    Out of curiosity: What sites do you guys use for component news? I know about the well known ones like www.anandtech.com, www.tomshardware.com, www.pcmag.com, www.techspot.com and www.overclock3d.net; and even some lesser known ones like www.techradar.com, www.geek.com and www.arstechnica.com.

    So, do you guys know of any others?

    Edit: Forgot about www.pcworld.com

    Also I found this little treat by Razer...a usually hated company when they try to get "innovative" and spit out pieces of gimmicky overpriced garbage, but if there's one thing they can damn well is is turning that notion into IRONY!

    I give you the Razer Snake Eyes:

    looks cool, but google's are real and look better:

    it is nice to see razer getting out of the peripheral market, hopefully they will get away from their poorer QA standards with the Blade and their tablet

    im not sure about the blade though, for $2800 you could probably get a pretty good macbook and put windows on it

    To a point.

    Select MacBook Pro, 17", then check out the options to upgrade. ;p

    http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MD311LL/A?

    So already at a whopping $2,500, let's see here....

    2.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
    2.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 [Add $250.00]
    4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x2GB
    8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB [Add $200.00]
    *BARFS* Can't believe they still ask that much for RAM.

    750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
    750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm [Add $50.00]
    128GB Solid State Drive [Add $100.00]
    256GB Solid State Drive [Add $500.00]
    512GB Solid State Drive [Add $1,100.00]
    MacBook Pro 17-inch Hi-Res Glossy Widescreen Display
    MacBook Pro 17-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display [Add $50.00]
    So you can get perhaps a couple upgrades, depending on which you choose... =S

    Or you can build a 'Lite' version of Cyanotical's rig. hehe

    Sometimes I have a hard time figuring out what you are actually allowed to talk about in all these forum threads....

    But I mostly follow, not so much the rumours and stuff about upcoming stuff, but more like when the stores will actually have stuff for sale! Not that I don't lurk around for new stuff, but it seems more efficient to just figure out when it will actually be out, rather than guesstimating all the time

    Cyanotical is wrong on that, this thread was specifically created for the purpose of rebelling against the Computer forum and it's hosh-posh rules about staying on topic.

    This thread is a chat thread in the Fun Stuff forum (which has it's own rules, but they're very generous). I.e. you can talk/ask/chat about whatever the fuck you want to (random swearing included!) and not get told-off about it by those angry cigar-chomping mods.

    What he was hinting at however, is that if you had any genuine computer-related questions then you would be much better taken care of in the actual Computer forum (since everyone who reads this thread reads that forum too + many others).

    i wasn't hinting anything

    what i was posting, was a prevention to the inevitable "you're good with computers? can you fix mine?" posts, that way we dont end up with a reverse of the problem that sourced this thread, which was OT discussion in the Post your gaming setup thread, instead we will have computer help related questions interfering with the OT discussion (hows that for irony)

    speaking of the Post your gaming setup, does anyone else get really annoyed when someone just posts a parts list with no pics?

    Haven't so much lately done the following, but typically I would say "PICS PICS!!!"

    Come on Cyanotical, your memory disappear?

    So the billion and a half Ivy Bridge threads are getting out of hand imo....

    I agree, we need a megathread similar to what we had/have for Kepler.

    A mod dares show his face!

    Quick Marest! To the rescue! We requires an Ivy Bridge megathread! Can you merge the 23,094,958,128 already existing Ivy Bridge threads into one super special one? :P

    <3 you, I don't think you're mean, Xuvial is just off his rocker and a jerrrk!

    and i posted this, but i guess it didn't make it when the forum went RO:

    its not that my memory is gone, its that the text posts keep showing up after your "PICS PICS!!!"

    and get ready for more IB posts, there are still a bunch of people who are gonna come in and ask which cpu?, whether or not they should upgrade?, and when is SB gonna get discounted?

    sometimes i get really annoyed because if i can find the answer in 5 seconds on Google, why can't the OP?

    Yeah I saw this post in my email. I think people just don't think Google will answer their EXACT question, because you know, we're all *SO* unique...

    Just wondering how needed this whole junction point thing is, because I really can't make it work
    Also stuff like drivers and such do I have to place them on the SSD or can I place them on a storage drive?
    Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

    They're only needed if your OS is having a problem finding the items, for example, when I had Steam on my SSD but some of my games on my HDD, I had to create junctions for them in the SteamApps folder.

    Honestly though, like Cyanotical said, I think it's time to make a thread in the Computer Forum.

  19. #219
    Threads are gone in a sec and they are offent "lost" in all the other threads or people don't seem to bother. But I've got all I need to know I guess.
