    Thats not even making music, all your doing is grabbing samples and making a song which is hardly impressive. If you are serious about making music, try FL Studios or Cubase and learn how to make sounds with the Plugins provided. You will also need some good headphones/speakers and a good audio interface. Making electronic music isnt a very easy thing and isnt for everyone.

    ..................... What in the hell are you even talking about?
    1. FPS higher than your refresh rate makes no difference, because the extra frames are not even displayed on your screen. Because of this, you will not see a difference between 60FPS, or 100,000,000FPS, because the extra frames simply aren't there, they are nonexistant, anything you are seeing is a placebo effect.
    2. FPS has no effect on jump distance AT ALL or smoother gameplay past 60FPS. Just because it is a form of the quake engine does not mean it behaves like Quake 3. Quite the opposite, in fact.
    3. Maxing your FPS in a game like COD where there is no tactical skill involved makes no sense.

    1. That is true
    2. If you have played COD and researched about the effects of FPS on the game, you would know there is an effect on jump distance. (Source is here: http://www.codjumper.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=12464)
    3. Obviously you have not played propper team based match on COD because it does involve ALOT of skill. (Not as much as CS though)

    In COD its good to have a higher FPS than 125 due to it running on the Quake engine. Higher FPS in COD means higher jump distance and smoother gameplay. Most playersplay at low settings to get max FPS.

    posted a message on Shure SRH440 Review
    So for about a month now i've had the SRH440's, They are a very good pair of headphones for a very low price of $100.
    The setup im using at the moment is a Asus Xonar DG in my computer.
    PS. I'm no audiophile or expert with headphones so if i do say something wrong, let me know :D

    Sound
    The low, mids and highs on the SRH440 are great and don't drown out each other.
    Lows:The bass is a bit lacking sometimes but i think is great since it has a very clear and crisp bass. 8/10
    Mids: I think the mids are pretty much what you would expect from any decent pair of headphones, nice and clear. 9/10
    Highs: I think this is where the SRH440's really shine. When you hear vocals they are so clear and clean. Also when you hear synths in EDM they are also nice and clear. 9/10.
    Personlly for Hardstyle and other Hard Dance genres theses sound great. The kicks sound so nice and crunchy but also still have the bass as you would expect from a kick. These do sound kinda bad though with Nu-Style kicks with them sounding like dongs half the time due to them having hardly any sub-bass. You can really pick out each sound individually with these headphones.

    Build Quality
    The build quality on these are great, they are made out of a hard dense plastic with a nice hard but comftable headband

    Comfort
    This is where the SRH440 falls. The pads on the ear cups are slightly uncomftable but after a while of using them, you get used to it. My ears are pressed right against the cloth on the ear pads ontothe actual ear cups themselves and can get a bit sore after around 5 hours of use.

    Sound Card vs On Board Audio.
    If you do buy a pair of these i would highly advise you to buy a sound card as these require some decent power to sound great or they will sound muddy and distorted through On Board Audio.

    Gaming
    Personally i think these are good for gaming, other people might say otherwise but i think theses are good enough.

    Songs Used
    Headhunterz vs. Abject - Scantraxx Rootz (Hardstyle)


    DJ Predator & Art of Fighters - The Experiment (Hardcore)


    Ephixa - Song of Storm Dubstep Remix


    Ephixa - Fall Silently Dubstyle Remix


    Frontliner - Discorecord (Hardstyle)

    I think if your going to play Arma 3, id reccomend atleast a quad core. Arma 2 right now can rape my 2500k when im playing multiplayer.

    TB are trash. Low quality and average audio. What's your budget?

    I agree with that 100% and most gaming headphones are trash, your better off getting a good pair of headphones and a mic.

    Well if you want a good experience with music but not so much with the gaming side i'd recommend the Shure SRH440 and just get a mic if you need one but you would need a sound card to get the best sound out of them. But if not i wouldnt know :)

    That PSU is way underpowered. Get a 550Watt (OCZ or Antec). Switch the hard drive out for a Seagate Barracude 500 GB. Drop the RAM down to 1333 Mhz. Also, the CPU cooler is unnecesary if you're not overclocking (Which you're not, because it's a locked CPU) so you can either get a 2500k instead or just remove the cooler, as the CPU comes with one.

    Pretty much what he said. Anything under 500 is just too low for this type of rig.

    Its Basicly Gonna Be The Family PC (except mine) My Brother Will Be Playing Minecraft. My Dad will jsut be browsing internet downloading stuff and emailing.

    If your only going to be doing that, that build is way too expensive and also overkill for what your wanting to do. Wait for someone who knows their way around computers bit more than i do and they should help ya with a build :P

    Power Supply is overkill, at most get a 550 watt psu because your computer isnt really a power hog.

    Could my computer be able to run Battlefield 3 on Ultra ?
    CPU: AMD Sempron 1.0 GHZ
    GPU: Nvidia FX 5500 256 AGP
    RAM: 256mb

    My Friends rig has Crossfire 7970 and a 3960x and it looks like mine with all the fancy lights and stuff, so i guess my computer could probably max BF3 at around High or Max ?
