  1. Don't you mean Voodoo? Or were they not the same company? I remember 3DFX had GLIDE the low level API, aka "mantle" of the day... and SLI... and dual GPUs on a single card... All in the late 90's. wtf.
  2. From the official AMD Catalyst "Omega" driver email sent out to those who signed up: There is the usual disclaimer of how they had achieved their numbers and on what hardware. 1. Intel Core i7 4690X with 16GB DDR3-1866, AMD Radeon™ R9 290X Windows 8.1 64bit comparing launch driver 13.12 vs Driver 14.501. All tests run at 3840x2160. Civilization BE @ quality=medium mantle=off scored 46.17 vs 63.63 fps. I guess we can't say AMD is not humble. What does the FX line-up look like in the future? Or, are we looking at a strictly APU future for AMD? Source: http://links.em.experience.amd.com/servlet/MailView?ms=MjE4MTY4MzQS1&r=NzI2NzgwODExODES1&j=NDYwOTcwODEyS0&mt=1&rt=0
  3. Looks good on the resume! Hope he gets whatever job he is after with that.
  4. You know you're fucking up when Canada has leaps and bounds faster ISPs than you. Seriously. Have you seen how big our country is in relation to our population? Surprised we even have internet!
  5. a 6950 to a 7950, aka the 280, is not worth the upgrade. Buy a used 290 or 290x. You can find them for sub $200. They are leaps and bounds better. As mentioned above: your due for a whole PC overhaul, really. Again - buy used if you have to. As for the PSU; you should be fine. 290x pulls like 230watts at the wall. Recommended PSUs for video cards indicate total system power, not singular device.
  6. Nexus 9. It's also a better shield tablet than the shield tablet. hah! It's made by HTC and has front facing speakers - at about $400 USD I believe. also... has the Nvidia K1 in it. So yeah.
  7. Thank you everybody! Very appreciated.
  8. I'll keep this short: Should I replace my 2500k for gaming use? Will I see a Difference in games? Is my AMD 290 being held back at this point? *** note It's OC'ed to 4.6ghz
  9. Lots of bullshit useless posting. Seems to be a theme here: hate on a product/company you don't like because it's not popular in place for your other favorite corporate brand. Whether you feel you have an excuse or not for your ignorant posting: useless comments in no way related to the original post does not help this community. You guys really betray your own age, or at the least, your maturity.
  10. Thanks for everything guys. I have a good idea now!
  11. I'm going to be building and OCing for her. I'll check out the xeon anyways - thanks!
  12. Hmmm yeah. I think you are right. Ram is expensive now anyways... droping to 8 gigs would cover a 1tb HDD. Thank you.
  13. Yeah I'm going to buy a decent fan/AIO so I can OC the CPU. That's why I opted for a Z97 instead of a much cheaper H97 board. I was actually looking for a 970 but they are all sold-out and on backorder. That 290 is only $300 though! hard to beat that...
  14. I've been looking to get this for a friends PC: Bitfenix Fury 650W 80PLUS Gold Semi Modular Single Rail Bitshield 135mm FDB Fan Power Supply It's very cheap for a gold-rated and the cables are soooo nice!
  15. This is for my lady friend - she is looking for something small and portable. Most ITX cases I can find are just as large as an mATX case or if they are smaller, they are special order. Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 Windforce 3x 947MHZ 4GB 5.0GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card Bitfenix Prodigy M mATX Fyberflex Tower Case White 1X5.25 4X3.5INT No PS USB3.0 HD Audio ADATA SX900 2.5" 256GB SSD SATA 3 SandForce 2281 550MB/SEC Write and 530MB/SEC Read Intel Core i5 4690K Unlocked Quad Core 3.5GHZ/3.9GHZ Processor LGA1150 Haswell 6MB Cache Retail Gigabyte Z97MX-GAMING 5 mATX LGA1150 Z97 DDR3 PCI-E16 PCI-E8 XFIRE/SLI SATA3 USB3 HDMI Motherboard Kingston HyperX Fury Memory Black 16GB 2X8GB DDR3-1866 CL10 Dual Channel Memory Kit Bitfenix Fury 650W 80PLUS Gold Semi Modular Single Rail Bitshield 135mm FDB Fan Power Supply Total: $1,215.92 CAD Everything can be ordered and physically picked up same day and assembled. This will be something she can pick up and move to my house on weekends and hook up to my 2nd TV so we can couch co-op locally. She is a corporate lawyer, so money is an non-issue; however she has not ever had a gaming PC and I figured a best-value option would be the least scary. Remember: non PC gamers have a hard time see why they should spend something like this when you can buy a PC at walmart for $500 (or so I assume) Everything listed is currently on sale. *** Opinions/suggestions would be appreciated. I have zero brand preference. I am seeking something small and immediately available at Ncix in BC (any location)
