re: TDGB TOTD: Still not Friday Edition
It's crazy. Had a guy hunting me, I was hiding behind a wall, was able to jump over the wall and catch him from behind. That amount of control is practically obscene in an AC game.

Well PUBG I wouldn't expect. It is just a better DayZ to me in terms of optimization.

The AAA titles not receiving SLi support within the first month is my issue. Some aren't getting it period. That second card is worth more than ppls whole system, esp when you count the block.

The combat is much improved. What makes this game is the setting. Ancient Egypt is amazing to explore.

I haven't left the first area yet and I'm enthralled by the setting. Just want to explore tombs and ruins.

I would avoid the used market at the moment. A card that has been run at full capacity 24/7 for mining is a bad deal.

I see you tweeting about DayZ pretty often but I never actually click the links. Should I take the time to redownload or nah?

Siwa is a shithole in game but a pretty badass area in Egypt's Western desert today.

Just buy one with less hours. Like an outboard.

I don't have it downloaded yet since I reset my system, but I will when I think .63 is close and I'll just have it ready to download on experimental.

False.

If they were mined correctly (undervolted) then they'll be 100% fine, no matter how many hours are on it.

It's better for a card to be running 24/7 undervolted then it is to be constantly running running off and on

re: TDGB TOTD: Still not Friday Edition
Anyone who mines seriously will have their card undervolted. Even the average joe schmo will likely have their card undervolted since they would Google all of that shit

Stability should be fine but I bet that thing is leaky. You will lose OC headroom, higher voltages to maintain stock clocks but the biggest concern is power delivery. These things sometimes show very little signs outside of coil whine etc. What kills it is just age and those gpus will have some hours on them with heavy loads.

Edt: But wouldn't advise against it. Just know what you are buying. It might be a well maintained Toyota but it also has 250k miles.

You gonna be playing today?

I jumped on some BF3 yesterday to refresh myself. Tinkered around with a 4x M4 and did pretty well. Still don't know if I like it over the RDS or not

Same, but I'm still using the R9 280 I bought off TD. That and I need to replace some of my older drives.
