    I got my my local isp to install a fiber connection in my house. They installed it with a prolink prs1841 modem. Thing is it does not have a sc-cs connection - does that necessarily not make it fiber? I called them and they told me that it is a fiber box in the basement of the building and...

    Hello guys, I just sold my 1080 GTX because I play CS:GO 99,99% of time and I really don't need that high performance card. I was wondering what would be a good option for CS:GO.

    Been looking for a solid Used GPU and the GTX 970s are a bit over my $200 budget, However I have come across the GTX 690 and the average price seems to be about $175. Will this card last me two years and still manage to keep up with AAA games @1080?

    i5 8400+GTX 780 Ti Bottleneck?

    I'll be getting the new i5 8400 pretty soon and I'd like to know if I will still be able to use my GTX 780 Ti (Asus DCII OC) since it is equally as good as a 1060 it wouldn't be quite worth the upgrade just yet.
