Because in tournament scenario your computers are the same, brought by tournament organizers.

Of course GOtards could still inject aimbots through USB peripherals like mouse so now you have to bring your peripherals in advance to the tournament so they can empty and check them.

You can't even bring your autoexec config in USB anymore in DOTA 2 tournaments because of GOtards, you have to write it down for the organizers and they input it to your profile.

I'll actually agree with you on Dark Souls. It's the one game that I play on my 144 Hz monitor that I can visibly detect screen tearing on with DSfix enabled and FPS unlocked.

What's my next move guys?

I have a 5820k that I have running at stock currently which let's me play BF4 pretty well on low settings at 1080p while streaming with my R9 380 4 GB. I play on low settings mainly for competitive reasons but I wouldn't mind being able to dial up the graphics settings a little bit more while also constantly maintaining 144 fps, which right now I am unable to do as my FPS usually fluctuates between 100-144 where I have it capped.

Should I overclock the 5820k to see if I'm CPU bound first? Or just take the plunge and crossfire a second 380?

The reason I haven't OC'd the CPU yet is because I think I have a questionable motherboard series from Gigabyte. I had to RMA the first one and it took a month to get the refurbished mobo back to me, so I'm being overly cautious with it but it seems kind of crazy to be spending money on 28 nm GPUs these days when we know huge advances are right around the corner with the upcoming die shrinks.

However, whenever I try and install any of the graphics drivers for the GTX 770, after the windows logo while booting, I receive a black screen.

Again though, I can work in the background, albeit I can't see shit. I've been deleting the drivers and reinstalling them time and time again, but apparently none of the Nvidia drivers work, even after updating Windows entirely.

They say 750w to cover themselves when some retard bolts a high end gpu into a 30 shekel "750w" unit they got from a shanghai street vendor.

A top-tier 500w unit and stock clocked intel cpu could power a 390 but realistically you'd want 600w+ because they aren't many 500w units that are good enough to do that (they exist though). Its partly why /g/ praises EVGA's power supplies - most of their lineup are rebranded SuperFlower units and you will sturggle to find better units than what SuperFlower make.

Nobody gives a shit. >>52166101
I already have a 750ti...on my own computer. This is not for me and I'm not going to waste this much cash on the person I'm making this for as I simply don't like them enough.

I looked up my info and I can get a slight boost on a cheap ass setup. I know what brands are available and I frankly don't give a shit. I am building a shit tier system. For a technological illiterate. I'm just trying to squeeze a little extra juice from it. That is all.

>> No.52167478

The person this is being built for is frankly NOT worth 30+ extra bucks.NO MATTER WHAT.

Hi /gcg/

well i've got a bit of a predicament i'm a casual gamer usually csgo but i dabble in games every now and again.

Well i've come to an impass the latest games don't seem to run on my computer anymore... couldn't get fallout 4 or rainbow six siege to run on my comp even with the latest drivers

my computer specs are

>Motherboard - Gigabyte X58A-UDZ
>Processor - Intel Xeon W3540 @ 2.93GHz 2.70GHz
>Ram - 12 GB
>Graphics Card - AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

Now my question is should i get a new graphics card or just buy a whole new rig?

>> No.52167652

No it doesn't have nvidia, 6100 is broadwell. Your macbook only has intel graphics. The only macbook with discrete graphics is the 15" one with intel iris pro which is like hd 5200 or something.

>> No.52167722

Not using a 250. Using a 240. Cost is less.

>> No.52167757

Furthermore I can get the apu mobo combo for about 120. So yeah...much cheaper.

Jesus tap dancing Christ I had one simple question... Is g always this autistic? It's a cheapo fun build and I had one damn question. Yes I already checked and site and the mobo manufacturers site.

>> No.52167950

I'm glad there's someone else out there like me.
I'm watercooling a stock 6600k with a Kraken x61, doesn't go above 36 degrees c even at max load, and keeps my autistic cpu temp gremlins quiet.

>> No.52167969

a good gpu should be fine.

290x if youre willing to go amd or preferably a 970.

you can always try a new processor later.

>> No.52167976

I will say one thing about skylake

they DO seem to run VERY cool

so with crimson out should i oc with afterburner still or use crimson

>> No.52168026

hmmm interesting

i've always been a radeon kiddie but i could make the jump to nvidia

do you recommend the gtx 970 4gb its a pretty expensive card - ausfag here

>> No.52168034

I threw cinebench at mine and it boosted up to 3.8.ghz at 36c and then just sat there, quite happily, with not a care in the world.

I've left it for hours at a time running [email protected], exact same results.

My only bugbear is that the i7 in my sisters laptop gets better benchmark scores. Although that same i7 also runs to 80c+ within seconds and thermal throttles. Still beats my processor, but christ I would not want a processor to be so hot.

>extra 30 bucks

>cheaper but same performance

Are you even trying?
What's your bloody price point so i can throw something together to shut you up.

>> No.52168132

By the way, the 970 is 3.5GB and doesn't have full DX12 support, so the 290X is preferred contrary to his shilling.

>> No.52168202

>jumps down throats with preferences in the same sentence he accuses shilling

>lies about 970s supporting dx12

the 3gb thing is true though but its a fastass card for the money. i dont know if all shit or just nvidia shit is expensive down under but if the prices scale i would go for the 970

>> No.52168265

there about the same price at 500 hundred

im watching reviews on both cards i like the sapphire tri-x r9 290x

but ile check out the 970 and then make a decision

Seriously I've decided talking to this board is a fucking waste of time...tech board my ass. Memorizing the nvidea product line doesn't amount to much guess my one simple question that nobody here was able to answer is best asked elsewhere. Hopefully someplace with basic fucking comprehension skills.

A simple question of terminology... All this bullshit...what a bunch of autistic morons. Well you guys go enjoy your 'tech' and talk about your wrist jewelry and meme cards...I'll go talk about builds elsewhere

the sqt is currently down, so i'll ask here.

i've never used hdmi before, coming from dvi and vga. can i use just any old cable or do i have to watch out for compatibility issues? my graphics card has an hdmi 2.0 port, but my monitor only support hdmi 1.4. is it backwards compatible?

>> No.52171030


Shit man 90hz vs 60hz hardly feels different. 144hz is legit in comparison. I feel like i can see somewhere around 240hz. If you can push the frames theres nothing to a new video card unless you have a 120hz+ monitor. its a revelation.

How about Dell S2716DG and upgrade to Pascal when it comes out.

i'm getting that monitor soon, it got great reviews, but it's still a tn panel. when it was released in october or so, it was 800 dollars, now it's like 500 - 600, so it's great value.
