Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 34” Gaming Monitor is Now Available - costs $1500

This monitor genuinely makes zero sense. It has the exact same specs as last years Alienware but without the fancy 3 year burn in warranty. The G-sync module version of the Alienware had an MSRP of $1,299.99 while the non-Gsync module version can be had for $1,099 and both typically be had for 10% off if you wait for the sale. The only difference seems to be that G8 OLED has their TV OS that allows for apps such as Geforce Now and other streaming stuff along with HDMI 2.1 and 5w speakers. But personally, with the ps5 and xbox series x having native support for 1440p these days, it's pretty dang pointless to pay the premium.

Linus buys a bunch of used mining cards and puts them through the test to see how well they stack up. Out of the ones he bought, only one or two had some issues while the rest performed as expected.

Fractal has been hitting it out of the park when it comes to their designs. Between the Torrent and now the North, their cases really have great styling while being competitive. The North has real wood in the front with two included case fans for only $130. Comes in two different colors. The only real problem is the optional side fan mounts as if you try to use them, you will have issues with GPUs and CPU coolers outside of AIOs making them generally pointless.
