    FS: 75" Samsung Q9FN For Pickup In CT

    Maybe a long shot someone close to Fairfield, CT 06825, will see this, but sick of the Facebook folks! Asking $750. Not written for techies but : "This was the top of the line Samsung model when I got it (March 2019). It is still going to be easily better than the average run of the mill set...

    SSD prices keep falling Patriot 2 GB $80, DRAM NVME added for Leven Brand

    Yeah a 512GB boot drive is pretty brutal for an often used/main rig. Love me some cloning. I've bought single SSDs before that basically amount to 3 maybe 4 upgrades as I shuffle things around! Last 512GB went into the GFs laptop for her, and so when I have to fix it I don't want to poke myself...

    Samsung 980 Pro 2TB Nvme drive 4 x 4.0 $179.99 @ Microcenter

    Down to 174ish at Amazon. I followed the second and third link Mr Guverment provided about this write issue, and seems like a firmware out almost a year ago might have fixed it? (Firmware 5B2QGXA7). I was tempted to get the heatsink version for 189, though that doesn't have 10% cash back for...

    Samsung 980 Pro 2TB Nvme drive 4 x 4.0 $179.99 @ Microcenter

    No ambiguous "up to" 10% off for me. Just 10% straight up. I do have an Amazon card though. Prettty much so I can occasionally get 10% off things. I had a Chase card that gives 5% already when I got it a few years back. I was on a spree and was getting 10% on musical instruments. I don't know...

    Zotac rtx 3090 @ $999 on woot

    I'm on my second Zotac, no problems. 1080Ti first and now a 3080. The Ti was even an open box Amazon Warehouse deals type thing. Though maybe part of it is I don't wanna get myself unnecessarily scared, and haven't looked THAT hard, what I hear against them is usually more like "ew, Zotac", than...

    LG OLED TV Sale

    Best Buy got nothing on a 77" CX refurb for 2k though. Doesn't look like they want to deliver their open box $2600 "excellent condition", or any of the other, open box ones either. CX new priced like C1, so delivery only seems like a real option for a new one of those. Edit: ooooh maybe they'll...

    FS: i7 4790k Cpu, z97 Mobo, DDR3 Ram

    Ram gone. Open to offers on the cpu and mobo. I do have some z87 and some Pentium G3258 or whatever it's called in a TV PC, I could upgrade with this. So I probably won't take something embarassing just to get it out of here, but lmk! :LOL:

    I've had all 4 sticks in the board for probably about 2 years with total stability (I threw in the second 2 to run some Cloudera VMs when I was unemployed trying to learn some stuff), but I don't recall what speeds I ran at. :/ I did only make the secondary 16GB of ram a separate thing since I...

    5900x VID at > 1.45?

    I feel a little better. I would hope to see more of what that chart calls "Desktop Idle". I mean if I stare at CoreTemp long enough, I might see a couple blips of ~1.0v. But probably spending 80-90% of the time at 1.45-1.48v, not doing anything. Thought Asus might be up to something weird to...

    5900X $500 on Amazon

    Funny how we all have our own little things. I figured, if the consoles have 8 cores, I wanted 12 "just cause" lol. I wanted the 5900x since release. I already had to mutter to myself last gen, when I had a "lowly" i7 4790k, the consoles at least had crappy Jaguar cores, and I at least had 8...

    Any Reason Still to NOT get a Liquid Freezer 2 for AM4?

    Thanks guys. Ultimately I only waited a day or two and got one. With it being the last purchase, I def had ants in my pants. I got the 420 version. It was easy enough to mount by myself. Read some weirdness about needing an extra hand, maybe with a different rev or something (I got the 4). The...

    5900x VID at > 1.45?

    I had been out of the game for a bit. Did a crash course here and Google when finally upgrading. I was surprised to see the VID fluctuating around, but mostly over 1.45 VID on an Asus TUF Gaming X570 pro. Idle is like 41C. I thought maybe I mounted the cooler poorly, but I think it's more the...

    Any Reason Still to NOT get a Liquid Freezer 2 for AM4?

    Does the Rev 4 hardware basically alleviate all the AM4 woes I been hearing about? Sounds like it might still be a bit of a pita to install, but not toooo bad? Any reason not to get the biggest size I can fit? I realize performance drops off after 280, but for 30 bucks ehh.. Hoping to cool...

    Xbox series X controllers on sale at $40

    Glad to hear the d-pad is better. It "looks" more like the 360 one, and that one was garbage. Ok so maybe it's just that it is disk-like shaped. But the old old one was bad enough I shuddered a little lol.

    **It's DEAD, Jim!** Logitech MX518 $19.99 and more on sale at Best Buy

    I'm still using my G5 at my desk (a lot like the MX518). I wish they made this dang shape in wireless still. Having to go wireless with a Corsair Lapboard I got, for using in front of the TV, drove me nuts. I loved the lapboard, but disliked all the new mice I got to try. Palm grip guy, they're...

    [DEAD]Steam 2020 Halloween sale is here!

    The DLC is super new. I had just picked up the pass to get the next one too. Everything you've heard about the game good or bad, unless like in the last couple weeks is about the main game. I enjoyed it. That said, DLC is like 30 bucks at the absolute full price. If you want to roll with the...

    How Does the GTX 1080 Ti Stack Up in 2020?

    I paid like effective $530 (tax and all) for my 1080Ti 3 years ago, essentially an open box type purchase on a ZOTAC AMP edition. I got a lot of longevity out of her. Kind of went off on a console tangent for awhile there with a new TV. Back in the PC space with a Corsair Lapboard purchase, and...

    Are Plasma TV's still good for gaming in 2019?

I did swap out an ST60 just to get the figure down catching the VT60 on sale. I'd certainly have been game for a 4k version! I...

    warm deal?? Samsung NU8000

    I had best buy price match B&H for the 75" Q9FN for 3299.99 with 10% cash back for getting their card (will pay in full, not worried about redonkulous APR). So not too far from a free PS4 pro on top. The Q8 and 9 have dimming zones. I understand a whole different ball of wax than topic, but...

    HOT: Samsung 2018 55" "BFGD" 120hz @ 1440p with HDR CHEAP @ 799.99 or, Open Box $679 Best Buy ht

    Should probably clarify a touch in the OP. The way it's implied here that "it works with Nvidia cards", most everyone will interpret that as some form of variable refresh rate will work. I hope when eventually nvidia does support VRR over HDMI like one would assume with HDMI 2.1 (4k@120Hz and...

    Xbox One X Bundle w/ Fallout 76 - $349.99 @ Newegg

    I bit, not sure why! I have a Xbox One I use barely at all, use PS4 way more, and I'm having a hard time parting with my 65" Panasonic Viera VT60 for anything other than a bigger OLED, which basically leaves me with $7k+ TVs. I know a 65" OLED will be "better", but I never upgraded a main set...
