    jaypro got a reaction from Dive5885 in Planning on upgrading my PC but what should I upgrade?   
    Look up the games you are looking to play.  If you are a "play on release" type person, you should stay away from SLI/CF.  Not many triple A titles come with SLI/CF at release nowadays, and many games don't even bother SLI/CF support at all.  1 GPU is the way to go.

    jaypro got a reaction from dukethedj in What should I review next?   
    When reviewing the SurfaceBook , can you review the Nvidia GPU with the popular multiplayer games over your usual AAA graphic games?
     
    I would assume people who want to game on the SurfaceBook are more interested in games like CS:GO, League of Legends, DOTA2, TF2, and how those perform, rather than Battlefront, Witcher, etc.

    jaypro got a reaction from iRiley in PCIe 3.0 Lanes with 2xGPU + Intel 750 PCIe Z97 vs X99   
    It obviously comes down to cost.  In my opinion the cost of upgrade from Z97 to X99 definitely does not warrant having your GPU run at a full 16x 16x.  With SLI graphics cards running PCI-E 3.0 8x 8x  will have minimal impact on your gaming.
     
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=rctaLgK5stA, video discussing 16x vs 8x.
     
    Go with Z97 unless you really need the CPU horsepower provided by X99.  Anybody who needs the CPU horsepower of the X99 chipset already knows they need it.  If you think you need it, you probably don't.
     
    If you plan on spending the same money on Z97 vs X99, upgrades to other components will have a much bigger impacts than the platform.  A quick and dirty example of this would be 
     
    Z97 + SLI 980Tis will cost similar to X99 SLI 980, and the first config will outperform the second for most use cases.

    jaypro got a reaction from Balaguru_BR5 in Cheapest Gaming Rig?   
    It is multiple generations old.  You probably won't even be able to find compatible hardware (at a reasonable price) even if you wanted to upgrade.
     
    More detail:
     
    The motherboard socket (where your CPU connects to) is very outdated and can't be used anymore.
    An OEM 300W PSU most likely won't be able to power a dedicated GPU.
    Your 500GB Hard drive may even still be IDE, which you'd have to buy extra adapters just to plug in.
    If I remember correctly, LGA775 still uses DDR2, which is just hitting 2 generations old (and in terms of RAM, that is pretty big)
     
     
    Also, everything goes on sale.  You can save a lot of money by buying things on sale.  Motherboards, for example, buy the cheapest one that is compatible.  Same probably goes with RAM, HDD and PSU, unless you start looking at some no-name 0 reviews stuff.

    This might help you out.
     
    As long as you put your outro's with identically framing, you can just copy paste annotations from one video to another. 
     
    Annotations are just an XML file in which you can then edit and push it to all your videos.

    jaypro got a reaction from hahnn in Anyone else want lower production value on some of Linus' videos?   
    Before you call me crazy for asking for lower production value, read my explanation or at least the TL;DR
     
    Back in the earlier "unboxing" days, Linus was able to pump out multiple videos a day, whereas now it seems to have become ~1 video a day, with a larger team behind him.  I assume this is due to the high ramp up in production value, having to write scripts, using teleprompters, cute editing, fancy cinematography, etc.  However, it seems that Linus and co try to apply this higher production value to all of their videos across the board, and I think that if they were to scale back to have a quicker turnaround time, it would be beneficial to the viewer.
     
    From my viewpoint at least, there are two reasons I tune into Linus' channel.  
     
    The first reason is I plan on buying X product, and I check if he has made a review on it.  For these reviews, I appreciate the higher quality videos, with more in-depth reviews and opinions.
     
    The second reason I watch videos is to learn about products I have never heard about before, that interest me to see what it is and what it does, and whether or not I impulse buy it.  Products like that book lamp.  It seems the team spent an excessive amount of time on the book lamp.  The main purpose of the video, to me at least, was to make me aware of the product rather than to convince me to buy the product.
    For these videos, I think Linus should go back to his older 'unboxing' style videos.  It is not that I don't value these "show-and-tell" type products, but the chances I buy a product that I was unaware of before and just learned about from Linus' video is slim.  Like finding a needle in a haystack.  Therefore quantity > quality.  Churn more of them out with a lower production value than your "Tier 1" products.
     
    TL;DR Trade some production value on some less-big-market videos to make more videos.

    jaypro got a reaction from Genecidalic in Why so much HATE on Razer Products   
    I think the volume and variety of stuff that Razer offers is why they get so much hate.
     
    Volume-wise, because they move so many products, there are bound to be more people with faulty products who then generalize and say that all Razer products suck.
     
    Also, you get those elitists who look down on Razer because they sell so many different things.  Audiophiles hate razer audio gear - like they hate bose and friends.  Keyboard fanatics hate razer gear because they aren't Filcos or Duckys.  
     
    Then, you get people who say Razer is overpriced and expensive for shitty quality.  These people just don't understand that products are priced as high as they can and sell.  You can't compare the price of a no-brand mouse with a razer mouse, even if it is cheaper and has superior build quality.  The no-brand company HAD to price it cheaper or else nobody would buy it.
