    Damn... Just kinda looking around at parts and MAN am I frustrated with motherboards. I know this has been complained about to death, but what is with motherboard design??? It's like they're appealing to 12 year olds... With 200$ motherboards. So I guess PC building is geared towards rich kids.

    Fucking. Yuck.

    Gonna try to take an internet vacation for a week or two or more even, I just need a break from it all. Maybe it's just to prove to myself that I haven't become dependent on the internet, but I dunno. Just tired of the mindless scrolling and video consumption.
     
    Wish me luck.

    It's funny, as soon as we come out of the dark ages of CPUs (years and years of quad cores), we enter the dark ages of GPUs. Well actually, it's been dark for a while because of mining prices, but seeing MSRPs so high just makes me feel genuinely sad. And keep in mind, we haven't exactly been buying GPUs at MSRP lately.
     
    It's getting harder and harder to recommend PC gaming to people. The days of "faster and cheaper than consoles" are dead. Also, with new GPUs costing so much, I can see eBay prices raising already.
     
    Let's just hope team red or blue can do something about it, but I mean, is it gonna be too little too late? And my hopes for AMD being competitive with Nvidia are pretty much dead. Hell, even when AMD does have a competitive product, they don't sell, so it just seems hopeless. I also can't believe people are acting hyped about this new generation. I mean come on, 600$ for a fucking 2070? We waited two years for THAT? The 980ti's MSRP was only 50$ higher than that. Let's just say you have a lot of money and you don't care about price, well how short sighted.
     
    Everything else (besides RAM pricing) is moving forward, you can get a 250GB SSD for less than 50$, a 500GB SSD for 80$, a 8 core CPU for less than 300$ (when that cost 1000$ just a couple years ago), a really capable APU for 80$, etc. But with graphics being so expensive, it makes that progress mean a lot less. We've gone nowhere. All that money you're saving elsewhere will be burned on buying your 500 DOLLAR MID RANGE GPU.
     
    Welp, wake me up in 2020.
     
    To help put it in perspective, here's a brief history of MSRP over recent years. (According to Wikipedia.)
     
    2013
    770: $399
    780: $649
    780ti: $699
     
    2014
    970: $329
    980: $549
    980ti: $649
     
    2016
    1070: $379
    1080: $549
    1080ti: $699
     
    2018
    2070: $499 ($599 for the FE)
    2080: $699 ($799 for the FE)
    2080ti: $999 ($1200 for the FE!)
     
    Want a bigger slap in the face? In 2007, the 9800gt cost 250$. Fucking. Ow. Member' when people were outraged at the 1000$ Titan? Those were the days apparently.
     
    Hate to be so negative, but that's just how I feel right now. I didn't expect prices to come down, the MSRPs were just fine as they were, but price INCREASES? Just come on.

    Soo... Scored a Asus R510c laptop for 5$! Works 100%, all I had to do was slip in an SSD and some more RAM I already had (which wasn't necessary, I just wanted to). So I've got a 2.5ghz i5 with hyperthreading, 8GB of RAM, Intel HD 4000 graphics (fine for what I need in a laptop) and a 120GB SSD all in a nice slim little laptop. It is so quiet and runs so cool. I'm so fucking happy right now!!!

    Damn, I guess I'm not allowed to make fun of Ajit Pai. This was a short clip I edited of Idubbbz where I just edited Ajit's face onto idubbbz, I've posted content a thousand times worse than this on my channel and never had a video removed for "bad content".
     

     
    Isn't that some bullshit. I appealed it, but somehow I doubt that it'll be fixed.

    Okay I can definitely see now why people want 144hz monitors so bad. I just "overclocked" my Samsung 1080p panel to 75hz from 60hz and damn just that little bit makes a very noticeable difference. After two hours of gameplay I switched back to 60hz and holy shit it looked so choppy. It's like going down to 45 fps when I was used to 60.
