  1. You’re right I did ask for advice and I appreciate your input. However I disagree that only custom keyboards can be good and that everything else is garbage or average. These companies spend millions of dollars on designing things and, while there may be people out there who prefer something different, they design them for the masses. It’s the same with computers in general. Just because you don’t build a PC yourself doesn’t mean any pre-built PC being sold is average or crap and can’t possibly be good because it’s prebuilt.
  2. Well $300 is a lot for a keyboard so if I can’t get a good one for that then there is something wrong with the market. Even Corsair’s top of the line K100 is only $229.99.
  3. What is GMMK? Also I’m not really familiar with swapping keyboard stuff so I’m preferably looking for a plug & play keyboard that I can just buy, un-box, and play.
  4. Hey guys I’m currently gaming with a Razer Cynosa Chroma RGB keyboard and recently I’ve noticed that it’s staring to break down. Sometimes I’ll have to push a button 2 or even 3 times before it registers and it’s infuriating when I’m playing a game and die (not due to my own fault or being outplayed) because my keyboard decides not to do what I tell it too. Anyway, I’m looking for a good keyboard with a sturdy build from a reliable company. Preferably with Cherry MX switches. Wireless would be a great perk but not absolutely necessary. Budget: $250-$300 (preferably on Amazon since I have $350 rewards on my Amazon Card).
  5. Hmm I wonder why they would say it requires almost double what it actually does. You would think the devs would’ve wanted players to enjoy the best experience possible graphically and people probably have settings turned down below necessary due to what the game says is required.
  6. I’ll try that and see. I didn’t know I could monitor VRAM usage. I thought I could only view RAM usage like in task manager. Also if you increase the image scaling the VRAM shoots through the roof up to a whopping 14GB!
  7. See what I mean though? I need 2GB more VRAM!
  8. See what I mean? Not just 11GB but almost 13GB!
  9. Well that sucks . My GPU only has 11GB of VRAM so I need 1-2GB more to play my game at 1440p with max settings.
  10. Hey guys, if a GPU doesn’t have enough VRAM for a game to perform optimally but there is plenty of available DDR4 system RAM is it possible for the GPU to use the system RAM as VRAM as needed to play the game optimally?
  11. I do have a QLC drive with my 1TB Samsung 860 QVO and it does seem to load games and maps and stuff just as quickly as my more expensive 860 EVOs.
  12. So I’m guessing the 970 Pro is for people who move large amounts of data around often and need that extra endurance of many many read & write cycles?
  13. Well I’m just going to be gaming and I have about 800GB left on my 2TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD and about 500GB available on my Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe SSD but because I keep my entire Steam library on my computer that space will fill up fast. Usually I put my least demanding games (like Starcraft, Diablo, etc.,) on my 2TB Seagate Firecuda SSHD. Then I put older, but more demanding games for that time (like Resident Evil 7, Metro Exodus, etc.,) on my 860 EVOs. Lastly I put newer, very demanding games (like Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Cyberpunk 2077 etc.,) on my NVMe SSD. But my 970 EVO Plus can only hold a few more games so I was thinking or adding either a 2TB 970 EVO Plus NVMe or a 1TB 970 Pro since both are the same price range. But if I won’t get any real benefit from the 970 Pro I might as well get 2x as much storage space for the same price with a 970 EVO Plus.
  14. What is the difference between an SSD that has 2-bit MLC (SLC) such as the Samsung 970 Pro and an SSD that has 3- bit MLC (TLC) such as the Samsung 970 EVO Plus? Is it worth all the extra money to go for SLC over TLC?
  15. I think you misread my post. I said I’ve never played the Witcher but I have talked to lots of people who have and have heard tons of great things about it and have never heard anyone talk about it without being amazed as if playing it was a life changing moment in gaming for them. As for CD Projekt, they’re a multi billion dollar business now so they are financially sound for sure.
  16. But I think you have to buy the game to preload it and you can only preload it shortly before it comes out so I was wondering if maybe there was a “preload limit” or something like that. Sounds like there isn’t though.
  17. Ah ok I’ll wait then. Thanks! I don’t think Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be one of those “sale on release” kind of games. Looks like they went balls to the wall on that game and (rightfully) are going to milk every last penny with a $59.99 price tag for at least a year.
  18. Well the increase in share value is a good example of how Nvidia’s resources have drastically increased. That’s why being expensive can’t be the reason it has to be something else. But I think it’s what Supa said. That makes sense to me rather than just being difficult and expensive. Also if you think about it, 1000 or 100,000 3080s all turned into 3080 FEs still would’ve sold out.
  19. Oh ok wow! Thanks I didn’t know all that! That was exactly the kind of well informed answer I was looking for. Thanks!
  20. ..I’m not even claiming to know anything! I was simply asking a question in the first place not declaring or stating that I knew something others don’t.
  21. Ah well I guess in that sense it would probably be better for them to just buy a company like EVGA or Gigabyte and merge it into Nvidia then starting up from scratch.
  22. But what I’m thinking is doesn’t Nvidia already do that when they sell Founder’s Editions? I mean sure they would have to expand customer service and such but Nvidia has gone from $20 per share to $540 per share in the last 5 years which means it’s grown 27x larger today than it was 5 years ago. Those higher share prices means more money for Nvidia to do things exactly like that, expand.
