    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...

    R9 Fury Spiking GPU Load

    I'd assume some do. I know it's not the most stressful game. But it's massively popular. And I would imagine that if the Fury suffers the RX480 would as well. Also if CS:GO is not stressful enough, Indie games are more popular than ever now. I would imagine most of those would fall under the...

    R9 Fury Spiking GPU Load

    Nope, his frame rates are all over the place. Basically look at his GPU Load and imagine that's his FPS. If CS:GO is too light of a load there must be some way to trick it into thinking it's not. I can't imagine everyone with a Fury is just dealing with this issue.

    R9 Fury Spiking GPU Load

    A friend just picked up a R9 Fury, an upgrade from his old GTX 950. He mostly plays CS:GO and didn't matter settings before he got around 200 fps on his 950. But his FPS is much worse with the R9 Fury. His GPU usage was low he said, I had him get this...

    TPU Capture Auto Zoom

    No Ease of Access Magnifer, it's turned off. I'll post a screen of a me trying to do a full desktop screenshot. It's a pretty massive zoom, pretty much makes the program unusable.

    TPU Capture Auto Zoom

    Not sure where else to post this since it isn't listed in the TPU Software section. But when I hit print screen it instantly zooms in. If I try to take a fullscreen shot it only takes the zoomed in window. Any ideas here?

    how to configure bandicam to work on windows 8

    Are you just trying the trial version or have you bought a licence? If just on a trial, I'd highly suggest using Dxtory instead. A lot more features (to make files small with good quality, and use numerous audio tracks). If you have a key though and are stuck with Bandi, then what issues are...

    Former Ubi devs tread new ground (ANCESTORS: The Humankind Odyssey)

    I like the History of the World Part 1's version. Though I will say I think the way they are moving through time (albeit backwards) it reminded me more of this (just the opposite direction).

    Microsoft's E3 Conference

    For the longest time Tomb Raider basically was just Playstations. Sure the original released on Saturn (but really how many played it there) and on PC (same here). And many of the next games were just PS and PC, pretty sure it was PS pulling the weight on the sales on building the franchise. I...
