I think getting a 30-series would be fine when you decide to upgrade next—or can! If you want to stick with 1080p/1440p gaming, the 3060 or 3060 Ti would be a good upgrade, but again, it all comes down to how much you want to spend, what’s available, and if you care about that big performance bump between the 3060 and Read more

I mean, the reality of the situation is relevant IMO. The GPU shortage does not change my recommendation of the 3060 Ti over the 3060 for all the reasons I talk about in my review, but anyone is free to buy whatever card they want, regardless if they want to wait for a specific one to come back into stock, or they Read more

Absolutely. I have not used Bramble for lessons, and don’t intend to, but when it’s a free day for them to write or collaborate on a project, it’s a lot better than sitting in silence on Zoom. It can also serve as a nice way to host school events like an open house or poetry readings.
