I got my first desktop PC the other day! I'm looking forward to some Steam sales. They have a big sale around Christmas correct?

Insanely good box for $200. Have been keeping an eye on it around me but still $400 here. Not that I need a third pc.

Hey CAG tech support, I was wondering how you guys felt about the  Vivo Dual Monitor Mount?

I wanted to grab something that would work on my Acer 27inch and Asus 24 Inch since I have limited desk space

 

The most I would be using my Acer screen for is youtube&netflix while gaming

Put about ten hours into Homefront: Revolution.  It's meh.  With some more effort it could have been a really good game but they went with copy-paste Ubisoft formula.

I guess "meh" is good in Mooby standards if it lasted you 10 hours

I give games a fair chance unless they are truly awful (Arcania comes to mind).  As I mention in my prestigious Steam review, if the game had focused solely on the yellow-zone areas where you have to play stealth/hit-and-run before you're completely overwhelmed with maybe a final open battle at the end, that would have been a better formula.  It does little to nothing new.  No reason for these studios that are funded by publishers not to try their hand at a little improvising.

 

Meh = I'd be fine with getting it in a bundle but it's nothing I would purchase separately.

Wow, that card alone retails for around $200!

Fantastic deal for a budget box!

 

1080p Heaven for sure.

And you can probably push some stuff to 1440p, if you so desire.

Great deal considering the card would cost that alone. Closest Walmart has them for $499 but it does show 19 in stock so maybe after the holidays.

I think it's underrated.

 

I don't think it's "meh", as that is what the critics thought of it. I don't think it's fantastic either.

 

It's a good and solid Far Cry 3 & 4 style game that has a few spins on the genre - i.e. the way you swap gun parts out on the fly to build other guns; and the whole North Korean took over an urban & futuristic Philly.

 

Story and character stuff ain't anything special, either - as at every chance, before things get interesting, someone dies or gets written out of the story.

 

But, I think most players came here for the Far Cry 3&4 style open-world and gunplay, pretty much. If that's what one is looking for, it's solid and good.

So basically, "meh" is your rating for 98% of the games you play then, right?

Man, I read that and thought "You poor sumbitch" assuming he got some system barely more powerful than a mid-range cell phone but that's a sweet damn deal for two hundred bucks.  I'd have been tempted to buy that for $200 just on principle.

I can't help it if most developers refuse to innovate.  There are very few games released per year that warrant a separate purchase (unless it's like 75% off).  And almost none of those are from AAA publishers.

No one needs to worry about DoA free 2 play game ever again. 
The series is dead, the developers just announced during the tournament that DoA5:Last Round was the last game

Huh. Well, that sucks. I thought it was actually pretty fun, although it's obviously one of the more egregious abuses of the DLC concept. I haven't seen overpriced DLC that absurd since Bethesda sold that horse bikini pack.

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

Hmm, Forza Horizon 3 is running pretty bad on my new PC, even in low settings. Dropped the resolution to 1600x900. 30FPS.

 

Constant video and audio stuttering. Sometimes the FPS drops to 0. Is it possible the game isn't optimized well? V-Sync is turned off in game.

 

Specs: 3GB GTX 1060. 8GB Ram. Core i5-7400 CPU

basic premise: you may need to lower the graphic settings and consider increasing your memory from 8 to 16 GB.

I bought a 2tb back around may or june. not very impressed with it. only slightly faster than mechanical hdd. I would recommend a ssd+hhd combo much better results that way. I would suggest getting like 240gb or bigger ssd for windows and games you play the most and a mechanical hdd for everything else.

See this thread:

https://www.reddit.c...erformance_fix/

 

Basically, this thread is saying: in FM7 and FH3 both have issues: Dynamic settings and VSync in-game settings are broken in all kinds of ways.

 

Go grab NVidia Inspector and boot that.

Inside Inspector - set-up profile for FH3, cap FPS to 60, turn on NVidia's VSync solution to override in-game VSync.

 

I don't have the game, so ain't tested this myself.

It's known to run like shit on some PCs, no matter the specs, but you really should upgrade the ram on that thing to 16gb anyway.

 

EDIT: Reddit post about some dude with bad performance running 2x GTX 980s that doesn't have issues in other games if you want to read. If you want to stress test, I'd try a different game.

Thanks.  I'm running a SSD+HHD combo at the moment, but my HHD is getting little long in the tooth (5 years old) so I was thinking of replacing it since the 2TB Firecuda is $99.99 right now and comes with free Ass Creed Origins.

I would say it's a good deal but I'm also interested in assassin creed origin

I don't understand the draw of crafting a millions badges for mystery cards. Is there somehow profit in it or is it just a plus for badge collecting?

please keep crafting, thank you!

more friendslots, more profile showcases, bigger booster chance. 

 

so no profit, expect for those who sell cards.

 

bigger booster chance doesn't really give profit, as it won't ever payback.

 

I crafted only some unmarketable cards. But best is to sell.
