NerdSpeak / @TuMadreATR (aka JudixJarf) is to thank for my notification on multiple Elite Member queue times, but there's a few threads on the EVGA Forum that update when new product queues will be created for Elite Members 24 hours before going live to everyone else. It took 8 months to get the 3090 notify.

It showed up (Replaced the cheap Amazon Special, Made in China desk fan that failed on me with one that's more than 100 years old):

That fan is too expensive to use. Maybe you should get a cheap fan to replace it with when you need to use it. 🤣

Perhaps, but It does help tell a story about something that once was and will likely never be again.

 

For instance, see that GE plaque behind it in the image? That came out of an engine room of one of the many liberty ships built and used during WWII. Per Wikipedia, Liberty ships were a class of cargo ship built in the United States during World War II. Though British in concept, the design was adopted by the United States for its simple, low-cost construction. Mass-produced on an unprecedented scale, the Liberty ship came to symbolize U.S. wartime industrial output.

I'm an Elite member and I never get a notification despite being on all of the waiting lists.

 

But...now I figured out how to inject AMD FSR into pretty much any game so I don't think I need a GPU upgrade now 🙂

...may be there are a whole lot of Ampere GPUs on those container ships, waiting, waiting, waiting...

I think I'm a bit behind, so here are a few recent purchases:

 

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra:

EVGA GeForce RTX 3060Ti XC:

20210923_195743.thumb.jpg.e98a9f7aa0bff4da77d67fdc331b25f1.jpg

 

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070Ti FTW3 Ultra (sold the first one, got a new one from eu.evga.com):

20211009_215319.thumb.jpg.dd39a231985cfa9283472187a9707663.jpg

 

A complete system, this will all be installed in the SilverStone SUGO 14 Mini-ITX case I won with the ETF (most likely going to my nephew):

GIGABYTE B550I AORUS PRO AX (M-ITX)

AMD Ryzen 5 1600AF

G.Skill 16GB DDR4-3200 

Samsung 980 500GB SSD

SilverStone DA650-G

Now we only need to find a decent GPU...

 

Samsung 980 Pro 1TB SSD for the main system:

Belkin power strip for the workstation (3680w max):

I think this is it, or most of it 😄

I've never seen that viral video until a moment ago, because I've seen those memes pop up everywhere not knowing what it was I had to look it up 😂
