Been listening to the new Symphony X album over the last couple days. It basically sounds like more Symphony X, which is fine I guess, if a bit disappointing. Run with the Devil is a jam, though.

I liked it but its not what I was hoping for. My go to for Symphony X is "V" and all I really want is for them to go back to that sound.

I like the older stuff too (The Divine Wings of Tragedy is an all-time classic), but generally speaking I am more of a modern Symphony X fan. With that being said I still don't know how to feel about Underworld. I am curious what a throw back to that older sound would sound like today, though.

I plan on buying a bunch of things I don't need that are cheaper than they normally are, like every other day on Amazon!

@mb: Well the issue isn't really overall performance (by fluctuating I mean going from 70-120fps and back again). It is more that with the issue I described in the OP it runs at like 20fps, then when I alt-tab to something else it runs at ~100 or whatever like normal, going back to 20 when the game has focus again. It is really odd.

@audiobusting:In games like MMOs (GW2 is one of the games where I am having issues) the frame rate is constantly fluctuating due to number of other players on screen, effects due to those players, etc. So yeah, it helps.

As for @oursin_360, yes I have it in windowed mode, but I also have "Enable G-Sync for windowed and full screen mode" checked, so at the very least it matches. I thought it might a weird dual monitor thing as well, but I talked to a buddy who has a (different) g-sync display and he is not having issues. Also, I don't think the monitor is defective as I am *pretty* sure this is a software issue somewhere that I am just not catching.

So duders, I recently purchased a G-Sync monitor (this one to be exact), and like what I see so far, except for one issue. I know g-sync recently added support for games in windowed mode, but this has been super wonky for me. Games run at like ~20fps when in focus, but run at their "normal" framerate (100+ or whatever I can run it at with my rig) when another program has focus. I have tested it with multiple games so I know it is not a game issue. Also, launching whatever game without g-sync on leads said game running just fine.

I have tried all the "usual" fixes (reboot, driver reinstall, etc) and while they work temporarily, the issues still come back. Anyone else have a g-sync display and run into these issues? Any and all help is appreciated, thanks!

@jack_lafayette: Pretty happy you made this to be honest, because as guild leader I sure as hell was not going to do it. I voted LP because I live life on as many edges as I can (also I like the blue/grey/whatever weapons more).

@rempresent: @taciturnunicorn: Both invites should be sent.

As for guild missions, a few of us do them with assorted other guilds. Our main core would like to do them as a [BOMB] group, but it is an odd situation. Not enough people are on, so we don't schedule them. Because we don't schedule them, people do not show up. It is a lame catch-22, but I would totally be willing to set up a proper schedule to get people to do them if there is enough interest.
