    Poll: Upgrade to Windows 11 in 4Q 2021?

    Pulled the trigger and upgraded to 11 on my new 5600x build, no issues whatsoever. I do miss quick launch on the taskbar but I'm fine with the other UI changes.

    Thoughts on the ASUS 27" VG279QL1A?

    Building my first desktop rig in many years, looking at displays and the ASUS TUF Gaming 27" VG279QL1A 1080p is at the top of my short list. I'm going to be stuck at 1080p for awhile because of the current GPU crisis. 27-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS gaming monitor with ultrafast 165Hz...

    Skyrim Anniversary Edition

    If you play modded Skyrim SE, back up your executable and .ESM now, and disable updates in Steam because 11/11 is coming and will break your experience as your SSE on steam will automatically become SAE. Me, I'm trying to get my new PC built before 11/11 hits so I can install SE before I get...

    I beta tested every early Windows release through 3.11 for Workgroups and the inital version of NT. I kinda miss getting boxes of 3.5" floppies from MS. Ahh, the good old days.

    I love Asus's Flashback on the boards that have it. Stick the bin on a USB stick, insert, press a button.

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    WTF, my NewEgg wish list has a 5600x from ANTonline for $310 cause NewEgg themselves is out of stock. Keeping up with this madness is insane.

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    5600X are slightly above MSRP lately at $310, I've had one in my wish list to finish my new build just waiting on pay day at the first of the month. Sucks that I already bought an AM4 board but I did get a good price on it, NIB, here.

    $100-$150 DAC/AMP Options

    I was just reading a review of the E10K and the gentleman recommended the headphone impedance level to be between 16 and 150 Ω. I'm now thinking of spending a bit more and going with a Schiit Modi/Magni combo, these are in stock and don't have the long lead times of their two "gaming" DAC/amps.

    $100-$150 DAC/AMP Options

    Looking at some budget options to drive 250-ohm DT 990 Pros, usage will be mostly gaming and TV/movies. The motherboard I'm using in my new build has some pretty crappy audio from what I can tell, ASUS TUF Gaming B550 Plus uses the Realtek S1200A codec (without additional amps). A Schitt...

    Real shitty times. AMD 5600X and 5800X CPUs appear to be sold out at major US online stores except for 3rd party dealers with shit reputation. $420 for a 5800X from China.

    WTF? 5600X now $300

    Son of a.. the 5600X was $269 when I added it to my wish list a few days ago. Now it is suddenly $300 at NewEgg. It is still $272 at Amazon (for now) but I really wanted to use NewEgg's Quad Pay on this new build. $394 for the 5800x which is likely the better value now. I'll also have to...

    I need to build a 5600x system, MB & Ram advice

    I'm also going to be running 32GB of Patriot Viper Elite DDR4-4000 because I got a good deal on it. Though $160 doesn't seem to be too bad for this RAM. https://www.newegg.com/patriot-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820225284

    I need to build a 5600x system, MB & Ram advice

    FWIW, I'm going with the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming (WiFi 6) board for my 5600X build. It is currently $195 at NewEgg. After spending countless hours reading reviews, it seems to be the best bang for the buck at the moment.
