    ASUS Service Rep Around?

    I'm going to try Monday/Tuesday to see if I can get an elevated CS representative, the whole ordeal and phone call nonsense when the card smoked happened on the weekend - same with the CID department yesterday. I honestly at this point don't even want another 760, I'd take a $100 credit and go...

    ASUS Service Rep Around?

    Bought a GTX 760 in September of '13 and had it smoke itself by October of '13 due to infant mortality of a power delivery component on the board (couldn't tell if it was a MOSFET, VRM, or power cap). The 3 year rapid replacement warranty is awesome and I get a new one sent out to me promptly. I...

    Seasonic Snow Silent 750W PSU LUCKY DRAW!

    Our control boards for power range instrumentation and rod step control use Seasonic industrial PSUs and DC-DC boards - if they're good enough for a nuke plant they're more than good enough for me. The only PSU that has failed in 10 years (past lifespan and replacement frequency anyway) wasn't a...

    980 Ti

    No, I did not notice the ampersand because it doesn't exist in that post of yours.

    Samsung Galaxy S6

    That 40 minute video was holy wtf levels of good. 14% battery was used during that whole video which I would say averaged the upper end of moderate usage with low periods of heavy use - extrapolate that to a full charge and drain and it's just shy of 5 hours of moderate to (sparingly) heavy use...

    Best Dual Monitor Stand for 2 x 34" Ultra Wides?

    $171 (shipping included) to the US is a pretty good deal for that triple stand w/ telescoping wings. I got mine on an Amazon sale for like $190...it was also when the MSRP on those was over $300 and most places didn't have it cheaper than $250-275. They've since come down but pennies saved are...

    Best Dual Monitor Stand for 2 x 34" Ultra Wides?

    Fixed. Why can't Dropbox ever play nice - I hate uploading to private albums on Facebook and then linking from there.

    Best Dual Monitor Stand for 2 x 34" Ultra Wides?

    Several actually. <-- Back <-- Back more recent picture (ignore all the empty alcohol bottles - haven't done spring cleaning yet) <-- Front <-- Front more recent picture (same thing with the empty alcohol bottles) The more recent pictures were taken after I had to re-setup everything...

    Best Dual Monitor Stand for 2 x 34" Ultra Wides?

    ^ This is actually what I'm using for my dual 34" LG ultrawides. Exact monitor stand here on Amazon. Another option is to get this stand since you don't really need the telescoping wings (though your monitors will have to angle in slightly).

    How do you use 1440p?

    Dual 34" 3440x1440 monitors here, upgraded from dual 23" 1920x1080. Letterboxed the monitors turn into a centered 27" 2560x1440 picture. I sit about 3.5 feet away from them (they're angled to fit on the desk so some parts are closer to 3 feet others closer to 4 feet but generally I spin the...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    Holy image sizes Batman, resize or throw a spoiler tag on that. Something is definitely too big when I need to scroll to see stuff on my monitors.

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    If the VRAM isn't being efficiently used to actually improve the experience or visual fidelity of the game I'd rather have it sit there unused than trying to seek out every last MB the card says it has and use it poorly. The other part of that is the coding and engine optimizations that exist in...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    That's incorrect by the very definition of optimize - make the best or most effective use of (a situation, opportunity, or resource). At best you could call the bold/unlined/italicized statement inefficient - but certainly not optimized. There is nothing effective about using 4GB of VRAM to...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    Actually it kind of does matter - nobody expects a pair of $325 graphics cards to drive 18.66 million pixels with that level of detail. Sure, it proves the point shit hits the fan when the VRAM is pushed above its limitation but tell me.....what fucking card doesn't shit the bed when its VRAM is...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    The game choosing to use what's available is directly related to the quality of programming that went into developing the graphical engine. So yes, I can blame the game for using what's available despite not needing to. I don't see half of my Steam library of 180 some odd games maxing out my...
