    What is this Worth?

    This makes no sense. If you can't prove that either one is legit or not legit, there's nothing to worry about buying from either one. Except for the extra money you're putting up. Just because one is cheap and the other is not, doesn't just mean the cheaper one is coming from a criminal. Until you prove this, no offense, but you make absolutely no sense.

    You're not answering my question. How can you prove that the $100 keys are NOT also sold by criminals? ALL keys are sold from websites on the internet.

    How can you prove the keys being sold on that website above for $133.60 aren't a part of this "grey market" that you speak of? Both are websites on the internet.

    So you're saying that this $13.87 Windows 10 Home Key is the grey market? I don't see much difference between that $13.87 Windows 10 Home Key and this $119.99 Windows 10 Home Key. Both are sold online from random websites. The only difference I see is $106.12. And that $119.99 link wants $13.61 for shipping. That's $133.60. Now the difference is $119.73. Only a fool would pay that. That's the price of a brand new CPU or GPU.

    I don't expect much more... "I built this PC with the intention of giving a lucky gamer a better deal than they'd find at a place like Bestbuy." I totally agree. Especially if said people don't have a clue what they're doing. Since when is Windows 10 Home $100? "I built this PC with the intention of giving a lucky gamer a better deal than they'd find at a place like Bestbuy." I wouldn't say I'm the lucky one. So you're saying 45 minutes to an hour to setup and install Windows and drivers and updating the BIOS is used? Pretty sure Bestbuy does the exact same thing. I'm willing to bet they even ran a few games for a few minutes like I did. I dunno about you but I'd rather know that games run well on my PC than not knowing. They won't mind it at all. Pretty sure they know the direction to take already.

  7. What are you talking about? There's games currently playable on Epic Games. Some are free, some cost money. There are more games coming soon. Some free, some cost money. I have no clue what you are talking about running in circles. The games that are already released are right there in the store. The games coming soon are coming soon. Why would anyone rerelease games over and over when they are already released or coming soon?

    Stuttering in Battlefield 1 with a good pc

    Try this. Lock your fps at 60. Play BF1 for around 10 minutes and see if the micro stuttering is gone. Try to record 1 minute of the 10 minute game play around the middle of the 10 minutes. This isn't a solution, it's a troubleshooting step. Do this and report this 1 minute game play video to me. Make sure you are using MSI AB.

    extremely low gpu usage in fortnite

    This is completely normal in Fortnite with your PC specs in 1080p. You have 8 threads in your CPU when Fortnite won't be using much of them at all. So your GPU won't do much more when your CPU is already doing all the work needed. I don't see why you want your 1080 to do much more when you say you are getting 144 fps. Anything over 144 fps won't show up on your monitor anyways when your Hz is 144. And the fps dropping in those tower areas or when a ton is going on is just how Fortnite performs for anyone. That's the game, not your PC. If you really want your GPU usage to go up(why you would I don't know), you could try getting a 1440p 144Hz monitor. That'll definitely make the GPU usage go up. Then there's also running your RAM on an XMP profile from your BIOS if your motherboard allows it. I don't recommend this though if your game already runs the way it's running. Turning down individual graphic settings is just to improve fps. Not sure why you want to increase GPU usage in Fortnite when you already achieve 144 fps. Increasing your GPU usage is not going to make your fps drops in those tower areas go away. That's the game optimization itself. Same thing happens in GTA 5 in certain areas in the city. On ANY PC. This PC drops fps to literally 50's-60's in the city using an i7-8700K and a 1080. It's due to the game optimization itself. Watch from 5:27-5:35. The moment he drives outside the city towards the beach his fps jumps way up. Same thing is going on in Fortnite.

    Stuttering in Battlefield 1 with a good pc

    And the micro stuttering is in the campaign right?
  11. Not sure what you mean here. How does having only 15 titles mean you are unable to give away free games? It seems what you are saying is that devs will eventually keep them from putting up what they've been putting up, "pretty decent titles". Am I correct on that? As in, if Steam can't do it, or if GOG can't do it, or all these other places held back by devs can't do it, how can Epic Games do it? Is this what you are saying?

    Stuttering in Battlefield 1 with a good pc

    If it's noticeable and annoying then of course it matters. This is exactly what micro stuttering is. Which can be caused by this... "GameTime.MaxVariableFPS 72 and RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2". Set this to default so that your fps isn't locked at 72. Then just lock your fps at 72 with MSI Afterburner from the Rivatuner settings framerate limiter. This might rid the micro stuttering. Certain maps online have a lot to do with fps issues in BF1. Does this same micro stuttering happen in the campaign? Stuttering can be caused by multiple things. You could have RAM issues with that Ryzen CPU. I see that you are using just DDR4-2666 RAM and two different kinds of RAM at that. There could be a confliction with your BIOS there, especially if you have messed around with the voltage. They say Ryzen CPU's love at least DDR4-3000 RAM. If what I am suggesting you do here with the 72 fps lock doesn't fix the issue, you at least rule it out and you can add it to that list.

    Stuttering in Battlefield 1 with a good pc

    This video shows no "bad stuttering" at all. Your fps is pretty much locked at 70-72. Stuttering would show the fps drop below that. What you are seeing can be described as micro-stuttering. This... "GameTime.MaxVariableFPS 72 and RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2" is why your fps is locked at 70-72. I would set this back to how it was at default. Cap your fps at 72 with MSI AB if that's the fps you're trying to cap it at. Your in game settings show your monitor is 72 Hz? It that the max Hz of your monitor? You could try using these settings to maximize performance without losing visual fidelity: Anything to do with motion blur, chromatic abberation, dof, etc, turn them all OFF. Keep your field of view where you have it already though. Direct X 12 - OFF (11 is what you want for better fps, using 12 has fps stuttering issues on certain maps) Texture Quality - Ultra (dropping to low or medium from Ultra gives around 2-4% fps boost) Texture Filtering - Ultra (dropping to low from Ultra gives around 2-3% fps boost, setting to medium may help with micro-stuttering) Lighting Quality - Low (dropping to low from Ultra gives around 15% fps boost, set to medium or high for extra eye candy but expect loss in fps) Effect Quality - Ultra (dropping to low from Ultra gives very little fps boost) Post Process Quality - Low (dropping to low from Ultra gives around 15% fps boost) Mesh Quality - High (dropping to low from Ultra gives around 5% fps boost, dropping below high introduces pop-ins) Terrain Quality - Medium (very little fps impact, a minimum of medium introduces parallax, which makes rocks and dirt pop out and look better) Undergrowth Quality - Low (this is personal preference but low gives an fps boost) Antialiasing Post - TAA (leave this here no matter what, it makes things, especially trees, look much better, 7-8% fps boost on OFF though) Ambient Occlusion - OFF (turning this off gives 10% fps boost and the game still looks amazing) There are various guides on BF1 and they all seem to be from different times of the year so they will vary dramatically. Playing around with the settings yourself is the best way to determine boosts in fps. This guide is supposedly one of the best on the internet but I have found other good ones before as well. This guide right here though has animations you can click on for each setting to see exactly what each setting looks like. Perfect example... Terrain Quality Low to Ultra Gif
  14. Why would they have to do any of these 3 things? What's wrong with continuing to do what they're currently doing? Giving away pretty decent titles every couple of weeks isn't good enough for you? It is for me.

    extremely low gpu usage in fortnite

    This is just what happens in Fortnite. Best way to fix it from going under 70-80 fps or so and to get a dramatic improvement in fps in general is to just lower some high demanding settings. I recommend trying these to maximize fps while keeping visual fidelity... These first seven settings are basically locks. There's not much reason to set them to anything else. Pure no-brainers. Window Mode: FULLSCREEN (dramatically improves fps over anything Windowed) Frame Rate Limit: Unlimited 3D Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (100%) View Distance: Epic (dropping to low only improves fps by 4-5%) Shadows: OFF (dropping from Epic to Off improves fps by around 80%, yes 80%) Trust me on this. Anti-Aliasing: Epic (dropping from Epic to Off only improves fps by around 3%) Textures: Epic (dropping from Epic to low only increases fps by 1-2%) Now to the more complex settings... Effects: Personal Preference (dropping from Epic to low improves fps by around 15%). I recommend Low or Medium for situations where lots of things are going on. Effects in Fortnite control a lot of things, ambient occlusion(detail shadowing), a few of the water effects(you gotta look at water on all settings to see for yourself), shader calculations used to make the "cloud shadows" on the ground(I sure don't care about this). It also controls things like explosions and other visual extras. This is the one setting in Fortnite that you have to play around with on each setting to find your personal sweet spot. The lower you go, the more fps you will get, especially when so much is going on. The higher you go, the more fps you will lose but the better detail you will have in the things I mentioned in this setting. Post-Processing: Low or Medium (dropping from Epic to low improves fps by around 15%). PP in Fortnite includes contrast/brightness scaling and dynamic range calculation. Motion Blur: Personal Preference (the difference in fps between OFF and ON is around 4-5%). I prefer OFF because in Fortnite, motion blur can make spotting enemies harder than when it's off. And LCDs create a bit of motion blur on their own.
