  1. 10 key-less is generally my thing, its compact and I don't tend to use the number keys often enough to necessitate a full keyboard layout. The best of luck to everyone, thanks guys
  2. haha yeah it does suck getting computer components down here! thanks for your help I will have a look at these too
  3. ive had a quick look at some of there cases, but I will have another look and see what else they have got
  4. Quick (immediate) update! I have found a case which looks very nice, at least externally. I have not looked deeply into the specifications as of yet, but the case is made by a manufacturer that I have never heard of in my life, and does not seem to have any recognition on youtube (a bit skeptical to me). In any case (haha i'm hilarious), here is a link to the manufacturers website: http://www.cooltek.de/en/powered-by-jonsbo/umx-series/117/umx1?c=268
  5. Hello everyone! I am mostly sure that this is in the right category for the topic considering that it concerns cases, but if not please let me know as I've only posted here a few times. I am currently putting the finishing touches on a build list which i plan on building for myself in the coming months. I originally based all of my component choices on the mindset that they would be going into the Bitfenix Prodigy M. This is a very nice case in my opinion and I love the flexibility and look of it. However, after recently reviewing one of Linus' old videos on the Cubitek Mini Cube, I have fallen in love with the idea of a clean and elegant full aluminium case. After searching around, I was disappointed to find that there are not really many cases (at least that I can find) that meet my criteria. The Cubitek case would be perfect for me, except the limited internal cooling options are not on par for what I want in my build. So finally cutting around to my question(!), I am wondering if anybody knows of any really nice aluminium cases with a clean look, a Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboard compatibility, ample cooling, and preferably with the natural silver although black could also be okay. A miniature version of the old Mac Pro (I am not much for their software or price, but we all have to admit that apple have the aesthetic portion of computer building far above the rest) would be absolutely to die for if something similar could be found. The final hurdle is that I live in Australia so it needs to be somewhere that I can order from, as we tend to have vastly limited options compared to USA and Canada etc (the woes of an Australian computer builder...). So that is my question, apologies for the absolute wall of text! And I will appreciate any guidance or direction greatly Thanks!!
  6. I love it because Linus branded it as having 'girl next door' good looks. Its a great laptop though too

  8. Do you know how i would go about this, because i cant really seem to find that much information regarding the topic.
  9. thanks for all of your replies guys, i will consider them all and im sure that they will help me in the future
  10. Hello, First of all, i have absolutely no idea what section this thread should be in, so please excuse me if my judgment was incorrect. Me and a few friends (mainly me) are interested in computers and all that and want to start some sort of computer building business. Before you all start screaming at me that its impossible to make enough money to live off, i know. This is purely an on the side thing and is not in any way going to be a primary business, besides i still go to school anyways. So what I really would like to know is exactly how I should go about this. I have built several computers for friends and such before so it's not like i have no experience. I just want to know how to advertise and stuff so that i can attract attention. I know that a website would be a good idea, but that takes time so I would like some sort of other way in the mean time. Any advice would be appreciated. So i know that was pretty much just a huge ramble but I am just looking for advice, or if anybody has experience in this sort of thing. Thanks in advance
  11. hey, i really like your build. It really annoys me how much us Aussies get charged for PC parts though and there really isn't that many options either. Anyways keep up the work.
  12. oh really, well that changes everything. Ok cool then, i will get the 780. Btw, this is the link to the monitor, its from Taiwan but its got good reviews even from Logan and others so i am willing to take the risk. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-27-X-STAR-DP2710-LED-2560x1440-QHD-PLS-Panel-Monitor-DVI-D-Matte-Screen-/140956704526?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d1ac9f0e
  13. Hey, I am getting together a parts list for my new pc and i have encountered a problem. I am going with two 2560x1440 monitors as i wanted one for gaming and i didn't want my second one to be different (I don't have ocd...) and they are also fairly cheap. But the graphics card i was originally going to go with (the 780) doesnt have two dual link dvi ports which i need. Thus the question, what the hell can I do? I was thinking about dual 770's in SLI but that is pretty pricey and also SLI scalling is kind of touchy, though not nearly as bad as Crossfire. So anyways i have no idea what to do know and i was looking for some advice. Thanks
  14. nice build :) I am planning of doing a prodigy build of my own so this has given me a lot of inspiration and a lot to think about
