    i still think they are gonna get too much flak from the online once every 24h and likely causing some kind of barrier to prevent the reselling of games in its current state.
    Porting will be stupid easy since both the XBO and PS4 use AMD x86 APUs. Not only that, but we might see a slight rise in the usefullness of AMD architecture, since we know how much game devs love developing for consoles first before porting to PC.

    in theory yes but it actually happening is a whole different story likely.
    still even if they can uttilize an octo core clocked at 1,9Ghz power wise it still pales to overclocked sandy/ivy quad cores. (multi core support would be awesome though)

    Assuming the game developers are going to keep making games as they currently are, instead of shifting even more of the oomph toward GPU

    Basicly this. About a year ago i needed to overclock my CPU, now it seems i can even run the games on stockspeed again.

    im good either way :P
    two 780's and 3770k on 5,0Ghz won't be lacking any time soon. (with the exception of ubersampling in some cases)

    My monitor is dead, after 5 and a half years. Any recommendations, up to 150 euros?

    I have to agree here, I'm personally most excited about the new Wii U titles that are being released this year and next year. I will be getting a ps4 as well though.

    i just got a terrible idea to butcher my side panel.
    thinking of extending the 140mm sidefan to fit my 200mm megaflow cm fan. which i is doing nothing since my H100i got installed and move my 140mm above my 200mm front intake for additional cooling.
    or would it be better to make a box of 4 smaller fans on the side?

    What for to be honest? I don't see it making any difference.

    Also, I just tried custom bios on my 780. I was able to maintain stable 1202/7100MHz with 1.212V. Temps still didn't go past 77% and power was at around 70%. Even though I think the reported power percent was incorrect, as I am constantly hitting 104% on stock bios, it still feels too controlled when the card doesn't let me push it hotter (or maybe it just doesn't work past 1202MHz?). Makes me wonder if it's any use to water cool when I'm already limited way below throttling temperatures. Then again it'd be mostly aesthetics as I have currently no need to run the card past the stock boost.

    edit: I Just realized that the custom bios is set to default power target of 350W which explains the lower total percentage. Still doesn't change the fact that I'm below both the temperature and power limits but the card refuses to overclock higher. Need more voltage.

    because my cards are kinda running hot in my case. (also got the idea of making some kinda of a wind tunnel in my lower hdd cage so the hot air is being pushed more out of the back of the case aswell.)
    pretty k-boost doesn't work past 1200 either.
    could run all benches except valley stable on +-1242.

    What would you recommend as a monitor screen size for programming?

    I would recommend you to post in the Computer forum.
    And also, resolution matters more than physical screen size.

    Holy balls. That is some pen, and some skill needed to use it!

    I used fountain pens since starting school at age 5, all the way to age 10 before we moved countries along with cursive/calligraphy that was pretty much mandatory. Untidy writing was punishable! It was interesting after moving to NZ that almost nobody knew how to write in cursive (they called it "fancy writing") and every kid was allowed to write however they hell they felt like as long as it was vaguely legible. An even bigger shock when the fucking teacher said she couldn't read my writing because certain letters in cursive (notably r, f, s, j and many capitals, etc) are quite different to how they are written in freehand. /facepalm

    Obviously using fountains pens is messy business, ink blots all over the fingers everytime we refilled and god forbid any splash on our school uniform (lets just say mom wouldn't be very happy :P)...but they did have a certain charm to them.

    I don't think any of the low-grade pens I've used have any of the versatility or flexibility of that Namiki one though, argh makes me want to buy one and learn how to use it all over again just to get some ink fumes up my nose <3

    Well either I've got the worst luck in the world or some unbeknownst party is intentionally fucking with me, but my 3tb that I bought on Monday is now not working. Ironically it stopped working a few hours after I recovered my data from the other drives onto it.

    Not necessarily.

    If you have eyesight as bad as I do, trying to use a 1080p screen under 23" isn't fun.
