    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I would hold off upgrading until DDR5 systems start coming out. Alderlake with the small/big core is the first CPU to support DDR5 which is supposed to come out later this year. I've already got the PC Case (Phanteks Evolve X), Asus Thor PSU (800 watt), 3X120mm QL fans, 140mm QL fans ready for...

    Do I need to build a new PC?

    I know CoD will max out all available VRAM even if its not using it. Using that much system RAM seems a bit excessive, I would try reinstalling.

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    The reason I spent $3,000 is cause I refuse to compromise when it comes to PC gaming. If I'm gaming on PC, I'm trying to max out settings and enjoy PC gaming in all its glory. It's go big or go home for me. When it comes to consoles, I can accept it for what it is. I don't expect most of you...

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    I like how you left out my reason for posting - jump in cost compared to years ago and really the purpose of the post was to say my farewell to [H] for the time being. Anyways, that's it, I'm out... I won't miss the many trolls here (but I did expect to get trolled :P) but I will miss the...

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    Let me clarify my post... I'm not looking for sympathy or asking people to beg me stick with PC gaming. I'm simply expressing my frustration with respect to the price graphics cards. I recognize SLI was a waste of money but it was well supported up until 3-4 years ago. I'm also not willing to...

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    I've been a PC gamer since early 2000s getting hooked on the original Far Cry when my friend gave me his GeForce ti 4400. In 2008, I bought my first real gaming PC with Phenom 9500 paired with a GTX 275 for $500 CAD. This quickly turned into Phenom II 965 ($150) with GTX 470s in SLI ($600), a...

    Any SLI / 2080 TI owners feeling completely ripped off by NVIDIA?

    I've had 3 generations of SLI: GTX 470s, GTX 670s and GTX 1070s. Up until the 670s, SLI was well supported but when I bought the 1070s was really disappointed with the lack of support. On the flip side, I really like the way 2 cards look in my case :P

    Is 10nm worth the wait?

    Gaming that 6700K will beat AMD hands down

    Review the game you finished recently.

    I'm still playing MVP Baseball 2005 on PC... the last good baseball game. Not a big fan of The Show...the hitting and pitching mechanics are not as fun as MVP Baseball where you actually use the stick to adjust your swing to match where the pitch is

    Intel Comet Lake Processors Could Pack 10 Cores

    From what I read it looks like it will still be 14nm meanwhile AMD will be on 7

    Is 10nm worth the wait?

    DDR5 and the PCI 4.0 or 5.0 aren't far off either...

    Ryzen laptop corrupt files after 1809 update

    If you can get into Windows, try system restore. If that doesn't work download Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and try to repair Windows. W10 almost failed on my a 3rd time couple weeks back when Windows Firewall, Defender and subsequently Norton Firewall and Windows Store (including XBOX app...

    1080 TI vs 1080 TI SLI vs 2080 TI Personal Review

    Interesting... I actually don't have Battlefield V but have all the previous Battlefields which all scaled well. If its using the same Frostbyte Engine you'd think it would be the same. That said, I'm done with SLI as well. I paid $1,400 CAD for the 2XGTX1070s and most games my other card does...

    1080 TI vs 1080 TI SLI vs 2080 TI Personal Review

    It looks like your CPU bottlenecked at 2k. Battlefield V tends to scale well in SLI. If you were using a 4k display I think the improvements in SLI will be bigger but still a single RTX 2080ti is the better option
