Well...I really just don't know. It has what appears to be a red light (lazer) coming out the bottom but has the model number GM-M6800 with "optical mouse" right here beside it. I was going to say laser on my post here but changed it when I flipped it over and saw that.

 

I'm googling about recalibration now....

Yea I think thats an optical one, and they do look basically the same. So its probably not that then. At least on my laser one theres a small calibration button on the front right side of the mouse that you press and hold and start doing a figure-8 on the surface while it reads it.

 

Either way, probably not your issue then since that should be optical

Life expectancy of an optical mouse? I assume that laser won't shine forever....

 

I have a gigabyte mouse that is probably around 10 years old giving me a bit of a fit. Had been clicking through the dpi button when it acted up and it seemed to resolve the issue for a bit. Read online it could be dirt/debris on the lens so I gave it a good scrub with microfiber to see if that helps...

Just double checking, are you sure your gigabyte isnt a laser mouse? Gigabyte made those for a good while, I still have one here that the spouse uses. They can be a bit more finnicky than opticals and you have to recalibrate them when they start acting odd

What was the previous build, if you don't mind me asking?

6700k and a 1080. Its still a fine build for gaming but at 1440 its getting a little long in the tooth. I wanted the moar cores for development and future proofing and the 3080 is a 100% upgrade from the 1080, so should last a long while

No offense, but that’s a pretty intensely ugly shade of brown on anything but a glass of chocolate milk.

yea everyone hates noctua colors, but i dont buy cases with windows nor do I do rgb (beyond what comes on GPUs) so I dont particularly care what the cooler looks like, I buy em for performance only

Awesome! What a freakin' build.

Curious: how much did this awesome monstrous build cost you?

~2300 for everything I didnt already own (which was most of it), thats with one of the nvme and the hdd being harvested from my previous build. The rest of my previous build gets handed down to the wife

Why not buy the Corsair RM850x for $130 at best buy? LTT A tier and a 10 year warranty. Sale ends today.

20 bucks more for platinum rated, which if you run it 24/7 or do extended heavy workloads can probably save you that much cash in a year. Plus the fractal is one of the quietest as well, so less noise (not that thats much of an issue with the corsair either). The corsair isnt bad, my previous build I had one in there, I just wanted a platinum rated for a bit of savings if possible and since I found one so close in price to the better gold ones I figured why not

well if you're looking for a PSU I can recommend this one so far, https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Just finished up my new build earlier this week (sans 3080 which should be here tomorrow or monday). If you grab it from the one seller who sells it for 150-160$ its pretty hard to beat for a 860w platinum rated PSU (beware that triplenet pricing company can take a long time to ship though took like 2 weeks to get here) at least these days when they start to push 50$+ over msrp. Can go find some reviews if you wish but it stacks up comparably to all the other big names and does it at a better price, just fractal hasnt been in the PSU game that long so you can find their PSUs for a bit cheaper.

Who is the resident expert on televisions?  Need to buy my mom one during Black Friday.  Nothing amazing like the $1,000+ OLED or QLED or whatever, but a solid 50" or so 4K LED.  There was one from Walmart that was a brand I never heard of but I'm thinking something like LG or Samsung is worth the extra bucks.

 

Uh... also... Steam Holiday Sale will suck.

 

/keeping on topic

someones gotta be the first to say it, tcl

 

They've become like the defacto standard of, I need a good tv and dont want to spend a fortune. Good prices normally, also tend to get like 50-100 off during sales. You can pick the 'series' you want for increasing quality, series 4 is like the baseline 4k, and you get increasingly better as you move up through the 5, 6, etc series

Near zero chance that the AMD launches go much better. There are too many component shortages and too much demand. Buyers being unable to secure 3080s and now 3070s just leaves even more demand in the market. It's nice to hope for better from AMD but the lack of 3100 and 3300x restocks in the US leave me pretty pessimistic for the Big Navi stock to be much more plentiful.

There probably will be more AMD stocks, but since there is a built up demand they will go just as fast. The 3070 launch today pretty much showed it was just due to the gddr6x being used in the 3080 that was causing limited stocks, since every microcenter had 100 or more 3070's ready to go at every store.

 

These things will always sell out online though, online stores cannot keep enough stocks to supply the worldwide demand of everyone trying to buy them there (plus you have bots to contend with), but local stores seem to be better. I.e. my local microcenter still has a handful of 3070's available hours after opening.

Aren't GPUs requiring less power as technology evolves?

If it was a straight one to one in performance yes, since as you do die shrinks they require less current, so less power, so less heat. But then that also lets you cram in many more transistors to do many more things, which brings it back up

I don't think I even get the NewEgg emails anymore. I haven't bought anything from there in a few years.

I always end up unsubbing cause newegg emails dont understand moderation. Sometimes Ill resub and say once a week is fine, but then within a couple months they are right back up to like 4 emails a day

I guess the folks at PCGamer are fake news then?

You can troll better this, come on, nowhere in there do they mention anything close to your 100$ price point, they even mention the exact same prices I did that you quoted
