  1. Interesting, yea for sure that would be great. This is why I am sort of skeptical on that we won't have GPUs until 2021. Seems kinda crazy if AMD can keep stock as they claim for this.
  2. So in theory then AMD should have a similar issue to this then when they launch? I mean I knew about the PC parts scarceness. I built a PC for my girlfriend and her sister and had to go with some different parts due to stocking issues. It's been a couple months since I looked at parts aside from the GPU stuff.
  3. I am in that same boat my Strix 1070 has been going strong for almost what 5 years now... but it's time for that upgrade
  4. Yeah I agree, was either gunna go with EVGA or the ASUS Strix 3080. Just keep staring at pictures because that's as close as I am going to get for a while probably. I am hopeful though.
  5. I was talking to my coworker about this and I said the same exact thing... I really hope so because I'm in need for the GPU upgrade hah
  6. I think you can request it now even if the stock is out? I'm not sure entirely because now I just stumbled upon this, and may take up this offer. As I am on a 1070, and it's starting to see worse days when it comes to content creation/streaming. I would just be afraid if I buy a 2080 from EVGA, and then NOT be able to do the step up even though their 3080 FTW IS on that list of the step up due to stock issues.
  7. Sure Zen 1 was really rough for AMD but they turned it around and I am happy for them. Heck my girlfriend and her sisters PC's are off the Ryzen 3000s series. Not saying they "can't" more or less that over the years problems still arise with their GPUs again I had 2 of them & have had friends with AMD cards coming to me saying they shouldn't have switched. Why would you switch to something with less known reliability IMO. That's taking a huge leap of faith, especially if you are comfortable with what you know and have. Just mostly opinion let's see if they can fix their encoder and other i
  8. Going to also say was helping a friend with her build, and when she told me she got a 5700xt after she had an Nvidia 1070 I was like noooooooo. Mostly because of my own experiences with AMD cards, had 2 and they were arguably the worst GPU's I have ever owned. Guess what? She had an issue with drivers/defective card 3 days in and I told her I was not surprised in the slightest. Another friend also got one he likes to stream a lot and I told him he was making a HUGE mistake because of AMD's encoder being broken and not on par with NVENC. What did he do? He sold that 5700xt and got a 2070 super.
  9. I'm in the same boat my friend, I'm currently on a 1070 and I was looking to upgrade to due streaming more frequently and since I stream off the GPU it's been a bit of a tougher time as of late. I'm waiting for the new cards to be announced today, much excite. This is the first time I've been in the market around a launch time. Gives me some more time to save up some of that dough though!
  10. I used a hard mouse pad for a while. As much as I liked it, the pad got worn out very quickly. Have been using soft again for a couple of years and it just feels better on my hands. All personal preference. Next thing to try is the full extended mousepads.
  11. Yeah, I work in an enterprise environment and when people ask for keyboard replacements or needing their laptop keyboard looked it, some of them need some deep cleaning with the amount greasy stains. It looks like they always eat with their PC right in front of them. Which leads me to saying canned air for loose debris, Iso Alcohol, Qtips and a nice cloth after pulling keys off of course.
  12. Going to second this about Kailh. My first hotswap keyboard came with Outemu blues, and they felt okay. I swapped them out for Kailh Pro Light Green switches and it felt much better. On my current board, I have the CTRL Keyboard from Drop, and has Kailh BOX Whites and I have loved them ever since. Don't think I am going back to Cherry again.
  13. My friend has one of these. He loves it. I have tried it out when playing games over there, and it felt pretty good for the price. Definitely a good budget keyboard. I personally do not own one because I have a more "enthusiast" hot swap board nowadays.
  14. You should apon plugging in the device get Synapse 3 if it is a newer Razer device.
  15. https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-2-Port-DisplayPort-Multi-Stream-Transport/dp/B075754ZYC/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_23_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=0YNAYMZQ004C21B6NT1X This is one of those adapters, I have used one for HDMI at least and I am sure it would work the same or similar to that.
  16. Yeah the 2x8GB is currently what I am using in my main build. I have had no issues as I said. Let us know how it works out for you! RAM is relatively cheap right now.
  17. I guess it could be hit or miss really. In my opinion that can be anything in life or technology.
  18. Corsair RM650-750x is where I would go for my PSU. I own one of these and an older 1000 w Corsair and I have had 0 issues with it in my 8 years of doing PC building/tech stuff.
  19. Used Drano on mine and they have currently gone away. Tips though try to clean it everyday though and don''t let too much build up or be left out.
  20. I did this on a laptop I have, I just wanted a fun project to work on so I installed Ubuntu which I got to play around with very little in college. It's been fun so far to learn all aspects of Linux.
  21. Yeah he stated that he cant run 3200 MHz, but I had missed where he was going to use single 16 sticks. Yes please use dual channel, if you have it so that would be 2 8gb sticks. Glad to see someone else rocking those LPX Vengeance RAM sticks! I have had mine over a year clocked at the speed listed and I have not had an issue.
  22. So it could go either well or fail really miserably. I personally do not recommend doing that, and just doing a clean reimage when you are putting it into a new build just in case. You shouldn't have a licensing issue with it being on the drive/ if you used the media tool. IIRC
  23. That is correct, my fault on that. Yeah I wouldn't use a Hyper 212 EVO for OCing. I also agree with that they are pretty bothersome to install and some consider them to be "ugly". If you care about aesthetics in your case then that might be an issue but like you said on a budget might be the best route to just go with an EVO for now and if you want to do anything else later down the road you have time to save up for that.
  24. I would suggest Cherry MX Speed/Razer Yellows. I used these for a long time in my Blackwidow and I loved them for gaming and typing on. The only reason I don't use them now is because I had purchased a more enthusiast keyboard and have been experimenting with other kinds of switches out there.
