    What is my bottleneck...

    I was watching the usage as reported by RTSS via MSI Afterburner. As soon as I swapped that Pentium G3258 to a Xeon E3-1231v3 my gpu usage went to a pinned 99% in all my games with vsync turned off (for some reason RTSS would never show 100% usage).

    What is my bottleneck...

    Not true. I gamed on a Pentium G3258 + GTX 970 combo for a week or so waiting for my real cpu to come in, and I would be hugely cpu bottlenecked many times without hitting anywhere near 100% cpu load as shown by the RTSS overlay. Or maybe the RTSS was measuring wrong. But it showing 50% cpu load doesn't mean you're not being bottlenecked, because it did it for me on that cpu.

    Angry Video Game Nerd and James Rolfe other projects

    His early nerd stuff was really amazing, god the Silver Surfer episode killed me. My favorite thing he did somewhat recently was when he and Mike Matei did a playthrough of Abobo's Big Adventure

    Nvidia to launch GTX 1660 Ti; 1060 Replacement?

    I'd rather they fire the assholes who keep jacking up the prices each gen tbh

    Nvidia to launch GTX 1660 Ti; 1060 Replacement?

    Meh last gen's $250 GTX 1060 was a GTX 980 plus 2GB VRAM for a much larger discount, while this sounds like GTX 1070 minus 2GB vram. I might still buy it since my 970 is getting long in the tooth after more than four years and there are at least two games coming this year that I'm dying to play at 60 fps (Sekiro Shadows Die Twice and Dying Light 2), but I can't say I'm excited about Turing. Especially with DLSS still not being implemented in anything but that Final Fantasy XV demo AFAIK.

    What's your favourite open world game?

    GTA V on PC because it looks incredible graphically and has so much funny shit to do

    Yakuza 0 on PS4 has been $19.99 MSRP for months now in the US. Since before the PC version launched.

    I understand that you're really uniformed with your console games are so expensive shtick. I buy smaller non AAA games for $2 to $6 all the time off PSN and older used games for $5 to $10 all the time from Gamestop, flea markets, pawn shops, etc. I don't know why PC gamers think they're the only ones whose platform has good sales and that people only pay $60 for PS4/XB1 games. Just take the L already.

    Way to cherry pick a grab bag of crap, especially games like Ar Nosurge that are long out of print. I showed you the games people want to play on PS4 are for sale for great prices.

    So what, big AAA games launch at $30 on Steam?

    ps5 specs

    Nonsense. The only console where games stay $60 is Switch. On PS4 and XB1 game prices drop quick. God of War cost me $22 on PSN (and was as low as $17 on Black Friday). Horizon Zero Dawn with all the DLC was available for $10 at Black Friday and is $14 right now on PSN. Spiderman is $40 right now at Target and will be $30 soon enough. The only two games I have seen hold $60 price tags long on PS4 are Red Dead Redemption 2 and Persona 5 (though P5 is regularly available for $30 now).

    You don't think PS5 will have a 9GHz i7 in it?

    Is a nbidia 960gpu good enough for modern gaming

    I agree fully with this. You will never run out of amazing older PC games that a 960 can demolish. Even a lot of the stuff it can't can still be played well by tweaking various settings to high and medium.
  14. God damn with RE2 and DMC5 it would be almost like getting the card for $40.
