    Just ordered my wife an RX570 4g to replace an aging and dying GTX 760 (Yes I know but shes a pleb gamer and would never use or need 8gb in the cards life span) for 150$ and it comes with 2 AAA titles for free, 3 to choose from, Division 2, Resident Evil 2, or Devil may Cry 5.. cant go wrong with getting 120$ worth of free game when you only spent 150$ on the card...

    Just before Starling Bank opened my bank account they apparently did a check to see if I was specifically involved in money laundering lmfao.

    It took me up until last year to realize when I see beer cans and little shots in the ditch people are drinking and driving and throw it out the window so they can't get arrested for open bottle law. I always just thought it flew out from a bag of cans or back of truck. It's a lot scarier now

    Excited to be upgrading my Monitor from 1440p/60 to 1440p/144. Trade off is I am going from IPS to a TN panel. But I only really game so the color issues arent really going to bother me much.. I hope.. if they do, this is a monitor that has a color profile on tftcentral so I can always dial it in to help. The monitor is also one of 12 on Nvidias G-Sync/Freesync compatible monitors, so there is that too!! Been seeing lots of screen tearing in BLOPS4 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey so will be nice to try out the VRF technology!

    So tired of all the OMG RTX CARDS... should I GET A 1080ti or 2080TI or BLAH BLAH BLAH... WHO THE F*** CARES!!! Guess what? We dont know how the cards perform. What we do know is that in the past, there have been performance numbers given directly from NVIDIA at the launch/unveiling event that they say shows the gains from previous generations... Guess what? THEY DIDNT HAVE THEM THIS TIME!... Chances are... there is minimal gains and they didnt want to highlight the lack of gains, but focus on the ray tracing aspect being added... 
     
    STOP posting a million and 1 threads asking which card to get and WAIT until September 20th when the NDA likely lifts for reviews of the cards and see what they actually can do before even thinking about asking...

    I know nothing about PSUs and am a sentient robot using the flesh and bones of a scrawny man on the internet to further the Corsair overlords' and shareholders' net worth in the switching power supply market
     
    They pay me in exabytes of server real-estate for my world domination scheme that requires knowing the credit card numbers, social security numbers, credit scores, net worths, take-home incomes, and mother's maiden names of every single human. This information requires a lot of digital storage, but it's worth the always on-call hours that Corsair requires of me.
     
    When I power down every night, I dream of the socialist government where I own all property under the trademark CorsAirBnB and everybody pays me rent, but they get free housing and I know everything about them and gently succ money out of their accounts. Pennies on the dollar, literally, but it all adds up.

    It's the 2GB variant because buying a 1GB card in 2018 is so cringe .
     
    This is for Linux GPU passthrough things btw if that wasn't already clear. I'm using it as my host card since my dank Ryzen 8 core doesn't have an iGPU .
