    Quake Remastered

    I always think that’s a good idea as an option, but whenever I play games that can implement CRT filters, inevitably I always end up playing without it. I guess it’s partially because most of the CRT filters I see are either way too heavy-handed with the effect or don’t look convincing enough...

    Quake Remastered

    For me, the old graphics really are part of the charm of the game. Back in the Unreal days I worked at 3dfx, and those early 3D graphics just take me back to that memorable time.

    WD MyBook Live NAS if you own one, disconnect it from the internet immediately

    There is a remote execution attack that’s wiping those NAS drives completely. Evidently WD knew about this vulnerability for years and never patched it. It happened to my MyBook Live Duo RAID1 NAS two days ago, when it seems this attack struck worldwide around that time. I went to access...

    Windows 95 is 25 Years Old Today!!!

    Ah yes I remember that day so clearly. I remember the day it launched I was at the beach thinking about it all day. I had just got a Packard Bell Force 840CD - a blazing Pentium 100MHz, 8MB of ram, and a 2X CD-ROM drive lol. I would eventually upgrade it using the Intel Pentium Overdrive...

    Word under the sea is that Win10 is letting you activate with win7 keys?

    Yep, Win 7 sure does activate Win 10. I just downloaded the latest Win 10 install file from Microsoft and did a clean install , which activated just fine using a Win 7 key from an old laptop I have here that I no longer use.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    The players with higher scores just did more things during the match that awards points, such as shooting down spy planes/helicopters, achievements, score streak bonuses, etc. There are like million achievements in COD lol.

    Diablo Immortal Alpha Is Out in Australia and the First Impressions Are Positive

    I actually forgot about this game. I like D3 a lot but I think I’ll pass on this one.

    Need a bit of help re: multi-monitor

    Thanks guys I really appreciate it. Just one other question - my monitors both have DVI and DisplayPort ports on them. If the video card has one of each port (DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI), I assume I will connect one monitor to the DVI and one to the DisplayPort ports? I really appreciate the...

    Need a bit of help re: multi-monitor

    This is kind of a noobish question but here goes: I don't game much these days and mainly use my computer for photo/video work and have always had dual monitors. My old GTX 660 needs replacing and I see that no new video cards use dual-DVI output connectors anymore. For a new card, I assume I...

    I don't know, if it was that cheap that's kind of funny. Has this game really become that unpopular?

    Star Wars Battlefront II - $9.99 @ Best Buy, Free Ship

    I bought one out of curiosity and $9.99 with free shipping was fine by me even if I had no specific interest in the series (or EA). Anyway, it's at Best Buy for all platforms for $9.99 and shipping was free when I ordered...

    Game trailers and previews only showing cinematics

    This is something that always annoyed me. A new game comes out, and there are one or more videos giving a preview of the game and the videos only show cinematic scenes and not the game itself. I assume they feel that an impressive cinematic would make the viewer think the game either looked...

    Dual DVI, why so hard to find?

    Thank you so much everybody. That clears everything up for me. I've been busy with work and other things so I haven't kept up to date on current GPU stuff. I really appreciate it!

    Dual DVI, why so hard to find?

    Thank you so much for the info. My monitors are Dell Ultrasharp U2412M displays (24 inch, 1920x1200). I just checked and each monitor has a DisplayPort connection. Stupid me for assuming I didn’t. So in this case I can just not worry about connecting a monitor to the DVI connector on the video...

    Dual DVI, why so hard to find?

    I use dual monitors, and my current card is a GTX660 with dual DVI outputs. I am looking for a replacement, but it seems that finding a dual-DVI card is very hard to find. I see most have a single DVI and also a DisplayPort now - is there a solution for that to use dual monitors? I am kind of...

    Help downloading Win7 SP1

    I really appreciate the help, SpasTas0917 , zero2dash and MrGreg62, thank you! That was exactly what I needed :) I was also wondering about what Executioner was asking. I'm glad that MS finally released rolled-up security updates which makes it way easier.

    CPU/GPU temp and fan monitoring utility

    NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 358.87 WHQL Drivers

    I'm a bit ignorant on this because I never bothered to use GeForce Experience. I only installed it once and saw it as basically fluff, and never installed it on subsequent driver updates. Why will it be important to NVIDIA to mandate GFE to install their drivers?

    Battlefield or COD? Help please hotties <3

    I've been reading that. Is CoD at least using dedicated servers these days or is it still matchmaking peer-to-peer stuff? Battlefield 4 looks alright. Damn, I hate having to catch up on this stuff :(

    Ducky Zero DK2108S keyboard question

    It could be - the keyboard is clearly receiving power to light the LEDs when the computer is powered down. I checked the computer's BIOS and I see no settings pertaining to that. Could just be a quirk of the keyboard with this motherboard, who knows. I appreciate the replies :)

    Ducky Zero DK2108S keyboard question

    Hi all, I bought a Ducky DK2108S and I think it's a killer keyboard. One thing I notice though, is if I power down the computer while the keyboard LEDs are active, they will just stay lit with the computer off. At that point the only way to shut off the LEDs is to disconnect the keyboard or...
