    DokeV - A creature collecting open world action adventure game

    This is one of the most mind blowing video game trailers I've seen. The graphics, the animation, the mobility, the gameplay variety. It all looks so incredible.

    Is Samsung CRG9 worth $899

    Seems like a HUGE discount for Prime day. I was thinking about getting a 49" ultrawide for work purposes (programming) but the quality control on these things has me leery.

    It Takes Two

    I can't believe there isn't a thread on this. It's criminal, CRIMINAL I tell ya! I'll get straight to the point. This is one of the most delightful games I've ever played. The graphics are something straight out of a Disney/Pixar film. Absolutely gorgeous. Voice acting and humor are top notch...

    Do M.2 drives have to be screwed down?

    I know they *should* be screwed down, but does the screw serve any purpose other than holding the drive down? Does it act as a electrical ground or anything like that? Reason I ask is because one of the M.2 posts on my mobo seems smaller than usual. The M.2 screws that came with the motherboard...

    Windows 10 right click bug

    For anyone with Windows 10, can you run this quick test? Right click an empty space on your desktop to open the context menu. Continue right clicking on various empty spaces on your desktop. Do this 10+ times. The more the better. Does the context menu begin opening more and more delayed? I'm...

    PSU Connector Rant

    These connectors have got to go. It's 2019. There has to be a better way. I spent the last few days troubleshooting some PSU issues which involved swapping different PSUs back and forth between systems. Which meant a lot of plugging and unplugging of the above types of cables. My fingers were...

    EVGA Supernova 650 GM Coil Whine

    So I built my first SFFPC and unfortunately the PSU is screeching away like no tomorrow. Take a listen, this is just loading up the Hitman 2 menu screen: https://clyp.it/s0tzml13?token=acb566a5af6a9a9b155d3288609cb455 Interestingly enough, it doesn't happen with Resident Evil 2.

    Asus Strix Z390i 9900k compatibility

    I'm looking to purchase a mini-itx board (specifically, the Asus Z390i) along with a 9900k but there was a review on Newegg that concerned me. The guy said he had to buy an 8 series CPU just to update the bios to be able to support a 9900k. Is this true? Should I be looking for another...

    Rated M - A multiplayer Cards Against Humanity featuring picture cards

    Are we allowed to self promote in here? If not, I apologize, and please take this down. Otherwise... I released my first Android game today called Rated M. It's based on Cards Against Humanity. What really sets it apart from Cards Against Humanity is the ability to submit picture cards. Using a...

    Trying to remember the name of a game...

    I don't know why, but this game randomly popped into my head and I have no idea what it was called. Only some vague details: It was a first person shooter, on PC at the very least. Took place in a sci-fi-ish setting and featured portals (perhaps even before Portal came out). I believe that...

    Intermittent solid HD light at boot, unable to load windows

    I have a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD. Only two months old. I've been having an intermittent problem at boot. Happens approximately once out of every 5 boots. I will get to the Windows logo after POST, or simply a black screen, and then it will sit there for like 10 minutes with a solid HD...

    Lego Worlds

    How does this not have a thread yet? Looks incredible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frRfo4sKxtk I need to stay far away. Games like this are a time sink. But damn, this is hitting me right in the childhood feels. $14.99 on Steam Early Access.

    Does a failing S.M.A.R.T. test at post warrant a replacement?

    I have a Sandisk SSD just under 3 years old. Recently it has started to fail the S.M.A.R.T. test during POST so I had do disable the test in BIOS. The drive boots fine most of the time, but other times it will fail to read files during boot and Windows won't load. Is this something that a...

    How is windows desktop able to do vsync without input lag?

    Windows desktop does vsync without any input lag when moving the cursor around. Yet once you run a full screen game with vsync on it's a total lag fest. Why is that?

    GSYNC vs. ULMB for Gaming

    Which do you prefer? ULMB has the biggest wow factor for me. Even with a ROG Swift, 144Hz GSYNC still blurs. But turn on ULMB and all of a sudden the backgrounds come in sharp focus. It kind of seems like a waste of money to have a GSYNC monitor and not use it though. So I guess I'll have...

    What effect does > 1080p have on the visual quality of gaming?

    Is there any visual benefit to gaming > 1080p? I understand that a having a higher pixel density will result in a sharper image, and perhaps less anti-aliasing will be needed thus resulting in a slightly less blurry image. But are there any other benefits? Do the textures in games benefit at...

    New Build - Windows setup can't find hard drive

    Melted Wire

    Hey guys, My parents' computer recently turned off and went up in smoke out of nowhere. I took it outside, inspected it, and saw that this cable had melted (the one connecting to the video card). I replaced this cable with a new one, turned the computer on, and just like...

    Best speaker option to get close to headphone quality?

    I don't really know anything about HTPC's, but I do know that listening through headphones, even cheap headphones (Sony MDR-V6 studio monitors) sounds sooo much better than my Klipsch 5.1 system (it's actually a Logitech Z-5500 matched with Klipsch 5.1 satellites). The clarity of the headphones...

    BIOS update causing boot problems?

    I recently updated the BIOS for my motherboard. Asus Rampage III Formula. I updated it using the Asus EZ Flash 2 feature of the BIOS. Update went without a hitch. I restored factory defaults and powered down. Ever since the update, every time I turn my computer on (cold start), it will power...

    Windows 8 reboots out of nowhere?

    Is there a log or something that I could look at after the computer randomly reboots? All I was doing was browsing the web and the screen just went black and rebooted. No error messages, no blue screen, nothing. Second time this has happened in the past few weeks. :(

    Multiple Display Edge Barrier

    When you have multiple displays of differing resolutions, the cursor will get stuck at the top most or bottom most edges while trying to transition from the bigger monitor to the smaller one. For example, if one monitor is 1600 pixels tall and the other is 1200 pixels tall, there will be a 400...

    ZR30w Sucks!

    Explain to me something. If you guarantee that your exquisite $1200 display has ZERO bright dots, then why don't you have a QA team verify it before packing it up? 2nd ZR30w now. Returned the first due to a bright green pixel. Just turned on the new one, and within one minute of putting on a...

    BF3 Crashing

    Verizon DSL and Router

    Plasma TV Pixel Noise?

    Just got a Panasonic P42S2 and noticed that when sitting close (like too close for comfort), there is greenish dots or "pixel noise" especially on the blacks/shadows. Noticed that changing the image setting from "Standard" to anything else pretty much removes them. "Standard" also happens to be...

    Buying an HDTV - Newegg or Walmart?

This one to be precise: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889187153 Normally I wouldn't even consider Walmart but they allow their items to be returned to the store. So if there are any dead pixels, I can simply return it to...

    New System Build - Slow Aero and/or Window Dragging Performance?

    This is a bit strange. I just did a new system build and a Win7 x64 install. I'm noticing a bit of slowdown (imagine low fps) intermittently when I drag a window to the edge of the screen and the aero glass animation plays. The window drag operation is kind of choppy during the glass animation...
