    Need to Activate Windows 8.1? Use your Windows 8 Key

    I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1 yesterday. I got it successfully activated by calling MS and getting an activation code based on my Win 8 product key. However, the SteelSeries Mouse/KB software and drivers (SteelSeries Engine) completely bricks Windows 8.1 and SteelSeries has no intention of...

    GeForce GTX 690 - Perfection Inside and Out @ [H]

    Try playing BF3 at 5760x1080 or higher (the people who should actually spend this kind of money on these cards) with everything maxed and see how much VRAM is used. Yeah.

    7970s in Xfire with 3 monitors

    This guy is running crossfire 7970s on 5 monitors (I think all of them are 120Hz too) in Eyefinity. He also does some tests on only 3 120hz monitors. He's a member of these forums so maybe you can contact him

    It's 2012, multi-monitor is the way to go. It's really not that expensive, compared to what it used to be. After having Eyefinity for a while now, I would never go back to single monitor gaming...ever. You really do not notice the bezels at all

    Not sure how many of you with AMD cards have been using this guy's unofficial beta drivers, but I've found that the 8.95 beta Jan 3rd drivers posted here combined with an installation of the 11.12 CAP2 posted here provide excellent performance in BF3 at least on a 6990 in Eyefinity. YMMV, but...

    Video Card hype/enthusiasm has gone down tremendously

    Has BF3 changed the perception that gameplay trumps graphics?

    BF3 has amazing graphics, but the gameplay is average at best. I still prefer something that challenges me -- even 12+ years later -- so I still play Quake Live with r_picmip 16. For me, a shooter that isn't all about achievements and sitting in the same spot for 10 minutes at a time will always...

    Steam on an SSD

    I have the Steam app in Program Files on my SSD (C drive) but all my games are on one of my mechanical drives (F drive). I simply created a directory on F: called "Steam Games", then moved all of the steam games to that directory, then I created junctions using Link Shell Extension so it looks...

    Worst PC game purchase this year?

    I've been burned far too many times with shitty titles in the past 5 years. But if it's a game by a trusted developer (i.e. Valve) I always make sure to pay full price. So maybe I shouldn't have said "every multiplayer game" in that last post.

    Worst PC game purchase this year?

    Brink...but like I do with every multiplayer game, I got it through a CDkey site so saving 35% on launch day kinda softens the blow a bit, but Brink was still horrible. It went from $60 to $4.99 on Steam in less than 8 months

    New, leaked AMD drivers (Nov. 18)

    Seems to be a good day for AMD drivers... First we have the leaked 8.93 (Nov. 18) drivers (I believe this is a form of 12.1 beta, which offers some new features in CCC such as CAP settings) and now we have the AMD Catalyst 11.11a "Performance Driver" (8.911.1 November 18) Personally, I...

    Cats 11.12EB drivers fix crossfire scaling in Skyrim

    Are these any different from the 8.92 (Nov. 3rd) leaked drivers that came out a while ago on the Guru3D forums? BF3 performance is absolutely amazing with those Edit: nvm, the drivers in this thread are older

    I work 5 and sometimes 6 days a week, have gone out Thurs, Fri, and Saturday nights for the past 2 weeks of BF3's release, and also have exactly 40 hours of playing time. Still find the game getting incredibly stale at this point. Broad (though indirect) indictments of people's lack of...

    Actually that is a good point, I've mainly played Conquest... I suppose I should try playing more Rush now :D I've played about 15 hours with engineer, 15 with assault, and about 10 with support.

    Battlefield 3 General Discussion Thread

    Is it just me (hint: it's not) but does this game seem kinda boring / lacking in the longevity department after playing it for a long time? I feel like I've seen most of what it has to offer after playing these past 2 weeks. Curious about [H]'s thoughts on this. FPS GENRE, Y U GETTIN SO STALE?

    Stop with this "modern warfare" theme, bring back real FPS games

    Ding ding ding... It's always amusing to see these children on here who've never had the coordination to do something like rocket jumping or strafe jumping... rofl "bunny hopping." This guy should go back to hiding behind crates for 15 minutes at a time, waiting for the enemy to peek out.

    BF3 Performance Questions for Eyefinity players

    This is my work around for the no enemy/team icons (well, not really a workaround for ME, since I don't run Windows at 5760x1080 at all times, only when launching a game) from my thread over at the Overclock.net Forums: "Okay, I just got the no-arrows-above-team/enemies bug for the first...

    BF3 Performance Questions for Eyefinity players

    Hey AMD card users (WITH EYEFINITY), I'm curious what kind of performance you get in BF3 with Eyefinity -- In-game I've tested a few different graphics settings using the 11.10 Preview 3 drivers with CAP4 at 5760x1080 - I can seem to get 55 to 85 fps however despite the decent FPS numbers, the...
