  1. @AMDlover or you could get a refurb GTX 670 for $10 more (out of stock right now), or a refurb GTX 590 for $10 more....... BTW I highly doubt this 580 is new, they'd have long sold their stock of 580s, I guess it could be a unit that was intended for a giveaway or something that fell through though.
  2. I'd just back up the apps with Helium, back up the important files to your computer, and then do a reset.
  3. Yes. We saw these benchmarks months ago from all the relevant tech outlets. Not sure why a redditor posting it makes it news. http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/3DMark-API-Overhead-Feature-Test-Early-DX12-Performance http://www.anandtech.com/show/9112/exploring-dx12-3dmark-api-overhead-feature-test http://www.legitreviews.com/looking-at-directx-12-performance-3dmark-api-overhead-feature-test_160936 http://www.legionhardware.com/articles_pages/3dmark_api_overhead_test_dx11_vs_dx12_cpu_performance_preview.html I guess it's semi interesting that they showed it with older hardware but....not really news worthy.
  4. I mean we can make great guesses as to what the actual reasons are, but in the end we may never know. Nvidia probably wants at least their big league card to have a visual cue, so people always know from looking at it that it's an Nvidia graphics card.
  5. AFAIK there's only one right now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157588
  6. EVGA isn't allowed to either if you're looking at it from that point of view. They aren't selling this on Titan X, they're selling it as a stand alone aftermarket cooling solution. And if Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Galax, etc wanted to sell their heatsink as a stand alone cooling solution, or bundle it with the Titan X, Nvidia probably wouldn't stop them. It's the same thing Gigabyte did with the Titan black, where they included their Windforce heatsink in the box but you had to put it on yourself since Nvidia won't let them sell a Titan with a custom cooling solution already on it.
  7. Arctic Cooling has validated that their Accelero II, III, and IV lines are compatible with the Titan X. http://www.arctic.ac/us_en/products/cooling/vga.html
  8. I mean Arctic Cooling has had options available for a long time already...but I guess more is better when it comes to options.
  9. Do you have MSI afterburner or the rivatuner OSD open? It's been known to sometimes conflict with games and cause various issues.
  10. I'm not upset, but then again I'm no longer inclined to buy/play it. I mean I was never hugely drawn towards the witcher series in the first place, however with how the graphics looked in 2013 I figured I'd give it a chance anyway. Now.......no incentive to go for it. It still looks good, it just doesn't look amazing.
  11. Enlighten me, how does that mean I care? Is a WHQL certification the only means of giving us good drivers, have there been no good drivers that lack a WHQL certification? A company can simply hold itself to a high standard, and this isn't the only way of getting solid drivers No, I really don't care about that stupid certification.
  12. Isn't that driver exclusive to Windows 10? I do agree with most of what's been posted above, I could care less about the WHQL certification if the drivers are solid.
  13. Most Z97 boards use additional chipset lanes for M.2, not ones from your CPU. And on Z97 most m.2 slots only have 2 lanes, not 4. This means that even if there were an m.2->SFF 8643 card available for Z97 right now it'd still only use 2x pcie 2.0 lanes that have more latency added because of it using chipset lanes and not CPU lanes, and as a result the SSD would not run as well as it has the potential to. The product page says 4 lanes because the only M.2->SFF 8643 cards available are made for X99, and X99 has 4 CPU pcie lanes for the m.2 slot. The GPU usually uses the CPU pcie lanes, so it would have no effect. And even if the GPU had a few less lanes it wouldn't matter since no single consumer GPU currently available uses anywhere near the full bandwidth of PCIE 3.0 x16. Even if you were to run the GPU at PCIE 3.0 X4 you'd see very little if any degradation in performance in most scenarios. Just trust me on this, buy the PCIE add-in version instead of the clumsy m.2-> SFF 8643 version.
  14. @Epicness9138 fairly sure most m.2 on Z97 take/use 2 lanes, so the SSD 750 would run considerably slower on a Z97 pcie 2.0 x2 m.2 slot. And the PCIE version would use 4 lanes. Also there's no m.2 add-in card that currently works with Z97 unless I'm mistaken. Z97 usually routes the m.2 slot through the chipset rather than using the CPUs lanes, so it adds latency. @MegaDave91 @ManIkWeet Aren't m.2 slots on Z97 usually limited to 2x pcie 2.0 lanes? http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2015/04/17/msi-reveals-m-2-to-turbo-mini-sas-card/1 Where only X99 boards have 'tubo m.2' with 4x pcie 3.0 lanes? Overall from what I can tell you're recommended against purchasing the m.2->SFF 8643-> SSD version unless you're on X99.
  15. @NuroKnight I think I'd categorize it as a peripheral, something you use to interact with your computer.
  16. Not so much overkill, more so that you're spending $200 more per card for a relatively small amount of performance. I mean if you're spending $500-$700 then, imo, you should go for the 295x2 over the single GTX 980.
  17. A single GTX 970 should be fine at medium settings, and if you decide you want to crank up the settings then you can always buy a second one later on.
  18. @KAKA It depends on what games you want to play and what settings you want to play them at. A single GTX 970 or R9 290X might give you those kinds of framerates at medium settings, but if you want to play at high-max settings then you'll want to have 2x970's or 2x290X's/295x2more price efficient before rebate
  19. Overall this is the usual base price for the 500R, but right now you get a $10 promo gift card and can apply for the $20 rebate after purchasing it so the total cost to you would be $69.99. The lowest this case has gone before, even with rebate, has been $79.98 so this is a pretty great deal. I personally don't like the mesh on the side rather than a side panel window, however I'm sure there are people who like it and if you prefer you can buy the metal side panel from Corsair without the fan mesh for $20 and still come out $10 ahead. EDIT:This deal is available for both the black and white variants. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139010
  20. So with the radeon triple gpu card you weasel out by saying it wasn't released and we should all know you meant a card that was released because , and with the Voodoo triple gpu card you weasel out by saying you specifically meant radeon.
  21. Okay fine. 3DFX's Voodoo line had dual gpu cards, triple gpu cards, and even quad gpu cards. And those were all released.
  22. You didn't say released lol, you said and the EAH3850 X3 Trinity was, and therefore still is. But if you want to back out and show us how little your word is worth then by all means go for it.
  23. The game also works on integrated graphics, that doesn't mean I'm gonna take out my dedicated graphics card to intentionally make my experience with it worse.
