  1. I am getting 60FPS + is pretty much all games at 1440P with a FX-8350 & GTX 1070. I will be upgrading to AMD Zen or Kaby/ Cannon lake at some point early next year, but my FX-8350 has actually served me well the last 4 years. Nothing to complain about.
  2. While we are on the topic, what do you guys think of the RX 480? I am going to be donating my AMD FX-8350 rig to my brother here in a few months, but naturally keeping my graphics card (GTX 1070), so he is going to need a card. Debating between an RX 480 and a GTX 1060. He games at 1080P so he (probably) won't need a card with more than 4GB VRAM.
  3. Ah yes, the Nvidia and AMD fanboys haha. There isn't a tech forum on the planet that doesn't have Intel/AMD/Nvidia fanboys.
  4. Oh for sure, it's unavoidable. In fact, I have discovered one of the most difficult positions to be in is when you really don't choose a specific side, because then you get attacked from both sides, haha. The people over on Tek Syndicate (as in the community) were actually quite understanding and inclusive. It was the people running the site that often weren't, unfortunately.
  5. Wow. Everything over here on the LTT side is so bright! I am a former Tek Syndicate forum user. While I made an account here on LTT several years ago, I never really used it. Tek Syndicate became my "internet home." in light of recent events, I am distancing myself from Tek Syndicate as a whole, as the primary people that I liked over there have moved on (Wendell & Qain). I am going to try and make LTT my "internet home," for technology discussion. I actually have been watching LTT on YouTube long before I started watching Tek Syndicate, but for whatever reason was always more active on the Tek Syndicate forums. I like how the LTT channel is a bit more "inclusive" of differing viewpoints. While I am sure their are no shortage of "Apple haters," on this forum, Logan on the Tek Syndicate side was so vehemently apposed to that company (and others) that he often was contradictory and hypocritical when other companies made the same mistakes as Apple (he would often give other companies a free pass). Just so you know, I use OS X and Windows primarily, and I dabble with Linux, so I am very inclusive of all technology brands and operating systems. I just love all tech in all of it's different forms. I hope to have a more active role in the community here on LTT, and that LTT remains a little bit more "drama-free" than the experience I had with Tek Syndicate. Despite liking Qain/ Wendell & the community, I found Logan's grandiose behavior to be a little off-putting. Look forward to seeing you guys in the forums.
  6. This may sound shallow, but... the aesthetics. It aesthetically looks much better than many comparable Windows gaming laptops (Alienware cough cough). Its not overly flashy... its just right.
