    The "My Wii is a Doorstop" club

    I hardly ever use mine, mainly use the Wii U. Even less of a reason to use the original Wii nowadays. Don't bump old posts without a good reason, particularly from 11 years ago. If you want to discuss it start a new thread. -Oldie

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

    I feel like if today was any indicator these should be pretty easy to pick up maybe by as soon as next week. The reason I say that is because today they stayed in stock for almost 30 minutes.

    Gigabyte 4090 Gaming OC arrived - fits in Corsair 4000 Case

    They may have originally been designed for the full AD102 GPU chip which will likely pull 600 Watts.

    Gigabyte 4090 Gaming OC arrived - fits in Corsair 4000 Case

    Great write up and thorough pictorial, I think a lot of people could benefit from this as people really lack the Geo-spacial awareness to imagine this behemoth in the flesh. Your photos are fantastic. It seems we are long gone from the days of a quick expansion card install. Who would have...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    I think demand overall is going to be low, for this and especially the new RTX 4000 series. A lot of people are "full" and don't have money for seconds. We just got out of two years or so of insane demand for PC components as people built tons of PCs to game on during the lock down. Most...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Would anyone reccoment upgrading from a 9900k to one of these? I only game at 4k 144Hz. I run my 9900k at 5Ghz with an XMP profile on the RAM at 3600Mhz.

    Upgrade path for old 1800X build

    I would not even consider a 12700k, your board allows for a 5800X3D, which will outperform a 12700k. I'd consider upgrading to that chip if you want the absolute best gaming performance. Make sure you update the BIOS of your board and you'll be all set. That should make for an extremely capable...

    Raptor Lake 2022 October at the latest

    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/intel-core-i9-13900k-with-and-without-power-management-settings,3.html It looks like based on this R23 Cinebench score that the 13900k scores about the same as a 12900ks for singled threaded performance at 2290? :( With this in mind, would it be better to go...

    Raptor Lake 2022 October at the latest

    I've got a 9900k right now, clocked at 5.0Ghz on all cores. I game using a 4k 144Hz panel with an RTX 3090. Would Raptor Lake or the new Ryzen 7000 series offer any significant improvement? I've got the upgrade bug really bad, so much so that I'm debating picking up a 12900k now.

    That's $4,000 RETAIL. I imagine actual street/scalper price for these will be near $5,000 to $6,000.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    The dead pixel wasn't the reason I switched to the FI32U. I could have easily tried my hand at a third FV43U. In comparing the two, I agree that the FV43U has better blacks and much, much better HDR performance. My main issue was just having trouble adjusting to using a 43 inch display. I was...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yea I had two of these and sent both back to NewEgg. Each had dead pixels. The first had a small cluster in the center, along with dust under the screen. The second only had a single one on the left side. It was only visible on a white screen. I ended up getting their 32inch model and got a...

    FS: Outriders Steam Key

    Hello, I recently purchased two Gigabyte products and have two one Outrider Steam Key. I don't really have an interest in the game so I figure I would sell them instead. Current Steam reviews put this game at "mixed". There's a demo on Steam that's avalible to try for free to see if you enjoy...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    I went ahead and bought the 32". Here they are side by side in my Mom's basement :D . The FI32U compared to the FV43U gives a much more traditional PC desktop experience. When I first used the FV43U, it actually felt very large on the desk. The colors and HDR seem better on the FV43U, but I...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I just received my replacement monitor from NewEgg. I found one dead pixel near the left edge of the screen. I also noticed exactly what you're describing as well with the left and right edges appearing to be curved. I think I am going to go ahead and keep the monitor at this point. Only one...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Have you tried updating the firmware with only one monitor connected to the PC? Also keep in mind it actually takes about a full, no shit ten minutes or so. Mine appeared to be hung up but I just let it sit and it eventually updated. Unfortuantly after the update I noticed some dust and also...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    That's good news. I should have my second one Monday so hopefully it is okay. That's odd that they misapplied the sticker, just another example of the terrible quality of these.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Any idea what could be causing this? During the brief time I had the monitor before I sent it back for a replacement, it was annoying when the monitor was postioned close to my face. I think moving the monitor further back on my desk might help a bit. I like how you mentioned that it resembles...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I agree, return it. The QC issues with monitors is just ridiculous. We need to keep returning these until the companies get their act together.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I know I was really upset with mine as well. I had dirt under the screen and some dead pixels. I was so ticked I immediately boxed it up and sent it back to NewEgg, didn't really even bother playing with it too much. It seemed awesome, but there's clearly some QC issues with these monitors.

    Just returned mine to NewEgg. What a waste of money on express shipping :(. Had a small blotch of dead pixels as well as what looked like a smudge under the screen in another area. Really upset that this was over a $1,000 and they can't QC these panels very well. I currently have an older Dell...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Should we be connecting this using an HDMI cable or a DisplayPort cable? I just ordered one from NewEgg and am wondering what's the best way to setup the monitor out of the box. Can anyone share their initial setup/settings process? I have an RTX 3090 if that matters.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    I just looked and I'm still showing the monitor as being out of stock? I actually haven't been able to find this in stock on any site. Do you think it would be worth upgrading to this from an Alienware 3440x1440p 120Hz panel from a few years ago?

I'm kinda leaning towards keep the ultra wide, but am wonder if anyone has any opinions on if this...
