  1. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3365-nvidia-rtx-2080-founders-edition-review-benchmarks-vs-gtx-1080-ti "The RTX cards may yet shine, but there aren't any applications making use of the namesake feature just yet -- at least, not any outside of tech demonstrations, and those don't count. Until we see a price drop in the 2080, compelling RTX implementations in an actually relevant game, or depleted stock on the 1080 Ti, there is no strong reason we would recommend the RTX 2080 card. "

    Second life with a GTX 1080 card?

    Rumours, and that's all this is of course as Nvidia haven't said anything yet, but apparently as of 3 days ago the release will not be Volta but Ampere/Turing in June/July or maybe April. lol Though it may be that the announcement will be at GTC at the end of the month and the cards available in June/July. Second or third now the EVGA as best choice. Best Warranty/CS in the biz. PS For the OP I have had 1080 since their release and I now have 2, both liquid cooled versions, and they are terrific.

    Sex and Gender in Virtual Worlds

    Well hellooo Scylla Had a feeling you might be by. Fair enough, I should have said "could'. But as the secret third party investigation is still under way, and that there seems to be some irregularities going on with it in regard to its impartiality and legality it may well turn out that my original statement will be correct. Time will tell. I take it from your timbre that you will not be signing the petition? PS Did you see what Barb Kay reported about WLU and their their tendency to eat their own? http://www.barbarakay.ca/articles/view/1234 PPS And by the way 'Expulsion' is one of the 'sanctions' permitted under their GSVP

    Sex and Gender in Virtual Worlds

    LOLed at this part The parenthetical part. Tangentially though despite how you identify if you were to suggest that binary view at WLU you would likely be sanctioned or suspended for creating a toxic environment. See my petition in Education Forum. ETA Sorry not MY petition but my thread.

    U Chicago has made a stand and some here are advocating for the adoption of their or similar principles.

    Petition re Lindsay Shepherd

    I would prefer not to turn thread into the location for that debate BJ. If you don't ant to sign that's fine. But if you are complaining about universities are then maybe clicking the link and signing will be a step in the right direct to change that. Up to you. ETA I just noticed the thread in GD that Morgan started Sex and Gender in Virtual Worlds. What is at stake here is that if a WLU student in particular had brought this topic up in a class at WLU or were to try and post it to the WLU Server for discussion or even tried to have a discussion like this at the Wilfs Pub there they would be liable to sanction by the University for creating a toxic environment. Seem reasonable to you? In the US where First Amendment is sacrosanct.

  14. I like GamersNexus Phoebe if you want to look here. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3076-intel-i7-8700k-review-vs-ryzen-streaming-gaming-overclocking Then there is this thread if you want to have a look from users. http://www.overclock.net/t/1639998/i7-8700k-overclock-results-and-settings#post_26392181 You gonna OC it? Delid? Note the comment on GamersNexus about the Gigabyte MB, not the one you specify but something to investigate. Might want to check MB VRM temps across manufacturers as well as some need direct cooling.
