    50 of 11 ms ... what does this mean? (HTC Vive)

    I hope it's not still the Core 2 Duo and 4870x2 :)

    Why can't we back order a 3080?

    Why can't we just place an order for a 3080 and it ships when the stock comes in? I am getting tired of playing these games waiting for notifications only to see it's out of stock again... I am starting to get more and more excited for Big Navi...

    HP Reverb G2

    I have owned the Rift, Rift S, and Valve Index. I gotta say that I do not like the Index controller. Kind of look forward to the Reverb ones.

    What's your first ever newegg purchase? Let's share some memories!

    First order from 2004 was boring, here's my 2nd from a year later. This build actually lasted quite a while. Upgraded to an Opteron a little over a year later. I think there was a new video card as well but ordered from somewhere else.

    AMD, NVIDIA Have Launched "The Least-Appealing GPU Upgrades in History"

    State Legislator Wants to Ban Kids from Buying Video Game Loot Boxes

    I'm not opposed to this and have personally spent money chasing after mythical items on Steam and Mobile. I've also seen my daughter become addicted to the crane machine after winning a plushy, then wanting to drop every allowance dollar on the prospect of winning more. There is some truth here...

    Congress Proposes Repeal of $7,500 EV Tax Credit

    Personally I don't care to pay for someone else's EV. Remember this isn't the government's money, it's our money.

    Corsair TX850M PSU & Type 4 Cable Kit Luck Draw!

    I love my H100i. It replaced an H60 and it's been running strong for maybe a year and a half. Also have a bunch of other Corsair gear, SSD, PS, headset, etc...

    100 CDs vs. Hydraulic Press

    I subscribe to this guy. My favorite is either the motorcycle battery from the other day, or the pool balls. What's the other press channel?

    GTX 970 combined with a 1080?

    I used ATI/AMD cards for a long time and with each new generation I'd sell off my old AMD card. I finally switched back to Nvidia about a year and half ago when I bought a 970. Now I'm probably going to purchase a 1080 at or soon after launch. With DX12 and PhysX, can I or does it make sense...

    Corsair Hydro Series VGA Cooling Lucky Draw

    1. Yes. I have owned and currently own numerous Corsair products. I am always pleased with Corsair's products. 2. No. A liquid cooler would add significant cost to an already expensive video card. Also the consumer may not place as much value on the cooler if it were designed around a...

    Corsair Graphite Series 780T Lucky Draw!

    I like that my H100i integrates perfectly with the top of my 900R. Having all the components integrate neatly while conforming to industry standards is one of the best features of the Corsair product line. One thing I would like to see in the future is a removable motherboard tray. Some of my...

    Remap GTAV controller buttons?

    I'm posting this here because I know it'll just get buried in Steam or Rockstar's forums. I'm using an XBox 360 controller for flying in GTAV and specifically want to remap the yaw from LB and RB to the right analog stick. I think this makes more sense but how can I do it? I think it's...

    500 Million ASUS Motherboards. The Celebration Starts at [H]. - Lucky Draw

    I've been using Asus motherboards exclusively since Abit's decline in the mid 2000s. My fondest memory was when I scraped together enough money to buy my A8N-SLI and Opteron cpu, along with everything else to build a high-end rig. I forget what rig I had been using but it was getting long in the...

    Memorable Overclocking-Friendly CPUs

    I remember saving my high school minimum wage money for a 300A and an Abit BM6. That was one of the best rigs I ever owned. It lasted about eight years until my dad threw it away in favor of a newer HP or something. I'd probably still have it in the closet.
