  1. The display only has HDMI outputs, so would it be possible to get over 60Hz with an HDMI to DVI-D cable like this one http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-HDMI-DVI-Adapter-Cable/dp/B00L3KNZZ8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1453323683&sr=8-1&keywords=hdmi+to+dvi+d
  2. I mean when I go and set a custom resolution with anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate and click test, I got no output on the display.
  3. Hey guys, so I have a Playstation 3D display I'm using as a monitor for my PC (http://us.playstation.com/ps3/accessories/sony-playstation-3d-display-ps3/index.html). It's paired with my Asus GTX 970 Strix through an HDMI 2.0 cable. The issue I'm having is that it has an advertised 240Hz refresh rate, but when hooked up to my PC it's only outputting 1080p/60Hz. I've tried overclocking the refresh rate in the Nvidia Control Panel, but to no luck. Every time I input a refresh rate higher than 60Hz, the monitor tells me that it is not supported. Am I doing something wrong or is this just false adv
  4. Hey guys, didn't really know where to post this. So I recently got an NZXT H440 and an ASRock Fatal1ty Z97x Killer mobo. My question is that I was transferring some movies onto an external USB 3.0 HDD http://amzn.to/1OsQ3kD and I was getting transfer speeds of around 40-50 MBps when connected to the front USB 3.0 ports on the case and about 80 MBps when connected to the MOBO USB 3.0 ports in the back. Is this normal for USB 3.0 ports? I thought that USB 3.0 was supposed to transfer a lot quicker (up to 640 MBps)? Is there a reason my USB 3.0 ports are performing more like USB 2.0 ports? Any he
  5. I'm currently playing at 1080P but I would like to have the option to play at 1440P later
  6. Guys I'm in the market for a GPU around the $350 price range. I was thinking about getting the GTX 970 since it's seems so popular. Specifically I was gonna get the ASUS GTX 970 STRIX, but with the release of the MSI R9 390 8GB Gaming GPU, should I get that instead. I've posted a couple threads about it and the R9 390 is supposedly a better card than the GTX 970, but the difference is minimal. Is this true? Also, how would you explain the benchmarks posted at http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/R9_390_PCS_Plus/30.html Stock vs stock, the R9390 is faster than the 970 by 1% at 1440P
  7. Hey guys so I'm thinking about getting an Asus GTX 970 STRIX or MSI R9 390 8GB Gaming. In terms of game optimization I feel like NVIDIA cards in real world tests are better since I feel like developers optimize better for NVIDIA cards but I might be completely wrong. Am I making the right decision here or should I stick with my GTX 970 instead. Also, which do you guys think has better overclock potential. Which is gonna give me the most power for my buck. Thanks Guys!
  8. If games are better optimized for NVIDIA cards, isn't it smarter to go with the GTX 970?
  9. Hey guys, so I thought it was time to upgrade my GPU and I'm set on the $350 price range right now. I was wondering what you all thought was a better get, a GTX 970 or the MSI R9 390 Gaming 8 gb?
  10. So I don't know if this matters, but I just got a GTX 970 and from time to time, for instance with The Witcher 1, sometimes the game will crash and both my monitors will go black. I can still hear the sound in the back but I have to do a hard shut down (hold down the power button) every time this happens. Can anyone tell me what the issue is? Thanks a lot. GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 970 Strix CPU: AMD Phenom X6 II 1090T
  11. Do you think I'll be staying stable at 60 FPS then with a CPU upgrade then?
  12. You're right in that the bottleneck is not hindering gameplay at all, Dying Light for example is running at a pretty solid 55 frames throughout, but with a CPU upgrade can I expect maybe a 20% increase in performance. I'm directly comparing to the benchmarks Kotaku had posted http://kotaku.com/dying-light-benchmarked-graphics-and-cpu-performance-1682948936 With a CPU upgrade can I expect to average around 70 FPS? I know SSD and RAM make differences also, and correct me if I'm wrong, but those are minor compared to a GPU and CPU upgrade.
  13. Wow guys, thanks so much for all the input, yeah I guess I'll make the switch over to a 4690K, do you guys have any MOBOs to reccommend. As of now I'm not planning to overclock.
  14. Hey guys, so I just recently upgraded my HD 7870 to the Asus GTX 970 Strix and I feel like I'm not getting the performance out of it like I should. I'm running a pretty old CPU, an AMD Phenom II x6 1090T and wanted to get you all's opinion on whether this is what's causing problems. If this is truly is what's causing my performance woes, what kind of performance improvement could I be looking at if I upgraded say to a Intel 4690K. Thanks!
