    AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Reviews

    Another vote for watching from the sideline. 7000 series is faster, but hot, hot, hot🥵! I recently upgraded from 3700X to 5900X to stick with a good chip from an established (yeah, EOL too) platform.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    It's most certainly a combination of many things. Kudos to Jensen for being diplomatic, but the way Andrew made the announcement I don't really see the two as "great friends" anymore.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    Yeah, but if that's all there was to it why didn't Andrew Han just come out and say that? Why not just issue a press release and move on? Why invite the youtoobers out to CA to stir up a bunch of drama?

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    Bling-Bling! I went the pragmatic route and just used some black lego to address the little bit of sag from the 3080Ti.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    These 4000 series cards are so freaking big that we're going to go full circle- time to turn your case on it's side and plant your monitor on the top again just like your old Packard Bell 386.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    I won't pretend I understand how to run a business, but, like a lot of things in life, I don't think you can point to any single reason here why EVGA gave up GPU's. After reading for a few days now, here's my take (on thread page 11, heh). No doubt I've missed multiple somethings...

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    There is a more-or-less official acknowledgment of the news in their forums by JacobF: https://forums.evga.com/Official-Message-from-EVGA-Management-m3574574.aspx And here's the first write-up I could find for those like me who are video-adverse...

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    Right, what's going on? EVGA went straight to Jay-Z and Tech Jeebus directly without an official announcment? This is crazy.

    Razor Kishi Game Controller for Android Phone (USB-C) $30 bucks (normally like 60-70)

    I don't think reliability is a big issue with these, but can't speak to it personally as I haven't used mine that much. I am pretty sure that a company called Gamevice built the V1 Kishi for Razer though, so general razer reliability issues may not apply here.

    Razor Kishi Game Controller for Android Phone (USB-C) $30 bucks (normally like 60-70)

    I grabbed one of these off of ebay a few months back for about $38. Alternatively, Best Buy has these on sale currently for $45 (Android) or $50 (Xbox) if you don't trust "open box" (mine looked new and works well). There's really no difference between the "Android" and "Xbox" versions of these...

    AMD to Host Livestream Event to Unveil Next Generation Ryzen Processors August 29th Monday

    Yep, that's me. Started out with a 1700X and an X470 board. Sold the 1700X to a friend and dropped in a 3700X. Now planning on building the kid a rig around the 3700X and upgrading to the 5800X/X3D and trying my best to sit AM5 out.

    Nvidia Shield TV Pro $169 @ Amazon - DEAL OVER

    This was the main concern I had about buying one (and the reason I was patient and waited for a sale)- that it is still the 2019 model and a new shield version should be forthcoming. But as far as I know there's been no announcement from nVidia, just that a new one is "due". I can't speak to...

    Who is still using a Sandy Bridge era chip

    Still have my 2500k going strong in my kid's gaming PC. Just sat down and tweaked it back to 4.4 GHz the other evening. An oldie but a goodie.

    Nvidia Shield TV Pro $169 @ Amazon - DEAL OVER

    Ah, nice, I thought about posting this too but wasn't sure it was relevant enough. I've been wanting a Shield Pro for a while and grabbed one from Best Buy yesterday for the sale price. They just drove it over from the store and delivered for free today- faster than Amazon. Now I can finally...

    Zen3 prices rise

    I'm considering a 5800X or 5900X as well, and can hand-me-down my 3700X, so have been watching prices. I know it's very location specific, but I have access to a Microcenter. They've been pretty stable on pricing for the the past few weeks, although they lowered the 5800X3D from $419.99 to...

    EVGA Keyboard and Mouse for $9.23 each

    Keyboard and mouse are $15 again at EVGA with free shipping. Not as good as $10, but still pretty cheap and even a little lower with an associate code.

    5900x $329

    "9 sold in the last 24 hours". Either people aren't around to see the $329 price or aren't buying when they do (or ebay metrics aren't accurate).

    5900x $329

    I'm seeing $359 now, how long was it at $329? I don't need to upgrade my 3700X, but I want to. I can resist at $360, but if the 5900X/5800X3D keep dropping ($299, pls?) I'll grab one and ride out at least the first few gens of AM5.

    EVGA Keyboard and Mouse for $9.23 each

    Pretty sure the Z20 and Z15 come with a palm rest, but the Z12 doesn't. So only need one for a Z15 if you are replacing the one it came with. And in that case, I'm not sure if the $10 Z12 one is compatible.

    2080Ti died...what to replace with?

    I don't have any complaints with my 3080Ti FTW and the CX48. I don't have Cyberpunk so haven't really stressed things, but Horizon Zero Dawn runs and looks real nice. I think you'll be in good shape to skip at least the 4000 series now.

    LG 48" C1 OLED $799.99 Costco w/5 yr warranty - $796.99 Buydig w/4 year extended warranty

    Originally, the OP had only listed the Buydig deal (that's what jmilcher was referencing). After an edit, Costco was added. Pretty sure you're safe buying from Costco. Nice deal btw, I paid about $1250 for the CX a year ago from Costco.
