  1. So it has been a while since I was here and things were quiet. It crossed my mind today and I decided to come check in. Anyone still on the forums, or is all the chat gone or moved elsewhere? I see there are a few recent reviews for me to go through, which is a pleasant surprise. I hope everyone is doing well!
  2. Thanks for the review. There is a lot of content within the read that seems to be focused on the current state of people recommending amd. While I don’t 100% agree with all the comments, I respect your honesty in it. I completely agree that there is always a case to make different recommendations, vice blanket statements. That being said, there was a long window of time were the general consensus was intel unless you fell into certain use cases...now that has generally reversed...whether we like it or not. I don’t think I am biased and have and will continue to buy whatever is the best pr
  3. Seems like a great drive! Thanks for the review.

    Soooooo.....nobody. Really seems like everyone left the site at once and nobody told me why.

    Thanks for the update. Major changes to the site? I don’t do discord.

    I hope everyone enjoyed their Canada Day, and that the weather is treating you well wherever you are at. The site has gone so quiet....
  7. Looking good! Whats was he plan for the temporary parts?
  8. Seems like great choices. Sn750 is even better...just costs more.
  9. Seems like a great parts list. A quality PSU and a used rx580 or gtx 1070, and you are set. Lots of parts have been steadily increasing in cost. Make sure to get 3200-3600mhz ram. For the motherboard I would personally wait to see how b550 motherboards are cost wise after release (so close now). But otherwise the b450 of your choice is fine. For the SSD, the best bang for buck (IMO) is the sn550. I would try to squeeze a 1TB in if you can, since it should be enough to not have to deal with a secondary drive unless there is mass storage, or all games left installed. They are
  10. Just voted for steam and it went in. Only let me pick one.
  11. @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.
  12. Steam and Amazon are my votes. Both give the most selection for games/stuff respectively.
  13. Per the title. Enjoy! https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/sid-meiers-civilization-vi/home
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. Anandtech finished their chart. Basically the 3100 performs on average the same as a 7700k.
  17. 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!
  18. 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).
  19. 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:
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. That’s terrible. You ordered stuff “sold by newegg” and they are blaming on another company?
  23. 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).
  24. 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. NCI
