  1. Just voted for steam and it went in. Only let me pick one.
  2. @Soullessone21 FYI the vote lets you tick multiple boxes, but it looks like only one goes through. I ticked steam and amazon, but only amazon shows in the results.
  3. Steam and Amazon are my votes. Both give the most selection for games/stuff respectively.
  4. Per the title. Enjoy! https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/sid-meiers-civilization-vi/home
  5. Really? That's crazy cheap sounding.
  6. Per the title, Grand Theft Auto V is free on epic games right now. Website seems to be down, but it just worked for me through the app. They seem to be a bit overloaded with this offer. I will add a link if the website comes back up.
  7. Grabbed one for $135 from amazon early this year. Wish I grabbed 2...one for its intended purpose and 1 to shuck. that said, $167 is still a great price if you got one!
  8. Anandtech finished their chart. Basically the 3100 performs on average the same as a 7700k.
  9. I should follow up my previous comment and say that while it isn’t for me, I would still give it a read/watch if you do feel like capturing your impressions/results!
  10. Hmmm. I am sure some people would watch it...but I am more with eunoia. Air coolers for me, or maybe eventually an AIO (probably not though).
  11. Budget monsters. It’s great that they tested both at fixed 4ghz as well to see the impact of the core structure. 3300X will be a great budget gamer. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-3-3100/ https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-3-3300x/ EDIT : reviews also up at tomshardware and anandtech. While they haven’t finished all testing on the 3100 yet to fully populate this table, I found this very interesting:
  12. I can honestly say I haven’t heard of ZADEK. Seems like decent kits though. Always nice to have options. I would love to have a set of this in 2x16gb (or >) 3600mhz (or >). Pricing (as always) plays into decisions!
  13. Thanks for the review! Twitch fps games would be the target market. For everyone else I think you are better off getting more pixels for your $ at the expense of some hz...especially in the 27” market.
  14. That’s terrible. You ordered stuff “sold by newegg” and they are blaming on another company?
  15. Completely agree about search functionality. But if you just watch for good sales, or if you know what you want and just look around at prices, I find Newegg is typically higher (sometimes it is just higher shipping prices).
  16. A very true story. The first pc I got that was solely mine (not family), was at Canada computers in 2002 (in store...and I paid for assembly...the shame). I didn’t mind the store, but it was busy and not very friendly. A handful of upgrades with no real depth of knowledge using random stores led me (eventually) to NCIX. I used them exclusively for a few years except for occasional shell shocker deals at newegg that were too good to pass up. Enter memoryexpress whose price beat was also too good to pass up, though selection was limited. I cross shopped a lot during this time. NCIX fell, memory express grew (as its prices became more the norm), newegg faltered to what It is now (often high shipping costs and 3rd party sellers). I now find myself also using amazon most of the time for the simplicity and prices. It feels wrong, but money (Pricing) talks. Canada computers has expanded East to Halifax though, and (when not in isolation) I find myself back in a store branded as it was when I really started my PC adventure...though this one is a much nicer and more stocked experience.
  17. Clearing out your parts bins? That will be a great budget gamer. 1050ti is hardly “scrap parts”.
  18. More nice finds. Not much like that around me. The font on that 4570 looks very different than I am used to seeing.
  19. Nice review. I have absolutely no issue with no heatsinks, and would love to save a few $ by getting rid of randomly shaped/oversized stuff hanging on ram. That said, 3600mhz is generally only marginally more expensive than 3200, so I would probably opt for a slightly faster kit. Money talks though, so street pricing will be the deciding factor.
  20. Good fun, and nice budget build finds.
  21. You have already done more than what is required IMO. I am all for accommodating and being friendly, but it is a used card, you are not a store, and it sounds like he is abusing your being accommodating. I would advise him to accept one of your options and then let it be done.
  22. Nice. Look forward to following the wc adventure. What’s the hardware list?
  23. All buttoned up now. Still can decide on a colour. Took a picture in red, and my daughters choice of a kind of light blue/teal. I will be dimming it down for sure, but I am actually very happy with it so far. The pictures aren’t 100% correct, as the red appears much darker shade in person.
  24. Before, the kit content, my rough placement of the power supply, and the interior pic. Still tidying and trying to decide on a colour.
