    HELP. Horrible framerate drops

    XMP may have solved the issue. For some reason I kept turing it on and it would not stick. It finally did. I'm running through some COD and BL3 today will let you know results. And yes the new monitor is next on the list, lol right after a new Macbook for my son's freshman year at college and...

    HELP. Horrible framerate drops

    So I recently upgraded from 4770k to a Ryzen 3600 and was running a 1070. Was having horrible framerate drops like from 100 to 15 every so often in BL3 and COD MW. All drivers were updated and a fresh install of Windows. I then upgraded the 1070 to 5700 XT and I'm still getting the same issues...

    Sizing Window AC for room

    Just replaced a 15K BTU unit that was probably 12 yo or more with a 12k Friedrich that i got through Greentoe. SO far its only been in about an hour but its quieter and so far providing the same level of cooling. We have an open 480 Sq/Ft living room in our apt with multiple windows and a few...

    Display Port or hdmi to DVI-d

    Back again. So I found a GPU that has 2x HDMI 2.0b outputs. Is this still the same issue if wanting to run 1440P @60hz to DVI-d. Trying to find some definitive answers and the google searches are all a mess of conflicting information.

    Display Port or hdmi to DVI-d

    Yeah the xstar is 2560x1440 60hz so it looks like gpu with 2 hdmi ports or a $50 adapter or a new monitor. Thanks all.

    Display Port or hdmi to DVI-d

    Quick question. Looking to upgrade my 1070 to either a 2060 super or 5700xt. I see most of them come with 1 HDMI and 3 or 4 DP. My issue is my two monitors. Main is a 27" Xstar with DVI only and the 2nd is an old ASUS 27" 1920 x1200 with HDMI and DVI. I think i'm safe with a DP to DVI adapter...

    The Division 2

    Even season pass holders get the message to jump through the hoops but if you click on it at the gunsmith it does unlock and then just lists all the hoops to get the extra stuff. But then if you've actually tried it it could be bugged. I thought mine was at first.

    Just leveled my alt to 30, loaded up gear from my main and now running through WT's like a hot knife thru butter :) Had two guys join my squad during one of the missions. I started Tidal Basin and they were nowhere to be seen so as a lark I continued on my own and Solo cleared it in like 10 min...
