    Doing a possible system swap. Worth it?

    Reason is that I bought a 1070ti for a steal and I'm pretty sure that my lowly 2500k will be bottlenecking it. I tried my friend's 1080 FE in my current system and Black Ops 3 was incredibly choppy with up and down spikes making it almost unplayable at 1080p even at low/mid settings. Looking to...

    Black Ops 3 spiking all over

    I used to run this game with mixed high/medium settings with a steady 70-80 FPS on a R9 290. I just got a GTX 1060 and I reformatted everything to start fresh. Installed the game and it plays from 20FPS - 120FPS. Extremely frustrating and almost unplayable because of the unbelievable spiking. I...

    Finally found a good GPU that's in stock

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAAM14R45884 Seems like as of late, retailers are always out of RX480 cards. I've been waiting since launch to be able to nab a third-party Sapphire or ASUS, but they're in the same boat as well, "out of stock". I've finally gotten to a point...

    Where are the RX 480 AIB cards?

    It seems like they are nowhere to be found. Nvidia's 1060 was launched almost 2 weeks after the RX 480 and it not only has retail availability, but their AIBs are up for grabs on Newegg. Fry's has 2 RX 480 reference cards on backorder. Microcenter doesn't have anything at all. AMD has nothing...

    [FS][US] Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC version 4GB (SOLD)

    I've never done a stress test on this thing, only gaming. Have never let it pass 80C with my fixed fan profile. The temps are after an hour of playing Battlefield 3 on 1080P ultra settings. It's able to go to 1030 core without a voltage increase and is stable (I never played with the voltages)...

    Sandforce SSDs. Where are they now??

    I haven't seen a single Sandforce-based SSD on the market in quite some time. They were some of the best/fastest drives in their heyday around 3 years ago. Did they go out of business?

    The Witcher save importing

    Ok, I just finished up The Witcher and I just couldn't wait more than a day before having to fire up Witcher 2. I kinda want to import my Witcher 1 save when starting a new game, but I'm given some weird saves which I have no idea what they mean. To summarize my game, I saved Adda during TW1...

    Anyone playing Mortal Kombat X yet?

    Since it's launch, I've been wanting to get Mortal Kombat X for PC, but I see soooooooo many people with a variety of problems from missing game modes, missing characters, and terrible online connectivity issues. My one friend plays it and has zero problems at 4K res, he said it's a great game...

    Any Intel Core M (Broadwell) laptops/tablets out there?

    I know the time is getting near or is now already, but are there any laptops that use Intel's new Broadwell CPUs? Thinking of getting a new lappy for school...I'm going back to college :toast: Or should I just wait for a Surface Pro 4 that will be around most likely next month along with Windows 10?

    [US] Newegg: Gigabyte R9 290 Windforce @ $549.99 w/ $50 gift card

    This is the best deal I've seen so far for this particular non-reference R9 290. Might be worthwhile to jump on it while it's still in stock. With the gift card, it effectively brings this cards price to $499.99 which isn't bad. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125500
