  1. I doubt there would be any difference. All that HDR adds is additional precision (range) for the gamma curve, so the conversion is mapping the HDR range to the clamped SDR range. Nothing else.
  2. Yes. Give me some time to play GTA in not so virtual reality mode
  3. For the most part I would agree, the only point to digital preorders is whatever content or extras they bundle with it. With that said I preordered Mech Warrior 5 because the preorder came with enough stuff for Mech Warrior Online that it made it a good deal regardless if MW5 was trash or not. Unfortunately though the vast majority of titles don't carry enough goodies with them to justify the risk of a preorder.
  4. Really depends on where you are. Here in Canada you typically take a 2 year diploma program with a major in the area that you want to pursue such as telecoms, networking, computer systems etc. On top of that you may choose to pursue certifications for specific things to advance your career or make your self more employable.
  5. So they moved it from the most shittastic developer/publisher to the 2nd most shittastic developer. I guess they can't do any worse than EA...
  6. Some people like to play with temperature. Why not heat things up in the bedroom with oxy acetylene.
  7. I have my old GTX 980 in my system for offloading local renders to so that I can continue to work uninterrupted with my GTX 1080. You don't need/want Crossfire/SLI for such purpose. All you want to do is slap both cards in and power them, they will show up as separate discrete cards that you can assign work to.
  8. Silver is a natural biocide if worse comes to worse.
  9. I would slap the card in and load the CPU and GPU to see if it crashes or not. If it does you answered your question as to whether or not you need a new PSU. There's no point in going out and buying a new PSU if your current one can handle.
  10. I am assuming that your winch rocker switch connects to a relay thats connected between the battery and the winch. With a microcontroller and a couple of MOSFETs and some switches you could easily program it to hold the signal high for a specified duration as well as regular switch operation.
  11. So what you're saying is that when I am working on my own vehicles I should probably leave the BFH (big fucking hammer) in tool box and try to persuade things another way. As far OP It's cool but trying to achieve that speed at any sort of usable distance is going to be damn near impossible.
  12. It's not really an issue you can fix. That whining noise could also be any of the ceramic capacitors (MLCC) on any of the components in the computer due to piezoelectric noise. You're looking for a needle in a haystack when it comes to fixing this. Edit: If you want a more neutral sound you can always increase the speed of your fans to drown out the whining. The sound a fan makes is more or less like white noise so it's a lot harder to focus on it than a distinct high pitch whine.
  13. Video is way to vague to even make an accurate guess. Like others have said its probably an airplane. If you want to capture something like that you either need an excellent camera with an excellent lens or you need to go max ISO and a stupid long exposure on your phone.
