  1. I open up the GOML stream and the first thing I see is M2K losing to n0ne. It was a sad day for me. GOML is definitely hype though. Great to see that Lucky is continuing with the excellent tournament performances. If he ranks top 10 this year I won't be surprised. Westballz is doing great which is awesome, and Leffen isn't getting 7th place today. #FreeLeffen I'm going to make sure I watch as many tournaments I can this year, and I want to go to some over the summer. 2016 is going to be an awesome year.
  2. That 290 just went up $20 lol Also, 290 > 380X for days.
  3. Totally forgot about the 290! I'm gonna change my guide right now. Could somebody post some benchmark comparisons between the 380X and the 290? Also... Don't threads function as fully-functional individual CPU cores? I'm sure someone has more information about this.
  4. This is a build guide I have on PCPP. I have been designing and building computers for about 3 years now and I want to have you guys rate me.

Total: $448.62 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-11-11 10:26 EST-0500 So this is my current PC. It is a good PC. Due to my CPU only having two cores and no threads, and due to me not overclocking it, I can play TF2 maxed out at 50 fps at 1080p. That's horrible. I don't overclock because I know my PSU is gonna kill me for it. So, I decided to get an upgrade a few weeks ago. A friend of mine said he'd sell me an i5-3570k, an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4, and some extra RAM for $150! That's an offer that is pretty much impossible not to take up. With that, I will be buying a new PSU that won't explode and kill everything. My mom said she would buy me an 850 EVO SSD for Christmas, and a month or two after that I'm going to finish off the build... with an R9 390, an NZXT S340, and maybe a liquid cooler. I'm super excited, and I wanted to know what you guys think!

  6. i7 4790 | NH-L12 | Sapphire R9 290 OC Edition | 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport | Z97 Sabertooth Mk I | 2TB Seagate Barracuda + 128GB Plextor M5S | CX600 | GD09B | MSX I'm not trying to start a fight or something, just wanted to point this out. Also thanks for the RAM info, didn't know about that.
  7. I agree with what's up above, you might want to have 16GB of RAM. Having an SSD is really nice, and you can buy one for just the OS for like $50, which is totally worth it. If you have a bit more money, going the i7 route might be a good investment, depending on how much rendering and streaming you're planning on doing. While this doesn't necessarily have to be changed, if you're planning on streaming, I'm kind of wondering why you have a WiFi card if you really should be using ethernet. Just wondering.
  8. So, after finally amassing enough money to be able to comfortably afford my current PC sometime in May, I am already ready for a large upgrade. By upgrade, I mean buying an entirely new PC. While my Pentium G3258 and GTX 960 might seem totally fine when it comes to playing games like TF2, CS:GO, and The Binding of Isaac, it doesn't seem totally fine once you hop into the recording, rendering, and streaming spectrum. It was a hard PC to beat for under $500, but my new PC will be on a whole other level. Unfortunately, I am kind of lost with some choices I have for parts. Take a look at my current PC, and some options for my next PC: Current PC: Intel Pentium G3258 (Hyper 212 EVO) 2x4GB Ripjaws X @1600Mhz NVidia GeForce GTX 960 (EVGA SSC AXC 2.0 or something along those lines) NZXT Source 210 400W Bomb that I like to call a PSU Next PC (More Specific this Time) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8vDpTW Intel i7-4790k (Corsair H60) MSI Z79-S Krait Edition Motherboard RAM Conflict Below Video Card Conflict Below 1TB Caviar Blue (I already have) 250GB Samsung 850 EVO NZXT S340 Black Corsair CX750M (My friend has an extra, he said he will sell to me for $50, but I'll probably get him to drop the price even more.) So, after all that, you're probably wondering two things: 1. Why don't I have a motherboard, and 2. What is this Conflict stuff? I didn't list my motherboard because that info is completely trivial, plus I'm pretty sure I have the LTT Current PC Build thing already at the bottom of this post. The Conflict is this: RAM Conflict: I already have a 2x4GB kit of G.Skill Ripjaws X. I don't know if I should just buy another kit for 4x4GB of RAM, or I should buy a kit of 2x8GB so I can upgrade to 32GB later if I wanted to (Rendering lol). While the first option saves me a bit of money, the second option gives me the option of upgrading in the future. Video Card Conflict: I want to see your guys' opinions on whether I should buy a GTX 970, an R9 390, or another GTX 960 for SLI. I'm pretty sure the GTX 960 SLI idea sucks, but hey, one of you might even be using 2 960s and might be able to tell me how it's going for you! So if you are reading this, it would be a great help to reply to this thread. Thanks to all who do!
  9. Doesn't have to do with Personal Computers, but I had a friend who would say "Super fighting robot, Mega Man!" all the time, and he just realized after 3 years of singing it that Mega Man is a robot. Yeah, he didn't know Mega Man was a robot even though he had been singing that for three years all the freaking time.
  10. Unfortunately no pics, but my desk still has a giant thing to hold all of my nonexistent floppy drives. Also pieces of my desk are falling off. My PC is currently lying around in my kitchen because my motherboard's dead. I have my cheap $150 Chromebook hanging out where that used to be, and a GTX 960 and a stock Intel cooler hanging out next to my forever alone Wii-mote. Next to my generic Asus monitor I have a Sony CRT TV (more info on that in a bit). I have my Corsair K70 keyboard with some sick Cherry Red switches, some wrist rest I bought at Office Depo a few years ago, my old Earforce X12's that just broke, a very old webcam that I use as a mic, a Steelseries mouse pad, a Steelseries Sensei RAW, my 3DS XL, an old iPod, my Sennheiser HD449's, a journal to write stuff in, my Nintendo Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl (for Project M), Super Smash Bros. Melee, and a mess of Gamecube controllers. I feel like an old person even though I can't even drive yet.
