    R9 270x dead??

    As I said - very unlikely, though Corsiars budget PSUs arn't the best ones out there. Their highend offerings are a different topic (very good usually). Do the cross testing thing first.

    R9 270x dead??

    Fucked up images likes yours arn't usually related to driver problems. Driver problems usually result in instable applications/system and faulty images in a certain application(s), but NOT in fucked up images everywhere. The later is a typical indication for faulty hardware. What can be misleading is a instable PSU that triggers crashes and reboots when put under a certain load even during driver installation, when the GPU switches from 2D clocks to 3D clocks (higher load). But that happens relative seldom and probably not the case here. Mangled images arn't usually part of the symptoms there.

    I need a new router

    I'm not that well versed when it comes to routers, but you might want to take a look at this: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/i-found-this-router-on-amazon-good-price.240952/

    Either try a different monitor or plug your GPU into a different PC.

    Looks like a hardware failure.

    Need new headset - halp?

    Today I got the GSP 303 from amazon and it will go back :-( It fits on my head (barely) have to set it to max size and it's still a close fit- my helmet size is 60 (certainly on the bigger side but far from enormous). But the ear cushions are just too small for my liking, yes they fit around my ears but constrict them from the sides - no I'm not related to Dumbo. Seems to me they designed that thing for boys and women and forgot about adault males bigger than 1.80m (>6ft).

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    As I said - a significant performance boost. Thx for giving us feedback - that helps other users with similar "problems". ... Swap to Ryzen+ or CoffeeLake down the line and you 'll get an other one. My 3770K @ 5GHz together with a GTX970 (~GTX1060) running on a 5 year old Win7 installation achieves ~16.5K points at ultra (1080p).

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    ~20% faster on avg as long as you buy the 4GB version

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    The 1050Ti should be considerably faster than the 270X. If the WoT Encore benchmark is usefull, you should have no problem at 1080p with WoT 1.0. The FX8320 is the bigger question in my book.

    Graphics card upgrade

    NV and to a lesser degree AMD don't directly profit from the high prices, AIBs and resellers are the ones that are making the huge profits there. NV and AMD "profit" from a higher number of sales/better utilization of their production facilities. There are potentially two potential problems for AMD and NV (and AIBs) resulting from the possible collaps of the gpu-mining market. Nr1 is if they increase production capabilities now, that arn't needed later (if demand drops from miners) and Nr2 the huge amount of cards that would flood the market if gpu-mining collapses (AMD already had that to a degree around 2014/15).

    Graphics card upgrade

    In 2017 EVGA got unlucky with a supplier which resulted in a batch of 10xx cards that was prone to failure. As far as I'm aware that is sorted out by now. Furthermore their customer support is really good and you are dealing with them directly. I don't know anything about the architecture of the upcoming 20xx cards (how could I ???). I would expect a typcial generational leap in performance around 25% (970 ~ 1060; 1080Ti ~ 2080 ...). As for prices? Who can say with the current crazy market and rumors that NV is working on blocking consumer cards from mining.

    Graphics card upgrade

    I share lordawesomes sentiment about buying a highend card now. In addition SLI/CF is dead - plain and simple. Nowdays buying a card with the thought of adding a similar card down the line is "stupid". Are there even DX12 titles that support multi GPU properly??? All that aside I have two mayor gripes with these Inno cards. Nr 1 - these coolers arn't that good when it comes to thermal/noise performance, even EVGA's dual fan design is better, let alone Asus Strix or MSI Gaming. The 2nd thing is - how are they handling warrenty complaints/requests ...? A quick check reveals you have to go through the seller of the card (at least in europe). With all that in mind and the current pricing nonsense going on I 'd rather buy directly from EVGA europe. And when it comes to OC/frequency with the 10xx series cards the reference PCB is more than good enough for air/water. The deciding factor is luck of the draw (silicon lottery) and the ability of the cooler to avoid throttling.

    DPI & Sensitivity

    Two different sensitivity settings in the same game? I mostly worked with high zoom out setting in arcade for overview (mod) - using it with low sensitivity to aim in the general direction of my target - and switching with SHIFT (???) to my favored sniper view setting for taking the shot. That way I dont have to change much and I spend less time traveling around my mousepad. The whole aiming and zoom (in/out) options in the stock client for most of the time I played WoT was rather limited and was probably one big contributing factors for the bad gameplay (situational awareness) of the unwashed masses. Edit: Forgot something - I always used the serverside crosshair (until WG fucked it up) and later via mods aiming fullly in most of the time. That had several different reasons, but one of the results was that I never played WoT as a FPS shooter.
  16. PW for elitist channel can be obtained here
  17. The last week I started to grind freeXP for the Missouri via Ops Divisions t7. Beside very "random" team mates, the biggest problem is the horrible division interface/UI when it comes to ops especially forming one (why don't they just use the old WoT company battle UI???). Finding like-minded people is a pain in the arse. Assuming I'm not the only one with this problem, why not just join the "wotlabs" ingame channel to meet up? I'm sailing under the nick "dodge_the_bullet" my old 2nd account from WoT.

    Special position for members who passed away

    I don't know what Overlord does nowdays, last I ve heard he was on Cyprus. As for Listy, ~2 years back he still had contact information for Overlord ... . Also you can try to contact https://de.wot-life.com/eu/player/Sarah_Plume-500580446 - former EU forum moderator from way back (2011). She is german and understands english, tell her Folterknecht send you. Until 1-2 years back she had 1 or two contacts in Minsk.

    Special position for members who passed away

    If you piss post in the official EU forum or not ... Best bet would be in the RU-forum or try to find someone in the koreanrandom forum who has contacts directly in Minsc. Maybe @seriych knows whom to contact in the koreanrandom forum?! P.S.: Body Count is back? How come?

    T-34/85 Dragon 1/35

    This one is the best model you posted here so far - by a large margin I might add. The dirt on the tracks/wheels and on the sides looks very realistic, same as the rust on the cast turret.

    Looking To Upgrade From Old Laptop

    There are no decent (mobile) GPUs on the AMD side of things, because of their terrible power/performance ratio. That just doesn't fly in mobil space.

    Need new headset - halp?

    I think the mic on the 350 is the same as the one on the 30x headsets. And from the 30x review on techpowerup and their audio sample there was no "muffling" I can remember. That leaves the whole USB soundcard integrated into the headset the as the likely culprit in my book.
