler", when in reality its just aesthetics. They want a clean case, its a...

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Right, with you on this, but what I don't get is the worry......like other posters have said "I never buy used, those things have been overclocked to hell and back". To me, I go "nice, proven track record, will you take an anonymous out of state check?" :) The thinking: These cards, even if...

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    So for those of us not following too closely, is this like Silicon degradation on the cards just like if you overclock/volt a CPU? I had my 2600k overclocked and over volted to maintain that clock for 9 years (this thing was on all the time).....over time the OC had to be backed down from 4.8...

    AMD GPU Roadmap: RDNA 3 With 5nm GPU Chiplets Coming This Year

    On the PC front I'm a little less excited, sort of more-of-the-same.....Still using an 8700k, so far so good. However, I'm more curious what this means to a 2024 (more likely than 2023) console refresh....depends on how long fab's want to keep pumping out the current chipsets for those boxes.

    Rare Apple-1 Computer Signed by Steve Wozniak Up for Auction

    The good old days of mono playback and 6 C-cell batteries that lasted roughly 3 hours. Years later we all had the same entry-level Panasonic boom box and the exact same model of Sony Walkman. Such Times....

    Starlink avail now for RVs

    I think Starlink (residential) geo-locks your location after you set it up, I saw something on The YouTubes about this.......RV'ers and people who like to VanLife were complaining. Guess Tesla heard the call to help people spend their money :)

    Samsung Display to close LCD business

    Agreed, but the headline is misleading.......I guess all this is saying is that Samsung is getting out of the non Quantum Dot LCD business (meaning no more cheap non-QD back or edge lit LCD's) , because Quantum Dot LCD's are still LCD's.....they just have an added layer on the panel that does...

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    ....right......the next track button i was referring to. I've had too many songs on a device before, particularly irritating when driving, and having to constantly hit next..next..next...then you realize you're better off making mix-tapes/playlists and suddenly you aren't carrying 80k songs...

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Still have an early touch and a Nano, but never had one of the HD models because I just never had THAT much music.....people who absolutely needed 80,000 songs freak me out, I'd spend most of the time wearing out the "Next Track" button.....but hey, you do you song-obsessed people :) iTunes to...

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Holy crap I had no idea, I thought their last revision was years ago and it was like...they offered it in teal, something like that.....the life-support upgrade as it were. Ok, guess there's a market for that thing still......thx for the info.

    NVIDIA fined USD $5.5 million for hiding how many gaming GPUs were sold to crypto miners

    Kids, remember: This is the internet, if we weren't fighting about the relevancy of dumb shit like this, we'd all just be surfing for pr0n. This is good discourse.

    NVIDIA fined USD $5.5 million for hiding how many gaming GPUs were sold to crypto miners

    No, it's on the company to honestly report their financials to their board and investors. Let's use IBM or PepsiCo, you'd want to see where their sales are coming from........but what if 60% of their market growth driving sales is in...oh I dunno....Russia? Well.....suddenly you're thankful...

    NVIDIA fined USD $5.5 million for hiding how many gaming GPUs were sold to crypto miners

    If Nvidia doesn't tell people WHO is buying their product, how would you...as an investor or potential investor.....feel comfortable buying their stock at a certain price with the hope of it turning a profit for you, or of holding onto that stock. That's what this is about. Nvidia doesn't want...

    Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in 8K Resolution With ReShade Ray Tracing Global Illumination is Absolutely Lovely

    The problem here is that nobody spent $1100-$2500 bucks to see RT in Lego games :D .......and sadly this is what will continue to make RT a "ho-hum, I'm paying a premium for a feature I will have to immediately turn off unless I want to do some kind of funky resolution scaling behind the...

    "Investing in blockchain, AI and the cloud" is the same as saying "We're investing in Computer Technology" anytime between 1977 and 1989.......................every company today is investing/investigating blockchain technology, and leveraging AI and "The Cloud"....its like this:

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    I currently run an AIO 1080 Ti and before that, an AIO 980 Ti......both of which continue to run and cool just fine. But someday........those pumps are going to fail. Whatever I get next, whenever I get it, will be air cooled. Water cooling struck me as a cool visual novelty but in the end...

    Intel finally responds to bending 12th gen Alder Lake CPUs on LGA1700 motherboards

    I guess Intel has managed to create their own Red Ring of Death a-la Xbox 360...........if you never embraced that console and only know the meme, it's because of the x-clamp retaining system that Microsoft went with that, over time, caused the PCB to warp as the console heated up and then...

    Wolfenstein 3D secrets revealed by John Romero in lengthy post-mortem chat

    Forsaken, that's the one! IMHO the Descent games came into their own when they got outta the mines/dungeons and became space flight sims but I appreciate them for their time....multiplayer was crazy, I remember that for sure. But back on point.....the best fun I ever had with Doom (because...

    GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition is NVIDIA’s first graphics card with 16-pin power connector

    Gamer's who are heavily invested in things like Triple-Screen setups or VR/Motion Rigs may opt for one of these, where those additional 10fps you get brute-forcing electrons into this thing might make your experience ever so slightly better, but for us normies...to whom this card is absolutely...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    So now its not enough to spend $1400 bucks on a GPU just to hit 60fps at 4k, now you need to spend $250 on a Kilowatt PS that will double as an Induction cook-top...............
