    i agree buy a product based on your situation, not on brand... i see people on youtube with silly claims that amd sucks and will increase your power bill dramatically

    This has become a major issue itself. Some people will keep preaching their opinion, trying to pass it off as fact until others finally agree with them. If they don't get that satisfaction, they simply start attempting to derail the thread.

    Others, feel the need to disrupt any thread about a product or company they blindly dislike. Threads concerning AMD products are perfect examples. Some Intel/NVidia users will go into AMD threads just to disrupt them. They offer nothing of value to the threads at all, but feel an incessant need to disrupt every AMD thread that's started. The mods continually allow it to happen....so it will continue to happen and degrade the forum.

    Some people find a brand they like and stick with it. Personally I will only ever buy Nvidia and Intel. I've owned one AMD processor and one ATI GPU in the last 20 years and both gave me headache after headache with issues.

    Same thing with WD HDDs. I bought one Seagate drive that died within a year and will never buy anything other than WD again.

    I don't have anything against people that buy AMD, their products just don't work for me.

    AFAIC these forums are the epitome of 'fair'. There are oldtimer gurus on here that get away with a lot frankly, and by now would be banned on other forums easily.

    That said, it does appear that these forums have gotten "clogged up" with fanboyism a lot more over the past few years compared to how it was in the late 2000s and early 2010s.

    On a more personal note, I really don't understand the fanboyism and how fanatic people get when it comes to brands and devices. Its pretty embarassing actually how much time and energy people will invest to argue about things that are so petty and frivolous.

    See a lot of pops being taken in this thread, a lot of hypocrisy too. I say lock this before it gets out of hands.

    Drug threads being started, vramgate enthusiasts parading themselves in this very thread acting all innocent.

    A lot of the latest crap is down to kids being on summer holidays. Simple as that.

    HH you have a pm. I don't want to be part of this community any more. Bye all.

    Just saw this thread, I was the one who reported the drug thread, wth.
    How many people posting in this pile on thread that have never been infracted?, how about previous banned members?, how about people continuing to call the 970 a 3.5gb card and keep touting the kepler downgrade theory nearly daily? Some people need to look in the mirror.

    I don't understand what the fuzz is, I don't remember if topics about drugs was specifically a no-no in the rules but DMT is legal in The Netherlands afaik.

    People were already bring up LSD in there. It was inevitable that thread would get closed.

    we have a chillout thread somewhere, maybe we can add some background music to threads where people are reporting disturbances? it would be quite funny though

    I understand what you mean with that mate. Just take abreak from here. :)

    Drug thread, what drug thread? Looks like i missed some serious weekend Bull**** posting lol.

    Fact is people don't like the truth, the truth hurts remember. My TitanX was not worth the £900 that i paid for it, thats the truth. However im happy with that. Get were im coming from all you whiners lol, take a leaf and all that.

    As for the mods i don't think they actually care about people having an opinion, its what makes a forum what it is along with the community.
    Its all the whiners that are the problem "Running to Daddy because somebody said something negative about the hardware that i own and they don't like the hardware that i own".

    Pathetic tbh.

    Thread shoulda been closed after the first post.

    I see a lot of people doing pretty much what the thread started to be about including a few that have been in on some of the 'better" ones it's hilarious.There isn't that many active forums any more so this one gets a little of everything. I just stay out of the more vocal threads because it's pointless people should just report and stop engaging or you're just as bad and are part of the problem as well and clutter up the thread needlessly.

    I think it is really sad that people feel the need to bag on people because they bought a different brand then they did. And if you pay attention to these threads that have been closed, I see some of the people with the highest post counts are peppered in these closed threads. Over and over.

    I can relate, also not too overwhelmed with my SLI Strix 980s, yet that doesn't mean I would have bought CFX 290s now. At the time I bought them, it was the best purchase I could have taken. Which doesn't mean the 290s are bad cards in all circumstances and by themselves, only that I wanted to go a different route.
    Still it has nothing to do with my opinions in other threads (and about that dx12 stuff and async stuff), which happens to differ from quite a few people's obviously.

    What I don't understand, why should the 'infracted' leave a comment here? I'm not sure what they could add to this topic more than anybody else.


    Cute :D
