    12600k 12700k already getting big price cuts.

    Amazon is higher of course, but the KF 12600 @ 281 is pretty decent. It's the Z690 mobos that are spendy right now. --Edit: 267 if we factor in that 5% back later :)

    Desktop GPU Shipments Down 16% Year on Year

    We should sell our 970's while they're still worth a decent amount. If the value goes too low, I'll just give a GPU to a relative, which would be a bit of a waste if they don't game. oh well. It stinks that we have to spend about $200 to get a card that uses less power but no better performance...

    Samsung Starts Mass Production of Industry’s First 4-Bit Consumer SSD

    HEck yeah. I'm waiting for $100 1TB SSD's because that's the size I've been used to. I did snag a 1TB MX500 for $165 on prime day. :)

    Samsung Note 9 - expected pricing is utterly ludicrous

    These boneheads don't realize that if phone financing is like cars then the $1000 phone is gonna be more like $1200 or so over time. I'd rather buy a brand new modern phone for $150-250 once every couple years. I don't even do that. I get a $100-150 Samsung that uses the Tracfone service & spend...

    More NVIDIA 1180 GPU Rumors

    I'm thinking about selling my Dual fan 970 while it can still fetch $150+. What say you? Putting in another $150-200 for a 1070/Ti would be nice. Bought it a year or so ago for $165. Not gaming alot right now so I could sell & go without a GPU for a while to wait for a good price.

    used EVGA GTX 1070 Ti @ $375

    Hmm. My GTX 970 was $160 from ebay a year or so ago. I bet I could sell it for more than that now. :rolleyes::ROFLMAO: Sell my 970 & put $200 towards a 1070 TI? decisions, decisions.

    Official Prime Day Thread

    Good to know. I'm used to 1TB HDD's. Update: I bought 2 of the 250GB MX500's at $50 & $55 for relatives, and the 1TB for $165 since it's almost exactly 1/2 the price of the 2TB sale price. I don't need more than 1TB right now to spend an extra $85+.

    Official Prime Day Thread

    I bought the $25 gift card for $5 credit to account. Also purchased the $55 + tax 250GB MX500. Somebody will enjoy it. The 2TB is a great price @ $319+tax but I don't feel like spending that much. Probably will be rare when 2TB ssd's are under $300 or 1TB for under $180.

    Darn it. $185 ain't bad but $155 or $140 would be awesome. I would've bought 2. https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX500-NAND-SATA-Internal/dp/B078C515QL That 2TB MX500 is about $180 cheaper than the Samsung or $130 under the Sandisk. :jawdrop::wideyed: $55 at checkout for the 250GB MX500 if...

    Android App Locks Your Phone If You Use It Too Much

    This gives me an idea that all phones should just disable all non-emergency functions or apps, except for google maps or similar for the driver of any vehicle while it's moving above 5-10mph.

    Honey Badger DGAF. My max is probably $400 but I don't currently game much since I'm working alot. I was a broke-ass student so got a used GTX 660 for $60. Used GTX 970 was $140. Padre spent $380 on a 6800 GT back in the day when work was aplenty. Not sure how much my 5950 Ultra was. :eek::LOL...

    GM Plans to Launch Autonomous Car Without Steering Wheel or Pedals Next Year

    It only might be cheaper for those who use Uber or such a few times a month then don't go anywhere, hmm. Obviously my $4,000 payed-off truck getting 20MPG sure is cheaper than taking a "cab" to work, for example. Someday I'll get a work vehicle that gets better mileage, but that's just a...

    Exactly. I know these are better than certain Sata SSD's but I got a 275GB Crucial MX300 for $70 late last year on Amazon. Real good price/GB. It still shits on HDD's.

    Need for Speed Payback Official Reveal Trailer

    Campaign only kinda sucks. For example Nfs The Run & new Hot Pursuit. Fun though. 2002's hot pursuit 2 has a great "arcade" deal where most of the game is just racing laps. Having the Mclaren F1 & F1 LM was badass also. "Free ride" in these new games isn't quite the same. Much fun though.

    Netflix Shares Soar On Huge Growth In Subscriber Additions

    I concur. They could do more with more. I'm glad Amazon Prime & Netflix are not $30/mo. Well, I do send $60+/mo to Amazon. I just get products for that $$. No commercials on all these shows is great. I missed that you mentioned Longmire also. 4am will do that to me. I think season 6 will be on...

    Have a single GTX 950. What Would You Do?

    I agree about that. Also, I'd say the 3gb Gtx 1060 is pretty good at $200 depending on version. It's not much worse than the 6gb gtx 1060 in most cases.

    I remember the 5850 was pretty good value also. Those 5000 series were good competition. good Bang for buck is a gtx 260 for $65 or gtx 460 for $35. lol, perhaps i wait a long time to upgrade. gtx 660 for $60 coming up.

    Looing for advice on what card to pick up.

    If prices are this close I would definitely recomend the 1070. The 1060 might turn out to be a great 1080p card but not quite fast enough for good 1440p
