    Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE $35.90

    I placed my order on November 5th with a delivery date of around November 10th, if I remember correctly. They then changed my delivery date to 11/15. Then, they changed it to 11/18. Now, it's showing Nov 23-27th. If you click on the link, the 120 SE version (this one) isn't listed any more. I'm...

    Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE $35.90

    I snagged two of the Micro Center 12700K combos for builds for friends. Do you think this would do a good job? One will be in a full-sized Torrent, the other the Torrent compact. Both friends do not want AIO's, as I don't blame them with the Torrents. Also, these will be gaming-only PC's, so I...

    Micro Center Deals: 12700k combo or 7700x combo for new build?

    I just picked up the $350 12700K combo with Z690 ASUS TUF motherboard and 32GB DDR4 ($100) for a total of $450 that MC ran yesterday that sold out quickly. Today MC upped their combo discount on the 7000 series to $50, and are still offering the free 32GB DDR5 kit. So, I could get a 7700X + B650...

    HURRY - Micro Center - 12700K + ASUS TUF Z690 Combo - $350

    Ripped from Slickdeals. These are selling out fast. I was thinking of getting a 13600K soon but this is mighty tempting:,-asus-z690-plus-tuf-gaming-wifi-ddr4,-cpu-motherboard-combo

    1000 G6 or 1600 P+ for 4090?

    I have an EVGA 1000 G6 (Seasonic) I purchased about a year ago for my 3090 build. I'm in the process of piecing together a new build for a 4090 (waiting to see 13th gen Intel; i7 max) and I picked up an EVGA 1600 P+ about 2 months ago in anticipation of these 4090 monsters needing huge power...

    AMD Ryzen 7 5700x for $199 at Newegg

    There's now the Uncharted game bundle included with almost all 5000 series AMD CPU's, which makes this deal smoking hot. However, it's a bit confusing. If you go to AMD's site for this promo, it does not list Newegg for the promotion. However, on the Newegg 5700x page it lists it. The reason I...

    Should I?

    If you're a fan of Skyrim, then playing it in VR is absolutely amazing. Download Wabbajack and you can choose from a few different mod packs on there. I'm currently playing with FUS and it's great.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Now, I'm second guessing the 1600 P+. For some reason I thought the OEM was Super Flower for it. It even has that "rough" look of the G2, P2 and T2 variants. For $30 more, I can get the P2 and send back the P+ that already shipped for about $20 in postage. Is it worth the $50 swap? The plan is...

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    I pulled the trigger. $179.99 after 10% off associate code for a 1600w 80 Plus Platinum with 10 year warranty. Yes, please. Thanks OP!

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Running my 3090 on a 1000 G6. I'll probably be going 4090, and really hope my power supply will suffice. I'm very tempted to grab this, and sell my current one and only be out $100-$120 for the upgrade.

    11700K + ASUS Z590-P Prime WiFi - $270. Microcenter - In Store Only

    My friend is thinking of picking this combo up today to put in a 3U rack case for a multi-purpose server. It will run a few things in his house and he would also like to run some VM's off it etc. I don't see him pushing it very hard. With that being said, do you think this cooler would suffice...

    EVGA SuperNOVA P6, 80+ Plat 1000W - $129.99 (less w/code)

    Great price on this PSU. I thought I did good a few months ago scoring a G6 1000w for $120. This is a no-brainer.

    Oculus Quest 2

    Definitely pick up Golf+. I play that game more than any other. Plus, it's cross-play, so if you purchase it on the Quest you can also play it on the PC, if you'd like. I do that with Air Link and it looks much better.

    Microcenter: 11700k for $199.99!

    My bad. I read your whole post EXCEPT for this part "are playing at too low of a resolution and/or capped frame rate". Apologies.

    EVGA B stock GPUs on sale now! $1199 3090 FTW3

    Not when you're gaming in VR. You need a lot of headroom so you don't get slowdowns, which can mess with you and cause motion sickness. I usually target 60-70% utilization, on average, to ensure I have a smooth VR gaming experience.

    DEAD: EVGA 1600w PSU Sale (T2 $259, P2 $239)

    Gah! I just got my EVGA 1000 G6 a few months ago, in anticipation for a 4090. I should be ok...right? ;)

    Oculus Quest 2

    Those are two of my top 3 games on the Quest 2. If you love real golf, give Golf+ a shot. It's fantastic.

    HP Reverb G2

    I sold my G2 after getting a Quest 2 and using it wirelessly. After playing without a wire, I just couldn't go back. Yes, the G2 has a better screen but it's not that much better, in my opinion. Maybe if the G2 is a 10, the Quest 2 is an 8, which is fine. I've owned a CV1 Rift, Rift S, then the...

    First world problems...(to keep or sell?)

    I recently landed a new job that is going to take up ~60 hours/week of my time for the next 4-6 months, until things settle down. I have a 10850K with a 3090 that I use 90% for VR gaming (Quest 2) and sometimes a AAA game like God of War or RDR2. I'm going to have almost zero time to game until...

    Playstation VR Thread.

    After having 4 VR headsets, the last two being a Reverb G2 and a Quest 2, I can no longer use a wired headset unless I'm sim racing, which is less than 10% of my usage. I sold the G2 because I only use my Quest 2. This is with a 3090, so the G2 looked amazing but the wire just annoyed me to no...

    WD 18TB Red Pro 7200 Rpm, $251 at Amazon

    Something doesn't add up. Zepher's screenshot at the top shows the seller as Chaste. Then, the $251 deal a few hours ago had a different seller listed. Now, the seller changed again to Unbeatable Sale and the price went up to $256. This has to be a screw up on Amazon's site for a smaller drive...

    What game have you put the most time into?

    I played Asheron's Call for almost a decade (taking 2 breaks), and I don't even want to know how many hours I put into it. I've also been playing Heroes of Might and Magic 3 since it released back in 2000. If I had to guesstimate, I would say I've put at least 1000 hours into that game.

    Varjo Aero

    How do you guys feel the optics compare to the Quest 2? My story: Bought a 3090 and a Reverb G2 a year ago. Loved the visuals, but hated the mixed reality interface and controllers, and how poor the edge-to-edge clarity was. I like being able to move my eyes in the headset and still see a sharp...

    It Takes Two

    I just finished this game and let me tell you, it's a masterpiece. I don't use that word very often with gaming, and I might only give that privilege to less than 10 titles in my 30+ years of gaming. Yes, it's that good. The graphics are absolutely incredible. The gameplay is fresh, and there's...

    Two great power supply deals at Newegg (Super Flower 1300 & EVGA 1000)

    I ordered the EVGA 1000 watt yesterday, as the Super Flower 1300 wasn't on sale. Now it is. I still have time to cancel the EVGA and go with the Super Flower. I run a 10850k and 3090, and will likely go 4090 when it launches. I highly doubt the 1300 will make a difference, but just knowing I...
