Steam Hardware Survey
So how does this work? I keep getting prompted for it on my crappy laptop that has a 6400+ APU with an onboard R3 GPU and if I close down Steam and open it again it keeps asking me for the survey.

However, whenever I log into my gaming PC (i7 4790k, 295X2, 16GB RAM, etc) I never get asked to take the survey. So Steam will give it the whole "you PC gamers dont even play 1080p" and this is why. I game at 1440p with 2 monitors and want my hardware survey to reflect that!

Can you force the survey. I went to Help > System Information but itr doesn't seem to send the info.

They ask at random, you can't prompt it.

Don't worry, they ask enough people to get the general idea of what people have. Take a look: http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey

is it based on your comp specs?

Yeah. I hate the fact that the two crap PC's that I hardly ever use always ask me and the monster gaming rig never gets the prompt!
