    I'm kinda hoping the card will warm up the room it's in for the winter though... lol

    Sapphire Vega 64 Reference $440 + free games

    I'm mostly excited to ramp up the graphics and framerate for Elite Dangerous in VR. I was just going to run it stock, but I have been reading a lot of places to undervolt it, not entirely sure why I would want to do that?

    Sapphire Vega 64 Reference $440 + free games

    I didn't know they did it either, very slick on their part. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise.

    Sapphire Vega 64 Reference $440 + free games

    NewEgg sent me a code for an additional $45 off after I kept this in my cart for two days. At ~$405 I bit... seems like it'll be a bit of an upgrade over a 290X

    When you get your new iPhone X - Clean Install or Restore from Backup?

    Just curious what the general consensus is on this one. I've been going back and forth on it in my head and I think I'm going with the clean install. But I'm not sure if that's the conditioning Windows and new hardware has had on me. When I went from iPhone 5 to 6+ I restored from backup, and...

    Headset for Sit down gaming and sims

    Ecosystem: Vive will put you squarely in SteamVR land and Oculus is building it's own ecosystem. And although today they are mostly compatible that's not always guaranteed to be the case. Also if you have anything against Facebook having your data. Wires: Oculus requires each camera to be...

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    I didn't say they were cordless? I said I didn't have to run a cable back to my PC.... Yes, I have an outlet underneath each lighthouse. Figuring out a single, much shorter, power cable is so much better than stringing a USB cable 20 feet across the room, and makes my wife much happier. Plus...

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    My last sentence admits I could be completely wrong about it. And considering this whole argument was brought about because I have an opinion and you think it's wrong, using how I feel to support my opinion is completely justified. At the end of the day, I voted with my dollars and bought a...

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    The LG headset is an upgrade in resolution if I've read correctly. I'm treating the HMD exactly as a monitor. I'm assuming at one point I will be able to buy an HMD with upgraded resolution, refresh rate, etc that will continue to work with the rest of my system as it is today. If those vendors...

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    Except that PC Monitors are upgradeable... When you upgrade your video card, do you keep the existing one? No, you replace it. The difference is that you don't need to replace the rest of the computer to do it. The new LG headset coming out, wanna bet that it'll work with the Vive Lighthouses...

    This is exactly what swung me to a Vive over a Rift. Felt more like buying an upgradeable PC rather than a console.

    Rez Infinite

    I'll admit I missed out on this game the first time around but this surprise release with VR I picked up, and wow is it quite the experience. I'd definitely recommend it if have even the inkling that you might enjoy it.

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    I said slightly inferior because of the Vive's exterior camera, and the chaperone system. But again, the price difference doesn't make up for a single camera. Running cables from my PC to each of the cameras is something that I'm not going to like very much though. Plus I'd really like to be...

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    I guess the question is if the value of the lower cost Rift makes up for it being slightly inferior then. And I really can't answer that without trying it. I'm still leaning towards the Vive but it is quite the difference in price.

    Help me decide which one to buy...

    Been out of the loop with VR and haven't kept up with the developments or what's happening. But last weekend I tried my brother-in-law's Vive room scale setup and loved it and the wife told me I could buy a system. I'm seeing the deep discounted Rift package and honestly don't know which way to...

    GIGABYTE Z170X Gaming 7 LGA 1151 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I ended up going with the Gaming GT over the Gaming 7 because of the sale price. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of information about the differences between the two boards, and maybe I made a mistake not going with the exact board reviewed here, but so far I've had good luck with it. My...

    PowerColor PCS+ R9 290X Video Card Review @ [H]

    I bought this exact card for $270 after rebate a few weeks ago off of NewEgg. It's been incredible, especially stepping up from Crossfire'd 6970s. I've been playing the crap out of Far Cry 4 with it, and this review just confirmed what I've been seeing in practice. Highly recommended from me as...

    WTT: Far Cry 4

    I have a copy of Far Cry 4 that I haven't redeemed, mostly because I don't want to install UPlay. I'd like to trade it for a AAA title, like Shadow of Mordor. I'm willing to listen to offers.

    Can someone give me a copy of Mavericks system file?

    Yes, but if the root certificates have already been deleted, they can't be exported ;) I was able to get a copy of a Mountain Lion version of the file, so the OS isn't completely broken anymore.

    Humble Bundle - 14 Days of Bundles

    A ton of people jumped on the prices they were offering and now they're testing market forces by slowing raising prices again. We won't see another drop until there's a period of declining sales.
