    Researching GPU's for gaming PC build between ( EVGA 3080 Ti 12GB vs. MSI Suprim 3080 Ti 12GB )

    As an owner of an EVGA RTX 3080 10GB, the only drawback is the heat during load on the GPU. With 100 % fan curve (yea its loud), it still reaches 82 degrees. Other than that, it's a good card for the price. My older 1070 and 2080 never got passed 70 degrees with 65% fan curve, so I was a...

    New OEM Windows 11 Key still salvageable?

    I'm in the process of installing Windows 7 then upgrading to Windows 10 through Media Creation tool. This is exactly how I did it with my 2 rigs. I honestly thought that stuff was over and Microsoft didn't offer the free upgrade anymore and that's why I bought a copy. Thanks alot...

    New OEM Windows 11 Key still salvageable?

    Windows 11 was actually installed, but it was upgraded from windows 10 in that free upgrade last year through TPM 2.0 bypass. This is my moms rig that I handed down to 6 years ago. Today, I tried to install the OEM DVD version fresh install of W11 that I bought and got the message "Can't run...

    New OEM Windows 11 Key still salvageable?

    Long story short, I tried to install a newly bought OEM Windows 11 on an older rig for family member but it didn't meet requirements. I just typed it in when asked to do so during installation and got this message. Is the key still salvageable for a new install on new MB, Processsor and RAM or...

    [H] got sued by Infinity Phantom Gaming? Circa 2004

    Old news, but stumbled upon this old Screensavers episode that states [H] got sued by Infinium Gaming? I was a [H] Lurker back then and watched the Screensavers in the XP time period, so I was just watching it for nostalgia purposes. Any old [H] members remember that incident? What ever...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Same here. I wen't from ATI AIW Vi/Vo 32mb to TI4400 and was shocked at how much performance I gained. I was also surprised at how much the performance gained from switching to 6800gt oc from Ti4400. Good times. When the 8800gtx/Vista came out. I stopped pc gaming for around 5 years and got...

    Sniper Elite 4. First time playing the series, and I was expecting a COD type of shooter. But turns out to be a stealth game and better than I expected. I might try out Sniper Elite 3 afterwards. What series do you guys like better? Sniper Elite or Sniper Ghost Warrior. I have all the...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Been playing older street fighter games on mame and those games are fun as hell still, of course with an arcade joystick. I also switched up to Ultra SF 4 and SFV and the gameplay speed in those games are slow as hell. The newer SF games aren't bad, but I prefer older Capcom fighters.

    My first recording with a go pro. Just bought a hero 6 couple days ago and it''s alot better than my android phone I was using which has a 30 minute recording limitation. Still tinkering with the settings but glad I bought it on sale. The only thing I don't like about it is how the software...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Last Light was a really good game. More fun than I expected and enjoyed it more than 2033 also. Are you going to play Exodus? Go on a Metro Marathon. It's only fitting.

    Metro: Last Light Discussion

    I had a pretty good experience in Last Light. Didn't take me too long to complete the whole campaign. Around 10-12 hours IIRC. The length of Exodus is what kinda scares me from starting it. I'm not ready for a 25 hour campaign, so I'll just save it for another time when I'm in the mood...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Splinter Cell Blacklist. I could never finish the game close to the end, so giving it another shot from the beginning. I'm not too optimistic about beating it though. Alot of hair pulling and rage in some parts.
