    This guy made his own video "card," you can too.

    I saw these videos below and thought that this was pretty [H]ard. It isn't a video card in the classic sense as it can only output one frame at a time before needing to be reprogrammed, but it is still technically a video output device.

    I have a 1060 6GB card and upgraded my monitor to a 165hz 1440p Gsync in July. Everything was fine on my old monitor, 60 hz non-Gsync. Now when I install my video driver, everything works normal until I reboot. After rebooting, my games are all locked at 59 fps but my desktop and browser still...
