Modmic looks like a good solution for some people, but I learned with the Zalman clip-on that I don't like the extra wires attached to my headphones. My HD558's have a really long cable and having extra wires run alone it made it tangle really bad.The Blue Snowball iCE does seem like a good option, but my only concern is the sound pickup distance. Do you know if this is going to work at distances of 3 feet without being too quiet?EDITAfter some more research, seems allot...
I'm looking for a mic for Teamspeak and in-game voice communications. I was using a Zalman clip-on for a while, but sound quality was always poor and people complained. I need to buy something of quality that will last me many years. I have a flexible budget, but I'm most comfortable with a $50 budget range. I don't want something that requires some extensive mic stand setup that holds a mic in my face for it to work properly. I also can't deal with clip on mics because...
Sounds like my 1080 could run this game well. Anyone know if this game supports surround monitor setups? There is no demo for me to test it.
Some products are made to fulfill orders and needs for other companies. That doesn't mean the manufacturer of the fan has any interest in selling those exact fans themselves, so they may not list them for sale to consumers even if they make them.
Turn Detailed Grass off then you could push textures up a bit. The grass is a real FPS killer on anything lower than a GTX 1080. I would rather run Ultra car details because you see those allot closer than grass.Under visual effects there is allot of things that look weird in VR. Rain drops and screen dirt will be like you have rain and dirt on your eye balls.Turn off lens and sun flairs because the rift already has that built into it's lenses
Not at all. I know someone who has a 290 in a small apartment bedroom, and it hits 85°F in there when gaming with the window open. Normally its 75°F in there at most. When we installed it into his computer, I was laughing how much heat they put out compared to my GTX 970 that had the same heatsink. We now refer to his rig as the space heater.
FuryX will be over 300W. The GTX 670 will pull about 170W. Power efficiency on AMD has been pretty bad on recent AMD GPUs, so if this is a concern you would want to go with something from Nvidia or a RX 480. Personally, I won't buy any of AMDs power hog GPUs since I'v already experienced how hot your house gets from a single 290.
Codemasters' games are usually CPU bound more than GPU. Dirt Rally uses their older game engine (not the new Formula 1 game engine) so it should run decent if you have a good CPU. I was running the game at high settings on 5760x1080 on a 970 with some adjusted AA settings, so I would start there.
I was just testing out Adrift for the first time and this game is giving me a weird feeling. I'v played several VR games now and never felt weird, but this game makes me feel so disconnected while you bob around and bounce off all the surfaces. Only 15 minutes in, and I'm not so sure I'll be playing this one again.
I just received my replacement Rift after having red tint issues on my first one. This one has no red tint at all and looks good. The dark screens don't have a ruby red glow anymore, and look quite dark now. The first Rift got so bad that on dark screens, the red pixels would make you go cross eyed trying to focus on them. If I had to really nitpick, there is some tiny deviation between brightness of individual pixels. I'm not sure how normal this is, but I assume any...
