with the acer you should select the 21:9 ultrawide option. costs about the same as the aienware.

i highly recommend a 1440p ultrawide. gaming and movies are better since they use the full width of the screen. productivity is a lot more viable since the width is more conducive to side by side multitasking. only downside is watching videos that aren't native 21:9. you'll have black bars on the sides.

i personally have a 34" lg with a 3800r curve. at this size the curve makes a difference, though i wouldn't recommend anything with a deeper curve. for reference, the number is the radius of the circle the screen would make if it completed a circle, so a smaller number = a smaller circle = a deeper curve.

the alienware is a 1900r curve which i feel is too deep. any kid of off center viewing will probably be annoying, but i've never owned a 1900r monitor so i can't say for sure.

i prefer VA panels to IPS myself. i've owned both and VA panels have noticeably deeper blacks. people say IPS has superior viewing angles, but i see zero difference.

based on my own google-fu i'd be eyeballing this guy. 35"/VA panel/gsync/120 hz/cheaper than your options even!

if that's not to your liking, a bunch of monitors are discounted for prime day right now so shop till you drop!

Big issue with that advice is that a TON of games do NOT support 21:9, even big titles. If you don't pick in the normal 16:9 ratio you will always have issues, sometimes fixable, and sometimes hugely annoying, like if you wanted to play Stellaris on that monitor of yours

Of course your favorite games might just happen to support it. But considering how often I see "does not support 21:9" in steam reviews...

You know what else is free? Path of Exiles
You know what is a better game in every regard?
Yeah, Path of Exiles.

Since they fixed melee even I like it... over Diablo 3.

From where? I want!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/238960/Path_of_Exile/
or
https://www.pathofexile.com/game

Like I can't believe you do not know this We've been talking about the pro and cons of this game for years now. Recently they fixed melee to do AoE damage to everything your swing affects.. and obviously this is a huge change, as before monsters could block your swings for those behind them.

Playing a marauder with shield and axe and liking it... already beyond 60
Uh, I have been under a rock and too BUSY with life. How long had it been free and why? Is it forever for now on?

Path of Exile(s) was always free, since, yes, 2013 But it wasn't always worth it to play it.. nowadays I think it definitely is, if you can get over the fact that you have a 10-15m map reset timer and a pretty steep learning curve to itemization.

Crafting plays a huge part in this game, and your best items are probably going to come from you using the various "crafting item" things on normal (non-rare etc.) stuff. Then rolling it till you like it, then you add what you want via crafting in your hideout. (You find these recipes by exploring the maps)

There are a ton of extra features nowadays. My advice, don't give 2 cent about perfect builds, look at where you start in the confusing skill-tree, then go some main stat, damage and resistance routes. Your only primary goal should be to kill stuff and to boost your elementary resistences to 75% (the limit) this makes the hugest of all differences as later, due to the plot, you actually get a -30% ! to all resistances.. anyhow. Just check it out when you find the time, it's free and won't run away

Logic dictates that everything degrades, but certainly not in that laughable timespan that article tested for (1 year) which included 2 major W10 updates and spectre/mirage... (point is, that is a test you need to plan very carefully)

It would be far more interesting to see this test done with no changes to the bios, OS or driver or even SSD/HDD, but I think nobody kept a system in stasis just for that.

Also seeing Alan Turing on a currency that will be entirely worthless in 3 months makes me sad.

Also, I doubt that article tester used their cards all day every day in AAA titles.

I am betting 1 cookie that nothing will come of this. Because Ubisoft is all about the MVP nowadays. That's why you could put all Assassins Creed games next to each other and be pretty hard pressed to tell them apart or even name any character that isn't the main character in their "stories"

And air quotes around ""stories"" is maybe even too much of a praise already. Ubisoft does not know how to make good stories.

If you already own the game on PC when the Director’s Cut arrives, you’ll receive the update for free with the game’s release on August 27, and it will show up as a new product in your games library listed as The Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut. For the digital Director’s Cut we’re making the choice for new purchasers much clearer with new Standard and Deluxe Edition. Because the Director's Cut is a free upgrade for current owners, anyone who owns the base game will receive the Director’s Cut Standard, and those who own a current license for the Premium, Platinum, or Ultimate versions will be granted the Deluxe Edition.

Straight from the kickstarter mail I received as a backer of this game.

I admit, this..
those who own a current license for the Premium, Platinum, or Ultimate versions will be granted the Deluxe Edition.

Says pretty clearly what is wrong with the games industry.

Why are there 5 different versions.

I'm in the minority for not liking PoE, but the level resetting after 10 minutes away is a deal breaker for me.

It's actually pretty useful when you want to find certain map events, but I can understand that

The real article should be "developers should listen less to marketing and publisher dictated bs"

Because there isn't a single AAA title (or big budget TV series and movie) that isn't bogged down by marketing induced nonsense.

NO THANK YOU, I will be using the vastly superior AMD cards from now that AMD has completely crushed Nvidia's performance.

Is this a joke?

Maybe he likes 65db loud fan noises? Don't judge <3

The joke is on you. Built a new system and got the AMD 5700 card for $300, that is $100 less than the Nvidia's overpriced 2060 Super for basically the exact same performance. Oh and the card is NOT noisy whatsoever.

Sure, 26 reviews all saying the same thing vs your subjective perception..

That Zoom thing is the very definition of spyware... local service that tricks browser security to be pollable from external sources through the browser sandbox with zero auth or security.

Shouldn't be news that running an active unprotected service on a open port isn't a good idea ever... but that they trick Chrome into linking a request that should go through an API into localhost is another class of scummy development...

did anyone notice the complete irony in the drivers ..?

Nivida announces these new drivers are optimal for Division 2 & boost performance.
- then in the actual pdf notes; they clearly state that the Division 2 still crashes on these drivers in DX12 .



OK, ...so now the game optimally crashes ???

you can't even make this shit up, at this point.

Wow, nvidia seems to have issues with that game engine/series in dx12. I seem to remember they had dx12 issues for months last year in Division1.

Meh, Warhammer 2 DX12 is for 1 year now in "beta" and crashes randomly. And we are talking shaders not working, loading taking 5x as long etc.

So there are certainly more than a few games with DX12 issues.
