Could my 1080 Ti possibly be re-sealed?

Hello! I recently bought a new 1080 Ti off eBay, the item came sealed and I immediately noticed the seal was very sloppy – I investigated a little and found a similar unboxing video where this guys seal seemed more professional. This may be pure paranoia but I’m curious if anyone could give me some […]

Is PC gaming on Medium settings an enjoyable experience?

Let’s make an epic gamer moment Corgis

It’s obvious Valve is purposely slowing down Corgi due to its epic wins. It’s been over twice the speed of every other team and has been last for most of the day. What I propose is for my fellow Corgis to rise up and beat the other teams regardless of Valves attempt to slow us. […]

Wait for console specs before upgrade?

Hey all, I am planning to do a full PC upgrade (have i5 3570k and GTX 960) in the near future, but after talking to a friend I am thinking it makes more sense to wait to hear official specs for PS5 / Xbox Scarlett before I buy. The rationale being that once specs are […]
