    Folding@Home bigadv EOL 4th Anniversary Challenge: [H] vs TAAT

    Team EVGA is a very strong team. That's where I was folding at before moving here. Maybe if someone knows some folders on oither teams we can reach out to them. Tom's harware would be a good team to compete against.

    There are other ways we can have a challenge even if it's just us. Team EVGA have done time zone challenges and who remembers the Chimp challenge from long ago. We as a folding community need to work together to make stuff happen.

    Been looking at upgrading a 1070 ti that I bought off the FS/T forum a year ago

    I have had a 1070ti and still have a 1080ti and would not go back to a 10xx series for gaming . The RTX cards are so much better. I would suggest a cheap used 30xx series or a 2070s as a upgrade Id bbudget is a issue. I payed 800 for my 3070ti new from EVGA. was a good buy short of fan issues.

    Been looking at upgrading a 1070 ti that I bought off the FS/T forum a year ago

    The 3070ti is a big step up. Yes the 1070ti will work but if you are on better then 1080p then you are missing out on some eye candy. Eye candy is what makes game more enjoy to me. I have gone from a 1060 3gb to a 3080 12gb in the last few years. With a few gpu,'s in between. Could not see going...

    sell the 3080 x2 for a 4090?

    I would not think twice on a upgrade from a 10 gig 3080 to a 4090. If you are planning on using it. Wasted money if you don't plan on Using it. I myself would have it working within the hour of receiving it.

    Is medium to high end Pc gaming becoming too niche ?

    I have been building systems for many years. Started off with built systems. Then I figured out how to build one. Yes I have newer hardware but not the newest stuff. I build for a few reasons. My daughter is a gamer and she has a nice rig with 9th gen Intel CPU and a 2080ti Kingpin GPU. Works...

    Not too worried about the burning connectors. After some looking around it's not real wide spread of a issue. Just a few isolated ones have done it. We all know folding does not us a lot of power. LOL. By the time I get some cash saved up for one it will prob be after the first of the year...

    There are plenty of great deals out there for a upgrade. Moving forward just a few gens on his cpu would make a ton of difference. Great example is move to a 8700K on a Z370. Can be bought cheap. My daughter had hers with a 3070ti and did not see a major bottleneck in gaming. Another great deal...

    WTB budget Gaming PC Desktop for a Senior Citizen

    Having windows or not should not be a issue. Easy to download a copy to a flash drive and load. Windows keys are available easy enough and not too pricy. A decent 8th gen Intel and a 1060 would work good for him. Case wise if you can't reuse his. They can be bought for less than 50 bucks. A 450w...
