    X570 or X670E

    Take a look at the Asus Proart X670E, it meets your pricerange and has USB4 and 10Gb ethernet. So it seems pretty future proof.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I wouldn't, but then there people queuing up at night to get one. And in the words of the BOFH "the only thing you should be queuing for at midnight is a kebab."

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    As I'm trying to max out 4k@120hz, I think I'll wait a bit and see how the partner cards do. Also interested in how much of a difference there is down to the 4080 and the not so 4080. I'm getting the custom loop itch again (haven't build one since socket 939 and gtx 7800), so in the end I might...

    M.2 issue

    From Asus's tech spec, in the notes section: *2 M.2_2 and M.2_3 support 44-Lane CPU (Intel® Core™ i7 9000 X-Series CPU and above). So I read that as there aren't enough pcie lanes on the 7 series.

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    The following is purely based on information from Steve's latest video. While the PSU business was 20% of the revenue, it made almost 50% of the profits. So yes, a whole lot of people will lose their jobs and a massive amount of knowledge is leaving. But they'll carry on making a product line...

    Worst Game Ever?

    Ohh Galaxies brings back memories and not the fond kind. I got into the beta and was all ready and fired up. But was so empty and had zero sense of direction. It felt like a cardboard cutout or a generic bland mmorpg with Star Wars theme music.

    LG 48CX

    Nice, just be careful with the handling. I had the wife helping, and one of her rings left a light 10" scratch in the screen coating.

    What Game or Series would you like to see brought back to Life this Year?

    + 1 for Deus Ex and Halflife. Max Payne - but Max deserves to stay retired, so I'm not sure how they should proceed.

    Direct X 12 Ultimate

    Without googling it, wasn't it just a detour from the decimal naming scheme? Also I believe that it requires raytracing capable hardware.

    Fittings for G1/2 and G3/8

    I'm trying to build a small test setup with an old Asetek pump I retired alongside a X58 system. The pump uses push-in fittings and I'm having trouble with minor leaks. Who are making G1/2 and G3/8 treaded soft tubing fittings these days?

    Best option for adding 2nd HDMI port w/ 3090

    I've used a passive DP to HDMI with my VIVE without issue. I don't think there are any VR systems that require HDMI 2.1 at the moment. Some have moved to DP - HP reverb v2 uses it now...

    AMD Ryzen 3000 and Older Zen Chips Don't Support SAM Due to Hardware Limitation, Intel Chips Since Haswell Support it

    Stability and overclocking - what do you consider stable

    Many moons ago I spent time with Prime testing, but when I got my current rig (Haswell-E) I had a hard time getting it stable - I remember something about avx loads... It turned out that prime isn't a stability indicator for my usage - gaming and browsing. So getting to the point - is it stable...
