    [–] HDD silencer/enclosure (2,5") in 2018?! orbspike 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    I had a drive that made a lot of noise. I did end up replacing it. Not sure what else you could really do

    If they cared about games they would make their games for multiple platforms and not take down fan made games

    Nintendo Switch is probably also going towards multiplayer games. You still need to pay for online. It's not a good thing, stop acting like it is.

    [–] HDD silencer/enclosure (2,5") in 2018?! orbspike 3 points ago in pcmasterrace

    It may meant he HDD is failing. Why not buy a new hard drive. You don't need to buy an SSD just a hard drive of the same size to replace it.

    Yes but I would rather keep the money then spend it on games I don't want or need. The only game I want is Far Cry 5 and Sea of thieves. I don't want any other games because I got all my games super cheap. Discounted games are a very common thing on PC. So are free games and I didn't have to spend $60 a year.

    Watch_dogs was free on PC. Trials is $5. Superhot was free for a while. Borderlands 2 was $5 when I got it. Dead space was free. I don't know about the other games since I haven't played them but most of these games that you are basically spending money on because of the subscription could be gotten for little to no money on PC. Then you also get the amazing free online for those games forever for free. How can you see that this is a good thing.

    With 100 games on my steam library and more on other distributors there is no value in it for me and many others who have also got many games for super cheap in the steam store.

    Yes but on Xbox it's not just a few games it's any multiplayer game or multiplayer feature on a game

    [–] Is this a new trend? orbspike 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Must be PlayStation i'm thinking off. How is paying for online worth it? Might as well use that money on a few games you actually want instead of lots of games you don't want. When I had an Xbox I only played one or two of the free games because most of them were trash.

    What if you have all the games you want like I do? You still have to pay it with no benefits

    [–] I'd like to see your Xbox One do THIS orbspike 2 points ago in pcmasterrace

    What I really want to see is 60fps in every game.

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 6 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Reduced input lag. No need for batteries. Batteries don't run out mid game. No need to recharge. Take your pick. You need to realise that defending a company for making you pay for online is anti consumer and is the reason consoles are so terrible.

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 8 points ago in pcmasterrace

    And without the consoles we would have games just made for PC. What's your point. PC exclusives are very good IMO.

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 9 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Not sure you get it. Maybe console gamers don't get out much. USB ports have a bandwidth maximum. The Xbox One has 3 USB ports. You use 2 extra hard drives and you can then only plug in one controller. You then have to swap drives based on what games you want to play. Those games will load slower due to them running through USB.

    A PC can have lots of hard drives running through SATA and sometimes even multiple running through M.2 if your motherboard supports it. My motherboard supports an M.2 drive and it was a very very budget B250 board. Internal storage will always be better than external.

    Also those games aren't free. You are paying for a subscription service to access them and then can't use them once you stop. That's like saying watching shows on Netflix is free.

    Slow storage. Then you have to carry around that storage with your console. Also is a waste of USB ports. Cost more. A PC can have as many drives as your case and psu will take and ssds for super fast storage.

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 34 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Yes but that's how we ended up with consoles with paid online. Its that anti consumerism that people accept because "its only $20". That's why Sony and Microsoft get away with it.

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 8 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Because PCs can very easily have more storage

    [–] Saw this and thought it belonged here! orbspike 64 points ago in pcmasterrace

    "Only $20 a year" you are in that mindset. That's how they get you. Next it will be "its only been raised by $5.

    [–] It's getting to be that time of year again. orbspike 3 points ago in pcmasterrace

    The one good thing about owning a 1050. It runs at 60c non stop

    [–] Check if 60fps! orbspike 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Probably because of your CPU. My PC runs it at above 60fps.

    I don't have a job. I worked odd jobs for my pc

    [–] 5 Things that would make CS:GO beautiful. orbspike 1 points ago in GlobalOffensive

    Then maybe they should get a better PC. Not my fault they have a 20 year old pc

    [–] 5 Things that would make CS:GO beautiful. orbspike 5 points ago in GlobalOffensive

    A lot of those countries can buy the game for $5. If they can't run a game from 2012 its not our fault

    [–] 5 Things that would make CS:GO beautiful. orbspike 2 points ago in GlobalOffensive

    Yeah I have a 1050 and get 250fps easily

    [–] 5 Things that would make CS:GO beautiful. orbspike -2 points ago in GlobalOffensive

    CS:GO is one of the easiest games to run. A pentium can get 200-300 fps. I'd say 128tick is more important
