(still low 70's for temps tho, safe ram / cpu usage), do I risk this with my 660ti?

This always baffles me. If your cpu/gpu are heatsinked properly, they will NEVER overheat. Your gpu will not give enough power to the gpu to overheat it with the stock heatsink unless something was installed wrong at the factory. You should never have to worry about temps under normal use.

That's what I call a letter and throttling from your ISP waiting to happen.

unity and advanced warfare presented the same issues. I actually still have no blue ray players on any of my PCs or laptops.

And no, it's no Skyrim. And who expected as much should get looked at.

I had to laugh, WHY did you seem surprised, even insulted, that elder scrolls online would be expected to be a lot by skyrim by other people? It most definitely LOOKS like skyrim. It is the game that came AFTER Skyrim. And you wan't to criticize people for thinking it would be like skyrim.

ESO was made with dreams of that sweet MMO Money WoW makes, but they didn't want to spend the time creating the game and testing it out to do it. The old "well fix it in release" approach they always take to the single player games. And just like they arn't the first to do just that, they arn't the first to die in the first year of release.

I will wait until the state of the pc port becomes clear. I recall 4's performance on PC being terrible.

Which was fixed not long after release and ran excellently, even when you unlock the settings to max them out.


Bullshit. The performance was NEVER fixed. Even now it runs like crap.. you have to have an extreme machine to run any of the fancy mods, and it isn't like the mods are all that fancy. The engine performance is bad, but it was also bad on consoles too. It was a pretty engine, it had lots of capabilities, but it was a slug. GTA 5 on the other hand was out the door as one of the best performing and best looking console games to date, so I'm expecting the pc port to be pretty good. Just pretty late.

I remember back when tmobile didn't suck so much, I had gotten a rogue $630 bill. I was traveling so I turned on the unlimited internet option of my phone (t68i). Within hours it was active..or so I thought. Instead what was turned on was an internet plan that was per megabyte. Well I kinda used about 20 gigabytes of data. It was fixed with a phone call because technically they did not offer a per MB internet plan at the time so they couldn't charge me for one.

News Comments > Pay for WoW Game Time with Game Gold
7. Re: Pay for WoW Game Time with Game Gold Mar 2, 2015, 16:08 JeffD
 
yea this is about as safe as they can get to NON-free to play while allowing gold to be purchased for RLM. The system never creates gold out of thin air, one person has a gold and is GIVING it to another player on a promissory note to pay his subscription. I would be interested in seeing how cheap they can become.

hardocp must be hard to get new content. -_- esp with bad headlines like that. It is an article for the stupidly obvious, if your laptop has an external gpu, you might be able to swap it out. They still however can do nothing for laptops with internal graphics.

I had guild wars 2 from day 1.. and while I don't play it any more (end game is all simple grinding, there are no organised end game raids or dungeons, and the current combat model does not allow for one) I was actually pretty baffled that the games in game store offered a disappointing assortment of outfits. Also they seem to have no interest in things like mounts. In a game with no subscription fee, I can't believe they did not capitalize on this. I generally don't touch ingame stores on my subscriptions but I would have thrown a couple bucks on GW2 for some cool outfits. Especially non-battle outfit (there was a casual wardrobe you can switch to when not fighting. I actually think this casual wardrobe windows which had its own slots was taken out of the game).

So much untapped potential in gw2.

3d died because nobody took the incentive to make it affordable. Most people want cheap tv's so tv makers never put the tech in, even to make a tv 3d ready which requires a refresh slightly above the bottom of the barrel. I would have loved a 3d tv, but don't have the money for it. I am expecting 3d movies to finally make their mark when the 3d goggles come mainstream. No flicker, each eye gets its own image, and EVERY head set supports 3d! Every headset will be able to play back 3d movies.

Sorry..devils advocate this time. How exactly do keys get "stolen" and then left in the wild long enough to be sold and used? If ubisoft is going to activate all keys before they sell them, they can't deactivate them months after.

Gamers.. you want a ubisoft game from now on? Kickass torrents is THAT way.. never have your game deactivated again.

/owns ONE ubisoft game, and only because it came with my new video card.

Id say 10mbp is fine for broadband, you could do HD video easily in that. The 1-5mbps connection plans are definitely basic connections, especially when you consider the speed of cellular data these days. I have ran 10mbit for so long and never really thought I "needed" more speed. I would much rather see back end upgrades that would a) reduce latency and b) ensure that I would SEE that 10mbit/sec to my destination.

I am so tired of all the attention one report has gottem, mp3 sales down, vinyl up. They ignore one huge factor, they are not linked! The numbers of mp3 use vs the numbers in vinyl use are in 2 different universes. Billions of songs are being converted, downloaded, and copied each day as par of normal use. Sales are down because there are not many new good releases. This happens.. the planet turns.. the sun rises once again.

Vinyl on the other hand is a small subfraction of the music world and is currently enjoying a resurgence, the reason it is seeing an increase in sales is because manufacturing is increasing. Thats great news for vinyl, but useless when you want to try and directly compare it to digital sales which are not material based.
