    Upgrade from a R9 290...RX 580 or Vega 56??

    I am using an RX580 right now. No complaints about it, way more powerful than my old GTX770.

    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    I remember the COD4. Main thing I remember is that me and W1z didn't get along on the layout.

    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    Dear god, that was a long time ago. I can't even remember the games that we reviewed for that. Wanting to say Fallout 3.

    14 Game Giveaway!

    Blood Knights. Kingdoms: New lands. As for getting hurt, well I have a ton of these stories. I will pick the dumbest for your amusement. This happened when I was 16. My dad and I were doing some electrical work for a friend, well my dad was doing the work, I was more or less standing around...

    How often should we upgrade

    I hadn't touched my rig since 2014. I5 4670K, GTX 770, mechanical hard drive, Windows 7 and 8gb of ram. That rig was still beefy enough to power just about anything. I was getting some windows errors that needed a clean install, so I got an SSD, 16gb of ram, windows 10, and an RX580. Since I...

    [FS][US] EVGA GTX 770 4gb FTW edition.

    Just upgraded to an RX580, so I am selling off my old EVGA GTX 770 FTW. It's still a pretty danged powerful card, it wasn't lagging on any of my games in 1080P. My heatware is old, but perfect 77-0-0, in fact, you can see where I bought this card back in 2014. Bare card, I don't have the box for...

    Mazdas new petrol engine doesn't need spark plugs and is 30% more efficient.

    Diesels suffer from a poor RPM range, they make great power, just not for very long. That's why a lot of your semis have so damned many gears, the usable RPM range is too narrow. The modern diesel solved a lot of the power problems by moon boosting with a turbo. You get a compression based...

    Mazdas new petrol engine doesn't need spark plugs and is 30% more efficient.

    Detonation is technically compression ignition, just unintentional and not timed. It's also a great way to blow a hole in your piston. It's also a great way to do this to a head gasket. With direct injection coming to gasoline engines, it was only a matter of time before a compression based...

    Want to be the Face of TechPowerUp?

    Good question. I already host my own youtube "How to" series. 800+ subscribers to my channel and 209K views since the start of the year. The questions would be on responsibilities, hours, and compensation (if any).

    A Memorial to Kreij - Holiday 2017 PC build and Giveaway- Congrats to the Winners!!!

    He was. I knew him online for years, chatted with him a lot. That man went through a lot in his life and he never failed to brighten someone elses day when he had the chance. I really wished that I could have met him in person. Great job to everyone for keeping his legacy alive.

    Damn it, this sucks. I can honestly say that he made a difference in my life. RIP Dean.

    Diablo 3 multiple treasure seekers ???????

    There was a helluva lot more than 15 in that one. I would estimate more like 25 or 30. Bet you killed 15 on your own and I killed 4 or 5 more on top of that. Was epic, even thought I got dogshit for loot.

    I can't find that game!

    Black and White 2 comes to mind. As does Age of Empires.

    A new Unreal Tournament game supposedly to reveal May 8th

    Hoping they make it fast paced again. UT2k4 is by far my favorite online FPS game. UT3 came out and it was boring, too slow, too vehicle focused. Great, now I'm feeling nostalgic, going to dig out 2k4.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order Teased

    IMO doom 3 was crap when it came out, but it aged like a fine wine. I think HL2 pwned it and it pwned the technology at the time, but once the tech caught up, I thought it was decent. Not DOOM in the slightest, but a good game.

    Looking for RTS

    I had a difficult time grasping the COH style. Could be that I grew up on Blizzard RTS's and AOE RTS's. If you've played a blizzard RTS, you can plug right into an AOE game, but with something like Sup Com or COH, it's completely different. Hell, even ground control and the lord of the rings...

    Just got a GTX 770 so I am selling my HD7850. It's a Sapphire Dual X OC edition. Complete with box and all accessories. Works perfectly. Sold it. Heatware - http://heatware.com/eval.php?id=56110

    Looking for RTS

    Starcraft 2 is one of the best IMO. Mussels and I probably have 5K hours, maybe more into it. Supreme Commander is good too, if you like a large scale warfare style. Much slower, more macro focused than micro. I never could get into Company of Heroes, the learning curve is steep, as is the...
