    Do you use a grounding strap, or another form of ESD control when building or working on your computer?

    Just curious what everyone’s thoughts are regarding ESD and working on their computer. I’ve always worn a grounded bracelet when working on mine, but it’s because I had one available from work. I’m not sure if I’d have even considered it if I hadn’t been made to use one there. Does anyone else...

    Rejoining World of Warcraft after a 14 year hiatus. 2020 is surreal.

    Need a new video card by next Tuesday, choices are 5700XT or 2060 Super (yuck to both), which one for WoW?

Everyone here knows I probably won’t be getting a 3080 anytime soon, so I’ve had to...

    Haven't built a rig since the i7-3770k was king, is hardware offloaded audio still a thing? I'm finding very little [H]ard evidence on the subject.

Eight years ago, all the top gaming rigs had dedicated sound cards but that no longer seems to be the case. Both my headphones and the Klipsch 2.1 setup sound great to me, but I will admit to not...
