  1. Congratulations!! i will be honest, i kinda already thought you two were married by the way you two nag on each other LOL
  2. your friend was shot and killed last night at a party... i got this call from another buddy of mine... on mothers day of all days. the only thing i could think about while he was telling me what had happened was that his mom had to of receive that call as well. just broke my heart.
  3. here is one thing to think about, a SINGLE HDD will never surpass SATA2 capabilities. but, if you run 2 drives in RAID0 on SATA3 you will definitely see a huge difference between putting that same RAID on a SATA2 controller. you will get about an extra 100-200 mb/s read speed, write speed will only increase slightly i wish i had the screenshots to give hard evidence. but this is a problem i just had with my mobo. wish i had another sata 3 controller LOL
  4. the first number indicates how many full range speakers that it supports, the .1 means that it supports a sub-woofer. almost everything now a days is compatible with a sub-woofer, so the .1 is kind of a moot statement. now about having a 3 speaker setup, that might be difficult because i dont know if there is a 3.1 standard. problems come about when you use an incompatible speaker setup with the wrong standard, you will experience sound loss. Like a conversation is really far away or muffled. this can come about when a 5.1 stereo with only 2 speakers and a woofer tries to push out 90% of the volume through the back satellites, and they aren't there so all you get is the 10% from the front. (made up percentages just a generalization, the concept holds true though.)
  5. ha ha ha it came in an ammo can. made me laugh a little.... and um yeah... so have you fired that bad boy up yet
  6. Consoles are a specialized "computer" from their OS to the hardware. their hardware is not like that of a computer specifically because the buses are built better and their specialized OS utilize those buses more efficiently. a console essentially has like a 32x pcie bus for graphics (over exaggerated example) and the CPU utilizes every bit of it and that goes along with the rest of the hardware, if you have ever opened up a 360 you would see that their Mobo contains more specialized links between I/O and CPU. the OS' boot faster because they do not do as much in pre-boot i.e. registry checks and the sort. in a nutshell consoles are built to use much cheaper technology yet utilize it past its normal capacity. EDIT: clarified "statistic" , also note that Microsoft embosses their name on the mobo LOL (under llama)
  7. thats what... eehhhh... she said! but to also stay on subject. i never realized what a can of worms i was going to start when i started this post. Wev stated a few good points, yes corporations are in the business of making money, we all get that. Everyone wants to make just a few more bucks, But most of that motivation is to make yours and your family's lives better in some way. how is it that those extra few "bucks" helping these corporations. they are not building a better future, else we would see the benefits of. they are not making their product better/more efficient/greener etc... it is that greed that drives them, not the enhancements for clients.
  8. wow that link has great info. didnt know you could do this. +1
  9. YAY now i can get to bed!!!! 227AM here congrats to you two!!
  10. WAH LOL i will be honest, this is entertaining to watch
  11. yeah this round (R3) is getting messed up. is there really anything wrong with that?
  12. its all good, i just feel kinda.. dumb
  13. and i feel like a tool. so i actually joined right at the end of the first numbers give away, and then Bosco said he was gonna have another numbers contest for the 5970.. kinda got excited. So when it went up i kinda didnt read ALL of the original post, saw the number spread and jumped through and posted. and there it is, you gotta be a member for over 30 days. NEways good luck everyone.
