In my opinion, adding more RAM to a single GPU is hardly going to make games perform better on 2K resolutions or higher. It wouldn't surprise me if many people on such screens don't use up all 4GB,...

Knowing EVGA, I don't think they'd let a problem like that slide. They probably have direct access to modify the BIOS, so I'm sure that's a non-issue. Besides, the limits you speak of are probably...

8-pin power plugs don't actually supply any additional power. The spare 2 pins are just grounds, and in many 6+2 connectors, the +2 are directly connected to the other ground wires. The purpose of...

I guess it is possible - if your normal maximum read speed is 250MB/s but you have a 1.3GB file compressed into less than 250MB, then your CPU and RAM is handling most of the load.

I agree, but isn't Windows Server a lot like that? I never directly used a Windows Server setup on a PC so I don't really know.

For the extreme minimalist, there's Windows PE (or whatever it's...

Shhh.... last time I stated that people started arguing. The funny thing is Ubuntu is considered bloated, for linux.

I remember that used to be a problem but I'm not really sure that applies anymore. If MS intends to compress the entire drive, I can't imagine it's still an issue.

They better hurry up. Other companies are ready to release their own things and have their own technologies to help reduce nausea.

I find it funny how the people who think 100GB is ok seem to be legitimately offended and angry that people disagree. Seriously - it's an opinion. Though saying "the developers are lazy" may be...

Right but I'm sure the backers weren't expecting the game to be that huge. 100GB is NOT the lowest it can be - that's exactly the problem. I understand high-res textures take up significantly more...

You're completely missing the point - just because people have the hardware to play the game, it doesn't mean we want to waste it all. That's like buying a truck with 500HP, but the entire chassis...

I've thought of doing the same thing, but I'd rather not spend ~$100 of SSD space for 1 game.

Personally, I'd rather get a Blu-ray burner and put all of the low-demand files (like music or video...

Though I haven't played the game yet, I know what you mean. I think part of the problem is the game tries to be a little too much of everything. It's overwhelming to new users, it's probably...

This is pretty exciting. The Descent series was one of my favorites. But, this is a pretty ambitious game to re-create. I'll have to look into it more before I consider pitching in.
