Re: GTX 970 in short supply

I got two used 290's for about £140 each, I don't think you can get much more bang for the buck than that. The ref. cooler is horrible but I got waterblocks for them right away. These cards really need water to get the best performance, they run so hot. Bench performance is about the same or a bit b...

Re: X99ish.....

Problem where?? i dont understand, please elaborate.. this card got a stock clock 850mhz, if i run a benchmark at 1100mhz, and hit 11c MAX, would you believe me.. there are many ways to get points at hwbot, are you wealthy, then get expensive GPU's, and run for globals only I dont have that economy...

Re: Youtube now playing at 60 fps

Yeah most people can't stand 60Hz even in windows after getting a 120/144Hz I hear.

One of my 22" monitors is getting old so might go for a 120/144Hz one. Good to have when I play games ... like once a month ;)

Re: Youtube now playing at 60 fps

I don't play games very often but I'm tempted to get a 120/144hz screen. Everyone says it makes such a huge difference. Hmmm.

What I'd really like is 2560x1440 on a 22" screen.

Come back later with the same or almost the same conditions with absolutely no settings changed and it's BSOD's al...

I have this same problem with the screen turning black, sometimes intermittently, sometimes I have to reboot.

Re: Dead Asus Matrix R9 290X Who else?

Hi Henk Not sure what version I was sing but I did push the memory voltage a bit to far but that did not kill it right away. I'd RMA them right away, all you can get is a no basically. I've RMA'd cards that I've ran FC blocks on and had the warranty void stickers clearly opened. Never had a problem.
