    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    I'm also considering jumping to a 6600xt or 6700xt. So, WTT? V64 ref, late production run, excellent undervolter, never OCD and under 2k hours game time at~120-160w typically. Spent a year off and unused while I was overseas. Yet to clean dust out it's due I'd assume so will do for buyer.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    1 system, ten years. Sataball? ToW (when you can't get FPS working on a horrible old FPS engine) is still nowhere to be found, two years after being a 'quick job for a 6 man team' that 'wouldn't take resources away from game development', after a failed playtest. It has now been (drumroll)...

    Worst possible microphone

    Lmao! Even better results when you put the ear buds/crappy Mic under a thick, woolen blanket. Source: I recorded some black metal songs back in the earlier aeons.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Have a new q90 55" at my flat, pity it doesn't have Dp or I'd give it a hoon for y'all.

    Players found cheating in Call of Duty games may now find themselves banned from the entire franchise, including all previous games and future titles

    This is like how Camomo admins rust servers. Screw up once, even on your alt, you're gone if they see you cheated in past.

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    Lol does anyone actually care about w11? Aside from the few $MSFT holders here? I'm still not on w10, so can safely say the next rig will be Linux and if I can't emulate and somehow need this cancerous malware of an O$, it'll be a dual boot.

    Ford and Purdue develop new EV charging cables

    Fracking is cuddly until a pipe casing goes and the toxic muck or oil gets into your ground water. Are you Steve/Mixedgas?

    Never played F.Fantasy. Where to start?

    Oooh, not heard much of ff9 let alone from someone who prefers FF8, thanks for the heads up. Slowly chipping away at FF7 remake and enjoying the fresh take, i'd love to see re-done art for ff7 and 8 one day. And agreed the FF8 story is quite a ride, I also find it very captivating.

    Never played F.Fantasy. Where to start?

    Lot of people love ff8 as well. I found the story more relatable and plausible than ff7, as with most character modeling. Very relaxing. The soundtrack is probably the best of the lot, too.

    Outdated game mechanics.

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    Only if it's not graded by certain 'people' at WATA while being re-sold constantly to the owner at Auction every few years to inflate the price and create a speculative bubble market.

    500TB in silica glass about the size of CD.

    Un-doped YAG yes but the rest usually isn't as the doped stuff can have some pretty colours in large boules. Rarest one I've held was cerium doped, just the end bit was ~20k usd haha, fluro yellowy colour with the slightest light on it, thanks to one of the FLIR lads ;) Have also spent a lot of...

    Latest GPU Market Sales Indicate that NVIDIA Indeed Halted RTX 30 Series Production

    Why would they stockpile if the issue is over-production? Honestly I don't see them stopping production, maybe certain models only.

    LHR for current gen cards are a horrible idea

    Lol I basically read in this thread "It's okay guys, mining is exempt from electron migration and our cards are worth more than ex-gaming cards because we know tech". The crypto cult is strong lol.

    AMD shows off 3.0 GHz Barcelona with 3x2900 XT?

    nice job History did repeat. Unfortunately for Intel they just played the Presshot 3.0GHz and have another few years of purgatory to go.
