  1. Decent specs, only problem I keep seeing is that all the laptops I'm interested in are rocking Nvidia GPUs while my monitor (and the majority of affordable ones) are all Freesync and not G-sync monitors. Also, what's the promo code?
  2. Not really, either is fine.

      Heard you got married, congrats dude.

  4. Doesn't matter as it turns out. Reading through my monitor's manual it only supports a max of 60Hz with HDMI, 120Hz with DVI, and 144Hz with DP. Looks like I'll have to find a laptop with a DP if I want that full 144Hz glory.
  5. I have it already, bought it on Black Friday for $118 intending to use it in a new PC build but haven't yet. I'll check when I get home what my monitor supports. It's an Acer 1080p 144 HZ monitor, can't remember the model name though, it's XF270H or something like that.
  6. Was thinking about buying this to replace my current dilapidated laptop: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834315493 Couple of questions though Could I swap in a 500GB 850 Evo 2.5" SSD into this and take out the HDD? Since it only has an HDMI 2.0 port, does that mean it's impossible to get more than 60 FPS if I hook it up to my 144 Hz monitor?
  7. Hello everyone, I currently have a Lenovo Y510P IdeaPad that I've had for well over four years now. The laptop still works fine but the exterior is getting really beat up and it's difficult to even plug the charging cable in anymore since the power port has kind of been jammed inside the laptop a bit and at an angle. This thing has an i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz, 8GB of RAM, and a Geforce GT 755M graphics card. It originally came with a 1TB HDD but it failed twice (probably from me being clumsy with it carrying it all around and slamming it down in my backpack when I was in college) so I replaced it with a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD about three years ago and it's worked flawlessly ever since. I am looking to replace this laptop with a new one for general usage and light gaming. The only games I really play at the moment are World of Tanks and World of Warships so I don't need a ton of GPU power. I do have a 1080p 144Hz monitor for my desktop (which I'm going to part out and sell soon since I really don't game as much as I thought I would when I built it) and getting over 60 fps in WoT is easily achievable so I don't know if any laptops support more than 60Hz when hooked up to a monitor but it's something I wouldn't mind having. I was looking at laptops with a GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti, which I think would be enough, don't need a HDD, just 250GB or more SSD, at least 8GB of RAM, and an i5 or i7 with at least 4 cores 8 threads. Budget is anywhere from $600-1000, whatever laptop fits the bill for the price is what I'll buy. Don't need a super high end laptop for just playing those two games, any ideas are appreciated. I'm OCD so my monitor is an Acer so I wouldn't mind having an Acer laptop, but I hear good things about MSI and Asus laptops too. Thanks guys. Edit: Sorry for the triple post, kept getting some kind of error when I tried to upload the thread about being disconnected from the server or something, delete this thread and just keep the original one please.
  8. Trying to decide whether to build a PC for my dad with the Ryzen 3 1300X I bought a while ago but haven't used or wait for the APUs to be released and buy one of those. If I stick with the 1300X I of course need to buy a separate GPU.
  9. That moment when you actually have a good game in the Foch 155:

  10. First time I've 3 marked a tank in at least a year (counting the 7 months off I took from this game):
  11. Bonds and camouflages have been given out, global map has updated, pick your tanks now.

  12. Will suck for loot boxes.
  13. So I'm on a week long vacation in California right now and currently staying near downtown LA only about 16 miles SE from where all the out of control fires are.... hmm.

      Those are actually all campfires. People absolutely love their camping in LA.

    I went into the theater today with low expectations after the first few DC movies, knowing Justice League probably wasn't going to be that great but.... wow, it kind of sucked actually. I mean, I actually liked Batman V Superman more when it came out and that movie was mediocre (though the Ultimate Edition was decent). Justice League had a rushed plot, forced comedy, plot holes, no Darkseid other than Steppenwolf saying his name once, and a Superman return that felt so underwhelming (spoiler, but come on, everyone knew he'd be coming back in this movie). Not terrible, but even worse than my expectations going into it.
