    Now Nico gets to act like he actually won the race, and it wasn't handed to him. What a load of shite.

    @shindig: Seems to be more much more debauched and ostentatious in a vaguely sinister high society kind of way than your average frat, to me at least.

    Fraternities are really odd and I think if Americans had a lower legal drinking age college kids wouldn't feel the need to join a dumb club centred upon alcohol (if I've misunderstood the role of drin...

    @bluefalcon: Unless I'm totally mistaken, Hairworks isn't a Physx feature, so having a dedicated Physx card isn't doing anything for you in that regard. The 980 is doing the heavy lifting there.

    @horseman6: Nope. The difference in fps with an i7 vs an i5 is typically nowhere near 15%. It's more like a tenth of that, at best.Here's a page with benchmarks for demonstration:http://www.anandtech....

    @dezztroy: Not really. USB 3.1 can transfer at up to (up to being an important qualification here) 2x as fast as 3.0, which is nice, but unless you're finding 3.0 too slow for your needs it's hardly a...

  • pcorb posted a message in the forum topic PC upgrade or rebuild advice. on the PC board

    If you really have money to burn, you might want to pick up a bigger SSD along with the 970. I'd recommend a 250GB or even 500GB Samsung 850 EVO. They really don't break the bank like the used to.
