  1. They're not misleading graphs though - the only person being mislead is the viewer that doesn't take into account the values for the graphs. The information may very well be fully accurate.
  2. It simply makes the differences more obvious, and if you keep within the context of the graph, you are left with a more accurate picture. For people just looking at the graphs without considering the data contained within, yeah it can be a problem, but people shouldn't be doing that, and should be ensuring they're getting all the proper information from a source before coming to a conclusion. LMG has done nothing wrong here. I would argue that the second graph you showed is more misleading because it makes it seem like they're all the same when they're not. A truly accurate depiction of something won't try to hide subtle differences as your second graph tries to do.
  3. By being a helpful member of the community.
  4. I'm not part of LMG, but I do hope you enjoy the forum though.
  5. Hi there.
  6. You can limit them on the machines themselves.
  7. I actually found this interesting band a week ago, and they make some decent music. Warning: It has some screamo elements in it.
  8. I hope you're not trying to somehow keep your speeds the same while she's uploading because I don't think it works that way at all.
  9. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a pretty amazing game so far.

  10. Unless otherwise stated, the refresh rate will most likely remain the same.
  11. While it's true that not all education pathways lead to high paying jobs, sometimes people want to go to school to simply learn everything they can that is interesting to them. 


    Is going to school bad when you're just looking for education and want to be smart versus only going for money? Chasing after money is not bad, but when it consumes you completely, that's bad. 


    Money isn't everything. Learning is an amazing experience, and that should be the motivator, not hopes of making loads of money.

      Be a board certified doctor. But I'm 26 this year and I think I'm a bit too old for it already since med school is more or less 16 years of schooling. 

      • 4 years med school 
      • 3-4 years post graduate internship 
      • 4 years specialization 
      • 3-4 years subspecialization

      But why is that your dream career?

      If it's what you really want to do, it's what you want to do.


      I used to have some dreams of working for the game industry. Then I figured I wouldn't like the crunch times.


      Plus I'm spoiled with the 9/80 schedule

  12. Thread moved to CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory. This isn't a Hot Deal. These are at MSRP.
  13. Lower temperatures increase chip longevity.
  14. Are you delidding it and leaving the die off, or are you delidding it and replacing the stock thermal compound underneath?
  15. If I "upgrade"(still need to consider if it's worth it) to Ryzen from Ivy Bridge, I'm going to be effectively minitiarizing my build into a Micro ATX form factor, or Mini ITX. I like the Cosmos II, but it's too big and heavy for my purposes.

      1600 is most likely what I'll be getting. But I'm also considering upgrading the video card(currently have a Windforce 970). 

    3. PCGuy_5960


      Definitely worth it IMO


      For the GPU, I would recommend:

      Vega 56, 1070 or used 980 Ti :D

      I would go ryzen if I could justify spending $900+ on 2x cores and maybe 8% better single core (and losing half of my ram)
