  1. People, I'm not selling the parts individually. I have socket 771 CPUs and server DDR2 lying around. I can make more profit by turning it into a budget gaming PC, which is why I need to know if the motherboard will work. I'm not looking into other architectures at the moment. I just want an answer to my question.
  2. I need a socket 771 board because I have a couple socket 771 CPUs leftover from a server build.
  3. Specifically this server board: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-p-n-CPU-S5000SL-A-Dual-Xeon-CPU-LGA771-Server-Motherboard-p-n-S5000PSL-/282076604136?hash=item41ad1366e8:g:BfkAAOSw37tWCIuV#rwid Just judging from the pictures it has a couple of full length PCIe slots. I have very bad luck with server boards though, so I don't just want to buy it and then not have it work. Second opinions are always nice.
  4. Monoprice is selling brand new 7700Ks on Ebay for $310 at the moment. Get that or wait for Ryzen? Currently have a 3770K.

      Well, if you wait for Ryzen chances are you'll still be able to get a 7700K for around the same price if Ryzen turns out to be a flop. 

  5. Did you even play the beta? It ran smooth maxed out on my system. I can tell you right now that you don't need a 1080 or a rumored 1080 Ti to play it on ultra. I have a 1070. It ran perfectly fine at 1080p 60fps.
  6. The deal is going on at both Best Buy and Samsung. Other places may have it as well, not sure. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-55-class-54-6-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hd-tv-black/5217300.p?skuId=5217300&productCategoryId= http://www.samsung.com/us/televisions-home-theater/tvs/4k-uhd-tvs/55-class-ku6290-6-series-4k-uhd-tv-2016-model-un55ku6290fxza/ Here's most of the specs, found in the Samsung link. Killer deal.
  7. This is my go-to for Windows and Office keys, although they raised their prices a few months back. I've seen some super cheap Windows 10 Pro keys pop up on Ebay for like $5. Essentially the same type of keys, but I wonder if they're more likely to get deactivated since it's being sold on Ebay.
  8. Just bought a smurf account last night at full price (not Origins Edition, so $40). Talked to a Bliz rep to try to refund it... I did not get a refund.
  9. Some dude on Reddit is selling a 5960X for $680 OBO. Damn good deal if anybody is looking to upgrade.

    There's a ton of DIY recipes online. I'm sure they taste better and will be cheaper.
  11. This thread is lit. Please keep up the entertainment.
  12. Whether you like him or not, or agree with him or not, I don't think anybody can deny that he gets stuff done. Definitely something a lot of politicians from both sides of the aisle should pay attention to.
  13. Has anybody else played the Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta? if so, how do you guys like it? I'm an RTS scrub, so something a lot more casual like this is awesome for me. Really enjoying it! Loved the first Halo Wars as well.

  14. Except even on Jet's website they're advertising it as a 16GB kit, 4 4GB sticks.
  15. It's officially official now. Going to Japan in May! ^_^

      My itinerary isn't completed yet, but I have a master list of stuff that I may or may not do if you want to see it.

  16. I'm okay with this. 2G sucks anyways. Just convert that 2G spectrum into LTE. T-Mobile and Verizon are planning on doing the same thing. In fact, T-Mobile has been doing this for a while now, but they still have 2G up in some areas.

  18. It's the 2nd option on the menu screen.
  19. I have that same monitor. It bothers my eyes too. Never had this issue with my other monitor. I messed around with the monitor settings for awhile until I found something that worked for me. Brightness - 40 Contrast - 50 Saturation - 50 (Grayed out, can't change) Color Temp - Normal Smart View - Off Blue Light Filter - Level 0 Didn't really change much, but this helped a ton for me.
  20. See, if I were into Zelda, sure, I would be all over the Switch. But I'm not. I don't really have any interest in the franchise. I was considering getting Breath of the Wild because it looked kinda cool. I was hoping for Mario Kart 8 to launch with it, because I'm huge into that, but it's not. The way I see it, the only 2 games that I would play on it, I can just play on my WiiU, and save my money for when there's other, more interesting games out. I already own Mario Kart 8 with every DLC, so that's done. All I would have to do is buy Breath of the Wild.
  21. So, the Switch itself looks dope. The software though... Eh. There's 2 confirmed launch games: Zelda and that motion control game that nobody's going to buy. Next one that we know of coming out next is pretty much a remake of Mario Kart 8, coming out on April 28th. It's a finished game. Why not launch it with the Switch. I'm just very confused about their launch lineup. The upcoming games look cool. Xenoblade 2? Seems cool. Mario Odyssey? Looks cool. With only 2 confirmed games set to launch with the console (let's be real, just 1 game), I'm not exactly sure if this is an instant b
  22. You're definitely right about this. From experience, at Best Buy we can print out pretty much whatever kind of label we want.
  23. Was really hoping for a lower price, around $300 or so. I would still buy it at $400 though, but maybe not instantly. Depends what the launch games would be. Either way we'll hopefully know more about pricing and games in the next few hours when the Switch presentation goes live.
  24. Little bummed out that my Best Buy is giving everybody crap hours now. Doesn't matter if you're good or bad, knowledgeable or not. It's ridiculous. May have to find another job, which saddens me because I really enjoy working at Best Buy. (Pretty much venting.)
