  1. How'd this work out? Looking into getting on for myself, in between wd black and samsung evo(500gb same price atm)
  2. Congrats to the winners! Thanks again occ for running this! (fingers crossed for next year!)
  3. Nice, i thought it evolved into a 'Christmas in July' contest. Nice to see it back on this side of the year.
  4. Congrats to all the winners! Thanks for running this again and have a happy New Year everyone
  5. That is awsome, congrats! Merry Christmas everyone!
  6. you still looking for one? I'm upgrading my system and I planning on selling off my Gigabyte EX58-UD4p. I'll prob be selling off the rest of the rig too : OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model ... Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes intel i7 920 (woops, should have read the previous post, I misread as well. Well still thinking of selling off the stuff anyhow)
  7. Thanks for all the advice. I have a gigabyte ud5(i forgett the rest of part numbers). I actually looked into the Xeon on the board, but I decided that I would do a bit of an overall upgrade (while my wife allows it). Im about 3-4 weeks out so I'll keep an eye on the prices. Thanks again
  8. Yes, I noticed that with my last Intel build that I could not upgrade due to the change in slot. Looks like I'll be leaning towards the am4 then. Any recommendations on a solid mb around the 200 USD range? (That is for the advice by the way)
  9. It does not require compiling at the moment, but it will in the future. I'll be working on a grant that hopefully should open up a few more doors, but there is no guarantee at the moment. Therefore I am hoping to put something together that can do everything I need (within reason).
  10. I just hit a physical limit with my current build and need to invest in a new cpu, mb and memory. I currently have an i7 920 on an x58 mb and 6gb of memory, but I am starting to develop some vr applications for some research I am working on. Since my system specs cannot cut it for the oculus rift, I am looking to upgrade. I have not been keeping up on much more than graphics cards so i am trying to figure out the best platform and processor to go forward with. Im in between the lga 1151, 2066, or the AM4 and I'm hoping to spend around $600 for the 3 componants. So for vr applications, some solidworks, and a bit of gaming, what is reccomended? Any advice would be helpful since I'm finding many if the reviews I am reading are from fanbois and I can't filter out the bias.
  11. Thanks for running this, count me in.
