    If you go into "Options" and enable split-touch controls, it removes the circle. Split-touch controls are a little different, though, and can take a second to get used to, but I prefer it to the default now. :)

    While this project is very unique, I think we can all agree that this topic is spiraling downward fast.

    These are all fantastic ideas. However, I would like to point you toward our MCX360: Suggestions section.

    I would simply move this topic there, but it contains more than one suggestion. If you want to just make a separate topic in the Suggestions section for each individual suggestion you have, that would be awesome!

    Also, is your case one of the slimline ones? Because that might explain why people are saying it's hard to replace the psu.



    Yeah, the case is a slimline. Here's a picture of the case:



    And here's a picture of the interior:



    And that's my main concern. I've read that the power supply can be rather tricky to replace in a slimline case. Also, if the motherboard is a non-standard part, is it possible to modify the case to make it fit? (i.e. Ghetto drilling space for it. XD)

    Quote from Christoi

    Sorry for not noticing this earlier, but your current power supply appears to be a TFX unit - it's a slightly different form factor, Your linked an SFX unit, but you'll need the TFX one instead. Everything else looks fine, though I would agree with XSSheep that the A8 may be worth considering for the performance increase (though given it's $30 more, it does require you to save up a bit more).


    Oh, thanks for catching that. I never would have noticed. :)
    Do you think that would fit in the slimline case easily?

    Alright, so I took all of your input and looked around on PCPartPicker for an APU, motherboard, DDR3 RAM, and a power supply.

    Now, I know that this computer seems very weak for someone who likes to play video games and animate, but I'm not going for some stellar build that will knock the socks off any game. I'm content with playing games on low to medium settings, just as long as they're enjoyable at that. With this and my $200 budget in mind, these are the parts I selected for the time being:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: AMD A6-6400K 3.9GHz Dual-Core Processor ($64.19 @ SuperBiiz)
    Motherboard: MSI A55M-E33 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard ($44.99 @ Microcenter)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($42.95 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: FSP Group 300W 80+ Certified Micro ATX Power Supply ($39.99 @ Mwave)
    Total: $192.12
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
    (Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-03-03 21:15 EST-0500)

    I decided to go with the dual core APU not just because it was cheaper, but I didn't feel I needed too intense of a processor, and I can upgrade it in the future if I so desire.

    I also plan on buying a decent graphics card in the future, after I've saved up a bit more of the moneys...

    So what do you guys think? Should this work out? (Keep in mind this is for casual animating, watching movies, and playing games at low to medium settings)

    You know, I was so focused on getting a dedicated graphics card that I completely forgot that APUs can handle most games. Heck, I play Skyrim on my laptop with an A8-3520M. If I did get an APU, mobo, etc. could I still install a dedicated card in the future if I wanted to?

    Edit: Also, after some Googling it would seem that replacing a psu in a Micro ATX case is rather difficult. Is this true? I feel like it shouldn't be that hard. :T

    just put a 750ti in there.


    Yeah, I can understand where you're coming from with that, but I'm adding these parts so they'll come in handy down the road. At the moment I've got 2 gigs of DDR2 RAM, and I really want to upgrade to a motherboard that supports DDR3 as DDR2 seems to be on its way out. If I had DDR3 already I'd just get a good gpu, but I'm thinking I'll swap the mobo, processor, graphics, and RAM so that I have parts I can easily upgrade in the future... If that makes any sense. XD

    Hey guys.So I received a computer from a relative who got it from work. So, naturally, it's not the speediest devil out there. It's alright, but I'm looking to upgrade some parts so I can play some games and animate while staying at a low budget of around $200.

    It's a Dell Vostro 220s. Here are the currently known specs:

    Processor: Intel Pentium E2220 Dual-Core 2.40Ghz

    Motherboard: Unkown. It uses DDR2 RAM, however, which I don't like too much. It's also got an LGA775 socket for the cpu.

    Video card: Intel integrated graphics.

    Harddrive: 160gb, 7200 rpm. Works great!

    Power supply: 250W

    Now, I'm looking to upgrade some parts to do medium levels of gaming, such as Skyrim on low settings. The processor, although a dual core, should work fine for most games. I'm thinking of replacing the motherboard with one that supports DDR3 RAM, and while I'm at it getting a processor that doesn't use the dying breed that is the LGA775 socket. Of course, I'll also upgrade the RAM to DDR3, and I plan on getting a new video card.

    These are the parts I was looking to get:
    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks
    CPU: AMD A6-6400K 3.9GHz Dual-Core Processor ($64.29 @ Amazon)
    Motherboard: MSI A55M-E33 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard ($44.99 @ Microcenter)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($37.99 @ Amazon)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GT 620 1GB Video Card ($49.99 @ Mwave)
    Total: $197.26(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)(Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-03-03 01:31 EST-0500)

    My main concern is whether the power supply would be an issue? The computer is in Micro-ATX form, so it would likely be difficult to swap the psu out.NOTE: I'm trying to keep the cost of upgrades to under $200, so that's why I'm not going for the high-end components.

    If anyone has any ideas for cheaper and/or better upgrades, please let me know!

    Thanks in advance! I appreciate any help you guys have to offer! :)

    Well, as the old proverb goes: "Different strokes for different folks."

    So no worries! Pocket Edition may not be everyone's cup of tea, but plenty of people do have fun with it, so I'm glad the developers created it. :)

    Actually, this isn't a bad idea. Take the game Little Big Planet, for example. In that game you're able to make your own levels, then release them for others to play. I think that could be formulated to work for Minecraft very well. Great idea! :)

    posted a message on Redstone alternatives is going to die
    Basically, as these other users have said, the addition of redstone will make it pretty simple to make basic contraptions. It'll give those who don't have the time/patience to learn redstone alternatives a chance to make redstone machines. However, redstone alternatives will still be around for those who wish to use them.

    Edit: Of course, there will probably be some blocks that get removed/changed in some way that eliminates their usefulness in alternative systems, but knowing this community someone will always find a way. :D
