    Dead - Ryzen 5 3600 - $159.99

    I can't believe how much power you get for $160 these days. Great time to be buying CPU's!

    It's been jumping in and out of stock. Put it on your wish list and you should get notified.

    Anyone know how well Gsync works with this? If it comes back in stock my work is willing to buy it for me. It would be nice if I could game on it too :P

    Acer Predator Helios 300, i7 10750H, RTX 2060 6GB $1199

    Yeah. The added size would definitely help however I find the 512 to be plenty. I ended up putting in a 2TB nvme in as a second drive and it's been just fine.

    Acer Predator Helios 300, i7 10750H, RTX 2060 6GB $1199

    Interesting. I may need to do that as well. My CPU gets pretty hot sometimes will I'm gaming and sometimes (very rarely) my games freeze. GPU temps are fine but CPU really climbs. I also repasted when I added a second nvme drive. Helped a little maybe?

    Acer Predator Helios 300, i7 10750H, RTX 2060 6GB $1199

    I'm not sure if this is the going rate these days for this laptop but this seems like a lot of machine for the money. Very similar to my Triton 500 except this has a 10th gen chip and let me tell you that gaming a joy on it...

    Rumor: 3080 31% faster than 2080 Ti

    Fair enough. I'll drink to that. Cheers to being computer enthusiasts. It is a ton of fun! 😊😊🍻🍻

    Rumor: 3080 31% faster than 2080 Ti

    Though I agree with what you said I also agree with Bankle. Just because he "thinks" it's not worth it doesn't mean it isn't. Top tier card requires $1200. Take it or leave it. Personally, the reason that's a tough pill to swallow for me is because of how quickly GPU's depreciate once a new gen...

    Evga Bstock - 1080ti for $500

    Wait it out if you can. Next gen should be substantially better at RTX/DLSS and the 1080ti should hold you over until then.

    Evga Bstock - 1080ti for $500

    I'd probably go for the evga 2070 Super Black Edition for 519.99. https://www.newegg.com/evga-geforce-rtx-2070-super-08g-p4-3071-kr/p/N82E16814487456 EDIT: The MSI is 509.99 but I've heard people complain about build issues with this particular one. My second system has a Gaming X Trio 2070...

    Evga Bstock - 1080ti for $500

    Is this a good deal though? It seems that 2070 Super's can be had brand new with longer warranties for around the same price.

    Lucky kid! That system should last a good long while!

    ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus $167 Amazon

    Meh, if it had more USB ports it would've been fine. I produce music for fun. I don't want to get into any debates here but I upgraded from an x79 Dark with a 4930k. It had 12 USB and really did just fine. That computer was built in 2014 but I realized I was ready to upgrade. And I don't want...

    ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus $167 Amazon

    Normally I would but the added latency is noticeable in music production. Even the 12 foot cable I run from my midi kb directly to the motherboard has noticeable latency. It can be mitigated but is noticeable nonetheless. I guess I could be picky about what I put on there but for me it made...

    ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus $167 Amazon

    I run a music studio from my machine so yes, that's very few. EDIT: Perhaps my case is unique but once you factor in kb, mouse, dac, midi kb, mixer, usb headset, usb mic, drum machine, wireless phone charger, ilok that's 10 right there... Just saying

    ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus $167 Amazon

    This board is good but has very few USB ports (six?) and no front panel thunderbolt 3 header. I had it and ended up putting a Crosshair VIII which was way pricier but necessary for me.

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    I couldn't stand how Rafaella called Picard "JL". He's "Jean-Luc"! Anyway, any Star Trek that Kurtzman touches goes to shit. Don't expect this next one to be any better. I miss the Berman/Braga days...

    12 quarts mobil 1 synthetic, various grades $30, ymmv, instore.

    I've been using Rotella T4 and Delo for a while and it's the best (Shell and Chevron, respctively). Granted, this goes mostly towards trucks or older cars but as soon as I started using it my engine told me how happy it was. It is diesel oil but it's way better for gas engines, too. It's made to...

    AMD RYZEN 7 3800X 8-Core 3.9 GHz $339.99

    I still wish there was an option to disable any threads with the word Microcenter in the title. We used to have one in Santa Clara. They "said" they'd reopen but never did. F'ing Bay Area rental costs...

    So do you wait for 3060 / 3070, given they ~seem~ relatively close, or get a 2060 / 2070 Super today?

    I would be shocked if we see the 3000 series before Q4 of this year.

    Question for the veterans of PC gaming: why was the Radeon 9700 Pro such a big deal?

    I remember buying mine brand new from Fremont Fry's. I still have it actually.

    I got a brand new 2080 Ti MSI Gaming X Trio for $800. It was still wrapped in plastic. I figured with this whole lockdown thing it was worth it to be blown away by graphics :)
