  • BassMan posted a message in the forum topic Anyone Have the Asus ROG Swift with either a 970 or 980?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I have the Swifty and 970 SLI. To take full advantage of the monitor (maxed settings at high framerate), you are going to want 970 or 980 SLI as opposed to a single 970 or 980. If you are only targeti...

    @Byshop: I actually have 4 monitors but only use 2 (stacked vertically) because I have beastly speakers on my desktop. I only use the Swifty for gaming though. I agree that multi-monitor setup is g...

    @Byshop: I couldn't handle those bezels. I think VR is what you need if you have that setup. Unfortunately, the VR tech just isn't at the right level yet.

    I never got into multi-monitor gaming because of the bezels. Wouldn't something like a nice Ultra Wide 21:9 be sufficient?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcaktV1iiGk

    The single player campaign was very linear and scripted and didn't do anything new. I expected more from the Dead Space guys. It was an alright campaign, but ultimately disappointing. Some MP games ar...

  • BassMan posted a message in the forum topic "Can PC do HD gaming yet?". on the System Wars board

    I am not sure if people are trolling or just clueless, but you people realize that the HD term just refers to a resolution right? 720p HD = 1280x720 pixels in Progressive Scan1080p HD = 1920x1080 pix...

  • BassMan posted a message in the forum topic Assassin's Creed Unity poor performance.. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Personally, I am not a fan of SMAA, TXAA, and especially not FXAA. They blur the image. MSAA looks good, but is a performance hog. All AA adds input lag also, which I despise. Part of the reason why I...

  • BassMan posted a message in the forum topic Need advice upgrading or going SLI with graphics card.. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I had 670 SLI previously and just upgraded to 970 SLI. The 2 GB 670 is relatively useless for future games as you get a VRAM bottleneck. That was the main reason for me upgrading. I would recommend...

  • BassMan posted a message in the forum topic is my system viable for next gen games?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I normally would say just drop a GTX 970 in there, but your CPU will bottleneck it. So, you are looking at a new MoBo, CPU, GPU, and possibly RAM depending on what type you have. The rest of the stuff...
