It’s great they did the AMD SMT fix so quickly. It was an great find from whoever discovered it. Looks like my 5800X was a good purchase after all.

If their monitor is a native 1080p/2k/4k/8k as well as if it supports 60/144/240/360Hz high refresh-rates, etc.

So the 6800 is $100 more and the 6800 XT $200 more and they crush this thing. It would be a great card at $200US but $400US is effing ridiculous. Once again I know why I don't buy Nvidia.
You're mixing up USD and CAD prices or something, 'cause the 6800 is $580, not $500.
No I was going on what I had read before but you are correct the 6800 is $579US and 6800XT is $649US - both MSRP. Still far superior cards for not a whole lot more money. If you're going to spend $400 what's another $200 for far more future proofed card at that point? The 3080 is $699US MSRP and the 3090 is $1,499 US MSRP. So the AMD cards - while both companies cards are way overpriced - is still the better value.

Sorry to be such a noob about queuing for a card, just never needed to before. On evga site, I just sign up to be auto notified, then they send me an email if they have enough tomorrow?
Then do they give us 24 hours or so to do the sale, or do we need to stay by the PC because they only give us an hour to reply?
Also, does the FTW look worth the extra $40?

...and barely any contention over quest objectives (either shared or made lootable by everyone).
I'm pleased to hear this. I feared for the launch week since the questing is linear this time, with everyone going through the zones in order - I too well remember the launch of The Burning Crusade, where everyone fought over mobs in Hellfire Peninsula so quests would take several times longer than if you were solo. They did say they'd be sharding zones once player levels reached a certain amount - sounds like that's working.
Hopefully tonight I can make a start and enjoy it, in this case.

Well GDDR6X memory is still in short supply so if you want to wait for the 20GB model of the 3080 do not expect it until next year at the lastest.
For those that purchase G-Sync monitors it still amazes me people want to pay the extra $100 for them. Another reason why AMD GPUs are better than Nvidia because almost all monitors support Freesync namely because it costs little to add it.

The 4k gaming flagship comes severly underdeveloped in the video RAM department with just 10 GB - not enough for 4k gaming in 2020 and on. I guess in 2021 they want to sell a 20 GB 3080 Ti to all people buying a regular 3080 in 2020. No, thanks. I can wait for either the 3080 Ti (or more likely 3070 Ti because I don't want such a hot card in my silent pc) with hopefully more RAM in 2021 or a big Navi with 12 or 16 GB VRAM this year. We will see. But this offer is just too greedy - I am not falling for it, Leather Jacket Man!
I don't believe it's the VRAM. I've not seen any glaring problems with my machine. I get close to 4K60 in Flight Sim with Ultra's settings (the game auto-selected that as a recommendation). The issue I see is with the mobo ram running at its peak of 2133 MHz. For example, my mobo and RAMM are both capable of 4000 MHz, but the mobo requires overclocking the CPU, which I won't do.
Aside: I do wonder if that is less the mobo and more the CPU. I have a 8700.
MSFS can easily use more than 10 GB VRAM. Here you can read more about it.
10 GB is not enough in 2020 unless in 2021 you want to sell a 20 GB card to the very same people who bought the 10 GB version in 2020. Bad move.

God Sweeney, you're such a hypocrite.
Exactly, Sweeney pissing and moaning about Apple and Goggle, and here he is doing the same exact shit to everyone else.
I guess its OK in his fucked up mind to pull this crap on everyone else but he cries a river when hes held accountable for doing it.
Hello pot, meet kettle!
Maybe Steam should throw their two cents into this to and Sue EPIC for trying to monopolize the market with the backstabbing bullshit they are doing. I mean in all honestly I think Steam might have a case in this.
Ah yes, paying studios millions to make a game a temporary exclusive on their storefront that runs on an open platform is exactly the same as charging a flat 30% to every studio that wants to sell on the one storefront allowed on a closed platform.
Exactly the same.

Think this is a good PC case? Cooler Master Silencio S600. It's $154 CDN which is fair enough. Seeing as it looks like Europe's out this Fall - le sigh - I may as well start putting together my new PC. Whilst I have to wait until Oct/Nov for the Navi 2 stuff - and corresponding mobos and ram - I figured I could at least get the case and fans now. Coolermaster fans any good or go with something else? I want something quiet and cool, with quiet being the priority. It'll be the solid case cause I don't care about RGB displays.

It is just disgusting that you dont tell people why you banned them. How can they learn from that then?
That they deleted the transaction infos on that other case doesnt surprise me then.
They seem to have the same braindead hierarchy as Twitter. Every low employee on a power trip can just play god and then the guys in higher positions defend their mistakes to the death to not seem weak.
