so what is a good 1440p monitor if you are in a budget?

If you're on a budget, you're not looking at a 1070 Ti either. Get yourself a decent 1080P IPS monitor and a $200 AMD card. It's still great gaming.

I already get 4k netflix over my $100 Roku Pro. Oh and 4k youtube & 4k hulu & 4k hbo.

So no thanks comcast. I'm not gonna rent your bulky, slow, piece of crap cable box just to get what I already have.

It's a pretty sweet product, almost a 1080, but $50-100 less. Looks like the sweet spot is 1440P.

My regular 1070 already handles any game at 1440 maxed out though...

I could have sworn I heard Nvida say they'd never make a XX70ti.

They probably did say that, not expecting AMD to be able to pull off Vega as well as they did.

As for your non-Ti 1070, I'm sure it's fine, but you'd get another 7-8 frames with a Ti. But a 1070 Ti isn't quite there to power 4K at max detail at 60 FPS. Thus 1440P.

Also, what CJ said.

One final posting - then I'm out of here, I just can't take what is going on in this thread:
We, the gamers, should be rooting for the companies that bring the games to us. Instead, here I too often witness how the companies are prime evil and the pirates are the brave crusaders. Please, please, please, don't whine and cry and call out the companies when you get less AAA products for windows/linux because of your friendly pirates. Just don't. You supported them, you rooted for them, now live with the consequences.

I, for one, will keep paying for the games I want and will hate the pirates for harming the people that work on these games.

And now - good luck, keep gaming AND PAYING.

There's an endless belief that piracy is a victimless crime. I like the way you think about it.

The response to piracy and torrenting has been multifaceted.

1. Add DRM. This often protects that initial month of sales which is usually by far the largest revenue generator for a game.

2. Go online-only.

3. Go Free to Play.

4. Add microtransactions. Generates additional revenue, as well as keeps users tied to "official" versions of games.

I don't think any of us like any of the options above. It's also important to recognize that these aren't just responses to piracy, but also to the increasing cost of producing games in general.

Fuck it, I am going to threadjack this and make it about turtles.

Turtles are all kinds of awesome and, in some very unique cases, can turn out to be ninjas.

The only thing better than a ninja turtle? A pirate turtle because pirates destroy ninjas seven times before breakfast.

Come at me bro

When I was in high school, I was tromping through the woods and came across a little 6 inch snapping turtle. I scooped it up (carefully!) and brought home. Kept that sucker in an aquarium all winter. It was a total ninja. I'd plop in 10 gold fish once a week or so, and he'd snap them all up in about 30 seconds and burp out the scales after each one. In the spring I let him go where I found him. Very cool pet.

Mary Pat Christie caught in distracted driving crackdown ordered by governor's attorney general.

Well, don't forget that this is the wife of Governor Christie who closed NJ state beaches, and then went to the beach. Laws are for the little people.

Dude, who put a bee in your bonnet?

I don't like people hijacking an indie's thread the promote another competing product. That I backed D:U for $50 is irrelevant. I wouldn't do it in any game's thread. Have some standards.

P.S. You'll likely reply "well Kxmode you talk religion all the time, " and this is true. The fundamental difference is no one releases a game about Jesus. The Bible isn't exactly competing against video games. IOW apples and oranges.

1. I'm pretty sure I've never attacked the fact that you bring up religion, although I may have argued points that contradicted scientific fact.

2. It would be stranger if someone didn't bring up Overload. The games are so similar and will be released near the same time.

3. Your argument is like saying don't bring up Elite:Dangerous in a Star Citizen thread. I'm pretty sure you've never argued against that before. It's strange to pick this game as your hill to stand on.

4. No games about Jesus? Did you forget about Left Behind?

5. Decorum? This is Blue's News!

Most of the complaints appear to come from people with hardware specs like two 1080TIs and an i7-4770K.

#RichWhiteBoyProblems

Hmmm, I seem to remember when Ubi said it was essential to have always-online DRM and that it 'enhanced' the experience. Crazy

global resources strained to breaking amid infinite growth economics pipe dream, more at 11. but first, here's more on this year's new fucking iphone we built with precious, finite minerals ripped from the earth's crust and designed for you to throw in the fucking garbage next october!

I think that most of those are recycled, and the rare earth metals extracted for reuse.
