Re: Next Gen Consoles

Sticking to a PC, maybe in the future a PS4, probably for Sony exclusive games, but definitely not getting it when is launches.

Re: Thinking of a new desktop

They are the basically the same fan, just cheaped out, they call them SP120L for some reason. I've put it at quiet which runs about 1000 rpm so it's less noisy. I don't usually see temps go higher than 60 when I'm playing a game at stock CPU frequency. The highest I've got was with Prime95 which was...

Re: Thinking of a new desktop

Thanks Mullet! That wallpaper looks great! The only thing I don't like with the Corsair H100i is the stock fans that they come with, they are noisy when you set them at Balanced mode. Even in quiet mode they are a bit noisy. Probably will replace the stock fans with Noctua fans, whenever they decide...

Re: Thinking of a new desktop

yeah I looked at the shipping it's about 50$, I live in Ottawa, there are not a lot of places to buy computer parts where I live, there's like Canada Computers and that is about it. I'll ask around to see if there are any other stores in the region. Thanks Stephen

Re: Thinking of a new desktop

Unfortunately I live in Canada and there are no microcenters :cry: Everything is just more expensive here. I usually try to do price matching with some online retailers. I will do a lot of shopping around the next few weeks before ordering and I`m sure bundle deals will get better with for the Haswe...

Re: Thinking of a new desktop

I can't reuse any parts from a current desktop setup, I have been using a laptop for the past 10 years for school.

I'm probably gonna cut the ram from 16 to 8 GB saving 60$ and the PSU from 650W to 550W saving an additional 30$

I'm thinking of building a PC mostly for gaming no video editing or computational work . Budget is around 1500$. Here are the parts I'm thinking of purchasing in July. I also need a monitor, haven't decided on one yet, but I'm thinking just a TN panel with 1080p (19-20 inches). Budget for the monito...

Re: I'm bummed...

A few years back when I was working in my old lab, we needed to send a large piece of scientific equipment back to the manufacturer for a repair, we sent it by UPS because the company paid for shipping. We were tracking the shipment back but it never registered on their computer systems. We assumed ...

Re: Badwater Revival?

HLStatsX Community Edition (CE) is free, they recently changed their website to a repo... I agree with a few points discussed previously, I would love to have the ATG server up and running again, the only thing is that I have less time to play now, just like Matt said, if I get an invite at 10:30 ES...

Re: Badwater Revival?

I'm in for a Badwater Revival. If we get a 24 man server, I'm pretty sure I can put some money towards the server every few months

Valve Console

I guess Valve wants to get in the market for consoles or smart TV boxes.
