    NVIDIA Powers World’s Largest Ultra-HD 4K Screen

    I was thinking the same thing.. except w/ the smaller (<30"), more affordable 4k's3840x2160. Granted that's only 8.29 megapixels vs. the 9.05 from the one linked it's not that much different than what are on some people have on their desks. Especially considering it isn't too hard to make a...

    Nintendo Continues To Blame Wii U For Its Financial Woes

    So about the original topic... I am mostly a PC Gamer now although I do have a Wii I play from time to time. My son is in the same boat, but also has a DS and a few other vintage systems. Between my brother and I, we pretty much had every major system since Atari at one point in time so...

    Blizzard Releases Classic Games for Free

    This isn't the Rock N Roll racing you're looking for.... I saw this news and immediately went for it. Unfortunately my hopes were crushed immediately when the starting track appeared... and some generic midi was playing. Not the Paranoid title track. ....Waves Hand.... So I went to...

    Diablo III Patch 2.0.1 Goes Live As Reaper of Souls Approaches

    This patch is a game-changer for me. I was one of those people that dropped D3, because the loot system was not what I enjoyed. I didn't find it fun to grind for useless items, where the only goal was to make gold off of the junk so you could finally buy something off of the AH just so you...

    Sound crackling in crossfire with vsync on

    I have noticed this too on 2 Asus DCU 290X's on an Asus P8Z77 series motherboard (I used Tomb Raider menus as the check). I'm curious if anyone doesn't have the issue. VSync On = Issue, Off = No Issue. From what I seen around the web, it seems limited to the 290 & 290x. I'm figuring it's...

    Can 1600W Rosewill PSU handle 6 x r9 290 cards?

    I did it a long time ago to run a system w/ a 6-Drive Raid 5 array... back when power supplies were small by todays standards. I ran the primary PSU like normal. And I connected the second PSU's molex's to the devices I wanted to power. I made an 'adapter' to plug into the motherboard end of...

    290/290x availability thread

    Kind of all over the board for availability... although I've been the recipient of good news recently. For example I recently saw an item out-of-stock (no way to order), go from weeks, to months, then suddenly available all within 1-week. But then that was worded as Availability, not the Ship...

    Is it possible to find GPU serial number by having the Item UPC number?

    No. The UPC number is an identifier for the product, not a specific card. However, you may still have some options... If you still have the box, they sometimes put the serial number w/ barcode directly on the box as well. Some receipts will also contain the serial number data as well. If...

    I hope Mantle fails miserably.

    @ OP... As long as you also want PhysX, Cuda, & G-Sync to fail miserably as well, then you might be able to validate this thread a little bit. If not... your motives are easily questionable.
