    Build Your Masterpiece - CORSAIR Launches New Full-Tower 7000 Series Cases

    I agree, 100%! I don't understand this mentality that gamers don't need or use hard drives.

    Microsoft Launches Windows 11 Operating System

    That's a stupid and paranoid theory, unless you can cite some actual proof of the allegations that you're making here, in your absurd attempt at Apple bashing.

    Microsoft Account and Internet Connection Mandatory for Windows 11 Home Setup

    Nothing you've said here is true and your comment makes it's pretty clear to us that you know little about how macOS works.

    What year is it, where you live? That you are amazed that a 970 still works?

    Aio vs custom cooling

    In my book It's like asking what's better, a stock car or one that has been customized? Car manufacturers use parts that are price conscious and work just fine. Aftermarket parts are often better quality with improved performance, but are more expensive. Of course some people spend fortunes on...

    It's amazing how upset people get about their local weather in the taskbar, that they can easily remove.

    What speeds would this SSD have on ps4?

    Those speeds listed from the marketing departments are often theoretical maximums in a laboratory. Add in different chipsets, cables, overheads, environments, etc and there you are.

    GIGABYTE Gives Public Apology for "Made in China" Mocking After Company Shares Plummet by $550 Million

    Your post, here, is rather off topic, don't contribute to the discussion, and it's likely that nobody here cares about your personal situation. You can always follow up with them or continue to wait patiently for their response, like people normally do when it comes to RMAs. Also, don't forget...

    DRAM Revenue for 1Q21 Undergoes 8.7% Increase QoQ Thanks to Increased Shipment as Well as Higher Prices, Says TrendForce

    Since there is more than one supplier, by definition it's not a "monopoly". The burden of providing the proof is on you or anyone else that thinks that might be the case, as far as your accusations go.

    Turtle Beach Announces Recon 500 Headset Featuring 60mm Eclipse Dual Drivers

    "metal-reinforced headband" I guess these won't end up like my last Turtle Beach headset, with a broken plastic headband and useless.

    Are these rams compatible?

    People get way too worked up about RAM these days. There's very little real world difference, at least not enough to worry about or pay a lot more for, in most cases.

    How can I free up space on a 30GB laptop?

    Compression usually reduces performance and on a machine that already has performance issues? It's probably not a good idea.

    Like someone in another comments section, that I was reading, mentioned, Apple was one of the first to use Gigabit Ethernet as a standard in their machines, which dramatically brought down the price and shortly thereafter every cheap Windows PC had it. We might see something similar here or at...

    Turtle Beach Recon 70 Gaming Headset Now Available in Arctic Camo

    I will never again buy a headset with that cheap plastic headband. The one on my last Turtle Beach headset broke where the headband connects to the speaker. You can tell where it will snap on these just by looking at that picture. You can't be careful enough with it, like it's designed to break.

    TrendForce: Consumer DRAM Pricing to Increase 20% in 2Q2021 Due to Increased Demand

    In what geographic place do you think this is "criminal" and where did you get your law degree? and advocating for violence against TrendForce isn't a good look on your part.

    It's a terrible time to build a PC. I would wait for prices and availability of parts to improve.
