    X470 Taicji question

    It seems to be running just fine with just the 8-pin connected. I'm not OCing. So needing any 'extra" power shouldn't be a concern.

    Rebuild considering AMD

    For roughly $200.00 less (which you could use for other upgrades if you wish) you could go with this: http://www.microcenter.com/product/5001846/AMD_Ryzen_7_2700X_with_Wraith_Prism_Cooler,_ASRock_X470_Taichi_CPU-Motherboard_Bundle This would be a very solid system and do everything you want to...

    ComputerBase 4K HDR Testing Shows Performance Loss for AMD and NVIDIA

    A number of years back, NVidia had the same problem when you turned on AA. They bragged about how much faster they were than the ATI cards, but when reviewers turned on AA, the ATI card kicked their butts.

    X470 Taicji question

    My X370 Taichi MB went tits up, and rather than waiting for the RMA process, I decided to just get a new MB and RMA later. While looking, I noticed that the X470 was not all that much more $$ than the X370 so I decided that I'd go with the X470 since it would be a bit of an upgrade. I'll be...

    AMD clarifies a bit more FreeSync 2 HDR (DisplayHDR 600) certification

    Freesync 2 and HDR was made available in FC5 with the 1.7 patch on July 16. This must be an update of that.

    Or, you can go to the map, zoom all the way out, and when you put the cursor over each region, it will give you all of your stats in that region.

    no video signal to monitor

    Sounds like you have eliminated everything except the monitor. Have you tried the monitor on a different system?

    Far Cry 5

    No. It's on the main menu screen under options/video. However, you do need a monitor that supports HDR. I found out the FREESYNC 2 support was added in the 1.07 patch/update which was released on Jun 16. So, it wasn't available when I first tried enabling HDR on Jun 9, so I didn't miss...

    Far Cry 5

    I know that it's been awhile, but here's an update. Just after my last post I enabled HDR. I used the HDR10 option. I was not impressed. In fact it was worse that standard as text on builds was 'corrupted' and it jus looked horrible. I didn;t even bother to travel though the map to see if...

    Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.6.1 Drivers Released

    Wait just a cotton pickin minute! You have a laptop. On the AMD driver site it SPECIFICALLY states that the drivers there are NOT for laptops, and to check your laptop vender's site for drivers. You install the drivers, have problems and somehow it's AMD's fault? You Sir, need to turn your...

    Far Cry 5

    Ok gentlemen, I need some input. I just got a Samsung C27HG70 monitor (2560 x 1440, 144Hz). When I was changing the settings for the new resolution, I saw that HDR is now an option. So, my question is: Is turning on HDR worth it in FC5, or am I better off not enabling it? ETA: I'm running...

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    Thanks for the helpful info. I found the outside dimensions of the 31.5" and made a cardboard cut out. It's just too danged big for the amount of desk space I have, so.... As soon as I finish posting this, I'm off the "The Egg" to order the 27"

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    If it was HUNDREDS of people having issues, you might have a point. However this is just another isolated incident. No one expects every monitor, CUP, PSU, etc. to be perfect when leaving the factory. The are made by man and sometimes not all components will work well together. I know your...

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    Maybe so, but what I can find by searching the net, it's not endemic to the C27HG70 and/or C32HG70. In fact all I could find was a handful of people (less then 10) that had any issues, Methinks that you are making a mountain out of a piece of fly poop.

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    This is the first time I've heard of DSE. Did some searching and found that it happens across a wide range of monitors of various manufacturers. Sounds like a non-issue to me, especially since it mostly happens in very specific conditions.

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    I'm giving some serious thoughts of upgrading from my Samsung C27F398, 1080/60Hz. I'm looking at the Samsung C27HG70, and C32HG70, 1440/144Hz. Specs on the two are identical except for the size, and I'm wondering if it's worth an extra $100.00 to go with the larger monitor? Going to the...

    When are the new "secure" processors coming out?

    I've been out and about and forgot to check this thread. My question wasn't 'which CPUs are vulnerable. Shucks everyone and his brother knows that by now. My question is how many of these 'vulnerable' processors been actually attacked and compromised? By that I also mean 'In the wild', not...

    How large is your system SSD?

    For me it all depends on which partition I boot to. I use HyperOS which allows me to have multiple installs of an OS. I have a 1 TB SSD which is partitioned into 4 partitions. Partition 1 = 120 GB has a Basic Win 7 install. Just the basic install and hardware drivers. Fall back partition if I...

    Far Cry 5

    Finally got a chance to confirm something that I thought might be possible. After doing the quest where you have to back the pickup up to trailer and then pull it out to get to the bunker, I said to myself, "Self, I wonder if it's possible to hookup to one of the reaper trailers?" Well, last...

    Ran into something interesting the other night. I was fishing near an offshore island, and a couple of ducks cane swimming from the island. Just for shits and giggles, I decided to take a shot at one with the .50 cal. sniper rifle. When I zoomed in on that rascal, I could clearly see his...

    Updates to phone.

    OK, I'm fairly new to this whole smart phone thing. I was happy with my old dumb ass phone, and only changed because it died, and I had no choice. I use Tracfone as I don't really use a cell phone that much anyway, and it's the most economical service for me. Anyway, I purchased a Samsung...

    Well, that went better than I thought it would. Did the D/L. Started the game. and hit CONTINUR. Everything was just as it was before the crash. All of my keyboard and mouse settings were unchanged. That was important because I use the arrow keys for moving around and I've reassigned a lot...

    Damn, damn, damn! :mad: Game crashed HARD. Not just to desk top, but to a re-boot!. After the re-boot I tried starting it again and I got a Steam popup saying that the game wasn't installed. I looked at the FC5 folders in Steam Apps, and there were still files there, so I was really puzzled...

    I had a terrible time doing that one at first because after I killed the driver, the truck would blowup before I could get to it and repair it so I could get it back to Falls End. I was using the AK 47 to kill the driver but it was causing too much damage to the truck. I finally got smart and...

    NVIDIA GPP: Meet ASUS AREZ Radeon Series

    As a matter of fact NVidia IS pretty much forcing them into the GPP program. From Kyle's original article: So, if they refuse to join GPP they will lose a lot of funding. They can't afford NOT to join. And, then there is this: Sure sounds like an "offer you can't refuse" to me.

    NVIDIA GPP: Meet ASUS AREZ Radeon Series

    What the nGreedia fanboys are failing to see is the if/when AMD is forced out of the GPU market, video card development will virtually cease. After all, why spend money developing new features, etc. when you are the only one selling cards?

    NVIDIA GPP: Meet ASUS AREZ Radeon Series

    BULLSHIT! If some one put you in front of two identical high end systems, whose only difference is that one has a 1080Ti and the other has a Vega 64, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference while playing most games. I'm tired of this old " it gives 5 FPS less in a game so it's junk and...
