    100,000 members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

    For those of you, that's ISIS.

    2- I own a 960 and let me just say, it won't push 2 monitors. It plays most games at reasonable framerates (The Witcher 3 at 30 FPS for an example) but it's just not powerful enough for two monitors.


    Are your monitors 1080p or 1440p? Because I was planning on getting a 960 for my two 1080p monitors.

    Which can actually be solved slightly with new earpads, and maybe some tissue paper to increase side between the driver and your ear.

    Okay, I'll look into it.

    Superluxx HD 668b's.



    Whack some velour pads on them for under $20 and you have got yourself a $160 for like, $50

    They're good, but they don't have a deep bass extension like I would prefer. If you select the headphone type (Superluxx HD 668Bs), it shows a dive at around 90 Hz.

    I own the Sennheiser HD 598 open back headphones. I enjoy them quite a bit. They are about $150. You should check them out.

    Those were also something I was thinking about, but the frequency response isn't that much different from the HD 558s and I think the colour scheme is ugly as hell. Unless you can find a black or dark model, those are a no.

    I don't know, but I'd like an antivirus that prevents you from posting more useless questions and unhelpful information on this forum.

    Don't do a laptop. If you need it for traveling, build a small form factor PC. Most laptops are complete crap.



    I'm assuming you need a keyboard, mouse, and monitor along with the PC?

    posted a message on Do I have enough wattage to overclock?
    You've got tons of room to work with. 620W is actually a bit unnecessary for a 270 and a 4150, unless of course you were getting it in case of later upgrades.

    posted a message on Open-Back Headphones for $150 or so
    I've never really owned a decent set of headphones, and I would much rather prefer open-back for the significantly better sound stage. I was looking between the Audio Technica ATH-AD900Xs, Sennheiser HD 558s, AKG K612 Pros, and Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pros (preferably 32 Ω so I don't have to fork money in for an amp). Now, if I go with DT 990 (250 Ω) or the K612s, then I'll have to go with more money for an amp like a Fiio E10.



    I'll be using the headphones for electronic music production and listening. I'll maybe watch a movie with them every now and again.



    I'd definately prefer for there to be a bit of a boost in the bass, which is something that the ATH-AD900Xs and HD 558s lack a little bit (at least deep bass). I don't want a massive boost so that it drowns out everything.



    I already know if anyone responds, someone is going to answer with "why don't you get Audio Technica ATH-M50s," and to that I would say that they are good headphones, but they're not open-back, which is something I'd definitely prefer.

    Math, this is a prank-war, not a "Kill the enemy" war. The only kind of burning that can be done is putting Habaneros in there bananas.

    Envy, be careful. Don't think you wanna get caught in the cross fire of this.

    Well then I burn 50% of the vegetation on the island without killing anyone, assuming that it is a decent-sized island. How's that?

    posted a message on Would this run Minecraft?
    Quote from Pi_Lover22»

    i dont know much about computers. thats a new one. IM A FREAKING COMPUTER SCIENTIST!!!
    keep in mind that even though 1.7 gigahertz isnt that fast, its quad core, so it ends up being 1.7*4=6.8 gigahertz, which is more efficient because its split between cores. it would definitely cut it for "most games", especially minecraft, which is a very basic game in terms of cpu consumption.
    the computer you suggested, the Y40, is only 1.2 gigahertz faster, but that isnt much better because 6.8 is already quite fast. there comes a point when difference in performance is almost unnoticeable, and id say thats pretty close.

    about the graphics processor: i cant imagine another game where graphics would be less important than in minecraft. all the blocks are 16x16! if you are really into graphics and want high quality graphics processor, and the game you want good graphics in isnt minecraft, get a different computer.


    I have a computer that runs a Pentium B960 Dual-Core, 2.2 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000, a 1 TB hard drive, and a 64-bit operating system. Yes, it is a laptop. I'd like you to guess the average FPS I can expect from running Minecraft.

    The off-topic forum as a whole is actually decent.

    Here's a quick tip for playing Minecraft: DO NOT READ THE CHAT. If you do, you will immediately get stage 4 eye cancer. Here's a quick list of the messages in the chat that pop up:


    OMG SKYDOESMINECRAFT IS ON

    And these are how I personally see it. These are opinions although some of the messages may be considered common by multiple people. These are not to offend anyone.
