    I think at this point I'm going to skip Turing/Navi. I'm looking for a credible 4K card in the $400-500 range, and for whatever reason I'm holding out hope that the Volta **70 card will be able to hold its own at 4K high/60 on most titles.

    I went hunting for a Raspberry Pi, and instead found a $99 netbook with a Celeron N3350. Oh, and a 1440p IPS screen. I now own several, and I win Christmas.

    I'm looking at upgrades. Specifically, Pixel 2 to iPhone 11, ThinkPad X250 to T495 or X395, GTX 1070 to RX 5700 XT. I have enough in PayPal and Amazon credit to make two of the three happen now...and I'm at a total loss as to which order to go in.

    So there was a guy on Reddit today asking if he could put a highly-anticipated, not-yet-announced product on eBay without repercussions. He was quickly warned off of it, but I just figured I'd ask if it was a custom board RX 5700 XT. To my surprise, he replied that no, it wasn't, but it was something "closely related" being launched "at the same time". He's since deleted everything. Anyone care to guess? My money's on him somehow getting his hands on a sample of the GPU that's going to be one step ahead of the 5700 XT in performance.

    If you see a Lenovo motherboard with a heatsink and proprietary PSU connection sitting on a shelf for $7.50, buy it. It might have a $55 i3-4150 installed.

    My first-ever build that uses only M.2 for storage is done. It's more because cable management in the Enermax Steelwing is a pain in the dick than it was a true desire to go full-on M.2, and now I only have 256GB of space on the whole thing. Guess the Steam library isn't coming over...

    I think I'm done buying new NVIDIA products. This isn't NVIDIA vs. AMD, it's NVIDIA's demonstrated history (especially since Pascal) of screwing its consumers in the ass.
