  1. Lol, well thanks for quoting me in this. September is seasonally a bad month for stocks but damn who would've known about the Evergrande thing. Also got the Fed meeting on Tuesday. Was hard to look at my portfolio today but I spent the day selling put credit spreads that expire this week to offset some of the loss. Hopefully that works out for me
  2. I agree, if you're just looking for a fund to invest in and not individual stock picking, you really can't go wrong with an ETF. Even QQQ wouldn't be bad for low risk and decent anuualized returns. Yeah it's growth, but even if the Fed starts tapering in November I really cant see a growth/tech ETF correcting more than 15% in the worst case scenario. Just look how much the VIX came down in the past 12 months. I do feel like the market as a whole may have a correction sometime this month, but even then I can't see that being more than 5%.
  3. Just wanted to chime in one more time about the Powercolor Red Devil 6800XT I purchased. So the issue with display not being detected and random crashes actually continued further to the point where I could never get the display detected. I switched back to the 1070 and same thing - no display. So at this point I'm frustrated and feeling defeated. And of course I tried clearing cmos and trying the other pcie slot. At least i knew by this point that it could not be the 6800xt since the 1070 is not even outputting a display now. Until I looked online and tried removing a stick of ram, i was finally able to get into bios and windows. My ram stick wasnt faulty though. I reset all my CPU and RAM overclocks, stuck the other stick back in, reinstalled the 6800XT, and everything was flawless after that. Seems it was the overclocks in my system that was causing problems with the card not displaying and crashing. but my god this card is a alright lol.
  4. Alright so I did get the card earlier than expected but I needed a few days to play around with it. The card is very nice. Stays pretty cool and fan noise isn't a problem. I did however experience some problems upon installation like crashing and display not being detected. but its seems fine now and i have almost no issues now. very strange though. Performance is awesome and is definitely a noticeable upgrade from my 1070. I ran Timespy with +15% power and 2400 - 2500 Mhz. Graphics score: 18,368 https://www.3dmark.com/spy/20967168
  5. im trying to view this thread but the whole site is unformateed for me right now. Server error?
  6. I see that this thread is a ghost town but I will definitely share my experience with it when i get my Powercolor Red Devil friday. I really didnt want to buy anything like this in the current market but for $1,400 used off ebay it looked like a steal compared to the other nvidia cards right now. Plus I made some money on the stock market soooo why not? lol
