    Re: Recommended sound card for FPS gaming on PC?

    I hope no-one minds if I bump this thread.

    I have an Asus Xonar DX and I've not plugged it in since I have a new Asus Z170 Pro Gaming motherboard. Which is going to give me the better sound and...

    Re: Get a 290(x) now or wait for the 380X?

    I went with an MSI r9 390. Here's hoping the gamble pays off, I am betting on DX12 and on console developers using similar codepaths for upcoming PC games, giving AMD an advantage.

    Not...

    Re: Get a 290(x) now or wait for the 380X?

    Looks like my best option would be the R9 Nano (so the 3rd Fiji card, in terms of performance). There's a piece on it on the home page.

    I'll wait and see a little longer........ eek!

    Re: Get a 290(x) now or wait for the 380X?

    I really want the new architecture to be a lot ahead (IPC) on DX12 1080p gaming. I think it's going to be designed for that, right, with the HBM and the associated improved logic?

    I don't think...
  5. Re: I am having a pc-dude mental break down and need cyber-counseling.

    Doesn't sound like it's very unusual.

    They just need some internet 'spidey sense' not to trust the popups or the dodgy downloads.

    Try and set them up to never download an executable file, also...

    Re: Cpu queen : Post your results

    That's pretty awesome. Given it's 5 years old, how much would it cost second hand roughly to get 75608 Aida points? It might help out some of the linux server boys and girls with strong multi-thread...

    Get a 290(x) now or wait for the 380X?

    Hi All

    Now all the scrypt mining seems behind us, and the retail prices for GPUs will go back to the patterns they used to inhabit, I have a dilemma.

    Here in the UK, I can (prolly) get a r9 290...
  8. Re: Dual Xeon's - NUMA or SMP - I think SMP is faster...?

    Nice screenshots in post 1!

    Given the close passmark ratings, and the fact that your temps are much more low on SMP, I'd just run SMP on the box, unless there is some specific use case (like say...

    Re: Buiilding New Computer - Help with CPU choice.

    I dunno

    I would go AMD if you would like the onboard GPU performance to be high enough to game and / or if you want to stick to budget.

    However, to be as open and fair as I can manage (and I...
