Anyone have any thoughts on a GTX 1060. I'm tossing up either Asus or MSI at this point. Any other brand recs - excepting Sapphire and Gigabyte as my experiences with them have been bad? I've seen some good reviews for some other brands like HIS, Zotac, PNY, but don't know anything about them.

Yeah, I hope it's a thing. I'm returning my Gigabyte RX 480 as A) it's defective B) it's garbage. The thing runs at 80c under load! And Gigabyte support? Mon-Fri 9-5. Seriously? For a global multi-national company where people the world over will obviously need immediate support on their products and they're too cheap to provide it? Never bought Gigabyte before, never will again.

So after spending the weekend doing a hell of a lot more research I'm either looking at grabbing an MSI or Asus board instead, or switching gears and going with a 6G Nvidia 1060 - either EVGA, MSI, or ASUS.

Yeah, the upgrade option expired. Besides most mods will never be ported over including SkyUI so there's not a whole lot of point in grabbing it.

SkyUI not in the works for Skyrim SE

So what? When has politics ever been anything but a dirty affair? I don't see Corey bitching about how mainstream media fucked over Bernie and raked Trump over the coals every chance they got. Pot meet kettle.

I remember Barney Miller as a kid, great show.

I never really get the "too little too late" comments that get thrown around whenever a dev tries to update a game that wasn't what it should have been at launch. If you paid $60 for the game, isn't developer support post launch a good thing?

It's the PR Fluff piece that totally ignores that the game launched without explicit features.
But you don't sit there and try to polish yourself up by saying 'we spent 5 years developing a game, 6 weeks updating a broken game (even after changing the release date multiple times), 7 patches, and THEN have the balls to talk about adding crap to a game instead of offering what was original promised.
Not to mention this is the 1st response from Hello Games beyond patch notes since the games launch.

Had they been upfront and honest about features, reduced the price of the game, and not had a communication blackout, things (pretty sure) would be different from a consumer standpoint. But as it stands, Hello Games can go fuck themselves.

With a big floppy penis!

"Lt. Scott Shaw of the Reno Police Department told KOLO that shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday, two drivers got into an argument apparently over a parking spot. According to Fox 6, both parties involved in the argument were armed and a 33-year-old man was shot dead at the scene."

And the GOP says gun control is a bad thing. I suppose it isn't...from the point of view of a social Darwinist.

Farm Simulator 17 obviously needs an Ant Farm DLC, right Ant?!

That honest trailer was weak sauce.

So let me guess the things to come will cost money, right? All those things that they said you could do in the base game will actually cost you is what I'm wagering on. I still don't forsee it making a difference. What's the point of having a huge universe if you're just on one planet doing a survival sim there?

On a more common sense approach, the GOP is always complaining about voter fraud and the need for voter id laws. Yet somehow, they have a majority in the House, in the Senate, something like 30 of the state legislatures and just won the Presidency. What percentage of the representation do you think would be GOP if it wasn't for all this cheating? 90%? It doesn't even pass the smell test.
Interestingly Dems got more votes for House, more for Senate, and more for POTUS. Yet they control none.

And yet if the situation were reversed they'd be screaming 'Bloody Murder!'. We wouldn't hear the end of it. And of course they had no problem with it in Florida with Bush and Gore.

What's aggravating is where the base game is on sale but not the DLC...yet. I want to pick up Season of Infamy for Arkham Knight but it's not on sale even though the base game is. Same with FO4, some DLC is on sale but not the season pass, grr.

Well it's about 4 years since I last upgraded my card - ASUS 3GB 7980 - but it's been on it's last legs for a little while now so for Xmas today I treated myself to a new Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G. It was $40 off for Black Friday at Canada Computers and there's one just down the street from me so I popped over and they weren't even busy so yay me. I'm effing amped to get this installed and fire it up so I'll catch y'all on the flipside!

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot it comes bundled with Civ 6 so that saves me $80 clams right there...schwing!

Yeah some deal, buy one game at full retail and get the other one "free", even though buying most games on sale together works out to be cheaper - by 5 bucks - anyway. Rolleyes

And these things are still way cheaper on key reselling sites.

My biggest gripe is indie games that are priced $20 that go on sale for $10-$15. These games would have been $1-$3 in past sales (talking about years and years ago). Now the only games in that price range are unfinished or completely junk games that aren't even worth a dollar.

As always value is relative but I don't disagree. Point in fact, I feel that way about most games triple A or otherwise. I don't feel the vast majority of games are remotely worth what they're asking us to pay for. Most games have always been drastically overpriced IMO, which is why I have zero problem either waiting a couple of years for them to come down to a reasonable price or just not bothering with at all. The only ones devs/pubs hurt with high prices are themselves. And this is especially true of those of us who live in countries like Canada and Aus where they expect us to pay more because our dollar is worth less yet have zero problem giving other countries like Russia, China, et al. a break. Fuck...that...noise.

As for Steam and most other sales they've been pretty meh for years now. I don't even get remotely excited for them anymore.

As always there's never been any shortage of skilled workers, just greedy employers who don't want to pay people decently for their work.

You don't know what you're talking about. As someone who's done some hiring in the tech industry, I can absolutely tell you there is a shortage of skilled workers. I've spent months interviewing people from all over the country for some positions. Or do you think $150K/year salary isn't decent pay?

The real problem is the abuse of the H-1B visa program by companies taking advantage of poor oversight and enforcement.


You're full of shit. You're the one who doesn't know what you're talking about. These corps advertise because they're required to by law before they hire a foreigner. They make the requirements impossibly high, and interview just enough various people to ward off any claims of ageism/sexism/racism, and then they get their HB1s. I got out of tech because I saw that's where it was headed and more and more people - domestically - are doing the same because they see the writing on the wall. Just google "workers forced to train foreign replacements" and there is no end to the stories of it happening today. So yeah, Trump doing this is a good thing. Force employers to hire at home or they can fuck off and leave the country. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

What makes you think Putin won't do it now that his pal Don is in charge? I'm sure if he asks nicely the Rooskies will do just that. If I was Snow I'd be looking to head to Argentina or something PDQ!

Brain drain? More like put Americans back to work. This was a big part of why Trump won. We see no shortage of articles in the news where US workers are being canned and have to train their replacements in the process. As always there's never been any shortage of skilled workers, just greedy employers who don't want to pay people decently for their work.
