    Who is buying a 3090?

    I would buy one but my main system is power hungry as it is. I have to keep feeding it food and give it adequate cooling with proper housing. Plus my main system is a beast anyways: way over 4k @500fps+. The 3090 can't touch it.

    New Monitor: Lines Aren't Parallel Or Am I Imagining Things?

    I believe I am seeing a weird scenario where my left of my screen looks further away, The tool bar on the right looks bigger. Even if I tilt the screen way to the right it still is weird. So I have the screen perfectly perpendicular to me and the left side feels like its tilted away from me a...

    So much for NVIDIA claiming 10 gigs of vram would not be a limitation

    One thing that I have learned over the years is that recommended and minimum specs are often further from the truth than you might think.

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    If you are going to wait for Big Navi, I would personally wait for reviews to come out. Let other people be the guinea pigs. Assess if AMD will release 3-6 months of terrible drivers.

    The great video card dump of 2020 has begun!!!

    I know the first thing comes to mind is high end, but dang, this could also make it a good time to do that second rig for the living room.

    Where will you be getting your reviews for Ampere and RDNA2?

    I used to go to Toms or Anandtech, but nowa days I just watch gamers nexus for a good feel of everything, then I will let the early adopters be the guinea pigs and read forums for issues they are having. I will never jump too early given the experience I have had with my 5700xt. If I do buy this...

    Is DLSS The Real Deal?

    Don't you mean Wine?(badoom-tish) I would be the first to jump off the windows boat if we saw a reasonable uptick in native "pro" software compatibility as well as drivers, games, etc. Just because of the lack of consumer presence linux has in the pc market doesn't mean its not prevalent in just...

    Is DLSS The Real Deal?

    If it is, then I don't see how AMD can catch up. Is up scaling resolutions the future? Where do we go from here if Nvidia can double its performance with this trick?

    High IPD - am I out of the VR game before I started?

    OP, I remember seeing a video of someone with a larger than 72mm IPD trying out the Pimax. (74mm and change). I tracked down the video. Hope this helps. It's the first guy in the video.

    Which video card would you purchase?

    OP, what were you coming from, if you don't mind me asking. I say this because you don't want to be on a 1080ti and necessarily go to a 5700xt or rtx 2070 super. If you were less than a gtx 1080 any of those cards you are looking at will be great. It gets a little more difficult when you start...

    Problem with 5700 XT black screen

    Right now, I just have this feeling. What I'm going to say I have no evidence for, but I has a sneaking suspicion that they created "intelligent " software and by intelligent I mean in the worst way possible: Telemetry, hand holding, nanny state, big brother. Even if you opt out of sending...

    Problem with 5700 XT black screen

    My 5700xt would give me freezes and black screens. I still get a black screen once in a long while (weeks) but usually if i unplug my monitor or power it off and then on, it brings the desktop back up. What seemed to help stability for me was to auto undervolt. I believe there are two problems...

    Old AMD GPU destroys Nvidia in Doom Eternal

    I can't wait when everything uses more than 4 cores and low level api's.

    Question for the veterans of PC gaming: why was the Radeon 9700 Pro such a big deal?

    Part of the hype around cards like the 9700pro/9800pro are at least partly due to the games that were released after that, namely Half Life 2, Doom, and Farcry. While there were eventually better options for these games later on, these were the cards that many used to carry them through this...

    5700 xt vs. rtx 2070 super for a new build

    Note that Recent drivers have fixed a lot of the 5700xt problems, however, there are still some issues. Black screens have still been reported. Also, i have heard reports of dx9 games not playing well with the 5700 series. One of the dx9 games I play has a bit of frame skipping. I would suggest...
