  1. So I can't quite remember why I did this but I have 1 other account (I think it's only 1 lol)... most likely created it because I had a lot of doubts while doing my new rig and I didn't want to sound annoying by creating a lot of threads... anyway is there any specific way to delete one account?
  2. So couple of years ago, using system ram as VRAM was a bad idea as it would cause slowdowns and stuttering. But on the other hand with more recent ram, there aren't any major slowdowns even if you use system RAM at least from what I've seen. I noticed this with the recently released rise of the tomb raider, a guy was using a 980ti to play at 4k with all settings cranked up and the vram usage was pretty much reaching 100% which required the system to use system ram instead (this was observable as at 4k he was using 10gb ram while at 1080p only 6gb was being used) and suprisingly no slowdowns were visible (framerate at 4k was pretty much what a 980ti is capable of) So what's your opinion on this? I do realise VRAM is normally much faster than the ram that we buy for our systems but watching these videos did create some major doubts tbh. Here's the videos btw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ6f0OyNivE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMRoVoHUHfk
  3. So the major reason why I don't to upgrade my SO is because I don't have much time set everything up again which includes installing all the programs, put all my files on the HDD and so on. So If I do this "windows 10" update will I lose anything at all? *I meant will I lose any file at all in the title
  4. So DX12 is starting to become "mainstream" so to say and I saw somewhere that just cause 3 already used some DX12 features so here's my doubt... If I don't have windows 10, won't I be able to use these features? For example deus ex comes out (confirmed to have dx12 features in it) but I have windows 8, so I won't be able to use any dx12 features at all?
  5. So I need a tv show to start watching, something that involves a lot of mystery and thinking... I'm a big fan of LOST and it's probably my favorite tv show so If there's something similiar to this I would deeply apreciate it. I do also like action or comedy shows so if you know any good ones, please mention them (please no shaky camera tv shows though) although my main focus atm are mystery ones
  6. Just checked and on the sensors tab it says the same value that afterburner shows... which is strange as the GPU is advertised as only having 1241mhz core clock which makes me worry I started playing around with overclocking and such a few days back, is it possible that the overclock for some reason stayed even though I reset all the clocks on afterburner?
  7. So for some reason when playing my core clock is saying 1367mhz while on GPU-Z says the boost clock is 1241mhz... so what should I trust? It's a G1 980ti
  8. So I've been playing around with overclocking and such and I'm wondering what's considered a big overclock when it comes core clock and memory clock? Btw some optional questions a bit apart from the main question: 1º What % should the power limit be when you're overclocking? 2º Am I safe overclocking with the setup I have (it's in the sig) EDIT: forgot to mention, I'm more focusing on GPU OC's
  9. game of the year awards... was more focusing towards that as I'm betting that these two will be fighting for that award in a few months
  10. Noow that fallout is out, who do you think will win?
  11. Curious as I'd like to try out a IPS monitor someday (been only using TN panels for... pretty much ever)
  12. I mean the 980ti seems to be a good GPU to overclock (depending if you have luck or not) but for some reason the Fury X which is the competition has a hard time overclocking... and I'm wondering why? Despite having an nvidia GPU atm I have used AMD gpu's in the past they always have some great price/perfomance GPU's and well looking that it's hard to overclock one of their best gpu's... a bit dissapointing although without oc the fury X is already a beast
  13. It was a galaxy s2... well based on the replys gonna try out the rice method but I really sense that the phone is gone for good
  14. So uhm... let's say someone is dumb enough (certainly not me) to leave the phone the whole night inside a toilet because it just fell down there without anyone noticing... is there even a slight hope or a method that it might work again?
  15. Don't wait for pascal unless you are patient enough since the high end cards won't come until Q4 2016/Q1 2017 not to mention it won't be the super ultra evolution that a lot of people are expecting... will it be faster? Well of course and I'm sure 4K will benefit a lot from it considering it's the focus nowadays but the evolution we will be seeing will be the same evolution we see with every generation of nvidia's cards... So is the 980ti worth it? Well if you have the money and you need a gpu asap than there's no better choice
  16. Just wondering if there is such a thing
  17. LOL i actually saw a post really similiar to that on the witcher 3 forums... something about a beggar... at least the writing is really similiar but still, gotta know what he's smoking
  18. same monitor, whenever i change the refresh rate from 60 to 144hz the brightness specially changes
  19. Whenever I change form 60hz to 144hz the brightness and I think the colors are a bit changed? Why is that and is the change negative? If yes is there anyway to avoid it or to return it to normal?
  20. for gaming right? seems like a pretty good setup to me
  21. 500$ is quite the amount of money and giving 500$ more for a feature that maybe won't make a big diffrence to you (as you said tearing isn't a big issue atm) than maybe you won't need it as tearing is most usefull when you've already had a problem with tearing to begin with. Check out some reviews of both and see if the extra 500$ will be truly worth it in your situation or not
  22. Well if you have a nice setup that can play most games at pretty high framerates maybe g-sync won't be needed.. I have a 980ti and I barely have screen tearing even at games where my framerate is over my monitors refresh rate... not to mention at 144hz it's really hard to notice screen tearing but this is solely based on my experience and this can differ ofc although if you say it doesn't disturb you right now than maybe it won't be a wise purchase. I'm sure the smoothness of g-sync is amazing specially at framerates lower than 60 (which is where tearing can be observed quite easily IMO)... In short words, if you have the bucks to do it without big problems than go for it but if your budget is a bit limited and you'd need to get a little extra money here and there, well than I probably woudn't do it specially considering that screen tearing doesn't seem to be a problem for you as of now
  23. So before a bunch of 4K users start bashing me, I'm doing this question for a specific reason and not because I think 4K is bad or anything (that would be ridiculous) The reason I'm asking this is because there's a bunch of software which can supersample your resolution to 4K similiar resolutions like Nvidia's DSR for example, but today I've seen something diffrent... As you'd probably know the battlefront beta is out and I noticed in the settings you can change the resolution scaling to 200% which pretty much gives a resolution similiar to 4K (and looks really good aswell) So my question is, If one can do that with a 1080p screen what's the point of paying the extra $$$ for a 4K monitor with software like this? Is the real thing that diffrent? Actually considered getting a 4K monitor since 4K... well it has a lot of pixels but questions like these are making me think twice...
