    GTX 1080 Ti Help Gigabyte vs MSI

    It's almost impossible for a GPU to die of heat nowadays. Apart from the ridiculously overspecced coolers on the cards (Gigabyte's are specified for something like 500W of heat dissipation), the GPU itself has thermal throttling built in to prevent it from ever getting too hot. You do have to...

    What went wrong with my EVGA Precision XOC?

    @Black Panther Are you using this mod? I have also had issues with it and any software that adds overlays (Steam, Afterburner, etc.). I would say try MSI Afterburner and see if that works, because as others have said, PrecisionX is a POS.

    NVIDIA Announces TITAN V "Volta" Graphics Card

    Now consider that (a) this isn't the top-tier fully-enabled Volta part (b) Navi is nowhere to be seen and it's pretty obvious that NVIDIA is kicking AMD while they're down, and enjoying it.

    Colorful iGame GTX 1070 Ti Vulcan X TOP 8 GB

    The 1080 U-Top looks like a very well-built card, not sure why you would think otherwise. Get it, enjoy it, be happy.

    NVIDIA Announces TITAN V "Volta" Graphics Card

    This is now the second card (after 1070 Ti) that NVIDIA released but didn't need to. AMD, on the other hand, absolutely needs custom Vega variants to be released but they're nowhere to be seen. People bitching that NVIDIA is ripping customers off by charging $3,000 for a graphics card, would...

    AMD Officially but Silently Downgrades Radeon RX 560 with an 896 SP Variant

    The bean-counters who push these "brilliant" ideas are the same people who have no understanding that it takes 20 years to build a reputation, and 5 minutes to destroy it.

    Colorful iGame GTX 1070 Ti Vulcan X TOP 8 GB

    No question, the 1080.

    Forum upgrade complete

    I don't like how it looks but I'm sure I'll get used to it. That's what she said.

    AMD Officially but Silently Downgrades Radeon RX 560 with an 896 SP Variant

    A better question would be - why are you still surprised that every thread about NVIDIA or AMD or Intel turns into a flamewar? It's almost an official Internet rule at this point.

    NVIDIA Announces TITAN V "Volta" Graphics Card

    You're right - it'll probably perform better.

    AMD Officially but Silently Downgrades Radeon RX 560 with an 896 SP Variant

    Is Jism the official TPU AMD apologist?

    PowerColor Announces Next-Gen Gaming Station eGFX Enclosure

    USB hub and ethernet is super useful because it essentially turns this thing into a docking station. I'd love to have an ultrabook that I can use for work, then when I get home just plug in a single Thunderbolt cable and have a dedicated keyboard, mouse, wired ethernet, and discrete graphics to...

    AMD Officially but Silently Downgrades Radeon RX 560 with an 896 SP Variant

    I can't see any good reason for AMD to do this. Do they want a lawsuit? Just name the 896SP variant "RX 550" FFS, problem solved.

    How many people still use sound cards?

    That was implied :)

    How many people still use sound cards?

    The last time I used a discrete sound card was when PCs didn't have audio built into the motherboard. The last time I used a 3.5mm audio jack was probably 3+ years ago, because that's when I switched to a wireless USB headset and have never looked back. Hence I neither know nor care how good or...

    I need a good space sandbox game

    I'm assuming the EVE-like part you're looking for doesn't involve getting griefed by random assholes. Because you can find that in pretty much any MMORPG.

    Man, I am going to laugh so hard when this idiot's "rocket" crashes and he dies.

    Battlefield 1 Turning Tides Expansion to Drop on December 11

    Jesus, how much did EA pay for all the linkage in this post? I mean, I understand how that's the only way they can still get people to buy their bland, derivative, unoriginal, yearly shooter trash, but I had hoped that with the Battlefront 2 saga and EA just being all-around a** badgers, TPU...

    Aquantia Black Friday Deals: AQtion 5G NIC for $59 and 10G NIC for $69

    I like how you have the crippling inability to tell the physical difference between a very obviously physically different PCIe x4 and PCIe x1 card.

    That's great, except that copper 10GbE switches are still horribly expensive.

    QNAP Unveils QBoat Sunny Single-Board IoT Mini Server

    This would potentially make for a nice pfSense box... if pfSense officially supported ARM, that is. Interestingly, the Alpine AL-314 is a 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 chip designed by Annapurna Labs, a company wholly owned by Amazon (yes, that Amazon).
