Merry Christmas TPUer's !
Got another weapon review up. Was recording footage for another AUG review since it got a change for the Aftermath patch, then some of the Youtube Pubstars joined the game I was in. Went back through the games footage and had enough footage from just that game, so made a review from just that match.
Got me there, was wondering where the text was, thought it was tricky white text, tried to highlight it, then realized it was centered, thought it was just part of your sig, lol.
Getting a new GPU with an eye towards going 1440P in the next couple months and can spend around $300 for the card. With the new 12.11 improvements plus overclocking ability, most notably in BF3, I am leaning towards a nice dual-fan XFX 7950 for $290 AR. But I can also get a PNY GTX 670 for like $280 AR now...
Thats what I assumed too until I started reading more yesterday with an emphasis on "7950 vs 670 at 2560x1440". Most told folks asking this question to go with a 7950 I was somewhat surprised to see.
You have to get the 4gb version of the 670 at that rez. With a 670 FTW you get better then 680 performance for 100 bucks less and only 20 bucks more then a normal 2gb version. I got nothing against the 7950.....just hate AMD drivers and the random "break this, fix that" crap they always seem to pull.
Don't listen to others, listen to W1zzard:
The latest 310.70 driver brings another 3-4% to the table.
Good point re. memory as I considered that too but did not mention in my post; though the 4GBs really are out of my budget at this time...I also need to drop $300 on the display, of course. That is the other "pro" towards the 7950 though-another gig of memory.
Maybe I have to sacrifice some eye candy, AA etc for some time and/or until newer cards come out and I can afford something better. At least in BF3.
Well if I would of had just a little bit of patience I could of waited for the 4 GB version
for what I paid for my 2gb card. Oh well, doesn't seem to need more memory as of yet.
1080p is as high as I go on Rez though. You gonna SLI yours MM ?
I would probably go lower end MGPU again maybe with 7850s but am mini-itx now. Though, yah, 1440P is gonna need more than 2GB in many scenarios anyway.
They sure cram a lot into those MB's. So basically your GPU
will be 1/3 of the size of your Board ? Those must be for
those little cube cases ?
Yeah a full-sized GPU does look pretty funny installed on these things. There are various types of cases such as the Prodigy but yeah many are small HTPC-like cubes. Glad I have the low profile Samsung RAM too.
lovin BF3 on ultra settings on my new, shiny 7870
I am so tired of little pussy admins who ban you just for doing well on a server, I have been banned from 4 servers in the past 16 hours for doing well on them though I hardly consider 23-17 ban-worthy. EA needs to have stricter rules for admins with their own servers......
I have never really experienced any direct admin "abuse"; I don't think it's particularly rampant. Apparently a lot worse on console too (go figure).
Do you type a lot when you play? I rarely get kicked for doing well. Only person I know who does sometimes is Marineborn, and thats because when he dies as he waits to respawn he just talks as much shit as he can. Which is entertaining, but yeah gets him kicked now and then. Sometimes the shit he says is true, but most of the time not
I never have a problem when I play bf3 for PC but lately I have been playing it on PS3 with brother and have been getting kicked left and right for no reason, even on servers with no rules. It's annoying and even though its PS3 this is still the BF3 Clubhouse so i felt like venting. We don't even use PS3 headsets we just Skype which makes it even more confusing why I would be kicked :shadedshu
Oh. Yeah I have heard a lot of bitching about console admins on the subreddit. Don't mean to stereotype/generalize but I guess it stands to reason. Dumb, immature people with God complexes (in many cases teenagers) are simply more likely to play on a console and it shows.
Whatchu talking about, I am god, even though the wife gave me the flu and we both have the shits and body aches. Wrig do you you like open world FPS ? Far Cry 3 is fucking incredible. I can't pull myself away.
I talk a lot if crap but only been kicked for tks on hc servers... And been called a hacker
Man I had some fun last night. Equipped the Spas-12 with Flechettes and a Laser. So funny to one shot people that are like 40 ft from you without using slugs. Even killed some wounded players almost half way across the map (Noshar TDM of course). Bet they were so confused.
My fav TDM map. I played a couple rounds last night on it with the M1014. First round with a wireless mouse and got my ass handed to me, then wired mouse I did better. There are some really good players who play that map. Don't miss Orhan coming in and stabbing me a dozen times though.
Yeah its overall I'd say the best map for TDM. Orhan hasn't ever really tried bothering me on that map. I remember one day he spawned in, but since it's so hectic, and all he's trying to do is knife me he went like 3/20 then probably rage quit. He jumped in one other time and parachuted off the crane right on top of me and knifed me. I managed to face knife him 3 more times that round then he left. It's just to clustered to try for one person, at least on 32 player servers.
And speaking of Noshar TDM. Ufgy talked me into using the A-91 again. This use to be my favorite weapon like a year ago, but I haven't used it since. But guess I'm still use to it.
The thing just destroys, normally I noice using different kits, having the medbox is so nice, but it wasn't bothering me at all while using the A-91.
