Oh, first game was L4D in 2009. I'm sure that box thingy you get for participating in the promo will be something awesome like an additional 5% off the amazing 30% discounts coming in the Summer Sale!

The box will be used for gem sack storage.

I don't really watch Let's Plays very much, but when I did want to look at actual gameplay, I did usually pick his videos. So while I'm not a fan fan, still hit me quite a bit.

I'm guessing that might be the cheapest the 1080 Ti has been so far by quite a bit here. Is it?

Also, isn't the 11xx series cards around the corner?

The 11xx series might be out in August.  And I'm sure at limited availability for 1180's.

Usually I skip a gen between card upgrades but thanks to Nvidia taking their sweet-ass time with the 11s i'm probably gonna get one

What's the incentive for upgrading GPUs now? I mean e-peen is always a thing, but are y'all all rocking 4K nowadays? It seems that the latest cards all max out 1440p and I dont see what is the 'next big game' that promises to push pixels (let alone the fact that we rarely fakeybro AAA games anyway). 

 

What are you going to play to push the new hardware?

An 1180 ti? Might be an all time low.

The Division 2 is suppose to release in March of next year. It's not going to take 4K to enjoy but it would be the next big thing I imagine.

Pretty much my sentiments.  I don't think I'll be going 4k/1440p anytime soon which is why I'll probably settle for an 1160.

why dont you do what mysterd does and use a low end video card to run at 4k so you can have more desktop space

For most people, I don't think there's much incentive to push 1440p/4K. Namely, prices are high. Not everybody's going to invest in more expensive CPU's, GPU's, or whatever.

 

Sure, I have a 4K monitor - but I bought that b/c at that time b/c I really wanted a 1440p monitor at that time. Saw a Samsung 4K for similar prices on sale - just decided to go with that instead. Just gotta pump up AA to the moon, to stop any sort of blur or anything at 1440p. Two birds, one stone here, as I can run 1440p on everything pretty much - and I'm all set here for the inevitable 4K future.

 

Oh, BTW - that SC15 laptop from EVGA came back in on sale the other day at $1000 and I jumped on it. Good thing I did, b/c now it's back at $1900. Can't wait for this to, more or less, replace my current gaming laptop: Acer Nitro V15 Nitro (VN7-591G-79YZ).

 

EDIT:

970 is not low-end. It's one of the higher ends of the 9xx series.

What's above it (in that series)? Maybe the 970 Ti, 980, 980 Ti, and Pascal's Maxwell's Titan?

 

Aging might be a better word choice for it, as the 10xx series is out and that the 11xx series is right around the corner.

 

I run most stuff here at 1440p at Medium-to-High at 30fps to 60fps (depends per game - I often find somewhere I'm fine with in-between to lock it down via NVidia Inspector or MSI AB), which was my intent anyways. If I can run 4K with some games (such as older titles at that resolution and WWE 2K series & MK series) - cool, but it really just ain't expected here for me to do 4K on everything just yet.

 

4K everything seems to be in the 1080 Ti range.

Yesterday's higher end is today's low-mid tier.  The 970 is comparable to the 1060 3GB.  Which is definitely mid-tier and more in the shallower side of the mid-tier pool.  I'd say the low end is the 1050 neighborhood and, while there's plenty of cards to be had worse than that, they're barely worth mentioning from a modern gaming perspective.

 

Unless you're one of the weirdos on Craigslist selling "Screaming Gaming Computer with GTX 285 - Plays League of Legends on Medium Settings GREAT"

You guys following this GDPR stuff? Super MNC, Mirage, and Loadout all being taken offline because of it.

All games no one plays, but I don't see this benefiting video games industry if it hurts indies and/or old games.

No arguments there.

Certainly got my $100 worth out of this 970...and still am IMHO, to say the least.

It's just convenient reason to close servers.

 

Like Mirage servers are running until 31th so they'll need to be compliant to do that too.

Mirage failed hard, so it easy to see why they would want to do that, they even gave game free like month after it was released.

I expect it's more an excuse to sunset old and abandoned games.  "Don't blame us for shutting down this game that gets 15 players a month; the government made us do it."

 

I mean, I'm sure it legitimately breaks the rules but the devs see it cheaper/easier/better to shut it down than to fix it.

Dev's could always re-work games to make offline modes and/or add LAN support.
