In Topic: Do i really need to upgrade my gpu?

10 February 2017 - 05:13 AM

In the order you asked:


A) Maybe

B) Yes

C) No


I owned two 780's a couple years ago (first just one, then a second for SLI), and I was fairly exasperated with how quickly they became obsolete from a high-performance perspective. For me, the 3GB VRAM was absolutely crippling as soon as a game started to exceed that. If you don't care about textures, then you can probably get away with the 780. I have a Strix 1070 now, though, and I'm very happy with it. You have a 4K TV, if you have the itch to upgrade, you may as well get a new GPU and get the most out of your setup. Your i5 is perfectly sufficient for powering a 1070, even a 1080, even SLI of both. 

In Topic: Mouse get a little bit slower during video playback

My experience tells me I'm more inclined to think it would be a software issue that would cause this. Aside from Youtube, what programs are you using to play media, and from what sources? 


A few catch-all suggestions are: 

1) Make sure you have the latest nVidia drivers for your video card. Go to nvidia.com to download the latest drivers.

2) For media files on your PC, try a media player like VLC or Media Player Classic.

3) What browser are you using for Youtube? I would recommend Chrome if you aren't using it already, but Firefox and Opera are also solid choices!


Good luck!

In Topic: Ashes of the Singularity 1.0 Releases March 31

I'm definitely looking forward to picking this up once it releases. I've been in the mood for a good RTS game, and the fact it reminds me a lot of Supreme Commander is not a bad thing. 


I'm also excited to pick up my first DX12 game and see if going to AMD was worth the switch. 

In Topic: Best Cinebench Score EVER

Goodness, this brings back memories from when I was doing computer support. I have painful memories of working with these machines, they were slower than molasses. 


But really, though, 19? That is just amazingly awful!  :wallbash:

In Topic: Just picked up a Surface Pro; what does everyone here think of the Surface line?

11 March 2016 - 05:31 AM

surface 3 is AMAZING

anything lower is garbage though

not because of the hardware

if you got on old one cheap, it's great to use


Can I ask why you feel the earlier models are garbage?
