    Upgrading from 9700K to 12600K/12700K worth it?

    I bought a 7800gt and I distinctly remember a year later it couldn't run Crysis at 800x600 over 15fps. It slogged even in the menus, I was upset I wasted my money rather than getting the cheaper but just about as good x850xtpe. Maybe it was cheaper on AGP? I can't remember. But on the forums...

    FS: Alienware M17 R2 laptop - i7-9750H (6 core/12 thread) - 2070 GTX - 17.3" 144hz - 16G - 512GB

    Yep it's all on the motherboard just like most modern gaming laptops. This has thunderbolt 3 if you want an external GPU down the road.

    I swapped for a Thinkpad for battery life over gaming and don't really use this badboy anymore. It's still pretty lightweight considering its power, it can run any modern game at high settings. It has a few external nicks and shows signs of use but there are no issues with the keyboard...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    5 of the top 10 games (at least today) are shooters. They're still a massive genre, if not the biggest genre still for PC.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Same boat here. Does the current version of the game have playable content for more than 10 hours? I've fired up the game once every few years, and it seems the most basic "instant action" Vanduul Swarm game mode gets worse over time. Is it finally better? If that was the whole game with more...

    Long time Android user to iPhone.

    I love my V60 and it has a very good camera, but it's noticeably inferior compared to the last few late generation iphones some friends have. I do wish it "just worked" like iphones seem to, it drops calls once in a while and apps do crash on occasion. You'd have to pry the wired DAC/Amp away...

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 11?

    I think the answer now is not yet. Aside from the latest hardware, Windows 11 offers very little over 10 especially for older app compatibility issues which will exist for a while.

    Unreal games deal pack = $2.79

    There is a certain enjoyment from playing on dedicated servers outside of matchmaking and a perfectly curated beginner experience. Totally worth $3 for some of the best games ever on PC

    Received a Dead Deck

    Glad to hear even with the troubles Valve does follow through with their warranty in the end. I'm hoping their support stays strong with the popularity of the deck
