Stop with the fucking curved monitors for fuck's sake! It's a dumb gimmick. It introduces distortion, uniformity problems, increases reflections due to the parabolic curve, reduces color accuracy, makes your display useless for graphic design, takes up more space, and costs considerably more.
Why can't we focus on 40"+ displays with these high refresh rates and 4k or greater resolutions? Large displays taking up the majority of your vision are far more immersive than some stupid, flawed gimmick that's full of drawbacks. Just stop it.

This is the test of will. Those who are excited AF but don't go for this EA will have passed it. Why ruin the ultimate experience of playing the polished, full game by eating from the pan before the meal is ready? Your hunger will already be sated before it's served. So silly.
Like I said, I will be replaying in single-player & coop, many times over time. EA is only 25 hours, a good taste. So far, not many games released this year, I've been playing FFXIV, would like to give that a breather. Looking forward to see what BG3 has now; looking forward to seeing how the game changes in full release and into future. I don't think it's silly, it's a plan.

The Donald has been infected? Wow. 6 months ago he would have told all of us that this would be fake news because there was no virus. Than it was the Chinese virus. Now it's HIS virus.
* Donald Trump said late Thursday night that he and the first lady would begin a quarantine process after top aide Hope Hicks tested positive for coronavirus.
* "The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!" Trump tweeted after earlier, suggesting that he may quarantine.
That's not the same as saying he is himself infected. Blues News is a bastion of free expression, probably one of the last, but that also puts everyone on notice to be careful about what is posted here. Remember, Google scrubs or buries incorrect information from their engine. Should such a comment like yours come up, their algorithm may ding Blue's search rankings. Let's not contribute to that.

Why do people keep talking about the 10% increase in gaming performance as a reason against this GPU? This is NOT primarily for gaming. Period. The 24GB VRAM is clearly aimed at productivity and considering it's 45% faster for 20% higher cost than the 2080Ti it's very good for that.
The biggest concern isn't the value, it's the atrocious power consumption from this big of a GPU on this Samsung 8nm process. Power consumption shown below is absolutely insane:

This entire release schedule by Nvidia is so stupid.... They have almost zero cards for consumers to buy , but they pushed so hard to launch the products out the door , like they are scared of AMD's cards coming out. !?
THey are acting like they needed to be first out the door to keep customers loyal , but are just pissing everyone off and making them wait for AMD anyways because of no availability of the 30xx series...
Nvidia is at the top , why not launch when you actually have inventory to please the masses ?

Then about 45-60 minutes or so later, posted an EVGA card. Of course, I missed both. I got all the way to the last checkout step for the EVGA though, before it auto-removed from my cart saying there was no stock.
It’s oos now https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HR55YB5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8

Question about NVMEs. Do they have their own separate bus from SATA drives? I have two SATA SSDs and a SATA 7200. The first one I use for system and system apps. The second is for modern games that are more demanding and want better speed. The 7200 is for media storage and old games. I'll want to keep that setup in my new PC, but throw a NVME into the mix solely for games - and the most demanding ones at that like Cyberpunk, et al. I'm presuming the legacy drives are all chained on the system bus and the NVME has its own? Is that how it'll work?
