    How do people compare game benchmarks perfectly?

    Ok thanks guys. I’m not a reviewer. I’m upgrading from a 3770k to a 12900 and using my 3080 to the new rig. Obviously, I’ll have a huge difference in performance but seeing the actual numbers will be interesting.

    How do people compare game benchmarks perfectly?

    For games that don’t have an in-game benchmark, how do people navigate what seems like the exact same route in a game for 2 videos? I mean yeah, I think maybe they are doing the route manually, but surely there is an automated way?

    How and when did WASD + mouse look control scheme actually start?

    I have on clue. When I started playing FPS in the 90s, I immediately got annoyed with WASD, and I instantly switched to the cursor buttons. I didn't understand why they would want you to have your movement keys buried in a sea of other keys. The cursor keys nicely isolates your movement keys...

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    I get really scared of console to PC games vs games that are released on console and PC at the same time. I guess 2077 kinda broke that rule now lol. So I waited it out and read many of threads on the Steam forums, saw pictures of glitches people were seeing, saw the patch notes as they rolled...

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    I got over 170 hours in the first play through about 6 months ago. I want to play it again, but I am not doing so until I see how the patches advance. The biggest changes I want to see are the AI (they need to be more difficult and smarter) and little things here and there like the cardboard...

    Could D5 interfence with video cable signal?

    Dang. I'm really going to need to hope for the best then! TY. I just noticed D5 descriptions usually state "A separate magnetic shielding of the pump is not needed." I might be able to get it 4-5 inches away if I go with a shorter reservoir.

    Could D5 interfence with video cable signal?

    I am externally mounting a reservoir with a D5 pump that could be a 1-3 inches away from the video cable. Is there any possibility of the magnets in the D5 messing with the video signal?

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    This is EXACTLY what I am worried about. I own a few obscure audio CDs that don’t even exist in the streaming world. A few years ago it happened to me with a movie I wanted to watch. I had to mail it to me from Netflix to watch it because it couldn’t be streamed anywhere. At some point people...

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I stopped collecting BRs and stopped using my entertainment PC a while back because of how convenient all the streaming and saving of movies on the DVR was. I’ve gotten pretty annoyed with my new TV service deciding to only keep recordings for 90 days. Lately I’ve also gotten annoyed at...

    Doom Eternal

    So I bought Eternal on sale a few weeks ago. I’ve enjoyed Doom since the 90s. I’m REALLY trying to like Eternal, but the closed in courtyard fights is annoying the snot out of me.

    3dfan does have a point. With the tests that I did at 1920 x 1200 with that Startech, 97Hz (325Mhz pixel clock) was out of the FW900's range, but I was able to get 96Hz Viewable (322Mhz pixel clock) and under. At 2304 x 1440 I was able to get 78Hz Viewable (372Mhz pixel clock). Above 78Hz at...

    I'd be afraid to suggest a USB-C adapter, though. Look what happened to me. I went from a 2070 Super that had the USB-C adapter to a 3080 that doesn't have a USB-C adapter. I have no clue why they dropped that port, but I think it is safe to say a specialized video port like the DP will stay...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Wow either you guys had golden samples, or I was doing something wrong. I'm at 2235 x 1397 @83Hz which makes it about 375Mhz. I was also using CRU. If I went up 1Hz which brought me to about 380Mhz, the Delock would start doing strange things like mirroring images around the screen. I...

    Yep that is the one. It's the Delock 87685 which has the 1 x DisplayPort 20, 1 x HDMI,and 1 x VGA output. This one. I did a bunch of testing in this reply, and I could never get it to look well past 375. But I also was not testing with very low resolutions.

    Ah I forgot to type that my 375 is at 2235 x 1397. I updated my reply. A different resolution might be higher, but at 500+? Wow. My Delock, which is the same as the Sunix as far as I am aware, also couldn't make it past 375 at my funky resolution and a few other resolutions.

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Guys, I wanted to mention I am now using the StarTech DP2VGAHD20 with an EVGA 3080. 375 pixel clock at 2235 x 1397 is as beautiful as ever :D. The card has 3 x DisplayPort 1.4a, which support up to 144Hz at 4K, and an HDMI 2.1 port. Such a shame these cards can't do analog by themselves, but...

    Is Firefox Going Down the Drain?

    Alright thx! I guess I'll just have to do a deep cleaning of it one of these days. I've been with Firefox since the early 2000s, and I would hate to stop using it.

    Is Firefox Going Down the Drain?

    More and more I've noticed some sites not loading properly or parts of websites never loading at all. One example is a little gif in a site blowing itself up on the entire page. The page looks fine if I paste the link in Chrome. I come across sites doing weird things maybe once every few days...

    There are a few shader enhancements to the game that make it really pop. I’ve probably played it like 4 or 5 times throughout the years.

    Are computers becoming more and more boring to you?

    My problem with games these days is all the crutches for the softer generation which is what, to me, makes them all feel the same. Online Quake, Unreal Tournament, etc. There was no matchmaking. We all played against superior gamers and we sucked it up. We didn't go whining to the devs that...

    Why do people hate bullet sponges?

    I'd like to wrap my head around the why since so many people mention it, and people that really hate it have no problem at all strongly voicing their opinion about it. I absolutely love bullet sponges. None of my old school friends hate bullet sponges. The longer a battle is the better. I...
