    I don't think I can, it's got a Radeon 455. I got it for the mobile rendering/encoding. Maximum RAM and CPU. The speakers are really good on this too..

    Unsure if I'll go with the Ryzen, I'm not looking into options for if I were to go with the i7-7700k instead. I was just wondering which Z270 motherboard you guys like, my budget for that is between 200-300$.

    I'm running the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 and I like it.

    Since NVidia wants to keep at least some argument for buying a Titian.

    Every invidia card has an odd version it seems. There's 3gb versions of most of their 6gb models.

    Patriot denied my RMA claim on a SSD because I didn't include the original box. WTF.

    Out of curiosity, what Tech reviewers do you guys normally follow?
    I watch LTT, Jay, Paul, Kyle, and GamersNexus. I've tried watching pcper but I lose interest. I've tried watching Hardware Canucks but his voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me.




    It's bullshit imo. I'm fighting with them to send it back now, they want me to pay $20 for shipping and handling. It was only $6.50 for me to ship it to them.

    Those are the main ones I watch as well. Recently I have started watching Level1Techs...for Wendel.

    I've tried watching Wendel but a lot of his stuff isn't relevant to me.

    I pretty much watch those ones as well and don't watch the others for similar reasons.

    I also watch red team gaming but after a while it gets hard not to hear him say "red came titty come" with how strong his accent is.

    Was SOOO close to putting this in my cart and ordering....

    Fucking Amazon Links

    ... when I saw the ti will be out soon.

    I think I will wait until Zotac comes out with a clocked one and purchase it ASAP. Not a fan of SLI, even though my setup feels "ok" now that the few issues I had with them are gone.

    1080's have been dropping like crazy. The 1080 Zotac Amp was on sale for $476 lately. You can pick up the EVGA AIO for $570 from Amazon right now.

    I'd hang on for a bit. I've seen that the 1600X, 6 core hyper threaded, is supposed to outperform a 7600K by 68% in Cinebench. source It's supposed to be under $300 also.

    Did anyone here go from 2 970 gtx cards to a 1080 gtx? Anyone gaming 4k with a 1080 gtx?

    Debating on whether to buy a 1080 gtx since they dropped or wait for a Zotac 1080 ti. Have both 970 gtx sold already for $175 each, friend wants me to get the new Ghost Recon game, and just got a bonus at work.

    All signs are pointing to "just buy the damn 1080 gtx".....

    Must.... Hold... Out....

    When is the ti hitting anyway?
