$699 for the "Founders Edition" which is basically a reference card sold by Nvidia.
$599 MSRP for the card sold by suppliers like EVGA and Gigabyte.

No difference in terms of performance. Just overall PCB layout of the two cards. Release date May 27th

Such us the ebb and flow of pc gaming.

Also im glad, let's me buy a cheap 980ti to sli as a holdover until the new Titan or 1080Ti come out. Or I even might wait for Volta. Depends on when I feel like making the upgrade to 4k.

I thought pascal was coming out later this year? Why not just wait for that.

And then Volta comes out in 2017.... It's like waiting for the LCI model to come out. Sigh.

The first Pascal cards launch at the end of the month with 3rd party benchmarks coming on May 17.

I doubt that 980Ti-1080 is going to be as big of a jump as people say it is outside of VR. I don't want VR and I have no issues pushing AAA games at ultra 1440p and 70fps. I'll only find it necessary to really upgrade when cards come out that can push Ultra 4k at 60-80fps. At that point I'll buy a 4k monitor like i keep wanting to. I also don't really see the point in upgrading every single card generation.

Also the 1080Ti will likely use a new pcb design and HBM2 memory since it will be based on the Pascal Titan. So it will be another big improvement over the 1080. Similar to how the 980Ti was a big leap over the 980. But at that point I may just wait for Volta. 980Ti will be no slouch for a few years unless dx12 performance is really that bad.


Anyway as far as games go I'm playing Batman: Arkam Asylum in between rounds of Rocket League. I've never played the Arkam games and im really enjoying the first one right now.

I really really like Overwatch. I have not tried Battleborn but I was a fan of the Borderlands games.

Anyone played both? Am I buying the right one going Overwatch?

I started gaming back in the Quake days but have been on a major hiatus since 2005. Just a bit of Forza in between.

Just built a budget gaming rig last week and pre-ordered DOOM a few minutes ago. So f'n psyched! Crossing my fingers for decent frame rate at 1080!

Intel i3-6100
XFX R9 270x

you can prolly squeeze more FPS if you liquid cool your GPU and OC but these Radeon cards run real hot.

Yeah I didn't even bother with The Division, also a few hours into Dark Souls 3, with work and travel being crazy I haven't had nearly as much time to play it as I'd like.

Do you need to play the other games to know what's going on or can you just jump right in?

Never cared to try playing Uncharted, but after The Last of Us I became a fan of Naughty Dog.

you need a pelican case for the system to travel with. Or just install games on your work computer like I may or may not do (for times on the road).

Never played the other series. My 1st uncharted. I'm on the same boat. Last of us is one of my all time fav games.

Im not sure about Doom at this time, have played all former games and expecting not real improvements aside of the graphics. Whats bothering me much more is the fact that they brought Uncharted 4 only for the damn consoles and I wont buy one only to play this.

Just beat Gravity Rush Remastered. They got rid of all the waggle controls of the Vita original, making for a more consistent experience. Can't wait for the sequel.

Now to just sit here and roll my thumbs until Odin Sphere Leifthrasir comes out next month.

The Division just installed the new patch 1.2, any known better items, more cheaters banned? How about the new gearsets?
Btw. ORIGIN offers actually 30% off for all inshop sales via coupon code, used it for the season pass of SW Battlegrounds

I might start playing division again. I never got into it.

Anyone playing Salt & Sanctuary? I love 2d Metroid-vania style games and this ramps up the difficulty considerably. Lots of fun, but don't try to play with keyboard/mouse. Gamepad is a must.
