  1. Building a new PC

  2. Building a new PC

    Looks ok but the video card will be completely outdated within 2 years and is borderline minimum for games coming out now.   Can you not build one yourself?
  3. The Steam controller has converted me to PC

    Yep.  One of the main reasons I bought the Steam Controller was to emulate GCN games.

    I really do love it too.  It took me quite some time to get comfortable with the analog stick location though because I'm used to the Xbox 360/Nintendo location that is closer to your thumb.  Still not 100% used to it, but it's more comfortable now.
  5. You wouldn't bang the original Rita?
  6. Fallout 4: Battle of the Midrange cards. GTX 970 vs R390

    Thanks new guy I didn't know the 970 had a coil whine problem.
  7. UPlay is an awful piece of shit

    What I hated about the browser system is that I couldn't just preload the game while I browse for a server.  I would have liked to change my graphics settings and key bindings before joining a server.  Otherwise I don't really mind using a browser to find a server.
  8. Can't decide between FreeSync and GSync package

    No video card you get now will last you 5 years.  With that in mind, I think it's better to focus on monitor quality and cost savings.  By saving some cost now, you can allocate that money towards a better video card in the future - like 2 years from now.  2 years from now we'll have refresh cards of the upcoming next gen GPUs, which will be a huge improvement over a 980 or 390 and a better option than adding a second 390 for Xfire a year from now.

  10. High end MultiGPU examined by DF

    They don't make a difference in average frametate with single gpus.  But they are important for sli.  Also amd cards even single configs have more cpu overhead than nvidia.  It used to be the other way around in the Fermi vs 5000/6000 days.
  11. They could make it into an asymmetrical multiplayer game.  64 Koreans take on a single tank!
  12. Samsung and LG making screens wider than 21:9

    High refresh rate alone isn't important to me anymore now.  My next monitor has to have some kind of zero motion blur technology (like lightboost).  It makes such a huge difference, especially in competitive games.  Last week I tried Rocket League in regular 120 Hz mode and was missing easy hits on the ball, and was getting confused and had a harder time predicting where the ball was going to be.  I went back to 120 Hz Lightboosted and was literally twice as good with twice the score.

    For people who value consistent and the smoothest frametimes, you really cannot have too much CPU power because there's simply too many games that require it.  With so many open world games now, draw distance is murdering our CPUs.  And then of course there are the games that are unoptimized shit.
  15. UPlay is an awful piece of shit

    Now that I recall perhaps you're using an outdated version of Uplay.  I'm able to sign in to Uplay right now.   Got to the website and download the latest client and install it.  I bet that will fix your problem, because I had a similar issue late last year.
