    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    I dont want to support a trash developer though... its the same reason I refuse to jump into micro transactions unless its a smaller developer that has gone above and beyond to make something that people thoroughly enjoy. If consoles/console games seamlessly supported keyboard and mouse (and...

    Games that should be revived...

    Ya Ive played both. I played the crap out of both actually. My first gaming obsession was probably Dune 2... I remember playing it as a young kid. The Dune universe is pretty interesting... which they would come out with some good games.

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    At 2k, you likely bought 1k worth of crap you didnt need if you are talking strictly gaming. I get this argument from people all the time that need a stupid expensive CPU cooler, the best processor money can buy, the best graphics card, gigantic SSDs, 32gb of ram, etc. Either way, games are...

    [H]OT MSI MECH OC Radeon RX 5700 269.99 In Store @BestBuy CLEARANCE. (YMMV)

    Got someone to check the shelf in CA, finally said it's that price. Came to my local store and now they won't price match... lol big waste of time for me.

    Man I just called both in little rock again and they said they are not on sale 🤷‍♂️😭 My local store will price match them.

    [H]OT MSI MECH OC Radeon RX 5700 269.99 In Store @BestBuy CLEARANCE. (YMMV)

    Which store? I called all of them in little rock. I'll go buy one today.

    [H]OT MSI MECH OC Radeon RX 5700 269.99 In Store @BestBuy CLEARANCE. (YMMV)

    Deal appears to be dead. Called a bunch more BestBuys and some even say $323.

    [H]OT MSI MECH OC Radeon RX 5700 269.99 In Store @BestBuy CLEARANCE. (YMMV)

    Local BestBuy to me doesnt have it. I would probably go buy it right now if they did. Edit: Ive called like 5 or 6 BestBuys (including the ones mentioned in this post) because my local store said they would price match the other stores but all of them have it listed at $329.99... ???

    Why do inexpensive highly reviewed "good" headsets all have trash mics?

    Like, fully blind? Never really thought about blind people using the internet. How do you navigate forums?

    Why do inexpensive highly reviewed "good" headsets all have trash mics?

    I'm currently on a military training base so I'm likely going to sell my headphones without a loss and move to something better. I almost bought Sennheiser for Christmas but Cloud reviews are generally very positive and the ones I listened to in-store were nice. Couldn't have anticipated how...

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    I use to get black screens with my R9 290... and just about every computer I built for friends for a year would get them too. I lived in Japan when they came out and we could buy them below MSRP because a store in Akihabara sold them at MSRP but the yen rate was in my favor quite a bit. I jumped...

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    A lot of the issues Ive seen when googling are from people that barely know what overclocking is.

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    A buddy of mine just bought a 5700XT and has odd issues where he has to hard reset his system. Basically the signal coming out of the video card crashes or something and isn't able to recover. He has notifications in event viewer about drivers crashing.

    Why do inexpensive highly reviewed "good" headsets all have trash mics?

    Bought a Kingston HyperX Cloud... fixed the mic issue by literally making my own mic. Anyway... only sort of fixed it. Now I realize there is also an issue internal to the headset where sound bleeds over from the headset output to the mic input. You can find people talking about this issue...

    The Biggest FPS In The World Is Becoming A Movie

    I feel like the world shouldve moved on past Counterstrike a while ago. I played it for roughly ten years starting with the alpha mod for the original half life before it was even its own game... maybe people are still playing because they are limited to a Geforce 4 ti4200 and 1024x768.

    ASRock revenues to rise on increased shipments with AMD chipsets

    Ive pretty much exclusively used Asrock boards since Abit died. I have never once even thought, "Wow, this bios is a pain to update". Where are these hoops? Are they next to the button that installs the bios for you?

    Thinking of going pfsense + WiFi6 access point...

    My router is a weird bastard child that doesnt support it. Last I looked there is a workaround for the version of my router I have, but a lot of people reported bricking their router. I may try it anyway and use it as an excuse to buy a new one if it dies.

    Thinking of going pfsense + WiFi6 access point...

    It just seems like consumer oriented wireless routers have always given me issues in one way or another. Right now with my Tplink the 5ghz band is basically unusable because it randomly seems to crash/restart the 5ghz whenever it starts to actually have any type of meaningful traffic. Ive read...

    Thinking of going pfsense + WiFi6 access point...

    Ive been on the edge of upgrading my wireless router for going on two years. Currently rocking a mid-end TPlink router (cant remember model off the top of my head) but its just not cutting it anymore. Ive got a home server with tons of storage that feeds video to Roku/Plex devices and my current...

    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    Huh.... you would rather pay over $100 extra for the same thing with a feature set that is basically unusable? I have exactly zero interest in ray tracing and I do not personally know a single person that does. If that feature set came with no performance hit then sure, I wouldn’t mind it, but I...

    Thermalright, where did the go?

    Call me crazy, but couldn’t you possibly make one pretty simply or modify an existing one? I have a similar cooler with a similar mounting system and will be making my own bracket to mount it once I upgrade to Ryzen in the not so distant future. I remember rocking the SLK900u and thinking how...

    Microsoft’s new Edge Chromium browser launches on Windows and macOS

    Not gonna lie... Ive been using the new Edge for all of thirty minutes and its pretty solid as far as the speed. A few websites I frequent scroll smoother and pages seem to load faster. The fact that it pulled everything from Chrome makes it so easy to switch over that I may just daily it for a...

    WTB decent PCIe SATA card w/ 4 or more ports

    I figure someone has something laying around they aren't using. I havent kept up with any of these things in a while so I may be just as well off ordering a cheapie on Amazon. I dont need any hardware raid functions. Just need to add a few hard drives to my home media server.

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    The Cloud headsets are pretty highly rated. It's hard for me to get behind general reviews/popular opinion. It's like trusting a random dude that can't change his oil to tell you what kind of car to buy. My issue is that I'm a "bang for the buck" kind of guy. I don't think you always get what...

    The Decline (not the death) of Gaming

    COD basically ruined the modern FPS in my opinion. Before they started pumping them out along with a new Battlefield revamp every year... we seemed to be getting unique interesting shooters regularly I distinctly remember watching an interview with someone that was developing a hyper realistic...

    I collect Laserdiscs. I have probably 35-40 of the best movies that game out during that time period. I have them in record frames on my wall

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    I spent probably three hours installing different drivers and screwing with settings. Took about 30 minutes to swap out the mic. Im not sure how something mass produced like this can have such a terrible microphone... Googling shows its a widespread issue.

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    Jeez. The microphone is so bad. Modified my microphone and replaced the actual microphone with an Audio Technica ATR4600. Works 1000x better. Ive had this mic sitting in a box for at least 7 years. I used it with a carputer I built back in the day and havent touched it since. Mic in the...

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    Just realized my motherboard has a built in headphone amp if you plug into the front port. Headphones are an acceptable volume level now but it still just doesnt sound right. Will probably order the amp just for giggles since its so cheap. The microphone is pretty bad too. The reviews are...

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    So far, my Kingston headset feels really quiet. Im updating drivers and going to mess with some stuff, but the volume level alone makes me want to sell them on Facebook marketplace.

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    Ordered the Cloud 1 - got them for like $34 lol. I struggled between the Cloud 1 and 2 because the 2 apparently has a better mic, but some reviews say the 7.1 stuff is just junk?

    Best bang for the buck gaming headset? Less than $100

    I bought a Madkatz Freq 5 off someone here at Hardforum years ago. It ended up being my favorite headset Ive ever owned... the mic mute button and removable mic is a big plus. Ive been using them a long time and they are finally falling apart (4+ years). Im looking at something like the Razer...

    Warm? $299 Motile laptop (Walmart) 14" Ryzen 5, 8gb, 256 SSD, upgradable ram w/NVME

    I specifically didnt buy that one because the screen was junk. How much did it set you back to upgrade it?
