    biohazard918 got a reaction from jonrosalia in So I just bricked two keyboards   
    I am acutely aware. I would like to know who decided they should share the same physical header.

    biohazard918 got a reaction from T_ech in Final Verdict - $1500 Gaming PC Secret Shopper pt4   
    My take away is that main gear ran away with this. They may not have provided the fastest machine for the money but the customer support was miles ahead of the companies that beat them on performance. They provided decent value for money hardware wise and won in the important metric of how much of a headache is this going to be for me down the road if I recommend somebody buy a pc from them. The best value for money is usually going to be diy. You go to a system integrator for something that should just work out of the box and for the customer support if it doesn't. Everyone else pretty much failed in that regard. Ibuypower was shockly bad imo and I will no longer recommend them to people even though they provide some of the best bang for the buck hardware wise.

    Why were the computers only scored and won based on performance when the whole show included sales and support? This makes no sense, I thought it was about the best experience and product for the average Joe yet it was judged based on experience and PC professional enthusiasts.... 
     
    MainGear are the clear winners here, the final outcome is bonkers... I would only recommend MG to any friends or family who don’t give a flying F about getting 90fps instead of 80 in a game they play. 
     
    The judging felt like they just took the whole series and threw it away, ignored it, you could just have this video alone and it wouldn’t of mattered...

    biohazard918 got a reaction from ryan27968 in What should I review next?   
    I would like more stuff from china. I mean as serious reviews like you did with the keyboards. A round up or individual reviews of laptops and/or tablets that look like they could be good would be great instead of another "the cheapest X you can buy".
     
    Edit: I mention the keyboard video because I have one of the ones you reviewed sitting on my desk now and love it.

    biohazard918 got a reaction from Spooty in So what GPU should I get?   
    Get a new monitor you have no idea the difference it will make its one of the best upgrades you can do and its very noticeable I made the switch to a cheap 1080 ips display and my old tn display looks hideous next to it. You can get a 21 inch 1080p panel for around 120 to 130 here in the states no idea what it is israel. A 780 or 780ti for 1440 by 900 is to be blunt just stupid. Also your monitor is going to be running at 60hz at the native res you will only see 75hz at lower then native res idk what resolution that would be you would have to look it up. If you really want a higher frame rate get a 120hz or 144hz monitor. I can't recommend more then a 760 for your current monitor there is no point spending money in the name of "future proofing" a gpu. If you won't get a better monitor you are better off sticking the excess in the bank and buying a new card in a year or two when the 760 is no longer fast enough.

    biohazard918 got a reaction from Langdon in AMD system, any good?   
    The first one if your going to be doing video work generally speaking more threads is better i would think hard about getting a cheaper motherboard and going with an fx 8320 its a 160 dollar part http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113285 and if you buy one today newegg has a promo code for 30 dollars off. The a10 isn't bad but if you are going to be doing video work you will probably want something with some more beef. As for am3+ potentially being a dead socket who cares intel changes sockets all the time i'm on a sandy bridge i5 wheres my upgrade path? I don't think its a good idea to say buy such and such part now because you might be able put something better in it place at a future data kavari is unseen and unproven the 8320 is THE part to get for some one looking to do video work on a budget right now and It will probably outperform kavari in multi threaded workloads unless amd releases a 6 core apu. As for the 270X i think its an excellent choice for some one looking to game at 1080p on a budget.

    biohazard918 got a reaction from skullbringer in $600 build - Suggestions please   
    Depends on who you ask i guess I'm have been running a 6950 in my gaming rig for the last 18 months or so and its been cool quite and issue free my dads been using a pair of Athlon II quad cores for the last 3.5 years and apart from a dead hard drive they have been issue free. On the other hand i have a laptop with a phenom tricore in it and a 5650m and its run hot from day one when i play games on it temps reach 90c but i think thats more an issue with the fact that the oem skimped out of the cooling solution then any thing amd did. That said there reference gpu coolers suck and you will want one designed by the board partner.
     
    Here is what i threw together in about 30 minutes.

    I i picked parts with the option of running crossfire in the future its a full atx build as there aren't much in the way of micro atx AM3+ motherboards. I know you don't think you will need the space but look at how little price difference there is between your 250gb dive and the 1 tb drive i picked if you want to get into pc gaming you will probably need the space pc games are mainly digital distribution at this point in the last 3 years or so my steam library has grown to over 500gb in size and cross platform games are expected to balloon in size with both the xbone and the ps4 having a bluray dive and we aren't limited by the 360's dvd drive.
     
    I don't fell that 4gb of ram is enough these days there have been times when i have run out at 8gb and with both consoles having now large pools of fast ram I expect usage for games to increase in the near future. The 270X is a faster card then the 660 and similarly priced. Wasn't anything wrong with the case you chose as far as i can tell i just needed a bigger one for this build. You chose a solid power supply i saw no reason to change it. As for the motherboard i just chose what looked good it supports crossfire, overclocking, usb 3.0, 4 ram dimms and has 4 eggs on newegg with about 150 reviews. As for the cpu the i5 is faster in general but the 6300 is no slouch and is overclockable with the addition of a better cooler.
     
    If you want to go with a nvidia card i'm reasonably sure we could find the money with your budget to get a gtx 760.

    biohazard918 got a reaction from joelthezombie15 in Best $300 GPU?   
    I would wait until either the 280X supply catches up with demand or the next generation of cards launches. How ever I don't buy this idea that a 256bit memory bus can't address 4gb of ram those 4gb 760s and 770s exist for a reason and it makes a big difference in SLI at high resolution. Explain to me why 4gb of ram wouldn't work with a 256bit memory bus most CPUs only have a 128bit bus and can use way more then 4gb of ram. As far as i know the reason most cards with more then 2gb of ram have 384bit or 512bit buses is for bandwidth and not because its required to use more ram.
