Damn it!

Oh well, at least I have another season of Fargo and The Americans to look forward to.

Hey, having overpowered hardware to run inefficiently coded games is half the fun. :D

GTA V will likely be a blast on that front. ;)

G.Skill 16GB at 2400 MHz.

I might get a higher speed 32GB kit in a couple of years when prices will likely be much more reasonable with latencies quite low. Even then such an upgrade would...

Perhaps he was busy doing another awful season of the "Kroll Show."

I think Ruxin and his wisecracks is a great aspect of the show, but character hiatus' like this actually work in my view. It...

One selling point for future GPU tech like Nvidia's Pascal architecture is unified memory, which just might be the start of putting an end to GPU-specific memory requirements/recommendations. That...

So The Master cannot be killed through any of the traditional means. Perhaps force-feeding him garbage like Taco Bell will do the trick, or have him watch just one episode of American "Reality" TV.

That was indeed excellent. Even Rafi made me laugh a little.

Excellent build, N8! I sure hope your initial Asus board didn't go up in smoke. It seems that even little ol' ASRock has better quality control these days.

It's interesting to see how hot the...

I'll be damned. The gunshot will indeed only make him soft for a few days, maybe even just a couple in his case. He'll be up to run a half-marathon in a week. It was good to see some restraint in...

I really hope that this one was done well. I love good stealth-oriented gameplay, so this has the potential to really draw me in.

One cool aspect is that some cues from Jerry Goldsmith's...

Yes, besting the competition in frames per second at particular price points takes the front seat even though it does not fully explain the experience when actually playing games.

Yes, you do not watch this show for content that is grounded in a great deal of reality. It is entertainment in a similar vein as CSI: Miami. I watch very little network television, but I do catch...

SLI used to be a lot worse. Aside from relatively little support and optimization, there were sometimes visual artifacts as well.

As an example with regard to visual anomalies, I recall running...

No, but we did see him cough up lots of blood after getting shot point-blank in a vital area of the body. I doubt that Robles and his merry band of drug traffickers would be quick to take him to the...

That had me at some unease as well. This show does dark, ominous environments quite effectively, which I guess bodes well for the presumably darker seasons to follow.

It certainly looked a little better and more imposing to me than that beyond ridiculous "O" face they gave him when infecting Eichorst.
