    Gigabyte GTX 1080ti gaming overclock dieing when gaming.

    I had a similar issue. When I got the same card, it would either throw weird nonsense BSODs or freeze outright. Changed my PSU and it fixed it like Araxie said above.

    Post Your pfSense Setup/pfSense Sugestions

    Nice! I am on gigabit but don't plan to run VPN yet. The internal N adapter will serve minor devices possibly (or give me wireless when I am not using it as a pfSense box). If it ends up being too slow, I do have a real 802.11ac router that I can put after pfSense and let it do its thing. I...

    Post Your pfSense Setup/pfSense Sugestions

    I just got a SFF Dell Optiplex off craigslist to set up pfSense on. Has an i5 4570 and 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM, total overkill. For the NIC cards, I got a (hopefully genuine) Dell/Intel quad port PCI-e for wired and a D-Link DWA-556 for wireless N. Hopefully it will be a routing monster once those...

    Guys let's support AMD gpu, and boycott Nvidia, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI

    My money goes to the best GPU at the time of my purchase. Back in May 2017 that was the 1080 Ti by a long shot at the $640 I got it for. Card since has doubled in value.

    Forza, Vega destroys 1080ti

    Like every AMD person waiting for magical drivers to fix Vega in every single game? It would be in line with most games going to Nvidia. I know, crazy right?

    Forza, Vega destroys 1080ti

    Needs to be retested with the new 387.92 Nvidia drivers, supposedly 15-25% boost.

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update- October 17th

    It looks at whatever you have installed and multiple GPUs are possible. I have for instance Intel 4600 Graphics on my i7 4770K and a GTX 1080 Ti for actual gaming and other stuff. So with there being SO many Intel systems, of course it is going to have mostly their GPUs.

    [Warm] Acer predator monitors edit: nvm tn panels

    Amazon, Newegg and it looks like even Walmart are selling the TN panel version for $599, that is normal price. The IPS version is usually $799. The only place I've seen lower prices on that was Costco ... first to $599 then $499 before they went out of stock.

    How much better is high resolution audio

    FLAC and WAV are identical, you will not hear more detail on WAV. FLAC is essentially a losslessly compressed WAV. You can extract a FLAC back to WAV and it will have the same hashes. There is 0 loss, therefore nothing to hear differently. You prefer the sound of "similar bitrate SACD to...

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    Never had any issues with mine. Moved from a GTX 780 to GTX 1080 Ti. Went from 1 DVI + 1 HDMI + 2 DisplayPort on the 780 to 3 Displayport + 1 HDMI on the 1080 Ti.

    I purchased the cheapest 1080 Ti I could find

    They had this 1080 Ti on sale not long ago for $639... Which after ebay cashback and whatnot, I walked away with it for $580. It is a great card and I am happy.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

    I actually enjoyed these. Proper planning like putting C4/mines on all the routes cars can come and ordering guys / rebels to the right spots makes most of these a piece of cake. One of the very few times that I failed, I shot down a helicopter and it LANDED ON THE RADIO. I wasn't even mad...

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

    It's best to completely ignore the route suggested in many situations, and go on a motorcycle/jeep offroad or a helicopter. The suggested GPS routes are often horrible and will take much longer than needed to get there. I have recently 100% the game and yes, the radio tower ones were the most...

    Corsair TX850M PSU & Type 4 Cable Kit Luck Draw!

    Currently have a Corsair HX850 power supply that has been going strong for at least 3 years or more, no issues whatsoever. They are among the top of who I consider for power supplies, fans and cases. Speaking of cases, I have 5 Corsair AF140 Quiet edition fans on a fan controller in it.

    Got myself a fw900 in good condition, what a beast!

    I used to have the fancy Sony monitors like this, and Mitsubishi and Iiyama and such. I wouldn't even take one for free these days, just not worth it to me. Too heavy, too much heat/power usage, noise, geometry issues among other issues, etc. I enjoy the GSync monitors they have today with...

    Player unknown Battlegrounds

    I should have specified resolution, but Sprayingmango pretty much nailed it. Getting a 1080Ti and have a 2560x1440 144hz monitor. Good to know framerate will be that high.

    Best display for $500

    If there is a Costco near you with the Acer Predator XB271HU still, that is by far the best monitor for $499. Yes, thats the price at Costco if you can find one. The XB271HU is a 27" IPS 2560x1440 144hz or 165hz GSync monitor.

    144hz vs: 240hz

    I like IPS so I went with the Acer Predator XB271HU. 165hz IPS to me is better than any hz TN panel, even 240.

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    GSync is active from 31 to 144 or 165 fps on these monitors. Above 144/165 or below 31 it does nothing. If you have games that go above 144/165, it is best to use MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner Statistics Server to limit the framerate to not go over. A 970 should be good, I am still on a 780 and...

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    As good or better than Asus in many reviews. I would highly recommend it. I was highly skeptical of these monitors despite what friends online and in real life told me ... until I bought one myself. It really is game-changing.

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    Checked my local Costco stores, couldn't get cash back, but I don't mind. The one I bought at 599 seems to have won the panel lottery so I am happy.

    Opinions on new Gaming monitor?

    Acer Predator XB271HU, 27" IPS, 165hz, GSYNC I recently bought one at Costco for $599. Loving it so much. Wouldn't pay the 750-800+ for the Asus, when most reviews I could find said they were either equal, or the Acer was better. I did not want a TN panel either, they look horrible.
