  1. The GMMK is a keyboard that is either pre-built or barebones made by PC Gaming Race. If you want something plug and play though, that's totally fair. It's a great keyboard as far as reviews indicate though enthusiasts will probably disagree. If you go that route, there are two versions. MX Speed switches are similar to Cherry MX Reds but with a higher actuation point. There is an optical-mechanical version too which on average should be more reliable/durable to prolonged use than the Cherry MX Speed variant.
  2. Most people prefer linear switches for gaming from what I've seen but go for whatever you prefer. At that budget, I'd suggest building your own but that's nearly impossible on Amazon because a lot of the parts are niche. I like this choice personally. I have a GMMK Compact with Kailh Box Jade switches (kind of similar to MX Blue/Green) and Razer PBT Doubleshot keycaps and I really enjoy it so far. Amazon doesn't have the barebones models except for the Compact, so everything else they have is fully built. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8YNJH0/ If you like the 60% class layou
  3. If anyone has a Vega 56 they're interested in selling, I'm interested in buying.

      I too love having no eardrums.

      What are eardrums?

      I'm going to 3D print a bracket to run an Asetek cooler on the card and I may try to make a duct to use the reference blower fan for VRM cooling.

  4. console pleb /s As much as I'm full into PC at this point, the Xbox Series S does look pretty compelling given the price/performance. Maybe if Forza and other Xbox titles I'm interested in were still exclusive, I'd bother. I tried just for shits to preorder the PS5, but Best Buy was a complete mess of a site and I never saw the preorder button.

    It's still crazy to me that George made the transition from internet edgelord memester to legit musician.

  6. That's fair, I don't view both on an equal level of importance, obviously restricting access to a life-saving item is definitely worse.
  7. It's like that prick who hoarded all the hand sanitizer just to try to scalp it online, then got banned by eBay and Amazon and got guilt tripped into giving it away. (Just to clarify, I don't look at the RTX 3080 as being on an equal level of importance as an actual life-saving item. I was one of the people this morning fighting at the chance to get an RTX 3080. Had I lost out honestly to other people who wanted to buy the card to game on, I could accept that and move on. But what pisses me off so much is that they're just the shittiest lot of unapologetic sweaty fucks who resorted

      Nice RTX 3080 in your profile.

       

      Got any pics? :^)

  9. On one hand, selling my GTX 1080 was kind of sad. It was the best GPU I ever owned and used it for over three years. But on the other hand, I haven't been this excited for a new piece of hardware in that long of a time. The RTX 3080 is going to rip, and I have a coupon from Best Buy so I should be able to get it for $630 at launch which is insane. It'll be the most expensive piece of hardware I've ever purchased by a long shot. I know launch day purchasing isn't the best decision, but between a good return policy and the ability to make a little money if I decided to sell it, I'm okay with it. Hopefully my GTX 1080's new owner enjoys it.


    Man I'm just really excited.

  10. The card will function in your setup just fine. As for playing games at 4K60 it's going to depend on the game, but most games become more GPU-bound as resolution increases anyways. The 5930K is still a reasonably capable chip despite its' age (so long as you overclock it a bit, it is still 22nm Intel after all.)
  11. I really can't say it matters anymore. Game developers aren't optimizing for it like they were years ago, so at best it's a one-trick pony for benchmarks. The negatives from SLI (micro-stuttering, high power consumption, etc.) outweighed the lone positive of slightly better price/performance, and PSUs are really expensive now anyways. I agree with how old SLI systems really looked unique (I had one myself), but it just doesn't make any sense anymore. You might get better performance in some games, but the vast majority of games will either have marginally better performance, no change or
  12.  

    Assuming NVIDIA's slides aren't heavily biased, RTX 3000 is going to sell like nothing we've seen before. After being annoyed by what I thought was poor value on the part of RTX 2000 series cards, I'm heavily considering upgrading to an RTX 3070 given it performs around the same (or better) than an RTX 2080 Ti. Absolutely insane.

      It'll be interesting to see how broadly that performance gain is seen, or if it's just a few games that they hand picked seeing those kind of results.

      I find it odd that reviewers didn't have the card to get reviews out right after the presentation.

       

  13. Full system specs? Also did you just install the card? I would suggest turning off your system, making sure your GPU is seated properly and clearing your motherboard's CMOS (keep in mind this will default all of your BIOS settings.) If your system has an iGPU, it's possible that it's outputting from that.
