    Depression, anyone have help?

    I have depression, and I can certainly recommend a therapist. Having a therapist doesn't make you crazy, theyre actually super helpful. If you need it, they may prescribe meds such as an SSRI which helped me personally a ton. Not really much to say but its better to be open about the issue to your friends and family so they can help you rather than keeping everything to yourself.

    Deskop 9/10, You have 2 frickin xeons, ecc memory, and a beast graphics card, even if it is a bit outdated. Awesome system. My motherboard+apu recently died, so now I am stuck with: CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 830 @ 2.7GHz Mobo: Who the hell knows, its a generic dell motherboard RAM: 3x2GB Samsung RAM + 1x8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1866MHz GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7770 Storage: 500GB WD Blue drive, 1TB Seagate something or other drive, 1TB WD External usb 3.0 drive, and a 120GB Kingston SSD Case: Generic dell case, literally no case fan mounts so I hot glued 2 high velocity 80mm fans to the top and the sides (each fan is >200cfm) pwm controlled by an arduino becuase the motherboard has no pwm fan headers PSU: Corsair 430M Monitors: 1x Acer 1600x900 cheapo monitor, 3xHP L1750 (1280x1024) monitors I got for free from my school Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow tournament edition Mouse: Logitech g600 Sound system: Vintage NAD 3020 Preamp/Power amp for custom built stereo speakers (6.5inch midrange + 1inch silk dome tweeter) + Adcom GFA-545 power amp for my custom built subwoofer (12inch dual subwoofer in an enclosed box)

    Advice For Build For A Friend

    Go with one of the above parts lists for sure, but keep in mind that the peripherals can be more important than the computer itself; I'd rather play a game on low settings on a good monitor with a nice keyboard, good mouse, etc than be able to play crysis 3 on ultra but use a low resolution monitor and a crappy keyboard+mouse from the dollar store or whatever. SInce he is a former console gamer, you might want to offer a usb controller or adapter for his current controller. Also remember that since you built the computer, you'll probably have to fix it in the future, or at the very least do occasional maintenance in the case that he is not a techie. All of this being said, your build looks fine and so do all of the other builds posted here. As far as a mouse goes, most logitech mice are amazing, the g402 looks like a nice budget mouse. If you can fit it in your budget, you can usually get a razer mechanical keyboard for under $70. Cheers! Edit: For that cheap of a build, an i3 should be good if you want intel; it won't bottleneck most low end graphics cards and has better single threaded performance than the amd afaik.
  4. As of now, I wouldn't expect any damage to the cable. Try not to move it around too much though, because it could put too much stress on the cable. If you're really that concerned though, you may as well pick up a sata cable with a straight connector for a few bucks on amazon or something.

    FinalMouse Giveaway

    I'm broke, and currently using a 5 year old microsoft mouse. I'd love to give these new brands a try, rather than supporting peripheral behemoths like razer, however good their products may be. Cheers

    I'm thinking of building a PC but need help

    I'm not an expert on pc building so let someone else do that actual parts list but keep in mind that windows 7 will cost around $90 unless you have it already, and that you should look up benchmarks specific to the programs that you're using. I.e. don't necessarily use a cookie cutter build but customize it to your needs

    Any cheap CHEAP Capture card for dual PC setups?

    As far as i know, any pc capture card would work. You put the video output from the gaming pc into the capture card, then put the capture card usb or whatever cord into the streaming pc. You run the game on gaming pc, and run the streaming program on the streaming pc. The Elgato game capture card looks good, although if you really want it to be cheap then you may as well just stream directly from the gaming pc.

    External HDD finally gave up on life

    I really should rethink my setup... I'm using a WD Passport to store all of my documents and music on. I'm not sure why but it seemed more reliable than my internet hard drive that gets wiped every week when i install a new os.

    Network layout showoff

    It's not much, but my setup: Modem/Router (Attached to printer) --> Powerline --> Powerline --> Cisco E2500 Router (in my bedroom ) --> Ethernet Switch (salvaged) --> My pc, my htpc, my other pc, my laptop, raspberry pi, and my workbench

    How should I set up my network

    Go with powerline; it's way less hassle than running a cable through walls, and isn't much slower in my experience.

    case for under £60

    Definitely a +1 to the NZXT Source 210; it's my personal case, and very well built especially considering the price.

    What should I review next?

    Holy balls... as long as you're doing quadcopter reviews, you should try out the Estes Proto X. Its only a couple inches long, but has a ton of power for its size. Obviously no cameras or fpv, but its still fun as hell to fly just because of its size--you can safely fly indoors with no problem.
