    How many people still use sound cards?

    I'm running a Creative Sound Blaster Z right now. It's actually my first soundcard as I'd used onboard previously. I'm able to pick up game sounds much sooner than some of my friends which is nice. Plus the audio experience is richer when doing other things like listening to music or watching shows.

    AMD "Navi" GPU by Q3-2018: Report

    Zen+ is supposedly right around the corner for early 2018. That might explain some of the discounts we've seen lately. Also likely to better position themselves against Coffee Lake. It sounds like your nephew's friends simply go for Intel because they've been touted as the best for years...

    OFFICIAL PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (Discussion)

    I've been having some issues with PUBG and have yet to find a fix. Essentially, my game will hang, forcing me to alt+tab out twice (first to 'unfreeze' and the second to be able to turn body/head). It happens randomly, although more often within the first five minutes of the game. It's...

    OFFICIAL PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (Discussion)

    I'm enjoying the game, but I've had some awful experiences when it comes into the initial firefights. Every single time, without fail, my PC takes a dump whenever shots are being fired at me. I'm unable to do anything for about five seconds before things return to normal. The funny thing is that...

    My Hero Academia is definitely one of my recent favorites. They do a great job with the fight scenes.

    AMD CEO Talks Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen 3 Series in Latest Company Video

    That's funny, the 16 core/32 thread part is predicted to sell for $999 compared to the 10 core/20 thread part that currently sells for nearly $1,200. How is the 10 core a better deal than the 16 core beyond the brand name?

    Developers of ‘Call of Duty: WWII’ Scrub Swastika From ‘Historically Authentic’ Game

    So essentially, our Democratic party in the US falls more in line with the conservative spectrum in Europe. Is that a fair comparison? Also, you need look no further than the Kansas experiment to realize that trickle down economic policies are a farce. They slashed taxes and absolutely...

    ASUS Unveils Three Freesync-enabled, High Refresh Rate Strix Monitors

    Disappointed that their 27" panel is stuck at a bland 1080p rather than 1440p.

    Finally got my rig tuned in a bit. The RAM doesn't like going above 2933, but that's alright for now.

    This week's My Hero Academia...wow! That was a pretty awesome episode.

    Initial D! Such good memories watching and rewatching that show a few times. I got to the real final stage before the final battle but got caught up with other things. Sounds like I'll need to watch it all over again! I recently started watching Death Parade. Great show, but dear goodness all...

    Patent Trolls to Lose their "Homefield" Advantage Thanks to Supreme Court

    Never thought I'd see the day when the East Texas region is brought up in a tech article, especially about patent trolling. That said, East Texas certainly works upon the good ole boy system throughout the region so it makes sense. Hopefully this SCOTUS ruling makes a dent where it matters most...

    That's understandable, constant cliffhangers tend to get tedious. It's the new version of "Next time on Dragon Ball Z!" but thankfully the action keeps going that next week. I ran across My Hero Academia a couple of weeks ago and gave it a shot. I'm digging it so far.

    I really, really enjoyed this week's episode of DBS. One of the best fights so far. Attack on Titan is back to nuts. That was a pretty epic fight as well. And the ending...!!!

    Seriously, what is the deal with Vega?

    I don't know why, but I'm tickled by people's impatience about Vega. They announced LAST YEAR that they were planning a 1H timed release and remain on-target. Cool your jets, sit back and relax. There's no real reason to get worked up by a video card release.

    Oculus Shuts Down Its VR-driven Story Studio - The Empire Falters

    I know the Oculus received a ton of traction prior to the Facebook buyout. Personally, the buyout ended any interest I had in the Oculus hardware. Facebook is the last company I trust with that sort of tech.

    After some initial hassle, my Ryzen rig is up and running. I still need to get her dialed in, but I did get Windows installed last night before hitting the sack. I'll take a better picture later. CPU: R5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz Motherboard: MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon GPU: Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB...

    Elon Musk is boring

    Would you include the successful launch and landing of reusable rockets in that statement? Because that's a first in aerospace history. I think the success has just normalized the accomplishments.

    Pretty dang good so far. A bit more "down time" in the amount of action the past couple of episodes, but it's still creepy as hell.

    It's pretty strange, but think about the Gohan/Krillin fight again. Krillin didn't beat him based on strength. He beat Gohan thanks to a great game plan. In regards to Goku and SSB when he's picking teammates, I do have a hard time imagining that he's going all out. He knows he vastly...

    You still looking at an ASRock board? Most of their boards are sold out on Newegg in the States as well. I was hoping they'd be in stock again with the R5 release, but clearly that's not the case. I really wanted the Taichi, especially with the aesthetic design. I decided to go with the MSI...
