    Water block for XFX Merc 310 Black 7900XTX?

    And this is the reason I never buy a new gen card until I'm 100% certain there is a block for it already. Hence the reason I tend to buy reference designs.

    What game made you a PC Gamer?

    Even though I played C64 games. I still preferred my 2600 console. It's not until I played F16 fighting falcon on my cousin's pc that I fell in love with pc gaming and never looked back. Even on a monochrome monitor I was amazed at how complex the game was compared to the arcade type games on...

    What new OLED gaming monitors in 2023?

    Notice how all the responses require babying the display to some extent? IMO if you have to baby it then the answer is you should look elsewhere for a monitor for productivity work. A productivity monitor should just work as is without having to jump through "first/one time" hoops to have it be...

    We have enough oled monitors in the market. Personally would prefer to see improvements with mini led as opposed to oled.

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    I don't doubt what you're saying at all; However if say I have a stocks ticker, static images (excel, word documents, pdf documents) on 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for years; How long you think burn in would take to set in? I use my monitor for work as well as personal use.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Nothing to figure out it should go to sleep automatically if you have it setup in windows to turn off monitor after x number of inactivity minutes. Or if it senses no input.

    WTB RTX 4090.... worth a try!

    Not sure if the same rule applies for this gen, But isn't there a rule against scalping on here. Even if you bought it at scalping prices, I'm not sure you are able to sell it here for above MSRP. But I'm not 100% on this rule.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Some of us don't want a TV as a monitor. Features like going to sleep, DP, PBP are must for some of us. Other than that I would have been had a TV as my monitor. Not an OLED one though.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Definitely. Don't listen to the haters that complain about this that and the other. The game is visually one of the best and gameplay is fantastic.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    They were Korean not Chinese. Korean products have a better reputation than Chinese ones.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Fair or not, a substantial number of Americans will not buy a brand that is entirely Chinese. Especially if that brand is not well known outside of China. For the record I am not one of those.

    USB DAC and studio monitors best option?

    A digital signal is a digital signal from PC to USB DAC. Without switching out the monitor speakers, you won't notice any better quality of sound by changing USB DAC. Especially since you already are using balanced cables.

    FS: (Price Drop!!) Gigabtye Aorus Master 3080 10GB.

    Bump for a good price. If I had not already gotten a 3070 Ti for my secondary PC, I would have bought this off you.

    MicroCenter confirms GeForce RTX 4080 US pricing, from $1200 to $1549

    Yet I bet a big minority here will run and buy the ridiculously priced 4080. Can't blame Nvidia if the fish keeps biting in huge numbers.

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

    Maybe but I believe it's more of "custom water cooling" is too expensive crowd that shouts down WC IMO. Although if you're in the market for a 4090, I'm not sure you would be in that too expensive to justify crowd.

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

    Unless it's the water cooled one, Highly doubtfull. The max GPU length that case can accommodate is 330 mm. Most of MSI cards are longer than that by at least 5-6 mm.

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

    I often wonder who actually buys for literally thousands above retail pricing. I mean how compulsive and irresponsible do you have to be to do that. I mean it's not like a collection item or some super rare item.

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

    You clearly are not into water cooling. Those like me who are, prefer the founders cards because there typically is much wider availability of water blocks for them. And with WC, no need to worry about noisy fans.

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

    A waterblock would cost you around the same and even more. For those that intend to water cool their card, it's not a bad added premium.

    Best or some of the best Android smartphone ?

    This is the very reason I will never again get a Motorola phone. Had one years ago and got holding the bag when I found out their software updates are one of the worst.
