    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    Beat by a couple of days :LOL: Funny how everyone around me, including myself, absolutely despised steam around release. Oh how far we've come.

    Your CPU progression

    Updating my list from 12 years ago. I don't remember the clocks specifically now. Getting older is a bitch.. After E2200: Intel Q8300 AMD FX8350 (Sidegrade IMO) Intel i7 4790k (massive upgrade in games) AMD Ryzen 1800X (sidegrade for games but needed the cores) AMD Ryzen 3600x Intel I7 11700F...

    New Xbox Rumors: $249/$499 Consoles, 1TB NVMe SSDs, Ray-Tracing Support

    Was thinking exactly this. A 2TB HDD with smaller SSD caching (32 or 64GB cache chip makes sense). 4k textures / assets are going to fill 1TB fast for most console gamers (people who game primarily on console). Game install size increases dramatically every generation. My base (launch) PS4...

    Former Gearbox Lawyer Accuses CEO of Lewd Behavior, Taking Secret $12M Bonus

    While I wish no hardships on the vast majority of developers (most of them are simply following orders to support themselves / families), I do hope Gearbox gets a management shuffle / replacement. After leading teams of people to shit on two of my beloved adolescent franchises (Duke Nukem and...

    The Battlefield V PC System Requirements Have Been Released

    I'm thinking it has something to do with memory bandwidth. Frostbite is one of VERY few game engines which provides a reasonable framerate bump when you increase memory frequemcy / channels. Corsair released a benchmark some years back showing this gain. Will try to dig it up. Additionally, I...

    Bilkom: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Release in 2019

    CDPR only recently (just after E3) announced the game is playable start to finish but some big content chunks are still missing. "The entire game is playable from start to finish. It doesn't have all of the proper assets, playtesting or bug fixes in place, but seeing the story come together is...

    How big is your Gaming screen?

    27" @ 1080p 1ms BenQ for PC 50" @1080p Toshiba LED TV for consoles My vision is not what it used to be so 1080p still suits me well. A little extra AA when sitting close to monitor and i'm set. I also enjoy the fact my overclocked 980ti will carry me until Ray Tracing matures.

    Gameplay Reveal of DOOM Eternal Slated for QuakeCon 2018

    Welcome to LAN parties! This is how it was done from the 90's up until the mid 2000's. Standard fare as multiplayer gaming was still very limited by connections / available technology. Not nearly as many to attend these days, what with the advent of broadband internet and matchmaking services...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Official Thread

    Many doubts from trailer put to rest here. I'm glad someone found this. -"Action-oriented" gameplay. I want a slow burn if I choose (a good RPG gives you this choice) and I want to explore every corner of this seedy city. Looks like we'll get this. - Free DLC, paid EXPANSIONS (a proper size). -...

    Ryzen: A Year Later

    More RAM is next on the list as I am reaching the limits of 16GB at times. Not hitting the page file yet, but it's close. Monitor eventually :D

    Ryzen: A Year Later

    My recent Ryzen story: I was using an Intel 4790k / z97 platform up until the end of last year. This was still serving me very well, but I wanted to start running some VMs again and the upgrade itch was massive by this point.. My intention was to grab a cheap Retail Edge 8700k as my next...

    Intel retail edge winter deal.

    Hoping to see some 8700k action for the holiday deal but i'm not holding my breath. Supplies are too few and far between as it stands. Historically though, CPUs that have been released during the summer (of the same year) have been up for grabs during holiday deal. *crosses fingers* The upgrade...

    Marvel's The Defenders Official Trailer 2

    Alien resurrection was released 20 years ago... Sigourney is also closing in on 70. She looks fine for her age. That said, trailer looks promising. Really dug Jessica Jones' darker tone.

    What's your fallback card?

    If (for some odd reason) both of my 970s go down, I have a GTX 660 in the guest PC. if THAT one goes down, there is a GTS 450 in the closet .

    Corsair TX850M PSU & Type 4 Cable Kit Luck Draw!

    My Corsair H60 has cooled 3 CPU cycles in my PC: Phenom x4 955, Fx 8350 , and now my I7 4790k. No issues with fan or pump and has kept all those chips in check. Very much satisfied My current PSU fan (not corsair) seems to be making whirring noises lately. This may work very well :)
