We have begun adding more specific gamepads. If yours is missing, do let us know so we can add it.
I wanted to build an all new rig at once but I might have to space it out. My 1080 is still doing okay even though I want to rejoin Team Red but things are at the point where I am asking too much from my 4790k. It lived a long life, longer than any other gap between new PCs for me, but it's just not cutting it anymore.
I'm torn between waiting until later this year to see the shiny new AMD stuff coming out but at the same time, a current gen Ryzen would still be a massive upgrade and more mature.
Supposedly new fabs will start operating by the end of 2022.
Honestly, refresh rates are a bit crazy nowadays. I'm upgrading from 60 Hz for the first time, and there's a dizzying range of Hz above 120 now. Do you want a monitor with a refresh rate of 144 Hz? 150 Hz? 160? 165? It's like, I can accept that people see a difference between 60 and 120 Hz, or even 120 and 240 or other stupidly high numbers…but I refuse to accept that anyone sees a difference between 165 and 170 Hz (that's a < 3% difference), like the articles I've seen that literally say things like "This monitor has a 160 Hz native refresh rate, and it can be overclocked to 165 Hz!" Can we just settle on a smaller number of standard refresh rates, please, preferably in larger increments than 5 Hz? I don't care whether it's multiples of 24 (144 Hz, 240 Hz), 30 (60 Hz, 120 Hz) or 5 (165 Hz), just pick one standard and stick with it.

With adaptive sync there is no need to make some standard increments. It's basically, whatever the panel can handle :)
Congrats on the new monitor!

Could be bit of a can of worms. There's only handful DE:s, but as far as window managers go, there's much more. Might need separate graph at least. I would like to know how many twm users there are
I actually decided to buy a complete new rig, since the whole PC with a 3070Ti did cost almost the same as the card itself... and since that a half year passed.
Vendors seem to still get them at reasonable prices
Given, I did not like my old rig and I wanted a passively cooled one, all in all it did cost me about 400 more for the whole PC than buying the card itself.
Silent (heatpipe cooled), tripled the RAM which is faster, special silent case, good SSD, and a stable mainboard (my old was a real pain).
