    AMD shows off 3.0 GHz Barcelona with 3x2900 XT?

    Yes, because raising prices to objectively wrong levels is sure to curb demand....................... this comment aged like an open can of sardines :(

    Uses for an old system?? Asus Z77 / 2600k

    Definitely, you could sell the 1080Ti and buy a 1050ti and still have enough power to play some regular games too. Nintendo and playstation seem to have really stable emulators. I use PCSX/PCSX2 for playstation, and Dolphin/Project64 for nintendo.

    Uses for an old system?? Asus Z77 / 2600k

    Very true, though if push came to shove I have successfully modified the drivers in the past to work with windows 10 and we had no issues at all. though that might have been for a 3rd gen CPU, I forget. Do you have buddies that come over to game? Maybe keep the machine setup as a...

    Windows 11 God Mode

    *ACKSHUALLY* You used to be able to right click the networking icon in the system tray, and easily access network and sharing center (In versions before W10), M$ removed that feature from 10 and now you would either need to go through the control panel, or the new network settings application...

    New Holiday Build - Proxmox, Plex, Storage Server - Input Requested

    What are your use cases? Is this just for home/personal stuff? How many VMs total are you planning on running? How important is performance vs cost for you? Why does your server need a GPU? Depending on the answers to the above questions, you could save a couple grand and go with an LGA2011...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Ill be honest and say I think we have different views on new vs used. A car with 40K miles is new to me, I think the lowest mileage car i have ever owned was 120K, and if by "certified pre-owned" you mean you went to a stealership to buy them, thats an additional cost I wont pay either. I only...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Because you can buy another car with a working transmission for less than the $6000 it would have cost for whatever model car you have. Stop buying expensive cars, and you wont have expensive repair bills.

    What's a computer?

    Yes, but.... I had it explained to me once and I can sort of see where she was coming from. Some people dont understand the concept of a "system", where you need to follow a series of "logical" steps in order to achieve a result. This concept isnt limited to just computers either, its why IT...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    My point was that driving cars with all the electronic BS just makes it less enjoyable to drive, things like traction control can cut power to the engine when you arent anticipating it and you can wind up in some sketchy situations. You cant electrically limit my throttle to 20% when its a...

    Games are lagging with new setup, please help :(

    Excellent! So you got a better board and your DPC latency issues are gone, thats a good ending to this whole ordeal.

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Right, but they dont: "It's when your throttle is physically connected to your foot and not the internet." Your throttle body is physically connected via cable to your gas pedal, you dont need to calibrate the pedal to know 0% through 100%, and you can prove that youre getting 100% throttle...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    Thats actually not correct. Ever driven a car that has 'boost by gear"? Or a car that thinks brake vectoring is somehow a replacment for a real LSD?
