  1. well I was looking at the fury 4gb hbm and it's 259usd and trades blows with a 1070 and nearly beats a 1080 in directx12 and vulkan titles. https://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11247-03-40G/dp/B0196LWL3W/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1480554704&sr=1-1&keywords=r9+fury&linkCode=sl1&tag=sciestud09-20&linkId=7e91402f44ccc4dc012c7f4c27e97f72
  2. is that rx480 worth the money? I'm planning on building a pc for my brother and he will start getting money around christmas. Maybe by then nvidia and amd will have nicer cards (vega and volta) Should I wait? I understand it's a stock cooler but is it worth it over spending an extra 50 or so on a better cooler?
  3. SLI

    Like @RadiatingLight said. It really depends on the games you will be playing. Some games support sli and support it very well while others do not. It gets to a point where it's hit or miss. In some cases performance may even drop when running in sli so it's really dependent on the titles that you plan on playing. Generally it should do well but there will be some game where it will not scale whatsoever. So if you're contempt with some game refusing to use the second card or even lowering performance that's fine. But when games are optimized amazingly you could get a 50% or even 75% boost in performance and makes it all the more worth it. Do this. Look up the games you plan on playing with an sli setup and compare the benchmarks with the 1080. If you're happy with the results go for it. But just be aware with the issues sli comes with. (Higher Thermals, More power consumption, and compatibility.) Other than that happy gaming!
  4. I have done that and will continue to do so. I once again will reiterate that I am not saying "wow these graphics suck and therefore the game sucks" I feel like in a community full of knowledgeable pc gamers simply voicing an opinion on graphical fidelity would be easier. Final Verdict: I don't like the look of fallout 4. The engine they use is great for being modder friendly but it looks terrible. Having spoken to many people playing upwards of 2k hours or so have said the game is not worth the money they're charging. Looking at the steam reviews with others voicing their opinion with many details tells me more than enough that bethesda could have done much better if given more time and thought. Thank you very much friends!
  5. It's not that I only care about graphics it's more I am surprised and expected more in graphical fidelity plain and simple.
  6. It's not an argument. It never was. Your statement is pointless.
  7. I don't think that's the case but I appreciate the concern you too have a wonderful day!
  8. this everything this guy says. This^
  9. Yes make sure he shows a test and check it out for yourself.
  10. I am not in fact trolling. I do appreciate the thought. I just don't like the fact that they are still recycling the same old engine and have not moved on to a better one. I think the game looks bad and that's that. Have a wonderful day.
  11. stalker isn't linear. Saying crysis is linear is a stretch. Yes skyrim does in fact look a lot better even without the mods haha. It's all preference and I'm stating that the game looks terrible (which it is). Haha.
  12. can you take a few pictures of all the cables plugged in?
  13. crysis series, tomb raider series, stalker series, metro series. Hell even skyrim remastered looks better. I don't find the game to be appealing and never will. Old engine old look. It's more of me personally but once again I expected more haha.
  14. I played with a 1080. The issue is the engine is just plain bad. I understand that its more modder friendly but even after that fact it still looks bad for a game released near the end of 2016. Crysis, metro, stalker, tombraider, etc look far more pleasing. Hell i find skyrim more attractive than fallout 4. It is a shame because it had so much going for it but failed in so many departments.
  15. My xfx black rx 480 does amazing. Cooling is stellar and the fans rev up rarely even when under load. I recommend checking out jay2centz he has a video on the card and it's a pretty good overview.
