    Is there a good strategy to getting a 6700xt?

    Sapphire 6700XT at MC Madison Heights Mi, for only $749! Even they are marking these up. Sad times. "I remember when mid range cards were $250-350". Chip shortage lasting into next year, yeah this is going to be rough on our hobby. :(

    GPU Prices dropping?

    Let me get this straight. World wide chip shortage, Nvidia can't keep up with the most demand on its current 3000 series it has ever seen in GPU history. Normally releases a new Series 18-24 months later but some one you think they are going to release a 4000 series this year? After only 12...

    Battlefield 2042

    BF4 was a turd when it launched. People forgot it took almost a year of patching to get right. I came back when they did all the patching and it was a lot more fun. Didn't realize BC2 was for the consoles, just loved the story and most fun I had gameplay wise other than the original 1942...

    Loved Witcher books and Netflix show. Witcher 3 game, not so much. Sounds like it isn't your game. Which it is or it isn't. I got bored with it myself and moved on. You sound like you're in the same boat.

    Taiwan drought could drastically cutback TSMC production

    Arizona has been trying to get a pipeline to the Great Lakes for years. After living there, this is a dumb thing to do. First, more Cali expats moved there and planted lawns instead of the...

    Love Lace no time soon That's with in 2 months of launch! That was not including the whole tally of gamers that were able to get the cards. That's the highest demand yet, stripping supply hard. No one could keep up with that kind...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Yeah blown away by Madison Heights having everyone of them in stock. Also, limited stock, but there, on Gigabyte 3070s. This MC has been getting regular drops of 6800XT's to boot. Can't believe the amount of 5000 series that dropped though. So tempting. I am going to end up biting on my...

    Why did SLI and CrossFire die off?

    All these long winded comments of why. Developers are lazy period. We have 6+ cpu cores that don't get fully utilized in any game. Even games like Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator which would benefit from all that extra CPU power are underutilized, lazy programming. Consoles just make it even...

    Ryzen 5 5600X At Microcenter $299

    Yes they are actually in stock and MC here in Madison Heights Mi, does a very good job on stock reporting. I check the other day when Red Devil 6800, Reference 6800XT and 6900XT dropped. 2 hours later gone. Same with the rather large drop of 3080's they had. It was I think like 10 or...

    AMD is Allegedly Preparing Navi 31 GPU with Dual 80 CU Chiplet Design

    If this were true, then AMD wouldn't be breaking Revenue records. And it's not just consoles. Like Nvidia, everything they make is sold. You think they are going to supply joe schmo over Origin, Dell, and other major PC builder companies? Besides, 6800 are available at Microcenter daily now...

    Do I hate Epic LESS then Origin?!?

    My 3900X would go from 35C idle to 55C soon as I launched it. Waited till I read here about a fix before I launched it again. That was a strange one indeed.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Graphics cards were gone instantly. Good to see them getting larger orders for CPU's though. This is how to get past scalpers, send to brick and mortar.

    LG Unveils Its 1st QNED Mini LED TV with Up to 2500 Dimming Zones

    I don't know how my 65" E6 does it but if I walk away for a few minutes, the screen goes black with a little fireworks going off in different parts of the screen. Some kind of screen saver I guess. I can't find it in the settings as this use to be my mother's TV.

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 461.09 WHQL Drivers

    This last driver doesn't allow anything above 4:2:0 chroma at 8 bits on my 65"E6 LG OLED. No selection, all greyed out. Going to grab this one now.

    MC BABY!! LOOK AT THAT STOCK! I have only seen 5 or 6 AMD any 6000 series in at all at this Madison Heights location. They get more Nvidia stock every other day. Amazon could stop the scalpers, they just don't care. If either card developer cared as much as they say, they would allocate stock...

    Horizon Zero Dawn is the best one I played lately and replayed twice. Play story mode first time through. Love the story and concept earth 1000 years later. Great visuals too. You will like it.

    How to spot a horrible review from a top YT'r

    I use to watch golf to help put me to sleep. Now I just turn on Digital Jesus and am knocked out within five minutes. Jayz is for entertainment and some informational things. Phil makes the cuts funny. I have never considered him bias either. He just did his all AMD systems for himself and...

    Epson Home Cinema 5050UB vs BenQ HT3550 Projector

    Oh and either way, purchase from Bestbuy or a store near you and get their replacement warranty. Epson sends out refurbs as replacement. I actually received a worse replacement than the one I sent back from them. BenQ on the other hand sent me a new 3050 when I had to send that unit back.

    Epson Home Cinema 5050UB vs BenQ HT3550 Projector

    Sorry didn't see this before. 5050 gaming response has reported below 28ms input lag vs. BenQ 3550 at 58-66ms depending on the reviewer. DLP has actual pixel shifted 8.3 million pixels and IS sharper. The DLP .47 chip shifts 4x the 1920x1080 chip to get its 8 million plus pixels. This .47...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    Wasn't a question at all. Made it very clear in my post. It was one or the other. Now there is a list of crap wrong with this game from everyone on here that verifies my bad purchase. From side quests not being tracked, enemies not being auto marked by raven, to bad AI just being bad, to...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    When is the next patch going to drop and are they going to fix any of these issues you guys mentioned? Every issue you have posted here I have had issue with and the game has NO "FUN" feeling. I went back and tried WoW on the free weekend and it was boring after an hour. I have the same...

    Horizon: Zero Dawn coming to PC

    I liked RDR2, but still haven't finished it. HZD though, my goodness. The story sucked me in. I am back questing now and probably and headed towards playing again at top level New Game +. RDR2 has pulled me into it like this one did.

    You know.... I thought I wanted a 3080. But. If AMD comes through with stock...

    Oscar I couldn't agree more. I love AMD getting back in the race but they fell short at their price range. Now $499 for 6800 and $599 for the XT and this horse is in the race. Fidelity FX should have been ready launch day for 6800. But lack of hardware RT, tensor cores, and software support...

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    I am having even more fun going back and doing side quests after doing the main quest line. I think I wandered off Frozen Wilds as I notice TallNecks weren't hacked in certain areas. Wandered off to do that. This game is beautiful and fun. Are we going to have to wait another 3 years after...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    I think it's a big deal as that's part of the original AC games. That's what had me confused when I started yesterday. WTH is the purpose. I don't even use it right now in the starting area. I wanted to spot enemies like it use to. No treasure marking or wild animal markings either? Get...

    Yeah at least finish the story line. That was one of the better ones in a mp game. Plus it would be the modern version that everyone wants.

    Who are you in GPU? Please. Thank you!

    I know, life decisions right? I just had 2 tendons repaired in my foot/ankle. Way I look at it, we fix ourselves now. By Feb/March when we're been back to work, all the Radeon 6000 series and 5900/5950X Zen3's will probably be in plentiful stock. Plus Radeon drivers will have matured for...
