    Absent 4k at 120Hz+ (or some hardcore surround), it's hard to recommend that the OP keep 1080TI SLI. Not that it doesn't work, because it absolutely does, or because game developers aren't supporting it as it's being patched into all mainstream...

    I fully agree that the FOV and resolution needs aren't quite there yet with Gen 1 VR for the hardcore SIM racing crowd. Looking forward to Gen 2 hardware in a couple years, and I bet VR will close that gap and become a viable alternative for...

    Just stop. You're spewing random statements with no cohesive point to your argument anymore. Of course there aren't that many VR sets out there yet - it's only been out for a couple of years now since gen 1 hit and VR tech is still maturing....

  5. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Any point to SLi anymore?.

    Your argument is non sequitur. I'll grant you there are some games that use and support SLI, but that list isn't all that long and by far most games do not. I also predict that multi-monitor setups *for gaming* are starting to go the way of the...

    Never said that everyone did. Just an observation that If you can afford triple monitors and two 1080Ti's, then you can easily afford a ~$400 VR setup. Most gamers also don't have SLI with triple monitor setups. Those that do are living in the...

  7. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread AMD Wraith Prism Stock Cooler Eye Candy.

    Agreed. Custom loop with 840mm of rad here, all of it configured push/pull using Gentle Typhons on fan controllers. A HSF won’t touch that when it comes to keeping things cool, nor keeping a heavily OCed Titan XP happy... and it runs a hell of...

  8. Supercharged_Z06 liked ccityinstaller's post in the thread AMD Wraith Prism Stock Cooler Eye Candy.

    If you can't best a HSF with 720mm of rad, then you are doing something wrong. Very very wrong. I will never go back to a traditional HSF combo as long as WC is an option. aawesomene performance aside, the silence is well worth it alone. Also...

  9. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Any point to SLi anymore?.

    VR has completely eliminated the need for more than one monitor when it comes to gaming (at least for me). No multi-monitor setup can compete with the full gaming immersion VR brings with it. Now for productivity apps/coding/etc. I can still see...

  10. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Any point to SLi anymore?.

    You say you primarily game in VR and you're smart enough to realize that the promise of SLI for VR was a completely still-born thing. Sell one while you can still get a pretty penny for it. Then sit tight and wait for the 1180Ti to drop either...

    The use of LED lighting within a PC is sort of the equivalent of slapping performance stickers on a car. Does absolutely nothing for performance and it reaches a point that once past, turns into this exuberant orgasm of tackiness.

  12. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Anyone excited about nV's cloud GPU stuff.

    I've always chased the highest resolutions possible when gaming - currently using a 32" 4K gsync monitor. Cloud GPU makes zero sense for those that game at high resolutions... the latency alone completely kills it, even if you do have a massive...

    Not impressed at all. Think it's a waste of time, money and equipment.

  14. Supercharged_Z06 liked Decibel's post in the thread Vive 2 is dropping soon, Where the H is Oculus 2 or whatever?.

    That is incorrect. There is no Vive 2, but there is the Vive Pro. Which is $800 without controllers or tracking stations, so like $1200 to get everything you need. Slightly higher resolution, most of the reviews have been decidedly "meh." If you...
