    Micro Center Limit 1 per household rules?

    I wish MC was closer, the closest one is 1.5 hours away, really not worth 3 hours to come up empty handed. No way to even know what they have in stock.

    Evga 3080 2x8 pin vs 3 x 8 pin, why?

    Is this really only going to be $850? That seems like a good deal considering a water block alone is at least $100 and then FTW 3 Ultra is over $800 by itself. I may try to get this because I was goin to water cool a 3080 anyways, but have not been able to source any. The GPU is the only part I...

    Vega 56 priced higher than 1080

    Even at MSRP the 1070 would make more sense because at the same performance level as the 56 you get significantly less power draw. Edit: IDK, I just found the Vega GPU's to be a disappointment, especially considering the hype. I wish it wasn't because competition is good.

    Vega 56 priced higher than 1080

    Having had a 1080 for over a year with multiple games I have had very little issues. Either I was very lucky or you were very unlucky. When running in boarderless window mode there always issues when trying to apply any driver settings or video processing in most cases, this has to do more with...

    Vega 56 priced higher than 1080

    There would be no reason to get the 56 over a 1080 at that price unless you just want AMD.

    Vega 56 priced higher than 1080

    Ah I did not realize it was a Canadian store, make sense now. Its closer to US cost with exchange rate difference, but still over priced. Edit: I still think its crazy that the EVGA 1080 FTW card I purchased over a year ago right after it came out is still the same price, such a high demand for...

    Vega 56 priced higher than 1080

    There are 1080's on Newegg for as low as $500, and Vega 56 still over priced is around $500 on there. That store you linked is price gouging.

    Will 2018 be the year of multi GPUs?

    I had nothing but issues with my 780 Ti's in SLI. The 1080 I have now has been rock solid since the day I got it, not to mention uses significantly less power. I still have no trouble maxing out settings for most all games at 3440x1440 with 60+ FPS.

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    I still install only the drivers, the installer does not require me to install Geforce experience. I also have not had to use any kinda of driver cleaners for a very long time, now to be safe I always choose the clean install option in the setup. It only take 5 minutes to re-apply any settings...

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    The thing is this issue has been here since CRTs left way back when. We should have had a variable refresh standard long ago, but PC monitors are not pulling in enough revenue for these companies. This is why TV technology is far out pacing monitors, because of the demand.

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    The problem I see is that every device you interact with adds latency. So while 20ms may not be much on its own, the keyboard, drivers, monitor, network all can add additional latency and this starts adding up.

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    20ms is pretty large actually that would affect most people running at or above only 50FPS. I also thought Gsync had a much larger range of the variable refresh rate.

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    As far as I can see it Adaptive Sync and Freesync are the same thing or am I wrong in this regard? What makes Freesync different then Adaptive Sync? And no I am not talking about NVIDIA's adaptive v-sync which is different. So really both MFG should support adaptive sync being that it is a VESA...

    Samsung CF791 or Acer predator z35p or Asus ROG PG348

    I am still waiting for 4k OLED with Gsync and HDR would be nice. I will probably stick with my LG 34UM95 until that day comes, I just wish it had Gsync at least.

    The Top 5 Best Overclocking CPUs of All Time @ [H]

    I had this CPU overclocked to 4.2GHz for 7 years and it was rock stable, to have a CPU running that much over stock for that long was defiantly the best CPU I personally ever had. I think the 920 should have been on there instead of the 980. It seems that the 920 was overshadowed by the...
