    Biggest Fails

    Flashback too two years ago when I first built my pc. I had little to no clue as to what the hell I was doing; I mostly just hopped in some teamspeaks and was like "Hey look at this pcpartpicker link". After ordering all my parts came the time to build it finally. Everything goes fine. Mother board goes where it should, psu didn't explode, graphics card is in, cpu fits snug etc. Now I didn't have any sort of idea about how each part works. I figured anything short of a GTX Titan would be only kind of runnable. Now up in till then, the most graphically intensive game I could run was portal 2 on low graphics and even then only like 30fps and the laptop would still get unbearably hot. I remember thinking "Man lets see this 40fps in minecraft xDD :33" (Literally what I said in skype). I start it up and boom 140 fps. I was in shock and awe. Mind you, I have an R9 280, fairly powerful. Now at the time I didn't know this, I figured considering the price it would be basically shit so I wasn't surprised when I only got 20fps in the loading screen of Thief (Don't judge me it came free with some AMD thing). I figured that I couldn't run anything AAA or too intense. After about a month or two the topic of fps came up in teamspeak. (Mind you still in my minecraft days) A tech savvy friend of mine heard about my fps "issues" and got me to check my graphics card. I didn't have the 8pin all the way in. Mind. Fucking. Blown. So many fpses. 500 in minecraft? 120 in thief? Skyrim sets itself to Ultra? Life had only just begun. It only took me another 2 months to learn how to set up my SSD. Tl;dr: Graphics card wasn't plugged in. (And I'm still an idiot) I now realize that this is probably way too much text but I'm already too involved

  3. I mean to be fair it is a 12 core xeon and a powerful gpu. But I see your point...
  4. This is just in general, it's a continuing debate with my friend, he claims that a maxed out mac pro is the best computer in the world.
  5. Which is more powerfull, the Firepro W9000/D700 or the Quadro 6000?
  6. My current headset's mic has been acting up so I think it's time for a replacement. What's a decent headset for around $50?
  7. If you already have a great card like the 290x it's really not worth busting your balls for a card that barely outperforms it.

    What do you guys think about roccat's line of keyboards? Advantages over Corsair's K series?
  9. If it's between laptop and xbone just build a desktop. You can get better performance than both.
  10. 970 would probably be better than R9 290x in price to performance.
  11. How to enterprise grade PCIe SSDs compare to the speed of ramdisking?

Changed the psu Z97 mobo for overclocking
  13. Running legacy stuff? I dunno. Ps/2 format keyboards can prevent nkey rollover but that's all i can think of
  14. No, I meant 12. 3x4 modules. or 2x6 if you're even weirder
  15. 8 will be fine but if you want to be safe maybe go 12?
  16. When ever I have my speakers plugged into the outlet the subwoofer makes a continuous hum when not in use. Even if they aren't plugged into my computer it still goes off.
  17. Zerg Gold (I should be bronze/silver but 3 people just potato'd in the placements ) Microsoft Sidewinder x4, Some random logitech desktop mouse, some random mousepad with awesome padding
  18. I second this. A cheap after market cooler like the 212 will do fine.
  19. Are any of the fans spinning?
  20. For AMD cards you need the same chipset to crossfire and the R9 280 and the 7770 aren't the same. It probably won't make a difference when not folding but it could if you run multiple monitors or something.
