    Who's going to wait out the 970/980 craze?

    I will. There is no point in "upgrading" to 970 and 980 is too expensive for my liking. Actually, I wouldn't get 780 either if not the fact that upgrading from 7950 to (eventually) 780 was pretty much free thanks to mining and reselling GPUs... I was considering second 780, but probably not...

    What is going to be a realistic price for the R9-290x and R9-290?

    Because of low supply/high demand and VAT price of 970 is much higher in my country, but assuming the 330$ price tag, 290X shouldn't cost more than 270$ while 290 should be 250$. There has to be a noticable difference in price between 290/970, because NV not only is faster and clocks better...

    GTX 780 DirectCU II SLI question

    Anyone is running GTX 780 DirectCu II SLI? 780 prices dropped and I might have a good deal on second Asus GPU, for my dual GPU configuration. My PSU should handle it ezpz. The only thing I am concerned are temperatures. When my rig consisted of 7950OC + 280X for mining purposes, god, it was...

    GTX 970/980 specs @ Techpowerup, plus 3dmark gpu-score leaks... Neo: "Woah."

    Are there any reliable tests, comparing GTX 780 OC'ed to about 1200MHz boost clock(I suppose you can call it below average for a B1 chip) to GTX 970 OC to 1400-1500MHz boost clock?

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    It downclocks on 144hz only for people with one monitor plugged in. I actually asked about it a while back on blurbusters. You can read about it here. Doubt NVIDIA is going to fix it: II am using powerstrip to change between 121hz/144hz on my VG278HE. All fullscreen games force...

    Does it matter if you get more than 60fps on a 60Hz monitor?

    it also reduces input lag in most games.

    The Best GAMING Monitor at this moment

    Well it is a great deal in the US but in most UE countries you have to add 23%VAT and 14% duty. Plus all the hassle with the warranty.. and shipment of the monitor to Korea would cost me at least 30$ afair. Also I can deduct the tax on electronics bought in my country. All in all, I bought...

    Asus 780 DirectCuII high temperatures?

    Looks fine. I am getting up to 70c/70% fan speed with stock bios, 1.2V core and ~1225 clock (can't remember exactly)

    Asus R9 290 DirectCUII Review

    1220 core. yeh... my reference R9 290(@290X) was stable at 1025/1300 on stock voltage and maybe 1080 core with max voltage. it was way too loud for overvolting though now I'm a happy Asus DirectCu II 780@1254/1600 user

    780 GTX overclock results

    after over a week of testing in multiple games/benchmarks, I think my Asus DirectCu II @ 1241/1675 is stable. I've tried skyn3t bios but stock gave better memory results and it was 2-3c cooler. I am getting about 70c@GPU/85c@VRM absolutely max (long gaming period with 100% load, closed case...

    Upgrade or not, if so to which Gpu?

    well, for 60hz/1080p 770/280x is somewhat enough, but on maxed settings it will still dip to 40 fps in demanding games while 780 should keep it much closer to 60. i believe that overclocked GTX 780 or non reference R9 290 (tri-x!) have pretty good performance per dollar

    Buy now or wait 3-4 months for Maxwell?

    I see no reason to wait if you can grab GTX780 in affordable price. Unless you want to wait nearly a year for Maxwell which is probably going to be only slightly better

    Slight Buyers Remorse (from 780 to 290)

    Well if you bought it for 400$ then you should be able to resell it with a profit I think? I am not too farmiliar with other markets' pricing I live in Poland. No special deals on cpu/motherboard unfortunately, but it isn't really that expensive. Good thing is that I won't have to buy another...

    Slight Buyers Remorse (from 780 to 290)

    You have no idea how loud 290 is @100%... I have sold my R9 290 (@290x 1025/1250 - unlocked, but awful overclocker) with a profit and bought Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II. Awesome card, running 1256/1652 since day1. Significantly faster than the AMD card, mainly because I have a weak CPU...

    780 ti or 290x....or just wait for 800 series?

    Get 780 and OC it. I have sold my R9 290 @ 290x 1025/1250. Even though I had 82% ASIC, it was an awful overclocker. At least it unlocked and I made a nice profit on it. Pretty much traded it for a new Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II which is running @ 1263/1650 AFAIR. It is much faster btw, but it...

    G-Sync First Impressions from TR Forums

    Wait, so does G-Sync improve smoothness in 40-60FPS range? It simply has to stay above 30FPS to work, right?

    GTX 780 OC vs R9 290 OC

    I have a R9 290 @ R9 290X. 81% ASIC meaning low voltages and temperatures which is nice. But it still runs loud and overclocks really, really badly (1030/1250 @ stock voltages, after that it is simply not worth it) I am trying to sell it. Don't get me wrong, it is a good card. Prices of...

    Question about 144Hz monitors. Are they worth an upgrade?

    I am wondering, when can we expect VG278HE bundled with G-Sync?

    r290 Black Screen Issue

    Gigabyte R9 290 @ R9 290(X) ASUS bios 1030/1250. Elpida memory. I only get it if I overclock memory too high. I simply don't overclock the memory clock at all.

    Ikea desk gallery

    Hey. I kinda need a new desk and I really thought it is going to be Galant, but my initial impression was dissapointing when I was passing by Ikea last weekend... It swayed easily, bent under mediocre pressure. And this was a 160x80cm desk on T legs. I'm more interested in 200x80cm which I...

    R9 290 monitor goes to sleep while gaming

    This is a known issue of R9 290. In my case I had frequent black screens when overclocking the memory clocks, so maybe try underclocking yours a bit.

    270x vs 280x LTC Value Question

    NoNRG try to decrease your clock to 1025-1040. Max the power limit too spacin9 try 870/1250 clocks. R9 290(X) likes to work pretty much only in two combinations (the other is 1050/1500 or something like that), with slight core clock variations. If you are getting rejects mb drop your...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    For about a week I had a Gigabyte R9 280X crossfired with MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3 (I have sold both cards with a profit and bought a R9 290) They were running super hot when gigabyte was on top - it reached quickly 90c on 100% fan speed. It was much better when I swapped cards (AFAIR something...

    Eizo Foris FG2421: 120hz VA Panel

    Damn, looks unusable (at least for me) Now I'm wondering - does EIZO replace such panels? Or they consider it as 'normal'?
