    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    $50 and $20 VT2000 dock (meh but still more than $50) 500gb SATA 2.5" SSD (not too bad and again more than $20) And of course, data vault...I have a few drives sitting on my desk. MIGHT be useful, probably not. Sad I didn't get a video card or a VT2000 but no overly disappointed.

    Should I Upgrade from 6600 XT to 6750 XT?

    I just picked up a 6750xt for my wife's machine to replace her 3060...for 400 at Microcenter. That was too good to pass up. Prices will fall but that was a solid win.

    EVGA 3090 FTW3 $980 - Microcenter (in store only)

    I love mine...but I paid twice that.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (Epic Store 09/01- 09/08)

    I really liked the "extra" in Shadow. It only added to the story. The history of a place that is known to have existed in history but is not found yet today. So all the mythology based on some level of history just sucked me in. History nerd, so maybe that's why I enjoyed it. ;)

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (Epic Store 09/01- 09/08)

    The first was by far the best, but the last gets a bad rap. It was better than it was criticized.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (Epic Store 09/01- 09/08)

    Great game. I get that some didn't like that the puzzles were "simpler" than the other games, but man I loved the story and art in this game. If you haven't played take advantage of it.

    What are you playing on your deck?

    Picked up Spider-Man Remastered and other than a few weird glitches after a few hours of play....which oddly is the same issue I have with God of War, it plays beautifully! Both those games seem to hang and/or slow down for a 10-15 seconds after a few hours of continuous play, then they are...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    So many games...I have done more gaming aside from MMO stuff since I got my Deck than in a long time. Thought I'd play more platformers but ended playing more AAA titles. Guardians of the Galaxy (finished off last 3 chapters I've been sitting on for ages then deleted) Mass Effect Legendary...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Got mine Sunday (512gb model) and absolutely loving it. Got Epic working on it. Got Final Fantasy 7 Remake working! Very surprised how well games work at high quality. Framerates in 40-50fps range easily and since I mostly single play on it that's fine for me. Got a skin off etsy...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    That's some serious sleuthing! Based on that I must be pretty close then! Anticipation builds!

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    I'm still (im)patiently waiting. I got mine ordered in first 30 min, and still Q2. No date shenanigans with mine thankfully. 512gb order though so already know they are fewer on manufacture but I can hope that I get my email 4/4 right?

    Core i7-5960X 5930K 5820K Overclocking & Performance @ [H]

    I just sold my old 5820k/x99 build. A friend's kid wanted a cheaper than new gaming machine and I had it sitting in it's box no idea what to do with it. This teen got basically a full system (minus case) with a 980ti and he's loving every minute of gaming with his dad now.

    RTX 3090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Leaderboard 3080ti with a very mild overclock with a stock 10850k on windows 11, from upgrade from 10, which was upgrade from 8.1. Not clean in the least bit.

    Who ran Haswell-E for a long time or is still running it?

    I ran 5280k at 4.4 at 1.275v from release until March this year when I got a Microcenter deal on a 10850k that I couldn't resist or I'd still be on it. Right now it's sitting in a box until I figure out what I want to do with it.
