I came from a overclocked 2500k 4.7ghz 8gb ddr3 and a GTX 1080 FE. I mainly play overwatch and I can tell you from just upgrading my cpu/ram 3800x and 16GB DDR4 I gained a stupid amount of FPS using the same settings. I’m talking about an increase of 50-70+ FPS. I have a 1440p 144hz GSYNC monitor.
I have some spare parts that I’d like to turn into a living room box for movies. I hate using the Apps in the TVs to watch movies. Can anyone recommend a small pc case. I hate that I have an ATX MB but I will have to work with what I’ve got.

I had a 9800 Pro which I was very proud of. Then I thought I hit the jackpot when I had to RMA my XFX 8800 GTS 320mb card and got back an incredible G92 8800 GTS 512mb. So my favorite is the G92 512mb.
Like many have said just spend $15 on a Long ass Cat5 cable and do a direct connection into the modem. Maybe I’m old fashioned but I’ve always had a direct connection to my main PC. Never ever had a wireless card in my pc. Wireless is great for everyone using it for Facebook and YouTube. But...
My Corsair H100i RGB Platinum ran me $120 on sale. I couldve gotten a D15 for $90. Whats the average cost to go full "run of the mill" water setup? Just curious. And with no experience too..whats it cost to pay someone to do it?
I don’t have a 3900X but my 3800X after some tinkering was able to do 4350mhz at 1.325v. Doing 300sec Cinebench r20 netting around 5100 or so depending if I inhaled or exhaled when I executed the program. Temps stayed at 69c with my AIO. So I say you’re doing great so far.
So I did Prime95 blend test stable at 4.4ghz 1.4v temps hit a maximum of 70c on stock TiM that came with the AIO.I bought some mx-4 thermal compound and it’s arriving today. Guess my chip ain’t that much of an OCer but I’m fine with that.
Absolutely living this upgrade. 4.5ghz 1.4v on a H115i w stock thermal pad idles around 35-40 ish and from what coretemp tells me the max was 70c after an hour of Overwatch and BL3 and running some benchmarks. GTX 1080FE +200 core Borderlands 3 on high settings with fog off is netting me 75-100...
This is probably a test demo game Kojima came up with to see if his sheep’s will follow him. He succeeded and now he knows if he puts out anything with his name on it people will flock and buy. This guy is a fucking genius. He knows his followers will come in and make justifications on why the...
I’m holding onto my 1080 FE overclocked +200 core until next gen. Gonna grab whatever Nvidia card I can get my hands on for $500-$600. My GSYNC monitor has me tied to Team Green until further notice.
Maybe hold onto your 1070 a bit longer? Overclock it a bit to gain some performance maybe?

32GB ram does sound like a good idea. I have a Rosewill 750w PSU that’s rated at 80+ Platinum from 2012. My case is a huge Coolermaster HAF 922. Im looking to have a smaller case. My Monitor is GSYNC so I’ll stick with Nvidia. I was looking between either the RTX 2060Super or 2070Super. But In...
1080p60 to 1080p144 was what felt to me was an experience that was felt and noticed immediately. The mouse movement on the desktop was what I noticed right away. So so smooth. Then I jumped into Overwatch. Holy shit so so smooth yet again. I’ve never went back to 60hz again.
Then the upgrade...
I ran into a insanely great deal on this Motherboard(By insane I meant it was damn near close to being FREE.). I’m coming from a 2500k overclocked to 4.7ghz with a GTX 1080FE. Which Ryzen CPU? It’s purely for gaming. I’ll be needing ram as well but I’m not too picky about that.
BTW I have a 27...
Single player games don’t interest me much. So I’ll name a multiplayer game
Q3A on the DC
Q3A on PC (UFT mod and RA3)
That game and it’s multiplayer mods is the best time I’ve ever had in gaming. This was back in like 2000 or 2001.
I bought my GTX 1080 FE from Best Buy 2 years ago at $549. It overclocks nicely to 2050mhz core. It’s paired with my 2500k at 4.7ghz and a 1440p 165hz GSync . Plays games nicely at high to ultra settings. Definitely gonna have to upgrade my entire cpu platform soon. Been eyeing Ryzen.
So my daughter who’s 90 % recovered from a virus which caused her temps to go up as high as 104 in a children’s hospital. She’s 3. There’s an Xbox 360 in her room. I went to pick it up being curious as to never actually being this close to one. Holy hell its heavy. Now I’ve picked up my fair...
I don't know if the visual improvements are real but playing Overwatch at Ultra Settings I can't help but feel a bit more immersed and everything looked so crisp.Hell I had to push the monitor a bit further back than I did with my 24 inch 144hz 1080p.
Any recommendation as to what games I...
