  1. xeon x5650 vs fx 8350

    The X5650 is a little bit faster out of the box by about 10%, but once you overclock both CPU's the X5650 can gain around +20% over the AMD FX in single-threaded performance and +40% in multi-threaded performance, it's a noticeable improvement and will help him get better performance in games, although i wouldn't pair a really high-end GPU with this type of CPU's unless you game at higher than 1080p resolution: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Xeon-X5650-vs-AMD-FX-8350/m355vs1489
  2. Z97 mATX mobo

    nevermind sry
  3. people don't realise that if you have Gsync even 85 to 95FPS is in the stupid smooth range.
  4. Founders edition 1070

    any card with a dual or tripple fan open air design cooler will perform better unless you have a mini itx system. i would not get a FE card personally.
  5. game Lagging on 1080TI

    install nvidia Geforce experience and download and install the latest drivers.
  6. yo is everything fine man? havn't heard from you in a while...

  7. New 1080, should I be happy with the temps?

    i have a GTX 1080 gigabyte windforce which is a middle of the stack card in terms of cooling, here are the settings i use, msi afterburner/fan curve... at 58% fanspeed the card is relatively quiet and peeks at 71c Feel free to give this a try, you might want to start lower...probably +400mhz on memory and +100mhz on the core Lowering the power limit while giving a nice core clock boost like that give me +/- 98% of the performance of a full overclock that run at 76c on this card
  8. Acer Predator XB1 vs X34

    i would get a VR headset instead...i have an awesome gaming monitor and i havn't used it in 3 months...since i got my rift...it shits all over the best of the best monitors there is...hands down.
  9. Don’t hate me after reading this

    screenshots or it didn't happened...most ryzen have a hard time being stable at 4 ghz...now 5.4...that would be a world record i think...
  10. My opinions on VR in it's current state, should YOU buy into it?

    hi, i come back to you because i thought about you today and this question and i didn't gave a fair answer...there are a lot of things you can do that are not games other than movies like i said yesterday... For example there is Goggle earth VR which is pretty impressive, it's very cool to see in VR and they even have all the street view now available in full 3d and the perspective is spot on and it works really well. Also there are all the ''creative'' oriented, for example ''medium'' that let you sculpt in 3d with clay and stuff, or google tilt brush for example...if you have some drawing habilities you can also like Kingspray grafitti for example which is amazing, i own it and i love it...the feeling of spraying with the cans in VR is spot on with the oculus controllers...it's very cool. There are also a lot of ''visiting'' or ''travel'' things...i don't know how they are called...like the chernobyl VR project for example, or the apollo moon mission...there are many like that, things you can visit...museum, caves, all 360 sites you can visit and walk around in...etc. there is quite a lot of stuff available that non-gaming related is what i'm saying see ya!
  11. My opinions on VR in it's current state, should YOU buy into it?

    i'll just answer to this part here because i'm short on time but i'll tell you you ARE the right market...not so much for RTS (i think) but for Racing and FPS these are the 2 where VR really shines...project cars 2 in VR is SUPERB if you have a racing wheel i swear to god it's worth getting a VR headset just for that...and for FPS games there are plenty as well...some of which even use free locomotion instead of teleportation...look at Arktika 1, pavlov, onward, robo recall, Raw Data, Killing floor incursion or Arizona sunshine just to name a few... EDIT: in fact if you search for RTS and select the VR compatibles and VR only titles, there are quite a lot of that as well... Armor clash VR, Castle wars VR, AirMech command (check this one, looks pretty cool to me) , zombie city defense...there is a lot of cool ones actually.
  12. My opinions on VR in it's current state, should YOU buy into it?

    it's so depressing to read ignorant shit like that, it hurts. people commenting on things they THINK they know about, have you even tried it?! have you even taken the time to go to Steam and check the boxes for the games that are compatible with rift and vive...i can tell you right now there is 87 pages of games that support VR for both vive and rift and there are new games coming out and being developped everyday and you can buy them either on oculus store or on steam...do you know how many millions of these VR headsets are out in the wild already? do you know how alive and well the multiplayer is for many of these games? well...I KNOW...i play them...and there is no shortage of players or games to play, both single player and multiplayer and both on rift and vive...and there really aren't that many exclusives anymore...all you say is bullshit man...for real!
  13. 7700k/1080ti

    if you do anything that requires 32gb of RAM the i7-7700K is very likely not the right CPU choice...
  14. Should I wait for Volta?

    these CPU's you are talking about are capable of delivering sustained 120FPS gaming in pretty much any games that have decent enough otpimization if you have the GPU horsepower to match...and the GTX 1080ti at 4K is barely a 60FPS card if you use high fidelity settings...and in VR you can make it bend to it's knees in a heart beat...they really aren't that powerful when you have them at work on some serious stuff...
  15. Should I wait for Volta?

    it does not...it's normal to catch a few frames here and there when using a faster CPU, does not mean the 7700K is holding it back in any way shape or form.
