  1. Hi - I received my Elgato 4k60 S+ game capture box and did a simple comparison video between it and game capture using nVidia Share (formerly Shadowplay). YouTube was still rendering the video to 4k60FPS at the time of posting, but it's interesting none-the-less. Full details of method and equipment in video description.
  2. Thank you...will try that! Also, 3090s have gone up from £1,400 to £2,400 at Overclockers. Bonkers.
  3. Any update on this? Or what’s the best way to deploy Rockeyes?
  4. Ah thank you - I have 2 x 1 M.2 1TB drives ... so one must go into Slot One hopefully!
  5. Hi, I'm looking at buying a high-quality recording system for my PC. Settled pretty much on the Elgato 4k60 S+ - the version which records at 4k60fps of course and to SD card (fast one needed clearly). https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elgato-Standalone-Recording-Zero-Lag-Passthrough/dp/B082N68RNS?ref_=ast_sto_dp My question to anyone who has this is will it record at 4k60 and output the image to the gaming monitor at 4k60 too? So far the passthrough resolutions appear to be lower, which is an issue, but would like to hear from anyone with this system. Many thanks.
  6. willdo! BTW, how much memory does Syria at HIGH terrain textures take up with draw distance at max?
  7. Swap confirmed: £90 back and system here by March 11th
  8. Update: on Thinder's recommendation, have asked to swap out the 5900X for the 5800X
  9. Thanks guys - yes heard great things about Scan and they a re a bit cheaper than OCUK too ... re 5900x v 5600x ... I did reason with the extra 200MHz (every one counts I guess!) - funnily enough I was offered the 5800X immediately as it is available, but all idiots like me are jumping on the 5900x bandwagon. Yes, I did once build my system from scratch: an AMD Thunderbird Athlon 1.4GHz system waaay back in 2002. But this new one has a watercooler and I didn't want to F*** it up
  10. Thank you for all this advice - so much appreciated. Well, the specs of the 5900X system are somewhat already decided by Scan.co.uk. The system is: LN64660116GB SCAN 3XS USB3 FLASH DRIVE£0.00 Inc VAT LN1114491AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU OEM TRAY£0.00 Inc VAT LN1117111AMD Ryzen Far Cry 6 download£0.00 Inc VAT LN9977713XS Asus ROG STRIX X570-F GAMI£0.00 Inc VAT LN4643713YR WARR 1ST ONSITE 2/3rdRTB£0.00 Inc VAT LN9640012x16G CorDomPlatRGB DDR4 3200£0.00 Inc VAT LN10774213XS 60cm ASUS ROG Add RGB LED£0.00 Inc VAT LN11034213XS CORSAIR 4000D
  11. ...but the GFX card is permanently maxed out both in resources and memory ... so that seems to be the significant bottleneck in the system. The 3090 should be a nice upgrade with the 5900X!
  12. Nice performance boost too from the O/C setting: Non-OC: O/C:
  13. Reduced Terrain Textures in Syria from HIGH to LOW and it has helped a great deal...memory usage now down to 23GB from 29GB. Not a huge reduction in visual quality, noticeable but not massive.
  14. Ah - I have turned on the overclockers.co.uk performance boost mode - so it should run now at 4.5GHz rather than 4.0GHz (CPU)
