    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...

    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...

    Node 304 meets Mountain Mods

    There is really nothing special about this build but I really like it as it is my first new PC in 3 years.
