I have a 770 4 GB but still feel it runs pretty poorly.  I get a lot of tearing and oddly enough ultra/high settings play better than low/medium.  I simply think it wasn't ready for prime time on the PC.

Smooth as butter on my 970 GTX.  Beautiful game that shows off quite nicely.  Do you have vsync on?

Sigh, I feel like an ingrate for saying this, but it's getting to the point where I feel like I should just avoid buying new games at release and just wait on the enhanced editions that will inevitable come out a year later.

If you had watched the video you would have learned that if you have the original version they will be giving you the enhanced version for free.

But you have to start over since saves won't transfer, so you still would have been better off waiting.

Thanks all for your donations!  Yesterday was great, while I didn't get to experience due to being in charge designing and setting up the route around Sacramento, I heard it was a great time.  My feet are killing me, I believe I walked about 10 miles yesterday placing signs along the 4 mile route, walking the route, and then picking up the signs afterwards.

Team Ethan exceeded our goal of $8,000, and raised $9,610.  Thank you again for your support.  Our Sacramento goal was $193,500, and we exceeded that and had raised over $220,000 and counting.

We truly appreciate your generosity and thanks for once again supporting us!
Thank you,
Ken, Erin, Ethan, & Lila

Glad to see that they are making some progress on treatments!

Yes!  Yesterday was important, the committee recommended to approve the very drug that will help Ethan, who has the most common CF mutation.  It's huge news, prior to this, they had medication that helped the least common.  That's still good to have, but now this drug will help thousands more.

Now we just have to wait till either Ethan becomes 12, or that they lower the eligibility requirements.  And hope that insurance will cover it.

This is not meant to bump, but wanted to thank everyone who had donated.  Today we have reached our goal of $8,000 with the help of OO, GT, friends and families.  This was our biggest year of our 6 years of fundraising.  Team Ethan has now raised over $33,000 in that time period.  That's simply amazing.

Thanks again for all of your support.

We are currently #1 in Sacramento, and one of the perks is having a MVP seating area (shade, drinks served to our team members) and the 2nd place team is quickly gaining on us.  There's 3 days left and we're hoping we can hang onto our lead.  So even though we reach our goal, it doesn't mean we stop fundraising!  So if you would like to donate, and help us secure 1st place, you can do so by clicking here

Looks like my company will match my donation, but from the note I got it may not reach the foundation until the end of the month so it may not get counted.  I guess they lump all donations together or something like that.

Best of luck!

awesome Thank you!  While this is for the walk, we still fundraise all year.  I tend to stop in May.  You can only ask so much smile  I spam Facebook way more.

My only bump.

Our walk is 4 days away and we are so close to our team goal.  Last year we were around $300 short from our $8,000 goal, and it was my hope that with the addition of new team members that we would surpass it this year.  Right now we are $875 away from hitting our goal.

Today is a very important day for the CF community.  Today is the day that the FDA advisory committee will meet to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the ivacaftor/lumacaftor combination drug (Orkambi) and provide a recommendation to the FDA for or against approval.  This is the miracle drug that I've been talking about the last 5 years.  This is the drug that will directly help Ethan, it's the drug that corrects the damaged cell.  It's the first drug that isn't fixing the symptom, but the cell itself.  The CF community feels that we are close to a cure, and this drug is the first step.  Ethan is 5, so if today's advisement goes through, he won't be able to take it until 12, but it's a start and it's going to help thousands.  This drug is for the people who have most common mutation of CF.  So it's huge news.

This is why I fundraise, this is why I ask for your help each year, because the foundation doesn't receive government funding and relies on fundraising and investing to make things happen.  Can you help?

Quote from: TiLT on May 11, 2015, 04:34:56 PM

They're celebrating one million preorders for this game right now, and that just makes me sad. This game could be the best game ever, and CD PROJEKT RED has a well-deserved good reputation, but people are still handing over money for a product they have no idea whether or not will be awesome, great, good, mediocre, or plain bad.

A million preorders is cause for the industry to bow its head in shame and sorrow. This is what our hobby has degenerated into, and it's not looking like it's going to become better any time soon.

Preorders will be fine in two days, after the reviews have been allowed to sink in. At that point the preorder is justified. Right now though, this is a dark day for gaming, and that it's being celebrated makes it even darker.

To those of you who preorder games blindly: Shame on you!

1: I didn't preorder but I do have it waiting to be download, due to the nvida promotion...

2: Really?  Blindly preordering?  It's the 3rd game of the series, people know what to expect from CD Projekt Red.  It's not like it's some new company

3: When has preordering ever been considered bad?

4: We should be more upset about DLC, that has ruined the industry.

So I grabbed it.  Wow it's fast.  Before upgrading I did a benchmark test using 3dmark's firefight.  My old GPU was a XFX R9 270x.  My score was in the 5000's.

My new card, same test, 25k!

Screaming!

I do get some hitching in Arma 3.  I had the similar effect in COD Advance Warfare 2 when I had my R9 270.  I'm not sure what's causing that.
57  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Video Card (should I bite the bullet?) on: May 06, 2015, 09:32:18 PM
So Nvidia just announced that if you buy certain nvidia cards you can get witcher 3 and the new batman game for free.

I have a XFX r9 270 2 GB and looking at a evga overclocked GFX 970.  It has 4 GB of ram, and will work with my powersupply

The question is, is it worth it? 

A little history...

I previously had the 6970 from XFX, after about 2 years, it bit the dust.  I had a lifetime warranty and got it replaced for free with the card I have now.  I only had that for 6 months.  It handles most games that I throw, but I there are some games where I have to turn things down.  I was thinking this would be a good time to upgrade, get two free games, and sell my current card to make the deal even sweeter.

my current specs is a i7 (i forget which one, but it's not slow)
8 GB of ram (again not sure on type, but it's not slow)
250 GB SSD
XFX r9 270

What do you think?  Worth the time, or should I wait?

We just went over $5,000.  Our goal is $8,000.  We were very close last year to reach $8,000.  Hoping to hit it this year.  The cool thing, right now we are #1 in money raised in Sacramento, and #1 with the most registered walkers.  Not that it's a competition, but I like seeing our name at the top smile

Did you know that Octopus Overlords and GamingTrend have helped raised over $25,000 in the last 6 years to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.  OO\GG continues to make an impact to the CF community, and my family greatly appreciates all of your support, whether it's financially, emotionally, and both.

This year our fundraising event have grown which gave us the opportunity to host our event at Raley Field, home of the Sacramento River Cats, an AAA affiliate of the 2014 World Series Champ, the San Francisco Giants (sorry I had to get that in there for Lorini) It will take place on May 16th.

As you know, Ethan has Cystic Fibrosis, overall, he's healthy, but over the last few years he has developed some form of liver disease.  Right now it's manageable through medications.  This is his first year of school (preschool) and because he's exposed to more kids, he gets sick often, just like other kids.  The part where it's different from most kids, is that his colds hit him harder, and it turns his 2 times a day treatments into 4, causing him to miss school.  We calculated that he has missed over a month of school, and he only goes 3 times a week.  He currently has a cold and a double ear infection that has kept him out of school for over 10 days.  Today is his first day back even though he's not fully well.  It's a preview to whats to come next year when  he starts kindergarten.  It's things that most parents don't have to think or worry about.  

So that's where we are at this year, other than getting sick with colds or managing his liver disease, he's doing well, no major complications in relation to cystic fibrosis.  But that can change anytime.

That is why I fundraise.  Fundraising is extremely important to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the money that we raise go towards research towards a cure, new medications and new therapies.  Recently, many of the drugs that I've been talking about the last few years that were in trial are being released this year.  The biggest drug Kalydeco with the combination of  VX-661 will address Ethan's specific gene mutation, and attack the cause, not the symptom.  This has been huge for the CF community.  This drug actually corrects the cells and it has shown tremendous results.  People having a hard time breathing and need oxygen masks, no longer needs it after a few weeks of taking it.  Lung functionality has improved greatly because of it.  

But it's not a cure, and that's our ultimate goal.

I tried to keep this short, and I have already failed.  So I'll end here

Will you continue help support my son and 70,000 others worldwide?  If you like to donate, you can visit my page here

Also if you want to know more about CF and how it relates to us you can check out this year's video.  It's a little dry.  I was trying to go for a modern family style, but it didn't work.

I miss Smashburger so much. I loved that place. My favorite burger place, fast food or not.

@Eco, yeah I find Naedneks opinion strange. When he first said that about the quality, I was wondering if they have some sort of fancy high end Carl's Jr where he lives.

When you compare Carl's Jr meat (heh heh) to other fast food, (McDonalds, Wendys, Jack In the Box) then yes, as I said, it's higher quality then those 3 resturaunts.  I'm not comparing them to In and Out, 5 guys or similar chains, but out of all the fast food, they are the closest to them in terms of quality. 
72  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 14, 2015, 04:27:11 PM
Carl's Jr\Hardees is generally a little more than the standard fast food.  Their quality of products usually better as well.  The problem that faces all restaurants is serving it fresh.

CJ is all about being messy.  I mean their slogan in the 2000's was  "If its not all over the place it doesn't belong in your face"

Get the House Dressing when you try the Criscuts.  Their house dressing is awesome.  Don't let them give you their buttermilk ranch, that's stuff is nasty.  Also the house dressing is best when it's cold.  I've noticed most CJ's now keep them at room temp.  Back when I worked there many years ago, we always kept them refrigerated.

Worth a try as long as you're expecting more like McDonald's tier fast food and not stuff like Five Guys or In-N-Out which is a step up.

I recommend you get a Western Bacon Cheeseburger with Crisscut Fries, and ask for a side of ranch dressing to dip your Crisscut Fries in.  Schedule a coronary for later in the day.

Umm, it's nowhere close to being McDonalds quality (or lack of)  I'd rank In & Out Burger just barely over Carls Jr and Five Guys.  CJ's Burgers are pretty damn good for fast food, beats, Wendy's, Jack in the Box, Burger King (did you know BK and CJ uses they same Charbroiler, but CJ's taste tons better, want to know the secret?  Produce on the bottom)

Famous Star and Superstar you can't go wrong with.  If you like your meat dripping in BBQ sauce (I don't) then Westerns are a good choice)  They used to make a great Bacon Swiss Chicken sandwich, but they shrunk it and it's overpriced.
