  1. Depends, do you like the MX518's shape more? Then yes, it is an upgrade. A bigger upgrade would be something like the G Pro Wireless/X Superlight, the G703 or the G502 Lightspeed.

      Oh I definitely need this game in my life. Added to my steam wishlist.

      And the game isn't a cash grab either.

      @WaggishOhio383hopefully it stays that way. To many games have promised that and once the game went live it shifted to that model within the first year. 

  3. So hypothetically speaking, if you could get both the 6800XT and a 3080 at MSRP, would there be any point in getting the 6800XT over the 3080 if you are mainly gaming? Performance wise, they are basically the same, unless you want to use RT, then the 3080 is way ahead, but then you look at the software support/features. Nvidia has many cool nice-to-haves like DLSS, RTX Voice and Nvidia Reflex, they have way more partnerships with developers and their driver and software support is better in general. If I'm already spending $650 on a GPU, I don't think it would be that hard to spend $50 more for those features and much better raytracing. If the price difference was closer to $100-150, the 6800XT would be a much more compelling option IMO.

      @Spotty To be fair, demand right now is kind of inflated because of how absolutely horrible Nvidia's (and AMD's) supply is. I was mostly talking about a best case scenario with both in stock and at the MSRP.

      DLSS is nice, Nvidia definitely has the partner support and budget to get more games supporting it, unfortunately a proprietary feature. AMD is working on their own DLSS, i'm not expecting it to be nearly as good though.

      RTX voice is something i'd go with Nvidia for, too bad AMD doesn't have anything like it.

      I'd give Reflex a try, not sure I would notice a difference though lol.

      Raytracing might be more important with upcoming console games, but since the PS5 and Xbox X are using AMD GPU's, AMD might optimize their own raytracing, theres a few titles that AMD's raytracing does well. But its unfortunate there isn't any one standard that can have both Nvidia and AMD raytracing support.

      For a best case scenario with prices at MSRP yeah I'd go with a 3080, only concerns I have is how well the 10GB of VRAM would be after 2 or 3 years of owning it, and higher power consumption.

      The things that impact me most:

      • video encoder (for livestreaming)
      • compute performance (F@H, frame interpolation, video editing, etc.)
      • VRAM buffer (for 4K gaming and other niche tasks)
      • software stability (because I hate reinstalling drivers constantly)
  4. Wondering if the new COD will get a discount for black friday. I'm thinking about getting it, but man, I just can't bring myself to spend $60 on it.

      Yeah, the campaign looks pretty cool ngl. I'd mostly get it for multiplayer though, every time I try to complete a story mode/campaign I get bored halfway. lmao

      I don't think I bothered with the campaign on any except modern warfare and BO. I gave up on COD entirely after Infinite Warfare.

      man same, really cant bring myself to pay $60 for a game however i do have a code from the RTX promo they had so theres that lol just gotta find somebody to activate it for me ig

  5. The only way to fix it is to buy new mouse switches from aliexpress/ebay and replace the broken ones. Are you sure that you aren't still covered by warranty?
  6. I think the closest thing to what you are looking for is the G Pro Wireless, it's $130 on logitech's website, but you can find it for cheaper online or use a student or streamer discount on logitech's website to get it for $100-ish.
  7. Unpopular opinion: The whole "scalper bad" thing is cringe. If anyone is to blame, it's the people willing to pay like 50% more than MSRP just to get a new console/GPU/whatever early. You aren't getting a worse product if you get it a month later.

      @imreloadinnot only that but you also have a lot higher chance to get a lot worse overclocker with the early samples compared to later when the process gets more refined.

      See...just don't buy anything on the release date, let the chumps QC and Beta test for you😂

  8. Better is something very subjective, these 2 mice are completely different. The G502 is a non-symmetrical and relatively big mouse with more of a focus on general usage with all the buttons and the infinite scroll wheel. The Model O is a symmetrical and low profile mouse with more of a competitive/fps focus. I'd say a closer comparison is the G Pro Wireless and the Model O Wireless. If you are talking about the wireless performance, then I'd have to go with the G502 purely because of how "battle tested" logitech wireless has been, with many esports pros using logitech wireless in b
  9. Yes, but if you start censoring people based on the expert opinion, you can only go off of the currently available information, so, hypothetically speaking, you could censor information that might turn out to be true. (Some will obviously never become true, but you get the point) This wouldn't be an issue if the post wasn't censored, but the expert opinion was clearly displayed alongside it. My only problem is with censorship.
  10. That is true, for these specific things, but we don't know that much about covid and information is changing often. Like half a year ago, the health experts were saying that wearing masks in public was unnecessary, but as it turned out, wearing masks in public would have actually helped a ton.
  11. We agree then, I think this is probably the best way to go about this. Sometimes, even the worlds leading experts can be extremely wrong (Fun fact: Schrodinger's cat was actually meant to mock quantum theory and show that it was absurd.), which is why it's better to just provide the information from the experts, while not outright censoring the potentially misleading content.
  12. That is true, science is constantly evolving, so information that is considered true today may be wrong tomorrow. If you told someone in the 1800s that time is relative or that matter has wave like properties, he'd think you are a nutjob.
  13. My opinion is that misinformation is a preferable alternative to censorship, at least it doesn't last as long. The most important thing is clearing up the misinformation, which can be hard, but it is possible. What twitter is doing is pretty good, doesn't censor the content, but they do provide you with the facts too. Making the media more trustworthy to the public would also help massively. That is true for some things, but not all. For example, if you say that covid is a hoax, then yeah, that is wrong and you're an idiot (and all the experts agree). If you question the impact that a
  14. So what's your solution? Give some big corporation/government the power to control everyone's thoughts and punish wrongthink, don't you think this is super dangerous? I'll just ask you this, do you think that censoring the people you are describing would honestly stop the misinformation? It would only reinforce the conspiracy theories and push them "underground" where they won't be challenged which will even further reinforce the stupidity, if instead of censoring them, you provide them with the correct information, there is at least a chance that they would stop believing in that nons
  15. Define "fake news", who gets to decide? Mr Zuckerberg? The US Government? Advertisers? Do you not think that such power could easily be abused to push misinformation?
