    Your reaction if Nintendo went third party.

    In regards to the OP, I would be in the camp of really not caring, and also sad at the same time. I can fully admit I view Nintendo with rose-tinted glasses. In my opinion, they aren't what I grew up with (SNES) any longer, and haven't been past the GameCube. I don't care for a lot of...

    Notebook Review and Forums closing 1/31/2022

    I just had to quote this because 110% agree. Those things were absolute monsters, and the new 77## and 75## lines haven't held a candle to them since. Especially since the removal of the e-port! Dear God the TB and WD gen docks of the last 4+ years just plain suck on top of it, our engineers...

    Remember when stores had shelves like this

    I still have quite a few of my old boxes stashed away in my closet (hl2 orange box, diablo 2 + LOD, etc) and now that you mention it, I kind of would like to display them alongside my current retro collection. My cousin passed away almost a year ago, and my aunt actually kept all the original...

    Which monitor manufacture is good?

    I'd second this LG display, it's the same one I run: (older pic, but there she is) Owned it right around 1 year or so and it really does check almost all my boxes. Pro's: IPS Panel (coming from a Dell S2716DGR, it's a world of difference) 165hz ("OC'd" from the factory control panel on the...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    I took PTO for that back in the day and man did that bite me in the rear. Sure glad I didn't this time around...

    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    I'll have my 18 year badge here in ~4 months. CS 1.6 is what forced me to download it after quite a long time of 1.4(at least, I was really young) and 1.5.

    NVidia announces Grace

    This was my exact thought when I saw it. We have a BU in our company that was looking to get into ML a few months ago, so I got to do a lot of reading up on the matter, and my first thought was they can't be happy having to use an EPYC into that DGX box. We settled on a proof of concept build...

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    Ization5150 I absolutely am. Convinced a co-worker to also get one and he's also loving it. The only thing I wish it did had was true gsync vs the gsync compatible. There were a few situations in CP2077 where the frames fell below the gsync threshold (around 45-48 fps if I remember right)...

    HP purchases HyperX from Kingston

    Bummer to hear it gave you issues so quickly. I've beat the crap out of my Cloud II's and they continue to work. I've lost them off my head mowing the lawn so many times (hat + headphones when I do, I forget to duck low enough and clip them), dropped them on concrete, LAN trips, they live in...

    Evga 3080 xcs Display Port numbering?

    Easiest way to tell is plug in multiple monitors and see which one your BIOS/POST displays on. On Quadro's they do number the ports (really hard to tell, the engraving is tiny, but they are there) but I don't recall my 3080 having those ports marked. If they did, Like criccio said, I don't...

    EVGA Queue Discussion

    I didn't want to post this is the official thread, since it's more of a discussion around the EVGA queue and not screenshots. To preface this thought, I'm guilty of doing exactly what I'm about to mention below. I myself have signed up for all 3 variations of the EVGA 3060Ti for my GF's rig...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s first major update coming in the next 10 days

    That they do, each update seems to break it for me (modded and not). I'm only using it to respawn iconic items I thought I didn't need... luckily found out early if you scrap or sell you're SOL... re-added them, and then added them to my stash. Also, really seeing 0 benefit from this 1.1 patch...
