That's not a sword. That's a dagger.

If you can throw it it's a throwing knife

Fair point (pun intended).

Mr. Tact wrote on May 4, 2019, 11:05:
I have always considered ST:DS9 as second only to ST:TOS -- simply because DS9 couldn't have existed without TOS. Those are the only two Star Trek series which I own the DVDs of. I was sorely disappointed ST:DS9 didn't get a remaster, that would have been incredibly awesome. I loved the long story arcs, it is one the things that made B5 so good too.

As a fan of DS9, it would be remiss of me not to give a nod to Babylon 5 as the concept template. As the story goes J. Michael Straczynski pitched Babylon 5 to Paramount who turned it down, but later took significant aspects of the pitch and repurposed them into DS9.

My system kept restarting with 850 watts. Since I'm this close to 1K might as well go big.

No. I can't. See above. 600 Watts won't cut it.

Whatever it is that was causing these restarts it certainly wasn't your PSU. *IF* it did not have any defects.

It was the power supply. Don't know about the defect part.

CJ_Parker wrote on May 3, 2019, 19:35:
Guru3D correctly recommends a 600W to 650W PSU for systems with a custom 1080Ti.
AnandTech measured ~400W total system power consumption with a 1080Ti installed and their test rig ran an OC'ed six core Extreme Edition Intel CPU (i.e. quite a bit more power draw than the i7-8700).

A 600W PSU is usually sufficient for a system with your specs and whatever it was that made your system restart it certainly wasn't a power limit with a 850W PSU installed.

I have a Asus Maximus X Hero, 9900K, 32GB RAM @ 3200MHz, RTX 2080Ti, 1x Samsung 970 2TB m2.SSD, 1x Samsung 840EVO 1TB EVO SSD, 1x Samsung 860EVO 4TB SSD and all of that shit is "only" powered by a 1000W PSU. My system should be in a constant reboot loop if your restarts were caused by something to do with power restraints Wink .

...

The thing is I didn't ask for your advice. But hey, thanks for the share. Sounds like you have a system to meet your needs. Cool on you.

out. Hear me out. Hear me...
I'm going out on a limb here but instead of pre-purchasing a game try waiting until the reviews come in from peeps like Vince Verdict or ACG.

Good advice but I tend to stay away from random Youtube personalities for reviews because well, what they might like I don't, and visa versa. I prefer aggregates like MetaCritic and Rotten Tomatoes.

I respectfully disagree. It had many of the same issues as Anthem. The "sameness" of planets. The "sameness" of gameplay. After a few hours you played the entire game.

You put 42 hours in upon release. That's a lot more than "a few hours."

I have that.

CPU: I7-8700
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080TI 11G
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4-2133
MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming
1st Drive: SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 500GB

Power Supply: CORSAIR AX1600i (1600 Watt)
Displays: (2) LG 27" 4K UHD IPS
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

I need specifics.

That build looks a little unbalanced in a couple spots. Why do you have a 1600W PSU? Did you use it to run a quad SLI rig or summin'? :o

My system kept restarting with 850 watts. Since I'm this close to 1K might as well go big.

CJ_Parker wrote on May 3, 2019, 13:56:
You could easily get away with a full kW less.

No. I can't. See above. 600 Watts won't cut it.

CJ_Parker wrote on May 3, 2019, 13:56:
And why that slow RAM? I'd swap that out for DDR4-3200 CL14 or, if you're on a budget, CL16. The difference between DDR4-3200 CL14 and CL16 in games is between 0% and 3% max but you'll get a nice boost coming from DDR4-2133. You're unnecessarily limiting your i7-8700's potential.
The DDR4 prices are still dropping at the moment but might be on the rise again when Zen2 hits in Q3. It might be a good idea to upgrade this summer.

I actually have 4000MHz, but it is capped at 2133 because the mobo requires overclocking to fully use the 4K MHz. I don't plan on OC'ing now but I may in the future and I wanted RAM that's ready to go for that purpose.

CJ_Parker wrote on May 3, 2019, 13:56:
If you sell the PSU and replace it with a new unit in the 600W - 700W range,

CJ_Parker wrote on May 3, 2019, 13:56:
sell the RAM and buy a new DDR4-3200 CL16 kit

Moog wrote on May 3, 2019, 12:03:
A new definition of 100% that I was previously unaware of!

I still 100% regret purchasing this POS!

That right there is why Software-as-a-Service doesn't work for Games. We're talking decades of what consumers expect from games they purchase. For a premium they don't expect a feature-incomplete live-service that grows over time (unless the publisher explicitly states so with crowdfunded or early access). That leads me to a more significant issue in that Games-as-a-Service is a scam for two reasons.

First, under the law products are defined in two categories. Either as a good or service. Assets can be tangible or, in the case of video games or movies purchased online, intangible objects. When you buy a good, you own a limited, legal copy of the IP. It is limited because when you buy a Toyota Camry, for example, you don't own Toyota or the blueprints to a Camry. But you do own a copy of the car. It is yours to do with as you please and the seller relinquishes their rights.

Conversely, products like World of Warcraft and Spotify are services because you pay to access a service offered by a provider. Your access to the service is contingent on a routinely scheduled transaction. The problem here is Games-as-a-Service is touted as a service when in reality they are goods.

The second reason relates to the first. You don't have ownership control to GAAS products because the publisher could shut down access at any time resulting in a bricked product. That's exactly like the publisher breaking the CDs of your game. Unless you're of the small percentage of people with the knowledge to build a server architecture emulator, most won't be able to play their legally purchased good.

Both of these are ethically right. However, not strictly speaking unlawful because in the United States (unlike other countries) there's no clear precedence dictating the legality of GAAS products. Big publishers like this because it means they can spend less money to develop a game, get it out to the market faster, and if it doesn't pan out or become profitable they can kill the game with impunity.

What are the reasons? I can understand not wanting to support Epic, but why delete the game on another platform? It isn't an Epic exclusive.
