  1. What does it matter what the item is? Most of the crap people buy on a day to day basis is not needed or essential. Yeah complaining on the internet isn't going to change anything but it boggles my mind that people are defending these companies.
  2. Definitely ranks at the bottom of problems facing this world at the moment but why is it a crazy thought that people have a problem with this pricing practice? You're telling me that if you went to buy something at a store, even a luxury item, and their in store price was almost triple what they advertised on their website you would be ok with that? Just because it's not an essential item doesn't make it any less of a scummy practice.
  3. I get that. But then why even have a MSRP? Doesn't that seem a little dishonest to advertise one price and then sell for a different price?
  4. I have been trying to find a 3080 for a pretty long time at this point with no luck. Today I decided to call multiple Mom and Pop computer stores around town, six in total, and the information they provided was really interesting. There were two stores that had a few cards in stock but they were going for between $1,200 and $1,500, EVGA FTW and MSI Trio cards. Two more stores said they didnt have them in stock and did not know when they would get them in stock. However the last two stores were where I had some interesting conversations. The first store told me that he didnt have any in st
  5. When I originally bought this case in 2016 it did not come with a PSU Shroud Cover. I always meant to buy one but the case was slightly hidden and didnt bother me all that much. Now that my case is on a shelf on the wall I am staring at a bunch of cables everyday and its driving me nuts. In the US the shroud covers are not being sold anywhere, at least that I could find. Anyone have any ideas what I could use as a cover? Or better yet know where I can buy an official one?
  6. For the life of me I can't seem to figure out why my system is double booting. Sometimes it will boot straight into windows most of the time it goes to the bios splash screen then goes to black for roughly 30 seconds and then goes back to the bios splash screen before booting to windows. Its not a major problem but it changes boot times from five seconds to about a minute or more. Specs below. Mobo flashed to newest bios version.

  7. Problem solved! It powered on with the cables that came with the PSU. Obviously one of the cables I have is bad, which sucks because its a cable mod cable. Thanks for the help.
  8. I just switched the one cable over to the other slot on the PSU and it boots fine. So i dont think that its a dead slot.
  9. I built a system in early 2018 with a 1080ti (Duke) and a Corsair Rmx 750w. At the time of building I attempted to use two separate 8 pin (6+2) cables to power the card but the system would not turn on. No fan spin, no lights, nothing. I switched over to a 8 pin that split into two 8 pin connectors to power the card and everything worked fine. The split cable has a loop in it that drives me crazy and I just recently attempted to use two cables again but got the same result. Am i missing something? Is there a reason why two cables wont power it but one will?
  10. Yeah that Viewsonic is what I kept coming back to. The other more budget friendly monitors didnt have a VESA mount.
  11. I am looking for a budget 1440p monitor. Its going to be used in a three monitor setup where my primary monitor is a Dell S2716DG and will be mounted on a triple arm monitor stand so it will need to have a VESA mount. It'll only be used for basic applications no video editing or gaming. Any ideas? I would like to keep the price around $250.
  12. So yes it is technically a DSL modem but does not use a DSL line in. The fiber comes in from the street and is converted in a box (I included a picture) and then is transferred inside the house the the router/modem I linked by ethernet.
  13. I think some additional information is required here. This is the current modem supplied by CentruyLink ZxyXEL C3000Z The fiber comes into a box on the outside of the house that converts it over to normal ethernet Cat5e that comes into a network box inside the house and that is what comes into the modem.
  14. Makes sense. Any ideas for a modem/router combo?
  15. I recently moved to a location that offers gigabit internet and I am currently using their hardware. I've always had coaxial modems and never one with a straight ethernet connection. Trying to find a good modem but resources on that topic is very scarce. I would like a modem with four ports, I would like to try and avoid a modem/router combo. I used Moto Surfboards in the past but havent been able to find one that isnt coxial.
