    Price/Performance Be Damned - Does anyone just like tinkering with new cards?

    Yep. I don't even have new games to try with my GTX 980. I just wanted to see how powerful it is. I bought the EVGA SC and it OC'ed to 125%, +80 GPU, +350 mem. Not bad!

    What's the best graphic card?

    I have had both semi highest end cards availble in the begining of this year. 780 ti and 290x I loved the 780ti but since I am a battlefield fiend, I swapped it for a 290x to try mantle. I have barely noticed the difference but in return I got to save $150 BUT even though my 290x is a Sapphire...

    The Best GAMING Monitor at this moment

    Although I also agree that 120Hz > IPS or Aspect Ratio, it's kind of short sighted (due to gaming? ;)) to state a preference as a fact.

    Coil Whine in MSI 290x

    IMO the 290x series are loud anyway you cut it -- custom fans and all. I get loud coil whine on mine and since it's the only GPU I have, I'm going to have to live with it until the next gen.

    Cops In Watch Dogs Are Unstoppable

    I hated the game at first but it was only because I couldn't play it. Once I got it to work I really like it. GTA is ok and all but I feel like a psychopath. This game changes that.

    Watch Dogs Image Quality Preview [H]

    Maybe it's because I have a sick rig but the game is good -- very entertaining. The AI is very aggressive and it makes the game very intense. It's a much bigger deal to upset the cops in Watch_Dogs than it was in GTA4 (PC gamer; no GTAV). It's also a nice change of pace from chitty chitty bang...

    quietest card for 1440p gaming?

    Since I own a tri-x oc 290x I can wholeheartedly recommend a 780ti that I had before I got this (I insisted on testing Mantle). The 780 ti was miles quieter. 290x is too loud but Mantle is nice :p

    The Brutal Ageism of Tech

    Older people may tend to rely mostly on past experiences which is debatably a minus in the tech sector. We need more forward thinkers to drive technology forward and usually that will be some 20-40 something year old rebel. Or not.

    After installing aftermaket cooler my card has problems 'starting up.'

    Had a similar issue with my first 290x. Couldn't figure it out so I thought I must have broken it. Sold on ebay to someone who was able to fix. Sorry I don't have a solution but at least you know it might be fixable.
