    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:

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    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. =)

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    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...

    World of Warcraft Classic

    I remember when World of Warcraft was about to be released. Some of the Blizz devs would hop on IRC to chat. Was supper hyped about it. On released date, never got the game as planned. I still have not played it. Not sure what has been the brick wall but someday I will have to give it a swing.

    Snoop Dogg thread

    I have not watched the videos but I could see this catching on. Actor / actress / popular celebrity: "So you are telling me I could potentially make money playing video games?" I guess we will have to find out if this starts becoming a thing =).

    Anyone else love their old case?

    I have used my cooler master 912 for many years. It has been a great case and I still use it for random builds here and there. However, there are a few things that I like the newer cases for: 1. Behind motherboard usability. 2. Power supply at the bottom of the case 3. Design to allow better...

    why would miner sabotage ETH?

    Bottom line, these are some pretty crazy times. I am hoping the Eth "powers to be" take into consideration the current infrastructure and how their changes may impact the system. However, I think it would behoove the Miners to start looking forward to see how their business opportunities may...

    Anyone employ a delayed purchase method for games?

    I also second Stellaris. However, if you value your social life, I would think twice :p. Me: 10:30 PM: Just need to play a little longer. Me: 3:30 AM: Man, should really get to bed. Just need to play a little longer. Me: 6:30 AM: Welp......Poo.
