#802367 What is your dream car?

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 08 March 2018 - 01:02 PM

only one word ....  GTR <3


There's one of these in the parking garage at work. I'm wondering who uses this as their commuter to work and parks in normal non-assigned parking where they can get a door ding. :noob


Edit: Took a picture for you. These things are apparently beasts. I've sadly never been in one.

#799447 Something's Not Right

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 20 February 2018 - 01:09 PM

Crosshair size is all personal. When I'm playing a lot and playing well, I can get by with a smaller crosshair. Currently I'm playing a couple different games and I'm resorting to larger sizes. Close range maps like Delivery I'll make it larger than say MLB Temple or Baserace. I use a size toggle like this to cycle through by pressing = . I recommend using something like this and change the sizes for your needs. Large size is easier to adjust and see while small is more accurate.


set size1 "set cg_crosshairsize 38; echo ^7Crosshair @ 38; set size vstr size2"
set size2 "set cg_crosshairsize 40; echo ^7Crosshair @ 40; set size vstr size3"
set size3 "set cg_crosshairsize 43; echo ^7Crosshair @ 43; set size vstr size34"
set size34 "set cg_crosshairsize 45; echo ^7Crosshair @ 45; set size vstr size4"
set size4 "set cg_crosshairsize 35; echo ^7Crosshair @ 35; set size vstr size5"
set size5 "set cg_crosshairsize 32; echo ^7crosshair @ 32; set size vstr size1
set size vstr size1
bind = vstr size

#798654 GPU Issues

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 15 February 2018 - 07:59 AM

So I've been tweaking the settings for the last day and it's looking pretty sharp now. I guess I just panicked expecting it to be amazing out of the box, but WTH, I moved to this beast from a GeForce 9800 lol. Like going to a Cadillac from a 73 Vega.


BTW, I just want to thank @TulsaGeoff who has been the main man throughout this entire Build process and @Fisticuffs for helping me out a lot on CFG settings, etc. You guys are amazing! I owe you a few good beers


You're welcome dude. Glad you finally found that video card and have it setup nicely. I wouldn't worry about burning up the card in any way as long as you don't significantly increase the voltage through a bios modification as Xernicus elaborated on. The first thing that typically goes are the fans on the cooler which you can always replace. I would still play with the overclocks on the CPU and GPU. That german Maximus X Hero tutorial is good on yourtube. :D

#798411 Hello, let me know what do you think about cryptocurrency?

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 13 February 2018 - 01:59 PM

This is all true. The best way to become a millionaire is save a huge part of your earnings for 30 years. Automatically investing into low fee S&P 500 funds works for many people. You have to remember that trading these things will put you up against some of the wealthiest and smarts people on earth so you or I would likely get crushed. Betting on it is okay but I wouldn’t recommend more than a couple percent of what you have invested in cryptos. Some people are much more bullish than this but absolutely do not use money that you cannot afford to lose like if you bought stuff on credit. I’ll be the first one to congratulate you on becoming a millionaire and you will probably cry when you have to pay taxes on all of it. An old Admin Dr Death used to do a little day trading. I’m not sure how it turned out for him. 


It's very volatile so it's a huge gamble if you're going to mine it, very risky if you're going to invest in it, etc. You'd probably have a similar chance of becoming a millionaire from playing a slot machine.

#798398 Hello, let me know what do you think about cryptocurrency?

I'm currently using two 1080 TI's to mine using NiceHash. I've been doing some free trading on gdax.com using money earned through nicehash like selling at $8700 and rebuying around $7500. Currently have half cash and half in bitcoin. It is a very insignificant amount for investment purposes for me and my goal is to pay for my gaming rig rather than become rich off of it. To me its too risky to throw alot of money at it, but I sure wish I threw some at it way back. :) I could say the same from Amazon stock and many others. I started in late December and bought the second card in January after seeing the results. I could now sell my cards for more than I paid... I have about $600-700 in my gdax account. Only about a couple grand more to go. FYI for anyone interested, the two 1080 TI's with 5ghz 8700K only make about $10-11 bucks a day. A month or two ago it was double that. I would expect the payout to decrease as the coins get harder to mine, but hopefully bitcoin along with the other coins appreciate to reflect the increase in difficulty.


I be curious what all your details are. Are you holding coins, what broker are you using, which currencies, etc?

#797177 Change KR (kill ratio) to KDR (kill/death ratio)

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 04 February 2018 - 10:59 AM

I'm not a fan of the distance factoring into the equation. Theres not much skill in blasting someone's face with a fg42 or knifing them down. If anything I think it should work the other way around. The issue with only shuffling based on PRW is that you can have slayers with lower PRW than obj players and it really screws up the teams. I believe way back (8-10 years ago) with the Silent and HC servers we experimenting with it and shuffle was based on PRW.  Shuffling on a kill metric works better than a win/lose metric.

#796907 New Build Is Done

how much do they usually go for? Some online stores in Noreay got them, but NOrway is usually quite expensive.


Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming  --   5400 NOK


MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio --  9000 NOK



Palit GeForce GTX 1070 Ti JetStream ----  5500 NOK



ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Core Edition  5000 NOK



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce ---- 9600 NOK



5000 NOK = 651.43 USD transfer


A month ago the top of the line versions of the 1080 TI cards were $800 and generally included at least one game. Approximately for 1080 cards $550, 1070 TI cards $500, 1070 $400-450. The will come back. Bitcoin is getting hit decently hard right now. While that was likely the initial cause. The current cause is now people buying them for resale due to the current mark up. I deal with this same BS with gun stuff every so many years... I don't think that this will last too long. Retailers just have not received shipments and these are all third party sellers.


That beast is going to fly when you get a card!

did u try online. Amazon or etc..


Yeah they don't exist for MSRP prices. I've been looking numerous times a day looking trying to help him get one. No model from any manufacturer for 1070-1080 TI is available right now.


Newegg, EVGA.com, B&H Photo, Bestbuy, pcpartspicker, amazon, Slickdeals.net, etc.

What is the longest range kill you got. I have seen people get around 1000m too with sniper and other guns. 


I think its only 340 yards or so. I couldn't tell you where it was but I'm not generally attempting those shots across the map with a loud sniper rifle telling everyone to come kill me :)

ah this is soooo tempting. Nice sniper shots. Great vid.


Making heads explode with the K43 and other bolt sniper rifles is so satisfying :)

#796165 Time To Build

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 26 January 2018 - 04:42 PM

LOL 9800 okay... You are going to be in for a TREAT when its all setup. Well, you should be able to get some semi decent frame rates using the internal graphics of the top of the line 8700K for ET and COD4. Prices that high just started about a week to two weeks ago. Once a large shipment makes its way to the retailers then prices will go right back down. Prices were normal mid November and Mid December when I bought. Every price you are seeing are bloody sucking scalpers right now.


If it comes down to it. I may let you borrow my old 570 GTX if you pay shipping both ways. It's just sitting in garage storage right now. Do not pay those scalper prices. It hurts everyone except the scum bags doing it! :)

#796086 Time To Build

Posted by TulsaGeoff on 26 January 2018 - 07:25 AM

I can get a 1080 right now, but I just do not want to spend $900. That would go too far over budget


It's a $500 card. Definitely do not spend $900. With a 4K screen you definitely want at least a 1070 ($400) or 1070 ti ($450) to play new games. It's just hard to get right now. Like when I bought all my stuff, I had no clue until when I was going to be able to get a 8700K. They will come back in stock after a little time passes. If you have an old videocard, I would throw that in until higher end cards come back.


You may also want to look at a 1440p screen with a higher refresh rate 144hz vs 60hz of a 4K screen.
