  1. as far as I know, it is still shipped by the seller to the buyer, but it offers protection for the buyer.
  2. swappa is trustworthy. it's the safest place to buy and sell used phones, and they verify clean identifiers.
  3. Nexus 5X is within your budget, and is probably the best option all around, but if you need more than 16GB of on device storage, you'll have to drop $400 for the 32GB model edit: as a@isle9 said, the Moto X pure is a great option, and I'd say it's be better overall than the nexus if you aren't into modding. also has a MicroSD slot which is a big plus in my opinion. available to ship immediately at B&H http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1196054&gclid=Cj0KEQjw5Z63BRCLqqLtpc6dk7gBEiQA0OuhsAHYZI4CY20JDZn7E6FhLSQRSe1td3QBhLKSOP7bcPQaAuZk8P8HAQ&a
  4. I haven't seen a good reason to upgrade in a while. my sandy bridge CPU is good enough for me.
  5. why not get some automotive split loom while you're at it
  6. this is normal. that extra space is used for wear leveling, firmware, and for swapping in when you have uncorrectable sectors. you have 512 GB of space, you just can't use it all right now, and it's to increase reliability dramatically.
  7. I am a lover of the samsung drives, I have 2 840 evos personally, and 4 in my household. I haven't had any failures with my OCZ drives, but I wouldn't trust it with anything important.
  8. *nods in approval still would recommend a better SSD like an 850 evo, but for the most part it's not bad. also you should probably pick up a newer hard drive, as old laptop drives are prone to failure, and not in a graceful way
  9. I disagree. you spend every moment of your computing experience interacting with the monitor. no $1500 rig should run at 1080p IMO. I would rather have a $500 monitor and a $400 computer than a $700 computer and a $200 monitor.
  10. my $0.02 is that you should be spending more money on the parts that will make your computer a joy to use whether gaming or browsing forums. a good monitor, keyboard, and mouse will do a lot more for you than a $300 Motherboard, (a $125 mobo would be fine) don't do crossfire. when you need more performance, sell your current GPU and buy the best you can. crossfire is unnecessarily noisy and sucks power, not to mention relying on support of crossfire with that title.
  11. try both in the same memory channel. both on the right 2, and then both on the left 2 slots. if this works, run in the same channel. technically it will cut your memory bandwidth in half, but usually you already have more than you need, and i'd be suprised if it made any noticable impact on real world performance Good Luck!
  12. determine which stick it doesn't boot with if they all work, determine which slot or slots don't work. chances are, it will be one of the 2. if you have dead sticks, RMA ram, usuallythey carry a very long warranty that isn't a hassle to deal with. if it's a dead slot, could be the motherboard or a dead/wonky channel on the CPU's memory controler. process of elimination until you find the specific culprit
  13. a used 2600k for $200 is a little bit steep, but if you could get it for $150 it'd be well worth it. the system I just built is using an old i5-2400 and it's pretty awesome. significantly faster than a new I3, which would have a similar price to what I paid
  14. 850 will still be enough if you want to go overkill, the HX1000i isn't too expensive, and it is very power efficient available here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139082
