So what do you guys think about this LED TV and note right now i am using a 26 inch LCD 720p TV for my monitor which is decent but after having this TV since like 2006/2007 and noticing the burn marks in the corner happening i need to switch.

If steam could give away Dying Light for free, that'd be great. Thank you in advance.

I feel like I'm reading comments from the same 5 people every day on GD, and then I look at the comment section from the Ryzen giveaway and it's 69 (giggity) fcking pages of comments!

Don't know how relevant this is to anyone, but the BBC Radio 2 here in UK started having comical skits in a Trump accent and it's hilarious xD

Should I step up to a GTX 1080Ti FE from a EVGA 1080 FTW2? It would only be about $50 to step up with shipping both ways.

How many of you guys are in favour of vulkan that the upcoming king of the hill api will be vulkan I know DX have a huge marketing but let's not forget that vulkan is better than DX 12 in many ways

Anyone got 5 grand burning a hole in their pocket for an 8K monitor? :)

Here's a thing that bugs me: The Red Cross decided that they don't want to associate themselves with violent video games so the subsequent DOOM releases after the originals (say, the DOOM BFG one) no longer had the red plus icon on the medpacks. It's really quite stupid IMO.

Looks like I'm getting some GTX 1080Ti hardware delivered to the office on Monday. Will finally get to complete the office PC build a bit further. Still not sure if we'll get both delivered or just one. The PSU for the broken Xeon machine will also arrive, so I'll have some work to do...

If this helps anyone building a PC for work - get a CPU that has high clocks rather than two cheaper Xeons. I've built a new PC at work (same as the one I have at home) for myself as the old 20-core started pissing me off and the instant I booted up the software - everything was so much smoother and faster! For the best performance all-round I can only recommend extreme chips (5960X and 6950X), the Xeons, although they have more cores and could deliver way more power when rendering 3D (video won't benefit THAT much more over the i7s) - the slow clocks are just a pain to work with in all the other software (Photoshop, 3D packages, game engines, audio, etc). Learn from our mistakes :)

why you only overclocked gtx 1080ti sli by 10% only?

When I pre-ordered the 1080Ti cards I got no game with them. And it sucked, because after the launch the buyers would get a choice of For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands. Good guy Nvidia came through and I got my choice a couple of days ago :D Can you guess which one I picked? :)

Hey, Felix! Figured I'd write you on this one because it's a tricky one. I don't think setting a specific % for overclocking here on GD makes any sense whatsoever anymore on Pascal chips. The reason why I say that is because since Pascal chips now feature GPU Boost 3.0 they automatically overclock if the criteria is met (temps, etc). For example, my GTX 1080Ti cards are rated to boost to 1582MHz, but even without me doing any manual tweaking they just boost to 1800+ because the temps are below the limit. I only need to nudge my chips +160MHz and they stay above 2GHz. Same with my 1080s. Would it be a huge bollock to rework the system to account for clocks instead of an arbitrary % value?

Going through the usual benchmark runs for GD (finally) to get the new hardware approved. Here's what the system is like at the moment.

Got a pair of 1080Ti for the work PC.

Hi, boss! How are ya doin'? I'm a bit confused here - I've picked up a pair of 1080Ti cards for my rig and when I add them to GD into my rig - I can't choose an overclock. Is it something that usually appears after the database is sufficient? Thanks!

If I weren't too fussed about keeping above 100fps then 5K on these new cards is completely manageable in Witcher 3 at around 70fps. Though 4K stays above 100, usually 110. Funny too, because in many cases I don't get much more than that at 1080p or 1440p xD
