    blu4 got a reaction from lewdicrous in FREE Game at EG and Steam May 10th   
    I made a bot that scans steam for free games and automatically adds them to my profile. gotta have that number of owned games be as big as it can lol.
     
    I checked and it grabbed this so it seems to be working still. Just played it and yeah its just like a demo to get you into the OG game. id pass personally

    Here's the price list for MSI's B550 line-up: (these are in USD, not including tax)

    Image of the top-of-the-line B550 AORUS Master, which comes in at $279:
     
    So basically, B550 is not the replacement for B450 that we necessarily expected? These boards slot in quite a weird price bracket, and with some B550 boards costing similar or even more than their X570 counterparts, these will be quite a hard sell in my opinion, at least at launch prior to any price cuts.
    Take for example the B550 Tomahawk from MSI, at $179 it lacks onboard WiFi, I would assume it will have weaker VRMs, lacks PCI-E 4.0 lanes from the chipset, while being just $20 cheaper than the X570 Tomahawk, which granted isn't out yet for some reason but is a beast of a board from what we've already seen in reviews, and sits at a $200 MSRP.
    Either we'll see discounts on these boards in the first weeks of launch, or we'll probably see an upwards spike in pricing for X570 boards, which already weren't exactly inexpensive.

    blu4 got a reaction from Not So Great Dane in This might be my new build. Should I change something and why?   
    I was doing research on x570 boards and I did not hear good things about that board. idk what others have to say as I have not used it. I think the VRM cooling was subpar compared to others in the same price rage or even lower cost and maybe the VRM was not the best either I forgot exactly.
     
    But I would suggest to get like a gigbyte aorus elite or TUF. maybe see what others say but GL finding a board in stock rn
     
    the rest looks fine to me

    blu4 got a reaction from Arika S in Epicgames   
    I mean you have to ask that to yourself, Do you think you will get $5 worth of enjoyment out of it? or do you think that $5 will give you more joy if you spend it somewhere else?
     
    $5 is pretty cheap for anygame so if the game is good I think its a good price. If yopud rather get it for free and can wait id wait. but if it never goes for free will it still be $5 later? or if it does go free will you be mad that you spent that $5? ask your self this and see.
     
    Personally I only played like 2 hours of TW3, it was fun but not really my game. people say its one of the best open world RPG games.

    blu4 got a reaction from Jasonbas in Bottlenecked????   
    could use a new cpu yes.
     
    when gaming you want the CPU to be lower than the GPU, if the CPU runs higher or 100% and the GPU is not its a bottleneck
    You want the GPU running higher than the CPU (load wise)
     
    atleast I think thats the way it works. Its been a few years since Ive had to explain that.

    blu4 got a reaction from brdy in Is it worth upgrading.....   
    If I was in your shoes id get a whole new rig im not sure how good that GPU is maybe someone else can say that
    I think it would bet better to get on the current gen systems. especially for 144hz

    blu4 got a reaction from marmour in first time build help   
    ah thanks for that info. Maybe its fine then. But I think if you have the money to future proof as much as you can why not? I see he has a $80 board so maybe hes just doing budget build. but the future will thank him big time

    I got it for free on like humble or steam or something so I played serious sam 3. I really only played it because my friend asked if I had it and he wanted to play it with me. I didn't even know I had it when he asked but I did. It was a fun time

    Less about age and more about experience. I bet those "boomers" are probably better at taxes and driving than you are simply because they have more experience.
