In Topic: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 K|NGP|N ACX 2.0+ with MGS5 Voucher - $499.99 via EVGA

jesus, and I thoughr $200 for my secondhand R9 290 was a good a deal (plus $90 for copper VRM heatspreaders, NZXT AIO cooling bracket, and an AMD AIO cooler).  To be fair, she runs like a boss, and has served me spectacularly since last October (and a hundred hours of Witcher 2, supersampled, among countless others).  

 

But at $200 more? - if I had not already gone through all of that labor with the R9, I would be all up in this deal...

In Topic: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz LGA 1150 -$199.99 @ Micro Center in store

Is this better than my i5 3570k 3.4 GHz Quad Core and is it worth upgrading to that?


Not worth the update. Great processor if you're building a new rig (like I did last October), but no value in upgrading. Additionally, most x-series mobos do not support this chip. As such, it would likely be an upgrade to the processor AND the motherboard.

I care less about the "Doctrine of First Sale" and its application to digital goods than I care about the mile long trail of people on Twitter talking about their revoked keys, missing refunds and other crappy business practices.  Well, that and my own experiences.
 
Sell blue jeans is perfectly legal but if a company sold me blue jeans that fell apart, required an extra surcharge to guarantee them and would maybe go missing from my closet without warning and then take weeks to be refunded or replaced, I'd still take my blue jean shopping elsewhere.


Oh bitch, please! - I'd start buying dresses and kilts, if I had such bad luck with jeans!

Bought four games from G2A and another 2 from MMOGA.com all in the past month. NO issues whatsoever. Totally recommend!

Thanks for this thread!
