    need new gaming speakers

    yes and yes, seems like getting the sound right is very subjective ...individual preferences matter and money,...i looked hard at the clear klipish setup and the bose companion, but the dollars,...trust though, if these don't sound right they will be going to the wifes office ! Honey these dont sound right to me. You need new speakers so I can get something that sounds right to me! Sadly I have used that tactic before. SO how do they sound? imma find out tomorrow,...still in shipment ..) ; ...send me the review format and i'll write 'em up...
  2. moore's law makes it hard to plunk down a couple grand for the fastest most wonderful hardware the world has ever seen, only to have it outclassed and de-rated in a couple of years, and fallen by the wayside,...since AMD is already programming a move to 12nm, and the inevitable growth and expansion of the die, then it seems likely that intel must have at least something similar in the works,...it makes more sense to me (as a mediocre gamer/hack) to follow the chipset and platform, buy a little bit lower cpu in the moment, and put the left over $$ away to use for the next most fastest mass of 3D tri-gates transistors ever melded into silicon in that chipset... i will likely make a move later this year or early next year, but haven't decided on AMD or Intel but i'm watching and listening closely now and they have my attention...let's see where it goes ... ...

    The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

    oh man the bose were great as far as i'm concerned,...there's a new very similar model called the "bose companion" i think and they have very good reviews too...i was playing mass effect andromeda kinda loud when they started cracking and vibrating....but maybe it's just time for something new...

    The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

    ok well i just bought a Logitech Z506 5.1 from the Walmart online,...my fear is that it won't last as long as the old ones but it will be set up in surround sound configuration so we'll see...

    oops appologies for the double double staff,...please take one of these out for me !
  9. yes well, 6.1ghz will be out of my league for years to come. And like the one poster said "Cute stunt, but I don't see it making me more likely to buy one of these. Then again, nothing short of a tragic brain injury would do that.".....my tragic brain injury will come when i get the credit card bill... hahaha !
  10. yes, i saw something along these lines last week while searching out some future stock investment ideas, but what i saw didn't have much in the way of hardware changes or time frames...but the wave of the future for sure... http://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Introduces-New-12nm-FinFET-Technology-for-High-Performance-Applications-New-12LP-technology-offers-density-and-performance-improvement-over-current-generation-Platform-features-1002388669
  11. thank you frank for your thorough evaluations, above and beyond as usual,...I'd be curious to know what you find out from MSI about the gaming stats and how to achieve improvements. after reading this, my little I7- 5930 suddenly feels very inadequate, but the cost to level up in this arena seems prohibitive at least for now...
  12. anybody notice that globalfoundries is on the move again http://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Introduces-New-12nm-FinFET-Technology-for-High-Performance-Applications-New-12LP-technology-offers-density-and-performance-improvement-over-current-generation-Platform-features-1002388669

    Threadripper CPU Opened and Dies Examined

    i guess i'm late to the game again but i was just doing some comparison shopping on the newegg and i see that the 8 core 1900x is the only one listed, that is equipped with the "virtualization technology", and i'm asking myself why... ..seems like kind of a waste to create a new socket, package, and platform, and not include all of the bells and whistles...or maybe it's just a typo ? is there some reason why the two big brothers are not given the virtualization ??

    Threadripper CPU Opened and Dies Examined

    i watched the whole vid and ok , it was kinda long and tedious imho,...but now we know there are no fake dummy dies in a threadripper,...1000 euros down the drain...

    [WTB] LGA1156 Motherboard

    welp, that wasn't a real popular socket, kind of a dead end, but i did put together a machine on a gigabyte p55-ud5 ...only thing is the sheila is still using it for her main office machine and daily web browser (shrug)...it's still up and running and she would kill me if i changed anything,...she won't even let me put win 10 on it,....crazy woman likes her win 8.1,...but there are a few 1156 mobos out there in the world...
  18. i was doing some comparison this morning and quickly realized that the 1900x and i7-7820 are very similar quality and features wise...180watts versus 140watts means more heat heat for the 1900x but the bonus is the increased base clock....but the more i look at them the more i like to see a working comparison...
  19. very interesting read, and a lot of work went into it, so thank you Isaiah,...

  23. i was notified by Steam today that someone or something tried to access my steam account with an ip addy from Minsk Belarus. So as usual when this sort of thing happens, i am spending my free time re-writing all of my web passwords and making them work harder for it,... ...so if you happen to be a steam player, be on the lookout for trouble and be aware... prepare for the worst !
