    9700K $199 Micro Center (plus $20 off MB)

    Nice! Kid is looking at a new build for his own with Ryzen, but this might be a better deal. but after some consideration between this and the I9 9900k he went with this instead! He upgraded from an 15 3350p to this 9700k with an Auros z390 (@169.99 before tax). Thanks for the heads up!

    'NBA 2K21' Will Cost $70 USD for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Is this the new normal?

    My rule of thumb for years has been not to buy until it's either 75% off or $7.50. All depends how much I want the game. I have a backlog I can catch up on, and there's a lot of repetative mechanics on endless sequels anyway, so I don't care how long it takes. I'll never pay full price ever...

    Expired certificate causing Firefox to disable all extensions

    My issue seemed to get resolved almost by itself. This morning I was removing cookie autodelete and reinstalling, after doing it with that one, all other extensions worked without any other interventions.

    Borderlands GOTY $7.49 (75% off) over at Newegg.

    Originally had it on Xbox 360 and only bought BL2 for PC. Always passed up the sales on it because I hated the Xbox version and didn't want to replay on PC. After playing this remaster I'm glad I bought again! The stuff that was added to BL2... guess I need to play through this again and do...

    1080ti to a rx580? Am I crazy?

    First thought is you are crazy for selling 1080ti. Then again I keep my hardware til it's dead. How much could you possibly get with keeping it in savings? Is that really worth it? You could still save (insert your personal spending ways) more, as we all could. Sounds like your values changed...

    $749 for a motherboard ?!!??!

    Who buys? LOL, not me! I wouldn't have any need for it. Then again I don't have a need for what I currently have! I buy what I want though if I like the price.

    $749 for a motherboard ?!!??!

    It certainly looks nice... But geeze! They advertise all those options that might not even be used to make the sell. If I had more money to burn well hell, I'd just buy it for fun and buy even more stuff just to be able to implement all of those features.

    Corsair Recalls Some H100i RGB Platinum SE Coolers Over Faulty Plumbing

    I was never really sold on AIO's, and on my last build I was looking at the NH-D15S. Things changed when I found a package deal on [H] that provided a Corsair H110iGT along with the rest of the system. I have to say I like it. It stays so clean I don't even open up the case to clean like I do...

    Moved from iphone 3gs to android, to windows, and now back to android on Pie with Moto x4. iphone was OK, android was OK... a bit better at the time, but hated the proprietary apps that couldn't be removed with the Samsung I had. loved my windows phone but it's defunct and never had a real...

    The Division 2

    Got an email today with the title "Come see what a real government shutdown looks like in the Private Beta" I didn't think anything of it, just looked at the game again (so tempted to get it), and decided not to buy for now. Later I get this: I'm sure others have gotten this and was curious...

    New phone under $600

    OK so I've been using my new budget Moto X4 phone for 2 weeks. (definitely not the specs OP detailed) I have to say I really like it. Does everything I need, but I am having a strange issue. My contacts seem to be disappearing in groups for some reason. First time it happened only a few...

    Cloud Imperium Games Spent $4M a Month in 2017 Developing Star Citizen

    Windows 10 Mobile Is Officially Dead

    Back on Android (Moto X4) myself after a few years on the 640. Have to say I'm loving it so far. Still getting used to it but my hardware choice was an upgrade and I have a few apps I can use for work now that I didn't have with Win10 Mobile.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I should play this more, but was getting pretty bored the first hour of it. Enjoyed RDR1 so 2 has to be good... right? Just played a bit of Borderlands 2 and got another set of free keys ( 5J5BJ 6Z3HT 6FTFK TTJ33 6ZS5Z ) Ghost Recon Wildlands on my list for weekend, maybe The Division. Dirt...

    BioWare's new IP: Anthem

    I didn't like the art style and skipped the demo offer. Guess I'll have to read about it and find out if game-play is good. I'm interested in Div 2 but I have Div 1 and not super thrilled with it. (it's OK though I guess) I like Ghost Recon Wildlands a bit better.

    Windows 10 Mobile Is Officially Dead

    Might look into that, but now I'm thinking I'll just go for the android experience for a bit. I'm sure I can adjust and will like it as much. I've only seen mine and my family's phones. Everyone that sees mine don't even know what it is and people are always telling me to download apps. When I...

    Windows 10 Mobile Is Officially Dead

    WTH, this was decided some time ago so what's the big freaking deal? Only problem for me was the photo app kept showing old pics round and round. Not sure how to change that for diff. pics to show. Just got my Moto x 4 so charging that and making switch. Today my 640 gave me a green...

    New phone under $600

    LOL, well TV definitely not important in any way for me. I had an iphone at one time but I don't like itunes on my PC just for personal reasons. Maybe it has changed but when I had it with my 3gs I wasn't too impressed (limited use for me and wasted HD space back then). I like being able to plug...

    New phone under $600

    Lumia 640 owner here that hates high priced items of any sort that don't seem worth it. I am in the market for a new phone now but am waiting until I can catch the optimal deal (for me) before I pull the trigger. I got several of my phones on the cheap (under 65 as low as 35) and found them to...

    Far Cry 5 - $24.00 - Uplay Store

    Looking at the discounts I had 3 games in mind. GTA5 from GMG, or from Uplay FC5, or Ghost Recon Wildlands. GTA lost out fairly quick to FC5 and GRW. I ended up going for ultimate edition of GR Wildlands for 36 bucks. I Haven't had time to play much yet but I hope I made a good decision!

    "Sans Forgetica": The Font Designed to Help You Remember
