    Japanese Man Marries a Hologram

    Since I dealt Anime and the Culture of Japan in the 80's and 90's I can tell you straight on how schizo the entire culture is.

    Intel Core i9-9900K Re-Reviewed, 95-Watt TDP Results

    They have been doing this for years, however when you have advertisers and manufactures in your back pocket you can get away with things.

    Much benefit upgrading video card?

    I do a used 1070 for around 240 and under that includes tax/shipping... there are a few around if you look hard enough and then save for the next series of video card. I don't recommend a 1070ti because all that is a cut down version of the 1080. It uses the same amount of wattage as a 1080...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    I agree. The 2070 performance is IMHO meh at best. As I expected to be. The price manipulation still continues and you better believe the +10%+ Nvidia tax will be on the MSRP on those cards as well. Those 2070's will hit over the 600 range easily, pretty much close to the 1080ti pricing ATM...
