    Anyone have a IPT invite I could get? was away for 6 months and unable to login and lost my long term account with about 2tb surplus upload credit... *sigh* oh well. Don't have anything to offer in return right now, but don't have to worry about me being a bad upload/download ratio guy. Thanks.

    Sticking with my 1080 Ti, early benches only show 25% improvement at 4k so far. Waiting until at least the next generation after this.

    Segway Drift W1 Self Balancing Roller Skates Are Available for Preorder

    Did you even watch the video? He was gushing about them the entire time saying how easy it was to pickup right away and pretty intuitive, the only thing he said was "scary" was going over a bump at first...

    According to wccftech it is, Personally I'm waiting for Icelake since that is supposed to have some meltdown/spectre fixes and be a new architecture to boot.

    Is buying an Nvidia GPU today a bit foolish, if Volta is (said to be) coming soon?

    I'm afraid that even when Volta launches prices are still going to be what they are now or possibly worse. Nvidia came out the last few days and said that gpu prices will remain high and be even higher through Q3 2018. Lots of articles on it...

    Intel 10nm/7nm CPU/GPU Rumor Thread : Cannonlake, Icelake, Tigerlake, Sapphire Rapids, etc.

    I thought Ice Lake was going to be a new architecture, if Tiger Lake is after that, wouldn't it just be a refresh/process tweak of that instead of something more significant? I thought Ice Lake is the new big change coming up.

    Soul Calibur 6 coming to Xbox One/PS4/PC in 2018

    2018 should be pretty good for fighter games. I'm hoping the Dragonball Z Fighter Z coming out late Jan. will get some interest back in 2d fighters. Maybe help introduce the style so Soul Caliber 6 will have some more interest when it comes out, although fighting style will be quite different I...

    Low watt processor with decent performance?

    Did you read his post? He says it runs 24/7 and that he's in a higher KW/hr place. 4 cents?!?! who the hell pays that? I'm in WI and pay 13.8 cents, I'll assume he lives in a even higher state and just say 15 cents a kw/h. A few posts down he says its idle'ing at 200 watts, thats $20.16 at 15...

    Monoprice Not Keeping Word on Warranty

    Wow. Leave that shit for reddit and 4can, jesus. Yeah you are acting like a little bitch, what is so hard to understand about reading the terms of warranty and replacement. Oh it's too difficult? Just gotta throw a temper tantrum to screw someone else because you want to renege on it 8 months...

    i7-7700k $299 @ Amazon

    7700k just came out this year, not long its really mature... The motherboards are pretty much copy paste's of those since like you said, its still the same thing as the kaby lake boards, which were exactly the same as skylake before it...

    Had my Rift + Touch now for a few days.....

    I think I know what you're getting at. I experienced something a little similar when I first tried out Coumpound Demo. Using the thumbsticks to move around in that game was giving me a dizzying feel if I moved too fast, which I just assumed I was starting to feel motion sickness. Moving around...

    Are you happy with your Pascal investment?

    Upgraded from Fury X/970 to 1080 Ti, definitely satisfied with the performance upgrade. Even at 1080p. Currently have it hooked up to my living room tv which is only 1080p instead of office room with 4k Freesync monitor, but I setup my Oculus rift in there. Makes VR so much better than the...

    Decent affordable head set..

    That looks like its pretty much just a Samsung Gear VR. I'd look at the Piimax 4k headset for a decent affordable one. I'd think the higher resolution screen would be preferably for just movie watching or fapping material.

    Disabled SPUD on oculus and quality improved a lot

    I haven't done much testing between the 2, pretty much have set it and forget it so far. When I get some time in the next week I'll try to do a few comparisons on and off in a few applications. I don't have a decent camera though. On a dumb phone until my G4 gets repaired and sent back. When...

    Disabled SPUD on oculus and quality improved a lot

    I did this and notice a difference. It's a bit sharper/more clarity overall, but the SDE seems a little more noticeable. Some of the soft glow seems better too but yeah a some extra glare with direct lights.

    Player unknown Battlegrounds

    I picked this up a few days ago and have been enjoying it quite a bit. Mostly been playing solo so far, the few squad games I joined were all terrible teams that didn't speak english 80% of the time. Sent you a friend request, Nekronic is my steamid.

    Need help from someone with a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti

    The game doesn't care what gpu you have, would have to lookup benchmarks to see how it runs. If you buy a cheaper nvidia code you have to have someone with a 1080 or 1080ti activate it on their system with your bnet account though. Instructions on redemption from nvidia. So trust someone you...

    Need help from someone with a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti

    It should just be a 1 time check when you register the game, not every time you load it up. So OP is looking for someone with a 1080 or 1080 Ti that will not be buying Destiny 2 at all and will activate the code for them on their account/new one. Edit: To clarify, it logs the hardware id of...

    Recent(terrible) customer support experience with ASUS

    Yup never buy anything Asus unless it's half the cost of the next company for that part and you really don't want to wait, or if its cheapest and you feel like gambling on not having to replace it ever. I had an Asus 7970 that they sent back to me 3 times before ending up giving me a...

    how to get the most out of my 290x

    I get 27.5 - 28.5 on my 290x at 1000mhz, msi lightning model. 30.5 on my FuryX. Try switching miners? I'm using Claymore. Try a different driver version, a lot of places recommend 15.12 for best.

    Steam Direct Fee Announced

    I think he understood the topic. I don't see how this is going to help clean up the shovelware really. Now all that needs to be done to get on steam is pay $100 for the game and it's on there. Sure before it was just $100 for the dev and not per game, then just listing it multiple times if it...

    OFFICIAL : GTX 970 SETTLEMENT check thread

    The people claiming that many are likely system builders for people in their area. 970 was a popular card to toss in mid budget gaming rigs.In metro areas, I'm sure it wasn't very hard for more than a few builders to have access to lots of gpu's to claim.

    First Impressions of the Dell UP3218K "8K" Monitor

    Your first question was asked by someone 2 posts up from yours... Watch the Linus video a few mins in and he talks about that issue and demonstrating its not present, then talks about cables and video cards required. It's a short video, just watch what Pendragon posted.

    Steam Hardware Survey updated with GPUs

    Well if they don't, there's no way for it to be accurate! And because there's no one else like me and my friends the whole data point is fundamentally fucked!!! /s I've gotten a poll probably half a dozen times at least in the last 10 years. At least 2 or 3 times in the last year or 2, most...

    Oculus Touch price drop feels like I have been scammed...

    Here's a blast from the past, Iphone users upset over a $200 price drop after 2 months (33%, but item cost is way higher so similar enough). VR is going to be like phones, every 2-3 years there will be a big upgrade from the major...

    Oculus Touch price drop feels like I have been scammed...

    Radeon RX Vega Discussion Thread

    Still too early for reviewers to have in hand I believe. Brent's been awol working on a pretty big review, I remember seeing Kyle make some posts on all the systems he was sending out to Brent.

    Mass Effect: Andromeda

    I thought the same too until I noticed the little nuances of the system. The timer for the research points only ticks down during gameplay, menu time pauses it. It won't stockpile additional research so you have to go back and claim it every 30-45 mins depending on what your timer is. So you can...

    Do you think we will ever see a Half-Life 3?

    Because crapping out 30% money off others games is a shitload more than making your own. Why tarnish the steam image on something that can't possibly live up to the height, might fuck with their bread and butter. Is probably some thought in the back of Gabe's mind that just won't allow him to...
