    New Egg is a ripoff

    I am also a bit annoyed at the combo deals, but I think your argument may not be completely sound. Flashlights during a blackout is essential in many regards. High end video card is neither essential or necessary. I just checked and they do sell $3.99 flashlights. However, if those prices go up...

    Nvidia shortage to last most of 2021

    It is interesting how things have changed. From a sales perspective, this would be a stellar year for them. Husband: "Honey, I won the new egg Shuffle!" Wife:"Great! What did you win?" Husband: "Sit down for this one.....I get the chance to buy a video card" WIfe:".......Great......"

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    In indianapolis indiana, we had some pretty large Lan Parties. In high school , my personal lan parties started as 5-10 people. However, as it progressed, my parents actually moved all the furniture out of the house into the garage and we hosted (if memory serves me right) around 40 people. We...

    And how traumatizing it was to lay your head down on the sofa cushion that had been sat on for 24 hours :LOL:

    It use to be for the low latency and network performance, now you can get that where ever you are as long as you have broad band. However, you can never replace gaming in the same room as other people and the fun that is had with that. =)

    Its true. Long gone are the days where we all had to drag our full towers and CRT monitors across town to get a decent ping =). Believe it or not, this is the first time I have heard of a FGC. I will have to look into that.

    Build myself or use a system builder?

    If you have the experience, I would say build for your self. Yes, video cards are hard to come by, but you can build to your taste. Personally, I like a full ATX case and I have certain preferences on how things are laid out. You will likely be limited if you go pre-built.

    I have this on my 9900K and it seems to work fine for the most part. I am not overclocking or anything. I will have to say, this thing is huge. Make sure to take measurements. its height went past the side panel of one of my Micro ATX cases as well as one of my full ATX cases. Lol, I bought 3...
