    Anyone else excited for RX 5950XT?

    Am I naive for being excited about AMD making a go for high end graphics again? I am still rocking an old r295x2 that I bought for $500 back in 2014 and have been waiting for a good excuse to upgrade for years - amazing that it's taken so long - so long, in fact that I probably need a whole...

    Ha! I just saw that 15 minutes ago - had a feeling that's what you were posting about.

    Neat! Good to know that stuff is out there. Probably would do the trick nicely. Got any other broken controllers around? Because of my kids' reckless ways with their Xbox controllers, I now have six around the house and two of them are just for parts - I just cannibalize old controllers when...

    MSI GL65 9SD

    It should be quite a bit faster but before you start unloading hardware, I would recommend having some extended gaming sessions on it with your favorite games. A lot of laptops are specced out for gaming but can't handle heat well enough for actual real-world gaming. You're probably ok but I...

    want to cause a traffic jam? use a smartphone!

    You could also just use your smartphone while driving and cause an accident - that would work. Is that art now too?

    Car advice? Durable, comfortable, 4wd

    if you add homely to that list of requirements, yeah, subaru is the most economical and reliable option for AWD cars and they have good resale. Avoid mitsubishi. I am looking forward to the 2021 RAV4 plugin-hybrid though - has enough electric miles to get me into town and back every day, with...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Thanks - I do wish the predator had dropped the 2.5 bay and lengthened the battery - battery life is not super, i see. Ive been watching the youtube videos since I posted and they're glowing about the value though - used to avoid acer laptops... Also just realized it may be awkward using it in...

    Tesla Truck ??? what do people think

    I'd buy it. I think people will get used to it. Current specs say it can go 400km while towing 7500 lbs - pretty goof if true....

    Whats your latest purchase?

    I just spent two weeks obsessively shopping all the sales on laptops and catching up on new components and finally after watching so many decent sales come and go, I ended up paying regular price for one and it's giving me anxiety! Laptops are exhausting! I probably didn't end up with the best...

    Which is the best keyboard to buy for gaming purpose?

    I haven't been keeping up on gaming keyboards lately but a couple of years ago I bought a razer blackwidow chroma keyboard and it drives me crazy with the clicky sound of the keyboard when I type. Before I bought it, I didn't realize that would be a concern for me but I wish I had shopped for...

    Jaysus - that's a long warranty coverage! I never even consider buying warranties on electronics - maybe I should.
