    posted a message on Is 4gb of ram enough for bf3?
    Quote from brett122798

    My scale:

    1 GB - You're dead.
    2 GB - You're going to die.
    4 GB - It'll get you through life.
    6 GB - You can handle a lot of things.
    8 GB - Enough for about anything.
    10 GB+ - Okay, that's just overkill unless you do some intense stuff.

    I'm at 6 GB and I'm doing good with it. 4 GB would just be a little bit low for me. I just broke the record today of using the most RAM I've ever used. And that is: 5.1 GB RAM.

    Awkward moment when I have 24GB...

    posted a message on I feel like giving back so a little competition is in order
    So I know that I haven't been around in a while but I thought hey, today might be the time to give a little something back. No its not a free steam game, or origin but its something I believe is far nicer. A demonoid.me invite. For those of you that don't know what demonoid is, I'd click here.

    Competition details:
    Its quite simple and stolen from OCN. Make a fan in a box. The fan has to be working and can be as simple and complex as you want. I have one that I made from OCN as an example.

    You will enter by PMing me with all the pictures you wish to upload and the subject line: Fan in a box. I will post all of them and I may open a poll to see what the community says which is the best. Entry deadline is a week from today. I will decide who wins 2 to 4 days after that. Thanks everyone and have fun!

    A little hint, just follow said rules and let your imagination run wild. Now no pictures of your tower, etc. all will be immediately ignored. Serious entries only.

    I have a power sequencer in the rack now but the bottom rackmount is a Behringer Eurorack pro, top is a Behringer Ultra-Curve pro


    Stereo setup, 2 18inch subs. These things are POWERFUL. About 1/4 of the way up they make shotgun blasts sound like real life.

    What to Avoid:

    Laptops (for gaming):

    While there are laptops that exist that can play games pretty well you generally want to avoid them due to their cost/awkward size/battery life.

    Used parts:
    Used parts typically come with 0 warranty, replacements, or refunds. So avoid at all costs or unless sold from an approved retailer that has them. (IE: Newegg, Microcenter, etc.). Now some places have good used/refurbished products for example Woot.com. I have purchased 2 keyboard (Razer Lycosa) and a mouse (Razer Tron edition) and all items work perfectly. Now it really comes down to if you’re willing to take the risk.

    The “to-good-to-be-true” deals:
    You may be browsing google and come across a 128 GB SSD for $60 dollars and buy it. Now if the site has good ratings you should be fine but that no name site selling it may not always be the best purchase. You may think, “Wow! I saved 60 bucks!” but in the long run you may end up spending tons of time on the phone trying to get a replacement to no avail and essentially thrown $60 down the drain.

    Pre-builts:
    While there are some really great deals as far as prebuilts go, its very unlikely and you never truly know what is in your case. While it may seem like a good deal you may end up with a huge pain when you find you can’t push a game or that you need a better GPU and thus your PSU can’t power it. Some good tips to avoid being ripped off when purchasing a prebuilt:
    • Look other places: Find other places where you can buy/customize a similar or the exact same model
    • Compare it to the cost of building it yourself: Look at the parts you’re getting. Can you build it for cheaper? (More often than not yes, yes you can.)
    • What are your reasons behind buying? Is it because you are to afraid to do it yourself or because you don’t have the know how? Both of these can be fixed by following simple guides found on the internet.
    That guy selling on a forum:
    A few forums actually have marketplaces in which you can buy parts. Often full rigs. While I wouldn’t recommend it, it is a great way to get some cheaper peripherals or even a few extra tidbits. But in most cases avoid it, it may seem great but it is often not the best idea to do. You have no real protection. Use eBay, and if you must, use paypal and only sell/buy from someone with a verified PayPal account.

    I would put it on your desk. It will collect less dust. You could even buy a sidetable for it like I have.

    posted a message on Is this a good pair/deal?
    Quote from Gringo_Starr

    Those features aren't in the least bit "epic" I'm afraid. For a start (and this is giving me deja-vu) the ethernet port's supported speed doesn't affect your internet speed (gigabit is standard anyway). Secondly, any board with 4 DIMM slots supports that much memory, and it's useless anyway - you don't need more than 8GB (and you aren't likely to be able to afford 64GB anyway).

    Finally, the number of cores are somewhat meaninless in relation to performance - the dual-core i3 will out-perform that CPU.

    EDIT: This and this (or some similar board) would perform much better.

    ^^. 100% correct

    Besides, the motherboard has epic features to it.

    64 GB max RAM
    Gigabit internet adapter (I have 18 MBPS now, thanks to at&t uverse :) )
    6 SATA ports


    And the CPU has four cores!

    CPU's have 8+. By the time you will ever need 64 GB of RAM that already outdated CPU will be that much more out of date. Trust me an i3 makes more sense.
