    Spare Computer Video Card Upgrade?

    If you are going to throw a new video card, your fps would be lower than getting a modern cpu and you might find the CPU throttling. But most titles will be playable. Your options are: 1. If you want to buy now, buy a 66xx card for 1080p gaming. 2. If you can wait till thanksgiving, you ll...

    Spare Computer Video Card Upgrade?

    The key question is what you want to do with it. If you want to play games, what games do you want to play with it? I don't think your CPU is going to throttle with a new card on it. I do think that depending on the deal you may find on a particular day, a 6600 or 6600xt are the best GPUs on...

    I love the smell of burning oil in the morning - The Formula 1 2022 season

    I ll say it again. Over the past couple of years that I 've been following closely, the one driver that has impressed me with his ability to consistently take more from his car is Alonso. And the thing is every time, he does it in a different way, as he seems to have an endless bag of tricks up...

    Leclerc's last lap was on fire, but I am thinking he benefited from Sainz' tow. However, it's the second race in a row that Perez has outqualified Verstappen. Maybe he will end up competing for the title this year after all. Having said that, so far in the season Red Bull had better race...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Green is smart if he's taking advantage of the rules. As I have said many times, the rules are created in order to foster a particular type of spectacle. Is tiki taka, passive aggressive bullshit the type of spectacle most people want to see? If yes, let Green be smart and do his thing. If...

    I am saying the exact opposite.

    Green put up his legs above Brown deliberately. More importantly Green exactly where the line was and tip toed around it. Watch how he pulled Brown's shorts just enough to annoy him, but not enough to appear obvious.

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    I agree in principle, but I thought that Green's behavior during that broohaha was entirely calculated with the aim of provoking a bad reaction by Brown. I am ok with cutting some slack for someone who loses his cool in the heat of the moment. But when someone deliberately engages in those type...

    Rosberg is on Sky all the time. Verstappen wasn't pissed about Perez, he said these things happen to Monaco so one has to accept them and move on.

    It''s like the car 90%, how can it not? Russel both this year and in 2020 is a prime example. In 2020, he couldn't come close to scoring points with Williams for the whole season, he gets to substitute Hamilton for a race due to COVID and he ends up leading the race only to lose it thanks to a...

    As for tomorrow, I am rooting for Sainz's first win.

    I love the smell of burning oil in the morning - The Formula 1 2022 season

    A little bit late for this, but I have watched the Miami GP and the race seemed somewhat boring. But then, I saw the various highlight packages F1 releases on youtube and it seemed like there was a lot of things happening in the midfield. I think Miami was either 1st or 2nd on overtakes or...

    2022 NBA Playoffs Gamethread

    Apparently, Redick has his own podcast now that the Youtube algorithm feeds me constantly and he features a lot of interesting discussions with NBA players and analysts.
