    First Time Real Speaker Set Up - Wireless Conversion Help

    No way around it, you're gonna need dedicated amplification with an AV receiver likely being your easiest solution.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    I don't recall but I assume my past self registered for 3080 and 3090 model notifications as well so I'm probably already in those queues. Doesn't seem like the step up would do me any good.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Wait, are you saying I can step this 3070 up to a 3080 or even a 3090? All of a sudden I'm feeling decidedly less Jesus-like....

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Curious then, if you have experience with both the good and bad, why was your initial reaction to warn against deeds you yourself have undertaken with success? Your words implied the only possible result was having kindness taken advantage of, which is not representative of your own experience.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Aha! Perhaps there is an unlucky gamer chap in this very thread who despite vigorous effort has not yet procured a RTX card? If there is such an individual whom a quorum can vouch for, willing to solemnly swear on scout's honor it won't flipped, and has a lot of trade feedback please step forth!

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    I see this world has jaded you my friend. Fear not for me as I am excellent judge of character. I once was able to identify a stranger's profession as a doctor despite he being off duty solely by the angle of his eyebrows. In the off chance I'm unable to find such a humble and deserving gamer it...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Perish the thought. Being GPU Jesus I'm confident I can spot sin as easily as a cheeto stain on a plain white T. Of course I would only sell to the most deserving (aka most ass kissing).

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Man I just got (another) EVGA Product Availability Update Notification, this time for a RTX 3070 FTW. At some point in the past I must've registered to be notified on several different GPU models because a few weeks back I received a notice for a EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3, which is now sitting...

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    Imagine my surprise yesterday when out of the blue I got notification for EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING, 08G-P5-3755-KR, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate, which I had completely forgotten about. It came out to 627.45 USD altogether so I figured why not? Crazy thing is...

    Is Windows 10 20H2 the worst windows yet?

    I have a Win 10 primary desktop, multiple MacOS laptops, and a server running Linux in my home. I recently swapped my desktop's Win 10 LTSB for Win 10 Pro in order to play Cyberpunk 2077 and I'm honestly surprised at how crappy this operating system is, especially since I had no complaints with...

    looking to upgrade unibiqiti AC PRO access points.

    Both the previous AC Pro and the AC HD are set to VHT20 for 2.8 and VHT40 on 5 GHz. The AC PRO is still on my network (just moved to the basement) so I'm not just recalling the settings from memory. AFAIK it's as much an apples-to-apples comparison as one can get.

    looking to upgrade unibiqiti AC PRO access points.

    I actually just replaced an AC PRO with a HD earlier this week. As a drop in replacement, my wireless speeds have gone from ~200 to 350 mbps out of a 500 mbps internet connection.

    WTB: Windows 10 LTSC Product Key

    I would make a lot of sense. I was previously running LTSB via VL but it expired (likely due to the VL expiring now that I think about it)

    WTB: Windows 10 LTSC Product Key

    Thanks, I ended up installing Win 10 Pro (this whole adventure was to play Cyberpunk 2077) but I may try reinstalling LTSC now that I have a key. Sent you payment.

    WTB: Windows 10 LTSC Product Key

    Will you take 20 USD for the product key? I can either try the product key out and send you the payment if it takes, or I can send you the money first and you refund me if it doesn't work. I"m assuming there's a way for both of us to unambiguously know if it worked or not. Thoughts?

    New Ubiquiti setup at home

    Not to hijack your thread but I also have a similar question and I'm interested in your experience. How's your setup treating you? I'm currently using a Netgear R7000 all-in-one, which is connected to the AT&T provided router. I have about 120 Mbps down and up. I'm thinking about upgrading to...

    Blizzard Responds to Diablo: Immortal Backlash

    The one that just had your mom as the centerfold. I believe the issue was titled, “Gamer Grrls or Whores for Loot Boxes? An Inside Look”. It’s full of hot, spicy takes.

    Blizzard Responds to Diablo: Immortal Backlash

    Blizzard sees this game as an AND - you can play Diablo 3 on the PC and you can now get your Diablo fix on mobile as well. Neckbeards with an entitlement complex blew it all out of proportion.

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    It just RGB lighting under the keys, and you can cycle through various preset colors. There’s apparently software that might(?) let you customize colors but I really don’t use the RGB feature at all.

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I’ve owned Witcher 3 for a few years now and I’ve struggled to reach 30 hours. It’s a good game that seemingly ticks all the boxes but at the same time feels very cookie-cutter and soul-less. I find myself playing the game out of a sense of obligation (maybe sunk cost fallacy), and guilt (almost...

    Cryptocurrency Teaches Novices Hard Life Lessons About Investing

    No one can tell the future, but some of us have better trading/investing/speculating judgement than others. Just because you can't tell your ass from your head doesn't mean others haven't made a lot of money in crypto (and will continue to do so).
