    Sweet thanks. So a Samsung 970 EVO would be all good?

    Asus X99-S NVME Support

    Hi guys, I am a little bit confused about whether my motherboard actually supports NVME M.2 drives, or whether it is the SATA M.2 drives The manual states that the motherboard supports: This is my first foray into M.2 drives, so a little confused. Thanks
  4. I have just upgraded today to a 1440p monitor, and while I wouldn't say the resolution itself was a HUGE bump up, I got a monitor with GSync and 144Hz and I would say the smoother framerate was much better than a standard 1080p 60Hz monitor.

    what chrome extensions and apps do you use

    Quite a few... AdBlocker Reddit Enhancement Suite BetterTTV Dropbox for Gmail Lastpass Tunnelbear VPN Acrobat Reader Grammarly Magic Actions for YouTube

    Where to go?

    Haha that is true, and yes.... that is also true! It would probably be a high refresh 1440p panel or 4k 60hz

    Where to go?

    I have been running my dual GTX 780's for a few years now (see signature for full system specs) and I am now wanting to have a more power efficient PC, which expels less heat, is near silent and will last for a good few years! I am currently playing at 1080p 60Hz, however, I may upgrade in the next year or so. I mean I would be willing to spend up to a basic GTX 1080Ti price (£700ish) but I would like to know what would be the best overall card for my use case. Thanks

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    I am pretty much the same, love my Sennheisers <3 Could always play around with a 5.1 to binaural decoder! now that stuff is weird and impressive

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    Will always be nice to have, just in case you get a surround system in the future?

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    Also, it looks like the DVDs do contain 5.1 support, I would dare say that would be a way bigger perceived difference than any slight difference between the audio quality of CD vs DVD

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    I don't know how aware you are of nyquist theorem, but the biggest difference can usually be perceived when listening to audio under 44.1kHz, as the sampling theory has to be at least twice the value of the highest pitch of the audio track. So, in theory, our hearing only goes up to 20kHz, so a sampling frequency of 44.1kHz SHOULD contain all the audio we need to hear. Anything below 44.1kHz usually sounds muffled. There was a PhD student at the university doing a lot of research into all the ultra high-frequency stuff, recording violins with high-frequency mics and playing it back at over 192kHz... After hours and hours of listening to all that audio, I can honestly say, 48kHz is where I cap out and everything else is just a bigger number for bigger number's sake.

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    You can guarantee they will have at least been recording at 48kHz 24bits.
  13. DJfern94

    DVD audio quality vs CD audio quality?

    In terms of the actual audio quality, my research during my masters degree found that many people could not tell the difference between the 44.1kHz and 48kHz standards used by CD's and DVD's respectively, however you will find that DVDs will normally allow for 5.1 surround sound (this will be explicit on the back of the box). But yeah, in theory, DVD's "SHOULD" have a higher perceived audio quality.

    It's the Biennial upgrade time!

    I don't have a real budget in mind, probably less than £1400 in total. Haha two 1080ti's would be lovely!

    It's the Biennial upgrade time!

    Thanks for the heads up! I only really picked that card as it was the cheapest triple fan one I could find it the UK, but I will have a look at some others
