    AOC 34" CU34G2X 144Hz UW $438 | Amazon

    I have one, mainly use it for racing games as it's attached to my sim rig. Most of the internet reviews are pretty accurate, works well with AMD for Freesync but I think G-Sync might have some issues. I think you can configure a custom frequency range to possibly resolve the issues. Otherwise...

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    I'm slightly interested in the new cards as I game at 1440p ultra wide 144hz and may upgrade to ultra ultra wide at some point. I'm waiting for confirmed pricing and real benchmarks before deciding though so I won't make any moves ahead of time.

    Understanding a "streamer" setup in regards to graphics card setup

    If he had the card installed in his gaming PC, it's possible that he used it to stream/capture something else such as consoles and then did single PC streaming for the rest of his stuff. I'd personally use it in a second PC though like you plan to do.

    Olympus quits camera business after 84 years

    I don't think it affects consumers much because everyone is buying Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fuji stuff as pendragon1 pointed out. If this was a two horse race then I would be concerned.

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    I'm cautiously optimistic for a D2 remaster but I could see them screwing it up. I wouldn't mind running through it again and farming some bosses like the good old days but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Command and Conquer remastered

    You said you were disappointed, the pathfinding sucks and that everyone who gave it good reviews was blinded by nostalgia... So make your own conclusions based on those comments. It's just a simple remaster, you are allowed to voice your opinion and I'm allowed to say you expected too much and...

    Command and Conquer remastered

    I don't know what point your cute little replies are trying to get at but I don't follow. Sorry you don't enjoy the game, but I do and don't really see why you are so angry with it. Hopefully you research your purchases better in the future.

    Command and Conquer remastered

    The 'bugs' didn't affect me when I first played the game and aren't affecting me now. *Shrug*

    Command and Conquer remastered

    I don't speak for everyone, but all I wanted was nostalgia with better graphics as mentioned above. Reviewers weren't blinded by it as that is the point of the release. If they had had changed the AI, updated pathfinding and mechanics then it wouldn't be the game I remembered and I would have...

    Command and Conquer remastered

    I played a few missions today and am completely satisfied. They even threw in the install screen that instantly hit me with nostalgia. The game plays like I remembered and I have no complaints.

    Thanks I did forget. I'll probably get it at launch.

    Trackmania - Ubisoft Claims Yearly Fee To Access Game Is Not Subscription

    I'm not defending Ubi as this is pretty dirty, but the base game is free you have to pay to access the track editor every year.

    HP Reverb G2

    It's just a dig at the over-zealous marketing team. 'No compromises' would generally mean best in class for each specification, with a high price to show for it.

    HP Reverb G2

    This seems like a decent all-round headset. I would mainly get one for sim racing so it's nice not having to deal with base station tracking and the resolution is good. Refresh rate at 90hz should be enough and they added better lenses and IPD adjustments which covers all the basics I think.

    Remnant: From the Ashes

    Every time I see this thread I'm reminded I should jump back in and play Remnant some more. I still haven't tried the DLC.

    Zen 3 CPUs - 500 Series or Newer Chipsets Only

    MSI also released the MAX B450 boards that had larger 32 MB bios capacity, will be interesting to see if those models get un-offical support.

    I think that was the problem for me. If I had wanted to play competitive CS I would have already, adding characters and skills isn't going to draw me in. I was normally just a pub server scrub and never had the urge to really practice and get good at it and Valorant gives me the same feeling.

    Multiple platform racing wheel recommendations?

    If you want to go more mid-tier, Fanatec can support Xbox and PC, or even Xbox, PC and PS4 depending on which base/wheel combo you get. Basically all their wheel bases work on Xbox and PC, but you need an Xbox specific rim to enable the Xbox compatibility. For some reason their cheapest Xbox...

    Borderlands 3

    So I have the base game of this, haven't really played it yet but plan to soon. I have a $10 coupon burning a hole in my pocket, should I spend it on the Tentacle DLC? If so, will I miss out by not having the Moxxi DLC?

    Automobilista 2

    This was my understanding too. Project Cars 2 has good visuals and is great in VR supposedly. AMS2 is tweaking the physics and sounds for the cars they are adding but they haven't upgraded the graphics much from what I have gathered. I also agree that Assetto Corsa Competizione is a great title...

    What JDS Labs products?

    Hard to say if it will make a difference. I'm still running a Creative X-Fi Titanium HD so I haven't gone down th DAC road yet. If the chip in the DGX is sub-par then possibly you will hear a difference.

    What JDS Labs products?

    The JDS Labs Atom is one of the best amps on the market for the price, it tests better than any of the Schiit amps in the same price bracket or better. You basically need to step up to one of the THX amps from SMSL, Drop or Monoprice that are in the $300+ range before you find something better...

    Remnant: From the Ashes

    I had a blast with the game for about a week, then all my friends stopped playing after a couple of us beat the story. I'll probably end up getting the DLC, I really enjoyed the game when I was playing it.

    iRacing Team [H]ardOCP Paints! Show Your [H] Pride!

    Ya it sucks having an initial cost like that after subbing. The bright side is that slowly the content costs will drop as you will need less cars and tracks each season. I tried to stick with popular tracks that are used in multiple series, between 3 cars and 5-6 tracks I spent around $90. I...

    iRacing Team [H]ardOCP Paints! Show Your [H] Pride!

    Decided to bump this since iracing is seeing a surge of popularity these days. Any new players out there? I signed up a few weeks ago and am currently at a Road C license but I really need to practice and get my pace up. Since I missed out on 8 weeks of season participation by a week or two I...

    That's funny because as a non CS:GO player other than casually, the game that Valorant reminds me most of is CS:GO as far as gunplay and match progression.

    I actually wasn't actively watching anyone when I got it, it showed up in my email while I was making coffee this morning. They posted that if you watch a minimum of two hours you will be permanently in the pool and don't have to continue watching. If you do continue to watch, each hour will...

    I finally got my invite this morning, hopefully I will give it a try tonight.

    They are pretty smart, taking the best parts of a few different FPS, putting 120 tick servers as standard and really working on the netcode. I imagine it will be a hit but I'm not sure if it will pull me away from Siege full time. I'll give it a try though.

    RUMOR: NVIDIA to announce the GeForce RTX 3000 in August

    Seems somewhat possible. There were rumors earlier that they wanted to announce something at GTC then held back due to everything getting canceled.

    Game recording on old CPU, which SW with lightweight video format/codec? It's free with the AMD drivers so give it a try and see what results you get. I briefly tried it last year but the audio was terribly out of sync. I ended up moving to a 2 PC setup with a capture card. They constantly update Relive though so maybe...

    Google Pixel 3

    My Pixel 3 has been pretty good so far. I had one issue where call quality suffered for a month or so but it might have been carrier related and it went away eventually. Otherwise a lot of the small annoying issues that I had with the Samsung version of Android are not present in stock Android...

    Gears of War 5

    This game is worth trying if you have the game pass but I wouldn't buy it. It got old quickly for me, the two open world areas kinda killed it. By the end I was almost forcing myself to play just so I could finish it.

    Xbox game pass PC

    Also one thing to note in some cases DLC isn't included, which sucks for something like Dirt 2.0 where all the daily/weekly challenge races can be DLC only.

    Mouse DPI

    I liked my 502 and used it for years before moving to lighter mice, but as a general desktop mouse I would have no issues using one today.
