  1. i heard Microsoft wants to take away our lord and savior gaben. There's a rumor flying around that Microsoft wants to start buying some of the big gaming companies like ea, valve, and the pubg peeps.

      Plus they wouldn't need to with the fees Steam charges to sell games. Plus they don't need to compensate for the major loss of money they have when they sell Xboxs.

      And perhaps more crossplay?

      Yeah. If I was AKG, I would have been hesitant to put my name on something like that. Not everyone understands that they didn't make em.

    3. linustouchtips


      then i can hold nothing against them curse you Samsung sorry akg

      Also @linustouchtips there's an "Airflow edition" (front panel is mesh) coming out if you're using an Air Tower cooler like the Cryorig H7. The case as it stands is more optimized for radiators, just something to keep in mind :) 

    3. TVwazhere


      And I think @WoodenMarker gets the official case guru title, I'm still the apprentice :P

      @DrMacintosh I think you're misremembering Fallout 3. While the new Fallout titles certainly aren't leading the pack in graphics, they are miles ahead of the 2008 FO3.

    3. DrMacintosh


      I know, I was joking. It still looked old af. 

    4. Cyberspirit


      From what I've seen so far it looks like a downgraded version of FO4 with multiplayer.

      It's full of glitches too to no one's surprise.

      Oculus Rift with touch controllers is only $400. Comes with around seven games.

      They are more expensive, but it's preference. I heard some people had an easier time setting up the Vive but the Rift has been great and easy for me. 


      Plus I don't like the handles of the Vive. Maybe when their new version comes out I'd be tempted, but I currently prefer the Rift's touch controllers. 

  5. when you have two ryzen based systems and you see all the intel design flaw articles ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      if intel takes down x86 we all god down i cry evri time be cool if amd is exempt but who knows what a great start to the year.

    3. Lurick


      When you fail to realize the flaw could very well impact more than just Intel chips...

  6. is driving to a microcenter worth it if its more than 200 miles away?

      If the discount is worth more than the time it takes you to get there and back, then yes it is. You can also use it as an opportunity to check out the locale of wherever that Microcenter is located at.

      You can go to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, if that is something that interests you.

      That is legitimately a tough one...


      I'd say the Fortnite player has a higher chance of getting caught, so the 4yo tablet dude wins! :P 

    3. AresKrieger


      People still pay for those books xD, they're a racket no reason to support that nonsense Tablet man is smarter

    4. Hiitchy

  11. i've been buying old computer junk on ebay for the last couple of days i might actually have a build for under 100 bucks i just got to get some of the stuff working

    1. ProjectBox153


      What do you classify as "old"?

    2. linustouchtips


      xeon x3440 lga 1156 mobo for parts only gtx 780

    3. ProjectBox153


      Ha, I'd hardly consider that old. I still use Core 2 Duos all the time.

  12. should i get nier automata I'm really tempted to try it even though i don't really care for that genre?

    1. NoxiousOdor

    2. 2FA
    3. Techicolors


      has the craziest story i've played in some time. 


      just bear in mind there's no patches, so you have to rely on mods. but it isn't so bad https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Nier:_Automata

  13. why do i always get the urge to buy new hardware when it comes out I'm actually considering selling my old ryzen system off and get the refresh is this normal

      Why not just get the new CPU and keep the rest? That is what I am considering. Waiting for BIOs updates and see if it improves enough to warrant it.

  14. yea lian li case is here time to start building!! oh wait i still need to buy custom loop supplies that's another $400 dollars sigh 

    ehh im just going to do a dry run build until i get all the supplies

    2. linustouchtips

    3. TVwazhere


      Always dry run all your parts to make sure they work before you strap watercooling gear to them ;)

      OOF - two exams - in 24 hours. (#When you didn't study enough but still passed)

      Besides that, I was able to track down one of my packages that I thought may have been stolen (That was signed for by somebody who doesn't live in my town), so that was good.

      Since when did Newegg sell boyfriends?  xDxD 

    2. dizmo


      Not bad. Some pretty good deals, though surprisingly there aren't really any PSUs on sale.

      NCIX usually has more expansive sales.

  19. my desk is starting to warp in the middle where my monitors are how do i stop this omg

    1. Theguywhobea


      Screw pieces of wood to the bottom of your desk to reinforce it.

    2. linustouchtips
