  1. Decided to run the user benchmark as well and absolutely creamed it http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/4375803
  2. There are two commonly used types of M.2 drives. There's the B&M keyed M.2 SATA drives which use AHCI, these are still running on SATA, just through the M.2 connector and therefore are limited to 6Gb/s Then there are the M keyed M.2 drives that use NVME. These are the pure PCI-E drives that use the 32Gb/s interface. Rule of thumb: If it has two notches on the connector, it's an AHCI M.2 drive, if it was only one notch it's a NVME M.2 drive. If you plug an M.2 drive into your motherboard and it disables some SATA connectors on your motherboard it means you are running a AHCI M.2. If you were running a NVME M.2 you would still have all your SATA connectors enabled, but your system would lose 4 PCI-E lanes instead. Then there's SATA Express....don't even get me started on that shitshow
  3. His screenshot is from a 775 desktop, not a laptop. Core 2 Duos don't have integrated graphics and neither does his motherboard. He has a dedicated GPU, just not a powerful one. Franko, if you run "dxdiag" what device is listed under the "Display" tab?
  4. Wait, is that the reason why I always lose fights in the field in PUBG?
  5. Will be able to attend on the new date
  6. Will not be able to attend this event :(. Good luck to the rest of you.
  7. Pineapple goes on pizza. Anyone who disagrees can fight me IRL!
  8. Ted, did the FSA shark proof their BMP1s before deploying them to Sharqi?
  9. BMP gunner on Taraba and Tampa pls.
  10. I second this. We'll fill the convoy up with cake.
  11. Three so far, more to come
  12. Evergreen has a point, could this be affecting all non-VG admins?
  13. I would personally stay clear of Saitek for the time being. Their old sticks were excellent, but then Mad Katz bought the brand and the build quality plummeted. Logitech did purchase the brand recently, but I assume they are still selling the old Mad Katz sticks with terrible build quality right now. I had an X-55 that lasted me around 2 months before switches and buttons stopped working. Bought myself a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS and never looked back. That shit ain't cheap though.
  14. Nice work ted, looking forward to it.
  15. l3RY4N, I can take you under my wing while you are getting the hang of it. It's a lot easier to learn the ropes if you have someone with you :). I highly recommend getting it on PC. I won't be able to back you up on consoles
  16. God damnit, now I need to install Elite again. Getting the itch to space truck. If anyone wants to play, hit me up on TS
  17. Mi-8 pilot on Iron Ridge. Gunner Tank 1 on beirut.
  18. Keed pls.
  19. I'll join Keed's leftover squad on Lashkar. I can also take the second Blackhawk on Ramiel if nobody else wants it.
  20. The easiest way to check it is to go to http://tournament.realitymod.com/ and check what time it is for you when the PRT clock strikes 21:00. The PRT clock does not take into account daylight saving time. If my map reading skills are correct, Kavalenko is in GMT+10,5 since South Australia is running DST right now, so 7:30 Saturday morning is event time for him. For those of us in the northern hemisphere it's simple math since it's winter here and no DST, so just add your UTC respective timezone to 21:00.
  21. I'll probably join some random squad on Lashkar and Ramiel. Might go dedicated greasemonkey for the vehicle squad on Ramiel though.
  22. Looks like the spots I was looking at are already filled. Put me down as panther pilot on Barracuda then and littlebird pilot on Khami.
  23. Tigre pilot on Barracuda, Blackhawk pilot on Ramiel.
  24. NVIDIA, there is no question about it. The 1070 and 1080 just annihilate anything AMD has put on the market. I would not recommend going for a multi-card configuration since it tends to increase frame time and latency which can be really annoying and make the high framerates you gain redundant. Intel absolutely destroys AMD as well when it comes to CPU performance. A quad core intel is outperforming a octa core AMD. For a typical gaming PC and some video/CAD work the i7 6700K should be fine instead of opting for the more expensive, more cores of 2011v3. Really depends on how much horsepower you are willing to pay for. Air cooling. The Noctua NH-D15 is quieter and performs just as well as any AIO cooler (pump noise anyone?). Custom watercooling only if you are willing to spend an ungodly time on maintenance. Been there done that, would not recommend for most people. Motherboard sockets are just about CPU compatability. 1151 is for current generation consumer CPUs and 2011v3 is for enthusiast/workstation grade CPUs (more expensive, more cores). Just make sure you get a Z170 chipset, and not H or B chipset if you want full features and overclocking. Unless you are going for a 2011v3 build, 2x16GB will perform just as well since you are limited to dual channel, and it gives you the ability to go for 64GB in the future if you deem such overkill necessary. The key to selecting RAM is balancing timings vs frequency. 2400MHz RAM on CL14-15 is better than 3000MHz on CL17-18. As for power supplies, make sure you get a good brand. Corsair AX/HX series are very good, also EVGA SuperNOVA P2. Stay away from Corsair's RM/CS series, they are cheap garbage. 600-700W is plenty power for a single card. 80+ Platinum is recommended by me.
  25. You can use any of my footage as long as you credit me (and ted) for it.
