Eh, I've seen some ppl who are ridiculous with the sticks but they would still get wtfpwned by the best pro gamers with a mouse/keyboard setup on PC FPS. There is a reason that mouse/keyboard adapters were banned at tournaments a long time ago and you have to use a controller with a console. And everyone competing will have a SCUF, that is a given.

Just started getting back into Path of Exile. Anyone with a halfway decent PC should check it out. It is totally free and is what Diablo 3 probably should have looked like if it stayed similar to how Diablo 1 and 2 were.

Been playing the **** out of PoE lately... some crazy builds out there and the node style leveling system is ridiculously good.

Anyway, for those with gaming PCs, Win10 dropped last night and is going to be the only OS to support DX12 so that is something to look at upgrading to in the near future. Its free, at least it is now. I already snagged the .iso file from Microsoft and am going to do a full cleanout of my case, bump the ram from 16gb to 32 and do a full wipe/load of Win10.

I was going to ask you about that. My pc refuses to look for updates for some reason. I have ran the Windows update troubleshooter numerous times and it has fixed some issues but I still can't search for updates. Without my laptop being updated i can't get Windows 10!

Windows 10

Click on the 64 bit tool version and choose to make an iso so you always have a digital copy of it. You can also use the same tool to make a bootable USB stick. I just burn the .iso file to a DVD and roll from there. Maybe a little outdated but cheap and easy to put in a cd book and not lose.

You will need your original product key too AFIAK.

edit: A bit confused if I am going to need my Win 7 or 8 key or if I have to have a Win10 specific one... hmmm...

Its not an update, its a clean wipe. If you need to update it you will have to wait for it to give you win10 or update it to let you take win10.

You could always format and then re-load windows 7 and then do all the updates and let windows update put win10 on there.

That might be how I have to do it if I need to buy a win10 product key which I will not do as I have legit 7 and 8 keys.

How to Clean Install Windows 10

You have to upgrade to 10 from a legit copy of 7 or 8 which then registers your computer's information on their servers as legit and THEN you can do a clean wipe/install.

So you would have to fix your issue or do a reformat with 7 or 8 and then take the upgrade to 10 and THEN do a clean install of 10 but at that point you'd have just done a clean install anyway.

Not sure if cracked versions of 7 or 8 will upgrade. If it says "genuine" in your system settings it should.

Yeah but if you can't get it to upgrade you'll still need to do a clean install of 7 or 8 to fix whatever gremlin you are having in your system.

Eeew Alienware... haha.

I like the troubleshooting options it lists. Legitametly none of them have to do with not being able to search for updates.

Well I'm going to put the disc in my machine when I get home in a bit and see if there is an option that pops up to upgrade from 8.1 to 10 via the disc. If that's the case then all you'd have to do is make the usb stick and install from there.

3.8 gigs I think. I am honestly just upgrading to see what it is like for now. My gaming rig is due for a wipe anyway and I may very well be going back to 7 until I get a DX12 capable card. I'll have to see.

Did the 10 upgrade on my gaming computer to make sure 10 was activated on it and then shut it down, cleaned it out, threw another 16 gigs at it and am now doing a full wipe and win10 install.

It's nothing to look at as gaming computers to but it was cheap and runs everything on high graphics with zero slowdown. I paid $600 to make it in 2010 and upgraded it for $350 or so last year.

I give up on this crap. I tried restoring from a previous time when I had no issues updating as well and that did nothing for me.

Lol, backup your files and do a clean install of 7. Use the Microsoft tool to use that iso to make a bootable usb stick. It'll put you on an older version of 7 Ultimate.

And before you do that, have a flash drive or external hard drive on the side with the correct wifi or LAN driver for your machine because the older version of 7 will likely not have the right driver.

Well did a full factory wipe and reinstall and now I have Windows 10. I realized I don't have anything on my laptop besides my steam games so I decided I might as well wipe it.

I had to wipe my gaming rig like 3 times lol. Apparently some BIOS' do not store the original Win7 or Win8 key. My laptop did, the gaming desktop did not. So the only way to "clean" install that is to wipe and reload 7, update to SP1, then throw in the Win10 disc and choose "keep nothing" when it asks what you want to keep. This effectively wipes it while activating it during the "upgrade".

Damn, there is a bigass sale going on on Steam right now. Going to pick up a legit Civ5 finally and probably a few other of these. Many of them do not exactly require a robust machine to run. Hell, KOTOR 2 could probably run on a smartphone lol.

It was a frustrating endeavor to be honest. I even recovered to a point where I knew I had i,stalled updates but that still didn't work. I like Windows 10 so far. My friend streamed Madden to his laptop and said it worked pretty well.

On the upside I upgraded from cat5 to cat6a or e (can't remember what it is) and moved my router from the kitchen to my living room and am experiencing about 30mbps more on average from my Xbox.

Eh... I get 60/60 with cat5 or almost anywhere in my house over the 5.0ghz band of my router, not sure I need much faster than that lol.
