About Me

  1. So I’ve had my current keyboard for over a decade, but I wanna make the switch to mechanical. I’m pretty much in the dark about them. i don’t want to spend crazy, preferably under $100.
  2. LIQIANG Computer Case, ATX Game Case, Tank Shape, Support E-ATX Motherboard https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08K2NJ6C8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_PQw.Fb7B3C66X?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 What in the ever-loving F. @stepee, will this be your next case? @Mr.Vic20 ? @Zaku3? @cusideabelincoln?
  3. Currently running a 7700k at 4.8 and a 28080S , felling like my CPU is starting to hold me back. I am currently running 1440p at higher frame rate and would like to keep it that way. Maybe 5600x or 10600k would help any suggestions?
  4. My current rig has an i7 4790k with a 1060 6gb with 16gb ram. I'm gonna be refreshing this best buy page trying to get a gigabyte 3060ti oc. I'm wondering if the i7 4790k would hold things back enough to where the gpu upgrade wouldnt be worth it. If i can get atleast very high settings without my 4790k bringing my fps down below 60 at 1080p, im gonna buy this gpu if i can. I will upgrade the cpu, mobo, ram later on. Just thinking if my cpu is enough for very high settings staying above 60...
  5. I'm just buying one and plugging it into a Raspberry Pi to put it on my network--I just want a place to dump stuff that would be annoying but not an actual problem to lose if the drive shits the bed--but I know people buy these and harvest the drives as NAS drives. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-easystore-14tb-external-usb-3-0-hard-drive-black/6425303.p?skuId=6425303
  6. I’ve got an Asus Maximus Hero VII she was expensive. $300. She’s still good, but it’s older and doesn’t accept anything but LGA1150 chips. I have an i5 4670k and it’s no point in spending $200 to get a 4770k or 4790k. May as well, get a new mobo. Any suggestions? Not trying to break the bank. But it’s getting time for a new mobo
  7. I'm looking for something decent and dirt cheap to replace my lame 1.5 GB RAM GTX 660 until I can do a serious system upgrade... any suggestions?
  8. @Mr.Vic20 Probably already has this setup for his master bathroom!
  9. I am a bit of a klutz when it comes to my discs so I decided to start ripping my blu rays. Finally started over the weekend. Got myself an 8TB seagate HD to back everything up to. Now to tear my house apart to find all my blu rays and DVDs.
  10. I updated my nVidia drivers yesterday to the latest ones for my 970 and now I'm getting nasty screen tearing in the middle of the screen while scrolling long webpages. Turning off smooth scrolling in Firefox seems to help some but not fix it. Forcing vsync to be on doesn't seem to be doing it. Anyone have any ideas?
  11. For the first time since 2011, (almost 10 years ) I'm building a gaming PC. My Steam backlog is still huge but I hope to be able to join you all for some shenanigans in some new games very soon. My system: CPU - Ryzen 3900x Cooler - Noctua NH-C14S Mobo - MSI Meg x570 Unify GPU - ZOTAC Geforce GTX 1650 Super 4 GB RAM - 32 GB DDR4 PC3200 SSD - 1 TB 970 Samsung Evo NVMe PSU - Corsair RMX850x, 80+ Gold I kind of went "light" on the GPU assuming that I would be upgrading that once the new Ampere cards are cheaper and I've worked thr
  12. https://wccftech.com/intel-xe-hpg-gaming-gpus-tsmcs-6nm-process-node/ I also noticed recently that RDNA 3 (Navi 3) from AMD is rumored to be a chiplet design. Remember this has never been done before with gaming GPUs because windows can't see more than one GPU as a single GPU and we know how bad SLI and crossfire suck. Has that changed or am I misunderstanding what they're talking about?
  13. Just would like to hear some opinions on this. I have a gaming pc with a 2080 super on the way and I'm not sure whether I should hook it up to my monitor or my TV. What do you guys think?
  14. Nvidia Corp. is in advanced talks to acquire Arm Ltd., the chip designer owned by SoftBank Group Corp., according to people familiar with the matter.
  15. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-announces-delay-to-7nm-processors-now-one-year-behind-expectations https://seekingalpha.com/amp/news/3594717-seven-downgrades-far-for-intel-post-earnings-shares-slump-13 https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-07-23/intel-process-delay-sparks-44-billion-swing-in-chipmaker-values ^Over $25 billion in market cap was erased, right after NVIDIA stole the crown for the largest market cap of any chipmaker. Both AMD and TSMC enjoyed some nice little gains as a result of Intel's earnings announcement. One inter
  16. When I first got this USB 3.0 wifi adapter for my desktop, it was working great. Lately I've been having weird speed issues: if I do a fast.com speed test, I'll hit the expected ~200 Mbps speed for my connection, then it'll stay there for a couple of seconds, then it'll plummet down the 60-100 Mbps range and give a final score somewhere around that range. Rebooting the computer seems to temporarily but not permanently fix this. I'm pretty sure it's not the router or the internet connection because my phone does fine on fast.com speed tests while this is happening on my computer. And I just tri
  17. Friend of mine wants to setup a complete audio system for his house with in-ceiling speakers, touchscreen monitor in kitchen for song selections, maybe phone access and/or a monitor in one other room, probably a remote. He asked for my help because I'm the nerd friend. My current skill set/job is networking and camera installation, and he's a very skilled carpenter, money isn't an object as he wants it done perfectly to his tastes. I've done speaker setups before too a receiver for a living room setup, but not something like this. I've also worked in homes that have the insanely expensive smar
