    Warcraft III: Reforged is the World's Worst User-Reviewed Videogame

    I almost pre-ordered this at the end of 2018. I'm one of those people that wish they would do this with all the huge games. Now I'm not so sure, when they take something that's seemingly so simple and screw it up SO bad. Just give me the SAME GAME, but modernize the...

    Intel Core i9-10900K 10-Core Comet Lake-S Monster CPU Leaks With 5.1GHz Turbo Clock

    Being I missed upgrading through ALL of those generations, I had to go look myself. Pudget had a nice overview of it. Z370 vs Z270: What is the Difference?

    Doom Eternal Release Date, Gameplay Details and Everything Else We Know So Far, Spoilers

    Doom Eternal is over 20 hours long. During our preview demo, we also had a chance to speak with creative director Hugo Martin. He discussed how Doom Eternal is handling difficulty in new ways and how all its elements of combat and exploration come together, but Martin also made mention of the...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I'm hoping the 21:9 aspect keeps growing, it's so satisfying watching movies on it. I usually preview on the PC and then stream it up to the 55" OLED in the living room. Where I have to see disappointing black bars.

    Intel’s High-End 2nd Generation Xe DG2 GPU To Be Based On TSMC’s 7nm Process Node

    No compatible slots in my PC to insert a potato. Not getting my hopes up.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I'm just a little sticker shocked I guess. MSRP on the 34GK950F is $1200 and it's already marked down to $900 on LG's own website. I'd expect this to be $1500 or so, but I guess since it's the only game in town. It was on my list though for upgrading to later this year depending on how...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I already have an LG runs around $800 now. Is this monitor really $1800 (or is that over-inflated new-hotness high-demand pricing)? Did you guys actually pay that? (if u can find it in stock?)

    New Small Business Server suggestions

    So here's the new server that's been purchased and is on the way apparently. I'm really disappointed to see a SINGLE spinner drive for our storage. Image attached. I mean...I don't know what the plan is if that drive dies. I don't know that there is one.

    NEW? Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming, or not? (no box seal?)

    I recently built two computers at work with that board, and can confirm. No seal. It still strikes me as odd EVERY time. I guess they figure because it's such a large component, it's not worth the time to seal the bag up, because the odds of it falling out are essentially zero.

    Doom Eternal Release Date, Gameplay Details and Everything Else We Know So Far, Spoilers

    Playing through Doom 2016 right now. Loving it. Taking forever though, trying to find every little secret and complete all the little challenges. Just wish they'd have some co-op multiplayer so me and the boyz can raise hell together.

    Storage Performance Roundup: Mechanical Disk Drives to PCIe 4.0 SSDs and Everything In Between

    My office mom's old PC took 30-45 minutes to idle desktop. Some old dual core i3 from like 2010-2012ish. *edit* she was using this everyday up until a few months ago or so

    Ripped off on Black Friday

    I've never understood the business model. Nobody wants the 8100 series, that much is clear. Why leave it in the retail channel? Why build so many when all that time/money/production could go into SX8200 Pros, ya know, the drive people actually want. Leave the 8100 behind, pimp it onto the...

    John Wick 4 and Matrix 4 to Release On Same Day

    Got this far down and no one said it yet. Clearly they are the SAME movie guys. John Wick is just a program. I remember thinking this for sure when the hotel guy gave him the 1 hour head start. When he said STOP, and everyone in the scene stopped moving.

    Ask the Experts Question: Should I have a dedicated SSD for games?

    I recently went from 240GB OCZ Vertex3 SSD + 1 TB 7200rpm drive to a 2TB Adata SX8200 Pro NVME. Sure I noticed it was quicker like the first few days, now it's the new normal. So normal that I hated waiting when updating/installing on my boys PC's that I got them each 1TB MX500's to get them...

    Rumor that Socket AM5 to debut with Ryzen 5000

    Yes I'm quoting myself, but I just saw news Intel did it AGAIN. 14nm+++++++++++ Core i9 10900K, 10 core/Z490 Chipset/LGA1200. Coming in April. What a horrible ecosystem.

    Rumor that Socket AM5 to debut with Ryzen 5000

    Yeah, sometimes I don't buy things in pure spite. Intel CPUs is one of those things now. I didn't even sniff at a PC upgrade until AM4 came along. (from a Core 2 Quad Q6600) Still, looking forward to an Nvidia "Ampere"/Intel 10nm rig next year. Should be another worthy bump, although I...

    $799 LG 34GK950F-B 34" 21:9 WQHD 144Hz FreeSync2 - Amazon

    Just noticed in the description. "4 sided virtually borderless design" WTF? lol. I just held the tape measure up..the border is damn near .5" all the way around. Man I hate marketing. Unless my screen image is SEVERELY underscanned, and it's supposed to go ALL the way to edge (the glass does)

    Upgrade Recommendations ? From GTX 1070 to?

    I fully plan on dumping my 5700XT or handing it off to the kids when the new hotness comes out. Now that my boys are gaming (10 and 8) I see every purchase as a $200-$600 coupon off the next big thing. :D Now let's see how many gens I can get before the wife catches on, because I've been lazy...

    AMD RX 5700 XT card is better than a GTX 1080 at ray tracing in new Crytek demo

    I just ran this benchmark at 3440x1440 and got like 3455 (not sure now) and was concerned when I saw how high your scores were. Then I got 7492@1080p Ultra windowed. Why am I scoring higher than you? Ryzen 5 2600, Sapphire Pulse 5700XT. Nothing fancy. 19.11.3 Beta drivers. Looks pretty cool...

    Upgrade Recommendations ? From GTX 1070 to?

    5700/XT or 2070S. I went 1070 --> 5700XT. Hindsight 20/20, bang for the buck, I prolly should have went 5700 flashed to XT, or sprung the extra $75 or so and went 2070S.

    The Mandalorian- new Disney+ Star Wars series

    They already offer a bundle. Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu (basic I assume) for $12.99/month. I'd go for it but Comcast neuters the internet connection and I couldn't stand Hulu when I tried it earlier this year. Way too many channels were only 30fps and sure didn't look 1080p. I don't recall...

    Call of Duty benchmarks?

    I haven't played but a few minutes of the beta, but doesn't that make it feel a little more intense, ala Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers - ish?? You all make it sound as if the game has "devolved" into more realistic urban warfare, which THRILLS ME. SUPPRESSING FIRE. Treat it more like...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    This. I think when I say I can't go back to 60Hz, I mean, I can't go back to 60Hz WITHOUT Adaptive Sync. I don't have a 60Hz monitor WITH adaptive sync to make that judgement though. I just know when I went to a 144Hz monitor, it felt like there was a serious hardware upgrade in my PC, when...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Can. Can I ever go back after being at 144Hz? Don't think so. Going from 10 years at 1920x1200@60Hz to 1920x1080P@144Hz felt like a better upgrade than going from an i5 2300 to a Ryzen 5 2600. (all on a GTX 1070) But yeah, my youngest is still fragging on one of my old HP 24" ZRW whatevers...

    $799 LG 34GK950F-B 34" 21:9 WQHD 144Hz FreeSync2 - Amazon

    I've had mine for a while now, and I honestly never really even noticed it till last night, sitting at the desk NEXT to my monitor, watching my son play Fortnite on it. It was kind of a "oh yeah, that thing is curved" moment. And yeah, besides personal preferences, there really isn't anything...

    Intel 900p Optane ...WOW

    Was researching building a NAS for work, came across this thread and this YouTube video, thought I'd share: Accelerating FreeNAS to 10G w/ Intel Optane 900p Without much tweaking, with the 900p as a cache SSD to 4x4TB spinners, he starts hitting 8Gbps over the network.

    recommend me a M.2 PCI3.0X4 SSD

    Reliable is the wrong word. I think "reliable" is a default attribute when it comes to todays NVME drives. (Speed + Capacity)/Price = Value is what you're looking at, so how much do you want to spend and what performance are you happy with? Also, laptop or desktop? I believe some laptops...

    Call of Duty benchmarks?

    I'll say this - really fishy how CoD:MW launches, and the drivers released by AMD for that (19.10.2 beta) have seemingly fixed the stuttering and frame drops in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. And now my friends list in BO4 is literally ALL on MW. Bought that shiny 5700XT to play what appears now...
