    Z390 VRM heatsinks $150-$200

    I usually get most of my info from youtube and google search but there isn't a lot of info for many of the Z390 mobo models. Much less about the vrm heatsink info (which I know can help keep temps down when trying to OC). in my case. I know the MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon and ASRock Z390 Taichi...

    Used Ebay 1080 TI's - buyer bewares

    ok so now the real question is, is a 680$ new GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GV-N108TGAMING OC-11GD better than getting an EVGA or MSI used for $500ish? I've seen that one have some flash sales to 680$, and seen some youtube reviews saying if you see a 1080TI dip below 700$ to grab it...

    Magical RTX Drivers

    I've seen videos on youtube and read lots of articles. those 1 in 5 articles/videos/reviews with benchmarks that recommend viewers/readers buy the RTX 2080 and admit its a tiny increase in performance from the 1080 TI seem to always say something along the lines of "we should expect to see...

    Getting the best bang for buck 1080ti

    yup i agree with you. its kind of just a personal policy. you can buy new, use it for a year or two, and sell it for 400$. i mean you could buy used at 450$ use it for 2 years and do the same thing. but again, you don't know how hardcore its been mined. since im building an expensive rig, i...

    Ok, I'm going to head to micro center today. Also, should I get an external hard drive? I read that they can be used as the main drives for SFF builds. If so, which one/what size? Or should I just stick with getting an external hard drive as a back up, just like some portable 500 gig one?
