    2080Ti died...what to replace with?

    So my 2080Ti died. I need to replace it. Thinking of an EVGA 3080 12GB Hydro Copper. Willing to entertain better uses of my money. Card MUST either come blocked or have aftermarket block support. Yes, I know, terrible time for it to happen. I play 4k on an LG CX, so HDMI 2.1 support is a must.

    First HT

    My first HT. Nothing too special. Sub is an old KSW15 that's served my family well since 2000. Pair of Heresy II's circa 2003, and an RP-450C that I just picked up on sale at Crutchfield. Budget AVR until all the HDMI2.1 pass through stuff ia figured out, so went with the Yamaha RX-V4A. I have...

    Drops this Thursday, 23SEP 1100 Eastern. Who's stoked?! Turns out, your save file from D2L will transfer over for SSF play, which is pretty sweet for those that have characters that they've been playing for the last 20 years(my dad is on of those people). I decided to take Friday off to...

    EKWB preparing TEC equipped cpu block

    So, kind of a news item. Not much information to go on at this point. We do know it's able to keep a cherry-picked 10900K 5.4GHz all core @54°C. Linus has a little bit of the scoop.

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    Just a bit over 3 hours until sales go live. Where is everyone planning to F5 at? I'm gonna give it a go at the EVGA store. If no joy there, going to Best Buy. I guess if neither of them have availability to purchase at 0900, that will be the end of it until next round.

    Replacing 38" ultrawide. Suggestions?

    So I sold my desktop last year because I was traveling so much. I bought a laptop with a 1080p 244Hz IPS panel, and it's juicy. For the first time, yesterday, I plugged up to my monitor that I didn't sell, an Acer XR382CQK. It's a 38" ultrawide 3840x1600 75Hz with very limited free sync range...

    Any word on if there will be new boards/chipsets for the new processors? Im thinking about a x570 MEG, but if there will be new chipsets/boards, I'm not even going to bother starting research.

    Where's the GPU's at?! E-GPU question

    Was looking to add an egpu to my Blade w/ 2070 Max-Q for when I'm not on the road, to drive my 3840x1600 monitor. Well, seems a 2080Ti can't be found. Have they been discontinued due to impending release of new products, or is it COVID related? With that being said, after the 4x penalty from...

    Editing PM's

    When the forums changed over to the new software a couple years ago, I brought it to El Chingon's attention that we were able to edit sent PM's. Obviously, this is an issue when discussing details on trades/sales, he agreed, and removed that ability. It seems that this has recently returned. Can...

    Comms headset for use with speakers?

    I game with speakers, and that's not gonna change. Back in the day, I used the headset I got with SOCOM 2 to handle Vent/TS duties while playing BF1942 and used speakers for the game audio. So, what is out there for me? I don't want a piece of crap, and would love something wireless. RGB is ok...

    Well, mostly new build. Replacing motherboard, CPU, RAM, and monoblock. My 6600K @4.5 has just been starting to feel a bit long in the tooth, so decided for a change. I didn't want to wait till Zen2 parts to drop, so for now decided for a 2600X. I should be able to recoup some cash when the...

    Blizzcon 2018

    Whelp, opening stuff has happened. I was really hoping for some juicy Diablo news. Diablo news there was: Switch port which has been known for a while. Then there was the utter garbage of a "full blown" MMOARPG for mobile. I'm disgusted. Anything exciting/disappointing for y'all?

    I just want a new GPU...

    ...that isn't "old" and still above MSRP from launch. This shit is completely ridiculous. I've never had a problem finding a thing I want to spend money on. I just refuse to spend nearly $800 on a 1080ti. Would love to have an AMD card because my monitor is FreeSync, but I guess a Vega64 is not...
