    Monitors Ultra Wide? Yes or No

    Not yet, my monitor refuses to die. Damn thing even had the audacity to go in remission :p. The right-hand side was slightly interlaced and now it's back to perfect display. Also I'd ignore the negative UW reviews over not enough vertical height. Those people just didn't educate themselves...

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw...

    Endgame was good fun but nowhere in the realm of a masterpiece, movie was 7/10 at best. Liked Infinity Wars better. Thanos wasn't portrayed as a comic book villain, he had actual perspective to offer. Endgame trashed all that. Thanos is now a cardboard cutout kill-em-all baddie. And time travel...

    RIP TotalBiscuit

    Imo, he was the best reviewer by far. No silly number based ratings, just pure hour-long gameplay driven reviews where you were actually shown (instead of being told) how the game plays. He reviewed games as if you were checking them out first hand; spent 15 minutes checking out the game menus...

    User Review Zowie EC2-A Detailed Review - A Flawless Mice

    I use the FK2, which is the true ambidextrous variant of the EC2 (and hence based on the legendary Intellimouse 1.1a design). By true ambidextrous I mean the button layout can be switched at a hardware level on the mouse itself which is a Godsend for left-handed folk. Most games still ignore...

    Monitors Ultra Wide? Yes or No

    I'd take letterboxing/pillarboxing over a forcefully stretched image any day. No. Just no :(. In extreme cases, if one really dislikes blackbars that much, even the zoom and crop method is better than stretching. Because even losing part of the image is preferable to a ruined aspect ratio.

    Mr. Right Liked it way more than I should have because, Anna Kendrick.

    Monitors Ultra Wide? Yes or No

    21:9 doesn't have less vertical space (which is number of pixels), it's exactly the same amount of vertical space as 16:9; which is 9 units. What you mean to say is that an UW 27" has less height than a regular 27". While that is true, it's only half the picture. One really shouldn't compare...

    Monitors Ultra Wide? Yes or No

    ^ Ultra Wide is objectively better for work and movies. There's little doubt about that. It's only under contention for gaming where I feel it's a matter of whether you have convinced yourself or not. Either you feel 16:9 is sufficient and 21:9 isn't worth the issues caused by lack of proper...

    Computer acting like it's low on RAM?

    Sounds like a faulty RAM module. Run a full Memtest, at least 3 full passes to be sure. Also remove all modules except the new ones you bought and see if the issues persist.

    Drax was present in IW? Lies. Never saw him.

    Graphic Cards Need Your Help! FPS Drops & Stuttering on High-End PC

    Can you upload some 720p @ 60fps videos of what you deem stuttery gameplay on Youtube? Upload 2 samples of 60 seconds each, one with vsync enabled and one with vsync disabled. Use Shadowplay and make sure the framerate counter is also recorded. That would present a better picture of what's...

    Graphic Cards Need Your Help! FPS Drops & Stuttering on High-End PC

    Heh, don't ask me. Keeping Chrome running is a proven fix for the stutters many people experience in some of the more buggy games (DX:HR Director's Cut being one). Running your browser in the b/g doesn't hurt performance one bit, modern OS's can easily juggle multiple gigs of memory among...

    Graphic Cards Need Your Help! FPS Drops & Stuttering on High-End PC

    If you are positive you aren't simply overanalyzing random fps dips and that what you experience is actual noticeable stutter during gameplay, then save time and request an RMA. No amount of tweaking will fix actual stuttering. Not all gpus are created equal, sometimes a gimp unit gets through...

    Online Game Deals - Steam, Amazon, Origin, GOG, Humble Bundles

    Enthusiasts say DSfix is much better than DS Remastered. No idea how true that is, never played the games myself, but removing the resolution and framerate constraints while adding stuff like DoF is a pretty big deal for a free mod. Textures already look better than Remastered on PS4Pro...

    Graphic Cards Need Your Help! FPS Drops & Stuttering on High-End PC

    Set that to 4 not 1. 1 is for ideal scenarios where you aren't experiencing any stutters whatsoever. In your case however, having the cpu buffer 4 frames might smooth out the stutters. It will introduce some input lag, but worth a try.
