    Superflower or Corsair

    The corsair ax1600i is one of best PSUs ever made, the amount of science that went into its design will make Superflower engineers explode, Flextronics are a legit top dawg in the PSU space, i would buy their stuff above anything, most people dont realize how cheaply made even the top end...

    Seagate: Firecuda 530 First PS5-Compatible SSD, $275 for 1 TB

    Sony should have opted for a propitiatory storage expansion like Xbox, DIY SSDs are variable in quality and pricing, and you dont know if they pull an ADATA and redesign the drive without people knowing Wounder why the SN750 and 980 pro were not validated, perhaps their controllers arent as...

    Dell Cannot Ship Select Alienware Aurora R10/R12 Systems to Several US States Due To New Power Regulations

    As much as this sucks, atleast this should force chip makes like Nvidia, AMD, and Intel to fix the ridiculous power consumption of their current SKUs, Nvidia especially made zero performance per watt improvements since pascal, driving TDPs over 400w !

    Electronic Arts Announces the Return of Dead Space

    Andromeda's problems stemmed from the difficult to work with Frostbite engine, seeing this Dead Space reboot will also be powered by frostbite is a concern for sure, but i guess they must have overhauled that engine since then because EA had lots of negative press because their game devs...

    Opinions on this build please (with a RTX 3090)

    The SN550 is an true NVMe, not sata. So is the SN550 yet is very popular, and dosnt show any major performance flaws in games and everyday use.
