    madscientist56 got a reaction from Giggitygoebbels in Is the Surface RT 32GB worth it for $199   
    I'm on one right now and honestly unless you need to be able to run desktop apps (you have to jail break it if you want to so that) then its not really worth it.
    Its just not compatible with much tablet stuff I can't even put the mobile version of Google chrome on mine.

    madscientist56 got a reaction from bcb5000 in Corsair h100i or swiftech h220   
    get neither! 
    The cooler master glacier just came out! Its the same thing as the h220 but it has cooler master branding and it costs less! I read about it on toms hardware here are some links:

    madscientist56 reacted to lachyman in No $300 card Nvidia ?   
    If you want $300 NVidia, 760 Hawk is the way to go, the 760Ti should come with the 750s in October, but the 7970 is a better value, it has the performance of the 770.

    DDR4 will be in general better than DDR3 it will have lower latancy and be MUCH faster than DDR3 and it will boost apu preformance by a lot.

    madscientist56 got a reaction from Vitalius in Do you think Cherry mx blues are ok for gaming?   
    I would recommend Cherry MX Blue keys to anyone with their first mechanical keyboard. They are on the lighter side but it really depends on your personal prefrence.

    madscientist56 got a reaction from lioton2000 in hd 7970 ghz or msi gtx 760 hawk   
    The 7970 still beats the 770 but its its close. Honestly if I were you I would just wait until the 9000 series comes out unless you need to buy right now.
    Also you should check out gpuboss.com Its what I used to compare the 7970 and 770. I rely on them to compare lots cards.

    madscientist56 reacted to iAsuno in Why does AMD & Nvidia Make Reference Cards   
    please use the edit function.
    1. custom PCBs can affect the cooling and performance of a card. they design it for better power management and other things that most people don't know (i don't either)
    2. they use the exact same chip. the partners buy these GPUs from AMD or NVIDIA and then they go and do whatever they want as long as AMD and NVIDIA allows them to.

    madscientist56 reacted to marto in Cheapest case with good cable management ?   
    Form factor? How cheap is cheap? What's going into the build etc? It's hard to make a recommendation based off no information.
    I would recommend a NZXT source 210 as a low cost, one size fits all type of case though, It has a clean aesthetic which I like and if it were a tiny bit more feature rich in terms of removable HDD cages and perhaps a tiny bit more cable management room it would be perfect

    Check ebay craigslist etc and see what you can get second hand. Cases don't wear out and any damage is easy to spot on them.
