  1. Yes true but the 1080TI is only averaging about $500 on ebay and that is what I paid ($500). I'm not upset, it was a fair deal in my opinion. I could have maybe got a bit more but I wasn't too concerned and the Vega runs better with my CPU I feel. Even with slightly less frames (I only play PUB G and Insurgency so there is hardly any difference in FPS) it runs smoother with Insurgency than the 1080 TI did as there is less of a bottleneck I think and that game is CPU heavy. I do wish it was the LE model but it was the only offer I had on my card and could not find too much info on the Vega so I just decided to go for it. The only info I could find prior is that it is close to a 1080 which is exactly what I was after. Slightly less card and some cash.
  2. Posted on another forum. just trying to get some info. Anyone have one of these?I just got one in trade and I like it quite a bit but I can't find much info on this specific card.I do see there is an LE version and a NON LE. Mine is the non LE and the only difference I can spot is not having the RGB shroud around the fans.Was wondering if there were any other differences and how would this card compare to other Vega 64's out there?I traded a Strix 1080TI for the Vega plus $200 from him. I feel it was an excellent choice and fits my system better as I am using a 4790k still and I do not notice a huge drop in performance coming from the 1080TI. Some CPU dependent games actually run slightly smoother with the Vega 64.
  3. Well AM4 launched Sept. 2016 and that is a 3 full years. Nobody knows what AM5 will be like or how long it will support but I am inclined to believe another few years. Much better than literally zero possible upgrade with my 4790k.
  4. Have been wondering this a lot myself. I just upgraded GPU to 1080ti (from a 970) and I feel it is time to upgrade the rest (i7-4790k). I do not like the fact that I literally will have to upgrade everything so I have been leaning toward AMD. I hear their chip support is several years vs. intel giving hardly any. I figured I could buy the first next gen chipset and then in 5 years still be able to upgrade the CPU to the latest at the time without having to do an entire new build.

  6. I have a Phanteks PH-TC14PE and IIRC it outperforms most AIO's or at least is on par. The downside it is the most god awful giant looking fan of all time. That is what I have with m 4790-K OC'd to 4.6 (my mobo sucks) and the temps are more than ok.
  7. One more post and I will stop but this long drawn out story is relevant. This is the company and game I thought of immediately when I saw this. I will try to say as brief as possible. I participated in a Kickstarter promising and literally guaranteeing certain things to happen (there is video evidence of the guarantees). The game was supposed to be a next gen Socom 2 developed on PC and ported to PS4. NOW I know Kickstarter is not a guarantee, even if the Devs say that it is (lie) in order to sell a dream but back then I was not so aware. The KS was a success and when they got the check everything changed, The CEO started firing people, not paying people/having them quit and then the face of the entire project (A former Zipper Interactive Employee aka The Creative Director of Socom 2) left the studio. The problem is that they hid this information because they knew what would have happened. Some fans literally pieced the puzzle together themselves, started asking questions and forced the studio to release a statement confirming everything on their forums. That is when the "review bombs" happened. Rightfully so, we now were left with absolutely nothing. A broken shell of a game on steam EA without a single employee to finish the game. We got scammed big time. The game was horrible and a complete bust with no refunds from an LLC. There were some community members who volunteered to finish the job and they are still working on that however the game is a mess and TBH I am pretty sure it will never hit console where the dream was sold (most socom fans who donated are on console). They even released a statement recently that was carefully worded but essentially read we have no idea what we got ourselves into and don't know how to port a game. But I will give credit that the game while still unacceptable is better than it was before. This KS was 4 and a half years ago BTW so now a game with mostly negative reviews for a very good reason will turn into mostly positive? Since the game is so small, barely has any reviews at all and most of them were "bombed" these guys get a free pass for a mostly positive game that is actually dog shit?
  8. You can opt out sure. But they are not counting reviews which they determine to not be valid reviews which is technically a form of fraud as stated. You may have also missed the Q&A where a random user asks if their review is posted at the same time as a "review bomb" and happens to be negative (and on topic/legit) will theirs count? And the answer is no it will not. I can somewhat see kind of where they are coming from to protect developers but at the end of the day the Devs did something wrong and IMO this is nothing more than a shady way for them to manipulate the system for their own personal gain. Edit: Saw a valid comment on steam: What about the POSITIVE reviews that say nothing more than "nice" or "this game cured my cancer"? Will those be removed from the overall as well? This shouldn't bother me as much as it does but I do consider this fraud and as gamers/consumers we are already allowing them all to give us the shaft with their barely playable games being released unfinished with tons of issues and with "future DLC"/battle passes.
  9. That is still a valid review. When I review a game I also look at the company. There are a lot of shady indie devs out there. Or in your case, a developer who will abandon a project. I completely disagree with Valve on this. DRM is also part of the experience. People can review a product how they want. TBH idk if it is possible but I hope a class action suit comes out of this. They are essentially dictating what I can say on my review that I paid money for. There is also a major conflict of interest since Valve makes money from each sale on their store. Seems like a very bad move to me. People can have whatever reason they want to dislike a product if I buy a game and do not like it because I spilled my drink on my KB when loading it that is my personal experience.
  10. Kind of confused on this. Maybe I am reading it wrong but it sounds like shit games will benefit a lot from this. So Steam is dictating what my review can say? That is kind of BS, if a game sucks it sucks and especially since Valve benefits from sales. Of course they want 100% positive reviews so others buy the game.
  11. I did play CS:GO for a while but now I have Insurgency Sandstorm. If you like CSGO it is worth checking out IMO. It is a lot like CS but better to me.
  12. Following and I also say wait it out. That is what I will be doing. I spent over $100 on some BS vibrating/heated chair and it is complete trash. I sit all day at work and they have Steelcase here but they are very very expensive as well but I can sit for 8+ hours comfortably and at home I can literally feel my spine molding in horrible ways in my chair. I guess you get what you pay for and this is something that is impotant IMO for comfort and health.
  13. From the couple of games I played it did seem much better coded than Pub with better graphics too but I still love Pub G, even with all it's issues. Just tired of it I probably have over 1,500 hours in that.
  14. I may actually revisit some old games. I had a ton of fun with Chivalry: Medieval Warfare but quit playing because the graphics were horrible and I don't think they had a mic system.
  15. I did try Apex on the Console. I think I actually DL it on PC but never got around to trying it. Will definitely check it out, seemed kind of cool but idk how I feel about the 3 man teams. The teams in games just keep getting smaller and smaller lol. I don't think I could play Minecraft though. My kid has it on PS4 and I find it very uninteresting. Thanks for the suggestions though.
