  1. Hey all! Just built a new gaming/productivity rig and am currently using a sub-par usb wifi adapter since my router is on another floor. Any suggestions on good PCI-e wifi cards?
  2. Hello forum! I have this super old spare laptop lying around and want to turn it into a classic game emulator but it is super slow. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 with an Intel Celeron Dual Core processor in it and 2 GB of DDR2-800 memory (talk about old lol). It also has a super old 160 GB HDD. Because this laptop is so old I am wondering would upgrading the storage drive to an SSD be worth it, or should I not bother? Thanks
  3. I will probably be doing bigger projects down the road. For the time being they are smaller but I might want to experiment with some bigger projects on my own.
  4. I only half answered your question, my bad. Not really sure specific types of programming, but I do plan to possibly make games in my free time or be an indie dev at some point.
  5. My job will most likely involve programming, possibly some virtualization and the such. I am currently working on a Bachelor's in CS.
  6. Hello! I am planning a build for the future, and am thinking of what processor I should go with. I want to game on this computer but I will probably also be doing a bunch of programming too, so I was wondering what CPU would be best optimized for this kind of build? *Edit: the build budget will be ~$2000 USD
  7. Just woke up from a super intense dream, but as it ended there was a squarespace sponsor slot for some convention that doesn't exist given by Linus.
  8. So I am just putting together a list of parts for fun for a future build I may do, and I was looking for a long term storage option (at least 2TB) other than the SSD for the OS. I looked at the WD Black because of the great performance, but then a few lines down, I see the same amount of storage on a Seagate Barracuda for half the price! What exactly is the difference that makes the WD Black so much more expensive? Is the extra price worth it?
  9. I looked at the ATH-M40X and ModMic and almost went with it, but it went over budget a bit much, and didn't want to go used, so I went with the Cloud II's from HyperX because they have great performance and are built well for the price.
  10. lol this is so late, but I did end up getting this laptop and it has suited me fantastically, and will throughout college and then some
  11. Hello! I am looking for good suggestions on a gaming headset for around $100.

  13. This fits perfectly even if you need a monitor/OS
  14. I forgot to mention you should really go with DDR4 RAM in a build like this. Other wise it's looking pretty solid
  15. Maybe, but I would go with at least a 5th generation Core i7 with that modern graphics card. Or if he is willing to, you could get a GTX 1070, and with the money saved get a 6th gen Core i7
  16. If you're going to spend the money on a GTX 1080, you are going to want to get a Core i7 for maximum performance in gaming for more CPU intensive titles. If you don't you may spend $2000 and find that you don't get the best performance you could be getting.
  17. I am not really looking for a gaming laptop, it's more for doing Computer Science projects and light video editing, and other school related stuff.
  18. I will be taking a Computer Science class, do some music making, and possibly some light video editing
  19. Here is the link to the laptop I am talking about: http://bit.ly/29yfBp8 I am looking around at laptops for school and don't really want to go over $1,000 (USD). I found this one and the specs impressed me but I am not sure if I should go with it. The laptop features a 6th Gen. Core i7-6500U processor, a 512GB ssd, 12GB of DDR4 SDRAM, and integrated intel graphics. The screen also rotates all the way around into a tablet-ish looking mode. The big question is, is it worth the money?
