  1. So let me set the stage for this review. As many people who knew me when I was a regular on the forums over 2 years ago, I personally used to game on a old Microsoft mouse that looked just like one of these archaic things you find on your grandmothers PC. Now I didn't use it because I couldn't afford anything better, at the time I had 2 R9 290X's and just didn't see any gain to replace something that worked great and I was familiar with. As time went on I stopped gaming and sold off most of my performance hardware and kept my PC relatively basic and bare bones. I haven't actually used it within the last half a year since I can accomplish everything I need on my phone. Now I moved out a month ago and when packing up my PC realized one of my little siblings had taken my beloved mouse, now 1 month later and starting school and having an assignment I need to work on this weekend. I have finally been forced to break out Old Reliable and that means I was tasked with finding a replacement for my beloved ancient mouse. I made a simple trip to my local Memory Express and examining the selection was disappointed with what the cheaper options had in regards to size for my Goliath sized hands. I also don't appreciate the general look and feel of normal gaming mice with their jagged angles and flashing lights so I wasn't left with many choices. The G602 caught my eye with its sleek styling, versatility and I recalled hearing it was a great mouse for those with large hands but the 119$ price tag deterred me initially. I decided to quickly check PC parts picker and happily discovered the G602 on amazon for just over 66$ and using MemX's Uber Price beat guarantee happily purchased one for 60$. Using it has truly changed my opinion of what some "gaming" mice have to offer. I've already fallen in love with the adjustable DPI and programmed my own macro keys for the 6 perfectly placed side buttons. This mouse is perfection for those with large hands who want a versatile yet elegant solution that is a cut above your standard office/school mouse. It has been such a pleasure to switch to something like this that I personally felt the need to share it after not posting on the forums for over 2 years.

  3. For all my Calgary Peeps out there, I am getting rid of all my PC parts and such, here is a link to my Kijiji, you all are great so enjoy heavy discounts because I loved my time here on the forum, hit me up if you want anything.

    Also if any of you agree to build a sleeper PC in the pink case and make a build thread about it I will give it to you for free and 10$ to get you started, because I want to see it happen.

      Not everything is posted yet, I will be adding to it over the next few days, I will make updates here so you guys know when the new stuff comes.

  4. So decided to spontaneously upgrade my phone yesterday and got a Nexus 6P for 340$ on Kijiji, then decided that even though my Nexus 6 has 2 cracks, won't take screenshots until the fourth or fifth try, and can't be used while on a call, it still works and really doesn't need to be replaced, so I sold my new Nexus 6P today 30 hours after buying it for 440$ making a 100$ profit.

      Never a crack or scratch again

       

      (although that one is for the nexus 5, there is probably also a nexus 6P version)

  5. It's the same motherboard you would need for the 6500k
  6. So it's been half a year since I stopped gaming, holy crap it was worth it.

      I'm a casual gamer, personally a lot of it is just to learn how to edit and live stream

  7. That random moment when you realise that in the future your kids will look at a VHS player the same way you look at a old record player.

      Hey you never know when you want to watch a original Disney classic in all its VHS glory.

  8. It's not good, but it works
  9. Bro I have bought a fair share of used motherboards, a lot of the time they have little hidden quirks the previous owner never talks about.
  10. Hey wanna see how to shut down a fanboy who's trying to prove you wrong for something you said over half a year ago.

     

    Comment and I will add you to the "interesting exchange" we had.

      Well that doesn't sound like trouble at all.

  11. 99.9% of the time it's a problem with your motherboard, maybe the ram, but most likely a board.
  12. Basically my Nexus 6 with a better camera, expandable storage, little better battery, a little bit beefier at taking bumps and bangs, and a inferred camera like that concept by Catipilar. Edit: Oh and waterproof to the point of being able to survive summered in a 55 gallon drum oh used engine oil until it can be emptied fully and retrieved.
