    Amazon - SK hynix Platinum P41 PCIe NVMe Gen4 M.2 2280 Internal SSD 1TB ($102) and 2TB ($170)

    Just picked one up for my GE76 laptop. This is a no brainer. One of the top gen 4 ssd's on the market. I was waiting on a deal on the WD Black SN850X 2tb but more than happy with this.

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Received my 512GB model yesterday from FedEx. FedEx just left it on my porch and didn't even require a signature. I had to rush home on my lunch break to get it in the house before prying eyes would take it. The box even had a label with Steam Deck 512gb clearly on there. It was shipped out of...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Damn my max budget was $2K. Now at this price I can't wait. Currently on a Dell AW3418DW which has served me well for the last 4 years. I think it's time for an upgrade.

    HP Reverb G2

    I was able to compare my G2 to my cousin's Quest 2 over the weekend. We both notice the G2's slightly better resolution. They both have similar sweet spots. The Quest 2 is wireless and has gesture control. The Quest 2 is a very good VR headset especially at the 128gb's price point. I just don't...

    Battlefield 2042

    Cancel my preorder but I've got EA Play so I jumped on yesterday and played for an hour. What a mess this game is. I was in the hover craft and started on the US side hit one of the snow peaks on the snow map and my hovercraft went flying. I flew all the way to the bottom of the map and killed a...

    $600 conundrum, 1080ti vs 3060

    If you're on top of things you can get a 3060/3060Ti at a reasonable deal. Picked up a Zotac Twin Edge OC 3060Ti from Amazon for my son. He's upgrading from a 1080Ti and it was a noticeable upgrade. I got the 3060Ti for $400 after taxes- brand new. I was shocked myself. The 1080Ti has served us...

    Battlefield 2042

    RunningSim 2042 is more like it from what I played in the beta.

    Battlefield 2042

    Not a fan of the specialist system. Just cancel my pre-order. Feels like DICE/EA is trying to hard to be another COD or Apex Legends clone. I'm staying away from this game for now. Will wait till it hits the bargain bin.

    so i finally won a newegg shuffle but lolz at the msrp

    I was lucky enough to get my 3080 from NewEgg back in November of 2020. Got it in a bundle with a shitty Asrock mobo. Was able to send the mobo back for a refund. Now and days NewEgg will not allow partial returns of any bundles- must return the whole bundle. Newegg is now own by some Chinese...

    Dedicated sound card or onboard sound

    Currently using an ASUS STXII with upgraded OpAmps for my desktop. I use a SoundBlaster X3 with my gaming laptop on the go. I've always been a proponent of soundcards. I was pleasantly surprised by the X3 for it's price point. I ordered a Sennheiser GSX1000 to compare to the X3 and hands down...

    Battlefield 2042

    I put a few hours in and I personally feel like the beta map is too big. Feels like I'm playing a running simulator. Can't find any enemies and just running around looking for someone to shoot. Game looks great but I didn't have any fun. I had some high expectations but left kind of...

    300-400 dollars budget x570 or x570s mainboard advice..

    I highly suggest the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. My son's been on the Master for the last year and it's a very stable motherboard. He started off with a 3700X and upgraded to the 5900X running a 3060Ti. No issues and very good VRM's.
