Re: Games don't feel as exciting as they used to

in Milliways
I kept stopping and spending a bunch of time appreciating little things about CyberPunk. But after spoiling the possible ending after 30 hours in and game breaking bugs when it 1st came out causing me to quit until recent updates fixed (but reset) my original saves recently. What I found the most …

Looking for advice on a gpu upgrade. So, I am running this: Ryzen 7 2700X 32gb ram GTX56oTi Windows 10 - eventually will shift to 11 but not in any rush What would be a sensible gpu upgrade? Gaming-wise my concern is less about FPS but compatibility with old games (have in the past had issues with …

With the below 4gb vram requirement I think you are narrowed down to a 3gb Geforce 780ti, a 3gb gtx 1060, or a 2gb GTX 960 (should be really cheap on auction or local online marketplaces) or a 3gb Radeon card (HD and R series) depending on which drivers available and what not suit your needs better. …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I got 16gb of ddr3 1600 running at 1866mhz on the FX board and a 4.5ghz OC without really any tweaking. The free 650watt Super Nova is powering the 980ti with no problems. I remember why I liked this setup so much as a daily driver. Backup/spare/media center built. Just need to organize and setup …

That sucks... you're maybe trusting a part you shouldn't be, like a PSU... even a keyboard has gone wacky enough on me to cause wild errors. Oh it's a known decade long issue.The board was originally in my friend's work PC and had these issues from day one. EVGA SuperNova, old OCZ psu, doesn't …

I finally tested my ddr3 and got my old FX 8350 tidied up into a case. Turns out alot of my ddr3 that was on boards is bad :( extra x58 board is down from 24gb to 12gb in 2gb sticks due to this. X58 XFI board is still haunted and just hates some sticks of ram that tested fine on the 990fx board, …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

in Milliways
The stars aligned or something. I hit two yard sales claiming to have computer parts, and they actually had what us guys would call computer parts, not just a high mileage keyboard and mouse and a few manky cables. They're only borderline modern I guess, but too new for the retro thread for a …

for the Phenom ii check out the 925. Its a 95watt 2.8 quad core with good OC headroom and around $10 on the evil bay How is that a better option than an athlon ii 640? More juicy l3 cache, more instruction sets iirc and power delivery/saving stuff, voltage tolerance. By the time the 925 rolled out …
