    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    Not a total waste. Not everyone wants a jumbo card with a kickstand.

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    1 month is an incredibly tiny amount of time. Call me in about a year. Then, it might be interesting.

    Case selection = SAD!

    IMHO, aluminum cases are pricey... but that's because they really have to have "heft" now for contemporary parts. Steel is better suited from a price and sturdiness perspective. Sure, you can do it with aluminum, it's just more expensive now. YMMV Also, people don't want aluminum, they want...

    Intel i7-13700k vs AMD Ryzen 7900x ?

    While Intel did have a brief gen to gen upgrade without a total replace, historically, AMD has done better. So, it's possible (very) that by going AMD, you may have longer upgrade choices before having to replace your motherboard. If you always buy all components new all the time, then, you...

    2.5 inch HDD NAS drives

    You know, since they are still pretty capacity limited, you might do better with SSD. YMMV.

    It was a joke. I got psuedo flamed for suggesting that it wasn't that big of an issue.

    Hey, nobody's saying you can't game on a 4090. Just if you do, you're going to die. That's all.

    Why are current gen motherboards so expensive?

    Grocery prices were going up a lot pre-pandemic (I'm the grocery shopper in our household). Time will tell of course, but have a feeling you could be wrong. This "temporary" spike has been going on for quite some time, which is why I believe this to be in the same vein as in the past behavior...

    Why are current gen motherboards so expensive?

    Inflation isn't like "scalping". Once prices go up, salaries are (ideally) increased, valuation of currency goes down, but generally speaking, unless it's a temporal spike, prices don't decrease or at least do not decrease by much. Just the way it is.

    Why are current gen motherboards so expensive?

    IMHO, prices have been going up then as well as now. You have to go back a ways...

    Why are current gen motherboards so expensive?

    More power, more options, higher frequencies.... it takes more to build them. And of course, that imaginary word, inflation.

    Isn't it true that all 4 sense "side" lines have to see connect though?
