    How did you purchase your Nvidia 3xxx series card? Owners vote only please.

    Frys is hurting bad. I doubt they will make it another year. It’s a ghost town.

    How did you purchase your Nvidia 3xxx series card? Owners vote only please.

    They want the local traffic. I’ve seen good drops (many 3080, 3070, and handful of 3090) and dry drops (just a handful of 3090). That’s the best chances I’ve seen.

    Note: The MC website will not accurately reflect their stock. The morning line is for vouchers which will guarantee you can but a specific GPU by 3PM. They also carry additional stock for in store purchase, but you have to ask.

    How did you purchase your Nvidia 3xxx series card? Owners vote only please.

    It’s possible to get a 3070, 3080, or 3090 at ”retail”. Some retailers do not get cards directly from the OEM (or so I’ve heard). They have to pay about %10 extra. I had a friend get me an EVGA 3090 for just a little over MSRP. Still way better than from the scalpers. This place had 12 EVGA 3090...

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    I have a 2080 Ti FE. Bought at announcement and waited like everyone else during the delayed release. I've had game issues that seem to affect other users. 1) Deus Ex: HR - There is an "office" area in one of the expansions that causes a game crash with minutes every time I was in certain...

    The Natural Outcome Of The Encryption Wars In The U.S.

    I love the legalese in that document you posted. Look at page 2 lines 14-15. For any evidence extracted from that device wouldn't Apple have to disclose how it lowered the operating systems' defenses to allow an unlimited number of unlock attempts? Wouldn't the defense team ask for an...

    The Natural Outcome Of The Encryption Wars In The U.S.

    LOL... Apple just refused to unlock the phone and extract the data? Apple doesn't have a tool that can unlock that phone. IIRC, Apple hasn't claimed that creating such a tool is impossible. If you have proof post it. If you have any linkbait that states that Apple already has a custom image that...

    The Apple cables will fray at the end. At least that's how every busted cable I've seen ends up. Try Anker. The business ends are much more stiff and hopefully less prone to fraying.

    Windows 10: Your thoughts so far?

    Unfortunately, many people don't maintain their computer. I see MS's point and I don't think they had to go this far. That said, I've learned to love the bomb, I mean automatic updates.

    Installing Windows 10 - Upgrade vs Clean Install

    I did an upgrade over Win 8.1 Pro. My programs, AFAIK, are fine. I also didn't want to reinstall my stuff. As for your printer, time to shoot that thing, or bite the bullet.

    Fury X vs. Titan X benchmark

    This definitely use to be true for ATI. I recall back in the 9700/9500 days, I could definitely see a difference, and I always preferred ATI. Both companies were fooling around with optimizations, and still are of course. I preferred what ATI was doing over whatever the hell nVidia was doing. I...

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    I think of these scenarios: 1. nVidia could really hurt AMD by lowering the price of the 980/980ti. AMD would have to follow suit. nVidia can withstand lower prices. I don't think AMD can. 2. But why should nVidia lower prices when the 980ti (not sure about the 980) are more desirable than...

    Abused miners, yes...lol. If you're lightly gaming, I suggest a 680 GTX. I'm about to replace mine with a used 980, but I'm not looking for top performance.

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    Who is saying that? I'm tired of the driver excuses. Excuses are like my cornhole, nothing good comes from it. If AMD releases magical drivers months from now then the card should be re-reviewed.

    America's ISPs Suck, And AT&T Sucks Worst

    I'm stuck on uverse... while TWC offers 200 Mbit internet, Uverse is stuck at 18Mbit. I've looked at bundles and they are comparable. 200 Mbit vs 18 Mbit. Let that sink in. AT&T has a "contract" with the complex manager that assures only AT&T is allowed to service our complex.

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    But I have I used products from this company even before it was this company. It's funny that ATI can be bought out by another company and still retain it's allegedly bad qualities. People here continuously make the same driver excuse for AMD, but now they can't use the "it's cheaper" excuse.

    FS: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 X58 Mobo & i7 920

    I had this CPU/MOBO/(similar corsair RAM) before my friend did. I eventually upgraded to Ivy Bridge and sold my gear to a friend for pretty cheap at the time. Let me recall how much I asked for.

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    I'm tired of the drivers excuse. [H] has to review the card as it is, not as it could be in 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. It's not like AMD just got cards to use. They've had cards for many months. They've had plenty of time to work on drivers. Unless it's a really small team which would be a shame.

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    BF4 is shocking. I've read too many reviews, so I can't recall where this reported, but in some reviews it's just an ass kicking. I don't understand how this didn't raise a red flag.
