      D1P 2017 Charity Campaign for The Life You Can Save: $1,690 (as of September 8, 2017)   12/12/2016

      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Welcome former GAFers!   10/21/2017

      I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all "refugees" from NeoGAF who may have discovered our humble little site as a result of the ongoing "situation" over at NeoGAF.   Feel free to check us out and if you like, join our small but interesting community!

      So you're new to DayOnePatch - please read this!   10/21/2017

      First of all, a warm, hearty WELCOME to DayOnePatch - we're REALLY pleased to have you here!   I mean that most sincerely!   Our site was founded in late 2010 when a bunch of people from the IGN forums got sick and tired of IGN being IGN and decided to create a brand new community under the name BadCartridge.  We operated under that name for a few years until there was a change in ownership which resulted in a change to the current name that we have now.  Since then, we've had a couple of owners before I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2016 and here we are today.   I guess I'd better say a word or two about our rules.  Look, here's the deal:  you are probably a sentient human being with a modicum of social skills so you probably have an idea of what is acceptable to say to another sentient human being with a modicum of social skills.  If what you are about to post gives you some pause as to whether you would say in in real life, then you probably shouldn't post it.  In other words, DON'T. BE. AN. ASSHOLE.  It's not that hard!  While we have a damned fine mod team, all disciplinary actions are ultimately my decision as the Supreme High Chancellor (catchy title, eh?  I came up with it myself!) of DayOnePatch.   Now that the unpleasant stuff is over, let's talk about the great things we have.  Well, we have a very semi-regular podcast!   We LOVE having members of our community as guests on the podcast, so if you don't mind having your voice transmitted to DOZENS of people, then let us know if you'd like to be a guest.   We have a Discord server for you to chat in -real-time of if you want to use the voice-chat capabilities for games! https://discord.gg/HB8C2w3   We have a Steam Community Group! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/day1patch# Yes, I know the title still says "Bad Cartridge" and that's because Valve doesn't allow name changes to Steam groups because Valve is stupid.   But the thing that I'm most proud of is the Announcement that you see at the top of the page.  http://www.dayonepatch.com/index.php?/announcement/40-d1p-2017-charity-campaign-for-the-life-you-can-save-1690-as-of-september-8-2017/ For this year, this community has donated nearly $1,700 to organizations that are trying to improve the lives of people in the developing world.  It is a true testament to the character of the individuals of this community that they've given to this project (as well as many, many others) freely and without expectation of anything in return.  Because of this, I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this community.   In closing, we're really glad you're here (feel free to bring other friends too!) and let's have a helluva lot of fun!

  1. Friend is having low FPS issues. Help?

    We tried the games on the lowest settings possible (resolution) and it still had the same issue. The games just don't want to use the GPU.
  2. Friend is having low FPS issues. Help?

  3. Friend is having low FPS issues. Help?

    Power settings are all set to high performance. For GPU drivers we went to the newest and we also tried going back a ways. Global 3D settings all look fine. Resolution is just 1080p I'm not sure on the Tflops of the GPU. How do you see how many Tflops the GPU is outputting? I just know we used MSI Afterburner to look at the current GPU usage.
  4. Friend is having low FPS issues. Help?

    Yes, the CPU is running at the correct speed.
  5. Friend is having low FPS issues. Help?

    Built a comp back in 2012 with the same specs but on Windows 7 and with an hdd. We did a clean install of Windows 7 onto a Samsung EVO 500gb. Once we had everything installed we found the fps dropped to 10 playing any games (sims 4, dota, Marvel Heroes). Noticed that the CPU seems to go up to 100% pretty easily. The more CPU usage, the lower the FPS. We tried... reinstalling Windows 7 Upgrading to Windows 10 Ensured all drivers were up to date Spent hours reverting to older drivers Changing settings and priorities for some of the CPU intensive processes listed Apparently looking the MSI afterburner showed only ~20% gpu usage if that helps nail down the problem. OS: Windows 10 (this same problem happened on Windows 7, also) CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Ram: 8GB Video Card: GTX 560 TI Anyone have any ideas?
  6. I remember a few years ago D1P did a server for Terraria. It was a blast. I'd like to do that again. Would anyone want to start up a server again now that 1.3 is out?
  7. Doh! Just realized I paid with my Paypal account instead of my Amazon credit card, so now I wont get any cash back. =\ Oh well.
  8. So when will amazon start to have them? EDIT: Welp. It was back in stock on their website so I just ended up buying one from them.
  9. I work at a computer repair shop and I've been having issue with a stubborn computer/printer. So I have a customer that brought in a laptop and a Lexmark x264dn printer. The computer suddenly just doesn't want to print. The print job will just stay stuck on "printing" but never actually print. I've done all the obvious things like restarting the spooling service, reinstalling drivers, new firmware, etc. I've tried using the printer over the network and I've also tried just using a USB cable. Same problem either way. I have also connected the printer to one of the shop's computers and it works fine. Our computer recognized it right away and printed it to with no problem. I then tried putting our printer to the customer's laptop and had no problem with that either. Could I get some ideas please? I'm running out of ideas.
  10. Anyone know what video I'm thinking of?

    I think it did go viral to some extent. I'm pretty sure I remember finding it on reddit videos when it came out.
  11. I remember watching the video on youtube for the first time maybe a couple of years ago. Basically all I remember was a guy that looked to be around 20, a little bit of a heavier guy, and white, and he played the piano while covering a song by Frank Sinatra. I'm not sure what song it was, as I don't listen to much Frank Sinatra. Anyone remember this video? I'd love to get a link to is so I can see it again.
  12. Buy Windows for dirt cheap

    Eh. I'm just going to buy a couple keys for normal Windows 8 Pro. I already have a flash drive with the ISO on it (yes I know it's not a big deal to make a new one lol) and it's not a big deal to just run some updates on a new install.
  13. Buy Windows for dirt cheap

    So if I got a Windows 8.1 N key, does that mean later on I'll have to find a Windows 8.1 N ISO? I feel like years from now when I may need to install again and I don't have the original ISO, it'll be hard to find the 8.1 N Iso online.
  14. As for the non-k CPU. I'd like to keep that option open at least just incase he changes his mind on it at a later time. The 3 monitors are 2 desktop monitors and his TV, so no gaming on 3 monitors will be done. And yeah, I'll probably add another actual HDD just for storage. I'm going to talk to him about that tonight. And also what are your thoughts on going with an i7 instead of an i5? My thoughts were that going with an i7 would be a bit of a better choice longterm as it's easier to update a video card than update a processor.
  15. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hQVfkL So it's been a bit since I've been researching parts and whatnot. Requirements: 1TB SSD support for 3 monitors, 2 actual monitors and 1 TV (his monitors have hdmi and dvi) Single video card, Nvidia Will only buy from Amazon and Newegg Anything you guys would change? He isn't going to overclock (at least not right away) so he doesn't need a CPU cooler. Also doesn't need a disc drive as he'll probably use the one from his previous computer.
