  1. yep, I'm also waiting for the 3080ti, lets hope the rumours are true about the 3xxx series.
  2. Here is Dr. Lisa Su's "massive" 3 screens of performance. I don't think FreeSync was enabled
  3. The less propriety tech in consoles and the use of more mainstream hardware like the Xbox One does, the easier it is for Devs. I believe the next Xbox and PS5 continue that trend. My understanding is the new Xbox (formally Scarlett) will be x86, have an SSD and more RAM. Three things Devs should really be able to utilise better, than previous generations. I would love a new Crysis game, I always liked them and It was a good way to test my rig.
  4. I wonder what the SSD options will be? Will it be user upgradeable? How big? I won't upgrade my TV until this comes out, because the variable refresh rate on the XBOX SX could be a game changer. Wait to see if TV's support it. It would be nice if MS and Sony team up on the Variable refresh rate and use the same standard otherwise this could cause some issues
  5. In terms of future proofing the one component that probably gets the closet to really get that title would be a high end PSU. I have a Corsair AX1200i in my current rig and that is more than enough for now and the future, the high end PSU's often have 10 year warranty's as well. So I guess if you buy a high end PSU with a 10 year warranty and more wattage than needed you could in fact future proof your PC for at least 10 years. Although 10 years in tech is an eternity, just look at mobile phones from 10 years ago compared to now, wow.
  6. Got a decent price for this beast of a PSU for my new 2020 rig. Threadripper here I come
  7. It seems the AMD 3970X is a good upgrade from my Intel 3970X ...... $3200AUD is somewhat justifiable as I don't upgrade my PC that often. The 3990X is going to be interesting though, I wonder if it will be another 3900X/3950X situation in relation to heat and power. imma just put this here cause its probably accurate.
  8. The badges look great and have been handed out in record time, I thought it was going to take at least a week or two after the event finished. I hope to see all the same people and maybe more for the BOINC event whenever that is going to take place.
  9. I was 39 and thinking this the entire time while holding on for dear life. I bought two RTX 2080Ti's before the event started and gee wiz did they make a difference, not sure where I would've ended up without them. I will continue to 100million points then swap to BOINC and get that to 100million. The billion point badge looks great.
  10. A brush, cloth and MetroVac DataVac ESD Safe Electric Duster ED-500ESD.
  11. PSP, i think it did alright. I had one for a little bit, mainly used for media instead of games. PS Vita was more of failure than the PSP, I don't really remember any notable games besides FIFA, and that's on all consoles. The higher price for the console didn't deter me. The 1st gen units had amazing OLED screen. I still play fifa on it every so often. The memory card situation was such a stupid decision. It should have used micro SD cards instead of Sony's propitiatory cards. This, plus the higher unit cost and poor selection of games really made it hard to take off. Also the user interface I found to be quite annoying.
  12. I'm getting the feeling 3rd gen TR might be getting delayed, has there been a decent leak on mobo's yet? November launch isn't that far away.
  13. 1) Used hardware isn't your enemy. Once it's in your system it's a used product, doesn't matter if it was in somebody else's rig before yours. 2) Some may argue otherwise but always go for a PSU that is better than what you need currently. 3) Mistakes happen, learn from them. 4) Build in a short time frame, a week or two. Anything longer and your just going to be disappointed because better hardware comes out, prices drops/sales and you start to overthink or change your build.
