  1. I have no idea what I would do with this but I want it.
  2. You might want to consider a reference blower card if you're gonna go with that case.
  3. Nvidia can actually release a card that can be relevant for e few generations. Imagine their entire Kepler lineup. Now imagine them rebranded as GTX 900 Series. There you go. The point people are trying to make with rebrands is that they suck. Imagine your dad rewrapping last year's Christmas present and giving it to you. Except he changes the wrapping paper. Like that? NO. Nobody does. That Christmas present may have been good, but wouldn't you feel cheated? I mean it's been almost 2 years and all AMD can come up with is 3 Fiji chips and the rest of the lineup is completely rebranded (exc
  4. Actually Nvidia's drivers have been REAL shitty these past few months. They crippled Kepler users to sell Maxwell better. Just look at Project CARS and The Witcher 3. Even a GTX Titan Black can't outperform a GTX 970 in those games. Why? Driver issues. Once you rollback the drivers, you get butter smooth gameplay. And I'd say AMD's really banking on DX12, where most of their innovations (if any) will reveal themselves. I'd say get an old R9 290X for cheap and forget about the damned 300 Series.
  5. I think AMD shot themselves in the foot with the R9 Rebrand Series. I mean, if you're going for a GTX 970-ish card you'd be looking at a GTX 970 because its superior in every way except for VRAM. Think about it. Would you buy a card which has about the same performance but consumes twice the amount of power? No! Except if you already own a pretty baller power supply and don't give two shits about power consumption. AMD's only selling cards will be the Fiji cards. But the flagship doesn't outperform the similarly priced GTX 980Ti (except maybe 4K and DX12 yeah, yeah, I know). Maybe the Fury
  6. While I do kinda lean towards the green team, I respect AMD and eagerly await their new releases (so Nvidia may lower prices). When I heard that the R9 300 Series would consist of 99% rebranded cards I was sorely disappointed, only to be excited for the Fury X. But now it seems that my hope of Nvidia lowering GTX 980Ti prices is ashes. Hopefully the DX12 benchmarks can prove AMD can still produce a GPU King.
  7. Roll back drivers and disable Nvidia Streamer Service if you don't use SHIELD or ShadowPlay. Worked for me.
  8. Hi guys, I have a strange problem with my rig (i7 4790K, Maximus VII Impact). Recently I have been unable to boot up my PC due to Q-Code 55, which is a memory problem (I think). So I tried swapping out my 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pros for my old but trusty 2x4GB Kingston HyperX Blues. No problems booting there. So, thinking it was a problem with my VPros, I tested them in my old rig (i7 3770, ASUS P8Z77-V) and boots perfectly, nothing wrong. So, I try placing the VPros back into my Maximus build. Nada. Retry using my Kingstons, boots no problemo. Is it a RAM problem or is there something wrong

  10. Fury is the main feature, but still, AMD should answer for rebranding their entire R9 200 lineup as the R9 300 series. It's not just stupid, its goddamn retarded. Why couldn't they release a full Fiji-based lineup? I mean, the Fiji-based cards look super promising, so why rebrand?
  11. If you have the extra money, maybe go for the Radeon Fury Series. Based on Fiji architecture. No point going with AMD R9 300 Series. All rebrands. Either that or go green team?
  12. I think you misunderstand why people are mad. What AMD is doing with the R9 390X (and their entire lineup) is basically rebranding old cards, with minor tweaks. The GTX 970 and GTX 980 are Maxwell cards, based on a newer architecture, whereas from the rumours, the only new chip AMD has is the FURY, and that reportedly costs more than the GTX 980Ti
  13. Don't get Kepler cards. NVIDIA's sabotaging the performance of Kepler cards with their newer drivers in order to make Maxwell look good. Search benchmarks of Witcher 3 or Project CARS and you'll see. Anyone with a Kepler card, Titans included can just use them as paperweights now.
