    1080 SLI vs Titan X Pascal

    Dude. I'm running a 770gtx SLI and its a good system for my usage. I play at 1080p and this setup has lasted me a couple of years. Not as long as I'd have liked to be perfectly honest. I built this system with a 5 year plan and after watching trends at the time SLI was taking off. But as soon as...

    Why You Will Never See Half-Life 3

    This doesn't make sense to me. Eli was basically a supporting character that ended up having a major role in the second game and the episodes. But to me the Half Life games were always about the G-man and what about this for a theory (albeit similar to existing theories). Gordon Freeman is the...

    Windows 10 Build 14385 Now Available

    I just want them to fix the whole 'screen rotation locked' bullshit on tablets. It annoys me so much. I'd assume it was a driver issue if it didn't happen 90% of the time. But I have 2 tablets with different accelerometers and have the same issue with each. So annoying.

    SOMA - SciFi Horror

    It's a really good game. I've picked it up and although I'm only about 3 hours in I'm really enjoying it. But then I really enjoy games like this Amnesia was amazing and Alien: Isolation was simply insane. SOMA is just as good as those in my opinion. This video really sold it to me...

    DiRT Rally

    A pal of mine recommended this to me and I have to say its incredible. I've not had a game feel so 'real' to me. The physics are right on the mark. However as a fan of the dirt series I was massively shocked as to how radically different the handling actually is. I always thought Dirt 3 was more...

    RROD on my 360 Elite :(

    A lot of people forget about are the gpu's memory. They are just as susceptible to heat as the cpu and gpu. But it is such an easy fix.Check YouTube for the penny trick. I have a core system from 2006 which rrod'd back in 09 after a particularly long session on Guitar Hero. Being out of...

    4770K 90C with H100i @ stock speeds?

    I have the H90 and had the same issue at stock with my new build. I was running 88c at stock and couldnt understand why. After a couple of remounts I realised that I had managed to put the pump power cable (3 pin) across the wrong pins on the motherboard header (4 pin). Moved it over one pin and...

    Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H LGA 1150 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    After some testing I decided to skip the 460 and keep my sound card. It just sounds better to me than the mobo solution. Or at least sounds different. So I'm keeping the 770's in SLI. The framerate difference is minimal anyway. Like 2-5fps loss which varies between runs anyway (using arkham city...

    Thief Video Card Performance Preview @ [H]

    I still have my old Diamond Aureal Vortex 2 somewhere. A3D is (imho) FAR superior to anything we have nowadays. I loved the realistic occlusion effects and material based reverb and the positional audio was spot on. I regret having to move to EAX and creative cards until I got a little closer...

    Thief Reboot (coming 2014)

    I can't really see what is so bad with this game. I'm a rabid fan of the Thief series and while I didn't like the previews of this new game that much it was still an interesting game to me. So when I saw a pre-order deal for £15 I took it. Watched the totalbiscuit review and it actually looks...

    What card to get when running 780s?

    I'll run a few tests when my parts arrive next week. It just seems a waste having the 460 sitting in a box. I'll run a few benches with and without and see if its worth it :)

    What card to get when running 780s?

    Serious question. But what about a dual 770 with a 460 for physx? pointless or worth it? (my new build is 2x 770 sli and have my old 460 for physx if need be)

    Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H LGA 1150 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Planning on buying this board for a new build. I want to have 2x 770s in SLI and use my old 460 for physx in the 3rd pciex slot. I also have a Xonar D2X sound card which is pciex1. Will having the 460 in the last slot disable ALL the other pciex1 slots? I'm rather fond of the xonar and would...

    Grand Theft Auto On Google Glass

    Wait so this guy couldn't make the app for GTA V,so tried GTA IV and failed but managed to get GTA 3 working? Sounds like how I pick up women in a bar I got to a bar and try my luck with the hot young girl and fail. So I move to the slightly older woman, she's been about a bit and still looks...

    Official Deus Ex: Human Revolution thread

    I am freaking loving this game. However i have a major bugbear that really grips my shit. I've been using the tranq rifle (assumed the stun gun was a stun gun, not a tranq dart gun. Bit annoyed at that) and it really pisses me off that a massive dart full of sedatives can be conquered by walking...
