    Running 2 graphics cards?

    Thanks. You were right. Found a Zen3 Ryzen5 and man its made a huge difference. In some games I'm getting +80 fps with the same graphics card. Now I can play a stream full quality and game with no impact to my fps. This thing is sweet! Finally seeing what this 3070 can really do.

    Running 2 graphics cards?

    Okay. Figured it all out. Thanks for all the suggestions. I was missing the Intel HD 4600 drivers, once installed everything worked as it should and I could assign chrome graphic processing to the CPU instead of GPU for the 2nd monitor. Unfortunately watching a 1080p60 twitch stream alone on...

    Running 2 graphics cards?

    I'm using Display Port for both monitors I will look into finding the HW acceleration setting and give that a shot. Its a Asus XG279Q 1440P/170hz and an Asus VG248QE 1080P/144hz Its just odd because when I select detect monitor in windows display settings it doesn't find it, no matter if I use...

    Running 2 graphics cards?

    No luck. I enabled iGPU and multimonitor settings in bios but windows would never detect my second monitor. I ended up putting in the gtx970 and had my second monitor connected to it. Dual monitor worked fine, but watching a 1080p60 stream it still had the 3070 perform all the video decoding...

    Running 2 graphics cards?

    My PC is old running a i7-4790k on a Asus Z97-A board with 20gb of ram. I been running a RTX 3070 and dual monitor setup for about a month and noticed when I watch streams on my second monitor while gaming it definitely sacrifices some frames. I've noticed with a twitch stream alone has the 3070...

    Destiny 2

    I put in over 800hrs on D1. It's the space themed fpsrpg I always wanted. Very hyped to get it on PC because D1 is the only game I played on my PS4. I was trying to get in the PC beta but im not waiting til August... Just preinstalled on PlayStation. Still gonna buy the released game for PC though.

    I don't know what chargers you used, but I used my old Samsung phone charger to charge my ps4 controller regularly. Its the one with the qualcomm 2.0 quick charge ability. The charger has 2 modes regular charge (5v @ 2A) and quick charge when connected to a quick charge capable device(9.0v @...

    Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (2017)

    And I almost bought this game with the 60% off sale they were running on Origin over the weekend. Ill wait to see if BattleFront 2 is an improvement on gameplay. With the 4 hour trial I got, it was getting a bit repetitive and boring. Graphically its one of the best games I've seen though.

    You can now stream PlayStation 4 games to your Windows PC or Mac

    Just tried it out. Was impressed with the responsiveness. I couldn't really tell of any input lag. Going to do some long distance experimenting with my laptop.

    Most Insane amount of gaming power in 1 build. $30,000

    I was more impressed on the build then the actual practicality.. 8 water cooled GPU's & 256GB on a single board? I never seen anything even close to that before. 2 pumps, 2 big ass Radiators. I'm curious to know the temps when fully loaded, but he did say there were some errors reading...

    DiRT Rally

    This game is brutallllll. I literally have sweat on my forehead every time I play. Its very stressful, intense and I love it. Drop a wheel in a ditch or come in too fast and its over. Other road racing games I feel satisfied to finish at top of the pack. This one I feel so good just to finish...
