    What is the best AntiMalware that is light on system resources and still good

    People recommend it because it works fine. See For something free that is already installed it is hard to beat. I honestly cant remember the last time I had a virus pop up from normal web browsing. The last thing Defender picked up was a file in a...

    Goldeneye 007 (Xbox One/Series X|S)

    This is exactly what I wouldn't want. I love GoldenEye. I would have replayed it numerous times by now however I cannot get over the single thumb stick for aiming and moving. I'd hope that they update it to use two joysticks or if they want to remake original controllers have an option to play...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Id argue some of the side quests are the best quests in the game. Depending on which side quests you did or did not do you may not have even had all of the options open for the ending. You could play them now. You could roll a new character with a new build and try a different style and play...

    Amazon’s New World game is bricking GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards

    Did you even read what you linked? The first article, yes EVGA said it was their fault. The second article is PowerGPU saying they expected more failures, not EVGA. And as far as I'm aware there are a bunch of Gigabyte cards having issues now. So either EVGA and Gigabyte both messed up, or...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    I have the exact same issue and have always done the exact same solution. Keep all fans at 20% minimum using Precision X1. Works like a charm. No idea why it wasn't working for you previously but I can say with certainty it works fine doing it this way. The only time you get that annoy sound is...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    That really doesn't make any sense. Why have an exclusive event at all then? Actually that brings up another point, I assume all of the normal people entering tomorrow behind the elite members now? If so they'll likely never have a chance.... I suppose at the very least this was all good...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    Super disappointing. I wasn't expecting the site to be broken for two hours and unfortunately I had stuff I had to take care of around ~10:45am when it looked like it started clearing. Was able to get back around 11:10am and get in queue (after trying about 15 times because I kept getting an...

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    Sigh. I wish I read this thread first. I remember seeing this thread when I was out and tried to sign up for Elite but was told I wasn't eligible. This morning I remembered (and was home) so I actually registered my 2080Ti and saw the 'spin the wheel' so I did. I actually got a 20% off code...

    Any one looked at Chia yet?

    Chia really wasn't an issue to get setup on linux IMO. I'm running it through SSH so no GUI. Just follow their command line guide and use '-h' for everything. Everything is documented with '-h' so it's pretty easy to figure it out. For what it's worth, I was keeping my estimated time to win...

    I've been having some fun with this. My 'homelab' is rather absurd so I have some resources to play with. I figure I'm getting into this pretty late so I'm not looking to throw money at it and I wanted to see what I can do with what I have. I have a spare MD1200 full of 2TB drives that is...

    How to securely share a broadband connection?

    I started thinking through this and ended up with the exact same thoughts/conclusions as the link Zepher posted. Double NAT and port forwarding would be the biggest issues but you can absolutely do this with just setting up some VLANs and some firewall rules to not let those VLANs communicate...

    Same here. I planned to balance this with pistol only but quickly realized I never needed to fire a shot anymore as soon as I had legendary quckhack crafting unlocked. In the end I'm glad I did it though. I wanted one play through where I cleaned up every quest/hustle/gig, and this made it...

    strange isp problem

    Had an issue with FIOS a few months back. Google failed to load 1/4 times I opened it. Twitch streams kept dying. Could not even ping Amazon or Google. Some sites like [H] were completely fine. After running a bunch of MTRs I noticed that there was a point where either my traffic took a good hop...

    Epic Games Launcher makes AMD Ryzen CPUs run hotter even without any game running

    Just did a quick test on my 5950x. On startup, temps were idling around 36-40c. With Epic opened it idled at 62c. Left it there for a minute or so, no updates were running. As soon as I closed it I was back at 39-40c. Fuck Epic. I just grab the free games in case something ever happens with...

    [DEAD]Steam Autumn Sale 2020 has started! runs from November 25 to December 1, 2020 10AM PST

    Agreed. I bought an Index for HL:Alyx. To be completely honest if I never touched my VR set again and only played through HL:Alyx once it would have been worth it to me. It's truly an amazing experience. I've spent way too much money on games this sale. I picked up a bunch of stuff on my wish...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    According to a post on reddit from someone at Asus, the only main differences between the current hero and the dark hero are: #1. Better VRM #2. Passively cooled chipset #3. Different color From what I've read/watched the VRM on the current hero is already overkill. The passive chipset cooler...

    My only fear is those are recommendations. I bit the bullet and ordered everything I wanted for my new build over the last couple of days. The only thing I need is the processor.

    Do you use a grounding strap, or another form of ESD control when building or working on your computer?

    I don't bother. My plan at home is don't work on carpet and touch unpainted metal before touching components. Hasn't failed me yet. I don't at work either, but I work in a data center that has humidity / temperature control so it isn't an issue. I haven't seen other vendors that come in to fix...

    Best air cooled case?

    Gamers Nexus has a video from July about this. I was planning on a P500A build but they went out of stock right before I was going to get one. I ordered a P600S instead which I think will work out well. My current case is a Phanteks and I like it. I like the idea that I can either run the P600S...

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    This is how I'm leaning as well. I'm waiting for benchmarks but I have a problem where I just look at what is the best and most expensive thing and buy that when it comes to PC parts. Buy once, cry once.

    Server rail confusion

    Sounds like they should work. The rails are adjustable between 18.5" to 29". As long as the distance between your front and rear posts is between that you should be fine. Worst case scenario it's Amazon, just send them back. Those very likely wouldn't work. If you look at your first eBay link...
