  1. Okay, I was wrong with saying "nothing" but those are only 3 games 1080p or above out of 800+ games. That is ridiculous.
  2. On last gen consoles, everything was up-resed nothing, NOTHING ran at 1080p, even 30 FPS
  3. Glad I saw this as I'm going to be purchasing a 4790k within the coming week. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Sleep is for pussies...
  5. Yeh, I'm 15 as well, never really felt I need to go out with anyone. There is this one girl that I think might like me and we're really good friends but I'm not too sure whether to advance our relationship.
  6. I have checked other games (BF4, TF2) they also keep the CPU at 95-100% and GPU at 40-60%. I'm pretty sure it is the CPU
  7. Thanks for the great help guys! One question; what motherboard should I go with that has SLI capabilities as well as USB 3.0? Edit: I found out it uses the same chipset as the 4790k so I can use the same motherboard I was planning on using; the Gigabyte Z97X-SLI.
  8. Ah, thank you for confirming my assumption. I do plan on editing video and already do so I can't wait to get a much faster processor and get better render times
  9. I've had my computer for a few years now and when I first built it I wasn't that computer-savvy, you could say. I had some terrible ATI graphics card that was laying around that didn't need and PCI-E pin power connectors and a FX-4100. Around a year after building it I upgraded to a EVGA GTX 660 Ti SC 3GB. I saw a massive improvement in performance in BF4, which was the game I used to play a lot and still do a bit. Recently, while I have been playing BF: Hardline I have been getting quite varying framerates, sometime it can be in the high 80s and can dip to the 30s (this is on low). I opened up afterburner and noticed my CPU was hovering around 90-100% while my GPU usage was only 60%. I'm pretty sure this is evidence of bottlenecking but I just wanted to check with this great community first before either getting a GTX 970 or a new motherboard and a I7-4790k. Any help would be appreciated.

  11. I found LTT through NCIX 's video on how to get your USB drive to be bootable, which must of been a few years ago now. Linus, I love what you do and hope you keep at it. Also, hope the winner has a great time on the surface/laptop/desktop that they win
