    SGSSAA = the highest quality AA ?

    Sorry for the necro, but this is a top thread on the subject of SGSSAA which I've never seen an option for or heard of. Your post reeeeally makes me want to try HSAA, since I have never tried it and you are lauded as an AA expert and recommend it so highly. Unfortunately it seems like they still...

    Decent inexpensive 5.1 system

    Finally got around to testing it, the RCA that I have does indeed pass 4k through no problems. I would not certify it for every video card but works great with my setup, surprisingly.

    Sold (US-TX) GTX 1050 TI OC Mini by Zotac w/ 4GB VRAM

    Oh hai there. Now I feel dumb ... same name and all. Heatware is still a thing? I think I have one feedback from years ago. I don't know the answer to your question, guess I figured if I was trying to get rid of it quickly at a cheaper cost, then I'd post here. For this card I am trying to get...

    I hit 344H/s today! And with the difficulty of my pool going down over 10x, I am getting more than 5x shares per second now on XMR. :)

    Ebay auctions subforum question

    Is that a 1 post per user type deal? I have a keyboard to sell and not sure if it belongs in it's own post or if it would be better if I add it to the one I already made for the video card.

    Sold (US-TX) GTX 1050 TI OC Mini by Zotac w/ 4GB VRAM

    Nice choice. I relisted the card for $35 less and added more shipping options. Hard forum members can have another $10 off just use the best offer button. https://www.ebay.com/itm/183173214619 Here is the feedback from the last graphics card that I sold here.

    I lowered the price again, still the cheapest 1050ti mini by zotac on eBay.

    Sold (US-TX) GTX 1050 TI OC Mini by Zotac w/ 4GB VRAM

    I don't think the extra VRAM helps with mining, couldn't you get some cash back by selling the 6gb cards and replacing them with 3gb versions? I set the price lower than the other Zotac Mini versions, will update it every so often if the market changes.

    18.4" FF and the keeb still looks cramped... OOF! Lol I guess that is just part of having a laptop, looks nice for video and editing. Gl with sale.

    Which components should I test to help diagnose this laptop video problem? It works w/ hdmi only.

    It was the motherboard as expected. I'm still interested in getting the schematics for it to repair the old one. I have only seen it on one site and it is $11.

    PCM vs RAW when using an optical cable

    I only use DD. I still don't understand why RAW sounds better when it's supposedly the same quality. I would never use PCM if all my content came with adjustable audio delay/sync settings. I have it hooked up to a fire tv atm. Kodi is the only app that has this implemented, when viewing regular...

    PCM vs RAW when using an optical cable

    My receiver does not have hdmi in only optical. I have read a lot of articles about this and most mention that PCM can only do 2 channels over optical, but it is confusing because I seem to actually be getting surround sound. My TV has PCM or RAW options. On RAW setting the range feels more...

    Selling my 750Ti

    Yeah I was very surprised at how it can share so much and still get 30fps on 4k. I think you might actually get it under 2gb with low textures but I always prioritize that as a personal preference. The card sold for $124 BTW. I was going to sell it for less here but I guess some random found it.

    Selling my 750Ti

    Not the AAA heavy hitters that people use for benchmarks, no. But lighter games like Fortnite and World of Final Fantasy run decently. Forza 3 also. I used shared ram to boost VRAM to 10.5GB on ultra textures. Older games get a breath of new llife for in 4k, they look totally different from what...

    Selling my 750Ti

    That last graph is crazy, never seen clockspeed versus time compared between reference cards before. Not even sure what that would do to impact perceived performance. Oh and thanks for putting in the part about the power pins, I forgot to mention that it doesn't require anything other than a...

    Selling my 750Ti

    In games does a better job at 4k than 5760x1080. When I used it with 3 monitors it was usually 1 for video, one for gaming and the 3rd for browsing or whatever.

    Selling my 750Ti

    It is pretty simple really, if you don't want to pay more for the better card then don't. Nothing about this is stopping you from grabbing the evga, it is all yours. My card is priced lower than any PNY XLR8, just check the prices and reviews for how they stack up.

    Selling my 750Ti

    That guy is charging shipping (that listing is $95 total) and it is an evga. The PNY XLR8 is factory overclocked and stomps the shit out of that card.

    Selling my 750Ti

    One of us is confused on the definition of 'pump and dump ' I think. I have been using this card for over 3 years and am the original owner. All I said pretty much is that this is my favorite card of all time and that it might still be the #1 card for 60 watts and under. (Including the 5850 that...

    Selling my 750Ti

    There was a reddit post about a guy who has a 7x 750Ti mining rig that he is about to add 13 more 750ti's to. Lol. The 1050 is quite a bit inferior to the 1050ti, and draws more power. At 60 watts the 750ti is still in the top 3 at least. It rocks for gaming, even some 4k and 3 monitor setups...

    Is there a way to hook up a 750ti to an old optiplex motherboard?

    No one would use it for BTC but they get up to 280h/s on monero.

    I'm not denying that it is a more efficient card thats why they are $200.

    Selling my 750Ti

    I have read an indepth review of the 1050 where it jumps to nearly 75w while overclocked, less when not OC'd of course. The 750ti will never pull that much without modding its fw / bios, even while OC'd. FWIW I don't consider the 1050 in the same class as 1050ti at all and don't see it as...

    Is there a way to hook up a 750ti to an old optiplex motherboard?

    I'm not sure if it supports pcie. I was thinking if it's a dedicated miner then it might not necessarily need a high bus speed so there may be alternatives not normally used for the gpu.

    Selling my 750Ti

    Yeah mine is $5 less than the next PNY XLR8, bus powered does not mean 60 watts BTW. Last I checked those newer cards are 75 watts. This particular manufacturer has historically held a premium price, it's one of the best for sure. Just look PNY XLR8 oc'd 750ti you will see. I am not trying to...

    My favorite card of all time, it still holds the record for best video card under 60watts if I'm not mistaken. I love the thing but I want some money towards an upgrade. http://www.ebay.com/itm/183114176573

    I'm thinking of getting some data recovery equipment for EMMC chips, is that still a thing?

    Anyone care to chime in on the longevity of that product/data standard? I'm interested in hearing others' input on it in terms of an investment as well.

    I need the schematics for this motherboard, no video after short

    Anyone know where I can get the schematics to the motherboard of an HP envy x 360 touchsmart 15 u010dx? It's like a $300 part and I want to try and do component level repair on it. Everything works 100% except the internal lcd after my friend put the keyboard tray in upside down.

    Which components should I test to help diagnose this laptop video problem? It works w/ hdmi only.

    My buddy was attempting to replace his keyboard and said he accidentally let some metal make contact with the main board. Afterwards he can only use hdmi to his TV and the internal screen never lights up at all. I took it apart and thoroughly tested the cables. I was hoping to find a short in...

    Decent inexpensive 5.1 system

    I will admit that JVC build quality seems better than RCA. But my $150 5.1 RCA system is not bad really, it has 3 hdmi, 2 aux, 2 optical, bluetooth and some other inputs. I will note that although it is a 1000watt system that the 300watt JVC seems to have more punch on the lower bass end of things.

    Modding 2.4ghz wireless mouse to use Bluetooth

    Ideally I would like to modify or rewrite the firmware that is on the chip which controls to radio. I believe bluetooth actually use the same 2.4Ghz ranges or very close to 2.4Ghz wifi at least.
