    DT 990 Premium w/ModMic vs ATH AG1

    I currently have the DT990 Premium setup with the ModMic 4.0 and I've been itching to try more of an all in one headset. Also something closed back so I get less background noise. I've heard great things about the ATH AG1 and I found a set for around $150 practically brand new. Anyone with ATH...

    How to get live mic monitoring?

    My current setup is DT-990 Premiums with a ModMic 4.0 and the Asus Essence STX sound card. I'm on Windows 10. Windows has a "listen to this device feature" but it is basically an open mic that plays back through your headset and it has noticeable latency. Is there a sound card that can do live...

    BenQ XL2411Z

    For anyone that has this monitor what do you think of it? I am looking for a 144Hz monitor for my LAN center and this seems to be the best option out there. I don't want the Asus. Owned one before and the PWM flicker strained the eyes way to much to even consider it. GSYNC the PWM flicker though...

    PC Gaming Lounge Business

    I'm thinking of starting a local gaming lounge. I will have mainly PC's but a few Xbox One's and PS4's. My biggest question is how will I regulate game time? I'd rather it be software based rather than someone coming around to the people that have run out of time and telling them they are...

    Doom

    So for those of you that saw the Bethesda stream on Twitch what did you think? IMO it was a little disappointing. I was expecting more of a horror based game. From what I remember of Doom 3 when I last played it (2004/05) it was way more scary. Remember when the game first came out you...

    5850m vs 6990m

    I'm thinking about upgrading my Alienware's GPU to a 6990m but was curious if it was worth the $350 upgrade? I don't expect performance to double but a 50% boost would make it worth my time I think. Anyone do this upgrade if so how was the performance gain? Thanks!

    What kind of OC's can we expect with a watercooled 480?

    Maybe too early to tell since most people that ordered them haven't even received them yet. I have 2 480's incoming but I haven't ordered waterblocks for them yet. I was wondering how far we can take the speeds on the stock cooler? I have pretty good case ventilation and the bottom most card...

    Games lock up with 5970's in Crossfire X

    Alright so I got another 5970 to do some benchmarking. My primary card is an Asus 5970 that's around 3-4 months old and is watercooled if that makes a difference. Picked up a PowerColor 5970 last week from newegg. It's air cooled still. Ever since I added it I can't play any games that...

    How is 5970 crossfire X now with the 10.3's?

    I'm currently running the 10.3a drivers and awaiting my second 5970. Wondering if I should've bought a 5870 since scaling for the 4 gpu really isn't there. I was looking at some old benchmarks but figured the new drivers would've helped some.

    Need some input on reworking my WC setup...

    Ok so currently I'm running a single loop with only a 2.120 swiftech radiator that I got when I bought the swiftech kit about 4-5 years ago. This is my current setup. I figure I can fit 3.120 rad on the bottom of the case without moving the pump. I could probably fit a 4.120 down there just by...
