RIP GTX 970 & Nvidia

Spoiler

 

27-34fps. Seems like you need 1080 to play at 1080 even without AA.

So, VHQ = probably Very High Quality, I'd guess?

So, what about benchmarks at High? Medium? Low?

 

EDIT:

Also, are there any framerate killing settings (think like TressFX, GodRays, etc) here that when turned-off or turned-down a bit could get a huge framerate boost?

I'm bored, I've got tomorrow off... I want something fun to play.  NMS has bored the pants off me.  I think I'm going to shelve it and revisit it in a couple of months to see if it's improved.  I've got a ton of games in my library (not as much as some of you).  What games have you actually enjoyed recently?  Either Sandbox or story.  No shooters or RTS.  Maybe RPG?  I've already got enough Seek N Finds.

That credit should work on anything. I used it to buy a BR/DVD drive for my desktop when I upgraded it a few weeks ago.

Yeah; the days of great Amazon DVG deals since Tony left that division are very far and few between.

These days, yeah - you can get much better deals for hardware on Amazon.

Damn! I missed the GMG Deus Ex: MD glitch.  :-(

 

I probably would've bought it at that price and played it on release. Oh well. Now I'll have to wait like everyone else for the next round of opportunity on an AMD Newegg glitch. Although, even that seems less likely with how they've priced it. So now I'll have to wait for the Squeenix price drop off. What a world, what a world.

Wait a sec - what GMG Deus Ex: MD glitch did I miss? :(

Thanks

 

He's actually selling them for $25 for retail version of pro win10

In general - usually, OEM Windows versions are mobo/CPU-tied; you can't call M$ for free tech support (you have to pay for it); and you pick b/t either 32-bit or 64-bit editions (you don't get both).

 

I don't know if there's other W10 specific extra stipulations on their OEM versions - but, that should be the gist of it, for the most part.

 

System builders often go OEM versions to save some $.

Isn't gaming laptop an oxymoron?

It's more like a paradox, TBH.

"Yay" at MGS5 Definitive.

Now, where's that PC port of MGS HD Collection?

The last and final dlc for those that play Fallout 4.

Spoiler

SOLD...especially since I already bought The Season Pass before the SP price-increase.

[shrug]

 

How come a lot of times, the DLC's/expansions for Bethesda games often have way more personality than a good majority of the base-games?

 

This has seemed like the case for:

Some of the Fallout 3 DLC's - i.e. The Pitt + Point Lookout;

Morrowind expansions - i.e. see Tribunal and Bloodmoon;

Oblivion expansion - i.e. Shivering Isles;

Skyrim DLC's - i.e. see Dragonborn + especially Dawnguard;

and now it looks like the case w/ Fallout 4 DLC's - i.e. with Nuka World; haven't touched Far Harbor yet, so can't speak on that.

Who broke this thread? 9+ hours with no post? I can't abide that!

Sorry, but I've been playing the hell out of GTA5 PC (Story Mode) a lot of last night and a fair deal of today.

I'm loving it, so far.

V.  Has first person view now too, but I prefer the classic.  Something about GTA V makes murdering random people feel so much more real.  I almost feel bad sometimes. 

GTAV is still sitting in my backlog. I need to play more of that.

 

Have the bro's done any GTA Online yet...?

Anyone want Spellbind and/or the music/PDF?

For free??!?

If "Free", sure - MysterD loves free stuff.
