    Call of Duty: WWII

    Man you're not kidding. I can't believe there's only like 600 people in the world playing BF1 online on the PC. There's just a handful of populated servers and then just a few with decent ping on the west coast. Total bummer. I still pray for the days of BF42 where there were like 100...

    BATTLEFIELD 1

    Yep tired of it already. BF42 was a blast. I still play it. SO much more variety - way more vehicles, artillery, planes, jeeps. BF1 is fun - just a grudge match with some shitty stuff like getting killed with the sword through rocks or trees, 10 shots doing nothing, etc. I love the graphics...

    Seasonic Flagship PRIME 850W Power Supply Review @ [H]

    I just built a new rig using the reviews here and chose the Seasonic Prime 750w. Love it. Definitely the quietest PSU I've ever hard. The cables were nice and it came in a velvet bag and had a really nice metal case badge that I put on the front of my pc. Couldn't be happier and really...

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Yeah ok I hear ya. Yep same here. Only from Amazon. Just got my DELL S2417DG from Amazon. PERFECT. Not one dead or stuck pixel. 24" is the perfect size IMHO. After adjusting the color settings it looks really good.

    Dell S2417DG

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU bastard! Just turned my new S2417DG on and was like "ahhhh lame". Pulled up this thread that I had saved while doing my research, adjusted the settings and am now like "ahhhhhh YEEEAAAHHH!!". I cant' believe the difference. I love this so much better than the...

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Just bought the 2417DG this morning on Amazon for $470. It's been out of stock for awhile now. The 27" is back down to $550 but that's ok - worked out for the best I think. I really like the size of the 24" better. Web pages full screen on the 27" were just too wide, and the portrait mode...

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Then again I was kinda set on the S2417DG after trying the 27" ASUS Rog because I found it a little big for non-gaming use, but since the 27" Dell was only $560 I figured I had to get that one. Reading the thread on the S2417DG and peoples comments on 24" being the ideal size has my flip...

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Thanks J Macker. I'm pretty certain now that the S2716DG is the one I want. I had it in my Amazon cart last night for $560 and decided to sleep on it.... this morning it's $640. Sigh. 27" 1 ms Gsync for $560 seems like a really good deal.

    Ah lame the price on the 27" went up $90 over night. Argh.

    Benq was the other brand I was looking at. They have similar models and good reviews.

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    But yeah my hope is the quality in general is better with Dell even for the non-Ultrasharps. The last few Asus non-motherboard products I've bought have all been low quality.
  14. E

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Yeah they have pretty much the same policy as Asus on pixels. At least you can return it within 30 days on Amazon. Buying from Dell not so much except the Ultrasharps like you said. Amazon pays the shipping back as well. I've never had a dead pixel show up later so I'm not so worried about that...

    Dell S2716DG vs U2715H

    Funny my nephews nickname on Facebook is Citizen Snips. I was like... wait... no way. I just returned the Asus Rog 27" IPS to Amazon. Had 4 stuck grey pixels dead center in the screen. Right. Next. To. My. Cross hair. Off to the side maybe... but right in the middle for $800 ain't...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G Video Card Review @ [H]

    I just built a new rig a couple of weeks ago based off your reviews here using MSI Z170A motherboard, Seasonic Prime PSU and this bad boy. Thanks a ton for the reviews! The MB and PSU rock. Definitely the quietest desktop I've ever had between the Seasonic PSU and this card. I'm blown away...

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    Well I rolled the dice and wow the screen was beautiful! Unfortunately 4 dead pixels right in the middle of the screen. I fired up Battlefield 1942 (oh yeah still the best) and there was a L shaped group of gray pixels right next to my crosshair. Totally annoying. Reading the ASUS warranty...

    2nd stick of DDR4-3000 CL15-15-15-35 only runs at 15-17-17-39

    Yeah think I'm good. I may mess with some other settings later but sometimes good enough is good enough.

    2nd stick of DDR4-3000 CL15-15-15-35 only runs at 15-17-17-39

    Howdy, So I built a new rig last weekend and had a bad stick of G.Skill DDR4-3000 - one of two 16gb sticks that was preventing a POST. I got my new set of 32gb (2 16gb sticks) today and after some games in the BIOS got it to run at 3000mhz, but the latency's will only boot up at 15-17-17-39...

    New build wouldn't start - bad DIMM?

    Hi, Just hoping to confirm something with you all. So I put my new build together - MSI Z170A motherboard, G.Skill Rapjaw V 3000 23 gb - two sticks of 16 gb. It wouldn't post - gave error codes 55 00 16 od. I have the two dimms in slots 2 and 4. I took the stick out of slot 4 and whoola...

    Confused about M2 NVME and MSI Z170A Gaming M7

    Thanks emmjaws! Appreciate the quick response. Sounds like I'm good to go to order this puppy. I guess I was confused that the only mention of nvme also indicated using the U.2 connector. Sounds like M2 that is PCIe 3.0 x4 is always NVME and will support 32 Gb/s?

    Confused about M2 NVME and MSI Z170A Gaming M7

    Hi there, So I'm doing my first new build in something like 10 years. Yikes where have the years gone? I just ordered the MSI Z170A Gaming G7 and was now looking at SSD's. I'm looking at the Samsung 950 PRO 512 GB NVM Express. SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid...

    Tim Cook Says Lack Of Diversity In Tech Is 'Our Fault'

    My company is full of woman execs that keep pushing hiring woman and they suck. We even pay for their schooling. All they want to do is talk and hold meetings and ignore what the men say. So when is the Nursing, teaching, dietitian, etc. industry gonna start giving us men some training and...

    Apple Music Will Launch June 30th

    I've used Rhapsody for years and I love it... but for 2 years I had to use my old PC because there "newest" website didn't work on my new laptop despite many hours of tech support. Also they have about 2 supported MP3 players and Ipod's and Iphones aren't included. Even the Sony Walkam that I...

    Assassins Creed 3: American Revolution

    Looks pretty cool to me. I love, love, love the play of BF1942, but hate, hate, hate the new ones. Too much going on and too many long distance kills. This looks like lots of opportunities for up close and personal hatchets to the head. Yeah baby!

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    When I do ctrl-alt-del there is no bf3.exe running. It just won't work. I've tried everything. On the Origin Forum there's a ton of complaints and one says they know it's a problem and have to patch it in a couple of weeks.

    Gaming on a work laptop

    Just ask first. Let them know you won't be doing anything illegal or in bad taste. But don't be surprised if they say no. I would definitely go the get your own laptop route. They're cheap these days. ASUS is a popular bang for your buck gaming laptop. Even if you just crashed your work...

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    I have the same problem. It just says "Joining Server" and never starts the game. I chatted with an EA support guy last night, and he had me go into msconfig and turn off/disable EVERYTHING. LOL. Still didn't work. I noticed a blurb on the Origin support site about enabling certain ports...

    A New Laptop: Which Asus G73?

    Nice fine. Holy crap there is a lot of variants of the G73. This one looks like the best bang for the buck. Love the 30 day no restocking fee policy as well. Was tempted to get a M17x, but they both have issues. 30 days to try it out seems like a no brainer. It's quieter than the M17x and...

    Does Powerplay in Radeon Mobility work?

    Sounds promising. I was thinking about a desktop replacement notebook with enough juice to game, but be quiet when surfing in the kitchen. http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/ati-power-play/Pages/ati-power-play.aspx "Since the GPU consumes less power it also produces less heat...

    Does Powerplay in Radeon Mobility work?

    Radeon Mobility has something similar to Optimus (powerplay?) that allows you to switch to the integrated graphics when not gaming etc. Does that work? Does the onbaord Radeon fan turn off as well? I'm hoping when I'm just surfing in the family room that the Alienware will be quieter and cooler...

    Can't decide - feedback on gaming laptops

    Thanks for the input. I've had good times gaming on my current desktop, but it's old and loud (AMD64 & Nvidia 6800GT - about 6/7 yrs old). The noise doesn't bother me when I'm pawning online, but it's distracting when left on to manage photos etc. I'd love a nice quiet laptop that...
