    Further Big Price Cut on AM5 at Newegg, Amazon, B&H Photo, and probably others 7950x @ $550-$555 and 7900x @ $474

    it's funny. . . that card was panned for the whole available memory issue. I still used mine in my main gaming rig until about march this year. Just turn down the detail and everything ran fine. Only reason I really needed to upgrade was for VR / 4k resolutions. If a person is on 1080p they...

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    4080 pricing is just madness. I don't care how big a leap it is over the previous gen. That pricing tells us how they're going to price the entry level garbage that can barely keep up with 1080p, and it ain't pretty. If you thought the 3050 was a horrible deal just wait until we see the 4050.

    they cancelled those obviously because they can just use those chips for the higher priced skus. It’s just that simple. It was pretty obvious after a couple months that they had no intention of ever producing those SKUs again.

    Starfield

    I backed Star Citizen in like 2014 or whenever, and finally decided to try the alpha last month. I was pleasantly surprised to be honest. It did run kinda crappy (as in I needed a better PC but still was buggy), but I was actually pretty impressed. It's suffered from massive and unprecedented...

    Alien: Isolation... Is a GOOD Alien game possible? (leaked screens)

    Hmm this reminds me: I never played past the first DLC on this. Gonna get all the extras and try to get the VR mod up and running -- anyone know if that still works? I remember on the original Rift DK2 it was pretty flawless and pants-sh**tingly effective. I haven't had enough nightmares...

    AMD 6700 (non-XT) - Possible mid range champ launching soon.

    How about they just start producing, you know, more 6800XTs? Instead of binning them and marking them all up as 6900XTs and 6950XTs?

    Are games starting to out-pace GPU development?

    What the FUCK? I haven't kept up on programming for like 15 years, but is that the shit "programmers" are pumping out? For AAA games? And these people have degrees in programming? Is C and C++ really that hard? (I sure didn't think so!) Of course, that's easy for me to say having not been...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I got the same. And yet the card worked fine for me up until a few weeks ago when I upgraded. Memory quantity isn't the only factor to consider as we've seen time and time again.

    EVGA B stock GPUs on sale now! $1199 3090 FTW3

    I upgraded both my PCs finally after waiting 2 years. I wasn't about to roll the dice on the next generation when I could get cards at MSRP now (even if during normal times they SHOULD be cheaper). Hell if a 4080 comes out and people CAN actually buy them without using bots within the next 12...

    Poll: Do you play with an inverted mouse?

    There's your problem: you think you need those big buttons as your defaults. There's more keys within reach without lifting your hand using esdf. I played ogl ladder q2ctf back in the day with a team that wasn't all fluent in English. I had literally every key on my keyboard bound to a hotkey...

    Poll: Do you play with an inverted mouse?

    Inverted y axis on everything that uses first person perspective. And esdf is where your fingers go. Wasd is an abomination. Why would you move your hand off home row position? THAT doesn't make any sense.

    AMD 5600 CPU on sale

    Still rocking a 4790k myself. Wanted to upgrade real bad this year but with AM4 and DDR4 about to go EOL, and Intel's new platform having teething issues with windows 11 and insane ddr5 prices, I just can't get myself to pull the trigger :(

    GIGABYTE Z690I AORUS ULTRA D4? problem

    Looks like the board is simple being replace with the z690i aorus ultra "plus" The only difference I can see is wifi 6e vs wifi 6 in the original board? I'm not seeing this new board version for sale anywhere yet either.

    This late in the product lifecycle I can't imagine paying over original MSRP. $600 for a 3070 is original price of a 3070 ti, which is already a bad value. Just hold off until something pops up.

    GIGABYTE Z690I AORUS ULTRA D4? problem

    Curious to see what happens here. This board would fit my build like a glove and the next closest option is over $100 more for features I don’t need or want.

    I'm definitely holding out for a reasonable MSRP 3080 or 6800 xt (I need 4k-ish performance), and not a FTW ULTRA GAMING RGB ROG STRIX LOL ROFL $$$ version for an additional $300. I suspect they're just not making them, though, because why would they--people who have money and don't want to...

    Well, they want you to pay $920 for a card that MSRPs for $700 (with an improved cooler, to be fair), and 12gb 3080s can actually be found for only a few dollars more.

    Yep, that rebate thing (and limiting step-up for me to the ridiculously top MSRP stuff) basically prevented me from stepping up. They know exactly what they are doing.

    R7 5800X3D, R7 5700X, R5 5600, R5 5500, R5 4600g, R5 4500, R3 4300 incoming

    Really this just makes me more excited for the next gen AMD later this year. I was all ready to upgrade, but the new Intel platform has had some hiccups--ddr5 is still expensive, the chips are power hungry, and some of the ddr4 boards are having problems (I'm going ITX for my build). I ended...

    I would definitely give it a try. The price is right, and if it doesn't "work" for you, you won't be out much re-selling it.

    Upgrade to 3090 ti or wait for 4090?

    if you want that warm and fuzzy, and you know you won’t “regret” spending the money, then go for it IMO. Retail therapy is a thing and sometimes having that new thicc shiny just makes you feed good XD. Just make sure you unload your current card quick lol.

I know a guy who did exactly that (actually a lot more than that to a tune of about 50x that at least, lots in the form of the original casaceus coins--he even gave me one when they were worth less than $100 and said keep it as a souvenir. I sold it like a...

    This is a really weird thread asking about whether it's worth it upgrading halo card to halo card while also asking if it's financially smart. If you want the best at all times and you're gaming at the highest res then of course it's always worth it. If you want a financially smart decision...

    I'm just waiting to see if the rtx 3080 12gb cards will drop in price below where they came to market. They feel like an $1000 card at most considering original MSRP of 3080. Was thinking of doing a step up but my only options they give me are their WAY marked up 3080 12gb, 3080ti, and 3090

    One hot 12700k 100c - Asus Z690-i - NR200P Max - Solved

    Looks like I'm late to the party here but I was looking for info on this case, and it seems to be pretty much gone from all vendors (the MAX version with psu and aio). I have to wonder if the shitty AIO is the reason this thing doesn't seem to be for sale anymore.

    Yeah I noticed the same thing. I keep not entering anymore because they keep not coming down in price. The shuffle is worthless if they're going to not be any better (and are in fact higher priced) than StockX or Ebay.
