    Same here. I don't keep anything on my gaming PC that is critical (my resume and work related stuff is stored on the cloud). If one of my SSDs died, I'd order a new one and spend an afternoon installing games.

    I use the windows 7 backup thing that comes with the OS, and do weekly incremental back ups on to my 1.5TB Western Digital Elements usb 2 external. Takes about 45-60 min IIRC. Best part of it: it does it automatically with no need for me to do anything.

    Cloud Backups wont work for me, I have many RAW/JPG pictures from photography and with all those files + the edited versions etc. it is a huge amount of data to backup.

    @Marest
    I just saw the pictures from your "Project Red Piranha" and the clean build with all those hidden cables just looks outstanding esp. with the red/black theme.

    In comparison my own gaming PC was put together in 60 mins and all I did was to make sure everything is well connected. The inside is full of loose cables, oversized cooler for CPU/GPU for a silent system and nothing more. Maybe I should spend more buildtime for my next gaming pc.

    Cobian and Drive Bender, both on my server. I back up practically everything, including stuff like games from my main rig, which are easily replaceable, but only because I have the storage space. I'll start making sacrifices once I get a bit closer to running out, but as of now I'm at 1.17/5.91TB free. I also selectively use Crashplan for irreplaceable files (music, photos, books), as a secondary remote backup solution.

    I keep my documents, photos and other images like wallpapers, avatars and such on Dropbox.

    For backup I have everything going to a 3TB Time Capsule (Windows just mounts it as a network share and use the built in software, the macs use Time Machine).
    In the garage I have a drobo that stores media connected to an airport extreme. Every night the Time Capsule gets backed up to the drobo (using rsync). If a hard disk dies I can restore from the Time Capsule, if a house fire happens then my garage will probably survive because it's not attached to my house: I can restore from the backups there losing < 24 hours of data.

    Roughly ever 4-6 weeks I backup the drobo drives using one of those 'hard disk toaster' things (made by nextar, nexar, something like that). The total is 12 TB so I have to manually swap disks roughly once every 4 hours as the USB transfer speed is horribly slow. The backup disks are kept at my parents house about 50km out of town. If there's ever a regional disaster like a flood that destroys my neighborhood then I'll have a copy I can get from them. Most of the drobo data is media but it would take forever to redownload the music from itunes and I'm sure as hell not re-ripping the documentaries/movies: I don't even have most of the discs any more. Even if I could get it all from pirate websites it would still take a month or more to download several terabytes of data so it's worth the few hundred bucks to have a good quality back.

    For anything super important like work I keep a copy or two on USB disk and a copy stored on AWS S3 (50gb is only ~ $50/year)

    All the cool kids were posting their tablets, I figured I'd put up mine.


    I probably do more gaming on it than my PC because I'm able to carry it with me. It's also able to run wow via splashtop well enough to check the AH while I'm on the train which is cool. If anybody has an Olympus Pen (EP3), maybe you can explain why the hell mine is stuck taking 'square' pictures. I lent it to my brother and he brought it back "weird".

    Probably a Galant, from Ikea.

    It's this Galant setup specifically. Look at you Americans and your fancy low prices...that was $249 here in Ontario!

    Bokeh has it's uses but it needs to be done carefully for good effect, and that's an example of doing it horribly wrong :S

    @Sphexy thanks for posting pics! Your hardware is alright (the laptop is nice!) but the photography...has a long way to go. I see what you tried to do there, but don't let the effects get the better of you

    Hahah thanks, I'm not even close to being a photographer, I used an HD camcorder that takes pictures. The quality was subpar so I went for the focused blur look.

    Kinda a shame being that the only real benefit to a Sabertooth is how it looks in a clean build ><

    It's really not that hard to hide your wires... just make sure you run everything behind the MoBo tray and only push through the amount of wire needed then zip tie it all up and you have a beautiful build. I would've opted for black memory however.

    Technically you do get lower temps on the board but granted it's nothing that really matters.

    Either way you're right, besides all that there isn't much extra you get for the extra ~$50 you pay (Sushi for two equivalent lol)
