    Question regarding EVGA 980Ti ACX 2.0+ & SC Model

    Hello all, I am sending my EVGA 980 Kingpin out today as part of the Step-Up program in exchange for the EVGA 980Ti ACX 2.0+ (Non-SC) model. I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but I am wrong to assume that the only difference between the standard ACX 2.0+ model and the SC model is...

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    Hi all, I just recently replaced a GTX 680 with a GTX 980 Kingpin. I am wondering if it's possible that I'm bottlenecking the GPU as the performance gains in games that I have been playing haven't been as significant as I would have expected at comparable graphics settings. I'm only running...

    Far Cry 3 on my Nexus 7

    Pretty cool... The game runs through Splashtop at 30FPS. Although it's playable, it's not very practical however I have been playing Rayman Origins on it. This is done simply by using Splashtop streamer. And if someone would ask me why... I wanted to play NBA...

    Batman AC starts up slow at random

    More often than not when I start Batman AC it runs like absolute dogshit, regardless of whether I have the settings maxed out on DX11 or minimal on DX9.
