Think I'll wait for Asus Strix or similar card. The reference cards are apparently very loud once the fan cranks up, which has been the norm for these cards forever. My Strix 970 is probably the quietest thing on my PC.

I have 2 Strix 970s now. Sooooo quiet, I love it. Looking forward to getting a Strix 1070.

I've had several people over who wear glasses to play on the Vive, and I make them all take them off. They all appear to be able to focus on things anyway. Hell, I have a weird issue with my right eye dilating more than the left, causes unpleasant special effects all the time...but they don't happen in the Vive. Not sure why. They should, but they're noticeably absent.

Definitely give it a spin without glasses, it might surprise you. Also, Sepharo is on the money here, laser surgery all the way.


YES, I had laser surgery, and YES, my special effects are an unfortunate side effect. I had an undiagnosed issue with that eye, they wouldn't have let me GET the surgery had they known. My surgery was a long, long time ago, and they've improved massively since then. My vision is incredibly better than I ever would have believed when I was growing up...seriously, look into it. You will eventually need reading glasses, because there's generally no way around that, but holy crap, best investment ever. Even after the vision issues (think halos around every light source, like in video games), and the terrifying process of getting the surgery done, it's the best investment I've ever made.

I agree. I had Lasik a few years ago and it was he best thing I ever did for myself. I had crap night vision before surgery, and my halos are actually better than they used to be. I had really bad astigmatism in both eyes and couldn't see crap without glasses. So nice not to have to fumble every morning just to read the clock.

Going to wait for the 1070 information. I have 970s in SLI, but it'd be nice to skip the SLI hassle and have more vram.

In metric, one milliliter of water occupies one cubic centimeter, weighs one gram, and requires one calorie of energy to heat up by one degree celsius... which is 1 percent of the difference between its freezing point and its boiling point. An volume of hydrogen weighing one gram has exactly one mole of atoms in it. Whereas... in the American system, the answer to ‘How much energy does it take to boil a room-temperature gallon of water?’ is ‘Go fuck yourself,’ because you can’t directly relate any of those quantities.” -- Wild Thing by Josh Bazell.

Haha, that's awesome.

My PS4 is louder running Uncharted 4 than my PC going full tilt on The Division. I have 2 Asus Strix 970 cards and liquid cooling on the CPU and this thing is quiet. The case has really big fans that run silent as well. Corsair...540 I think? Air? Something. Also the Corsair PSU I am using runs silent. I got really lucky, because most of my upgrade last summer was free Newegg review items or reused stuff from my old Alienware. I pretty much only paid for the video cards.

Nice. Got my CE at work and rushed home to play.

Have fun! I hear it's fantastic...got vacation time coming up for gaming soon.


4 and 1/2 hours later, I'm impressed. Of course, this is my favorite series ever, so I went in expecting to like it, but the graphics are really great, the gameplay is fun, and the story so far is pretty good. I'm a little miffed that they didn't have Greg Edmunson doing the soundtrack again, seems like change just to distance themselves from Henning. And I'm still not convinced on the whole brother thing. Again, feels like Druckman just wanted to get away from what came before and it's honestly a little forced considering NOBODY in 4 games had ever mentioned the brother. But still loving it.

I'm 3 chapters from the end of Uncharted. Then it's U4, and then back to U2 and 3...

Nice. Got my CE at work and rushed home to play.

Here’s a Batman Arkham HD cover & June release date. Not that it’s happening or anything…

Wish they'd hurry up and finalize that. I've been pretty much only gaming on the ps4 lately, and would love another Asylum run...


Been playing through them on PC for the first time. Not a Batman fan, but the games are done well and pretty fun. I keep having to look up references that they make, though. Who knew Batman had a son? (Probably everyone but me...)

And with all those hardcore spec games it is needed..... Book
Not too many game challenge modern cards, it's more when you do 4k modern gaming all details on with multimonitors. Then even the multi thousand dollar SLI rigs can struggle.

Depends on your res. 3440x1440 on a 34" monitor can make SLI 970s struggle in some games.

Despite liking pretty much everything else Blizzard has done, I just can't get into this. I've played in a couple of betas and now the open and it's just not my thing. I don't like the characters, the art, or the gameplay. Ah well, Uncharted comes out next week.

looking to upgrade monitor, been at 60hz for far too long
looking at this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236717

anyone know if Overwatch supports widescreen?

I have a 34" dell in 3440x1440. Overwatch "supports" this resolution, but you will have black bars on the side essentially limiting you to 1920 horizontal. The same shit they do with DIII and HotS.

I was also hoping they would follow the Starcraft II model and give us one more part. (Plus maybe DLC!)

fable was one of the most overrated series of all time

it was fucking garbage

and black and white was a fun gimmick for about 2 hours

Bought Fable 3 on the rec of a friend. Could barely suffer through an hour of the awful gameplay. Luckily, I was only out $5.

Play Fable 1 and 2, skip 3. And if ya have a 360 I'd suggest Fable 2 for the co-op as it's no longer supported on PC.

I REALLY would have loved to see a Black and White 3 with Nvidia Hair FX from Witcher 3

Fable 2 never came out on PC.

The Fablke series is among my favorites, so I am sad to see this happen. Hopefully M$ will give it to another developer, but who knows. Their gaming division seems to be full of monkeys banging on keyboards.
