    LIGISTX got a reaction from JoshM in Looking for a single slot card that supports 2x 2560x1600 displays   
    The drop would be so non existent, you would never know. And you don't have to game in surround if you don't want. There is an option as far as I know. Don't even bother with the 640 at all. the 780's can push the monitors with zero problem.

    You can SLI with different brands, and you can also SLI with different RAM amounts, but you will only get the smallest amount to use... I am not sure about crossfire, hopefully someone else helps you out with those questions.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from JolliWasp in new Gaming PC build. need advice, comment and recomendations   
    I still say 16 gigs of RAM is a good idea, RAM isn't that expensive, and more is always better. I know that isn't really true, but I honestly don't think 8 gigs is enough either anymore, so 16 is the option to go for imo. I have 12 in my system and I think that is just perfect, but its triple channel so 12 is actually an option that works. 
     
    And an i7, with new games maybe using more threads, isn't a bad option. Plus i7's are i7's... they are kinda amazing.

    The PSU is way overkill. All you need it about 650 watts max for those components. Can save A BUNCH of money on that. Its a baller PSU, but its so overkill its silly. With the money you save on the PSU alone, you can get a GTX 780! Also, for pure gaming, maybe a i5 and more GPU power would be good, although don't get me wrong, I recommend i7's all day, every time. Also, 2133 is a bit pointless, with an OC on the 4770k, it might not even run the RAM at 2133, it should but might have to drop it down to 1866 anyways. And its been proven so many times that RAM speed is basically meaningless. I usually say just go 1600, or 1866 if you really want. With the savings on the PSU and RAM, can easily up the GPU power to a 780 or maybe even 780 ti

    No point in an i7 for gaming. An i5 will game just as well as an i7 because hyperthreading doesn't really benefit games. 
    High speed ram is not worth the money just for gaming. In most cases, the difference is almost always negligible with a dedicated gpu. 
    Why 16GB ram? 
    Psu is overkill. A decent 550w is already plenty. 750w would be enough for sli.
     
    Christmas is a while from now. Plan later--at most 2-3 days before you buy. Parts and prices change frequently so there's little point planning so early.

    Ill wait for someone with more SLI experience to chime in, but I do know for sure the mixing of 2 GB and 4 GB versions will not work, or if it does it will not help you at all. The effective memory is only that of one card, and it would be that of the smallest RAM card.

    Haven't got a lot of time but here's the article.
    Sorry if it's a repost.
    I shall update later

    EDIT:
     
     
    So, having had a proper read of the article, and now having some time on my hands, here are my thoughts:
    I think it's great that a huge multinational coorporation is getting behind this. It's been too long that DDoS attacks have been a problem, and I think it needs this kind of a push to stop such attacks. Since it's google, I think the technology should be sound, and we could be seeing a great piece of consumer software in the future to protect us not only from DDoS attacks, but also from unwanted surveillance.
     
    I'm looking forward to seeing how this unravels.

    IdeaStormer is right. And if you only have 2 SATA 3's, you will see serious performance loss by using SATA 2's for the additional drives, although I guess 4 SSD's in RAID 0 even on SATA 2 is pretty frikin fast...

    Thanks Guys , decided to use XBMC for the HTPC and laptops, and I found out that I could map my movie drive on android using ES file Explorer , and get access to all my files which is perfect! Plus there is now a XBMC made remote for android which is great, no need to use the stupid mouse and keyboard on the couch anymore! It can even throw trailers of movies i have up, which is awesome. Thanks for your help

    Very very minor differences performance wise. The looks of the SP's outweigh the 2c difference in my opinion.

    I think the gap between the two will get wider with the advent of BF4. We should see games using more than 4 cores in the next year. I love my i7 so I'm biased, but I'd stick with the i7.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from chirag.rh in CPU binning question   
    Dude, thanks! This is exactly what I thought, especially everything in your previous post, but I never really had anyone word for word back me up, and you did a pretty sweet job. I am a bit sad Intel doesn't release any of the numbers as I was going to try and focus in on that a bit, but honestly, not like I was going to do hours worth of statistical analysis on it anyways...
     
    But thanks for the great info! I will definitely be using a lot of that for my paper.
     
    Also to answer chirag.rh about server stuff, I would assume the XEON's are just the "better" i7's for instance. I assume (might be wrong) that they will run at the nominal xeon speed, but do it with less volts, thus lasting longer with less strain on the chip? Might not be right, this is probably easy to find out though, just look at what xeons run at volts wise. I guess I will have to look into that and put it in my paper as well .

    LIGISTX got a reaction from habowh43 in Prebuilt vs custom NAS solution   
    If you need any help with it let me know. I am not a master of it by any means, but I have been using for a while now and really like its functionality. Also, when you do get it set up, set up a XFS filesystem not a EXT4 (the current linux distro OMV is using only allows EXT4 arrays to be 16 TB or smaller). This might not seem like a size you will ever reach, but in case you one day do... better start with an option that will let you then be in trouble later

    Wow guys! Thanks a lot for the replies! It really help out a lot.

    I'm definitely going to go down the custom route now and {EAC} Shoot em UP, I took a look at OMV and it seems to be better for my NAS needs.

    Again thanks a lot guys, each and everyone of you are awesome!

    LIGISTX got a reaction from habowh43 in Prebuilt vs custom NAS solution   
    I have a custom built nas, but I run openmediavault. I looked into freenas, but the ZFS file system it uses, while AMAZING, needs 1 GB of RAM per 1 TB of harddrive space. Which normally not a huge issue, I have a 7x3tb RAID 6 array, and planning to add more soon, so RAM was an issue for me. Besides that tho, I definitely say build your own, its much more expandable in the future, such as adding more drives.

    Before I say anything I'll just start off with the link your all looking for in this text anyway
    https://www.google.com/maps/views/streetview/cern?gl=us

      I'm sure most of you wont read this as you will be looking at the streetview, but here is some more info for those still here.
    The Large Hadron Colider, located at CERN near Geneva Switzerland, is at 27 kilometers the longest particle accelerator in the world.
    The Street view shows the entire length of the LHC and the accompanying sensors: ATLAS, ALICE, CMS and LHCb
     
    You can also see the labyrinth of tunnels and labs of the LHC complex.
