I'm just shocked that despite the obvious issue with being bottlenecked, the old dog put up close to 9300 on 3dmark11.
When I finally put together my 6700K system, it will be nice to see that score skyrocket.
Say what you will. But I only play one game right now and it has taken my fps from 50's to 120's at the same settings.
At maxed settings I used to run in the low 20's fps and now it is running at 50-60 fps.
The plan is to shift the R9 back into this system once I build my new one later this...
Is anyone pairing an older CPU to their newly purchased 1070 or 1080 GTX than in my case? (Q9550 from 2010)
My system was built in 2007 and the motherboard is just as old. I started out with the Nvidia 8800 for 4 years before jumping over to the 5850 for 3 years. I used the R9 280 for 2 years...
I was just about to bite on this card. Had it in the cart and was about to enter CC information when I thought I'd look to see if there were any 1070's in stock.
Checked Amazon and they had one from Gigabyte that's in stock on the 10th for just $30 more than this 980 Ti.
Hope I made the right...
Appreciate the replies silent-circuit.
I woke up dejected that I was not going to have my phone all day. Mentioned to my wife that if she could called the Samsung number that Verizon provided for me on the tech call last night (what a waste of 2 hours), I'd greatly appreciate it.
She calls me...
Trying hard not to. Been on with tech support for last 40 minutes and they pretty much have me waiting around for five minutes at a time after I press certain buttons to see if it leaves the screen (it doesn't).
So I updated the phone tonight.
After 15 minutes of progress bar movement, the phone resets itself and now decides to not leave the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Boot screen.
Booting in Safe mode doesn't do anything, nor does the USB debug mode.
Disappointed and sad.
Pre-ordered the xbox one variant on Sunday off Amazon for $59.99 with free shipping. Ships on Thursday but oh well, beggars can't be choosers.
Checked Amazon today to see they're selling the game for just under $70, plus tax, plus $3.99 shipping.
Went to my order history to see that the game...
For anyone that's used the BC feature of XB1 so far, does it actually improve the fluidity of the game? I played RDR a few years ago and remember that it ran at sub 30 fps during heavy sprite intensive screens.
Also, if I have SOTN as a 360 download/purchase, is it automatically available...
I thought it was a decent game for what I paid for it, which I think was $9.99 on the last sale. I would have disappointed at full price though, especially if I was expecting anything remotely comparable to the Dark Souls series.
$5-$10?? Did it ever go that low? I got it on the Winter Steam sale for $17.99 I believe.
I think they may have offered the game to PC players that already had vanilla DS2 for a discount. Is that what it was?
I put in about that many hours into DS2 as well and never bought the third DLC.
The re-release of the game with the different placements does make the game feel new again if that's any encouragement for you to start up again. Losing that many hours is a bummer though.
My brother bought a new video card over winter break and wanted suggestions on games. I suggested DS2 as I had much fun with it. He said he'd buy it if I bought it (previously had ds2 on 360) on Steam. I had already gone to NG+++ with one character on the original ds2 and finished the game with...
I'm not so sure of that. I think mid 30's would be about the median age of members of this forum. It's been around since around 2000 when a lot of us were in high school and college. We all thought we would grow out of gaming by the time we had a family and were in our thirties. Boy were we wrong!
A Blu-ray (Kingsman) from Target for $10 plus tax.
Yeah... I didn't come out ahead on that one. Waited in line for twenty minutes for a Galaxy Note 5 purchase with a free $250 gift card and they told me they didn't have any more. I guess it didn't help that didn't get there until well after...
I had beta 15.11
Installing beta 15.11.1... will chime in with results from my r9 280 in a bit. I run at 2560 x 1440, low settings and the fps dips to low 20's in outside areas where I can see into the distance for miles. Average fps is probably mid 30's overall and goes up to the 50's indoors.
They had a deal similar to this with the gtx 970 these last few months that I almost bit on. But with this new deal, I'm even more tempted.
