    Upgrade path questions

    So I ended up upgrading from my GTX 770 2gb to a Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 4gb Now I cant wait until the division comes out! I will say, though, the new video card definitely improved The Witcher III with everything on ultra plus gameworks stuff!

    Upgrade path questions

    I am playing The Division beta and I'm looking to upgrade so I can play this game on Ultra settings and a reasonable FPS. Current benchmarks show AMD's are beating the nVidia's by up to 20FPS in some settings (see ) My current rig: CPU: Core i5 2550K (Sandy Bridge) at 4.5Ghz Mem:8Gb Corsair vengeance @ 1648Mhz GPU: nVidia GTX770 2gb I run everything fine with High settings and shadows down to Low/Mid my FPS maintains around 50ish out of combat and 30ish in combat My question is should I spring for a GTX970/980 or should I consider a system rebuild to avoid bottlenecks? I'm not really wanting to do a full system build again so I'm leaning to just getting a new GPU, but what are your guys' thoughts? I was also thinking of just getting another GTX770 and doing SLI because doesn't DX12 and Windows 10 to combine the video memory to 4gb then rather than sharing the 2gb from one card? Thanks for any input!

    [FS] BitFenix Prodigy - M Case [SOLD]

    I just won this case in the 2014 Christmas contest and unfortunately I do not have a microATX mobo to fit it so if anyone wants it I will sell it for $60 and then you can just pick your color when Bosco messages me to send it. http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/chassis/prodigy-m Moderators please let me know if this is OK for me to do. If not please delete this post and I will sell it after I recieve it. Just wanted to give a buyer a chance to pick the color.

    Question about Headphones

    So I just got a pair of Razer Kraken Pro 7.1 Chroma headphones. It is a USB connection from the pair to my PC. Here's the question: Because they don't physically connect to my sound card are my headphones using my sound card? Are they Using their own built in sound card? Or somehow using my mobo audio even though I don't have the drivers installed? Thanks

    Question about Headphones

    Ghey! I was hoping there was some sort of software emulation that would allow it. Oh well! Thanks

    GTX 770 Temps

    So I'm sure somewhere buried in these forums there is a similar post , but I'm going to jest be a rebel. When I game for long periods of time my card is topping out at 82C, does this seem right? I heard these cards run hotter but dang my old 5850 topped out at 60c. Lemme know, Thanks!

    GTX 770 Temps

    What are your guys' thoughts on using some 3rd party app like Afterburner or EVGA to regulate the temps a bit better by ramping up the fan speed?

    [WTS] Entire PC rig

    Since negotiating is not a part of selling here my bottom dollar is going to be 600 bucks +shipping. Remember what your getting: Entire PC with case, 23" LCD display, razed keyboard, & brand new razor mouse. The only thing that does not come with is is the SSD in the pic and no copy of windows. You will have to load your own on the 500gb HDD that does come with it.

    [WTS] Entire PC rig

    ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN 3 Motherboard - 120.00 Intel Core i5 2550k 3.4Ghz - 3.8Ghz - 200.00 8Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz - 50.00 AMD HD 5850 1Gb video card with aftermarket cooler - 100.00 Antec 900W "High Current" gaming PSU - 100.00 Creative eXtreme gamer X-Fi sound card - 40.00 500Gb Seagate Barracuda HDD - 40.00 Corsair H80 CPU liquid cooler - 65.00 So total price looks to be 715.00 without the case and disk drive but if you decide you want the entire rig I will knock the price down to 650.00 +shipping. If the system gets parted out then the numbers stand pretty firm negotiating can be made via PM. Please no thread flaming for my prices I have started at. The reason I am selling the rig is because I'm going back to school and I need to get a laptop; which I am buying a macbook pro from my friend he never used.
