    Nvidia 3d vision 1440p?

    Does nvidia 3d vision support 1440p resolution? I've been trying to find the info on the Web and can't seem to find the answer. I've also read that it's possible to use other glasses than the ones nvidia sell, But only through 3d tv play. Is it also possible to use em with nvidia 3d vision...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Yes I looked up the gigabyte gaming ultra mobo x99 you recommended and it doesn't have an optical input for xbox one. Anyhow I believe I found a solution to this. The astro mixamp.

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Oh and I forgot to ask: I sometimes play the xbox one with friends. I was wondering if I could use the motherboard "on board audio" to give the "dolby headphone" virtual surround sound effect to my sennheiser pc360 headset or if I'll mandatorely need a soundcard for this (or external DAC amp) ??

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Thanks. Final questions and I'll be set: 1. Should I only install Windows and drivers and important programs on the m.2 drive? Or would games benefit from it? 2. I'm starting to wrap my head around the pci-e lanes notion. If I got this right: 28 lanes come from the CPU (i7 6850k) and 12...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Yes I agree. Although I haven't added more questions. To me this thread is complete. I didn't think we'd talk about the rest of the build. I just thought by creating a CPU thread, the CPU geeks would be happy to advise Whereas PSUs are en entirely different beast. But yes, I don't mind unifying...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    Budget is not a problem indeed. So your suggestions do make sense. It's just I'm the type of guy who likes to understand what he's buying According to my own research at this moment in time, the i7 processors are not that favoured for Gaming, meaning an overclocked i5 processor seems to do the...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    I've not said or done anything final, like any wise man, I check and double check mate. I'm considering sli only because I like having mucho frames on a high refresh rate monitor. At the same time I'm very aware of the poor support for sli. So in my head it's either gonna be GTX 1080 sli or a...

    EarthDog are these prices you're giving me in CAD? @FreedomEclipse I don't think it would be that overkill considering the monitor I got can do 165hz. Went with acer xb241yu

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    Alright last question: Say I go for a single GTX 1080 or eventually 1080ti Why go got i7 6800k or i7 6700k I thought those were only ever good if you do heavy streaming or 3d rendering photoshop and stuff I only do gaming (mostly) Everything I read point towards the i5 Why do you guys...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    my bad guys, I should have mentionned the fact that I sold my previous PC a few months ago, Ive been gaming on a weaker system for a little while. (I was doing way more hours at work and needed some money for a while, now money is good and my work hours have come back to normal) I should have...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Well, I don't mind spending the little extra $$$. Everybody on this thread is telling me to get as low as 550w or as high as 1200w, figured I'd take something a little bit above my actual "need" just in case some new techs come out requiring more power or if SLI becomes hot again at some point...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    my hesitation comes from the 6700k vs 7700k benchmarks... they seem to be pretty much the same performance. The 7th gen apparantly overclocks a bit higher (like 200-300mhz more) but everything else seems similar. In fact, I'm thinking it'd probably be wise to take advantage of the price drop on...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    alright then, WHICH CPU would you recommend (intel) if I go with gtx 1080 sli? and WHICH CPU would you recommend if I go with a single gtx 1080?

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    I'm citing a user from the hardware canucks forum here: "Ya, that was me. I have DDC PWM, 4 1850rpm GTs, 5930k at 4.5ghz and SLI 1080 founders under water OCed to 2100mhz and peaking around 810w full load. I would say 1000w is plenty with how lean Pascal is on power. 1200w if you want tons of...

    Which CPU to buy for GTX 1080 sli build

    I'd like your opinion on which CPU to buy. This rig will be for Gaming mostly. I'll going to cool that CPU with a custom water build. There are so many choices since the arrival of koby Lake processors, I'm a bit confused. Should I grab a Intel sixth get cpu because the price just dropped...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Alright guys. One last question. As for psu wattage. Would a 850w be more than enough for GTX 1080 sli plus cpu OC plus custom water loop and fans? Or would you say I'd be on the safe side with 1000w? If it's any help, I intend to eventually upgrade to a ti card. The most gpu horsepower I...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    This thread is the most entertaining in a while. Feels like the YouTube comment section. Some more clarifications: I do not intend to leave the pc on its highest over clock 24/7. But I do intend to let the water loop run 24/7 because of the reasons I mentioned earlier. Feel free to educate...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    Well I didn't expect to spark an argument here lol. More details I should have mentioned. I need fully modular I will run a custom waterloop 24/7 Unless there is some benefit to turning the loop off. I've got this idea in my head that somehow 24/7 is better for water. I don't like the idea of...

    PSU for GTX 1080 sli

    what about the psu certification? is it worth it to get a gold certified or plat or titanium? I admit I'm a bit confused regarding what it means in real life vs corp hype
