Feedback on 1 point of the video: You can download and play in steam, it automatically pauses downloads on game start but you can just start it while the game is running..

Another point of feedback would be a lil less freestyle on the chat, sorry Matt but you ramble a bit and some of it makes no sense. re 12GB on 780ti, no developer will do something to use 12gb when every other card is at 2-3gb..
There is a good 10 mins that can be cut if you tried to think about what your saying and said it rather than trying to think on the fly, I found myself getting bored about half way through.
Probably just be a bit more ruthless on the edit to be fair cos I like the natural chat feel of the show.

How long is it between you recording and releasing an episode?

He'll be referring to the hush hush GTX 780 ti Dark Edition w 12GB VRAM....obviously for 4K monitors ;)

some feedback.
you should consider talking in dynamic environments.
talk while walking. hold the product your talking about while your in a store.(preferably a sponsor store or a store that is giving a wicked deal to HC members)
heck even talking while driving would be cool. also i think you guys should streamline you chat before you start the show. these will not only allow you to make cuts so editing is easier later.
but it also allows you to chapter your show into sections with different and distinguishable backgrounds and stuff. believe it or not some newer viewers may be interested to learn more about
the hosts and where they are from. it may sound corny but if this is going to be news it's going to have to compete with what is out there right now to get attention.
and sitting there staring at a couch the whole time is something i can do with my buds with beer already. and last... you need a chick on the show.. even if it's a once in a while appearance.
actually cameo's in general would be good. i mean the cameo could even be a sales guy at the store talking about the product or something along those lines. anyways that is my 2 cents.
i work in this field and this is something i would love to see you guys do moving forward. i really want this show to do justice for us northerners.

Thanks for the constructive comments guys.

Dzzope, we can agree to disagree on some things. I feel there *could* be a demand for a 6GB+ GDDR card (like a 12gb card lol) based on the way resolutions are going and how these 'next gen consoles' and therefore maybe even console ports are rumored to use the Vram. Hell, we all said the same thing about a 2gb card back when 512mb was the norm. But we can discuss my opinion about that later in the GPU section.

I appreciate the feedback however.

I do ramble a bit, and I'm going to work on that, need to reign that stuff in :)

I think it's a great format myself. It's what's discussed that should be of interest not some B cup bimbo. I love the index as well. Works good. BTW it's spelled Graphene. ;)

We all know that if you want to do 3 monitor gaming (aka Eyefinity or nVidia surround) you typically want at least 2GB of vRAM to game with all the settings maxed, and usually 2.5GB or 3GB variants of cards perform slightly better (though typically don't warrant the premium cost)

3 monitor at 1920 x 1200 means 5760 x 1200, that's quite the resolution to run on a 2GB of vRAM.
3 monitors at 2560 x 1400 means 7680 x 1400, I'd hate to think of the actual resolution being rendered on a 6 monitor 1920 or 2560 set up.

Hell for example sake you need TWO HDMI cables or 51% of a DP 1.2 bandwidth to get 4k on a single monitor at 60Hz. I know it's ridiculous, but what if you wanted to run 2 or 3 of those in Eyefinity (I've tested this setup at work in 2D environments) or nVidia surround? You're going to need the vRAM to helps support that.

I've little doubt that we will get there(re the 12GB).. But not till 4k becomes more popular or tri 1440 etc.

I do like the idea of being more dynamic with the environment.. Even if it was to have an image on a screen between you or a tab or as said above, walking through past a store or with a product or box in your hands (though that is much harder to film) or have a pre-selected (short, 5 - 10 sec) clip as you start talking about something.
Think the (UK) Top gear news bit. Very good format.

Voting for Skymtl cameo

Matt, I also remember there was some word you repeated allot.. editing can fix allot of it but yea maybe if there is a topic you had good points on, collect your thoughts and say it a bit briefer.

Again, loving the show.. hope you take this on board as it's ment and use it whatever way you see fit to your vision of what the show should / could be.
