  1. in gta 5 120 fps feels like 70 because of micro stutter and after playing for 1 or 2 hours the game freezes up every 2 seconds for half a second after going back to creators update everything is fine. One thing i noticed was that it used 3gb of ram instead of 5.5gb on creators update while playing according to task manager which i think is the cause. I tried disabling full screen optimization but im almost %100 sure its because of the os ram allocation. Anyone else have this? Im on 6700k 1080 ti and 16gb of ram so this shouldn't happen.
  2. i have a decent power supply but its 3 years old and my current setup is almost at its voltage limit under max load so i want to get a new one, i currently have: 6700k 1.3v 4.6ghz oc evga 1080 ti sc2 2ghz on core 12.6ghz on mem oc asus z170-a motherboard 8x2 corsair dominator platinum 3ghz m.2 960 evo 1tb 4 140mm fans including cpu fan Im trying to go for max power efficieny for money, would a titanium or platinum be a better option over a high voltage because power supplys are most efficient at around 50-60% load
  3. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-27-led-qhd-gsync-monitor-black/5293502.p?skuId=5293502 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0JC-0004-00551&ignorebbr=1 same price, one is 24 one is 27 inches, 24inch version is 165hz while the 24 is 144, from reading reviews the 27inch has slightly more "overdrive" and "interlace pattern artifacts" is it something im going to notice? im upgrading vg248qe because i am getting a 1080 ti

  5. on newegg im trying to get a 1080 ti sc, i don't want it to potentially get sold out by friday and its already 30 dollars off, ive heard for 24 hours on friday is when the largest sale happens so im wondering if anyone remembers how much 1080s got discounted last year?

    Looking for good new 2k monitor

    Has to be: Under $600 2560x1440 144hz or more Would be nice if it has: gsync ips instead of tn Im not really sure what brand to go with but from reading reviews asus or benq seems to be the best?
  7. im assuming sc2 will just be hotter by a few c and have the same exact clock speed and performance when overclocked?
  8. looking to get 1080 ti ftw and it will be max overclocked current power supply is evga g2 650w that i have been using for 1.5 years and my current specs are 6700k 1.3v 4.6ghz evga 1070 ftw 8x2 3000mhz ram asus z170-a samsung m.2 960 evo 1tb
  9. So far i found this that i like: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487338&cm_re=1080_ti-_-14-487-338-_-Product But its 100 above msrp, are gigabyte varients as good? Im only looking for something that can reach 2ghz without reaching 80+ c while being decently quiet.

    sli 1070 or 1080 ti?

    what should I get? I already have 1 evga 1070 ftw my current specs 6700k 4.6ghz 1.3v asus z170-a motherboard 1x evga 1070 ftw 8x2gb 3000mhz ram m.2 960 evo 1tb ssd 650 evga g2 power supply 1070 would be cheaper but I think I would also have to get a better power supply and my current one would be fine with a 1080 ti
  11. It's writing like 5mb per minute when idle, that's like 2.5tb a year. I know it won't kill but it does contribute to its life time a little bit, can you make it write nothing or less? I only know its not superfetch, prefetch, or any program.
  12. i have corsair k70 and sometimes when i press y or o it types it 2 or 3 times instead of 1, is it possible to fix this somehow? I don't want to send my keyboard back for a small problem but its annoying
  13. Going from 60 to 144hz is insane, can someone describe what it feels like going from 1080p to 1440p?
  14. Just so that when you click the windows icon in the bottom left corner the menu doesn't come up, I don't feel like explaining why but I have my reason.
