I was going off of these two links: [link=(http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-rx-vega-gtx-1080-battlefield-1-comparison/)]LINK[/link] and [link=(http://gpuboss.com/graphics-card/Radeon-RX-Vega-XT)]LINK[/link]. Though I'm not sure what "TFLOLPS" is. I'm thinking that may be a typo and that it represe...

Yeah that seems to be the criticism of it right now. Reading through its specs, it should outperform the 1080ti. Waiting for some benchmarks....

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - SouthBendBob
are there benchmarks for it released yet? Isn't it supposed to have comparable/better performance to the 1080 except be a bit cheaper?...

I wonder which penalty they would like imposed if Trump was convicted of treason. 18 U.S. Code § 2381 [quote]Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of trea...

Is mini-ITX your primary board preference? Ryzen is great, but it looks like your choices are limited for the mini-ITX as they seem to mostly be sold out. Yes, if you switch CPUs from Intel to AMD, you will have to adjust your motherboard. ...

What socket motherboard are you selecting? Make sure it is an AM4. Using pcpartpicker should recommend a few mini-ITX boards. I saw a few on the list just now. Mini-ITX boards just came out for Ryzen, I believe....

There's a few places you could save money as barracuda mentioned. If you're only using photo editing and excel software, you could probably further reduce the processor to an i3 or even the Pentium. The Pentium is pretty much the same as the i3, but with a less capable integrated graphics, which wou...

What do you consider a decent price? I just got a 1080 founders edition from Bestbuy for $540. Given the way the market is right now, I'd say that's an ok price. RAM prices are ridiculous too. I was in micro center in Chicago yesterday and they were selling DDR4 3000 MHz @32 GB for $400. ...

Not sure how much effect mining is having on HD prices, but having recently shopped around for both SSD and HDD for a build, I would say they are pretty good. Can get a good quality HDD for $50-$100 depending on how much storage you want. For example, a WD caviar blue 1 TB was around $50 last time ...

Yeah so far it has only happened in game. I was able to play Mount & Blade: Warband, which isn't too demanding. Though if I play Civ V or Cities: Skylines, it goes starts acting up. I'm also not overclocking any of my components. I don't believe that heat is the problem as I have a monitor the...

Ok, I downloaded DiskCheckup from Passmark. It has everything labeled as "OK" and doesnt show any problems. I ran its short test, which passed. I started the game up and watched the read/write data lines during the clicking. Both showed zeros during the click and occasionally had some values bet...

Hard for me to say. From what I've been reading, PSU issues can manifest in different ways, but they generally lead to blue screens and the computer shutting off, which is what I'm experiencing. Basically, what happens is I load an old game of Civ. V that has fully displayed map. I then move ...
