    So I was checking in to see what the word was on when Rocket Lake is coming out because I am really itching to build my new PC... Then I learned that Rocket Lake is going to be the final iteration of Intel's aging 14nm tech and that its 10nm successor Alder Lake is already scheduled for late 2021... Urgh!!!

    Guess I will be building an Alder Lake/RTX 4090 PC for Christmas 2021 instead! I'm kinda wishing I popped an RTX 2080 in my system in the summer as I originally planned. Might still do something similar...

    EDIT: I guess the RTX 2000 series cards are all gone now and the supply of RTX 3000 series cards are all backordered... Great.

    So, after many months of talking about, my brother built me a new PC with his RTX 2080ti graphics card. needless to say, this thing is incredible! I was playing Control and it's just so damn gorgeous with the Ray tracing. Feels good to have both a PS5 and a high end gaming PC too.

    Is that tempered glass? Be careful not to accidentally kick your case if it's under your desk.

    Congrats on the new PC. :)

    Congrats @Gothamsknight on the new rig. If we are trading some battlestation shots, here is my old warhorse:

    She is a bit long in the tooth, but I want to wait until Intel comes out with their Alder Lake processors later this year. I was going to do a Rocket Lake/GTX 3--- build this spring, but from what I have been reading Alder Lake/GTX 4--- represents a bigger advance.

    Yes saw the IndieGogo page awhile back. The cheapest model without the base comes at $1000 CAD and that's just not a practical expense personally.

    If I'm going to spend that much for gaming, I'd rather invest it into a new PC build. It's a niche product, really.

    Ugh my PC seems like it is finally on its way out after 11 years, but I don't have the cash to get the Threadripper 64 core like I want.
