    What's up with the video card prices?

    Thanks to all those who replied. I was clearly delusional. What you all say makes a lot of sense.

    What's up with the video card prices?

    Its a "buyers market right now". This means if you want to sell, it is you who is desperate, you are the one who is forced to lower your prices to stay afloat. The buyer can afford to wait for a better deal. Many people are out of work. Covid-19 is raging. In general the standard of living in...

    Same performance at different res. How can this be?

    Is there some sort of software which shows that the CPU is not able to keep up with the game? Clearly Afterburner is not sufficient since it only shows info insufficient to know if something is CPU bound.

    Same performance at different res. How can this be?

    Sorry, I made a mistake. The CPU is X3470. The CPU usage in COH never goes above 35% according to Afterburner.

    Same performance at different res. How can this be?

    I am testing Company of Heroes 2 @ 720p(integer scaling) and 1440p. My setup is an X5470(about on par with i5-2400) and GTX 1650(low profile) 8GB RAM. I used integer scaling @ 720p because the 1650 is not a 1440p card at all. But performance sucked. 24fps minimum and about 40fps average. Then...

    CPU usage VS Higher Resolutions

    Right now, its a 2GB 750Ti, but I have an RX 580 4GB coming in the mail. I am just curious, if video cards were the same, can I get the same FPS with that X5450 @ 720p as I would have had with say... a i5-4440@1080p ?

    Sold it recently. No more Ryzen.

    CPU usage VS Higher Resolutions

    Well, in my case it's my Xeon X5450. It's getting real long in the tooth, but I have a huge library of games to play so I'm not worried about anything that it cannot handle.

    CPU usage VS Higher Resolutions

    If I have a crappy slow CPU, is it more likely to have games running at a good FPS rates at very low resolution as opposed to high resolutions? Am I more likely to have say... 60fps @ 720p as opposed to 1080p? That's assuming the video card can handle off course.

    Is VR even worth it?

    My B-Day is coming up and I want to make myself a present. Whatever in $500-700 range should be ok, IF it's actually worth it. I did a quick Google search, and it doesn't look like theres very many "good" VR games out there.. i'm talking truly AAA titles like Fallout 4 or Resident Evil 7. I...

    AMD upgrade suggestions from an RX 570?

    Currently, I am running a dual RX 570 Crossfire. For games that don't support crossfire or just require a beefier card, I am OK with playing at 1080p, and I'm not even in any hurry to go higher. However, I do have a 1440p monitor also, and should an amazing deal come up for a Vega 64 or a 5700XT...

    144Hz Monitors pointless/useless?

    Your comparison is wrong. And no one is trolling anyone. It's not the street that's limited, it's the engine. But if so, no point in those tires.

    144Hz Monitors pointless/useless?

    Acer XF270HU Cbmiiprzx 27 This is a Freesync monitor, but FreeSync does work with nVidia now, and I do have it enabled.

    144Hz Monitors pointless/useless?

    Good idea. I have to try that. However, I do have a newer Corsair mouse. The one that looks like a cybernetic spaceship. It's one of the better ones. I concur. Certainly my fault for giving in to the hype. That 67 fps they are getting is with some options OFF. I am playing with those options...
