    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    Well, after talking about PPI and looking around I ended up deciding to move up to 3440x1440 and decided that a VA panel with it's ghosting wouldn't do. I had someone offer me a Alienware AW3418DW for $850 and I probably should have bought that. But oh well. I ended up snagging a Acer Predator...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    That's what I'm getting at. I play ARK, it is horribly optimized. Plus even well optimized games have their dips and issues too. My OP says 21:9 is where I am looking and I linked two 21:9 monitors in it. Well I'm playing on a 1080p 46" right now, so it won't be worse than this. But I do...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    I didn't say the difference between a 1070 and a 1080 was 5%, in fact I didn't mention a 1070 at all except for to say they had already gone up in price so I didn't buy one. I said that was the performance difference between a high OC'd 980 ti and a 1080, and I'm not wrong. Plenty of people have...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    There's no point in saving any money for a videocard upgrade. I have a GTX 980 ti that's highly overclocked. The next step up from that which is a very small one is a GTX 1080. And with the price boom a used GTX 1080 is about $700 on ebay... I bought my card for $375 used in the summer. I'm not...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    G-sync as far as I know shines while under 60 fps. I'm not really worried about cracking 144fps or 100fps to be honest. I play ARK a lot, it usually is under 60 FPS at 1920x1080. So I would see a nice benefit there. I'm of the school of thought that it's not maximum FPS that matters, but...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    I didn't realize RAM went up to. Looks like the DDR4 I bought back in 2014 is $40 more than it was then. So Monitors, Videocards, and RAM. As you said, processors seem to be fine as do mobo's and hard drives. When the videocard market started going crazy in the summer I sold my old 290x. I sold...

    Picking a New Monitor (whats with these prices and options?!)

    My wifes monitor died last year so I gave her mine and then adopted our old 46" TV as a monitor. Well we had this for almost a decade and it's starting to go. So it's time to move on. Now my dilemma is, the last time I bought a monitor (that 27"). The only real options was LCD or LED backlight...

    W10 Moving Windows to Monitor 1 After Waking.

    Strange how Display Port works. But for me even when I went to DVI my monitor still acted the same (really strange). I finally did fix mine. My primary monitor was running straight off HDMI and the secondary was running off DVI through an adapter to HDMI. So I swapped my HDMI cables around and...

    CoD WWII

    I've honestly never been a CoD fan. I didn't even like CoD4 and people talk about that like it's Holy Grail material. I've owned numerous of their games over the years and gave them fair tries, but just never had me. But the new trend of rocket jumping and rocket sliding really killed it for me...

    CoD WWII

    I'm interested, only because of my disappointment with other FPS games at the moment. Will be keeping my eye on it, this seems different than anything they have done since CoD 3.

    OFFICIAL Battlefield 1 (Discussion)

    Worse than snipers. Snipers are on hills and out skirts, can use the 5 D's of Dodgeball for the most part. But when you come into a room and a guys hiding in a corner and no friendly players are near that could have chased him there. Like camping under some stairs. With packed maps that kind of...

    OFFICIAL Battlefield 1 (Discussion)

    Has anyone else been disappointed that the custom server sizes are gone? I want to enjoy the game, but it just feels too crowded. Too many people for too small of maps. Feels like playing COD on finding someone around every corner. Always loved BF for open flanking maneuvers. When FPS's get...

    W10 Moving Windows to Monitor 1 After Waking.

    From my understanding is DP treats sleep differently than HDMI/DVI/VGA. When a monitor goes into sleep mode is loses the handshake it had. And when it does that, the things that are suppose to remain on that monitor move. Though kind of weird since only my windows were moving and not my icons...

    W10 Moving Windows to Monitor 1 After Waking.

    I run a two monitor setup, got a 1920x1080 main screen and had a 4:3 1280x1024 second monitor for a long time. But finally upgraded my second monitor last week to a 24" 1920x1080 Samsung LED. Scored it for $30, and super happy with it except one thing. I use my main monitor for gaming. The...

    R9 Fury Spiking GPU Load

    That's what that clockblocker did. You can see his clocks were solid and high up. But the useage just dropped randomly. Also was thinking about it. Stressful game or not. You can see it hit 80 or 90% usage, then drop right back to 0%. So it's putting enough stress to ramp the card way up, don't...
