Yes, the mail does not operate for free and the mail in rebate does not cover shipping.

Well, this is a very old FPS game but I don't know of any bear rug or turbines. It's called Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror.

I suggest buying a second pair with the same model to avoid potential mismatch. You can also buy a matching used pair from Ebay as I recently did so. Saved some money by doing that.

How come? I've looked at multiple items like PSU and graphics card and the lowest price points to November 2 years in a row. Heck, I got a Samsung 500GB SSD for $130 last Black Friday.

While MMOs wouldn't benefit from the higher resolution, however, the game will look better at the higher resolution (1440p).

Considering the 8th gen will require the new Z370 chipset mobo, the prices of the motherboard are going to be high. We don't know how much yet but people speculate in the upwards of $200.

I have about 65 hours in that game so far. I had a rough start learning the mechanics and combat but it shouldn't take long to learn anyway. I won my first match about the 15th round.

Player's Unknown Battle Ground (PUBG). It is still in beta and it's beating records for the most active players on Steam.

That's understandable. The fuss is how good the fps is. The goal with a 1060 is 60 fps and medium settings.

It is not overkill for sure. It is the sweet spot for 1080. It depends on the games you play though.

No there are ways to fix it. You can replace the splitter (if it is applicable in your house, and if you have access to it). That was the problem in my house. Your best bet is to call the cable company and they can determine where the issue is. They have the equipment to test the signal from their end to your house, and from your house to the router.

Sorry, I meant to say $400 for a reference card.

It could be the signal that's coming to the router. There could be a bad splitter connecting the main cable to the wall jacks around the house. In my house, it's in the second floor master bedroom. There is a box where the wiring is connected.

I've put 25 hours so far and got a decent amount of tips since I won #1 with 11 kills last night. I usually avoid landing in cities but rather close to them. It gives decent advantage with loot.
- Loot with Tab and not F to avoid the animation.
- Staying at the edge of the circle gives you the best advantage. Even if you got a vehicle, stay at the edge to avoid people who camp. The best loot is dead people loot (yup).
- AR + 4x or 8x scope is the best you can do for yourself.

It's not easy since the measures will depend on the CPU as well. Easy way is to google gpu + cpu combo for results.

The only possible way to monitor bandwidth for all network devices is through the router. Mainstream routers offer the option to monitor the overall bandwidth but only higher-end models offer specific device monitoring. Your other option is dd-wrt.

I'd stay away from refurbished unless it was the manufacturer. I bought a Dell XPS refurbished from Dell and I can swear they have great service when mine came with a bent corner. I say this is a better deal, check this 27" IPS, 75hz, Freesync for $135

The HyperX Cloud is decent but not true surround. It will distinguish directions in games but nothing more than that.

On another note, I have 1070 and an i5-3570k. Both running stock (the 1070 is factory OC'ed). I get between 65-80 fps on high-ultra settings.

144hz monitors also capable of running refresh rates 60-144. If your AAA titles can run above 60fps it's still a gain.

If you NEED a laptop that also happens to support gaming, it makes sense to buy a gaming laptop. But if a laptop is not necessary I don't see how a laptop is better than a desktop.

I suspect AMD is doing a lot of updates on Ryzen. What I would do in that case is keep a copy of the current driver version before I update. If a new update comes up, you already have the older version for recovery.

  • 34 months ago

While the higher the frequency the better, it's only a marginal increase in benefit. I say 3200 is pretty speedy. You also need to check the latency. This particular one is 16-18-18-38-2N which is not the fastest.

That's one option. You can do hardware check from the BIOS if there is, or format Windows.

This error points to a lot of things including corrupt drivers. Try this Driver Verifier option. Hit the start menu and type verifier.
