    The division crash to desktop

    Thank-you for your suggestions. It turns out that disabling SLi allowed me to select the nvidia shadow settings while allowing the game to not crash. The strange thing is that after re-enabling SLi the game doesn't crash anymore.

    The division crash to desktop

    Hello. Hopefully theirs some knowledgeable people put there who can help me solve the issue I'm having. I have 2 GTX 1080's in SLi, 16Gb RAM and a 4790k OC to 4.7GHz. The issue I'm having is if I select either one of the nvidia shadow options (PCSS or HFTS) then I get a crash to desktop. If I don't then everything is completely fine. Does anybody out there know how to fix this stupid issue?

    Need Help Deciding (1070 vs 1080)

    The simple answer, as always, is to upgrade to the best GPU you can afford at the time. You CPU is more than capable of handling whatever you throw at it. Both GPUs will be able to handle (with exception) every game out there at there max in game setting at 60fpss+. What you buy should come down to how often you plan on upgrading and how much you want to spend. Buy the one that best suits your wallet right now.

    Need Help Deciding (1070 vs 1080)

    Depends on how often you want to upgrade. For example, if you want to upgrade in say 2 years then get the 1070. If you want to upgrade in 3 years then get the 1080. Also at the resolution you game at it wouldn't have mattered if you were using a i5 or i7. (I know you have a 4790k) Neither would bottleneck the card. That's a misconception that many like to have.

    GTX 1080 ROG Problem, HELP!!!

    Thats good. RMA the card. It sounds like a voltage issue when boosting.

    GTX 1080 ROG Problem, HELP!!!

    Have a look at what the led lights are doing where you plugged in the pci-e power cables. They should be white and static.

    Creative Labs ZxR Soundcard Inquiry - URGENT help :(

    Its not that I'm disagreeing with you its that I'm pointing out the fact that all sound card makers, DAC makers etc do the exact same thing. Colouring as you put it is still an opinion. Its about personal preference. Again a fact. Its probably best that we just agree to disagree and move on :-)

    Creative Labs ZxR Soundcard Inquiry - URGENT help :(

    Going back to the comment on the sound card my point is this. Different DAC's sound different depending on there parts and what you have connected to them. Sound cards sound different for the same reasons. Headphones and speakers sound different depending on there parts and there setup. Saying that a particular brand of sound card in this case makes everything sound colourful isn't a fact. Its your opinion and the sound colour you went on about could easily be a result of whatever headphones or speakers you have plugged into it as well as what ever software your using to drive it. Basically its all about preference. Cables on the other hand don't really do anything unless there carrying a purely analogue signal.

    But they are different. No matter how much people argue there not, they are. The fact they use different parts and cost different amounts demonstrates it.

    Sorry to disagree but any time a dac decodes a digital signal back to analogue it adds something. If you don't believe me then look it up. If they didn't there wouldn't be such a large difference in there pricing just for starters.

    Creative Labs ZxR Soundcard Inquiry - URGENT help :(

    All sound cards and separate dacs etc add noise (color etc) when they decode the digital signal back to analogue. Headphones, speakers etc also add noise (color etc) when they play back the decoded sound. Its just a thing.

    I don't know what you mean by 'color the sound'?

    I haven't used on board sound for many years so I couldn't really comment on it. I did upgrade from a creative titanium x-fi and there is a difference. You can also change out the included amps if you don't like there sound reproduction. (I think I said that right)
