    Buy 2080Ti now, or wait for holidays?

    I think this depends entirely on what AMD brings to the table this year. When the 2080 series launched, AMD had nothing that even came close. A year and a half later, AMD still doesn't have anything that comes close. But big Navi is coming, possibly before the 3-series. If AMD can give us 2080...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Well... this is the reason I need to not buy it then. Thanks for letting me know.

    Gigabyte X470 Aorus won't post with any BIOS overclock

    I have a Gigabyte X470 Aorus and a Ryzen 2700... I'm trying to get an OC going on this setup and my board won't have anything to do with it. All I'm attempting to do is a small uptick to voltages and then raise CPU multiplier. If I raise it, to any value, the system won't post. If I overclock...

    For the sake of my bank account, I really, really wan't do disagree with you.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Dang, $400 is a steal. I'd have taken this over the 3.2TB if it were an option (at that price) when I ordered. Trying very hard to tell myself I don't need ~10TB of SSD.

    ATI vs Nvidia in the current market?

    Are you planning to run a high resolution (ultrawide or 4k)? If not, you'll probably be very well served by whatever fills the $300-$400 space in the next few months.

    ATI vs Nvidia in the current market?

    You've waited 15 years... the best think you could do right now is wait a few more months. Both AMD and Nvidia have a new round of GPUs coming out soon. Rumors suggest AMD could be announcing as early as March, and the general assumption is more like May for Nvidia. Nvidia's RTX cards are...

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

    It's especially hard to do when your putting out open world games on an annual schedule. There is no defending the way Ubisoft has been releasing games lately. They are taking all of their great IPs and turning them into boring, lazy, shitty games.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

    I liked Unity, but it definitely felt a little stale when it came out... and it was also exceptionally buggy. I also didn't help that it was a follow up to Black Flag, which was absolutely phenomenal. By the time Syndicate came out, I was tired of buying Assassins Creed games annually, and the...

    ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $999.99

    If you're serious, go check out Evga's store. The have an (admittedly worse) SKU in stock for $999, and you can get an extra $50 off with an associate code (easily found in their forums). IMO Evga is the only company worth considering if you have to buy a 2080 at this point in the cycle... at...

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

    Likewise, I've heard good things but this came hot off the Unity burnout. I've always told myself I'll pick it up eventually... guess it pays to wait. Epic has already dropped two free AAA games this year... here's to hoping the trend continues.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    This is exactly my take. We're all smart enough to know it's not an exact snapshot of the install base. It's the best source were going to get for this information though. It's accurate enough to make reasonably sound estimations of where the market is at.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Why so grumpy? Half the shit you just spewed doesn't even apply here... did you just show up to start a fight? Nobody is claiming that Steam's numbers are a depiction of the sales numbers of any given SKU, so I'm not sure what nonsense your talking about the numbers not adding up to hundreds of...

    A replacement (new) GPU for $500

    That would be nice, but I wouldn't expect it. My (totally baseless) expectation is that the 3070 will give us 2080 Super performance at $500-$600. 3080 I expect will be 2080 Ti territory, maybe a hair faster, at under (but close to) $1,000. 3080 Ti will probably be the typical 30% or so boost...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I only half tuned into the earnings call, and I don't really pay and mind to what Nvidia is doing outside consumer GPUs... do we know how lucrative things like AI, quantum computing, or even professional rendering gear even are? The vibe I got from the earnings call is gaming is still the bread...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I view everything going on in the RTX market as a direct result of competition from AMD. RTX cards came out high because AMD didn't have anything to compete with them. Few months later, AMD comes up with something that does compete in the mid-range segment, and suddenly we have the Super cards...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I don't think the presence of Intel GPU's on there really changes what is being disputed. Per Steam's metric, the breakdown is (roughly) 75% Nvidia, 15% AMD, 10% Intel as far as market share is considered. I don't think removing Intel from that metric would drastically change the ratio of Nvidia...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Second listing ended, meaning if you attempt an RMA, you're very likely going to be offered a refund, not a replacement. Folks are getting too hung up on the life remaining on these drives. 59% of this drive left means you still have ~12PB of writes left. Consumer drives are much less than...

    A replacement (new) GPU for $500

    If they were gaming at 1080p or 1440p i'd agree with you, but OP's got a 4K display listed. I can't imagine they're trying to run 4K on a 7970 though. OP, what's the target resolution here, 4K or 1440p? I'm not really sure the CPU will be much of a bottleneck if we're looking at 4K. Certainly...

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection (confirmed)

    I did some reading about it last night... I can't even see how they could launch a product like this. Maybe having a 7.1 audio setup exaggerates the issue and it's not so bad off stereo speakers or headphones? That's the only justification I can think of. If it sounds like this on all...

    Nvidia's market share is the reason why you're only getting the first part of that desire.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    I've played the game twice through now, both times with a controller, and never had an issue with them. I'm guessing the combat was built with consoles/controllers in mind. The combat is stiff, for sure, but it's not difficult. One exception is arrows. I know that they are trying to simulate...

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection (confirmed)

    I fired this up finally last night.. geez the audio is terrible. Is it really like this for everyone? Everything is muffled and muddy... it sounds like I'm under water. Loud things like gunshots and explosions are the worst. A gunshot is probably 25% of the volume of anything else going on...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Surely you are fucking with me? Maybe you should read what you are linking. The second half of the FIRST SENTENCE... "...held a worldwide survey of PC gamers from the 3.5 million Wccftech site visitors that resulted in 4,477 responses to 26 questions in October 2019" Tell me again who failed...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I'm not sure I'd call 4500 wccftech users the best source for ascertaining Nvidias sales. Nvidia having a 55% market share seems low, but saying 27% of that market share is RTX parts sounds crazy high. I'd call the steam hardware survey a substacially more realistic source. For January 2020...

    Atari E.T. Video Game From the Alamogordo NM Landfill Dig

    Technically not the same. That's a retail copy, not one that made it into the landfill. I do think a landfill copy is more collectible, but this guy is insane to think it's worth over a mil. There are two more on Ebay right now: $100k -...

    ZOTAC Gaming GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti AMP REFURB $809.99

    I've been watching this card for a few days, but haven't pulled the trigger largely due to the same comments people are making here. Even new, this SKU is pretty poorly rated because of a high failure rate. Seems like it's got a fundamental flaw somewhere. $800 is a lot to be out if it craps out...

    ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $999.99

    The type R is also double the horsepower yeah? And obviously improved in many other aspects beyond just performance. If a 2080ti doubled performance, I'd be fine with the price. And Corvette vs ferrari... Please dude. Those are drastically different things and you know it. This is dumb. None...

    ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $999.99

    Y'all don't get it. It's not just the price of the card that is in question. It's that it represents a ~30% performance increase over a 1080 Ti, at a 60% price premium. To go off your loose car analogy, It's more like if the asking price of a Honda Civic was $20k, but to get it with a turbo...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    I've had a lot of memorable GPUs over the years, but gotta go with the Voodoo3 2000. That started it all. Seeing for the first time the difference between software rendering and gpu rendering... I still remember it after... 25 years? Plus getting to see that sweet 3DFX logo every time you fired...

    ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $999.99

    Per your sig, you have four $2500 GPUs (nevermind other lavish parts). Something tells me your situation is a little different than the average PC gamer... I don't think you really have a dog in this fight. Cruis isn't wrong. Even at $900 people would have called the 2080 Ti expensive, but at...

    This... I think Zotac is selling refurbs for $850 on Ebay and I nearly bought one... but even $850 for a year and half old refurb GPU... thats just too much. Especially on the cusp of the 3000 cards. Unless they are a total flop, I'll likely just end up paying whatever ridiculous price Nvidia...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    It seems to happen after any unexpected shut down. I've only had it happen once, my PC locked up and I did a hard reset. Some drive check thing came up as I was booting, I don't know if it gives the option to skip, but by the time I had noticed it there wasn't one. I don't even know how long it...
