    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Definitely went overboard with displays, but they were giving away monitors at work, so I picked up a couple. Have the desk space, have the GPU power...so why not. I really like it. Don't have to minimize or switch between windows anymore. If you want to read about my ultrawide display, check...

    ASUS ROG Strix Ultra-wide Monitor (XG349C) Review

    I purchased this monitor on Amazon for $699. Then the price of monitor went down by $10 while the package was enroute. I decided to contact the seller and asked them if they could give me a discount, and they responded shortly, and gave me a $10 refund. Very generous of them. The monitor is a...

    what is your Game of the Year for 2018?

    The only game I bought in 2018 was Battlefield V, and man, its got some problems (design and gameplay related). If I had to vote for the best game I played this year regardless of the release date, it would be Witcher 3 and its expansions.

    Do I really need G-sync?

    I am not sure about needing GSYNC. It maybe a matter of preference, but I can guarantee you, modern games don't get 144Hz all that easily on ultra settings. Witcher 3, a 2015 game, does not consistently run over 100FPS on ultra settings with HD textures. Now, one might argue that the mods...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Yeah...I can't ever go back to a single display anymore. Perhaps I can work with a large 4k screen...but a single 1080p or 1440p monitor is not something I can work with. I need a secondary display.

    What was your first HOLY COW! moment with an actual video card?

    Back in the day, when I plugged in my GeForce 2MX and fired up Return to Castle Wolfenstein...that was something else.

    astronomical GPU prices?

    I am so glad I bought a 1080Ti (for gaming) in December, when the prices werent as insane. I paid $779 for the MSI Gaming version, and its fantastic. I am looking at the prices now, and they are insane. I would hate to be shopping for a GPU at this time...

    Got my ROG Swift!

    Here are a couple of CSVs generated by FRAPS when running BF4 on ultra https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8FKbT_dWmoldlU5OFBxUUNtQnc/view?usp=sharing The performance is not great, but I play with AA off, the performance significantly better.

    Got my ROG Swift!

    Yes, definitely wait until the prices go down. I got impatient and just went with it, but otherwise, waiting is the best option. Thank you, I appreciate it. It took a while for me to get good clips that I can put together. The video is actually rendered at 4k resolution.

    Evga GeForce GTX 980 - Battlefield 4 Ultra Settings

    Those numbers are pretty awesome. I wouldn't upgrade at all with the kind of performance you are getting. I did in the video. Forgot to mention it in the post. You are right that having different ISP and pings etc will impact gameplay, I wanted to share my experience with other folks who...

    Could you link me to that review? I am asking because I searched around for multiplayer 64p conquest benchmarks, but I found nothing. That's why I made the video. I thought there will be folks out there who will find it useful. EDIT - OK, I found this -...

    Could I get your opinions on this build?

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will take a look at the motherboard. I already have a PSU that I can use. I am thinking about this RAM instead of the GSkill. Its cheaper, and I've been told that there isn't a whole lot of difference between them -...

    Should I wait for Broadwell, or go with Haswell?

    My mistake. I meant to write 4790k. Also, do you happen to know a good motherboard for it?

    Should I wait for Broadwell, or go with Haswell?

    I think I have already narrowed down on the build I want. I am going with the i7 4770k. Hopefully, I don't regret buying this when I am kind of close to the release of Broadwell!

    Thanks guys. Now what about the processor? Would it be wise to wait for Broadwell or is it OK if I went with the latest Haswell? Thanks.

    Is DDR4 a significant improvement over DDR3? Also, is there any point in going for 32GB of RAM over 16GB? Thanks.

    Battlefield 4 Loadout Ideas

    For sunken dragon and propaganda, I go as the engineer with ACWR. The other two maps, it depends on what my squad mates are playing as. I might go support or assault. Now, I rarely ever play recon these days...I really should.
