    star_pilot475 got a reaction from Origami Cactus in Should you spend extra on a higher end CPU to future proof your system?   
    For us, *cough* low budget-gamers, it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money on the cpu, and have to cheap out in other areas.

    star_pilot475 reacted to Origami Cactus in Razer vs corsair vs hyperx   
    I would go full Logitech, they have the highest quality stuff in general, but all Corsair could be good too, if you can tolerate the Icue software.

    star_pilot475 got a reaction from wisedrgn in Improve current rig? Or build new?   
    @wisedrgn Completely up to you, but maybe it’s time to upgrade. Your current i7 is still solid, but new stuff completely blows it out of the water. Here’s an example build of a pretty insane system under $2500 that you could upgrade to.

    star_pilot475 got a reaction from Epimetheus in Upgrading,opinions if its worth it? (Gaming)   
    It would be a good upgrade @Apm90x but that motherboard isn't so great, and neither is the ram as @Epimetheus said. 
    maybe something like this could be better, with a better quality motherboard and faster ram (plus more quantity too) for under £250

    Would be really cool to see a really maxed out mITX build with perhaps dual watercooled GPU, but in a really tiny enclosure. Think something like this.

    star_pilot475 got a reaction from TechyBen in Is there any software that makes your computer faster (not hardware fix)?   
    I’ve been using Linux Mint on my laptop with a Celeron 900 (single core) and 4gb of ram. It’s actually fast and can play a YouTube video without crashing like it did while on windows 10. Could be a solid idea for you too @youself

    star_pilot475 reacted to Damascus in Modifying a Dell Optiplex 9020, Help me with your Recommendations   
    Yeah, it's not going to OC.  Throw any GPU you want in there as well, the 4790k can keep up with any modern GPU pretty well

    Apple will just pass on the additional cost to end customers
    The only downside is losing people who shouldn't be buying Apple products in the first place
     
    I consider this a win

    star_pilot475 reacted to RollinLower in If I buy the 980 ti, wouldnt it be almost the same as a titan x?   
    depends what kind of Titan X.
    the 980Ti comes pretty close to the Maxwell Titan X, tough the Pascal Titan X runs circles around both of them.
