  1. Wow, that's hilarious. This CPU is over 3 years old, you would think that the performance difference would be a little more than 20% I mean come on, my GTX 980 is hardly a year old and the 1080 is like 60%+ faster, IN A YEAR. Come on Intel... Guess I'll keep waiting until Intel steps up their game. Its mighty tempting to upgrade as its been so long, and I truly question how long this PC will last... but 20%? Hell no, that's just a waste.
  2. I currently have an i7 3770K, I've been wanting to upgrade my CPU for the past while and cannot determine whether or not the upgrade would be worth while. I have been looking at the 6700K and 6800K. Main area I am hoping for improvement would be in Adobe Premiere CC where I am exporting H264 1080p video. Will I notice a big gain in performance? Would the 6800K be a lot faster or is the 6700K enough of an upgrade already? Or should I wait yet another generation. I have a GTX 980 which already reduces encoding times significantly. Any other noticeable improvements? Gaming performance is near identical from what I've seen so I'm not concerned about that. If you have any suggestions please let me know!
  3. I don't know which "nice headset" to choose from thats my problem.
  4. There is an entire forum (notebookreview forum) dedicated entirely to laptops and notebooks... there is a market and community for them.
  5. Yes I figured that out now. Again when reading description they made it seem like mobile devices meaning phones and tablets. And you don't really use laptops when you are "mobile", laptops are just portable. I think mobile as when you're on the move.
  6. Yea I don't really know the answer. I guess people don't think of the value of portability and instead only look at benchmarks and cost in comparison to desktops.
  7. Ok I understand, I don't really think of gaming notebooks when I read Mobile Gaming... I think phones, tablets etc. as description says.
  8. Not sure if this is right place to post, but I just thought I'd throw this out there anywhere. I just feel as though there should be a gaming notebook sub-forum or whatever it is called or even just a laptop/notebook sub forum. Its tech related and lots of people are interested in gaming laptops and the like (I'm one of those people). Just saying my opinion, this is a tech forum and I feel a laptop category would be great. Reviews, discussion of new laptops, laptop graphics cards etc. etc.
  9. A lot of people have said that those m50's are the best bang for buck headphones out there. I love em', look and all. Just again, closed ear design and the isolation of that kinda bothers me. If I can't find anything else I'll try to find somewhere to try em'.
  10. I've tried a bunch of headsets, G930 is one of em'. I like it but they are closed ear design and as I mentioned i don't really like closed And plus when wearing em' for longer hours they did start to get a little hot.
  11. Cool to run into a fan on the forums on first post PC 360's are nice but I'm not sure if they're what Im looking for, still an option though !
  12. Currently have Corsair Vengenace 1500 V1, decent headset but I think I wanna upgrade (love the mic quality on it though I must say). Looking for something that is good for... well as much as possible, I guess gaming is sort of priority but I do listen to a good bit of music and edit a lot of video. Also do game-commentarys so it'd be nice if the mic was not crap. I generally like open ear headsets as I like being able to hear around me somewhat - closed just feels un-natural. The headset has to able to last for long hours of editing or gaming and not get hot or sweaty. I guess I'd love to just get a headset (all in one) generally not a fan of external mic. Also size-wise the smaller the better, this 1500 is massive and well... messes up my hair a lot worse than previous headsets (lol), the smaller/discrete-r the better, I like nice looking headsets I don't want like the "Sager" of headsets (good value but look/feel like crap). So whats the best I can do with >$150? Or further suggestions (maybe wait and get headset+amp combo or something? idk), if there's something great for $100, or something just a bit more that's miles better, gimme some options if you want Thanks for reading!
