The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]



  Clio
Finally settled on my PC.


So far, I've bought the cooler, memory and PSU.

Hopefully get the motherboard, CPU and case and next month and then the GPU and SSD the month after and I'll be good to go.

Follow that up by the Moza R9 and GT Omega Prime Lite a few months after and that will be me ready.

Does anyone know if the Fanatec CLS Pedals are compatible with the Moza?

2TB SSD in the Ally now. Along with 3 months Game Pass Ultimate, a nice new carry case and about a dozen games installed. Including the all important one 👀

The carry case feels very nice for the price.

You should be alright with that mate.

The Fanatec software controls the wheel hub, the pedal base and any auxiliary items like the shifter and a handbrake.

It's entirely possible using that software to just have it for the pedal base alone. I did that previously when I had a set of Fanatec CSL Elite V1 pedals and used it in conjunction with my Logitech G27 at the time. The vast majority of titles allow you to configure non-connected devices to work together within the options menu.

I take it you haven't got the CSL pedals yet? If not, I would 100% recommend paying the extra for the load-cell equipped brake pedal. It makes a massive difference to the feedback within the braking zones.

I have the CSL pedals and CSL V1 wheel, its just the DD they haven't delivered, which renders it all useless at the moment. I did have a read about the connectivity. I assumed it would all run through the hub. Guess thats how it works when using all Fanatec on the box? PC has the mix and match options.

Few options on the table now, the eBay Fanatec 8nm or go for the Moza R9 or Fanatec defy all the odds and deleiver on what I paid for

The CSL pedals support both DD hub connectivity and USB connection straight to the PC. In fact, the latter is the only way that you can update the firmware on the pedal base. Don't connect both at the same time however, or else you can damage the unit.

That's ridiculous that the DD is still outstanding for you. The 8Nm version is simply the 5Nm version with a higher output power-pack as you probably know - but if you can find a decent one on eBay.......

just got my normal NVIDIA reminder for the updates and noticed 2 things weren't going ok, the Graphics Driver and the HD Audio Driver both failed. Any ideas on why this has happened please?

Did you run DDU and boot into safe mode before installing drivers? Sometimes they can mess up if you don't remove the old drivers first

Sorry I’m not a pc wizard, what’s DDU? I wouldn’t know how to remove the old drivers first, I’ve been doing the same thing I’ve been doing for a long time snd had no issues like this before

It's a program called Display Driver Uninstaller. It completely removes all traces of existing drivers from your PC so you don't get any weird issues when updating them. Try doing a clean install as @SharkyUK suggested above, but if it happens again then download DDU and try running that first.

A rough guess would be £5-600, depending on age?

Graphics card sells for right around 80 quid, processor 40ish, 50 quid ish for the mobo, 20 for the ram.

£250-300 is about right

Guy wants £400 for it.

My little one at home I use for 3d modelling has just s**t itself big time, so I was hoping I could cheaply bridge the gap.
If you have a GPU i have a HP Z820 Workstation i've recently replaced that should cover 3d modelling quite comfortable, Dual Processor/128GB Ram etc

My little girl loves playing Minecraft on her tablet, but once in a blue moon I'll stick it on the PC so she can play it with mods. Previously I've used a variety of texture packs, either high resolution vanilla style ones or realistic looking ones, and a path traced global illumination shader pack. The results have been pretty impressive.
Vanilla:

Modded:

Now those were fine, but the latest mods are absolutely mind blowing. Previously the default render distance was 12 chunks, and maxed out at 96 assuming your PC could even manage it. However there's a new mod called Distant Horizons, which allows a massive increase in render distance by using variable LODs. Combined with a mod which generates larger terrain features this gives the game a completely different feel. Here's a couple of screenshots with the render distance cranked up to 512 chunks, which my PC wasn't particularly happy about but was still more than playable.

I'm kinda surprised they're not doing a 4090Ti model to round the series off, 50 series cards are expected in about 6 months.

I'm looking at a new curved monitor around 34" but something that bothers me in fps game is the pixel pitch. Can you use say 2/3 (whatever's closest to 16:9) of the width of the screen in game with the edges blacked out?

Edit: Of course you cant duplicate pixels! Will need to go down to 32" with 3840x2160 at least..
