    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    That’s insane. Just buy something here used. You could also try china if customs fees are expensive (they always fake the hardware’s value)

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    They seem to do this all the time. I think it's just repurposing chips that failed to make the cut for the higher end product. There's always a price premium it seems because they're never produced in very high quantities anyway (5800x was similar on the cpu side). Last gen they probably made a...

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    I'd go for a 6900xt. I think nvidia only makes sense currently at the very high end (4090). People have been selling 6900xt's here for ~$500-550 and you could probably even get a 6950xt from someone who's upgrading soon. You can get a 3080ti at a similar price if you need nvidia features. The...

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

    I wanted better portrait art so I had this made. Turned out a little too anime-ish for my taste but figured I'd share it anyway. Comixbooks, do you know if there's any way to buy the season passes on GOG?

    RX 6800 problem

    I would get this occasionally when my GPU crashed. It should reset it to default clock settings and undo any tweaks you've made. Until you restart though sometimes catalyst control center won't re-open. Not really a big deal, just points to instability (I had this when I was mining and...

    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    That looks slick but I was thinking more something that can slide into a rails if you decide to move it into a rack later. Things like these Silverstone RM42-502 Supermicro CSE-745 (fugly, just an example)

    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    Have you decided on a case yet? There's some cases out there in 4U footprints that can also be rackmounted if you decide on making a server out of it later. sorry for encouraging him, but I miss fun builds like this.

    MicroCenter confirms GeForce RTX 4080 US pricing, from $1200 to $1549

    No. But here's the weird thing to me: Even last gen when they had competitive cards, availability for AMD cards was much better. Is that taking into account the latest drivers for the 3xxx or are they reusing old benchmarks?

    Nintendo's worst mistakes.

    I grew up on the N64 and generally loved it and the games on it. The controller does suck but I didn't care at the time, and more controllers sucked back then. The cartridge vs CD thing is a trade-off but I greatly preferred cartridges despite the price increase. You didn't have to worry about...

    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    Having an unstable work machine is going to cost you more money than the extra performance is worth. The optane drives don't directly connect to any consumer PC parts so you need an adapter for them. The adapters are all kinda janky from what I've seen though, and while a 1 x optane adapter...

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    If you're providing power over the pcie bus from one PSU and the rest of the GPU power over a separate PSU you'll probably kill the card (Source: I may have done this one time).

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    I'll fight you. My least favorite connector ever. (Note: I haven't tried this new nvidia connector) Stole this from the GN video. Calling this user error is crazy. Definitely a bad design.

    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    Don't do it. Save that for the gaming/toy machine. Let us know how the optane performs with those adapters.

    MicroCenter confirms GeForce RTX 4080 US pricing, from $1200 to $1549

    Yeah, the 4080 at $1200 just seems horribly priced. I don't blame nvidia for getting what they can now, but I can't imagine sales being good once the AMD cards come out, unless they drop prices to match.

    RTX 4080: Countdown To Second-Best™

    Those prices are just nuts.
