  3. Why do you consider this to be a bad experience? Sure, it's unfortunate, but seems to me that Mediamarkt handled your complaint more than adequately, and offered you plenty of options for compensation?
  4. Headphone Recommendations @ ~$250

    I know you said that you would prefer a set of open-back cans, but how about the Meze 99 Neo? They're closed back, but they don't seal as tightly as say, a set of ATH-M50Xs, without impacting the sound intimacy too much. Besides looking absolutely gorgeous - almost only constructed using metal while still being very light weight and comfy to wear for long periods of time - they have amazing sound fidelity, especially for music, but certainly also for gaming, and they're easy to drive. They have very slightly different stats and sound stage from my 99 Classics, to keep the price down, but I've heard both, and it's not that noticeable. I'd say my gaming/music ratio is about the same as yours - they serve me very well in PUBG, easily being able to pinpoint footsteps and gunshots, and make everything on Spotify Premium sound magical. Good review here: https://headfonics.com/2017/08/the-99-neo-by-meze/ PS. I own a pair of AKGs (K701) as well, and the Mezes are on a whole 'nother level. Also more expensive, of course.
  5. Such a nice result. Nice work!
  6. I cant see g sync?

    Make sure G-sync is enabled in the nVidia control panel, and that you have V-sync disabled in the games you're playing. But G-sync really only comes to its right at lower FPS - 30-60'ish, so find a game that can push your hardware to such extremes, and the benefits should become more obvious.
  7. How can I download GTA5?

    You could also get an external optical drive that just connects via USB. Works fine, and they're usually not very expensive. Good to have lying around, in the rare case that you need to install something via disc.

    This game is absolutely gorgeous.
  9. Most Wanted Upcoming Games

    My list goes sorta like this (by release date): Destiny 2 (October 24) Assassin's Creed Origins (October 27) - Maybe meh, not sure I like the new approach. The combat is sort of off-putting. Wolfenstein II (October 27) Star Wars: Battlefront II (November 17) Far Cry 5 (Febuary 27, 2018) Red Dead Redemption 2 (Spring 2018) - The only PS4-exclusive game in my list, and the only game I'd want to purchase a PS4 for. Anthem (Fall, 2018) FAR OUT: Cyberpunk 2077 (CD Projekt Red) Death Stranding (That one with Mads Mikkelsen)
  10. Forza 7 is live if you bought the Ultimate edition! And for anyone that might have been wondering, the target FPS is no longer limited to 30/60!
  11. Whole thing downloaded - no day one patch download faff.
  12. Yeah, it prompted me to pick a drive where there was at least 95GB of free space to even start the download. Not sure if it's only downloading the 45GB now, and the 50GB patch on the 29th though.
  13. Currently preloading Forza 7, so might actually be ready to play on Friday.
  14. Made a little video of the Forza Motorsport 7 DEMO in 1440p @ 60 FPS - going over some of the graphical settings, doing a quick benchmark, and at the end you can enjoy some fantastic gameplay of me, sliding around on the Ring.
  15. It's running quite nicely for me at 2560x1440. I turned off all the Dynamic stuff, and manually set everything in the Advanced tab to the highest setting (including 8x MSAA) - it looks great! I'm getting a steady 60 FPS, so I think there's potential for more - I just hope we'll be able to unlock the FPS in the full version. I've only encountered a few hiccups during gameplay, probably to load in some of the gorgeous scenery. But they're rare and far apart.
