    Going from 10900 to 13900 worth it?

    This is a perfect answer. I was going to have a more simplified answer. Do you need to upgrade and will the upgrade benefit you even if its 10% performance improvement? The other thought you may consider is that 10 series Intel does not support 4x NVME, a Shiny new state of the art NVME SSD...

    Ordered a 3060Ti got a 3070 instead lol

    Besides what HardOCP used to be years ago, Guru3d and their reviews is easily my favorite site. The graphics card and cpu shootout that shows the big list makes things easy to view.

    To me it looks like you made out. Although this is a different brand but the 3070 seems better than 3060ti.,33.html

    Is buying a 13900k as hard as getting the latest GPU? They are sold out everywhere?

    Is Windows 11 really bad?

    I have no issues with Ad's or anything of the sort. There are minor differences that took a bit getting used to. I find it to be stable and fast, I do not use an online account to log into the system and found it to be quite pleasant from a stability and performance perspective.

    xbox series x controller disconnecting from bluetooth on win 11 during gaming

    I used to until I started using the later versions of controller firmware. Once upgraded a lot of problems went away atleast for me.

    xbox series x controller disconnecting from bluetooth on win 11 during gaming

    I have learned the Xbox Series X even Xbox One controller is very sensitive compared to the ps5 controller when connected to the PC. Having a Blue Tooth adapter that is visible seemed to help a ton. Not sure why this is as it is not a problem on the XBOX console itself.

    Any way to force booting from PCI-e nvme card

    Unfortunately the bios wont allow. This came in with more modern mobos. You can do SATA3 all day long. I ran into this issue about 6 months ago.. Thank you,

    BIOS Updates

    I try to update the bios a few months after it is released to give it time to bake. Only thing I am not too keen on is laptop bios updates.

    Trepang 2 Inspired by F.E.A.R

    My expectations for a F.E.A.R. like game will be sky high. If the AI, Story, Action, Horror Elements are not like F.E.A.R. it should never claim to be F.E.A.R. like in anyway.

    Is Windows 11 really bad?

    Correct you can bypass the online stuff. I use local account just fine. There are new things about Win11 that drive me a little bonkers like the right click copy and paste is not as simple as it was.

    DirectStorage (PC)

    Yeah it is Win11 only. My understanding is games need to support it as well?

    Gaming in your 40s

    This is very true! When I was younger and single it was easy to purchase and update my rig often. Now it is all neat and stuff although I did get a latest and greatest but a bit late in the generation. I leveraged the savings had with discounts seen. I do wish I had more time for quality...

    Gaming in your 40s

    This... The money is nice, it is cool to say I have such a PC but it does not get utilized unless my kid uses it, even then it is not pushed to its limits unless I tweak and benchmark.

    Gaming in your 40s

    I honestly have this happen to me about every 3 or 4 years. I haven't binged any games since the start of the pandemic, I like gamed myself out on Resident Evil series. Now it is like man there is a lot I'd like to do. Although I strangely enough play/idle grind in a Roblox game.. lol

    Gaming in your 40s

    This! I game but only for a short bit of time and if a game can resume where I left off it is even better. Projects, Stuff to Learn and other things have been occupying me.

    Hard Disk detecting only after restart.

    Last time I had this problem it ended up being a bad sata cable. They seem to go bad as often as display port cables.

    Goodbye Origin - EA App is now in session

    I just get the game where the deal is the best, Steam, Origin, Epic, Gamepass whatever with modern computers its simple to have them all running with zero impact and it is easy to add short cuts to games into Steam so it is an all-in-one stop shop in the end for me atleast.
