    What's bottlenecking me most in Heroes of the Storm?

    Make sure v-sync is disabled, I don't see a bottleneck anywhere from the specs, it could be the CPU but not sure, are you running stock clocks?

    Battlefield Hardline won't repeat BF4's Mistakes

    For me it wasn't about the game feeling dated, it was avatar movement and gun handling, something that Battlefield had always struggled with but made it a priority to improve on since BF3. Hardline on the other hand is a step back on these improvements and enough for me to pass on it, which is a...

    Dragon Age Inquisition benchmarks.

    Does it have an in-game res scaler like BF4? just curious since they're both running on Frostibite.

    HELP: 290 stuck at 150 mhz memory clock under load.

    Hey Guys, So I just got a second 290 for CF, it was a used mining card, everything seems to be running ok except I noticed that both on CCC and Afterburner the second card reads at 150mhz memory clock, the first card shows the default 1250mhz. I know miners change settings in order to save on...

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    Do NOT fall for the screenshots, every single COD released in the past 5 years looked great on stills and dated on actual footage, this is no different. Activision needed to have it's COD studios transition into a new engine for this release and the fact that they havent done so just shows how...

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    I was not monitoring the actual temps, but BF4 is the only game that actually stressed the card, I played Diablo 3 for hours without a hicup then BF4 gets the black screen, I am not 100% about changing the max temp, but activating overdrive on catalyst fixed that issue, before turning overdrive...

    AMD Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire Video Card Review @ [H]

    This is probably why nvidia declined: Also, pretty surprised to see AMD would not see the vram limitations ahead of time with that much horsepower.

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    You mean a problem it took me all of 5 minutes to fix? I'm not even trying to defend AMD, these types of problems shouldn't be happening, but I had a very similar fan profile problem with my nvidia cards, plus the god awful nvlddmkm.sys problem that went on for what it seemed like forever, so...

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    BF4 black screen lock fix. I just got a 290 on Friday and this started happening on a fresh driver install. It seems that the fan profile is not adapting to higher temperatures under load, IE fan speed is constant no matter how hot it gets. I fixed it by going into catalyst and turning on...

    Logitech G430 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - $40

    Tiamats have awful sound quailty, even for gaming headsets which are not known for it. I bought a pair after reading good reviews about them to replace my worn out 930's. Ended up returning them in 3 days and getting the 430s instead, boomy bass and distortion on highs and lows, and Im the type...

    Logitech G430 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - $40 + FS

    I've been using them for a couple of months now, they are very good. I got this after I worn out my G930's. For this price they are a steal, well worth the money. Build quality is decent, nice cords and great ear pads, much better than the ones on the more expensive 930. Havent had any...

    Only speaking from my personal experience since I actually bought it from the link I posted. Mine came in with with 1 dead pixel that I can only spot against a white background and very minor backlight bleed from the bottom right off the center. Now, from what I read I got it better than most...

    AMD R9 290X Hits $900 On Newegg. Thanks *coin

    Steve, would asking for all R9 290(X) card reviews to be revised due to the pricing disparity be viable? Every single glowing review of these cards, reference or otherwise had a very big advantage over the nvidia alternative, and that was price. $399 and $549 MSRP while still officialy AMD's...

    only reason they are now at 699 is because they are reference coolers, once they get more AIB cards back in stock watch the prices rise again.

    Every review site out there that gave these cards a "best bang for buck" and near perfect score needs to adjust accordingly, otherwise it's just downright misleading.

    QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll 27" 1440p $289 on Ebay Free Shipping

    Just hooked it up, monitor looks great, only 1 dead pixel, won't be overclocking it until I get my 290 upgrade, no need to when I dont have the horse power yet to push it, currently running GTX460 SLI, couldn't be happier.

    QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll 27" 1440p $289 on Ebay Free Shipping

    TN panels, specially gaming ones should always outperform IPS ones when it comes to response times, the tradeoff is IQ, pick your poison. IMO these Korean panels are a good meeting point for both IQ and speed.

    QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll 27" 1440p $289 on Ebay Free Shipping

    All of these panels are a risk whether pixel perfect or not, for me, this is a transitional upgrade until 4k monitors become affordable, IPS ones at that, and for $289 its a no brainer really. Anyone jumping in on this should have already done their reasearch and taken risk into account.
