  1. After spending a long time thinking, I figured out there was only one thing missing from my life.... I was really missing giving facebook hundreds of my own dollars so they can put microphones and cameras in my house. Seriously though, "sure" they put a camera off button but, unless that button physically disconnects the power to the microphone and camera, it might as well not be there. I hope facebook paid good money for this video, it sounded like you were just reading the provided script from facebook. Where's the Linus that takes the whole thing apart to see if the button does any actual switching, or if it's just a gimmic to provide an illusion of safety?
  2. Currently have a EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 iCX. For $181.48 I can step up to the EVGA 1080ti Black Edition. Currently have a 1440p 60Hz monitor. The most demanding thing I play is Shadow of War or PUBG. I know I don't really need to upgrade. But do you think it's worth it given the current state/market of GPUs? PS: I have 4 days to decide to start the step up process or not. Current other specs are: 6700k, 16gb DDR4, 1TB 840 Evo, and a 4tb mechanical drive for long term storage.
  3. It's all about heat as previously mentioned. Increasing operating temperature above 90C ish exponentially increases component degradation (such as caps and mosfets to some degree). Cards such as the GT 220 and all those other old cards ran cool because they relatively consumed almost no power and ran cool. If the VRMs and core run cool, it will likely last a very long time
  4. Get a PWM splitter and run all your rad fans off of one header then
  5. Yeah that's it. set fans up to blow air across the GPUs so they get some fresh air. These are some toastly little buggers
  6. I have the same card. Get a fan blowing air across them so they get fresh air. I just changed the TIM on my MSI 390x yesterday and temps dropped from peaks of 95 with 100% fan to tops of 86 with an average temp of 82. They did a shit job putting TIM on (it was bubbled over the die on my card), and they used some weird sticky stuff. Change it and it should help. It also doesn't violate the warranty if you're in the USA
  7. My thoughts are that essentially at the core you can call all FPS games a reskin of any other FPS game. The only real difference in FPS games is whether or not all the guns are hitscan or not. If you think the game is a stupid reskin, don't buy it. Simple as that. Buy it or don't buy it, no one want's to hear '(insert FPS title here) is a reskin of (insert FPS title launched last year here)'
  8. BF4 now has the best net code of any battlefield game ever. The 60Hz servers are was better than the 20Hz found in BF3 and previous titles
  9. It's a significantly better looking game, new setting, new movement mechanics, completely different weapons. I'm not sure what you want. If you want some long drawn out simulation go play Arma 3. Battlefield will always be the in between game between COD and Arma as far as game play goes. And that's what the community wants.
  10. No, the game engine will dynamically load an unload the needed textures in and out of system and video ram. This is why loading screens exist
  11. This Something isn't working properly anymore. In the words of Chrome: He's dead, Jim!
  12. This goes back to I forget what game where they beta tested console & pc cross platform play but then removed it because no one could ever win with a controller
  13. Currently using a 390x to warm my room, I mean play games. Pls give lower tdp card
