Roger that.

Side note: thought this looked interesting:

Nvidia Announces ARM Acquisition for $40 Billion

The deal ranks as the largest semiconductor acquisition in history and marks the second-largest tech acquisition in history behind Dell's $64 billion purchase of EMC.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
I'm looking for an oddly specific case, anyone know of anything that has the following?

- Mid tower preferred, nothing smaller (full tower works, or a larger mATX tower)
- No windowed side panel
- Has a handle

I'm looking to attach a 23" monitor to the side panel of the case and make it a machine I can take with me to BR when I go in town.

Machine will be nothing fancy... i5 8500, cheapest possible mobo, 8gb of ram, 256gb nvme drive and probably something like a 1070

It's got that uglass red on it though. Why spend $100 more anyway? The eve spectrum uses an LG panel.

ETA: Eek, apparently they have a history of taking pre-order monies and not delivering.

You should look up Eve's previous "community developed" product. 2 years and people are still waiting on orders.

You couldn't pay me to deal with that sketchy arse lying company.

ETA: I see you have discovered this



Also some more monitor news: the Acer 28" 4K/144Hz HDMI2.1 has been pushed to 2021. It doesn't have a very wide color gamut anyways at 90% DCI-P3 whereas LG NanoIPS's are 98% and tops in the game yet the MSRP is at $1,243. I really do not know how LG is selling the GN950 at $799 for what it offers. The 32" Asus that Carson alludes to will be 2021 as well and at least $1200+, which is just bonkers when you compare how awful they are compared to TV's but cost the same.

What’s a good prebuilt thatll handle crusader kings 3? Finally gonna buy a PC. Not going to be playing any FPS or really anything too graphics heavy and yes I know building your own is the way to go but I’m lazy and would rather instant gratification.

Did Corsair ever finalize the acquisition of OriginPCs?

Edt: oh, few months back

Isn't Corsair also rumored to go public?

3080 is nuts

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Well we knew nvidia was exaggerating a bit calling the 3080 "up to" twice as fast as a 2080 (with probably RTX on and DLSS or something), but still pretty promising.

Hardware Unboxed got +31% at 4k than 2080 TI across 14 games but only +21% at 1440p. Still a HUGE leap over Turing vs. Pascal especially in price/performance.

In their test system with a 2080ti it drew 433 watts while gaming vs. 523 watts on the 3080.

Sounds like the 3070 will in fact be right at 2080Ti level of performance, not bad. Poor 2080Ti owners

Idk, it is like that when you buy the flag ship every gen.

The only time I was truly pissed off is when nVidia released the 780 Ti 3-4 months after the OG TITAN launch. One of the TITANS I grabbed off eBay for 1300 and one I was able to grab at retail price.

But with the release of the 780Ti at I believe 799 or 899, it cut my OG TITANS resale in half to $600 within 120days post launch.

Price you pay when buying each gens flag ship.

I'm waiting for big navi because no reason not to see what competition will be but that's where I'm thinking as well. I've never been in the pay a gigantic amount for a card that's marginally faster than much cheaper card crowd myself (I get why people do it, I just dont game nearly enough to justify it). Have a 5700XT right now I nabbed for $350 upon release which plays everything I need at 1080p 60FPS with maxxed out details....until I get Microsoft Flight Sim of course

And people spent $1,200-$1,400 for 2080Tis, and as soon as 3070 reviews get released there's probably no reaosn to pay more than $450 for them (some have been panic selling for $500 already). That's quite a drop I havent seen in some time. Just nuts. If it was "only" really $1000 it wouldnt be as bad, but the 2080 TI price inflation makes it so much worse.
