    VR System Check - 1070 + i7 4790k + 16gb DDR3

    Thanks a lot. I have a crappy 670 that won't work for VR, but no CPU. I was going to pick that up first and then save up for the GPU. I'm really loving the Odyssey btw.

    VR System Check - 1070 + i7 4790k + 16gb DDR3

    Good morning all. I'm looking to finish out a system that I have 1/2 built for VR. I currently own a Samsung Odyssey WMR system. I was curious if the finished build would hold up to something like Skyrim VR. Here's what I have: MSI Gaming 7 1150 16 GB DDR3 2000mhz Here's what I'm thinking...

    Will I need SLI? (GTX 670)

    Personal experience here. I bought 2 Gigabyte 670s and play at both 1920x and 5760x. At 1920x I can play (almost) everything maxed out.Been playing a lot of Arma 2 and the game goes between 35 FPS and 100 FPS. Game is rough on any system, but looks great. (Also have i7 930 running at...

    Best high performance card setup for 2-3 month stopgap?

    I started playing Rift for the first time this past week. (Rift Lite) I need to check the settings, but at 1920x1080 I haven't noticed a slow down. I'll fire up Fraps tonight to check FPS. I'll let you know when I get home. Could be driver improvements and differences as well. I've been...

    Best high performance card setup for 2-3 month stopgap?

    I unloaded my 2 6950s thinking that I would pick up a 7970. That hasn't happened yet. I've been surviving on a GTX 460 1GB for the past week or two and it has been managable. I could be evil and pull the other one out of my wife's computer, but I don't think it would be worth the hassle...

    Single GTX580 vs 6970 crossfire

    SWTOR info - MSI Afterburner shows 0% usage of 2nd card in my 6790 Xfire setup. Don't expect improved framerates over one card. Hopefully they will patch the support in. Hopefully they will patch a LOT of things in.

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    Count me as someone who experiences tearing. =( I have 2x 6950s flashed to 6970s and have very noticeable tearing that moves slowly from top to bottom of screen. This happens when I am in both Fullscreen or Windowed mode in BFBC2 and WOW. I have enabled V-Sync and Triple buffering, but it...

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    I'll get definitive numbers tonight to make sure. FRAPS the way to go for framerates? I play BFBC2 and WoW at the moment. I do have Just Cause 2 and Metro 2033 installed and can attempt to pull numbers from that as well if you all want. Thanks for the information all. I may try portrait...

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    When you're playing on 3x 30 monitors Portrait, what resolution are you running? I'm currently running 2x 6950's (unlocked) at 5760x1080 landscape on 27" monitors and it doesn't seem like I can turn on all the bells and whistles on games like WOW or BFBC2 etc. Does portrait provide a lower...
