  1. Chiptunes; the tunes I listen to are typically composed on 8-bit machines such as the NES and Commodore 64, so the resulting sound almost all bass and treble w/ basically no mids. Sometimes I'll listen to tunes that used FM Synthesis (ie Sega Genesis/MegaDrive) which is more rounded out toward the lower mids (depending on the game). On the other hand... Heavy Metal; I typically stay within 5 genres and subgenres of Heavy Metal. Those being Thrash Metal (early Metallica, Slayer, et al), NWOBHM (Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, et al), Doom Metal (Black Sabbath and the many bands inspired
  2. I'm coming from Status Audio CB-1 closed back headphones, and they recently broke (right speaker hanging by a wire, technically still works as of this writing). One of the main things I liked about it, and what helped it to last so long (just over 2 years), is that you could detach the cable from the headphones if you wanted to transport them outside your home. Any recommendations?
  3. What was the verdict for the EVGA B3 to eventually land it in Tier 4? I don't want to go through 100+ pages (page 135 or so, onward, when the initial bait and switch controversy happened).
  4. Can I have a dumbed down TL;DR so I can explain the upcoming situation to my tech illiterate family?
  5. Ask and ye shall recieve: OpenRA, an open source client capable of running the original C&C (aka Tiberian Dawn), Red Alert, and Dune 2000. TF2 falls under my criteria of games with Free-to-Play mechanics. In TF2's case, it is not much (hats), but it is there.
  6. DISCLAIMER: First, I want to apologize for the admittedly clickbait title, I couldn't think of anything better given the topic. Second, the following games and links do not involve Free-to-Play mechanics, piracy, or grey market sites. Third, I am not associated with any of the following developers or (if applicable) publishers. My reasoning for this post is because I am sick (almost literally) of what AAA gaming has become, and it is too much of a hassle to sift through the indie games market. As such, my logic is this: The only way to go is back. 1. First on my l
  7. My brother is requiring more power to drive his new headphones (Status Audio OB-1), which is quite high in its requirements (1,600 mW @ 54 Ohms). As a result, the onboard audio on the motherboard isn't sufficient anymore. I’m looking for a solution capable of driving these headphones, averaging $100 USD, the highest I'll go is $120 USD. If you want me to spend more, you will need to do some convincing.
  8. You would be able to run it just fine, as long as you have at least 2 GB of RAM. You would be able to run with less to an extent, but it wouldn't run as smooth.
  9. I will try that when the fans arrive. In the mean time, his computer will remain off since I don't trust the default airflow configuration (2 x 120mm exhaust, 1 top, 1 rear).
  10. I built one of my brothers his own computer today, and he intends to get case fans to put in the front panel within the next few days. The problem is... I can't get the thing off to save my life. It is a NZXT Source 530. Instead of flexible clips that snap to an inner edge in the case (a la OEM cases), there are these knobs of some sort (pictured below). Now, according to the manual, I'm supposed to remove both side panels, then (somehow) lift the front panel from the bottom. Does it just come out with some force? I should also mention that my other brother's case (Rosewill Armor EVO) faces th
  11. There's promoting it, and then there's shoving it down people's throats. This is a list of the KBs (so far) that involve Windows 10 upgrade and/or its backported telemetry. Source: https://github.com/th3power/aegis-voat Many of these KBs try to hide themselves as "Important" or "Recommended" updates.
  12. Or even worse, their computer doesn't support it. I've been continuing to update, and periodically removing any Windows 10 BS using this: https://github.com/th3power/aegis-voat Uninstalls any (known) Windows 10 Upgrade KBs, Telemetry KBs, and more. Whatever isn't hidden by this, I check each one and hide it myself.

This latest wave of insanity makes want to switch to linux, if only the games I play supported it. From KB 3139929's description: Emphasis mine. These so called "nonsecurity-related fixes" are basically stealthy attempts to get more people on Windows 10. I don't use IE, but
