Re: GeForce GTX 980 with GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366

That is kind of what I was thinking; primary use for this machine during the day is Visual Studio, 3DS Max, Blender, SQL Server and other general development type tasks but at night I tend to game with friends. I noticed I am well below the recommended and as such have not yet gotten FarCry 4, Evolv...

GeForce GTX 980 with GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366

Hello everyone it has been a good few years since I have posted here and I am a little out of the hardware loop at the moment. I have a X58 based system (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128362) with 12 GB RAM, and a i7 920 installed with two GTX 285; its starting to get a bi...

Re: Nvidia GPU of Choice

When I am doing something graphics intensive on each screen it splits out the processing; for example I can be doing 3d rendering off of one GPU running the monitor to one side while using visual studio and photoshop on the other to modify the renders. Most importantly at least to me I have a very s...

Re: Nvidia GPU of Choice

Thanks for all of the suggestions so far. I guess I should have been more clear as far as the two GTX 285's are concerned. I do not run them in SLI; since I primarily use this computer as workstation and a gaming box as a second function I find having a dedicated card for each monitor to be more ben...

What card would serve me best of the new line the 460, 470 or perhaps the 480? I am...

Re: 4 player single screen games for PS3?

Warhawk allows for 4 player offline, and you to join games with up to 28 others online. CoD4:MW1, CoD6:MW2. I think R2 supports 4 but I would have to confirm this one, Resistance 1 does (deathmatch). IIRC post the titan patch UT3 also supports 4 player split screen (non campaign).

Any particular reason? Being open source I am worried it might go out of favor and become an abandonded format at some point. Then I am stuck with a lossless archive which is not well supported.

I plan to keep a lossless version of all of my music and transcode down to MP3 or WMA from that when I am taking any of the music with me on a portable device. The big question is what is the most solid and steady...

Amazon.com gift card(s).

Newegg certificates are a good choice as well but you are a bit...

Scorpiuscat, what version of Windows 7 are they handing out at the event? Is it the 32 bit or 64 bit version? I went to the Vista launch event where they gave us all Vista Ultimate 32 bit version, free is free but would be nice if they were giving out 64 bit versions. :D

InFamous is great, when I am not job hunting I can't put the game down. I think I am closing in on the end of the game and I am disappointed it will be over, I may play it again as Evil. InFamous is great over the top superhero/supervillan fun. :D
