    New Monitor: Lines Aren't Parallel Or Am I Imagining Things?

    I believe I am seeing a weird scenario where my left of my screen looks further away, The tool bar on the right looks bigger. Even if I tilt the screen way to the right it still is weird.

    Is DLSS The Real Deal?

    If it is, then I don't see how AMD can catch up. Is up scaling resolutions the future? Where do we go from here if Nvidia can double its performance with this trick?

    Rendering Anxiety From the 90s Can I multitask At Same Time?

    I have these memories of using render and cd burning software in the 90s and If I used the computer for anything else while it was rendering, even to the point where I let a screen saver activate, It could cause errors and artifacts in the final product. Even to this day I feel a little weird...

    PSA: Check Your Ram Settings Even If You Don't OC

    I just built a New Ryzen System. I would get random BSOD's until I found out that the motherboard had incorrectly set my memory to the wrong frequency and voltage. If you have BSOD's, it's worth it to check memory settings. It's also a good idea to check before you buy that your ram is on the...

    It's a weird time for power supplies

    All the big names associated with reliability now have lower tier products with inferior components. If you go into newegg reviews you will see around a 10 percent failure rate with almost every brand. (among comments not true failure rate). I've used several cheapo power supplies without much...

    How Bad Cable Management Saved My PC

    Long ago in the era of single core cpus, I built my first PC. An AMD Athlon xp 2500+. These things were notorious overclockers due to that barton core. One day I got some fast food and left my soda cup on top of the pc case. Well it turns out I was going to Vegas for the weekend and when I came...

    Bought a Ref 5700xt: Underclock if too loud?

    My card hasn't arrived yet (waiting is hard lol). I know blowers are loud, but @ $350 I thought if it's really that loud I could underclock it and tame the fanspeeds a bit. Any thoughts about underclocking/undervolting? Or can most of the noise and thermal issues be handled without messing with...

    Will We Soon Enter A New Era of 1080p Budget Gaming?

    With the push for 4k it seems like there will be a turning point in the near future where 1080p gamers will be able to game on very cheap cards @60-100fps. Imagine a 50-100 dollar card easily handling AAA modern games @1080p. Or am I overly optimistic? My thinking is the higher resolution you...

    RX 470 4gb For 150 Bucks: To Good To Be True?

    So I recently bought a seller refurbished RX 470 on EBAY for 150 bucks. It was going for 300, but the seller had a "or best offer" option, so I decided to put a best offer of "150" which in my mind I would only buy such a card around original MSRP or maybe a tad more. Now my worry is that since...
