  1. I guess there's no building anything cheaper.
  2. Any suggestions for an extremely basic system? The system will be used as a point of sales/check out system for a small business. This store has an existing dell inspiron laptop and it works amazingly, especially with the touchscreen. However, this is a total waste of resources... required: cheaper than a responsive laptop wireless adapter touch screen monitor ssd (32gb is fine) as small as possible
  3. A 'Gucci 1911' is one that has a fancy finish and expensive engraving all over it. It has nothing functional whatsoever. That's where we can agree, but you are implying that all mid sized sedans are exactly the same. You seem pretty set on this idea that 1911's are all 100% the same and they are just 'marketed and priced differently'. That's bullshit man. There are massive differences between a $2,300 Ed Brown Alpha Elite, a $1,200 Springfield TRP, a $650 Mil-spec and a $380 ATI Firepower. Just because something cost almost 4 times as much, doesn't mean it is 4 times better. Obviously. But they exist for a reason and they are better, more reliable, more precise, more enjoyable and more desirable. There are huge differences in mass produced 1911's and quality 1911's. You can not deny that. The triggers, reliability, grips, checkering, safeties, sights, parts, extractors, materials, production methods, tolerances, precision, finishes, weight and all kinds of things make all 1911's different. Just because they are all the exact same color in the exact same size shooting the exact same round does not mean they are equal. You are going to need a better argument than "oh I heard something about reliability" or "oh you can change out a barrel". You can't build these guns for less than what they cost, let alone make one as precise, at all..
  4. Yeah this is false lmao Is a $20k Toyota Camry the exact same as a $120k BMW M5 too?
  5. Seems like everyone really likes the Pro. They used to be very, very difficult to get and on 1-2 year waiting lists. Not so much anymore, there are almost two dozen FBI HRT 1911's for sale online.
  6. The motivation is for this to be the last 1911 I ever buy with an intent to pass it down several generations. CCW and home defense is already sorted. The use case will be range shooting and unofficial competition. I really already know what I want, but I love to bounce things off the PC community. Y'all're pretty diverse in thought and highly intelligent consumers.
  7. I didn't realize how popular those guns were. My dad caries a Springfield XDs in .45 ACP
  8. I guess I'm just spoiled or addicted. I had a Royal II that I picked up at a gun show last year. At first, I absolutely loved the bluing and the bone grips. That's why I had to buy it, but I grew out of it pretty quick. I changed the grips and the sights, then sold it around July.
  9. Not plugging my monitor into the GPU instead of the IO in the back is a mistake I've made before. Leave the built in gpu settings as is and don't touch the drivers. You should just plug in the GPU, wire it up and then download and install the latest driver for your GPU. For Nvidia you'll download GeForce and it makes it really easy. AMD GPU's I am not really knowing. I would go to the manufactures website and go from there.
  10. Glad to hear that. I just got rid of a Kimber and that's why it and a few others aren't on my list. She was a real sweetie, but I don't regret it.
  11. Hey if that makes you happy then more power to you buddy. 'The last 5% of quality' for anything is always expensive, unfortunately. Have you owned any of them? There is a break in period that makes a big difference. I'm sure you value a clean gun just as much as I do too. The choices in the poll are there for a reason. Ed Brown's, Wilson Combats and Les Baers are in as brands and not as one example of specifically custom firearm. We will have to agree to disagree. I wouldn't buy a Springfield Professional, but it sure doesn't exist just for fun or marketing.
  12. All I can say is a had 2 razer nagas for over 2 years each and they were both fantastic. I used at least half of the keypad almost every day. Wireless MMO mice, I am not knowing. I mostly use a G602 now, but the 6 buttons on the side are basically useless to me. It has worked on every surface I tired in my home though.
  13. What PSU do you have? How much power does your system draw? Are all your cables plugged in all the way? What kind of weather are you experiencing? How old is this set up? How hot did your CPU get before shutting down? Is it in an enclosed box?
  14. Did you watch one video of Honest Outlaw on YouTube and now you are against any 1911 that cost over $600? Why do you think the Springfield Professional exists?
