    Anyone give up on PC Surround sound and just go stereo? Any regrets?

    What's this plugin you speak of? Plugin for foobar or what? p.s. OK, found it, it is for Win10 only so no good to me because I still use Win8.1 and will until it is no longer supported. https://www.howtogeek.com/309853/how-to-use-dolby-atmos-surround-sound-on-windows-10/

    1070==>1080 Sidegrade?

    So, you are frame rate limiting, which you can do in any game by using Nvidia Inspector. But you say it is like vsync without the tearing. You have to turn vsync on to stop tearing even if you do use a frame rate limiter.

    So, Avira Flagged Something in my Portal Download from Steam?

    I stopped using Avira because it gets so many false positives. Microsoft Defender is good enough form me and even that gets false positives sometimes.

    REPLACEABLE EARCUPS. Why are they so rare?

    Yea, and just two posts down we have: "call me crazy. i much prefer the sound of the dt990. at least it's not boring." 3rd post down: "Call ME crazy, but the DT990 is my absolute favorite headphone. The DT880 doesn't even come close to the enjoyability I get from my 990s" As I said, it is...

    How big is your Gaming screen?

    24" TN 144Hz because most of my desk space is needed for speakers and an integrated amp. I do have a 27" IPS in the closet though. I should have bought smaller speakers because as it is now I can never go larger than 24".

    REPLACEABLE EARCUPS. Why are they so rare?

    Exact same driver as the DT990 so it is arguable.

    I used Razer Surround for a while but it has no on/off mode so I can switch between drivers. Only way to stop it is to uninstall it, so I did.

    Best headphones of 2018

    The list I posted had audioquest Nighthawk at #3 but I went and looked at the list again and they have removed them and put Campfire Audio Cascade in their place. I guess the Nighthawks were too cheap for their list. Anyway, I like the Nighthawks and at $350.00 USD they are a bargain.

    PC Gamer Has Released a Top 100 PC Games List for 2018

    Why does she care if Steam knows how long you played a game? It's just a harmless statistic. And you can set Steam to offline mode where I don't think it does track your game time.

    PC Gamer Has Released a Top 100 PC Games List for 2018

    I have the Witcher3 but I just can't get into it for some reason. Actually, I find a lot of games these days just annoy me and are not all that fun. My go to game is Battlefield 4 for these past five years. Tried BFV beta and have already uninstalled it. A game has to grab me or I just won't...

    REPLACEABLE EARCUPS. Why are they so rare?

    Same thing has happened with the headband on my Shure 840 headphones. The cheap pleather is rotting off already and I hardly ever use those headphones.

    Which PCI-e SOund Card to use for Headphone gaming only

    Those headphones are 50ohm so don't really need amplification. Might sound a bit better with an amp though. You could buy just an external headphone amp and not a soundcard.
