Bought two MSI 1070 Aeros for $569 + tax a few days ago from MexEx. That's not so bad but the performance is only marginally faster than GTX 980 you can get for $350 on the used market.

Watching him build a rig and play games with his son makes me happy. Could Terry be any more awesome?

They got a Vive too. Very cool.

Better hope that 850 doesn't die, or you have extended warranty through the store. When mine died this week after only 9 months of use, Samsung stated they no longer support those units (SSDs).

Amd needs to release Vega already so Nvidia will put out the 1080ti to counter it. Otherwise I'm stuck waiting for Volta to be released next year, which isn't so bad considering I'm waiting on the 200 series intel chipset.

That's not what their website says...

I changed my mind last minute and went with the 950 PCIe SSD instead. read/write speeds are downright ludicrous

Man these GRX 1080s just won't drop in price fast enough, in Iceland most retailers want around $1200 CAD for them

I need a new mouse as mine is dying a slow death. The problem I've run in to is I have large hands so I want something that is big enough.

Currently I'm using a Mionix Naos 5000 which is great but they don't make them anymore. anyone have suggestions for something similar sized? It is 5.2"x3.3" so it is fairly large.

Typically, Steelseries mice overall are the largest I've used, Razer falls somewhere in the middle (though they have a few hefty ones), and Logitechs are often a bit smaller.

If you can find a used FUNC MS-3 I hear they are huge. The Mad Catz RATT mouse is adjustable size wise was well.

Corsair makes some chunky ass mice too.

yeah looking online the MS-3 seems to be the best fit but ever since they were bought by fnatic they don't make them anymore. The RATTS are apparently pieces of crap hardware wise (at least that is what the reviews online look like).

Yeah I don't like the RATTs myself.

Some of the Corsair mice are pretty hefty but I can't attest to their actual hardware/firmware quality.

I know everyone likes the crazy looking gaming mice these days, but I went to BestBuy and bought the successor to my old favorite - the G500 - instead:

I find it quite comfortable and I think I have big hands too.

Are we talking strictly gaming mice or what?

I've been using a cheaper Anker vertical mouse for the last few months and have liked it. Took a few hours to get used to but far less hand/wrist/neck fatigue/pain.

It comes in sizes. I got a large. I have large hands. It works well.

I can't stand vertical mice. I've tried them a couple times and have never really liked the feel of them. As long as the mouse is comfortable and has decent hardware I'd be good with it. I mean if I wanted a wireless mouse I'd just get a Logitech MX and be done with it.

The last time I had CTS type symptoms I switched to my left hand for a while, but I didn't know about those vertical mice. I now know a few people who use them and I wouldn't mind trying one.

But I'm also a Logitech or nothing person, I've tried a few other brands of mice and I always end up exchanging it for a Logitech.

Amazon has 30$ mice and keyboards that do the trick for me.

Picked up the EVGA 1070 FTW edition, based off reviews it was the best bang for my buck and the FTW was on sale for the same price as the stock. I have yet to put it to the test as I'm playing Warcraft right now but with everything maxed I went from 30FPS with my 770 to 100FPS.

I have an asus 1070 that powers a 3440x1440 monitor.

I'm pulling consistent 60fps in gta with settings set to very high or ultra. At ultra settings at 3440x1440 I am getting mid 50s with the ocassional drop to 41-45.

On witcher 3 in 1920x1080 windowed my card is barely getting above 70 degrees on ultra.

On fallout 4 my card is crushing it.

Big improvement over my 970 for this monitor.
