    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    I wanted a 6800XT, but couldn't get one. So I bought the 3080 today. I was disappointed that I couldn't get the AMD GPU, because I wanted a full AMD built because of nostalgia I guess. I totally forgot the fact that my monitor is one of the older Gsync monitors that doesn't support Freesync, so...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I went to Micro Center on Friday at 7am and I was 16th in line. I was able to get a RX6800. They didn't have any RX6800 XT in stock. I actually wanted a 5900X and a 6800XT, but ended up with 5800X and 6800. I haven't installed them yet because I need to water cool the GPU and I don't want to...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    20 minutes ago the EVGA FTW3 Ultra 3080 was in stock on Amazon for like 1ms... Got a notification that it is available and immediately tried to put in into my cart... OOS What a joke!

    You know.... I thought I wanted a 3080. But. If AMD comes through with stock...

    I still rock my 1080ti... I guess that was the best purchase I've ever made. I was even able to get one during the mining craze in 2017 for MSRP. But to be honest, I finally want something new, not because the 1080ti is too slow, but it's just time. I also was a little hyped about the 3080, but...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I think for the next 2 years, a 8 core CPU should be the sweet spot for gaming. I wanted also the 12 core, but really thought about it and came to the conclusion that it won't bring me any real benefit. If you really need more cores in the future, you can just buy a new CPU down the road. JUst...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    same happened to me. That's why i tried Microcenter and they had stuff, I was just too late for the 5900X. So it is not really a paper launch. Maybe we will get more stock soon.
