    OLOy 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 $99.99

    In order to hire a native English speaker to proof read their about page, they would need to increase their memory prices by 5 dollars a kit :P If the RAM works, and has good support backing it when it fails with a low failure rate, then I don't care if they color their logo on their website...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (12nm refresh edition) *** 2/13 BACK TO $85 SHIPPED AMAZON

    Let's also not forget about the Zen+ IPC improvements. So overall, you get 2 extra cores (4 threads) and a little more kick per clock. Worth the 16 dollars IMHO.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1500X - $69 @ Amazon

    Also came to look at the deal for the Ryzen 1500X and left thinking about buying the Ryzen 1600. That processor alone needs it's own deal thread.

    [Hot] Micron 8TB SSD for under $800

    For those of you who are going to buy this drive, be careful of its endurance. It is a very low endurance drive that's meant Hyperscale Datacenters (This is not meant to be a client drive but can be used as one). At 100% 4K Random Writes, this drive has an endurance of an extremely low .05...

    1TB Intel 660p NVMe $88

    For anyone doing normal PC tasks such as using a browser, listening to music, and PC gaming, this drive is just as good as the rest and is of tremendous value. For those who do multimedia editing/production or any storage extensive tasks (including heavy writes), move on as this isn't your...

    HOT: ADATA Ulitimate SU630 3D Nand 2.5 960GB SSD $75

    Considering this is a 2.5 inch SATA drive, HMB is not an option as its part of the NVMe protocol and not the SATA protocol.

    Real-Time Ray Tracing Support Comes to GeForce GTX GPUs and Game Engines

    I'm seeing a lot of talk about Raytracing and Tensor Cores... Just to clarify, their two separate things. Tensor cores have nothing to do with Raytracing, they have everything to do with Nvidia DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling). Raytracing on RTX cards is offloaded to RT cores rather than...

    Save Zero Dollars by Opting for Intel's iGPU-Disabled CPUs

    The way it was put to me was that the dark silicon (disabled IGP) allows for greater heat dissipation and higher overclocks. Therefore, these processors are marketed for the gamer who expects to use dedicated graphics and overclocks (These processors will usually have a higher overclock potential.)

    EVGA Nu Audio - New Internal Sound Card

    Not sure how this card could compete with the Creative Soundblaster ZXR from a internal sound card perspective. I mean the ZXR on paper has better specs than this card and Creatives been doing it since the beginning. Also, the ZXR goes on sale from time to time for around 170-180 so if this...

    Crucial MX500 1TB M.2 SSD Is $113 @Amazon

    It being SATA shouldn't be that much of a big deal... When some of the guys at work did a real world blind test to see if one could tell the difference between a SATA and PCIe NVMe SSD (Based on how fast the OS and applications loaded), nobody could tell the difference because the drive just...

    Dell Foils Hack Attempt with Rapidly Deployed Countermeasures

    Gamers Nexus Calls Out Tom’s Hardware for Their “Just Buy It” RTX 2080 Article

    Developer: “There Is Absolutely No Adoption for the Windows Store”

    Warm? ... 4tb WD Blue = $99

    The 4TB HGST Deskstar NAS drive would be a better deal as its motor and platter bearings are rated for 24/7 operation (the blues are only rated for 8 hour operation) and if using in a large storage configuration have vibration sensors to negate read/write head vibration from other drives.
