    4GB on mid-range cards, or is 2GB really enough?

    I play Skyrim with 50+ mods on 2560x1600 full AF, AA on and yes it uses more than 4 gigs at a time and that's why I have Titan which has 6GB. I'm gonna sell my left nut to get a 4k monitor and the right one to buy another Titan or 790. Never settle for 'midrange' graphic card because if you do...

    R9 290 monitor goes to sleep while gaming

    i'm experiencing the same problem with my dell u2913wm (21:9) monitor but my gfx is an old amd 6970. It never happened with my other dell 24" monitor so I'm guessing it's either the monitor or the driver issue.

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    I'm glad I found someone else is having a same issue. "The Koolance block performed poorly because the default thermal pads are too thick causing a poor thermal connection to the GPU core itself."...

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    Update: Problem solved. Koolance VID-NXTTN Water Block has a very large gap between GPU core to its surface. The WB comes with two different thickness of thermal pads for the VRMs and if you miss place onto the wrong side it will create even more gap. I disassembled it and found out an...

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    Both benchmark and actual gaming does same thing. One thing I notice is Titan's backplate is extremely hot while GPU temp (front side) is barely over 60c. I keep having this concern about the GPU memory module's temperature....

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    I just swapped out the PSU (850w) from the other computer and unfortenately the problem persist. I've also installed left over RAM from previous build and that didn't do anything either. I'm going to activate the on board graphic from the motherboard and see if that works. I'm using Ungine...

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    Please excuse my ignorance but how do I measure the power consumption? I mean GPU Z sensor show 90-100% TDP during Unigine Valley run then does that mean it's getting enough? BTW my supply is Seasonic 750w.

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    How important is the GPU memory's cooling? I mean the Koolance waterblock is a full cover but I'm not so sure how well it is contacted with them. so gpu temp is ok but memories are overheating? Or might be an another PSU going down? oh wait do I have a leak in my loop??? I'm going crazy....

    Newly installed GTX Titan dillema

    So I just got a brand new Titan along with a Koolance WB for an upgrade. During the benchmark it locks up randomly and reboots itself. Both CPU and GPU are in a comfortable temp zone, 60c and 70c max accordingly. I had this kind of problem with 6990 but only when it was overheating like an...

    I also have lost my interest in gaming but not the hardwares. My wife would ask me why I am still buying these expensive parts and I would say 'so my machine is ready when/if my old habit comes back'. I dunno why but watching Skyrim runs flawlessly after adding hundreds of mod is more...

    What nVidia card would be equal or better than 6990?

    I wouldn't go anything under a 690 or a titan. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think a titan would be a better choice for the future gaming since it features 6GB?

    OCZ Vertex3 disappointment

    Will I see an advertised spec performance using a low cost controller such as a Highpoint 620 or a LSI 9211? It seems that OCZ forum "gurus" saying I need a hardware raid controller like a LSI 9260 or a LSI 9265 in order to max out Vertex3 spec. Can anyone enlighten me please?
