    I assume you bought that computer vs. built it. I never understood the reasoning behind how companies build their "gaming pc's", put in a super powerful CPU with a mediocre GPU. Yes, yes, yes the 96...

  • whitey_rolls posted a message in the forum topic WTF is up with the GTX 1070 supply chain?. on the PC/Mac/Linux Society board

    You are right, I purchased the Gigabyte Windforce for $529.99 CAD, which works out to a bit over $400 in USD. I checked newegg.com today and the same card in USD was nearly $490, blew my mind. If y...

    I finally ordered a Gigabyte 1070, it's out of stock but the price was finally reasonable. I'm not expecting to pick it up for at least 2 weeks.

  • whitey_rolls posted a message in the forum topic OMG OMG GTX 1080 review is here !!! A bit disappointed (. on the System Wars board

    Tempting purchase, too bad the Canadian dollar is so weak. If this thing were truly $600 in Canada I'd buy it, but I'm sure it'll be about $800 + 13% tax. The ATI 5870 is getting a bit long in the t...

    Dollar for dollar (on operating sysytem) it's uncharted 4, but a console simply can't compete with a PC game, when the PC capabilities are limitless for mods + resolution + refresh rate. 60 FPS at 1...

    The rumours around AMD Polaris is they will be nearly as fast as Nvidia GTX980ti for around $300, it's definitely best to wait.

    @reBOOT2099: You make good points, but ultimately I still don't see how it will be worth the money. TF2, I paid $20 for in 2008, this game is like $80 (CAD) for a game without a single player campaig...

  • whitey_rolls posted a message on the post Overwatch Closed Beta Is Ending Soon.

    I played TF2 for hundreds of hours. I played two games of Overwatch and uninstalled. I know there are differences but the game to me just felt like the same old same old, not worth the $$$.

    I personally went 4k, even though 1440p at 144hz is better for gaming. My reasons were I'm not a huge gamer anymore. I still do like to game but most of the games I play aren't super demanding (Dot...
