The Best Gaming PC Deals: New RTX 3080 PCs at Newegg

By tracy

These days the average Joe is favoring portability over power. Laptops definitely have more versatility when raw horsepower isn’t a factor. Gamers, however, are a different story. No matter how far gaming laptops have come, they still pale in comparison to the benefits of the gaming desktop PC. The advantages are numerous. A gaming PC is massively more powerful than a gaming laptop at the same price point. A gaming PC can be upgraded to keep up with the times. The vast majority of laptops cannot be upgraded other than the RAM and hard drive, thus locking you in until you buy yet another new laptop. A gaming PC gives you the flexibility of a better, larger monitor. Yes, you can attach an external monitor to your laptop, but then you’ve spent needless dollars on your built-in display. The gaming PC offers better ergonomics compared to your traditional laptop setup. Here are the best deals we’ve found on bona fide gaming desktops. We will update this article regularly.

Here’s a 3D printed RTX 3080 piggy bank while you save up for the real deal

By tracy

Good luck getting your hands on an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080—it’s the hottest selling GPU right now, along with the much more expensive 3090. But while you might not be able to find one in stock for a bit, you can 3D print a miniature replica that is also a piggy bank.

Take those sour lemons and make some sweet lemonade, in other words. Use it as a swear jar to fast track your savings (if you have a potty mouth), or otherwise just keep dumping change into the thing until you’ve saved up enough coin to fund a GPU upgrade. Hopefully by the time you do, there will be ample stock. Or you could be ironic and save up for a Radeon RX 6000 card, which AMD suggests will be in ample supply.

Regardless, the design is the creation of Nils Kal, who uploaded the schematic to Prusa Printers (via OC3D). It is “scaled down a bit to fit on the MK3 print bed,” but you can scale it to 142 percent if you want a true-to-life replica of the Founders Edition model. There is also a schematic that nixes the money slot.

Mafia: Definitive Edition Review – Loyal To A Fault

By tracy

Mafia: Definitive Edition is an interesting time capsule that not only lets players experience Tommy Angelo’s rise in an ersatz ‘30s-era Chicago dubbed Lost Heaven, but will likely inspire greater appreciation for how far the industry has come since 2002. Hangar 13 has rebuilt the nearly 20-year-old game, bringing the visuals up to contemporary standards and adding a few quality-of-life enhancements while ultimately respecting the original’s core design. It’s an admirable approach, but then you have to actually play the damned thing.

The early Mafia games used their open worlds differently than their competitors, with cities that aren’t really interactive playgrounds, but are more similar to film soundstages. You’re free to peel off from the next story beat and explore side streets and back roads, but don’t expect to find much in the way of optional activities or interesting secrets. Instead, the narrative relentlessly drives you forward, with the end of one chapter propelling you right into the start of the next. Need to catch your breath? Too bad! It’s an interesting approach, and one that I’d probably enjoy more if the story was more engaging. Unfortunately, Angelo’s tale is disjointed and boring, with time skips that undermine how you’re

Origin EON15-X Gaming Laptop Review

By tracy
Origin has made a name for itself by allowing its customers to completely customize nearly every aspect of their computers. Whether it’s a gaming PC or gaming laptop, you can pick and choose the parts and pieces on the inside – and even customize the outside – to create your own personalized prebuilt gaming rig.The EON15-X is just one of the latest examples of this approach from Origin. With this build, you get the option of a desktop AMD processor and either an RTX 2060 Max-P or 2070 Max-P GPU. The end result is a desktop-class computer in a laptop chassis, and outside of a couple of issues, it’s a dream to use.

Specs

There’s a wide variety of configurations and builds you can purchase from Origin. On the low end, you’re looking at a build priced around $1,700. If you really want to get crazy, you can put together a version of the EON15-X that will cost $4,312.

I’ve been testing a build that walks the line down the middle. Here are the specifications of the Origin EON15-X I’ve been testing:

  • Model: Origin EON15-X (NH57AF1)
  • Display: 15.6-inch IPS 144Hz FHD (1,920 x 1,080)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 3900
