    Is this a good PC?

    I've had no issues with AROUS X470 boards. Have installed three of them with 0 issues. Overall decent build with the exception of PSU IMO.

    First PC Build In 5 Years - Your Thoughts?

    If you can wait a couple months I would go with something within the Ryzen 3000 series. There are some significant IPC improvements and increased core count should help greatly in both gaming and adobe premiere. The pricing structure will also help you save a good chunk of change you could use to get an NVME for your OS.
  3. Load up Diablo 2 or Starcraft on it. GG
  4. I honestly hated Battle Royale games, but Apex certainly offers a large amount of fun. I knew well in advance most cosmetics would be locked behind a paywall, but most of the people that I have been playing with in the game openly talk about how much they have bought as if it was an achievement.
  5. I agree with you that companies do vary from each platform sometimes, but UE4 does natively support DXR.

    AMD Radeon VII Benchmark/Launch Mega Thread

    Most 2080s are more expensive than 700 dollars. Some models go as high as 900 USD.
  7. You talk about greed yet you pirate video games. Maybe you should take some of the money you saved by pirating and screwing over the Dev's who made the game you stole... and go buy some better PC hardware?

    Electronic Arts Stocks Takes A Nosedive Again

    No. WoW is the MMO that is dead after countless poor decisions from Activision-Blizzard. As of August 31, 2018... FFXIV had 14 Million Active subscriptions. The MMO genre is not dead, people are just tired of WoW because Blizzard continued to take out things that should of been obtainable in the game and put it on the blizzard store. (Mounts,Pets,ETC). The game also has been a complete shitshow the last 5-6 years which lead to a massive player drop off. Simply put, make a game that makes your customer want to quit their job over. Microtransactions and shitty gameplay experiences do not keep players loyal. Don't make your game political (BF5).
  9. As if RTX is a feature worth paying for at this point... It is used in all of two games tops?

    Is Corsair SCREWING their partners?

    I don't recall this. What was the scam about?

    AMD CPUs in school desktops

    Based on the type of applications you are using then Ryzen will be the better bet. The cost/performance of Ryzen is what makes it such a competitive product.
  12. Wait for sure. The upcoming 3000 series is looking quite impressive so far based on the leaks.
  13. I had an issue where a recent windows update that had installed in the background broke the default microphone settings on my headsets adapter in the sound/microphone properties. See if a windows update recently downloaded, could be a pointer to why your microphone is not working anymore. The date will just help if it's possibly a windows update related issue.
  14. Are you by chance on Windows 10?
  15. Could of just googled it...
