  1. Razer Blade 14, i would even take a used one , both laptops blow away my desktop, and crushes my current laptop that crashes just running a pokemon go bot, wth??(btw, i dont cheat , im just running the bot because niantic banned my account for taking over 15 gyms in one night after i drove for 6 damn hours with my kids, some fool reported me and im using the bots to kill all the gyms that he takes over, lol.)
  2. Your only option would have probably been to return the ram to Amazon and order from corsair, have you tried calling them? i recently purchased a PSU from them and they sent out a k70 keyboard after they setup the whole return/exchange process i told them to just cancel the PSU and refund my money, about 20 minutes later they called back and said keep the keyboard and they refunded my money(which was told to me by members in this forum stating this is what they usually do), all they asked was i take pictures of the keyboard from all sides and it was mine to keep. from my understanding they do this a lot, much more than other vendors out there, if you buy it directly from them they make all the profit, when they sell through amazon some of that price goes to amazon and cuts into their profit margin, its partially greed. but most of the time its just how business works these days. thats why its always good to check prices on various sites before purchase. unfortunately pcpartpicker cant cover all sites but it would be good if it did
  3. most 4.0 dongles come with A2DP i use one to connect with all my headsets http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=a9_asi_1?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aa2dp+dongle&keywords=a2dp+dongle&ie=UTF8&qid=1462308121 i bought this cheap dongle on sale for $3USD and i works for all my wireless headsets(bludio tubine, aukey, skullcandy) as well as controllers, it doesn't say it supports A2DP but that profile has been around for ages so i doubt any manufacturer wouldn't have that in the dongle http://www.dx.com/p/ultra-mini-bluetooth-csr-4-0-usb-dongle-adapter-white-149425#.VykOAvmDFBc and it was plug and play with windows 10 thankfully , because it didnt say it was even compatible with 10, but for $3 i just decided to buy it.
  4. have you tried looking at AC filters? pretty much the same material, and is usually available at your local wal-mart or hardware store
  5. punch cards, , seriously, then in college they were still teaching about vacuum tubes and other BS, when we finally got into programming, just BASIC, mind you, the professor didn't know WTF he was talking about and we got into an argument and i ended up throwing the textbook at him and got kicked out of college, haha.
  6. you can start here as the prices run from $30-$150 http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=4k+tv+box&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3A4k+tv+box this is one that i have but bought via aliexpress for $60, the 2gb vs 1g makes a difference as well as the 16gb vs 8gb but i also have the lower end $30 version that works ok for what it is. http://www.amazon.com/Arrival-Epteam-Android-5-1lollipop-Rk3368/dp/B0152X3IRG and i also bought one of these just for kicks, it's ok but windows is limited and the screen was unresponsive after upgrade to win 10(forced) took a long time of searching to get it back to stock, http://www.amazon.com/Desktop-Windows-Android-Updated-Version/dp/B00ZXBDZMQ/
  7. have you tried using a live cd and booting from that to run the antivirus or hirens boot cd to run an AV program?
  8. you could save $100 since there is no point to water cool your cpu with a non-k, almost $400 for a 970 is a bit too much for that price you could get a pre-build like this http://slickdeals.net/f/8685819-hp-envy-750se-desktop-i7-6700-2tb-hdd-16gb-ddr4-6gb-gtx-980-ti-win-10-1135-free-shipping?src=sticky r9 390's are going for less than $300 on sale with 8gb vram so i would go for that instead
  9. gotcha, too bad you dont live out here in hawaii i got some older pc parts i keep telling myself to sell but im too lazy to test them. try watching this site for deals http://slickdeals.net/deals/computers/ and get this chrome extension, you can set the prices you are looking for and it will email you if it gets to that price or lower on amazon since you are going to piece meal the pc, might help save a few dollars. http://camelcamelcamel.com/
  10. the 7559 is a great laptop, my son bought one and it has almost the same specs as my msi gt72 but has way more battery life and works great for his college schedule, check some deals here http://slickdeals.net/deals/laptop/
  11. you could get a refurb from newegg like this and save the trouble of building and maybe use the balance to throw in a ssd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883282436 check walmart locally if you have one, they were clearing out most of the acer systems for less than $300
  12. idk about future proofing but the core is a good start, just make sure there is a good psu to go with it
  13. did you clear the nickname in your google? https://aboutme.google.com/
  14. im not sure on the newer phones but there is a program the will actually reset the counter so you can send it in for warranty, it's on skipsoft.net, when i first starting flashing phones it was one of my main tools for rooting, flashing roms, installing twrp etc. he used to always be on xda developers. you could try and research into his all in one software, i stopped buying samsung cause i just couldnt afford it anymore so idk if the triangle away function works on the newer phones
  15. i wouldn't mind getting the omni either, but it will be ridiculous to ship here. I have so much crap in my house i will probably be sitting down and playing because i have heard people say hanging the cord from the ceiling is not an option, idk why but until mine arrives i wont know for sure. all i need is for some of my fool friends tripping over the cord and wrecking my headset and pc, im sure there will be some instances like with what happened with the wii and its controller. as for now the rift will have to be my choice
