Are you sure you have a 970ti? Because that does not exist. A good upgrade option for 1080p / 1440p is the GTX 1070 they just got a price drop. You can get a new one for about 460 on newegg and a used one on eBay for 400$ if you have a 970 you will see a big fps increase. A good budget option is a used Rx 480 on eBay for 230$ You may just want to keep your current card because sub 200$ cards will have the same proformance as your 970

Buying a sub 250$ card won't be much of an upgrade. Better off keeping it or selling it and pay around 400 for a 1070

Gaming level laptops
Why don't we actually get massdrop to offer gaming level laptops for sale? I personally have the new HP Notebook with an AMD A8-7410 processor that has 6GB of RAM and a pretty impressive architecture. I can run Supreme Commander at it's highest settings, 80% load at about 45-60FPS. On the flipside though I've found that Space Engineers whilst being optimized recently to vastly improve framerate due to being able to skip atmos calculations now with the option to disable airtightness does suffer from extremely long load and compute times on this machine. I love this machine to death and while it isn't the level of machine I would be talking about offering, it's a good one just to use for an example. No, the ones I'd be looking at massdropping would be models with maybe 8-10 or even 12 GB of RAM and most likely high-end APUs or CPU/GPU combinations with nice specs across the board in order for people to at least get their hands on these machines and try them out to write reviews...

Console vs PC: Which should you buy?
[image] Setting the Stage The debate on which platform is best for gaming has been raging since the beginning of time....of gaming. The Rules of Debate Be nice. I've seen people get heated over this topic and that is not what I'm looking for here. This is more than a debate about what platform is "better." In some ways you can prove this on paper but in many others it remains entirely subjective. I'd really like to hear what you enjoy gaming on, and why. I'll Start... For me, I'm an avid enough gamer, with time really being the restricting factor when it comes to how much/many games I play. I also game on multiple platforms, both PC and XBOX. For me, gaming is all about the time online with family and friends. I move enough that I have lots of friends and family that live all over the place. I'm also not the guy that's going to call you up and ask how you are doing, even if you're my brother haha. I will however jump into a game of Battlefield on XBOX with the main...
