    AHVA - IPS

    Would help to know what you want out of a monitor. I have a XB271HU.
  2. 110c is basically the threshold that Intel set to totally shut down your CPU. 105c is extremely bad.

    VLC or MPC-HC?

    I've been an MPC-HC guy forever. Don't really like VLC. All their default keybinds are weird.

    Graphics card VS CPU 'bottlenecking' in games

    Not many have done testing with RAM speeds on W3, but for Overwatch going from 1600MHz to 3000MHz RAM can net you over 100+ FPS, everything else in the system being the same.
  6. Why would you want to..insulate? What heat loss are you trying to prevent.
  7. RIP, getting an emergency call to go into work in 4 hours when you've been awake for close to 32 hours

    1060 3gb- 1080p ultra+aa or 1440p high no aa

    60-80fps won't be much difference, there's no being uncomfortable with it. I would say the minimum would be 100fps before you notice going down to 60fps and being a bit not used to it.

    60 to 75 isn't noticeable, but 60 to 144 definitely is. Don't fret it, the 1300x should be able to get you 100+ FPS on most games providing your GPU can keep up Yeah, stay 1080p.

    Are you saying you've never had a 1080p monitor? There's like 0 1080p monitors under 20" unless you count laptops screens, which isn't the topic.

    Only if the textures have the finer details even available. 1440p is 78% more pixels than 1080p. Unless you can overclock your 1060 for 78% more performance, you'll be getting significantly lower FPS at 1440p. And no, there is no such thing as being more accurate at 1440p. It doesn't even make sense. If anything, 1080p at 24" is the perfect size for FPS games. It's small enough that you don't need to move your head to see everything, and at that resolution you can achieve high FPS, which is significantly more important than resolution for competitive esports. A 1060 is not quite enough for 1440p, so stick with 1080p.

    AAA Games help

    I never said Blizzard was indie... I said if going by RoyalGamer's logic where a company is owned by another company, then their claim of CDPR being indie is also not true. CDPR is owned by CDP. Blizzard is owned by Activision Blizzard. Neither is indie, that is my point. RoyalGamer's point is that CDPR is indie. Which they aren't.

    And so does Blizzard. The issue is not whether who has creative freedom etc, the issue is RoyalGamer's definition of indie.

    And neither is CDPR, which is my point. No they're not, they are owned by Activision Blizzard, not Activision. Just like how CDPR is owned by CDP. That does not make CDPR an indie company, which is exactly my point. I never made the claim that they were indie.

    Indie means independent, but it is used differently in game development. By your literal definition, Blizzard is also indie cos they don't get financial help from anyone. And if you think TW3 was shitty, well then we have nothing else to talk about. It's clear your own tastes in gaming is "indie", outside mainstream as TW3 is likely the most positively awarded game of all time.
