  1. Man this looks fantastic because I'm a student and I've been thinking of getting a projector for my room for the past couple of weeks as I often have a lot of people playing split screen games or watching movies etc but it's little fun on a monitor compared to what it could be. I've looked around for short throw projectors but anything decent is way out of my price range, the PF1000U looks absolutely perfect and so way wayy out of my price range. My room is too small for really any furniture movement and I can't ceiling mount in this rented flat so this competition and projector seems to be my only option considering my student budget - won't be able to afford anything like this until after university when I won't need it anywhere near as much without all the uni friends and hangouts.
  2. Alright thanks guys, In that case I guess I'll ad up the part cost based on what they all go used on eBay for. List the entire PC for the total for a week for or so and then if there is no luck I'll sell the parts individually.
  3. The PC started off with a single core athlon, some old HDD and 1 GB of RAM. I've been upgrading it part by part over many years. I generally just like speed / snappiness in Windows and do like to have lots of tabs and programs open and since I no longer play games I started thinking about selling my GPU, from there I realized that really the i5 Surface Pro 3 is powerful enough (might have to get the SP4 once it comes out for 16GB of RAM), with a NAS, USB Sound Card and the dock which will allow me to use my monitors etc it should replace my PC just fine. So the only thing that didn't really make sense was getting the 290X when I don't really play games, that was just because I do sometimes fire up a game for an hour or so and when I do I do like to run it maxed out, but as my game time gets lower and lower I can no longer really justify having that kind of a GPU for an hour a week.
  4. Not quickly, was thinking that too. Not sure how much more I'd get doing that instead of just selling it all together at once though. If anything
  5. The specs are: AMD FX 9370 16GB of 2333MHz DDR3 RAM MSI Non-Reference R9 290X Asus Crosshair V Formula Z Mobo Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD 2TB Seagate Barracuda 320GB Seagate Barracuda Asus Xonar D2X Sound Card Corsair RM 750 PSU Fractal Design Define R4 Windows Case 6 Noctua fans, (5 NF-F12's and some other airflow optimized one) White LED Strip at the top Arctic Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Genuine Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit Any ideas about how much I should sell this for? (On eBay or Gumtree for example)
  6. Hi, Is it possible to after recording a sound (say someone saying a single word). To play that sound using my MIDI keyboard? So that the sound is automatically pitched to the correct note I'm playing? Thanks in advance

  8. Yeah I guess no matter what the outcome of experiment 2 would be it would really just create more questions. Would be really interesting though.
  9. Yes, I thought about that, I guess the best way to make sure the information isn't there physically would be to cremate the body. As for the distance... I don't know, we weren't told about that, I guess it would have to be tested if the computer with the data can be taken away.
  10. 1. Well yes, the distance between the computer holding the information and the lab where the experiment was done would have to be big enough for any latency associated with checking if it's an interference pattern or not to be negligible, but they have done similar tests with quantum entanglement so I believe the equipment needed exists. 2. We weren't told about paper storage or any other forms apart from computers and people, but yes, a persons memory will be enough because they have erased the results from computers after the researchers saw them and there was no interference pattern (as if the electrons knew the information was still somewhere)
  11. Alright thanks for the link and info, We've been told, the measurement device is just some sort of an electron / charge detector as far as I know and yes they have done experiments to address your concerns, having the detector in place but switched off resulted in the electrons acting like waves so as if nothing was watching them, and having the detector switched on but not saving results anywhere also resulted in the electrons acting as waves, this is why this is all really strange, it's as if they know if the results exist anywhere.
  12. Hi, I'm currently doing Physics as one of my subjects at uni and was recently taught about the double slit experiment and then I watched this video - In class we were also told that they recently tried doing the experiment again where they had the detector at one of the slits saving the results to a computer but that's all, no one viewed them but even then because the results were stored somewhere the electrons were behaving like particles, but, as soon as the data was erased, a wave interference pattern appeared. So apparently as long as there is data stored anywhere on which slit the electrons went through they behave like particles, as soon as that data is erased from everywhere it is stored, an interference pattern appears. This got me thinking about 2 things: 1. Because of this could they not find out if "the information" about whether or not data about the experiment is stored anywhere travels faster than the speed of light? Just by recording the results about which slit the electrons went through on a computer, not looking at them and transporting the computer somewhere far away and then have someone delete the results at an agreed on time and if a wave pattern appears at exactly the same time the data is erased then the information transfer was instant, if not they could work out the speed that it happened at. 2. Could it be used to figure out if there is any sort of life after death? If the results were shown ONLY to someone who will die soon (someone very ill), and then they were deleted off the computer, that would make that person the only thing that holds the data. If once the person dies an interference pattern appears that would suggest that the information no longer exists anywhere. If however they stay behaving as particles, that would suggest that the information is still somewhere... with the person.
  13. Absolutely love my Nexus 6, If you liked it too and want stock android just go for it. You won't regret it.
  14. I know nothing about this but my guess would be that while a single cable from the power supply can handle all the current, the traces on the GPU PCB can't so that's why it's split.
  15. VA is another big one but I'd stick to IPS. I'd either go with that Acer one or with an updated version of the Korean I have - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Perfect-Pixel-Matte-QX2710-Evolution-II-DP-Multi-True10-10bit-2560x1440-Monitor-/161285516967?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item258d5daea7 £226 + Tax probably (20% = £45.20) for 1440p, Matte (There is a Glossy version if you prefer), and Perfect Pixel. Most of them, including mine also overclock a fair bit (mine does to 90Hz)
