  1. Also excited about the respec.  Think I might try out a melee build, seeing as I have all the gear for it.  With more damage on some nodes/items, you can now perhaps invest in more life/armour/etc.  Still dont think it will be viable end game, but will be fun to try :)

  2. Got a Samsung and LG, both working perfectly.  They didn't have stock of the Asus.


    The Zalman I tried everything with, HDMI,VGA, all different settings, the best i could get from it was 55ms average response time.


    On the LG straight out of the box, got the claimed 14ms response time, which is good enough.

    The samsung's performance is excellent, I've not measured it's response time yet.  Will do so tonight, but very happy with both.

  3. I recently bought two Zalman TM270va 27" screens.  Thinking a 2ms response time is more than enough, as my current one has 16ms, and I have no ghosting/blurring of image on it.


    To my surprise though, anything that moves on the screen gets blurred so bad, that you can't even read text, eg. of items that dropped in games or so forth.  Moving around, cause the entire environment to change color due to the colors bluring/ghosting over earch other.  Completely and totally not a gaming screen.


    So now I'm going to try and exchange this screen tomorrow, I might have the option to choose from the following 3:


    Asus VK278Q 27"

    Samsung s27B550V 27"

    LG E2770V-bf 27"


    I've been searching for decent response time measurements on these screens but cannot find anything so far.


    Can anyone please help if they perhaps have one of these screens, to test it using PixPerAn, to see what latency they get on them, or if you can find a review of them were the response time is tested I'd appreciate it.


    With PixPerAn I get an average of about 55ms for the Zalman screen :(  In games the black actually get smeerd, thats how bad it is.

  4. Really depends on the day and the people I interact with.  People from my previous company, we'd drink anywhere from 8 cups or more, currenly drink about 5+ d day.  Also helps you sleep better.  I love Coffee! *sip of coffee* It's all in the ritual  *sip of coffee* It's how the coffee machine grinds the beans *sip of coffee* it's how it flows out of the spouts into the mug *sip of coffee* It's the aromas of the freshly grounded beans *sip of coffee* It's the bitter smooth texture *sip of coffee* What the? someone drank all my coffee, brb.

  5. My wife and I chatted online and so we didn't see one another until like 3 months of chatting online. Wasn't really eager to send fotos of each other either. We connected that way. I'm pretty sure she is not with me for my looks (which I dont have) :D as for money, she makes way more than me.


    It's sad to see someone so hurt that he rejects the world. Going through a traumatic event with friends and relationships can really skew your views, and it's only then when we see if they really were friends/partners. I miss my wife everyday, from the time I leave home, until we meet again. She completes me. Like any couple we have our differences, but what is important is how we resolve them, and move on.


    I can guarantee you, you're better off single in terms of avoiding some conflict and hurt, but when it works, there's nothing better in this world.


    *also we dont really do "valentines" as each day is special to us.

  6. A nice board from Asus, personally I wouldn't put this board in the HTPC section, it's form factor is way to big.

    Most highend pc's can be used for HTPC use ofc, but I think in the HTPC section small with only the necessary features is a winner.


    Excellent review though :) Kudos.

    Two 15" sonosubs, takes awesomeness to the next level ;)


    I still need to build my new floorstanders, and subwoofers. Have all the drivers, just need to get some time on the cnc milling machine :)

  8. 7 minutes tops to build a PC if you know what you're doing, at $10 an hour, that is nothing.

    If you need to setup windows, updates, AV, drivers, blah blah blah, that stuff takes time.


    I do about $50/hour for repairs/backups/blah blah blah, thats my special price for friends of friends that I know.


    Building a PC I'd do for free though, aint nothing to it, although I've seen some people mess that up badly...


    Money for a pc build usually comes from the parts.

  9. I had the Razer Barracuda 5.1 headphones. Was much better than my $5 headset.

    I new have Sennheiser 558. The razer did have a better soundstage for counterstrike, I found that it's more difficult to place ppl with the sennheisers.

    However the difference in sound quality is huge, I can faster tell that someone is close with the sennheisers than the razers.

    I've not used virtual sound.

  10. So I've been working as a Software developer (delphi/c#/php/java/js/etc) for the past 7 years going on 8.

    I recently changed job, and I still don't feel that sense of something new or exciting or anything really. Its pretty much just another job. Doing what I did at a different place, even if it's a different industry.

    What would you guys do if you could start your own business, or where would you want to work. Some days I long for the simple life of carpentry, which is my hobby at the moment.

  11. Put the i3 2100 back, do a bios upgrade maybe they added support later for it? You can check the site for support of cpus on the mobo.


    Well, Hello :)


    I had an issue i wanted to ask you guys about.

    I was helping my cousin with his new CPU (I5 3570k) but, when we manage to get it on the mobo, it only gave black screen and 3 short beeps.

    We thought it was the memory, so, we changed them of position and and everything we could, but, no difference.


    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-board-dh67cl.html/ this is the mobo


    the cpu an I5 3570k he had an i3 2100 installed, and the ram was, some Kingston VERY short sticksm 4Gb each, supposed to be 1333 don't know anything else, what do you think was the problem? :)



  12. For R26000 theres a lot you can buy, are you sure that is the budget ? If so, I have quite a few suggestions that I can post - Mainly that 3770K at a ripoff price of R6760, I got my 3930K for less !!


    Yeap, saved up R26 000. Must go into pc :)

  13. Hi All,


    I have a friend who is looking to build a new pc. He currently has an old P4, 478 pin or something, well he has saved up some loot, so time to spend :D


    This is what we are currently looking at(We are in South Africa so R#### can be divided by 7.8 for $####):

    Things in RED are final :P Unless you can give a good reason why not to take it.


    All recommendations/chanes appreciated with a reason ;) Thanks
