    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Yes and in almost every configuration, Windows 8.1 had HUGE benefits. What are you exactly trying to say?

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    They don't say, unfortunately. But, it's pretty clear pattern. Look at the average FPS on that review to gauge it a bit better what the overall performance is. But, unequivocally, Windows 8.1 has significant benefits.

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Well, I got bored and compiled the data from Hardware Pal's similar review, seen here. I appreciate Hard|OCP's testing, but they missed a big point by leaving out the CPU. If you play on any settings that really stress out your CPU, Windows 8.1 has ENORMOUS benefits for Battlefield 4...

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Regarding Kepler and DX11.1, NVIDIA had this to say: So, it has DX11.1 for basically any purpose Hard|OCP is concerned about--I think. --- So, I'm curious why you guys chose a pure GPU test....A Frostbite 3 developer stated this on Reddit: So, it also has CPU benefits. Another site...

    Battlefield 4 Video Card Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    For those who want to whet their appetite on the Win 7 vs Win 8.1 discussion: http://www.hardwarepal.com/battlefield-4-benchmark-mp-cpu-gpu-w7-vs-w8-1/ Windows 8.1 seems to have big benefits.

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    Oh, right! I remember those cards. You plugged them into a PCI-E slot and they had a couple DDR slots for RAM. With DDR3 prices this low, you'd think that would be moving somewhere. I think it was RAM density that slowed them down, though. You only get 4 DDR slots on a card; filling that with...

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    @PNTL and Magnus "This question isn't to buy parts or anything (haha); this is just a general question on the state of technology..." @Forceman Well, I thought the same thing. I looked up some RAM disks, however, and they were on-par or only slightly faster than SSDs. But, your point is...

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    It used to be the hard drive, but with the advent of SSDs, what is now the slowest part of the computer? I mean, for regular computing (what 95% of the world does with its computers: cue in Office, Firefox, watching a movie), what's holding them back? Why are instant-on computers still far...

    PowerColor PCS+ HD4890 1GB @ [H]

    I add another. :) I mean, three out of the five games you tested were playable at 2560x1600; Crysis and Far Cry 2 the only exceptions. And even then FC2 was at 1920x1200 with 4XAA and the highest in-game settings.

    PowerColor PCS+ HD4890 1GB @ [H]

    I can see an overvolt being likely; even with its new cooler, the temperatures were within a few degrees from the stock cooler. It's good that it's quiet, though. Typo Fixt - Kyle Not a bad card. I wish you guys might throw in a GTX 285 in there. I've had conflicting information whether the...

    NVIDIA EDID fix for "bugged" Westinghouse LVM-37w3se

    Yeah, these latest drivers have been causing monitor problems for others, as well. AFAIK, no fixes have been found. :( ~Ibrahim~

    Why Do You Need More Than 6GB of Memory?

    I thought people bought lower CAS RAM because it would overclock higher without outrageous (CAS10+) timings..

    Why Do You Need More Than 6GB of Memory?

    $150 is so little for 12GB of DDR3. I remember my friend buying the Corsair Dominator's 2GB 1066MHz kit for about $450 a few years back. ~Ibrahim~

    Why Do You Need More Than 6GB of Memory?

    Yeah....ever since I upgraded from 2GB->4GB, I've found that I can minimize BF2 and actually do something with my computer! :eek: It's nice. Sometimes I regret not getting 8GB, but then I remember that I don't have that much money, lol, seeing as my mobo doesn't like 4 sticks. ~Ibrahim~

    MSI N285GTX SuperPipe OC @ [H]

    I'm pretty sure it is cooler than the back plate model from EVGA. This thing loads at about 53C on 70% fan. 53C. ~Ibrahim~

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    Nah, if it's a rule, I'll abide by it. Now, I'm not trying to cause an issue, but my rules list stops at 23. This is what I'm looking at. Wait, wait, never mind. It has its own section; in the actual forums. This list above needs to be updated! I'll change it now; I don't care that much. :)

    I'm sorry...didn't think it was that big of an issue. Since there isn't a system specifications section, I put them in the signature area and sign with my name on each post. If you really do mind, I can insert my name in my signature, as well. I mean, it is the same information, but just above...

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    Yeah...it kind of blows. I have to use the 32-bit Sidebar to get Pandora and a few other Flash stuff working. Yeah. Sorry, didn't mean it to sound so bluntly: "Not true". That actually sounds a bit like a d-bag sort of thing when I read it now. Unusually, I get system updates a bit earlier...

    Strange new program "Downloads" running on my computer

    Well, technically, that is kind of what sfc /scannow does. It scans all your Windows files and checks for corruption; if it finds any, it replaces it with a known good copy. You could try a "Repair" from the CD, yes... Does it launch in Safe Mode? 'msconfig' it and on the first tab...

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    Ah, right. I think 16489 was the BETA because mine is 18005. I found some Chinese site that had the files, but I didn't really trust it, so I used Universal Theme Patcher which definitely works as I just tested it. :) Good luck! :) ~Ibrahim~

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    @Impulse Yeah, it finally finished. And the thing screwed up my Themes! Ugh...it's OK, though, SP2 patch files have already been released. @nova As in staying awake...usually, it'll only takes 30 minutes....USUALLY....lol ~Ibrahim~

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    Same here, man, fully patched with SP1 and all new updates. Is this because I don't automatically update, MS? I am "download-only"; I like to know what I'm downloading. But, MS strikes back! Ridiculous...I'm just going to leave it on over the night...I'm not wasting my time waiting for...

    Vista Service Pack 2 Released

    I'm not sure why, Impulse. SP1 includes all previous updates. There are a few prerequisites, but not 30! SO....SP2 is literally taking over 2 hours to install. I thought it was joking when it said it could take "several hours!" Seriously, what the crap, MS? It's only at 58% after 2...

    Oh, will medium work? I actually never tried it. The real setting is to fix it is to set it to low, but since my particular configuration is a bit different than the usual fix, I just went to the opposite of low. Yeah, I've been having some freaky problems with my computer; I have no idea why...

    Need help making "silent" batch file...

    Hi! Long story short: the Favorites folder in Vista (used by IE) has an integrity level of low when moved to a different hard drive. You can fix it by going to the command prompt and typing this: icacls E:\Ibrahim\Favorites /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)high However, I seem to "lose" this...
