    First world problems...(to keep or sell?)

    I recently landed a new job that is going to take up ~60 hours/week of my time for the next 4-6 months, until things settle down. I have a 10850K with a 3090 that I use 90% for VR gaming (Quest 2) and sometimes a AAA game like God of War or RDR2. I'm going to have almost zero time to game until...

    I'm at a loss here...

    EDIT: I figured it out! I was just testing and turning the PC on first and quickly turning the second power supply on like 0.5 seconds later. I found a post online stating that they have to be turned on simultaneously, or the secondary PS a little before. So, I turned the Corsair on then about a...

    Second video card not showing up (3090 + 3070)

    I haven't ran dual video cards since the Voodoo2 days so bear with me. My main PC has a 3090 in it that I'm using to mine with Nicehash about 23 hours per day. A buddy of mine sold me his 3070 (since he landed his own 3090) and I figured why not, I'll throw it in my same rig and mine with 2...

    Well, that's a lot of 3080s...

    I camped outside of my local Micro Center yesterday in the freezing cold for 3 hours hoping to land a 3080. This is my first time camping. Upon opening, they received one 6800 non-XT and five 3070's. No thanks. My buddy just sent me this link to the Columbus Reddit and it looks like the same...

    How long until PS prices return to normal?

    I get that there was a shortage of power supplies months ago, and I read about how the cost to transport goods has increased with COVID due to many factors. My local Micro Center is absolutely packed with power supplies; literally hundreds upon hundreds of every make and size with the shelves...

    Is super sampling above 4k going to widen the gap between nvidia and AMD?

    I just received my new HP Reverb G2 headset, with native 4k resolution. I've been playing around with SteamVR supersampling up to 150%, and can easily notice a difference. Seeing the latest benchmarks between the 3080 and 6800 XT, the 3080 is the winner at 4k resolution. However, if we implement...

    Meshify C to larger S2 Meshify worth it for high powered GPU?

    I'm currently running a Ryzen 3600X with an AMD 5700 blower. I'm trying to get my hands on a 3080 or 6800 XT, which will use quite a bit more power and generate quite a bit more heat. I currently have the smaller Meshify C case, but see that Micro Center has its big brother on sale for $109...

    Zen 3 pricing confuses me

    Typically, with processors, the more cores you add, the more the law of diminishing returns applies with cost/performance. Not so much with these Zen 3 prices: 5600X - $299 ($50/core) 5800X - $449 ($56/core) 5900X - $549 ($46/core) 5950X - $799 ($50/core) Jumping up $150 to go from 6 cores to...

    Croteam VR Bundle: $14.99 Steam

    I know this is a part of the Steam summer sale, but I just had to post this. I feel it's my duty. I've owned VR headsets since they were released (Vive, Rift CV1, now an Oculus Rift S) and have played a ton of VR games. I almost game exclusively in VR. I can say, with the utmost certainty, that...

    New nVidia GPU - best way to secure one upon release?

    I've been loving my 1080 Ti but have been itching big-time for an upgrade. I'm sure, at release, no matter the price, nVidia is going to sell out of their GPU's. What do you think is the best way for someone to secure one? I've never purchased a video card near a release, and have always waited...

    Man, I miss power supply deals

    I stocked up on power supplies to use for builds about 18 months ago. I'm now out of them, and need to get some more. However, the current prices are crazy. I went back through my saved invoices and was shocked at how cheap I was getting them. This EVGA 750w GOLD was $30 AR, and I remember...

    Radeon VII prices...

    I have a Radeon VII that I haven't used much and am going to sell it. I just jumped onto eBay, to see how I should price it, and am shocked by what they're selling for, especially cards that don't work. In the last few days, there have been a number of "for parts or not working" that have...

    I haven't heard much lately about the release of the 4000 series processors (would like to get a 4600). I remember reading about an early 2020 release, but that was a few months ago. Has there been any updates as to when they speculate AMD is going to release the next batch? I'm itching to...

    How to ship a 7820X without original box?

    Looking to sell my 7820X on ebay but I can't, for the life of me, find the original box. I have a few empty AM4 boxes, but the 7820X is a larger chip and won't fit in the plastic tray. Any ideas of a safe way to ship it that aren't ghetto? I appreciate it.

    Fractal Fanboy - Is there anything else?

    Any AMD motherboards with Dual Link DVI onboard? SOB!!!

    My faithful 2500k system died on me, which I was using as a family room PC. This PC is used for web browsing, e-mail, you know, basic crap. I just built a new system with a 2400G using an ASRock B450M motherboard. I hooked it up to my Korean Shimian 1440p monitor and got no output. WTF. Reboot...

    Ryzen 3600X RAM: 3600 mhz CL 16 or CL 18?

    I'm putting together a 3600X system with a 1080Ti for VR gaming. I only need to buy RAM now and everything I've read says to get 3600mhz for this chip. The price difference from CL 16 to CL 18 is quite large, so is it worth it? Or, should I just get the cheaper CL 18?

    SOB! EVGA 850 G2 woes

    I purchased a used EVGA 850 G2 about a month ago (mint) and installed it in a new build. Works great. Today, the computer won't turn on. Upon pressing the power button, the MOBO lights flick on for a split second, then nothing. I hooked a little 500w EVGA BR up temporarily, and it fired right...

    5700 XT for $270 or 5700 for $240?

    My local Micro Center has a Sapphire 5700 XT open box for $270 and an XFX 5700 open box for $240. Both are blower style, and both are mint condition. This will be paired with a 2700X, hooked up to a 4k projector, but I will do a lot of 1080p gaming as well, to maintain 60 fps. I'll only run 4K...

    ASUS Prime X370-Pro or MSI Tomahawk B450? Quick please :)

    Which would you rather use for a 2700X build? Hardware Unboxed absolutely loves the Tomahawk, and there are very mixed reviews for the X370-Pro from ASUS. I doubt I will be overclocking it, and might, down the road, throw a cheap 3xxx or 4xxx series in it. Thanks!
