  1. Need a recommendation for a surround sound headset

    good to know. i guess i'll be sticking with my current headphones (which seriously make me look like a 14yo kid who likes those dorito taco bell things and CoD).
  2. Need a recommendation for a surround sound headset

    no one uses these?
  3. Sale/Want 3.0

    sure, whatever. i haven't booted it in, honestly, a year or so. if i want to do music again i'll just install another SSD on my main computer and dual boot into w7 set up for it.
  4. Sale/Want 3.0

    both the MS store credit and the game are gone. i am, however, continuing to debate selling my music workstation. it's an older i7 (8 cores @3ghz) and 16gb DDR3 ram, with a couple TB of storage and a discrete graphics card for multi-monitor setups, in a really over-large rackmount case. it still handles large projects pretty easily, thanks to the huge amount of cores and the excellent i7 architecture, but would get blow up by any current i7 on the market. i could sell it within driving distance of rochester ny for probably 400$ OBO, or shipped for 50-100 more (i'd need a new case for it) plus shipping, likely around 30-40$ for a system of this size. i'd be amenable to trades as well, since it's just taking up space and i don't have any sunken investment in it. it is, however, way more computer than you could ever get for 400ish$, so if you're interested, let me know and we can talk it out. edit: forgot to mention that this is basically a perfect slave machine if you want to get into that kind of setup. tons of cpu power, no fancy extra crap.

    it's a corsair 500r. ton of room in that case. the side panel swooshes add a ton of space in the back, which is nice for people with way too many spare bits in a case. i didn't post them because i took few of the final stuff. this is it without the 8 sticks of ram in it, so pretty much done. still can't believe i hid the thunderbolt cable as well as i did. that's the rainbow cable next to the GFX card. for a non-custom wiring job, i think it turned out darn good, especially considering the amount of crap in the case. the optical drive could have been cleaner if i'd put it near the GFX card, maybe, but i wasn't in the mood to move it again.

    for some reason i transcribed skylake into i7 in my brain, and i don't know how. that's like apples and dishwashers. skylakes are doing nice because haswell-e is really only a power-user cpu, and skylake as a whole is totally worth it too. not a lot of people need the extra core, and you're right - they don't overclock without some effort. they're not particularly practical for most users because of the lga2011-3 requirements.
  7. i'm looking to upgrade from my current 2.0 headphones (which i love) to a set of surround sound headphones. i've had the x12s for about four years, so i'm out of touch with the market on gaming headsets. i'd love some suggestions. what do i need to look for? is there a difference between 5.1 and 7.1? i've heard that 5.1 is actually unique drivers whereas the 7.1 version is simulated. is that the case? any suggestions on comfort of fit? i'm not overly concerned about the price as long as it isn't bananas - i use them every night so i care more about comfort and consistency than everything. if they work with an XB1, that'd be awesome.
  8. I want to build you a computer

    new computer? =D nice! honestly i don't find the i7 stuff available now to be that overpriced for what it does. the 5930k is selling at about 580$ with an MSRP of 595$, so maybe i don't know what you mean?
  9. Lightning's Modeling Career

    that's fair. i don't get the uncanny effect as much because i don't know lightning in any perspective other than those games, so i guess it doesn't bother me as much.
  10. I want to build you a computer

    ssd's the way to go, and i don't think i did anything too crazy with those cables. just some wire ties, i think. just make sure you've got an equivalent power connecter nearby and accessible and you'll be fine. make sure you've got a SATA-III cable too (6Gbps, not SATA-II, which is 3Gbps). they should say on the plastic casing around the cable.
  11. Lightning's Modeling Career

    those poses look pretty standard for modern modeling. don't really see the issue. i think it's sorta fun that a game character (from a game that a lot of people didn't like, too!) is being used in a pop culture ad. nice to see the market penetration. remind me what the issue is here? is it because a character that's notoriously not girly being used for a purse ad? or is it because louis vuitton's overpriced? i don't think anyone disagrees with the idea that those purses cost more than they should, but supply/demand blah blah blah. they sell at that price because they can sell at that price.
  12. I want to build you a computer

    why bother? go size or speed. trying to get the middle of them is not a successful strategy. a 512gb SSD right now is 170$ (mushkin reactor). a 256gb SSD is on sale for 65 right now. just go for those. if you only have one slot and desperately need 1tb, get an external and an SSD.
  13. I want to build you a computer

    i don't run antivirus or anti-malware on my main pc.
  14. I want to build you a computer

    so connect it one time, then. my connection restriction is due to a static IP that's blocked at the router level from accessing external traffic. it's got full access to the rest of my network that way. i just disable that firewall for a few minutes, activate, and then wall it off again.
  15. I want to build you a computer

    there's two schools of thought on that. one is that more cores is better, and even an old i7 (my music pc still has an i7-860 in it, 2.93ghz x8, sells for about 100$ now) can be really nice. the other is that ghz rules supreme, and the i5-4790 is certainly a good example of that. look at what you're using, and what you want to use, and scale appropriately. if you're using a 2500K right now and want to double your performance, a 4790 might not be enough - or maybe it will be, depending on whether your apps are properly and consistently multithreaded. i usually get specific examples so i can suss out what's good and not for this. as for keeping it offline, frankly i just buy the software and then download a crack. that way, i own it, and i use it in the way i want to (which is on a pc that can't access the internet). very few VSTs really don't have any offline activation, though, there's only a few i've had to do that for.
