    OT: PS5 free, but there's a catch!

    Ahh well, I should say, it isn't in most places, and even in that situation, it's pretty situationally specific. Involuntary manslaughter in a very public case. Definitely wouldn't fly in Tennessee lol, but you can get someone on involuntary manslaughter for basically anything, if there's...

    OT: PS5 free, but there's a catch!

    What on earth makes you think that? It's not illegal to tell someone to kill themselves, let alone invite them to the option. Not illegal to jump out of a plane, or hell, go to the doctor (which considering the malpractice related death numbers in this country, is significantly riskier) either...

    OT: PS5 free, but there's a catch!

    Hah yeah, I mean, I didn't think anyone was taking it seriously, but it's pretty funny, especially in the matter-of-factness of the wording.

    Riding on the Success of the M1, Apple Readies 32-core Chip for High-end Macs

    Apples products being highly curated, do usually offer good value bang-for-buck at release, but their extremely firm pricing schemes, which rarely offer meaningful sales, or reduce prices as the product iteration ages, usually means that they're a piss-poor value outside of the initial release...

    OT: PS5 free, but there's a catch!

    No offense intended, but you clearly know very little about Tennessee if you're making this assumption, in fact, anybody I know that is from there, or has lived there, would assume the opposite. :dead: I live very close to TN in Western NC, my mountain property is 5 miles from the NC/TN border...

    Huge availability coming in mid December and January - Source: GamerMeld

    Hah, here's an idea for a Nic Cage movie, worthy of his current film-star status, and inspired by a previous role!

    Huge availability coming in mid December and January - Source: GamerMeld

    Yeah I'd have to agree. He's learned lately to layer on like 3 stages of disclaimers and vaguery to cover his ass, speaking in the least committal terms, but the moment one of the infinite options he lays out as a possibility comes true, he wastes no time or effort patting himself on the back...

    How long do you trust your PSU?

    I just had a Seasonic X650 Gold modular PSU which I purchased new in Nov 2012 crap out on me. Turns out it's what was causing me to have issues with my other 1080ti, which I thought was dead (it's fine), ran fine for a while without that card in it, but finally heard a pop and saw the magic...

    AW3821DW (Nov 2020) with GSync Ultimate

    Ahh gotcha, thanks for explaining it, I definitely haven't been keeping up with this stuff lately!

    scalpers starting to return cards LOL

    Yeah it's really pretty damn simple, the moment most people refuse to pay over retail for newly released products, regardless of the source, but especially scalpers, is the moment this stops being an issue. Everyone just has to sit out a few releases and be patient. Sure it'll continue on some...

    AW3821DW (Nov 2020) with GSync Ultimate

    Wait but this does have HDR right? Can any of you guys summarize the differences other than size, and if any of you are coming from an AW3418DW, how you feel about the upgrade? Thinking about replacing mine but not sure which route I wanna go. Considering one of the oled cx tv's but I've been...

    The Slowing Growth of vRam in Games

    Yeah, it's a valid opinion, and I certainly considered it. My animosity toward the mediocre iterative performance increase, coupled with the vram just made it a non-starter for me. I can handle turning down a few settings I don't even appreciate, but I *never* will be ok hitting a vram ceiling...

    The Slowing Growth of vRam in Games

    Yeah but in the console space it's not just a question of the vram limit, but a synergy between that, and the rest of the performance "box" they have to work within to maintain frames, especially at higher resolutions. Just because there's X-amount more of this resource, doesn't mean utilizing...
