    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    If there's one thing I've learned about waiting for that "dream" monitor, by the time it comes out you'll want something that can do 8k, 240hz, SHDR, etc etc :oldman:

    What do you do with your old 1TB/2TB drives?

    Interesting, but price wise, you could just get a 4TB USB powered external drive that fits in your pocket for the same money. Add another $50 and you can get an 8TB 3.5" external. Its a sunken cost & effort unless you're putting in 4tb+ drives. I think I'm just going to consolidate any data I...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Overclocked To 5 GHz Across All 16 Cores On LN2

    Considering these boards will need to handle everything from 4 cores to 16, at a point power delivery is going to become an issue if you're overclocking the 16 core part on a mid-tier board. We'll have to wait and see considering the 3950X is so far out, but it doesn't bode well, price wise...

    Most significant upgrade you ever made ?

    That's a really good one! I remember when we moved from where we had dial up and every minute online was counted and expensive and slow AF, forget downloading anything, to suddenly having always-on flat rate cable, it boggled my little mind. Leaving the internet "on" was like leaving the hot...

    Most significant upgrade you ever made ?

    HTC Vive - Hands down, no other computer purchase ever blew my mind like that, if you can call VR an upgrade. Before that though: TNT2 M64 -> Geforce 3 15" 1024x768 LCD -> 20" 1600x1200 LCD A64 3200+ -> Q6600 Spinny HDD -> SSD 2600k -> 3950x :p

    Will the Ryzen 3000 chiplet layout cause heat sink headaches?

    That's kinda the worst case scenario I imagined, since few standard heat sinks worked properly on the threadripper. Looks like neither my NH-D15 or my H115i will be much good here. Not the end of the world, just one more item on the shopping list. (y)

    Will the Ryzen 3000 chiplet layout cause heat sink headaches?

    I was looking at the chiplet layout on the ryzen 3950x: The off-center chiplets got me thinking about heat sink/cold plate orientation and design. Past single chip dies meant concentrated cooling effects in the middle, but with this layout, it looks like some formerly reliable coolers might...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Overclocked To 5 GHz Across All 16 Cores On LN2

    That's really the one that gives me pause. Most development has been so intel-centric that AMD compatibility/performance edge cases are guaranteed to crop up. Yeah, but I dare you to fire up notepad or solitaire, goodbye CPU! Bet you wish you'd waited for the 3950x, you could pause SOOOOO many...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Overclocked To 5 GHz Across All 16 Cores On LN2

    A someone who's been waiting since the 2600k for a worthy upgrade, and slowly realizing that an overpriced intel chip is going to be my only option, this is the miracle I was hoping for. I'm a sucker for whole numbers and hitting that 5.0, but when it comes to reliable clocks and acceptable...

    If you have horrible input lag, enable frame limiter and vsync in the game options and set your in game res to "@60" refresh.

    Why do Browsers allow ad blockers to work?

    Probably because not that many people use them in the grand scheme of things, and the ones that do are savvy enough to switch browsers for the option. So they'd rather you block ads from their browser than from their competing browsers. Also; Enjoy ad free youtube while you can.

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    More homes have VR now than ever before in history, I think that's a trend that will continue to grow. Now that you can get a kits for well for under $1k it's in the realm of the "consumer market". To me it looks like a matter of display technology finally catching up and making home VR a...

    Nvidia SUPER Refresh: Faster 2060, 2070, 2080, Faster GDDR6 and $100 Off

    Is there any source/proof of that, or is it conjecture? Looked to me like the 20 series was priced the same price:performance value as the 10 series because no competition, and the 2080Ti was your only option at the top, so nvidia made a killing by jacking up prices.

    Looking for ideas to split one PC between two rooms (144hz & VR)

    Thanks for the ideas. It looks like the reality of sending high bandwidth video signals 40ft precludes any simple workarounds. But in the face of a $3k build, a few hundred bucks towards the necessary cables is pretty feasible. I'm thinking of putting the PC somewhere in the middle, as far from...

    Looking for ideas to split one PC between two rooms (144hz & VR)

    Right now I have one rig in my office (multi-monitor setup with a DP 144hz primary display) and a second VR rig in the living room. This is only because I had enough spare parts to build a second capable machine. I'm planning to do a new build soon and looking for ways to use the new machine...

    AMD Announces Ryzen 7 3700X, 3800X and Ryzen 9 3900X

    Oh man, I haven't been this excited about a CPU launch in YEARS! 12 cores at 4.6 out of the box, bet it can do 5.0 pretty easy. For $500??? Crazy. The last AMD CPU I bought was an A64. Can't wait for reviews and to sport AMD parts again!

    Zen2/Navi conference in August, So no Zen2 till then?

    Think about this; Since the inception of 1st gen Core i3/5/7 chips in 2008, up to the 8th gen in 2017, the flagship Intel SKUs remained at 4 cores. They had little to no competition until Zen in 2017 when they finally notched up to 6 cores for 7th gen and suddenly 8 cores for 9th gen flagship...

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    I think it should be stressed that the choice between 4k60hz and 1440p144hz depends largely on the type of games you're playing. FPS and other shooters benefit greatly from higher refresh rates and a more "connected" reticle, but RPG and RTS fans will probably appreciate the extra detail in a 4k...

    Do you unplug your liquid cooled PC when it is off?

    You don't? I like the extra peace of mind that my place isn't going to flood while I'm on vacation. I've started unplugging most of my electronics too, it's a worth while precaution to me, along with locking my doors and windows. (y)

    do new games suck or am I cynical?

    This was the hardest part for me, watching the very series' that defined gaming for me when I was growing up, be put through a grinder and mutilated for the sake of a quick buck. You become bitter and jaded, you learn not to fall in love with any franchise or studio. I think Half-Life is the...

    do new games suck or am I cynical?

    I'd say it's more that "New games with big marketing budgets suck". I think a lot of AAA devs have put profit before fun, so not only do they suck but they're in your face everywhere and you feel like you're surrounded by rehashed garbage. If you want more genuine games you need to look at...

    how much faster are current gen Intel CPUs than my i7-3930K clock for clock?

    Unless you really need the extra ram/mem channels, I'd ride that thing till the wheels fall off. Otherwise that $200 would be far better spent on a full CPU, MOBO, RAM upgrade. Last I looked the 9700k was about 20% faster than Sandy Bridge clock for clock, but you'll see a much bigger boost...

Thinking back, the only thing I...

    Upgrading from a Maxwell Titan X

    Is the 2080Ti going into your sig rig? It'd be interesting to compare the performance of your new card vs if you'd kept the Titan X and used the funds for a new CPU, MOBO & Ram. Are you playing on 4k or a 120+ Hz monitor?

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    It sounds like the key to buying one of these monitors is to get it from an outlet that provides hassle free returns, odds are 50-50 it'll have a defect or you won't like the light bleed/color vibrance/pixel size.

    ≥32" 4k 144hz in 2019?

    Seeing how many times the 30"+ displays were delayed if you wanted 1440p @ 144hz w/sync I don't see them cranking the 4k's out any time soon. Even if they could technically do it, the timing & demand isn't right for 4k 144hz. I think the major manufacturers are waiting on the next gen console...
