    Post Pictures of your Console Setups! All Generations

    Finally finished setting things up in the man cave. Not nearly as elaborate as some of you guys, but it gets the job done. Sorry for the shitty phone pics:

    What is the best way to connect a Dreamcast to a modern TV?

    Quick search shows that at least one Onkyo model from a few years ago, the TX-NR609, supports VGA in. I'm also in the same boat as the OP, and found this combination to work quite well: Tomee Dreamcast VGA cable OREI VGA -> HDMI converter box I had originally tried the Sewell...

    Just bought an original Wii!

    The first 3 games on that list had very limited production runs, accounting for their current high resale value. I remember picking up Xenoblade at release for $50, and then selling it on Ebay for over $100 a few months later after I finished it.

    New Video Card = Static When Gaming

    Update: I switched out the power supply with a SeaSonic SSR-650RM, and the static's completely gone. Thanks very much for the suggestion!

    The Wii U is done

    Can we please just get this thread locked? It's obvious that the Wii U isn't "done" until Nintendo announces that they are no longer producing/supporting the console. Until that time comes, this whole thread is just pointless.

    Bought a Sony W800B 50 inch. Impressions.

    Anyone know if the Best Buy exclusive variant W700B uses the same panel as the W800B? Best as I can tell, the only major differences is that the W700B has a different color bezel/stand (silver vs black) and lacks the 3d capabilities of the W800B. It's also $100 cheaper, which is a great...

    I really like that desk and bookshelf - where did you get both pieces from?

    New Video Card = Static When Gaming

    Tried running an extension cord to the receiver from a bathroom outlet that's definitely on a separate circuit, and no dice - still getting the static. I'll try switching the PSUs in both rigs next.

    New Video Card = Static When Gaming

    I just recently put a GTX 970 in my main rig, and ever since, I've been getting buzzing/static/interference coming through my receiver (refurbed Onkyo TX-SR507), but only when the GPU is being used. While on the desktop, there's no static/interference at all, but as soon as I bring up a game...

    For FPS games do you play normal or inverted?

    For me, it goes like this: First-person = kb/m = normal Third-person = controller = inverted I don't play first-person games on consoles. If a third-person game (either on PC or console) doesn't have an option to invert both axes, then I simply won't play it

    Speakers sound extremely muffled with new amp..

    Double-check that you've got things connected on the speaker end properly, in particular the metal jumper. For a single amp connection, the jumper needs to remain connected. You can then use either the top or bottom set of binding posts to connect to the amp, though I think Polk recommends you...

    Dark Souls 2 PC - April 25, 2014

    Compared to DS1, did they add some additional "dead" frames into the end of your attack animations that prevent you from blocking immediately after finishing an attack? I recall having no trouble at all with transitioning from attack -> block in DS1, but I'm getting wrecked ALOT in DS2 in...

    The Wii U is done

    I just picked up the Mario/Luigi Wii U bundle from Wal-Mart this morning on my way to work (they price-matched the Target sale price for $275), and then got in on the 3-for-2 deal at Target with Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, and Mario Kart 8. Can't wait to get home and start digging in...

    FS: EVGA GTX 780 3GB SC - Priced to sell

    Wow, awesome price here. I probably would have jumped all over this had I not just bought a different GTX 780 myself.

    Antec NEO ECO 520C and GTX780

    I'll be running the 780 alongside a mildly OCed i5-3570K at 4.2 at stock voltage, so nothing crazy at all to worry about from the CPU side. I'm also not planning on upping the voltage on the 780 either, and OCing it only as far as the stock voltage will take me. Sounds like I should be fine...

    Antec NEO ECO 520C and GTX780

    Good to know, thanks. The main thing that I'm worried about is that the 780 recommends at least 42 amps on the 12V+ rail, and the Antec that I've got has only 40. If I do get the card and find out that the Antec isn't enough, what types of issues might I be encountering?

    Antec NEO ECO 520C and GTX780

    I'm considering upgrading to a GTX780, specifically this model, and am looking to know if my current Antec NEO ECO 520C will be enough juice. Full current specs for my main rig are in my sig. If the Antec won't cut it, do you think a Seasonic G-Series 550 Watt PSU would get the job done? I...

    PlayStation 4 Controller on your PC (works great! and wireless!)

    You can blame Xinput (and more specifically the God-awful/forsaken GFWL) for this, as it is a curse in as many ways as it is a blessing. Gone (well, mostly anyways) are the days of games supporting full-blown configuration of any Direct Input controller you have connected, instead opting to use...

    The Wii U is done

    I love all the folks in here who act like Nintendo already has one foot in the grave because of the Wii U's low adoption rate. If Nintendo hemorrhages enough money from the Wii U and puts that console to rest early, that doesn't mean that the company is going to take a dive along with it...

    [RUMOR] COD: Ghosts 720p on Xbox One; 1080p on PS4

    He's mostly correct. FOV is (generally) a function of aspect ratio, not resolution. Since 720p and 1080p are the same aspect ratio...

    Xbox One is Significantly Weaker: Do you care?

    Resolution is only part of the equation. If given the choice between 720p/60fps and 1080p/30fps, then I'll take the former any day of the week. One of the major turn-offs for me in the current gen was that so many titles couldn't even keep a steady 30fps at sub 720p resolutions. The largest...

    The Ultimate PS4 FAQ

    Now we know why the PS4 has better hardware yet costs $100 less than XBone. They've apparently decided to strip out a good number of the multimedia features that were present in the PS3. This makes sense to me, as this whole time Sony has stated how they've put their focus on making the PS4...

    Are the price drops from Nvidia enough to make you go Nvidia rather than AMD?

    The price drop in and of itself? No. However, if G-sync turns out to be the real deal, then I'm going to be switching to Team Green very soon.

    Amazon ps4 delivered on Oct 30th? Just received email.

    Variable Refresh Rate Monitors (G-Sync) --- Refresh Rate Varies While You Play!!!

    If I'm understanding all of this correctly, there really should be no reason at all that G-Sync can't be included in monitors with 60hz IPS/VA panels. I absolutely love the PQ on my Dell U2311H, which is a 1080p 60hz IPS panel, and would switch to Team Green in a heartbeat if they either made a...

    7950 Diagnosis Help

    Sounds to me like the card is throttling itself to prevent overheating. Could be that the fans have some dust built-up that's preventing airflow, or that you need to replace the TIM. There have been a number of horror stories where the folks at MSI who applied TIM to these cards smeared it on...

    What brands are not utter crap these days?

    This was my same exact experience with MSI as well. I had replaced the TIM on my 7950 a few months ago, only to have it blow a cap just last week. After sending the card back to MSI, I received exactly two bits of communication from them: 1. An automated email that they received the card...
