    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    4E D&D session for a homebrew campaign that started in Feb 2010. I write all my content on the PC in my sig so I hope that counts as "PC gaming". :-)

    FF VII Remake Combat

    After watching some videos and knowing that I can switch back and forth when not in combat, I'm just going to try them and see what's comfortable.

    Anyone here collect classic/vintage PC games?

    Oh man, I had some serious hours in Archon, M.U.L.E, and Mail Order Monsters. My reaction to the EA logo was a lot different back then. lol

    Anyone here collect classic/vintage PC games?

    Got the white C64C, 1541, 1802 monitor for Christmas 1986. Bard's Tale was the first game I finished on it. I was 14 years old. Man, things were a lot simpler back then.

    FF VII Remake Combat

    I bought FF7 on release day for the PS1 back in 1997. Had a lot of hours in the game and my memory card died. Progress lost and I didn't have it in me at the time to start over. So now we have the Remake. Played the demo, bought the game, and just did the free upgrade to the PS5 version. I was...

    X570 USB Issues: Keep or Exchange for Intel

    I did see the good news this past week about AMD supposedly fixing the issue with a forthcoming AGESA update. I still haven't built my new rig yet. With this recent Microsoft Exchange zero-day issue, I've worked a lot of extra hours the last ten days and have just been out of gas when I'm not...

    X570 USB Issues: Keep or Exchange for Intel

    Why would you guess that? I never mentioned PCIe 4.0 and it was not a major deciding factor in my purchasing decision. Intel will get there. Yeah, that would be ideal. But not realistic. Storage, RAM, video card coming over from my 3700x box that I need for remote work. And days off are all but...

    A Plague Tale Innocence

    I played it at 1440 with everything cranked on my 2070 S and it was fine. I love this game. A lot of people shit on the gameplay but the graphics, story, music, all comes together really well.

    X570 USB Issues: Keep or Exchange for Intel

    My return window for my MSI MEG Unify X570 board ended today. I arranged my work schedule so I could make the 35 minute drive to Micro Center. And I didn't go. Going to keep what I have and deal with any issues that arise (if any). Hoping the snag an RX6800 and/or 3080 soon so I can lock this...

    X570 USB Issues: Keep or Exchange for Intel

    Greetings, [H]. I know there's probably not a right or wrong answer here but seeking some input nonetheless. I have a MSI X570 Unify and a Ryzen 9 5900x. Haven't opened them and can return/exchange both at Micro Center. Motherboard needs to be done by Tuesday because their return policy is 15...

    Microcenter has 5900x

    Still all the 5xxx CPUs available at the Cincinnati, OH Micro Center. I was able to get a 5900X yesterday. I have a 3700X so maybe not a huge increase in performance but I'm pretty excited about it anyway.

    EVGA Step Up to 3XXX card

    I've seen people claim they've completed their step-up after 3 or more months in the queue. I queued first week of January so I'm hoping to step up from my 3060 ti to a 3080 in April/May. Who knows though. I'm fortunate to live within an hour of two Micro Center's and they get 3xxx stock in...

    I desperately need help. I have no idea what's going on here...

    Nice job, [H] community with the troubleshooting assist. I was going to ask the OP his proximity to the Bermuda Triangle or a Native American burial ground. Probably not helpful but it looked like we were running out of options. Glad the issue was resolved.

    Which would you choose? 3090 FE vs. EVGA 3090 FTW3

    I'd go FE so I could comfortably build in the Cooler Master NR200. I know the EVGA fits but it's tight and the fan arrangement on the FE is a better match. And I love that case so all this is all IMHO.

    How many games have you refunded?

    One. Cyberpunk. Not because I was bitter or angry about it's release state. Just decided I would buy it when/if I ever get my EVGA 3080 step-up. I still have the Witcher 3 in my backlog. PLENTY to keep me busy.

    ASUS officially increases graphics cards and motherboards pricing

    EVGA 3080 FTW3 Ultra up to $879 from $809. My step up cost breakdown still shows $809 though. Frankly if they bump me up to $879 I better get like 3.5 FTWs or I'm calling someone at the Pentagon.

    Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 in 2021

    I've been using a Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 as my daily driver for longer than I can remember. I bought a couple years ago at Walmart when they were on clearance for $15. My last one is still working but is disgusting. It has survived numerous bouts of rage but will ultimately get retired...

    Cyberpunk is Available - Lets share how your GPU/CPU is performing

    Appreciate the thread. I refunded. Will re-buy when I step-up to a 3080 in a few months. I imagine the game will be in a much better state by then. Not sure how prevalent the corrupt save game file issue was but that's a deal breaker for me. It's so rare that I get time to game anymore that...

    Immortals Fenyx Rising Ubisoft

    I bought it on that same deal yesterday. Installed and ran through the somewhat lengthy-ish intro stuff and ran around a few minutes before I called it a night. Installing a new monitor and video card today and am looking forward to spending more time with it. It ran at a pretty solid 60FPS on...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Local Micro Center showed 3070s and 3080s in stock Saturday morning. I threw my unopened 3060 ti and receipt in the car and made the 40 minute drive. Figured I would return what I had and get what I actually wanted. When I got there, people were queued up like it was fucking Disney World and it...

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    I got to Micro Center 30 minutes before they opened this morning. They had 35-40 cards...3060s, 3070s, and some 6900XTs. Big group already lined up. I ended up with an EVGA 3060 ti. The 2070S has to go.

    I Bought an RTX 3060 Ti Today!

    I was at Micro Center yesterday mid-afternoon returning a few items I'd picked up last weekend. They had the MSI Gaming Trio and I was tempted. A little bump over my 2070S which I could have probably sold making it a cheap "upgrade". But I've been doing this so long....just didn't have it in me...

    Clean Slate

    I sold my 6700k/1080 rig to a close friend a few months ago to drive his VR rig. I replaced that with 6600/1050ti Dell Optiplex. I also had a PS4 Pro, and XB1 X, and a Switch patched into a 65" Samsung 4k HDR set with VRR. A few weeks ago, all of those things were cooked during a nasty storm...
