    Does PC gaming work well on a large TV?

    I'd like to share that I've been using a Panasonic Viera 47" LED TV for a few years now with an HDMI cable run through the wall into my living room for gaming. I have the Logitech (I think K40) keyboard with a touchpad that I use and XBOX 360 controllers to play. It works flawlessly. I don't...

    General Zelda Question

    Thanks for the link - I have the XL although I did see there are others available. I'll stick it out, I think what irritates me the most is the little joystick itself.

    I'd be further in by now if my hands didn't cramp like a mofo on the 3DS haha!

    General Zelda Question

    Haha I understand that completely. I don't avoid something if I see it, but reading through a couple of walkthroughs there's a ton of "extra" stuff to do along the journey.

    General Zelda Question

    Hello all, I'm a Zelda series amateur. I have never really gotten in to the games but figured I'd give them a try. I have the Wind Waker HD that I've put a few hours in to on the Wii U, as well as Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask on the 3DS. My question is, am I required to generally...

    Console Only?

    The only console I currently own is the Wii U and I love the crap out of it with the exception of how expensive Nintendo games are.

    Mafia II did kinda suck. I played maybe half way through the campaign and burned out.

    GTX 980 Ti: reference vs. custom

    Just got my ref EVGA 980 Ti today and damn what a bad ass card. Smokes my previous GTX 980 Kingpin and I haven't touched clock speeds yet. Good job Nvidia!

    980Ti Kingpin fully shown. Jesus Christ....

    That is some serious hardware porn right there.

    Question regarding EVGA 980Ti ACX 2.0+ & SC Model

    Well that's good for me then. The backplate is $20 I'll order it when it comes back in stock. EVGA doesn't really offer any options as far as step-up models.

    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...

    Batman: Arkham Knight

    Glad to see that retailers (ie. Steam & GMG) have pulled this from their stores until Rocksteady gets their shit together.

    The worst game trailer I've ever seen

    Ehh I have a 3DS and a Wii U and have plenty of great games for both and I was OK with paying almost MSRP for pretty much all of them. The games have great content even though the hardware may be lacking (which the games still look damn good).

    Batman: Arkham Knight

    I beat Arkham Asylum but didn't play the other two. I have a key for Arkham Knight that came with my video card. If I dive right in am I missing out not having played the others?

    980 Ti

    OK, so no biggie in regards to anyone stepping up (myself included whenever EVGA gives me the green light) if they decide to release the backplate for the other models. Edit: Or if it will ever be in stock lol. http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=100-BP-4995-B9

    980 Ti

    Is the only real difference between the Superclocked ACX 2.0+ vs just the standard ACX 2.0+ models the backplate and factory overclock?

    Intel & NVIDIA Dominate The Initial Steam Machines

    I wish the streaming box was around before I drilled a hole in my wall to run an HDMI cable through to my TV lol. I disagree about the Steam machines though... I think if they can promote the product properly they might steal some console people over. The price of PC games are so much better...

    980 Ti

    Welp, I'm not too concerned about that. I feel silly that I'm stepping up from a badass Kingpin model to a reference model but the performance numbers don't lie. Oh well.

    980 Ti

    I'm going to go ahead and ask a dumb questions here: Is the EVGA GTX 680ti ACX 2.0+ a reference card?

    EVGA Step-Up Limitations for 980Ti

    It's a program that allows you to upgrade your card to a newer model and pay the difference if you've purchased within the last 90 days - it really has nothing to do with the 3.5gate. Details are on the EVGA website.

    980 Ti

    I was able to. Just waiting in a queue right now. I got the Kingpin model for $660 after rebate so I'm losing $10 and paying $15 for the shipping. Not too bummed out about it!

    EVGA Step-Up Limitations for 980Ti

    I'm stepping up from the 980 GTX Kingpin to the 980ti... It's only costing me for shipping and I got the Kingpin for $660. I'm not too bummed.

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    Well I ran Memtest86 and it passed, I ran HCI Memtest overnight with four instances of the application open as per the instructions to make sure that all of my RAM was tested and I woke up this morning with 0 errors after running for over 8 hours. All of my games run fine - I'm officially...

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    Still can't figure out the CPU stress test issues. I have problems running the Intel Burn Test as well. I ran 3DMark Fire Strike and here were my results with no crashing or artifacting: Stock CPU Stock GPU = 11,500 4.8GHz CPU Stock GPU = 12,401 4.8GHz CPU +100/+250 GPU = 13,180 In this...

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    I brought the multiplier as low as 40 and still couldn't get Prime95 to run through. at 4.9GHz on Windows 7 the stress test could run for days with no problem.

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    Upgraded to 8.1 Pro - the performance is MUCH better. I'm not sure if it's so much the upgrade as it is a fresh install of the OS. On another note, I was running my i7-2600K at 4.9GHz with really just changing the multiplier to 49 and a few other things. I cannot run a single pass in Prime95...

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    I think it might be time to do a clean wipe of my drive and install a fresh copy of 8.1. I used to reformat every 6 months back in the day - I've been running the same OS now for 3 years.

    Bottlenecking my 980 GTX?

    I don't have any to compare to my 680 GTX unfortunately. I mostly play GTA V and have been reading about vsync issues that people are encountering lately... I wonder if that could be my issue because at some point the performance really takes a dump and it feels like the game is running under 30...
