    Fallout 4 at 1080p with a GTX 470?

    I just found this FO4 benchmark: Being that my GTX 470 is really close in performance to the GTX 750ti, it may be doable afterall.

    Fallout 4 at 1080p with a GTX 470?

    Seems like I should probably wait until next year when I upgrade my gpu. As someone else mentioned, If I pick it up during the Steam summer sale I should have a new gpu by then. Thank you to all that responded.

    Fallout 4 at 1080p with a GTX 470?

    I really would like to get FO4 but I am thinking I would have to turn down way too many settings with my GTX 470 (rest of my specs should be fine though). Anybody try this game with a GTX 470? I know my card is old and I planned on upgrading around this time but decided this summer to put...

    After a few weeks of Lollipop--LolliPOOP!

    Make sure Encryption isn't enabled. If it is, disable it and the phone should run better/faster.

    Win 7 Pro 64bit: what is using up all of my drive space?

    I appreciate all info so tomorrow I am going to sit down and try/look at these things.

    After a few weeks of Lollipop--LolliPOOP!

    Back in November I manually did a clean install using the factory images provided by Google for my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 and I have to say they have been running flawlessly. The reason that I did a clean install (and with Nexus devices I have that option fortunately) was that I read that many...

    Win 7 Pro 64bit: what is using up all of my drive space?

    I have a laptop with a 128gb SSD. I already deleted the recovery partition and added that disk space to my C drive. C drive is 110gb (there is also an 8gb Hibernate partition, although I only have 4gb of RAM which I thought was strange). All that is installed on this laptop is Windows, and MS...

    Can I install Android on a Samsung Win8 sm-w750v phone?

    Long story short, my boss last year wanted that Samsung Windows phone. Yesterday he informed me he is done with Windows phone and had me swap it out for an Iphone 6. So now sitting in my pile of spare phones (I work in I.T.) I have this Samsung Windows 8 phone that is basically a Samsung S4...

    A warning about MSI and its graphics cards

    I had the same thing happen years ago with a MSI 8600GTS. I ended up replacing it with a EVGA GTX 260FTW card that I ran in the same system for four years with no other hardware changes and never had any more problems.

    MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING Video Card Review

    As a pure gaming video card I see no longevity for this card at all. You might get two years out of it if you either game at resolutions below 1080p or are willing to turn down a lot of settings. Very disappointing. Looks like I will be waiting for the refresh of cards before I upgrade my GTX...

    My apologies, I meant to post in the Dark Souls thread and after reading the posts realized I posted in DS2 thread.

    Dark Souls 2 PC - April 25, 2014

    I should ad that when I first started playing I would seem more summon signs but every time I tried to summon it failed. I am now using DSCfix and I rarely see a summon sign, but once I was able to summon another player (not an NPC).

    Dark Souls 2 PC - April 25, 2014

    I played this game a lot on the ps3 and always found lots of summon signs and could be summoned very quickly. I re bought this game for the pc recently. One thing I am noticing is that I have never once been summoned, and it's pretty rare that I see summon signs. Granted, I am only SL 27...

    GTX 960 disrobed and clothed.

    I am disappointed, I was planning on buying a GTX 960 but not when it is probably gimped this bad. Based on this info, if true, this should have been the GTX 950ti or something. I hope the GTX 965ti rumor is true, and if it's not I guess I will wait for the refresh.

    What gaming video card lasted you the longest ?

    My GTX 470 that I am still using. I really need a new card but if the rumors of the GTX 960 are true I will be waiting another year I guess.

    Best 1080p Chromebook?

    The Chromebook Pixel is way more than I am willing to spend on a Chromebook. I am sure it is a beast but I am looking more in the $300 range. In the meantime I created my own "Chromebook" using Chromium Lime. The issue that I am having with it, it works perfectly though, is that I used a 3...

    Best 1080p Chromebook?

    I really want to give the Chrome OS a try. I am so used to 1080p or higher on almost all of my devices that I am not sure a 1366x768 display would do it for me. From what I have read I would want 4gb of RAM, 16GB SSD is fine. I would want something with a 13" to 14" display. I am concerned...

    Win7 Pro: what is the best way to delete deleted files?

    Is there a command in Windows 7 that would force TRIM to manually run? I know how to enable/disable TRIM, I just can't figure out if there is a way to force it to clean everything out.

    Win7 Pro: what is the best way to delete deleted files?

    On one of the laptops I tried the sdelete command. I then ran Recuva and most of the deleted files were still recoverable.

    Win7 Pro: what is the best way to delete deleted files?

    At this point, most of our computers use SSD's (all new computers we buy are SSD only). Is there a program out there that you would recommend that would run TRIM on demand?

    Win7 Pro: what is the best way to delete deleted files?

    For both work (I work in IT) and for personal use I am surprised at how many deleted files from someone's computer can be easily recovered. It has gotten me thinking, how can deleted files be truly deleted without physically damaging a drive? I know there are programs out there that will...

    gtx 470...what to upgrade to?

    If you are going to wait and save up money anyways, the GTX 960 should be out soon (hopefully). That's what I plan to upgrade to, coming from a GTX 470 also.

    GTX 960 Release Imminent

    As long as it is $199 and has 4gb and 256bit, I will probably buy one to replace my GTX 470. If not, I will wait for the refresh. However, part of me is trying to wait out for the refresh since this is the last video card I will buy for my current system so I want it to last awhile.

    Why no love for LG G3?

    I have had a lot of phones over the last three years and have had the G3 since launch. I think it is the best phone available today. I haven't really found any flaws in it. Big screen and yet the size of the phone is the same as a mid size phone. Super clear screen, pleasant UI to look at...

    NVIDIA to launch its GeForce GTX 880 next month, at under $500

    Why? Because of the lack of going lower in the manufacturing process? The 660 was pretty close to the 580, and we saw the same thing I previous gens. That's why I said that. Do you thing they hit a brick wall this time around?

    NVIDIA to launch its GeForce GTX 880 next month, at under $500

    If history repeats it's self, the equivalent of the GTX 780 now at $500 should be in the $200-$300 range when released......aka the 860. That's what I am waiting for.

    Windows 9 and DirectX 12?

    They better include it in 8.1 or all the more reason as a gamer and tech junkie I will not support MS any more. Ever since Gates left they have seemed to me like they are anti customer. I sure hope the new guy changes that. If not Sony, Google and Apple can have my money.

    LG3 photos rumor

    I had a Samsung S3 for 18 months, then a Note 2 for the last 10 months (and occasionally switched back and forth between the two phones). Prior to that I had the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and iphone 4s, both for only 3 months each. I got my LG G3 at 9am this morning and spent pretty much the...

    GTX 880 and 800 Series to be More Powerful But Cheaper than the 700 Series

    I just want to see some new Nvidia cards soon. My GTX 470 has served me well but it is beyond time to upgrade it, I just can't see buying any of the current cards out right now since the new ones are coming this year...eventually.

    Is Samsung becoming Apple

    I totally agree. I had the Samsung S3 and it performed ok, but then I got the Note 2 and it is very sluggish. I work in IT so I get to configure the iphone 5s phones every day, and have an Ipad Air and Nexus 7 at home, as well as occasionally use my wife's Kindle Fire HDX 7". They all run...

    The Nexus device program isn't going away

    I was extremely relieved when I heard this. I love stock Android and my Nexus 7. If I didn't have a work provided phone I would get a Nexus phone as well. Without all the bloatware, plain Android is fantastic and fast. I hope we see more stock/Vanilla android devices out there in the coming...

    Tf700T Stock, Super Laggy/useless, Is CM way to go?

    I too have the tf700t and am beyond disgusted with it. From what I have read CROMi-X seems to be the best way to go (granted it still won't perform like a Nexus 7 lol). I was going to try CROMi-X but then just decided to give the tablet to my 7 year old. He only uses the youtube app on it...

    Core i7 4790K, 4690K, and unlocked Pentiums appear for pre-order on various websites

    Ever since I put together my i5-3570k system for gaming I really haven't paid attention to cpu's. Just came in here today out of boredom. Why are they releasing such high clocked chips now? Why didn't they release any chips with clocks like this for Ivy Bridge? Is it because they know they...

    Could be this true?.. GTX 880 rumored details

    That's what I was thinking also. 256-bit bus? Maybe for the GTX 860 or 850, definitely not for the GTX 880. Heck, GTX 860 should be close to what the GTX 780 is.

    Dark Souls 2 PC - April 25, 2014

    I played Demon's and Dark Souls on the ps3 and never played online and it worked just fine. I just turned off the wifi on the ps3. I wanted the single player experience and didn't want to deal with being invaded.

    What video card has served you the longest before upgrading?

    Surprisingly my 470 has always run cooler than the 260. Both have stock coolers. Both were used in the same computer case as well, granted the 470 runs at stock speeds and the 260 was the over clocked FTW edition.

    What video card has served you the longest before upgrading?

    My GTX 470. It's still doing ok at 1080p, but I can't wait for next gen Nvidia cards to be released. Edit: don't know if it counts, but I bought a GTX 260 right after release and used it for two and a half years. It is still in use in my son's pc.

    Dear Apple. Step 1, please take everyone who wrote itunes, and shoot them.

    For as much as I like using iOS and OSx, and how easy they are to use, I absolutely HATE iTunes. I only need to use iTunes once every few months and every time I do I am frustrated beyond belief because nothing is simple nor works like you think it should work. That alone is my reason why I...
