  1. I've been wanting to post this thread for the longest since its been bugging me.

     

     

    But are desktop PC's dying? I don't know if it's just me but all of my friends are using laptops instead and don't really own a desktop anymore. It seems like smart phones, tablets, and laptops are taking over. When I had to take a mandatory computer repair class in college almost everyone in that class used laptops at home instead. There were some enthusiasts that like custom computers and even they had laptops instead of a desktop. Even my professor that taught things about windows computers was more interested in Mac's OS. I found that ridiculous since he spent the whole semester babbling on about Mac's OS.

     

    The way desktops use more electricity, take up more space, and not portable make them less usable to the average consumer. And on top of that almost all of my friends use freakin MacBooks and suck Apple's d*** a lot. On top of me thinking desktop PC's are dying, it also seems like no one uses windows anymore. My college has since switched to all Mac's along with a host of other universities I've been to.

     

    I know enthusiasts like us will say NEVER, but the truth is people like us that are interested in building custom computers only make up a small percentage of people that buy computers.

     

    I could be wrong, but I'm just calling what I see. Just has me wondering sometimes if in the next 10 years no one will be into computer modding anymore. :mellow:


  2. Have some Extra things I don't need and have to get rid of:

     

     

     

     

    Bought this extra and don't need it for my build. It's brand new without the box. Never used. MSRP on Newegg is $60 you can have it from me for $40.

  3. Was wondering if you guys can give me some suggestions on good games out right now. Anything but suspense/horror lol.

     

    I've been playing BF3 since December and all the bugs get on my nerves plus I'm starting to get bored of playing it. It use to be real addicting at one point. I also was playing Arkham city before and beat it already. Got the game for free with the purchase of my Samsung SSD at Microcenter.

     

     

     

    No Diablo though lol.


  4. Just recently switching out the black tubing and added white tubing for some contrast. I also sold my Asus GTX 570 and was planning on getting a GTX 670 but found a lightly used EVGA GTX 580 with a Watercool Heatkiller Black Hole Edition waterblock for $250!!!!!! I couldn't pass up that crazy deal. The block is worth $120 by itself. Also since then I sold my Raven case and got this gorgeous 800D. So here it is as she stands today:

    I still have some sorting of things to do but you get the idea :thumbsup:


  5. Up for sale is a lightly used Asus Direct CUII GTX 570. Haven't used it that much besides doing some gaming with in for BF3 and Arkham City. This thing overclocks like a beast thanks to it's dual fan and copper heatpipe design. And did I mention this video card is gigantic! Probably the biggest video card I've ever seen and had. This will handle any game you throw at it on maxed out settings.

     

    I'm providing the original packaging, manuals, accesories, etc etc. No scratches or damage on the backplate or any part of the video card.

     

    MSRP on Newegg.com is $329.99 plus shipping:

  6. lol I ended up using a loading trolly to get it to class. It still was a pain in the butt because once I wheeled it across the parking lot, I had to carry it up 4 flights of stairs. It's not exactly 150 pounds, but it feels like it. I can't even lift it up myself. Actually the class laughed at me cause my computer is so big and heavy. Took 2 people to lift it to the front of the class.

     

    It was worth it though since I got an A+ on the project.


  7. Been wanting to get a laptop for a while now. I'll admit I never had a laptop before. I've always used desktops because I'm an enthusiast just like the rest of you :thumbsup:. This will be my first time actually owning one lol. And really I never been an Apple guy when it comes to computers. It wasn't until I was in the Apple area in Microcenter that I realized I love the Macbook Air. It just looks amazing!

     

    Here is what I'm looking for in a laptop:

     

    Web browsing

    Email

    Music

    very very light gaming

    Ultra thin design

    Lightweight

    Good battery life

     

    What do you guys think of this one?

     

    http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0370579

     

    Trying to keep it at a $1k budget. I just need it to do my hw on for school and carry to class to take notes and such. Watch Youtube, browse, etc. Maybe some very light gaming once and a while like Diablo 3. Suggestions?

     

    By the way I see that it comes with 2 gb of RAM. Was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the RAM on a Macbook Air? I only see tutorials on how to upgrade the RAM on a Pro but not Air. I'm also want to install Windows 7 on it too and dual boot.

    Wanted to do an exhaust but prefer my quiet interior lol


  9. Push/pull is definitely worth it, especially if you're trying to keep noise down.

     

     

    My HAF 932 easily fits a thick radiator (XSPC RX360) with 25mm fans in push/pull at the top of the case. You'll sacrifice the top two 5.25" bays, but who actually uses them anyway? :lol: This is a pic of my old setup, but the radiator is still in the same place:

    EDIT: To keep costs down you might consider one of these two: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12700/ex-rad-225/Magicool_Extreme_Triple_120mm_Radiator_LC-RADI360S.html?tl=g30c95s161#blank and http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8523/ex-rad-146/XSPC_RX360_Triple_120mm_Radiator_Rev_2.html?tl=g30c95s161
