    I cant agree with that Reddoguk. There are lots of people out there that have no idea about these things but prefer pc's and are smart enough to appreciate things like Steam and its sales. For example my brother has been using a pc for years and has no idea what even a resolution setting is and this type of software saves me a lot of headaches. Now if you ask him to find you big butt, fishnet covered ladies, holding a birthday cake and a pineapple he is your man no doubt.

    lol @ the bday cake and pineapple, but I have to agree, if you don't even know what resolution is, you should have a console

    If you're gonna game on a PC, you need to know how to use a PC first, if you don't, stick to something simple, or learn :)

    The whole reason for PC gaming, is higher rez, better graphics quality/setting options, and performance - if you're not using those options / benefits, stick to a console

    A console is a tool used for mainly gaming. A PC is a learning tool which is also capable of gaming.

    I realize some people have no interest in learning about PC stuff but this is not that place. That's why so many here are outraged about this.

    People who come to this site are more likely to be the tinkerers, those who enjoy gaming but also like to test, prod, poke away at settings until their PC is on it's knees and then maybe even to breaking point.

    I have no problem with those people that don't want to learn but please don't force me to be one of them also.

    I'm sorry, but when did nvidia do something other than what we expect of them?

    I can't argue with you guys and in no way do I agree with forcing it on users that have no use for it if it ends up being true. I just meant that it has its place for dummies like my bro and i appreciate it being available.
    Speaking of him, he is a special case that has seen the better graphics and knows he'll get free hardware upgrades passed on and is smart enough to wait for me to waste my money and put games on stream family share. If i wasn't around it would definitely be console only as there would be no other option since he cant even run an installer...

    Ugh I really hope I dont have to install the geforce experience.

    I have existed all these years without it, I cant see it improving my life in any way shape or form.

    p.s reddoguk makes some good points!

    Lol...;) Have always perceived nVidia to encourage childish and pompous PR--a big reason I've haven't owned a nVidia product since 2001. But this takes the cake even for nVidia's bumbling & stumbling. The DX12 mess currently is just one more of the same-old for nVidia, imo (This isn't the first time nVidia's claimed to support features in hardware they just haven't "turned on" yet! HaHa...;) The company never changes, it appears. "3.5GBs is as good as 4GBs," etc.) NVidia will have to eat this and change this, certainly--probably very quickly. Or, maybe the company *wants* to have users abandon its products in droves. Who knows. If you are 14 years old you might even like what nVidia offers...;) Weird & dumb times we live in, eh?

    We'll have to agree to disagree on that point...;)

    "The Fixer" is so stupid it's actually slightly funny. The "GFE" is pablum for morons, imo...;)

    Correct me if I am wrong but haven't keyboard and mouse developers been doing this for years anyway? If you want to use the full feature set of your hardware you usually have to install some crapware to get it to work. SSD makers do it as well with firmware updates. I've had issues with both, Corsair's software hardlocked my PC on install and Samsung's Magician stopped my computer from booting in to Windows.

    So yes I am against the requirement to install software to use your hardware correctly but NVE is a piece of software that has worked flawlessly for me, it does the job. If the software does as it's meant to then Ill use it because frankly I can't be bothered trawling for drivers anymore, install the software and let it do the job for me, if it does it without making an arse of things then I am happy.

    Don't get limited by small minded companies. Razer does that, I do not use their mouses (I have Razer Destructor Mouse-pad). I use Roccat mouses, because while you need their software to configure mouse, once you are done and satisfied. It can go away forever as mouse holds all settings.

    And Firmware update? Is complaint about that some form of joke? How do you want to write into flash chips without special tool? It is actually form of protection. Allowing tool-less FW writes anywhere...

    But in general I think everyone agree, that issue is not in existence of GFE (some may have trouble caused by this), but issue comes from being forced to install something what does not add any value to then.

    AMD maybe wanted to do same, but they did question poll here and there, and Raptr ended 70% negative (either tested and unwanted or not used at all as bloatware). Raptr tells you that there is new driver/beta driver too+DL. But I think main issue is exclusivity. As something you could get by yourself on a whim is supposed to be GFE exclusive feature.

    after the FuryGates here is the GEforcegates... lol

    even if NV does it don't you use some mail like this: "iwillbuy.AMDnext@yandex.ru" or "ip00p.onsystem@google.ae" (*edit* have no patent on those if aviable you can use them lol)

    it's the basis (with prépaid phone too, don't forget to paid it in cash lol :) )

    more seriously whatever they will do it there will always have a way to do without...

    What kind of drugs are they smoking at Nvidia ? Forcing customers to use the GFE is one of the most terrible ideas they can come up with for this year. Do they have a team of people who gather and decide "How can we annoy every customer ?". This is outrageous ! Why would they strip me of the choice ??? I think we should all express our opinions directly to Nvidia by writing directly to someone who is responsible for this mess. I don't want to be a sheep with no choice !!

    I don't see the problem here.

    etc etc

    I beg to differ.

    I also want to do a clean install, not have to update over an existing installation, with a safe mode DDU in between. Nvidia is taking away customer choice and presenting it as something good. It isn't.

    Seriously..........where is all the butthurt coming from?

    People who ar worried about their "bloatware" that they do not want on their computers either need to upgrade their hardware, or stop trying to squeeze out every last frame because of a benchmark. And blame performance in some software that is taking up system resources....

    I'm sure people are seriously complaining about OC software (AB/Evga) that needs to be ran in order to get that overclock we all want. That software takes up more system resources and CPU threads than what people are complaining about with GFE.

    I say yeah go on and "completely" switch up teams in terms of what you support because the grass is definitely not any "greener" on the other side. This is the support the comsny doesn't want from people like that....."oh wait.....they're changing something that I (personally) don't like so I am going to flame them and burn the company to the ground.......!"

    And for people wishing peoples' testicles would fall off form decisions being made..... Get a life....seriously you are what is wrong with the world today.

    Today's society needs to get off their asses and make something of themselves instead of the instant gratification, sorry excuse of a generation it has become....
