  1. F Newegg with a rusty fork.

     

    Running lotterys to sell products is a sad admission that they either have no control over their sales platform, or they happily sell in bulk to scalpers.

     

    With that said, selling at MSRP would be at least reasonable considering the times.

     

    Selling with a mark up or with mandatory packages is a sick joke.

     

    I hope they go out of business and die.

      One would think it would be the opposite for scalpers and lotteries.  Right now demand exceeds supply (which I expect will slowly change as people one by one acquire cards)  mining is already starting to lift at the low end perhaps.  Some dude in Australia or new zeland or something bought a bunch of used 570s from a miner because they weren’t profitable any more.  I expect used GPUs will appear from the bottom up as stuff becomes unprofitable to mine on.

      Yeah I understand the economics of the current situation.

       

      The issue is Newegg painting the shuffle as a win for gamers and enthusiasts desperate for a card when in reality, its a way to dump unprofitable or slow selling gear in bundles and make 200% profits by selling over MSRP.

       

      Their incompetency and/or greed caused the issues and now they happily manipulate things further to rake in the money.

      I don’t know to what degree Newegg personally caused the current issues. Running a lottery to buy marked up stuff in nasty bundles is kinda lame.  With luck they won’t get away with it for very much longer.  Their behavior is getting worse not better. Does to some degree depend on how bad the bundles are.  Some new PSUs for example don’t sell because they’re dangerous and should never have been made for example.  If they’re pushing those it’s pretty bad.  They could actually create a situation where manufacturers make shoddy goods because they know they will sell anyway as part of these bundles.

  2. I am not a chaser of new and shiny things, but I have had this phone since new and it needs a new front screen, back glass, mute switch (it's still in there, but you gotta ago looking for it to get it to work) and battery (down to 70%). It's time for either an upgrade or big repair. I'm willing to spend the money on a device I use everyday. The price, while steep, is worth it for me. But as you and I have discussed @DrMacintosh, NO FINGERPERINT SENSOR, NO BUY!!!
  3. Has anyone heard any credible rumors that the iphone 13 will have a fingerprint scanner? I am waiting to see if I need to repair my 8plus's back glass or buy a new 13 when it comes out. Just checking in. Thanks.
  4. https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards-Components/Motherboards/All-series/B150M-A-M-2/HelpDesk_CPU/ CPU and Memory support list from the Website.
  5. No worries, Bud. This is how you learn. Just about every part and piece has a website with tech specs listed. That, combined with PCpart picker which should tell you if there is compatibility issues, will help you a lot. For example, PC part picker should have warned you that the 360mm radiator won't fit in your current case.
  6. The issue isn't whether it's a full or mid tower, its if the cooler will fit. From the tech specs on the 4000D - Radiator Compatibility 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, 280mm, 360mm You have a 360mm cooler, should be good to go.
  7. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/1?q=AMD+A10-6800K&prds=epd:9758504492736507427,eto:9758504492736507427_0,pid:9758504492736507427,prmr:1&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjSg5bHqJLwAhXI3J4KHce2A3oQ9pwGCAU $60 on ebay. Not sure where you are located.
  8. For your use case and the limited space in a cockpit, I would be careful of going bigger than the mini, unless you already have a mount and location all worked out.
  9. Do you run MSI afterburner or something like that to monitor performance during the dips? If the CPU is maxing out, a 4770 is like $80 and might help, if not then I recommend @Downkey and the build he has made for you. it will get you onto a newer platform with faster CPU and RAM speeds plus more threads.
  10. What do you use the PC for and what are the issues you are having? There are upgrades for your RAM, CPU and storage that would make a difference in your performance depending on what you are doing.
  11. I mean, you can leave the side panel off and just lay the radiator on top of the case if you NEED to install it now.
  12. z73 has 3 120MM fans right? p350x can only hold a 280MM cooler right? Not gonna fit.
  13. An overclock applied for long periods of time and run at 100% (like mining) will deteriorate a GPU over time. Hell, just running the GPU at 100% for long periods of time will degrade it. I have mined, folded, farmed and plotted my way through a few broken GPUs over the years and I never even OC them while running them like that.
  14. No worries. Your CPU is very capable. A 3070 or 3080 would be a good match too, if you have the budget.
  15. Yup, if you can find a 3060, it's a good pairing. It would be a nice upgrade from your old card.
