  1. Last Friday I said goodbye to one of my best friends. Some would say he's just a dog, he had zero fucks to give for those people. Sometimes he was Calvin, other times Mr. Man. Some would say it was unconditional love, I would argue from experience it wasn't. He could tell if I was upset, walked away if I was angry, came back and rewarded me for calming down. Calvin made me a better person, he was my teacher and role model. 13 years we traveled the country together, 13 years we jumped into things with a laugh and wagging tail. 13 years I would wake from a bad dream to find him there concerned, now I face those dreams on my own with the lessons he left behind to guide me. 

     

    Calvin was wise, Mr. Man had courage. He will live in my heart until it's final beat.

      So deeply sorry for your loss. :(

  2. Xeon is better. All mainstream consumer CPUs from Intel are failed Xeons. All of them. A 8700k, is a failed Xeon. That said you have to watch pricing, don't over pay for a Xeon or you lose the benefit.
  3. I could see it possibly happening if the CPU is a low clocked one, or the board only supports lower clocked RAM. Not really and issue with anything that new, more the LGA1366 stuff.
  4. 4690k takes a different socket. OP, go with the Xeon.
  5. Latest find, 550ti for 10 bucks US. Pic as I found it before cleaning. Card smelled like a bong, no joke.

    100$ Computer

    Pick yourself up a x5660 or x5675 as well. About 30 bucks and offers 6 cores and 12 threads.

    What is with consoles and linus

    PC isn't as "free" or "open" as it's said to be. Try gaming on a Linux distro, you can do it sure but your library is limited. PC is more open than console, but PC has a long way to go. Moves like only enthusiast priced cards allowing the use of "holy grail of gaming" features aren't helping the cause.

    980Ti TEMP CHECK

    Temps are fine, but the card is being held back by your CPU. Which Haswell do you have? See you have a 4790k, are you overclocked?
  11. We are gathered here today to say goodbye to a motherboard of games past. P5N-D had many lives, Lone Wanderer, Space marine, and many more. After hours on the table, it's clear those lives are now mass storage. 

     

    Goodbye P5N-D,

    Upgrading Our WORST Gaming Rigs

    *waves fists at Pyrii* (in a joking way) I have 2 w3540s and a x5660, really want a X58 custom board so I can overclock it, but if you find a board they're sometime more than modern brand new ones. It's crazy. Keep living the dream, hope that board of yours has many days left in it.

    Upgrading Our WORST Gaming Rigs

    What happened to the X58 motherboard, you're right some of use are dying to get our hands on one. Can you put it in the classifieds? Have a giveaway? Let us know it's finally in use? Pretty please with sugar on top.
  14. Finally found a 8800gt.

      Came in a 20 dollar PC I grabbed off Craigslist. Bought it for the case so the 8800 gt was a nice bonus. Works really well actually, OCs to 730MHz. No idea if that's good xD

    Is an AMD-based laptop worth choosing?

    I'm a complete Lenovo fanboy, because they balance the line between prioritizing cooling, and not being a giant brick you carry around. Honeslty I use my Y700 for work in a dual boot config (windows/Linux) and the 6700HQ has never been a limitation. Rarely is time a larger factor than just getting it done. For time I use desktops that completely curb stomp any laptop. So, I guess my advise is worry less about the Intel/AMD and more about what it is you want and will be happy with. Make sure you can live with it going everywhere you do, and less about earth shattering performance that's the land of desktops. Don't sacrifice all the performance, just enough. Also kill all the drives with nuclear fire before doing anything else (fresh instal of any and all OS) to purge it of bloat.
