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

    Remember when round IDE cables showed up? So much easier to work with!

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Still using a touch screen nano, it’s in my garage plugged into an old Altec 2.1 setup. Love that it’s got an FM tuner. Apple sent it to me as a replacement for an earlier version that was recalled(?)... don’t remember the details.

    Auctioneer puts Space Shuttle CPUs under the hammer

    This. I think these run at 1.4MHz and have a megabyte of memory. But they sure are cool!

    Fastest Current Single Slot Video Card?

    Maybe get a PCI-E riser card to free up access to the other slot?

    Intel opens new Fab, moved up 18A process.

    I think that’s why he said “more chip production”.

    How to turn OFF Asus Video Card over clocking and set to the regular speed?

    You have no idea what you’re doing. Leave it alone. The card automatically and dynamically lowers the GPU and VRAM clockspeeds when you’re not gaming. You’re achieving nothing by messing with it.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    Yeah, come on how is anyone supposed to distinguish between 5800X and 5800X3D... those designations look completely identical! /s ... as if that was really necessary

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

    LOL yes, I'm sure that the reason that 1920x1080 is the top resolution BY FAR is because people are using Steam as a chat platform and not because that's what they game at. 6/10 of the most popular cards are **60 and only 3/10 are **50 (plus 1/10 **70) so I think it's pretty safe to say that...

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

    Plenty being almost 70% of single monitor steam users.... I don't see it going away any time soon.

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Where is the name calling? Didn’t see anything in your quote of his post that could be considered offensive.

    Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda Thinks Games Shouldn't Be Fun

    Gamer for 40+ years (Jesus I’m old!) and also completely unfamiliar with the FF series. Too many games and too little time to check out something that doesn’t interest me.

    TSMC Production Costs Set To Rise

    Gross. 20% increase in manufacturing cost usually results in a more significant increase in retail. Unless of course if the manufacturers absorb the increase... bwahahahahahaha

    Nvidia 1070 ti

    But mining isn’t the only factor at play. You think that’s what’s driving the shortages in the automobile manufacturing? Demand for wafers is high all around. ETH going down isn’t going to immediately make cards available. But hey, if the OP is cool with riding it out for however long it takes-...

    Nvidia 1070 ti

    There is no guarantee that is going to happen. And, with all the shortages in the electronics industry, I expect things to stay this way for quite a while. What’s it worth to be able to game for the next six months? Is it worth paying a premium? It was for me- I bit the bullet and paid a bit...

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    Why would they? As long as they are selling as fast as they can make them, manufacturers are getting their $$$. It’s shitty but that’s how it is.

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    I don’t think any legit Canadian retailers even have listings for the AMD cards so that’s not a surprise. Any of the ones listed probably came from the USA.

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    Except that they are available- there are dozens available just not from the normal channels. Any one of us could buy one right now if we were willing to pay the scalper tax. I’m not, but lots of people are and as long as people keep paying the inflated prices, the scalpers will continue to...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again (Dec 10th now)

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Finally lucked out and was able to score an Aorus Elite X570 and a 3600 from a local store. Kind of settled for the 3600 as it seems like at this point it’s a take what you can get situation even though I really wanted a 5600.

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    It’s not just video cards.... I decided to finally build a new system and finding anything is tough... all the decent motherboards are OOS, CPUs, RAM. I’ve never seen it like this before. Stores are running out of shit to sell.

    Patch Tuesday is tomorrow. Get your system locked down.

    Actually, what he advocates is don't update immediately, wait to see if there are issues being reported, then update if there aren't. Basically let other people be the guinea pigs. It's a valid strategy although not for every user or every situation and the site is targeted at single users not...

    IRS quietly deletes guideline that Fortnite virtual currency must be reported on tax returns

    But Fortnite items and currency are virtual. You can use actual money to buy in game currency to get items but you can’t do the reverse- there’s no way to sell/trade skins or items that I’m aware of.

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Watched both episodes, not bad, I’m looking forward to the next one. Just typical fluffy entertainment as far as I’m concerned- I don’t see all this other bs you guys are arguing about.

    RTX2060 or GTX1660Ti?

    That was my first reaction too just seemed weird that they would be priced the same if the RTX is superior. I’m also wondering about the quality of the Gigabyte versus the Asus- my only experience with Gigabyte was a motherboard years ago that didn’t last while I’ve always found my Asus boards...

    RTX2060 or GTX1660Ti?

    Both these cards are available at the same price. Gaming at 1080p, which do you suggest? Why? Gigabyte RTX2060 Windforce OC versus Asus ROG Strix GTX1660Ti Advanced Edition Thanks
