  1. Steam

    Mentioned this in shoutbox yesterday when Bethesda sent an email, making a quick post since the deal is now live. Note that the base game is free to play, DLC is not included but you can always mod to your hearts content with either Steam or NexusMods. User reviews are mixed due to the hardcore following (which I understand) and most the mechanics are dumbed down, too much settlement busywork and annoying characters - however I really enjoyed it and have over a 1k hours which is more than normal due to the numerous mods I have installed and my passion for building huge settlements. There's enough DLC content and it's good enough quality in my opinion bar Contraptions but the best DLC is no doubt Far Harbor. Fallout 4, OpenCritic score of 87%, is free to play over the weekend and -67% off base game and -40% off season pass - http://store.steampowered.com/app/377160/ If you're still not sure check out the game yourself and grab some mods and I suggest the following, none of these will cause game-breaking issues compared to the other mods: MOD: Achievements - simply allows you gain achievements with mods, relies on F4SE. MOD: Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch - essential bugfixes and balancing BUT only install if you have ALL DLC since it relies on other assets. TOOL: LOOT - same tool you use for other Fallout and Elder Scrolls series of games to ensure optimal priority of mods load order MOD: New Dialog - aimed at showing what the character would say than annoying you with answers you wouldn't say MOD: Improved Map with Visible Roads - what it says on the tin! I can lead you deeper down the rabbit hole (more complicated) and quickly mention DEF_UI for more of your inventory to be displayed without RSI-inducing scrolling, Place Everywhere which makes building less frustrating and requires F4SE which is why it won't run on consoles, and Spring Cleaning is safe to use (much safer than Scrap Everything) for those wanting perfect settlements or OCD sufferers alike. Like with any mod and especially these: read the description carefully, watch videos, and check the comments.

    Steam Deals, Post 'Em Here If you come across a great deal and we should know about a must have game, let us know, simple Tips (post yours if you have 'em) : The best deals are the short Flash deals and generally don't get any cheaper, next is Daily Deal, then the normal Weekly Deal. For completing badges or achievement you may get discount vouchers for a random title. These vouchers have an expiry date and discount can vary from 25% to 90% judging from the ones I've received. If you miss a Holiday Flash or daily deal I do recall they always come back on offer on the last day. Check out SteamPrices - it keeps track of prices, if your region is ripping you off or it's genuinely a fantastic offer you'll get a very good idea. Personally I don't count 50% off as great discount unless the game is poor, if under 3 months since release I'd think again. 50% off DLCs is a good deal and around 75 to 90% is worth snapping up titles. The discount depends on the original price of the game, like it being set artificially high to begin with, and if it comes with extras such as soundtracks, DLCs, maps/guides. Check deals on Green Man Gaming, GOG, GamersGate, SteamDB, HumbleStore, Enhanced Steam addon or check out the retail copies via search comparison sites or go to the old brick n mortar stores. If you've already got the game on your Wishlist then you should never miss out as Valve email you an alert. Steamprices and SteamDB harvest every game available, here are my 3 picks for 19th Dec 2013 I think you should check out: - BioShock Triple Pack (BioShock/BioShock 2/BioShock Infinite) - rated: 96%/88%/94%) £9.31/$14.99 - Store - Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition Double Pack (84/100) - rated: 91% £0.26/$0.44 - Store - Trine - rated: 90% £0.69/$0.99 - Store - Hard Reset Extended Edition - rated: 73/100 £2.49/$3.74 - Store

  6. Firstly, if you don't know where to buy from then may I suggest you hire a product manager to help select, organise and negotiate such deals first in your particular region. Secondly, it's perfectly fine to ask for guidance on GPUs like most tech forums but please avoid potentially soliciting for business and hoping a company bites your hand off to do a deal. That's not the purpose of this forum in order to avoid any issues arising from a potential scenario. As it says on the main website for our email addresses, we are a media site and don't buy or sell hardware.

  9. That is an MS issue and they said it was a risk for those that updated Nvidia driver version 381.65 (last month) was the first to support the Creators update and any issues that are discovered should be addressed in subsequent drivers, yes it's slow but MS also changes a lot. Any issues with a driver please make that known as you've done already. Worth mentioning the Creator update warning again since it can result in your 'older' PC being stuck in a reboot cycle or make it unreliable: MS' John Cable said: ""We continue to recommend (unless you're an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered to you."

  16. Corsair, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components, today announced its extensive compatibility for the groundbreaking new range of AMD Ryzen processors and the AM4 platform. With a completely new CPU architecture, chipset and CPU socket, AMD Ryzen demands the latest in performance PC hardware. With a wide range of compatible DDR4 memory, liquid CPU coolers and PSUs, CORSAIR has everything enthusiasts need to make AMD Ryzen CPUs run to the full extent of their abilities. “CORSAIR is uniquely positioned for the launch of AMD Ryzen, with an outstanding range of not just high performance DDR4 memory, but liquid CPU cooling and power supplies as well,” said Travis Kirsch Director, Product Management, Client at AMD. “CORSAIR offers everything system builders need to get the absolute best performance from AMD Ryzen and the new AM4 platform.” AMD Ryzen CPUs require the latest DDR4 memory and CORSAIR has a growing range of AMD Ryzen qualified high-performance DDR4 memory, with more kits being certified for Ryzen processors every day.

Brackets start shipping on March 2nd, so check http://www.corsair.com/ryzen for full details. What’s the use of performance without the power to supply it? CORSAIR PSUs have been trusted by PC enthusiasts for over a decade, winning hundreds of industry and reviewer awards thanks to a complete commitment to quality, reliable and performance. Now that legacy comes to AMD Ryzen, with every CORSAIR PSU fully compatible with all new AMD X370, B350 and X320 chipset motherboards.

  18. Hi RajesgRD, based upon the M335 (Tonga, released June 2015) using GDDR3 and 1070MHz clock it's certainly a 2GB GPU as you quickly gathered, I doubt the information within AMD CCC is wrong but worth checking with GPU-Z (post to download link) than relying on one tool alone as that is more than good enough. The M335 is noted by AMD to go "up to" 4GB but I found that 2GB M335 was more common at low-end but ofc manufacturers have flexibility depending on their range - exact specifications MUST be given and be accurate at the time it's publicly available to avoid undue stress . (email them + keep everything written down of what you are doing, never use the phone, to keep the complaint official) Therefore as it features only 2GB VRAM it doesn't fit your needs and depending on the time you purchased this item which is normally 30-days, you are entitled to full refund or free replacement (factory sealed and not a refurbished unit) until you are satisfied. At no point (depending on your consumer rights in your region but noted you are from UK same as me) should you normally be expected to return the item at your costs, it's up to them to pick it up unless you are happy to be refunded P&P costs. As you are returning the item, the period for returns is paused and can be return again until they rectify their mistake otherwise once the normal period for returns is over you lose your right to full refund/replacement and likely will only receive a refurbished unit. The onus is on them. Again, this depends on your regional laws but most of this applies nonetheless. On the Intel website (direct link) they do note the Inspiron 17 5000 features 4GB VRAM: "MD Radeon R5 M335 4GB DDR3". Amazon also list (link #1 / link #2) the 4GB M335, For reference here's the Videocardz database entry: https://videocardz.net/amd-radeon-r5-m335/ Since you mention it was sold promising 4GB video memory then iGPU doesn't count as you can only pair with dedicated GPU if it was an AMD APU, in any case pairing them brings very little gains to performance.

    Welcome to the forum 1stCowGirl! As standard the driver and Physx are the only components I install. It's the installation file accessing those URLs no matter what you do or do not install. As I did, use your firewall to block this even though it appears harmless but unnecessary on the part of Nvidia, same goes for Nvidia's telemetry (meant for diagnosing bugs but monitoring nonetheless) once you have installed selected components.
