    Keeping this relevant to the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X: Predict price bottom on previous gen flagship CPU (new, commercial purchase) to eek out the last bit of use on a system? Any tips?

    Looking at GTX 4090 upgrade - will an AIO card work in my system with current case and existing 360 AIO

    Hello. I'm looking to upgrade my current 6900XT to a new GTX 4090. In looking at the cards available I'm trying to understand if I can look at any of the AIO cooling based cards like the MSI SUPRIM Liquid X. Here's a link to my original build post from earlier this year. There is a current...

    Ryzen 9 5950X = $499.00 @ Newegg

    Newegg has the Ryzen 9 5950X on sale for $499.00, which is pretty nice if you're looking for an in-socket upgrade. :cool: However, if the leaked benchmarks of the 13600K are accurate, this might not be a stellar deal for folks looking to build a new system from scratch.

    Ryzen 9 5950X @ Newegg - $899.99

    Seems like a pretty decent price, considering it's chronically out of stock. The sale isn't fulfilled by Newegg though, it's a 3rd party seller, so your mileage may vary. Ryzen 9 5950X = $899.99

    Poor GTA V Performance (5950x/6700 XT)

    So I use to play GTA V with my old pc (which is now sold) 2600k / 980 TI / 16GB RAM and got around 50-60 fps with pretty much max settings (lowered AA to 2x, reduced distance slider in the advanced tab but everything else was pretty much maxed including grass on ultra). Now I have a new PC which...
