Re: Doom

I am addicted to this game. It's so grass-roots. It's what a mindless FPS should be. And it's so well-optimised. I'm hitting a constant 1440p/165fps without a problem. Think it's only half-using my GPU. I don't get how it looks this good yet BF1 takes up so many resources.

Re: ShadowPlay with a RAMdisk

Further update: I have found ShadowPlay / GeForce Experience needs to be manually disabled before starting Battlefield 1, since initially the startup window is 1/4 the screen size (720p in my case). If, after the game starts, you then press the keyboard shortcut to enable it (shift F10 on mine) it w...

Possibly, but I like to believe it was all about the dog tag :)

Video game dream

So I'm sure we've all had these; last night I had a weird one so I thought I would share it. It belongs on the Internet. I was in Afghanistan out of Metal Gear Solid 5 (which I'm still playing now and then), and took out a sniper, and thought, wow, that's an amazing dog tag, how do I get it (I play ...

I was basing my figures on this :) https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-950/specifications Don't believe nVidia's website. Their website lists a GTX 1...

Re: Computer Troubles.... (likely Graphics related)

You need to optimise efficiency for your average max load since that's when your power bill will be hit the hardest. Ideally, under typical gaming load, the PSU should be at around 50% load, where it is typically most efficient. At lower usage levels (i.e. system is idle), the PSU is less efficient ...
