    Nvidia settles GTX970 false advertising lawsuit.

    The gift that keeps on giving...I already got The Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, and MGSV for free with my GTX970

    Games that could have been amazing!...buuut sucked?

    Completely agree with you on MGSV. Also, Kiefer Sutherland barely had any lines making it awkward watching cutscenes where Snake wouldn't say a single word.

    sweeeeeet!!! Bought my gtx970 back in April when they were only giving away The Witcher 3. When they started giving away Batman I asked for a code and they gave one to me. Now I asked them to give me MGS V as a replacement for Batman being so buggy and they just gave me a code.

    win10 extra click to open desktop icons

    So i just upgraded to Win10 from Win7 and noticed I have to click an extra time (3 clicks) to open desktop icons if I'm browsing in a different window. This is extremely annoying. Is this supposed to happen in Win10? For example: I'm using Google Chrome and it's the active window, if I want...

    So many 970 models, which one to get?

    Top rated cards are the Gigabyte G1 ($320) or MSI Gaming ($320) (MSI Gaming 100me is the same but has a backplate for $5 more). EVGA ssc acs 2.0+ is pretty good too. Newegg has it on sale right now for $320 (it was $5 cheaper last week) and includes a free backplate and The Witcher 3.

    Upgrading options?

    Most of the gtx460's on ebay are going for at least $50. I suppose I can get an i5 bundle and stick to my single gtx460. I'll then save up for a bit and sell my gtx460 toward a better video card. Just trying to make up my mind since it's tax free weekend tomorrow and I might head over to...

    BF3 Beta Crushed my dreams...GFX upgrade time.

    My GTX460 runs @1920x1080 on medium with 60FPS. On high I get anywhere between 30-60. So anything above a 460 will do.
