    HTPC - no more?

    i Don't bother buying Blu-ray if i never want to see it again - start with Amazon rentals, then go buy the disc after you enjoy it TWO positives for media library 1. because then your can re-watch it an unlimited amount of times., all at zero extra cost/ clumsiness of setting-up and...

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    its got way worse efficiency/watt than the entire RDNA 2 lineup. that means if it not idle, your fan is moving a ton more air (or it uses a larger hunk of metal)

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    its going to take years before the stability is fully fixed, but at least performance should be a lot better in a year but in that same time-frame, NVIDIA will release the replacement for Ada. So kinds wasting their time here

    The state of gaming (really has me bummed out)

    when the vast majority of those games already run at 1440p 90-120 native,what's the point of aiming higher? you have the benefit of having a flexible PC, bit in the end of the day. you're still playing UN-optimized console ports!

    The state of gaming (really has me bummed out)

    its hard to justify an upgrade when your video card is nearly as fast as a high-end console ( and has the same CPU) i cant tell the difference between 1440p upscale-ed and 4k native on my lg b7 65, so I'm hurting on my htpc running a 1060 6gb, but its not absolutely killing me not having rt

    Portal with RTX

    hey look , yet another game that slows down to 15 fps on medium rt at 720p. when I enable rt o my1060! of course, the 3050 is still 50 bucks above msrp, one year after launch; its going to be 2025 before I can pick up a cheap used rt card from everyone favorite neighborhood mining agent ( even...

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    or he could just run 1440p 120hz up-scaled on that lg TV (remember when they added that? it looks identical to native 4k for most games!) quit pretending like this such a fucking gargantuan UPGRADE THAT ITS COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE!@

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    The higher the power consumption,the higher the chance of coil whine - but on the flip-side,a well-constructed set of inductor stays can bring a smile to any 450w party!

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    this right here - you may end-up GPU-limited in several games, but everything else will look fantastic the CPU could limit you, but if you're already running a 1440p gsync monitor (Assuming 144 hz at-least on a gsync monitor), tit should Run exactly the same!

    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    I think the dpi of 1440p at 27 inch is fine on the plus side, this should lower the 120 hz models to well-below $500

    Can an individual SATA port die on the MB?

    if its the same drive, make sure by using an sata to USB adapter - if it still fails, its the drive

    HTPC - no more?

    absolutely, but IO finally found a cheap upgrade for my 6-year-old 960 2gb (1060 3gb), so I'll have a lot more options for new steam games on by b7 over the holiday season! but I use the PC to record live TV and run universal media center (the b7 can handle both that and my entire media...
