    Should have told him you were FighterAce124 .
  2. Ur_Mom Status Quo is No Mo

    It really sucks, but you're right. Reviews are never going to be the same. From both stances. Removing the MSRP comparison (from current offerings to past ones, or each other) is a big one. I usually go for the best bang for my buck. I have no real brand loyalty. So, this is going to be a bit...

    What's a computer?

    "Where is it saved?" Look it up. Find the answer yourself. What research have you already done to find them? If none, I'll be back in 30 minutes. If you still haven't found the answer, I'll help. Help yourself first. That's what I told my kids when they were little. They started modding...

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    It's irrelevant to my point. It could be anything. Concert tickets, dildos, whatever. Just doing what you can to control the supply so you're the only one that is selling it. I find those that sell the Tickle Me Elmo's and similar hot items just as bad. Buying for the sole purpose of selling...

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    It's not the scalping that I have a problem with. I'm all for reselling. I'm not for manipulating the supply and price gouging. If they are buying the stock of things and controlling the price on the market, I'm out. High demand and then some groups control the supply and control the pricing...

    New OLED Nintendo Switch dropping October 8th

    I bought a Switch a few months ago. I knew a newer one was coming out. Glad I didn't wait. I use mine docked for the majority of gaming. When I do play it portable, I don't care much about the difference in screens. However, if I were to be buying one brand new right now (well, October), I'd get...

    Facebook announces ads in Oculus Headset

    Not a shocker. Once Facebook bought Oculus, we all knew it would happen. I was leery of buying one because of Facebook. Now, there's absolutely no way I'm buying one. Vive is now my option, which is great. Facebook basically said "buy our competitors product". This move made that decision for...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    I'd hate that. Can't install with physical media. Can't install downloaded apps. Can't make a simple program and run it on your own PC. Can't install anything offline. It just puts a lot of limitations on things (basically a really closed iOS style OS). More secure, more stable? I'd say yes...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    You can move the start button to the left. It's just default in the center. More customization that I like. It's still an early build, so it'll have a lot of updates to make it better. I have it installed on a VM and it works just fine. It's Windows 10 but prettier. Don't know why it's such a...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    Love/Hate it. I like the rounded corners, center icons, etc.. However, I like other versions of Windows for their simplicity, their function over form, etc.. I like eye candy in my OS (Vista, Aero Glass), but the artsy look over the functional look just bugs me. Sometimes, I like the raw...

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    For which part? Waiting for 4000 series or waiting for 3080 prices to come down? :)

    How Many CPU Cores Do You Need For Great PC Gaming?

    Pussy. :D Yea, I'm still gaming at 1080p and 60fps is a nice goal. Still rocking the old GTX1070 (which broke, then came back to life...). I'm happy with how things are, but they could be better. It's not a disconnect from reality. A lot of us got that attitude from the old days of...

    How Many CPU Cores Do You Need For Great PC Gaming?

    This is [H]. 16/32. MINIMUM. 64GB RAM, 12GB VRAM minimum. We don't fuck around. There is no overkill. 6 or 8 core? Newb. I'm still on 4/8, but need to move up. Not in any big rush as I need a GPU upgrade (so, realistically looking to a 3-4 year wait on that upgrade...). By the time I do get...

    New RTX 3080ti rumors surface: 12GB of GDDR6X, April - mid May Release

    My 1070 died. I can't even find a 1000 series, much less a couple year old RTX 2000 series or 3000 without going 3x MSRP at least. I'm borrowing my sons 2060 right now. Screw scalpers. They do have people by the balls, but I refuse to play. I'm waiting to replace mine. I'm very lucky to have...

    Missed Out on GME, but have a drawer full DDR3? No worries. DDR3 Prices to Soar 40-50% in 2021!

    I just threw out so much DDR, DDR2, DDR3 RAM. Trying to clean up all my old shit. Sat around for a long time with no use. So, just chucked it. Along with MB's, CPU's, old video cards, tons of cables, a few cases.... I was becoming a hoarder. Now, I just have my systems I use and that's it.

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    From RTX to Tickle Me Elmo to knock off Gucci. The reason that market exists is because of people willing to pay inflated prices. Buy up the stock to lower the supply while demand is high and sell it back to them. If people didn't buy from scalpers, the supply would remain low until they had so...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s first major update coming in the next 10 days

    Reminds me of the old 8/16 bit games. The 16 bit arcade games were great on the 16 bit consoles. The 8 bit? Not so much. Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast we all great on the Genesis. Not so much on the Master System. You get a lower quality game on the lower end...

    Linus Torvalds On The Importance Of ECC RAM, Calls Out Intel's "Bad Policies" Over ECC

    He has a pretty wide reach, though. He is definitely a very cranky fuck and always has been. He's kind of a dick all the time. But, he can get a lot of people riled up.

    Linus Torvalds On The Importance Of ECC RAM, Calls Out Intel's "Bad Policies" Over ECC

    Sometimes it takes someone with a higher profile and larger reach than just a lot of enthusiasts complaining about it. Maybe it will finally be addressed by manufacturers.

    Can i reset my IP to becoming a new user to sites that have blocked my devices, and IP without them ever getting wise?

    They wouldn't ban by IP. I get a new IP every so often. If they banned by IP, there'd be a LOT of people not able to log in. DHCP is still pretty big online. I could reboot my router and get a new IP.

    Is overclocking FINALLY dead?

    For me, the gains aren't really that great. Even if I could go from 4.5 to 5.0+, what would I gain? I have no software that really would have a noticeable effect. The hardware is still not as great to overclock (don't get the % that we used to), it's still fun to do just to see if you can and...

    STALKER 2 In-Engine Gameplay Teaser Shows Off a Gorgeous and Dynamic World

    Needs to be much longer to get me excited. I loved the STALKER series so far and this looks good, but it's a very short and underwhelming "teaser" (if you can call it that). At best, it's just teasing the STALKER name, rather than any graphics or so-called gameplay. I'm glad it's coming out, but...

    KFC Announces New Gaming Division

    If I lose, I lose. I'll eat a dozen tacos... Of course, I'm not going to win no matter what. Might as well be eating some good food while I do it. KFC can wait. It's good, but not right away kind of thing. Tacos from a nice taco truck? Fuck the game, I'm eating tacos.

    PS5 And Xbox Series X Scalpers Are Charging A Big Premium

    Scalpers scalp because people pay them. Stop paying them. Stop buying from anyone other than a legit seller at MSRP or below. I won't buy a new console from anyone other than an authorized retailer. Warranty, etc. would be legit. I don't trust others that may have swapped consoles, etc.. Used...

    Your (Apple) Computer Isn't Yours

    Windows has gone a bit overboard on it's data collection at times, and they've backed off on some of it. Microsoft really did take Windows 10 and make it very active when it comes to communicating back to Microsoft. Usage patterns, BSOD's, etc.. It's supposedly to make the product better, and it...

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    I said that the last couple times. I think it's hit the chopping block for me. Content is getting worse, I watch more Hulu now than anything. Netflix was my go-to for a long time. Huge library, great originals. Past couple years, though, I just can't defend them as the best anymore. Too many...

    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    I got promoted to a sys admin before this hit. I was in the office remoting into servers and stuff and had a lot less interaction with people. After COVID and working from home, it was almost no interaction. I took a job as a bartender when things started back up. I love it. I'm an introvert...

    How Fast is SpaceX's Satellite Internet? Beta Tests Show it Hitting Up to 60 Mbps

    For a satellite internet service, I'm very impressed. Even without having the full Gb speeds, it's pretty darn good. Latency looks very acceptable for many things. If it was sustainable and reliable, I'd be down for it. If I move out to the woods eventually, I'll need something like this. I'll...

    Just got my first projector - Is this decent?

    I just bought an Optoma UHD30. It has it's pros and cons. I bought it after checking out a review. So, I'm focused on the little things that I probably wouldn't have noticed before. I know there are other issues with it, and that's why I'm following your advice. It's great for my little room and...

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 Revival

    Heretic and Hexen were fucking amazing. I'd love to see those have a comeback. That, and Rise of the Triad. I had the Matrox m3D for my first 3D experience with Unreal. It was unreal. Just blew me away. Never wanted 3Dfx over the TNT series because it only did 16 bit color (or 24? I can't...

    Intel's new Core i9-10900K already pushed to 7.7GHz across all cores

    I find all these extreme overclocks impressive. Definitely not real world and probably not too stable at those speeds. Still, pretty nice to see it! Still waiting for something like that to be common place, though, and not considered "extreme" overclocking. It should be obtainable by water...

    Crysis remastered could be announced soon on new CryEngine tech

    Not a fan of remakes, but I really loved Crysis 1. This will be more like Crysis 1 2.0 (regardless of the engine itself, it's the game revision, not the engine revision). Should be great. The first release was very good graphically, and I look forward to seeing what they bring to this release. I...

    PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller Reveal

    I ended up buying some third party controllers to match the offset Xbox controller for my PS. I prefer it more than the standard PS layout. At least since the PS3. Before that, it was all PS. Once you get used to something, that's what you prefer for the most part. I'm best at PC as that's my...

    AMD raytracing techdemo

    Because they are still working on it and wanted to show that they are capable of doing it. I seriously doubt they were just trying to be honest in where they were in their implementation and saying they aren't there yet. This is probably the best they can do. NVIDIA is going to be on top for a...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Just matters of scale. 20 years ago, 300GB was huge. Now, it's a lot but nothing to really get alarmed about for the most part. In 20 years, it'll be extremely trivial. Go back 20 years. 30 MB would be considered somewhat similar. Now, it's just trivial and if you saw someone do a 30 MB transfer...

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Best guess. Accuracy doesn't matter. It's a goal, it's not a defined plan with a set completion date. But, they aren't trying to predict it with accuracy. It's just what they think they can accomplish with what they think they know. I wouldn't bet on it. If it happens, great. If not, oh well...

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Good. I hope they do. Get back into the game and come back strong. They've been knocked down before by AMD and came back strong. Real strong. I'm all for it. A little skeptical, but if they can pull it off, great. It'll be nice to see them back to innovating and adding a lot more performance...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    I love it so far. Yea, I'm a bit retarded... :) I don't mind slow, as there are a lot of slow paced shows and movies that I really love. It's got a different feel than other Star Trek shows, but it still really reminds of me of why I love Star Trek. And I'm starting to watch TNG series just...
