    Would upgrading from a Xeon 1620 v2 to a 1650 v2 or 2667 v2 help with gaming? Here's a good list of all the CPUs that should work. Additionally, you could also try the 1680v2 but that's pricier. However it has an unlocked multiplier...

    Does any of the 3070 have dvi port?

    Another option to look at is the Apple A1306 Dual-Link DVI to MiniDP adapter + MiniDP to DP adapter if you can find one used. These are active adapters designed for the 30" Cinema Displays they used to sell.

    I have the 2TB version of this. Purchased in Jan 2020 while in Japan. Finally got around to installing it last week - already dead. Opened laptop from sleep, all my icons and such in start were missing, etc. Rebooted, infinite automatic repair loop. Put original Samsung PM961 back into laptop to...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    I just ended up picking up another X5650 for 8 shipped on eBay. Going to throw it on the last X58 mobo I have that still has an i7. lol It's getting crazy how dirt cheap the lower models are becoming. I wish the higher X5680/5690 would creep down in price tho for my Dell T5500.

    *Rare* Black Dreamcast Broadband Adapter

    I've seen these a few times now in game shops in Tokyo for around 35,000 yen to 45,000 yen. The black one was made for some of the special edition Dreamcasts that were sold there in Japan. I ended up getting a BBA with a Dreamcast at a Hard-Off for 7000 yen. I gave the Dreamcast to a friend...

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    How would this compare against a Samsung PM981 (I think the retail variant is 970 EVO Plus) I picked up a 1TB PM981 from eBay for 100 + 7 in shipping. While it was a steal, I'm curious about this one too for future builds. (I also picked up 4x256GB PM981 from the same seller for another 100...

    Rant: Bought a GPU wasn't told it was smoked around.

    This. I bought a GTX1070 Founders Edition that smelt of smoke when I went to Japan last year from a used shop. (Got it for around 160 USD because of this) Took it all apart, hot soapy water and then blue shower to the entire cooler and all the components, then hosed the board down multiple...

    On an i7 970. Is $200 for an i7 990x worth the price?

    If you really want an unlocked multiplier, pick up a W3680 Xeon CPU. It's the same exact thing as the i7 980X. W3690 is i7 990X. W3680 is around 45, W3690 is around 70.

    Would you buy open box?

    I've bought an open box Huawei Watch before from a 3rd party Amazon seller. Came in the original packaging and was in brand new condition. Saved well over 100 compared to new.

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

    Do you know of any smaller ones that have all this? 55" is a bit much for me personally, haha. I don't think they say too much about it because they want to sell you those ultrawide gaming monitors they make too. ;)

    What Should I Do WIth My Old Stuff After Upgrading?

    You could always try selling them. There may be people who have coolers or whatever for those cards. I'm one of them. I bought a long while back a junk lot on eBay of 4 760Ti (OEM 670s). 2 didn't work at all with one looking like it went through an ocean and the other catching on fire on the...

    Graphic card recommendation request for Ivy Bridge system (2012)

    A GPU is usually attached via a 16-lane PCIExpress connector. Using the mini PCIe connector where the WiFi card came out is a 1-lane PCIe connector. There isn't that huge of a difference with a lot of cards because the 16-lanes at 500MB/s per lane is still plenty, unless you start to move into...

    High Capacity SSD as primary drive

    I use an NVMe drive for my boot drive, some games and all my applications. 4x480GB SSD in RAID0 for Steam Library, 6x8TB RAID10 for mass media storage. SSD RAID only gets about 950MB/s but that's because it's a Marvell RAID controller on I believe a 2X PCIe link.

    EVGA B-stock GeForce GTX 970 FTW GAMING ACX 2.0 $90 plus shipping

    Their website is so bad. I tried to buy some of those 400w white PSUs for 10 a piece. Kept giving me an error to go back after entering shipping address, no matter what. Tried making new accounts, different PCs, different web browsers, clearing history + cookies, nada. :|

    NES Classic on Amazon

    Not to mention the SNES comes with 2 controllers. Good fucking luck finding a 2nd NES classic controller from Nintendo. Seems like they only made 1 for every 10 or something.

    Crossfire on Dell Precision Tx500 series workstation?

    The T3500 PSU is 500-someodd watt, T5500 is 875w, T7500 is 1100w. I picked up a T7500 PSU and harness for 35 a few weeks ago... I'll try shoehorning it into my T5500 and let you guys know how it works out w/ pictures when I get home from my business trip. Additionally, you could pick up a...

    Not that I've noticed, but I usually have headphones on and this is sitting on the floor next to a Mac Pro underneath my desk. Could always go for Noctuas. I used 80mm Arctic cooling ones I got off Amazon in a 4 or 5 pack.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    One thing I could recommend to you is to mount 2 80mm fans in the back to help exhaust the air out. I did that with mine (Dual X5660, 96GB RAM, Radeon 6970), it helped bring the temps down a bit.

    EVGA removes guest RMA *Update: Both USA & Europe removed guest RMA. Harder to check warranty now.

    He never actually had the card in his hands for starters. Should have waited until he actually had it in hand. Then he also threw a big temper tantrum in the thread because as far as the seller could see, his payment didn't go through, he relisted it and it sold to another person.

    Crossfire on Dell Precision Tx500 series workstation?

    AFAIK, there is no licensing/certification limit like SLI. I believe if you put the CF bridge on them, it'd be golden. I'd test it for you with some of my cards and my T5500 but I won't be home for another month since I'm on an extended business trip.

    Switch to Sprint offers FREE Year of Unlimited Data.

    I considered this for about 30 seconds, then realized I'd rather have a working phone all the time then saving the cash, especially since I travel. Still on Verizon's grandfathered unlimited data plan. That unlimited 4G LTE tether.
