    What would an EVGA 4090 Look Like?

    why would they make any samples to include mock-up, engineer, alpha's etc when all the talk with Nvidia fell through back in April? No Company will waste man hours and a design for something they will not make.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    holy moly! That is some serious ca-ching there! I wonder how much the FE will be. Geez, that is like when the "Concert" was full swing and the prices were absurd!

    Two 1080p monitors in portrait mode anyway to make fullscreen gaming?

    you are going to have that bezel right in the middle splitting the screens. It is going to be painful for any type of FPS or third person shooter.

    Gaming in your 40s

    I have been a long time member here. In my late 40's and i still game but not as much as I used to. I have an issue of "letting go" when in the middle of a game. Prime example, I am now playing No Man's sky... I have clocked in 100+ hours of play and have not advanced the story line much at...

    New Corsair K100 Air - Wireless Low Profile RGB Gaming Keyboard, what are your thoughts?

    I have the K100... i love the optical switches. It looks like the K100Air is not the same optical switch.

    Reason for failed automatic device encryption. TPM not usable. Windows 11 can't install anymore

    If TPM is enabled in bios, you might want to reinitialize the TPM.. if anything was encrypted, it will be gone so be careful. Otherwise, the Mobo will need a warranty replacement AFTER you update TPM firmware.

I was Kongo, and the American (teddy Roosevelt) was just Quick Dram McGraw, good lord did he like war on me. I still need to figure out production (is that the "gold" cog on the...

    adding to McHart port either survive longer and collect more money along with blueprints for the GREAT weapons (anyone got the ARC900?) or the coil rifle II, Flak CannonII and the thermo gun (VII of all). you can use the "credits" to purchase items with traders also (like $ => dark energy) to...

    Everspace out on Steam Early Access

    got it... I burned way to much time on sunday playing this. Fun game. funnier when you are able to get to your dead clones ships when you unlock that upgrade. curse the enemy AI with the Shock Rifles, damn those guys just don't miss!

    I just got this from steam (Early Access) and It reminds me of the old X-wing vs Tie Fighter "feel". lovely graphics, currently supports 3440x1440 and a Nvidia 1060. have some issues with audio popping but man, some of those weapons under AI control are deadly (read enemies with Shock rifle X 2...

    Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G RGB 850W PSU Review @ [H]

    for cases that put the PS facing down. probably better options but for a case like a Thermaltake p5 (which more than likely this was built for), the RGB fan is a nifty idea. The power numbers look ok. hence why my wife got her for her P5 :D

    The future of multi-GPU gaming?

    Man, how did the 3dfx SLI get this messed up? i remember the scaling back in the Vodoo 5000 days (2000ish) that is worked great, now we run into these issues nearly 16 years after the fact. guess no R&D on SLI advancement.

    Doom 4 E3 reveal.

    glad they lightened the color up. with that said, It plays like and has the feeling of Unreal tournament/quake III arena. The cyber demon is in the underworld along with another animal. No. Thankfully the Cyberdemon fight is only against the cyberdemon (playing on Ultra-Violent).

    Best FPS right now?

    Single Player: Doom Current multiplayer: Overwatch. Future: Quake Champion is starting to look very promising. Kind of the twitch type FPS of Unreal Tournament/Quake III Arena. One of the reasons I enjoy Doom, has the same feel/flow. I hate COD/BF games. I did it for real, no need to do it...

    Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Review

    couple months out from the last post... I had the original K70 RGB and now have the K70 RGB RapidFire the first thing I notice, no where near as loud as the orginal K70 RGB. These rapidfire cherry switches FEEL somewhat like membrane keys, perhaps it is because they are more quiet? The other...

    Thinking about getting glass mousepad

    IceMat haven;'t heard that name in a LONG time. I used to have one back in the Razer boomslang days. Worked well with ball mice, horrible for optical. Don't know with the laser/ir mouse how it would hold up.

    AMD Reports 2014 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

    NVIDIA Unveils The Titan X At GDC 2015

    well.. I doubt that Intel/AMD "new" x-license is any different than the old one in terms of section 6.2 and 8.2. They added items but very rarely do items get taken away especially when dealing with those two sections I mentioned. FYI.. Intel tried to leverage 6.2a for breach of...

    NVIDIA Unveils The Titan X At GDC 2015

    ummm you are very aware that the x86 license is intels while the AMD64 is ...... AMD? Right? That IP alone is worth a ton and Intel would not be that idiotic to let someone else scoop that up. Then Intel would be paying the new owners "new" licensing royalties for the AMD64 IP.
