    Fallout 4 Performance and Image Quality Preview @ [H]

    Thanks Kyle and Brent! Nothing like some old school manual tweaking to get that vsync going, and who knows what other support features could be enabled that way. Looking forward for the bigger review!

    RAID Strategy with 8x 6TB Disks

    For a similar sized, 6x6TB drives, internal RAID6 array, what RAID controller card would you guys recommend? I have been looking at the Areca 1882i, and i know there are a few others out there that can do a similar task. Or is it even worth getting a RAID6 card these days? Thanks!

    Your video card time to upgrade criteria?

    Used to be every other cycle, or when money allowed for it. Not as much need now, to be competitive you actually need run lower graphic settings, so upgrading was a waist of money. And so many games out, can't play them all so no point buying them on 0-day, might as well wait for sales, and get...

    Intel Devil's Canyon: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly @ [H]

    Slightly disappointed, but not surprised. Was also looking to upgrade, but i guess one more year the way it is isn't a bad thing. Kyle, thanks for the review.

    GTX 880 and 800 Series to be More Powerful But Cheaper than the 700 Series

    I'm just happy that the 20nm production is picking up. Was getting worried that we would have to wait another year or two for the 20nm parts and the next iteration would simply be 28nm with added architecture, or revamped architecture. That's what some of the rumors a few months ago were saying.

    Best upgrade from GTX275

    Just putting what i think you want and what people are saying into perspective. If you want to have best performance for the buck, go with with a 280x or even a R9 290 (can be had for under 300 in some cases). But then you will need to spend some time with your computer and make some driver...

    R9 prices coming down?

    Haven't been following the trends too much, but anyone know why the R9 suddenly fell in price? Also, between the Asus, Sapphire and XFX, any suggestions on which card to get? The NV 780s are a bit too rich for my liking still, but i do need a quite card, and both the Sapphire Tri-X and XFX...

    Is 290 better than GTX 780?

    Question is popping up, the 780s can be had for $520-550, while the R9 290 (non x) can be had for $400-440.. go with the R9 290?

    Hi Guys, looking at this nice little phone. Reviews seem mostly positive and good for what i need: - small phone - excellent battery life - ok camera - good screen - lots of space and very compatible. My question is if anyone has one and your thoughts? Does anyone have one in the USA...

    Sword of the Stars 1

    The first SOTS was Epic, almost a MOO sequel I would say. They really messed up SOTS2 though.. just plain wrong. Talk about butchering a perfectly good concept that people loved.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    Thanks for posting, this game looks amazing, if they can pull of the combat system to be similar (or better) to Mount & Blade, that would make this an Epic game!

    any noteworthy phones in the line-up this Spring?

    If youre looking for a smaller phone with excellent (probably the best) battery life, looks at the Sony Z1 Compact. I'm been following it. Lots of memory (expandable), pretty good camera, the best battery of probably any android phone (or iPhone) and it's submersible. Don;t know about you...

    Anyone else pick up a Sony Xperia Z1S today?

    what would you choose?

    Depending on the type of games you're looking to play. The boobs you can not only play with, but also sleep on and they keep you warm (the R9 290 can also keep you warm, but only if it's working as a heater).. so win win.

    290/290x availability thread

    That's the beauty of 1440p, you don't need much AA since the pixels are so dense, its AA through pixel density. So yes, you can do 120fps. But even lower FPS just look smoother on a 120hz monitor.

    24inch 1920 x 1200 true 8bit ips 6ms or faster with glossy screen for 300ish?

    for 300ish, go with the korean 27" 1440p, they can be easily overclocked to 96Hz (or 120Mh if you're lucky). You don't even need to turn on any AA at that resolution.

    Safest bet - Korean monitors. throwing this one into the pot too, the company is in CA, so if anything goes wrong, they are around. The panel itself also comes with a nicer stand and the brezel is much much nicer. I just got mine recently, it's good, some backlight...

    PERC6 controller PCIe slot issue

    The motherboard is having a not working RAM slot so i was RMAing it. Wait, both the link you provided and myself are saying its an I card, or am i missing something??? The card works flawlessly for years (running on 3 years for me), so the card itself isn't a problem.

    PERC6 controller PCIe slot issue

    Great assumptions (sorry i should have been more descriptive in my post) It it a Perc 6i card, it's an easy fit actually. I looked on these forums at the time of purchase, others had it working, and even the tape mod was not required for the motherboard i had. (win-win)...

    PERC6 controller PCIe slot issue

    Hi guys, just wanted to ask if anyone had an odd problem. I'm pretty sure it's the motherboard, but who knows. I am doing an RMA on my motherboard, and the new board that arrived, well, the PERC6 card does not want to work in it if it's in the second PCIe slot. It has power (the LED is...

    ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II OC Video Card Review @ [H]

    Kyle, Brent Thank you. Really hoping the prices on these stay at MSRP. P.S. the editors note at the end of page 8 might need to be stressed more. With these cards performing as they do.. any chance you could do a closed case test?

    mechwarrior online

    The Clan pack is the single biggest money grab i have ever seen... Makes me want to go and play EveOnline.. at least it's cheaper (and you can get it on Steam sale). The game is fun, but man, it's not worth spending the money on. I do think that i they cut the amount of money that they are...

    600+ damage in an atlas in one game isn't odd. It should the norm... But you know whats cool, my Shadowhawk doing 500+ damage (if i survive the round) and weighing in at 45% less than an atlas... And there are no Hero Shadowhawks yet. And as someone who loves to get into a Spider occasionally...

    MWO isn't pay-to-win. Yes some of the Hero Mechs (for $) are better, but not so much. the Blackjack with an AC20 in it, that's a free mech. the Atlas DDC, considered arguably the best mech in the game, it's free. The heavy metal is the best Highlander, but the 733C is almost the same. The Dual...

    yes, because the drivers that this summer crashed so many 780 cards were sooooo good :rolleyes: (sorry, i agree on most points that 780 has better cooling, sound profile and overall is a better card, but it's also a much more expensive product. For the price difference, you can put a custom...
