    Its only problem is its line in mic. Its sound is awesome but weak line input. Kind of ongoing problem with Creative. I have AE-9 but also looked at asus STX II 7.1. Also looked at Nu 7.1. Stuck with Creative. Each has drawbacks. I have edifier 760d speakers so its least good speaker...

    Anyone snag a 3090 today?

    Gonna wait for 3080ti with 20gb coming in Jan 2021 hopefully better stock. They are predicting 1000 bucks (1600 bucks in Canada) seems it will be sweet spot for price. Only difference is less ram and no nvlink. Rest is identical.

    Guess the price of 24GB RTX 3090 FE

    Totally agree 10gb is joke considering 1080ti has 11gb so really need 20gb card but problem its too close to 3090 hence cancelled it. Need to meet the demand for cards that are out now. Still want to get 3090 since 20gb 3080 is done. Hopefully by next year supply will be there.

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    I just want to see stock available. Give me time to look at AMD offerings. Just total let down that so few of 3080 and 3090. I wanted 3080 with 20gb not going to happen. So I ride my 1080ti Sli EVGAs till I can replace them. Skipped 2080ti with all its probblems and decided to wait for 3000...

    Jensen Huang: Ampere shortages to last throughout the end of 2020

    Kyle Bennett is sorely missed would love to hear his opinion on Nvidia. My opinion going to wait a save up for second refresh of 3000 series. Have two 1080tis and skipped 2000s series. Definitely want 20gb minumum per card. Dont like 10gb 3080 its not enough for future games for speed.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    They are short changing stock to raise prices. Only big sellers got cards mostly United States. Seems always under estimate demand. Being in Canada was really no stock most retailer here say back order. Id rather wait for 20 gig version of 3080 or wait little longer for second gen. Possible...

    For the 96% who failed to get a 3080

    Done by design. Nvidia nade sure lack of 3080's to make demand for ot so they can raise prices. Oldest trick in the book. I can wait a bit. Sure next year supply will catch up.

    RTX 3080 20GB Confirmed by Gigabyte?

    I am not surprised since 10gb is laughing stock considering my 1080ti has 11gb. 20gb would be sweet spot.

    Only reason for 3090 is future proofing with more ram or wait till 3080ti version in future.

    Acer Predator X38 impressions (broken IPS)

    Problem is you cant have SDR and HD both high end. At this stage should be able to get both. Problem is technology hasnt evolved where we can have both. Only thing is greed of panel makers. No real interest in dominating to have gravy train keep going. I want both with good text and HD...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I am sure this one will cost more than 2080 ti launch price. Nvidia no dummy either be same or more in price. Fact card will be in short supply at launch.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Here is my two cents. HDR will probabily get alot better on computer lcds further down the road. For me I am saving for LG for now until HDR improves standard for HDR and SDR. Each seems have advantages and disadvantages until technology gets better (for now will be trade offs). Also comes...
