Can someone actually explain the Titan to me? I don't get it.

According to videocardbenchmark, the TitanX has a lower G3D Mark score than the 980ti, but is over 3x the cost.

the titan series of cards are geared more for the content creators, the graphic artist, or the power needed for graphical rendering. It is really not marketed nor designed as the ultimate gaming/gamer card, never has been.

Right here right now it is being marketed as the Ultimate with no boundaries attached.

Yes this isn't a bargain card, it's a BMW... my Corolla can hit the speed limit, keep me cool and do well at the pump. But some just want more even if it doesn't make price/performance sense, news at 11.

I think it's more like taking a 455 hp, $60,000 Corvette, fiddling with the computer, giving it 546 hp, then charging $120,000.

Amen to that. My GTX970s will foot the bill for now. Once a killer app arrives, I guess I'll send the orcs over to NVidia, and we will come to an arrangement to 'liberate' a few units for the benefit of the 'good' folks of Barad-Dur.

It would be a tad less embarrassing if the orcs would use these cards for real games. But their favorites seem to be The Sims 4, and BeJeweled. So sad.

The only thing I dont like is it looks like the new and last expansion content are sub/pay only, which means you won't get much end game access under the free plan.

Swotr is not an ideal free to play game. Rift does it much better. Guild wars 2 also ponied up alot of content to do under its free to play account which is everything before the new expansion. Ie it is a ton of stuff.

I'll second the GW2 recommendation (I haven't played SWTOR). GW2 gives you a TON of content once you buy the original game, with no subscription, and the leveling process is really a lot of fun.

Nevermind this, I'm just now getting into Fallout 4. Really impressed, even though they removed a lot of the RP from the G. The atmosphere and crafting are terrific, and even the combat feels good.

I'd buy Battlefront just for the opportunity to shoot Jar-Jar. He really was that annoying.

Oh awesome, it's been a decade or more since I gave this a whirl. Great game.

I never played it. Somehow this ended up on the "I will get to that later" list....and than I never got back to it. Same thing with Sands of Time. These two giveaways are perfect.

Same here. I just picked this up for free and got Sands of Time last month as well. Never played either of them when they were released, but always meant to. Really good.

I'll be buying this. Although it may have to wait until I finish Fallout 4, Witcher 3 AND Enderal (the Skyrim TC). And maybe The Talos Principle. So many good games.

That 7/11 site gave me cancer

Enjoy the 'snapchat' generation.

People say that as if we're not the generation that gave us Angelfire/Geocities sites, The Hampster Dance, Hello My Future Girlfriend, and Tom Green movies.

ALL OF WHICH WERE AWESOME!!!

Admit it, Beamer, you just secretly yearn to be a Millenial.

*takes away all of Creston's Space Sims*

BAD CRESTON! TIME OUT IN THE CORNER UNTIL RED DEAD REDEMPTION COMES OUT ON PC!

That Red Dead Redemption never came out on PC is a crime. If RDR2 doesn't include PC, I'm giving the orcs beans for dinner then sending them over to Rockstar.

They can deal with the consequences.

I don't usually buy anything in the Steam sale, but this time around I spent $80! Fallout 4 and Vampire both 50% off, and Talos for 75% off. Not bad at all.

Oh, and Far Cry Primal for my daughter - we had a deal she would get it as a gift if she did well in her exams. It was only 35% off but I guess some money saved.

Honestly, as a recovering MMO player, I am so tempted by this. Not sure I would participate in any community events, but the opportunity to explore all of Tamriel is quite compelling. I have played everything from Daggerfall on, so to see it all reimagined is very interesting.

Fortunately, I do have the orcs and my responsibilities at Barad-Dur to avoid that kind of time sink. And if that fails, there's chess with Shelob, or the torture dungeon, and all those hobbits.

I'm honestly not sure what there's left to enhance. The game is pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned.

I suspect it's just a patched version with all of the DLC.


Even more nudity? I'd be totally fine with that.

Just kidding. I'm still playing W3, but good grief is it ever good. Might even be the best RPG ever made. It's certainly up there.

It can be fun to get new toys, but once the old toys hit a certain age, it's more fun to keep them going,

Amen to that. I love fixing up old stuff. A bunch of the furniture at my place came out of the recycling or from thrift stores, and it's all really good vintage items. Once you know the basics of how to work with wood, renovating that stuff gets really fun.

I'm not sure if its just the metal arm/brace itself but there are some Ebay sellers with arms and stuff if you decide to fix it. When mine gets to that point I will probably pick up a used chair to gut for parts, I see them around here for $200-300. Anyways good luck and let us know how it goes.

I just never think of times like this as the perfect role for eBay.
I just ordered a hardened replacement for the bolt that broke.

I should have bought the replacement for the whole height wheel mechanism, because now I remember that my old one was slipping. I guess I can still consider getting that down the road.

New Aeron chair is $939 on Amazon.
The current crop of "ergonomic" racing gaming chairs are $200-$500.
My eBay bolt was $9.99.

Thanks Verno!

Congrats! I also use an Aeron at work - sitting in it now in fact.

Although mine has hobbit skulls as arm rests, and a cackling imp familar perched on the back.

Already up to $450,000 which is halfway to their goal. And they only opened the Kickstarter yesterday.

Looks nailed on to be funded.

Wow! I have their previous release (Nehrim), which was a TC for Oblivion. I had no idea the Skyrim TC was almost done.

Thanks nin for keeping up with it, and Blue for posting the news.

Agreed. They may also want to re-test you for Lyme. At least one person I know who has had the disease, initially tested negative for it. A re-test was positive.
