The Tom's Hardware Community is constantly busy. Whether our members are discussing the site's latest articles and reviews, providing tech support and building advice, or playing the latest PC Games, we have so much great stuff going on that it could make your head spin! Not to worry -- Community Roundup is here to let you know the best of what's going on in the Tom's Hardware forums on a regular basis.
- We finally had the chance to get Nvidia's budget brawler in the lab for a review. We were excited to review Nvidia's 1050 and 1050ti, cards that are definite value proposition, selling for $110 and $140 respectively. We had mixed feelings about the Geforce 1050 and 1050ti. Although we found the 1050 to be a "winner," the gains afforded by the 1050ti were not "worth $30 more." Make sure to hit the link and read the full review. After your done give us your expert opinion in the Pascal MegaThread in the Graphics Card Forums.
- Not much has changed between now and our last request for builds. It's hardly been a month since we published the feature. Nevertheless, one big piece of news has dropped. Oculus lowered the requirements for a VR Ready PC thanks to an algorithmic technology it's calling "asynchronous space warp." We thought the news was a big enough bombshell to warrant a request for new builds in an entirely new category: The $600 Oculus Rift Ready PC. You can offer your best build in the Systems Category on the Tom's Hardware Forums. Submissions will be accepted until November 9.
- Bottlenecking is a constant battle for the PC enthusiast. Managing GPU performance with the limits of the CPU can be a bit difficult at times. How much is too much GPU? Are you wasting your money? What exactly is bottlenecking anyway? Our intrepid moderator and Tom's Hardware resident expert TechyInAZ was kind enough to craft an in depth tutorial to help you parse through the nuances of bottlenecking. If you still have questions related to the tutorial, head to the forum post and our expert community would be happy to help.
- Computers fail. You need a backup to protect your data. Whether you are backing up terabytes of video, gigabytes of music, or megabytes of emails and text documents, there's a drive for you. But which one is the best? This is where you come in. What's the best backup drive? What would you recommend to everyone on Tom's Hardware? Let us know in our Best Backup MegaThread located in the Storage Forums.
