    I was thinking the same thing, waiting to get the new series coming out, then my new job came around and my first check with commission made me do other wise. New video cards and case ftl

    I wound up purchasing a new keyboard today, the Logitech G510. It's nice to have that small LCD and some keys that I know won't be fucked with applications. Grave key is apparently frigging help support in SWTOR, which is the same key as what I use for mumble. (And it's not listed in keybinds menu! )

    Which keyboard did you have before? I would have suggested a sexy mechanical, personally.

    You think going LGA1155 IB over SB will be worth it? I sort of don't believe it will be. :|

    As long as my overclocked 2500K can still run circles around the best stock IB, I'll be fine, personally.

    Well.... you remember how my motherboard is more than likely faulty, yes? I'm thinking a brand new MoBo with IB might just be my best bet, if I'm able to afford it. Since they are putting out new chipsets+mobos right?

    Yeah, good thing you're joking. I'm thinking since the PC runs pretty flawlessly when most things are set to automatic, I'll pass most of this rig on to a real life friend who currently has my older parts. (E5200 dual [email protected], 6GB DDR2, old mobo, and old PNY 9800 GT)

    I have been of the opinion for a while that the i5, mainly the quad core, is the best bang for your buck processor on the market. Sometimes I wonder why people go for the i5 but it's usually because they splurge on higher end graphics cards.

    I have an interview coming up for full time hire and hopefully it means I land the boring mill apprenticeship I have applied for, cause that job pays well (starting rate is like 18-20/hr and goes upwards of 35 depending on your experience and time with the company). So yeah, that would mean I could build an insane rig in no time at all and still afford my cost of living

    I'd rather just engineer my own case rather then mod one. Odds are if I get where I want in the working world, I could engineer my own case from the ground up. That would be a ton of fun, take everything that is great about so many different cases and put them together.

    For sure, if I get the job I am splurging on some liquid cooling, a Cooler Master Cosmos II case and a bunch of other stuff

    Obviously no one uses it when Drunken just said he *wants* the features...

    oh I use my LCD screen and macro keys too.

    Why can't we have all of this and mechanical keys? =/

    a. I wanted the LCD monitor for specific tasks. Particularly to monitor things while I'm in full-screen applications that won't let me alt-tab to check those stats without most shit throttling down anyway.
    b. Some rather soft, red lights are appreciated here on my desk. I'm not a fan of bright and excessive LEDs, but I'm also not prone to sitting in the dark either, so the lights are only a soft 'touch'.
    c. I've missed having some frigging media buttons on my keyboard. It's really annoying when software decides to not let you tamper with media players or volume easily, and I don't like headphone volume sliders.
    d. And I wanted macro keys so I could set software like vent, mumble, etc, to use a command that is within reach and doesn't get fucked by the billion weird things games choose to assign to the keys I like to use. Skyrim was sane assigning console to it, but SWTOR opens a new ticket... what the f-?

    If you don't like those features that's fine, but that sort of snarky kind of response is a real buzzkill to any rep I've had for you.

    Well it's a darn good thing that the keyboard isn't for you then, right? Just because you wouldn't use the LCD, doesn't mean others don't. They have value to some, and that's why they buy it.

    I have a G11, and I love it. I use the macro keys. I wouldn't personally use the LCD, though I can see why some people would, so all the power to them.

    Bottom line - opinion and preference are just that, so don't insult them, and say "no one uses the LCD" because obviously tons of people do.

    BUT, we're all digressing here. This is about posting builds, with pictures, not arguing semantics about keyboards. Everyone needs to get back on topic. Consider this a final warning, if you must.

    Second time posting :P Upgraded my gpu, and some accessories

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
    i5-750 @ 2.67ghz (Upgraded the stock fan because I was oblivious to how shit they are, now have a CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 Evo..Dropped near full load temps by like ~25-30C)
    8GB (4X2gb) Ram (By Corsair) @ 1333MHz
    Gigabyte P55-UD3R
    MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC 1G
    1gb Samsung HD103SJ
    1 x 90mm fan my dad found at work screwed to the side of the case..plugged into a powerboard
    Razer Naga
    Razer Black Widow Ultimate
    Logitech G35

    Think that's about it. I want to upgrade.. but I don't really need to, everything works well in games and I'm most likely getting a laptop for uni soon.
