    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Alright so the scan lines thing is a non issue, text clarity is incredible compared to my 1440p monitor, with the default set up and local dimming turned to high with the contrast enhancer turned on this thing gets crazy bright and the FALD solution is definitely doing it's job. Some blooming in...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Wow what a weird bug man, I switched to display port, any time it goes to sleep and comes back I have to keep re-plugging in the HDMI to get it to hit 165hz 10bit. Get stuck at 120 hz and won't enable HDR otherwise with HDMI

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Just plugged in my G7, on HDMI 2 it was stuck at 120 hz, switched to HDMI 1 and I'm getting the full 165 hz 10 bit picture, I don't see it moving to 12 bit however. I can't see scanlines from my normal viewing distance but if I put my face pretty much right against the monitor I can seem some...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I'm reading there are differences between windows 10 & 11 in terms of HDR implementation (auto HDR for win 11, also fixes some issues with monitors washing out), has anyone noticed a difference with this monitor?

    Would it theoretically make any real difference? I guess if DSC is capable enough it shouldn't matter right?

    RTX 2080 Super vs. 3060Ti (OEM)

    Kind of a bummer to go from an evga card to a generic one, I'd probably still prefer the 3060 ti. I had an MSI one for a while, solid card.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I'd rather use the C2 but my desk is a built in, no shot I can fit it on there and sit comfortably. 32 inches is my sweet spot. Depends on if you want a higher refresh rate or not, I don't mind 120 as my max.

    Horizon Zero Dawn complete edition - (steam) $16.60 @GMG

    It has a fairly solid benchmark too. Game has a pretty decent story, gameplay is okay.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Do I need an HDMI 2.1 cable or is it enough to just use DP 1.4? Thinking about ordering a high quality cable but I do have some very nice display port cables.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    This is probably a valid point I just don't care haha I'm coming from a 32 inch 1440p monitor. I'll be fine with it for the next 3 years or so, by then 32 inch 4K OLED should be around.

    RTX 4080: Countdown To Second-Best™

    Guess people aren't running out to buy them, that's probably good news for consumers long term. Also, it's officially holiday season, this is the time of year they should be selling the most. So it's a recently launched product and it's holiday season... yeah.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    If you have an EDU email you can get both for pretty cheap right now - That's the price with an EDU emal. My old college email is still active, picked up the G7 for just under 700 after tax. Don't want to deal with scanlines. Now I'm slightly regretting purchasing a 6800 XT, guess I'll just have...

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    if it were 699 like the 3080 I would've taken the day off of work, drove to Cleveland, bought one, went to the national park near by, got some food, visited the city, drove home. I've driven out there to go to microcenter once it's a great little city but it's almost two hours away. However, I...

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    I'm fairly convinced online cards being sold out are mostly due to scalpers. Ebay is flooded with 4080s, hope they all have to take an L.

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    Yeah that's not really true though, Steve makes it very clear the fact that there is such a high potential for user error means it's a flawed design as well. He thinks its self to use but shouldn't be so easy for user error to occur.

    RTX 4080: Countdown To Second-Best™

    I have no doubt in my mind the 4060 will be alteast 500 dollars. MSRP of the 3060 ti was 400, clearly consumers got too nice a deal there, need to bump that one up to about 700

    RTX 4080: Countdown To Second-Best™

    "We jacked up everything to exorbitant levels so now the pricing actually makes sense!" The fact remains this card is a generational leap over the prior 80 series card and costs more like Ti or 90 level card. This card ought to be compared to the 3080, where it's roughly 50 percent faster, like...

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    If those leaks are true the 7900 XT makes absolutely no sense at all, that's a massive difference for 100 dollars. They're going to get raked over the coals in reviews for it. One good, one bad.

    Would throwing an RTX 3050 into an FX-6300 machine make any sense at all?

    Would throwing an RTX 3050 into an FX-6300 machine make any sense at all?

    Is there much of a market for used chips and boards? There's gotta be a ton of refurbished 2060s coming down the pipe. The 3050 and 60 cards are only good if you get a deal on them. Performance per dollar just isn't there for Nvidia right now.

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    The first game is basically unplayable the gameplay is so bad, but it has the best story & atmosphere of the bunch. Witcher 2 combat is pretty similar to Witcher 3, but the third game is a bit better. The game really doesn't do anything great in terms of gameplay, it's just a cool world with fun...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I'm curious how big the gameplay additions are, seems odd it would take so long to add RT support and some mods. Maybe the content and performance uplift were what took some amount of time.

    Yet another 'help me upgrade my desktop' post - GTX 970 build

    Sorry my bad it's currently OOS, i'll update you the deal returns. You'll probably see a lot of 6900 XTs and 6800 XTs on sale right now, Nvidia seems intent on not budging.

    Yet another 'help me upgrade my desktop' post - GTX 970 build

    Check out my deal post on hot deals, 6800 XT should be okay for 60 FPS at 4K as long as you aren't using RT. Faster than a 3070 by a decent margin.

    RX 6800 XT Gaming Z Trio $539.99 - $20 MIR = $519.99 + 2 Free Games @ Newegg

    Yeah it does well in synthetic benchmarks, but the card is still roughly matching a 3080 which is fine for 520 bucks. You get around 5 percent real world performance out of the tuning. I'm not sure how much this card will tune, it's already clocked pretty dang high out of the box.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Yeah I figured even if the 7900 XTX is twice as powerful I'm paying half the price, and I really only game at 1440p anyway. I'll be back once there's a 4k monitor I actually want.

    Well, just got a new RX 6800 XT for 539, two games, and 20 dollar rebate card. I'll check back in when the price on the 7900 XTX takes a major nose dive like the 6900 XT did. Link to deal

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    "Other people's money" Remind me, who uses most of societies resources again, is it the heads of large corporations or the workers? They should pay more in taxes the benefit the most, also, they're not making much without a healthy labor force.

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    Actually, forms of socialism exist all over the world, but they're not full socialist countries, publicly owned services like the NHS in Britain are an example of socialism running along side a capitalist economy. We do plenty of socialist like things in the US, but just not to the same extent...
