Hopefully fixed the embedding, there's something wrong with my Chrome won't show embedded images on this forum that's why cannot see DrBaldwin's images earlier, even though trophy sigs and whatnot all working, just cannot see images in img tags.

How Amazon gonna claim back the 2nd delivery? Anyway I didn't receive any email from them and I already installed and starting using liao ... anyway cheap drive for them lor Crucial P1 is budget entry NVMe. My previous PC is i7-6700k so is 4+ years old. The PS4 Pro is the 3rd PS4 I own but my i7-6700K definitely younger than the PS4.

TBH I used to maintain a 3 year tech refresh cycle for PCs. COVID backside itchy so built a new one.

Thanks I still cannot see on my side, something to do with Chrome since I can see it on Edge :evil: dunno why just the embeds cannot see. Flush cache still cannot but nvm.

So what's the damage? 3 years cycle? So the PCMR gang actually bullshit about having a rig that can outlast a console gen huh?

Should have waited a while more. Word has it that the latest 3070 can blow your 2080 out of the water and makes the next gen console irrelevant.

Dun say 2080, the 3070 can outperform the 2080TI. However this card will require minimum 750W PSU. As well, unless you pre-order you're unlikely to get a 3080, and when 3070 is released later on, will have same issue all the way through to 2021. According to HWZ, SLS pre-orders are already filled for 3080.

I dun wan to wait till 2021 for a new rig. 3 year cycle is my own take, I buy new rig and sell off the previous one, and the new one is usually 1-2 gen behind current. My previous one is 1080GTX i7-6700K which is around mid 2016 so already 4.5 years old, though it's still a perfectly capable PC since PC hardware already far outstripped most gaming needs.

This GPU conversation is similar to the mouse game. Logitech has the Hero sensor doing 16000 DPI, 1000 reports per second, full RGB. I have a G502 wired which does 12000 DPI, but I use 2400 DPI, any higher and the cursor is moving too fast for me. Most PC gamers don't need 16000 DPI just like most gamers don't need 300FPS in games, but get PC gear that can do it anyway, because PCMR?

NVMe storage can do 4000 megabytes per second transfer now, but in reality all games now perform just as well with 550 meg SATA3 SSD, but at least for this, costs are really low and NVMe gives cleaner SFF builds reducing 2 cables.

So in hindsight, even tho COVID backside itchy, my SFF build is perfectly fine.
