  1. Old fashioned 1980x1020 here...I'm still using my old Acer Potato Monitor right now.
  2. No, but I did use irfanview color correction on that screenshot. I think I increased red and lowered green, just a slight touch up. I probably will add re-shade soon and also add the cloud mod.
  3. Question now that I’ve got my new rig built - are you guys using Steam for FS2020 or buying it direct? Any advantages or disadvantages of either?
  4. It's fast, lol. I still need to go back and tweak everything but it's like buttery fast in IL2 compared to my old rig...I'm sure there are faster rigs but I can't really tell the difference between 71 fps and 84 fps and don't really care to either. One thing that blows me away is how fast everything loads. It's unreal.
  5. Fantastic skin. Bully Lang died when he tried to fly an airplane with defective landing gear - could not get the gear to stay up but he took off with it anyway and it cost him his life when he and his wingman got bounced. (his wingman escaped and was the last person to see Lang going down with the gear extended)
  6. Turns out everything works fine - I installed the power lead to the motherboard 1 little pin over from where it was supposed to be. 🙄 Good news is I learned how to start my computer with a screwdriver lol. Now all I gotta do is set up and allocate my drives and move my files over from the old rig.
  7. Had to jump the damn thing to get it to start. I guess Lian Li sent a case with a bad switch. Not sure if i can replace the header or just go get a new case. Whatever, I'll have to take the damned thing back apart now 😧
  8. Supposedly there is now a way to mine using solid state drives. Micro Center said that’s the next thing they limit quantities of.
  9. Congrats on getting a card, especially from the comfort of your own home! But...$1849, that’s a lot of pesos for a graphic card.
  10. Sorry Julian, I’m all out of upvotes today, I’ll catch you tomorrow!
  11. Nice. I’ll be there for the May 28 drop - we will see what they come up with. May have to upgrade and sell my 3070 🥴
  12. Good to know. I'll be transferring via USB thumb drive. I've heard the keys are purchased from China and resold at a small profit, but they are completely legit...and Microsoft has no regional lock on keys. (yet) Please stay tuned for more dumb questions as I'll probably start my build sometime next week.
  13. I'm assuming everyone is just using the USB download/ cheap-key method for your OS? Are there any disadvantages to this? Any advantages for paying for a retail USB/key? Also - would like to hear your favorite/best advice for transferring files/games from the old computer? I do have a bunch of games on Steam, but IL2 I purchased through the web site. Thanks.
  14. I hope you get one but the way things are going, you won’t be paying retail for a 3090 anywhere without doing something outside of the box like I did. And camping out is what you make of it. We had a blast. If they didn’t have the 1 per household per month I’d grab you one and ship it.
  15. How I acquired a video card, if it helps anyone. Cliff's Notes version: 1. Arrive Micro Center Marietta, Ga. at midnight Thursday for the Friday 7AM stock drop. 2. Place camping chairs at end of line, claim this territory as our (my son and I) place in line. 3. Find sign in sheet, sign it and discover I'm 33rd in line. (this is a crucial step)(I'll come earlier next time) 4. Realize nobody intends to stay in their actual chairs overnight (cold night) and will be sleeping in their vehicles. 5. Have fun doing whatever it takes to get you through the night. 6. Wake up between 5AM-6

  17. Waited overnight at Micro Center in Marietta. Scored an RTX 3070 Strix. Really should have just done this sooner. Here she is:
  18. Update: Spent the night outside MicroCenter with about 60 other fine folks. Scored me an RTX 3070 Strix 😀
  19. Whatever I can get my hands on at a MicroCenter stock drop. Sick of online scams and secondary market price gougers. Looks like I’m about to spend the night there in hopes of getting a voucher. Almost got a used 1080 from a local builder. It’s still a great card from what I gather.
