  1. I agree that is normal. I was just expecting a bit more from a 1080ti. Especially when the card is only using 60% of its cababilities. So it is reasonable to think the CPU is at fault. Can't say I have ever experienced a situation like that Frame rate is anywhere from 80-90 fps. The monitor can do 144. I am currently running the max settings at 2560X1080 I don't think there is necessarily an issue so much as just not what I was expecting. I haven't been in a situation where the graphics card didn't ramp all the way up 100% during gameplay.
  2. It defaulted to the highest settings after the change, so I left it there
  3. Hi all, I just bought a second hand GTX 1080ti for my system. The card works fine, and runs well. My issue though is that during some game play in Destiny 2 (likely the most demanding title I play on this system) I'm noticing that card inst becoming the inferno that it was during stress tests. Turns out that on average I'm seeing an average of 50-60% utilization. My first thoughts lead me to think that it was a CPU or RAM bottleneck. I ran HWmonitor during an hour of gameplay only to realize that the CPU isn't being pushed to its limit either
  4. Hi all, I have a Sapphire nitro+ RX 480 8GB card with an issue. The card has constant artifacts across the screen. Even during idle on the desktop. I had a similar (but much worse) problem with this exact model about 2 months after I bought it new back in 2016 (I think). I RMA'd that car back to Sapphire and they said they could not replicate my issue but they sent me a brand new card anyway. When I got the replacement, which is the card I have now, it still had the issue to a lesser degree. I have tried this card in multiple different computers wit
  5. Yes actually. They've lived in my closet all this time. Send me a DM so we don't crowd this up
  6. My company just wrote off some old Android computers. The computer itself is an industrial panel running Android 4.4.4. Here is the product page https://teguar.com/tp-a945-07-android-panel-pc.html It is not possible to update it beyond that. The OS is baked into a soldered on emmc chip and does not have an accessable boot loader of any kind. The unit has a touchscreen, 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, a micro USB, an ethernet port and a db9 Com port. That's about it. There is no battery, no wifi, no Bluetooth, no Google services, no GPS, no speakers, no
  7. I have a Garmin vivoactive HR smart watch. I can set a vibration alarm on it. Actually vibration is actually the only way the watch outputs to the user aside from the screen. The vibration can be a little loud but its far quieter than an audible alarm.
  8. Well dang. It might not be worth it then to rebuy Netflix, and get a VPN if there's that chance that Netflix would just deny it anyway
  9. Really? I had Netflix at one point. it had the same problem as hulu; not uploading content. Wonder why it would be on Netflix Canada but not US. Either way wouldn't a VPN not mix too well with a video stream?
  10. I want to get digital downloads for TV series, Cartoons mainly because I'm ultimately a kid at heart. Before I go forward here, I don't want illegal downloads: They aren't good quality, they can be complicated to obtain, and mainly I actually do enjoy the shows I want to buy and want to support the creators. I currently have Hulu as my only source of TV. They are terrible at uploading the latest content. Im looking for -Avatar the last airbender (one of my all time favorites) -The Legend of Korra (seen some, like it) -Steven Universe -Ad
  11. Cool that's what I thought, I was just concerned about running different kits at the rated (or close to it) speeds.
  12. Hello, I want to upgrade my system to 32GB of ram for caching as well as just necessity. I currently have this kit https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B014JESKRW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547488679&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=corsair%2Bvengeance%2Blpx%2B16gb%2Bddr4&dpPl=1&dpID=41AGvSmY-fL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1 If I purchase a second one of these, what is the chances of these working well together? Will I be able to run all 4 of these stickss at their rated 3000mhz speed
  13. I'm looking for a new hobby. I like to build and upgrade things to make them faster and perform better. I'm already into PCs, cars, blacksmithing, audio, and electronics. -My PC is already about as good as I need it to be. Any more upgrades will start to see diminishing returns. -My car is in the shop now. Once I pay off the mechanics, I'll likely just leave it alone due to the $3000 cost of the repairs. -Blacksmithing requires a significant amount of time. That being said the place where I have it right now will not be available to me by the end of this year a
  14. Sweet. I just placed a bid on a hd60 on eBay. We'll see if that goes anywhere. Can OBS record on my screen? Or would I need a different piece of software to screen capture?
  15. wwowouldn't happen to know whatever I could find a capture card that wasn't too expensive, would you?
