  1. The M.2. is only superior for those that use HDD, otherwise its completely useless. For gaming I would avoid RAID, its not necessary with today's SSD speeds and capacities. I would also be wary of ROG products, I went with the TUF z370 board with the 8700k. 4k isnt 'that' demanding for video games any more with the 1080ti. You're also limited to a 28" monitor currently. for VR its also unnecessary for SLI, its actually faster to run all PCI lanes on one GPU rather than split it. The gaming rigs of top build 5 years ago no longer apply, and the 10 years plus designs are also a thing of the past. 2 SSD, one boot, one storage, one GPU, liquid cooled CPU, no optical drives. I run this setup and I still play games on ultra at comfortable frames on an outdated 970FTW+
  2. I recently got Destiny 2 on pc and I also got back into playing GTAO. I cant find any form of clan remotely related to us in Destiny 2, and I havent seen anyone active in the group on GTAO. Does anyone here play either of these on PC?
  3. Many of us are plagued by a nearly unplayable game. Low frames or no sound. Expect more after optimizing or upgrading
  4. What title do you use? I just switched back from Predator to Cartographer, but with so many titles. How do I choose?
  5. Yea. I think tac specifically said no. Also selling ships and accounts is a terms violation of star citizen
  6. I can't justify the additional price of the i7 over i5
  7. I'm only subscribing to star citizen. its interesting. But not subscription interesting.
  8. Do you mostly do workstation functions? The v3 socket and i7 are better suited by costs for workstation functions. Don't mistake what I say. It will play games quite well.
  9. Keep an eye on Atlas Defense Industries. I was there and heard more than I should have. The owner JayC and one of his lackeys Hav0k have established more than one time they will stop at nothing to be number 1. They have a goal of overthrowing the UEE if possible. Imperium is filled with some decent guys. A bit on the sensitive side. But with some good intentions. xplor was founded by a banned member of imperium. And we all know test is filled with a bunch of goon squad members. An army of auroras is just an army of auroras. Don't let numbers try to show you what their power is. Numbers are very deceiving.
  10. Are you on a laptop? I'd suggest against laptops for any long term solution to gaming they are vastly underpowered for their cost compared to desktops. And upgrade capabilities are very limited. if you are. You can hook up a new ssd externally, format it, swap it out for your internal hdd. Fresh install windows. And put your hdd as an external to retrieve all the things you desire off of it.
  11. No vr support. Yet. chris Roberts has already stated the rift will get support before any other vr headset. even then. People are playing sc with a rift currently
  12. I would have suspected the motherboard as well. if your issue persists after CPU swap; Have a look at your ram
  13. Still listing 1151 as most cost effective gaming build at this time. Looks like I'm going with an Asus z270 powered atx.
  14. Little Jealous..... But I'm submitting a packet to go from veteran to army warrant officer and fly some helos. so im not too jealous yet
  15. If it was on sale and cheap enough, round 20$, id pick up a copy, maybe...
  16. Yea, Im just going to wait for the 2066 motherboard and x series 4.0ghz i5 at a cheap price to come out. Gaming really doesnt use too many cores, so this new i5 will be quite literally ground breaking for the pc gaming market
  17. Ryzen= Socket AM4, 1500X - 3.5ghz, 4 cores, 8 threads, 4x512kb L2 Cache, 16MB L3 cache, 65W. Intel= Socket 2066 (R4), Core i5-7640X, 4 core, 4 thread, 4.0 Ghz, 4x256kb L2 Cache, 6Mb L3 Cache, 112w Both Processors support 16 PCI-e 3.0 Lanes and both support dual channel DDR4 2666 Ram. If anyone is familiar with gaming, hyperthreading to 'synthetic' cores always brings a diminishing performance, as youre asking one core to do the work of two. I guess it comes down to cost eh? 242$ for Intel 189$ for AMD AMD's closest processor to clock speed is the 1600X or 1800X, and both of these cost more than the Intel Processor (even if by a few dollars) To top it off Intel is launching a new socket 2066 to go with it, and that brings amazing promise. Say the i5 7640X somehow gets outdated, I can assure you Intel will run with this new socket for years to come, and I can already tell you that I could just overclock the proc by a small amount, and switch to liquid cooling should the heat build up too much. Did I mention Intel works better with nVidia GPU's? Which still run the market as best GPU. New X Series Intel CPU's will be my next upgrade. Ryzen can stuff it with its slow clock speeds.
  18. Yea.. Ryzen has a lot of cores and threads. But Intel still has a 4.0 gig BASE clock speed in their 239$ proc If your gonna build a powerhouse to do other stuff sure, but the average gamer will not see a benefit from that many cores, most of the time you see a diminishing return with large core counts. 4 core, 4 thread, 4.0 ghz with 16 pci-e channels is more than enough for anyone with a single gpu (mind you, you dont see a real benefit with standard gaming with dual gpu) and looking to still get over 60fps. Ill stick with intel, they still have ryzen beat in the gaming market. All the tests with ryzen, by the way, use titan x gpu's to fluff these numbers.
