Christmas comes late for my PC with a EVGA GeForce GTX 960

evga geforce gtx 960I picked up the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 because of all the great reviews and it looked like the best bang for my buck.  I bought it off of Amazon Click here to buy to help me with my real time editing with CS 5.5 Premiere pro.   I know the software is a bit dated but if it isn’t broken don’t fix it right?

I have to say this video card is a lot longer then the card I had in before…  It also I found with the black plastic case harder to install in my Cooler master Haf 932 case.   Not Big deal though… I just added a screw to the install and it all worked well.

The Zotac GTX 560ti worked great for 3 solid years… never an issue one bit… It also played PC games well too.   I might find it a new home in a new editing system.  We will see if the budget can handle it.

I had to take off my cable management due to the card being longer then my last card.   You can see here.  I did trim the plastic on the cable management and now it fits just fine.   You don’t see much when you close the case see photo below.

A Pick up video with some views….

I was going though my channel and found this video to be getting some views… I have no idea why? Maybe someone shared it but hey i’ll take the extra views.. it is nothing special just some cheap pick ups this past summer when Gamestop was having a buy 3 for 10 bucks sale… It was a great sale and I really cleaned up… I’ll add some more videos to the site soon… I also have to do a new video game room tour… so much to do so little time and money.

Happy Gaming

Click Here for Full Article from Record Setters

Check out the link above from Record Setters for full article.  Also make sure you Click the Arrow button UP!  To help him get more exposure!

I watched the live feed around the 1st hour and it was awesome.  Ed was on and talking to everyone that came into the chat room.  It felt like I was right there in his living room.  Who would of known that a Thunderstorm would be the “kill screen” 56.50 hours later.    Still with Mother Nature against him.  Record Setters claimed Ed’s action as the “Longest Attempt At A World Record Cut Short By An Act Of Nature” 

Pretty awesome stuff in my book.  Great stuff and Congratulations to Ed Heemskerk on the Qbert  World Record.

Stay Stoked!

Doomed from the start? Doom 3 BFG Announcement Trailer

Well we all know what BFG from the Original Classic Doom stands for but Doom 3 BFG might as well stand for BFD (big f-ing deal).  Time and Time again Video games are coming back from the “so called” dead and being recycled and reused to bring back some gamers of yester-years.  Is it working?  Ummm I don’t know.  Those gamers seem to have moved onto either ipad touch games or taking care of their children, mortgage, jobs, etc.  There seems to be a lull in video games right now.  So much still to play but kind of all the same old same old.  I mean if someone wanted to play Doom couldn’t they just play the original one?  I know people that still are playing it.  I must say for the time I enjoyed the first Doom.  I didn’t playing it on PC but I played it on the Sega Genesis 32x.  It worked out to be pretty fun and still gave me enough motion sickness to leave me dizzy for weeks.  Well with all that being said the Trailer for this game looks pretty damn good.  They should try and release it around Halloween or something seeing this game has more of a horror factor to it than the original one.   Will this be one your pick up?  Comment below and let me know your thoughts.  I would wait till this one hit the bargain bin IMO.

Thanks

The Retro Gamer in You!


A Gamer that goes by “TC” put up MAME Arcade Galaga High Score of 176,320 not bad for a “noob” that hasn’t played the game in over 25 years.  The score was witnessed by me (see video above) and at my new MAME Cocktail arcade cab (see build here). The score is far from a World Record (world record is currently being held by Andrew Laidlaw, a great guy btw) but stage 20 for a person that hasn’t played this game in over 25 years? I think it is pretty impressive stuff. It just makes me think of all the other players out there in the world that don’t go for World Records. Maybe they still have it in them? Maybe they could take down some of the WRs that are out there if they put some time into it? I guess I will have to hit up that person one at at time.
