I've entered a raffle at an online computer store. The winners get invited to buy a RTX3080.
Also, I'm refreshing a page every couple of minutes at another store because I was told their RTX3080s will be listed around 11pm tonight. First in first serve, no back-ordering.

I wonder if the page change detection software will work.

Hah, sort of like Scion's First 86 program. When telling the story I always say it figures the first time I win a contest of substance it was just a chance to spend my own money earlier.

The Oculus Quest 2 went on sale at their site yesterday. I placed an order for one. I've been real happy with the original Quest, particularly when sideloaded to run PC VR wirelessly, but the 2 has a lot of features the 1 is missing (higher resolution, better processor, etc). Plus now we'll be able to play some 2up games at our house.

Off topic of the off topic topic. Did anyone manage to get a PS5? Or no interest here?

I didn't try, I'm controller-challenged. Two of my sons did but no luck.

Sucks. I think I managed to get one, pre-order hasn't bounced yet.

Slowly, but surely, I am becoming a little more controller challenged. I think it's due to the amount of twitch shooters I play on PC now, but it's destroying my wrist lol.

Prices for the RTX3080 range from AUD$$1,139 to $1,469 on one website. While it is affordable it is a little more than I was hoping to spend. Which is good in a way because now I can wait without angst for the RTX 3070 release, which is probably going to be adequate for 1440p, and the announcement of AMD's cards. I would like to support AMD if their cards are up to it but fear of their drivers makes me think I will stick with Nvidia regardless.
We'll see.

Back in the day, (1997) I bought an IBM Aptiva S90 for over $6 grand. It had two expansion slots. I needed one for my Sound Blaster card with the digital game port. In order to get the best video I opted for an Obsidian2 X-12 (two 6MB cards SLI'd on a single board. It listed for over $900! I was working lots of overtime and had sold my gun collection so I went and spent stupid money on computer stuff. With my sound system, wheel and Thrustmaster H.O.T.A.S. system I had over $10 grand into my computer just to play Falcon 4 and GP 2.

Yea, but you had that brilliant 800x600 display! Couldn't ask for more than that.

My rig is getting old... it's time for me to start building a new one.
How's an i7 10700K + RTX 3080 sound for VR these days?

It's already out?

I haven't really paid attention to consoles since switching over to PC 7 years ago, save for my Switch.
